Frequently Asked Questions about the Beach Pass:
Q: Why do I have to pay for a Beach Pass if I live near the lake?
A: The purpose of the annual pass is to support the operating cost of Long Lake Beach. The system is such that all beachgoers contribute to the beach operations. The beach access is enforced uniformaly whether you walk, ride a bike, or drive to the beach.
Q: Why should I have to pay to enjoy the beach when I already pay taxes?
A: Your tax dollars do not pay for the operation of Long Lake Beach. PRCE is an enterprise operation. Everything we do is self-funded. While the cost of the beach operation is mainly attributed to the lifeguards, we also need to pay for training, beach cleanup at the beginning and end of the day, septic tank (tight tank) pumping, overall upkeep of the buildings and equipment, etc.
Q: What happens if the passes bring in more money than the beach costs to operate?
A: If there is a “net profit”, it will only be reinvested back in the community by enhancing the services we already provide allowing us to hold them more frequently, or perhaps allowing us to further subsidize events. Please keep in mind that the “free” events we host for the community – Touch-A-Truck, Halloween Parade, Trunk-or-Treat, Beach Party, Community Egg Hunt, Outdoor movies, etc. - are not free to PRCE to plan and run and are funded through the PRCE budget. On average, a “free” event costs PRCE $1000-$1500.
Q: What if I don’t have a beach pass? Can I still access the beach?
A: Yes. If you don’t have a beach pass, you can pay the daily rate. Your daily payment will be logged under your name. If you choose to later buy a Beach Pass, you can put the daily fees that you’ve already paid towards the Beach Pass. In other words, if you are a family of four and decide to hit the beach for the day, but don’t want to buy a pass, you would be charged $12 for the day. If you enjoy your time at the beach so much that you want to buy a Beach Pass the following week, you will have a $12 credit towards the pass. You would then only be charged $28 for your Beach Pass.
Q: How will the Beach Passes be monitored?
A: There will be a staff member monitoring the beach as has been the case in prior summers. This summer they will have the added task of asking for Beach Passes if they are not visible. If Beach Passes are visible, you most likely would not hear from this staff member. If you’d like to ensure the staff knows you have a Beach Pass, you can be proactive and check in with them before setting up on the beach. We are hopeful the community will work with our staff to make this transition as smooth as possible.
