MANALAPAN – Town Commissions won’t fund efforts to rid neighborhoods of iguanas, but are compiling a list of licensed contractors residents can call to perform removal services.
An annual town contract would cost $12,000 to $13,000 and would necessitate giving the contractor access to all Manalapan properties, according to Town Manager Gregory Dunham. But he questioned using town funds for iguana eradication.
Individual calls for iguana control can run about $250 to $325, Dunham said, after taking calls and letters from interested contractors. Mayor Tom Gerrard asked Dunham to bring a list of acceptable contractors to the next commission meeting.
