The State of New Jersey recently issued Executive Order # 157, which permits public playgrounds to reopen on July 2, 2020. After careful consideration of current state regulations and per the guidance of our risk manager, The Borough of Dumont has decided to open our playgrounds and borough fields for the use of our residents and families. We make this decision with the abundance of caution and ask all residents to use good judgment and adhere to all current CDC guidelines. The Borough of Dumont has instituted a regular cleaning schedule for playground equipment, and it is strongly recommended all residents properly clean any park equipment before and after use. Weather permitting, Dumont DPW will disinfect all playgrounds Sunday through Friday from 7 am – 9 am. There will be no scheduled cleaning on Saturdays. While borough parks and fields are now open, all public restrooms will remain closed until further notice. New Jersey is thankfully one of the few states with decreasing numbers during the COVID-19 public health crisis but we must remain vigilant and please remember the following:

  • Stay home if sick
  • Practice social distancing
  • Cover coughs and sneezes
  • Wash hands often
  • Avoid touching face
  • Wear cloth face-covering unless age or health concerns indicate otherwise
  • Recreational sports leagues are still canceled, and all high and medium risk sports included in Executive Order 149 are still prohibited

The Dumont Mayor and Council are committed to doing everything possible to help our businesses and implement the proper procedures as we safely reopen our community. When The State of New Jersey announced that restaurant and retail operations will be permitted to open with limited outdoor service, The Borough of Dumont took quick action establishing Resolution #123 allowing street closures for outdoor dining where appropriate and adopted a resolution implementing the provisions of Executive Order 150 regarding the temporary and conditional re-opening of establishments in Dumont.

Our restaurants and retail are a vital element in our community, and we recognize there is an intense need to commence operations. We have developed a process to safely help our business community on the road to recovery while ensuring compliance with all safety guidelines as directed by Executive Directive No. 20-014. To participate in outdoor dining, please submit or scan completed forms, schematics, required permits, and proof of insurance and email the Borough Administrator at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Governor Murphy recently signed Executive Order No. 130, which allows municipalities to extend the grace period for property tax payments due on May 1st to June 1st. The Dumont Governing Body strongly support any action that provides much-needed relief to taxpayers struggling financially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, including this measure. After a careful financial analysis, The Mayor and Council supported a resolution to extend the second quarter property tax grace period to June 1st 2020 to provide a modest measure of tax relief to residents that have been affected by this horrific public health crisis. Please be advised any payment made after June 1st accrues retroactive interest back to May 1st as per statutory guidelines.
