The Board has received a concern about feeding “feral” cats.
Please be mindful that leaving out food unattended or food left out overnight may have undesirable consequences. Food intended for your feline friends may also attract pests, predators and other unwanted animals to your home and immediate area.
As you are most likely aware cats are domesticated and it is important to recognize that cats left outdoors are at an increase risk of disease, parasites, animal cruelty and in general have a shorter lifespan. Additionally it has been shown that cats free to roam have an impact on area wildlife competing for resources…. Unfortunately our domesticated friends often hunt out of instinct, not survival.
Thank you for your attention.
Note: One or more traps have been placed around one residence to remove the presence of a skunk. Cats may be inadvertently trapped.

As you may or may not be aware Sussex County will be evaluating the county’s more than 180,000 commercial and residential properties and will have their assessed value recalculated based on current industry-accepted methodologies to produce new assessments that will reflect their true value.
The reassessment process is scheduled to begin the first week of October and will be carried out by Tyler Technologies, the county contractor, by going door to door reviewing properties and taking measurements of both structural and land.
Tyler Technologies assessors will be identifiable by wearing yellow vents and caring a photo ID. If questioned, they should provided you with their photo ID and a contact number for verification.
