Christie Administration Announces Significant Change To Housing Recovery Program-- Will Help Sandy-Impacted Homeowners Quickly Pay for Immediate Construction Costs PDF Print E-mail

 

Trenton, NJ – In an important development that will help thousands of New Jersey residents get back in their homes faster, the Christie Administration today announced a significant change to the Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, Elevation and Mitigation (RREM) Program. The move allows Sandy-impacted homeowners in the RREM Program who are using their own contractor to get grant funding quicker for initial construction costs. It eliminates the requirement that previously forced homeowners to provide proof of construction costs before submitting payment requests.

Updated Streetlights Enhance Area

 

TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The access road along the Ortley beachfront will be open shortly.  “Superstorm Sandy essentially wiped out most of the utility poles in the beachfront section of town and crews have wrapped up their work on the Municipal part of the boardwalk,” said Toms River Township Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher.

 

According to JCP&L, all of the new lights on the poles are fully operational. “This means that we can begin to take down the barricades that are blocking access on Ocean Terrace & Ocean Avenues.  Without the utility poles, it was so dark in that area of town that it was unsafe at night,” Kelaher added.

 

Instead of the regular “Cobra head” lights that you would typically see on light poles, Toms River officials have decided to upgrade and have a Colonial-style fixture installed.  Bob Chankalian, the Township Engineer stated, “The upgraded lights were done in an effort to make the area more aesthetically pleasing and to enhance the look of the beachfront area. In addition, JCP&L was able to install the electricity with fewer wires so it’s also visually pleasing to the eye.”

Whitesville location is now closed

 

TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Toms River Animal Shelter is still a few months away, but the interior of the facility is open and ready for pet adoptions.

 

The impressive two-million dollar facility, located at 235 Oak Avenue, next to the Police Station, shutters the antiquated facility on Whitesville Road. “The former location was close to Jackson Township and out of the way for a majority of our residents,” Mayor Tom Kelaher states. “This building not only modernizes the needs of an animal shelter, but it is centrally located for the residents of Toms River.”
