More than 100 job-seekers attended Monmouth County Park System’s (MCPS) March 13 job fair at the Fort Monmouth Recreational Center in Tinton Falls. The four-hour event showcased three- to nine-month job opportunities, including camp counselors, lifeguards, retail clerks and more.
Located just off of Hope Road in Tinton Falls, the Fort Monmouth Recreation Center, MCPS’s first-ever indoor facility, is currently operated by the County through a sublease from FMERA. Last month, the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) Board approved entrance into a revised Purchase and Sale Agreement (PSA) with the County for the building and adjacent swimming pool to finalize the transfer of the property to the County. Also in February, the Board approved a Purchase and Sale Agreement & Redevelopment Agreement (PSARA) with Monmouth County for the sale and redevelopment of Parcel F-3 in the Tinton Falls Reuse Area, adjacent to the Recreation Center.
“As part of its recreation initiatives, Monmouth County has operated the Fort Monmouth Recreation Center, which is adjacent to Parcel F-3, since 2013,” FMERA Deputy Director Dave Nuse said. “Reinforcing the ‘play’ part of a ‘live-work-play’ element on Fort Monmouth, the County offers myriad programs for all ages, from children to seniors.”
