    Just think about all the money the bars bring in (ie) real estate taxes. Probably not enough to offset the spending in police costs. Now the quality of life issue? Somebody please put a dollar on that. If you can.

    Good thing we can raid the beach revenue for the police salaries. The police payroll must be off the wall to keep Belmar and Lake Como under control.

    Property taxes are due regardless of the tenancy or ownership etc. The outgo (cost) associated withe the ownership of a property to the borough is what is important, i.e., how much community resources are costing the borough? emphasis on small, one horse BOROUGH.

    You figure it out.

    #4 If there weren’t bars there could be houses/condos/townhomes. Get rid of all these damn bars.

    Speaking of Belmar problems… thanks to jerky matt…. The Marina parking has been jammed for the fishing boats with the nice weather. The traffic pattern at the light is ridiculous for a busy place. Can’t wait to see what nightmares will develop when the unsightly food establishment opens for business. Bamboozled.

    #7 – The sheer number of calls is the least of it – look at the behavior that triggers the calls to D’Jais – frightening! Imagine how many calls there’d be if there was no cop stationed outside to handle the “minor” stuff.

    Wow, so let me get this straight, Between a two hour period on a Tuesday “Beat the Clock” night at Bar A, you have 8 (EIGHT) Belmar Officers detailed there to deal with issues. And we the people of Belmar are paying for this BS. God help you if you need an Officer at your home for a family emergency. Get in line…. behind all of the liquor establishment, Lake Como, businesses. Great deal Matt. Vote them all out, nice or not. McGovernless and Blackie are not looking out for your best interests.

    Gutless wonders don’t see anything wrong with providing public security services for these “CASH BUSINESSES”. “PENSIONS for babysitting bar patrons” is on your dimes. No amount of fine revenue covers the imbalances and out of pocket taxes borne by the residents.

    Don’t forget the revenue that comes into court for each of these “violations” is way above the cost for each officer present. It’s a win for the town. That’s why they turn a blind eye. It’s a revenue source.

    #19 I believe the State gets a cut, the municipality does not receive 100%. Mr. Pringle would have the answer.

    #19 So do you know the amount of revenue generated from the violations? If so then present a financial analysis of revenue vs costs. Please include the costs of the judge, court reporters, cop cars etc

    One way of dealing with these young men who carry on while they’re drunk is to make the penalties punitive. I don’t mean whipping them or anything. But making them perform work for the town. Such work as picking up litter, raking leaves, shoveling snow, weeding, etc. This will work I think. Any work for most of our young men is seen as demeaning. So they would reform themselves rather than be seen doing what they think of as demeaning work. After all, as we all know, they’re all CEO material of Multi-National Corporations.
