Holmdel Township has been involved in litigation with New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) over a proposal to build a regulator station along Holmdel Road in the southern part of the Township. The initial decision of the Administrative Law Judge was issued this past week, and the ruling was in favor of NJNG’s petition to locate a regulator station in Holmdel.
It is important to make the distinction that this is an initial decision, not a final decision. The judge’s decision has been sent to the Board of Public Utilities (BPU) for review and they will make a final decision in the matter.
Holmdel Township’s special counsel on this matter will be defending the Township before the BPU and is prepared to file briefs, if necessary, to continue the litigation.
The Township Committee is committed to pursuing every possible legal avenue to prevent this regulator station from being built in Holmdel.
