SEASIDE HEIGHTS-The Seaside Heights borough council, in February, passed an ordinance to enact a 3% hotel tax on room rentals. Seaside Heights Councilman Christopher Vaz said the tax was suggested because the state was making the borough look for additional sources of income.
“Due to the fact that we have transitional aid from them and to cover the additional costs incurred from added police presence during the summer season,” Vaz said.
The council unanimously passed the resolution. A room costing $200 per night would net the township $6 in revenue daily.
