Ocean City May Require Permits For Boardwalk Musicians

A southern New Jersey resort town may soon require musicians to get permits before they will be allowed to solicit money on its Boardwalk.

Ocean City doesn’t have laws that govern these types of activities. But authorities tell The Press of Atlantic City that more performers are regularly attracting large crowds that can impede pedestrian traffic on the Boardwalk.

The permit proposal was introduced at last week’s City Council meeting and may be considered for adoption on Thursday. But officials say it remains a work in progress, and they haven’t decided how much to charge for a permit.

If approved, only musicians who solicit donations would need permits. People could still perform without a permit, but wouldn’t be allowed to accept anything of value in return.
