Lived here for over 20 years and love it! It's close to the beach and there's plenty to do. It has a great school system, and the township is well run. Would still live in Stafford Township, if I could.

Beautiful place to live and raise a family. Have been here for over 38 years. Have seen many changes some good and some not so good, but that is life. Having the best beach just across the bridge is... wonderful . See More

Governor Christie declared a state of emergency for several NJ Counties, including Ocean. All state, county and Stafford Twp offices are closed for non-essentia...l personnel. Please keep the roadways clear so as to allow plows to do their jobs more effectively, not mention it’s downright treacherous out there! It’s a good day for hot cocoa, comfort food and some TV! #bingewatching #bombcyclone #wthisabombcycloneanyway #stateofemergency #babyitscoldoutside

Weather forecasters are predicting a storm with significant snow accumulation for our area. This forecast means that plowing and snow removal on the streets of the township is likely. Therefore, please remove all vehicles, trash cans and basketball hoops from the roadway to allow for proper plowing of the street from curb to curb.

PLEASE NOTE: Trash and recycling pickup will be suspended for Thursday, January 4th and will resume Friday and Saturday, January 5th and 6th.

Tha...nk you in advance for your cooperation.

Should you have any further questions you can reach Stafford Township at 609.597.1000.

The accumulating snow means that plowing and snow removal on the streets of the township is likely, Chapter 201-36 of the Stafford Township Code prohibits parking on all township streets when plowing is necessary. Therefore, please help us do our job and remove all vehicles from the street and park them in your driveway.

Remove any portable basketball hoops from the roadway to allow for proper plowing of the street curb to curb.

Thank you for your cooperation.

These activities can be costly and time consuming, and therefore may delay service delivery. Cash donations allow reputable organizations like the Puerto Rican Congress of New Jersey and its New Jersey for Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief, United for Puerto Rico, the Salvation Army and Red Cross to purchase product to quickly and efficiently meet the most urgent needs of disaster victims. When possible, the purchases are made near the disaster site to stimulate the local economy and ensure quicker delivery.
