AVON-BY-THE-SEA — The Avon Commissioners met Monday, Aug. 28 and discussed funds for a new beach playground, as well as changes to the liquor license code.
Two new ordinances were introduced with the first being a bond ordinance to provide improvements to the beachfront park and replacement of the playground. The ordinance appropriated $122,500 and authorized the issuance of $23,580 bonds or notes.
According to Avon Mayor Ed Bonanno, the borough will be receiving some state and county money which will “defray some of the cost.”
A public hearing and vote on adopting the ordinance will take place on Monday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m.
The second ordinance introduced is to amend the alcoholic beverages code.
“We will have a public hearing at the next meeting and my concerns at this hearing will address why I am voting no to this ordinance,” said Mayor Bonanno.
