Tent City Hearing Adjourned

tent city hearing 3-15-13The Tent City hearing scheduled for tomorrow in Toms River, has been adjourned, Township Attorney Michael M. DiCicco tells TLS. 

The hearing with Judge Foster was to address the feasibility of the Township to remove approximately 50% of the current names on the Tent City list, as earlier reported.

Instead, officials will in the meantime attempt to settle it outside of court.

“We are trying to negotiate a resolution of the issues raised by the application,”DiCicco says. [TLS]

  1. I am quit offended by the very large cross that the Tent City residents put up, on Cedarbridge Avenue. This is government property and it should not be allowed.

  2. to I Object….This is what you have time to be offended by? Really? And government property doesn’t enter into it. Ever read the Establishment Clause of the Bill of Rights? Guess not, go know.
    Were you equally offended by the cross at Ground Zero, also Govt property. That cross made from girders from the Towers now is on display at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. I’m a Hebrew and I think it’s a magnificent tribute to all the fallen

  3. Alex , for what is saved in taxes, is paid for by the amount of charity care spent caring for these poor Tent City residents who lack indoor plumbing and sanitary facilities . These people are suffering from untreated addictions – drug and alcohol. A few have mental health issues that should be treated . So for what money is saved, these people suffer in miserly. It is time to close Tent City and bring these people back into the real world. Let Tent City go , and let us help them .I don’t know anyone who would want to live in a tent for years through the bitter cold, and unrelenting heat . Let them get help.

  4. You are showing total financial illiteracy. Comparing apples to apples, a $200/year tent is a lot cheaper than an $18,000 apartment/motel room (plus plenty of government overhead).

    By bulldozing Tent City you aren’t helping anybody – you are hurting the homeless, and you are hurting the taxpayers.

    I’ve written about this at great length elsewhere – here my posts will only be censored…

  5. To okay,
    Fine I have no problem with you taking care of them. I have no problem with the cross.
    Move them into your back yard, and have them destroy your property, have them smell up your house with there smoke, have them scare your children as they urinate on your property, have them stop traffic on a busy road in front of your house, have them lower your property value, have them waste your taxes with multiple calls to ems, pd, fd, sanitation,.., have your family member wake up in the middle of the night to go put out fires in there tents, have them smoke and take drugs in front of your children.

    When you do all of the above, than we can talk. Until then shut your mouth.

  6. Homeowner, I didnt say give them an American Express Gold Card. They should find work and pay 30% of their income until they can become self sufficent. People from otehr counties and STATES should go back to them and get assistance from them. Minister Steve accepted people from all over the country . I agree with the rest, and yes they do threaten the children.
    If you want to see what TC residenst are capable of – go check out the two houses on Vine Stree- totally destroyed with copper ripped out. Mentally ill people should receive in patient care until no longer a threat to others or themselves. Tent City mus be close. Find a way to get the state to pay for it. No one should be able to plop themselves anywhere and call it their home like Minister Steve did at TC. The paper doesnt even report half of what goes on in TC.
