Harvey Cedars Commissioners, HCTA members and friends converge on Ocean County Freeholders Meeting

Over 150 people filled the meeting room at the Ocean County Freeholders meeting to advocate for a safer BLVD thru Harvey Cedars on Wednesday, Aug 7th. 23 citizens in favor of making the BLVD safer for all who use it, spoke to the Board and addressed a multitude of safety concerns.

Hear ye, Hear ye!!!

( The Town Crier worked across the pond announcing a royal baby….we thought it might grab your attention here in Harvey Cedars announcing an important event!)

In order to improve safety on the Boulevard, the vast majority of our residents are in favor of the proposed lane reconfiguration: going to three lanes so that the shoulders are wide enough to accommodate walkers, runners, bikers, and baby strollers, safely. While the County Freeholders are still resisting this plan that they themselves commissioned, we have a chance to urge them to make the right decision for our community.<./p>

Please consider joining your friends and neighbors in attending the next Freeholders meeting,
Wednesday August 7th. The HC Taxpayers Association has arranged for free transportation: buses will begin boarding at Sunset Park at 2:30 PM, or you may arrive at the meeting on your own. The Freeholders meeting starts at 4pm at the Ocean County Admin Building located at 101 Hooper Ave, Toms River, NJ in room 119. Parking is available in the rear of the building.

Bus sign up is also available at Boro Hall.

There are so few times in life when doing something so small, like going to a meeting, can do so much for so many. With enough support, we will convince the County Freeholders to make the necessary changes to the boulevard, before someone is seriously injured. Thank You.

We wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy, Healthy 2013!

It’s that time of year again – We think about the year that has passed us by and contemplate what the new year will bring. The HCTA Board of Trustees would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy, Healthy 2013. May we, our families, our community and our country bear our burdens with grace and wish for blessings in the year ahead.

Cheers! – HCTA

Borough Announces latest Bulk Trash Pick-up!

Good evening HCTA members:

The Borough has asked the HCTA to help them get the word out about  the next bulk trash pickup. It will be this Saturday (yes, the day after tomorrow), December 15. Residents are asked to follow the county trash guidelines (found on the HCTA website). Hazardous waste WILL NOT be picked up.

Clean out your storage areas folks and get the waste to the curb!

Additionally, I will put in a shameless plug right now for the HCTA Annual Townwide yard sale to be held the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. If you have items worthy of others (remember,  one man’s trash in another man’s treasure) put it aside for the May Sale and join our initiative! The HCTA Attendance has increased every year and it is good to bring additional ‘business’ into Harvey Cedars.

Stay safe and enjoy this blessed season!

The HCTA
