C/Gallagher states nothing at this time.

 

C/Soden states to date the court has received $95,259.36.  The police activity report from 5/10 – 5/22, there were 253 calls.  I also have a letter from Manalapan Twp. that every member of council has received.  I would like to read part of the letter into the record.  The letter is from the Chief of Manalapan and states, “On behalf of myself and my department, I would like to extend my deepest thanks and appreciation for your assistance rendered by Sergeant Settele of your department”.  There was a robbery in Manalapan and through the efforts of Sergeant Settele going through our computer; they were able to find the people responsible for the robbery.

 

C/D’Agostino states we will be putting out the Consumer Confidence Report very shortly.  Also I am pleased to see on the agenda tonight, the purchase of a vehicle for the water department.  I feel it has been long overdue.

 

C/Simon states nothing at this time.

 

Correspondence

 

Julie Martin, Municipal Clerk states no correspondence, but I did receive a call from Marpal, our Garbage Disposal Contract regarding a pick up in English Club, that one of the dumpsters contained a large amount of concrete and construction material and the collectors were instructed not to pick it up.  As you know we are billed by the ton.  I contacted Mr. Joe Palmieri and the DPW Supervisor and myself went to take a look at the dumpster.  Approximately 1/3 of the dumpster was full of concrete and sheetrock.  Marpal said they will pick it up, however they just want to know if the town is going to pick up this cost or should I bill it to the Homeowners Association of English Club.  As of yet, I have no idea of what the cost will be.

 

Mayor Reynolds asks was this a homeowner that put these materials in the dumpster?

 

Julie Martin responds I don’t know.

 

Joe Palmieri, Secretary of the Homeowner’s Association of English Club states these things occur in the middle of the night.  I feel that the concrete didn’t come from us, however I can’t be sure it wasn’t a resident.

 

Mayor Reynolds asks John Bennett, Borough Attorney, if there would be any legal issues. Are we obligated to pick up this garbage, even though materials as these should not be in the dumpsters?

 

John Bennett replies, no we are not obligated to pick up this dumpster.  We can notify the Association that there is materials in the dumpster that are not eligible to be picked up and if residents are going to be filling up these dumpsters with such materials, the Association is going to pay for the cost.

 

John Bennett asks, if this were an individual homeowner would materials as such be picked up?

 

The unanimous reply was no.

 

John Bennett states the same standard has to be applied to the Association as it would a homeowner.

 

Julie Martin states she will give Joe Palmieri the name and number of the contact person at Marpal so he can call him direct to remedy the situation.

 

Secondly, there is a new law, The Domestic Partnership Act, coming into effect on July 10, 2004.  I have given council correspondence regarding this new law.  It is up to each individual town whether they wish to adopt resolutions agreeing to health benefits for same sex partners or heterosexuals over the age of 62 and one which would offer them beneficiary pension benefits.  This is up to the town and is not mandatory, but if it is agreed upon, resolutions need to be adopted.

 

Open Public Portion

 

The Mayor opened the floor to the public for discussion limited to agenda items only.

 

Jayne Carr asks regarding Ordinance 2004-05, which sections in the codebook are being changed?

 

John Bennett responds, the changes are as follows; in a C-1 zone, any apartment located within a building should be restricted to the upper floors of the building and the total area of such apartments shall be less than equal to 50% of the buildings gross floor area.  In a Residential Low Density zone, professional office buildings may contain one or more apartments, provided they are restricted to the upper floors of the building and containing a minimum of 800 square feet.  Also, two off street parking spaces must be provided for each apartment.

 

There being no further questions or comments from the public, a motion to close the public portion was offered by C/Soden, seconded by C/Simon.  Passed unanimously.

Public Portion

 

Mayor Reynolds opened the floor to the public for anything they wish to bring to the attention of the governing body.

 

Lynn Strong, Main Street states that the plans for the Memorial Day Parade are coming along.  This year I asked Fred Kravitz, who is the commander of the Legion Post to be the Grand Marshall, and he will be marching.  Anyone marching should meet at the Manalapan Complex at 1:30.  The parade will be starting at 2:00 p.m.

 

Jayne Carr, Main Street states, Ray French’s property next door to Borough Hall has very high grass.  The Memorial Day Parade is soon and the property should not be looking that way.

 

Julie Martin comments that she has contacted the realtor, and he has promised me that the grass will be cut by tomorrow.  If it is not cut by tomorrow, our DPW will cut the grass and Mr. French will be billed.

 

Jayne Carr continues that on 522 there is a utility wire hanging very low.

 

Julie Martin replies we will take a look at the wire to determine whom we have to call.

 

Jayne Carr continues that the grass and weeds in Sanford Park look as if they have not had any attention in quite some time.

 

Rudy Rucker responds stating that the DPW has one gentleman out on medical leave and another is on vacation.  I will address this.

 

Joe Palmieri, Queens Way states, I came in contact with a gentleman who installs solar panels. I want to know if council would be interested in him coming to give you a short presentation regarding possibly converting the Municipal Building to solar energy

 

Mayor Reynolds responds, have him contact Julie Martin to get some information and then we will see what we can set up.

 

There being no further questions or comments from the public, a motion to close the public portion was offered by C/Soden, seconded by C/Simon.  Passed unanimously.

 

Executive Session

 

There is no executive session this evening.

 

Adjournment

 

There being no further business a motion to adjourn was offered by C/Soden, seconded by C/Simon. Passed unanimously.

 

The time being 8:55P.M.
