In today’s Coast Star:

Mayor Matthew Doherty, an adamant supporter of the amended ordinance, was defiant, however.

“It was pretty much a meaningless election because our attorneys have already said that the existing ordinance is unconstitutional and unenforceable,” the mayor said. He said the borough would continue to press that argument in court…………….

………………“We have to follow the legal advice of our attorney’s,” Mayor Doherty said. Based on that advice, he said, the borough will proceed with an appeal of Superior Court Judge Katie A. Gummer’s decision on the ordinance, seeking a ruling on whether the original ordinance is, in fact, unconstitutional.

“We’re appealing her decision seeking a judge to make that determination,” Mayor Doherty said.

In response to Mayor Doherty’s plan to continue to fight the ordinance, Mr. Pringle said, “I think he’s delusional.”

“The appellate division already ruled on the issue whether the constitutionality of it should be addressed now and ruled that the referendum should go forward,” Mr. Pringle said.
