Brick's municipal complex is closed Monday due to issues with the building's air conditioning system, officials said.
At 8:30 a.m. Monday, the temperature inside the complex was 88 degrees, said Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis.
The mayor said employees, except for essential personnel, were sent home due to regulations from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration that dictate employees in an office setting be sent home after an interior temperature reaches 85 degrees.
"We're functioning, we're doing everything we need to do, but non-essential employees were sent home," Acropolis said.
Crews are working to get four of six air conditioning units back online, the mayor said.
