SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — Spring Lake Heights made sure to prepare for the month’s events on Monday Oct. 2, when a quick meeting was highlighted by resolutions passed to ensure the borough’s events run smoothly.
The board swiftly passed a total of three measures — two with ongoing plans for alcohol-involved festivities in the borough and one for Halloween.
Two resolutions were unanimously passed to allow alcohol permits for events taking place in the borough. Octoberfest, an event being held by the Spring Lake Heights Independent Fire Co. 1 as well as Belmar Volunteer Hook & Ladder, is set to take place at the Spring Lake Heights Firehouse at 700 Sixth Ave. Aside from regular alcohol serving, the permit is required for events such as a biergarten and stein hoisting.
“It’s an awesome way to get the residents out and meet everybody,” said Fire Chief Joseph Tompey. “It’s our third consecutive year running this, so it’s bound to be a good one.” Other activities taking place at the festival include auctions, giveaways and a bucket brigade event.
A resolution was also passed for the Second Chance NJ Benefit Dinner at the Spring Lake Manor on Nov. 2, as part of Jersey Shore Restaurant Week. The eighth annual dinner is from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and all benefits are dedicated to the nonprofit organization, Second Chance NJ, whose purpose is “to train and place previously incarcerated people in the hospitality industry,” according to its website.
