This is my response to a letter you received a couple of weeks ago. Yes, I agree it is healthy to ride your bike, but not to the beach. How can you carry your beach bag, umbrella and cooler?
The only way it would work out is if you live a block or two away from the beach.
I strongly disagree with the beach pass increase. Having the senior citizens paying $10 (for the first time ever) is not right. They need to save their money for more important things.
Increasing the pass to $30 is not right either. The Town Council should have had a meeting about this before they increased it.
I go to the beach quite often but $30 is too much to charge for a small beach whose water is not that clean all the time and the sand is quite rocky.
Let’s enjoy the summer at our town beach paying the same as last year.
