For Immediate Release – July 28, 2022 - Morristown, NJ – Morris County Surrogate Heather Darling proudly presented the Morris County Surrogate’s 2021 Annual Report to the Morris County Commissioners at yesterday’s work session. The 2021 Annual report is the second of its kind ever for the Surrogate’s Office. “The year 2021, like 2020, was extraordinary with significant challenges; however, our team was able to accomplish our goals and exceed expectations as we introduced new services using technology to provide the people we serve with easy and convenient access to better serve their needs,” said Surrogate Darling.

This annual report highlights key accomplishments for the past year including new initiatives and financial results which defray County taxes.

Some highlights include the introduction of “The Personal Record” booklet for Morris County citizens, designed to help organize and record important personal information that may serve as a roadmap for family members in the event of an emergency, the service of taking credit cards as a form of payment and the ability to make an appointment on the Surrogate’s website.
