Will Belmar Raise Beach Fees to Help With Storm Repairs?

Belmar has been discussing the option of jacking up the price to get on the beach to aid in the cost of restoration from Hurricane Sandy. The town has made their final decision.

Belmar won’t be raising the price of its beach badges this summer after all.

They have dropped a plan to increase the cost of its daily and seasonal beach badges to help pay for repairs to the beach and boardwalk.

Mayor Matthew Doherty says Belmar has sold more than 2,600 beach badges already this year, up from just over 1,800 at the same point a year ago. That extra money, plus a lower-than-expected cost to rebuild the storm-battered boardwalk, will enable the borough to keep the current prices of $7 for a daily badge and $50 for the season.
