New City Hall Building for Sea Isle

This week, engineers proposed building a $13.2 million new city hall building. This will replace the current public safety building on JFK Boulevard, which will hold both city offices, the fire department and the police department.

The proposed four-story building was deemed necessary by City Council after the city's two current government complexes were both significantly damaged during Hurricane Sandy. Tuesday's meeting was held in the city's modified elementary school, where city offices and police have been stationed since the storm. Officials said building a new city hall would be more efficient long-term than staying in the school or fixing the city's damaged current buildings. Engineers said they have been planning this project for months, and had already been analyzing city facilities prior to Sandy. The old buildings were cramped and inefficient, with access and space limitations, engineers said. City Administrator George Savastano said the administration will seek approval at the next council meeting to proceed with creating construction specifications and then seek bids on the work in or around October.
