Cape May Freeholder and Sea Isle City Mayor Leonard Desiderio says “We’ll do whatever it takes to stop this ridiculous idea.”  Desiderio and other shore officials say the proposed law could mean massive property tax increases to cover the cost of maintaining the beaches and paying lifeguards.

Both Senate President Stephen Sweeney, a Democrat from South Jersey’s Third Legislative District and Michael Dougherty, a Republican who represents the 23d and the state’s northernmost legislative district, announced on Dec. 3 they would cosponsor bill S-2368.

The measure would require municipalities that accept storm aid to provide beach access and oceanfront restrooms to the public free of charge.
