The Numbers At A Glance

Here are my calculations of the real numbers for how the pavilions would be financed:

Cost of 5th Ave Pavilion:               $4,100,000

100% FEMA money for 5th:          -$437,000

40% FEMA money from 13th:      -$306,000

4.3% of cost of 5th for beach use: -$176,000 (Payable from beach utility fund)


5th Ave COST TO TAXPAYERS:   $3,181,000


Cost of 10th Ave Pavilion:              $2,000,000

66.6% paid by beach utility:           -$1,332,000


10th Ave COST TO TAXPAYERS:     $668,000

    Holy cow! I still don’t understand why the council wasted our time, money and more importantly the good faith of the people with their allusion that the 4.1 MILLION dollar 5th Avenue would be free?

    would like to thank everybody and anybody who helped in proving the mayor wrong as usual. Most of all Kenneth Pringle and his staff and the people from Belmar who believed
    they were right.

    The #s themselves originally from Chris Smith’s office, later confirmed in Pringle’s notes. Percentages we can use are from Pringle’s notes.

    The worst of all this is if it is true that the mayor is not going to run again when this all hits us he won’t be here to suffer with us. Rats leave when the ship starts to sink.
