Council may extend grace period for tax bills tonight


Plainfield City Council may extend the grace period for 3rd Quarter tax bills at tonight's business meeting. The item may be added at the end of the regular meeting, which begins at 8:00 PM at the Council Chambers/Courthouse, Watchung Avenue at East 4th Street.

A new item has been put forward, Resoluion R 270-15, to extend the grace period owing to the late mailing of tax bills.

The online agenda includes no backup information about how much time is proposed to be added.

New items that are added after the Council's agenda-setting session must first be added to the business session agenda at that meeting, by a super-majority of five votes. Then, if added, the new item is deliberated and a vote taken in which only a majority of four is required for passage.

If you want to know more about the grace period extension, you can call the Tax Collector's office Tuesday at (908) 753-3214.
