Ventnor Fishing Pier, Atlantic Ave speeding and beach-tag checkers. Just a sampling of topics at the recent Ventnor Commissioners meeting of July, 9, 2020.
According to Commissioner Landgraf, Ventnor Fishing Pier having a few issues at night. Sometimes in the early morning, too.
Anglers seem to be sneaking in. Jumping the fence. Maybe slipping in with a friend.
Ventnor Fishing Pier is located at Cambridge Ave and the Boardwalk. It measures 1000 feet and is the longest of New Jersey’s ocean fishing piers.
Maybe the pier master shift should start at 6a, instead of 8a? Mayve open the fishing pier earlier? Take advantage of changing tides. Better for fishing.
Maybe we hire a night pier master for Friday and Saturday, 8p-mid?
