ability to avoid late fees as long as their payment is received by the Tax
Collector’s Office before the end of the
Township business day on Wednesday,
October 10, 2018.

families pay in neighboring towns. The newsletter insert in the current bill
provides a comparison chart for how Hamilton’s residential sewer rate compares
to costs for a family of four in other neighboring communities.)
