City Council's Message

At the start of the April 26 City Council meeting, Mayor Desiderio mentioned this year’s Arbor Day Celebration on April 29, during which thirty-eight new crepe myrtle trees (purchased with funds from the Environmental Commission’s trust account) would be dedicated along JFK Boulevard.
Also on April 26, City Council adopted Ordinance 1681, which is a standard ordinance that is introduced periodically to establish wages, salaries and compensation for City employees not covered under collective bargaining agreements.
Each of the resolutions on the April 26 Consent Agenda was approved, including…
• Resolution 069, which authorized a contract between the City’s Division of Recreation and Teri O’Connor, of NJ Beach Yoga, for Yoga Classes on City Property (with the City receiving 10% of registration fees).
• Resolution 070, which authorized the Sea Isle City Tourism Commission’s Internet Marketing Plan with WPVI, in the amount of $22,045.86.
During the “New Business” portion of the April 26 meeting, Councilman Feeley asked the City Solicitor to draft a Resolution that would oppose the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s proposed rules regarding elevation requirements in flood zones – including 5-foot freeboard requirements.
Our next City Council meeting will take place on the third floor of City Hall at 9:00 AM on Saturday, May 7, which is “Community Day” in Sea Isle City. –We hope to see you there!
Council President Jack Gibson
