Ocean City Mayor: No Dredged Material for Shelter Road Center

New Jersey’s Ocean City will not pursue a proposed program to transfer dredged material to the Shelter Road Recycling Center, the city mayor Jay Gillian said last week.

The mayor made the announcement last Friday, after meeting with representatives of the Ocean Reef Condominium Association.

“Throughout my administration, I have always sought public feedback in the very early stages of any major project or new initiative,” Mr Gillian said in his weekly address.

“This information is extremely valuable to the success of any endeavor. In this case, there was an overwhelming amount of support both for and against the idea of using Shelter Road to help add capacity to our 2017 dredging program.

“While all of this input was considered, the primary factor in the decision was practical. It is just not feasible or financially viable to relocate all of the Public Works operations at Shelter Road to other parts of Ocean City.

The city had been considering use of the site as a temporary solution as litigation continues over the use of a site near 34th Street to store the spoils as part of the $20 million plan to dredge lagoons and bayfront areas too shallow for boating in the city.
