DEER MANAGEMENT WITHIN THE TOWNSHIP OF COLTS NECK

Based on a recent Wildlife Committee report made to the Township Committee, there is an increased risk to public safety due to motor vehicle incidents with deer and an increased risk for the incidence of lime disease.  May 10, 2017 Report

By Ordinance No. 2016-17, hunting is permitted on “parcels of three (3) acres or larger” which may be “aggregated continuous acreage of more than one landowner”. This is a step forward designed to reduce the deer population and result in fewer motor vehicle accidents, reduced incidents of Lyme disease, reduced loss to agriculture and damage to property.

What is required to meet the amended ordinance requirements for hunting?

  • Must be private property.
  • Hunters must possess required licenses and zone permits issued by NJ State Fish & Wildlife Division for hunting white-tailed deer.
  • Hunters must carry written permission from all pertinent landowners while hunting. NO exceptions.

Summer months are the time to plan for the Fall 2017 hunting season.

Please e-mail the Wildlife Committee to discuss your needs:  coltsneckwildlifecommittee@gmail.com

ENERGY AGGREGATION (CNCEA) PROGRAM – UNAUTHORIZED SOLICITATIONS

Many Township residents are receiving telephone solicitations from companies who request electric account information, then find they have been switched to another electric provider without their authorization.  These callers are NOT part of the Township’s Energy Aggregation Program and no one from the Township’s program perform telephone solicitations.  Energy supply accounts are being switched from the Township’s Energy Aggregation Program electrical supplier, TriEagle Energy LP, to other companies often having a three year contract to follow!  If you have had your account moved from TriEagle Energy LP to another unauthorized company, please contact Town Hall (732-462-5470, x 100) to assist in returning you to the Colts Neck Energy Aggregation Program supplier, TriEagle Energy LP.

TriEagle Energy LP is the supplier of electric energy under the Township’s Energy Aggregation Program for a two-year period ending in December 2018.

The Colts Neck Energy Aggregation Program, Round II, now has its own location within this website.
