Council denies another street opening

CAPE MAY – Cape May City Council opted for the second time, recently, to deny a street opening application on a road paved within the last five years.
City manager Bruce MacLeod introduced the application to council saying a property owner at 1230 Idaho Avenue had applied under hardship circumstances, saying they were requesting to open the street for gas service. The owner has been doing some remodeling to an existing home and wants to change some services from electric to natural gas. MacLeod said this was similar to a request made last month for 340 Congress Street, which was new construction. Regarding the Idaho Street project, South Jersey Gas noted on its application they were aware the street was under a moratorium until 2016, but made the request for a 4-by-4 foot opening plus a one foot opening for water sewer lines, 38 feet long. MacLeod said it was the city’s position not to grant waivers for the moratorium.
