PREVENTING ICY CONDITIONS

The recent cold temperatures wreaked havoc on many of the Borough's streets, driveways and intersections. These conditions can be prevented by maintaining the storm drains and leaves on your property. Please help our Department of Public Works keep our streets safe from icy conditions by removing any leaves or yard waste from the storm drains and the street, as leaf collection is over.

New Jersey was pummeled with more precipitation in 2018 than in any other year since record keeping began in 1895. While sump pumps are working overtime, discharging water into the street is prohibited and is attributing to icy conditions.

Below freezing temperatures during the evening hours are predicted for this evening and throughout the weekend. Let's all work together to do everything we can to keep Oceanport safe.

CLOSURE OF BOROUGH'S RECYCLING CENTER

Unfortunately, due to the pending sale of the former Borough Hall property, combined with significant cost increases for the disposal of materials being brought to the Recycling Center, the Borough has made the decision to close the Recycling Center effective January 31, 2019.

We are urging all residents to take advantage of your curbside recycling, with the exception of electronics, which are accepted free of charge at the Monmouth County Reclamation Center, 6000 Asbury Ave., Tinton Falls. Please continue to contact the Borough Hall to schedule pickup of appliances and tires, which is done by our Department of Public Works.

Mayor's Message

2018 is now in our rear-view mirror and the untraveled road that is 2019 is rushing towards us as Oceanport begins preparation for its 100th birthday in 2020. Oceanport has undergone a lot of changes over the past 99 years, but 2018 was especially transformative.

Monmouth Park Racetrack, Oceanport’s biggest taxpayer and employer, was teetering on the edge of irrelevancy prior to 2018. But, on June 14, 2018, Governor Phil Murphy placed the first legal sports bet in New Jersey at The Monmouth Park Sports Book by William Hill and Monmouth Park’s financial outlook changed much for the better. Then, on December 17, 2018, the New Jersey Senate unanimously approved a bill that would provide 50 million dollars’ worth of purse supplements to the thoroughbred horse industry over the next 5 years. While sports betting makes Monmouth Park, as a whole, more financially stable (pun intended), these purse subsidies specifically bolster New Jersey’s horse racing industry and make it possible for Monmouth Park to once again compete on equal footing with racetracks in surrounding states, all of which have long-standing subsidized purse structures. Monmouth Park Racetrack is THE most historic and most beautiful racetrack on the East Coast and these purse subsidies will allow for it to reclaim its premier racing venue status. Across the board, 2018 was a big win for Monmouth Park and Oceanport.. Read more...
