CAPE MAY POINT – The Cape May Point Zoning Board of Adjustment unanimously agreed the board had approved outdoor seating with wait service for the Red Store in 2009.

Deanna Ebner, owner of the Red Store, returned to the Zoning Board, Sept. 24, this time with attorney Louis Dwyer. Dwyer had brought the original application for the Red Store in 2009 and returned last week to ask the board to rule on one discreet issue.
“Did the 2009 resolution prohibit wait service on the patio?” Board Solicitor Dean Marcolongo told the board members. “The Zoning Board has interpretation power. You can determine what the board decided in the prior resolution.”

ATLANTIC CITY – Frank Campbell, special counsel for the Lower Cape May Regional School District, said Superior Court Judge Julio Mendez would issue a ruling in a week on how the cost of the Dec. 9 special election would be borne. 

A special election asking voters in Cape May, West Cape May, and Lower Township if they would like to dissolve the Lower Cape May Regional School District has been scheduled for Dec. 9. County Clerk Rita Fulginiti originally said Cape May would bear the cost of the special election, but Cape May objected. Cape May’s special counsel in the dissolution effort, Vito Gagliardi, said historically the regional school districts have borne the cost. Cape May has indicated it would be willing to pay 35 percent of the cost, which is their share of the district’s budget. But during a phone conference with County Counsel Jim Arsenault, neither West Cape May or Lower Township indicated they were willing to share the cost, or had the authority to enter into such an agreement.
