$2.1M in Sandy Aid for Pt. Pleasant Beach Boardwalk

Point Pleasant Beach will receive more than $2.1 million from the federal government to reimburse the town for the cost of repairing and rebuilding its boardwalk.

“When Superstorm Sandy tore through Point Pleasant Beach, it devastated a critical part of New Jersey’s tourist economy and an area that is home to millions of great memories.  This federal funding will reimburse the town for its swift work to rebuild the legendary boardwalk, and thanks to that work, people can now return and enjoy its beauty and attractions,” said U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg.  “However more work remains as many New Jersey and Point Pleasant Beach families are still rebuilding their lives and we’ll keep fighting to make sure they get all they need to recover.”

“Superstorm Sandy challenged New Jersey communities like Point Pleasant Beach like never before.  As the summer tourist season approaches, this federal funding is critical to helping Point Pleasant Beach recoup some of the expenses associated with responding to the storm,” said U.S. Senator Robert Menendez.

Most of the boardwalk was reopened this past weekend.  The rest is expected to open by Memorial Day.
