Squan adopts land use, fees, administrative ordinances


MANASQUAN — The borough council adopted four ordinances at the Monday, Dec. 21 mayor and council meeting regarding land use, administration and fees.

All four ordinances, introduced at the Dec. 5 meeting, were adopted following second readings and public hearings in which no members of the public spoke.

The first measure was Ordinance No. 2328-20 amending and supplementing chapters 16 and 31 of the borough’s code to set fees for appealing the zoning officer’s decision.


According to Borough Attorney Mark Kitrick, the land-use ordinance was reviewed and approved by the planning board with no proposed changes before being sent back to the council.

Also adopted was Ordinance No. 2329-20 amending and supplementing the administration chapter of the borough’s code regarding the council’s standing committees. 

The committees, which each include three members of council, are: administration and finance, beach and recreation, code and land use, public safety and traffic, and public works and construction. Members of each committee will be appointed at the January reorganization meeting.

Mayor Ed Donovan said the ordinance is a bookkeeping measure to “make everything run more efficiently.”
