• CAMDEN – A federal judge admonished the state Thursday, Jan. 15 for trying to quick-take beachfront property for a Margate beach replenishment project but stopped short of granting the city the preliminary injunction it requested.

    “Why NJDEP failed – and continues to fail – to follow the procedures set forth in the Eminent Domain Act is baffling,” U.S. District Court Judge Renee M. Bumb wrote in her legal opinion in the case brought by the city of Margate and beachfront property owners Morton and Roberta Shiekman against the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

  • VENTNOR – At a press conference on the Boardwalk Wednesday, Jan. 14, the mayors of Ventnor and Longport made it clear that they do not want the state’s pending dune project to be held up.

    Neighboring Margate, which has sued the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and US Army Corps of Engineers in an effort to negotiate an alternative to the Army Corps’ shore protection plan, is the cream in the Downbeach Oreo cookie.

  • PHILDELPHIA – A three-hour meeting Friday morning, Jan. 9 to negotiate alternatives to the state’s plan to build a sand dune in Margate was “unproductive,” according Margate Business Administrator Richard Deaney.

    Deaney said about 15 staffers from the Army Corps of Engineers, eight representatives of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and four from Margate, including Deaney, Commissioner of Finance Maury Blumberg, environmental engineering consultant Charles J. Rooney of T&M Associates and special counsel Rob Andrews of Dilworth & Paxon met at the Army Corps’ headquarters at the John Wanamaker building in Center City.
