                           Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Week – Feb. 22 – Mar. 1, 2006

 

Mayor Reynolds reads the above proclamations.

 

Committee Reports

 

C/Rucker states I would like to commend the DPW for the terrific job they did with the snowstorm on the 11th and 12th

 

Mayor Reynolds also commended their work.

 

C/Robilotti states we had our first Recreation Committee meeting and we added a new event to our calendar.  We are going to do a Trash to Treasure Sale on April 29th in Sanford Park.  In 2007 we are also going to try to incorporate a car show.

 

C/Soden states nothing at this time.

 

C/Carr states I was happy Randy came out tonight.  The Economic Development Committee met two Saturdays ago.  We are meeting twice a month until we get things up and moving.  I contacted the County regarding the inmate labor program.  I completed the municipal land use grant, which we are putting in for a planning grant for $40,000.00.  Laurie Finger, Borough Administrator has reviewed that for me and has given me some feedback.  I asked about the Rental Property Registration and how many have been inspected.  The response I received was they were not starting inspections until all the registrations came in.  In my personal opinion, they might not all come in.  We are charging people for a service, which so far we have not provided to anybody.  We are paying someone to sit and take the money in and then when they all do come in, you’re are going to have them all to do at the same time.  I would like to push forward that the inspections start getting done now that we have some of the registrations.

 

C/Simon states the police activity report from 1/22 – 2-19; there were 159 motor vehicle stops and 618 calls.  Also, unfortunately we received the resignation from Officer Elmer and his last day will be 2/28/06.

 

Correspondence

 

Julie Martin, Municipal Clerk reads into record correspondence received from the Monmouth County Mosquito Extermination Commission regarding aerial surveillance and treatment programs.  Julie Martin states, I need consensus from council and Mayor Reynolds signature for permission for the aerial spraying. 

 

C/Carr asks what exactly are they spraying?

 

Julie Martin responds I can find that out.  I do know that it is all DEP regulated.

 

Mayor Reynolds requests Julie Martin to find out what is being sprayed and consensus will be taken at the next Council Meeting on March 8, 2006.

 

Public Portion – Agenda Items

 

Mayor Reynolds opens the floor to the public for discussion limited to agenda items only.

 

Janet Leonardis inquires about Resolution No. 2006-055.

 

Mayor Reynolds states that is the new tax system in Monmouth County.  There is no initial fee and the cost thereafter is $500.00 for the year.

 

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

RESOLUTION OF THE BOROUGH OF ENGLISHTOWN

AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO EXECUTE AN AMENDED STATE

OF NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION SANITARY WATER APPROVAL APPLICATION

ELON ASSOCIATES, LLC

BLOCK 26, LOTS 1 & 7 – PHASE I

LASATTA AVENUE, BOROUGH OF ENGLISHTOWN

 

            WHEREAS, it is necessary for Elon Associates to file an amended application to the NJDEP for sanitary Water approval for service to Phase I of the proposed development, consisting of 101 units; and

 

            WHEREAS, the associated paperwork has been reviewed and approved by the Borough Engineer, Thomas J. Herits, PE, PP, PLS.

 

            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Englishtown that the Mayor is hereby authorized to execute the aforesaid amended application, regarding Phase I of the proposed development, consisting of 101 units.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a certified copy of this Resolution shall be forwarded to the following:  Elon Associates, LLC (Attn.: Allen Weiss, Esq.), Borough Engineer, Borough Water Superintendent, and Borough Attorney.

 

////// TABLED \\\\\\

 

Stuart J. Moskovitz, Borough Attorney states I received a phone call today from Betsy McKenzie, who is the referee appointed in this whole ELON matter.  She indicated that the applicant, if they were gong to file a DEP application, would like the application to include the entire 134 units rather than 101.  Before we pass the resolution for 101 units, which you can do, you might want to consider their request first.  I just wanted to alert you to it before you voted on the Resolution.

 

C/Soden states I have a problem with this.  When we went through the Court Master, we were told that ELON’s attorney was going to make an effort to pursue a water diversion right from Trenton.  I have yet to see any paperwork on it and I don’t even know if they went about doing so.

 

Mayor Reynolds states that was done months ago.  I received a letter from the State Department that they would not give us any additional water rights.

 

C/Soden states, I can send a letter and say I’m making an effort.  My point is if I send a letter to them, does that say I’m making an effort.  The attorney said he could get us the water from Trenton, then they changed the terms and now we’re not getting anything from them.  It doesn’t seem right to me.  Now they come in here and ask for all of them.  I have a problem with this.

 

C/Simon asks if they want to amend it from 101 units to 134 units don’t they have to go before the Planning Board to make a new plan?

 

Tom Herits states their applications to the Board were for 134 units.  The Borough already did a Resolution for them to apply for water for the 134 units.  The 101 came about because that was the number of units we had water available for.  However they still have approval for 134.

 

Mayor Reynolds stated wasn’t it a condition of the 134 that they (we) would look into an interlocal agreement with Gordons Corner to provide additional water.

 

C/Soden states I don’t have a problem doing that, what I have a problem with is if you say you’re going to make an attempt do more than send a letter.  C/Rucker and myself sat here in 1989 when they arbitrarily cut our diversion rights by 50%.  Now we need help because of the 134 units coming in.  It just doesn’t seem right to me.  Somebody has got to help.  I don’t know how much the Court Master got into this.

 

Discussion regarding Resolution 2006-051 continues between Mayor, Council, Borough Attorney Stuart J. Moskovitz, Borough Engineer Thomas Herits, ELON attorney Alan Weitz and ELON developer Seth Yaroni.

 

Stuart J. Moskovitz states all I need you to do is stipulate that there is going to be no claim that we are stalling on this, and that it’s an agreement that we are going to hold off until the litigation is done.  How about if we simply agree tonight that both sides are in favor of putting this resolution off until the next meeting, until such time you can find out whatever you need to find out to determine where we go next.

 

ELON attorney Allan Weitz agrees.

 

Mayor Reynolds requests a motion to table Resolution No. 2006-051 until the next Council Meeting on March 8, 2006.  Motion to table made by C/Soden and seconded by C/Rucker.  Passed unanimously.

 

Public Portion

 

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

 

Janet Leonardis, Weamaconk Drive states I just wanted to share something with you.  This is from Florence Township Council Executive Session on May 14, 2003. 

Janet Leonardis reads excerpts from document into record regarding Randy Gottesman, grant writer and how he did not do well for Florence Township. 

Janet Leonardis states I would just like Council to look further into Florence Townships experience and see if in fact pursuing something like this would be beneficial considering our tax dollars are very tight.

 

C/Carr states if we are intelligent we will sign a contract where he works until we make an even break of what we’ve paid him.

 

Joyce Stipple, Irving Place states regarding past planning board meetings, we were told that ELON was selling.  Why are we here?  Do they have to give the water rights to people they are selling to?

 

Mayor Reynolds states that is something we are trying to ascertain.  We don’t know if it was going to be rentals, or sold as condo units for purchase.  That was hear say and no one ever stipulated that.

 

Joyce Stipple states they notified the planning board attorney.  That’s still hear say?

 

Stuart Moskovitz, Borough Attorney states even if they are selling the whole project, they are never going to be able to sell the whole project without the water straightened out.
