Howell is a large town, both in population and land size. Ramtown, mentioned earlier, is an unincorporated section of Howell.
Budget challenges resulted in a request this week that municipal employees forfeit 2 weeks pay. http://www.app.com/article/20090224/NEWS01/902240340/1004/NEWS01
There is a special school election scheduled for March 10th asking the voters to approve a budget increase. Without the approval, there is some talk that 2 of the elementary schools could be forced to close. http://www.app.com/article/20090213/NEWS01/902130327/1004/NEWS01
Every town, everywhere, has itâ€™s challenges. We will always share what we know, and point you to the source for more information to assist you in your search for community and housing information.
We love Howell and many of the surrounding communities. Freehold Raceway Mall is close, and one of the best. Itâ€™s an easy jaunt to Six Flags, the Outlets and more. Anything you want, you can find on Route 9. There are many parks, with Turkey Swamp being one of the most sizeable and notable, including camping and riding. The beach is a reasonable commute, making shore and water activities easy for a day activity.
Come explore Howell and surrounding New Jersey areas.
