Meet The Mayor This Saturday 6/23

Each year, we offer a one-time chance to meet and hear from our Mayor, the Honorable Francis Hodgson. This year’s meeting will be held this Saturday, June 23rd at 10:00am. Francis Hodgson has been mayor since January 6th, 2016, after being a member of the Surf City Council for more than four decades. During this Meet The Mayor meeting you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions (and hear the questions and concerns of your neighbors and fellow taxpayers). The Mayor will address issues that have recently been raised by citizens and businesses.  Here are a few topics that have been discussed in the past:

  • Current state of Borough finances including Budget and Tax Comparison to other Towns
  • Beach Replenishment
  • General Public Safety Initiatives
  • Street Flooding 
  • Street Repaving Schedules  

 You’ll also hear from the Surf City Taxpayer Association Board about projects underway and events planned for the summer. Click Here to see our events calendar. And, if you have an interest in getting involved, any board member will be happy to talk with you.
