Sea Isle 3.15.2006

By Rick Racela

At the annual breakfast meeting of the Atlantic County Municipal Joint Insurance Fund (JIF), the city received Certificates of Achievement in three categories because of the efforts of the city’s safety commitment and the increased safety awareness of management, employees, and volunteers.
The city qualified for a $1,000 reimbursement for safety-related purchases and training and won the Safest Waterfront for the second year in a row, qualifying it for an additional $500 for safety purchases and training.
The Safety Waterfront designation was in recognition of the outstanding performance by the beach patrol, marina supervisor, and public works department.
Finally, a Certificate of Achievement was presented to the city for having fewer losses over the 2003-05 periods than the three-year loss ratio average for JIF participants.
There are 43 municipalities from Atlantic, Cumberland, and Cape May counties in JIF.
Municipalities are designated as small, medium, and large. Sea Isle City falls in the large group.
