Licenses will be on sale during the Rabies Clinic. They are also available in the office of the Township Clerk, 225 Main Street, Little Falls, during regular business hours 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. weekdays starting May 1, 2017. You may also apply for the license by filling out this form and sending it by mail to the Township Clerk.

The Clifton Health Department is a contractual health agency serving the Township of Little Falls.


Those with special needs who live and work in the Township of Little Falls encouraged to register with New Jersey Register Ready

The Township of Little Falls Office of Emergency Management is encouraging those with special needs who live and work in the Township of Little Falls to register with New Jersey Register Ready, the Special Needs Registry of New Jersey for Disasters.

The purpose of this database is to, in the event of a natural disaster or acts of terrorism, provide the Township of Little Falls Police Department, Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management with a list of residents who may need assistance with evacuation and/or relocation. Although this database will not guarantee assistance to you or your loved one during a disaster, it will allow the Police Department, Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management to more effectively prioritize the use of resources during an emergency. It will, further, provide the Police Department, Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management with an awareness of those with special needs who live and work in the Township to help better plan for adverse conditions that may develop in the future. Examples of special needs, for the purpose of this program, include, but are not limited to, those who may have difficulties associated with communication, transportation, maintaining independence, medical and supervision activities. Any other difficulty that may exist associated with an act of daily living, which will limit the ability to evacuate, relocate and/or care for oneself during a disaster, is an automatic grant into the program. While signing up with Register Ready is not a guarantee of individual assistance during an emergency, the information provided will increase the ability of local responders to best utilize available resources that will be stressed during this critical time.

The Township of Little Falls Office of Emergency Management encourages registration through the internet at http://www.registerreadv.ni.gov. Additionally, the non emergency number 2-1-1 is available to assist with registering. Registration in New Jersey’s Register Ready is voluntary, free to all with the data stored in a secure system not accessible to the public.

The program is free and provides a great way to bond with your child. Stop by the front desk to register and pick up a folder that contains a program overview, log, suggested booklist, and early literacy tips.
