From Cape May County

COURT HOUSE – On Friday, February 16th, County Officials met with the Mayors and Administrators of all 16 municipalities of Cape May County to discuss a range of issues facing the County and municipalities in 2024. Topics of discussions included but were not limited to, Ocean Wind, Open Space, Mixed Income Housing, Countywide Dispatch, Shared Service Agreements, and a series of recent and potentially forthcoming laws being advanced in Trenton that will impact Counties and municipalities statewide. State law updates involving juvenile underage drinking and COAH were provided by the County Prosecutor’s Office and Assemblymen McClellan and Simonsen of Legislative District 1.

A continued effort of Director Desiderio that started in 2023, the Mayors Roundtables serve as a vital platform for collaborative dialogue and problem-solving among local government leaders, providing an opportunity to exchange ideas, share best practices, and address shared challenges throughout the County. These quarterly meetings play a pivotal role in fostering cooperation and coordination between the County and its municipalities.

“Being the Mayor of Sea Isle City, I understand that the municipal problems are County problems and it’s our constituents that count on us to collaboratively work together to solve the issues facing Cape May County,” said Director Desiderio.

Commissioner Barr also stated, “I’m honored to have been a guest of the Director for my first Mayors Roundtable, and coming from a municipal background, I can see why these meetings are so important. I look forward to continuing to work with local officials toward future partnerships that make sense to the residents of Cape May County.”

With a dynamic agenda that adapts to the evolving needs and priorities of the communities, the Mayors Roundtables ensure that discussions remain relevant and responsive to current events happening throughout the County. By engaging in constructive dialogue and strategic planning, County and Municipal Leaders can work together to enhance the quality of life for our residents.

“Together we can build a stronger and more resilient County that better serves and meets the needs of our communities,” said Director Desiderio.
