Beach badges for Ortley Beach and Shelter Cove are now on sale. Seasonal beach badges are $35 and $15 for seniors (must show proof of age).
Badges can be purchased at the Recreation Administration Office, 1810 Warren Point Road, or the Toms River Senior Center located at 652 Garfield Avenue, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In February, the governing body unanimously passed an ordinance that waives beach fees for all active U.S. military, military reservists and military retirees, their spouses or civil union partners and dependent children. You must present a valid military identification card to receive your beach badge.
