The move to bring the water and sewer services into the township structure still needs approval by a super majority of Lower Township Council, meaning four of five votes. This far, Councilmen Thomas Conrad and Erik Simonsen have not been convinced the move is a good one (see related story).

The reason given for this decision was succinct: inadequate water depth due to insufficient dredging. 

The replica ship Galeon Andalucia has been seen in Johnny Depp’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” and John Malkovich’s “Crossbones” and had been scheduled to make Cape May a port of call. Cape May would have been the vessel’s next stop after Ocean City, Md. Other stops include Baltimore and Annapolis during the ships voyage to St. Augustine, Fla.
