SEA ISLE CITY – City officials are moving forward with a plan that would consolidated operations in a new municipal building at the site of the current Public Safety Building.

 

Sea Isle City has been conducting a facility review over the past several months, looking at options for reconstructing City Hall and the Public Safety Building. Both buildings are past their useful life and were built at relatively low elevations, according to a press release.

Damage from Hurricane Sandy forced the city to close both buildings. City Hall is on Landis Avenue and the Public Safety Building, which houses the Sea Isle City Police Department, is located on JFK Boulevard.

Both buildings had flood damage. City and police operations have been moved to the vacant Sea Isle City Public School. Repairing the flood damage would require a significant expenditure of funds, according to city officials.

Long term, the city wants to build a new facility that will house City Hall and police operations.

“As we move forward with the planning process, we will continue to update the public during council meetings, through our newsletters and website, and individually as we discuss this matter with our citizens,” reads a press release from city council. “All proposals and ideas are being given serious review by the council and administration, along with the advice of our architect.”
