Mayor Amato Opposes New Jersey Natural
Gas Rate Increase
Mayor Requests Council Adopt Resolution Opposing 24% Rate Increase
Mayor Amato is also renewing his effort to support an initiative that would put an Ocean County resident on the BPU when a vacancy arises. "Ocean County -- especially in my community, Berkeley Township -- has very unique characteristics," the mayor said. "I strongly believe that having a representative on the BPU would help with rate cases like this in the future, as they will understand our unique characteristics." Mayor Amato concluded.

Drinking Water Quality Reports
and Fact Sheets on Lead
Concerned with media reports about high amounts of lead that have been found in drinking water in Detroit, Michigan and in Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Amato has contacted each water purveyor in Berkeley Township to provide the Township with the latest testing information. The information received from the five water companies: Aqua New Jersey; New Jersey American Water Company; Suez (United) Water Company; Shore Water Company and Berkeley Township MUA, will be posted on the Township’s Web Site for easy reference by our residents. In addition to the drinking water quality reports, some water companies have also provided “Fact Sheets” with answers to the most frequently asked questions about lead. We hope this information will be helpful to our residents.
