MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Mayor Tony Perry and the Middletown Township Committee recently authorized an agreement with the Monmouth County Board of Health, through the Monmouth County Health Department, for the provision of state-mandated local public health services.
The Township terminated its shared services agreement with the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission No. 1 in May. Through this new agreement with Monmouth County, Middletown will enhance its services while saving nearly $100,000 annually.
“From a financial standpoint, it is in the best interest of our taxpayers to have access to additional healthcare services offered through Monmouth County,” said Mayor Tony Perry. “Middletown will continue to provide all of the same services through our local Health Department, but we will also be able to increase and improve both programming and outreach throughout the County under this new partnership.”
“We are excited to partner with Middletown Township and expand access to healthcare services in the Bayshore region,” said Monmouth County Commissioner Director Thomas Arnone. “Agreements like this help streamline and centralize resources and save the taxpayers money. I want to thank the County Health Department and County Administration for their incredible work on this agreement.”
