During the October 11 City Council meeting, EMS Consulting Services, of Hammonton, NJ, delivered a Power Point presentation, during which they explained their overall assessment of the services currently being offered by Sea Isle’s Volunteer Ambulance Corps. That report is being reviewed by City Council and the City’s Administration. City Council recognizes that our town’s Ambulance Corps has been very devoted to helping the local citizenry for many years; and if the City can assist the Corps and make it stronger, Council will support those efforts.
Also on October 11, Ordinance 1595 received second reading and was adopted, amending the general ordinance entitled “Flood Damage Prevention,” which relates to the adoption of the Sea Isle City Watershed Management Plan developed in 2016.
All of the Resolutions on the October 11 Consent Agenda were approved, including…
