General Fees and Charges

The following list covers most fees and charges imposed for services and admissions in the Borough. It is updated by Resolution of Council throughout the year. The schedule’s accuracy is reflected on the date listed. When amended, a revised schedule will be posted. This list can be used for general guidance and is usually up-to-date and accurate; however, for official rates contact the Borough office. Download the Fees and Charges Document

The second series of documents posted here address the tapping and connection fees imposed on various types of development or redevelopment in the Borough. Generally, the fees are imposed when new residential or nonresidential units are constructed, additional units (apartments) are added to existing properties, or there is a change in the nonresidential activity, which creates an increase in the load on the water or sewer system. The tapping fee rate schedule is developed after study by the Borough Engineer and established by ordinance. The schedule shown here was adopted by ordinance in 2015.  Download the Tapping Fee Bundle

If you have questions about any of the fees in either document, please contact the Borough office and we will help.
