Tuesday’s Agenda

Borough settles lifeguard suit for $120,000

Insurance to cover less than half



The agenda:



Read the resolutions here.

April hasn’t posted the ordinances on the website yet.  I am curious to see what a “Director of Special Operations” is and also to see what new abuse the Borough has in store for smokers down there.

So glad I left.

    Is the settlement for the lifeguard per person and the total?

    And as far as this settlement goes ( I do trust Walsifer’s judgement as he tried suing Belmar in 2002 and lost), have Cone Man hueisman, Tommy B and all these John Does come before the residents and explain why this cost is good for all of us. Can’t wait to see how many millions the Harmons are getting.

    So how much are the plaintiffs and defendants legal fees and increased insurance premiums, associated with the Elms case, going to cost Belmar taxpayers in addition to the settlement?

    Belmar citizens need to come to the Mayor and Council meeting and when given the opportunity demand that the budget gets cut before raising taxes. We need to be vocal and come out in numbers See you all there.

    120k of which at least 60k is uninsured. Aside from myself how many other boro taxpayers would love to see Connelly,Doherty and the rest of the crew responsible pick up the tab for the very unnecessary expense? This is another glaring example of bad judgement from the leaders resulting in no cost to themselves but with the poor schemiels[?] picking up the tab. This next crew better do a far superior job or instead of leaders we will have tar and feathers sitting on the dais. And while i am at it let me endorse the comments of the Commish.

    Hey 10. Walsifer is straightening out the mess he was left with. Next step is to clean out our corrupt police leadership.

    #13- You are correct. Sounds almost criminal to me. So now God forbid you fire Mr. Harsin, he’ll be suing again. Talk about having the town of Belmar by the sack of marbles. Are these people kidding us or what. Vote them all out also. Any good Independents (or Libertarians) out there looking to help us out here.

    So does this mean Harry and Tim didn’t settle? Only Ray? Or is 120,000 for all three ?

    Sadly what not so average Joe [#12] said is all too true. We have been a leader in a negative way in being out of control ,so ok Walsifer needs to show us that we can return to sound and efficient management and it needs to be done right off the gitgo.
