OCEAN CITY COUNCIL LOOKING TO ABOLISH LIFEGUARD PENSIONS

In an effort to cut costs, the Ocean City Council approved a resolution at Thursday’s meeting to lobby the New Jersey legislature to abolish pensions for newly hired lifeguards. Ocean City pays out over $160,000 annually for the pensions of 28 retired lifeguards, according to a report in the Ocean City Gazette. The resolution also stated that the city would grandfather in current pensioned employees, but it was in the best interest of the taxpayers to end the practice of paying pensions to seasonal lifeguards. The resolution now goes to the N.J. State Senate and Assembly.
