Out-of-towners may have to pay more to hit the beach in Brick, but visitors will have one more season to save on badges.
Mayor John Ducey said this week that a committee of township council members is currently looking to increase fees for nonresidents to access beaches and parking areas. The changes would happen in time for the 2019 summer season.
“We can’t do it until 2019 because we started selling our ’18 badges before Christmas,” he said. “We’re allowed to charge up to double [for nonresidents], so what we’re probably going to do is charge more for the daily badges.”
A plan being discussed would raise the price of a daily badge from $5 to $8.
“Season badges and season parking and all that will have a price differential,” Ducey said.
As it currently stands, the price for a season badge in Brick is $25 and a season parking pass is $30.
