Welcome to Florham Park Borough

Welcome

 

Welcome to the Borough of Florham Park, often referred to as "A Community of Volunteers". Florham Park is a small suburban community located in Southeastern Morris County, approximately 30 miles west of New York City. We are bordered on the south by Madison and Chatham Boroughs; on the north by Hanover and East Hanover Townships; on the west by Morris Township; and on the east by the Passaic River, The Borough is 7.6 square miles in size, and has a population of approximately 12,605. Our residents enjoy excellent schools, a wide variety of recreational activities, a beautiful library as well as many other activities such as our Summer Gazebo Concerts and our awesome 4th of July Parade and Fireworks Display.  Florham Park’s convenient location to trains, buses, and major airports, and a friendly small-town atmosphere make it easy to understand why Florham Park is one of Morris County’s most desirable communities to live in. The New York JETS now call Florham Park home with their State of the Art Training Facility and Corporate Headquarters located right here in Florham Park.


LATEST NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

FALL 2014 HYDRANT FLUSHING SCHEDULE

The Department of Community Services Water Division in a continuous effort to provide quality water to our customers will be conducting the 2014 fall hydrant flushing program commencing Monday, October 06, 2014. The program will take approximately one week to complete and will be conducted between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Systematically opening of fire hydrants in specific areas will take place to increase water flow which flushes any minerals and deposits from within waterlines. Removal of these sediments improves water clarity. An additional benefit derived from this program is each fire hydrant is tested for proper operation helping to insure firefighting capabilities in the event of an emergency.  For more information, please click here.


LEAF COLLECTION SCHEDULE

Leaf collection will begin the week of October 13th and will conclude the week of December 1st.  The leaf collection schedule can be found here.  The final leaf collection (mop up)  will start the week of December 9th.  Mop up will consist of one final pass through the entire Borough.  Residents should place leaves on the curb either loose or in biodegradable bags by the Monday morning of the scheduled pick up week. Residents are encouraged to bring their leaves to the Environmental Center on Fridays between 9:00AM and 2:00PM and Saturdays between 8:00AM and 12:00PM.  No loose leaves (tarped) will be accepted.  There are no contractors or commercial vehicles allowed. For more information, please click here.

Introducing JCP&L's Messaging Alerts and MyTown Page

http://www.matrixneworld.com/images/projects/JCPL_logo.jpgTo better serve their customers JCP&L has introduced its "24/7 Power Center", an industry leading online map that delivers fast and accurate outage information to desktop, smart phone and mobile devices. During major storm events or other emergencies, the maps will feature a prominent alert with links to important outage-related news, safety reminders, and additional information such as water and ice distribution locations.  The maps will also allow customers to quickly and easily report an outage.  The more customers who report an outage - either on the JCP&L website or by calling 1-888-544-4877 - the faster they can locate the cause of the outage. 

JCP&L has recently introduced alerts and text messaging to make it even easier for customers to access information about their service and account.  Also, the enhanced 24/7 Power Center and MyTown Municipal pages allows customers to access information about power outages and best available restoration times.  For more information, please click here.
