Mayor’s Update: January 26

The city administration presented a proposed five-year capital plan to City Council last night. The presentation lays out a tentative schedule for improvements to roads, drainage, the beach, bay, boardwalk, public buildings, open space, recreational facilities and more. I encourage everybody to take a look at the plan. A copy of the presentation and related documents are available at www.ocnj.us/projects. Council will consider our proposal and listen to feedback before voting on accepting it next month. The plan commits more than $100 million to tackling long-overdue projects in every part of the island. It’s a lot of money, but I’m confident that the plan is responsible. Our AA bond rating, low interest rates and our growing ratable base make this an ideal time to invest in these infrastructure improvements. Most importantly, the work will contribute to the quality of life we’ve all come to expect in Ocean City...
