- Cherry Hill Township Tax Grace Period to be Extended to June 1: On April 30, Township Council passed a Resolution to extend the grace period for payment of the May 1 quarterly property taxes to June 1. The move comes after Governor Murphy issued an executive order granting municipalities the authority to extend the grace period, which by state statute, is normally set at ten days. The executive order does not change the due date of May 1, but instead extends the grace period for payment to June 1. This allows property owners to make payments to the Tax Collector on or before June 1 without accruing interest or penalties. Payments received after June 1 will accrue interest from the statutory due date of May 1. The Township is encouraging residents that are able to make their payments by May 1 to please do so, as these quarterly payments are utilized to keep vital services in the Township running – including Police, Fire, trash and public works, as well as fund our teachers and schools.
- Gov. Murphy’s Executive Order 147, reopening tennis courts, will go into effect Friday, May 22. In accordance with Gov. Murphy’s Executive Order No. 147, Cherry Hill Township has announced the reopening of Township tennis and pickleball courts throughout town, starting Friday, May 22. Restrictions included in the Gov’s order will be imposed, and include limiting capacity at any one facility to 10 people at one time, and strictly adhering to proper social distancing at all times. This includes staying six feet apart whenever practicable, excluding immediate family members, caretakers, household members, or romantic partners, and wearing proper face coverings where social distancing is not practicable when entering or exiting these facilities. In locations with multiple courts in one area, nets will be removed on certain courts to facilitate proper social distancing and discourage large groups from gathering. In addition, the gates to enter and exit the courts will be tied in a way that allows for touchless entry. The Township requests the cooperation of all residents and visitors in complying with these mandates so as to limit the spread of COVID-19 and allow these facilities to remain open.
