CITY COUNCIL’S MESSAGE:   August 2

At the start of our July 24 meeting, City Council introduced two Boy Scouts, who were visiting Sea Isle City from Pennsylvania.  The scouts were in attendance in an effort to earn their Communication Merit Badges, and Council wishes them well as they work toward their scouting goals.

During the Administration Report portion of the July 24 City Council meeting, Business Administrator George Savastano informed Council that this year’s Beach Tag sales are just slightly below sales during the same time in 2017 (with a total a total sales of $1,205,960 as of July 22, 2018).

Also on July 24, Ordinance 1624 was introduced and had first reading. This Ordnance was written to amend the existing ordinance regarding “violations and offenses” and “parks and recreation” in order to revise the wording regarding use of facilities so it coincides with State legislation for large scale events.

 Also on July 24, Ordinance 1623 had second reading and public hearing. Ordinance 1623 (a Bond Ordinance that is consistent with the funding levels of the City’s adopted Capital Plan) provides for various capital improvements, including the purchase of high-priority equipment as well as the installation of decorative street lighting along the Promenade and in various commercial districts. This ordinance also provides for the purchase of a new public information sound system along the Promenade. One week later, a special Council meeting was held on Tuesday, July 31, to consider final adoption of Ordinance 1623, at which time Ordinance 1623 was adopted into law.  

 In addition to several resolutions that dealt with routine business, the July 24 Consent Agenda also included:

 ·         Resolution 130, which authorized the award of a contract in the amount of $789,580 to Mathis Construction        Company for the new 38th Street Pumping Station. This is the first storm drainage pumping station that the City will be undertaking as part of an overall storm drainage management plan.  

 ·         Resolution 131, which authorized Mayor Desiderio to execute an agreement between the City of Sea Isle City and New Jersey Transit for the installation of a bus shelter, which will be located at JFK Boulevard and Cini Avenue.

 During the Citizen Comment portion of the July 24 meeting, Marci Schankweiler, the Founder and CEO of For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation, spoke about upcoming events taking place in Sea Isle City that will benefit For Pete’s Sake, an organization that provides adult cancer patients and their families with respite vacations.

Our next City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, August 14, at 10:00 a.m. in Council Chambers.  – We hope to see you there!

Best Regards from the Members of City Council,
