Borough joins regional group to seek lowest bids from dozens of energy suppliers;
PUBLIC MEETINGS SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY, OCTOBER 23RD AT 2:30PM AND MONDAY, OCTOBER 27TH AT 7:00PM. THE MEETINGS WILL BE HELD AT THE AMERICAN LEGION HALL, 119 Route 183, Stanhope.
Stanhope officials are working with a regional program to reduce electric bills for Borough residents. The Borough has joined a cooperative led by Passaic County to pursue Government Energy Aggregation (GEA), a state supported process. Passaic has operated a similar cost saving cooperative for municipal energy needs for four years.
Under the GEA program, the county will aggregate the energy needs of eligible residents of Stanhope and other participating towns, then seek bids on this pool from more than 30 state licensed energy suppliers. The suppliers bid their lowest rates in exchange for this potentially large volume of business.
There is no cost to the Borough or residents for these services, and Stanhope is not obligated to accept any bids. Residents may also opt out of the cost saving program at any time. Stanhope is joining about 12 other municipalities in the co-op, called the Passaic County Energy Cooperative Pricing System, to maximize savings to residents.

WHAT IS STORMWATER POLLUTION?
Water from rain and melting snow that flows over lawns, parking lots and streets is known as stormwater runoff. This water, which travels along gutters, into catch basins and through storm drain pipes and ditches, usually is not treated, but then flows or is discharged into local waterbodies. Along the way, the stormwater picks up trash (fast-food wrappers, cigarette butts, styrofoam cups, etc.) and toxins and other pollutants (gas, motor oil, antifreeze, fertilizers, pesticides and pet droppings). This polluted stormwater can kill fish and other wildlife, destroy wildlife habitat, contaminate drinking water sources and force the closing of beaches because of health threats to swimmers.
Human activity is largely responsible for the stormwater pollution. Everything that we put on the ground or into the storm drain can end up in our water. Each of us has a responsibility to make sure these contaminants stay out of our water. Whether we have clean water is up to you.
