The local paper recently published a letter to the editor that stated that Borough electric bills included a surcharge for customers who paid their bill by check. THIS IS INCORRECT. The 'C CHG' or "customer charge" is a a small flat fee that is charged on every bill, whether it is paid with cash, check or on-line banking. This fee is was established decades ago to help cover the fixes costs of the system as well as administrative costs with billing. The fee is currently $4.86 for residential accounts and slightly higher for commercial accounts. As you can imagine, there are some accounts/connections that have very small or no monthly $$ billing whatsoever. This charge helps pay for the system so that customer has access to the electricity when needed. Please contact the utility billing department at 973-593-3045 if you have any further questions.
