"We have the same borough architect working on the community center and that project is still before the state in the CAFRA permitting process," Kelly said.
Kelly has said the first floor of the pavilion would be used for storage of beach vehicles, the second floor would house the borough's new library and public bathrooms and that the third floor would serve as a lifeguard headquarters and also contain rentable space.
Mayor Dina Long said the original goal of having the library open by March is not likely to be met but that a contractor has been hired who has been working to design a door for the library and shelves that "will be fitting with the interior of the church." Some electrical work must also be completed.
The temporary library will have bookshelves, computers and a small children's section.
