CITY COUNCIL MESSAGE -  February 15, 2018

During the February 13 City Council meeting, Mayor Desiderio presented Council with Sea Isle’s 2018 Municipal Budget, and the Mayor also gave his annual State of the City Address, at which time he informed Council and all those present that there will be no tax rate increase and no water/sewer rate increase in 2018. In this year’s budget, while maintaining all of the great services that Sea Isle City provides its residents and visitors each year, we will be focusing on the future of the former public school facility on Park Road, the City’s Storm Water Management Plan, infrastructure improvements and bicycle safety.

There were 13 resolutions on the February 13 Consent Agenda, including:

•    Resolution 025, which approved a grant application to accept Federal Grant Funds administered by the State’s Department of Law and Public Safety in support of the “Cops in Shops” program.  The funds for this program will help Sea Isle City’s Police Department validate I.D. from customers in local bars and retail liquor stores in an effort to halt underage drinking.

•    Resolution 030, which authorizes a contract with Transformation Enterprises, Inc. for $133,850 to demolish a portion of the former public school building on Park Road (specifically the “annex” on the east side of the building). The demolition of the annex is one phase in the planning process to create space for recreation services while cost estimates and plans are being prepared for future concepts at that location.

•    Resolution 032, which outlines City Council’s opposition to offshore oil and gas drilling and development along New Jersey’s coastline because it causes substantial environmental impacts, including onshore damage, water pollution, noise from seismic surveys, air pollution and oil spills. Council feels the harmful environmental consequences of offshore oil and gas exploration and development are serious concerns that threaten the environmental and economical assets of our State. 

During the “Pending Business” portion of the February 13 City Council Meeting, Council President Tighe reminded everyone that this weekend is “Polar Bear Weekend” in Sea Isle City, and she also informed Council that the design of the new “Beach Etiquette” rack card is nearing completion.

Our next regular City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 27, at 10:00 a.m. in Council Chambers, located on the third floor of City Hall.

Best regards from the members of City Council,

Council President Mary Tighe (
