I hope all interested parties are able to participate in this presentation.
Thank you for your attention.
Due to the delta variant and present surge in COVID cases in Cape May County, Board of Commissioner meetings are returning to full virtual format until further notice. The Zoom link and information will be posted on each meeting agenda, which will be posted on our Agendas and Minutes page.
Please be advised that the new Water and Sewer Ordinance is now in effect. For a summary of the new rates and billing schedule, please see the Water & Sewer page of the Borough website. The complete details of the new ordinance can be seen here. The changes in rates and billing schedule were made to meet the fiscal obligations of the Water and Sewer Utility.

An important component of the newly signed Mayors' Monarch Pledge is planting milkweed in our community. This is critical since milkweed serves as the only "host" plant for Monarch caterpillars. Without milkweed there would be no Monarch butterflies!
The Environmental Commission invites Cape May Point residents to be a part of the work of the Mayors' Monarch Pledge by adding milkweed to your garden. Any homeowner who wishes to receive FREE Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) is encouraged to pick up your complimentary plant at the Public Works Maintenance building on Lighthouse Avenue.
The plants will be given away on a first-come-first-serve basis. If any of the 150 plants are leftover, they will be planted in Pavilion Circle Gardens, thanks to Bedfellows who have offered space in their bed at the Circle.
We thank you for your continued commitment to help reverse the dramatic decline of Monarch butterflies.

All property owners who rent their homes are required to obtain a rental permit. Applications are due by May 31st. For any application postmarked after the deadline, the cost of a permit increases by $100, no exceptions. All applications must be accompanied by full payment for the permit and the fire inspection.
You must contact the Fire Inspector at 609-884-8468 ext. 21 to schedule a fire inspection and it must be completed before you can submit your application. The Fire Inspector submits his report to the Borough. If no inspection report is on file, the application cannot be processed.
The rental permit application can be accessed using the link above and can also be found on the Code Enforcement page, the Clerk page, and in the Document Center.
The Borough and Jersey Cape Diagnostic, Training, and Opportunity Center, Inc. have teamed up to sell Cape May Point beach tags online at preseason rates!
Beach tags will continue to be available at Borough Hall, as in the past, for those of you who prefer that method.
