Town Hall to be Closed from Thursday, Dec. 22 to Monday, Dec. 26, 2016

Date Posted: Friday, November 4th, 2016

Millville Town Hall will be closed from Thursday, December 22, 2016, to Monday, December 26, 2016. With construction underway for the Town’s new municipal building, the Town is going to combine electric for its new addition with the existing building, and going to transition from a single phase to three phase power which requires new pole transformers and switch gears. When it is all tied together, both buildings will have power. However, this process will take two (2) business days to complete, thus closing down Town Hall from Thursday, Dec. 22, to Friday, Dec. 23. Immediately following that, the Christmas holiday will be observed on Monday, Dec. 26. Town Hall will reopen on Tuesday, December 27, 2016. Should you need immediate assistance during this time, please contact Town Manager Debbie Botchie via email at DBotchie@mvtown.com. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

2016 Great Pumpkin Festival Cancelled

Date Posted: Friday, September 30th, 2016

After long discussions, the Town of Millville has decided to cancel this year’s Great Pumpkin Festival, which was set for Saturday, Oct. 1. The decision to cancel was not an easy one — especially after all of the behind-the-scenes preparatory work the Town has already done. But because the Town has to coordinate with many other businesses (the trash company, the port-a-potty company, the kids rides company, the music band, the transportation, the table and chair rental company, and the State Police) — as well as vendors — to get the Festival up and running, and, due to this time of year being a busy time for fall festivals in the area, those businesses and vendors cannot all commit to an additional rain date. Also, the Town must always make safety a priority; so when rain and possible thunderstorms are in the forecast, the Town must always put the safety […]

Millville’s Dog Leash Ordinance

Date Posted: Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Hello residents/visitors! With the nice weather here — and summer fast approaching — the Town understands this is a beach area, and most people like to let their dogs run or walk free, without a leash; however, to keep the public and other animals safe, the Town would like to inform (and remind) its residents and visitors that the Town and State have a leash law in effect (in effect in the Town per its Chapter 41 since May 24, 2016) prohibiting dogs (no matter how old or docile) to roam “at large” without a leash. Since the Town of Millville does not have a police department nor an animal control office, if you wish to report a dog “at large” (i.e., any dog that is unrestrained and (1) on property open to the public; or (2) on private property not owned by the owner of the dog, unless a property owner has given permission […]
