MAYOR DESIDERIO'S 2014 SPRING MESSAGE:
Spring is here at last, and we have a lot to look forward to! In addition to seeing many of our family, friends and neighbors return to town, our community is alive with activity everywhere you turn. Homes are being re-opened, children are playing on the beach, anglers are polishing-up their rods and reels, surfers are riding waves, and business owners are opening their doors all over town.
We have spent much of the past winter improving our City’s infrastructure. So, in addition to all of the usual signs of spring, you will also find several areas where construction crews are finishing-up work on our roads, sewer systems and other utilities. Workers have also been busy constructing Sea Isle’s brand new water well and well house on 50th Street between Landis and Central Avenues, where a modern pumping station will have the capability or produce approximately one-million gallons of water each day starting this spring.
In other construction news, Sea Isle City’s Public Safety Building on JFK Boulevard was demolished earlier this year, and on March 31 we gathered on that site for the ground breaking of our future City Hall Municipal Complex. When completed in the summer of 2015, our new City Hall will become the home of Sea Isle’s Police Department, Fire Department, Municipal Clerk, Finance Department, Construction Office, Purchasing Department, Human Resources Office, Municipal Court, City Council, Business Administrator and Mayor’s Office. Additionally, this summer there will be a new municipal parking lot on the 4400 block of Landis Avenue and we are also expanding the Municipal Parking Lot in our Marina District. Clearly, a lot has happened during the recent off-season.
Looking ahead, as the weather improves and temperatures continue to rise, there will be many enjoyable events taking place. The spring months are always filled with activities here in Sea Isle City – so be sure to check-out our Calendar of Events to learn all about what’s happening in town.
Smile…You’re in Sea Isle!
Mayor Leonard Desiderio
