Amityville’s public beach is scheduled to open Saturday, June 25, with new fees being imposed and others increased to raise local revenue.

Beach passes are $35 per household, $10 for households with senior citizens; residents can pick the passes up at Village Hall.

New fees are also in effect for swimming and sailing classes, and final registration will be June 25-26 at the beach manager’s office. The swimming program, formerly free, is now $35 per child, with a $100 cap for households with three or more children; the program runs June 29 through Aug. 5. The fee for the sailing program, which runs July 5 through Aug. 5, will rise to $150 per child. It was $75.

A lifeguard will be on duty and the concession stand will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The beach is closed to nonresidents.
