Point Pleasant Beach Council To Residents: Be Vigilant

Written by Elizabeth Q. Herlihy

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.

Yes, recent new owners moved into the boardwalk area knowing that it would be a marti gras type atmosphere. Heck, a few of them probably participated one time or other themselves. However, they have a right to expect even bar hoppers conduct themselves with a modicum of decorum. Usually, police presence reminds those who are a bit loud, to keep it under control. Tickets those who still can not keep it down will help to pay for the extra patrolmen. A portable jail would serve as a good deterrent as well.

We're talking about taxis that are over 200 feet from the nearest house. This is just a rediculous bunch of whiners and complainers who have nothing better to do with their time.
