Overview: In a recent meeting, the Atlantic County Board of Commissioners addressed issues including flood response initiatives, cost-saving measures, and honoring late public servants. The meeting began with a tribute to the late James Carney, an esteemed former county surrogate judge, and Bruce Crow, mayor of Mikića. A significant portion of the session was dedicated to discussions about enhancing the county’s response to flooding through a new emergency alert app and public alert system, both aimed at improving community safety and preparedness. Additionally, the board approved multiple resolutions that promise financial savings, such as a $100,000 annual saving water conservation project at the Atlantic County Justice Facility and the acceptance of nine vehicles aiming to mitigate congestion and improve air quality.
