Beach, Recreation & Tourism Committee

Monthly Report

Tuesday, September 16, 2014
The regular meeting of the Beach, Recreation and Tourism Committee was held on Tuesday, September 9. The Recreation Advisory Committee has reconvened monthly meetings now that the summer season is over. The Committee met on Monday, September 8. The new members were present including the representative from high school age residents (Rob Giulian) and elementary school age residents (Madeline Hughes). The committee is a good group and it looks like all the members will work well together. Our ages in this committee range from 12 years old to our most senior and original member Marty Conlin.

Final beach tag numbers are in and sales continued to do very well through Labor Day weekend. Overall sales increased by $26, 000 which is roughly 4%. Strongest increase was in the sale of daily tags which increased by 21%. Total sales for 2014 looks to be $725, 259.

The committee has already started working on the holiday beach tag for 2015 so it is ready to go by thanksgiving weekend. The finance office suggested we consult with Avalon and have one 7 Mile Beach veterans’ tag made in order to share with the cost and printing of the tag. It was agreed this is a good idea and we will look into it. Stone Harbor distributed 795 veterans’ tags. I do not know how many were distributed in Avalon.

Fall programs have begun and the schedule is on the Recreation Department’s website. Library programs including Yoga, Zumba Gold and Pilates will continue. Mahjong is offered again several days a week. Thursday evenings a fitness classes called SH Circuits is offered as well.

After school activities taking place on M, W, F are doing well and are well attended. However, we just become aware of an issue with busing the kids from the school to the Recreation Building. This year there is only one bus serving the 7 Mile Island. This one bus is not able to pick up SHES students until 3:50pm and school is dismissed 3:30pm. The bus is required to drop off students first, and ASA last. The kids are not arriving at the Recreation Building until 4:10pm/ 4:15pm. Most parents begin to pickup between 4:30 and 4:45 resulting in only about 30 minutes of play and homework help . The recreation director will work with the school to address this. We would like to continue to offer the activities at our building and hope that between parents and the school transportation can be arranged getting the kids to the Rec earlier.
Our Recreation Director will be working with the new recreation director in Avalon, Sue Ellenberg, to offer monthly programs for the 5-8th grade age group.
In the Recreation Advisory Board meeting we discussed having a more coordinated effort with the school and residents for Trick or Treat night. The suggestion was made that residents who will be home and would like to have children stop in can register with the Borough Recreation Department and a list be provided to parents in both Avalon and Stone Harbor.
(If need be mention Open Space Application…however full presentation is before this report.)

The jubilee was a great success!! The Lobster Bake worked out very well and the feedback was all good. We managed to get everything in before the rain started. Special thanks to each and every member of the Centennial Committee for all their hard work.

The last Farmer’s Market was this past Sunday. Although attendance was a bit lighter than summer Sundays the vendors were still pleased and so were the customers. The committee has been asked to add a second day to the Market – possibly Thursdays. We will take that under advisement. Special thanks to Joan Kramar for all her hard work. Every Sunday she was at the market from start to finish.
There has been a lot of positive feedback concerning the concerts held this summer and many would like to see them continue every summer. The committee will be looking at this as we prepare the 2015 budget. I think it is important to remember that the concerts and other events came out of a dedicated budget for the Centennial and not out of the BRT annual operating expenses. That budget has been depleted. That being said…we will be exploring options for concerts in 2015.
This Saturday is the Chamber of Commerce sponsored Savor September on 96th Street. It is from Noon – 9:00pm. So far the weather forecast is good!
UTILITIES COMMITTEE MEETING HELD 09/05/14 In attendance, the committee.

Water usage – This has been a year when many property owners thought they did not have to abide by the ordinance on sprinkler usage. Our procedure has been to tag a homeowner who is using their sprinkler on the wrong day or time. After 2 years of extensive education we began sending letters to homeowners in violation along with maintaining date/time stamped photos of the violation. We have had two homeowners who ignored our letters and continued to water when they wanted rather than following the ordinance. These two were referred to the courts, one was very nice, apologized and paid a fine; the second has opted for a trial. To be continued. Our water usage for August 2014 over August 2013 was 1,565,000 less. Good job.

Grant Russ and I met with Jim Craft to review the 2014 Capital Budget and prepare for the 2015 Capital. Our only major expense will be the beach outfall pipe removal for Phase 3. We are going to attempt to include 111th street in that project if it is at all possible. That will leave us with only 114th st. There is no formal study indicating the useful life of PVC pipes we are utilizing in our infrastructure in place of the lead and terracotta, but the conservative estimate is 50 years. The infrastructure work we are now doing should outlast many of us. By upgrading our infrastructure when we do our roads, we have reduced our MUA fees by $100K since there are now fewer leaks.
We have installed a new fire hydrant at 119th St. & Third Avenue.
Our Utilities Inspector is currently working on obtaining a cost estimate for 2015 of our service install supplies. That should be ready for next meeting. We are also continuing to analyze our labor & equipment fees on installation. Next meeting will be October 3, 2014.
Shade Tree - Councilmember Lane introduced Elaine Heil, Chairman of the Shade Tree committee. Ms. Heil passed out pictures gathered by her committee of trees in town that are in need of trimming due to wires going through the branches.
PUBLIC WORKS Councilmember Kramar reported committee met on September 15th at 9:00 am. Mark DeBlasio was present to update the committee on 3 projects that involved NJEIT and NJDOT. These are projects for 2016 and 2017, mainly water, sewer projects that will be addressed in the Utility Committee meetings. PW portion will be the curbs, sidewalks and paving. These include portions of Second Avenue, 99th Berkley, Sunset, Charles, Corinthian and 95th Street, First to Second Avenue. Old terracotta pipes being replaced with PVC, will last 50 years.
Electric has been installed at the Second Avenue parking lot, lights are on from duck to dawn. CFO Jim Craft is looking at revenue and a decision will be made as to whether or not that should remain a “free” lot. Request to consider Kiosk at 80th street. This is an ongoing discussion. We are conferring with our Solicitor.
We viewed several suggestions for planters for the location outside the Reeds. The Reeds wanted to be neighborhood friendly and make sure PW approved. They will be ordered and paid for by the Reeds and hopefully installed for the Holiday season.
Snow removal and a hold harmless agreement was rewritten with suggestions from our Solicitor. When a resident or homeowner is here in a snow storm, and has physical limitations they can call PW if their cut out has been plowed in. PW will only remove the snow from the curb cut out. Not the driveway or the pavements. Drivers will carry the form for the resident to sign.
Meeting was held to review PW budget, winter trash schedule now in effect, Bulk trash Monday, September 22nd.
General maintenance is constantly ongoing on the Beach, Marina, Grounds, Streets and Borough Vehicles. Borough Events – man hours from PW..Art & Craft 202.5 hrs, Corn Hold Toss 23.5 hrs, Night Out 26.25 hrs, Centennial Celebration 49.5 hrs, Eagles Sand Sculpture 5 hrs, Sandy Paws race 19 hrs and Farmers Market for August 40 hrs.
Farmers Market concluded this past Sunday, very successful season. We added new vendors bringing total to 21.
We held a memorable dedication for the 911 Artifact received from the NJ/NY Port Authority on Thursday, September 11, 2014. More than 500 people witnessed the unveiling and were privileged to hear speakers who had been in the towers and lost colleagues, friends and relatives. Many thanks to all who helped this project come to fruition. As chair of PW I want to thenk all those employees who helped at the last minute to tweak everything. It is indeed a beautiful Freedom Park.

Once approved they will send their recommendation along with potential ordinance changes to Council.

Mayor wanted to bring up a couple of things, as far as the Library is concerned, we are still working with the County on our Library, we were not aware there was a certain budget they are working under and twice the Architect has been over budget on his design and it is not fair to our committee to bring something to us that we fall in love with and then say they don’t have the money to pay for it. We are working and still negotiating and do have it as a closed session item tonight and we will bring you up to date as soon as we have more positive information. Be certain, it is not us dragging our feet, we have been doing our due diligence and are just having a problem with the particular architect.
Mayor said in dredging, committee met on the 10th of September, good meeting, went over a number of different possibilities and options and related costs, what we are probably going to do is the least expensive way to do it which is still very expensive it to have material go to our Stone Harbor Marina at 80th Street , dewater there and be trucked off. We think not incurring the expense of off-loading Site 103 is probably a good thing. We asked Matt to get us a quote on what it will cost to get us to the permit stage, he has done that, it just came in, and we will be discussing that in private session tonight also and hopefully we will be able to charge him to get started on this project. This dredging will hopefully occur next winter, next September/October.
Mayor also thanked everyone who worked on the Centennial it was just wonderful, had a great time, was remiss by not mentioning at the Celebration that Congressman LoBiondo did send a letter congratulating us on our Centennial and gave us a nice proclamation which we will hang.

Upon motion of Councilmember Barry D. Mastrangelo

Seconded by Councilmember Karen Lane
That the reports of committees and officers be received and filed.

Judy Curtis 8531 Third Avenue wanted to make the Council aware of experience this summer with the Police, having communications come out of Avalon. They experienced vandalism at their property on Memorial Day weekend and all summer long they have had 2-3 detectives trying to get in touch with them, they call and leave message and when they try to reach them I can’t. She stated that she calls, they answer in Avalon, they transfer me and most of the time I get a machine in Administration and it says leave a message. I leave a message, then get a call from the officer and it is obvious he did not receive my message. I call again or try to e-mail, one time I received an e-mail from a Sgt and we went back and forth, and now all of a sudden he is not the officer on the case. It has been difficult, I did manage to talk to Sgt Walker and Det. Grunow today. She doesn’t think the communications in Avalon are working in receiving messages.
Barry Hamilton said we need a better sound system so people in the back can hear. On the tennis program is there a tennis building on the tennis court property? Councilmember Davies-Dunhour, said there is a small registration building shown on the board. Mr. Hamilton, it wasn’t mentioned, maybe an oversight. He asked if the 10 or 15 homes that back up to the tennis courts have those people been notified and shown what’s going to happen to their back yards. Councilmember Davies- Dunhour said they have not. But the change itself is on the surface of the courts, we are not creating a new space, just resurfacing what is there. Mr. Hamilton said it is a matter of public awareness, the Borough’s best interest to notify. Councilmember Davies- Dunhour, said it is on the web site they can see the whole thing proposed. Mr. Hamilton said he knows when the bars close there is a problem, public urination, will the bathrooms be locked? Councilmember Davies-Dunhour said yes. He also stated it will be more than $2,000 a year to maintain clay or hard tru courts, it is expensive, he is skeptical of the $2,000. Have we done studies to back this up? Also, thanks for looking into a grant for dredging.
Bill Dougherty 8600 Sunset Drive – Tennis told of his history in tennis tournaments in Stone Harbor staring in 1929. Very much in favor of the new tennis facilities, it will bring people here, the good players here, it did years and years ago. There were about 45 of us that played together at 82nd Street and when Avalon opened their hard tru courts, we all moved to Avalon. Build it and they will come.
