On Friday, May 22, 2020, the boardwalk will be open for walking and exercising. Bikes will be PROHIBITED AT ALL TIMES this summer on the boardwalk. Anyone using the boardwalk is asked to keep as far right as possible to increase distance while passing others, and continually keep 6 feet of separation from non-family members. The use of masks or face coverings are recommended in any social setting where proper social distancing cannot be maintained. Water fountains will remain out of service and the pavilions will closed. Benches will remain at this time, but proper social distancing must be adhered to. Anyone using the boardwalk should refrain from congregating or talking in groups that will impede others from walking by at a safe distance.

Orders are now being taken for season badges. There will be no direct sales of badges at this time, you must pre order and pay with check or credit card.

Details on the sales of daily and weekly badges will be available prior to June 20 opening date.
In compliance with state regulations, capacity will be monitored regularly to determine if it is necessary to reduce or restrict access to specific areas, or the entirety of the beach. If conditions and capacity at the beachfront become unsafe, the plan may be modified at any time by borough officials. This may include limiting the amount of daily badges sold on busy days, and possibly limiting access of seasonal and weekly badge holders if the beach is at unsafe capacity.
PROPERTY TAX GRACE

However, payments received after this date will accrue interest retroactive to the original due date of May 1, 2020. Also, for our currently enrolled direct withdrawal customers, the withdrawal occurred on May 1, 2020.
