Hi, this is Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty with a Code Red Announcements.
The National Weather Service has upgraded Joaquin to a Category 3 Hurricane. But more immediately we are tracking a nor’easter bringing heavy winds and rain over the next several three days.
So we are cancelling Garbage collection for Friday and Saturday.
In addition, we need everyone to stop putting out brush or bulk trash. It will become airborne in the wind and clog our basins. Anyone putting out brush or trash will be subject to a $250 fine under boro ordinance 23:2.
All outdoor construction must cease for Friday and Saturday. If you are doing ANY outside construction all materials must be secured in containers or else be subject to fine.
We will keep you updated with further updates.
