The TOMSA board is the only board in town that is NOT volunteer – the TOMSA board members earn salary, pension credit, and medical benefits.  Per a 2009 state law and Township resolution, new appointees thereafter are not entitled to benefits, just salary.  An exception, however, is that existing board members are “grandfathered in” and keep their benefits upon re-appointment.  THUS, the Township Committee could save taxpayers money simply by NOT re-appointing the board members when their terms expire.  Unfortunately, the Twp Committee continues to re-appoint members as terms expire.

Seat V was vacated in early 2011 by Clifford Raisch, who left to join the board of the Monmouth County Improvement Authority (MCIA).  New appointee Anthony DeMarco is not entitled to health benefits or pension credit.  All other board members are currently receiving those benefits.

Note that as of February 2013, Tom Stokes is on the TOMSA board 25 years and James Hinckley is on the TOMSA board 24 years.  Mr. Stokes owns a home in and resides there at least 6 months out of the year. 

Veterans Affairs Committee

The Veteran’s Affairs Committee, established in 2011, is responsible for reporting the concerns of veterans to the governing body, providing information on local state and federal veteran’s programs and making recommendations on how to best meet the needs of veterans.

The board consists of 5 members. At least three of the members will always be veterans of the armed forces. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month at at Town Hall, . Call 732-615-2015 for more information.
