By Mayor Ron Dancer
April 13, 2000

DEPUTY MAYOR JOE PRZYWARA HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT PLUMSTED TOWNSHIP'S GRANT APPLICATION TO CONSTRUCT A NEW REST ROOM FACILITY AT OUR RECREATION PARK, NEXT TO THE OUTDOOR PAVILION, WAS PRELIMINARILY APPROVED AND AWAITS FINAL APPROVAL BY THE COUNTY FREEHOLDERS. THE TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE EXPECTS TO BE AWARDED $40,000 FOR THIS COMMUNITY BLOCK GRANT PROJECT.

THE TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE AUTHORIZED A RE-RE-ADVERTISEMENTADVERTISEMENT FOR THE RECEIPT OF BIDS TO CONSTRUCT NEW REST ROOM FACILITIES AT THE NEW EGYPT FIREHOUSE. DEPUTY MAYOR PRZYWARA OBTAINED ADDITIONAL FUNDING FROM AN UNUSED PORTION OF ANOTHER GRANT AWARD WHICH WILL HELP OUR FIRE COMPANY CONSTRUCT THE LARGER FACILITIES DESIRED AND NEEDED.

TOWNSHIP COMMITTEEWOMAN BONNIE QUESNEL, OUR LIAISON TO PUBLIC EVENTS, RECEIVED NOTIFICATION FROM THE OCEAN COUNTY TOURISM ADVISORY COUNCIL THAT PLUMSTED TOWNSHIP HAS BEEN AWARDED A TOURISM GRANT TO PROMOTE VARIOUS PUBLIC EVENTS. COMMITTEEWOMAN QUESNEL IS CREDITED WITH INSTITUTING AND COORDINATING THE MEMORIAL DAY PARADE; INDEPENDENCE DAY FIREWORKS, THE COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING; AND THE NEW EGYPT DAY CELEBRATION.

THE TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE'S OFFER OF $l5,000 FROM OUR DEDICATED TRUST FUND, IN RETURN FOR $260,000 FROM THE OCEAN COUNTY FREEHOLDERS, HAS BEEN APPROVED TO PURCHASE AN ADDITIONAL 60 ACRES OF LAND OFF SANDERS LANE, WHICH WILL BE PRESERVED FOREVER FROM RESIDENTIAL HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS.

DURING THE PAST DECADE, TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE MEMBERS KEN FRANCIS, BONNIE QUESNEL, MIKE ROBERTS AND DEPUTY MAYOR JOE PRZYWARA HAVE BEEN ABLE TO INCREASE OUR BUDGET SPENDING BY $2 MILLION WITH GRANT REVENUES FROM THE STATE, COUNTY AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENTS, RATHER THAN FROM LOCAL TAXPAYERS, AND THEREBY MAINTAIN A STABLE TAX RATE.

THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH (MAY 3rd ), I AM AT THE NEW LIBRARY FROM 7 TO 9 P.M. TO MEET RESIDENTS AND LISTEN TO CONCERNS.

THE NEXT MEETING OF THE TOWNSHIP COMMITTEE IS MAY 8th..
