President Labow: Consent Resolutions. We have one through ten actually because we added the one
for Mr. Pucilowski. Mr. Roman, did you want to ask the Mayor if he knew the answer to the third one –
the lifts?

Mr. Roman: Mr. Mayor, previously I had inquired about the third resolution for the expense of over
$36,000 for lifts and equipment and I had asked if we knew how many and what capacity loads those
were. Sherry did not have that answer.

Mrs. Maniscalco: I don’t think we are going to be spending $36,000, Alex. We usually just do the
resolution so we can use the State contract and in the event that we are going to go over, which usually
doesn’t happen, it will cover us. So, I’m sure it’s going to be less than that but I don’t know exactly
what.

Mr. Roman: If you could send me that information, I’d be interested in partaking at least my advice on that purchase. Thank you.

President Labow: Sherry, could you send it to all of us?

Mrs. Maniscalco: I always do, Colleen. I will.

President Labow: I thought so. Thank you very much.

Mrs. Maniscalco: You’re welcome.

President Labow: Any other questions on any other resolutions? Mr. Roman, would you please move the one through ten Consent Resolutions?

Mr. Roman: I make a motion to pass, to move Consent Resolutions one through ten.

Mr. Walsh: Second.

President Labow: Can I have a Roll Call please?

ROLL CALL:            Passed Unanimously

President Labow: No Non-Consent Resolutions. We have our Consent Motions. Mr. Roman again, could you please move the Bill List and the approval of the renewal of the Peddler’s permit for Avshalom Giblli for mobile food vending.

CONSENT MOTIONS

  1. Bill List. PDF Bill List
  2. Approval of the renewal of a Peddler’s Permit for Avshalom Gibli for mobile food vending.

 

Mr. Roman: Before I make a motion to approve those Consent Motions do we know what vending service that is?

Mrs. Lashway: Avi? He’s had a truck in town for at least eight years. I don’t know what it looks like but he’s been in town.

Mr. Roman: I’ve seen the name. For reason I can’t even recall where I’ve ever seen his truck.

Mayor Greenbaum: He comes to Town Hall.

Mr. Roman: Oh that, the lunch guy.

Mr. Nicastro: It’s a catering truck.

Mr. Roman: I’d like to move Consent Motions, one, the Bill List and Mr. Gibli’s permit,

Mr. Walsh: Second.

President Labow: Any other discussion from the public? Seeing none, can I have a Roll Call please?

ROLL CALL:            Passed Unanimously

President Labow: Thank you. Administrative Reports, Mr. Mayor.

ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

Mayor Greenbaum: Just briefly, I’d like to update everybody that this morning we had breakfast with the Mayor, a function of the Mount Olive Chamber of Commerce. It was very well attended and after that I met with Remax in Flanders to just let them know what services are available through the Township. If anyone knows of any businesses in town that would like have some type of public relations event, have them contact Lisa. We will make sure to get out there as quickly as possible.

President Labow: That was a great function this morning. I think that’s the largest one I’ve seen to date.

Mayor Greenbaum: It keeps growing.

President Labow: It is, it’s growing and it was a really nice group of people - a lot of conversations. It was like all of a sudden everyone was like, “Oh my God, it’s time to get to work” and everyone was like running out the door. It was like you kind of wanted to stay there. I want to thank LongHorn Restaurant also for opening early and having the Chamber there and the Mayor. That was fantastic. Mr. Nicastro and I were both able to attend this morning. Alrighty, Sherry do you have anything else you’d like to…Mr. Canning is singing Happy Birthday.

Mr. Roman: Oh, I hope not!

President Labow: Do we have any Old Business?

OLD BUSINESS

President Labow: Any New Business?

NEW BUSINESS

President Labow: Any Legal Matters?

LEGAL MATTERS

Mr. Augello: Not this evening.

President Labow: Okay, Council Reports. Mr. Roman do you want to give us all of your Reports at one time?

COUNCIL REPORTS
Recreation Liaison Report
Board of Education Liaison Report

Mr. Roman: I have nothing to report on Recreation. On the Board of Ed, on January 8th the Board of Ed opened their bids for the bus contract. Obviously no decision has been made and I’m pretty certain that at their next meeting of January 28th there will be extensive discussions on that matter.

President Labow: Thank you Mr. Roman.

Board of Health Report – R. Perkins
Legislative Committee Report – R. Perkins
TNR Program

President Labow: Mr. Perkins is not here this evening. I just want to cut in here at this point with the Board of Health since the Animal Control Officer falls under the Board of Health. I just have to say that Frank Nelson is doing like an unbelievably phenomenal job. I’m going to give you one example. Somebody had, well TNR had found, trapped a cat and had notified that there was a cat that had been trapped in this one neighborhood and Mr. Nelson actually went through the licenses for those streets looking for a cat with the same coloring description, found a cat that matched it. Turned out the cat that was trapped in the TNR trap was this people’s cat. They didn’t actually realize the cat was missing because it is an outdoor cat and sometimes will go for a day or two and I mean that was like phenomenal. The cat was brought home immediately and how simple that can be. You just look up the licenses and you see the descriptions so he just does not cease to amaze me. The job he is doing is absolutely phenomenal. He goes above and beyond and I’m very very happy it’s working out really well. As a matter of fact, we have a meeting tomorrow with Mr. Nelson and Mr. Wilpert and Mr. Canning, Ms. Lerner and Mrs. D’Afonso. We’re going to be having one of our quarterly meetings to talk about the two groups and I digress there. I’m actually giving my TNR report. So next we have, Mr. Mania is not here so Mr. Greenbaum, Mayor Greenbaum did Mr. Schaechter want, did you ask him about giving a planning report or…

Planning Board Report – J. Mania

Mayor Greenbaum: I did speak to both Chairman Weiss and Mr. Schaechter about what had occurred at the Planning Board but I don’t recall what the conversation was and obviously I was on trial for the last week so I don’t have a report but I will for next meeting.

President Labow: Okay, great, thank you. I appreciate that. Moving right along, Mr. Perkins isn’t here for Legislative. Mr. Ferrante, Open Space, Lake and Environmental.
