Thank you Long Branch for leading by example.

This Jersey Shore town will be offering residents FREE Summer parking and there is one thing we have to say: HALLELUJAH!

The free parking will be at the Chandler and Maps municipal parking lot and will be a first-come, first-serve type of system.

All of the details are still being figured out but city officials plan on making it mandatory for parkers to show ID proving that they are a Jersey Shore resident.

It is so nice to see a Jersey Shore town that does not use EVERY SINGLE OPPORTUNITY to capitalize and cost their own residents money to visit the beach.

The relaxing scene of the beach is not even man-made so why should every aspect of spending a day at the beach cost you?

Well done, Long Branch.
