BELMAR - Voters in Belmar head to the polls Tuesday to cast ballots on whether the borough should borrow $7 million to restore two boardwalk pavilions destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

Proponents say restoring the structures is worth the money, while opponents say the project should be scaled down to avoid higher property taxes.

Belmar will have to repay $2.8 million after FEMA and insurance reimbursements. The cost will be shared between the beach utility fund and taxpayers.
