BrigantineNOW taxpayer feedback from Ann Wenitsky: It’s interesting that Brigantine Councilman Kern voted “no” two meeting ago regarding the bond ordinance and yet this time voted “yes” with no explanation on what the road improvements were to be. He also had no questions prior to voting yes. Raise a bond for $4 Million and leave it open as to what is to be improved?
As a taxpayer, I expect Council to know exactly what the road improvements are to be before voting yes. Also, there should be an exact breakdown as to what these items for the Fire Department are to be. There was no detailed breakdown of the fire equipment and trucks. When asked, answers were not specific.
Where was the Public Safety Director at this meeting? He should have been there to offer details or send a representative from the Fire Department on such an important issue.
Also the section of the Blvd that is not between 38th Street and Harbor Beach Blvd regarding the medial strip was not addressed. Mr. Purdy gave a good explanation of the plan when asked but because this is a county road I have concerns. I saw workers paving the medial strip with concrete the other day.
This is the entrance to the island and it should be beautiful and not look like an interstate highway.
