Property Tax Extension

Bergenfield Will Extend Property Tax Grace Period Until June 1 to Assist Homeowners During COVID-19 Pandemic 

BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- The Borough of Bergenfield will extend its property tax payment grace period until June 1 to assist homeowners who have been financially impacted by COVID-19. This measure, which will be formally adopted at Tuesday’s Council meeting, is being taken to provide financial relief to Bergenfield residents without putting a strain on essential emergency services and it coincides with an Executive Order signed by Governor Phil Murphy earlier this week. 
 
“As we continue to do our part to lessen the spread of COVID-19 in Bergenfield, it is equally important to be mindful of the devastating financial impacts presented by this global health crisis,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “We are providing homeowners with the opportunity to make delayed property tax payments to ensure all of our residents meet the needs of their families.” 
 
Bergenfield residents are encouraged to make any property tax payments online. Additional information about Bergenfield’s response to the pandemic and emergency information is updated on the Borough’s website daily. 
 
“The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many of us with challenges beyond what anyone had ever anticipated and the Mayor and Council will continue to identify ways to assist our residents,” said Councilwoman Ora Kornbluth, Chair of the Finance Committee. “These are truly unprecedented and difficult times, but with the support of one another, we will get through this together.”

Bergenfield Parks Update

Bergenfield Municipal Parks Will Remain Closed This Weekend To Allow Time to Evaluate COVID-19 Data

BERGENFIELD, N.J. -- Municipal parks in the Borough of Bergenfield will remain closed throughout the weekend to allow officials time to properly analyze data trends with the local COVID-19 outbreak. This measure is continuing to be enforced out of an abundance of caution and the decision will be re-evaluated in the coming week based on the most up to date testing numbers as well as other critical factors.

“The health and safety of Bergenfield residents remains our top priority as we continue to address the COVID-19 outbreak in our community,” said Mayor Arvin Amatorio. “Bergenfield has been one of the harder hit municipalities in New Jersey and any reopening plans need to be done responsibly. This is not a decision we make lightly, especially with the weather beginning to warm, but at this time we cannot risk erasing the progress we’ve already made.”

Residents are reminded if they leave their home for essential travel or outdoor recreation to follow social distancing guidelines. Cyclists, joggers and runners are encouraged to utilize the streets and neighborhoods with less pedestrian traffic.

“Health officials and the Mayor and Council will continue to monitor new testing and recovery numbers daily and we are hopeful that our municipal parks can reopen in the coming weeks,” said Council President and Parks and DPW Committee Chairman Rafael Marte. “The residents of Bergenfield have shown incredible resilience during this crisis and we look forward to responsibly reopening our facilities to provide safe places to enjoy the outdoors and get exercise.”
