MAYOR'S MESSAGE

During Tuesday's City Council meeting, I handed the proposed 2017 Budget to Council after delivering this year's State of the City Address.  I am very happy to report that the current State of Sea Isle City is strong and sound. 

As I mentioned in my address, Sea Isle will soon form a paid emergency medical services division, due to the challenges experienced in sustaining an all-volunteer Ambulance Corps.  This decision comes after a thorough study was conducted of our ambulance and rescue services.  << READ MORE>>
