customer charge on all electric bills Electric Utility

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.

PAVING DELAY - GREEN AVE Engineering Department

Cifelli & Son Construction, the General Contractor retained by the Borough of Madison to complete the resurfacing of Green Avenue, has announced paving operations have been delayed due to weather until the Monday following the holiday weekend. We apologize for the inconvenience of this delay, but the long term quality of the pavement surface course is important. Please keep Green Ave restricted to local traffic and use alternate routes such as Green Village Road where ever possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

Green Ave Milling & Paving Engineering Department

Cifelli & Son Construction, the General Contractor retained by the Borough of Madison to complete the resurfacing of Green Avenue, intends to begin milling operations on Thursday November 21, 2013 (two days) and paving operations the following Monday (two days), weather conditions permitting. Work will be phased to minimize access limitations for the Madison public. It is important to complete paving before the holiday weekend due to the potential for increasingly cold temperatures leading to material supply and acceptance issues. Property access during milling will not be compromised for more than one hour at individual locations. Generally access during final paving operations is restricted for half a day in the direct vicinity of work. Your cooperation is requested during the time of construction to remove/relocate the automobiles you intend to use by approximately 7:30 a.m. on final paving days when the contractor is active in your vicinity. This will minimize interruption of construction work and allow the contractor to finish as soon as possible. Temporary Parking on a minor local street within 1000 feet of your home/business may be anticipated with the cooperation of the Police Department. Emergency “NO PARKING” will be enforced by the Police Department during construction if vehicles impede progress. Specific scheduling problems may be directed to the office of the Borough Engineer. The Police Department can be contacted for traffic information and assistance. The inconvenience is temporary but the improvements will last for many years. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION !
