I’ve learned you’re about to find out first hand how right you are.

A summons is on the way charging you with “making wisecracks against the duly elected government of Red Bank”.

Of course you’ll be found “not guilty” with a First Amendment defense.

Start working on your defense to have this charge dismissed outright or have the $15 ready…cash.

They should just give tickets for unlicensed LIVE dogs.

Then they don’t have to keep track of which formerly licensed dogs are still alive.

And you’d be getting a ticket for a real violation.

Failure to help make a LS employee’s busy work easier shouldn’t be a violation.

Then the right forms were sent to us. I wonder why that stopped?

It’s bad enough to go through the loss of a beloved family pet – you don’t need to be made into a criminal on top of it. I’m glad I don’t live in Little Silver – it sounds like it’s being run like a police state. Shame on them for putting her through all that extra grief and especially for charging her that $15. That’s really low.

Is the town so broke that they need to issue $5 fines for failure to inform the borough of deceased pets even though there is no such municipal law requiring the notice??

She did what was required of her every year prior. There was no indicattion on the town ordiance to advise if dog had died, ran away, gave away..etc. Does government really need to kmow every detail of our lives?

The issue is the fact that the ordinance holds individuals to something not explicitly stated as required.
