Barnegat  begins it's annual 'Click it or Ticket' campaign Monday.  From May 23rd until June 5th Barnegat Police are beefing up patrols and instituting check points, all to educate the public about the importance of wearing seat belts. This is an annual initiative, funded in part by the New Jersey Division of Highway Safety. Last year, 406 state and local police departments throughout New Jersey participated in the program.  They handed out more than 35,000 tickets for failing to wear seat belts. Each ticket results in a $46 fine.   Remember New Jersey law requires everyone in the car, even back seat passengers, to be buckled up.

When you see new roads and schools being built, it's a sign that the community is set for a growth spurt. Investing in a growing community can be very profitable.

What happens when a community comes together?  A much loved program is saved! Since June, 2010 continuation of the Barnegat Police Department's K-9 unit was up in the air.  The Barnegat Officer and his dog that made up the K-9 unit had retired.  Some members of the public questioned the expenditure of tax dollars to continue the program and urged Barnegat to use the Ocean County K-9 unit, located 20 miles away in Toms River. Step in Police Benevolent Association Local 296.  The PBA waived an 8 per cent stipend for the K-9 officer and the union agreed to buy and house the dog.  That agreement is worth about $10,000, according to Barnegat officials. Then came donations from Barnegat residents and businesses totaling about $3,000. The final piece of the funding puzzle came from the Whiting...

Four Seasons at Mirage opened in 1998 and was completed in 2007. The community is made up of approximately 1,200 single family style homes priced from the low $200’s to the mid $400’s.
