2020 Paper Shredding Dates
19th Amendment Commemoration
The year 2020 marks the Centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote in the United States of America. The Monmouth County Clerk's Office has launched a year-long initiative to commemorate the centennial and to encourage the residents of Monmouth County to reflect upon the importance of voting rights and this historic milestone in American democracy.
Reminder To Borough Pet Owners
The 2020 Dog and Cat license renewals were mailed out the first week of January. Please return these into the Clerk’s Office as soon as possible! Late fees begin to accrue at $5 per month (per animal) beginning February 1st. State law requires that all licensed pets be current on their rabies vaccines at least through 11/1/2020.

CivicReady is our automated reverse telephone call system for emergencies - everyone is encouraged to sign up for this system.  You can choose to receive notifications to a landline number or mobile telephone number.  If you provide a mobile telephone number and/or e-mail address, you can receive text messages as well.  It is recommended that you include your physical address during registration to take advantage of an additional feature which allows for neighborhood-specific alerts. 

CivicReady alerts/notifications may be sent for the following reasons:

  • Conditions exist where affected members of the public could be or have the potential to be in immediate danger
  • There is an imminent potential for serious risk to life and property
  • Notification could aid in the apprehension of a criminal suspect
  • Notification could aid in the safe return of a lost child
  • Notification could aid in the safe return of a mentally, physically or emotionally challenged individual or an elderly patient (walk away from a nursing facility)
  • A large-scale public event, state of emergency, or severe weather
  • Conditions exist where traffic patterns and road access are affected
  • Time-sensitive information only when the dissemination of the information via alternative means of communication (e.g. municipal website or social media) will not be effective for rapidly informing the public
