CITY COUNCIL MESSAGE -  September 14, 2017

During the September 12 City Council meeting, City Business Administrator George Savastano reported that the Sea Isle Boulevard Elevation Project will resume next week – and that work will initially begin near the parkway and proceed east toward the marina and the Sea Isle Bridge. In mid-October, the contractor is expected to shift all traffic from the south-side of the causeway to the north-side, which has already been elevated, then work on the south-side can commence.  All work on Sea Isle Boulevard is expected to be completed in the spring of 2019, so we will have one more summer of construction before the project is finished and the entire causeway is elevated and open to traffic.

Mr. Savastano also reported that the County will soon award a contract for the replacement of the railings on the Townsend Inlet Bridge, which connects Sea Isle City and Avalon.  While that project is underway, the bridge will remain open to vehicle traffic, however the bridge will be limited to one lane of traffic during construction.

Following the Administrator’s Reports, City Clerk Cindy Griffith read an announcement from Paula Doll, the City’s Chief Financial Officer, which highlighted a note sale with TD Bank for $8,195,000 at an interest rate of 1.15% for 12-months.

Also on September 12, Ordinance 1613 was introduced and had first reading.  This ordinance was written to prohibit the intentional release of balloons or other objects, which are filled with helium or other lighter-than-air gases, and sky lanterns or similar airborne devices, which become dangerous pieces of litter, create a serious fire and safety hazard, or may cause harm to animals and the environment.

Each of the Resolutions on the September 12 Consent Agenda was adopted, including Resolution 153, which approved the award of a contract for $667,500 to Allied Painting for the restoration of the City’s water tank at 39th Street and Central Avenue. This project will include the rehabilitation of the tank’s interior and exterior.

Our next City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 26, at 10:00 a.m. in Council Chambers. During that meeting, Sea Isle City Police Chief Tom D’Intino will give Council an update on this summer’s police activities.


Best regards from the members of City Council,
