Updated Streetlights Enhance Area


TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The access road along the Ortley beachfront will be open shortly.  “Superstorm Sandy essentially wiped out most of the utility poles in the beachfront section of town and crews have wrapped up their work on the Municipal part of the boardwalk,” said Toms River Township Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher.


According to JCP&L, all of the new lights on the poles are fully operational. “This means that we can begin to take down the barricades that are blocking access on Ocean Terrace & Ocean Avenues.  Without the utility poles, it was so dark in that area of town that it was unsafe at night,” Kelaher added.


Instead of the regular “Cobra head” lights that you would typically see on light poles, Toms River officials have decided to upgrade and have a Colonial-style fixture installed.  Bob Chankalian, the Township Engineer stated, “The upgraded lights were done in an effort to make the area more aesthetically pleasing and to enhance the look of the beachfront area. In addition, JCP&L was able to install the electricity with fewer wires so it’s also visually pleasing to the eye.”

Whitesville location is now closed


TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Toms River Animal Shelter is still a few months away, but the interior of the facility is open and ready for pet adoptions.


The impressive two-million dollar facility, located at 235 Oak Avenue, next to the Police Station, shutters the antiquated facility on Whitesville Road. “The former location was close to Jackson Township and out of the way for a majority of our residents,” Mayor Tom Kelaher states. “This building not only modernizes the needs of an animal shelter, but it is centrally located for the residents of Toms River.”

Youth Services Held Family Bonding Nights PDF Print E-mail

Toms River Youth Services recently held two events for parents to spend one-on-one time with their children.


“Back in January, we held our first-ever ‘Daddy and Me’ night at the Toms River Youth Services. ‘Daddy and Me’ was created to help bring dads and their children together, to spend some quality time alone,” said Adam Silversmith, Toms River Youth Services Division Manager.  During their “Daddy and Me” session, families put together wooden crafts such as the Statue of Liberty, butterflies or a jet.  Silversmith added, “The children and dads worked together and when the dads ran into some difficult steps, they sought assistance from other dads.  It was a great time seeing everyone interact and helping out one another.  The children also ate pizza and dessert with their dads.” Click here for more
