SAYREVILLE - Residents of Sayreville are looking forward to the day when the state comes to offer them a buyout.

Several residents attended Gov. Chris Christie's town hall to press him for answers. Officials, however, say it's too early to tell what a buyout plan would mean for towns like Sayreville.

The state wants to spend $250 million on buying out homes, but with thousands potentially eligible, that won't leave a lot for each home.

The buyouts could begin as early as the second week in April.

The Borough of Sayreville will hold a question and answer for residents who are interested in buyouts on April 16 at 5:30 p.m. in the borough chamber.
