The Tax Collector's Office in Rockaway Township is a division of the Finance Department and is charged with the:
- Reporting and enforcement of taxes
- Sewer maintenance fees
- Special assessments
Sewer maintenance are billed annually, based on a calendar year. The billing is for properties that are connected to Rockaway Township Sewer Lines.
The Sewer Maintenance rate has increased from $269 to $289 to improve system pump controls, provide sewer operating fund balance and to cover the increased cost of treatment of sewage usage. An aging system demands capital investments to prevent extreme rate increases due to system failures. Please keep in mind with this $20 rate increase, the Township still has one of the lowest sewer rates in Morris County.
2017 Sewer Maintenance Bills were mailed on May 22, 2017.
Payments are due by June 23, 2017 without penalties.
