Hurricane Sandy Postpones Halloween, Property Taxes; Borough Hall Remains Closed

Massive power outages, downed trees, debris and wires cause Borough officials to postpone Halloween and property tax due date. Property tax date Tuesday Nov. 13.

Borough officials announced that all Halloween activities have been postponed until Saturday, Nov. 3.

"Because most of the town remains without power, and there are still a significant amount of trees, debris and wires down, New Milford is postponing Halloween until Saturday, Nov. 3," Police Chief Frank Papapietro said.

Dumont, Oradell, Bergenfield and many of the surrounding towns in Bergen County are postponing Halloween until Saturday.

Papapietro reminds residents that the curfew he issued for Oct. 30 and Oct. 31 remains in effect.

  • After 8 pm anyone on the street under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at least 21-years old.
  • Those under 18 not accompanied by an adult over 21-years old will be transported to Police Headquarters where a responsible adult over 21-years old will be notified to take custody.

Because Borough Hall is without power and remains closed, Mayor Ann Subrizi has postponed the due date for all property tax payments until Tuesday, Nov. 13. All payments received by end of business day Tuesday, Nov. 13 will not be considered late. (Borough Hall is closed Monday, Nov. 12 in observance of Veteran's Day.)
