NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on April 11, 2016, the Township Committee of the Township of Neptune adopted a Resolution approving a Change Order exceeding 20% of the original contract amount for the project known as: Reconstruction of the Ocean Grove Boardwalk Phase II – North End. The original contract amount of the project is $622,739.00. The additional amount to be expended is $188,795.20, which results in a revised project amount of $811,534.20.

This change order is the result of unforeseen conditions that were discovered during the construction of the project. Specifically, these conditions are 1) the discovery of a previous stone jetty under the damaged boardwalk which necessitates the need to develop alternate anchor methods for the new boardwalk; and, 2) the discovery that the existing concrete piers at the northernmost section of the project are damaged and cannot support the proposed on-grade boardwalk which necessitates the installation of helical piles between the existing concrete piers to support the boardwalk on-grade.

This notice is given in accordance with the provisions of N.J.A.C. 5:30-11.9(c)6.

Richard J. Cuttrell,

Municipal Clerk









NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Board of the Township of Neptune will conduct a public hearing at 7:00 PM on April 27, 2016 to consider the adoption of Amendments to the Neptune Township Master Plan consisting of updates to the Utility Service Plan Element and Community Facilities Plan Element of the Master Plan pursuant to Article 3 of the New Jersey Municipal Land Use Law [N.J.S.A. 40:55D-28.b.(5) and (6)].

The public hearing will be held at the Neptune Township Municipal Building, 25 Neptune Boulevard, Neptune, New Jersey and public comment will be taken during the public hearing. Potential action taken by the Planning Board at the public hearing will be the adoption of the Utility Service Plan Element and the Community Facilities Plan Element as part of the Township’s Master Plan.

The Utility Service Plan Element establishes goals, objectives, and baseline conditions with regard to Township public utilities including potable water supply, drainage and flood control, sanitary and storm sewers, electricity and natural gas supply, solid waste disposal, and telecommunications facilities. The proposed amendment to the Utility Service Plan Element will append a Capital Improvement Plan to this element of the Township Master Plan. The Capital Improvement Plan discusses the Township’s six-year plan for expenditures on capital projects and equipment purchases and provides a schedule that identifies options for financing these expenditures.

The Community Facilities Plan Element provides a description of existing and proposed community facilities including cultural facilities, historic sites, libraries, hospitals, firehouses, police stations, schools, and other similar facilities. The amendment to this Plan Element describes how the Township’s community facilities were affected by Hurricane Sandy and the susceptibility of the Township’s community facilities to other types of natural and man-made disasters. The amendment also outlines how the Township utilizes or plans to utilize its community facilities during emergency management planning, pre-disaster preparation, and post-disaster recovery efforts.

A copy of the Utility Service Plan Element/Capital Improvement Plan and the Community Facilities Plan Element will be on file and available for public inspection at least ten (10) days prior to the date of the hearing in the office of the Administrative Officer of the Planning Board at the Neptune Township Municipal Building, 25 Neptune Boulevard, Neptune, NJ, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
