Cavagnaro and Dispoto – supposed to be a jazz festival – asked where the jazz was going to be, all over town – it becomes similar to the seafood festival – just out there selling stuff – quality of life in town is going downhill; Mike Ramos, PPB: there is some kind of beer or wine garden at every jazz festival – supported Frankie's request.

Vince Castin, PPB: complained that no member of the Governing Body was present at Memorial Day celebration on May 29th at Veterans Memorial, nor did they participate in the bicycle parade that day.
Max Gagnon, PPB: commented on Ordinance 2010-29 – has spoken about Council taking back authority to overrule Zoning Board – no one seems interested in what is going on at the Boardwalk.
Ben Dispoto, PPB: asked about Ordinance 2010-35 and Shade Tree Ordinance.

Kas Dyson, PPB: spoke about VFW Memorial Day ceremony – Council should have been personally invited; will vote against any issue/candidate Mr. Bilotti supports – his flyers are filled with distorted information – these gentlemen don’t even live in town.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PERIOD (Non-Agenda and First Reading Ordinances)
ENDED AT 9:07 P.M.

Motion by Councilman Cervino, to bring Ordinance 2010-12 veto off the table, was seconded by Councilman Rizzo and adopted by the following roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Hennessy, Rizzo, Cervino, Lurie, Dyer….YEA
Councilwoman Tooker: NAY
Maryjane Reilly, PPB: paid up to 12% motel tax all over on her last vacation - facing budget problems - asked that those who voted in favor reconsider.
John Szafranski, PPB: suggested town contact state about rescinding part of their portion of hotel/motel tax – giving it back there and taking it from taxpayers on 2010-23 (Mayor explained how cap bank works).
Aleta Weinstein , PPB: questioned business acumen of Councilman Cervino and other council members – unconscionable that you don’t want a hotel/motel tax in our town, which needs revenue – have to run town like a business – as shareholder of the town, her share is going down - big business gets their money (from tourism) – residents get garbage, misery, drunks – very disproportionate here – urge you to start thinking about the residents – Boardwalk business are supporting foreign labor, not locals.
Mike Ramos, PPB: emailed proposal to Governing Body members – 23 years in hotel business – getting rid of half of this tax is fiscally irresponsible and reprehensible – motel tax has zero impact on business levels at hotels – been in effect in New Jersey for about 10 years, but for decades throughout Europe – willing to work with Council and Chamber of Commerce – asked how that tax revenue would be replaced.
Max Gagnon, PPB: asked who Council is giving this money away to – not to the people in town – in favor of giving the people tax breaks but should be looking for income – suggested taxing businesses on the sand.
Tom Highton, PPB: Council candidates who visited his house were in favor of the hotel/motel tax – when the public says no, it means no – sham taxpayers association represents the Boardwalk and certain interests in town – you guys are being endorsed because you're voting for this – will work against people that this taxpayers group endorses – cannot, at this time, vote to lower this tax – asked when we tell tourists and big business that enough is enough – stand up against this taxpayers’ association and their scurrilous literature.
Joe Lemma, PPB: best way to cure this Council is to get rid of them – they're not for the people – they're for business – Mr. Cervino spoke about the little people – the people on social security are the little people, not the motel owners.
Stan Angeloni, PPB: asked those Council members supporting the lowering of this tax where their supporters are – disappointed with Council Member Cervino and Hennessy – cannot believe the decisions they’re making to hurt the people of this town, especially those who are retired.
Bill Knapp, PPB: if that $125,000 were given to fund police specials, could be talking about $500,000 difference in budget – would make town safer and those specials would generate more revenue – complemented Councilman Hennessy for changing his votes on police chief and school budget – asked him to listen to the people now.
Dan DePolo, PPB: in 2008, police department had budget of $405,000 for special officers – cut to $265,000 this year – police are fielding skeleton crews and revenue numbers are down – officers are having to pick and choose, to bypass violations to maintain control – bad precedent to set – have worked hard over the years to maintain town, but could lose control this summer – asked that the hotel/motel tax, in question, be given to the police department – if court revenue is down, will be in a bigger hole next year – safety and quality of life being affected this year – next year, the financial impact will be tremendous.
Mike Schaller, PPB: can't accept that property taxes will go up, but will be giving money back to tourists – hotel/motel owners in town have said it doesn't make much difference to their business – philosophical aspects of this tax can be debated, but what cannot be debated is that this is not the time to do this.
Marilyn Burke, PPB: anyone with a finance, economic or business background would never rescind taxes – no reason for it – amount of money tourists would save is negligible – we want people who are going to spend money and add class to our town haven’t heard anyone speak in favor of rescinding tax.
Lucille Buonocore: need tourist tax on liquor – Wildwood has a tax on liquor, lodging and parking – becoming a town full of drunks – police aren't stopping fights because they work for the Boardwalk at night – not getting tax from beach, but are patrolling it at night and citizens are paying for it.
Dave Cavagnaro, PPB: raising my property tax and water, cutting police, effecting security in my neighborhood and income of the town, but giving $125,000 away to tourists – not logical – please listen, please represent – don't override this veto.
Vince Castin, PPB: pays tax when he travels – spoke against rescinding tax – asked Council to show courage by not overriding.
Albert Varosi, PPB: when hotel is $40/week in winter, police are always there – if prostitutes and drug dealers can't afford to pay the tax, so be it.
Motion by Councilman Cervino, to close public participation, was adopted by the following roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Tooker, Hennessy, Rizzo, Cervino, Lurie, Dyer….YEA
Mayor Barrella: vetoed because repealing this tax made no sense – Point Pleasant Beach needs other sources of revenue and business owners need to get behind this and get it done, otherwise will be scrambling and scrounging and each year will get progressively worse – read ‘tame’ email from Mr. Billoti to give town an insight into person Council is about to take care of: “any decent, honest, fair-minded, human being would help the people who got him elected, even a miniscule 1%. We cannot believe the audacity of you helping the cops and teachers, who did absolutely nothing to help you. You are making a serious error just like all the rest of them. We will tell the voters in Point Pleasant Beach what you are doing and let them decide the fate of your party.” – saying no to Mr. Bilotti has been a very expensive proposition for me – spoke about the recall petition – asked people to stand up to Mr. Bilotti now or this town is doomed – if Council, after hearing everything here tonight, does not keep this tax, have to believe the order to do this is coming from someone much more powerful than Mr. Bilotti.
Motion by Councilman Cervino, to override the veto on Ordinance 2010-12(Reduce Hotel/Motel Tax to 1.5%,) was seconded by Councilman Rizzo and carried by the following roll call vote.

Ordinance 2010-25 (Resident Parking Permit) was considered on second reading. Mayor Barrella opened the hearing to the public.
Dave Cavagnaro, PPB: asked Council to reject based on recommendations from Police Chief and Administrator – unenforceable, abused by public and costs town money – not time, in this economy, to bring this program back – makes non-resident, property owners pariahs and makes them pay for program they are not allowed to participate in.
Motion by Councilman Cervino to close the public hearing and adopt Ordinance 2010-25 was seconded by Councilman Dyer and carried by the following roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Hennessy, Rizzo, Cervino, Lurie, Dyer*….YEA

Ordinance 2010-26 (Water/Sewer Utility Rates) was considered on second reading. Mayor Barrella opened the hearing to the public.
Dave Cavagnaro, PPB: unfair to 2nd home owners and about 40% of the other residents, who either live alone or conserve water – if you put the money back in budget and raise everyone’s taxes, it’s a much fairer system – if you increase the rate structure, rather than the connect fee, that’s also fair because the biggest users are the people whose business depends on the water – they force this town to maintain a much larger system for their benefit, can take it (water costs) off on their taxes and can pass it along to their customers – residents can’t do that – asked Council not to do this to the residents as it is abusive and regressive – all the other utilities charge based on usage.
