Ordinances Regarding Lot Transfers, Pet Laws on Council Agenda Tonight

Township council meets tonight at 7 p.m.

Brick Township will hear readings of several ordinances at tonight’s council meeting, including one which will see the transfer of property to a nonprofit company for use in special needs housing, and ones which will revise laws for sales of pets and enforcement of pet laws in the municipality.

Up for second reading and final adoption is an ordinance which may give authorization to Homes Now, Inc. to take possession of property at 425 Drum Point Road and 481 Herbertsville Road, in order to construct affordable housing for a total of eight local residents with special needs.

In addition, two ordinances, among several set for their first reading, seek to modify laws regarding the sale of pets in the township, and related enforcement codes.

The sale ordinance seeks to prohibit any pet store operator or pet store from selling, delivering, offering for sale, bartering, auctioning or otherwise improperly disposing of cats or dogs in the Township of Brick. However, the ordinance does not apply to legally existing nonconforming pet stores, or shelters, pounds or other establishments from keeping, displaying, selling or otherwise transferring any cat or dog that has been seized, rescued or donated.

Penalties for violating the ordinance are proposed to be $2,000 per each offense, 90 days of incarceration in the Ocean County Jail or 90 days of community service — as determined by a municipal judge.

The enforcement ordinance will see that all applications for pet licenses are properly filled out and signed by applicants, and kept on file for three months. At the same time, that information will be forwarded on a monthly basis to the State Department of Health, and any prior laws inconsistent with this ordinance will be repealed upon its passage.

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

So I have to ask, how is the afternoon meeting today with Chris Christie being considered a town council meeting if we are also having one tonight. What exactly makes this afternoon meeting a town council meeting rather than a Christie rally.

Jessica The Christie "Town Hall" gathering is at the Lake Riviera Middle School and is not said to be a Town Council meeting
Nicholas Loffredo June 26, 2012 at 01:46 PM
Right. The governor's visit is a "town hall" style meeting, as residents can ask questions. While Brick officials will likely be strongly represented, it's not a "Brick" meeting.

The "Town Hall" gathering this afternoon will not be on local topics at all it will be an all out assult on the Senate and Assembly - What has the Assembly Republican memebers do to cut back cost in this misappropiated s paln the Gov sent the assembly ? How does the Gov address the shortfall in his budget ? Why aren't the the mid class & Christie friends dealt evenly ? Why was the Stars Progeam short changed, again ? Stop the Farm Tax benifit on the political connected. friends. Mr.Gov CC please don't place tha blame on the Senate & Assembly but place the blame on your own Administration for this ill concieved budget plan. It must be hard to listen to your own retoric the story is getting old.

Sure its the town? Drum point is a county road
Joseph Woolston Brick June 26, 2012 at 10:52 PM
Depends on the road, county roads are often swept, today I past two on separate roads. If I remember right, township street cleaners are all white, the county sweepers are white with yellow cabs.

Simply stated, Christie's town hall meeting is more of a campaign meeting. And, from the sounds of it, Brick residents fell for all the campaigning tooth and nail.
