If you lay out on the beach in Seaside Heights, new ordinances have been passed that will change things up a bit this Summer

  • Lifeguards and badge checkers will now be staying on duty until 9p on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

According to Borough Administrator Christopher Vaz says it's about safety for night swimmers, and that “We’re trying to get a handle on the problem of dozens and dozens of people lining up at 5 p.m. to wait for the beach attendants to go home, then carrying large coolers of beer and liquor on the beach"

  • E-cigarettes are now banned from the beach
  • Coolers, barrels or tubs on the beach that exceed 24 inches in length, or have a capacity of 36 quarts are now prohibited
  • The size of tents on the beach has also been regulated. Baby tents that are up to 36-inches by 36-inches, and canopy tents up to 10-feet by 10-feet, but without side walls are allowed.

During the week, lifeguards and badge checkers will stay on until 6p. Check out Shorebeat for the full story
