residents will not see increases in their beach parking stickers this year, town officials have decided.
Parking fees for all seven Oyster Bay beaches --Centre Island, Philip B Healey at Florence Avenue, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Ransom, Stehli, Harry Tappen and on the Atlantic -- will remain $50 for a seasonal parking sticker. The sticker is good at all the beaches all season.
Town resident military veterans or active military members, volunteer firefighters, auxiliary police and members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary get a reduced rate of $25.
Senior citizens, 60 and older, who have a town Senior Citizen Beach I.D. card, obtainable at the Town Clerk’s Office for a one-time fee of $25, plus a $2 photo fee, can receive a beach sticker at no charge. Similar discounts are available for the disabled.
The daily admission fee for vehicles without stickers is $15.
Non-residents pay considerably more to visit the town beaches.
The early sale of beach stickers will begin on Saturday, May 12, at Tobay and and John J. Burns Town Park. Stickers will go on sale at all beaches beginning Saturday, June 26.
Tobay, Centre Island, Philip B. Healey and Theodore Roosevelt Beaches will be open for weekends only beginning Saturday, May 26. All beaches will be open seven days a week from Saturday, June 23, through Monday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day). Fees will be collected between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Fees involving boaters aren't going up, either:
Launching ramp fees for boats using John J. Burns Town Park, Massapequa; Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park, Oyster Bay; and Harry Tappen Beach, Glenwood Landing, are also holding at 2010 levels.
The resident fee for a seasonal trailer sticker has been kept at $35, while the daily cost without a sticker is still $10.
The same is true for boaters who use the Joseph J. Saladino Memorial Marina at Tobay, where docking and similar fees are unchanged.
