Arnone Report: School’s Open, So Are the Beaches and Local Businesses

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend! A new school year is officially upon us and though it may look different than past school years, we still must be extra cautious when driving around our communities!

It’s always important – and especially now that children are back in school – that everyone obeys speed limits, stops for pedestrians and avoids distractions when driving. It’s also important that pedestrians and children walking to school use crosswalks or cross at intersections and wait for the walk signal before stepping into the road.

Arnone Report: Bridge Rehab in Long Branch and Support for Brookdale

By Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Hello everyone!

While I could say the last few weeks have been very busy, the truth of the matter is that the County stays busy around the year with ongoing projects and initiatives.

I would like to provide a few updates from the departments I oversee, including the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. I’m proud to serve as the liaison to this department and cannot praise enough the tremendous work these – and all – County employees do on a daily basis to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in Monmouth County.

Fiore will not seek reelection in Middletown

Middletown Deputy Mayor Tony Fiore

Deputy Mayor Tony Fiore will not seek a 5th consecutive term on the Middletown Township Committee.

In a February 29 email to Middletown’s Republican leadership, Fiore said, “My recent expanded responsibilities at work (which include many nights of travel) coupled with my most important responsibilities as a husband and father, will make it impossible for me to continue to serve the Committee the only way I know how, at 110%.”

“The Township is in better shape than it was when I came into office 12 years ago,” Fiore said in a phone interview. “That’s what I’m most proud of.”

First elected in 2008 in the wake of Operation Bid Rig, the investigation by Chris Christie’s U.S. Attorney’s Office that resulted in the indictment and convictions of many Monmouth County elected officials including a Middletown Township Committee member, Fiore has been the driving force in reforming Middletown’s municipal government.

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Happy February! I’m excited that our friend Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow signaling an early spring will be upon us.

I would like to update you on what I have been up to the last couple weeks.

My fellow Freeholders and I have been keeping busy working on the 2020 Monmouth County Budget. As I have said many times before, we do not start working on the budget in the early months of the year. Instead, my colleagues and I work throughout the entire year to efficiently run our departments while keeping costs down. Read the rest of this entry »

Arnone Report: Bridge Repairs, Recycling, Shared Services and other good stuff

By Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone is staying warm, happy and healthy this winter season. It sure has been a cold one the last few days but there is only a little more than 100 days until the unofficial start to the summer season!

In the meantime, I would like to provide an update of different projects and initiatives taking place throughout Monmouth County.

As of yesterday, Monday January 20th, the Ocean Avenue Shark River Bridge (W-43) has been closed for emergency repairs. During a routine inspection of the Bridge, deterioration of the steel pinions, which support the bridge when it opens and closes, was found. The contract for the project was awarded to Cornell & Company, Inc. of Woodbury, NJ in the amount of $494,000.

Arnone Report: Honoring Vets, Fighting Cancer and Thanking Voters

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Happy November! It’s hard to believe we’re just a few weeks away from celebrating the holidays. It’s agreat time of the year and, as always, there is so much going on and so much to do in Monmouth County.

I’d like to start by thanking all of the veterans, past and present, who have served our country. We should continue to recognize their sacrifices throughout the entire year. It is because of their sacrifices we continue to enjoy our freedoms. Let us also not forget the sacrifices made by their families!

To honor our veterans, I spent the day on Monday with Sheriff Shaun Golden at numerous ceremonies throughout Monmouth County. First we joined my fellow Freeholder Sue Kiley and the Manasquan VFW Post 1838 for a brief ceremony before they headed to the NYC Veterans Day Parade. Afterwards, we attended the Asbury Park and Bradley Beach Veterans Day Ceremonies. Thank you to all our veterans for their courage, sacrifice and service to our great country!
