Resolution No.:17-46-D
Date: May 8th, 2017




Resolution opposing the proposed extension of the length of the summer season during which seasonal retail consumption licensees could sell alcoholic beverages


WHEREAS, S2606 sponsored by Senator Patrick J. Diegnan, Jr. (District 18, Middlesex) and the companion bill A1850 sponsored by Assemblypersons Thomas P. Giblin (District 34, Essex and Passaic); Wayne P. DeAngelo (District 14, Mercer and Middlesex); Raj Mukherji (District 33, Hudson); Jamel C. Holley (District 20, Union), and co-sponsored by Assemblypersons Joseph V. Egan (District 17, Middlesex and Somerset); Craig J. Coughlin (District 19, Middlesex); Annette Quijano (District 20, Union); and Angelica Jimenez (District 32, Bergen and Hudson) would extend by two months (from May 1 to March 1) the length of the summer season during which seasonal retail consumption licensees could sell alcoholic beverages; and,

WHEREAS, there are no seasonal retail consumption licensees in the communities represented by the sponsors and co-sponsors of S2606 and A1850; and,

WHEREAS, neither the sponsors nor co-sponsors have offered a valid basis to increase the term of the license; and,

WHEREAS, said extension would create undue hardship on the communities in which these eight (8) seasonal licenses exist, all of which are located in Monmouth County; and,

WHEREAS, the proposed time extension would in fact represent the de facto issuance of a use variance for those establishments that are located in a zone that does not permit the sale of alcoholic beverages, i.e., a residential zone, thereby disenfranchising the communities from regulating the existing non-conforming use and which in reality is an expansion of the non-conforming use, which is prohibited under the provisions of the Municipal Land Use Law, N.J.S.A. 40:55D-1, et seq.; and,

WHEREAS, S2606/A1850 would increase the costs for police services in the municipalities where these non-conforming establishments exist as the municipality would be precluded from utilizing the services of part-time Special Law Enforcement Officers to assist regular Police Officers in the enforcement of local ordinances and state statute and instead would have to appoint more full-time regular Police Officers; and,

WHEREAS, Assemblyperson David Rible, who represents the Borough of Brielle, has been a vocal opponent to the passage of these bills and we thank him for his responsiveness to the concerns expressed by his constituents.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Borough Council of the Borough of Brielle, that our opposition to the enactment of these bills be placed on the record.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a certified copy of this resolution shall be sent to Governor Christie, Lt. Governor Guadagno, Senator Stephen Sweeney, Senator Robert Singer, Assemblypersons Sean Kean and David Rible, and the sponsors and co-sponsors of S2606/A1850 as noted above, and Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
