Mantoloking Gets Federal Aid for Sandy Cleanup

Hurricane Sandy ravaged Mantoloking receives a $1.75 million federal  grant to help with the demolition, loading, hauling, disposal and monitoring of private property debris removal.

Ocean County Republican Congressman John Runyan tells Brickpatch, “These funds, which focus on debris removal, will ensure that Mantoloking has the resources it needs to be made whole again.”

Mantoloking was one of the hardest hit towns in New Jersey, and now joins a list of several other communities that have received FEMA funding in the wake of the Superstorm.

In Monmouh County, a Neptune based non-profit organization is still pressing for federal relief funds to fix a local boardwalk and its attractions.

The Asbury Park Press reports The Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association is filing with FEMA for a third time after their $1 million proposal was rejected twice.  The federal relief agency is maintaining that public money should not be used to restore private entities like the the Ocean Grove boardwalk.

Raplh Del Campo, Interim Chief Operating Officer for the OGCMA, says FEMA should respond to the appeal by Thanksgiving.  Ocean Grove is one of the only communities at the Jersey Shore that has not received any FEMA funding.

Estimated damage to the boardwalk is around $3 million.
