Great news for Ventnor... terrible news for Margate.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers have confirmed that effective July 6, 2017, the Ventnor beach work will halt and move instead to Margate City.

The Ventnor work will not commence until Labor Day weekend or later.

Ventnor City Commissioner Lance Landgraf has worked extremely hard for many months to take this unwelcome project (timing only) away from the summer months in Ventnor.

Commissioner Landgraf will be my guest Friday morning at 7:35 on Hurley in the Morning on WPG Talk Radio 104.1 to discuss this development.
