The Hardyston Township Municipal Utilities Authority (“HTMUA”) was created by Ordinance adopted by the Mayor and Committee of Hardyston Township in 1985. One of the founding purposes of the HTMUA was to secure sewer allocation from the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority (“SCMUA”) for development projects located within Hardyston Township. The HTMUA was organized pursuant to the provisions of the “Municipal and County Utilities Authorities Law,” N.J.S. 40:14B-1 et seq.
The HTMUA is responsible for providing a potable water supply and public sewage collection for its customers. Treatment and final disposal of wastewater collected by the HTMUA is the responsibility of the SCMUA.
While the HTMUA has broad statutory powers to provide water and sewer services pursuant to New Jersey’s Municipal Utilities Authority Law, N.J.S.A. 40:14B-1 et seq., it also has certain obligations, as well. Its responsibilities include a service contract with the Sussex County Municipal Utilities Authority (“SCMUA”), federal and state laws governing pollution control, drinking water quality and quantity, bio-solids management, contractual undertakings and other applicable State and Municipal laws and ordinances.
The HTMUA consists of five members, called Commissioners, and up to two alternates, each serving a five (5) year staggered term. Commissioners of the HTMUA are responsible for setting policy, approving goals and objectives, overseeing HTMUA affairs and directing the activity of the staff. The HTMUA employs an administrative and operations staff and the services of consultants representing the accounting, engineering and legal professions.
The HTMUA’s administrative office is located in the Hardyston Township Municipal Building, 149 Wheatsworth Road, Hardyston, New Jersey 07419. It is open for business Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Regular meetings of the HTMUA are open to the public and are held the first Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the HTMUA offices. Special meetings are scheduled and held as required. All meetings are held in accordance with the provisions of the Open Public Meetings Act, N.J.S. 10:4-6 et seq.
The fiscal year of the HTMUA is September 1 to August 31. The annual reorganization meeting of the HTMUA is held in February, pursuant to N.J.S. 40:14B-18.
