Mission Statement

The VTMUA is committed to providing efficient, reliable and cost-effective sewage disposal services to the residential and commercial users located within the portion of the township known as the Town Center.

History

The Vernon Township Municipal Utilities Authority (“VTMUA”) was created by Vernon Township in May of 2011 to provide sanitary sewer disposal service to its customers.

As an independent agency under the aegis of the mayor and council, it was created specifically to oversee the day-to-day operations of the township’s sewer system. In this capacity, it has authority and jurisdiction over the collection and disposal of sewerage and wastewater, maintenance, rate setting, billing, policy decisions and capital planning.

The authority is governed by a board consisting of five commissioners and up to two alternates, all of whom are appointed by the mayor. Terms of members and alternates are both five years, except that the terms for the inaugural set of appointed members will have staggered expiration dates ranging from service of one to five years.

The VTMUA’s administrative office is located in the Vernon Township Municipal Building, 21 Church Street, Vernon, New Jersey. It is open for business Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Regular meetings of the VTMUA are open to the public and are generally held the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Vernon Township Municipal Building. Special meetings are scheduled and held as required. Every meeting of the VTMUA will have a public comment portion at which time members of the public are welcome to speak. Those who wish to address the commissioners will be asked to limit their comments to five minutes to allow the authority sufficient time to complete its work.
