The mayor of Point Pleasant Beach has a unique problem and is advocating a controversial solution. The Borough of Point Pleasant Beach does not own its beautiful, ocean-front beaches. Instead, those beaches are the property of business concerns. So the town has the burden of providing services for a booming shore tourism industry…but has limited access to the money its beaches generate. Mayor Vincent Barrella wants the right to tax his tourists.
