Belmar Bribe Hotel Update

The Belmar Beach Hotel, the location of an attempted bribe of the Belmar fire marshal, is on the state’s foreclosure sale schedule despite having been sold last October to 402-404 15th Ave, LLC, PO Box 3, Rutherford for $1.

Gibbons is handling Loko and the Harmon brothers.


I guess this is connected to the Michael Druz lawsuit.


Susko, DeSanctis and Metra missteps still costing us.  One problem is the mayor just refuses to give up and appeals all the lawsuits he loses.


I think this appeal is on the civil rights violations for the rejected petition against the changes to the conflict of interest laws.
