BRICK-The Brick Township Council recently passed an ordinance that will permit all veterans of the United States Armed Forces to enjoy all of Brick Township beaches for free.
“The Council and I have a great appreciation for the service of our veterans and we are proud to be able to offer this small token of our appreciation to them,” said Mayor John G. Ducey. “I will enthusiastically sign this ordinance the moment it reaches my desk and make this the law in Brick Township. I thank Council President deJong and the Council for giving me that opportunity.”
Any veteran of the Armed Forces, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, will be exempt from daily beach badge fees for the township’s three ocean beaches and Windward Beach. Veterans will have to show their DD214 paperwork at the beach to be exempted from the daily badge fee. Veterans do not have to be Brick residents to be exempted from the fee.
The township has granted free access to the beach to veterans on July 4th the past three summers.
