LB Boardwalk Getting Sunscreen Dispensers

Newsday: Long Beach boardwalk will get sunscreen dispensers

“Long Beach City Council members have approved adding sunscreen dispensers on the boardwalk. City officials are adding the sunscreen dispensers using a three-year $90,000 grant from NYU Winthrop Hospital. Winthrop will pay the city $30,000 for the first two years to cover the cost of the sunscreen dispensers and $15,000 for the third year. Long Beach will also receive $5,000 each year for hosting the sunscreen dispensers. The resolution was approved during last week’s City Council meeting.”
