Make Allowances

Sep 06, 2017

To the Editor:

The policy regarding lost/misplaced badges is a problem, especially for first offenders who own homes, pay taxes and donate to the community. I have heard several stories in which this policy to not replace lost badges has affected other homeowners.

I empathize with Mrs. Hermann regarding this issue (“Relax Badge Policy,” 8/23). Mrs. Hermann has been living on this island since 2004 and buys multiple badges for the season, spending $300 each year.

Long Beach Township should make allowances for homeowners who are good citizens. Some understanding and appreciation for residents who pay taxes should be taken into consideration. The law should be flexible and the township should put some trust its citizens.
