Re: Reminder the Best Practices Worksheet is due October 17
As a reminder, the deadline for Best Practices Inventories is Friday, October 17 for Calendar Year and Transition Year municipalities. The Division will not accept Inventories submitted past the close of business October 17 unless an individual appeal is filed with the Director stating good cause as to why the Inventory was submitted late. Such appeals must be submitted to the attention of Jason Martucci via email at Jason.Martucci@dca.state.nj.us. The entire final aid payment is subject to being withheld unless the Director determines the late submission was for good cause. Please note, that the date of the public meeting where your municipality's Best Practices response is discussed may take place after the October 17 submission deadline.
If your municipality does not have a business administrator, the person running your municipality’s day-to-day operations must execute the Chief Administrative Officer certification. The date when the meeting will take place must be stated in the Municipal Clerk's certification located on the spreadsheet. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the filing of the Best Practices worksheet please contact the Division at 609-292-6110.
For additional information on the Best Practices Checklist please see our September 12 Dear Mayors letter available at www.njslom.org/letters/2014-0912-Checklist.html.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
