Fort Housing Will Use Lottery System
The governor announced that utilities should be restored to the former military base by the end of this week.
A lottery system will be used to determine which New Jersey residents displaced by Superstorm Sandy will be able to find temporary shelter at Fort Monmouth, Gov. Chris Christie announced Tuesday.
Storm evacuees might be moving into the former military base, which closed last year, as early as next week following the restoration of all utility service by the end of this week, according to NJ.com.
