ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS

Mayor Greenbaum:  I’ll start.  First of all, I wasn’t here last meeting and I didn’t get to congratulate Colleen on the birth of her grandchild, so congratulations.

Mrs. Labow:  Thank you.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I’m sure you’re very, very proud.

Mrs. Labow:  Very exciting.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I’m sure you’re not getting a lot of sleep.

Mrs. Labow:  I’m getting plenty of sleep, they don’t live with us anymore. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  They all come back at some point, though.

Mrs. Labow:  Bite your tongue. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  We had Movies in the Park.  I’m told it was a huge success, over 500 people attended. 

Mrs. Labow:  Wow. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.  Pretty good.

Mrs. Labow:  Exciting.

Mayor Greenbaum:  The Farmers Market, I want to remind everybody is still ongoing, and now that we’re starting to get into season, I’m sure that there’s going to be a lot more produce.  It’s every Saturday in Town Hall parking lot from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  The next big Rec event that we are working on is the Tour de Mount Olive which is Sunday, September 28th.  I had the opportunity to actually get out and ride the road, the course and preview it.  It is extremely challenging even for an experienced bicyclist like me.  I do suggest that you all

 

start practicing and join me out there for the ride.  It took me about two hours and forty-six minutes to cover the 40-mile course. 

Mrs. Labow:  Wow.

Mayor Greenbaum:  It’s uphill both ways.

Mr. Nicastro:  Literally.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Registration for the Tour de Mount Olive is online.  I was told I was number two, but I’m still getting number one.  Sean.

Mr. Canning:  The only thing I have is we have a great deal of paving that’s coming up.  We’re going to be using our website, Facebook and we’re also going to start incorporating the Everbridge system to notify local residents, that way there’s a minimal inconvenience.  A lot of sections in town, Tulip Ave to the Woodsedge intersection and Woodsedge from Tulip to the CVS area, milling and paving.  It’s all going to be starting later this week weather permitting.   Flanders-Drakestown Road from the school bus garage to the bridge by River Road,  Kemple Lane to River Drive out to Drakestown, that’s going to be paving only, no milling and Shore Road from Route 46, the west end of Shore Road towards Stephens State Park Road and by Sandshore School.  Again, there’s going to be sporadic road closures, flag people present, but we will start incorporating Everbridge, I instructed Director Quinn to start using that system.  Again we’re hoping it to be minimal disruptions, minimal complaints, the goal is none and we’ll get some nice new roads for some of the folks.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I did see also that the State was coming in with road closures on Route 46 running basically from Hackettstown up through a portion of Mount Olive, which I’m sure is going to cause a lot of traffic problems.

President Mania:  That’s that new bridge that’s going to go in.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.  They’re paving as well, though.  It’s going to be ugly.

President Mania:  Interesting enough, today I saw a County worker in front of Turkey Brook.  He was measuring the road, does that mean they’re ready to pave that?

Mr. Canning:  I haven’t been given a date yet, but I would anticipate it’s summer so it’s probably eminent.  Most of your paving jobs happen between now and September.  I’m sure they are really ramping up. 

President Mania:  Freeholder Scapicchio came through?

Mr. Canning:  He always does.

Mayor Greenbaum:  We’ll see. 

President Mania:  We’ll see.

Mayor Greenbaum:  He hasn’t come through yet.

Mrs. Labow:  Mr. Mania.

President Mania:  Any further reports?

Mr. Roman:  Colleen.

Mr. Canning:  No.  Nothing, thank you. 

Mrs. Labow:  I just have a question for Administration.

President Mania:  Sure.

Mrs. Labow:  Sean, what’s going on with the bridge down here, they were supposed to do that work this summer.  Did that get cancelled or postponed?

Mr. Canning:  The last correspondence, I believe that was pushed off until 2015.

Mrs. Labow:  Was it?  Okay.

Mr. Canning:  I’ll confirm that, but I received a letter about a month ago that they received a $1 million grant, which is good news, but I don’t think the work is anywhere imminent.

Mrs. Labow:  They were going to start it already and be done before school opened.  I was just worried if they were going to start it in August.

Mr. Canning:  I’ll confirm that and email Council.

Mrs. Labow:  Good.  The other question I had and I brought this up to you before.  On Netcong Road with some of the storm drains collapsing, there’s some that look like they’re  headed…do we have any kind of plan in place where we actually…can our departments go out and maybe label which ones that should sort of get shored up a little bit?

Mr. Canning:  We just don’t have the personnel to do the entire Township, but what I can do is if they were out there…they do on occasion…we’re still reactive, just in personnel.  We can go out and put on proactive to do Netcong Road.  Again, if we get feedback that’s there’s a problem…

Mrs. Labow:  There was only one.

Mr. Canning:  …we can to respond to it.

Mrs. Labow:  There’s only one that’s in decent condition.  The rest of them are really in a bad state.

Mr. Canning:  We’ll put it in Iworqs.  I know last time we spoke I was actually very happy, they were out I think the same day and fixed the catch basin.

Mrs. Labow:  They were out, yes.

Mr. Canning:  The Iworqs system, it’s had a good track record of success, if we get it in there, they do get to it.

Mr. Labow:  Yes.  They went out and fixed the one, but then you go a little bit further down the road, maybe 50 feet and there’s another one and if they’re there, just do them all and get it done kind of a deal.

Mr. Canning:  Yes.  It’s got to be in the Iworqs. 

Mrs. Labow:  I know it’s hard.

Mr. Canning:  The Road Department has eight personnel for 34 square miles.  In the foreseeable future, we’re going to be reactive. 

Mrs. Labow:  It’s very difficult, I understand.

Mr. Canning:  We’ll get it in the system.

Mrs. Labow:  Great.  Thank you.

OLD BUSINESS - None

NEW BUSINESS - None

LEGAL MATTERS

President Mania:  Any Old Business?  Any New Business?  Any Legal Matters, Jeff?

Mr. Pasek:  Thank you, Council President.  Just one update tonight on the Cobblestone matter.  We just received a report today from Boswell Engineering stating that they’re able to drill a second bedrock test well on the property and to do so within the originally allocated $75,000.00 the Council approved.  We will continue to work with Sean to provide dates for the drillings so that Sean can notify residents.  That’s it for tonight.

President Mania:  Thank you, Jeff.

 

Mr. Roman:  Jeff, what were the results of the first drilling?

Mr. Pasek:  My understanding…Tracy in my office has been kind of spearheading this, but my understanding is that they hit bedrock so they want to do a second test to see if there’s sufficient water to support the proposed development.

Mr. Roman:  If they second test comes back that there’s insufficient water, what’s the next step?

Mr. Pasek:  That, I’d probably have to defer to Tracy.  I can ask her to update Council and to put something to together.  I’m not sure what’s the next step, maybe the Mayor can speak on that.

Mayor Greenbaum:  We’re likely going to have to make some decisions in terms of the viability of the project as a whole.  That’s where we were really with the second drilling issue.  I’m very happy to hear that we’re able
to get it done within the scope of the budget.  We’ll regroup to the extent that property is not viable for the project that we’ve earmarked it for and we’ll have to take steps necessary to move the funds to a different alternative project that we have yet to develop.

Mr. Roman:  We don’t have a contingency plan in place just in case it falls through?

Mayor Greenbaum:  Not at this point in time, but I can imagine that we would very quickly form contingency plans in the event that we decide…

Mrs. Labow:  I have an idea.

Mayor Greenbaum:  …that this particular property is not viable.

Mr. Roman:  What problem does that set us up for with the State?

Mayor Greenbaum:  It’s a legal issue and I’m not sure that anybody knows the answer to the question, but I can tell you this, that from a public policy standpoint, the State is looking for the development of low income housing.  I think that from a public policy standpoint in terms of an argument that Mount Olive Township would be able to make legally, if we came up with another plan for use of the monies, the State would be hard pressed in light of the circumstances of our original project to just simply come in and try and take the money. 

President Mania:  Let’s hope that the second drilling yields water.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I can’t tell you that had we had a plan B that we’d be in any different situation than we are now with plan A if it doesn’t work because the State requirement was that the funds had to be allocated to a particular project, which is what our funds were.  We will quickly move to a plan B and have to make the arguments with the State in terms of where we stand in light of the facts as they develop.  The rules changed, also. 

Mr. Canning:  November.

Mayor Greenbaum:  The rules are changing in November.

President Mania:  Colleen.

Mrs. Labow:  I mentioned at the last Council meeting for a possible plan B.  My suggestion, my idea would be, I can tell you right off in two seconds, I can tell you 12 vacant houses in town.  If we have to go to a plan B, I would like to investigate how many vacant homes, foreclosed homes or soon to be foreclosed homes and try to make arrangements instead of going out there and cutting grass, let’s just make them into low income housing because there’s plenty of them around, I’ll tell you, plenty and they are just deteriorating and becoming all kinds of issues.  That would be my suggestion, hopefully we’re going to follow through with this one, but if not I think that would be a really good plan B. 

Mayor Greenbaum:  It is something we have certainly looked at, at the Planning Board type level where when a new development is being put in, we look at the ability to rather than build new low income housing is to take rehab.  I’m not sure, COAH is so confusing and constantly changing that there are different categories in terms of low income and moderate income housing that you have to add, only a certain amount can be rehab and a certain amount have to be new and a certain amount have to be moderate.  You really need probably three planners getting together in room for three hours to understand exactly what you mean.

 

Mrs. Labow:  The problem with some of the ones that have been sitting vacant for so long, they have such a serious mold problem, they would actually have to be torn down and rebuilt, but the problem with COAH and they might have changed that, if you tear down a structure and you build another one, you have…that becomes a new COAH obligation kind of a thing.  Sometimes, I know we had that come up before Council twice when people were redoing their homes and we were able to, I guess give a pass on that so to speak.  You don’t want people to pay extra for it, but I don’t know, that would be a nice solution to a problem that seems to be creeping all over town.  We’ll see, we’ll see how it goes.  That’s my two cents on the matter, maybe three cents, no change thank you.

Mr. Roman:  It seems like a nickel and a half.

COUNCIL REPORTS

President Mania:  Council Reports.  Mr. Ferrante.

Board of Education Liaison Report - none

Environmental Committee - none
Library Board Liaison - none
Lake Issues
Mr. Ferrante:  The only thing I have is we got a report from Princeton Hydro.  They were out here on July 9th and gave a pretty favorable report of the lake.

Mrs. Labow:  Good.

Mr. Ferrante:  It doesn’t appear to be…it appears that most of the treatment that we’re doing is working with algae and weed control.  That’s it.  Library is next month and that’s it.

President Mania:  Mrs. Labow.

Senior Citizen Liaison - none
Economic Development Committee Report
TNR Program - none
Mrs. Labow:  I don’t have anything to report except there was an Economic Development Committee meeting that Joe, did you make it to that this morning? 

Mr. Nicastro:  I was there this morning, yes.

Mrs. Labow:  How did that go?  I can divert to Joe for that.

Mr. Nicastro:  We just discussed the option with the BASF properties up there, went over some things that Jeff brought up and that was it. 

Mrs. Labow:  Okay.  Great.

Mr. Nicastro:  Nothing else.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Did you guys discuss the Urban Land Report?

Mr. Nicastro:  He briefly discussed it, we got the reports on it, but we didn’t discuss it much today.

Mayor Greenbaum:  What did you think of the report, have you seen the report before?

Mr. Nicastro:  I saw it last week or so.  What I saw, I just went and glanced through it, I can’t tell you I read the whole thing yet.

Mayor Greenbaum:  I wasn’t horribly impressed, I have to tell you.

Mr. Nicastro:  It wasn’t anything…all those little squares and it wasn’t really…

Mrs. Labow:  Yes.  I read through it, I was just like okay. 

Mr. Nicastro:  The other option seemed much better if possible.

President Mania:  Mayor, wasn’t there a letter sent to you from the State about any buildings in Mount Olive that are vacant?  I believe if I what I read was anything over 100,000 square feet.

Mayor Greenbaum:  There is a letter, I haven’t seen it at this point.  Paul Licitra told me about it.  I need to discuss it…

President Mania:  It was given to us at the Planning Board meeting.

Mayor Greenbaum:  Yes.  I haven’t seen it.  I haven’t seen it at this point, so I can’t comment on it.

President Mania:  Can’t comment on it if you didn’t see it.

Mayor Greenbaum:  What I do know about it is that the State is interested in helping us in terms of marketing properties of that nature.

President Mania:  Right.  Right.  Exactly.

Mayor Greenbaum:  The State has been interested in helping us market that property for I don’t know how many years and we haven’t had much success to date.  However, I do see some changes in the wind and I do believe that we are going to start to see some rather heavy development on that side of Route 46 coming forward and as it develops, we’re working on it, I will let everyone know what’s coming down the pipe and it could be rather exciting stuff.

President Mania:  Great.

Mr. Ferrante:  You’re a teaser.

President Mania:  Mr. Roman.

MOTV Committee Liaison - none

Recreation Liaison Report
Open Space Committee Report – none
Mr. Roman:  Nothing on Open Space, but on Recreation, this past Saturday, the 14U Girls Softball won their Babe Ruth Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament by the meager score of 11 to 1.  It was a great game.

Mayor Greenbaum:  How did the 12U do?

Mr. Roman:  They won, unfortunately I don’t have the score.

Mayor Greenbaum:  So, 12U moves on to the next level, 14U’s don’t.

Mr. Roman:  I forget which one of them goes to the actual championship.

Mayor Greenbaum:  12U.  What I was told is that 14U and older, you’re done after this tournament, but the 12U is like Little League World Series kind of thing.

Mr. Roman:  Yes, but there’s a 16U World Series, also. 

MayorGreenbaum:  Okay.  It’s not what I was told.  I was told this is the end for that group.

Mr. Roman:  The 16U, I know they have a World Series, unfortunately we were not able to field a team to compete, but yes there’s a 16U World Series coming up.  It’s remarkable the caliber of girls that we would put out and unfortunately, having daughter’s only, I don’t get to see the boys in action much, but we have great softball players.  I mean a lot of our girls end up going and playing for club teams and their uniform gets recognized throughout the State.  Mount Olive is a powerhouse when it comes to softball, I’m very proud to say. 

President Mania:  That’s great to hear.  Anything else, Mr. Roman?

Mr. Roman:  No.

President Mania:  Mr. Nicastro.

Board of Health Report
Legislative Committee Report - none
Mr. Nicastro:  Nothing on Legislative Committee.   Board of Health, there’s no meeting this month, our next meeting is the third Wednesday of August.  That’s all I got.     

Planning Board Report
President Mania:  We had a Planning Board meeting last week which I think lasted about 12 minutes.  All it was, was Resolutions, so we all had to meet to approve the Resolutions and we were out of there in about 12 minutes. 

Mr. Nicastro:  Quiet time of the year.
