Highest property taxes in the country about to get a little higher. In related news it is expensive to have your entire infrastructure almost completely destroyed every 20 years or so.

They've been talking about this for a couple days now....Steve Sweeney is asking for property taxes throughout the state be raised in order to help rebuild homes that were lost. The problem with that as some citizens have pointed out is that alot of these lost homes are secondary homes or rental property businesses or millionaire shore houses where insurance should be bailing them out instead of property taxes. Also alot of people have problems with rebuilding the beaches because there are many private pay to play beaches or private property beaches and very very few public beaches. I don't think Christie is the one who floated this idea....i believe the idea to bail out the loss of the privledgeds million dollar homes came from the state senate presidents office.

That is crazy, whiy is it the Government's responsibility to rebuild private property or beaches? So my taxes are going to go up so that some millionaire can get his beach front 2nd home rebuilt on my dime?

FTA states that the property tax hikes will occur in areas affected by the storm. It doesn't say anything about the rest of the state.

In NJ, the state owns the beaches. A private owner can own ACCESS to the beach, up to the high-water line. Anything below that is the state's. That's why you have to pay to get onto the beach from the boardwalk--you're paying for the access. If you can get onto the beach from a public access point, or even via the water, nobody can say boo.

From NJ's DEP public access handbook: "The private land owner may not legally prevent the public from using lands below the high water line."

And, although many of the houses destroyed here are rentals and 2nd homes, there were a LOT of primary residences that were lost. Average, middle-class people who live here year-round in their only home. I was lucky and was spared all but cosmetic damage (lost a gutter and some siding). Friends and other people in town, especially people I know in Mantoloking , Seaside, and Island Heights? Not so much.

For beaches, they provide a barrier to the remainder of the state.
