ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

President Labow:  Administrative Reports, Mr. Mayor and Mr. Canning.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I have a couple of things real quick.  Freeholders are holding a meeting here, Monday, November 25th.  I believe it’s at 7:00 pm.  It’s their regular meeting that they’re moving from town to town.  I hope that anyone who is available will be here on that evening.  I know that Budd Lake Chapel is running a Thanksgiving type event at the Holiday Inn and that is on Sunday the 24th at 10:00 a.m. at the Holiday Inn. 

President Labow:  Excellent.

Mayor Greenbaum:  That’s all that I have.

President Labow:  Mr. Canning.

 

Mr. Canning:  The only thing we had, we had the Design Day last week at the Senior Center.  Leathers and Associates came in and unveiled their initial design.  It was well attended, it was great to see and the thing I really enjoyed was seeing the architect earlier that day meet with a lot of kids from around the Township and he really did listen. 

President Labow:  Yes.

Mr. Canning:  He had gone through the drawings that had…we had over 600 responses from schools, but the thing that was neat, was in the morning, there were two children in town, one had mentioned how much the Marauders in Mount Olive meant to him and to see how he came up with the design and had the Marauders pirate ship incorporated.  Another young fellow from town had this stuffed reptile that he came in with, a little stuffed animal, and sure enough by the end of the night, there was a reptile slide that was incorporated in this.  It was pretty neat to hear how the kids had said what they had envisioned in this great playground and by the end of the night, he really incorporated it all.  It was pretty exciting, I know the kids were real excited.  It’s a big undertaking and a big project, but we’ll do it and we’ll do it well.

President Labow:  Sean, when are we going to start building it?  When is that projected for?

Mr. Canning:  March into April.  We are going to try to start clearing the pad maybe by mid-December to mid-January, I would like to see if we can get in there sooner than later before a hard frost sets in.  We’re looking towards March/April to build.

President Labow:  Excellent.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I just have one correction.  The Budd Lake Chapel event is this Sunday, the 17th, at the Holiday Inn at 10:00 a.m. 

President Labow:  Thank you.

Mayor Greenbaum:  If you remember, Pastor Allen was instrumental in terms of the incident involving the two children which we lost in the lake.

President Labow:  Yes.  The Holiday Inn in ITC?

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.  10:00 a.m.

President Labow:  10:00 a.m.  Excellent.  Any comments?  I want to say, I was there Thursday night.  I know Joe was there, Alex was there Thursday night for the roll out of the design.  It was really fantastic to see.  It was very exciting.  I just also want to say that Kiwanis Club in Mount Olive is having their Santa breakfast on December 7th and 50% of our net proceeds are going to go towards Mount Playmore.  I’m really excited about that.  I have that affliction with my right arm when they need volunteers for chairing events and somehow I ended up being the Chair of the Santa breakfast, but it’s a lot of fun.  I enjoy doing it and I’m really excited that we are going be helping with the Mount Playmore.  It’s all good stuff.  December 7th, 9:00 a.m. starts the breakfast.  Santa comes in…Santa and Mrs. Claus will be there at 9:30 a.m. and we’re all set to go.  Let’s see, next on the Agenda…

Mr. Roman:  I find it amazing that we have so much pull in Mount Olive that we can always get Santa and Mrs. Claus to…

President Labow:  It’s really phenomenal. 

Mr. Roman:  It’s a testament to the importance of Mount Olive. 

President Labow:  Absolutely.

Mayor Greenbaum:  They never seem to come to my house though.

President Labow:  We’ll have to make sure they make a stop at your house this year.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I leave cookies out every year…never stops by.

Mr. Roman:  I can see you’ve been eating them.

 

President Labow:  It’s probably Santa has…

Mayor Greenbaum:  That’s how I grew so tall.

President Labow:  You need gluten free cookies.

Mr. Roman:  That’s what it is.

President Labow:  We have next on our Agenda, our Legal Matters.

OLD BUSINESS - none

NEW BUSINESS - none

Open Space Committee Report
Mr. Nicastro:  There was an Open Space meeting last night.  Basically, we discussed the appointments coming up for the New Year.  They’re looking to set up a trail committee and start recruiting people for the beginning of the year to take care of the trails.  I believe Kathy was going to reach out to Sean, I don’t know if she did today or not, about the GPS and maps and stuff that were going on.  That was about it.  Nothing on the Safety Committee.

President Labow:  Mr. Perkins.

Mr. Perkins:  Thank you, Madam President.  Board of Health meeting is tomorrow night.  Nothing on Economic or Legislative.

Recreation Liaison Report
Mr. Roman:  On Recreation, I’ll reiterate again the excellent design by Leathers and Associates regarding the Mount Playmore area.  It was amazing to see the concept, the aerial view of the architectural design and the turnout was outstanding.  I was expecting 20 people at the most, but there were three times as many people there.  I was also very pleased by the number of small children in attendance that were actually paying attention to this architect’s presentation.  

President Labow:  That was really good.

Mr. Roman:  I’d like to congratulate the Mount Olive Junior Marauders, the junior varsity football team for one, having an undefeated season…

President Labow:  Yeah.

Mr. Roman:  …and winning the Morris County Youth Football League National Conference, their first championship game and most importantly for beating Long Valley twice.  I think this group of players has been undefeated maybe three seasons in a row now.

Mayor Greenbaum:  No.

Mr. Roman:  How many…weren’t they undefeated last year?

Mayor Greenbaum:  No.

Mr. Roman:  Then I…

Mayor Greenbaum:  They lost to Long Valley last year.

Mr. Roman:  That makes beating Long Valley even much better.  That’s all I have to report.

President Labow:  One thing I just also want to mention on Thursday night for the Design rollout, Sam’s Club donated two huge platters of delicious treats.  My daughter-in-law actually made them, which was really cool.  It was great because it was all little bite size for the children along with some other nourishments we had available, which was absolutely phenomenonal.  We have, next, Mr. Staszak, for MOTV Committee. 

MOTV Committee Liaison - none
Mr. Staszak:  Nothing this evening. 

President Labow:  Nothing this evening.

TNR Program
President Labow:  For TNR, we had a very successful yard sale over at the After.  The After, they are just phenomenonal.  They allow us to use the lower end of their parking lot.  It’s actually a win win.  It brings more people into the After which is great.  We get a lot of people looking.  We are just about $100.00 shy of topping our last one.  We always try to do better than the one before and it’s amazing, the donations.  We’re very thankful for all of the generous donations and people who stopped by to shop at the sale.  Next, we have our public portion this evening.  Anyone from the public care to address the Council?  Thank you, sir.  If you could give us your name and address for the record please.

PUBLIC PORTION

Sean Hopkins, Gervic Street, Flanders.  I’m here to find out if the Council has been approached about funding a new study for the sewers in Old Flanders again. 

President Labow:  In Old Flanders?

Sean Hopkins:  Yes.

President Labow:  Which street do you live on?

Shawn Hopkins:  On Gervic Street.

President Labow:  Ger??

Sean Hopkins:  Gervic Street.

President Labow:  Oh, Okay.  Mr. Canning.

Mr. Canning:  That issue will not be…it will be on the meeting after November 26th.  December, Lisa what’s our first meeting in December?

Mrs. Lashway:  December 10th.

President Labow:  No.  We were supposed to…oh we changed it to December 10th?  I thought we were going to do it…

Mr. Canning:  We’re still waiting for Mr. Buczynski to come up with the proposal on that.

President Labow:  Okay, so we are moving it.

Mr. Canning:  Originally it was going to be November 26th, it looks like it will be a topic on the Agenda for the first meeting in December, which I have a note on my calendar to give you a call.

Sean Hopkins:  Has the Council been asked for funding either out of this years’ budget or for funding for next year?

Mr. Canning:  No.  Nothing yet, it has just been a proposal.  It’s going to be up for discussion that night.  There will be a backup memo for Council.  If Council is aware, there is a group of residents from Park Place that have been meeting on this.  The engineer was asked for an estimate as to design costs and that will be on for Council on that night.

Sean Hopkins:   That’s December 10th?

Mr. Canning:  That’s the meeting Lisa, December 10th?

Mrs. Lashway:  Yes.

Mr. Canning:  Yes.  December 10th.

Sean Hopkins:  Yes.  Then I have nothing further.  Thank you.

Mr. Canning:  I didn’t forget about you, you were in my Google calendar to notify.

President Labow:  Thank you.  Anyone else from the public?  Seeing none.  I close the public portion.  Council Comments.  Mr. Ferrante.

OLD BUSINESS - none 

NEW BUSINESS - none

COUNCIL COMMENTS

Mr. Ferrante:  Nothing this evening.

President Labow:  Mr. Nicastro.

Mr. Nicastro:  Nothing this evening.

President Labow:  Mr. Perkins.

Mr. Perkins:  Nothing. 

President Labow:  Mr. Roman.

Mr. Roman:  Nothing.

President Labow:  Mr. Staszak.

Mr. Staszak:  No, nothing.

President Labow:  Mr. Mania.

Mr. Mania:  I want to thank the Administration for these nice comfortable new chairs. 

Mr. Canning:  Thank Lisa.  I have to give credit where credit is due.  Mrs. Lashway…I was swamped and she picked up the slack for me.  Thank you, Lisa because I let it languish for months. 

Mr. Mania:  Thank you.

Mrs. Lashway:  I had to get them before the money went away.

President Labow:  Yes.  Had to get them…

Mr. Staszak:  Spend that money by the end of the year.

Mr. Mania:  I’d like to congratulate my fellow Council members for a successful election for the seats that were open.  The other thing is I wonder if we can have any consideration for a donation to the people in the Philippines.  We have our kitty, would we consider something like that?

Mr. Roman:  Send an e-mail.

President Labow:  Yes, send an e-mail and everybody can reply. If there’s a specific organization, possibly the Red Cross or something that’s…

Mr. Staszak:  Red Cross.

President Labow:  Yes, Red Cross is going over there.  I think that’s probably a good idea.  Anything else?

Mr. Mania:  Just a thought.

President Labow:  I’d like to say, we had Veteran’s Day this weekend.  I just want to thank all of our Veterans who have served so valiantly for our country and our freedoms as well as thanking their families for the sacrifices that they made and without all of their efforts, we wouldn’t be where we are today.  I’m sure everyone agrees that we are most thankful to all of them…everyone who serves.  With that said, I would like a motion to adjourn.

Mr. Mania:  Just a quick comment before we move that.  Lisa spent a lot of time with this Highlands Preservation Area Ordinance, so don’t throw it away because it will be very costly to make it over again.  Right, Lisa?

Mrs. Lashway:  Yes.  If you want to give it back, I can put it in your packets next time.

Mr. Mania:  Yes because how many pages was it?

Mrs. Lashway:  150.

Mr. Mania:  Yes.  150 pages. 

President Labow:  Yes.  Actually, if you guys just want to give Lisa back the whole packet and you can go through and pull it out.   Just give the whole packet back.  If you just leave it in your folder then they don’t have to take it all the way out and readjust.

Mrs. Lashway:  You can just leave it in your folders.

President Labow:  Yes.  Just leave it in your folders because then they don’t have to put it back in the folder because you have to hand your folder in.  Just so everybody in the public knows, Miss Masser, our Deputy Clerk years ago…last year had come up with the idea of having permanent folders so we just keep getting the same folders, so we don’t waste money on getting new folders each time, which I think was a phenomenal idea.  We are always thinking of ways to save money.  Excellent, excellent idea.  Could I have a motion to adjourn?

Mr. Mania:  So moved.

Mr. Staszak:  Second.

ADJOURNMENT - Motion made and seconded. All in favor, none opposed, the meeting was adjourned at 7:56 p.m.
