“There are many residents who are understandably concerned about moving their boats in and out of our marinas however, our primary responsibility remains the safety of the general public and assisting the towns with cleanup and recovery efforts,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the County’s Department of Public Works and Engineering. “We are also working closely with the Coast Guard and local police departments to ensure that mariners are able to safely and responsibly retrieve their boats.”
