Report: Potential setback with Seaside Park boardwalk reconstruction

    The reconstruction of the Seaside Park boardwalk may be in jeopardy of not being done for Memorial Day weekend or even the entire summer, according to a report on NBC10.

    Negotiations between boardwalk property owners, who plan to rebuild with private capital, and three leaseholders have hit a potential roadblock, the report states. 

    But the parties are still talking without involving lawyers, according to the report.

    Officials have hoped that the privately-owned Seaside Park stretch of boardwalk, which was destroyed by a massive fire in September 2013, would be ready by Memorial Day weekend.
