DPW Readying For Temporary Move Into Fort Monmouth Building

OCEANPORT: The municipal Department of Public Works will have a temporary home in a former Fort Monmouth building.

Buildings 917 and 916 will be temporarily used for more borough offices, said Borough Administrator John Bennett.

The department of public works will use Building 917 for its headquarters, and a storage facility for its yard.

Nearby is Building 916, which will be used by the Oceanport office of emergency management.

Because of the buildings' schematics, both would be opened at the same time, Bennett said.

"They share a lot of utilities. They have the same water and heating systems," Bennett said. "As one comes on, they both do."

He said they should be operational in the coming weeks. First, a generator will be installed between the buildings.

"We'll have one generator operating there serving both," said the borough administrator.

Bennett said the Oceanport Police have basically moved in to its new home, the old fort firehouse also in Fort Monmouth, in its Historic District.

In the two years after Hurricane Sandy, the police and most other borough municipal offices have been displaced into temporary homes. The police were utilizing trailers behind borough hall.
