Other Exciting Projects

New Headquarters for the Wildwood Water Utility:  COMPLETED

  • This new facility will house the administrative offices of both the Water Utility and the Sewer Utility. Both of those authorities are fully self-supported—not carried by the City’s annual budget. Some of the properties where these authorities used to operate will be sold and returned to the tax roll (put up for sale to generate additional tax revenue).

New Public Works Facility:  IN PROGRESS

  • This project is still under construction, with the perimeter wall and the elevation of the entire grade nearly completed. This will provide a safe location for vehicles during severe floods. The new public works building on site has begun construction, and Wildwood’s new, centrally-located trash and recycling center will be in place shortly. This project has been financed jointly through insurance payouts, in-house construction (saving millions of dollars) and bonds.
