Of course I have to be a little skeptical of their methodology when I see Sea Girt and Deal anywhere near this list, but obviously in Belmar’s case and in Lake Como’s case the numbers are heavily driven by fights among drunken people.  I don’t feel unsafe in Belmar…my previous post notwithstanding…because I don’t hang around with drunken people.  But arresting and prosecuting these people places a very large burden on our police, our first-aid and our courts.  Add to that the expense of the occasional police brutality lawsuits and it’s definitely not good.  It will become more not good with the acquisition of Lake Como’s problems, effective May 11, 2016.

Council Meeting Of May 3, 2016

Jumping The Gun

Not that the uh……”streamlined” conflict of interest law, 2016-01, was ever legally in effect in Belmar, but it appears the mayor accepted $8200 from the Laborers PAC 5 DAYS BEFORE 2016-01 even had its first reading and introduction.

Permit Ranger Comes Up Empty

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 5.43.40 AM

Received this missive yesterday from Belmar’s masked Permit Ranger:

Attached Dave is the very current (today) response from Records-D.E.P. SEE PAGE 3 BOTTOM.
As I wrote you previously, Kim in the NJ DEP Land Use Office had originally photocopied all the original 2010 CAFRA Plans. When we did not receive the copies which we believed were the 2016 amended plans and permit applications, we contacted her. She called last week and told us that she finally read the OPRA request for post Jan. 2016 stuff and told us that there were none.
Just to make sure, Keith at DEP called Toms River and they all confer that as of today, no amended CAFRA Plans- Belmar Marina and Maclearie Park, as well as permit applications have been submitted to NJ. DEP Land Use Dept.

Per the timeline you published:
Maser finished all and billed for revisions and permit applications end of January.
Colleen and Maser promised new plans and permit applications early December 2015 and again at the meeting with the DEP at Borough Hall in March.

The Permit Ranger

Below is the response to the OPRA request sent by P.R. to the DEP.
