Tuesday Night

The agenda:



The resolutions:



Note that they are hiring financial consultants Holman, Frenia, Allison, P.C. for services up to $4500/month.

The firm is well connected in local GOP circles, having contributed over $50,000—in the 2019 election cycle alone—to Monmouth and Ocean Republican candidates for assembly, freeholder, sheriff, mayor and local council.

Ordinances for 1st reading:


BTW, since when is a town-wide revamp of parking ordinances, a total re-do of construction codes related to flood control and mitigation, and a ban on the use of plastic straws and foam coffee cups considered to be “routine” parts of a consent agenda? Why is it assumed that everybody is going to vote yes for all of this?


Ordinances for 2nd reading and public hearing:



Schneck’s 2 cents:

The Plaza parking lot bordered by the dollar store, the train station, 10th Ave and the bank should be available to be used by rail commuters. Or at least most of it should be. It should be open before the first train of the morning arrives and should allow for our hard working commuters to park there for as long as their commute requires. Why make people who are working 13 hour days walk blocks to the station in the morning…and possibly miss their trains…and then blocks to their cars in the evening…in the cold, rain and dark?

I’m not a fan of business improvement districts, I was against the last one and I’m against the new one, but at minimum this new project should be tabled until Belmar’s businesses can actually get back to business. Many of these places are struggling just to survive and the Borough should not be placing even 1 cent of extra burden on them right now.

    #1- You are not alone. Many of us out there are in agreement. And when do they plan on stopping/limiting summer rentals?? Money over the health and wellness of the residents. Greed and crookedness.

    Borough lots and streets were never FREE parking. Belmar property taxpayers have been bankrolling public parking for years.

    I applaud M&C’s attempt to make vehicle owners pay to park

    In a town that is so strapped for cash, it is crazy that we are giving these developers such sweetheart deals. I’d love to only pay 10% of my property taxes!!!!
