    Why would they bother to put it in a bag if they are going to leave it on the beach anyway?

    #1- Guest, please educate yourself. Withdrawl from alcohol by one who’s system is physically addicted to it can cause death if not done under medical care. And I’m sure the owner of that liquor store can sleep a little easier knowing he’s not gonna get a call at 3 am due to someone smashing out his window for a bottle of booze.

    Kudos to mayor Walsifer for making this sensible decision. First off I am a long time dog owner. I’ve been walking the beach since the boardwalk closed and the amount of dog feces on the beach is disgusting. And leashes, forget it. Dogs running wild jumping on people and other dogs. Even when the boardwalk was open, there was feces left there as well. I would say most dog owners are responsible and keep their dogs leashed and clean up. But it’s always the minority who dont that ruin it for the rest. Thank you mayor for making the right decision on this issue.

    Liquor stores have cigarettes, lotto and high taxes. State won’t shutdown that revenue stream.

    You want to see the country start paying attention, close them down and we’ll see how long people are OK with a quarantine! 🙂

    So cars full of people can come to the beach but not individual dog owners with their dogs? If they’re so concerned about waste, why not leave some trash cans out? I notice that trash cans are still being used on main street. Ridiculous.

    Hey #13. Its obvious if people let their dogs shit on the beach, unbagged or not. They dont care about trash cans.

    I fail to see a disgusting amount of dog waste on the beach as someone stated earlier. If people are at least 50 feet from each other, how is someone’s dog a problem? At least we can still drink.

    Or, they use the bag because someone is watching, and then just drop the bag. Most that are going to leave it for others to clean up just leave it where it drops.

    #19 – Yep, this is the way of many/most younger people. They’ve mostly/all been taught that they’re “special” and that small things like taking and depositing trash and dog dropping correctly is beneath their dignity – [new manner of living].

    Give all residents parking decals for their cars and ban all parking in town east of say C street like Spring Lake’s ban on all street parking. Too much common sense for this administration.

    I see many more bags of poop in the garbage which gets emptied daily than I’ve ever seen on the beach. Anyway, isn’t this measure being taken to stop the spread of the corona virus even though I don’t see how it will have any effect.

    This has been an issue long before COVID-19. every damn day i see people walking dogs unleashed on our beach. too many people don’t clean up after their dog and yes, i have seen some bags of feces left in the sand, especially on 20th Ave. Not to mention it is beach nesting bird season so the state DEP would likely close off the beach to dogs soon anyway

    Oh yes, a large part of the first avenue beach that used to be enjoyed by people and dogs has went to the birds. Also a large part between Spring Lake and Belmar has been roped off and given to an invasive beach weed called amaranth. It’s so endangered that it’s growing elsewhere too. I also heard that there has been sightings of an endangered fly, called the South Jersey Greenhead Teetsy fly thats habitat is being encroached upon so we must make way for these creatures too.

    20-Not true at all. To make a sweeping generalization about young people is wrong. We live across from the river where many people walk their dogs-on the river path. We see everything from our porch. Every young person-and there are many-picks up and cleans up after their dogs. Give us a break with this”new way of living “ nonsense. Now you’re against young people, too? By the way, 25 makes a great point.

    #24 what’s wrong with giving some of the beach back to nature? How selfish can you be? There are entire ecosystems that only exist on the beachfront. I am proud that belmar has first ave roped off and think it’s beautiful

    The net effect of banning various locations from the public will only make people congregate in even closer proximity to eachother in the last few locations that they still can.
    Now it seems people are even closer together walking next to the boardwalk.

    #28- Well you would have to look at his job description when he was hired. Again, can anyone answer who this guy is?, His bio? His qualifications? Does he too pull down a hefty state pension along with his Belmar salary? Who’s job did he take? or was it made for him? And if he did replace someone else, what exactly does that person do now? Still Belmar employed? Hello, anyone other there have answers??

    20-The young people I know don’t think they’re special. Nothing is beneath them. They do volunteer work at churches, and assist with meal preparations for the less fortunate. My granddaughter volunteers for a group that organizes activities for disabled children. What an offensive, untrue statement made by #20. Also, when the weather is bad and snowing, a neighborhood young man offers to shovel our snow, and refuses payment! The young people I know do not feel entitled,or”special.” 20-How many young people do you actually know, to make such egregious statements? Also, young people do clean up after their dogs. Since you posted your accusation, # 20, I have deliberately taken note and every young person that walks by my house with their dogs pick up after them. Frankly, overall, I’m proud of our young people.

    You couldn’t be more wrong about young people,#20. The young generation is giving, kind, and charitable. If you check out volunteer organizations most of the individuals are between 20-30 years of age. They weren’t raised to feel special, as you claim. Most of the young people were raised by two working parents-they had to help in the home, and were expected to be responsible . Once again, your negative thinking is hurtful and insulting. You have no idea what young people are like. I have a friend who lives by herself. Her young relatives do all of her errands and keep her company. They are in their early twenties. This is just one example about the goodness of young people.I have many more examples I can relate. Nothing is beneath them. What a cruel statement made by 20 about young people. He has no idea.

    #36- volunteer
    Yes, some will volunteer, but most of them only “volunteer” because the school makes them. Once they get their paper signed that they had done that duty, you never see them again. Once again yes, here and there you do run into a young person who keeps coming back and is really a person to make his parents proud. But that’s far from the norm.
    “cruel” – Yes, life is even more than cruel to those who think they’re going to half-a*s their way through it.

    37-Lots of misinformation. No school “makes” students volunteer. If they do volunteer, many stay with a project for an extended period of time. I am in a position of knowing this. When have you worked side-by-side with young people in recent times, Mr. D ? Your last sentence in comment 37 makes no sense.

    A few years ago, I refused to sign the paper of a boy who’d “volunteered” through a school because of his lack of effort. That boy went crazy. It was like watching a 2 year old throwing a tantrum. I told him TS but it didn’t mollify him. You should have seen the ramifications of it all. Tempest in a teapot. The school said they wouldn’t “work” with our organization ever again. I thought it was funny as h*ll people standing up for laziness. Of course, the Ladies in our organization were upset with me for awhile but they got over it.
