On Saturday, October 20th, at 11:30 a.m. the film “Plastic Oceans” will be screened for the final time this year on LBI. Location is the Ship Bottom Firehouse, 2006 Central Avenue. Admission is free and refreshments will be served.
This Saturday, we hosted out annual Town Hall Meeting at the Firehouse. Over 120 taxpayers attended — our largest town hall meeting crowd to date — and got their questions answered about this year’s property tax reassessment process. We walked through the process, the Borough Plan and what you can expect over the coming months. Our guest speaker, Walter Higgins also handled the Q&A where questions such as do I have to be home for the assessment, what is the criteria, and how will this effect the value of my home were answered. You can see an overview of the presentation below.
We also covered the topic of Town Beautification. Our aim is to create a community-wide initiative to make Surf City the most attractive and inviting town on LBI. This will be a multi-year effort requiring a partnership between residents, business owners and the Borough. Many taxpayers voiced their opinions and ideas of where our beautification efforts should be focused.

We had people competing of all different ages and team sizes. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners were awarded in 6 different categories. 18 trophies are given out in total. Several families have made this their family tradition to compete during their Summer vacation!
