EXTENDED BEACH OPERATIONS
Via Resolution 2020-214, the Borough has decided to extend the summer beach season to September 30, 2020. This means that Monday through Friday there will be no cost to enter the beach after Labor Day, and the Borough will follow its Rough Surf Management procedures and the BBPD/OEM will monitor the beaches, close certain ones down if necessary, but swimming will be allowed unless an imminent storm or danger exist. Signs and flags will be posted to notify beachgoers and swimmers of the current conditions of the various beaches. Also, since there will be no Lifeguards on duty, Monday through Friday’s, the Chief Lifeguard is assembling a Rapid Response Team that will be able to swiftly go into action and respond if there is a swimmer in trouble. During Saturday’s and Sunday’s, there will be the normal fee in effect and the Beach Manager, Lifeguards, Gate Guards and Cashiers will be on duty. The Borough will continue to honor season badges and the sale of daily badges will continue to remain low and sold through Viply. Beach Locker access has been extended, weather permitting. All lockers should be emptied by the end of the day, Sunday, September 27, 2020.
