Multiple residents and visitors of Beach Haven stood before the town council during the regular monthly meeting Monday, Aug. 10, to express their concerns regarding the borough’s beach replenishment, adding that many of them like the beaches “just the way they are.” The project, which was last said to begin shortly after Labor Day, has again been pushed back due to the dredge having to be redeployed elsewhere, Borough Manager Richard Crane announced. Officials expect it to return sometime between September and November, or as late as early December.

John Weber, a member of the Surfrider Foundation, urged the council members to think of themselves as customers of the Army Corps and N.J. Department of Environmental Protection. He suggested the ocean beach at Centre Street have a gentler slope because it is the “most populated beach” in town.

Local resident Doris Tuder said she was worried about steep inclines that would make it difficult for older people to get onto the beach.
