Brick Council to Vote on $2M Storm Appropriation

Emergency appropriation up for vote Tuesday

Brick's township council will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesday in a special meeting to tackle issues related to Hurricane Sandy.

An agenda for the meeting indicates the council will consider a $2 million emergency appropriation which will be funded through special emergency notes as authorized under state law.

According to the resolution the council will consider, the appropriation is necessary "to meet certain expenses incurred or to be incurred as a result of the extraordinary damage to the streets, roads and other public property caused by Hurricane Sandy."

The council will also consider a separate resolution to formally establish a trust fund for charitable contributions to help storm victims.

The meeting, which will held at the township municipal complex, will include a general public comment portion.


Correction: An earlier version of this story indicated the council would meet meet Monday. The correct date of the meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 13.

waste of tax payer money to enrich politically conected people.

I too wondered where our mayor was after the storm. To hear he had to be pulled out of a Toms River meeting is appalling! I agree mayor, it is time to either resign from your TR job and focus on Brick or resign from being mayor and let someone that actually wants the job and is here to show leadership in times we need it.

I can't wait to see how high our taxes go up this year. How many homes and properties are affected by this storm and taken off the tax rolls. How many of the poor unfortunate victims of the storm will be unable to pay their property tax bills this year or next. The problems caused by this storm are just beginning. With cold weather coming, any homes not secured are going to be ruined. This is not a good time for Brick Township. This is not a good time for the victims of the storm.

The Mayor was nowhere to be found for almost two weeks. That is inexcusable.

This hasn't been a good time since Alphonse(Bellu) and Gaston(Acropolis) started giving one another no show tax payer jobs. They cannot defend this criminal activity. NO SHOW JOBS.
