LONGBRANCH: After a successful first season, beach lockers and cabanas will be available for rent again this summer.
Bathhouses will also added this summer after Avenue's beach club donated them to the city.
The bathhouses are larger than the lockers and can be used for storage and changing and the city has about 160 available for rent.
"We had some people requesting just a changing-type of facility," Long Branch Business Administrator Howard Woolley said at the Jan. 26 council meeting. "We figured we'd give this a try and see if there was a demand."
Existing renters have the first right to renew their storage lockers for this upcoming season until March 1. After that time, they will be rented on a first-come, first-served basis beginning March 19 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Long Branch Recreation Center at 226 Broadway.
Thirteen of the city's 20 cabanas were rented last summer and 75 of the city's 120 summer lockers were rented.
Lockers are $375 per season, bathhouses will be $1,000 and cabanas are $2,750 for the summer
The three storage options will available to renters from Memorial Day through Labor Day from dawn until dusk daily.
