Seaside Heights Mayor Bill Akers tells the Asbury Park Press ( http://on.app.com/SagykB) the town and the owners of the Casino Pier are in talks to remove what remains of the Jet Star Roller Coaster.
The mayor last week told a TV station that the coaster would make a "great tourist attraction." But the mayor now says that "was not the brightest comment."
Casino Pier officials say they are still assessing the damage.
The mayor says construction of a new boardwalk should begin in January and be ready by Memorial Day.
