Local Government is Destroying Fabric of Community & A Century of History

Mount Arlington – Earlier today, the Hillard Beach Community Association and approximately 30 local residents near Bertrand Island, home of the former famed amusement park venue, filed a lawsuit against the Borough of Mount Arlington, NJ.  The Borough passed an ordinance to sell the local beach on Lake Hopatcong for development.  The residents have been begging the governing body to not destroy their community by selling the only public beach in the area that the community has used and enjoyed for over a century.

HBCA spokesperson, Melanie LeSueur, said, “we have been locked in an on-going struggle to stop the municipality from seizing our property rights and taking away this beach – a crown jewel of our local community and an integral and central part of the community life.”  HCBA and approximately thirty-area residents hired former NJ State Bar President Thomas Prol, chair of the real property practice group at Laddey, Clark & Ryan, LLP in Sparta, NJ, to fight for their rights.
