During this period, some customers may notice a slight taste and smell of chlorine in their water. This is normal and will only be temporary until the system maintenance is complete. Customers who wish to reduce the taste of chlorine can place water in an uncovered glass container in the refrigerator overnight to dissipate chlorine faster.

    Belmar, NJ 07719

     

     The Taylor Pavilion at 5th Avenue will house the same functions as the prior design with beachfront operations, general event space and one concession.  The Rowland Public Safety Pavilion at 10th Avenue will house lifeguard headquarters, police and first aid sub stations and one concession.

     

    Belmar bid the two buildings together and opened construction bids in December 2015.  In January 2016 Belmar Mayor & Council awarded a $5.45 Million dollar contract for both buildings to Epic Construction of Piscataway, NJ. 

     

    The pavilions were designed by Sonnenfeld Troccia of Holmdel, NJ and engineered by Maser Consulting of Red Bank, NJ.  Both buildings are constructed to V-Zone construction standards utilizing concrete filled steel piles and at an elevation of BFE +3 (approximately 5 feet above the existing boardwalk).  Both buildings are fully ADA accessible and will be built to current codes and standards.

     

    Belmar’s boardwalk was the first major infrastructure project to commence at the Jersey shore in response to Superstorm Sandy, reaching completion by Memorial Day 2013.

    JCP&L Storm Information http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=104 Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) is monitoring developing severe weather conditions and has completed storm restoration preparations should the significant snowfall that is forecast to hit New Jersey cause power outages. 

    “JCP&L has activated our storm restoration plan and at this point has mobilized approximately 100 additional line personnel to assist with outage restoration efforts, if needed,” said Tony Hurley, JCP&L vice president of Operations. “We are centralizing restoration efforts at our Red Bank headquarters where our company Incident Management Team personnel can efficiently monitor the impact of the storm and better coordinate available resources to make repairs.” 

    Winter’s cold temperatures, heavy snow and wind have the potential to cause damage to poles, wires and substations, requiring crews to make repairs in difficult conditions. In advance of the winter season, JCP&L completed maintenance work on equipment and did various inspections to help prepare its infrastructure for cold-weather operations. 

    The winter preparation work included inspecting heating equipment for substation components, such as capacitor banks, transformers, and oil- and gas-filled circuit breakers. Substation buildings that house remote-controlled relay equipment were winterized and the heating systems inspected. 

    Company bucket trucks and other vehicles also have been inspected to ensure safe operation during the winter season. Special emphasis is placed on the condition of tires and any air braking systems, which can freeze if moisture is present. In addition, snow removal equipment is on standby. Plows are used to help crews gain access to substations, and to clear the work areas and sidewalks at company service garages and other facilities. 

    Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the “Report Outage” link onwww.firstenergycorp.com. In the event of severe weather, customers should immediately report downed wires to their utility or their local police or fire department. Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity. Extra caution should be used in areas where downed lines are tangled in trees or other debris. Motorists are cautioned to treat intersections with inoperable traffic signals as four-way stops. FirstEnergy customers also can subscribe to email and text message alert notifications to receive billing reminders, weather alerts in advance of major storms, and updates on scheduled or extended power outages. Customers can also use two-way text messaging to report outages, request updates on restoration efforts, and make other inquiries about their electric accounts. 
    More information about these communications tools is available online atwww.firstenergycorp.com/connect.

    Generator Safety http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=105 Gasoline-powered electric generators, used to heat homes that lose power because of ice and wind, pose a potentially deadly hazard in the hours and days after a storm passes, by filling the house with carbon monoxide, says Eric Lavonas, associate director of the Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center in Denver.
    Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas. Thousands ofAmerican are treated for carbon monoxide poisoning each year and hundreds die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). "By far, the biggest killer after a blizzard is carbon monoxide poisoning," Lavonas says. "The biggest mistakes people make are using improvised heating sources and using electrical generators improperly."
    -- Never run generators inside the house, garage or carport.
    -- Never run a generator near an open window, and close all windows on the side of the house facing the generator.
    -- Outdoor generators should be located downwind and as far as possible from any occupied building.
    -- Have your heating system professionally inspected and serviced annually. Inspectors should also check chimneys and flues for blockages, corrosion, disconnections or loose connections.
    -- Install carbon monoxide alarms, preferably in every bedroom or at least on each level of the home. Make sure the alarm cannot be covered up by furniture or draperies.
    -- If the alarm sounds, go outside immediately and call 911, instead of trying to locate the source of the gas. Don't re-enter your home until the fire department says it's safe.
    -- During and after a snowstorm, make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove, and fireplace are clear of snow build-up.
    -- Never use gas or charcoal grills inside the home.
    After a storm, many people are tempted to move generators inside, to protect them from the elements or prevent theft. Experts say a safer strategy is to mount generators on a concrete base where they can be chained down.
    Several people were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning after the intense blizzard that hit New England this month.
    Two people in Boston, including a child, died after sitting in a running car whose tailpipe was blocked by snow. An 8-year-old Brooklyn boy died in a house fire set by a portable space heater.
    A cold house is usually safer than an improperly heated one, Lavonas says. "Being in a house or apartment with no power is much like being in a tent," Lavonas says. "It can be cold, but at least you are dry and protected from the wind. If you dress warmly and don't do anything unsafe, you'll probably be OK." Initial symptoms of mild or moderate carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu, but without a fever, according to Denver Health.
    The most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and confusion, according to the CDC. High levels of carbon monoxide exposure cause progressively more serious symptoms, such as loss of consciousness.

    2/13/14 Environmental Commission Meeting http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=82  postponed until 2/20/14 at 7:30pm ]]> JCP&L prepares for power outages http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=79

    FirstEnergy (NYSE: FE) utility personnel are prepared to respond to any outages caused by severe winter weather forecast across most of its utilities’ service territories later today and into Wednesday.

    The storm is expected to produce a wintry mix of ice and heavy snow, with current forecasts projecting the most severe conditions in central Pennsylvania and western Maryland.

    All of FirstEnergy’s 10 electric utilities have activated storm response plans, including staffing additional dispatchers and analysts at regional dispatch offices, and making arrangements to bring in additional line, substation and forestry personnel, as required, based on the severity of the weather. In addition, FirstEnergy is bringing in contractors to assist with its storm restoration efforts.

    “We are monitoring the weather conditions closely and are making plans to deploy resources to the areas that could get hit the hardest,” said Steven E. Strah, vice president, Distribution Support, FirstEnergy. “The ultimate goal of our pre-planning efforts is to 

     speed the restoration process and minimize any inconvenience our customers experience due to the weather.”

    Customers who are without power are encouraged to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) to report their outage or click the “Report Outage” link on www.firstenergycorp.com. In the event of severe weather, customers should immediately report downed wires to their utility or their local police or fire department. Customers should never go near a downed power line, even if they think it is no longer carrying electricity.

    FirstEnergy customers also can utilize a new free smartphone app to report outages and access important information and services related to their electric accounts. The app is available for Apple® iPhone® and AndroidTM smartphones. Customers can use the keyword "FirstEnergy" to locate the apps in the online store.

    In addition, customers can use FirstEnergy’s text messaging service to report outages and receive updates on reported outages. Text REG to 544487 (LIGHTS) to get started.

    For updated information on the company’s current outages, FirstEnergy’s storm restoration process and tips for staying safe, visit the 24/7 Power Center at www.firstenergycorp.com/outages.

    Customers are encouraged to prepare for the possibility of outages caused by winter storms:

    • Keep a flashlight and extra batteries handy. Use care when burning candles; open flames are a fire hazard.

    • Gather extra blankets or a sleeping bag for each person. Do not use gas stoves, kerosene heaters or other open-flame heat sources to prevent deadly carbon monoxide gas from building up in your home.

      If you have a water well and pump, keep an emergency supply of bottled water and/or fill your bathtub with fresh water.

      • Stock an emergency supply of convenience foods that do not require cooking.

      • Keep a battery-powered radio with extra batteries on hand. Tune to a local station

        for current storm information.

      • Have a hard-wired telephone or a charged cell phone handy in the event you need

        to report your electricity is out. Mobile phones can be charged in your vehicle using a car charger when the power is out. If you have a smart phone, this will ensure you have access to online information sources.

    Free Mediation Program Available to Assist New Jersey Residents with Sandy-Related Insurance Claims http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=49 The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI) has established a voluntary mediation program to assist New Jersey residents in swiftly resolving their Sandy-related insurance claims. The program, which is free of charge, allows property owners to submit homeowner, automobile and commercial property claims to an independent mediator who will review the case and assist in settlement discussions.

     

    Disputed Sandy-related claims that are greater than $1,000, are not flood-related, do not include a reasonable suspicion of fraud, and are based on policies in force at the time Sandy made landfall are eligible for mediation. Insurance carriers pay for the cost of the independent mediator. Policyholders who wish to bring legal representation to the mediation session may hire an attorney at their own expense.

     

    Claims under policies issued by or through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are not currently part of the mediation program. However, DOBI continues to discuss with NFIP the possibility of their participation in mediations at a later time.

     

    Application forms are now available online at www.adr.org/njsandy, by phone at 855-366-9774 or via email at njsandymediation@adr.org.

     

    For more information on the voluntary mediation program, please visit http://www.state.nj.us/dobi/division_consumers/insurance/sandymediation.html on the DOBI website.

    As a step towards addressing this problem our DPW will commence a complete flushing of our water system.  This will be done at night, between the hours of 8 pm and 4 am in an attempt to have as little impact on our residents as possible.

    The flushing will start tonight, March 25th, and will continue through the upcoming weeks.  Residents may expect to see a temporary discoloration of water and/or a decrease of pressure when the flushing is occuring between 8 pm and 4 am.  We recommend that you avoid running your tap water, using the washing machine or dishwasher.  If you do experience this slight discoloration please run cold water through your taps until it runs clear.  The water in Belmar is absolutely safe to drink and use.

    Belmar Holiday Lights http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=21 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 http://www.belmar.com/alertitem.php?id=15 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.
