Point Beach Council Turns Down Snooki and JWoww

Council may consider charging for film permits

The Point Beach Council agreed unanimously on Tuesday night to not allow MTV to film the "Snooki and Jwoww" reality show on public property in town. 

Through the brief discussion about Mayor Vincent Barrella said perhaps the council should think about charging for film permits. They are now free, said Point Beach Business Administrator Chris Riehl.

He noted that the town charges the American Cancer Society to conduct a fundraiser on the boardwalk annually.

"And yet, MTV would get a free pass," Barrella noted, adding the council should think about developing a fee for film permits.

That prompted mention of the town's special event fees, which has been a controversial issue, especially regarding

Municipal Attorney Sean Gertner said there are now separate ordinances for public assembly and special events, but there should be one ordinance for both.

Barrella and some council members have said they don't think the Snooki and JWoww show will help improve the town's image. Kristine Tooker was the only council member absent, but she said in an email on Monday that she is against MTV filming the show in town.

Barrella noted that if MTV or any other outlet wants to film inside a home or business, the town has no say.
