DREDGING OF COUNTY WATERWAYS will be discussed by a variety of local, county, state, and federal officials at a forum on Monday, October 19th. Topics of discussion will include legislation, fish habitats, disposal of dredge material, as well as solutions to dredging-related problems. Speakers are expected from the US Army Corps of Engineers, Stockton Coastal Research Center, and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, as well as Congressman Frank Lobiondo. Cost to attend is $20; for more information call (609) 465-7181, or visit www.
Dredging has been a hot topic among local Bayfront property owners as well as boaters, as many local waterways are quite shallow at low tide. Avalon and Stone Harbor have both undertaken dredging projects to deepen local back bay waterways. Avalon is in the second year of its project, while Stone Harbor’s dredging is expected to begin later this month.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO PLANT DUNE GRASS this weekend, your help is appreciated! Please contact Chuck McDonnell at Community Hall (609-967-3066) or Sue Keen at Mayor Pagliughi’s office (609-967-5924) with questions or to sign up. Volunteers will report to Avalon Community Hall at 8:30am Saturday, October 17th, for donuts and coffee as well as a planting demonstration. Transportation and a complimentary lunch will be provided!

SEA ISLE CITY’S ACME and several adjoining stores met the wrecking ball last week. The 9,000 square-foot Acme had been there since 1959, but will be replaced by a 26,000 square-foot store for summer 2016. Rick’s Breakfast House and Uncle Oogie’s Pizza will move into a new 6,400 square-foot building on the site.
PLAN AHEAD FOR WINTER—call your plumber to schedule the shutdown of your outside shower and water lines, and other house winterizing jobs. The off season is also a great time to undertake major projects, when contractors and vendors aren’t quite so busy. Whether you’re painting a room or two, ordering new furniture or appliances, or remodeling your entire house, get started now to avoid the spring “jam up!”
