SOUTH ORANGE, NJ — South Orange Village has announced its summer hours, beginning the first week of June and running through Labor Day, including extended evening hours on Mondays.
The late hours on Monday evenings are a pilot program being launched in response to resident requests.
“We’ve heard our residents ask for late hours to pay taxes and utility bills in person, drop off permit applications and receive information on everything from permitting and voting to container days and trash pickup. It is our hope that this program will prove to better serve the needs and lifestyles of our residents,” village President Sheena Collum said.
South Orange residents can direct any questions or comments about this program to Deputy Administrator Julie Doran at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-378-7715, ext. 7723.
