Council Agenda Tonight Includes Possible Amending of Parking Regulations

Governing body to meet tonight at 7 p.m., at municipal complex

Brick Township's Council will hold second readings and final hearings of ordinances at tonight’s meeting, which will revise laws for parking on certain streets in the municipality if they are passed.

The first ordinance seeks to set a fee of $1 per hour to park an automobile in the Ocean Beaches area from April 1 to October 31. Additionally, a seasonal parking sticker issued to senior citizens from the township would be made valid from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. from April 1 to October 31, for the year it was issued.

The second ordinance would seek to prohibit parking on certain streets, unless a township-issued permit is prominently displayed by motorists. The streets where this would be applicable under the ordinance are Monmouth Avenue, from Mantoloking Road to Lynnwood Avenue; Manchester Avenue, from Mantoloking Road to Lynnwood Avenue; and Sterling Avenue, from Glenwood Avenue to Fairfield Avenue.

The council meets tonight in the on Chambers Bridge Road, at 7 p.m.

that's great; however I guess nobody would be allowed to have friends and family over anymore that live on those streets without getting ticketed...

What is with you politicians not only in Brick but other shore towns as well. The traditional beach fee/parking season was from Memorial Day to Labor Day and fini, done. Oh no you can't be happy with that you keep extending the season. Like we need any more fees/taxes/levies! I know there's five of you that don't care as your careers with Brick are done for good in a little over a year. So that leaves the rest of you Town Council members to thwart these fees and return to the traditional norm or find yourselves out the door as well next go around. What don't you politicians understand? We are taxed and fee'd to the max. KNOCK IT OFF!

Take away the taxi license until they find a bigger building with enough parking for the growing business.
can't say who August 08, 2012 at 01:32 AM
They dug up and removed the blacktop and put up the lot they own next door up for sale. Guess they are moving. Anyone have an idea where. I assume they need approval to move their license somewhere else.

Yet the promises made, have yet to be addressed. This council refuses to deal with the real problems they said they would, Art continues to praise his idol, life continues to spiral downward in Brick.
Donna Carlin August 08, 2012 at 12:14 PM
Wouldn't it be nice for locals to enjoy the beach after season, without paying to park!
Riverdweller August 08, 2012 at 12:18 PM
Does the parking sticker issued to seniors allow them to park for free?
Jerry Kennedy August 08, 2012 at 12:18 PM
Must they take every dime for their treasury. The beaches should be free in the fall and winter months. A dollar an hour for parking is obscene. The ticket cameras are making a fortune for this town. Why stick us with another fee.

Just another nuisance tax ..Remember all these elected officials promised to reduce taxes/cut spending, including Acropolis.. his campaign slogan was …… “Brick’s Tax Payer Team” …wake up and start doing the hard work of governing and control spending and payroll. Your friends and relatives will forgive you over time ............. but we will not

I'd like to see F cove reopened after Labor Day or the 15th. so it can be used with less impact to the environment. I would think that it would not impact the quality of the water and landscape but would improve the quality of life. I propose free parking at F cove from 9/15 -5/15. Would not cost a dime to do so.....

They should eliminate Parking Passes... Everyone should pay $1/hr... Those parking lots should be generating income or profit... they are separate from the beach whereby towns can't make a profit on the beach. The only charge $15 for the season parking pass for senior citizens who already get a FREE pass for the beach!!! Everyone else has to pay $30 for the season parking pass.... that is called descrimination!! Pandering to the senior citizen voters.. Therefore, just charge $1/hr...

Prime example: Council must be out of touch with reality in Brick. Tonight is a Council meeting, whereas most of the citizens will be at Winwood Beach enjoying the entertainment and fireworks. Great scheduling, no?
LAST NAME NOT TRUMP August 08, 2012 at 02:22 PM
What's next in this town??? A fee to breathe? And if they want to charge to park on the street why $1/hr? Not everyone in this town is a friend of the mayor and not everyone has $ to throw around. And of course it would be the same night as Winwood beach fireworks! That's called crowd control. What a bunch of idiots!! Can't wait for them to be out. And that day is coming. They have dug their own hole that they will never get out of!
Don Smith August 08, 2012 at 03:32 PM
If the parks in my area charge $1/hour it should be so in all town owned lots including city hall. Why should they park free. Shame how this has cut down on kids crabing at Bay side park. But now they have more time for video games.
Don Smith August 08, 2012 at 03:33 PM
$1 for off hours is silly.
sunset August 08, 2012 at 03:54 PM
...and I'm sure, when you're a senior citizen, you won't accept any consideration. Give us a break, junior!
Vin C August 08, 2012 at 03:55 PM
This is what happens when we elect idiots to run our town.
Jacob Knowitall August 08, 2012 at 04:00 PM
Revenue is needed. Pay the fee and enjoythe services
JD August 08, 2012 at 04:15 PM
I agree... I'm a big believer in "fee for service"... especially of things that ALL taxpayers don't utilized... like the beach, beach parking, etc. But, they should run it as a profit center... not policital ways to "buy" votes from senior citizens perse.
JD August 08, 2012 at 04:17 PM
Go somewhere else to park... If those parking lots had townhouses built on them instead... Brick would be getting more in tax revenue from that then what they get from the parking fees!!!
JD August 08, 2012 at 06:25 PM
sunset... You already get a "free" beach pass... I didn't take that away... but the parking.... same for all... $1/hr!!!
Deb August 08, 2012 at 09:39 PM
Totally agree! This is getting sickening! People with little money who want to enjoy the beach with their family, or alone, in the winter now have to pay to park?!! It should be free in the winter! Outrageous!!! Vote them all out!!
Don Smith August 09, 2012 at 12:29 AM
How about those who park to enter the beach pay the fees. Parking tor crab or enjoy the sunset of access to the water are different. Don't hide beach fees in the form of parking. People who want to crab or have access to water should not be in the beach web of fees/
Don Smith August 09, 2012 at 12:32 AM
Agreed but if I have a car that does not fit on my lot there is no public space to park without a fee. Now where you live can you park off your owned lot without a fee? Why is it different for me then you? I have been on my bl;ock since 38 paying to support the town. You think your better then I or what?
Don Smith August 09, 2012 at 12:35 AM
So why are people parking by the Mantoloking bridge not paying $1 per hour to park in a park but the place near my home wants $1 per hour 24/7 356? In what way is this just? Please explain.
