“It’s bad out there, it’s real bad. It’s always been bad there,” said Flaherty. By Allison Perrine Also among discussions at the Aug. 27 meeting was the new reverse angle parking law, an idea originally brought for ward by the mayor to keep pedestrians safe. After hearing complaints about the law from residents, the borough will review the situation at the end of the summer season. Work will start sometime this fall and will have an estimated useful life of 10 years. At a recent meeting, Jack Flaherty of Monmouth Place questioned why the project would start at the north end of the pavilion because, according to Flaherty, sand typically travels south to north. Mayor Sue Howard said the starting point, known as the “hot spot” in the borough with the largest loss of sand, was determined by the Army Corps of Engineers. MONMOUTH BEACH – The Army Corps of Engineers will begin replenishing sand in Monmouth Beach this fall, starting at the north end of the Bathing Pavilion and continuing north for as far as funding will allow. At the Aug. 27 meeting Commissioner David Stickle said he is dissatisfied with the engineering work done by T&M Associates for the recently striped fire lane at the pavilion. According to Stickle, state law calls for 20-foot clearance and the work completed allows for about 19 feet 4 inches of clearance. Timing is perfect as beach replenishment is currently being funded at the federal level, Howard said, when in the past the borough had to petition for support from the state government and legislature for more sand. The original 50-year contract between the borough and the federal government allowed for the possibility of beach replenishment every six years. The borough’s recent law on reverse angle parking will be reevaluated after the summer season.Photo by Allison Perrine In June, resident William McGowan said he had a hard time maneuvering his way into the angled spot in the crowded parking lot. “The biggest problem is the line of traffic I was stuck in when I first pulled in. It’s like an automatic traffic jam. And that’s on a Wednesday,” he said at a June meeting. The borough will pay just over $1 million toward the project – 15 percent of the total cost – which includes the installation of sand and sediment as well as associated dredging, pumping and sculpting, the approved bond ordinance states. “We at one point waitedfrom 2004 to November of2011 to replenish.” Howardsaid. “This is a good thing forMonmouth Beach.” “You have to accommodate in some way the fact that people have big SUVs now,” said Stickle. “You need to account for that so there’s still 20 foot clear as a fire lane.” He suggested at the meeting that the borough not pay the bill until the work is corrected. If any restriping is done it will likely not be done until next spring.

But everybody knows what we need to do and what’s expected of them. The credit has to go to Doug, because he’s open enough to listen to all of us. We put together a good team, because every member is pretty good at what they do.“Doug listens to us, but he’s good at what he does, too. He delegates authority and he never panics. We’ve been together so long, we have a lot of trust in each other and that’s really important. We all represent the brand, we all care about it and try to move forward every day.“I’ve trained on my own for 30 years and have been with Doug since 2007 and couldn’t be happier or ask for a better work situation.” Jeff Mullins831038%50%$77,530 William Spawr1152045%64%$120,874 Mike Smith2742215%30%$386,640 Barry Abrams821025%38%$94,260 Jerry Hollendorfer362556%33%$174,792 Steven Miyadi1534220%60%$99,266 DORTMUND AND EXAGGERATOR IN SOLID WORKS‘TEAM’ KEY WORD IN SUCCESS OF TEAM O’NEILLDOLLAR DAY AGAIN AT SANTA ANITA ON MONDAY Drayden Van Dyke2832211%25%$140,200 JockeyMts1st2nd3rdWin%ITM%Money Won Victor Espinoza242318%25%$242,130 Kent Desormeaux3136510%45%$282,970 Peter Miller3552114%23%$176,380 Tiago Pereira251514%28%$118,602 David Lopez40721018%48%$233,328 George Papaprodromou1320215%31%$48,080 Abel Lezcano1821111%22%$86,570 Kristin Mulhall1342131%54%$150,100 John Sadler2122210%29%$102,750 James M.
