Point Pleasant Beach bars will be able to stay open until 2 a.m bringing an end to an heated battle between the town and Jenkinson's.

The Council voted to amend an ordinance that would have shut them down at midnight.  The new closing time goes into effect immediately.

In December, the Council and Jenks reached an agreement in which the Council would allow the bars to resume 2A.M. closings in exchange for financial support to re-build the boardwalk which was damaged by Sandy.

"The agreement is that Jenkinsons and their entities have agreed to drop all litigation against the borough and they have stepped up and offered to pay up to a million dollars to repair our boardwalk. FEMA will pay a portion of it as well," said Pt. Beach Mayor Vincent Barella at the time.

The Council hopes to have the boardwalk up and running by Memorial Day Weekend.
