On behalf of the Commissioners and employees of the Borough of Cape May Point, NJ, we would like to welcome you to Cape May Point's official website.

This site is for our Cape May Point "family" of property owners and the general public to understand the function of our municipal government departments and the services that they offer.

We will continue to add information to keep the site as up to date as possible. While some information on the site is mandated by state statues, most of what you will find is our way of bringing everyone into the world of Cape May Point in order to make their experience here more enjoyable and understandable.

Should you have any questions, please direct them to the appropriate Commissioner. You will find links on the Mayor and Commissioners page where you can click on a name to send an email directly to them.

We encourage you to use this site on a regular basis so that you are continually informed of what is happening in our local government.

Borough News

Dear Residents,

For the first time in decades, the Borough of Cape May Point is installing new water meters. This is a major construction project, but will result in substantial benefits to you and the Borough’s public water utility.  Over the past three years, there have been over 70 major water leaks impacting both residents and owners.  Water is expensive and the leaks have been very inconvenient.  Our goal is to improve the financial stability of the Utility while improving the service to you.  The new automated meters have been purchased with a leak detection component and there is no charge to you for these new meters as we are paying for them by improving operational efficiencies, paying down high interest bond debt, refinancing current high interest bonds, and decreasing our water usage.

As with any major construction project, there will be hiccups.  Should you encounter any problems with your water service, you may contact the plumbing contractor directly (24/7) at the following numbers:

LENEGAN PLUMBING  609-399-1200 during regular business hours or after hours and weekends, Joe Lenegan’s personal cell phone number is 609-425-8600.

As always, our dedicated DPW Supervisor, Bill Gibson, is available for EMERGENCIES at 609-224-7015.  Please remember and respect the fact that he works long hours and should only be contacted as a last resort.


The November meeting of the Environmental Commission is cancelled.
