Representatives from several State departments will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance to residents.
Editor's note: A previous version of this story reported that the event would be held Monday. The event is being held Tuesday.
Representatives from several state departments are slated to spend the day in Monmouth County Tuesday, offering expert advice and assistance in a number of areas to victims of Hurricane Sandy, Gov. Chris Christie's office announced recently.
Senior staff members from the Department of Banking and Insurance, Department of Community Affairs, Department of Environmental Protection, and the Business Action Center will be on hand at Union Beach Hose Co. #1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to do casework for residents who need assistance.
The day of casework is part of Gov. Chris Christie's Mobile Cabinet effort, which seeks to connect New Jersey residents with staff members of various departments by deploying them to areas in need.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will also be on hand to provide assistance.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, many New Jersey residents continue to struggle with their insurance companies, the impact of the newly adopted flood elevation maps, and getting their businesses back up and running, among other issues. By bringing the departments to the people, the hope is that questions and concerns can be addressed quickly and correctly.
The Mobile Cabinet day is open to the public and is being held at the firehouse at 1224 Florence Ave. in Union Beach, Monmouth County. Representatives will be on hand from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to assist in answering questions and doing casework.
