When the new Wildwood City Hall is done, it will have a cornerstone dedicated to the "past, present and future citizens of Wildwood." A group of private residents is pooling donations to do so.
Wildwood City Administrator Dan Dubruiel presented the concept at Monday night's city council meeting, indicating the group was prepared to fund a marker larger than originally planned.
The budget for the new city hall included a $175 line item for the cornerstone, but Dubruiel said the private citizens' group committed to providing at least $800.
Wildwood resident and Planning and Zoning Commissioner Fran Gragnani told council members Monday she and others thought it was "a nice thing to do for the city."
She also told them the group to date had amassed $1,300 in donations.
The money will be applied toward the cornerstone as well as a time capsule. The project is designed to encapsulate from where Wildwood came and where it is going.
Council members voted to allow the stone marker to be pursued in the fashion presented by John Gunther, who represented the Wildwood-based architectural collaborators who designed the new city hall building.
