    I predict it doesn’t go through. Mayor Matt knows that if anyone audits the beach utility’s books, his term as Mayor goes down in flames. This is to risky to chance. Lets see if I’m right…

    Plain and simple, Doherty needs the money. His much touted 0% municipal tax increase is a joke and just keeps putting off the inevitable. It would be interesting to know if the parking fees along the boardwalk and the fines associated with violations on those meters are put towards the beach utility (where they should go) or the general fund. My guess would be the general fund.

    Should all go to beach utility. Just wait until a liberal NJ judge gets the case.

    The borough hopes to get Ocean Avenue, a county road, paved in fall, but must first install a curb along the length. “In order to get the county to do (the paving), we need to put in 1.3 miles of curbing. That costs about $150,000,” Connolly said. “If we don’t raise the money through the parking utility, the alternative is to bond for that money. Nobody wants that.”

    The curbing requirement is a revelation to me …. Ms. Connolly’s final statement is correct! As a property owner …. I don’t want to borrow more money to pay for beachfront improvements that don’t provide some ocean flood protection …. Remember the sheet pile dunes?
    I would be in favor of the installation of New Jersey Highway concrete barrier instead of mere curb …. the barrier would provide 30″ of ocean elevation protection at additional cost …. Ms. Connolly’s estimate for the cast in place curb works out to be about $22 per lineal foot …. mass produced pre-cast concrete barrier is about $50 per foot …. used worldwide, the best NJ invention since Edison’s light bulb

    No problem with them doubling the cost to park as long as they don’t charge after 7pm like they have been doing…

    I thought Fema would have paid the town of Belmar for the curb along the boardwalk.Why is the town not invoicing Fema for this?

    Let’s start a “buy a curb” campaign and then use the money raised for the pavilions.

    Maybe the town could initiate a curb “memorial” program like with the benches.

    Spend a certain amount and get plaque on the curb saying who is in rememberance of or donated by
