BRICK - The mayor of Brick has been forced to find a new place to live since Sandy.

Brick Mayor Steve Acropolis' house was left uninhabitable after the storm surge. Acropolis, his family and their two dogs moved into a houseboat two weeks after Sandy struck, and will remain there until their house is repaired.

The mayor says the location is ideal for keeping track of the contractors and that there is still a yard where the dogs can run around. However, he says that at just 46 feet in length, living on board gets a bit cramped.

Contractors have told the mayor that he can move back into his home in about three to four weeks.
