I was expecting tedium. Thank you for an energetic hour. Not only kept my interest, but I learned. One issue: to whom does one report violations, for example, dumping or building without a permit? I am in Ocean County and this is a constantly occurring issue. Not sure how to advise clients when abutting landowners transgress.
