Mayor Tom Kelaher has announced an updated status for Ortley Beach. Kelaher said, "Gov. Chris Christie has approved the re-population for most of Ortley Beach beginning on Monday, February 4, 2013 at 8:00 am.
Only properties with all four utilities in service will be allowed to re-populate, as per the Governor's Executive Order. Homes must have working Electric, Sewer, Gas and Water before you can move back home."
Attached is a map showing the properties that are unable to receive some of the utilities. (Click here for map)
Kelaher added, "We have been in constant communication with the utility companies since the storm began and they are working as quickly as possible to get the rest of Ortley Beach open. As they succeed in their progression, we will update our website to keep residents posted."
