Christie Returning to Flood-Ravaged Sayreville for Town Hall

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is making another visit to a Middlesex County town that experienced severe flooding during Superstorm Sandy.

Christie will host a town hall meeting in Sayreville on Thursday afternoon.

It, along with neighboring South River, was targeted by the Christie administration for home buyouts in low-lying neighborhoods after the worst natural disaster in the state’s history.

Repeatedly flooded homes are eligible for the voluntary buyouts. Once sales are finalized, the state razes the homes and returns the land to its natural state to help absorb future floodwaters.

Demolition of homes began last month.

So far, more than 170 homeowners have accepted buyout offers.

The state is using $300 million in federal storm recovery aid to fund the program.
