Brigantine City Council Meeting. Sept 19, 2018

Most members of Brigantine City Council want to allow a small handful of homeowners to trim and modify the dune system adjacent to their beachfront homes. Councilman DeLucry is the only one to vote against, what he calls, one of the most asinine ordinances ever considered.

Council also mentioned their continued challenge with recording and posting these public meetings to YouTube. This technical issue has been going on for about 6 years. Thanks to all who pressured Councilmen Simpson, Sera and Riordan to turn the video feeds back on.
