UPDATE: Point Pleasant Beach Councilman: Get Rid Of Saggy Pants On Boardwalk

Stephen Reid, a Point Pleasant Beach councilman, suggested that actions should be taken towards a dress code policy on Point Pleasant boardwalk.

By Mike DeMarco

Last year, they were staying out too late. Now one councilman says the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk visitors ain't dressing too great.

Stephen Reid, a Point Pleasant Beach councilman, suggested that actions should be taken towards a dress code policy on Point Pleasant boardwalk.

"We should get a dress code for our boardwalk," Reid said when the Point Pleasant Beach Council met on Tuesday.

No other council members commented on Reid's plan.

Reid was approached about the issue, he said, by local merchants and residents who said young men wear their pants too low while walking on the boardwalk.

"They wear their pants too low and it's not a proper look," exclaimed Reid. "This is unacceptable."

He said this has been an issue happening at multiple boardwalks in New Jersey.

"It's not just our boardwalk," said Reid, saying the issue has become bigger in Point Pleasant Beach lately. "This issue is happening all over Jersey boardwalks."  

Boardwalk merchants are taking action by asking people who don't dress appropriately to leave their establishments, Reid said.

"This is a family resort town and we want to keep it that way." replied Reid.
Councilman Reid plans on seeking what other towns are doing with this issue and inspect the effects of the ordinance passed.

Great question bobby its just sad you do not know the answer. I even recommended your question. One day you might wake up and be told you cannot do this or that. Then you might get where I am coming from but by then It will be too late. ---anonymous

While I detest some or maybe all the behavior seen on the Boardwalk, I don't see how more restrictions on our freedoms will solve the problem. I, at first, thought Concerned was being sarcastic. I just don't understand how certain individuals don't mind other people's freedoms taken away but scream when their own are taken away. I don't like the behavior of some so I remove myself from it. Typhoon get a grip! I'm sure Concerned and Typhoon would love it if those that disagree with them politically were banned from voting. Gotta love it.

Easy solution! Fence the boardwalk(s) and beaches and allow only paid, APPROPRIATELY attired MEMBERS access to your private club! Anyone remember mini-skirts, men's long hair, Elvis's swiveling hips? Get a grip...this too shall pass!
