LAKE COMO, NJ — The noisy, disruptive conduct of summer renters last year will require three Lake Como landlords to reach into their pockets before the start of this season.

Under a resolution approved by the borough council on January 16, property owners of 2207 Main Street, 613 16th Avenue and 617 16th Avenue will need to post bonds to guard against additional quality-of-life violations with the arrival of new tenants this summer.

Last summer, at least four complaints were brought against the tenants in each of these rentals — setting in motion the process to require the landlords to post monetary bonds that could be as much as $5,000, according to borough regulations.

The governing body named attorney Eric Brophy of Wall as hearing officer for the proceedings where the bond amounts will be determined. Lake Como will be represented in these matters by borough attorney Marguerite Schaffer.

The bonds are intended to pay for damages to public and private property, fines and penalties and any other costs incurred by the borough associated with new incidents of disorderly behavior by summer tenants.

For the bond to be discharged, a summer rental property needs to be violation-free for four years.

According to property records, Jayant and Vaishali Shinde of North Brunswick own 2207 Main Street and Maria Shrout of Princeton owns 613 16th Avenue. Alexander Mihalkovitz, doing business as AEM@617 16th Ave Lake Como NJ, LLC, of Chino, Calif., is listed as the owner of that property.
