COVID-19 Expansion Permits

Licensees that have on-premises retail consumption privileges may apply to The NJ Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control for a COVID-19 Expansion Permit to allow the licensee to temporarily expand its licensed premises to include adjacent and contiguous outdoor areas, and also non-contiguous outdoor areas that are within reasonable proximity of the licensed premises.

Application for, and issuance of, the COVID-19 Expansion Permit, will be through POSSE. The fee is $75.00. The duration of the Permit will run from its date of issuance through November 30, 2020. If the outdoor expansion area is public property (such as a sidewalk) the licensee must have the written approval of the Township.
