Developmental Disabilities Committee
The Toms River Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Developmental Disabilities advocates for the education, servicing, medical equality, employment and integration of people with developmental disabilities. The committee serves as a voice to Mayor Hill and the Township Council Members on actions that will improve the lives of Toms River residents.
