SALUTE TO THE FLAG

PRESENTATION Dedicate Trash Truck

Councilmember Kramar announced that we recently had a friend and co-worker, Jack Gryning, passed away. His co-workers at Public Works decided they wanted to honor his memory and Craig Reeves, Supervisor, designed a logo, public works paid for the logo and it was placed on the new trash truck. Jack was a valued employee for 24 years and the only person to pass away while employed by the Borough. She called on Grant Russ, Superintendent of Public Works who said a few words about Jack and there was a moment of silence. The truck was parked next to Borough Hall for everyone to view.



PRESENTATION Museum Bob Ashman, Terrie Cwik and Bill Stump gave the presentation and answered questions. The Stone Harbor Museum & Maritime Annex is a 501C3 non profit organization established in 1999 as a place for exploring and celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Stone Harbor. It is stated in the Stone Harbor Borough Master Plan that if the new library doesn’t have sufficient space the Borough should find another suitable location for the Museum and one of the public initiatives is to expand the Stone Harbor Historic Museum in a suitable location. The committee announced that the proposed new location for the Museum is the Pebbles at 9400 First Avenue. The owner is a willing seller and would like the building preserved. The proposed plan is for the Borough to partner in a 2nd quarter 2014 application for County Open Space Land Acquisition & Historic Preservation monies to fund the purchase and preservation of the property for use as a Museum & Maritime Annex. Estimated acquisition $1,600,000 - $2,200,000, estimated preservation $100,000. Key Points include Borough submit a 2 phase Open Space Fund application with Museum as non-profit partner. Phase I, land acquisition approx $1,900,000 (no matching funds), Borough owns the property and leases to museum for $1. Phase II historic preservation, approx $50,000 (with $50,000 match), covers elevator & any minor ADA requirements. A projected annual operating expense list, possibility of grants, and plans for a Save the Pebbles Campaign were also discussed.
Council asked what would happen to the building where the museum is now, would they still need it. There was no definitive answer, other building may still be needed. Questions about how much help would be needed by Public Works, how much money would be needed for renovations, where that money would come from, ADA elevator, full time executive director salary, WIFI, and possible renovations of the current museum were discussed. It was also mentioned that the Borough may give the County more space for the Library, taking parking spaces from the lot, and making the Library large enough to fit the museum in. Response was that would not save the Pebbles. The Museum was asked if they could apply on their own and Mr. Ashman said the chances were slim that they would be successful without Borough support. They need a Resolution of support and would like it at the next Council meeting on April 1st.

The following spoke in favor of the Museum proposal

Dick Pike – 10601 Golden Gate

Rev Conrad – 10711 Sunset Drive

Douglas Wear – 370 – 95th Street

Betsy Brett – 136 – 111th Street

Sister James – Villa Maria

Joan Piotrowski 256 – 98th Street


Mr. Ashman said he has names of about 3,000 people that could not make it, but are supportive. Mayors said we will go back and talk amoung ourselves and at the various committee levels and may have an answer probably in April. Mr. Ashman said hopefully, you have your questions answered here tonight and speed is of the essence, he asked that we do whatever consulting amongst yourselves you do and at the next Council meeting come prepared to pass a resolution that says you will apply for it. Then the Museum and the Borough Staff can work on putting the application together. Mayor said hopefully we can do that but she can’t guarantee, people are starting vacations, Easter break etc. Not sure will be ready by first meeting in April but we should be ready for the next one which is April 15th. Mr. Ashman said it will take a month or two to put it together, and the objective is to have the application pristine so there are no changes. Mr. Ashman said he has people at the County willing to help on it too, we have professionals that are going to put their heads together, so we can get it done. Mayor said it will go to committees, Public Works and A&F for review.

DISCUSSION
Rutter Lamp Post Request

Council discussed a request from David Rutter of 11 Ridge Road, Summit, N.J. 07901. He email states that there is an underground conversion underway on the beach block of 118th street and he is interested in installing a decorative lamp post near the beach on 118th street. He states there are many on the island and enclosed pictures. Those pictures turned out to be in Avalon. Council was not aware of any in Stone Harbor and said, if allowed, they would have to be regulated by Ordinance. Sent back to A & F for further discussion.
