The Brick Township council will discuss a new ordinance to address abandoned properties in the township as well as the potential sale of a liquor license at a meeting scheduled for Tuesday night.

The council is poised to vote on a resolution authorizing the sale of an additional liquor consumption license in town. The township has the ability to sell two additional consumption licenses, though a resolution calls for only one to be sold. A consumption license is the type held by a restaurant in order to serve liquor; liquor stores use a different type of license, known as a distribution license. 

In 2012, the township scuttled a plan to sell a distribution license, citing a soft market.

The council will also consider the introduction of an ordinance to define what determines whether a property in Brick can be considered abandoned, and procedures that should be followed once an abandoned property is identified.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex.

Personally I do not care if more liq licenses are sold. I do care when my taxes are increased. I stated it before when the mayor decided to stop the red lights, where will that revenue be made up? It has to come from somewhere. I think less people would be upset if the red cameras stayed in place then raising our taxes. Now I know the mayor hasn't stated he would yet, hopefully he doesn't. But like I said, you have to make up the $800+.

I guess John Catalano was FOR selling liquor licenses (when he was on Steve'e council) before he was against it. I guess John C is FOR the red light cameras even though they have increased accidents. If you have any idea of re-entering local politics you might want to reconsider.

Those cameras brought in almost $900 Million in revenue. .. camera's gone -taxes up.. nice trade... all smoke and mirrors.... with one seat open -who's running for it.. this year? Wonder who the Republicans are looking at for the next 4 seats?
