A team with Middletown Department of Public Works was busy installing lifeguard stands this morning at Second Beach, a clear sign that warmer sunny weather is on the way.
A team with Middletown Department of Public Works installed lifeguard stands this morning at Second Beach. No simple operation, each wooden chair must be carried onto the Sachuest Point Road beach by a heavy-duty John Deere truck and put into a deep hole dug by a backhoe, leveled and balanced so it lasts through the summer. Some of the chairs are entirely new, while others are repainted and repurposed from prior seasons. The beach season starts officially in Middletown on Saturday, May 29.
