Vanessa,

 

The Township of Old Bridge received an Open Public Records Act (OPRA)
request on 12/20/2022.  As such, the seven (7) business day deadline to
respond to your request is 12/29/2022.

 

The request was for:  tax liens: a list of all residential properties with
tax or municipal liens Jan 2019 to Nov 22 in csv or excel.  Code
violations: a list of residential properties with code violations that
include fire damage, overgrown grass, weeks, junk, boarded houses/windows,
vacant properties Jan 2019 to Nov 22 in csv or excel.

 

Please see attached documents responsive to your request.

Our tax office advises:  Attached is a list of all open municipal and
outside liens. Our system does not have the capability of formatting it in
excel or running the list for specific date ranges. This list includes any
open lien in our system, so some are from before 2019.

 

If your request for access to a government record has been denied or
unfilled within the seven (7) business days required by law, you have a
right to challenge the decision by the Township of Old Bridge to deny
access. At your option, you may either institute a proceeding in the
Superior Court of New Jersey or file a complaint with the Government
Records Council (GRC) by completing the Denial of Access Complaint Form. 
You may contact the GRC by toll-free telephone at 866-850-0511, by mail at
P.O. Box 819, Trenton, NJ, 08625, by e-mail at [1][email address], or
at their web site at [2]www.state.nj.us/grc. The GRC can also answer other
questions about the law.  All questions regarding complaints filed in
Superior Court should be directed to the Court Clerk in your County.
