Another Independence Day has come and gone - and what a great day it was! From start to finish, Sea Isle City was bustling with activity on July 4th, and everywhere you turned it was clear that people were enjoying themselves.

My thanks also go to the members of the Yacht Club of Sea Isle City, who donated their time and efforts to lead hundreds of children through Sea Isle's wonderful July 4th Junior Olympics competition on Wednesday morning. Thank you all!  <<READ MORE>>

We also are in the process of preparing and putting into place plans for the next round of capital improvements throughout the City. As these projects move forward through the design, bidding, and construction phases, we will continue to provide you with updates on their progress.

GREEN = Low Hazard (calm conditions, exercise caution)
YELLOW = Medium Hazard (moderate surf and/or currents)
RED = High Hazard (high surf and/or strong currents)
