Briefing on Environmental Issues

11/20/12

Our Administrator was briefed by the United States Coast Guard today on their efforts to address the environmental issues related to the hundreds of sunken and submerged boats that have been abandoned in Raritan Bay. An amazing effort that crosses many Federal jurisdictional lines to keep our waterways safe and clean.

** RELIEF SUPPLIES DIRECT FROM THE WEATHER CHANNEL STAFF AND THE PEOPLE OF ATLANTA **

** RELIEF SUPPLIES DIRECT FROM THE WEATHER CHANNEL STAFF AND THE PEOPLE OF ATLANTA **

My friend (and Monmouth County native) Jennifer Nittoso currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia where she is an on-air meteorologist with The Weather Channel (TWC). This morning, I received five boxes of supplies at my office in the Township of Hazlet Municipal Building that she collected in coordination with her friends and colleagues in Atlanta and TWC that are destined for the NMCC Beacon of Hope Distribution Center here in Hazlet and ultimately, the people who need it the most.

Thank you Atlanta and The Weather Channel!

Community Volunteers Leading the Relief Effort

11/12/12

The efforts of our community volunteers who are leading the relief effort here in the Bayshore have attracted well-earned attention. Cliff Moore, a member of the Hazlet Citizen's Leadership Council and president of the Northern Monmouth Chamber of Commerce will be featured on New Jersey 101.5 tonight at 5:30 PM and on WWOR-TV Channel 9 on the 10 PM news. Cliff, the CLC, the NMCC and the Hazlet Clergy Council in concert with Hazlet's RAINE Foundation, spearheaded the first relief efforts in the Bayshore and are now running what is arguably the largest relief center in Monmouth County at the NMCC Beacon of Hope Distribution Center.

*** JCP&L UPDATE ***

11/07/12

*** JCP&L UPDATE ***

Let's start by saying, "don't shoot the messenger."

Our township administrator just got off yet another phone call with our area manager from JCP&L. He ran through the list of streets, homes and even specific utility pole numbers that JCP&L has neglected.

JCP&L is reporting that due to the snowfall, which is actually accumulating in other parts of the state and county, is causing tree limbs to fall and take out power lines supplying critical infrastructure like hospitals and critical facilities such as police stations, etc. This has caused JCP&L to reallocate field crews to deal with these issues.

Sorry folks. We are aggravated, too.

Book sale scheduled at the Library for this Saturday, 11/10th, has been cancelled.
