    They should have sued months ago and not just the town, the council and mayor should be personally sued…. I would also file for a hearing with the state ABC….. Tbere is no reason the lience should not be transferred… I had a similar issue in a town up north…., The bar owners will ultimately win the case but at what cost?????? In my case it was all just political BS…… But I learned a valuable lesson, get all approvals first before sending money on construction…..

    Who says the cart goes before the horse anyway? In this matter, as all good business practices, there should be reliance on ethics, integrity and honesty in government which is paramount. Denial of license transfer 50 feet is actionable.

    Unless you are Chef’s International, beware doing business with the town of Belmar. Apparently planning board approvals, town council approvals (with no objections) and a Redeveloper’s Agreement with the town approving the use means nothing.

    A Redevelopment Agreement is a Contract …. is a Contract …. is a CONTRACT.

    Not being privy to these Redevelopment Agreements …. Belmartians can only speculate our liability.

    Settle out of court. Lease it to Chef’s and get the payback in a few years. Going to loose the court fight. Can’t stand lawsuits. How the hell will my kids sell this property when I die? I’m worried!!!!

    Let the games begin. The generals take the high ground (joke) and the plebs get bloody and wind up paying while the watchers move on to greener pastures. Never truer than Belmar, 2016.

    Can someone explain why the mayor wouldn’t allow the transfer? There has to be a politically motivated reason behind it.

    #7… plain and simple. Chef’s International told Matt that if Salt builds and opens, they (Chef’s) will not pay for and build the new marina building. Stop work order. Denied. Chef’s builds! Go look for yourself.
