Brick Municipal Building Closed Today

Air conditioning systems down

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.

He must be referring to Juan and many of the other overpaid "administrators" and, of course, himself.

@forthekids I'm sure they were on a break when you saw them. As far as being hot in school I am sure if it's that hott the teachers would all cry and complain.

They are waiting for the tax rate to be certified by the Ocean County Board of Taxation. The bills will be sent out after that with an extended grace period for payments.

I guess that means that the county is in shock as well over the rate after the April increase. They can't believe it themselves.

It wasn't just the air, there were problems with the computers too. I was there bright & early and watched the girl unable to access her computer.
