MORRISTOWN, NEW JERSEY - The Town of Morristown is pleased to announce the approval of the voluntary Morristown Municipal Identification Program for residents, effective on August 1, 2017. The Morristown I.D. is available for any resident over the age of 14 who can prove residency in the Town. The card shall display at minimum the resident’s full name, address, photograph, date of birth, signature, card issue date and expiration date. With photo identification included, these cards will help residents open bank accounts, access health care, use the town pool and access a variety of municipal services.
“After a unanimous approval vote of the Council, I am proud that Morristown is establishing this I.D. program for our residents,” says Morristown Mayor Timothy Dougherty. “We want to ensure that all residents will be able to fully engage with the Town and its resources."
The Town joins several other New Jersey municipalities who have implemented a similar I.D. program. Morristown residents ages 14 and older may apply for this I.D. at the Department of Vital Statistics starting on August 1, by calling 973-796-1918 and scheduling an appointment. Applicants will be required to follow a points system to establish identity and residency. All Town of Morristown departments will accept the Morristown Municipal I.D. as proof of identity and residence for access to Town services and benefits. The card does not confer driving privileges, welfare benefits, airplane travel, work authorization or citizenship.
