In accordance with Executive Order 210 regarding shut down of Transportation Trust Fund road projects, the County of Camden Engineering Department requested a waiver of the shutdown of road construction on Clements Bridge Road due to unsafe road conditions that may jeopardize the health safety and welfare of the public, both motorists and pedestrians in Runnemede and Barrington.
This waiver has been approved and construction is tentatively expected to resume on Monday July 25.

2016 Homestead Rebate credits have been applied to 2nd quarter taxes for those who qualify. If you pay your taxes yourself, you will receive the adjusted bill in the mail next week. Please use that new bill to determine what is due on May 1st. If your taxes are paid by your mortgage company, your mortgage company will receive the adjusted bill and you will receive an “advice” copy in the mail for your records.
2015 Property Tax Reimbursement Forms will soon be mailed to seniors and disabled. In the past, we were able to fill out the portion of the form which verifies taxes paid immediately as you walked into the office. The Division of Taxation has changed the questions on the form so we will be unable to fill out the form immediately. Please bring your forms to the office, with the top portion filled out, and include your phone number and we will call you when it is completed so you can pick it up. You are also welcome to mail us the form or place it in the drop box in the parking lot, with the top portion filled out, and include a stamped, self-addressed envelope so that we can mail the completed form back to you.
Attached is a fact sheet provided by South Jersey Gas regarding the Smith Lane Bare Steel Replacement Project.
South Jersey Gas will begin to upgrade pipeline facilities along Smith Lane from Orchard Avenue to the Black Horse Pike in March 2016.
Work will also be performed on side streets, including Read Avenue, Orchard Avenue, Oakland Avenue, Manor Court, Payne Avenue, and Bowers Avenue.
Per SJ Gas, this project is expected to begin in March, 2016 (has started) and is anticipated to be completed by May 2016. Work on Payne Avenue will begin first, followed by Smith Lane and the associated side streets. The project will consist of installing 2” and 4” yellow plastic natural gas mains. (It may involve entrance into a residential property to relocate a meter to the exterior of the property.)
Work will take place Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. (conditions permitting) There is a possibility that work will be performed some Saturdays during the same timeframe.
