Two Township Council Members Sworn In

Oaths administered at the council's regular meeting Tuesday

During a brief ceremony Tuesday evening, two appointed members of Toms River's Township Council were sworn in after winning their seats in November. 

Alfonso Manforti, representing Ward 4, and Jeffrey Carr, of Ward 3, were administered their oaths at the council's first regular meeting in December. Both terms for the Republican representatives are for one year and will expire on Dec. 31, 2013.

"You'll make a wonderful addition to our council," said Council President Mo Hill. 

Manforti, the current Ward 4 councilman, defeated Democratic challenger Eli Eytan by about a 1,000 vote margin in November. He congratulated Carr during his council report. 

"We kind of came in at a strange time together," Manforti said, noting that it was an off-year council election. 

Carr, who was appointed to the Ward 3 seat after Hill won the at-large council seat last year, ran unopposed for and garnered over 6,800 votes. 

Manforti lives on Lakehurst Road and previously served on the council filling the vacancy of Councilwoman Melanie Donohue-Appleby last year. He is now appointed in the spot that state Assemblymen Gregory McGuckin held.

Manforti, a chiropractor in Toms River, was the Regular Republican Organization of Ocean County candidate for Ward 4 — the downtown area of Toms River — and previously served on the Toms River Municipal Utilities Authority and as the president of the Toms River Republican club

Carr, of Constitution Avenue, works as an engineer and was appointed to Ward 3, the northwest portion of Toms River, in November 2011.

maybe one of these can help me...My mom just recieved a letter from Toms River stating she has to pay $300 for permits to put the heat etc. back in her house! Shes 84 and FEMA is not helping at all. How can Toms River be so heartless and do this to the people who have been paying their salaries for 30 years!!! .. Wall, Manasquan, and several other towns have omitted these fees and said "get your lives back together"...whats my recourse? this is so unfair and someone will be paying for this with their reputation as News12 NJ will be on the scene soon asking questions!!! Good Luck Toms River!!! Get ready for an embarassing week.
