Mr. Perkins:  Thank you, Madam President.  I just want to comment on piece number 22, the letter from Jersey Central Power & Light, their Notice of a Proposed Increase in the Societal Benefits Charge.  Even though that is an increase, that is a beneficial charge which goes a long way in providing help and assistance under the New Jersey Clean Energy Program and the direct install, which we also have the Resolution awarding the contract to Donnelly for getting some upgraded work being done here at a much reduced cost.  As I’ve always said, we pay for it out of our user fees, we ought to take advantage wherever humanly possible.  I just wanted to bring that to everyone’s attention.

ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

President Labow:  Administrative Reports, Mr. Mayor.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I spoke enough already.  Perhaps Mr. Canning would like to speak at this point. 

President Labow:  Mr. Canning.

Mr. Canning:  Sure.  Thank you, Madam President.  Just a couple of things.  First off, the Turkey Brook Surveillance Project, which was included in this years’ budget was just recently completed, so that’s fully operational now.  Hopefully that will be able to cut down and help the Police Department in investigating vandalism complaints up there, as well as trying to protect our valued property up there a little bit more.  We’ve had it posted for months, but now it’s fully operational, so we are glad to see that.  Second, fleet analysis, I ran most of the report today.  We’re going to tidy it up a little bit and try to get it to Council by weeks’ end.  The numbers on the second third of the year…as good as they were after the first third, they are better right now, so we’re very pleased with the progress of how fleet is going.  It’s saving the Township money and I think Council is going to be very pleased with the results.  We’ll try to have that to each of the Council members by the end of the week.  Last, but not least, the Tot Lot Resolution, which was on today.  We are extremely pleased with the proposal, by both of them.  I have to say, the Committee was incredibly impressed by both Suburban and Leathers & Associates.  The Leathers proposal really, really made everybody excited.  What really grasped the Committee and what I think Council is going to be pleased with and the community is the emphasis they had on it being a community project.  Even their concept phase, they don’t come in and say here, this is what we think you should have.  In their proposal, they actually engage the community, especially the kids, whether it’s a public comment type of setting or in the schools, or whatever, but they get feedback from the kids who are actually going to use it.  Based upon a lot of those ideas, they tailor it and make it truly a community event.  We are very excited towards contracting Leathers and we’re hoping this can get the groundwork going and we can put a shovel in the ground anywhere between November and January.  We know it’s colder, but the goal it have this project up and available for public use by the end of winter.  It’s very, very positive. 

President Labow:  Excellent. 

Mr. Canning:  And last, but not least, three phase power in Turkey Brook, that is nearing the end of the project.  On that, we have been held up a little bit by the utility, a little bit of frustration on our end, but it looks like we’re in the last week to 10 days of that project.  When that’s operational, we’ll be able to light both the football game fields and the football practice field at the same time.  In addition, soccer is looking for lights.  Turkey Brook will really be able to have the full use that we really want to see.  

President Labow:  Excellent.  Anybody from Council have any…Mr. Perkins.

Mr. Perkins:  Yes.  Thank you, Madam President.  Mr. Canning, can you just give us a real brief update on the County’s issues relative to our solar panels in the back.

Mr. Canning:  Yes.  As I’ve alluded to before, it’s tied up in litigation.  The County is kind of a bystander in this, it’s between the designer and subcontractor over bond issues.  They had promised from the get go, I think I forwarded an email from the one representative, that they are hoping it to be short, however, whenever it comes to litigation, it’s never short.  It would be nice if they worked through these issues in short order, I’m not hopeful about that.  If and when they do, we can expect this process to move forward and we can see the parking garage, which we would really, really like to see.  I don’t have any timetable on it right now. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  I do have one other item, if I may.

President Labow:  Yes, Mr. Mayor.   

Mr. Perkins:  Can I finish that one there, Mayor? 

President Labow:  I’m sorry.

Mr. Perkins:  Thank you, Madam President.  I just wanted….I appreciate that Sean.   I just wanted to get that one on the record, especially for any of the residents or others who are viewing this either on Youtube or on our website.  Through no fault of our own, this is just a litigation, which we all sitting up here knows what happens when litigants start getting into the picture.  Inevitably, I’m still under the belief that we are going to get this solar array in the back and start seeing that savings at no cost to the taxpayers of Mount Olive.  Sooner or later, we had hoped for this year to start realizing some of the savings, hopefully 2014 they can get this resolved and get work underway.

President Labow:  Yes.  From what I understand from the memo, some of the projects that had already begun…

Mr. Perkins:  Are on hold.

President Labow:  ...they’re going to finish, but we haven’t actually begun yet, so that’s why we are still in the larger holding pattern right now.

Mr. Perkins:  At least we’ve been approved Madam President, so now we are just on the list.

President Labow:  We’re just on the list and hopefully we’ll get it done sooner rather than later, which will be excellent.  Did you have any other comments?

Mr. Perkins:  No, that was it.

President Labow:  Mr. Mayor.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Sorry.  I was reminded of the fact that Mount Olive is once again participating in the McMatch Competition, which is a food donation.  If you remember last year, we were the winner.

President Labow:  Yes.

Mayor Greenbaum:  We’re looking to do the same this year so we’ll be looking for contributions from the residents and the businesses in town and hopefully, once again, we can succeed in being the most generous community in Morris County.

President Labow:  When is the deadline?

Mayor Greenbaum:  Lisa, do you have that info?  You have to come up to the microphone.

Mrs. Pignitaro:  September 30th.

President Labow:  September 30th.

Mayor Greenbaum:  The 30th.

President Labow:  It’s a pound thing again…per pound?

 Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.

President Labow:  Per Pound.  Excellent.  That means lots…

Mayor Greenbaum:  Monetary donations are accepted as well.  We were very successful in both areas last year.

President Labow:  Yes, the monetary donations are extremely important too because we don’t give the fresh produce and meats and things like that.  That’s how we disperse the money, usually it’s a gift card for the various grocery stores.

Mayor Greenbaum:  We’ll be looking for a large monetary donation from Dorsey and Semrau this year because I know that this is a very important…

President Labow:  It’s extremely important.

Mayor Greenbaum:  …extremely important and a dear to their heart effort that the Township engages in.

President Labow:  Excellent.  We also have for September 21st  and 22nd, we have our Mount Olive weekend coming up.  We’re having the fresh produce here at the Town Hall on the 21st.  I think 11 to 3pm I believe and then the Tour de Mount Olive on Sunday.  I didn’t want to steal your thunder Mayor, but we’re getting close, we want lots of people signing up.  I’ll be planted at the registration table, since I think I forgot how to ride a bike and I haven’t been able to buy one of those adult tricycles yet.  Maybe next year.  That will be a picture we don’t want to see, ever. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  I have no response.

President Labow:  I set you up for it and you just passed on it.  That’s okay.

Mayor Greenbaum:  It’s a new, it’s a new me.

President Labow:  I’m having heart failure here, I can’t stand it.  Next on our Agenda, we have our Council Reports and Mr. Ferrante.

COUNCIL REPORTS

Environmental Committee - none
Lake Issues – none
Library Board Liaison
Mr. Ferrante:  The only thing I have is also on September 21st, from 11 to 3pm is the Library’s Fall Festival. 

President Labow:  I’m sorry, Mr. Perkins.

Mr. Perkins:  No Legal?

President Labow: Did I pass you?  I’m sorry.

LEGAL MATTERS

Mr. Semrau:  Yes.

President Labow:  I passed right by Mr. Semrau.

Mr. Semrau:  I just want to know who stuck up for me, Council President.

President Labow:  Yes.  There you go. 

Mr. Semrau:  Who reminded you?

President Labow:  I was thinking more in terms of our Executive Session.

Mr. Semrau:  Good evening.  Just a few things.  First, you may recall that previously the governing body authorized the approval of the Developers’ Agreement with Siemens.  In order to make sure it was expedited, we had a few bumps in the road, but last week we did come to resolve and address all of the issues.  Mr. Canning did a terrific job in making sure that there was…struck a balance between making sure we get this development going, but also protecting the interest of the Township.  We’re set to go with respect to that Developers’ Agreement.  For Executive Session, I’d like to update the governing body on pending litigation, Uhrmann verses Mount Olive Township.  The only other item I want to mention is we have a new associate in our firm, he is here this evening, his name is Joe Bock.  He’s not here to cause trouble, he’s here to observe tonight.  We are real pleased to have him.  He’s clerked in the Morris County Superior Court.  He grew up in Morris County, he went off to college in upstate New York and did great things aside from just being in Law School.  He got very involved and did a lot of research and a lot of writing and we’re real happy to have Joe.  I guess the most important thing I want to tell you is Joe is a resident of none other than Mount Olive Township.  He’s real excited to be here.

Mr. Roman:  A former neighbor of mine.

Mr. Semrau:  We’re only talking about the positives here.

President Labow:  Our condolences to you.

 

Mr. Semrau:  We’re real pleased to have him and he’s excited to be here.  I just wanted to introduce you to Joe.

President Labow:  You could have sat up here.  We would have let him.

Mr. Perkins:  You could sit up here behind him.

Mayor Greenbaum:  We even let the Boy Scouts sit up here.

Mr. Semrau:  We wanted him to see everyone this evening.

President Labow:  You wanted him to see, there you go.

Mr. Semrau:  We didn’t want to put him in the hot seat, we wanted to just introduce him.

Mr. Perkins:  It’s like punishing him.

President Labow:  Mr. Semrau, I apologize for skipping over Legal Reports, it’s so rare that you’ve graced us with your presence, I miss you. 

Mr. Semrau:  Great.

President Labow:  No, actually we are very happy to have Mr. Semrau here with us this evening, as always.

Mr. Semrau:  Thank you.

President Labow:  I’m going back on schedule here, with our Council Reports.  Mr. Ferrante, do you want to continue with your reports? 

Mr. Ferrante:  That’s all I had, just the Library.

President Labow:  Thank you.  Mr. Nicastro.

Safety Committee Liaison - none

Mr. Perkins:  Thank you Madam President.  The Board of Health, at our last meeting, passed a Resolution approving the Registered Health Inspector to replace Carl Reiners.  We also passed a Resolution for a Deputy Registrar, as well as an Assistant Board of Health Secretary for that Department.  There is now sufficient backup in case somebody is not in.

President Labow:  Excellent.

Mr. Perkins:  That’s all been passed. 

President Labow:  Very good.  Thank you.

Mr. Perkins:  Nothing other than that, Madam President.

President Labow:  Alrighty, Mr. Roman.

Board of Education Liaison Report
Recreation Liaison Report
Mr. Roman:  This past Friday the Mount Olive Junior Marauders Prep Rally was held.  In attendance, was the Mayor, Mr. Nicastro and myself.  We did the usual ceremonial tossing of the footballs.  I threw an 80 yard pass which was perfectly caught. 

 

President Labow:  I’m sorry I wasn’t there.

Mr. Roman:  It was only 5 yards, I’m sorry.  Of note, as always, they introduced theRybasack winners from previous and in attendance were several previous winners.  Of note, Officer Stan Pych was present along with the now a current high school football assistant coach, Brian Bublitz and I believe he is also a substitute teacher.  Segueing into the Board of Education, former New York Giant Lee Rouson is now going to be a volunteer on our high school football team. 

President Labow:  Wow!

Mr. Roman:  That should be a good motivation for the young gentlemen.  School starts tomorrow.  Drive safely and that’s it.

President Labow:  Very good.  Thank you.  Mr. Staszak.

MOTV Committee Liaison
Mr. Staszak:  Yes.  The MOTV will be meeting in two weeks.  We are still, for anybody watching, we’re still looking for sports and recreation videos to air on MOTV.

Mr. Mania:  I thank everyone. 

President Labow:  Thank you.  Welcome Back.

Mr. Mania:  Thank you.

TNR Program
President Labow:  I wasn’t able to make it to the Prep Rally Friday night.  I actually was here at Town Hall.  We were trying to resurrect the Mount Olive Park Partners Group.  I met with the previous board and some new members for the next board, so we’re trying to get that underway.  With the Mount Olive TNR Program, we are continuing to deal with the issue with the cat hoarding situation.  They have…they’re down to about 40 cats right now.  They’re having continuous adoption days over at Pet Smart in Succasunna and also in Tractor Supply in Mount Olive.  We thank the Mayor for posting the information on the Facebook page and trying to get these little cats out there and find them forever homes.  We’re also gearing up for our fall yard sale.  I will give you further information on that when it becomes available.  Without further ado, I’m going to open up the meeting to the public for final Public Portion of the evening.  Seeing no one from the public.  I close the Public Portion and we’re going to have our Council Comments.   I also want to just update the Executive Session, it’s going to be Contract Matter not Personnel Matter, its Contract Negotiations.   Council Comments and then I’ll ask Mr. Perkins to move us into Executive Session.  Mr. Ferrente, any Council Comments this evening? 

PUBLIC PORTION - none

OLD BUSINESS - none 

NEW BUSINESS - none

COUNCIL COMMENTS

Mr. Ferrante:  None.  Thanks.

President Labow:  Mr. Nicastro.

Mr. Nicastro:  It’s good to see you back Mr. Mania.

Mr. Mania: Thank you.

Mr. Nicastro:  That’s it.

President Labow:  I thought he was going to say more. 

Mr. Nicastro:  What else?

President Labow:  That was very, very important.  Mr. Perkins.

Mr. Perkins:  Thank you, Madam President.  I just want to remind everyone, this time next week, you’ll be going to sleep and then waking up to September 11th.  Everybody, hopefully still remembers what transpired on September 11, 2001.  We are now coming into 2013, those lives that were lost, not just at the Trade Center, but at the Pentagon and also at Shanks Field in Pennsylvania.  We should always remember that we are vulnerable here.  We live in the greatest country in the world and there are people out there that would take that freedom away from us at the drop of a dime.  That’s it, Madam President. 

President Labow:  Thank you.  Mr. Roman.

Mr. Roman:  I have nothing.

President Labow:  Mr. Staszak.

Mr. Staszak:  Nothing.

President Labow:  Mr. Mania.

Mr. Mania:  Nothing.

President Labow:  I have nothing this evening.  We are going to move into Executive Session.  We’re going to have it here in this room.  I’m going to ask Mr. Perkins to move us into Executive Session.  We won’t be taking any further action after our Executive Session.  Mr. Perkins.
