SEA BRIGHT: With the first season of paid parking in the books, borough officials are looking to perfect the system for next year.
The paid parking system began in late May and ran through Labor Day and generated $221,929, according to Borough Administrator Joseph Verruni. The total expenditures related to the system were $113,723, resulting in a net profit for the borough.
"All in all, for the first year, it paid for itself and then some," Verruni said.
The revenue generated did not include parking violations, which did not go into effect until the second month the system was operational .
