Public Hearing on the 2009 Municipal Budget – adopting resolution moved to 7/21/09

Vice President Labow: The first thing on our Agenda is the Public Hearing for the 2009 Municipal Budget, and the adopting resolution has been moved to 7/29 but we’re having our public hearing…

Mrs. Lashway: Twenty first.

Vice President Labow: I’m sorry, 7/21. I was looking at the nine. Do we want to have any discussion?

Mrs. Lashway: No, just open it up to the public.

Mr. Dorsey: Say, “Is there anyone that wishes to be heard on this…”

Vice President Labow: Anybody from the public who wishes to be heard on the 2009 Municipal Budget. Seeing none, then we close it to the public. Mr. Higgins?

Gary Higgins: Yes, if I could just let you know the status, and no fault of anyone in this room, but the Division of Local Government Services has not given us permission to adopt the budget this evening. They only began their review process yesterday.

Mr. Roman: I was going to blame Steve.

Mr. Rattner: That’s okay.

Mr. Higgins: You were not subject to self exam. You were ineligible this year so they have to review it, and due to their backlog of numerous issues, including the fact that they were told to take furloughs at the Division of Local Government Services, they just didn’t get around to it as they told me. So here we are in July, seven months into they year and they just didn’t get around to reviewing your budget yet. So they kind of promised me that by your next meeting, which I believe is two weeks from this evening…

Vice President Labow: July 21st.

Mr. Higgins: …they will be ready to get around completely to your budget. That evening hopefully you’ll be able to adopt your budget and move on, completing the last five months and ten days of your budget year.

Vice President Labow: Mr. Rattner, I spoke to Sherry before the meeting. It’s once every three years we have to have a review.

Mrs. Maniscalco: I think it’s every three years.

Mr. Higgins: One out of three you can self exam.

Mrs. Maniscalco: Just as an FYI, I’m going to do temporary budget amendments for the next meeting anyway just in case, because I’m not going to trust them.

Mr. Higgins: I’m going to use my clout on behalf of the Township.

Mrs. Maniscalco: Just in case.

Vice President Labow: There you go. So I’d like to have a motion to carry the 2009 Municipal Budget to 7/21.

Mr. Rattner: So moved.

Mr. Dorsey: The adoption.

Vice President Labow: Thank you. Do I hear a second?

Mr. Roman: Second.

Vice President Labow: Roll Call, please.

ROLL CALL – Passed Unanimously

Vice President Labow: Okay, next on the Agenda we have… Thank you, Mr. Higgins. Are you waving bye?

Mr. Higgins: Thank you. Yes, I’m waiving goodbye.

Questions on Bill List?

Vice President Labow: Drive safe. Thanks for coming. Questions on the Bill List. We had a lot of questions during the Conference meeting. Do we have anybody else that has any questions at this time on the Bill List? Okay, seeing none, anybody from Council? No. Approval of Minutes of Previous Meetings.

ROLL CALL – Passed Unanimously

Vice President Labow: The next ordinance on the Agenda is… Oh, I’m sorry. Ord. #9-2009 has passed on second reading, and I hereby direct the Clerk to forward a copy of same to the Mayor and publish a notice of adoption as required by law. Next on the Agenda we have ordinance Ord.#12-2009. At this time I’d like, well, actually Mr. Greenbaum and Mr. Tepper wanted to be heard on this Ord. #12-2009 but could not be here tonight. I would like to ask for a motion to carry this ordinance to a public hearing on July 27, 2009.

Mrs. Lashway: Twenty first.

Vice President Labow: I’m sorry, July 21st 2009.

Ord.#12-2009 An Ordinance of the Township of Mount Olive Establishing the Salary for the Director of the Department of Public Works for the Year 2009.

Vice President Labow: Anybody from the public have any questions or concerns? Seeing none, Mr. Rattner, would you please move that?

Mr. Rattner: Thank you, Madam Vice President. I move for adoption and final passage of Ord. #13-2009.

Mr. Roman: Second.

ROLL CALL – Passed Unanimously

Vice President Labow: Ord. #13-2009 has passed on second reading, and I hereby direct the Clerk to forward a copy of same to the Mayor and publish a notice of adoption as required by law. Next item on the Agenda, I open the hearing to the public for Ord. #14-2009, entitled:

Ord.#14-2009 An Ordinance of the Township of Mount Olive Repealing Ordinance No. 56-2005 Dealing with the Residency of Sex Offenders.

Vice President Labow: I’m going to ask Mr. Roman… I’m sorry. I open it to the public. Anybody from the public have any questions or concerns? Mr. Roman, would you please move that?

Mr. Roman: I move for adoption and final passage of Ord. #14-2009.

Mr. Rattner: Second.

Vice President Labow: Thank you, any Council discussion?

Mr. Dorsey: I think we should just note that the reason this ordinance is being adopted is that the Supreme Court rendered a decision, and essentially said that in terms of a residency for Sex Offenders, it is a legislative issue that can only be dealt with by the State, and that all municipal ordinances in this connection are forbidden. It seems to me it’s about five years ago that Mr. Buell sponsored that ordinance, and we simply had to take it off the books because of the decision by the Supreme Court.

Vice President Labow: Okay, thank you very much. Can we have a Roll Call, please?

ROLL CALL – Passed Unanimously

Vice President Labow: Ord. #14-2009 has passed on second reading, and I hereby direct the Clerk to forward a copy of same to the Mayor and publish a notice of adoption as required by law. I now open the hearing to the public for Ord. #15-2009, entitled:

Vice President Labow: Mr. Tobey, would you please move that for us? Oh, I’m sorry. I’ve got to get this straight. I open this to the public. Does anybody have any questions or concerns? Seeing none, Mr. Tobey, would you please move that?

Mr. Tobey: Yes, I move Ord. #15-2009 for adoption and final passage.

Mr. Roman: Second.

Vice President Labow: Thank you. Any Council discussion? Seeing none, Mrs. Lashway, would you please do the Roll Call?

ROLL CALL – Passed Unanimously

Vice President Labow: Ord. #15-2009 has passed on second reading, and I hereby direct the Clerk to forward a copy of same to the Mayor and publish a notice of adoption as required by law. Okay, we have no ordinances for first reading this evening.

ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS

Vice President Labow: Mayor Scapicchio, do you have any…?

Mayor Scapicchio: Just one thing. We’re working on some attractive signage that we’ll bring to Council in the near future for signage over at Turkey Brook Park to bring in some additional revenue. It won’t be something like you see over at Roxbury and those Baseball fields on the way to the Roxbury Mall, but it will be something appealing to the eye, attractive and a revenue stream. We use the revenue specifically dedicated towards the maintenance of Turkey Brook Park.

Vice President Labow: Mr. Roman?

Mr. Roman: Dave, have you been in counsel with the Chamber of Commerce as to, because if this is a purpose of getting revenue from businesses, I think you should get input on why a business would be… If you’re going to, I understand the desire to have signage that is attractive and not as much of an eye sore, but I would have to assume that somebody that’s going to pay for advertising would want it to be as eye catching as possible.

Mayor Scapicchio: There are some requirements that Open Space puts on the type of signs you can put up there, Alex. I guess at that point in time when we come up with the final design, we’ll certainly run it through the Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Roman: Yes, I just wanted to make sure that at least you had, I would assume, some input from the Chamber of Commerce because you would hate to go through all of that expense and then find out you can’t get the revenue that you anticipated because…

Mayor Scapicchio: It’s not going to look like a billboard, let me tell you that.

Mr. Roman: Okay.

Vice President Labow: Anything else, Mayor Scapicchio?

Mayor Scapicchio: That’s it. Thank you.

Vice President Labow: Thank you. Sherry, do you have anything you’d like to add tonight?

Mrs. Maniscalco: No.

OLD BUSINESS – none

NEW BUSINESS – none

LEGAL MATTERS

Vice President Labow: Okay, thank you. Old Business, does anybody have any Old Business this evening? Seeing none, New Business? Okay, seeing none, Mr. Dorsey, any legal matters this evening?

Mr. Dorsey: Just to tell you that last Friday Dominic appeared in Chancery Court and had Tonie Fry’s lawsuit dismissed. It’s not the biggest lawsuit in the world but it is kind of a nuisance. As I mentioned before, we did 300 County Tax Board appeals in June. We’re waiting for the results and feel fairly confident. We’ve resolved Mr. Dorsey (cont’d): one or two more lawsuits by way of motions. They’re called Chapter 91 motions where the property owner doesn’t get his full day in court. So the tax appeals are moving along as well and at this point, within the parameters that we had originally set.

Vice President Labow: Okay, very good, thank you very much. Council Reports. Mr. Roman, Recreation?

COUNCIL REPORTS

Recreation Liaison Report

Mr. Roman: Nothing to report other than the Beach is open and it looks like it’s being well attended, barring the extensive days of rain that we’ve been having.

Vice President Labow: Alex, how are the plans for Mount Olive Week going?

Mr. Roman: Well, it’s on track. The Carnival, hopefully everybody is aware of, which opens up this coming week, but the Recreation Committee has not met during that time.

Vice President Labow: Thank you, one second, please. We had a minor spillage here.

Mr. Dorsey: I’m alright.

Mr. Rattner: We have a water emergency.

Mr. Dorsey: Shut up.

Mr. Rattner: Anybody have any experience with water?

Vice President Labow: Tim, we have a water emergency up here. Alright.

Mr. Rattner: It looks like 206.

Mr. Roman: No, Manor House Road.

Vice President Labow: Manor House Road. Mr. Perkins is not here this evening so we won’t get the Board of Health Report. We have the Planning Board which is Mr. Greenbaum, and Board of Adjustment is Mr. Greenbaum.

Board of Health Report – none

Planning Board Report – none

Board of Adjustment Liaison Report –none

Open Space Committee Report

Vice President Labow: Open Space, we meet next week is it? I think next week. Legislative, Mr. Perkins is not available.

Legislative Committee Report - none

Pride Committee Report

Mrs. Labow: Pride Committee, we couldn’t have our meeting last month because Liz Ouimet, our Chair, her daughter was graduating. So we’ll be meeting this coming month. Board of Education, Mr. Roman?

Board of Education Liaison Report

Mr. Roman: I was not at the last Board of Education meeting. Unfortunately, I have no comprehensive report to give.

Vice President Labow: Should I ask Mr. Ireland?

Mr. Roman: You know what? Actually, I’d like to take this time, I’m very pleased that every time something comes up on the Bill List that, you know, unfortunately only two residents keep coming up and asking questions, but that the opportunity arises that residents can look at the Bill List and question. The Board of Education does not allow that to happen. I just want it to be at least put on the record that it’s something that I think the Board of Education should at least make available for the residents and the taxpayers, because you know, the light being shined on there, it prevents the possibility of people complaining that the money is being spent inappropriately without the perusal of the public

Vice President Labow: I agree. I would like to see that as well. Thank you, Mr. Roman. Mr. Rattner, we have our Lake Environment issues.

Lake/Environment Issues Committee

Mr. Rattner: Nothing to report.

Vice President Labow: Okay. Safety Committee, Mr. Perkins is not here this evening and I understand the next meeting he will be giving us a full report on the new ambulance service. Economic Development Committee, Mr. Rattner.

Safety Committee Liaison – none

Economic Development Committee Report

Mr. Rattner: Nothing to report.

Vice President Labow: Solid Waste Advisory is Mr. Perkins. Again, he’s not here. Library Board, Mr. Tobey, how is that going?

Solid Waste Advisory Committee Report – none

Library Board Liaison

Mr. Tobey: There’s a meeting tomorrow night.

Senior Citizen Liaison

Vice President Labow: Okay, thank you. Seniors Citizens, I did not reach out to the new President yet this week, but I will for the next meeting. Now we open the meeting to the public. Anybody from the public who wishes to come up and address the Council? Seeing no one, I close the meeting to the public. Any Council comments? Mr. Tobey?

PUBLIC PORTION – none

COUNCIL COMMENTS

Mr. Tobey: Nothing, thank you.

Vice President Labow: Mr. Roman?

Mr. Roman: Nothing.

Vice President Labow: Mr. Rattner?

Mr. Rattner: I have none.

Vice President Labow: And I have none this evening. We are going to move into executive session to discuss…from the Conference meeting. We’re going to have our update on Open Space negotiations. Mr. Rattner, would you like to move us into executive session?

Mr. Rattner: Subject to Sections 7 & 8 of the Open Public Meetings Acts, I move that we go into closed session to discuss contract negotiations…

Vice President Labow: For Open Space.

Mrs. Lashway: Minutes of this meeting will become available at the conclusion of the negotiations.

Mr. Rattner: Just like she said.

Mr. Tobey: Second.

Vice President Labow: Just for the public, we will not be taking any official action after the meeting. You’re welcome to stay if you’d like but we’ll just be closing when we’re done. So Roll Call, please? Do we do a Roll Call?

Mrs. Lashway: All in favor?
