JCP&L power line tree trimming project

NG Gilbert is working throughout Township rights-of-way to clear power lines of branches and offending trees.

Property owners have signed statements with NG Gilbert accepting responsibility for removal of cut trees left in the right-of-way and their adjoining properties.

The Township will be sending notices to property owners reminding of the need to remove the fallen trees from the right-of-way and adjoining properties as soon as possible.

Please be sure to remove all cut trees from the front of your property - leaving a sign stating "Free Firewood" will certainly aid in the quick removal of the cut wood.

A Message From the Boonton Township Police Department

BTPD Urges Residents to Drive Safely During "National Distracted Driving Awareness Month"

The month of April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. During this month, the Boonton Township Police Department along with numerous other law enforcement agencies throughout the State participate in the "U Drive. U Text. U Pay." distracted driving enforcement campaign. This campaign aims to address one of the most urgent and dangerous driver behaviors; talking and texting while driving. The Boonton Township Police Department's message to drivers is that your attention should be focused solely on driving and nothing else. Any phone conversation, hand-held or hands-free, can be a dangerous distraction which takes your attention away from the road. Please join us this month and every month and help us make our roadways here in Boonton Township as safe as possible!
