Tax Hikes May Hit Homeowners Not Affected by Sandy

While thousands are still out of their homes thanks to Sandy, there may be bad news ahead for people who never had to leave their homes: tax hikes for homeowners who never saw a drop of flood water. News 4 New Jersey reporter Brian Thompson has the story from Little Ferry.

A New Jersey town is seeking donations to help rebuild its boardwalk destroyed by Sandy.

Belmar has launched its "Buy A Board" campaign.

Contributions range from $25 for "beach bums" to $5,000 for "big kahunas." Contributors will have their names and contribution listed at the beach entrance of their choice.

Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty says it's a great opportunity for people to become part of the reconstruction process.

The town is committing $20 million to rebuild its 1.3-mile boardwalk. The project includes 14,000 boards and 2,800 pilings.

The mayor is confident the boardwalk will be ready by Memorial Day.
