Hanover Fire Districts Vote Next Week


HANOVER — Hanover Township voters will vote in person for their respective fire district elections on Tuesday, April 20 following a two-month delay.

Those who wish to vote by mail and have not already signed up may go to the Morris County Clerk’s Office at 10 Court Street, Morristown until 3:00 p.m. the day before the election to request a mail-in ballot. Those who have filed a mail-in ballot in recent elections are already signed up to receive mail-in ballots and require no further action on their part.

Voters will go to the polls for Cedar Knolls Fire District No. 3 from 2:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20 at the Cedar Knolls Firehouse on Ridgedale Avenue to vote on a $2,110,124 budget, a slight tax increase over the previous budget.

The budget’s tax levy would be $1,377,597, creating a tax increase of half a penny per $100 of assessed property.

Cedar Knolls residents would see a tax rate of 9.4 cents per $100 assessed valuation or $94 on a property valued at $100,000. Last year’s rate was 8.9 cents per $100 valuation or $89 on a $100,000 property.

Commission Chairman Robert O’Hare said the average property valued at $450,000 would see a $23 increase in their taxes this year.

No one filed for fire commissioner this year, meaning all three open seats will need write-in ballots to seat a commissioner.

Whippany voters will vote on a $1,905,573 2021 budget that will see a tax rate of 7.94 cents per $100 assessed valuation or $79.40 on a $1 million property. Last year’s tax rate was 7.5 cents per $100 of assessed valuation or $75.00 on a $100,000 property.

Voting will take place from 2:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the new firehouse on Troy Hills Road.
