WEST WILDWOOD – Borough commissioners passed an ordinance establishing new prices for memorial brick pavers at Neptune Park.

Borough Deputy Clerk Carl O’Hala said the memorial paver program has been around for a couple of decades, but when the borough decided to rehabilitate the park, the paver program was part of it as well.

Borough Clerk Donna Frederick said the only thing the borough is doing differently is the cost.

“As with everything else the cost has gone up over the years,” Frederick said. “We were only charging $75 in the past, and now it’s costing more to do it.”

Ordinance 614 (2023) sets the cost at $200 for a 4-inch-by-8-inch brick, or $300 for a 6-inch-by-12-inch brick.

Frederick said the borough has not yet contracted with any vendor, but she has reached out to a couple of memorial companies and received verbal quotes.

“Down the road we will get some formal quotes,” she said.

Frederick said there are somewhere between 75 and 100 memorial pavers already installed in the walkway at Neptune Park, and that the widening of the walkway was part of the rehabilitation project.

She said applications for memorial pavers will be on the borough website soon, but anyone can come into the tax office and order them now.
