Belmar Holiday Lights
Added on: 11/29/2012 at 02:00 PM
Belmar has been through a tough time since Hurricane Sandy swept through. Although many residents are still cleaning up and putting their homes and lives back together, the holidays are fast approaching. One simple thing that we can all do to literally brighten our outlook and our town is to enjoy the colorful lights of Christmas and Hanukkah (also called the Festival of Lights). Therefore, the Boro of Belmar, with the help of the Belmar Arts Council, is announcing a town-wide contest for the best home light displays. Instead of trying to pick first, second, and third prize winners, we are going to award prizes to the top 20 decorated homes and the top 5 businesses in town. There is no need to register for this contest; just have your display completed and lit up by December 14th to qualify.
Members of the Belmar Arts Council will send a team of judges throughout the town to find the most creative, cheery, uplifting light displays. These volunteer judges will be going through every street in Belmar on the nights of December 14, 15, and 16. Each of the winners will receive a Belmar Beach Badge and Hurricane Hero t-shirt. And remember, the best displays don’t always have the most lights.

BELMAR PREPARES FOR HURRICANE SANDY
Added on: 10/25/2012 at 03:00 PM
Hurricane Sandy is forecasted to impact Belmar this weekend. The storm is anticipated to arrive by Sunday afternoon and the Borough of Belmar has already commenced storm preparations. We urge our residents not to take this lightly; the safety of our residents is our utmost priority.
A “code red” will be issued this evening, advising residents of storm preparation measures. Our Department of Public Works and Police Departments are working diligently to prepare the Borough for the storm. Efforts to mitigate flooding at both Silver Lake and Lake Como will commence Friday, October 26, 2012 at approximately 10:00am. This flood mitigation effort will require parts of Ocean Avenue to be closed and Belmar Police Department will be coordinating with County Officials to ensure that the road closures and traffic flows are properly executed.
The Borough recommends that residents have flashlights and batteries at the ready along with all prescription drugs filled. Have a first aid kit and know emergency routes. It is also a good idea to be sure that vehicles have a full tank of gas. Please secure your home and outdoor items such as porch furniture, garbage cans, flags, umbrellas and grills.
If you have a health condition that would be adversely impacted by the loss of power, please contact the Belmar Police Department at 681-1700 with your name and location so that we may assist you in the event of power loss.
Additional code reds will be issued as the storm develops and as further information is available.
Residents are encouraged to follow the storm on the news and check the Belmar website for continuous updates.
