Open Public Records Act

The SMRSA prides itself on promptly responding to all reasonable requests for information. Very often these responses are dealt with in an informal manner which normally exceeds the response time as outlined by OPRA.

In addition the SMRSA complies with N.J.S.A. 47:1-A et seq., commonly referred to as the Open Public Records Act.

In order to request access to government records under the open Public Records Act, you must complete all the required sections, and date this request form and deliver by mail, fax or in person. Requests that are mailed or hand-delivered should be addressed to the South Monmouth Regional Sewerage Authority, 1235 18th Avenue, Belmar, New Jersey 07719, to the attention of the Custodian of Records, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. This request will not be considered filed until the Custodian of Record has received the completed request form. The seven-business day response time will not commence until the custodian reviews the request to determine if it is complete. You may be charged a 50% or other deposit when a request for copies exceeds $25.00.

Requests must be in writing. Verbal requests will not be honored.

Fee schedule for copies is as follows:

Letter size – $0.05 per page
