Mayor and Council formally cut the ribbon to open the beaches for the tourism season. Beach Patrol Captain Sandy Bosacco joined Mayor Walters with unlocking the ocean for the holiday weekend. Mayor Walters also formally cut the ribbon on the beach concession stands that return to the Stone Harbor beachfront for the summer. 2013 season.

The Borough continues with its major beach fill project through the holiday weekend.

The project will result in an expanded protective and recreational beach for the community and repair damage caused by hurricanes Irene and Sandy.
