Town Hall Meeting About Rebuilding the Jersey Shore


WHAT: VFW Post 8867 and Local Jersey Shore Residents to host a Town Hall Meeting focused on education and insight for those looking to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Building professionals, local leadership, and concerned residents will come together in this open forum for an educational presentation and open discussion about cost-effective solutions and defensive building practices that will enable the residents of the Jersey Shore to rebuild their homes and communities stronger than ever. 

During the Town Hall meeting, there will be opportunities for attendees to speak directly to experienced building professionals; learn about the rebuilding process and challenges currently being faced by residents across the Tri-State area; and receive engineering and building planning insight comprised of the newest in building technology and defensive building practices.

WHEN: Sunday, February 24, 2013 from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.

WHERE: VFW Post 8867, 373 Adamston Road, Brick

WHY: Thousands of homes were damaged and destroyed during the severe flooding, high-winds and rains associated with Hurricane Sandy, leaving  New York and New Jersey residents disenfranchised, displaced and dispossessed.

In our experience in dealing with Local Authorities, Building Departments and FEMA, we’ve come to realize there is a lack of awareness about the newest engineering, defensive building practices and applications, and we hope to shed light on plans to rebuild these communities. 

For those with little insurance, the wrong type of coverage, or different insurance adjusters' opinions, this Town Hall is for you as well. This open forum is about education and the restoration of hope for anyone and everyone able to attend, so that no family is left behind or forgotten because of the cost to rebuild or the lack of the right type of insurance.

You mean that we are finally able to say how our taxes are spent? Of course not. This is a good show for the people, but if we don't start rebuilding now, forget about the summer. When you say the same thing over and over, that means it will never get done... ~ Have a nice day! ~

What should also be discussed at the town hall meeting is the relief package, what it means for residents, and how to ensure you have the right people inspecting your home. http://www.entechgroupinc.com/20130214-environmental-services-nj-9/

too bad our "leaders" fleeced the tax payers with this Towns that employed debris-removal contractors other than a state-hired Florida firm achieved savings that, when totaled, amount to millions of dollars of taxpayer money. Florida-based AshBritt Inc. charged towns $21.25 per cubic yard to gather roadside debris and bring it to a collection site within 15 miles. That was nearly double the $11.70 asking price of another Florida company, Bergeron, and other firms, records show
