Meeting Notes (link at bottom)

Opening Remarks – Saturday, June 27, 2015

Firstly, I want to thank you all for being here today and being part of the Holgate Taxpayers’ Association and actively demonstrating your support for your community. I want to thank those of you who actively participate in our scheduled activities. This coming year we do need some volunteers who can care for the new plantings we will complete in the parking lot and the Bond’s Park. Until the plants take root, we need some volunteers to keep them watered and weeded. If you live close to those locations, we really need your help.

Over this past year, the Association has worked on several initiatives and I am pleased to say that several have been realized. First, the signs along the boulevard indicating the proper direction of travel for pedestrians and bicyclists have been installed. Second, working with the County and the Township, a stop sign has now been installed at the intersection of McKinley and S. Long Beach Blvd. This is a good safety improvement. Following last year’s spring membership meeting, we contacted
the County and got information about its land conservation program. Subsequently, letters were sent to the owner of the Rosemma – Beck property to see if they were interested in participating in the conservation program. Since December, we have been working with the residents at the west end of Janet Road and the Township to try to make some changes to the design of the new pump station so that a look more conducive to the characteristics of the surrounding area would be used.

The Holgate Taxpayers’ Association is determined to make a difference for our community. Together we will accomplish more.


Meeting With Commissioners

Our meeting with Commissioners Mancini and Bayard is scheduled for next Saturday, June 27th at 10:00 am in the Township Municipal Building in Brant Beach. Commissioner Lattanzi is unable to attend. The meeting will begin promptly at 10:00 am as our guests have another Taxpayers Association meeting to attend following Holgate’s meeting. I hope you all can attend this very critical meeting next Saturday and that you will continue to support the Association’s work by renewing your membership. We have some additional activities planned for later this year and we are continuing to build up a fund for dune vegetation plantings that will be utilized upon completion of the beach replenishment project. As you may know, the beach replenishment project does provide for some dune vegetation. However, the HTA will plant other plants to further strengthen the berm. We will see you on Saturday
