Toms River will begin a Township wide revaluation process in September of this year. The process will carry well into 2021. The result will be a new assessment of your property and home for tax purposes. While assessments will generally go up, if the rise is Township wide, then the tax rate will come down and you may not pay more.
An outside consulting company will inspect every house and property to update the value assessments based on current market values. In order to complete this process they will inspect outside and inside your home. Our understanding is that they will make three attempts to gain access for the interior inspection.

We sincerely hope that both parties come to the mediation ready to meet somewhere in the middle
Below are a couple of good recent articles about Ortley Beach and our area.
The beach and dune replenishment project appears to be complete in Ortley Beach!. Hurrah! It looks awesome. If you are not local, come and have a look at this wonderful finished project. In the spring Toms River will be adding beach mats up and over the dunes and on some portions of the beach itself to ease the looong walk to the water.
The dune and beach replenishment is completed in Ortley Beach and the US Army Corps is now in the process of planting the dune grass. See pictures below taken near Harding Ave beach. (Photos by Paul Jeffrey)
