3rd Quarter Tax Bills
Why am I getting an estimated 3rd Quarter tax bill?
Due to COVID-19, the State has recommended that all municipalities send out estimated 3rd Quarter tax bills because the State’s budgetary process will be delayed until late September.
Why is my estimated 3rd Quarter tax bill higher?
There is uncertainty with regard to State aid and the estimated 3rd Quarter bill allows us to collect any unforeseen increases over two quarters rather than one. If the increase is not needed, tax payers will see a reduction in the 4th Quarter bills. It is only an estimate and not a final bill.

Dear Galloway Residents,
We stand together. We stand together to support the right for peaceful, inclusive, powerful protests. We stand together as a community against racism, against police brutality, against violence and destruction. We stand together to support our medical personnel, our police, firefighters and EMTs, our essential workers. We stand together to support our local businesses, and we stand with all of the residents of Galloway Township. We will do everything we can to help our Township come through these difficult times and come out stronger on the other side.

Please know that we appreciate all that has been done.
Thank you and stay safe.

A Message from the Mayor & Council
April 27, 2020
Dear Galloway Residents:
Challenging. Unprecedented. Extraordinary. These are just a few of the words used to describe these times we are now in. We would like to take this moment to acknowledge and express our gratitude to some folks who are stepping up in our community:
All those working in the medical facilities from doctors and nurses to cleaning crews and food service workers
¨ Our first responders – what can we say – they are the best!
¨ Our Township employees, many working staggered shifts and hours to continue to provide services to our residents
¨ Our essential businesses and their workers for keeping us provided with the goods and services we need
¨ The neighbors, friends, and volunteers who are checking in on those who may need assistance – you are what makes Galloway strong!
¨ The teachers and the parent-teachers who are doing everything they can to keep their students on track
Here are some updates from Council:
The 2020 Budget was passed with a slight decrease in our Municipal tax rate
¨ A resolution was passed to allow for a prohibition of new transient rentals in hotels and motels in our Township with exceptions as provided by the State
¨ Our next Council meeting will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, April 28th at 6:30 pm. The meeting will be broadcast on Channel 97 and streamed live from our Township website. The public will be able to participate by phone and those instructions will be posted on the Township website, Facebook page and on Channel 97.
¨ REMINDER – be sure to complete your 2020 Census! This will impact aid, grants, representation and more for the next decade so be sure to be counted.
We thank our residents for following the social distancing guidelines. The more we stay apart from each other now – the sooner we can all be together safely.
Mayor Jim Gorman & Council
