A local township law, ordinance 0.998-97, exempts Edison Senior Citizens age 65 years of age and older from most Township Fees.
Under this program, Edison Residents 65 years of age and older, who are on record as the home owner, will be exempted from paying Township Fees for dog and cat licenses, copies of birth and death certificates, construction permits, boat basin permits, recreation programs and all health clinics administered by the Township.
In addition to Township Fees, there is also a program that will freeze sewer rates. Please contact the Edison Sewer Department at 732-248-7323 for more information. Senior residents within the Township’s water district (Edison Water Company/American Water)
are encouraged to contact the water company and request information regarding discounts available to them.
As a valued member of our community we hope that you will take advantage of the opportunity to benefit from these programs.
In order to ensure that only Edison residents receive these discounts, the Township is issuing Senior Citizen Identification Cards. Seniors may apply for an Edison Senior ID Card, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Edison Senior Citizen Center. Proof of residency will be required. Please bring your drivers license or a copy of a tax or utility bill addressed to you at your home address. After completing a short application your photo will be taken. The card will then be processed and mailed directly to your home.
Homebound seniors who are interested in obtaining an Edison Senior ID card may call Edison Senior Outreach Service, Inc. at 732-248-7344 and a home visit will be arranged to obtain the necessary registration information.
Please call the Edison Senior Citizen Center at 732-248-7345 if you have any questions or concerns regarding the Edison Senior ID card.
