Reacting to the summer reality of large crowds and partiers, Point Pleasant Beach Councilman Thomas Vogel encouraged residents to be vigilant if they are experiencing issues with unruly or loud neighbors.
Vogel was responding to concerns voiced by residents at the council's Tuesday meeting.
One resident voiced concerns over the apparent taxi routine in town, where cabs line-up in front of Jenkinson’s Aquarium, causing a huge line of vehicles and an even longer line of people.
The resident said he has seen the situation countless times, and has witnessed the large crowd causing a disturbance as they wait for cabs.Vogel told residents to contact police “in the moment rather than Monday morning” if they encounter problems with weekend partiers. Residents also have the option of reporting the problem anonymously, Vogel added.
