Brick Township to Charge Out-Of-Towners More For Beach Access in 2019

/

BRICK-Mayor John Ducey has announced that his administration will be increasing beach access fees for the 2019 season, including higher rates for non-residents.

Ducey introduced an ordinance to the township council to increase those fees at the last council meeting.

“This ordinance changes the beach fees for 2019 including providing a slightly higher rate for non-residents,” Ducey Said.  Ducey said he will take advantage of a Green Acres funding provision that will allow him to charge out-of-towners more to access his township’s beaches.

The daily beach badge rate will jump from $5 to $8.   Residents can purchase seasonal badges for $25, non-residents will be charged $35.

Despite the increases to beach access, Ducey added that the township will provide free beach access to veterans with valid identification.

Ducey said the increase was due to members of the community and council wanting to charge non-residents more to access the town’s barrier beaches.  The ordinance was passed on first reading and will be voted upon at the next town council meeting, allowing for public comment on the ordinance.
