Whence Monmouth County Newsletters?

Monmouth County used to publish a variety of newsletters. Monmouth In Focus ran quarterly from Spring 2007 to Summer 2009 and then lapsed. There's a video series called Monmouth In Focus,but the undated episodes are focused on specific topics of a timeless, informational nature. The 16 Feb 2011 edition of The News Transcript said that Monmouth In Focus was beginning its fourth season.

The county's newsletter Senior Newslines ran monthly in 2007 and then quarterly from Fall 2008 to Spring 2010. The Monmouth County 4-H and Rutgers Extension ran a couple of newsletters between 2006 and 2009, but those too have disappeared. You can still subscribe to county newsletters at the county website, but don't hold your breath expecting anything.

The county is up to date on its press releases and publishes them regularly. You can also subscribe to a variety of county email lists that will push to your virtual mailbox just the sorts of information you want. When you register, you pick and choose what categories of information interest you, such as press releases, special alerts, park system notices, business, 4-H, county golf news, etc, etc.

Perhaps the email notices have supplanted the newsletters?
