MAYOR'S MESSAGE
Unfortunately, I must begin this message with frustrating news about the Townsends Inlet Bridge. As you may recall, two weeks ago the County informed us that, due to unforeseen challenges related to the current bridge repair project, the T. I. Bridge will not be open in time for this year’s Memorial Day weekend. Following that regrettable news, this week we learned that the bridge will be closed well into the summer season. READ MORE

CITY COUNCIL'S MESSAGE
During the April 9 City Council meeting, Ordinances 1632 and 1633 had second reading and public hearing, after which both were adopted. Ordinance 1632, which was proposed by Councilman Bill Kehner, was written to prohibit vehicles from driving through flooded streets and creating wakes that can damage garage doors, fences and other private and public property. Ordinance 1633 was written to allow the City to change certain traffic control signals from their regular red-yellow-green patterns to flashing patterns, which will eliminate unnecessary delays for motorists during the low traffic periods of the off-season.

HYDRANT FLUSHING
Regular Maintenance Ensures Reliability

During the months of April and May, Sea Isle City's Water Department will flush-out the water distribution system through the fire hydrants and exercise water valves throughout town. Semi-annual hydrant flushing is required to ensure that hydrants and the water distribution systems are functioning properly and can provide the proper drinking water quality (thus providing adequate water flow when needed). This is also a requirement for the Water Quality Accountability Act.   If a hydrant is being flushed near your home or business, we encourage you to avoid using washing machines, dishwashers or other water using devices during flushing operations.
