Moving into or out of a new house, condo, apartment, office space, retail establishment, or food establishment? If so, the information below will help you out:
Everyone that will be using electric and water utilities are required to fill out a yellow application card to be filed with the Electric and Water department. Application cards are located in the department office at Hartley Dodge Memorial Building, 50 Kings Road, on the 2nd floor.
Both the owner and tenant (if applicable) must fill out the application card prior to transfer of services.
Once you've filled out the application card, the utilities that you're responsible for will be transferred to your name and you'll be able to pay your utility bills online.
If you're moving out, it's the tenants responsibility to call and schedule the final electric and water readings.
Final readings are performed Monday through Friday between 8:00 A.M. and 2:30 P.M. The tenant must be present for the final reading and payment is due at that time by check only. If you're moving out over the weekend, final readings can be performed the Friday before or on Monday morning.
To schedule your final reading, please call the Utility Billing Office at (973) 593-3045 between 8:00 A.M. and 4:30 A.M. at least 5-10 business days ahead of time.
