Water Meters The deadline for water meter installation in all residences (and activated) by December 31st, 2020. Due to COVID 19, homeowners are no longer able to pick up water meters. Instead, the Water Department must be contacted directly. For more information, visit the township website at longbeachtownship.com. There were several comments made complimenting the ease of completing this with the assistance from the Water Department.
Long Beach Island Health Department COVID-19 UpdateEveryone is encouraged to download the COVID Alert NJ App on their cell phone to help us slow the spread of COVID-19 and aid in contact tracing. The effectiveness of this app depends on the number of users, so we are trying our best to encourage all LBI residents to download this app, which will alert them if they have been exposed to someone who tested positive to COVID-19, and that person has the app.Once they have been alerted, the app will provide instructions on what they should do, which includes staying at home and monitoring their symptoms.
If anyone needs help downloading this app or has questions, please contact theHealth Department at 609-492-1212. For more information regarding COVID-19 and the COVID exposure alert app you can visit https://covid19.nj.gov/ or https://covid19.nj.gov/pages/app
In addition to the COVID Alert NJ app, there is one for New York and Pennsylvania. If you reside in, or are traveling to those states, please download that app as well.
“Best Practices” Checklist Governor Murphy issued the 2020 Best Practices Checklist to all New Jersey municipalities. It sets the standards for local governments to assess municipal financial operations. The 2020 checklist includes 60 questions pertaining to General and Financial Management, Annual Budget, Health Insurance, Personnel and Public Safety. Responses are due by November 3rd.
Municipal governments must respond to each question and need to meet an established percentage of the checklist items to receive their final State Aid payment. The Board of Commissioners has reviewed the 2020 Best Practices Checklist submitted by the Chief Financial Officer. Based upon Long Beach Township’s completed questionnaire, the Township shall receive its total final State Aid payment.
St. Francis Food Pantry In the very unusual year that they have experienced, financial needs have affected many residents of Long Beach Island and Southern Ocean County for the first time. Many local businesses have been very generous with donations in excess of $16,000 from contractors, realtors, Joint Council of Taxpayers and others.
Non-perishable donations can be dropped off at the Building Department or St. Francis Community Center.
In addition, checks are also accepted. You can mail cash donations directly to the St. Francis Community Center, 4700 Long Beach Boulevard, Brant Beach, NJ 08008, and mark your check “Food Pantry.”
If you would prefer, you can send your donation to BBHO and mark your donation “Food Pantry,” and we will deliver it to them.
Congratulations to Commissioners Joe Mancini, Joe Lattanzi and Ralph Bayard on their re-election, and to Dani Hagler as the new School Board member.
