One of the items on Toms River's new mayor Maurice "Mo" Hill's list of things to do is to meet face-to-face with township residents to get their view on what's going on in the community.

Hill spoke at the township's reorganization meeting earlier this month discussing his plan to serve the residents of Toms River where his family has resided and attends school.

The Mayor also wants to hear from residents so the town and community can work together more often.

"I want to increase communications throughout he use of social media and institute a 'Meet The Mayor' monthly meeting to hear from the residents both the positive and negative feedback," Hill said.

Beginning this month, Mayor Hill, will hold a series of monthly “Meet the Mayor” events in Town Hall.

These meetings present an opportunity for residents, business owners and other members of the Toms River community to meet Mayor Hill in an informal setting and to talk to the Mayor one-on-one about what the Town is doing well and ideas you might have for service improvement.

"I really look forward to meeting the residents of Toms River and hearing their ideas on how we can move forward as a community," Mayor Hill said.

The meetings are open to the public and no pre-registration is required.

Meetings will be held the third Tuesday of every month from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

All meetings will be held in the L. Manuel Hirshblond Room, 2nd Floor, Town Hall, 33 Washington Street, Toms River, unless otherwise noted.

The first meeting takes place Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Additional dates will be posted on the Town’s website at www.tomsrivertownship.com.
