Ocean County to Spend $1,000,000 on Service Center Improvements


STAFFORD-After just eight years in operation, Ocean County’s Board of Chosen Freeholders have announced they will be spending nearly $1,000,000 in upgrading their Southern Service Center here.

Work is scheduled to begin this spring.

“I am pleased to announce that the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders awarded a contract for this work at our March 7 meeting,” said Ocean County Freeholder Joseph H. Vicari, Chairman of Senior Services. “The changes coming to this facility will provide for a more efficient and convenient senior nutrition program, and when necessary will result in the county having an additional emergency response staging area to be used during storms or other weather events.”

Freeholders said the million dollar renovation project will be completed in 180 days from the start.


The County originally opened the Ocean County Southern Service Center, located at the corner of Routes 9 and 72 in Manahawkin in 2011 to provide residents of the southern portion of the county with the opportunity to access some local senior services programs and the services of the Ocean County Clerk.
