Ocean County Utilities Authority Replacing Force Main on Princeton Ave

On or about November 11, the Ocean County Utilities Authority will begin replacing the force main (sewer pipe) along the westbound shoulder of Princeton Avenue starting at the Jordan Road & Princeton Avenue intersection to Beaver Dam road. During the installation of the new force main pipe, residents may have limited access to their driveways for a short time while the new pipe is being installed in the roadway in the front of their residence. OCUA and their contractor will attempt to contact each home owner the day before the work is to be conducted in the vicinity of their home so they have a chance to relocate their vehicles.

The contractors must excavate and install new pipe and temporarily pave as they move along the shoulder of the highway. The BTPD has been made aware of the work and will be on site for traffic control.

Two Way Traffic will be maintained throughout the project. The project is expected to last approximately 60 days.

Annual Dune Grass Distribution on November 9

Public Works will be distributing dune grass for planting on a first-come first served basis on Saturday, November 9from 8am – 12pm (or while supplies last) at the Police Substation Parking Lot on Route 35.

LAKE RIVIERA LOWERED TO ACCOMMODATE PROJECT

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Dam Safety has ordered the township to lower Lake Riviera a maximum of 4’ so that a compromised outfall pipe can be replaced. The township has no control over the timing of this project.

The township has contracted with ARH Engineering to manage this project. The project must be done in accordance with strict procedures as laid out by the DEP. As of June 28, we are awaiting approval of the applications for the required permits.

The township expects this project to take approximately one month and expects it to be complete in late July/early August. The township understands the concerns and frustrations of residents and apologizes for any inconveniences caused by this project.

 

Reasonable Modification for Senior Bus Transportation Policy

REASONABLE MODIFICATION POLICY FOR SENIOR BUS TRANSPORTATION

Under Title II of the ADA, state and local governments are required to make reasonable modifications to policies, practices and procedures where necessary to avoid discrimination.

For those riders who require additional assistance, Brick Township will endeavor to accommodate all reasonable modification requests for such assistance by following procedures outlined below:

  1. Riders must inform BRICK SENIOR SERVICES of the need and specific type of additional assistance requested at the time ride reservation is made.
  2. Reservationist will log the information within the client information system and advise Department Head of the specific rider need/request to determine the resources required to accommodate rider.
  3. The Department Head will evaluate the request and determine whether the request is reasonable to perform.
  4. If the Department Head deems the service requested to be unreasonable to perform or to repeat on a regular basis, he/she must cite specific reasoning to support the finding and inform the ADA COORDINATOR
  5. If the ADA COORDINATOR concurs with the finding of the Department Head, the rider must be so informed via phone call at least 48 hours before the requested/scheduled trip. The finding must also be communicated to the rider expeditiously by written correspondence or email.

Riders may appeal any such decisions by following established ADA grievance procedures.
