By Camille Sailer

NORTH WILDWOOD – The City Council held its reorganization meeting Jan. 2 with Council members James Kane and Joseph Rullo, both with long public service records, sworn in by Municipal Judge Louis Belasco.
Mayor Patrick Rosenello asked for nominations for the position of council president. Salvatore Zampirri was unanimously elected to the post he previously held.
An announcement was made that Ronald Simone would serve as the municipality’s business administrator.
Simone had worked for North Wildwood since 2007 as a part-timer, he then graduated from Catholic University. Next came a public administration graduate degree from Rutgers University and his post of assistant business administrator.
Council passed a long agenda of resolutions including for financial management; operational and administrative matters; legal, engineering and other professional services; and internal municipal appointments.
In summing up 2018, Rosenello referred to the many projects his administration with council had taken on and completed. More are on the horizon for 2019.
These include:
* The Hereford Inlet pump station, with an aim toward keeping the Central Avenue curve area dry and flooding-free, at least in rain events if not tidal events.
* The seawall extension  and pcoming urgent repairs by Army Corps of Engineers which maintains the wall whose support and oversight the mayor termed “a godsend for us.”
