In this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, co-hosts Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham welcome Mayor Patrick Rosenello of North Wildwood, New Jersey to discuss the ongoing legal battle between his town and the state of New Jersey. The town is suing the state for $21 million, claiming that it spent a decade trying to hold back the waves with trucked in sand, and that the state's refusal to allow emergency repairs is putting public safety and property at risk. The DEP counters that there is no emergency, and that the proposed work could actually make erosion worse. Tune in to hear the latest developments and the mayor's perspective on this contentious issue. Only on ASPN!
