Sea Isle City Council awarded an $11.7 million contract to Hessert Construction of Marlton in January 2014. The old City Hall building on Landis Avenue and the Public Safety Building on JFK Boulevard were flooded in Hurricane Sandy.

Due to the extent of flooding damage, all staff and operations for those buildings was moved to the former public school building on Park Road. The new City Hall, designed by Garrison Architects of Bellmawr, will house the fire department, City Council chambers and city offices such as municipal court, construction office, and police department.

It is built to an elevation of 16 feet to prevent future flooding.
