Resolution 2016-124 – Establishing Halloween Curfew Hours
On November 8, 2016, Colts Neck voters will see the following referendum on the ballot:
“Should the Township of Colts Neck increase the annual levy for Open Space, Farmland and Historic Preservation, within the Township of Colts Neck from the amount of $0.012 per $100 to the amount of $0.025 per $100 of assessed valuation of real property?
The proposed referendum seeks to increase the dedicated farmland, open space and historic preservation tax from the current $0.012 to $0.025 per $100 of assessed valuation. The increase is being proposed to provide additional funds to afford the Township the ability to acquire additional land dedicated for farmland, open space and/or historic preservation, in furtherance of the Township’s commitment to the preservation of open space. (emphasis added)
For an average home assessed at $800,000, this would increase the tax payment from $96 per year to $200 per year. Revenues from this dedicated open space tax will be used for farmland, open space and historic preservation, including debt service. ”
Residents who have questions about the referendum are urged to attend a Township Committee meeting (October 12, October 26, 7:30 p.m., Town Hall) to clarify the intent of the referendum or to reach out to your elected representatives through the Township Administrator’s Office (732-462-5470, x 100).
