VENTNOR – The city’s National Night Out will be back this summer to promote public safety and community partnerships. The city’s Public Safety Department, Ventnor Special Event and the City of Ventnor will host the event starting at 5 p.m. on the first Tuesday of August behind the library on S. Newport Avenue.
