Oceanport has been without large portions of its municipal building since Hurricane Sandy flooded it with several feet of water in October.
The Oceanport Council is now taking steps to figure out whether the borough will repair its current municipal building or find a new location.
The council passed a resolution during its Aug. 15 meeting that will allow the borough administrator to seek three quotes from experienced architects to complete a study for FEMA to figure out what it would take to either make repairs to the existing structure or find another borough hall.
“There is an action item that I’ll need consent from the council to hire an architectural firm to prepare a document that is required from FEMA and the state of New Jersey," Oceanport Mayor Michael Mahon said. "Specifically, for a technical report that needs to be done as part of this application in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy."
