Seaside Heights officials this week announced two upcoming points of interest for residents and visitors – 2024 beach badge sales and closed-circuit television scoping of borough storm sewers.

Beach Badges

Season beach badges will be available for in-person purchase on weekends commencing Saturday April 20, the borough announced. Those interested in purchasing badges can come to the Beach Control Office on the Boardwalk at Kearney Avenue between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

A revised fee schedule for 2024 badges has been in effect since Jan. 8. Older pre-season holiday badge prices were honored before Christmas Eve, however the new pre-season price will rise by $10 for an annual badge.

For 2024, season badges will cost $65 if purchased between through May 15, 2024, and $75 if purchased on or after May 16, 2024. The full-price fees increased overall by $5 over last season. Daily badges will rise from $10 per day to $13 per day; weekly badges will rise from $35 to $50. Senior citizen badge prices will remain unchanged at $15 each or two senior badges for $25.

Children 11-years-old and under do not need a badge to access the beach. Additionally, active and retired military personnel and their dependents can access the beach for free every day with the appropriate Common Access Card, Uniformed Services ID Card, DD-214, or Veterans Benefit ID Card issued by the VA. The borough also offers beach fee discounts throughout the summer, including promotional “Mom and Me” Days, “Dad and Me” Days, and “Bring a Friend” Days.

Sewer Scoping and Cleaning

The borough’s contractor, Sewer Rat Trenchless Solutions, began a $506,700 closed-circuit TV storm sewer evaluation and cleaning project on Thursday, April 4.

The project is scheduled to occur over 42 calendar days and involves evaluating 28,000 linear feet of Seaside Heights and Ocean County-owned stormwater conveyance piping and drainage structures.

Residents and visitors may see contractors working in and around the storm drains in town during the project.
