As a full-time summer resident and an Ocean City homeowner since the mid-’70s, I was completely dismayed during a recent trip to the Boardwalk, which I normally stay away from like the plague.

Despite signs all over the place that face coverings were required on the Boardwalk, I estimate that about a third of everyone there went without a mask of one kind or another.

I don’t know whether the requirement has the force of law, but what good is it if there is no enforcement? If the city is not going to back up its own rules, then a lot of money was wasted in producing useless signs.
