    So when do property taxes go down like Lake Como’s have? And where did they come up with $12M to pay down debt, or is this just a silly numbers game?

    U complainers have no clue – tax rate in Belmar $1.34 per hundred while tax rate in Wall $1.99 per hundred that’s a difference of .65 per hundred almost .50 higher with far less ratable’s – no matter where this administration came up with the $ to reduce the debt – this administration is on the right track – give them some credit

    Well Master, they could have reduced it another k83 by not trying to make up jobs for their cronies.

    The Sea Girt tax rate is .688 and Spring Lake is .63 so , Belmar tax payers have a very good reason to complain .

    #4 you can’t compare our tax rate to Spring Lake or Seagirt our average cost of a residence is well below theirs, someone every year tries to compare Belmar to another town and it doesn’t work Belmar is Belmar, if you don’t like what you see or hear run for mayor or council or voice yourself at meetings.

    #5 makes a point. On that note a more intriguing statistic would be cost( or expenditure) per resident. Budget/population if someone would care to run a comparison. I’d be interested to see that figure.

    You would have to first subtract spending for beach utilities and for the marina.

    I’m quite pleased to see the hard work of making not necessarily popular choices paying off for the residents of Belmar over all.
    That’s what good governance looks like.
    Congratulations Mayor, Council, Admin and all those involved.

    8-Interesting. The world is black or white for # 8. Nothing in between. She continues at every opportunity to bash the previous administration, “ her sarcastic remark of late” the gift that keeps on giving. “ regarding MayorDoherty’s team. ) But the present administration reflects “good governance,” and deserves praise. Never really digesting the issues on either side. Is anything perfect, especially with politics and government? No. But lets be realistic about what’s good , and not so good. With every administration.

    I agree with # 10. # 8 Continues to criticize the Doherty administration without provocation. Her comment, “The gift that keeps on giving “ is proof of that. And praise of the present administration is glowing. “This is what good governance looks like.”

    #8- Good governance??? Really. Just keep raising taxes and wasting money on crony jobs. Lake Como’s taxes keep going down and we continue to subsidize (with our tax money) their services. Now that, I would say, is good governance on their part. I think you are confused.
