Ocean County still needs you on Good Luck Point in Bayville. We are sinking in trash and while I had asked you to come in December, you were enthusiastic but said the Mayor would have to approve. I never heard back from you and am begging you good people to consider adding us to the list of areas that need serious attention.

We are in dire need of help in Glen Cove. Homes are abandoned. Debris on the streets. We didn't live in a mansion, just a ranch, but it was our home for 15 years. It breaks my heart when I pull into the driveway. Garden beds and trees, all dead. The grass looks yellow. The water in our lagoon is a funky grey color. Nothing will ever be the same.

Ok - how do we organize a group of volunteers to help clean up BT?
