SEA ISLE CITY – Mayor Leonard Desiderio told the City Council on Tuesday, April 23, that the current schedule for the Army Corps of Engineers’ beach fill project anticipates completion of all beach work by mid-June.

Desiderio said major work replenishing south end beaches from 94th to 73rd streets will be done in the next few weeks. The beach fill effort then moves to downtown beaches, from 29th to 53rd streets.

“In the event that work is being done on or after Memorial Day weekend, the project will be downtown at that point, and no one will have to walk more than two blocks on the promenade to access an open beach,” the mayor said.

He added that the Army Corps will strictly enforce the work limits “to ensure that the maximum amount of beach remains accessible to the public.”

Sea Isle City has a 50-year contract with the Corps that usually results in beach replenishment on a three- to four-year schedule. The replenishments are mostly funded with federal monies, with approximately 35% of the costs covered by the state and the municipality. The actual costs vary with each fill, depending on factors like the amount of sand placed on the beaches.
