The Assessor determines the full and fair value of each parcel of property at such prices, in their judgment, it would sell for at a fair and bona fide sale by private contract on October 1 following their assessments (excerpt NJSA 54:4-23).
NJ State Law dictates that assessments be maintained at market value.
Masks are now optional within the Municipal Building. We strongly encourage the public to seek information first by calling or emailing the appropriate office or employee before coming to the building. You can find contact information and answers to many questions on www.cranfordnj.org.
There are various safe and convenient ways to reach employees to conduct business:
• Call or email. The Township website has contact information for each department; individual department pages have additional information.
• Use safe and secure Drop Boxes outside the rear entrances to the building for tax payments, applications and paperwork for Finance, Building, Zoning, Engineering and Tax Collector Departments.
