Ocean City Council will hold a public hearing for two proposed ordinances that would help pave the way for the installation of four duplexes along Central Avenue when it convenes Thursday night at the library, 7 p.m.

The ordinances vacate rights to a non-existent alley and bestow the rights to an existing alley upon the city.

The duplexes would replace two buildings currently owned by the De La Salle Christian Brothers.

The city will also hold the second reading and a public hearing on a bond ordinance that appropriates $9,139,000 and authorize the issuance of $8,853,050 for improvements throughout the city.

Three ordinances are on the agenda for first reading for the city to acquire land. One ordinance is for three properties on Haven Avenue, one on Bay and one on Simpson, according to the Agenda Packet.

The properties in question are to the south and west of the developed portion of the city in the area of the ballpark located between Simpson and Haven. The city will recognize the ballparks and the vacant lots at the end of Bay Avenue and 36th Street.

The city already owns many lots in this area.

The other two ordinances concern properties that are made up of wetlands.

There are 15 items on the consent agenda, including a resolution to defer the school tax to 2014, a resolution to authorize a contract between the city and Czar Engineering in connection with the reconstruction of Firehouse #2 on 29th Street, and a resolution for street playground improvements, among others.
