POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant Borough has received two grants to aid in the borough’s cleanup programs and the police department’s Click-It-or-Ticket program. This was announced at the June 12 council meeting.
The Clean Communities Council of New Jersey, in conjunction with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection [NJDEP], distributes money to various municipalities and counties in New Jersey that prove that they are working toward promoting a clean environment.
Each year, the mayor and council files a report with New Jersey Clean Communities, a statewide litter-abatement program created by the passage of the Clean Communities Act in 1986. Here, they request funds to help keep Point Pleasant clean. This year, the borough has received $47,951.
The Point Pleasant Police Department has also received a grant from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration for the Click-It-or-Ticket program in the amount of $7,000.
This money funds the Police Department’s efforts to ensure public safety. “It is a highly publicized law enforcement program throughout the state that gives people added reasons to buckle up,” said Council President Coulson.
