ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

President Labow:  Administrative Reports, Mr. Mayor.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I’ll start and Mr. Canning will finish up.  A very, very, very, very busy weekend this weekend.  I expect to see all of you at every event, especially Mr. Ferrante. 
Saturday, September 21st, 2013

  • 9 am - 11 am  Farmers Market at Town Hall.
  • 9 am - 1 pm  Photo Contest Display Award at Town Hall (I guess the award is at 1:00).
  • 11 am - 3 pm  Fall Festival at the Mount Olive Library. 

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

  • 12 pm - 4 pm  Tour de Mount Olive. A five mile family ride, a bike safety clinic and St. Jude Trike-a-thon. 
  • The restaurants that are also participating in Fall in Love with Mount Olive are Corner Pub, Metro Grill, Budd Lake Diner, and Branda’s Italian Grill. 
  • 6 pm there is a wine tasting at Enzo’s Restaurant.  I’ve already booked a table for eight people at 7 pm.  I think it’s not just a wine tasting, but a dinner with wine tasting.  Hopefully, I’ll see you all at Enzo’s on Sunday night. 

President Labow:  Excellent.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Mr. Canning.

Mr. Canning:  Thank you, Mayor.  If anybody has driven by Flanders-Drakestown lately, the Baptist Church is starting to look a lot better.  The project wrap up was this past week.  During this project they put the cupola back up top, did some repairs up in the ceiling structure, the windows have all been replaced and what was very impressive, as I drive by it every day, the roof is looking really nice.  They put a red roof on the structure, it’s starting to come along.  This portion of the historical restoration is complete.  As Council knows, we have another grant funding, which has been approved, so those bids will be going out probably late fall into early winter with another round of construction into next year.  The next phase, I believe is the exterior stucco and the front steps.  Eventually, the interior will be restored.  You can start seeing it come along and in the end it will be a nice Township Building and something we can use for various ceremonies or what have you.

President Labow:  I just want to ask you a question.  Does that have to be restored to historic standards?

Mr. Canning:  Yes.  The architects, Colleen Hickey, they specialize in that and anything that they’ve been putting in the specs is to that standard.  All the credit in the world has to go to Kathy Murphy on this.  This is one of her labors of love and she’s still involved, as a consultant basis almost, on this.  I was speaking to her about it yesterday.  She deserves the credit for pushing this project along. 

President Labow:  Excellent.

Mr. Canning:  Givaudan Trails, we had a big meeting today with our DEP counter parts and just to touch base on everything, it looks like we’re going to be laying down what they call the stone dust and sub-base on Monday.  The bollards have been up there, we were subjected to a little bit of vandalism.  They are back in.  We are going to start putting some temporary cameras up in the area to catch the actors on it.  We anticipate the trails are really going to start taking shape next week when that sub-base goes in.  It looks like October 22nd is the tentative date for the ribbon cutting ceremony.  The CEO Worldwide of Givaudan will be there, as well as Governor Christie was invited, I think the some Dignitaries and the heads of DEP.  As that firms up more and looks like it’s going to be reality, we’ll certainly invite Council.  It’s a big deal, it really dresses up that area of the Township.  The Morris Canal greenways are already beautiful; this is just going to make it tremendous.  This is the first of three phases.  Eventually, this will tie into the Sussex branch of the trail across the border in Allamuchy and from there down to the Patriot’s Path.  DPW, Doug Philhower has retired.  He was our Foreman in Roads.  Right now, we are conducting a search inhouse among all of our disciplines for a new Roads Foremen.  In the meantime, Jimmy Lynch, I’m very proud to say, has stepped in and is knocking out Iworqs calls left and right and is really catching us up.  It’s been a very difficult year for DPW, we know we had a lot of damage from Hurricane Sandy.  Because of the cleanup, that put us behind the eight ball all year and he’s trying his best to get us up to speed before the winter comes.  We’re going to anticipate a new Roads Foreman

being named about December 1st.  Siemens: large pre-construction meeting today.  The Developer’s Agreement, they complied with everything, it was signed.  Siemens is going to break ground tomorrow.  They are very anxious to get this project moving.  We’re very happy to see this project to take off.  There’s a lot of work behind the scenes.  In the end, it’s a tremendous benefit to the Township.  We’re very happy Siemens chose New Jersey rather than our competitors in the mid-west.  Lastly, Weis, it looks like they took out the permits.  They are going to be coming into Sutton Plaza rather soon.  We’re anticipating between now and the start of January 2014, thereabout.

President Labow:  Excellent.  Excellent.

Mr. Canning:  That’s it.

President Labow:  Anybody from Council have any questions for the Mayor, Business Administrator?  Seeing none.  Next on our Agenda we have Old Business.  Seeing none.  New Business.  We have our Legal Matters.

OLD BUSINESS

NEW BUSINESS

LEGAL MATTERS
Mr. Pasek:  Thank you, Madam President.  Just one item tonight.  Just an update on the Dreamland Amusements action.  They’ve retained Counsel, they’ve filed an answer in the matter.  We’ve started to engage in discovery with them.  We’ll keep the Council updated on any developments in this matter.  There’s nothing else right now until the Executive Session, Madam President.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Discovery is limited to interrogatories and requests for documents, correct?

Mr. Pasek:  It is.

Mayor Greenbaum:  There won’t be any depositions, right?

Mr. Pasek:  We are actually contemplating trying to take a deposition.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Interesting.

Mr. Pasek:  I was speaking with Fred about that today.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Alright.

Mr. Pasek:  I think you have to get a Leave of Court.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.

President Labow:  Alrighty.  Council Reports.  Mr. Ferrante.

COUNCIL REPORTS

Environmental Committee - none
Lake Issues
Library Board Liaison
Mr. Ferrante:  The Budd Lake fall clean up is scheduled for October 12th from 9 am to 11 am.  They will be cleaning up the Route 46 shoreline from the boathouse to the beach.  As the Mayor said, this Saturday is the Fall Festival at the Library from 11 am to 3pm.  I will be there and I will be at the Farmers Market as well. 

Senior Citizen Liaison - none
Planning Board Report
President Labow:  Excellent.  Planning Board or Senior Citizens, Mr. Mania is not here this evening.  I would like to just…for the Planning Board Thursday night, they had a businessman, Thomas Maisano from State Farm there, for he is having a new sign put up.  He had told me that it was very nice experience.  The Board was very pleasant, complimentary and he said it was absolutely wonderful.  I like to hear that, where we have our Boards showing our business owners how much we care about them.  Mr. Mayor.

 

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes, just one other issue that is being addressed by the Planning Board, which is an interesting issue.  It involves the Flanders Tennis and Swim Club that’s looking to put up a bubble for indoor soccer/lacrosse/baseball for a nine month period during the year, so it’s a temporary structure.  It’s appropriate for the zone, but they need a variance because of the height.  There’s been some neighborhood objection based upon the height, which I think is about 50 feet.  That has gone to two sessions so far and likely to be concluded at the next Planning Board meeting.  If anyone has any interest about that, I’m more than happy to get whatever information you need from Planning Board Chairman. 

President Labow:  Somebody had made a comment to me saying that they were opposed to it because being a temporary structure, we wouldn’t receive taxes on it.  My response to that was, but it makes the business bring in more business and you receive more people coming into the area and visiting our businesses and so on and so forth.  I mean, what is your take on that?

Mayor Greenbaum:  It’s a structure that’s basically going to have one field in it.  I don’t imagine it’s going to be bringing in too many people to the town.  The objections have been scattershot to date in terms of traffic, in terms of obviously the height of the building, which I believe is an inappropriate objection.  Obviously, there will be time restrictions on the use of the property, similar to the time restrictions which are throughout the Township, you know at 10:00, the building is going to be closed.  There’s always an argument when someone wants to change something in your neighborhood that they don’t want.  Ultimately, I feel that it will be a benefit generally to the residents of Mount Olive and that there will be a facility for rent during the winter months to do whatever, whether it’s soccer, lacrosse, private parties, whatever the case may be.  During the months that the bubble is down, they’ll be another turf field in town that will be available for rent and I know the owners of the facility have also indicated that they would work with the Township in terms of any open time frames.  It’s obviously a for profit business and several years ago, we changed that zone to a recreational zone, so it’s an appropriate use.  To me the major valid complaint with respect to what they are looking to do is the height of the building.  If it’s near your house…it’s the same objections that we kind of fought when they wanted to put the lights in at Flanders Field.  Even some of the same objections that we heard with Siemens.  It really is not in my backyard kind of argument.  I don’t know where it is going to go, but I don’t sit on the Planning Board, so I will report back, or Mr. Mania will report back in terms of the ultimate resolution.

President Labow: Sounds good.  Next on our report list is Mr. Nicastro.

Safety Committee Liaison - none
Open Space Committee Report
Mr. Nicastro:  Yes, Madam President.  I apologize, I wasn’t at the meeting last week for Open Space, but I left the report, I don’t have it here with me, but there was discussion of the trails and Mr. Canning addressed some of the questions they had this week.  Clean up and stuff at Turkey Brook trails is being worked on and basically that’s what the meeting was, discussing the trails and clean up and stuff.  That was it, there’s nothing on the Safety Committee.

President Labow:  Very good.  I just want to…I was speaking to somebody on the Open Space Committee the other day, Mr. Canning, and they’re going to be giving a budget this year on the plans and one of the comments was that a lot of times money is utilized from the Open Space Fund and the Open Space Committee isn’t made aware of it.  I don’t know how much that’s going on, if it’s still going on, let’s just make sure if there is anything, we just…maybe we should be giving them a report on what’s the funds. 

Mr. Canning:  What Sherry was just saying, we do a Resolution for everything that comes out of Open Space.  Council does get that report and I believe their Chairman has gotten the budget.  I just got the Excel sheet last week and I shared that with them as well.  Something that kind of fell by the wayside, was getting a budget from Open Space in the past and this coming year we want to get that budget, we want to start prioritizing because there are so many things to accomplish in the Township and we can’t get them all done in one year.  We’re going to ask for a prioritization of whether it’s the Baptist Church or Trails or Seward Mansion as to matching funds this year.

President Labow:  I thought it was a valid point and I was thinking maybe when we do a Resolution, whether we could forward it to the Chair of Open Space, just to keep them in the loop because I know we are all busy, but sometimes things fall by the wayside. 

Mr. Canning:  Yes.  I would also offer that the next time they meet, I’ll stay that day and meet with them as well because I think it’s an important time coming up with the budget.

President Labow:  Sherry.

 

Mrs. Maniscalco:  Colleen, I include a recap from the beginning of time with Open Space on my report every month and every month Kathy Murphy was emailed a copy of that report for the Open Space Committee as well. 

President Labow:  Okay.

Mrs. Maniscalco:  We’ve been doing something is what I’m telling you.  We’ve been giving them information all this time.

President Labow:  Just passing on a comment…

Mayor Greenbaum:  You know what’s interesting, we really don’t spend money out of the Open Space and what monies we have spent have generally been at Kathy Murphy’s request.  It’s really difficult for me to understand any complaint that they are not aware of what’s being spent.

President Labow:  It was not so much a complaint, it was more of a comment and it could maybe be a breakdown in communication, but I figured we’re talking about Open Space, I’d bring it up.

Mayor Greenbaum:  The money that’s being spent out of Open Space generally was by Kathy Murphy’s request.

President Labow:  A lot of it is year after year, the same thing with Turkey Brook Park with the…there’s something they’re doing standard as far as the bond repayment for Turkey Brook Park.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.

President Labow:  There’s not a lot of changes going on either.

Mayor Greenbaum:  No, there’s no changes.

President Labow:  That’s what I…

Mayor Greenbaum:  There haven’t been any changes.

President Labow:  I’m agreeing with you.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Okay.

President Labow:  Thank you.  The next thing on the Agenda is Mr. Perkins.  Can we have your report please?

Economic Development Committee Report - none
Legislative Committee Report – none
Board of Health Report
Mr. Perkins:  Yes, Madam President.  Nothing to report, the Board of Health meets tomorrow. 

President Labow:  Okay.  Mr. Roman.

MOTV Committee Liaison
Mr. Staszak:  We’re still looking for some sports for MOTV.  I know we’ve talked to Mr. Roman and again, we are still looking to post some of the sport teams activities on our site.  Thank you.

President Labow:  Who is doing the…Andy Roberts is no longer at the high school?  Did they get somebody new?

Mr. Staszak:  Not that I know of…I don’t know who it is, but I know they have someone that’s replaced him.

President Labow:  Alrighty. 

TNR Program
President Labow:  TNR, we have our Yard Sale coming up on October 11th and 12th.  They’re working on trying to find homes for the cats that were removed from the hoarding situation we had in town.  That’s about all I have to report for TNR.
