Two Belmar Ordinances Propose $22 Million for Hurricane Sandy Recovery

$20 million in boardwalk repairs, $2 million in sewer repairs, on tonight's agenda

Belmar Borough Council is expected to vote on $22 million in bond spending, for two projects to rebuild Belmar's infrastructure and tourism.

The 6 p.m. meeting of the council tonight will include a presentation by the mayor explaining the boardwalk reconstruction. So much of Belmar's boardwalk and pavilions were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, and the mayor has repeatedly said the borough will work to restore the boardwalk in time for the 2013 summer.

To that end, a $20 million boardwalk rebuilding ordinance is before the council tonight.

A second ordinance, at $2 million, would pay for sewer and water main repairs, specifically rebuilding the infrastructure for 13th Avenue.

The public hearing for both ordinances is scheduled before the council's vote.
