OC Introduces $15.9M Bond Ordinance

Ocean City Logo

By Bill Barlow

OCEAN CITY – Ocean City Council introduced a $15.959 million bond ordinance in a unanimous vote June 11, set to fund several city projects and purchases.
Normally, the city administration would have given council a detailed presentation on the bond, said Ocean City Finance Director Frank Donato. With meetings being held remotely, that has been difficult, he said, but he met with council members in small groups in advance of the meeting.
Street repairs and drainage work make up the largest portion of the bond, with $6 million authorized for construction and reconstruction of streets and alleys, and $5.5 million for drainage work.
Other spending included in the ordinance: $1.25 million for building repair, including an electronic key system for the public safety building and other work, and $1.47 million for equipment and vehicles, including a new SUV for the fire department, along with a new pumper truck, a street sweeper, and vans, sedans and pickup trucks for various city departments.
The bond includes $720,000 for repairs and rehabilitation, including work to the tennis and pickleball courts and other improvements, and spending on radio upgrades and equipment for city departments.
A public hearing and final vote are planned June 25.
