BELMAR - A group of Belmar residents is threatening a lawsuit over proposed plans for the boardwalk pavilions.

The group, which calls itself Let the Citizens Decide, wants the borough to give voters a say about the size and cost of the pavilions that will be constructed on the boardwalk.

One of the proposed pavilions is said to be more than double the size of the one destroyed by Sandy that it is replacing.

Members of the group attended a borough council meeting Wednesday night.

If the borough does not grant the request to put the question on the ballot, the group says it will file suit.

Construction of the pavilions will cost more than $7 million and opponents worry that cost will fall on the backs of taxpayers. FEMA has rejected the building of other boardwalk pavilions post Sandy.
