City Council's Message
October 21, 2021
During the “Mayor’s Report” at the start of the October 12 City Council meeting, Mayor Desiderio outlined the merits of Sea Isle City’s proposed Community Center, which the City’s Administration has been studying for several years and now would like to build, using preliminary architectural plans that have been created during the past 18-months.
Each of the resolutions on the October 12 Consent Agenda was approved, including…
• Resolution 205, which dedicated Sea Isle City’s Municipal Marina as the “Frank P. Edwardi, Sr. Marina.”
• Resolution 206, which ratified a Memorandum of Understanding with the City and the Public Safety Communicators through December 31, 2023, which is subject to presentation and adoption of a contract in the conformance of same.
• Resolution 207, which authorized the legally recognized process to procure doors and door repairs with Elmer Door Company, up to the bid threshold with no minimum purchase implied or guaranteed.
In addition to the resolutions on the Consent Agenda, Resolution 209 was also on the October 12 meeting agenda. This resolution was written to authorize the Administration’s Community Center Project and allow it to move forward to the “Construction Documents” phase. After listening to numerous comments from the public (most of which were in support of the existing plans), City Council was split 2-2 and the resolution did not pass. A project of this scale and cost requires a “super majority” (4 out of 5) of Council members to show support before it can be advanced.
The next City Council meeting will take place at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, October 26, inside Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall. –We hope to see you there!
Best Regards from the Members of City Council,
Council President Jack Gibson
