Borough of Manasquan, New Jersey

Happy Labor Day Message from the Council President


Happy Labor Day everyone, unfortunately it looks like it's going to be a wet and windy one with higher than usual tide surges.  At this time borough officials are closely monitoring the warnings from Tropical Storm Hermine and working with our emergency management staff and utility companies to ensure we are prepared.  

We are expecting prolonged periods of at least moderate coastal flooding beginning Sunday morning and continuing through Tuesday evening.  Due to the possibility of high winds, we ask that all residents secure any loose objects outside their homes. We recommend that boats are secured for the forecasted tropical storm conditions.  Do not park in flood prone areas.  Additional parking is available in the municipal lots located at North Main Street, South Street, and Squan Plaza.  It is not recommended to park in the Borough Parking Lots east of the railroad tracks as they are prone to flooding. Do not park at the Municipal Building or Life Saving Station as they are used for emergency personnel only.  Please plan accordingly.

In addition, in the event of a power outage JCP&L encourages each customer affected to report the outage to 1-888-LIGHTSS, this ensures that they can quickly pinpoint the source of the outage.  However, please keep in mind that for safety reasons lineman cannot work on overhead lines in wind speeds in excess of 40 mph.  

As of now the regularly scheduled garbage pickup on Monday will take place but we ask that residents do not put out garbage cans until Monday morning. 
Please do not call the police department unless it is an emergency.

For updated information the borough will utilize the Emergency Notification System, please sign up on the borough's webpage at to receive these important alerts.  Please follow Manasquan on Facebook and tune to 1620 am for the most up to date information.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and stay safe.

Council President

Owen McCarthy
