Township Will Pick Up Storm Debris, Focus On Hardest-Hit Areas First

Employees working 14 to 16 hour days to cope with task, public works director says

Be patient.

That's the advice storm-weary Public Works Director Steven Seiler has for residents who put storm debris from Hurricane Sandy out at curbside for pickup.

Public Works employees are concentrating on the hardest hit sections of the township first, especially Glen Cove and Amherst Beach, he said.

"We are running 10 trucks a day, working 14 to 16 hour days," he said.

Some homes in Glen Cove had between two to three feet of water in them, Seiler said.

"They were the hardest hit right now," he said. "Most of the homes in Glen Cove, the whole first floors are out on the curb."

Workers will eventually get to every house in the township with debris and bulk items at curbside, he said.

Regular garbage pickup has already begun, but recycling pickups will not resume until "possibly" next week, Seiler said.

The township is using the recycling area at the public works department on Pinewald-Keswick Road as a transfer station for debris, which is then trucked to the Ocean County Landfill in Manchester Township, he said.

"We will work and work until it's done," Seiler said.

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way.

More strange coverage. One article says the Point was the hardest hit spot and yet we are not receiving the aid we need. Notice which area is left out in this article - Good Luck Point. People here want to repair or start from scratch but are receiving no information pertaining to our area. Many have paid for dumpsters and clean up crews and others are doing things by themselves. We have 3 businesses out here - two of which are running and one that is clearing away a section that I am sure they will want to rebuild. Why are we left out of all of these efforts? Maybe the politicians and civil servants need to spend time with homeowners out here who have in good part said they want to return. We just don't seem to count even with the sky high taxes we all have been paying. Something is wrong.
