The July 15th meeting of the Middletown Township Committee was held at the Tonya Keller Recreation Center, in North Middletown. This meeting happened to be the only meeting of the month for the Committee. I'm still in the process of viewing the video but wanted to post it before to much time has gone by.
Here's a rundown of the night's event:
Members of the Ideal Beach Community Association were presented with a sign that will be mounted on the concession stand at Ideal Beach.

Residents spoke of newly installed no parking signs on their streets by the beach, leaving them with nowhere to park even though people are parking there to go to the beach and have issues of with illegal parking along Pt. Monmouth Rd, by Bayshore Waterfront Park and no police enforcement. The police chief explained that they were not equipped to handle this situation.
As always you can download a copy of the Meeting Agenda that contains the discussion items and the proposed resolutions and ordinances that were voted on or presented during the meeting. A box around an item is a link, bringing you further into the document to that resolution or ordinance. At the end of the resolution there will be a link bringing you back to the agenda. Attached to this agenda is also the monthly bill list, so that everyone can see how the Township is spending our tax dollars.
