Even though we have had more than our share of rainy days this year, the summer season is off to a great start here in Sea Isle City. As the busy Memorial Day Weekend drew to a close, it was wonderful to see hundreds of people gathered at Veterans Park for our annual Memorial Day Ceremony - during which, I am happy to say, Mother Nature kindly granted us cloudy (not rainy) skies. I am grateful to everyone who took the time to honor our nation's fallen warriors on Memorial Day, including the event's participants: U.S. Senatorial Candidate Bob Hugin, Ambassador Theresa Tull, Commander Charles Haines and the Color Guard from VFW Post 1963, Cape May County Clerk Rita Marie Fulginiti <<READ MORE>> 

During the "Mayor & Administration Reports" portion of the May 29 City Council Meeting, Mayor Desiderio announced that, due to many requests from the public, he was issuing Executive Order # 1-18 that would allow the City to sell an additional 100 Seasonal Parking Passes starting at 1:00 p.m. on that day. Shortly after the Mayor's announcement, Ordinance 1622 was introduced and approved on First Reading, effectively increasing the number of Seasonal Parking Passes from three hundred (300) to four hundred (400). Please Note: Each of the additional 100 Seasonal Parking Passes sold out by the morning of June 7. <<READ MORE>>
