Message from the Town Manager

Welcome to the beautiful Town of Ocean View, and to our website. We are proud of our Town and hope you will visit with us soon and often. Our community has 2,039 year round residents who are among the nicest people living in Delaware. The Town staff is composed of 19 dedicated employees comprising three major departments of municipal government. These departments are General and Administrative, Public Safety, and Public Works.

As the Town Manager, it is my job to manage the affairs of the municipal government and to provide administrative support to the Town’s Departments. The Town’s employees are dedicated to providing residents, businesses, and visitors in Ocean View with a great place in which to live, work, and play. Ocean View is conveniently located adjacent to and west of Bethany Beach. Millville borders Ocean View to the west while South Bethany, Fenwick Island, and Dewey Beach are within a short drive. Our goal is to keep Ocean View a small residential community that maintains a home town atmosphere emphasizing quality living.

I hope you will visit our website often, and enjoy seeing all we have to offer. We are here to serve you.
