CITY COUNCIL’S MESSAGE 

October 22, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the October 13 City Council meeting was held remotely; however, members of the public were able to participate in the meeting telephonically.

At the start of the October 13 meeting, Mayor Desiderio announced that all City flags were lowered to half-staff in honor of former commissioner Steve Libro, who recently passed away. In addition to supporting the lowering of flags, City Council agreed with the Mayor’s comment that “Mr. Libro served the City with distinction for many years and will be sorely missed by his family and friends.”

Additionally, Mayor Desiderio asked City Council for their support in naming Sea Isle City’s future Fishing Pier & Kayak Launch at Dealy Field in honor of former commissioner Jim Iannone, who also recently passed away. Council unanimously supports this concept, and we look forward to seeing the Fishing Pier & Kayak Launch project completed in the near future.

Mayor Desiderio also mentioned that he is aware of the litter and debris that has accumulated along Sea Isle City’s causeway, and he informed Council that he has been in communication with County officials about this matter – and that County work crews will clean the causeway on a regular basis moving forward.

Following the Mayor’s report, City Clerk Shannon Romano announced that her office received a notarized “Revocation of Consent” letter from Bennett Enterprises, which halted the person-to-person transfer of Plenary Retail Consumption License #0509-33-009-003 (a liquor license) from Bennett Enterprises, Inc. to 42nd Place Liquor, LLC.  At that point, attorney Samuel Reale advised City Council to not take action on the transfer due to not having a letter of consent at that time. Because of this, Resolution 157, which was on the October 13 agenda to accommodate the transfer of that license, was immediately pulled.

Each of the remaining resolutions on the October 13 agenda was approved, including…
•    Resolution 159, which authorized a shared services agreement with the County for solid waste disposal and recycling services.
•    Resolution 162, which authorized a Change Order for Utility Reconstruction Project No. SIC156, resulting in a decreased cost of $95,057 to the City.
•    Resolution 163, which designated a city-owned 2011 Ford F-450 truck as “surplus property” and authorized the sale of that vehicle on Gov-Deals.
•    Resolution 164, which ratified a labor union contract between the City and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 1036 for Sea Isle’s Public Works and Water & Sewer Blue Collar Employees through December 31, 2021.
•    Resolution 165, which ratified a labor union contract between the City and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Local 1036 for Sea Isle’s Public Works Supervisors through December 31, 2021.
•    Resolution 166, which authorized a contract with The Rogers Group in the amount of $6,916 for Police Training.  A grant from Wawa Markets will pay for this online training program, which will focus on best practices and policies for day-to-day police operations.
•    Resolution 167, which authorized a contract with Rileighs Outdoor Décor Company in the amount of $31,372 for the replacement of broken holiday decorations and full installation of the City’s 2020 holiday decorations.
•    Resolution 170, which recognized the City’s Personnel Manual / Handbook, which outlines best practice procedures and regulations for Sea Isle City’s municipal employees.

The next City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 27, at 10:00 a.m.  Additional information about the October 27 meeting will be forthcoming on the City’s municipal website, www.seaislecitynj.us.
