The following message was posted by Mayor Jay Gillian as part of his Mayor's Letter for this week on ocnj.us:
There’s been a lot of good news for Ocean City this week.
like to thank the voters who have once again done the right thing for
our children by overwhelmingly approving the referendum for the repairs
to the Primary School.
Congratulations to the Board of Education and the School District Administration for developing such a well thought out project. The kids deserve nothing less than to be educated in a safe, clean and comfortable environment.
legislation to ease the negative impacts of the Biggert-Waters Act has
now passed both the House of Representatives and the Senate, and awaits
the President’s signature.
Earlier this week I hosted Congressman
LoBiondo, along with Mayors and other elected officials from many
coastal communities, to discuss this important bill.
Without the reforms that the new legislation provides our local economy would have been devastated. I thank Congressman LoBiondo, along with Senators Menendez and Booker, for their hard work and support.
