The following is Ocean City Mayor Jay Gillian’s weekly update to citizens posted on Friday, Jan. 8. The three-legged CRAB (Coastal Research Amphibious Buggy) surveys the beach at Seventh Street on Saturday, Dec. 5, in Ocean City, NJ.Dear Friends,In 2016, the city will continue its major commitment to improving all parts of the city from beach to bay — with a particular focus on roads and drainage. The city administration will present its five-year capital plan during a public workshop at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 19. The workshop will be held in the Chris Maloney Lecture Hall at the Ocean City Free Public Library, and I encourage you all to attend to see what projects are planned.Last year’s plan called for spending $80 million over five years with more than $28 million directed to roads and drainage alone. This year’s update will dedicate even more funding toward completing many long-neglected projects. Because of Ocean City’s exceptional bond rating and low interest rates, the city is in a position to accomplish the work without placing extra burden on taxpayers. All residents, property owners and visitors deserve an improved infrastructure to help them enjoy Ocean City.The plan will include substantial funding toward dredging Ocean City’s lagoons and bay side. I invite you all to a Town Hall Meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 25 at the Maloney Lecture Hall at the library. Representatives of ACT Engineering will present an update on a citywide dredging program. All coastal towns continue to face serious regulatory obstacles as they work to dredge their bays. The presentation will update the public on the city’s strategy for overcoming these roadblocks and creating a sustainable program.I wish you all health, happiness and prosperity as we begin the new year.Warm regards,Jay A.

The park is now dazzled with half a million bulbs. One part of the display features a light tunnel operated by 11 computers. “To see the kids, and the oohs and ahs, and the wows, that’s what is rewarding. It’s beautiful to finally open those gates and welcome everybody in to experience it,” said Patch. From Friday to Sunday, you will be able to walk the display while following CDC health and safety guidelines. On Thursdays, you can enjoy the animals and light show from the comfort of your car. “The added bonus of the animals in the park really just brings that holiday feeling home,” said Patch. HARPURSVILLE (WBNG) — This holiday season you can jam out to Jingle Bells in your car, all while enjoying the sights of Animal Adventure’s Jungle Bells Holiday Lights Display. Owner of the park, Jordan Patch, says he never expected to do a drive-thru light show, but he says it has taken many months and a big team to plan the event. “It’s absolutely fabulous. Nice job Eddie, and thank you Jordan,” said one guest during the drive-thru experience. “To think we would actually be offering a Jungle Bells experience in the same format didn’t cross our minds, but here we are,” said Patch. Those reactions for the Animal Adventure staff, and Patch, mean everything. The display runs from November 12 to January 3. For more information on hours and pricing, head to their website.
