During the September 12 City Council meeting, three ordinances were adopted, following Second Reading and Public Hearing...
• Ordinance 1701, which requires insurance certificates to be registered with the City Clerk’s Office when Business Mercantile and Rental Permits are purchased, according to state mandate.
• Ordinance 1703, which requires the safe storage of road salt and other de-icing materials, according to state mandate.
• Ordinance 1704, which establishes wages, salaries and compensation for police officers and other city employees.
Also listed for Second Reading and Public Hearing on City Council’s September 12 agenda was Ordinance 1702, which was written to amend the existing ordinance related to the construction of new homes in order to meet FEMA flood requirements. However, due to the lack of a quorum at the recent Sea Isle City Planning Board meeting, the Planning Board was not able to properly review Ordinance 1702 for Master Plan consistency. Because of this, City Council voted to continue the Second Reading and Public Hearing for Ordinance 1702 until the meeting on September 26.
Each of the resolutions on City Council’s September 12 Consent Agenda was approved, including...
• Resolution 158, which authorized the inclusion of the Municipal Public Access Plan in Sea Isle City’s Master Plan. The Municipal Public Access Plan includes a complete inventory of 130 available public access locations to the beach and bay in Sea Isle City.
• Resolution 159, which authorized the adoption of the 2023 Cape May County Hazard Mitigation Plan Update.
• Resolution 160, which authorized Mayor Desiderio to execute an employment contract between the City of Sea Isle City and EMS Chief Bruce Knoll.
• Resolution 061, which authorized Sea Isle City’s Qualified Purchasing Agent to award contracts below the Bidding Threshold, as established by the Governor.
• Resolution 062, which authorized the refund of an abandoned Construction Permit.
• Resolution 063, which authorized the award of a contract in the amount of $215,636.00 to Think Pavers Hardscaping, of Mount Royal, NJ, for the reconstruction of the roadway along 46th Place.
Our next City Council meeting will take place at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, September 26, on the third floor of City Hall – and we hope to see you there!
Best regards from the members of City Council,
Council President J.B. Feeley
