The boardwalk construction well underway, Belmar will take the next step toward outfitting its tourist destination with businesses to shop at: temporary trailers.
The trailers were a solution after officials early realized replacing pavillions and oceanfront buildings would not be possible in time for the 2013 season, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty said.
The borough praised the possiblities of the trailers, in use in such places as Asbury Park's boardwalk, but said the hope is still to figure out plans for rebuilding the previous architecture for 2014.
At Feb. 20's borough council meeting, Belmar is scheduled to pass resolutions to buy several temporary trailers for the boardwalk bathrooms and businesses.
On the agenda:
- two mobile restrooms
- four mobile restroom trailers
- two office railers
- five kitchen/food concession trailers.
Borough Council meets 6 p.m. Feb. 20 in Borough Hall, 601 Main Street in Belmar.
