Notice Regarding 2021 Mercantile and Food Licenses
Dear Business Owners,
I am writing you today to let you know that the City Council and I are suspending the increase in fees for 2021 Mercantile and Food Licenses.
Just to give a little background, we made the decision to increase fees before the pandemic began. Our city has had a dramatic increase in cost in the Health Department and we have not raised these fees in over a decade.
If you sent a payment already with the increased fee, your payment will be sent back to you. A new bill will also be sent to you.
Since the beginning of this pandemic, it has been our goal to be there for our business community. We continue to offer grant opportunities and resources through our Economic and Community Development Department. This support will continue through 2021 and until this pandemic is over.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to our office (732-571-5640) or the Economic and Community Development Department (732-923-2040) as we will continue to get through this pandemic, together.
Mayor John Pallone
