  • OCEAN CITY, NJ — Ocean City Council will make its final decision on a multi-million dollar bond ordinance for various improvements throughout Ocean City when it meets on Thursday, Feb. 23, 7 p.m. at City Hall.

    At its meeting on Feb. 9, council approved a proposed ordinance on introduction to appropriate $12,182,500 and borrow $11,573,375 in bonds and notes for various improvements. Specific amounts set aside for certain projects are listed in this week’s Agenda Packet.

    Council will consider a pair of proposed ordinances on introduction, including a utility easement to Atlantic City Electric for 500 Boardwalk, which is owned by the city.

    The electric company is looking to install poles on the property to improve service to the city. During discussions, the city and the electric company discovered there are currently existing poles on the property that aren’t currently subject to an easement agreement, but should be. Those poles are included in these plans, a diagram of which is posted in this week’s Agenda Packet.

    The other proposed ordinance calls for multiple changes to existing municipal fees. The proposed changes are also listed in this week’s Agenda Packet.

    Late last week, Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian announced he would be presenting a draft of the 2017 municipal budget to council during this week’s meeting.

    There will also be a proclamation designating February as Aviation Appreciation month, and there are 16 items on the consent agenda.
