Committee Reports

 

Public Utilities

Councilwoman Krawiec reports:

·        NJ DEP performed regulatory testing in our water system and sanitary sewer.  There were no findings. 

·        Elon update – getting ready to install pipes and get ready for service.  This will improve the flow of water from Lasatta Avenue and that end of town.

·        Resident complaint regarding mold underneath the W. Dey Street water tower.  Per Jim Mastrokalos, Water Superintendent this will cost approximately $1,000.00 to clean and he doesn’t recommend it at this time due to our budget constraints.  It does not affect the quality of the water since it is on the outside of the tank. The mold is due to the shade the tower receives on the north side.

·        Water quality reports were completed.  They should be in the mail by July 1st.

·        Previously received bids for sidewalk repairs due to water main breaks.  The lowest bidder was unresponsive so on tonight’s agenda is another resolution to award the contract to the second lowest bidder.

 

Code Enforcement, Public Health, Welfare & Public Events

Councilwoman Cooke is absent nothing is reported.

 

Administration, Finance & Personnel

Councilman Wojyn reports:

·        Administrator has been working diligently assisting the Police Department with the transition and cross training them on the various administrative duties that they are responsible for now that the Chief has retired.

·        Borough computers are not working up to par.  I will be conducting an inventory of the machines to find the reasons.

·        Clerk’s office has been busy receiving quotes for the tree removal project in Sanford Park, processing liquor license renewals, and working on issue with Hospitality Way resident regarding water drainage issue.  This is now in the hands of Code Enforcement and the Borough Engineer.

 

Public Safety

Councilwoman Robilotti reports:

·        Police Activity Report is not available this evening.  The person who did the report did not educate the others in the department how the report was created.   The department is in the process of figuring it out. 

·        Asked Court Administrator for the ticket total and dollar amount the special officers have brought into the Borough since hired.  The tickets issued have been mainly for people coming through town on the weekends to attend an event at Raceway Park or the auction.  To date Ptl. Zapora wrote a total of 215 tickets totaling $22,610.00 and Ptl. Accatatta wrote a total of 190 tickets totaling $16,814.00. 

·        Applied for a grant for “Over the Limit, Under Arrest”.  This is a $4,400.00 grant, which will cover the overtime incurred to set up DWI checkpoints.

·        On June 4th, attended a meeting in Trenton with Brent Shuntler, Head of Education along with Mayors from Manalapan and Howell to discuss our concerns with the school budgets.  If the Board of Education appeals our decision, it would be before him and we wanted him to hear our concerns and reasons prior.

·        On June 12th, attended State Trooper Castallano’s funeral.  Extends her sincere condolence to the family.

·        Attended the Police Expo in Atlantic City.  Was very educational.  Trying to bring our police department up to the 21st century in regards to weapons and other necessities.  Spoke to many vendors. 

 

Legislative, Insurance & Licenses

Councilwoman Carr reports:

·        Along with the Borough Engineer and Nick Campanella, looking into other possible locations for the solar panels.  One location is a privately owned property.  Mr. Campanella is in the process of contacting them.

·        Met with the marketing director for the new bank in town.  He is interested in a basic introduction to the municipality and the borough businesses of which I offered my help.  Will be setting up a meeting with him and Laurie Finger.  They will be opening within the first two weeks of July.

 

Public Buildings & Grounds

Councilman Rucker reports:

·        DPW report given out to council; any questions?  None voiced.

·        In dire need of replacing the water plant roof and the flat portion of the municipal building.

 

Mayor Reynolds states, Borough Engineer Tom Herits was asked to be here this evening to address questions regarding the traffic study that was done by Maser Consulting for the proposed Wood Avenue Apartment project in Manalapan.

 

Mayor Reynolds states his concern is that Maser Consulting is our engineer and they did a study for a development in Manalapan that will definitely have consequences on Englishtown.

 

Tom Herits, Borough Engineer states he wasn’t aware that Maser Consulting was even doing the report until the Borough notified him of this.

 

C/Carr addresses the Borough Engineer with her questions and concerns with the inconsistencies she has found in the report.  C/Carr states, Maser Consulting has made the recommendation for the project to move forward, stating that overall the traffic from the Wood Avenue Apartments would not degrade the existing traffic levels on Wood Avenue or adjacent intersections and as a result supports the proposed residential development.

 

Tom Herits asks if Manalapan allowed a cross examination of their traffic report findings.  

 

C/Carr said there was no opportunity to question anyone.  Per the report this is an already failing intersection.   She states she has serious concerns with this.  Would like the County addressed since it is a County Road and putting the Wood Avenue project aside, the report is already showing Main St./Water St. intersection as “failing”.  What is being done today to fix this “failing” intersection?

 

Tom Herits asked if the project has received County approval yet? The answer is no.  It seems that Manalapan has bypassed normal procedure.

 

Mayor Reynolds asks Tom Herits to find out the status of this project on the County level.

Is this sight contaminated?  Monmouth Petroleum was the prior occupant on this site.  What were the County’s findings?

 

Mayor Reynolds thanks Tom Herits for attending tonight’s meeting.

 

Correspondence

Peter Gorbatuk, Municipal Clerk states:

·        June 24th the Elm Group will be performing the well sampling

·        Project Expeditors is awaiting their answer on their petition for a liquor license transfer from the State, so therefore they are not included on the resolution on tonight’s agenda authorizing 2010-2011 liquor license renewals.

 

Borough Administrator/CFO Report

Laurie Finger is absent nothing is reported.

RESOUTION IN OPPOSITION TO SENATE BILL S-458

 

WHEREAS, Senate Bill 458 calls for a referendum to consolidate the municipal tax assessor, municipal tax collector, municipal health services and municipal animal control services at the county, and;

 

WHEREAS, Senate bill 458 does not give the municipality any option if the county voters cast a majority to consolidate, and;

WHEREAS, Senate Bill 458 calls for a master plan for the consolidation of the tax assessment and tax collection functions after enactment of the proposal without giving the public the opportunity to review and comment on the proposed master plan, and;

 

WHEREAS, current state statutes place responsibility for tax assessment and tax collection under municipal jurisdiction, and;

 

WHEREAS, it is the municipalities responsibility to collect all property taxes due and distribute same to the other taxing authorities, as well as enforcing laws on delinquents, and;

 

WHEREAS, current statute provide for the reserve for uncollected taxes to be included in the municipal budget;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the governing body of the Borough of Englishtown does hereby oppose the passage and enactment of Senate Bill 458.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that a certified copy of this resolution be sent to Governor Chris Christie, Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, the Tax Collectors and Treasurers Association of New Jersey (TCTANJ), and Senator Jennifer Beck representing this district as a sign of our opposition to this proposal.
