The complete announcement from Ducey appears below:
Mayor John G. Ducey is proud to announce that his first Mayor In Night event will be held on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at 6pm at the Brick Township Municipal Building. Citizens will have the opportunity to meet Mayor Ducey and discuss Township matters. Department and division heads from the Township will also be on hand to provide assistance to citizens. The event is open to all residents of Brick Township.
“Many residents are not able to come to town hall during working hours due to their jobs or other commitments. These evening sessions have been created to give these people and any other citizen the chance to meet me and township officials and share their thoughts and concerns with us,” said Mayor Ducey. “I am looking forward to meeting the people of Brick Township and working with them.”
Mayor Ducey has made government accessibility a key platform of his administration. He will be holding Mayor In and Mayor Out events throughout the year. Mayor In events will be hosted at the Municipal Building. Mayor Out events will be held at various locations in the community.
The Mayor In and Mayor Out events are part of Mayor Ducey’s 100 Day Plan for Brick Township. The overall goals of the plan are to improve quality of life and to make Brick a better, more affordable place to live. The plan will help cut costs, improve services, increase revenues, advance economic development and address public health, safety and environmental concerns. The full plan, as well as updates on progress being made, has been made available on the Mayor’s page on the township website,www.bricktownship.net
