LBT10 Taxpayers Association
Water/Sewer Rate

In response to member concerns on our water and sewer rates, we have conducted a survey of members who also pay such rates off the island. Based on responses to the survey, here is the distribution of rates for off island water and sewer charges:

As can be seen, our LB TWP rates are higher than 75% of municipalities elsewhere in NJ and other states. More relevant is a comparison with the other towns on LBI which are summarized here:

As indicated each town has a mix of base and usage fees, and treatment of duplex units, but it appears we and Beach Haven are the highest for typical single units, and we are the highest for duplex units.

We propose to present this data to the township in an effort to understand why we’re an outlier and to see if these charges can be reduced or perhaps more equitably designed to shift more cost to usage based billing. We need volunteers to participate in that effort. Let me know at if you are willing and available to help with that.

JCTA Wind Farm Survey

May 8, 2023

Re: JCTA Wind Farm Survey

Dear Fellow LBT10 Taxpayers Association Members,

We hope this email finds you and your family doing well and looking forward to a great summer here in beautiful Long Beach Township and LBI.

As a member of the Joint Council of Taxpayers Associations of LBI (JCTA), we are happy to be able to share, with the LBT10 Members, the results from the JCTA Wind Farm Survey conducted in February 2023.  Being a member of the JCTA enables us to offer additional and important information directly to our Members.  Please note that this Survey is the property of the JCTA and may not be used in any way by any other organization or individual.

To review the results, there are three different formats to choose from: 1) a recorded presentation of the survey’s results; 2) a slide presentation; and 3) a printed Executive Summary.  Links to these formats are included below.

The Survey objectives were as follows: To better understand the attitudes of the participating taxpayer association members. This was NOT designed to be a public survey and should not be viewed as representing all of LBI. This survey is not to be used as a referendum.

The survey was conducted by 9 of the 11 taxpayer associations and was sent only by email to members of each association.  There was a total of 1,343 completed responses to the Survey, out of 1,545 total responses.

We think that you will find the Survey results to be very interesting and informative. If you have any questions, please contact me by email or submit your question on the Contact tab on our website  (

We would like to send our best wishes to all of you for a 2023 summer full of good health and enjoyment.

Respectfully submitted.

Bill Malone, President & Chairperson of the Board
