SALUTE TO THE FLAG

PRESENTATION – Wetlands Institute - Dr. Lenore Tedesco PhD, Executive Director explained that this is a Coastal Resiliency Project for Stone Harbor Point, hopefully in partnership with the Borough They are working on a fairly large grant application from National Fish & Wildlife Foundation. The project team includes New Jersey Audubon, Wetlands Institute, Larry Niles & Associates, Richard Stockton College, Conserve Wildlife Foundation, NJDEP and the Borough. We will be trying to enhance shore bird habitat nesting down at Stone Harbor Point. One of the challenges is the Point is fairly low now, so during extreme high tides the nests get washed out. We propose to elevate three areas, about 7 acres each, about a ft. in elevation to create a nesting habitat. We will be using a method rather than using dredging from off shore, the concept is to move sand through” back passing”, really just bulldozing the sand from certain points where it is accumulating. This is less expensive and a smaller scale way to keep managing sand. If we are successful in getting the funding and being about to do this we are hoping to create a series of management plans to advise how you do this and do it well. This will be a national model on how to do this in sensitive habitat areas. Permitting costs will be included in the Grant , as will construction work. Education and outreach program and management strategies will be worked through with the Borough. We are seeking support from the Borough to join us in this project and ultimately the Borough would be the permitee.

Regular Meeting, January 21, 2014
we conducted 1,122 inspections for the year, up from 1,014 in 2012. Smoke detector inspections went down, permits were down.
OEM – Coordinator Ken Hawk urged our homeowners to register to be included on the emergency phone list and email list to keep in touch during weather emergencies. This program is known as Code Red and was used during the snow blizzard a few years back.
Councilmember Carusi reported that the water damage in the Police building has been treated. Discussion are beginning on the rehab of the dispatch area but is waiting for the Library space to free up. $500,000 available in start up funds. There will be someone in the dispatch lobby part time to assist residents. High priorities are improvements to the police building and the Accreditation of the Police Department. Interviews to select a police sergeant to replace Captain Shutta will occur on Monday, February 3, there are 5 applicants. We will be appointing Justin Glass as full time officer tonight, officer #17, in place of using 3 SLEO officers in the off-season. .
Police Chief Reynolds – December 2013 monthly report. 582 incidents logged, there were 11,537 miles patrolled, 76 motor vehicle stops, 17 moving violations issued, 1 parking violation, 6 suspicious motor vehicles were investigated, 1 motor vehicle accidents were handled, responded to 3 alarms, 3 fire calls, 5 medical calls, 1 ordinance violations, 3 adults arrested for the month of December. Detective Division charged a 36 year old Millville resident was arrested on June 6th for burglary, possession of drugs and on December 6th he was sentenced to 2 years probation. Detectives continue to investigate a number of cooper thefts , piping within residential crawl spaces. Accreditation, in 2014 we will begin to get the Stone Harbor Police department accredited. The Police Department was accredited in 2006, in large part due to the efforts of Councilmember and SHPD retired Sgt. Davies-Dunhour. It was a proud moment because at the time we were the first CMC police department and the 4th in the State to obtain accreditation. In 2009 it was decided by the PS Committee and Chief Toland to allow the accreditation to expire due to cost factors. In the Fall of 2012 I requested funds to begin accreditation but that was not approved. I requested this line item for 2014 and it is anticipated it will be approved. Also we had several police department employees with no loss of time due to illness or injury.

NATURAL RESOURCES
Councilmember Rich reported that the Beach Plums will be planted by the Middle Township Honor Society on St. Patrick’s day at 95th and 96th street beach. Grant reported that the dune grass that was supposed to be planted has been planted however we need more. Committee met with Matt Gowen, Ocean Coastal, Site 103, we need more specifics regarding our Bay Dredging Plan. We discussed that this should be a 10 year plan and the goal is to establish maintenance dredging for the future. Once we get it done there should be a plan just like the beach is handled to continue to maintain the back bay. This would allow the Borough to properly budget the expenses over a 5 year capital plan, once we have the first phase done. We have a Resolution for animal control on the agenda tonight and we are scheduling a meeting in February for the Bird Sanctuary Committee.
Planning Board We had a meeting on January 13th elected a Chairman, Vice Chairman, approved contract for Planning Board solicitor and discussed a professional planner nomination and appointment, Administrator will be asking the company for an updated proposal. Ordinance recommendation from Planning Board is on our agenda tonight. .

Three jitneys ran on New Year’s Eve and were well received, we hope to do similar projects in the future.

UTILITIES
UTILITIES COMMITTEE MEETING HELD 1/10/14 In attendance, The committee.

Well #6 repairs – still waiting for approval from DEP



Application for increase in water allocation – DEP has been requesting additional information and we should hear something within a month.
Water usage –we used 351,000 gal more in Dec, 2013 that 2012. Overall we were down 19,276 mg over 2013. There were a number of leaks that affected the Dec reading and quite possibly that was the cause. We will discuss this further at out next meeting to attempt to determine the cause.
Ordinance to be introduced – tonight on the agenda is an ordinance to increase several service fees such as street openings. When we passed an ordinance last year, these were overlooked, so we are correcting that tonight. Also it has been an issue that a contractor will call our Utility inspector to the site indicating he was ready to set the meter and when the inspector arrives the site is not ready and he has to make repeat calls. So, in the Ordinance tonight, if the site is not ready, each additional visit to connect and set the meter will incur a charge of $145.00. This is clearly stated on all forms completed by the contractors. We will also be extending the sprinkler system times from 6:00 am to 9:00 am on the designed day. No changes to zones or days allowed. This was decided after a meeting with the landscapers who indicate there is a problem watering at night and 6:00 am was difficult for them to monitor. This will also make it easier for our inspectors to monitor the systems.
Because the program now in use by our Utilities Collector is obsolete and does not provide the ability to prepare the type of report we need. It also does not interface with our Finance Department and we are looking into a new system that will be compatible with our Finance Department and also allow us to automate some remaining manual systems.
Sewer volume adjustments for 11 property owners were reviewed . All documents were in order and a resolution will be introduced later tonight crediting them for excess charges.
Go Green - with ¾ of the volunteer members in Florida we will be conducting our meetings via e-mail. We anticipate having another paper shredding day to be held in conjunction with the Garden Club Yard Sale, which will be held May 17th. Lisa at PW is working on estimates from the various companies who handle this project. We will keep you posted.
Library – Councilmember Rich, Mastrangelo and myself met with Deb Poullion, Ann Marie McMahon and Mike Laffey to discuss our concerns with the design of the library. It was an excellent meeting and I believe we all came away with a positive feeling that we will soon have a design appropriate to share with everyone.

PUBLIC WORKS Councilmember Kramar reported that fencing was installed on the second row of beach from 80th to 85th streets. General maintenance of beach and marina continues along with work on the 83rd street Fishing Pier. Streets are being patched, potholes repaired, and automotive inspections ongoing. Diesel fuel used for 2013 was 29,140 gallons and no lead gasoline for the year was 22,398. In buildings, a meter and conduit was installed in the Bird Sanctuary in preparation for the Fiber Optic

ADMINISTRATOR –Administrator Gougher reported she has been trying to get a proposal from a vendor to create and booklet as opposed to the mailing we do in March, with different stuffers. The preliminary figures appear we can actually create a professional looking booklet that can be mailed to all property owners and will actually be less money. Site 103 Matt has prepared a progress report to send to DOT on where we are, still waiting for the agreement of sale to be finalized and then executed by the BOA Association. Once the sale takes place the Borough can actually enter into the amended MOA with the DOT to prepare the specifications and go out to bid to remove the material. Matt will be speaking with a potential receiver of the material, which could save us some money.

Some questions were asked by Councilmember Mastrangelo. Mrs. Lane said this is the Ordinance discussed in my report it will change certain fees that were omitted in the overall increase to service fees and it also establishes the time correction that I had discussed. Barry had a question…not quite covered in the report…He was confused about the cost under 1/1/2014 and increase for 2014. Mrs. Lane said we did both at one time. We did 2013 and 2014 at one time when we passed the original ordinance. Barry..but there is two 2014’s on here. We had May 2013 in the first column then we have what will take effect 1/1/2014 and don’t know what that is. Mrs. Lane I don’t know, I didn’t do this. The use of “cost” and “increase” confused everyone. Mrs. Lane didn’t know why it is written like that, I didn’t prepare it. But when we did the original this wasn’t up, I basically checked the ones we were changing. We corrected these fees back in 2013 and we increased it 15% . Barry, but this is another 10% in the outside column and that is what he is confused about. Not sure what we are voting on. Judy, are we voting on the additional increase for 2014? What we voted on in Ordinance 1422 was the first and second column. The numbers under Increase for 2014 are confusing and they are in the Ordinance. Grant, it was 15% in 2013 and 15% in 2014 but the State mandates we get rid of all of our lead. Mrs. Lane, so we are increasing an additional 10% on these lines as well. Barry, so then the 1/1/2014 that just went into effect is stricken out because it is being changed? Mrs. Lane yes. Barry, We want to be sure we only advertise this once, so we don’t have to pay to advertise twice. Mrs. Lane, I agree, we are going to increase it because of what Grant said, the cost of our materials has now gone up. Barry, so even though we anticipated a increase for

Regular Meeting, January 21, 2014
January 1st which Ordinance 1422 did anticipate…we are now going up again, weeks after this went into effect, basically. Mrs. Lane, that is correct. Barry, just so everyone knows what we are voting on. Mrs. Lane..we went up 25% because the cost of materials went up.
Mrs. Lane, we did agree to increase by the COLA rate every year so that we stay current. Barry, can’t we incorporate that into this ordinance and then do the increase by Resolution like we do other fees? Mrs. Lane, if his costs go up more than COLA then we will have to come back with an Ordinance. Mrs. Lane…increase by the COLA each year and add that line to it. All fees will be increased annually by the COLA rate. Can we do that? No legal advice here. Barry..would it be worth holding this for the next meeting, get that clarified and do it all at once so we don’t advertise this twice. Jill..I feel more comfortable with Mike crafting the proper language.

DISCUSSION
Planning Board Breakaway Walls Ordinance – Rich explained this ordinance defines breakaway walls and it doesn’t have to be adopted tonight but is here in case there are questions. Mast said this is because of the V Zones which affect about 37homes in the Borough, but we are going to be working to get them out of the V Zone. Planning Board worked on this before they knew the Borough was doing that. Since we don’t know how long it will take to get the map amendments to get the out of the V Zone. Gougher said we can’t ask for an amendment until it is adopted. We have to get that answer first. Maybe there is something we can do ahead of time so that they are not even in the V Zone? That should be decided first, before we look at this Ordinance.

Kiosk 80th Street Councilmember Kramar proposed an 80th Street Kiosk with a possible Ordinance change. Public Works has been working diligently on a proposal for placing a Kiosk at 80th Street and the promenade at 80th Street for over 2 years to generate additional revenue for our town. Over the past three years there have been several requests from the public to do so. In 2013 the PW Committee put it in the Capital Budget 2 Kiosk for that purpose. You have a printout of the designated parking spots that are available along the First Avenue promenade between 80th & 83rd

Streets. With the suggestion and research of our PW Director Grant Russ the feeling is we should include the west side of the first curb parallel parking along the playground and tennis courts which will give 14 more spaces and will conform with the entire area. Mrs. Kramar also gave out a printout breakdown of some other areas where meters are near residential areas and how many spaces this would add. We were asked to think about revenue and this would be a use revenue. We have to consider time for the Kiosk and there have been several suggestions. We need to hear from Council.

Davies-Dunhour said she feels we are just adding another user fee, most are going to the beach and this will be just another metered spot, hate to ask people to continue to pay to come here.


Kramar not trying to put it on any particular entity but if we set it from 5 pm to 5 am that would give the beach people time. We have all these meters in every other place and we are always looking for revenue. And that is a huge revenue area.

Regular Meeting, January 21, 2014


Davies-Dunhour, the area is already generating money, recreation programs, beach fees. It would be just another reason for people to go elsewhere. If we are looking for revenue we should look at other areas rather than meters. Meters are put in for turnover, we have no businesses at 80th Street that we have to worry about turnover for. Mastrangelo asked about the lot at 122nd street and Kramar said maybe in the future. Carusi, would like to reduce the number of meters, has heard many complaints. Mrs. Lane said we are discriminating by not charging because we have meters at the 97th Street recreation area. Kramar said she would like to see meters removed from in front of Fred’s on 96th Street Ultimate wish to remove all meters, never going to happen. Davies-Dunhour said again, meters are for turnover not for revenue.
