Toms River Twp. has hired a part-time Disaster Recovery Ombudsman to help residents navigate through their paperwork and permit process as they rebuild from Superstorm Sandy.

Trevor Newman has expertise in the National Flood Insurance Program and almost 40 years in the Insurance industry.

For now, he will be located at the following locations throughout the town, and will also meet residents at their homes/businesses as needed and as requested. Due to increased activity our Ombudsman has added Friday evening to the existing Tuesday schedule at the Ortley Beach Police Sub Station. It is anticipated that this increased availability will accommodate many of our weekend residents with recovery questions. The complete schedule is posted below and is subject to change based on need. (Please call or e-mail Trevor if you plan to visit, to avoid scheduling conflicts.)
