What isn't opening this Summer of 2013? posted on April 2, 2013
Not to be a downer but just want some clarification. For example, I saw posted on here that Bywater which is only a block from me was closing for good and for sale signs were posted in frontwindow. This WAS true. Now, this past Saturday when I was down I saw drywall going up nd the signs dumped into the window sill of the side window. Are they just using the insurance moneyto fix it up for a sale or did she have a change of heart. It certainly looks like Newbern Realty is shut as signs are down there. And what is happening with the old Subway in Ship Bottom? Drywall also being installed there but nothing happening with the old Sweet Jenny's. We need answers Answer Man! :)

I received very little compensation from insurance for Hurricane Sandy. Fema only gave me an application for a loan since it is a rental property. Does anyone know of any organizations that offer grants for rental property owners?

Flood Info Town Hall Meeting posted on February 13, 2013
There will be an Info Fair on Saturday February 16th from 10a-2p. The Fair will be at the St Marys Community Center, located behind St Marys Church, 100 Bishop Dr in Stafford Twp. FEMA will have several representatives attending to answer our residents and businesses questions.
Residents will first go to the gymnasium where there will be an introduction, instruction portion and an information portion (FEMA). This should last approximately a half hour. After that there will be breakout sessions, in rooms across the hallway, where attendees can go to the different FEMA and township representatives.
If you are around this is a good chance to get some up good info regarding the new regulations.
Insurance rates on renewals are much higher posted on January 22, 2013
Has anyone else gotten their insurance policy renewals? Our homeowner's arrived last week & the rate went from about $1800 per year to over $2200 - coverage is about $350K. I was floored. I asked our insurance agent why such a big increase (we didn't file any claim on our homeowner's policy because of Sandy) & she said that the insurance companies have been given permission to raise their rates, something along that line. I have my policy through Van Dyk with Atlantic States Group.
Our flood insurance policy through Selective also is due. The rate is $1910 for a year with $5K deductible on building & another $5K on contents - the maximum deductible you can buy. This, too, is hundreds more than we paid last year. This is for a basic policy with $250K building coverage, $50K contents coverage. We are in Flood Zone AE with Base Elevation of 9.
I'd really like to hear if anyone else has seen their rates jump hundreds of dollars. Thank you for your time.

LBT: new regulations for storm damage elec repair? posted on January 8, 2013
Have an old house in LBT that had flood damage to the first floor. Ripped up flooring, threw away soaked furn, etc.. Had damage to drywall and several elec sockets were under water. Drywall guy tells me electrician must reinspect all outlets, which I understand. Electrician says new LBT rule that all houses damaged by storm must completely update elec in whole house to NEC 2008 conditions. And submits a bill for almost 4 grand. Any truth to this new regulation other LBT residents or is electrician trying to pull one over on me? PS 5 electric outlets on first floor were the only ones that saw water damage. Second floor to house totally intact.

Storm trash remnants posted on December 30, 2012
I know this is a busy time of year but those of you who haven't cleaned up the remaining trash in your yard need to do it. In Ship Bottom most of the big stuff has been picked up. But the little stuff remains which you need to rake/pick up. It's blowing into the streets and others' yards. It was also floating around in this week's flood. Please, please clean up the little stuff that remains. I think a lot of non-resident homeowners think that everything is cleaned up but that is not the case.

I see a posting on NJNG that Ship Bottom will be completely restored and parts of Beach Haven restored by the end of the day tomorrow, 11/2. They also make mention of a work schedule as to when specific areas will be restored. I cannot find this schedule. Does anyone know where and how this schedule can be obtained?

Silt posted on November 11, 2012
I have a raised ranch with a garage and enclosed storage area undernear. Due to the flooding, the concrete pad has a layer of silt that cannot be swep away. Any ideas of how to remove it. A a power washer would be a problem in the enclosed area as there is no drainage.
