The ordinance proposes creating uniform regulations for construction, repair or renovation for all bulkheads along any waterway or beach, according to the agenda packet. Currently, the ordinance only applied to non-oceanfront bulkheads.
An entire passage concerning oceanfront bulkheads was added to the ordinance, stating the minimum elevation on the top of these bulkheads should be 11 feet, the alignment shall adhere to the Official Oceanfront Bulkhead Line of Ocean City, and the City Engineer must approve a plan proposing limits on disturbances to city residents.
Council will hear three proposed acquisitions of land on second reading. All three properties are in wetlands areas.
Council will also consider resolutions to provide services to Sea Isle City for construction on its municipal building, as well as a resolution supporting keeping NBC40 as a local TV station after it was purchased by Locus Point Networks (LPN), which is not a TV broadcaster.
