No Beach Fees In Wildwood This Summer

Good news for lovers of the Jersey Shore. Not the now-defunct MTV reality series, the actual beach in the Garden State. Commissioners in Wildwood were seeking referendum to impose beach for 2013, but they’ve changed their minds. They’ve pulled the plug on the referendum and will instead enter into discussions on the implementation of shared services with the municipalities of Wildwood Crest and North Wildwood as an alternative solution to beach fees.

Wildwood mayor Ernest Troiano says, “We are excited and thrilled to be collaborating with the other municipalities on this solution. We are all working together for common goals. These goals include the preservation of tourism, the life blood of the island, and unifying and strengthening our municipalities’ budget issues and shortages.”

The three communities have agreed to form a Shared Service Committee, to include members or officials from each municipality and Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA) to work out and oversee the details on a Shared Services Plan for maximum benefit to all.

“There are always a number of possible approaches when it comes to addressing budget issues,” explains Commissioner Pete Byron. “Shared Services is a viable and financial solution that could work for everyone. With the Shared Services solution, the three municipalities would pool their efforts and assets and share various services, including, but not limited to, beach maintenance, lifeguarding, fire and police.
