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.

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.
