    Reggie should hire clean up crew starting at 3a.m. His patrons will never stop their mayhem because they know there are no consequences in Belmar.

    Slight difference since I was in HK in the early 60s. At that time, the biggest building was just 20+ floors and thousands of people lived on sampans.

    Sad this has been going on since I moved here at 28 years old. Residents feel violated when this happens. The disrespect shown by the visitors we attract is disgusting, and always has been. When the town makes residents the priority we can clean up anything. The problem has been someone is always making money on the back of the people who live here. Try this is SeaGirt or Spring Lake and see how far you get. When I was 28 and went to a town meeting and asked about various problems I was encountering , I was told Vickie we are not Spring Lake! I understand that but why can’t we learn and emulate towns that get it right.

    are we posting an old photo just to drum up anger for no apparent reason?
    Would prefer to see an actual picture from last night

    seems like there is an agenda here

    #4 That’s comparing apples to oranges. Those towns do not have rental properties that even an average adult can afford these days. And this happens in Manasquan as well. I am by no means condoning this, but you just can’t compare LKC/Belmar to those towns.

    #4…. I agree with you 100%… There is a reasonable code of conduct that is expected when in public… The culture of acceptable behavior must change in Belmar…. It is not reasonable to allow the town to be over-run by partying drunks every summer…. To say Belmar is not Spring Lake is just a defeatist attitude…

    #8-I was merely pointing out the clientele is much different in Spring Lake than Belmar. It’s much different than Manasquan or Seaside….need I go on. Not a defeatist attitude but more a realistic one

    #10… When a town allows bars to run wild, the wrong clients become your customers….. Like I keep saying the culture of the town needs to change and it starts with M&C….

    #7 What’s wrong with aiming higher. My point at 28yrs old was asking if we could improve our main street at the time with American flags and beautiful flowering planters and on our light fixtures. you see back then we couldn’t even think of those things because we weren’t Spring Lake ! Ha Ha.Oh my we have those things now soI guess we are Spring Lake. Read my last sentence…emulate the beauty and the morals of those that get it right and continue to improve where we can. You saying we can’t compare is not positive. Belmar never thought they would have million dollar homes and we sure have them now. I think as more people with higher incomes moved here they also expect a decent environment to dwell in. It’s a shame ,it’s their 2nd home because we could use their help on voting to improve issues which reflect our quality of life. Beautiful million dollar homes do not go with disrespectful drunks. We will never be Spring Lake nor do I think we should be. We are Belmar and we have a lot to offer .In my opinion we still have room to improve so look to those who do things right.

    Agree with Vickie 100% … it doesn’t matter where you live/ value of your house. It comes down to human behavior/ acceptable and unacceptable. We can always strive for a better quality of life in our town; however, we need the mayor and council to stand up and enforce specific ordinances such as noise, occuppancy in rentals and bars,
    traffic violations (speeding, failure to stop at red lights, failure to stop at stop streets, failure to stop for pedestrians at crosswalks). Has anyone seen where the band sets up every Sunday afternoon at Burrito’s? On the sidewalk next to plastic enclosure annex of Burritos..the equipment plus band block
    the sidewalk and egress of customers .. Where is code enforcement? Suppose there was a fire/ shooting! The band is so loud I m sure volume would break the decibel meter…

    by the way this picture looks like 16th and main street by the sunrise food market. Last year I made a few phone calls about a fence to stop people urinating behind the store. I was told the temporary chain link fence that was put up would be replaced with a better fence to hide the garbage containers facing residents. They said it was on order but it would be a few weeks .What happened? The owner on Inlet terrace had no idea people were urinating there and assured she would improve the situation
