Garruzzo, Nolan reelected to council


    BRIELLE — Republican incumbents Paul Nolan and Frank Garruzzo were reelected to the borough council Tuesday night.

    “I want to thank the residents of Brielle to let me continue on my journey and to help the community become better,” Mr. Garruzzo told The Coast Star. “Our main focus is always going to be on maintaining our current tax levels, and we have some infrastructure issues we want to address.” 

    Mr. Nolan, 56, has served on the council since 2004. He is the chairman of the public resources committee, and also serves as liaison to Brielle Recreation, the Brielle Library and the Brielle Environmental Commission. 

    Mr. Nolan focuses his attention on Brielle’s infrastructure and engineering, including the new water tank that was built on Union Avenue, as well as the water tank being built on Old Bridge Road currently.
