MIDDLETOWN, NJ - Have Sandy recovery questions? Mayor Gerard P. Scharfenberger urges Sandy-affected residents and businesses owners to visit the Tonya Keller Community Center on Wednesday, October 16 from 3pm to 7pm and meet with state officials. The center is located at 50 Bray Avenue in North Middletown.

State representatives from the following agencies are scheduled to attend:

  • the Governor’s Office of Constituent Relations;
  • the Department of Community Affairs (DCA);
  • the Economic Development Authority (EDA);
  • the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP);
  • the Department of Banking and Insurance (DOBI);
  • the Department of Treasury;
  • the Business Action Center (BAC) at the Department of State;
  • the Department of Human Services (DHS);
  • and the Department of Children and Families (DCF).

Representatives from these agencies will be on hand in Middletown to meet with affected residents and answer questions on a variety of topics including homeowner and rental program status updates and business grant and loan status updates. Homeowners and business owners interested in attending can expedite the process by bringing relevant documentation related to the issue they are facing.

At this point, it is unlikely that federal representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will be in attendance due to the government shutdown.
