Health Not Up To Speed

A few weeks ago resident George Skudera wrote to the county Board of Health.  Mr. Skudera had numerous concerns about what he felt were detrimental health and safety issues that had developed at Maclearie Park in recent years.  He did not feel they were being addressed at the local level.

Unsurprisingly they just tossed it back to Belmar but they did reveal to us that they don’t really even know what’s going on here.letter2-2

I think they might want to double check a few of those statements.

    We now live in a form of government where most officials have plausible deniability by design. Ultimately any official ( elected or appointed ) must get the answer ( true or false ) from the unelected and true Mayor of Belmar, Colleen M. Connolly of Avon by the Sea. Enjoy!!!!!

    Maria, they’ve been going in the river or porta potty for 3 years now. That beach was by no means closed last summer. I witnessed families sit right under the boardwalk when the tide was high. That beach is always packed EVERY summer – unless closed for fecal matter in the water.

    bathroom trailer in Maclerie Park is to have showers? For who? Fix the permanent bathroom that is there now and has been there for many years. Just not taken care of on purpose….

    Looks like they’ll be using outdoor urinals (already in use in S.F.,Cal.) and slit trenches pretty soon.
