Went to the Fair the other night, and walked though the county building were all the towns have up displays. Stanhope's display was one big advertisement for Bells Mansion. I was just wondering who got free dinners to use that space as a big advertisement for one business in town?

What did you want them to do put up an advertisement for the outrageous property taxes? How about a sign about the incompetent mayor and council?

The point is who on the council got a free meal to advertise for Bells mansion?The display is for the town to use,not to advertise for a busness. The county should just take that building at the fair and rent the spaces to local businesses if this is what is going to be on display anyway.

Everyone has an opinion of the Fair display. "John" and "Stanhope Citizen" should put their money where their mouth is. VOLUNTEER to construct and post next years Fair display for Stanhope. Do something constructive instead of Flapping your gums.

I may be a bit out of touch but what has been done, or not done, to justify the comment that the Mayor & Council are "incompetent?"

I agree the Display is not to be used as an advertisement for one business in town.If Bells Mansion wants to promote there business they should set up a food stand there next year.

Stanhope has the third highest effective tax rate in Sussex County and the mayor and council are doing nothing to address it. The downtown area is an ugly disgrace. There are no new businesses in town except for the gym where Shelbys used to be. I would classify that as "incompetent".

Ya might as well move to Sparta or one of those "nicer" towns for the taxes your paying around here...and their esthetics laws are VERY strict so you would not have to put up with the distasteful and disgusting view that is everywhere you look around here...what people and businesses do in Netcong and Stanhope would NOT be tolerated in a classy and more upstanding area!!

Good point Fred, I would say that the display wasn't in the best interest of the other businesses and the town in general. SC; it's to bad that after all the work that was invested in downtown, paving, sidewalks, lights, we have some buildings looking pretty shabby. Maybe the town can do something to assist? Just sayin.

I'm not familiar with the county tax rates but I accept your statement as factual. Interestingly enough I got my 2013 final and 2014 estimated tax bill, I get the difference between "rate" and "invoice amount", yesterday and my taxes reduced by about $400. However this is because my land value dropped by almost 50%. I still haven't figured that out yet and will probably call the assessor.
