Long Branch — Monmouth County Clerk Christine Hanlon, Surrogate Rosemarie Peters and Sheriff Shaun Golden are teaming up to deliver county services and programs directly into the community. The “Mobile County Connection” will be coming to the City of Long Branch on Monday, May 23. The event will take place at the Long Branch Free Public Library, 328 Broadway, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
“We are proud to be unveiling such an important outreach program,” said Hanlon. “It is the first of its kind in Monmouth County and features mobile government services in an effort to connect people with government in their communities.”
The Mobile County Connection is housed in a large mobile command center and was rolled out for the first time last summer. The vehicle is stocked with a wide selection of printed information about the programs and services available to them in county government. Staff will be on site to assist the public.
Sheriff Shaun Golden states that “the Mobile County Connection enhances our continuing efforts to serve the public’s needs in a timely and convenient fashion.” Rosemarie Peters, Monmouth County Surrogate, says “ Having access to county government services on wheels allows us to better serve the public and we look forward to meeting the residents who will utilize these services.”
From the County Clerk’s Office, election and voter information will be available, and assistance will be provided for those wishing to apply for or renew a passport, take passport photos or obtain a veterans’ or County ID.
The Sheriff’s Office will offer Youth and Ident-Adult identification cards and instruction on the proper installation of child safety seats and safe cargo guidelines.
The Monmouth County’s Surrogate’s Office will provide information on probate and wills, and guardianship and adoption services.
Passport services require that specific identification be provided. Free notary services will be available during the event and during regular library business hours. Please call the library for more information.
