Welcome to Oceanport

The Borough of Oceanport, incorporated in 1920,is a predominantly residential community along the shores of the Shrewsbury River.

Oceanport is home of Monmouth Park Racetrack and Fort Monmouth. Though only 3.2 square miles, Oceanport's nearly six thousand residents enjoy not only the Shrewsbury River, but various recreational sports programs, an active senior group and a true feeling of community.

Oceanport boasts various volunteer organizations who give countless man hours to our community making it a place residents are proud to call home.

Mayor's Message

Normally I try to keep this column on the light and breezy side because we've already got enough serious news to deal with in our everyday lives. This month's topic is the municipal budget and, for the life of me, I can't figure out a way to be "light and breezy" about such a boring and complicated subject that impacts upon all of us so profoundly. For most people, the approach of Spring brings thoughts of warmer weather, flowers in bloom, and baseball being played by kids in the parks. For the Borough Council, however, it is a time of knotted stomachs because Spring Time is Budget Time and Budget Time is the governmental equivalent of a root canal.

This year will be no different than any of the years past, except for the fact that we now have a written plan of attack for the fiscal challenges Oceanport faces over the next decade or so. Last year, for what I believe is the first time in our Borough's history, our Business Administrator, Raymond Poerio, and our C.F.O., Katie LaPorta, working in conjunction with the Borough's Finance Committee, Clerk, Police Chief, Fire Chief, administrative staff, municipal court staff, auditors and financial advisors, put together a budget analysis that provides an in-depth profile of where Oceanport is now financially and where it projects to be in three, five, and seven years. This analysis will be augmented and improved again this year as new information becomes available and our staff is able to drill down even deeper into the Borough's finances. I can state without fear of contradiction that the detail contained in this document is unprecedented in Oceanport's history and represents a major step forward in our ability to forecast, predict, and control the costs associated with our Borough's growth and development.
