  1. Just for everyone’s information, Covid is spreading now more than ever, and more people have unfortunately passed away since Biden has taken office!!!

    But I guess if the president is a Democrat and the governor is a Democrat and he is running for reelection, EVERYTHING IS OK!!!

  2. So this means that the township manager,Mayor and all the secretaries are coming back too to the building after 18 months? Or they still going to be working from home?

  3. To Propolice:The police has done a wonderful job but they’re not the only government employees in Lakewood that have worked through the pandemic without staying home. How about DPW,Fire department and EMS?

  4. o boy this is so scary! bunch of fools, if Lowes, Walmart, every other store, business, amusement park etc have been open all this time, what took these foolish people so long to open?

  5. @ Perplexed:it’s called know how to beat the system. Do you actually believe that they’re really working normal 9 to 5 hours? Who’s going to track them? Cause none of them are wearing a GPS Monday to Friday during those hours. My sister used to work from home for a few months during the peak of the pandemic and sometimes when I called her and she was supposed to be working guess what? She was at Walmart or doing other things while getting paid and that’s exactly what’s happening here.

  6. its amazing how we let our elected public servants get away with this nonsense, you dont want to come into work, because the world is so scary as you peak out from under your bed, that fine, your fired we will replace you tomorrow with realistic down to earth normal people, not sure why they get away with this
