A mayoral trip to a borough-owned marina in Belmar has ended up being a fortuitous one for local kayakers.
Mayor John Ducey said he recently took a tour of Belmar’s municipal marina to see how the operation in run – a sort of scouting mission to gather ideas for Traders Cove. One of the ideas the mayor came home with: kayak storage racks.
“You can rent them for the year, and that way you won’t have to worry about lugging them in your car, putting them through your SUV windows, all that crazy stuff,” said Ducey.
The cost of the racks will be minimal, as the township’s Public Works employees will be able to build them in-house, Ducey said. Construction on the racks was set to begin this week, and will take about three weeks in all to be completed.
