1/4/18: Garbage Collection Cancelled - North Zone (Postponed Until Monday)
Garbage collection in the North Zone has been cancelled due to the winter storm and blizzard warning (postponed until Monday). Residents north of Hwy 35 should remove their garbage and recycling carts from the curb so streets can be plowed today. Please place garbage curbside Sunday night for Monday morning collection. It is understood that the volume of garbage will be heavy on Monday due to collection delays, so additional garbage trucks will be dispatched to Middletown on Monday. Please continue to check the Middletown website for updates.

Community News and Announcements
To the Ideal Beach Residents,
This year has been a very successful year for the Ideal Beach Community Association. We committed to a tough laundry list of items and we delivered. We saw growth in our attendance, community participation, and social media outreach. We raised the money needed to execute the 2017 plan. Yahoo!!!
The walkover at Ideal Beach was finally completed! We continue to be a valuable resource for the township in providing input on construction and improvements at the beach. Being invited to the ribbon cutting ceremony was an honor. In addition, we participated and helped spread the word on the dune plantings that occurred at Ideal Beach and were an intricate part in having the storm access fencing installed. We continue to be a valuable and respected voice to the township in identifying/communicating issues and concerns about the Ideal Beach Community.
The facelift of Roosevelt Park was completed. A place for this community to enjoy! The entire facelift for the park from the labor, plantings, mulch, and maintaining the park was provided by the IBCA. We were able to make this happen through donations and fundraising. We still have some additional work we are planning for in 2018.
On your behalf of the Ideal Beach Community we gave back in numerous ways. We awarded the 1st IBCA scholarship to a graduating high school student from this community. We honored our community volunteers by presenting recognition certificates and a donation to the East Keansburg Fire Department and Middletown Search and Rescue Squad during a well-attended community tree lighting. We threw a community Ice Cream Social at Roosevelt Park. We collected toys for the needy families in this community. We collected an incredible amount of food for St Catherine's food pantry. The IBCA donated clothes to an adopted family from the EK Fire Department. We were able to financially assist a Vietnam War Veteran in our community that was in need.
All this happened due to the hard-working members of the IBCA board and committees. Individuals who volunteer their time. Time that takes them away from their personal lives and their families, all in the name of giving back to the community they love and cherish. "Volunteers are the most important resource community organizations have. The ability of people to work willingly together for the betterment of their community and themselves is a valuable resource."
As we come to a close in 2017, thank you to all the board members who have served these past years and welcome new board members. The tide is ever changing. We are grateful this community has incredible residents willing to pick up the torch and step in to contribute and continue to grow the IBCA.
Thank you to all of you who took the time out of your busy schedules to attend a IBCA meeting, respond on Facebook, post to Instagram, read our emails, visit our website, attend one of our events, donate, or spread the news about the IBCA.
Have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, or to any holiday you celebrate, "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" and a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
See you in 2018! Get ready for what we have in store! We are in this together!
