    I’m sure pay has something to do wit it but I’d say probably many young applicants can’t pass the test. Of course, they don’t want to say that out loud because people’s feelings might be hurt.

    Our Lifeguards need and have to have great stamina! You can get the job done without it. She’s diminishing our endurance ratio.

  4. Wait!! Didn’t they have over 125 applicants for 70 positions back in March? Oh wait, that was Colleen Connolly talking. Never mind.

    Please assess guards at beaches you usually frequent. Average age of new hires appears to be 16

    Years ago the ex code enforcement officer, Pat McMahon put in an illegal concrete driveway on his front lawn on 9th ave. I made a complaint to no avail. Would still love to see that permit!

    #6 …. 16 years is probably a good starting age …. after 17 …. parking in Belmar becomes the problem

    potential job applicants don’t seem impressed with the super lifeguard 10th Avenue Pavilion and watchtower (wasted $)

    #3 – Our young people don’t do stamina.
    #5 – Average is good. The job is yours.
    #6 – “Assess” – do you mean a swim suit competition?
    #11 – 16 is fine. I hope they can swim.

    I can float backwards wearing high heels…irrelevant, but this summer beach season will be very interesting. Hope no one drowns. No lifeguards in the 10th Avenue safety building tower to ogle my fine figure. Oh well, I can wear the high heels anyway when I sunbathe in my one-piece shiny gold swimsuit. No, I will not go to D’Jais. Especially if the “osprey on my pickup” guy is not around any more. Drat! I am getting too old for this crap anymore. Dave, I will miss you.

    #7 Stone filled front yards are also prohibited,or at least it was.Started on 12th and C and now one or 2 on Rt 35. No maintenance for those who don’t live here. Never understood why they did’t buy in Lavalette where that’s the look.

    The Police Chief and Administration sure have done a wonderful job with the new direction of the Beach Patrol. I have never seen so many stands down or stands with one person sitting on them. Are you crazy? What are they going to do when it gets really crowded and busy. This may wind up being one of the biggest mistakes ever made. Drew, Brian, and Coleen should be ashamed of themselves….. Horrible!

    Tuesday, June 12th, beautiful beach day.
    Quite afew people on the beach.
    Then all the sudden 2 dune buggies with 2 people up front 2 in the back..come speeding up the beach parallel to each other..zig zagging by sunbathers.
    I don’t know if they were DPW or the beach chair company. Unprofessionalism and recklessness seems to be norm in Belmar.

    Who is in charge of cleaning the fenced in area behind Taylor? All sorts of beer bottles and broken glass down there. Disgraceful.

    Point taken, the former mayor is still in charge behind the curtain and political corruption and retaliation still rule. Reality check – revolution or devolution.

    A big revolution might do it. Somethings have to change. We may be uneven in votes but we are not stupid either. We just do not know where and how to start. It would take a lot of money to undue this mess. I do not understand except for the politicians why something hasn’t been done. Laws
    have been broken.
