Residents get ultimatums

    Why is Sandy Relief funding being used to enhance the streetscape of Main Street? This does not seem right.

    Of course this gets posted in front of an official polling place(s) 2 weeks before an election.

    If the Mayor and Council think that by putting in new lights and brick sidewalks is going to bring in businesses to rent the stores, keep dreaming! The reality is Belmar is no longer populated by full time residents. Any business even the restaurants is now seasonal, and if the weather is not good business will suffer. It is a high risk most businesses will not take.Oh wait, maybe if they pave Main St gold that will bring them in to rent the vacant stores.

    Did you file a FEMA claim for the “SANDY Damages” sustained to the sidewalks, jointly owed by you and Belmar, in front of your homes? Silly rabbits! Were the damages sustained to your sidewalks and curbs caused by the heavy equipment moving all the “Samdy” sand and debris from your jointly owned sidealks and curbing in front of your homes?

    Did you get a tax break for the resale of all the undamaged brick pavers that were ripped out on Main Street to make way for the newer brick sidewalk pavers?

    There is no “joint ownership” of residential sidewalks and curbs. The borough owns the sidewalks and curbs, and the residential property ends three to five feet from the sidewalk toward the house. Think about it.

    And paving Main Street sidewalks could cut down on lawsuits when inebriated people trip and fall in front of those treasured businesses that seem too vital and valued to the administration than the residents. Less booze, more common sense, please.

    The real question is, Who paid for this BS sign? I’m sure it wasn’t the NJEDA. PEOPLE OF BELMAR, R E A D THE SIGN. Once again, efforts of “OUR MAYOR AND BOROUGH COUNCIL” deciding to waste more of your tax money for their political gains. I feel violated every time I write out a check to pay my taxes knowing “some of it” goes into Matt’s pocket indirectly. Property taxes = Belmar money spent on Mayor/Council propaganda = more pocket money for Matt’s lagoon toys through favors. Please help get rid of these thieves. VOTE MARK AND JOSH

    If the borough of Belmar owns the sidewalk$ and curb$ throughout Belmar why are individually owned properties being assessed for sidewalk repairs? Why, ask your elected officials. What’s the difference between sidewalk$ and curb$ on Main Street and our homes? I remember the old advice to visitors: beautiful downtown Belmar with its paved streets (now torn up).

    Even the Main Street businesses are being shortchanged …. the ongoing work does not include rain gutters as required by the Borough’s Code.
    Recent history construction on portions of 12th & 13th Avenues and Inlet Terrace have a nice concrete gutter for positive drainage.
    Curbs, with concrete gutters, is a superior design.

    Concrete gutters are the real, proven method for effective drainage. PLANNING is deficient in Belmar. SPEED the plow is Belmar’s method to lose the race.

Can you imagine how sticky our the 5th Avenue Pavilion garbage situation will be if Brandl gets or should I say when the BID is decided?
