OC Seeks $100M in Upgrades Over 5 Years

Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s administration wants to spend a little over $100 million on capital improvement projects over the next five years.

As presented, the five-year capital plan calls for $38.7 million in spending on projects in 2018, including $7.75 million for road and drainage work, part of a multi-year project to bring the Cape May County’s city roads up to standard after what administration officials describe as years of neglect under previous administrations.

The plan also calls for more than $6 million in city spending on beach improvements and back bay dredging and sets aside $1 million in each of the five years of the plan for land acquisition, so that the city will be able to move on properties that become available.
