N.J. Admin. Code § 7:25-24.8 - Lease renewal

(a) Lessees may renew their leases by submitting the annual lease fee in person at the Nacote Creek Shellfish Office by December 31 for the following calendar year. If illness or other extenuating circumstances prevent a lessee from renewing a lease by December 31, the Council in its discretion may extend the payment deadline by one month if an extension is requested by the lessee or the lessee's agent at the January Council meeting. If a lessee does not either renew the lease by the payment deadline or receive an extension of the payment deadline from the Council, the lease shall be terminated for non-payment after the January Council meeting and the area described in the terminated lease shall revert to the public bottom.
(b) Renewal of the lease is subject to the lessee's meeting all statutory criteria for leasing, specified at 50:1-23 through 50:1-31.
(c) Renewal of the lease is subject to the lessee's maintaining a valid Commercial Shellfish License or Shellfish Certificate.
(d) Renewal of the lease is subject to the lessee's not having been convicted in the year prior to renewal of any violation of 50:4-3 or 58:24-3 or of any administrative rule promulgated pursuant to those statutory provisions.
(e) At the time of renewal, the lessee shall file a completed report indicating the number of days the lease was worked during the past lease term. The Bureau will provide reporting forms to all lessees by September 15 of each year.
