BEACH HAVEN — At last week's Borough Council meeting, business was conducted as usual until it came time for public comment.

A number of residents shared their complaints and concerns about the approved Developer's Agreement between Hotel Beach Haven and the Borough.  It appeared that those who were in attendance were still upset at the narrow approval last month.

The next stage of the Hotel Beach Haven process, seeking approval from the Borough's Land Use Board is set for Monday, January 6. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and is being held in the Beach Haven Firehouse. Originally the meeting was set for Monday, December 2, but the applicant requested it be pushed back to the January meeting.
