Ocean City’s annual 9/11 ceremony will be held on Thursday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. in front of the Ocean City Fire Department headquarters on the 600 block of Asbury Avenue.
The following is Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s weekly update to citizens posted on Friday, Sept. 5.
Dear Friends,I would like to update everyone on the next steps for capital planning for the city. Over the next few weeks, the city team will be finalizing a multi-year capital plan to present to City Council at a workshop in October. As always, this workshop will be open to the public and will serve as a starting point to build upon the aggressive capital plan City Council and my administration have initiated. We have been working diligently for several years now to address the city’s capital needs in a manner that is responsible to the taxpayer.I also invite everyone to gather as a community on September 11 at 7 p.m. for the city’s annual September 11th commemoration event, “A Day to Remember.” Please join us in front of the firehouse at 550 Asbury Avenue to reflect on the tragic events of 2001. As with past commemorations, this event is held with coordination from the city’s American Legion and VFW posts, along with the city’s police and fire departments.I would like to remind everyone to visit the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association People’s Choice competition voting website and vote to support our downtown. Voting will close on Sept. 26, 2014, and the three area winners will be announced early in October. The voting website is: http://njplanning.org/news/peoples-choice-awards/, so please take the time to vote for Downtown Ocean City!I hope everyone has a great weekend.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayor
