Complete (But Not Completed) Ap And Payment

You’ve seen this page already.

At least they have insurance (unlike the Mayor’s Ball.)

There’s no page 2 here, but compared to other applications there doesn’t appear to be anything missing.  It looks like they might have been switching around the page numbers.  Other applications had out of sequence page numbers too.


Review and approval never filled out.

Paid in full in advance. 17 events @ $1500 each.

Single application fee.

    Going by this weeks Coast Star and the story of the seniors using the church , one can easily assume that this was the plan all along. Also in the paper is Claire’s letter to the editor thanking Chris Brandel for his generosity would be nice if this group could use the Taylor as everyone in town was led to believe. One has to wonder how this is going to look when the town has the appeal on the funding of Taylor.

    Too bad the Coast Star didn’t do research to include in their article offering the Church as a great gain for Belmar seniors. Maybe the ad revenue makes them think differently about news items.

    #7 – The seniors were lied to about the uses of a new Taylor Pavilion for their YES vote and then they are offered the church as their own Senior Center. All of this at an additional cost to the Belmar taxpayers. We are all sheep.

    Doherty made a big mistake crossing the Women’s Club members by hailing their meetings in the TAYLOR.

    Caterers can’t sell liquor or advertise liquor as they do not have a Concessionaire Permit. You can not move a commercial liquor license to public property even for one day.The family renting the space can bring booze, but the caterer can not be involved in the transaction.

    Taylor is a public space, there are strict liquor laws for selling booze on govt grounds,at non charity events.

    State Annual Permit also known as Concessionaire Permit – Plenary Retail Consumption License, where the
    license will be located on State or Government property.

    Marina Grill invested millions of dollars to get one of these licenses in Belmar.

It might be a good idea to get the elected officials on the record. Does anyone know what slips are supposed to be left open for transit ? That is how a lot of this was funded , one would imagine this was tied to the loan/ bond . I believe in theory it would work like green acres money. Something to think about .

    If the town has the seafood festival the same time in 2018, there’s a rehearsal dinner on the Friday night reserved under a person’s name as well as a Sunday brunch. Does that mean Merri-Makers already saved their wedding date but they went to the town for the other events? I’d rather deal with the people at the boro office than the caterer.

We are doing a special “Mind and Body Balance ” program for women on that day. The summer camp activities are presently being held at the pavilion. Monday night concerts ( which I so enjoy ) are presently being held on Monday evenings now…from July through August . Dances are being held there on Tuesday evenings. Senior luncheons are being held at the pavilion. Kitchen cabinets are designated for different community groups. This coming Sunday St. Rose Church is holding a mass at the gazebo. If it rains we have been promised the Taylor Pavilion by borough officials. As I learn of other events/ activities to be held at our community center…The Taylor Pavilion..I’ll let you know via this blog.
