SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Mayor Bill Akers has led the effort to put Seaside Heights back together after Sandy.

Akers says the good people of Seaside Heights and surrounding areas are the reason why his town has made the progress it had.

Mayor Akers hopes new grants will help homeowers to continue to move back into their homes.

Eric Landskroner reports from Seaside Heights, taking a look at how the community is recovering, and talking about the progress being made in rebuilding what Sandy took away.
