Avon Pavilion Subject At Public Meeting Monday

Embattled restaurateur hopes Board of Commissioners will reverse lease decision

Two weeks after the Avon Board of Commissioners terminated its lease, the representatives and supporters of the Avon Pavilion hope the governing body will reverse its decsion during its public meeting Monday.

The board is scheduled to meet at borough hall beginning at 7:00 p.m.

. But the two sides came to no concrete agreement, said Dennis A. Collins, Wall Township-based attorney for Fishman.

Collins, in a strongly worded letter sent to the borough, gave the board until Monday night to reverse its decsion or face legal action.

The terms of the lease should be in line with what is customary when towns lease ocean front property. Who would have a problem with that? Unless they were the recipient of a lopsided agreement.

Can they argue that it is NOT ocean front property since the other building was in front of it?

I will be there. It is ridiculous to have been going into the 7th year of a 10 year extension of the original lease to have the borough all of a suddne yell its illegal.

The agreement was locked in for 25 years? A 5 year lease with two 10 year options? That's sounds a bit one-sided. Then there is the problem of the whole place being totally destroyed, not just damaged. Mr Fishman comes by with HIS plans and expects Avon to rebuild it to HIS plans? Again, a bit one-sided. Contract Law is a whole area of law. Many lawyers specialize in nothing but contracts. This is why we have lawyers and courts. Let it go to court and let a judge decide. Unless the whole thing is one-sided and Mr. Fishman knows it.

25 years at $30,000 dollars a summer who wrote that sweetheart deal? Boardwalk concessions of that size are easily 55-75,000 rental per summer.Why would the town build a 500k new building to rent it for 30k a summer makes no sense to me. Why did mr fishman get a monopoly on our ocean front?
