ANIMAL CONTROL

 Florham Park animal control services are provided by Millburn Township Animal Control. Residents who are in need of these services or who want to report a lost pet must call the Florham Park Police (non-emergency) @ 973-377-2200.

It is very important that your pet wears his/her current registration tag for easy identification. If a dog is found to be loose and the owner is not known or cannot be located, the dog will be taken to the designated holding facility. The owner will be responsible for any impoundment fees and/or veterinary services provided.


FOR YOUR INFORMATION…

FERAL CATS

It is very tempting to feed feral cats because they look just like domestic cats. These animals are NOT domesticated. They have been born in the wild and may carry diseases and in some cases, rabies. The feeding of feral cats and other types of wildlife also disrupts their natural feeding habits and can result in wildlife being concentrated at artificial feeding areas like your yard. There are a number of ways to help keep feral cats away from your yard:

1. Remove Food: Feral cats will stay in any area where food is plentiful. Avoid feeding your own pets outdoors and cover trash scraps securely to keep from giving unwelcome cats an easy meal.

2. Close Shelter: All wild animals need a place to sleep and to raise their young. Board up holes in sheds and garages, under decks and porches, or in simple shelters such as wood piles or window wells to avoid providing this shelter to feral cats.

It is against the law in Florham Park to feed feral cats and other wildlife. Violators are subject to prosecution and fines.


DEAD DEER

Contact the Florham Park Police (973-377-2200) to report any dead deer in the roadway. If there is a deer carcass located on your property, it is your responsibility to arrange for its removal. This can be accomplished two ways:

Contact a carcass removal service to have the carcass removed at your expense.
Move the carcass to the roadway and contact the Florham Park Police to arrange for pick-up.


YOUNG WILDLIFE

Unless it is known that the mother has been killed or injured, the public is urged to leave young wildlife alone. Most times, what appears to be an orphaned young animal is not, and the best thing to do is to leave the animal where it is found.


DEAD BIRDS & SMALL ANIMALS

Dead birds are no longer tested for West Nile Virus, as it is no longer a threat. If you have a dead bird or any small animal on your property, wear rubber gloves and place the bird or animal in a garbage bag with the trash


NOCTURNAL ANIMALS OUT DURING THE DAY

If a usually nocturnal animal is out during the day, it does not necessarily mean that the animal is rabid. In the spring and summer it is not uncommon to see an adult raccoon out during daylight hours. In addition, while foxes are most active at night, they, like the raccoons, can be active anytime that food is available.

However, if there is a nocturnal animal out and behaving abnormally, call the FP Police at 973-377-2200. Abnormal behavior can be walking in circles, staggering and falling over, appearing disoriented, unusually aggressive or unusually tame.


PET LICENSING

All dogs and cats that are at least 7 months old must be licensed each year by the Borough of Florham Park as per Chapter 96 and Chapter 108 of the Code of Florham Park. Dog and cat licenses must be renewed by January 1st of each year. N.J. state law requires that all animals must show proof of a current rabies vaccination that is valid through November 1st of the licensing year in order to renew. There are no exceptions. For fee information and to download an application, click on the “Forms” tab on the home page, the pet license application will be listed under Board of Health Forms. Local ordinance prohibits anyone from feeding stray dogs and cats.


RABIES AND WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Pets can become infected with rabies through contact with rabid animals. Because of this, it is very important that your pet has an up-to-date rabies vaccination. Florham Park offers a free rabies vaccination clinic each November. You may also bring your pet to any state or municipally sponsored rabies clinic in any town or, or course, your veterinarian.

Do not feed or handle wild animals and especially avoid contact with all bats, raccoons, skunks, groundhogs, and foxes. Avoid contact with strays or pets other than your own as these animals may bite or scratch you and may not be vaccinated for rabies.


AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA) & SERVICE ANIMALS

Federal law, under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), mandates that businesses and organizations that serve the public must allow people with disabilities to bring their service animals into all areas of the facility where customers are normally allowed to go. This federal law applies to all businesses open to the public.

Service animals are animals that are individually trained to perform tasks for people with disabilities such as guiding people who blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling wheelchairs, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, or performing other special tasks. Service animals are working animals, not pets.

For more information on the laws governing service animals, click here


MOSQUITO CONTROL

Florham Park has a number of wetland areas that provide an environment that is perfect for mosquito breeding. From late Spring to early Fall, mosquitoes can be a significant nuisance especially in residential areas close to these wetlands. Residents should consider staying indoors during periods of high mosquito activity (early evening and early morning).

The Morris County Mosquito Commission is the lead agency for mosquito control in Morris County. The Commission employs a variety of environmentally sound techniques to reduce the annoyances caused by this insect. If you have questions or would like information on planned mosquito spraying, call 973-285-6450.

TO REPORT A MOSQUITO BREEDING SITE CALL: 973-285-6450

Mosquito breeding around the home can be reduced considerably by eliminating standing water available for mosquito breeding.

Dispose of metal cans, plastic containers, ceramic pots or any other water holding containers that have accumulated on your property.

Clean roof gutters annually, particularly if leaves from surrounding trees have plugged the drains. Roof gutters are easily overlooked but can produce millions of mosquitoes each season.

Turn over plastic wading pools when not in use.

Turn over wheelbarrows and do not allow water to stagnate in bird baths.

Aerate ornamental pools or stock them with fish. Water gardens will become major mosquito producers if they are allowed to stagnate.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools that are not being used. A swimming pool that is left untended by a vacationing family for an extended period of time will result in an infestation. Mosquitoes can even breed in the water that collects on pool covers.

Use landscaping to eliminate standing water that collects on your property. Mosquitoes will develop in any puddle that lasts more than 4 days.

(Information obtained from Rutgers NJAES Cooperative Extension)


GUIDELINES FOR PROPER DISPOSAL OF HOUSEHOLD MEDICATION

Over the counter and prescription medications should not be disposed down the drain because wastewater treatment facilities are not designed to remove pharmaceutical compounds. These medications may end up in local waterways, and may eventually be found in drinking water. Properly disposing of unwanted and expired prescriptions and over-the-counter medications in the trash promotes a healthy aquatic environment and prevents accidental poisoning as well as intentional abuse.

The Florham Park Police Department can now accept unwanted, unused and expired prescription medications 24 hours, 7 days a week. The unit is located in the main lobby of Florham Park Borough Hall.

SAFE SYRINGE DISPOSAL GUIDE

For Home Generated Medical Waste

Home generated medical waste is created through the administration of injectable medications and other invasive or non-invasive procedures. It includes, but is not limited to, syringes, and needles with attached tubing and other materials. You are required by law to properly dispose of these syringes or reusable hypodermic needles by destroying your needles and syringes.

How can you safely dispose of your syringes? Several options are available to safely dispose of used syringes generated in the home.

Safe Syringe Disposal Program – Contact Morristown Memorial Hospital for information: 973-971-4177.

Physicians – Ask your physician if he/she will take your used syringes once they are properly placed in a container.

Household Waste – Follow these steps to safely dispose of your syringes in your municipal trash:

Your syringes must be place in rigid containers that will protect people from needle sticks. Use containers that are unlikely to break open on the way to the landfill.

  1. You can use empty laundry detergent bottles or 2-liter soda bottles or other rigid containers with screw-on caps to dispose of needles and syringes. Also, check with a pharmacy to see if they sell commercial containers specially designed to hold sharps for disposal in your household trash.
  2. Place a large label with a warning on the empty container. For example: Syringes – Do Not Recycle
  3. Buy an inexpensive hand-held needle clipper from the pharmacy. Using anything other than a clipper to break a needle is not safe. After clipping the needle, carefully place each of the used needles and syringes into a plastic bottle with a screw-on lid. If possible, the user should clip the needle and syringe and place them in the container. If the user is unable, it is recommended that the caregiver consult with the individual’s physician for further instructions.
  4. Seal the bottle tightly with the original lid and wrap duct tape over the lid after you fill the bottle with syringes.
  5. You may now dispose of the tightly sealed full container of syringes in your household trash – NOT in your recycling bin. Remember, although you may feel healthy, your used syringes can transmit germs and loose syringes can seriously hurt people.

Soccer Association, FP/EH Football Club, and FP Cheerleaders in a ceremony attended by 750+ people on September 5, 2014 for the Fall 2014 season.  The new Volunteer Park is designed to supplement, not replace, the existing fields throughout the Borough.

Fred Stobaeus & Lou Boyd Awards

Administered by the Recreation Committee, these two annual awards are named for Fred Stobaeus and Lou Boyd, whose volunteer efforts were instrumental in building the borough’s recreation programs. Each spring, the awards are given to Florham Park students who are outstanding in sportsmanship, leadership, athletic ability, and academic achievement, and who are positive role models in the community. Fred Stobaeus was known as “Mr. Recreation” and was chairman of the first Recreation Committee. In 1955, he founded the Little League baseball program in Florham Park. Lou Boyd was also an active promoter of recreation opportunities and was a long-time secretary of the Recreation Committee. In 1966, the Fred Stobaeus Award was established. The Lou Boyd Award followed in 1976. Click List of award winners for the list of previous winners.

Senior Citizens Corner

Welcome to the Senior Citizen’s Corner

 

 

Senior Citizens Club Spring Luncheon

 

Come visit the Florham Park Senior Center

The Senior Center was built to enrich the lives of all our Seniors, and those who can’t get out will especially benefit from this opportunity for a change of scenery. In addition you can meet with many other Seniors and get to know them. The Center is a warm, homey building which is open Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. & 4:30 p.m.

If you would like to visit the Center and do not have transportation, please call the Center at 973-520-8984, and we will try to arrange transportation for you. Please remember, you do not have to be a member of any organization or club to use the Center as long as you are a Florham Park resident over the age of 62. All are welcome.

The Center has a comfortable living room where you can watch TV, curl up with a good book, play a game, work a jigsaw puzzle, simply chat or enjoy a cat nap on the comfortable furniture.  There is also a game room where most afternoons Rummikub and various card games are being played. A flat panel TV, which can be used to play arcade games with the donated Nintendo Wii, is also available. The Center also has a Craft Room where visitors can knit, crochet, sew or do a craft of their choice. The center even has a WiFi Network so you can access the internet on your laptop, smart phone or iPad if you wish to. There is also a nice large kitchen with a refrigerator, stove and microwave. Seniors usually bring their own lunch, snacks and beverages, although the Center has coffee, tea and related supplies which are donated. We also have a nice large room, that can be divided in 2, for exercise classes, seminars, large meetings and movies. This room has easy access to the kitchen for serving its users, and a second flat panel TV for use in exercise classes, Wii bowling tournaments, etc. It also has a large pull down screen, sophisticated sound system, and a projector for movies and presentations. Outside trees have been planted and limited outdoor seating is available. So come down and check it out. You will not be disappointed!

Feral Cats

It is very tempting to feed feral cats because they are so cute and look just like domestic cats. These animals are NOT domesticated. They have been born in the wild and may carry diseases and in some cases, rabies. The feeding of feral cats and other types of wildlife also disrupts their natural feeding habits and can result in wildlife being concentrated at artificial feeding areas like your yard. It is against the law in Florham Park to feed feral cats and other wildlife. Violators are subject to prosecution and fines. Report feral cats to the Health Department.

Firearms

The hunting of game and the discharging of firearms within the Borough limits are prohibited. State Law requires the registration of firearms of any type. Applications are handled by the Police Department.

OPEN PUBLIC RECORDS (OPRA)

 

The Municipal Clerk of the Borough of Florham Park is the custodian of all records for the municipality. Please send all requests for public documents to Sheila Williams, Borough Clerk.  If you have questions regarding your request, or to determine the cost to process your request, contact Mrs. Williams via email at swilliams@fpboro.net . Via Regular mail or by Fax:

Sheila Williams, R.M.C.

111 Ridgedale Avenue, Florham Park, NJ 07932
973-410-5300
Fax: 973-377-5749

Click here for a Public Records Request Form

Frequently Asked Questions About OPRA:

What is OPRA? Open Public Records Act – N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et. seq. The Open Public Records Act (OPRA) is a State law to increase the public’s accessibility to view and copy government records maintained by public agencies in the State. Additionally it provides the public a procedure to register a complaint when a request for access to government records is denied. A “government record” is defined as a physical record that has been generated, maintained, or received by a public agency in the course of official business.

What public agencies are covered under OPRA? OPRA applies primarily to executive branch of State government, certain records of the State Legislature, state authorities, commissions, state colleges and universities, county governments, municipalities, fire districts, school boards, planning and zoning boards and other county and local boards, agencies and authorities. OPRA does not cover the judicial branch of government.

Are all government records accessible to the public? While most government records are accessible to public access, some are not. Information received by a State Senator or General Assembly member, from, or concerning, a constituent is not considered a government record. The same is true for communication prepared for State Senators or Assemblymen. Other records that are not disclosed to the public include: information that would threaten homeland security; personal information; interfere with competitive business practices. Information on other exceptions to disclosure can be obtained from the Government Records Council.

Why are some records not disclosed? While OPRA mandates that limitations on the public’s right of access should be decided in the public’s favor, a public agency is required to keep a citizen’s personal information from public access when disclosure would violate the citizen’s reasonable expectation of privacy. Subsequently, it may be necessary for the public agencies to redact certain personal information (i.e. social security, credit card, driver’s license or unlisted telephone numbers) from the record before releasing it to the public.

How do I obtain government records from public agencies? OPRA requires that all public agencies appoint a Records Custodian. It is the function of the Custodian to release government records to the public. People who want to obtain public records should contact the Custodian of the public agency that holds those records. In addition, OPRA requires that all public agencies adopt a Records Request Form. This form must be filled out and hand-delivered, mailed, or transmitted electronically, but cannot be transmitted verbally. Contact the agency that you are requesting document from for specific instruction on how to file the form.

Do I have to have a formal Records Request form for all government records that I request? Many public agencies will continue to use non-OPRA forms for routine records requests that are usually filled promptly. In the event this type of informal request results in a denial, the Records Custodian is obligated to provide a formal denial that includes information about OPRA appeal rights.

How long will it take the Custodian to respond to me? The Records Custodian must comply with the request “as soon as possible,” but no later than seven business days after the request is received. Requests for access to budgets, bills, vouchers, and contracts must be processed immediately. The seven-day “clock” starts the day after the request is received. If a record is in storage or archived, the Custodian will advise the requester within seven business days and tell the requester when the record will beavailable.

Are there fees involved? The public agency can only charge the public for the cost of copies of printed government records. The fee structure will not exceed $.05 for and 8 1/2 x 11 page or $.07 for 8 1/2 x 14 sheets.  If the requester asks for a record to be copied in a particular format, and the public agency is able to honor that request, the agency may charge an additional charge to cover the cost for any extensive use of information technology or for the labor cost of personnel providing the service. In such cases the custodian may require a deposit when you submit your request.

Can my request be legitimately denied? Yes, reasons for denial reside for the most part in OPRA’s exceptions. Additionally a request maybe denied if the requester fails to properly fill out the records request form or fails to provide proper identification.

What happens if my request is denied? If your request for a government record is denied, there are two avenues of redress. You may file a suit in Superior Court, or you may apply to the Government Records Council for intervention.

What is the Government Records Council? The Government Records Council (GRC), is part of the State’s Department of Community Affairs, is charged with providing assistance to the public and records custodians, and with hearing complaints about denial of access to records. The GRC is composed of the Commissioners of Community Affairs and Education (or their designees); and three members of the public. An Executive Director, assisted by professional and clerical staff administer the work of the GRC. For further information on the GRC, please visit their website at www.state.nj.us/grc/.

About FP

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.
