The Office of Finance is responsible for maintaining the public funds of Warren Township, through accounting for municipal assets and the disbursement of municipal funds. The department’s functions include payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, investing and budgetary administration.
Information about Escrow deposits, for projects requiring them is available from the Finance Office. These deposits are required for Development Projects that are applied to the various boards for approval. Soil movement, permit applications, construction plan reviews and Septic System installations are some examples that require an Escrow Deposit. These accounts are charged for the applicable Professional invoices that are billed to the account. The balance of the account, if any, is refunded at the conclusion of the project.
Please contact the Finance Office to discuss invoice payments, which are submitted to the Township and then approved by the Township Committee. The Bill List is scheduled for the Township Committee meeting once a month. Please call a week before the committee meeting to have the invoice placed on the Bill List. Delays are typically caused by the vendor not returning the signed Claimant Certification copy of the purchase order.
