Public Information Office

Hazlet Township’s public information office works to increase the public’s awareness of government operations, improve access to useful information and services and strengthen community connections. Since the first days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the office has posted daily updates on Monmouth County’s COVID-19 case count, state health alerts and the governor’s far-reaching executive orders. Resources for residents are shared regularly, such as where to find local food banks, financial assistance programs and mental health help. The office highlights Hazlet volunteerism and rallies support for the Hazlet business community.

The office updates daily the newly relaunched township website, sends out township mass communication alerts via the new system CivicReady, posts news and information about the township on its Facebook and Twitter pages and supports other various communication projects. The office also serves as a liaison for news media professionals, the nonprofit Hazlet Business Owners Association (HBOA) and the community-focused RAINE Foundation.  Projects in development include a "Welcome to Hazlet" package for new residents in partnership with the HBOA, development of a no-cost Intranet for municipal staff, a Hazlet historical collection and a media internship program for Hazlet students.
