The final general meeting of the Barnegat Light Taxpayers Association for 2017 is Saturday, Sept. 16, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the first aid squad building on 10th Street. Speakers will cover a variety of topics.

Dorothy Mathis, Barnegat Light postmaster, will offer a message for snowbirds. Paul Ashley, chief warrant officer of the Barnegat Light Coast Guard Station, will talk about the history and relevance of the Coast Guard stationed in the town. Karen Larson, president of the Barnegat Light Historical Society, will speak on the organization that welcomes new members.

As always, a question and answer period by Barnegat Light Mayor Kirk Larson will take inquiries from property owners on topics of interest.

The taxpayers association will elect trustees and officers for the coming year, as part of the regular business portion of the meeting.

Community Police Officer Megan Keller of the Long Beach Township Police Department will have the department’s medicine drop box available to receive unused or expired medicine.

The website has an informational post about the Sept. 26 LBI Consolidated School District referendum.

“We would also like to let you know that we have posted a mail-in ballot for the September special election (obtained from the OC Elections Board) on our web site, along with updated information covering the LBI School Referendum,” said the announcement of the September meeting. Previous taxpayer meetings have hosted speakers on the topic.

“Lastly, at the meeting we will announce BLTA plans to donate a portion of BLTA treasury funds to aid the victims in their recovery from the devastations of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. If you would like to join us in donating, please bring your checkbook to the September 16 meeting,” added the meeting notice from Association President John Tennyson.  —M.S.
