  • Keep it dry
  • Keep it ventilated
  • Keep it pest free
  • Keep it safe
  • Keep it contaminant free
  • Keep it maintained.

Each attendee will receive a 'Healthy Home Tool Kit' for participating in the program.  To ensure you receive a tool kit, you must register for the class.  To register you can call the Monmouth County Health Department at 732-431-7456 or see a complete schedule of dates, times & locations at the Health Department Calendar of Events.  

Don't wait too long, though, because classes are starting very soon!

Golf is in Full Swing in Marlboro NJ

It's golfing weather!  All this warm air and sunshine makes us long for the courses.

We have a very beautiful golf course right here in Marlboro.  

The Bella Vista Country Club offers various club memberships that are appealing to even the casual golfer. They have an 18-hole, par 70 course, a great restaurant, grill lounge and a pro shop that provides golf instruction by two PGA golf pros.  They also host golf outings and a full venue of weddings and events.

There are also plenty of really good courses within a few miles of Marlboro.  Check them out on Golf Link, where you can learn everything you want to know about each of the courses.

Happy Spring!

April is Fair Housing Month - Working to Stop Discrimination

This month marks the 47th anniversary of the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act, and HUD is launching an educational campaign to help people recognize and combat housing discrimination.

This quote from HUD Secretary Julián Castro sums it all up. "At the core of everything we do to improve housing opportunities is a firm belief that no family should ever be denied the opportunity to own or rent a home because of what they look like, where they come from, how they get around, how they speak, who they love and other circumstances of life. HUD’s fair housing efforts level the playing field so that folks have a solid foundation upon which they can achieve their dreams and build for the future."

What to do if you believe your rights, or the rights of others, are being violated?  Learn more on HUD's website.
