Atlantic City is seeking bids for the second phase of a project to prevent storm-water-related flooding. The work is part of a multi-million-dollar infrastructure project to reduce flooding in the city. The project, which began last year, is mostly being funded by federal grant money. The current project will install pumps at the Atlantis Ave end of the Baltic Avenue canal – which tends to flood when high tide coincides with heavy rainfall. According to the request for proposals, sealed bids will be received on Tuesday Jan. 10 at 11 am.
The west side of Lake Lenape Park in the Pinelands of Atlantic County is about to get a major refit, with Atlantic County and the Atlantic County Improvement Authority coming together to build a bathhouse and extend the number of camping sites along the water’s edge. The nearly 2,000 acre park is in the pinelands, which means there are additional hurdles to build or develop the area. The only bathroom at the site is at the boathouse at the southern end to the park and visitors to the 18-site campground in the northern section of the park rely on port-a-potties. Still, the $17-a-night sites are in demand throughout the April-November season, and the county’s parks department has been looking to extend camping options for some time. In fact, a plan to extend sewer, water and electricity lines out to the campsite area in the north of the park was part of plans formed two decades ago, said Glen Mawby, director of facilities management for the county.
Atlantic City, seeking to reduce costs by contracting out some of its waste removal among other municipal services, has a new proposal out that includes changes that came up in a pre-bid meeting with potential contractors. The fact that there was a pre-bid meeting and there were interested parties with questions is probably a good thing for the city (given how well the closed auction for Bader Field went). The changes are incorporated in this document here and mostly focus on requiring the contractor to provide waste containers to apartments and condominiums and defining “bulk waste” in some detail. Bids must be submitted by 11am on Tuesday Oct. 18.
Egg Harbor Township is looking to fill two positions, according to its website.

But if you don’t have that qualification or experience, never mind – maybe you are a yoga instructor? Because EHT is looking for one of those too. The township’s parks and rec department is looking to hire an “advanced” yoga teacher part time.
