City Council's Message
April 8, 2021
There has not been a City Council meeting since Sea Isle City’s most recent E-Newsletter was published, because City Council meetings typically take place on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month and the flow of the 2021 calendar has resulted in a small gap of time before our next meeting, which will take place on Tuesday, April 13, at 10:00 a.m.
During City Council’s most recent meeting on March 9, Ordinance 1664 was introduced with first reading. This ordinance was written to amend the existing ordinance relating to the adoption of the City’s Watershed Management Plan and will help us maintain our status in FEMA’s CRS Program. Ordinance 1664 will have second reading and possible adoption during the April 13 City Council meeting.
Also on April 13, a new ordinance will be introduced related to the sale and handling of cannabis products in Sea Isle City. In addition to prohibiting the sale of cannabis within Sea Isle City’s borders, this ordinance will regulate the commercial delivery of cannabis and will prohibit the use of cannabis in any public area (including Sea Isle City’s beaches, sidewalks and parks). This ordinance complies with our Joint Insurance Fund’s recommendations to restrict cannabis until the City has the opportunity to review its land use ordinances and determine what laws are desired in our community.
As a reminder, the April 13 City Council meeting will be held remotely; however members of the public will be able to participate in the meeting via telephone – and the public can also email questions and comments to the City Clerk’s Office prior to the meeting (email@example.com). More information about the April 13 meeting will be forthcoming.
Best Regards from the Members of City Council,
Council President William Kehner
