The mayor of Point Pleasant Beach has dropped his controversial plan to open the town’s sole public beach to residents-only after Gov. Phil Murphy declared the practice illegal over the past week.
The borough of Point Pleasant Beach owns one single beach in town – the Maryland Avenue beach near the Bay Head border – while the remainder of the oceanfront is private. The bulk of the beachfront is owned by Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, which remains closed.

So it would be “illegal” to restrict the beach to resident only, but restricting the parking — which accomplishes the same thing — isn’t.
That’s why “The Law” is a joke.
These “drones” (politicians and bureaucrats) always find a way to restrict freedom.
Shouldn’t restricting the parking be just as “illegal”?
