Sea Bright Looking Into Sharing DPW Services With Highlands

SEA BRIGHT: The borough's department of public works (DPW) could be on the move in the future.

Sea Bright Councilman Marc Leckstein, who is a member of the borough's DPW's committee, said there have been discussions to share DPW services with Highlands.

"We are still working with Highlands to develop a plan of a possibility of sharing services and moving over a lot of our equipment and storage over there," Leckstein said. "We just do not have the room in Sea Bright, and it's causing a lot of animosity in places where we do store it. A lot of residents are complaining."

The Sea Bright DPW has a small headquarters on New Street, dumpsters behind Sea Bright Borough Hall and a small yard by sewerage plant on River Street.

Leckstein said a new building could be constructed in Highlands to house both boroughs public works departments.

"We're at the point now where they've actually plotted out what they think the layout of the building could be," Leckstein said.

Nothing has been approved by either town and the plan is still in the discussion stage at this point.

Leckstein said he hopes to bring architectural drawings of the proposed building to the next Sea Bright Council workshop meeting on July 16 at 8:30 a.m.
