Mayor’s Message: Dredging Contracts

first_imgDear Friends,It has come to my attention that a Beesley’s Point waterfront property owner is seeking a variance that would allow the transfer of dredge materials from barges to trucks. Ocean City has two current contracts for the removal of material from waterways on our bayfront, and the contractor apparently is interested in considering Beesley’s Point in Upper Township as a transfer location.I want everybody to know that this is not at the direction of Ocean City. Our bid specifications and contracts specified two transfer locations within the boundaries of Ocean City, and I have instructed our dredging program administrator to make sure the contractor adheres to this requirement.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A.
