Storm-Strapped Business Owners Can Speak To Federal Officials Monday in Shrewsbury

If the superstorm and the nor’easter were a one-two punch that left your business on the canvas, your chance to tell federal economic officials how they can help you back up is coming this Monday in Shrewsbury.

Monmouth County freeholders are staging an economic impact roundtable at 6 PM in the county library’s Eastern Branch on Route 35, bringing in staffers of the U.S Economic Development Administration (EDA).

The purpose, says Freeholder Tom Arnone, is to ensure that the EDA “hears directly about what our local businesses have experienced and to move the economic recovery forward.”

County officials hope to expose all aspects of recovery to give federal officials a clear idea of the true cost of rebuilding, and the imperative of restoring the small-business economy that supports a multi-billion-dollar economic engine in New Jersey.

Economic recovery is one of several support functions within FEMA’s National Disaster Recovery Framework for New Jersey. It’s administered through the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration.

Seating is limited, say county officials, who are urging everyone wishing to speak to register beforehand. Send a note to Susan Folta in Monmouth’s Economic Development Department:
