CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – Township officials plan to work closer with local businesses through a new program, “Let’s Connect,” in an effort to strengthen the local economy and encourage area residents to shop locally.

According to the township’s Economic Development Council, the program aims to connect economic council members and township officials with local business owners. They plan to discuss issues and work for resolutions.

“We have been talking about setting up a program where the mayor would be available to meet with business owners on a regular basis, to hear their challenges and concerns,” said Mayor Tim Donohue in an email. “We are hoping to visit as many businesses as possible, rather than making business owners come to us.”
