After a successful debut in Howell last week, Monmouth County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon, Sheriff Shaun Golden and Surrogate Rosemarie Peters are bringing the Mobile County Connection to the Middletown Library on Tuesday from 10 am till 1 p.m.
The Mobile County Connection office is housed in a large mobile command center.
This is a great opportunity for Middletown area residents who need to renew or apply for their passports, want to update their voting records, need notary services or have questions about wills, estates and guardianship/adoptions to avoid the trek to Freehold or Neptune.
Sheriff’s Officers will be offering Youth and Ident-Adult Identification Cards and information on the proper installation of child safety seats, along with other agency services. Unarmed fugitives can surrender to Golden if there are no kids around.
“We are proud to have formed such an important outreach program,” said Hanlon. “It is the first of its kind in Monmouth County and features mobile government services in an effort to connect people with government in their communities.”
“This new Mobile County Connection enhances our continuing efforts to make government services and public safety initiatives more accessible to the residents of Monmouth County,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden. “We anticipate the Mobile County Connection to be a tremendous success as it travels to municipalities, senior centers and libraries throughout the county to serve the public’s needs in a timely and convenient fashion.”
“We look forward to bringing the Mobile County Connection to communities and meeting the residents who will utilize its services,” said Peters, a former Middletown Mayor. “Having access to county government services on wheels allows us to better serve the public.”
