During public comment, a BHW resident asked about the funding that has so far been DENIED by ourRead Moreins urance company which was supposed to REPAY the costs to build the extravagant community center projects approved by this mayor and council. The resident was swiftly CORRECTED by Mr Moran as receiving misinformation on the subject. Mr Moran is correct. We ALL have received misinformation on this topic. But not by the newspapers or "other sources" he referred to but out of Mr Moran's own mouth at multiple twp meetings. Mr Moran would like you to believe his words are being mischaracterized. Perhaps he should remember these meetings are televised and archived on the twp website so it leaves him little room to dispute what we're hearing and seeing him say. Mr Moran stated at THIS meeting we have received around $140k so far from our insurance claim on the damaged Millcreek center but also states we haven't signed off on that money for fear of losing future appeals to receive more. So we've received NOTHING. He states we are waiting on Fema money. Waiting means we've received NOTHING. The only money we know we have received is a $250k donation from Alec Baldwin but that is certainly shy of the 2.3 MILLION dollars they've approved to construct the TWO new centers. So which is it, Mr Moran, because you can't have it both ways. Either you have the money or you don't. You can be as creative as you want to with your words but nothing you say will ever detract from the "jumping the gun" actions taken by this mayor and council where these centers are concerned. But don't take my word for it. Roll the beautiful bean footage of all of the previous twp meetings from this year and watch yourself as you tell us conflicting information and then explain to us again how we're mischaracterizing ANYTHING that's coming out of your own mouth.

So let's look at the math, I think we need to look at the numbers to put it all into perspective.Read More W e've received $140k. On average, loss recovery has been anywhere from 0% to 25%. The % received has to be about 28% or more because Mr. Moran also stated that we did not meet our excess loss coverage which was $500k. This means the loss has to be a % that when calculated would fall below $500k mark, so mathematically taking the $140k received and divided by the % received 28% gives you $500k exactly. If FEMA gives you 90% of that number, the loss of the old building not new ones, which Mr. Moran “hopes” the twp. will receive, that's only $450k and that amount will be reduced by what the carrier paid out, ($140k) so max amount that could be received would only be $450k, plus what Baldwin gave, $250k now you have a total of $700k that you can possibly get. This all again is predicated on an “if”, according to Mr. Moran. But wait there's more. Between lawyers and Engineers at $100/hr (I wish) we can be assured that those costs would accumulate to $50k easily. $2.3M less $700k plus $50k = $1.65M. How is that even close to being paid for by grants and insurance? The answer, it's not. Who is going to get that bill for the difference, the tax payers are. I can go all day long at this. The facts don’t lie Mr. Moran. Also for the record, cashing that check for $140k will not negate the potential claim, nor disqualify you from appealing the outcome of the claim. Cashing the check does not constitute agreement of the settlement of the claim. They need a signature to do that, my understanding is, that’s the law. The council should strongly consider putting these centers on hold now that they know they can't afford them and wait until there is funding. Needs vs. Wants.

Driving around town and wasting gas one more time isn't the answer. Most of these houses have beenRead Morev iolated several times already. You really think the code enforcer doesn't know every empty home in barnegat. If the owner doesn't care or can't be found, then what? Do we hire roofers and landscapers to fix these houses with my tax dollars so real estate agents can make money? Probably since 2 committee people are real estate agents! It's all a political game

The home i referred to is occupied & the people have a cleaning business; much of theirRead Moreequipmen t is all along the walkway leading to their front door. I've offered to email pics to code enforcement, they know the house...even the police know the house.

Trash at the docks has been a problem for years! The township need regular trash pick up there asRead Morew ell as more trask cans for people too put the trash in them. We also need people to take pride in their town.
very nice April 20, 2014 at 05:07 PM
The dock master should have a list of chores .
Randy Fluke April 21, 2014 at 08:14 PM
OK , CPO Rob and very nice. the trash cans are emptied by waste management , as well as the Read Moredumpsters which folks throw their household and yard trash in because they most likely do not want a trash can sitting in front of their pretty little house, the dockmaster has a list of chores and as new ones come they learn what it takes to keep the dock running and clean, also their are things called BIRDS who have a habit of diving the trash, maby you would like to hang around all day and shoo them away like the dockmaster with a flyswatter keeping the greenheads away from you and all els on the dock.I don't know if you posted that , if not check the other blog.

What's going to happen in one year when their funding runs out? Did anyone help them find JOBS!
Paul J Hulse April 20, 2014 at 03:24 AM
did you read wheee it says job tranning??? this is the soul purpose of this plan. helping oneRead Moreperson at a time....
CPO Rob April 20, 2014 at 10:24 AM
This gets me very concerned and angry. I worked for the State for 26 years at a reduced salary for Read Morethree reasons; 1) health benefits, 2) job security, 3) THE PENSION! To say it is an entitlement is wrong, it was a contractual agreement for the worker. He does not need his pension to live, I do.
Jack Doyle April 22, 2014 at 04:11 PM
On the other hand look up the word "entitles" means someone EARNED it and the benefitRead Morecann ot be taken away for any reason- it is contractual. Civil service laws were passed to assure legal GUARANTEES of the codified "entitlements"and cannot be plundered because an elected phoney official wants it that way.

Is that kind of like when you are traveling on The George Washington Bridge you are entitled toRead Moretrav el safely, and not be put in danger by lanes closures, which were done only because of a political agenda?
