The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners and the Monmouth County Historical Commission have announced that Allentown has been granted $4,925 for the repainting of the exterior of the municipal annex on Church Street.
Allentown officials said the grant is conditional, pending the completion of the 2021 county budget process and the allocation of funds for the stated purpose. Should insufficient funds be appropriated to support this level of funding, all grants will be reduced proportionally.
Jan Meerwarth, chairwoman of the Allentown Historic Preservation Review Commission, completed the grant application, according to borough officials.
The Allentown Senior Committee is actively recruiting new members for 2021. Individuals who are interested in helping senior citizens in the community are asked to consider volunteering. To get started, interested individuals may fill out a Citizen Leadership Form and return it to Municipal Clerk Laurie A. Roth. Responses may be emailed, mailed, faxed or dropped off in the mail slot at Borough Hall.
