    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?

    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 . I don’t think on Inlet Terrace they would accept this look and I don’t think 16th avenue should accept it either.

    As of now the code enforcer is on vacation in Ireland. We need him here now in the summer. If you can’t do the summer then you should not have the job.

    Hey, mayor and council when are you going to enforce stop on red on Main St (particularly intersection 8th, 9th, 10th 16th and 18th) Today at 2:15pm at 9th and Main St.. driver momentarily stopped at red light, pedestrians began crossing street in the crosswalk. Driver
    proceeds to drive ..I yelled out “Stop!”
    Driver looks at me as he passes! Where are the foot patrols on Main St esp on the weekends…Set up decoys over the weekends during the summer at random intersections on Main St. We have a constituitional right to Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of happiness! We should not have to fear for our lives everytime we cross a street in Belmar.

    I quite often see very good questions on this site directed toward our MC. Could someone come up with a system whereby questions could be written anonymously on post cards at a council meeting and deposited in a box? Volunteers (Tom, Mr. Creamer, myself and such) would then use their allotted 5 mins. and read these questions to the MC. We could then hear answers for the two Reps. running for council this coming election day to decide whether or not we throw them out and vote in Jim Bean and Mark Levis or not.

    The public is no longer restricted to speaking for 5 minutes at meetings, as in the days of Dictator Doherty. I would just say to use the time at the microphone efficiently and plainly to voice concerns, pro or con. If people do not speak up, the Mayor and Council Members may assume that “everything is fine”.

    #19 – Interesting topic. As far as the interaction between people afoot and driver go, what you are complaining about is already a moot point. This is the situation. The last object a driver sees is a person afoot. The people (not really pedestrians – just drivers who happen to be at the moment afoot), more or less are oblivious to their own surroundings. Obviously, this is not a good set of circumstances. My advice to you is to Jwalk (between lights). That way, for the most part, you only have to deal with traffic coming from two directions. There’s always a break in traffic flow that’ll allow you to cross.
    “Decoys” – Absolutely not. That’s the type of thing the Southerners used to do to us back in the 60s. Let’s never do what rebels do. They couldn’t help it because they’re morons (I mean that only in the best way of course). But lets not do what they did.
    I mentioned foot patrols to the mayor and council at the last meeting as a way to save on gas for the police cars. They didn’t respond. I believe they’re afraid to try something like that because the younger policemen would probably go stark raving mad at the thought of actually walking.
