26 Jul Borough Special Meeting Highlights 07-23-2019
Dear West Wildwood neighbors,
West Wildwood borough held a special meeting on Wednesday, July 23rd at 9AM and was attended by two individuals. The Mayor and Commissioner Golden were in attendance. Notice of this meeting was sent to Atlantic City Press and the Cape May County Herald electronically and posted on the official Clerk’s Bulletin Board in advance, meeting the required 48 hour notice. The purpose of the meeting was to vote on resolution 2019-063 entitled “Authorizing a closed (Executive) session meeting for matters of litigation regarding the Appellate Division ruling of denial of insurance coverage in the matter of the Borough of West Wildwood v. MEL/JIF”.
At the opening of the meeting Solicitor Karavan gave an overview of the MEL/JIF ruling and mentioned the potential of challenging the ruling at a higher court. The bottom line is that further appeals would be costly to the Borough and the chances of winning are “slim to none”. After a short discussion the Commissioners voted not to pursue further appeals and to cancel resolution 2019-063. The closed session is no longer required.
