Five inmates from the Monmouth County Correctional Institution spent the week of April 7 in Sea Bright cleaning storm drains, planting grass and preparing the beachfront for the summer season.
The cleanup was conducted through the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office Inmate Labor Program which offers assistance to municipalities. Offenders incarcerated for minor offenses with records of good behavior are eligible participate in work projects as an alternative to spending their time in jail.
“We are grateful to have the Inmate Labor Program back here in Sea Bright,” said Mayor Dina Long. “This program is a great service in assisting us with cleanup and recovery efforts as we prepare for the summer season.”
