Brenda Tascano & Jerry Nellessen we’re both extremely unprofessional when I inquired about certain ordinances. Brenda threatened to raised my fine as a result of me asking about a ticket I received. “You’re lucky I couldn’t given you the max of $250”. I felt her comment was inappropriate considering I’m sure they deal with questions of similar interest, daily! Jerry, then, confirmed that they do indeed “deal with this kind of thing all the time”. Jerry said to me “If you want to interrogate me you can come into the office”. Again, inappropriate. So, this compliant isn’t about the ticket (because I wasn’t aware of the ordinances myself), it’s about the level of professionalism these two lack. This incident happened today.

Thank you for your time!

Growing up in Beach Park has been a memorable experience. I consider my neighborhood a pretty safe one, and have loved growing up in this area. A few of my lifelong friends live in the same neighborhood, and we hang out when we can. I also really like the diversity here in Beach Park. My neighbors come from many different cultures and backgrounds, and it's cool to learn more about them.
Beach Park is a great friendly community. Great parks and great lake views! I've lived here almost my whole life and you really get to know everyone around here. Perfect summer vacation location if you plan on staying by the lake!
