Thankfully NH Behind The Times

On this and a lot of other trends.

Actually there were a ton of complaints, at least from one person.


Here’s something else that’s not an issue up here:

No Belmar public official would have told this writer that badges have to go up because we haven’t had a tax increase.  We all know that one is supposed to have nothing to do with the other.  This gives readers the impression that the town uses badge revenues to help pay the town’s expenses.

Of course that would be illegal and would never happen in Belmar.

    Once again spewing falsehoods. Our taxes have gone up at the same rate as other neighboring towns. Stop the excuses. Stop the spending/high salaries.

    Slocum v Belmar is 30 years old and should be revisited … especially parking for beachgoers.
    Yes, there is paid parking next to the boardwalk.
    But, the majority of the public park curbside along Belmar streets for free.

    I’m thinking the beach fess should be raised. Seniors should pay more for season badges.

    Belmar currently can’t pay guards and badge checkers a competitive hourly rate compared to almost every other town in Monmouth County, hence one reason for the rising beach badge fees. It needs to be done to adequately staff the beach and keep patrons safe.

    # 10 You don’t have a clue as to the difficulty of your idea. One daily price for everybody and lower age for free admission to all 12 and under. Raise senior season to $25.00.

    Who doesn’t Democrat Murphy embrace FREE beaches for all. The state can take over lifeguarding and cleaning. It could be paid for by raising taxes on the RICH, you know, those that make over $100k a year.

    Good to see the administration talking about and addressing issues like the beach utility head on. Acting like adults vs previous administration of lackeys burying their heads in the sand where everything was just great! And miraculously in the paper a timely police blotter vs. seeing it several months later or at all
