TRENTON-Last week, as part of a state run crackdown against boardwalk operators in Seaside Heights and Atlantic City, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal announced citations had been issued against 12 operators.
“Safe Summer boardwalk compliance efforts are underway along the Jersey Shore and initial inspections have found 12 establishments in two seaside towns that have allegedly violated state consumer protection laws and regulations,” the OAG said in a press release.
“For many families, a trip to the Jersey Shore isn’t complete without a visit to the boardwalk to enjoy rides and games, and perhaps purchase a souvenir,” said Attorney General Grewal. “We don’t want anyone walking away from what should be an enjoyable trip feeling like they, or worse, their children, were taken advantage of by rigged games or deceptive sales practices.”
His office however, refuses to announce which operators were in violation, casting a dark cloud across the entire Seaside Heights and Atlantic City boardwalks, leaving boardwalk vacationers in the dark.
Shore News Network requested copies of the citations as part of our initial coverage, but that request was denied.
“The information you have requested is part of an active investigation by the Division and cannot be released at this time,” according to Lisa Coryell, a spokeswoman for the Attorney General’s office.
Since the Safe Summer initiative began in 2014, LGCCC has issued183 citations alleging one or more violations against amusement games licensees.
