July 2, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus, the June 23 City Council meeting was held remotely; however, members of the public were able to participate in the meeting telephonically.

At the start of the June 23 meeting, Mayor Desiderio reminded City Council and the public about the cancellation of several events, including Sea Isle City’s annual July Fourth Junior Olympics competition and Fireworks Display, as well as this summer’s Concerts Under the Stars on Saturdays and the Family Fun Nights on Mondays.

Following the Mayor’s comments, Business Administrator George Savastano updated Council on the sale of 2020 Beach Tags, stating that this year’s sales figures to-date are 2% below 2019’s figures. Mr. Savastano also updated Council on this summer’s Beach Replenishment Project, at which time he explained that dredging operations are expected to begin in early July.
Council reminds everyone that regular updates regarding the Beach Replenishment Project can be found on the home page of Sea Isle’s municipal website,

Also on June 23, City Council adopted Ordinance 1654, which was written to allow the City to place 50% of the funds collected for Zoning Board review fees into a trust fund that will be dedicated to flood prevention planning and mitigation.

Each of the thirteen Resolutions on the June 23 Consent Agenda was approved, including…

•    Resolution 091, which appointed Councilman Frank Edwardi Jr. to the Planning Board as a representative of City Council. 

•    Resolution 092, which appointed Councilman Bill Kehner to the Tourism Commission as a representative of City Council.

•    Resolution 094, which authorized the award of a contract for Professional Auditing and Accounting Services to Leon Costello / Ford-Scott & Associates.

•    Resolution 095, which authorized a contract for Professional Financial Services to Phoenix Advisors.

•    Resolution 096, which authorized the adjustment of the Public Bidding Threshold from $40,000 to $44,000.

•    Resolution 098, which authorized a Shared Services Agreement by and between the Borough of Avalon and City of Sea Isle City for Back-Up Construction Official and Building Inspector Services.

•    Resolution 099, which authorized the approval of a Raffle Application by The Knights of Columbus Madonna Marie Council, of Saint Joseph Catholic Church. 

•    Resolution 201, which authorized a contract for Conflict Attorney Services to Keith Davis, Esq.

During the “New Business” portion of the June 23 meeting, following a unanimous vote by City Council, Councilman Bill Kehner was chosen as Council President for the next year. Councilman Jack Gibson then thanked current Council President J.B. Feeley for his efforts “during these unprecedented times.”

City Council reminds all residents and visitors to maintain social distances at all times and to wear face masks while shopping and whenever you are within 6-feet of non-household members.

Our next City Council meeting will take place on Tuesday, July 14, at 10:00 a.m.  Additional information about that meeting will be forthcoming.

Best Regards from the Members of City Council,
