WAS YOUR PROPERTY AFFECTED BY JONAS? In order to help with the FEMA recovery process, the Sea Isle City Office of Emergency Management asks that you let them know if your home or business had flood damage or was affected by Winter Storm Jonas. If so, please send the following info to the SICOEM:
--If your property has Insurance
Please email your info to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not have email, please send your info via the U.S. Post Office to Sea Isle’s Office of Emergency Management, 233 JFK Boulevard, First Floor, Sea Isle City, NJ 08243. You can also leave your info in a voice message by phoning 609-263-4311 (ext. 2255). Please be aware that due to the large volume of anticipated responses, the OEM will not be calling you back.
IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDER: City Ordinance 18-2.13 states that any bulk trash items, including refrigerators, which constitute a public safety hazard, shall have their doors removed when placed for collection. Failure to remove refrigerator doors can result in fines. More importantly, refrigerators can be deadly when left on the curb with their doors attached because children can climb inside and become trapped.
BEACH EROSION: Some of Sea Isle's dunes and beach entrances were damaged during the storm (particularly in the downtown area). Please use caution whenever you are near the beach.
TRASH AND STORM DEBRIS COLLECTION: Residents and property owners can leave bulk trash and other storm-damaged items on the curb. The Department of Public Works will collect those items in a timely manner. If at all possible, please try to place your regular household trash on the curb on your usual trash and recycling collection days only so the DPW can focus on hauling-away as much storm-related trash as possible. For more info about trash collections, phone 609-263-6000 or visit the Public Works home page: http://seaislecitynj.us/public-works.aspx

TOWNSENDS INLET BRIDGE IS CLOSED: The T. I. Bridge (connecting Sea Isle City and Avalon) is currently closed, due to the need for repairs to the bridge's south abutment. The current schedule is for the bridge to remain closed through February 12, 2016.
The bridge is expected to be open for 2016 Polar Bear Plunge weekend (Presidents Weekend). All work is expected to be completed and the roadway fully open by March, 2016. Motorists, pedestrians and bicycles must plan an alternate route while the bridge is closed.
Beach Fill Update
Initial replenishment of all beaches in Sea Isle City was completed during 2015, with nearly two million cubic yards of sand placed along Sea Isle’s shoreline. However, the City has been informed that additional refilling of beaches eroded by storm damage has been authorized by the federal government.
Refilling of Sea Isle’s north end has commenced; however the current plan of action is to move beach fill operations to Strathmere on February 4 and restore storm eroded beaches there over the next one to two weeks. After completing Strathmere, beach fill operations will re-commence in Sea Isle, with substantial widening of the beaches to be performed from about 25th to 57th Street.
It is anticipated that beach fill operations will be completed in March 2016.
