FREEHOLD – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders wishes everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend, and reminds residents that most county offices will be closed on Monday, July 4 in observance of the holiday. All county parks and golf courses will remain open.
“As our celebration of American independence and freedom takes place with friends and family at picnics, barbecues and fireworks displays, we should remember the brave acts and sacrifices that made this all possible,” Freeholder Director Robert D.
