What else is new. Only Barnegat has one meeting a month, and they have a record of cancelling it. Just they will have to wait to but the two used motor cycles from Manahawkin. Its not getting any better folks

Dear it could be me: I apologize for the cancellation, but didn't want to put anyone at risk traveling in adverse conditions. However, I must point out that I have been on the committee for over a year, and this is the first cancellation I have seen, so I am not sure what you are referencing when you suggest same. That said, in fact there will be a proposal presented to the township committee regarding the excellent opportunity we have to purchase two fully police equipped 2006 Motorcycles for the sum of $11,000. I believe these motorcycles, if approved by the committee, will assist the police in serving our fine citizens, especially in locations that do not accommodate vehicles like the rail trail, and during events like 4th of July and Pirates Day. Regards, Susan McCabe Mayor

Mrs McCabe, thank you for your response. I have to agree with you on one issue, that the safety of the people come first. saying that, if you look at the last two years of meetings, the Twp did in fact cancel 3 meetings. And had 3 meetings on a Friday afternoon at 4pm. that gives the impression that ---maybe something is being done without imput of the fine people of Barnegat. I am in support of our fine police dept 100%. I would rather see another officer put on the force, not two used motorcycles. If you look at Kelly bluebook you will see that the cost of motorcycles of this type are worth about $9,000 each. so I would think getting 2 at $11,000 is not a bad deal. But do we need them, I really don't think so. Not at this time anyway. Things are not that good in Barnegat at this time, we all have to start saying NO once in awhile. Again thank you for your comment, Im glad you responded

We have seen a plethora of gas guzzling SUV's bonded for over the past few years. $11,000.00 for used motorcycles is simply unwarranted. These motorcycles are 8 years old. Their reliability is certainly questionable. And why do we need two? If you must purchase a motorcycle, then buy one new complete with factory warranty, new tires, brakes, etc. It is time to modernize. Sensors, cameras and more 21st century technology that will free cops up to get the drug scum off our streets. Get to work. You are being paid.
