LAVALLETTE BEACH PLAN 2020

As of May 5, 2020, off season beach access is permitted for exercising, fishing, surfing, and sunbathing. No games or organized activities are allowed, and animals are prohibited as usual.

On Friday, May 22, 2020, the boardwalk will be open for walking and exercising. Bikes will be PROHIBITED AT ALL TIMES this summer on the boardwalk. Anyone using the boardwalk is asked to keep as far right as possible to increase distance while passing others, and continually keep 6 feet of separation from non-family members. The use of masks or face coverings are recommended in any social setting where proper social distancing cannot be maintained. Water fountains will remain out of service and the pavilions will closed. Benches will remain at this time, but proper social distancing must be adhered to. Anyone using the boardwalk should refrain from congregating or talking in groups that will impede others from walking by at a safe distance.

The Lavallette Beach will open for the summer season on Saturday, June 20, 2020, when lifeguards will be on duty and beach badges will be required. Lavallette does not require beach badges or parking stickers until June 20, 2020.

Orders are now being taken for season badges. There will be no direct sales of badges at this time, you must pre order and pay with check or credit card. The order forms are available from the Borough website (www.lavallette.org), in the lobby of Borough Hall, or in the Lavallette calendar. After your order is received, you will receive a phone call to arrange for pickup of the badges prior to the opening date of June 20, 2020.

Details on the sales of daily and weekly badges will be available prior to June 20 opening date.

In compliance with state regulations, capacity will be monitored regularly to determine if it is necessary to reduce or restrict access to specific areas, or the entirety of the beach. If conditions and capacity at the beachfront become unsafe, the plan may be modified at any time by borough officials. This may include limiting the amount of daily badges sold on busy days, and possibly limiting access of seasonal and weekly badge holders if the beach is at unsafe capacity.

  

PROPERTY TAX GRACE PERIOD EXTENDED
The Borough of Lavallette has extended the grace period for the property tax bills that were due on May 1, 2020, to June 1, 2020. The Borough wishes to provide ample flexibility to our tax payers during this difficult time, but we are bound by state law regarding tax payment timelines. In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, the State has provided municipalities with the option to extend the deadline until June 1, 2020.
 
Please be advised under this extension, no penalties or interest will accrue to this payment as long as it is paid by the June 1st deadline.  However, payments received after this date will accrue interest retroactive to the original due date of May 1, 2020.  Also, for our currently enrolled direct withdrawal customers, the withdrawal occurred on May 1, 2020.
