POINT PLEASANT BEACH — The Non-Resident Taxpayers Advisory Committee has scheduled its ninth meeting at Point Pleasant Beach High School for August.
The meeting is set to be held on Aug. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. Residential and commercial property owners in Point Beach who pay property taxes but are not eligible to vote in local elections, as well as full-time residents, can come to listen to nearly a dozen speakers discuss what is happening in the municipality and ask any questions that come to mind.
Roughly 45 percent of the taxpayers in the municipality are non-residents.
“I founded this 11 years ago and we are the only town that has a committee like this,” chairman Seth Sloan said. “It is an event not to be missed.”
Among speakers expected at the meeting are Mayor Paul Kanitra, a council member, the town engineer, representatives in real estate, leaders with local first response agencies including fire, police and first aid, as well as representatives of Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, the Point Pleasant Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Cultural Arts Committee.
“The speakers are up there for an hour, along with my master of ceremonies, Vic DeLuca, who is the former mayor of Maplewood and a member of the committee. We have 16 committee members,” Mr. Sloan said.
The committee consists of professionals from various career fields.
