The next New Jersey Founder and Funders Event in on December 9
By Monmouth County Freeholder Tom Arnone
Recently a Mayor’s Luncheon was held in Belmar for the purpose of giving Belmar businesses a forum to meet and discuss tourism and how it benefits businesses at the Jersey Shore. I was happy to attend and join Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty in greeting the local business owners and to share with them what the County Tourism Division does to promote the industry. The luncheon was held at Ollie Klein’s Waterside Café located on River Road in Belmar.
Additionally, we are currently working toward entering into a shared services agreement with Hightstown to utilize the Monmouth County Vehicle Wash facilities. This is yet another approach to help reduce costs and redundancies in the delivery of public services, while adding some additional revenue for the county to help offset our operational costs. Because Hightstown already has a shared services agreement with Roosevelt Borough for trash collection which is hauled to the Monmouth County Reclamation Center, it makes good sense for them to utilize the county vehicle wash facilities as a value added shared services while they are in the area. Howell Township has just been added to our MODIV property tax assessment shared services system. This system has been recognized for innovation and excellence in public service by the Harvard Kennedy School and Moody’s Investor’s Service for its role in streamlining the delivery and implementation of the tax assessment process. Certain municipalities have seen savings of up to 65% through this shared service.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Freeholders, Tom Arnone | Tags: Belmar, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty, Economic Development, Freeholder Tom Arnone, Hightstown, Made in Monmouth, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders, Monmouth County Government, Roosevelt, The Arnone Report, Tom Arnone | Comments Off on The Arnone Report
