Mayor's Memo August 23, 2019
Hello everyone. In checking our website, I noticed that my last Mayors Memo was posted 2 years ago, July 31, 2017. It certainly isn’t because nothing new has happened in that time period. Indeed, there are quite a few new things, the new and expanded Beach is most notable, with its engineered dune 22 feet above the mean high water mark.
Other happenings are new sidewalks on the west side of Clayton Avenue from Johnson Street to the Mantoloking border and on both sides of Osborne Avenue where there were none before.
We have two new Council persons, Diane Cornell came on board in 2018 replacing Councilwoman D’Arcy Green (moved to Mantoloking) and this year Dr. Dennis Shaning. Both are quick “studies” and doing well.
Chief Robert Hoffman retired and his brother, Bill Hoffman took the reigns as Chief. The entire force that we have continues to do a “bang up” job.
Harry Roon has been hired as our Code Enforcement Official.
A new addition to staff is our Borough Administrator, Chris Parlow. Chris serves us on a part time basis but is here generally from 8:30 to 3:00 Monday through Thursday. He is a wealth of information and has helped us out significantly since his arrival.
I am sure there are many more things that have occurred in the last two years that you might like to hear about. Please call or, better yet, stop in and take a tour of Borough Hall while you get answers to any questions you my have.
I will not be writing these memos on a regular basis as you can see. Most important information is posted on our revised website. Take a look from time to time. It is current and gives information on activities to come.
Bay Head is bustling this year with many new businesses in town to go along with our new beach. Please don’t hesitate to call or stop in Borough Hall at 83 Bridge Avenue at the back of the parking lot.
Enjoy the last few days of summer. Be safe and God Bless you.
