Message from the Mayor

Mayor John Reddington

I welcome the opportunity to be the new mayor of Ocean View.  I want to see Ocean View continue to prosper and remain a safe, beautiful and viable place to live.  Working with the Town Council and the Town Manager, I hope we can realize many of our goals and objectives as laid out in the Comprehensive Plan.

Ocean View has been the safest small town in Delaware over the past two years.  Ocean View is a beautiful, well maintained town and it continues to draw people here to visit and live.  I want to encourage and help preserve our small town atmosphere while ensuring our economic development.  This will mean adapting our environment to include new ways of getting around town, ensuring a clean and safe water supply, beautification projects and other projects all with a friendly and open communication with the residents of the town while maintaining a balanced budget.

I encourage residents to attend the monthly Town Council meetings on the second Tuesday of each month.  Our website will provide the agendas and issues to be discussed at these meetings.
