The City of Sea Isle City has been waiving water interest charges for non-payment on accounts since October of 2021 in accordance to the Governor of New Jersey’s E.O. 229. We are extending those practices and including unpaid sewer charges until April 20, 2022 again in accordance to State Senate Bill 4081. This grace period will give our Property Owners the time they need to begin making payments. Any payments made towards interest have been credited forward and will reflect on your upcoming bill.
