EMERALD ASH BORER IS HERE!

The Emerald Ash Border (EAB) is an insect which reliably kills ash trees. Having devastated ash trees in the mid-West for several years, it is now present throughout Monmouth County. Treatment before infection has taken hold is highly effective.  If untreated infected ash trees will die.

Colts Neck residents needing more information about managing EAB in their own trees can find it on the attached links from Rutgers University and the Monmouth County Parks System (MCPS).

WILDLIFE COMMITTEE MEETS SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 @ 7:00 P.M. – DEER MANAGEMENT

Residents are urged to attend the next meeting of the Wildlife Committee scheduled for September 25, 2017,  7:00 p.m.,  at Town Hall to discuss the potential for hunting on smaller lots (3 acres contiguous) to safely and economically address the growing deer and tick population, decrease the incidence of Lyme disease, reduce the loss to agriculture and damage to property and decrease the number of deer-related motor vehicle accidents .

By Ordinance No. 2016-17, hunting by licensed hunters is permitted on “parcels of three (3) acres or larger” which may be “aggregated contiguous acreage of more than one landowner”.   Requirements:

  • 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.

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.

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.
