Ocean City is ready to take property from property owners who have not signed easements that would allow work to move forward on a beach replenishment project between 34th Street and Corson's Inlet State Park, ocnjdaily.com reports.

The city must obtain easements from all those who have ownership rights to unbuildable land, Mayor Jay Gillian said in July.

That number is down to 10 from the needed 100 last summer. City Solicitor Dorothy McCrosson said at the Feb. 13 council meeting she expects more to come in.

This week, ocnjdaily reported the city is ready to claim properties from those still holding out.

Mayor Gillian--not Gilliam. It is bad enough that you "appropriate" other reporter's work (ocnjdaily.com, shorenewstoday.com), at least make it look like you do local reporting by getting the names right.

Mayor "Gilliam"! What an embarrassment. Has anybody from this site ever actually set foot in Ocean City? If there's anybody still reading this site, please do yourself a favor and stop. Go straight to the source of the news they steal. Former Patch editor Doug Bergen is doing a great job with http://ocnjdaily.com/ The Gazette is online at http://www.shorenewstoday.com/snt/news/index.php/ocean-city-mainmenu.html. Guess Patch doesn't know that there's a century-old local newspaper in town: http://www.ocsentinel.com/

This is clearly a result of the mass firing from the Patch. The editors who remain have too much territory to cover. Obviously there is no longer a desire to be part of the community. The best way for us to show our dissatisfaction is to boycott the Patch entirely. I personally am thrilled to see Doug Bergens new website ocnjdaily continue to develop each day. As we all would agree he is an excellent journalist.

The other night on the Philadelphia news, they were talking about GILIGANS fun deck in Sea Isle closing? It was a funny mistake by the reporter. I didnt know about Doug, but I agree, this patch has gone off the rails and has become a disappointment with the changes. I tried ocnjdaily but it wouldnt work on my search. is it .com, .net, .??
