Monday Moaning

The wait staff from Cruz Bay Cafe were out in full force over the weekend handing out menus and taking orders on the 5th, 4th and 3rd Ave beaches. I’m sure this is going on on the beaches south of the pavilion too. This is being done in full view of the police.  None of the staff were wearing badges.

The selective enforcement of our beachfront regulations is corruption and….any move to change the law at this point would also be a corrupt act.  Whether they allow solicitation by special permit or simply remove the law and allow a free-for-all, it would be obviously done to help one politically favored entity and will be vociferously opposed on these pages.

I might even petition against it.  For Joy.

I also want to call this morning for the dismissal of Gibbons PC as our attorneys in all current and future litigation.  The Kapalko settlement they engineered, to the unanimous applause of our Council I might add, was a disaster for the Borough.  Did anyone really think that an agreement that ignores the legitimate interests of the Harmons was going to work? The only party that ending up benefiting was Gibbons PC who will now, if we let them, be charging us $450 hour to defend the Borough against the Harmons’ newest lawsuit.

    Remember Ramon Rivera? …. Apparently, our elected officials hire attorneys based upon what they want to hear …. then they invoice by-the-hour.

    Can you file a complaint with the municipal court since you witnessed the soliciting on the beach? It won’t stop until a complaint is filed or you complaint to a police officer who in turn ignores the situation..

    There was nothing in the bid packet allowing soliciting on the beach front.

    $90,000 a year for a concession must have come with MANY backroom promises. First we saw how this operation booked 17 prime days for weddings at OUR pavilion for cheap, and now their employees are ILLEGALLY scouring the beach like it is their private restaurant space? By the way, whats with the corral of picnic tables behind the pavilion, another backroom deal?

    Police are ignoring the blatant violations?
    Since the police, municipal employees, and municipal officials may be involved in misconduct here, maybe the Monmouth County Prosecutor should be informed.

    Soliciting on the beach is a horror. How about a group lawsuit for harassment on beach?

    I would suggest to all the other food establishments on the beach to do the same. Then we will see if the law is enforced!
    The cynic is me thinks the police would start handing out tickets.

    Forget the other restaurants, I am starting a delivery business soliciting with menus from all of the area restaurants. I may bring along and sell some sun screen also while I’m out soliciting on the beach.

    I got solicited by woman last year who wanted $10.00 dollars. I got her down to a dollar. Then I seen her again this year and I told her she ruined my marraige because she gave me crabs and she replied, “what do you expect for a dollar, lobsters”?

    For a guy that ran for Monmouth County Freeholder, Belmar is certainly hiring a lot of attorney’s from outside Monmouth County.

    I think the Maori should charge for tourists to take a photo with him on the beach. He could donate the money to nj unions
