No Go Fund Me?

Very surprising.


Personally I think the guy he had to go out there and rescue should pay the medical bills.

    Is it true that Belmar is “precluded by state law from paying for his medical bills”
    OR that Belmar is not required to pay for his medical bills?

    The way it is stated in the article is that even if Belmar wanted to pay for his medical bills the town could not.

    Write the guy a check and bill it to the 10th Ave. Pavilion project. Label it “change order” or “sub contractor”. No one will ever catch on. Or bill it to the Beach Utility Fund and label it “off season lifeguard duty”. Again, no one will ever call you on it.

    The man saved a life, maybe a go fund me program could be started as a thank you gesture. What do you think?

    #5 Or dinghy repair. There has got to be a way, just a little creative bookkeeping, nothing new, I presume. No more fundraisers; the Borough can still be sued. What is the condition of the guy who was saved? Did he just walk away?

    Keep the lifeguards on the beach until Oct 15th. This will save lives. Also, extend lifeguard coverage of beaches until 8 pm during the summer.

    #8: There’s plenty of money on the Beach Utility Fund. A volunteer Attorney should petition the DCA on behalf of the Pennsylvania Lifeguard to pay his outstanding Lifesaving medical expenses.

    #8 Sir/Madam – We shouldn’t do anything differently than we have been. Everyone knows that Labor Day is the last day of the season and if you swim afterwards, it’s at your own risk. I have as much sympathy for those who drown but people must be responsible for their own actions. You/we can’t safeguard everyone every minute of the day year in and year out, nor should we try.

    Why is the Beach Utility Fund in debt? Did the Asbury Park Press fabricate Belmar Beach revenue from badges at 3 plus million dollars this year?
