Tomorrow Night’s Lowlights

All kinds of nasty stuff in store for us at tomorrow night’s council meeting:

There’s a resolution to have the planning board consider whether the “ENTIRE BOROUGH” should be designated as an “AREA IN NEED OF REHABILITATION”!!  I can’t imagine that anyone in town likes the sound of that!  Sounds like they are preparing to start grabbing control of people’s properties.  I hope I’m wrong.

Then there’s the first reading of an ordinance to borrow another $$$$ 4 Million !!!!!! to sink into the marina!!!!!!????   FOUR MILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!

If the definition of a boat is a hole in the ocean that you fill with your money, then I guess the definition of the Belmar Marina is a vast crater in the ocean that you fill with millions of dollars of other people’s money.  We are always being told what a great asset the marina is.  The marina is giving us debts of over $10 million now, but no profits.  I’d hate to see what Matt thinks a liability looks like.

And then there is also the matter of the evil SID.  There will be a hearing about, and then likely passage of, the SID budget.  I believe it’s around $176,000.  I will propose we cut it by that same amount.

All this and $millions more of our money will be appropriated and spent tomorrow evening.  It’s going to be a long night.

    Tonight should mark the end of the SID as we know it unless you believe that a few holiday flags around town, benches and crazy looking bike racks are worth $176K. Oh, I forgot the SID consultant that makes over $100 an hour (but rest assured he works more hours than he is supposed to).

    Have you ever been to the SID’s website? It is
    Shameful that they paid good money for that site. Its been 2 years and it still looks terrible.
