Mr. Perkins: I didn't see a motion or anything so I just figured we needed to correct that.

 

Mrs. Lashway: Thank you. I'll make the correction.

 

Mr. Perkins: Just for the record, just a typo Lisa. I didn't get a chance, I'm sorry, to get back to you with that.

 

Mayor Greenbaum: Maybe Alex just doesn't know and maybe it doesn't need to be corrected.

ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

 

Mayor Greenbaum: I don't really have much tonight. I did hear from the Board of Education last night. We had approached the Board of Education with respect to the Cory Road improvements that had been suggested by the Police Department in light of past events at the entrance of the High School. The Board of Education considered our request to participate in funding and rather than paraphrase what was told to me by Dr. Reynolds, Tim Halbur is here from the Board of Education to let us know what their thoughts were.

 

Tim Halbur, Board of Ed: In this regard I am speaking for the Board of Ed. Anthony Giordano, President, was unable to attend. He's got an anniversary.

 

President Roman: If you can bring the mike up a little closer. Thank you.

 

Mr. Halbur: Sure can. So we did as Rob said. We appreciate the opportunity to consider it. We took a look at it and we would love to have helped in this matter and we were offered to participate in the waiver approach of it but from a financial point of view we felt that the fiduciary responsibility that we have for the students didn't lend itself toward the fixing or the striping of the roads. So at this time we are going to decline but we did make the offer to Mr. Canning that if there was some way our Buildings and Grounds could assist in this endeavor that we would be more than welcome to, more than willing to, sorry.

 

President Roman: I understand the financial constraints that are placed upon the Board of Education and Mr. Mayor, correct me if I'm wrong, we will undertake this endeavor on our own if need be. Is that correct?

 

Mayor Greenbaum: I've already arranged it and made sure that the funding is available from the existing Roads Department to make the improvements that are required happen because I think it would be very short sighted to do anything else.

 

President Roman: I agree.

 

Mr. Mania: I agree too.

 

President Roman: Thank you.

 

Mayor Greenbaum: Thank you Tim.

 

President Roman: Do you have anything else Mr. Mayor?

 

Mayor Greenbaum: I expect when Mr. Canning comes back and in the very near future we are going to see fleet maintenance proposal. I know that you've been working with Mr. Canning and I don't think that, is there anything else? That's it.

 

President Roman: Okay. I understand you have a couple of appointments on here. You have, would you like to speak on them?

 

Mayor Greenbaum: I don't have it in front of me right now. I assume you are talking about the Planning Board?

 

Mr. Mania: Yeah, Paul Ottavinia and Brian Schaechter.

 

Mrs. Lashway: It on the Agenda right under Administrative Reports.

 

Mayor Greenbaum: I know. I don't have the Agenda in front of me right now. It's okay. I don't need it. As you all know Scott VanNess has retired. He was the Class III (II) which is an employee of the Township and so Scott will no longer be able to sit on the Planning Board in that capacity which is a huge loss for the Planning Board because his knowledge with respect to many different areas of planning has been invaluable. I am happy to report that Scott will be remaining on the Planning Board. I'm going to appoint him to another seat which I held open knowing that he was going to have to give up his seat so he will remain. I have offered and Paul Ottavinia has accepted. I have found Paul to be an exceptional individual. I think he will be a good member to the Planning Board. I think he's got a lot to learn in the planning area but ultimately I think once he gets up to speed he will be a major contributor as well to our planning effort. In addition I have appointed Brian Schaechter as my alternate to the Planning Board. I've found due to my busy schedule that it was difficult for me to make many of the meetings. Brian, many of you know, is a very, he is an individual who has participated on many Township levels in the past including the Library and he will be an excellent addition to the Planning Board as well. Those are the two appointments that I had made to the Planning Board.

 

  • Appointment of Paul Ottavinia to the Planning Board, member Class II to expire 12/31/12
  • Appointment of Brian Schaechter to the Planning Board, Mayor's Alternate Class I to expire 12/31/15

 

President Roman: Excellent choices. Okay, we are on to our final Old Business.

 

OLD BUSINESS

 

President Roman: Okay, New Business?

 

NEW BUSINESS

 

President Roman: Legal Matters.

 

LEGAL MATTERS

 

Mr. Semrau: Council President I just want to say thanks to Jill for coming out tonight and being so helpful in putting together the ordinance and that's my report for this evening.

 

President Roman: You know you get paid by the word. Okay, we are on to Council Reports.

 

COUNCIL REPORTS

Recreation Liaison Report

 

President Roman: As most of you are aware, the carnival has ended and from the preliminary reaction from the public it was very well received. I'm sure the mailboxes have been flooded with recommendations and I'm sure we are already preparing for next year's carnival. Board of Health, Mr. Perkins.

 

Board of Health Report

 

Mr. Perkins: Yes, Mr. President, Mr. Wilpert and I spoke today. We had a full audit of our Health Department a few weeks back. We got conditionally approved. We do have a few items that need to be addressed. Some of them are kind of obvious. We have workforce development. We are kind of doing, Frank needs to be as the Health Officer for the communities that we have shared service agreements with, he needs to be integral part of the appraisal process for those employees and that was not something that originally was anticipated. So there is some competency training that also has to be undertaken with those communities as well as our own. Health employees, we have to have some memorandums of understanding to be developed for things like STDs and HIV. Our health education plan is collaboration with the health educator. That's being worked on. There is some need to work together a bit more with our Office of Emergency Management. The emergency operations plan needs to be updated and signed and just some things that Frank will have to work together with the Office of Emergency Management and we have one year from now to get that done. All in all it was an excellent audit. It was very intense. I know it took the better part of an entire day and the staff and all was there. They were all questioned. All records were run over. I purposely stayed away during that day. I figured it was no good for me to be there. The second item is tomorrow night we are having a Special Public Meeting on the massage ordinance for the massage and spas. That will be the second reading and that will be for adoption of that ordinance tomorrow evening.

 

President Roman: We are on to Legislative. Do you have anything Mr. Perkins.

 

Legislative Committee Report

 

Mr. Perkins: Yes I do. One interesting thing, Mr. President, just to bring you guys up to date. I sent through to Senator Oroho my question as we are working through the Council on Affordable Housing, the Housing Trust Fund which is obviously the Stonehouse, my question was, if we look at things like the Clean Energy Program which help us in our Sustainable Jersey and whatnot, why if we use those funds could they not be considered identical to the funding that the State provides whether that be through HMFA Housing, Mortgage, Finance Agency or directly through DCA whether in the form of tax credits or funding. Ironically enough from the Office of Legislative Affairs down in Trenton and the Assistant Attorney got back and said that the program that I'm referring to is not for new construction. Unfortunately the young lady didn't quite understand what she was talking about so I recanted on that and went back and said, I respectfully disagree and the program was specifically set up for new construction. That's how you spur people to build better energy efficient homes. The crux of the matter boils down to it was the State that told us COAH said you will collect this fee from every developer who comes in to your municipality and you would use that to finance affordable housing. Well the State now says you can't use that money to give to a proposed developer and if that developer decides to participate in the New Jersey Clean Energy Program and built these homes to a higher standard and code, you can't get the program incentives which are strictly for the Smart Growth area or State funded. So I said to the person, if I took the money from my affordable trust that you are looking to steal back from all of the municipalities, if we give you that money back and you give it to the developer, is he then entitled to share in the incentives that are available for building a Clean Energy home and their answer is yes. So I said, but you're the ones that made me take the money so isn't this really in effect a State program? So we are having a little battle back and forth supposedly Jeff Spatola and their staff down in Trenton has sent it off to the Board of Public Utilities. I think it will go a long way. Typically, places like Homeless Solutions I think we all recall when they were building it first down in Hackettstown and we were asked to go down by some of our fellow residents and constituents down there. They built that without getting any extra money back from the State even though they built it to a much higher standard and code. So I think it goes a long way. It's the State. They keep reaching into our pockets to take money out and say, if I take it, it's the State and I give it to Mr. Russell here and say, okay, now you can share in the program incentives that are available then if that municipality keeps that money and gives it to you, you can't share in it. So it really doesn't make a lot of sense and I think if you are going to be forced to take this money and at the request of the State, possibly lose a good portion of that money then at least you ought to be able to do is to allow the municipality to entice the people to build to a higher energy standard and be able to incenticize them. I will keep the Council abreast, Mr. President, once I get this answer and I don't expect anything rather quickly but as soon as I get the answer back from the Board of Public Utilities, we may actually have a precedent that we are setting up.

 

President Roman: I think I have just but one phrase for what you just explained, New Jersey government.

 

Mr. Perkins: The State, the minute the State gets involved, Mr. President, I'm baffled because I can't understand it. If you told me I had to take it, then really you control it because you told me what I had to take and to prove that it was yours, you're getting ready to try and take it back if I haven't spent it. So why can't I utilize it to the same benefit that you are utilizing it if it was directed to you.

 

President Roman: Unfortunately you are using a tool that is probably not normally seen up there at the State House and that's logic.

 

Mr. Perkins: Logic, yes. I will keep the Council informed with that should anything change Mr. President.

 

President Roman: Thank you very much. Mr. Walsh, do you have anything on Legislative?

 

Mr. Walsh: Just to let you know everybody that I spoke to Assemblyman Chuisano last week and I'm going to set up a conference call with him next week to talk about some issues and I'll have a report for the next meeting on that.

 

President Roman: Do you have anything for Planning Board?

Mr. Nicastro: Just thanks again to Jill and her team with the carnival. It was just fantastic. I was there at least three days and heard nothing but good things from everyone. It was a great job. A lot of people went. A lot of residents were very happy so thank you very much.

 

President Roman: Mr. Walsh.

 

Mr. Walsh: Great fireworks too by the way and that's it.

 

President Roman: And yeah, the carnival was a great success. I had the pleasure of being dunked and unfortunately, based on the preliminary tallies the Mayor beat me in acquiring more donations than I did. I don't think that is an indication that he is liked more than me. I think people just wanted to dunk him more than me and with that I'll take a motion to adjourn.

 

ADJOURNMENT

 

ADJOURNMENT - Motion made and seconded. All in favor, none opposed, the meeting was adjourned at 8:08 pm.
