P.P.B.S.T.C. Agenda

7:00 pm
Pt. Pleasant Beach Town Hall

1.Approve December minutes.
Green Community Grant Opportunity: Sharon to update. Note: As per PPBSTC approval, Sharon applied for a Hazard Tree Inventory. Sharon has OPRA’d for the county tree inventory , to prevent us from paying to inventory streets that have already been inventoried. The next step is to get learn how the county got the inventory , then get an estimate for this cost, and then to have council approval/resolution to match the grant, as required by the grant guidelines. Council must pledge matching the grant.
Public outreach...Kitty to update. County sponsored Arbor day event at Antrium school. Should we try and mandate a class on tree care in the HS- even a 1 hour class? Also, interpretation signs needed at all of the trees we’ve planted.
Paypal update:$781.80 . Pete Renner to transfer funds out of Paypal.
Possible dontaion of Crabapple tree at HSchool, corner of trenton & bay. Elaine spoke with davies in memory of roland davies, - would the PPBSTC donate a paver?
New Ordinance update: Passed! Huge thank you to Pete & Anne !
Commission status: PPBSTC is on track for 2011 to keep Commission status.
Budget update: Kitty to update. Presentation to council? Earmark trees for replacement. $3,000 matching grant from council, $1,000 expenses
9.Tree City USA: We will apply for this status, as we meet most of the eligibility requirements, including a per capita expense for trees (about $10,000, based upon a population of 5200), by adding all monies our town spends on trees (public workers hours, volunteer time etc), Sharon has this information. The per capita expense is within our FMP, so the info is available. (Total budget, divided by 5200 population).

American Liberty Elm: Kim to update. FREC to donate bench tops & backings, need to find pilings, possibly also legs(Approach shop teacher again) Kris-To see that plaque gets mounted to building. (Palque- working on mounting it to wall- Kitty suggested we try and source recycled wood. Group (esp. Kitty and Nina) to work on this. We still need to have an official ceremony.
White Pine at Antrium: Kris spoke w/ head of ground, kitty left him a Voice Message.
Sharon- Guidestar.com (or org) , can highlight 5 programs on this not-for-profit email with endowment program. Info needed- our mission statement, what we’re looking for. Sharon- working on it.
New Busines Kitty : Asking the town to switch to all recycled paper. Also, Kitty to ask Cathy Sogarka for help.Kitty to update. Note: $414 difference if the borough hall switched to recycled paper. Town currently pays: $32.40 per case of paper at Staples. They have 100% recycled paper at $42.74/case. The Clerk’s office has been copying on both sides of the paper for at least 20 years. The Police Department uses paper with a partial recycled content at $36.99/carton. The Building Department uses about 5 cases of paper/year. The Clerk's office buys for the rest of the building, except for the Police, and orders approximately 35 - 40 cases/year. Cases contain 10 reams of paper.

Also worth our pursuit: Paperless agendas for Council, Board of Adjustment & Planning Board. For all Council Members to receive correspondence via email would also save both paper and budget money.
We could seriously cut down on paper use (4 - 5 cases) if the Governing Body would consider going to paperless agendas.
