i cannot believe how incredibly ineffective the mayor and the town council is.. first, under mayor wilson's watch the post office was let go. after the boro lost the post office building, a trailer was installed.. now there is talk of shutting down the post office altogether.. this means that the residents will have to travel outside the city in order to use the postoffice.. freehold is the county seat of one of the richest counties in the state, and we have no postoffice..on top of that, the borough wants to build a parking garage, which will benefit just a limited number of businesses and eliminate a lot of parking areas.. i don't know where their priorities are, certainly not for the benefit of we taxpaying residents..the sooner the mayor and the council members are replaced the better off this city will be

On Feb. 10, the Township Committee in Freehold Township passed a resolution supporting the continued operation of Freehold Borough's postal facility.
"I think it's unfair," Deputy Freehold Township Mayor Anthony Ammiano said at the Township Committee's meeting Tuesday.
The Freehold Township Committee already has passed a resolution supporting the continuation of the borough post office. The Borough Council PLANS to pass its own resolution, Borough Administrator Joseph Bellina said.
Richard Gatto, chief executive officer of the Freehold Center Partnership which represents more than 400 businesses and property owners in Freehold also has sent a strongly worded letter to the postmaster general asking for immediate intervention in the matter.
Why did the Borough Council waited till Feb. 17 to pass a resolution supporting the continuation of the Freehold Borough postal facility?
Clearly the Freehold Township leadership has taken the lead on a Freehold Borough problem.

This is easy. The council meetings between the Twp and the Boro are at different times. When the story broke the Boro already had their meeting.

I prefer my Miller well-done.

One would hope that the NAPUS contingent is aware of any closing.
