Committee Meeting – December 5, 2011
PUBLIC SAFETY BOND:
On tonight’s agenda is what I’ll call a “public safety bond ordinance”, for
introduction. This is the first bond that the Township has introduced in a
number of years, with exception of the safe routes to schools sidewalk bond
last year. Mr. Breeden will go over the details of this bond during his report,
but I feel that Barnegat Township is overdue in ensuring the safety of both
our first responders and residents and this bond will accomplish that.
BARNEGAT POLICE DEPARTMENT:
As I mentioned at the last meeting, our Police Department received full
national accreditation. The Township and the Police Department will have a
presentation at the next meeting.
GREEN THUMB DAY CARE AND NURSERY:
On this past Saturday, my wife and I attended a ribbon cutting for the new
Green Thumb Day Care and Nursery on Route 9. The all new facility offers a
multitude of services for working parents along with a greenhouse where they
are growing all kinds of plants. They will also be opening a new outdoor
garden décor and nursery next store.
