LONG BRANCH - City officials in Long Branch are waiting to find out how much money they'll get from FEMA to repair a section of the boardwalk that remains broken and fenced off following Sandy.

The southern stretch of Ocean Avenue is very popular with walkers and bikers, and officials are considering widening the pathway when it's rebuilt to accommodate more people.

There is no word yet on when repair work could start or whether the boardwalk will be ready for the next beach season.
