If you have not advised the court in advance, your matter may have to be rescheduled.

Your son or daughter, even if they are under 18, should contact the court themselves to enter a not guilty plea.  

You may be on the phone with them if you like or you may talk to a court staff member before (or after) your son or daughter contacts the court to enter a not guilty plea, to verify procedure, court dates, fines, etc.   And should you attend court with your son or daughter, you may appear before the Judge with your son or daughter when their case is called.

Mediation is a process that seeks to resolve disputes through the intervention of a trained mediator, without pursuing a matter through the courts to trial and conviction.   The mediator encourages discussions between the parties to help them reach an agreement. The types of complaints sent to mediation generally include citizen complaints involving disputes between individuals or groups.   These are commonly referred to as “neighborhood disputes.""   Not all complaints can be referred to mediation.  For example, motor vehicle matters cannot be resolved using the mediation process. 

An application for mediation can be completed during business hours directly with the court office or after hours through the Police Department. The Court Administrator or Deputy Court Administrator will review the application and schedule the case for mediation. In Evesham Municipal Court, mediation hearings are held the first Monday of every month beginning at 6:00 p.m.

If you are interested to learn more about the mediation process, please contact or visit Evesham Municipal Court to request a copy of “Mediation In The Municipal Courts”, an informational pamphlet prepared by the New Jersey Judiciary.

In certain types of cases, plea-bargaining is permitted in Municipal Courts.   You may try to work out an amendment or downgrade of your traffic or criminal offense with the Prosecutor on the day of Court.    Any involved persons, e.g., complainants, victims, witnesses, will also have an opportunity to meet with the Prosecutor prior to an amendment or downgrade being recommended.

If you and the Prosecutor reach an agreement with regard to an amended or downgraded offense, you may be required to sign a Prosecutor’s Slip, which outlines the recommendation.    You should be aware that unless and until the Court accepts the amendment or downgrade in court on the record, it is not official.

The Prosecutor, who represents the interests of the State of New Jersey, is available at every court session, including the mandatory first appearance sessions.   

Should you be unsure of how you wish to proceed with your case, you are permitted an opportunity to meet with the Prosecutor prior to entering a plea with the Judge in open court.   

Safe Corridor Zones have been established, by State Government, for various highways and roadways throughout the State of New Jersey.    Signs are posted on these designated highways and roadways to notify the public.   The fine may be doubled for a moving violation that occurs on a designated safe corridor zone. 

If you are not sure whether your violation falls within this category, check with the court staff before remitting your payment.  

In Evesham Township, Route 73 from Maple Shade to Berlin is considered “Safe Corridor Zone”. 

If you do not agree with the Court’s decision, you may file an appeal to the Burlington County Superior Court.   An appeal must be filed within twenty (20) days of the Municipal Judge’s decision.    A filing fee and a transcript deposit are required to be paid at the time of the filing of your appeal.   You may obtain all necessary appeal forms and appeal instructions from the Court office. The appeal does not involve a new trial.  Generally, no new testimony or new witnesses may be considered.  

The Superior Court reviews the transcript of the Municipal Court trial and the decision of the Municipal Court Judge, and may change the decision if there has been a mistake made regarding the facts or the law.   All fines and penalties imposed by the Municipal Court Judge at the time of the Municipal Court hearing are effective immediately unless a “stay” is requested at the conclusion of the hearing in Municipal Court.

If you intend to plead not guilty to the offense charged in the summons and you want to have a hearing, you must notify the Court of your intention at least seven (7) days before your “Notice To Appear” date listed on the front of your traffic summons.   If you fail to notify the Court in advance, it may be necessary for you to make more then one court appearance.  

You should be aware that where the summons could have been paid through the Violations Bureau, the Judge has the discretion to impose a higher fine after a hearing and in certain cases, he or she may impose additional penalties and/or sentences including a suspension of your driving privileges, if applicable.

A court appearance is mandatory in any traffic case involving an accident where there is personal injury.  In this event, any involved person and/or witness will receive a notice to appear at every court listing except the defendant’s mandatory first appearance.  This is done so that the Judge may hear from all involved parties before a ruling is made.  

If you are a witness or an involved person and you receive a notice to appear in court and you have any questions or scheduling conflicts, please notify the court staff immediately.  If you simply fail to appear at the hearing, the case may be rescheduled specifically for your appearance.  

This inconvenience can be avoided by communicating with the court staff.

If you face charges which carry penalties with a consequence of magnitude, e.g., fines of more then $750.00, jail time, license and/or registration suspension, probation, community service, etc., and you are unable to afford an attorney, you may apply for a public defender.  An application for a public defender must be completed.  The Judge will review your application and determine if you are eligible.   

If a public defender is appointed to represent you, the court may assess an application fee up to $200.00.   If the Judge appoints the public defender, the court will then provide you with instructions for contacting the public defender to prepare for your case.

Some criminal charges are considered “indictable” offenses and are transferred from the jurisdiction of Municipal Court to Superior Court for review and consideration for indictment.    This means that the offense(s) charged are outside the scope of charges that can be handled in Municipal Court.  Evesham Municipal Court requires all persons charged, even those with “indictable” offenses, to appear in court for the mandatory first appearance date so that they may be arraigned of those charges unless an attorney enters their appearance and waives the arraignment.    Arraignment means, the Judge advises of the charge(s), the possible consequences of the charge(s) and the procedure for the transfer process.   

For additional information on the status of your indictable charges, you may contact the Burlington County Courthouse at 609-265-5000 and ask for Criminal Case Management.    Have your complaint number available when you call.

Attorneys are permitted to solicit business in this fashion because certain court information is public record.  

Some attorneys may subscribe to a service through the State that provides them with a list of all individuals that may have a pending matter.   They may also contact individual municipalities to periodically review their open cases.   

Either way, you are under no obligation to respond to any correspondence that you receive, unless you are interested in seeking legal counsel. 

If you have a payable ticket that you failed to pay in a timely fashion, a warrant may have been issued for your arrest.  In this event, you may post bail at any local Police Station in the State of New Jersey.  When you present yourself to post bail, if you do not want to appear in court but want to post bail and have the original ticket and the subsequent contempt of court charge(s) paid in full, be sure to ask for a “Bail Waiver” form.   The agency accepting your bail money will provide you with a Bail Waiver form for your review and signature.  You should be given a copy of the signed form and a receipt for the bail money that you are posting.   As soon as Evesham Municipal Court receives your bail money and Bail Waiver, we will pay off your underlying ticket, the late fee and the contempt of court charge that was assessed.   You may also post bail directly at Evesham Municipal Court and/or Evesham Police Department.

If you are posting bail for a non-payable matter where your appearance is required in court, you should contact Evesham Municipal Court within 5 business days of posting the bail (provided you did not post bail directly in Evesham) to verify your new court date. If you post bail and do not provide the court with a current address, your case may be scheduled for court and the notice may be sent to an old address. This could result in your missing another hearing, the forfeiture of your bail money and a new warrant being issued. So it is very important that you review the Bail Recognizance before you sign it to make certain that all of your personal information is up to date.

If you received a ticket that you never paid and/or appeared in court for, you may have an outstanding warrant for your arrest and not even know it.   If a warrant is issued for your arrest for an unresolved traffic or criminal matter, or for unpaid fines for a traffic or criminal matter, the court can also suspend your driver’s license.   

If a warrant for your arrest remains active for more then thirty (30) days, MVC can administratively suspend your driver’s license. You should contact the court immediately to find out what you need to do to resolve your license suspension.

Should you receive a ticket and take no action, once your “Notice to Appear” date has passed, the court will forward a “Failure To Appear” notice that either assess a late fee and provides you a second payment due date, or the notice will give you another court date.   

If you fail to pay the ticket by the second due date, or you fail to appear in court on the date provided on the “Failure To Appear” notice, the court may issue a “Warrant Of Arrest” for contempt of court.  

In addition, the Motor Vehicle Commission (“MVC”) may take action to suspend your driving privileges in this state.

If you are required to appear in court for a mandatory ticket, local ordinance violation and/or criminal charge, you will appear on the date and at the time listed on your ticket, summons or complaint.   

During your first appearance, the Judge will review with you in open court the charge(s) pending against you, advise you of the possible consequences of the charge(s), advise you of your right to an attorney, and ask you how you wish to plead to the charge(s).  

If you plead guilty the Judge will enter a finding of guilty and assess court fines, costs and other applicable penalties.  

If you plead not guilty the Judge will postpone your case to permit you time to consult with an attorney and/or to prepare a defense of the charge(s) you face.

To expedite the process of having a street light maintained, residents are asked to contact the electric utility company who supplies power in that area. The electric utility companies are responsible for and maintain the street lights throughout most of the town. To determine the correct electric utility company that needs to be contacted, it is the same electric utility company that supplies power for the residential and commercial properties in the area of the light that is out. For example, if the light is out on your street, contact the utility company that supplies electric power to your home. Evesham has two suppliers, PSE&G and Atlantic City Electric.

Please use the links below to contact the correct utility company for maintenance on street lights. It will be helpful to have a nearby street address and the closest intersecting street available when reporting. It is also important to have the pole number when reporting. The pole number will be stated on a metal tag that is fastened to the pole.

In January of 2012, in an effort to improve efficiency and maximize resources, the Township restructured monthly bulk trash collection and moved to a quarterly bulk trash collection schedule. During the first week of January, April, July and October, the Public Works Department will send out 4 trucks through each neighborhood to pick up items that are too large to be removed as part of the automated trash collection process. Our goal with this change is to maximize the value of the labor hours and fuel usage.  The value occurs for the taxpayers when an item is being removed, not when we are spending resources driving to the next item to collect.  By moving to quarterly collections, the Township will eliminate a great deal of waste associated with traveling Township streets where no bulk items have been left for removal.  The resources we save will be reinvested to improve the quality of other Public Works core functions such as leaf collection, maintenance of roads, and drainage facilities.

To accommodate those residents who wish to dispose of bulk trash in addition to the quarterly collection period, the Township now offers a special request bulk collection service. Beginning on April 16 2012, the Department of Public Works will begin providing a special request or an as needed collection service of bulk trash for the residents of Evesham. Starting that date, residents who have a need for a bulk trash collection at a time outside of the regularly scheduled collection dates can contact the Public Works Department to take advantage of this service. This is a fee based service with a minimal service charge of $40.00 for each requested collection. To schedule collection, residents may simply contact Public Works during normal business hours at 856-983-2798 ext. 10. To expedite the scheduling process and provide residents with additional payment options online payment is also available. Once payment has been received by the Public Works Department, the collection will be scheduled to be completed within five (5) working days. For additional information about this new expanded program, please contact the Evesham Public Works Department at 856-983-2798 ext. 10.

There are many ways you can keep your streets and sidewalks safe and clear during snow removal by following these steps:

  • Once a street has been plowed, do not shovel or use a snow blower to place snow back on the street. This is a major safety hazard, and is prohibited by our Township Ordinance. When shoveling or removing snow from your driveway or walk, place the snow off onto the adjacent yard or plant strip. 
  • When it starts to snow, park your vehicle off the street. This protects the car from being splashed with slush and salt, and prevents the car from being plowed in. 
  • Check that your mailbox and post are in good repair and that they are behind the curb, not leaning out over the street. 
  • If there is a fire hydrant in front of your home, please try to clear the snow around the hydrant. It is there for your protection and that of your neighbors. 
  • Please remove portable basketball hoops from the street right of way. If they are left in an area where they can be damaged by our snow removal operations, we will not be responsible for any damage. 

 

Although crews do not place snow in front of driveways on purpose, there is no practical way for the snow plow operator to cut off the window of snow when crossing a driveway. This problem is especially acute in cul-de-sacs because of the confined space. Cul-de-sacs require that all of the snow that is on the roadway within that confined space be placed along the outside of the circle. The problem is compounded by the fact that each homeowner then must clear their driveway, which places large piles on the corners of the drives. 

 

One thing you can do to reduce the amount of snow that is plowed in front of your driveway is to place as much of the snow as possible to the right side of your drive, as you face the street. This reduces the chance of snow previously removed from the driveway being pushed back onto your drive. This suggestion, may not work in cul-de-sacs that have driveway openings placed close together. 

Residents of Evesham are provided with one green colored automated trash container per household, limited to pre-approved automated collection areas within the township. Residents who have automated trash collection may purchase up to (2) more carts if they feel an additional cart is necessary. The fee to purchase an addition cart is $75 each. After purchasing, residents may pick-up the cart at the Public Works facility or choose to have it scheduled for delivery. Public works is located at 501 Evesboro-Medford Rd. For additional information please call 856-983-2798 x10.

To purchase an additional container online click here

Checks made payable to "Township of Evesham" are also accepted. You can mail your check to our PW Facility at 501 Evesboro-Medford Road, and the container will be delivered to you. You may also stop by the PW Facility with your check during business hours (M-F 8am-3pm), and take the container home with you.

Bulk trash is defined as items too big to fit in the container which cannot be recycled. (Box spring, mattress, etc). 

For more information on Bulk Trash Collection and Removal, click here.

To obtain a blue recycling bucket, please call the Public Works Office at (856)983-2798 ext. 10. You will have to go to the Public Works Facility at 501 Evesboro-Medford Road (Mon-Fri, 8am-3pm) to obtain another recycling bucket. 

Note: Round blue buckets are only available in select areas.

Hazardous household waste such as paint cans, paint thinners, etc can be brought by residents to the Public Works facility (501 Evesboro-Medford Road) between 8am-1pm on the first Saturday of every month. 

For more information on how to schedule pick-up for appliances/metal, please visit our "Appliances/Metal Collection" page. 

Pressure treated lumber and other lumber treated with creosote are considered hazardous materials and are not collected curbside. For disposal, residents are offered the option to bring these items to the Public Works Facility during regular business hours. Please contact Public Works at (856)983-2798 if you need additional information.

Plowing operations generally begin when snow accumulations reaches two inches, or sooner if the roads are determined by the police department to be hazardous. 

The Township will collect Brush. Please visit our Brush Collection page to request and schedule pick-up. 

If you spot a hazard, please call the Evesham Public Works Department at (856)983-2798. If this occurs after 3:30 pm or on weekends, you should call the Evesham Police Department non-emergency number at (856)983-1111. Please do not leave messages at the municipal building. 

It will always be more effective to reach someone to respond directly to your complaint by using the above mentioned phone numbers. A message left with a department other than Public Works or the Police dispatch may create duplication of effort or go unanswered for a period depending on conditions. For example, if it snows on a Friday evening, the message may not be received until Monday, at which point the hazard may have already been resolved through either follow-up plowing or a police initiative. 

If you are having any work involving digging on your property, please call NJ One Call at 1-800-272-1000 three full business days ahead of scheduled work. There os no charge for this service. 

There are many miles of streets and many cul-de-sacs within the Township. Typically, the large snowplow trucks will concentrate on the major streets within each particular route. Once the main or primary streets have been plowed, the large truck will move to the secondary streets within each scheduled area. Public Works keeps route layouts logical and efficient to reduce travel times and to save fuel. 

Typically, courts with center islands take approximately 15-20 minutes to be cleared. Cul-de-sacs that do not have islands in the center are the most time consuming, usually taking approximately 30 minutes to plow. In the event of a heavy snow fall, a front end loader may assist in the snow removal process in the cul-de-sacs. Another factor that affects the plow's arrival in your specific area has to do with equipment failures or breakdowns. If a truck is out of service for any period of time, it adversely affects snow removal within your area. 

Public Works makes every effort to reduce the potential for breakdowns; however, breakdowns still occur. It should take each truck approximately six to eight hours to pass through their entire route once. If the snow is a heavy and sustained storm, the truck may have to make many passes in an effort to keep roads passable. 

Snow that accumulates across the side road at the street corner needs to be pushed back onto the corner. This is done to properly clear the street radius and allow cars to turn. The snowplow driver typically pushes snow back onto the corner in the direction the truck is traveling. This is why a particular corner may get more snow on it than another. It is not practical to require that the large snowplow truck attempt to maneuver around the intersection to equally distribute snow on opposite corners. This is difficult to accomplish and is also time-consuming during significant snowstorms. 

Snow piled at the street corner is of particular concern where there may be school bus stops. If there is an accumulation of snow at the corner of a bus stop, children may have to move up the street in order to board the school bus. Please instruct children not to climb on the piles that have accumulated at the corners. 

Every effort will be made to take unique street circumstances into account. However, it is extremely difficult and time consuiming to push at a reverse angle, particularly around turns, circles and cul-de-sacs. Trucks are not built to be articulated into an angle that would allow this type of plowing, and centrifugal force causes the snow to move off of the plow toward the outside of the turn. Public Work's goal in clearing all streets is to maintain as much of the normal pavement width as possible, while at the same time, allowing acceptable access to the mailboxes by the postal carriers. 

If the tree is located on Township property (the strip between the sidewalk and street) you may submit an online serivce request (PLEASE PUT LINK), or contact the Building and Grounds Department at (856)985-6037. 

If the tree is located on your property, it is the homeowner's responsibility to remove the nest.

You can ESTIMATE your taxes by multiplying your final sales price by the sales ratio.

Multiply this figure by the current years tax rate for an ESTIMATE of taxes. Example: You’re buying a newly constructed house in the year 2015 for $250,000. Homes are assessed at market value.  250,000 x .02669 = $6,672.50 estimated taxes.

You can get this information at the NJ Assessment Records Search.  You can search by Owner's name, property location or block and lot.

Reassessment is a program undertaken to appraise each property within the Township to reflect a full and fair value, which is the price the property would sell for in a fair and bona fide sale.

Changes in characteristics of the parcel or neighborhood; fluctuations in the economy; improvements completed without permits; changes in style; market pressure (supply and demand).

It is the price at which the property would sell in a fair and bona fide sale.

Inspection of exterior and interior of all structures. (The homeowner can deny the inspector access to the interior but then the inspector will be forced to estimate the inside value of your home); measuring all structures; photographing the outside of all structures; study of recent sales in your area; income producing capability, if a rental unit; all information is then collated for a Certified Tax Assessor to set the full and fair value.

Assessment notification postcards are mailed annually between January 10th and February 15th.

Assessment informal reviews are made between October 1st and November 30th if a property owner provides market information for consideration.  An inspection of the property is normally required.  Foreclosure and Short Sales are not considered arms-length transactions.

After assessment notification cards are mailed, the formal appeal process is the only course of review.

The tax rate is determined by dividing the levy (amount of money needed to be raised through property taxes to support county government, school districts, fire district and township) by the total assessed valuation of properties in the Township.

Tax assessments are based on the market value of your property. Direct Sales Comparison, Cost and Income Approaches are used to determine market value.

Assessment appeals must be filed with the Burlington County Tax Board, the Tax Assessor and the Township Clerk by April 1 of the Tax Year. Forms and instructions are available from the Burlington County Tax Board or the Tax Assessors’ Office.
