Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option
Background: After numerous complaints from residents about health concerns, driver safety, and animal welfare, Borough Council began to seek options for managing the Borough's growing deer population. Below is a list of resources including a deer population survey conducted in December 2019 and the recording from the June 30, 2020 virtual presentation by senior biologists from NJDEP's Fish & Wildlife.

Next Steps: On Tuesday, August 4th at 7:00 p.m., Borough Council will hold a virtual work session to discuss NJDEP's Division of Fish & Wildlife's recommendation to allow regulated hunting on the Borough's 14-acre Meadows property as a component of a regional approach to deer management.
