Well things went awry for a homeowner in Toms River, New Jersey after he was cited for code violations when 85 people were at his home for a swimming party.
Jay's Bus Service, a company that runs school busses, dropped off 85 children at his pool between 1:30pm and 2:30pm on July 16th.
“The township has ordinances in place which prohibit daily rentals of houses and swimming pools in residential neighborhoods" Mayor Maurice Hill released in a statement, "As mayor, it is my job to enforce these ordinances and I remind our residents that any similar violations will be addressed in the same manner”.
The unidentified homeowner was issued two summonses; Failure to Obtain a Permit For Commercial Use of a Private Pool, and Renting a Swimming Pool. He has a court date on August 10th.
The event did not violate any COVID regulations, because New Jersey is currently allowing 500 people to gather outdoors at a time.
Authorities said the investigation was ongoing but that no violations of town ordinances have been seen at the home since the incident on July 16.
