Hello Everyone,

I trust that you enjoyed the Holiday Season with your family and friends and that your New Year is off to a good start.  I wanted to take this opportunity to review some of the notable accomplishments from 2023 and highlight some of our goals and objectives for 2024.

One of the priorities for 2023 was the Recodification of our local ordinances and resolutions, simply put, it is the total reorganization of all the rules and regulations that govern our town. This project was massive in scope and took well over a year to accomplish.  We will introduce this ordinance in our January council meeting. Many kudos to the team, headed by Councilwoman Barbara Benz, who put in countless hours to accomplish this objective. The Borough, through the hiring of a summer intern position was able to streamline Borough records in accordance with the State of New Jersey’s records retention schedule. This past summer marked another successful and busy summer season for the Borough; while we did have several rescues there were no serious incidents, which is certainly very good news.

As we begin 2024 one of our top priorities is to continue to provide quality municipal services and maintain a fiscally responsible municipal budget. The Borough has awarded a contract for the improvement of Bay and Arnold Avenues and the tie in to the Downer Avenue Pump Station. This project is commencing as we speak and depending on the weather, we should hope to see progress over the next several months. We hope to authorize the process of going out to bid shortly for the installation of permanent speed humps on Barnegat Lane with the hopes of project completion before the start of our summer season. I have appointed members to serve on a Flood Mitigation task force to continue our vigilance toward the hopes of exploring all means necessary to ensure that the Borough of Mantoloking is up to the challenges that it faces from inclement weather, coastal erosion and climate change. We have begun the process of preparing for the summer season and plan to award a contract in February to North Island Management for Lifeguarding Services.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the Mayor of the Borough of Mantoloking and I look forward to working with everyone during the coming year.

Lance
