Dear Friends:
The contractor for the beach replenishment project in the south end of town has begun to mobilize pipe and other equipment.  We have been advised by the U.S.  Army Corps of Engineers and NJDEP that the contractor’s schedule now indicates a projected start of dredging operations on April 14th and a projected completion date of July 5th.  As always, this is tentative and the dates may vary based on weather, equipment and other factors.  It is however appearing increasingly optimistic that the project can be completed earlier than previously projected.
Last evening City Council passed on second reading a bond ordinance appropriating approximately $8.3 million for capital improvements contained in the recently adopted Five Year Capital Plan.  I appreciate Council’s support of our continued aggressive approach to needed capital improvements.
Have a great weekend!
Warm regards,
Jay A. Gillian
