Welcome to Farmingdale

2019 Memorial Day Parade

Farmingdale Annual Memorial Day Parade!


Monday May 27th, come out and be a part of your community. The parade kicks off with the annual Lutz Park Memorial ceremony hosted by the Howell VFW Post 9691 with members from the Ladies Auxiliary and the American Legion to start at 11:30, followed by the parade kick off at 1:00.
Join us down on Main St., grab a chair and your favorite beverage in a red solo cup,  bring your friends and family and hang with the rest of us!
Annually with over 100+ marching units, including the famous Howell High School marching unit & band, and many many other musical acts, including the CBA and Police Pipe and Drum units, Rag Time and the School of Rock rock bands as well as local dance troops, it's really a festive time.
The State Police mounted unit and the Howell Color Guard unit lead off the parade followed up by all of the local Police, Fire, OEM and First Aid units showing off their rigs. Many local Scouting units, Shriner Clowns on their mini bikes and go carts, and church organization and local business floats help celebrate the day. Many of our state, county and local officials are in attendance either marching or riding in cool historic cars and trucks. Closed out by Cowboy Larry and his Horse team. I know I have missed many of the other fantastic marching units, because there is just too many to list, but we thank them all for attending and making this such a great event. This event is made possible because of generous donations by our local businesses and borough professionals, there is never a cost to the taxpayer for the event.
PLEASE tell all of your family coming in to either participate or just partake, the Parade Route is CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC from 12:00 noon until 2:00 or until the parade has fully completed it's way back to Academy Street and Southard Avenue. State Police will be ticketing any vehicles on the parade route not in the parade during those times!
     It's a great time to remember and thank those who served for all of us and celebrate the freedoms they have afforded us.
Please continue to thank those who are still serving who
continue to afford the same for all Americans today!
NOTE: This year the reviewing stand will be in front of the Old Bank of America Building, soon to be the new home of the Farmingdale Borough Municipal Offices.
We hope to see you all there!

May 8, 2019

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to give a quick status update on the program.

 All towns have completed the outreach meetings as of yesterday.  Most of the residents who turned out were appreciative of the info and welcomed the rate reduction.  For those residents who couldn’t come, please make sure the video we provided is posted on your website.  It’s a good alternative and basically the same presentation we gave at each of the meetings. 

 We have also begun to receive some returned mail.  We will check the data provided from JCP&L and if there is an alternate address provided (billing address vs. service address) we will send to the other address.  If we can’t locate them, the account will be opted out. 

 Again, remember that some people should not receive a letter because they already have a third party supplier (you’d be amazed at how many people have another supplier and don’t realize it) or have solar.  We were made aware that JCP&L didn’t totally scrub the solar customers from the list they provided us but we will ensure those folks are definitely opted out.  For the others that say they didn’t get it and it wasn’t for either of those reasons, I have no answer for that unfortunately.  But, for anyone who didn’t get it, missed it, threw it away etc., JCP&L will send a confirmation letter prior to enrollment to confirm their choice.  It also gives them 7 more days to rescind so no one is enrolled without giving some notice.  This should happen around the 1st - 2nd week of May but I’ll reach out to remind you beforehand.

 I think that’s it for now but I’m here if you need anything!

Dear Borough of Farmingdale Residents,

I am proud to write to you today to share the good news about the Borough of Farmingdale’s renewed participation in the Monmouth-Ocean Area Energy Cooperative which is a state-authorized “Community Aggregation Program”. We previously seperated from the Co-Op with Howell, but have become the lead agent in a new Co-Op along side Point Pleasant including the towns of Manasquan and Ocean Township. Residents should have already received letters like this Daly-Energy Co-Op Letter, which is my letter.

 The program is designed to offer you and your neighbors reduced rates on your electric bill.   This is the same program that was in place a few years ago, and it is important to point out this is an Opt-Out program. You must request to not be included if you do not want to take advantage of the program. It is not done this way to trick users into the program, it is the way the programs are required to operate per NJ State Law N.J.A.C. 14:4-6.1 et seq.   The bottom line is that when we purchase energy from bulk re-sellers, together as a community, we are able to offer lower, more stable rates to the residents. As a governing body I feel we would be remiss not offering the residents ways to save money.

 The attached documents contain important information explaining the Community Aggregation Program established by Farmingdale to provide lower electric generation rates than you would currently pay with JCP&L. We are pleased to offer this cost saving program for your electric bills! Some of you may recall that Farmingdale participated in the program at the initial on-set back in 2015 and we are pleased to be participating again and offering even lower rates.  Please take a few moments to read through the enclosed material.  An example of savings realized by those that continued in the program were known to be saving approximately 12%, and even though each user is different, there is a real benefit to this program. Please know, its ok if you are not interested, it is something that is being made available to the residents of Farmingdale.

 Your participation does not affect your neighbors opportunity to take part in the program. The link below goes to the NJ Agrigation FAQ's page which you may find helpful in making your decision. http://www.njaggregation.us/frequently-asked-questions-v2.html.You can also watch this video to get more information, https://youtu.be/_Q3svJ66gh4.

If you have no interest, its OK, just send back the letter in the pre-addressed and stamped envelope included, requesting to Opt Out. You can also call the number, (877) 292-3904 which is provided in the letter, or go to the website www.njaggregation.us/MOAEC also provided in the letter, and as a live link here, to register your Opt Out decision. No response from you means you will be automatically opted in.

Thanks

Mayor & Council, The Borough of Farmingdale

NO TO BIG MARIJUANA

http://nj-ramp.org/TAKE ACTION:  TELL YOUR LEGISLATORS TO SAY NO TO Say No to BIG MARIJUANA
 
It's been 200 days since Governor Murphy took office and promised to legalize recreational marijuana.  Because of the support of volunteers and grassroots advocates like you, we've been successful in pushing back on the Big Marijuana industry and blocking their agenda.
 
However, the battle is not over.  We are asking for your help to stop lawmakers from passing a short-sighted bill to 
legalize recreational marijuana in the Garden State this summer.  The marijuana industry is working with political bosses in New Jersey to pass legislation in August - when they think most New Jerseyans are on vacation and won't be paying attention.
 
We are asking for your help to contact your legislators TODAY to let them know you're opposed to this dangerous proposal. Click here to either call or send a letter to your legislator.
 
This is not a message about Govornor Murphy or any political party, its a message to show support that recreational marijuana has no place in our streets of Farmingdale. Tell them how we feel.
 
Don't believe that legalization of marijuana is the wrong direction for NJ, please feel free to take a look at the two web sites below. The Mayor and Council feel very strongly that this legislation would be detremental to our citizens, not only of Farmingdale but all across the country.
