MAYOR'S MESSAGE
From Mayor Leonard Desiderio...

I am delighted to begin this message with some very special news. It’s been decades since a baby was born within Sea Isle City’s borders – in fact, we believe it’s been since the mid-1970s. However, all of that has changed, because earlier this week members of Sea Isle City’s Emergency Medical Services team responded to a 9-1-1 call from a local home, where a woman was in distress. As it turned out, the lady was in labor, and her baby was ready to enter the world right then and there! 


CITY COUNCIL'S MESSAGE
From The Members of City Council...

The January 28 City Council meeting agenda was not lengthy, and the meeting itself was brief. At the start of the meeting, Ordinance 1649 was introduced with first reading. This ordinance was written to amend Chapters 4, 7, 8, 15 and 20 of the City’s General Ordinances – specifically to allow for consistency and address fees. Ordinance 1649 will have second reading during the February 25 City Council meeting.
