The "OWN OCEAN" Property Tax Rewards Program
An innovative program called “Own Ocean” is being developed for participating residents who choose to shop with local participating merchants. The Township is currently working with local businesses to implement this program and it is anticipated that the “Own Ocean” program will be up and running this summer. All Township residents will receive an “Own Ocean” rewards card to use when shopping and dining with participating businesses here in town. Under the program, a percentage (between 5% and 15%) of purchases will appear as a credit on property owners’ tax bills or, in the case of tenants, returned to them via a rebate check from the Township.
Participating business owners will see an increase in business as residents patronize our merchants while taking advantage of savings.
