A community works to create a garden

With all plots assigned, the Shrewsbury Community Garden is flourishing for a third year in a row.

The Shrewsbury Public Works Department Joins Forces with its Community to bring a garden to life

It is with great pleasure and pride that the nationally distributed “PUBLIC WORKS” magazine, July 2014, has acclaimed Shrewsbury’s DPW, “Department of the Month”.  In a full page article with photography, DPW is recognized for its work on behalf of the Shrewsbury Community Garden acknowledging “their role in advising on accessibility issues; traffic flow; and sun, wind, and drainage conditions” along with the site construction.


Congratulations to all who have contributed to the success of the Shrewsbury Community Garden. To read the online article click here

Tick Identification and Testing Services

The Monmouth County Mosquito Commission (MCMEC) currently provides the service of Tick Identification and Testing for the residents of Monmouth County.  The Tick Identification and Testing service serves as a "first alert" for people receiving a tick-bite.  Currently, ticks must be submitted in person at the MCMEC facility located in Tinton Falls.  Ticks can be tested for the causative agent of Lyme disease utilizing a DNA based technique known as polymerase chain reaction (PCR).  The identification of the tick is free but there is a $25.00 dollar fee to cover the cost of testing the tick for the Lyme disease causing organism.

Additional information on the Tick Identification and Testing service can be found on county website at  If you would like a brochure to distribute regarding ticks, Lyme disease, and other tick-borne diseases please request via email at, and they will be happy to provide them.

Reporting An Outage


Do not call the Police Department, if your power goes out.

Dial toll-free 1-888-544-4877 to reach JCP&L.  When you call, your house phone number will automatically identify your account and the address of the outage and JCP&L’s automated system will register your outage.  If you’re calling from a number not listed on your account, JCP&L’s automated system may ask for your account number or the phone number at the location of the outage. 


When your call comes into the automated outage reporting line, your address goes into a computer program that sort the outage calls by location and evaluates the pattern of reported outages to determine the location of the trouble.  JCP&L dispatchers analyze this information to determine where to send service crews.


If your home is the only one without power, check your circuit breakers or fuses in your homes’ electric service panel.  If no breaker is tripped or no fuse is blown, call JCP&L automated outage reporting line.  The problem may be in the connection with JCP&L wires and your home.

The Borough of Shrewsbury would like to remind all residents that (according to Borough Ordinance Chapter 58) NO animals are allowed in Borough Parks, passive and active.  Lest we forget, our children play in our parks.
