    Scott beamed the answers to the parking meter kiosks. Aerial footage available from POKEMAN PLAZA, Ocean Avenue. Looks like an abandoned lot that cattle trampled. This weekend there’s entertainment.

    Abhorrent. Too bad the Prosecutor’s Office doesn’t read this blog. Everyone in and about Belmar are waiting for any Law Enforcement entity or person to investigate this latest shakedown.

    Hi Dave, House looks beautiful. Much Happiness to you and your family. Was wondering if you might have any information regarding the recent changes in the water/sewer bill for people in Belmar. We own a two family home, and they are charging us 100.00 more per quarter than the actual usage,and what action can be taken if any?
    thanks for any info..

    Thank You Eugene R Creamer. Just very disappointed with charging taxpayers extra fees on services when my house is owner occupied. When its should be taxed to the restaurants and bars that use an exorbitant amount of water.Taxpayers should only pay for what we use.

    There are two FB groups for Belmar. This one in particular has an interesting post.

    ‘Interesting that only certain belmar officials receive an “as is” slip rate at the marina. I served on both the harbor commission and the council. Marina rates are only be set by resolution of council. There is no such thing as an “as is” rate for 2020. This rate was authorized in 2019 but not renewed in 2020’

    Maybe they should pony up like everyone else to make up for shortfalls and lack of Resolutions being filed for boat slips at Marina, right folks?

    Lots of familiar names on that “entitled list”. Al Deangelos another Monmouth country prosecutors office guy. The Jost’s.
    Huisman and Poff paid NOTHING for years. Kirschenbaum paid NOTHING for a year or two. In 2018 they started paying these special deal rates because they got caught. Campbey involed up to his eyeballs. All 4 feet of him.

    This info could explain a number of things. Let’s say my name was Chuck and I worked as head of the marina. And I got caught doing something illegal, or inappropriate, ie insurance fraud, for which I should have been fired. But, knowing that I had all this dirt, I was slapped on the wrist and removed from the marina and given another DPW job. If I was Chuck I would file suit against the town. Perhaps the mayor could shed some light on this subject on the next Zoom meeting.
