Mayor’s Message: April 16

first_imgDear Friends,The city was made aware this week of an Instagram account that describes predatory and sexually harassing behavior among members of the Ocean City Beach Patrol.The account includes anonymous posts about unnamed individuals inside and outside the workplace.The Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office has begun to investigate the allegations that have been posted there.Investigators urge anyone with information or who has been a victim to contact the Prosecutor’s Office at 609-465-1135, report it anonymously through the Cape May County Sheriff’s Tip Line at cmcsheriff.net (click on “anonymous tip”), or call Cape May County Crime Stoppers at 609-889-3597.The city has strict sexual harassment policies and procedures in place and acts immediately on every reported complaint.I have directed Fire Chief Jim Smith to build on existing policies and do whatever it takes to ensure employees feel safe coming forward.I want to continue to make sure all our city team members work in a safe environment.I want to let everybody know that our Tax Collection Office can now accept credit or debit card payments.Taxpayers can now use this feature (fees apply) and pay through an electronic transfer from bank accounts (free).These are added conveniences for those whose taxes are not paid through escrow accounts.I also want to remind everybody that a public comment period for the proposed offshore wind project near Ocean City continues through April 29 and one virtual session remains – at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 20.If you support or oppose this project, or just have questions, this is an opportunity to be heard by the agency that will decide on the project application.More information is available here. Justin Juliano in our Community Services Department will be available to guide citizens through the process of commenting if they run into trouble. He’s at 609-399-6111, ext. 9336 or [email protected] regards,Mayor Jay A. Gillian Mayor Jay Gillianlast_img read more
