SALUTE TO THE FLAG
PRESENTATION – Acknowledge Retirement – Police Chief Paul Reynolds
Mayor Judith Davies-Dunhour - Tonight is a night of great significance not only for the Stone Harbor Police Department but for the entire Borough of Stone Harbor. We are saying goodbye to a police chief who leaves after 30 years of service, we are swearing in the new chief, a new police Captain and three new police officers. As we all know, law enforcement today brings a new set of challenges to police officers. Now, more than ever, police need the support of the community they serve. I speak for the entire council when I say – you have our support.

I would like to welcome the members of the county law enforcement community that are here tonight to show their support of our police department – in particular to show their support of our new chief. I would also like to welcome home those retired members of the Stone Harbor Police Department that are here tonight to show their support for soon to be Chief Schutta and Captain Palmer. It is always a pleasure to see you here in District 13.

So, without further adieu….let’s get started.
Mayor Judith Davies-Dunhour - Retired Chief Paul Reynolds career in Stone Harbor spans thirty years. He began here in the summer of 1985 as a summer police officer and returned to that position in the summer of 1986. In the fall of 1986 he was hired as a full time patrolman. He was promoted to sergeant in 1997 and worked patrol until 2003 when he was appointed to Detective Sergeant. In 2005 he was promoted to Captain and in 2011 became Chief of the department.

On behalf of the citizens of Stone Harbor, thank you for your service.

He was a Temple University student in 1985 and came down to work here during the summer and never thought he would stay, 30 plus years later he is glad he did. Thanked the property owners, visitors and most importantly the residents and the employees that make this town what it is.

PRESENTATION OF BUDGET 3/21/17

Council President Karen Lane

Madam Mayor, We would like to present the 2017 Municipal Budget.

As is the practice, beginning in September Our Borough Administrator, Jill Gougher and our CFO Jim Craft began distributing expenditure histories and worksheets to all department heads. They were instructed to meet with their Council Committees to discuss all operating and Capital Budget requests and prepare to present their requests to the entire Council at the Work Session of October 18, 2016.


This was the first time the entire Council was able to hear directly from each department head what they were requesting and why they were requesting that amount. Council and members of the audience heard and saw a line by line budget request. We heard whether they were able to maintain or, reduce their request and they explained if and why there were any increases over the prior year.

I would like to complement each department head for the manner in which they presented their requests and the effort they made to hold the line on their costs as requested by the Administration and finance Committee


As I previously stated, the focus of our budget is again on the back bay dredging and the unanticipated cost of partnering in the beach replenishment program which required us to contribute $1.5 Million dollars and has been partially completed. Full completion is anticipated by July of this year.
We have instituted a 10 year program for our infrastructure which includes replacing the lift station at 93rd street. If feasible that current structure will become an important piece of our flood risk management project for which we have received a $2.7 million dollar grant. This will allow us to begin alleviating the flooding problem from 87th St to 96th St. along 3rd Avenue. And, we will be partnering with the County on areas of that project. We anticipate beginning the construction of our new Safety Building by Fall.
We are all very much aware that the vitality of this town lies in the three B’s. --- Beach, Bay, and Business areas.

With that said we will be putting through a 1/2cent increase in our budget this year in order to cover the increase in Debt Service for the pay down of Bond anticipation Notes directly related to the Back Bay Dredging Project. Our tax rate therefore, will go from 23.9 to 24.4 cents which translates to $50.00 per $1 million of assessment.


I would ask that when you look at your new tax bill you realize that we bill for the County, School Board, Library and Open Space. So the Bottom number does not all go to Stone Harbor. Look at your Local Municipal Tax for the amount billed by Stone Harbor. For instance on your current tax bill 55% of the bill is County and School related taxes. At this time I would like to turn the presentation of our budget over to Jill Gougher and Jim Craft and to thank them for all of the hard work and effort they put into this process every year.

HEARING OF THE PUBLIC ON MEMORIALS, RESOLUTIONS, PETITIONS & COMPLAINTS
Martha Wright 632 – 7TH Street Avalon here specifically to speak about the Resolution concerning the Lomax Dune Restoration Plan. Here to speak for the trees, because they have no voice and you are prepared to cut down 37 healthy trees for no good reason. She spoke about the tourism dollars, nature based activities, the condition and importance of our dunes. Trees stabilize the soil and hold things in place. She had read it is a preemptive strike and this is nonsense. She spoke about the many types of beetles in the County and the environmental impact on the dunes. She reminded the Council of the importance of trees on barrier islands, their impact on bird migration and to give us information on various types of beetles and how they behave. She asked council to hit the pause button on this Resolution and think further about the impact of this action.
Bob Ashman 10301 First Avenue question about the budget. Are we still putting away money each year for future beach replenishments? Administrator said yes. He asked where it was in the numbers. Administrator said you won’t see anything for this year because we utilized the money for the 1.5 million we had to put up for the beach replenishment that is going on. Next year you will see it back in, we typically do about 500,000.
Elaine Scattergood said her childhood was spent at 88th & Penna Ave in Stone Harbor. She hopes we will spare the trees, there is no reason for cutting them down. Trees are magnificent.
Bunny Parzych 9925 Second Avenue encourage Council to acknowledge that the tourist industry is very great on this island and in CMC, proud of Stone Harbor for its Bird Sanctuary and Garden Club. She believes the place for these pine trees is not on the beach. This issue has been studied and she encourages we move forward with approval of the Resolution. She also hopes we approve the project on 83rd street, homeowners should be supported.
Kathryn Laughlin 19 – 83rd Street said the trees are a real issue, it was studied in Avalon and most of these trees have been removed. No one supports the environment more than her but this is not an appropriate root structure for the dunes and it places our citizens at risk. She also appreciates the sentiments of Council about the project on 83rd street. Thank you for all your support.
