Manalapan Township Photo Contest
The Manalapan Arts Council and Mayor Susan Cohen are pleased to announce the holding of its 5th annual photo contest. The 2013 theme is “Making Memories”. The Contest will be looking for pictures of any event, happening, trip, reunion, gathering or just a special moment in time that for the photographer means something special. Each year’s contest has been very successful as over 200 photos have been submitted in the first 4 years.
“We encourage all Manalapan residents to consider submitting a photo and a short caption that describes the memory. I enjoy watching the Judges work when they are trying to pick out category winners as the pictures are always so good.” said Mayor Susan Cohen. “I am appreciative of the Manalapan Arts Council assuming the stewardship of the contest again this year and want to personally thank its leadership and in particular Barbara Miller for agreeing to co-chair the project. I still look at the photos from the previous contests which are displayed in our Town Hall Court Room and on-line and am so impressed with the talents of this community.”
The contest is open to all Manalapan residents. Township residents can only enter one photo. Photographs must include a brief description (25 words or less) of the photo. Awards will be given in the following categories: <12 years old, 12-17 years of age and adult (18 years of age and over). All photos will be on display at the Manalapan Day community event on June 15, 2013 where a special “Peoples Choice” award will be given to the photograph that garners the most votes that day from the visiting and judging public.
Photographs must be received by 4:30 p.m. on May 10, 2013. Photographs can be submitted by email to email@example.com (file must be less than 2mb) or dropped off at the Manalapan Township Health Department (photographic prints must not be larger than 5” x 7”). The full set of rules and the submission form are available online at the Township website – www.mtnj.org – or at the Manalapan Township Health Department. Please remember a submission form must accompany the photograph. Forms are also available on the Township web site or at the Manalapan Township Health Department.

Tax Bill information
We are pleased to announce that taxes can now be paid on-line via credit/debit card or e-check. Payments can be made without a tax bill at the municipal building.
The extreme weather we endured this winter virtually assures a bumper crop of potholes this spring.
To expedite roadway repairs, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) wants you to know how easy it is to report potholes, without having to call or write a letter. If you spot a pothole on a state roadway or receive a complaint from a resident, help is just a "click" away. Just go to: http://www.nj.gov/transportation
When the NJDOT home page appears, simply click on the Pothole Reporting Link. There you will find easy to follow instructions on how to report a pothole, roadway debris, litter, graffiti and - even animal carcasses. The site also provides links to the New Jersey Turnpike Authority, NJ TRANSIT and county pothole hotlines.
We encourage you and your constituents to take full advantage of this instantly accessible service. You can be the NJDOT's eyes and ears and help us keep our roads safe and clean.
To report potholes on Manalapan roads, please send us an e-mail with the street location of the pothole you would like to report.
Manalapan Registering Persons with Special Needs for Emergency Planning & Response
For Immediate Release
Contact person: Wm. David Richardson, Health Officer
Manalapan Registering Persons with Special Needs for Emergency Planning and Response
Manalapan - The Manalapan Township Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Manalapan MRC-CERT want to urge all residents who have special needs that may make it difficult to get to safety with family or friends or to a public shelter during an emergency to register into a statewide registry. This registry - the NJ Special Needs Registry - will enable emergency responders at the state, county and local level to locate and safely evacuate people who may struggle to do so on their own.
There are several ways to register as follows:
- log onto www.registerready.nj.gov, or
- telephone 2-1-1, toll free, or
contact the Monmouth County Office of Emergency Management or
- the Manalapan Township Health Department for a form, or
look for the Manalapan MRC-CERT booth at the upcoming Manalapan Under the Stars event on June 14 where forms can be acquired or completed on site.
What constitutes a "special need" can be very broad. It can be a permanent condition or temporary condition. Generally, it is a physical or cognitive limitation, a language barrier or a lack of transportation. The information that is provided is respectful of privacy and is only seen by a limited number of persons, all whom share the goal of keeping you and/or your loved ones safe.
The Township OEM and MRC-CERT encourages all individuals and families to develop emergency plans, including safe locations to go to in the event of an emergency as well as the transportation plan to get to these locations. The availability of public shelters will depend on the size and scope of the emergency.
The Manalapan MRC-CERT will have a booth at the Manalapan Under the Stars event on June 14. More information on this project and general preparedness as well as registration forms will be available.
