Hydrant flushing ongoing

Suez has begun testing fire hydrants in the community. Testing hydrants each year helps keep the system in firefighting shape and also helps ensure that the city gets high-quality water every day.

Residents are advised to check water before doing laundry. If water is cloudy run u.til clear.

Flushing will take place Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. beginning at W 63rd Street moving downtown towards W 1st Street.

For more information visit www.mysuezwater.com or call 201-215-2781 during normal business hours. After hours call SUEZ’s 24-hour emergency number at 201-273-4980.

Residents encouraged to participate in 2020 Census

It’s not too late to be counted in Census 2020. Mayor Davis advises residents who have not participated yet to do so ASAP. They have the option of responding via the Internet, phone, or paper form.

To respond online, visit www.2020census.gov.  To respond by phone, call 1-844-330-2020.

Paper forms may be dropped in the mail.

Census response determines federal funding, vital during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pay tickets online

Bayonne has advised residents that defendants may continue to make payments for parking and traffic matters through the municipal court’s online payment website at NJMCdirect.com.

They may also mail payments but are advised that court staff may have limited access to the court office to process them.

To contact the Bayonne Municipal Court office, call 201- 858-6918 or email@njcourts.gov.
