Lakehurst Mayor's Update: Illegal Dumping Must Stop

Mayor Harry Robbins' column on borough happenings

Hello Lakehurst,

It has been brought to my attention that there are some handymen and women that live in town who like to bring their work home with them. Week after week we see a load of construction debris in front of the same homes. Although the borough is a full service town that will pick up almost anything at the curb, it does have to come from a resident in town. This illegal dumping costs the town money, which in return costs you the tax payer. This has to stop! We will be watching these homes. And action will be taken.

On March 12, with the help of Councilman Steven Oglesby, I held the first Business/Mayor meeting. I would like to thank those who took the time out of their busy day to attend. Heather and Danny from , Tim Patenaude from , Mark Taff from Lovely Laundry, Bryan Delendik from Tipperary Pub, Martin (Marty) Flemming from Lakehurst Hardware and Lakehurst Mower and Kathy and Jim from .

We talked about the possibility of a Cruise Night, and hopefully, the reincarnation of the Downtown Block Party. There was also talk of new signage coming into town. Our next meeting will be on April 9 at 6:00 p.m. in the borough's community center. 

Here are a couple of things that are available at the County Connection, in the Ocean County Mall. Every Monday in April, Workforce NJ Job Search will be held between the hours of 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Also the Veterans Workforce NJ will be there between 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday in April. Having a hard time finding a job? Stop by the County Connection. We can all use a little help once in a while.

A bus comes through Lakehurst. An Academy bus to be exact. NJ Transit runs a bus to NY Port Authority. This bus stops at two locations in Lakehurst. One at Union and Lilac and the other on Center just off Union. With the price of gas and tolls being what they are, I think $17.00 each way is A deal. You can check the schedule at www.academybus.com. Happy traveling.

God bless American, God bless Lakehurst and God bless our troops.

Thank you,

Lakehurst Mayor Harry Robbins

I am so relieved that our mayor has really hit the ground running and not putting up with some of these slobs in town. He has shown the ability to break free from the old way of doing things, listens to people, and with quality control starting to take shape, the "buisness as usual and, do as I say not as I do," ex-Mayor Timothy "Borat" Borsetti and Administrator Norbert Basil "hand in the cookie jar" MaClean Jr. regime is ancient history." The clouds have parted and the sun is now starting to shine on Lakehurst and its been a long time. I REALLY hope we can sink our claws into some of these NOT SO CLEAN AREAS OF TOWN and bring back the Lakehurst of old with pride. Great job so far Mayor Robbins and Lakehurst Council members!!!

I am not from Lakehurst but I have noticed the dumping walking through town, so good job Mr. Mayor. Also thanks for the info on the bus it would be nice to catch it nearby instead of paying to park in Toms River. Mr. Robbins how do you feel about MOM?

It would also be nice if they would do something to stop all of the dumping in the woods. I took a ride thru the trails and it is starting to look like a land fill in spots.
