Weymouth Township

Weymouth Township located in the southwest section of Atlantic County in the New Jersey Pinelands or Pine Barrens and contains the towns of Belcoville and Dorothy. It covers an area of 12.12 square miles, is bordered by the Great Egg Harbor River, South River, and Tuckahoe River, and is largely rural. The area was settled in the late 1600's when Weymouth Township once comprised the area of what is now Atlantic County.

Our name origin is Weymouth, England - An ancient seaport and modern terminal for ferries from the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. It is located at the mouth of the Wey River on Weymouth Bay. Weymouth is a popular beach resort of Georgian and Victorian houses. In olden days it was a naval port and the site of an important castle. King George III had a summer house there. In 1694 the Quaker fathers in Gloucester County named our township Weymouth because it was their township on the sea. They had no idea just how big a township they had created. Some of the Quakers may have left England from the port of Weymouth making it their last glimpse of the motherland.

Letter from the Mayor

Friends and Neighbors,

Can you believe how fast these days are shooting by? The holidays are coming up fast and if you watch the news or go on the internet, you would swear that the world is coming unraveled. This time of year I try to nest and not to think globally.

I was honored to attend our Weymouth Township School’s Veterans Day program. Honor and patriotism are alive and well in the staff and students of Weymouth Township and the Township Committee salutes you.

Our “Weymouth Township Rocks” float won first prize in this year’s Mays Landing Halloween parade. A big thank you to our township employees and the volunteers that helped to put this together and showcase our township in a positive light.

On Saturday, November 28 at 6PM Special Events invites you to our Municipal Building for our annual Christmas Tree lighting. We will have two choirs and a live Nativity along with hot chocolate and a visit from Santa.

At our Nov. 18 township committee meeting we had the first reading of an ordinance that will combine the planning and zoning boards into one land use board. This will streamline the process for our citizens and save some money in the process.

The committee also agreed to join with other South Jersey towns and the Cumberland County Freeholder Board in a lawsuit against Verizon. For several years we have been trying to get Verizon to maintain their existing copper cables and finish building FIOS in Weymouth and Estell Manor. Last year the BPU gave Verizon permission to abandon its deteriorating copper lines. It has now become even more of a public safety issue.

Would it be wrong to ask Santa for reliable dial tone and a dependable internet?

Happy Holidays!

Mayor Ken Haeser
