(Feb. 9, 2018) -- The Middletown Town Council spent a majority of its Feb. 5 meeting focused on getting to a vote on two issues: the Town Council Beach Subcommittee’s recommendations for improving Second Beach’s overcrowded parking lots, shores and insufficient facilities for the amount of people who use it yearly, and a proposal to amend a zoning ordinance that would affect a quarter of all residents.

In July 2017, an overnight break-in at two of the beach offices resulted in the theft of $6,300 in cash, and about 1,000 seasonal beach parking passes.
