Meanwhile over in Spring Lake they are having the opposite problem:

I can understand people don’t want public toilets near their homes, but if Spring Lake is going to charge for beach badges they have to provide visitors adequate toilet facilities.

Better Come Up With A New Reason

Last month in a WOBM story:

Doherty said his decision to seek county office was prompted by last year’s tax hike. It was the first time in five years the Freeholder Board raised taxes.

“We’ve had no property tax increase in Belmar since I’ve been the Mayor and I saw last year how the Monmouth County Freeholders increased taxes millions of dollars,” Doherty said. He added he would put an end to those extreme tax increases.

I don’t know if I would call the county tax increase “extreme” but in any case it looks like it’s going to be largely undone:

Hmmm.  I guess now Doherty doesn’t need to run for freeholder and if he doesn’t need to run for freeholder maybe he doesn’t need to screw around with Belmar’s pay to play ordinance.

Not Very Long, If They Can Help It

Belmar Dems want to remind you how low gas prices are:

Perfect time to raise the gas tax!

Of course we all know the motivation for Matt and Maggie to support plowing more of our money into the state Transportation Trust Fund sinkhole, (LIUNA) but I discovered this morning a reason why Borough Administrator Colleen Connolly also might like the idea.

Today’s Christie Sleaze

A commenter noted that the previous story is last year’s news so I have something for him a little fresher.

From 101.5 TODAY:

(Personally, I know that Christie would never, ever do such a thing.)
