OPRA - Open Public Records Act
On January 8, 2002, the New Jersey State Legislature passed P.L. 2001, c. 404, known as the Open Public Records Act (OPRA), which enacted changes in the law concerning public access to government records. This law expanded the public's right of access to government records and facilitated the way in which that access is provided by the custodian of those records.

- Archived Agendas and Minutes are available for many public meetings including Agriculture Development Board, Board of County Commissioners, Board of Taxation, Development Review, Open Space Committee, Planning Board, Solid Waste Advisory Council, Water Quality Management PAC.
- Deeds and Mortgages
