Officials fear the insurance liability and the risk of fire on the wooden span.

Mayor Ernie Troiano Jr. tells The Press of Atlantic City people sue "at the drop of a dime" and nobody is responsible for their actions.

Commissioner Anthony Leonetti is worried that overheated hoverboard batteries could burn down the boardwalk.

The town's commission is expected to consider an ordinance this week.
