Toms River Public Works phones are having some issues today, the township reported, and callers should follow these instructions:
If trying to reach Public Works call 732-255-1000 and key in extensions 8140, 8103, 8110 or 8104, to speak to a representative of public works.
Those four extensions will connect, whereas waiting for the voice message menu to load might not. Callers are asked to use the main number plus the four-digit extension.
The township reported the public works telephones are experiencing "tech difficulties with the voice mail system," in an announcement this morning.
The public works department will also have a holiday on Monday. No garbage or recycling will be collected. If your collection day falls on one of these days or after, your recycling and garbage will be collected one day later. This will follow through for the whole week, until Friday's collections are completed on the next day, Saturday.
