The following letter was posted to the Holmdel Township website on Thursday, Nov. 1.
Local recovery efforts are continuing. With few exceptions, Township roads are cleared, and we are working with the County to clear their roads. Extensive power outages remain, and JCP&L does not yet have a firm estimate for restoration. Residents should be aware that the area remains hazardous due to downed lines, inoperative traffic signals, and potential additional tree falls.
Effective November 1st, Town Hall is closed until further notice except for limited emergency staffing. The community center is closed.
A County-wide curfew is in effect from the hours of 7:00 pm to 7:00 am.
If you have a life threatening emergency please call 911
I am in constant contact with JCP&L they are working around the clock to restore power as swiftly as possible.
The Fire Company on Route 520 and the Centerville Road First Aid Building have been set up as a charging station for use in charging electronics from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
