EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2020 - Shared Service with Howell

To all Residents and Business Owners in Farmingdale Borough:

Recently, the Farmingdale Borough Council and the Howell Township Council entered into a shared services agreement to utilize the Howell Fire Bureau staff to perform the required annual fire prevention inspections in the Borough of Farmingdale.  This agreement takes effect on January 1, 2020.

How does this affect the resident?  The only noticeable change to the resident will be the Howell Fire Bureau personnel in town.  If a resident decides to sell their home, a smoke alarm inspection certificate is required by State Law.  In the past, the local Fire Bureau would do this inspection.  With this change, the Howell Fire Bureau is now the responsible agency to perform this inspection.  Application for this inspection must be submitted in person at the Howell Fire Bureau office where the Staff will schedule an inspection date with you as you pay the required fees for the inspection. Application forms for this inspection are available on the Howell Township website under the forms section or copy and paste the below link.

Fees for the Smoke Alarm Inspection were set by Farmingdale Borough Ordinance and are all based on how many business days until your closing:

More than 10 days = $50.

Less than 10 more than 4 = $90.

Less than 4 days = $161.

For the commercial business:  Your inspection will take place annually at approximately the same time each year.  You will be required by ordinance to pay an inspection fee based on the square foot of your space used.  Your invoice will be mailed to you prior to your inspection.  All fees will be now be paid directly to the Howell Fire Bureau.  Our offices are open and available for questions and concerns Monday thru Friday 8:30 am until 4:30 pm.

Fees for businesses were set by Farmingdale Ordinance earlier this year and will be attached to your annual invoice.

If you have any questions, please contact the Howell Fire Bureau office at 732-938-4500 ext. 2900 or by email at

2018 Consumer Confidence Report - Water Quaity

It's been 200 days since Governor Murphy took office and promised to legalize recreational marijuana.  Because of the support of volunteers and grassroots advocates like you, we've been successful in pushing back on the Big Marijuana industry and blocking their agenda.
However, the battle is not over.  We are asking for your help to stop lawmakers from passing a short-sighted bill to 
legalize recreational marijuana in the Garden State this summer.  The marijuana industry is working with political bosses in New Jersey to pass legislation in August - when they think most New Jerseyans are on vacation and won't be paying attention.
We are asking for your help to contact your legislators TODAY to let them know you're opposed to this dangerous proposal. Click here to either call or send a letter to your legislator.
This is not a message about Govornor Murphy or any political party, its a message to show support that recreational marijuana has no place in our streets of Farmingdale. Tell them how we feel.
Don't believe that legalization of marijuana is the wrong direction for NJ, please feel free to take a look at the two web sites below. The Mayor and Council feel very strongly that this legislation would be detremental to our citizens, not only of Farmingdale but all across the country.
