Farmingdale Council Quits

Politickernj is reporting that the entire borough council of Farmingdale is resigning tonight and that tonight’s scheduled council meeting has been canceled for lack of a quorum.

According the Politickernj, the governor appoints a new council in this circumstance.

Politickernj reported that all of the resigning council members are Republicans.  Monmouth GOP Chairman John Bennett is the borough attorney.

Mayor Jay Morgan, who has not resigned, could not be reached for comment.

Chairman Bennett told MMM that the resignations have been happening over the last month.  One council member, a Democrat per Bennett, resigned a month ago and a new Democrat was appointed but not sworn in.  Two Republican council members resigned last Tuesday and the remaining three Republican council members resigned last night.

Bennett also said that the borough clerk/administrator resigned effective August 1 and that the code enforcement officer resigned, came back and resigned again within the last month.

“You’ll have to ask them,” Bennett said when asked why the exodus, “I can tell you that it is not over anything illegal, it is a matter of personalities.”

Farmingdale is a .523 squre mile patch, population 1329, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, that is completely within the borders of Howell Township. Prior to 1903, Farmingdale was part of Howell.

Howell Mayor Bob Walsh says it is time for Farmingdale to be absorbed back into Howell. 

The borough does not have its own police department.  The State Police provides Farmingdale’s police services.   The borough has an elementary school.  High school students residing in the borough attend the Freehold Regional High School District.

Walsh noted that a Farmingdale resident was a Monmouth County Freeholder back in the 30’s or 40’s, and that Howell has never had a Freeholder. MMM suggested that if he could manage to take back Farmingdale, he could drop that complaint.
