Mayor’s Message: July 3

first_imgDear Friends,I want to wish you happy Fourth of July and hope you all get to enjoy the celebration with friends and family.There are a lot of great events tomorrow and throughout the weekend, and I encourage you to check out the many great restaurants and shops on the boardwalk, downtown and throughout Ocean City. Thursday’s festivities will be capped off with a fireworks display that will begin at 9 p.m.There are already a lot of people in town for the holiday weekend, so I’d like to remind you all to honor the laws that keep everybody safe.Drivers must stop for pedestrians at crosswalks, and just as importantly, I want to remind pedestrians to make eye contact with drivers before walking out into any street. Bicyclists should heed all stop signs and red lights and follow the same rules as cars. With so many people sharing the streets, these rules are extremely important.Please respect the power of the ocean and swim only at beaches protected by the Ocean City Beach Patrol. The patrol has started its extended evening hours at beaches throughout the island. You can see the locations and hours here.Because of a new moon, tides will run exceptionally high over the next couple days. Even in the absence of a storm, some streets could flood. Please monitor conditions, particularly during tides around 9:38 p.m. tonight (July 3) and 10:29 p.m. tomorrow (July 4).Warm regards,Mayor Jay Gillian Mayor Jay Gillianlast_img
