News Updates as of 13 June 2009

  • The Asbury Park press provided a nice article about the Rock n Music Idol 2009 event, which was held on 7 June 2009 at the VFW in Cliffwood Beach.
  • Matawan Council passed a resolution on 4 June 2009 opposing plans for the MOM rail line to join the North Jersey Coast Line at Matawan-Aberdeen or Red Bank, per Independent. Congress has alloted over $1.5 million towards the plan over the past two years, which seems to be driving all this.
  • Monmouth County has drafted a coastal evacuation plan, according to the Independent. Certain roads need to be widened and other upgrades made to allow heavy traffic to move away from the shoreline in case of a major storm. It looks like Aberdeen and Matawan, part of the northern portion of the county plan, would be at the receiving end of any rush from the seashore.
  • Matawan residents complaining about their property tax assessments, per Independent.
  • NJ State Assembly is developing a stimulus bill. Samuel D Thompson, R-Matawan, tried to delay the bill but he was overruled by the Democratic majority, per NJ Biz.
