Committee Reports

 

Public Utilities

Councilwoman Krawiec reports: 

·        There were 118 delinquent water accounts for the 2nd Quarter. 

·        Emergency purchase of a new PH meter for the Water Plant needed.  Signed Requisition # RO-00279 in the amount of $325.00 which will be added to tonight’s requisition list.

·        Hydrant flushing will take place at the end of October. 

·        Thanks Peter, Municipal Clerk and Christine, Deputy Municipal Clerk for getting the minutes completed.  Minutes will now be approved at the following council meeting.  For the future, would like to ask Council to hand in a copy of their Committee Report to facilitate in the minute writing. 

 

Code Enforcement, Public Health, Welfare & Public Events       

Councilwoman Cooke reports: 

·        Many thanks to those who participated in our Patriots Day Memorial Service on September 11th.

 

Administration, Finance & Personnel    

Councilman Wojyn reports:

·        So far nine companies responded and requested Bid Specs for the Solar Panel RFP.  Four attended the Site Visit Meeting on September 15th.  All Bids are due on October 21st

C/Krawiec asks why are we asking for Bids when the Borough is not supposed to incur any charge for this? 

 

Attorney Youssouf states it is structured as an RFP with no out of pocket expenses to the Borough because it is to be erected on Borough property and there will be a financial relationship between the provider and the Borough so we felt an RFP was the right way to do this.  The Borough will be making a decision on the vendor based on the rate of return, installation quality etc. all to be evaluated by the Borough Engineer.

 

·        Ed Horsfall, our IT specialist, said the power supply to our server is failing.  Today, we did not have access to the Internet or our financial network to do daily work.  The age of the server makes it difficult to obtain a power supply.  Cost is about $180.00 plus the labor to install it.  By purchasing the power supply, it will give us an additional year or two.   We should plan for the purchase of a new server for the 2011 budget year, which will cost between $2,500 - $5,000. 

C/Carr requests to make an appointment with B/A Finger to review the computer expenditures from the last five to ten years.

 

Public Safety

Councilwoman Robilotti reports: 

·        Police Report consisted of the following:  184 Dispatched Incidents, 82 Incident Reports, 26 Arrest Reports, 18 Complaints Issued, 8 Accident Reports, 334 Motor Vehicle Stops, 281 Summons Issued.  

·        Attended the NJ Conference of Mayors last Friday.  There was much detail on the “TOOL KIT” presented by Governor Christie, and Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadano It was informative and I support it. 

·        Mayor and I attended the Manalapan/Englishtown Drug Alliance meeting last night, which was very informative.  We will be setting up a direct communication with disclosures to communicate better.

·        Attended Brandywine’s Las Vegas night to represent the Borough. 

 

Legislative, Insurance & Licenses

Councilwoman Carr reports: 

·        Has a concern with the floor drain in the Water Dept. Building, which was found during a JIF audit.  Requests the Clerk look into this since C/Rucker is absent tonight. 

 

Public Buildings & Grounds

Councilman Rucker was absent, nothing is reported.

 

Correspondence

Peter Gorbatuk, Municipal Clerk states:

·        Flu and Pneumonia Clinic will be held on November 9th from 2 to 3 PM. 

·        “Operation Take Back” will be held on Saturday, September 25th from 10 to 2 in the Police Station; safe disposal of your unwanted, unused or expired medicine.

 

Borough Administrator/CFO Report

Laurie Finger states:

·        COAH trust fund money will be moved to Brunswick Bank. 

·        Peter and I attended Brunswick Bank’s Grand Opening to introduce ourselves. 

·        In the process of receiving the Direct Install Audit.  A preliminary report of the Municipal Building was assessed for Heating, A/C and Lighting at a cost of $65,000.   DPW Garage at a cost of $22,000 for a total of $85,000; the grant is for $50,000.  As per the State, we do not have to do the entire assessment at once; we can do it in pieces.  Additional grant money will be available in a second round and we can complete the assessment then.  There will be no cost to the taxpayers.

·        Best practice checklist needs to be submitted by October 1st. We have come up with 68 yes answers out of a possible 88 questions, which makes us eligible for 99% of our December State Aid payment.

·        Received a memo from our tax assessor concerning Verizon Business Personal Property.  Legislation was passed many years ago stating that if a utility company does not provide 51% of coverage in a town, than they are exempt from paying their personal property tax; this is not the property tax on their building, this is the tax on the overhead wires and connections in the town, which for the Borough is assessed at 4.4 million dollars.  The Borough is below the 51% and will be losing tax revenue in 2011.  Hopewell Township just went to tax court regarding this and lost. 

 

Mayor Reynolds states he received a call from Senator Beck’s office stating that DCA is looking to get out of the Construction Official Business.  On Monday he attended a meeting in Trenton at DCA to discuss this and Manalapan’s Mayor Andrew Lucas, Senator Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon, DCA Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner were also present.  Shared Services were discussed as an alternative; stated that he has no objection to shared service however all meetings regarding this will be in the full view of the public.  The Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner of DCA had no time frame as to when construction services would no longer be available to the Borough.  DCA would like to meet with our governing body to discuss shared services.  Council consensus favorable to discuss shared services during a public meeting with DCA or Manalapan Township.
