Mayor Licitra: I have a couple of proclamations, three to be exact. Before we honor our guest of honor I would like to make a couple of proclamations and because I want to invite the basketball team and their supporters into the cafeteria. We have some light refreshments.

Proclamation - National Day of Prayer (May 2, 2002)

WHEREAS, Civic prayers and national days of prayer have a long and venerable history in our constitutional republic, dating back to the First Continental Congress in 1775; and

WHEREAS, The Declaration of Independence, our first statement as Americans of national purpose and identity, made "the Laws of Nature and Nature's God" the foundation of our United States of American and asserted that people have inalienable rights that are God-given; and

WHEREAS, The Supreme Court has affirmed the right of state legislatures to open their sessions with prayer and the Supreme Court and the U.S. Congress themselves begin each day with prayer; and

WHEREAS, In 1988, legislation setting aside the first Thursday in May in each year as a National Day of Prayer was unanimously by both Houses of Congress and signed by President Ronald Reagan; and

WHEREAS, The National Day of Prayer is an opportunity for Americans of all faiths to join in united prayer to acknowledge our dependence on God, to give thanks for blessings received, to request healing for wounds endured, and to ask God to guide our leaders and bring wholeness to the United States and her citizens; and

WHEREAS, It is fitting and proper to give thanks to God by observing a day of prayer in Mount Olive when all may acknowledge our blessings and express gratitude for them, while recognizing the need for strengthening religious and moral values in our State and nation; and

WHEREAS, this year marks the 51st Annual National Day of Prayer with this year's theme, "America United Under God".

NOW THEREFORE, be it proclaimed that I, Paul R. Licitra, Mayor of Mount Olive Township do hereby proclaim, Thursday, May 2, 2002 to be designated as A Day of Prayer in Mount Olive and encourage our citizens to observe the day in ways appropriate to its importance and significance.

Mayor Licitra: My third duty tonight and very pleasurable, I'd like to first invite the coach up. Let me give you a little background as it was written down and then I am going to have Steve give you a little background about his team, I am sure he has some things to say. Then I am going to do a reading of a proclamation, then we are going to hand out some certificates. The Mount Olive Middle School Girls Basketball team achieved and unbelievable season this year. After finishing their regular season with a very impressive 11 and 0 record they went out to compete in the Morris County tournament. They were the number one seat in the tournament and played three games on their way to becoming the 2002 group four champions. Throughout the season three eighth graders who were not only strong players, but also strong leaders as well anchored the girls. Megan D. Ruggiero, Stef Cochran and Karen Szwack led the most of the eighth grade team throughout a season in which they were only losing a game 2.0 at the start. The team improved upon a season last year in which they had only two wins all together. They deserve great recognition for the way the played this season and came together to work and have fun as a team. This team showed that when a couple of friends and players set their minds and hearts to something, anything is possible. Good luck to the graduating eighth graders and get ready to repeat you sixth and seventh graders. Mount Olive is very proud of you as we are most of our athletes. When they do something like this, we are even more proud of you. Thank you very much.

Steve Stoner: For those of you who aren't a parent or at any of the games, just to let you know the entire season was the girls. I made a comment last year to Mr. Stansbury, the Athletic Director and I said that if you ever needed a coach since I coach the soccer and I know many of the girls at the middle school now, that I would fill in if you needed a spot. I guess I couldn't have really asked for a better time to fill in because they probably taught me more about basketball than I taught them. I went in not knowing how to shoot a foul shot, not really being able to do a lay-up and now I am at about 50% free so I am kind of happy about that. So I could not have asked for a better group to work with. Like the Mayor said from what he read, they are a great group of girls, they are also a great group of friends and that made the season that much more enjoyable and to coach, thank you for that girls.

Mayor Licitra: I have a proclamation to read honoring the Middle School Girls Basketball Team.

WHEREAS, the Mount Olive Middle School Girls Basketball Team achieved and unbelievable season this year; and

WHEREAS, after finishing the regular season with a very impressive eleven and zero record went on to compete in the Morris County Tournament; and

WHEREAS, they were outstanding in the tournament played three games on the way to becoming the 2002 group four champions; and

WHEREAS, the team deserves great recognition for the way they played this season and came together to work and have fun as a team.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT PROCLAIMED that I, Paul R. Licitra, Mayor of Mount Olive Township do hereby proclaim Wednesday May 1, 2002 as Mount Olive Middle School Girls Basketball Team Day in Mount Olive Township.

Mayor Licitra: So really the highlight to this ladies is really tomorrow when moms and dads ask you to clean the room you say no it is my day. Like I said we are really proud of you. We have some things to give you. As I said please join us we have light refreshments in the cafeteria. Steve, do you want to call out names and say something about each lady. You definitely could.

Steve Stoner: They know where I stand on everything, so we are pretty good at that point.

Mayor Licitra: By the way one of the girls was talking out back and they say they are going to have a speech at Steve's wedding so they have something on him.

Steve Stoner: The were a great group of girls so I don't want to single anyone out or anything.

Mr. Spino moved for approval of Consent Resolutions 1 through 21. Mrs. Miller seconded the motion.

Mrs. Miller: I have a question on No.16 There is a conservation easement for block 7,000 lot 45, there is a map and I thank the Administration for the map, but my question is, is the map alone sufficient or does there seem to be any written description of that easement. It is kind of an irregular line.

Mr. Dorsey: There is an actual deed of easement with a description towards the conservation easement.

Mrs. Miller: Okay, that is what I was concerned about, thank you.

Mr. Spino: Resolution No. 5. I was under the assumption that our CFO was going to do that.

Mr. Dorsey: The CFO is going to do the principal amount of work but she is to have the ability to call on Higgins if she sees fit. He is supposed to at least review the work so he can presumably certify.

Mr. Spino: And she is going to do the bulk of the job.

Mr. Dorsey: She is left in control as to how much the system she needs.

Mr. Spino: On number four are we establishing now for that Environmental Education Center how much land they are going to use?

Mr. Dorsey: What we have done, Cindy did you do the map?

Ms. Spencer: There are five maps provided and they are numbered with the options that were presented at the workshop. It was agreed that we would look to award the Environmental Center with the smallest portion I believe it is option number five to begin.

Mr. Dorsey: It essentially dedicates beginning with a half of acre then it gets as large as an acre and a half was the discussion, it is a commitment for five years but if the town needs the property for any other purpose upon one year's written notice for some other public use it can terminate then.

Mr. Spino: The other is No. 19. I assume was discussed at a workshop and I was not here. Are we breaking away now from saying that they can't work on Sunday to allowing them to work on Sunday?

President Scapicchio: One day a week Earl. What happened in this instance was that storm that blew through Mount Olive, it tore down one of the building walls that was not completed yet and they had some steel being delivered and they potentially need this one day to put that back. Anyone else?

Mr. Spino: Also I will be voting no on number seven. In my opinion am a little old fashion, I don't think all those kids have to drive their cars to school but that's me.

President Scapicchio: Two clarifications. The cops program, the question I have, that is a completely shared expense between the Board of Education and Mt. Olive Township after the grant expires. I know that officer has dedicated 100% of his time to the schools. What happens in the off season when there is no classes being held?

Ms. Spencer: He would be working on the programming for the following year. All of his efforts will be dedicated to work to be performed within the schools.

President Scapicchio: So his twelve month salary and benefit package is shared 50/50 by this Council and the Board?

Mr. Dorsey: The resolution authorizes making the application for the federal funds. It also authorizes Chief Katona to essentially negotiate a memorandum of understanding with the Board of Education that after the third year that they would share equally the cost.

President Scapicchio: That is the understanding of the Council?

Mr. Dorsey: Yes. So there is no misunderstanding, the Board of Education has not signed that memorandum of agreement. Presumably they will because…

President Scapicchio: Well if they don't we won't move forward with hiring the officer. Also, No. 3 John, the $25,000 sum for Vizzoni, I thought that was $12,500 per building. Shouldn't that be in hand?

Mr. Dorsey: No, they have already taken the one building down. The Muel Baver house was the second building to take down.

President Scapicchio: So that number is the right number?

Mr. Dorsey Right. All their work is done and this is a precurser to a resolution I assume you will do to give the Historical Society the right to maintain, refurbish, etc.

PUBLIC PORTION ON CONSENT RESOLUTIONS

President Scapicchio: Anyone from the public on consent resolution No.1 through 21?

Dave Jones, Budd Lake, NJ: I am curious, the Resolution No. 17 and No.18, are they regarding the same $7 million in change and bonds?

Mr. Dorsey: Yes.

Mr. Jones: Is that the total amount in bonds that the Township has out or is there other bonding?

Mr. Dorsey: That is the total amount of unbonded indebtedness in which the Township has authorized I am going to say over the last five years.

Mr. Jones: Have we paid this down at all over the last five years?

Mr. Dorsey: This is the amount that has not been paid off and has not previously been bonded.

Mr. Jones: Is there other bonding that we have currently besides bonding issues with Turkey Brook?

Mr. Dorsey: It is my understanding that this incorporates within it the bonding of all indebtedness that has not previously been bonded and is outstanding and has not been bonded.

Mr. Jones: What has previously been bonded?

Mr. Dorsey: Millions and millions of dollars.

Mr. Jones: I was wondering what the total was.

President Scapicchio: We could get that information from the CFO if you would like that.

Mr. Dorsey: When you say previously, it becomes a question of how far back you want to go?

Mr. Jones: How much current bond debt does the Township have?

President Scapicchio: We can have the Administration get you that number.

Mr. Jones: Thank you.

President Scapicchio: Anyone else from the public on the Consent Resolution Agenda? Seeing none we will close the public portion.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously with the exception of Mr. Spino who voted no on No. 2 and No. 7.

Mr. Guenther: I just wanted to make a comment before I vote yes on all. Since Mr. Spino brought it up on number seven and he was not here at the last meeting when the residents of Carlton Hill were here, to explain my no vote the first reading on the other Ordinance. I feel that this is a piece meal legislation that we are doing, to be consistent with my no vote that I made on School House Lane, I strongly feel this is the school's responsibility and I think I am just as old fashioned as Mr. Spino, but you have to face the fact that when the kids have the cars, I think what has to be done possibly is urge the parents not to buy the kids cars so that they can't drive to the school. Once they have the privilege of driving they are going to drive. The way we are attacking this problem is not the right way. We need the cooperation of the School Board and the School Administration to come up with a comprehensive resolution to the problem. Maybe they can't provide all the spaces on their site, but they also cannot stick their heads in the sand and ignore the problem. So I just wanted to put that out there since Mr. Spino made his comment. So I vote yes for all.

President Scapicchio: We have one item on the non-consent resolution agenda.

RESOLUTIONS NON CONSENT

22. Resolution of the Township Council of the Township of Mount Olive Authorizing the Issuance of a Professional Service contract with the firm of Lynch, Vince, and Higgins, L. L. P in connection with the proposed issuance of approximately 7, 665,000 general improvement bonds for the Township of Mount Olive.


Mrs. Miller moved for approval Resolution No. 22 and Mr. Guenther seconded that motion.

COUNCIL COMMENTS ON INDIVIDUAL RESOLUTIONS

Mr. Greenbaum: Could someone explain it to me? I was not at the workshop meeting, I was in St. Louis.

John Dorsey: In preparation for the sale of bonds, there is often the preparation of a brochure. Sherry Jenkins has requested to be able to call on Higgins for assistance in preparing that brochure and the other financial data that will be submitted and perhaps for meetings with the rating houses.

Mr. Greenbaum: Why is this on non consent?

President Scapicchio: It came in late.

Mr. Greenbaum: There was not any specific objection to it?

President Scapicchio: No, and it was a request by our CFO. Anyone else on Council? Seeing none.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously.

MOTIONS

1. Bill List.

Mr. Spino moved for approval of the Bill List and Mrs. Miller seconded the motion.

President Scapicchio: Any questions or comments? Cindy, beginning with page 10, the last item Lamp Post Electric and continuing on page 11, the last Public Meeting there was a question on one of the vouchers whether or not it was a school related bill, it was related to one of the schools. I noticed that we now have a list from Lamp Post that has it's void of all that normal information. I was just wondering why? The second part of that question is, we were going to look into whether or not this was going to be a bid
item?

Mrs. Spencer: All of the bills that came in that totaled originally over $20,000 on the original list, we have scrutinized them, they all have all been verified that they were services provided to the Township. The services were provided during the years 2000 and 2001. So we will pay only up to $14,000 keeping it under the bid limit. I would advise the owner that we would not be able to call him in for any work and we are in the process of putting together a bid to take bids for electrical work and we will get authorized rates to do any additional work in the Township.

President Scapicchio: Why are all these vouchers for Lampost on this Bill List void any description for an account to be charged to?

Mrs. Spencer: I apologize. I don't know the answer to that.

President Scapicchio: Council do we want to have that listed before we approve it or do we want to approve it and get that information.

Mrs. Miller: If you want to hold it, just that section out, I would not protest.

President Scapicchio: Cindy, would you have a problem if we did that.

Mrs. Spencer: No that is fine.

President Scapicchio: So there will be an amendment to the Bill List, we will hold until the next public meeting. All of the Bills listed beginning on page 10 for Lamp Post Electric and ending on Page 11.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unaminously

1. Approval of a Peddler's Permit for Avshalom Gibli for Mobile Food Vending.

2. Approval of Raffle Application #1033 for the Budd Lake First Aid & Rescue Squad

Mr. Guenther moved for the Approval of a Peddler's Permit for Avshalom Gibli for Mobile Food Vending and Approval of Raffle Application #1033 for the Budd Lake First Aid & Rescue Squad.
Mrs. Miller seconded the motion.

COUNCIL REPORTS

Library Board Liaison Report, Mrs. Miller: We will have a meeting on the second Wednesday of May.

Recreation Report Mr. Guenther: The meeting is next week or the week after I forget which, so nothing new to report.

Mayor Licitra: Bernie if I may, Peter had something to say.

Peter Juran, Mount Olive Soccer Club: I just wanted to thank the Council for the support of the memorandum of understanding that was approved tonight and let you know that we have a signed copy of it here for the Mayor and in addition if somebody would grab that large item in the back. We have a check for the Township.

President Scapicchio: Thank you. It was a pleasure going through that memorandum and this is really a win win situation for the whole community.


Planning Board Report, Mr. Greenbaum: A lot happening at Planning Board. April 18, 2002 was the last Planning Board meeting, two development matters were discussed. Extended stay America in the Trade Zone South was approved. The one issue that took up most of the debate related to the dedication with Open Space as is required within the Trade Zone South. There is a small portion that is to be dedicated in the area where the hotel was to be located which originally was supposed to be restaurants and the way that the plan ultimately came through, did not make sense, so what the Planning Board did was to bank the Open space to be used someplace in a more appropriate area than the Trade Zone South. The other development matter which was discussed was Commerce Bank. Two issues of discussion took up most of that application. The first related to the ability to make left turns off eastbound 46 into the bank which all Planning Board was against. The DOT finally came around and approved the prohibition against left turns off of route 46 into the facility. The applicant redesigned the plan so that the entrance and exits to the bank would not facilitate left hand turns. The Planning Board was concerned about the pin ball effect of stopped cars on route 46, as we are all aware that it is a problem. Ultimately, the other issue which was discussed is that there is a entrance and exit out of Commerce Bank out of the back onto Sandshore Road which would allow access back to the light and back onto Eastbound 46 and it would also allow people to get to the bank by turning at the light onto Sandshore Road and then ultimately into the bank property. The concern related to one particular residence which was directly adjacent from that driveway, and the concern was over noise and light pollution. The applicant was willing to look at all possible options including landscaping on the adjacent homeowners property and that issue has not been resolved and is the only impediment to ultimate approval of that application and I am certain that it will ultimately get resolved to everyone's liking. May 2, 2002, this Thursday we are hearing three development matters. Information Services International which is in the Trade Zone, it relates to additional parking which is required for that building, they originally came in and were looking to extend the parking lot into wetlands buffer area. They have since redesigned the application pursuant to the Boards' concerns and it will now likely pass. The other two that we're hearing are BMW of North America which is simply a change to their parking area and ABC childcare is coming back in and that is an application which relates to the area where River road and Tinc Road, I think it is Cunningham Roofing. They have come in with a revised plan which I believe meets most of the concerns that the Board previously indicated. May 9, 2002, we are hearing Shoprite. Basically the applicant has one more witness and then the objector who is represented by Council is going to put on I believe four witnesses and I think that is going to take up another meeting and a half before it comes to the Board for a vote. May 16, 2002, Woodland Estates is coming back in regarding the proposed development on Second Street in Budd Lake. A couple other matters that are coming up. Wendy's is coming up, Geoffrey Builders, Riad Development Chester Partnership, Toll NJ, and then Brinker is coming in. That takes us basically through July. There were a couple other issues discussed Master Plan Reexamination Report which was submitted to the Planning Board for its scrutiny, that's the report which is coming out of the Master Plan Review Committee and ultimately I think the Planning Board is going to take it up sometime in July and either I assume we will pass it along to Council at that point in time. There was one issue raised which I'll bring to Council's attention. There were numerous people on Planning Board who felt that the Council should pass an ordinance related to charging a fee for special meetings to be used by the Township. Currently when Planning Board has special meetings, to consider an application, the applicant is required to pay for the professionals who have to attend the meetings, such as Planning Board Attorney and Gene and if the environmental consultant had to come. This is a request by the Planning Board to charge an

Mr. Greenbaum (cont'd): additional fee on top of that to help defer some of the costs of running the room and other things that the Town has to incur. It is my understanding that there are several towns such as Madison, Randolph and Parsippany which currently charge a fee for a special meeting outside of the cost of the professionals. So the Planning Board would like us to take a look at this issue and perhaps pass an Ordinance or Resolution.

Mr. Dorsey: The Planning Board should give us a number.

Mr. Greenbaum: $1500 was the number which was discussed.

President Scapicchio: Mayor do you concur with the $1500 number as being the cost of providing the space?

Mayor Licitra: The way the Planning Board is having special meetings because of the activity, I have no problem with that number. My biggest problem with the whole concept is that there is going to come a time when the applicant does not want a special meeting and the Public wants a special meeting and that is where I have problem, so I think it still has to be at the discretion of the Board maybe at that point because…

Mr. Dorsey: The only way it would take over is if the applicant was prepared to pay for a special meeting.

Mayor Licitra: But there are meetings sometimes and you know that as well as I do being a past Planning Board Attorney where the public wants a special meeting to get it going faster, or because people are going to be away, what ever myriad of reasons there might be. I think the only thing I would like to see is language in there saying it is at the discretion of the Planning Board at that point to be able to charge.

President Scapicchio: What would you do in the cases where they had a special meeting and there was more than one applicant?

Mayor Licitra: Normally we have special meetings. The special meeting we usually have use because of one applicant.

President Scapicchio: Why don't you have the Planning Board give us a written recommendation and we will take it up at work shop and have Mr. Dorsey draft an Ordinance.

Mr. Guenther: The only thing I see unfair is this. I have seen sometimes special meetings held because they have gotten back log of other applications that have taken an undue amount of time due to whatever reasons, an opposition or whatever there is. I don't think it is completely fair. If a special meeting has to be held just to catch up with the calendar, and if that is fair to the applicant. I don't know how you handle that situation. Again you have the discretion of the Board there but you are going to have a lot of occasions where there might be an applicant that will say look, this is being forced upon me beneath the deadlines because you are running behind in your schedule and your hearing.

Mr. Spino: The applicant has choices, he can give an extension, we have had in the past where an applicant did not want to give an extension then you have to vote. Whatever you have in front of you as a former member of the Planning Board. If he gives an extension there is no problem. He does not have to have a special meeting. The special meeting is normally at the request of the applicant. I don't see why the Township should have to foot that bill. It took us a while way back when I was on the Planning Board and first elected to Council to get them to pay an Escrow so that we wouldn't have to pay our engineering fees to do their work. That took a while. People were unhappy with that. That has become a savings to the Township. I don't think this is out of line at all.

President Scapicchio: Why don't we have the Planning Board send their recommendation to us in writing
and we will take it up at a workshop.

Mr. Spino: We have the Planning Board here. I think he has given us enough information as far as I am concerned he has given us an amount of money. I think we should have something written up, send it to them, if they approve it, fine. If they want to make changes we will waste another two meetings.

President Scapicchio: Rob, is this a formal request that you are making on behalf of the Planning Board this evening?

Mr. Greenbaum: Yes it is. I think it should be written in light of the Mayor's concern. I think it should be written when an applicant requests a special meeting that this is the fee which it should be charged.

President Scapicchio: We are going to have Mr. Dorsey prepare a draft ordinance and we will take that up at workshop as soon as he is done with that.

Mr. Spino: If we are finished with that I have a question on the Commerce Bank. How big of a piece of property is that?

Mr. Greenbaum: I could get you that information.

Mayor Licitra: You know where that old house is? Right next door to that old house on the corner.

Mr. Spino: There are buildings there but he is saying that they are not part of this application.

Mr. Greenbaum: That's right.

Mr. Spino: That was my concern, the old buildings.

President Scapicchio: Rob where is the Wendy's proposed?

Mr. Greenbaum: Someplace within the Trade Zone South. I have not seen the documentation on that yet.

President Scapicchio: Okay, and Dan and Fran Nelson, when are they coming before the Board?

Mr. Greenbaum: I don know.

President Scapicchio: Okay, good. Thank you for the report.

Open Space Committee Report, Mrs. Miller: I would like to invite you all to the open house for the Morris Land Conservatory. They are having their 20th anniversary and the opening of their new office at wild acres preserve. The date is May 2, 2002 from 4:00 to 7:30 pm. There is going to be a special ceremony at 6:00. I am hoping somebody on the Council could attend.

Legislative Committee Report, Mr. Guenther: No report at this time.

Master Plan Report, President Scapicchio: You heard what Rob had said, the Council is waiting for Planning Board to make their recommendations back up to the Council and we will address that.

Pride Committee Report, Mr. Guenther: None at this time.

PUBLIC PORTION

Bill Sohl, 29 Netcong Road, Budd Lake, NJ: I want to thank the Council for Resolution No.3 on the consent agenda and had a brief discussion with Mr. Dorsey and what I see based on our conversation there is there is two aspects that now have to take place to take that next step. One is and I guess a description that would be some kind of memorandum of understanding between Mount Olive Historic Society and secondly I believe that the property is still technically Vizzoni's? So until a transfer is officially completed?

Mr. Dorsey: Let me say where we are. I have a series of deeds from the Vizzoni group. We have never accepted them because Gene has not yet signed off as far as I know in terms of all the work they were supposed to do within the subdivision. I assume that as of today they must be fairly close to being complete because they gave him a chronology of events that were supposed to occur. They should have occurred during April. I will check with Gene and see whether they finished everything else up.

Mr. Sohl: That is fine. I am acting as project director for the Mount Olive Historic Society for this activity. You know how to reach me, we will work out the details and get together. Thank you.

Ned McDonald, Budd Lake, NJ: This is in regard to Ordinance 21-2002. We are going down the same road we went down before. This Ordinance sort of flies in the face of the resolution that you have to the School Board.

Mr. McDonald (cont'd): I don't see where the safety requirement for this parking is. Has the Police Department made a recommendation on this? The last parking Ordinance I believe the Police Department had made a recommendation, I don't see anything mentioned about that in this one. As your resolution says, it is becoming an absurdity. You are going to restrict parking on this street and you will probably get away with it through the summer because school is out. Next fall it is going to come back and haunt you again. These knee jerk reactions to a group of residents coming up and saying there is a serious safety problem, cars racing down the street, etc. I understand the residents have a not in my front yard feeling about having cars parked there. Again, they are public roads paid for by all the tax payers, not withstanding the moral issues of whether students should be driving at that age etc. In my day they did not have to drive and all of those kind of comments. They are legally permitted to drive. The State has recognized that. I don't think we are sending a good message to the student where we are basically singling them out and putting them in a second class citizen position by saying you guys can't park on the Public Roads.

President Scapicchio: I think the School Administration and School Board is maybe considering them as second class citizens by not providing them with the appropriate amount of parking spaces.

Mr. McDonald: I think this resolution is great, but there are two separate issues here. Obviously the School Board I believe is the root cause of this. I don't think that the Township should be involved in a small special interest group not wanting cars parked in front of their house. If it is a safety issue, the road is too narrow, cars cannot make the turn, school buses can't get down the road, etc. that is one thing. But just because they don't like students parking there and as I have heard people say smoking cigarettes in front of their house, I don't feel those are valid reasons to put parking on streets in the Township just moving down the line. You know what is going to happen. These students are very resourceful, if they have to walk a little further, they are going to it. I just think it is a bad idea. I think you should consider this and also I think you should have the Police Department look into the matter and see if the streets are safe and have cars parked either on one side or both sides.

President Scapicchio: Anyone else from the Public?

Al Weiner, Flanders, NJ: On behalf of the Flanders Homeowners association I just wanted to thank the Council for looking into the drop of the speed limit on Flanders Bartley Road and with the park going across the street. We have our meeting tomorrow night, and just as a ball park, any idea when that would change now that it has been…

Mr. Dorsey: It is twenty days. The other thing is that it is the sign that needs to be put up. We can't enforce the ordinance until the sign is put up so I don't know whether those signs are just stocked or what at this point.

Mr. Weiner: So this way at least we have an answer when somebody says hey it's a week, how come there is no signs.

Mr. Scapicchio: I think the Administration will go through the process of preparing those signs.

Mr. Weiner: A second issue, half of the time on mailings to our development our street on half of this stuff is Palmer Place and on the other half of the mailings is Palmer Court. Who do we find out from to make sure what the street really is supposed to be?

President Scapicchio: The Tax Assessor.

Mr. Weiner: The letter that the Mayor just sent out with the tickets in it for the thing. It came today and it caught our eye.

President Scapicchio: Mayor, where do you get those labels generated from.

Mrs. Lashway: Assessing

Mr. Weiner: So it should match all their mailings, but it doesn't.

Mrs. Lashway: Some say Palmer Place and some say Palmer Court.

President Scapicchio: We will look into it for you.

Mr. Weiner: Thank you

Steven Baker, Flanders, NJ: I am here to thank you all for your support and approving the resolution for recognizing the Mt. Olive Jr. Lacrosse Club. We are getting a real good boost here with your endorsement which helps us out with the insurance aspects although part of our insurance will come from coverage from US Lacrosse itself. We have done a lot so far, we are going to have clinics on June 8th, 9th, and 22nd. So things are starting to come together. You will start to see the kids come out and play in Lacrosse. This was one of the major steps that we had to take to be able to have one of those clinics. We thank you greatly and hope you will be able to enjoy seeing the sport played by the children of Mt. Olive.

Mayor Licitra: What recreation fields are you going to be using?

Mr. Baker: That's a good question.

Mayor Licitra: That is why I asked the question.

Mr. Baker: If you could answer that for me I'd love to hear an answer. Obviously because we are new, we are going to be low in the pecking order of priorities as far as getting fields and we won't know exactly what type of response we are going to receive although we are going to work aggressively to expose as many children to the opportunity of playing Lacrosse from grade two through eight. So I guess it is a question that we are not going to be able to answer right now. For the clinics our hope was and I put in the request for Flanders Parks multi purpose field on the dates which were Saturdays and it was going to be from 8:00 am - 12:00 pm. So far I have not heard back about that. It is going to happen somewhere. We were told there will be a place. We'll have a piece of ground that we can hold it on and that we will work this all out come the season which will be next spring. We will probably be doing some things indoors over the winter in the school. We are trying to get something together with possible use of the high school for an indoor type of clinic.

Mayor Licitra: You were sanctioned by the Township so you have already jumped ahead of one group that was sanctioned by the Township so you are already ahead in the pecking order. Cindy will check with Jill tomorrow because I would hate to have to tell you to get it all started and then disappoint the children and tell them they don't have a field , so lets try to work it out now rather than later. So somebody will get back to you.

Mr. Baker: Thank you.

President Scapicchio: Anyone else from the public? Seeing none, we will close the public portion.

COUNCIL COMMENTS

Mr. Greenbaum: I have a question for the Administration. We had talked about getting some information on what it would cost and whether or not it was feasible to put in a pedestrian stop light at that Flanders Crossing intersection. I don't know if that was something that was followed up on. I don't want it to fall through the cracks.

Mayor Licitra: No it has not. We are still working on it. I have the Chief working on crosswalks throughout the Town. There are other crosswalks that I am interested in as far as putting in some signage and something on the streets so that people are aware that this is a section that you should watch out for. So we are working on it all together. It is taking longer than what I had anticipated but Mark is still working on it.

Mr. Greenbaum: Thank you.

Mrs. Miller: No comment

Mr. Spino: No comment.

Mr. Guenther: A couple things. Mayor, now that you mentioned the people from the ice hockey rink withdrawing their application from the Board of Adjustment, I know there were plans that Gene had put together for the reconfiguration of that intersection.

Mayor Licitra: We are working on it.

Mr. Guenther: How does the retiring of their plan affect those plans?

Mayor Licitra: I have a meeting with Gene and Mark and Chuck on Thursday before the Planning Board at 6:00 pm just to discuss that issue. We were able to get offsite improvements, money I think we are looking
Mayor Licitra (cont'd): at $100,000 for that intersection. Gene had some ideas, so we are going to work to try and improve that intersection as much as we could. I will let you know what comes out of it.

Mr. Spino: I am not sure. I don't think the ice hockey rink had anything to do with the reconfiguration.

Mr. Guenther: I didn't think but I thought because of the impact that would put more emphasis to doing it that maybe since it isn't going through there. The Mayor has answered the question. Secondly, I would like to urge the council, there is a sample resolution that came through from the United Taxpayers of NJ resolution urging the State Legislature to oppose S-1044/A 1926 which will utilize the use of project labor agreements in NJ.

President Scapicchio: We have done this already Bernie. We were one of the first communities. Anything else?

Mr. Guenther: That's it.

President Scapicchio: I just have one comment. May 7, 2002, the Council Committee and the School Board will meet at 5:00 and 6:00 in the Council Chambers. The meetings will be open to the public and we will try to entertain public comment if time allows. Mayor, any final comments?

Mayor Licitra: No.

Motion made for adjournment. All in Favor, none opposed. The Meeting was Adjourned at 8:45 pm.
