Stay home, stay well.
Dear Hazlet Residents,
As always, we are wishing all of our residents and their families good health.
Monmouth County has resumed providing updated the numbers of positive cases in the towns, including Hazlet. As expected, these numbers have increased. Monmouth County Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone stated, “While this number is undoubtedly high, it is important to note that Monmouth County continues to move down on the list of New Jersey counties with the most cases.” Today, Monmouth is seventh among 21 counties.
Our continued vigilance of Governor Phil Murphy’s stay at home and social distancing executive orders will slow down the rate of positive case and “flatten the curve.” This will protect the most vulnerable, protect essential and emergency workers, protect our health care resource and protect ourselves.
At Town Hall, several of our dedicated employees are still reporting to work, minding the social distancing guidelines and using precautions.
This includes our sewer utility department which is processing payments coming in through the mail. One way you can help out the town is by paying your sewer bill through debit, credit card or ACH withdrawals through our online sewer payment portal. Simply enter some of your information and you will be taken to a screen to complete your payment. There is a small processing fee charged by the processor.
As we struggle to protect ourselves from COVID-19, please be mindful of properly disposing of mask, gloves and disinfectant wipes in the trash can. Some parking lots and shopping carts are being littered with these discarded items. All will agree it’s unsightly and unsanitary, so please take a few extra steps to throw those items away in the garbage bin. We’re all in this together!
Thank you and be safe.
