Belmar Voters Reject Boardwalk Pavilion Bond Referendum

Belmar residents strike down a referendum asking them to borrow $7 million dollars to build two controversial boardwalk pavilions.

According to unofficial numbers, voters rejected the ballot question 1,041 to 756 Tuesday night during a special election held at the borough hall.

The ballot question was initiated by a lawsuit filed by opponents of an earlier plan approved by borough officials. The plans called for rebuilding Sandy-destroyed pavilions on 10th and Fifth Avenues.

In earlier WOBM reports, FEMA also approved $4 million in funding to replace the two boardwalks destroyed by Sandy and town officials were planning to use some of the funds raised in its buy-a-board campaign to help fund some of the cost.

According to NJ.com, the borough will reportedly proceed with plans to build a pavilion to house public safety operations at 10th avenue because they have a low bidder.
