Gov. Phil Murphy announced Friday that the public water, gas, and electric companies have agreed to extend the moratorium against service shutoffs.
“Utilities are also offering deferred payment agreements of anywhere from 12 to 24 months with no down payment required,” said Murphy.
And, residents who were greatly affected by Tropical Storm Isaias will also get some help. Any New Jerseyan who lost power for three days or more will be reimbursed for the cost of spoiled food and prescription medication.
