On behalf of the Commissioners and employees of the Borough of Cape May Point, NJ, we would like to welcome you to Cape May Point's official website.

This site is for our Cape May Point "family" of property owners and the general public to understand the function of our municipal government departments and the services that they offer.

We will continue to add information to keep the site as up to date as possible. While some information on the site is mandated by state statues, most of what you will find is our way of bringing everyone into the world of Cape May Point in order to make their experience here more enjoyable and understandable.

Should you have any questions, please direct them to the appropriate Commissioner. You will find links on the Mayor and Commissioners page where you can click on a name to send an email directly to them.

We encourage you to use this site on a regular basis so that you are continually informed of what is happening in our local government.

Water and Sewer Rates Adjustment

At the last two Board of Commissioners meetings, Commissioner Mullock announced local water and sewer rates will need to be adjusted for 2018.  In addition to the County MUA sewer charges increasing by 30% over the last several years, the 2018 water charges from Cape May City increased by $0.20.  The current total water charge per 1,000 gallons is $7.32.  These and other factors are requiring the Water/Sewer Utility to consider new rates and anticipates introducing an ordinance shortly.

Non-Profit Funds

The Lifeguard Trust sponsors the junior lifeguard program, the annual Women’s Lifeguard Challenge, other lifeguard special events during the season and purchase of essential lifeguard equipment.

The Environmental Trust underwrites environmental educational initiatives and updating the Environmental Resource List, an exceedingly important reference to be used, among other things, by the Cape May Point Planning Board.
