VOTE: Council Members Reid, Cortes, Corbally, Mayer, Gordon, Tooker ….YEA

Donna Sellmann, Ocean Medical Center - Brick: Riverview Medical Center started ‘Paint the Town Pink’ in Red Bank 7 years ago to increase public awareness about breast cancer and the importance of an annual mammography - businesses decorated windows and raised funds to provide free mammograms for women who fall through the cracks for medical coverage – ‘Juliana and Bill’ of TV show fame will host an event this year at the Jersey Shore – grass roots, so local girl scout troops, school groups and other organizations become involved – has been in Monmouth county - looking to add Ocean County this year - asked Council to become ‘Pink Pleasant Beach’ for the month of May – already have the fire hydrants painted from last fall and Arnold Avenue center line - would love a banner at an appropriate location - meeting next Thursday in Toms River - 94.3 ‘The Point’ radio station is involved and sponsoring kick-off event (Councilwoman Tooker: suggested speaking with Chamber of Commerce, who did something last year which was good for our merchants; Mayor Barrella: authorized BA/CFO to work out the details with her and added to agenda for action).

Attorney Gertner: asked Council if they had further thoughts on interacting with DOT and Borough Engineer about DOT Traffic Control – must decide how to incorporate Council’s wishes with DOT’s; Mayor Barrella: DOT wants to put stop lights at 35N and Washington Avenue, where one already exists, and at 35N and New Jersey Avenue – they are backing off on the ‘No Left Turn’ from Municipal Way onto New Jersey Avenue – the One-Way Forman Avenue issue is still up in the air; Councilman Reid: that was months ago – talking about 3 lights in a row, Washington/New Jersey/Atlantic; Attorney Gertner: need to incorporate the letter regarding Forman – wouldn’t want to agree, then have this letter forgotten within 6 months – tried to follow through with that bureaucracy – suggested holding another two weeks; Councilman Reid: confirmed there was no light planned for Forman – needs St. Peter’s letter referred to in the DOT agreement; Chief O’Hara: initial DOT plans started in October 2011 when they wanted to put a few changes at the Washington Avenue traffic light and add a light at New Jersey and 35N – at that time, Council wasn’t interested – in February 2012, received correspondence from DOT that they were doing it anyway – the major change at Washington is that there will only be one crosswalk, to cross at the south side – want to add a light at New Jersey, with crossing for pedestrians only on the south side of the street – upon call from DOT last summer, met with two of their engineers, along with Engineer Savacool and Lt. Michigan – they were not aware of the traffic light proposal – suggested angled parking on the north side of Forman, with which St. Peter’s is in full agreement – the south side along the school and church would have no parking and be designated one-way from the tracks to St. Louis – Borough Engineer followed up with correspondence requesting that they implement the one-way and parking changes at the same time the traffic light was implemented, because the Forman Avenue change would force all traffic to New Jersey (Attorney Gertner: that’s why it needs to be an integrated approach) as of September 2012, they were still going forward with Forman and the light was supposed to be completed by June 2014 (Attorney Gertner: DOT’s piecemeal approach is not safe) if they change New Jersey before they do Forman, will push all traffic to Forman and cause more accidents there – if they reverse it, they will force all traffic onto New Jersey – they’ve got to do them both at the same time (Councilman Mayer: questioned DOT’s involvement, as Forman is a town road) DOT is instituting the ‘One-Way’ because the way traffic enters a state highway is controlled by the state – they’re responsible for the stop signs and maintenance of all traffic controls because it’s their highway; Mayor Barrella: must authorize the Borough Attorney to send letter that we will approve, contingent upon changes, make the necessary changes, and return the amended agreement for Council approval (Council agreed).

Attorney Gertner: regarding TD Bank, the issue is the cut-through – per Chief, there’s no issue with Title 39 rights, as police generally enforce these cut-throughs in any event – since Planning Board recommends giving the police Title 39 rights, Council should approve the ordinance to allow police to control traffic on this private property; Chief O’Hara: cut-throughs are already enforceable – speeding and careless driving are not – this would clarify the issue.

Mayor Barrella: addressed Community Disaster Loan Program – attended a number of meetings where it’s been discussed and the Governor is encouraging municipalities to do it – Councilman Mayer and BA/CFO Riehl have had conference calls and Councilman Mayer has been working on it – it’s a Federal program designed to replace lost revenues in a disaster – the threshold amount is 5% for lost revenues, which has been interpreted to include lost ratables, parking & municipal court revenue, beach revenue, etc. – if revenues are less than last year, this loan is available to plug the difference – it’s like a line of credit, though we don't have to draw on it until we need it – have five years to pay it back once we draw on it and the interest rate is ¾ of 1% – it essentially protects the municipality against catastrophic loss of revenue, which, in turn, would place us with a disastrous budget situation the following year – in the past, FEMA has regularly forgiven all or a part of these loans, essentially turning the loan into a grant – makes sense to move on it – must agree to FEMA requirement of a pledge of future revenues to pay off the debt, which would be subordinate to bond holders and other holders of municipal debt – should take advantage of this opportunity to protect ourselves – recalled prior Council leaving levy cap room on the table, which resulted in a difficult financial situation the following year, including 17 furlough days and everything else that went with it – if revenues are not there and this loan is not in place, we will be looking at a catastrophic situation next year that we will not be able to fix; recommended moving forward (Councilman Corbally: this is a safety net – best time to ask for a loan is when you don't need it – doesn't see a downside to applying and doesn’t think we automatically get it, just by applying) must be approved – maximum loan amount is $5M or 25% of your budget for the event year (Councilman Mayer: concerned with the security structure, but should put the line of credit in place) directed it be added to resolutions for action.

COMMITTE REPORTS:

Councilman Reid: waiting for some numbers – issues with water department.

Councilman Cortes: contacted JCP&L regarding all night flood lights at Pleasure Park – BA/CFO sent them an email – spoke with Chief, who’s okay with disconnecting those lights until it can be worked out, either by a fix from JCP&L or by the town purchasing those poles and installing light timers; met with First Aid last week and toured their facility and equipment – very impressive – had 1,496 total calls last year – provided 67 public education classroom hours, with 265 man hours – do a great job; (Councilwoman Tooker asked about street light outages, especially since so many storm-affected properties are dark) explained procedure for getting broken lights fixed (Chief O’Hara: currently, not fixing them due to other priorities caused by storm) will be pushing them – there are dark intersections and streets and a well-lit road is a deterrent to problems the town might face due to vacant properties.

Councilman Corbally: as to the Tourism Committee, neither the Boardwalk nor Chamber have come up with their part of the advertising money (Mayor Barrella: suggested giving them a couple more weeks); met, last Friday, with Council President Tooker, BA/CFO Riehl, DPW Superintendent Trout and Code Enforcement/Zoning Officer Petrillo – Ms. Petrillo and Ms. Riehl will provide letters (to be approved next Council meeting) about enforcing debris pick-up rules – don't have DPW manpower to take care of it – after letter, Code Enforcement will give warnings, then fines – sent a town-wide letter, a month ago, informing residents that free debris removal had ended and they needed to get dumpsters to clear house debris – if not cleared or put in dumpsters within ten days, town would remove and bill cost to homeowners – asked Council to authorize billing of the 19 homeowners who didn't comply – many homeowners did comply [Councilman Reid: disagreed – some people needed more time to get to their homes – people in D3 & D4 have been through enough; Attorney Gertner: have the authority to do so – will eventually become liens; Councilman Gordon: asked how to answer those who were compliant, if we don’t follow through – if Council should subsidize those who chose not to follow regulations; Councilman Reid: asked if this was a FEMA reimbursement item (no) and how much they were being charged] $50/hour for DPW personnel and around $49/yard – minimal, except for one house that had 12 yards and another that had about 35 yards out there (Councilman Reid: with everything happening between FEMA and insurance, don’t think we need to pile it on) have never dealt with anything near this magnitude (Councilman Reid: all these letters don't send a nice message; Councilman Mayer: asked if police patrols can assist in getting notices of items on the curb to the Building Department, which is shorthanded – some debris sat at the curb for more than a month; Chief O’Hara: had a conversation with Councilman Corbally a few weeks ago – patrols were notified to do so – word is out (Councilman Mayer: the Ordinance is clear on the notice – must get it clean and keep it clean – will have bigger issues with the structural damage – grass is the same ordinance – make sure that letters go directly to those people; Mayor Barrella: they were noticed that they needed to move it – even to side or back of house; Councilman Reid: the letter he approved with Councilman Mayer and BA/CFO Riehl provided an amnesty period – that's not what went out – no amnesty period – it wasn't as nice and he wasn't happy with that).
Motion by Councilman Corbally, to support Code Enforcement by authorizing invoice to be sent to these 19 people, was seconded by Councilwoman Tooker and carried by roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Cortes, Corbally, Gordon, Tooker* ….YEA
Council Members Reid, Mayer….NAY
*Councilwoman Tooker: this is just the first wave – people are waiting for their checks – will keep going for the next year – can’t just have people putting items to the curb – it’s dangerous, hazardous and a mess – especially if we want the town to be open this summer, need to take a hard stance now.
Mayor Barrella: anyone who rode through D3 & D4 after the storm saw the magnitude of debris that was put out – understands Councilman Reid’s compassion, but talking about 19 of more than 1700 homes that chose to ignore the rules (Councilman Corbally: actually getting a deal – paying very little for handling and rock bottom dumpster pricing – they’re not being fined and they could be; Councilman Mayer: talked to CEO Petrillo and asked about Council authorizing her to handle appeals to these invoices) Mayor Barrella: not sure that’s a good idea – her authority is to levy fines for infractions – would be more inclined to give appeal authority to the BA/CFO, perhaps with CEO Petrillo’s advice (Councilman Cortes: Waffles and More building is unsafe and their letter was returned).

Councilman Corbally: as to Buildings & Grounds Committee, met with Councilman Mayer and Borough Engineer – Little League fence has been repaired – Inlet lot guardrail & stones contract will be awarded tonight – Little Silver lot will be ready in time and parking boxes installed throughout town in the next week – Boardwalk will go into pre-construction on Friday – will be done prior to Memorial Day – Surf Taco building has been excavated and settled – there is damage – if expecting FEMA money, must rebuild it to their standards and figure out reimbursement before forging ahead (BA/CFO Riehl: if using FEMA funding/reimbursement, must raise it, bring it to code and insure it – could by-pass FEMA and do what we want, because it is a building – made $16K in rent – insurance would be about $4K/year – repairs about $150K to $200K – Engineer indicated that an architect is needed to design a kitchen – lost all plumbing, electrical and kitchen facilities – little more damage to the woman’s side of the facilities than anticipated – sand came up through the flooring, causing appliances to become unseated – plus there was roof damage; Councilman Gordon: before deciding, some business case analysis is needed to determine return on investment – need to consider the fact that this is a piece of PPB heritage; BA/CFO Riehl: recommended meeting with Surf Taco about their intentions/operational ability for this summer) will put a hold on it for this summer until Open Space and all can decide what we want and can afford – would be hard pressed to replace it with no FEMA dollars – garage doors are $1,500 apiece to replace (Councilman Reid: suggested putting orange fencing or something around it so people can’t get inside; Councilman Gordon: agreed that something needs to be done to secure it; Councilman Cortes: asked how the lease with Surf Taco would be affected if it’s not ready for summer) Surf Taco lost $40K in equipment and, as a result, are not looking to operate there this summer, but to renegotiate their lease (BA/CFO Riehl: they’ve been very accommodating).

Councilman Mayer: perplexed and disappointed on the handling of this building vs. others – others are being replaced without being raised – asked why this one must be – building is a treasure – would like to find a way to get it done; Finance Committee met this morning – BA/CFO Riehl has been extremely busy with Berger and the FEMA application, and is handling it well (BA/CFO Riehl: filed with FEMA for everything but workforce labor, the most detailed component – FEMA has been here almost every day – we filed paperwork and they returned it, claiming we should wait until it's complete – Berger representative meets with her daily – anticipates all will be submitted within the next week – will probably get @$6M in reimbursement – $3.1 in emergency funds from 2012 – $1.7 in emergency Boardwalk funding – to complete – Conti, Arcadis which is the cleanup and for Berger will probably be @$1M – must finish Inlet, Surf Taco building, macadam at the foot of Delaware Avenue – must revisit and decide course of action for sand push on the beach – contractor wanted $1M to clean 30,000 cubic yards, which is not reimbursable by FEMA because it's private property) BA/CFO Riehl has been trying to wrap up the numbers for Arcadis and Berger – will need another emergency appropriation to be in a position to finalize application to Local Finance Board for Refunding Bond Ordinance and a substantial Capital Ordinance – hoping it doesn't impact 2013 budget – chunk of liability will carry forward, dependent upon amount of FEMA reimbursement – won't be reimbursed 100% – been some surprises in what will be reimbursed – waiting for surplus number in the Annual Financial Statement – been told it's down about a $¼M from last year – just received draft budget, which Committee will review on Friday; met with Tax Assessor Carpenter over the weekend – expects reassessment to be completed by end of March – assistant from M&M was there – lot of work in that department – will talk about getting them help; asked if there’s been feedback on Hazard Mitigation Grant (BA/CFO Riehl: T&M has offered to come to a Council meeting and do a public forum for residents – deadline for submission is March 8th – T&M will submit letter of intent on behalf of homeowners and any projects PPB wants to include in mitigation) hopes there is a substantial grant pool (Mayor Barrella: there are 3 pools of money – FEMA ICC ($30K), Hazard Mitigation Grant Program, and CDBG, which is administered by the State with Federal money – advised all to register with FEMA and apply for an SBA loan, or they may be ineligible for further funding – even highest levels of State government are struggling for answers – everyone in PPB wants to get things done and move forward, but answers aren’t there – deadline for SBA loans is March 1st – asked media in attendance to publicize that, along with funding loss possibility for non-participants) residents will have 45 days after assessment card mailing to file tax appeals – still working on ‘Sandy’ damaged commercial properties – about 1700 to 1800 properties, with an average of $65K in damage – big reallocation of assessed values – amount to be raised by taxes is allocated over all property line items, based on assessed value – to the extent that assessed value on properties in D3 & D4 goes down, it will increase the tax burden in D1 & D2 (Councilman Corbally: not necessarily a district thing – his house in D3 not being assessed damages and there was flooding in D1 – in general, east was worse than west) reallocation from the damaged to the undamaged (Mayor Barrella: also, if you put it back to its October 1st value by January 1st, no adjustment will be made) Assessor Carpenter requested additional assessors in this budget year, once those damaged properties come back on-line – time consuming because some will be more forthright than others (Mayor Barrella: Mr. Carpenter does this without influence from the Governing Body) very impressed with Mr. Carpenter – very knowledgeable (Attorney Gertner: would have to justify assessments during appeals in front of the County Tax Board – a man of integrity).

Councilman Gordon: provided police activity log from February 1st through 19th – 12 arrests for offenses including, but not limited to, possession of controlled dangerous substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving while intoxicated and for outstanding warrants – 9 Borough Ordinance offences, including misbehaving and urinating in public – responded to 5 assault/fight calls, 9 theft and 2 burglary complaints – responded to 25 First Aid calls and 13 motor vehicle accidents; presented River Avenue speeding survey statistic from January 2012 through February 2013 – over a 5-day period each time – almost 1900 observed in 2012 time frame and 1650 in 2013 – vehicles travelling under 25 mph increased – those travelling between 25 and 30 mph also increased, while those travelling over 30 mph decrease d and over 35 mph decreased significantly – well done Councilman Reid; Open Space Committee has not met – wants their input on Risden's property.

Councilwoman Tooker: FEMA meetings were excellent – thanked BA/CFO Riehl for setting up – Brick presentation is on You-Tube; Environmental Commission is looking for new member; few businesses in downtown area are putting out recycling – seeing a lot of recycling in their garbage – will work on a flyer with BOH Officer Mills and maybe have her do spot checks – Ocean County BOH has been doing business spot checks in other towns and the fines are pretty high after the warning – don’t want our businesses getting hit, but also need to get them compliant, as it saves the town money; asked about opening Delaware street-end for beach access (Attorney Gertner: may be an issue, as there’s a deed restriction) heard there’s a reversion clause now that original owner is deceased – would like to look into it.

Mayor Barrella: thanked BA/CFO Riehl for ‘Elevation 101’ presentation; Lt. Governor was at Jenkinsons with Congressman Smith last Monday, advertising the “Shore is Back” and "Love the Shore" ad campaign – Congressman has been a great help on FEMA issues – thanked him for his kind words about PPB; on Monday, met with Marc Ferzan, Governor’s Director of Recovery & Reconstruction, DEP Commissioner Bob Martin, and DCA and FEMA officials – meeting dealt primarily with maps, although he raised some other issues, including sand – essentially, DEP told us to push dirty sand on the beach – knew there was debris in it and that it was private property – now FEMA is telling us they won’t pay for us to clean the sand we put there at DEP’s direction – doesn’t care if FEMA, DEP or Governor Christie write the check, but not PPB taxpayers; have no choice but to introduce ordinance tonight, as it was handed down by the State, even though there are a number of map questions – Engineer Savacool is downloading SNAP files to prepare a “what if” scenario – ABFE maps were prepared without taking dunes into account – Engineer might be able to map PPB with dunes at various elevations to see the impact on BFE’s with dunes in place; read in local media and “Newark Star Ledger” that the Governor was in Lavallette this afternoon and announced that the 6-year Route 35 repair project would be completed in 2.5 years – from PPB/BH border – have places near Washington Avenue that constantly flood – goes against what Lt. Governor is trying to do by encouraging tourism – if you’re going to make the traffic bad, people won’t come – next step will be contacting people about pushing the start date so it won’t impact the summer – unfortunate that the State didn’t ask for our opinion; serving on a reconstruction panel which will meet on Friday.

BA/CFO Riehl: annual meeting with County Engineer is on the 28th – asked for suggestions on what Council would like addressed (Councilman Mayer: Will’s Hole bulkhead)
Councilman Mayer left the proceedings at 9:15 PM and returned 9:18 PM.
Councilman Cortes: attended Route 35 briefing – going to begin at Bay Head line to Mantoloking, with 2 quarter-mile work zones with single lane traffic, which must be 1 mile apart – 16 hours/day, 6 days/week – expect traffic to be backed up to the Parkway – found no less than 100 sinkholes – all new pavement, sidewalks, curbs – going to address infrastructure, sewer & water laterals – eliminating storm outfalls and installing 2 pump stations in Bay Head that are going to look like gazebos – will be 9’ high, but will be able to utilize as gazebos – will go into the bay with tide flex valves so tide can't come through – talked about conduits from Bay to Ocean so Army Corps can pipe through when dredging.

Deputy Clerk Farrell: added items to consent resolutions, below. Mayor Barrella: no authorizations to hire people in Code and DPW – waiting for TWU to sign agreement, a driving factor to allow hiring for DPW and Code, as there is about a 35% drop in entry level salaries.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION (Non-Agenda Items, First Reading of
Ordinances and Resolutions) BEGAN AT 9:24 PM

Frank Carine, representing Richard Mina, his brother-in-law and PPB resident: brother-in-law is currently living in North Jersey – is demolishing and rebuilding his primary residence – ground elevation is 12' – asked if height regulations will change from present 35' – prefab dwelling is scheduled for delivery in 6 weeks – asked if he can see someone directly for an answer prior to building (Mayor Barrella: Ordinance being introduced tonight deals with existing structures being raised, not with those being demolished and rebuilt – recommendation from Building Department, Borough Engineer, Planning Board and Board of Adjustment was to leave height at 35' for new construction – to go higher, he would have to apply for a variance because there are different requirements for properties over 35’ that the State would have to waive – the State is not willing to do so, sprinkler systems and the like – so plan on 35 feet.'
Dave Cavagnaro, Point Pleasant Beach (PPB): asked about addenda items, as the public did not receive same (Mayor Barrella: listed items 2/a through 2/c) bigger issue is with closed session – minimal information when Council goes into closed session – only information given is when the clerk adds items and people are writing feverishly – asked if, during Committee Reports, Council could explain the items that were discussed in closed session and are being added – public would like better information for better input (Mayor Barrella: the Clerk, Attorney, Administrator or Mayor must be responsible for explaining these items; Attorney Gertner: suggested Clerk opens meeting and adds these items before the reports) asked what is being opposed in 1/a, the OPMA bill (Attorney Gertner: Mayor talks about unfunded mandates – State legislators, who have never been Clerks or governing body members, want clerks to turn around information in impossible time frames, among other things; Mayor Barrella: would have to notice meetings whenever 2 people got together – for example, would have to notice Friday’s Budget Committee meeting); spoke in support of invoicing those who did not comply with debris regulations – all PPB residents were shouldering the costs of debris that he and his neighbors put out in D3 & D4 – that financial burden shouldn't be extended indefinitely – gave people a reasonable timeframe – those who didn't comply with rules should be billed.
Lisa Mueller, PPB: all 4 Little League fields are locked – asked who is the keeper of the keys (BA/CFO Riehl: Little League has the keys – every time we go over, we wind up cutting the locks to gain access; Mayor Barrella/Councilman Gordon: asked that the Chairman be told to provide keys or not lock the fields; Councilman Gordon: Goose Patrol members pay $10 for their dogs to patrol those fields and they are loaded with goose feces) person who has that key should be accountable; Councilman Cortes: will address with Recreation Committee).
Ben Dispoto, PPB: agreed that Community Disaster Loan is a great idea – asked about criteria (Councilman Mayer: threshold is 5% of 2012 revenues projected over 2013, 2014 & 2015); asked why PPB wasn't included in Route 35 makeover (Mayor Barrella: suspects it’s because PPB is already 2 lanes: Councilman Cortes: only doing northbound side, where road divides south of Mantoloking – thinks it’s the infrastructure and sink holes, which we don’t have) we have flooding problems (Councilman Cortes: asked them to provide information on the ‘gazebo’ pumping stations (Councilman Mayer: asked BA/CFO to address the pumping station in her meeting with the County Engineer – would appreciate it if they would address same so it doesn’t happen again) asked about DPW promotions – asked if DPW contract is retroactive (retroactive to 1/1/12; BA/CFO Riehl: promotions for positions that have remained vacant; Mayor Barrella: open supervisory positions that have not been filled, Dennis Russell’s for example) need a hierarchy (BA/CFO Riehl: 5 promotions are available; not retroactive).
Marilyn Burke, PPB: asked about debris removal PO and if we would receive FEMA money for that (eventually, yes) – would be helpful if indicated on expenses – assumes we’re spending more than we are (Mayor Barrella: doesn't know the amount to be reimbursed) asked if it will be stated on agenda when we receive money back (BA/CFO Riehl: not necessarily, but could make a point of notifying the public of what we received); asked about promotion of Police Lt., with all the budget concerns, as well as DPW promotions – we are functioning without these promotions (Councilman Gordon: promotion of Lt. Dikun will put us in compliance with our Ordinance that requires the Department have a captain in its chain of command – it's the right thing to do – this individual saves this town money – asked when was the last time PPB was sued for anything in relation to police activity) can’t identify when the town was sued, but can identify when people have received gross OT, when a Lt. has received $70K in OT (Councilman Gordon: was not gross – he was doing the job of several people in 2011 – in 2012, we finally promoted another individual to Lt., who can now legally assume some of those duties, so his OT went down considerably) asked why management gets OT (Councilman Gordon: as per union agreement) surprised that management people in public jobs belong to unions – don’t usually find that in business (Councilman Corbally: Lt. Dikun has, as a manager, accomplished much in the last 15 years, with hiring and training of specials – he produces unbelievable things from these 50 new recruits – PPB is the training base for other municipalities – he brings an inexpensive law firm into our Police Department – his knowledge has kept our police out of trouble and doing things the right way – what happened to us and the barrier islands with Sandy is huge and a horrible thing – PPB has an opportunity to be THE destination area on the Jersey shore, even better than before, if we keep our town safe and clean with a good school system – Dennis Russell is irreplaceable – these promotions are necessary to keep the DPW group cohesive – when we promote, will still be at the same financial level as with Dennis' salary & benefit – DPW and Police are going to be more necessary over the next 5 years) important factor, and it should be brought up in the agenda that promoting X number of people is not going to increase our budget; thanked Lt. Dikun and the DPW for the help they gave her – it's nothing personal, just looking at it from a financial point of view (Councilman Reid: important to explain that those workers are working there now part-time, 11 months out of the year; Attorney Gertner: discussion is premature as haven’t done any authorization to hire).
Patrice Knight, PPB: asked what happened to Ordinance 2013-04 (Deputy Clerk Farrell: no meeting copies, as it was still in marked-up, draft format and only on for first reading; Mayor Barrella: will make some changes to the preamble, reserving our right to contest – was dictated by the State and will be posted on the town’s website – can go above the ABFE, but not below, and be in compliance with State mandate) asked about timeline for specifics and details; asked about Route 35 and how it will affect construction on homeowners’ properties – asked how contractors will get through with 3-hour traffic.
John Morrongiello, PPB: asked about $30K for advertising and who will approve the advertising (Mayor Barrella: if Chamber is successful in raising funds, we will match $1 for every $2 they raise) suggested that Tourism Committee add "It’s a great place to live, not just to visit" – that ad touted great place to visit but nothing about quality of life.
Chris Riordan, PPB: touched on all the glass in the grass – safety hazard for her with three children – lot of other people, for whom it’s not a safety hazard, don't know how to clean it either – once they let it grow too high, don’t know if DPW will be able to cut because of all the crud in the lawns – have people who are completely disassociated from their homes – grass is going to be a problem – will get fleas – will eventually generate a list and maybe we can offer help from a group like the Key Club or Beautification Committee – things are overwhelming (Councilman Gordon: one challenge is the liability issue; Attorney Gertner: sounds like a Boy Scout project – some organization would have to take the lead to organize volunteers, like the Masons did before, to help those in need).
Vince Castin, PPB: asked about dunes on south end of the beach – if they would stay like that and if any there would be any continuation further north (BA/CFO Riehl: not actually dunes, but sand push – when the sand was going to be sifted, that sand was going to be leveled out – now that the project is on hold, the Governing Body needs to determine how they are going to address that – was never intended to be a sand dune) not a bad idea to leave it like that.

Motion by Councilman Gordon, to adopt RESOLUTION 3: Authorization to request certified Civil Service list for an additional police officer to cover position of School Resource Officer (Closed Session Item) was seconded by Councilman Corbally and carried by the following roll call vote.
Councilman Reid: talked to parents after the Newtown shootings and to the Chief about grants and an officer in the school – no grants for SRO position now, but talks are going on in Trenton and believe money will become available – been told the school might want to participate – doesn’t see where there is money in the budget to hire a new officer (Councilman Gordon: at the December 18th Council Meeting, Councilman Reid said he was willing to pay for it) yes, but since attending a Finance Committee meeting, and looking behind the curtain, we don't have the money (Councilman Gordon: putting a price tag on children’s safety) there are still ways to do this – Police do a great job – can do it with the force we have – talked to other forces that do it (Councilman Gordon: already 3 below the number of officers we are supposed to have – already stretching our guys and spending on OT – Councilman Reid brought this up to the public, in light of the Newtown massacre – PPB is always going to have financial concerns – God forbid anything happens to our kids because we are unwilling to put an officer on our school grounds – determined to do the right thing – maybe we’ll have to do without something else, but you don’t put safety in the backseat) clarified that he was for it, is still for it and still thinks there are ways to get SRO officers in our schools – just can’t afford a new officer at this time – can’t just do it and worry about how to pay for it another time – refuse to manage that way (Mayor Barrella: asked about his basis was for saying we can’t afford it – if the projected budget was putting us over the levy cap) worried about the $48K and benefit package, while also talking about promoting Lt. Dikun to Captain – he’s doing a fantastic job and we love him in PPB, but now is not the time (Councilman Gordon: complained that Councilman Reid won't approve anything that costs a penny – for PPB to move forward and be successful, must spend money, or we can lower the bar and become a second rate community – PPB has a reputation of being the finest and he is unwilling to let that slide – we can’t not afford to do these things; a heated exchange ensued; Councilman Cortes: part of the Police Committee – wants kids to be safe, but thinks there are alternatives – contacted 6 surrounding school superintendents and spoke to 3 – they do not have officers in their schools – Point Borough is looking into it – Manasquan has an arrangement for the Police day shift to walk through their schools – Long Branch has their own security feed – there are other means besides hiring an SRO – could hire more specials for that salary – not against hiring at all – heard about the DCA report, but doesn’t want to add another burden to a questionable budget – still waiting to talk to Wall, Brick and Barnegat – should explore other options; Councilman Corbally: in favor of it – people want to move their families to the safest, cleanest town with the best school system – that’s what we need to promote – one of the few beach towns with a good school system and Police Department with a proven track record – can't cut corners on cleanliness and safety; Councilman Mayer: asked the Mayor and Council stop adding expensive items to the consent agenda – this hasn't been vetted – Police Committee had preliminary discussions and Chief incorporated it in his budget request – not a good way to proceed, irresponsible – should be done as part of the budget process, not make the budget process work around it – asked Councilman Gordon if less expensive alternatives were considered (yes, dismissed private security firms due to liability issues, but looked at other alternatives) not fair to use Newtown as example, one officer couldn't have prevented that (Councilman Gordon: not just about Newtown – these and others can be averted through students’ trust in a police officer – goes beyond violence, there’s a drinking issue in PPB) asked when and why program ended and what officer would do (through attrition, when officers were not replaced, about two years ago – would be in the school full-time, September-June – would supplement road patrol during school holidays and Boardwalk supervision of special officers in summertime) asked if Board of Education has committed funding (Councilman Gordon: no, but they would look into it) referred to prior referendum question (Chief O’Hara: 8 years ago there was a question about shifting costs) asked Chief if there is a more financially prudent way to do this (no – national standards won’t allow use of special officer – a full-time officer can build rapport with teachers, staff and students – already have a trusted person on staff to handle school incidents with no need to pull an officer off the road – handle after school and sporting events – constant presence that becomes part of life in the school system and an accepted member; Councilman Gordon: asked if we would recoup cut funding by bring police numbers up; BA/CFO Riehl: not sure, but were cut $24,857 because we fell below the number; Councilman Gordon: there is a move by the State to re-fund this program – asked if bringing on another officer would reduce OT [Chief O’Hara: move at State level to reinstitute Safe & Secure Communities Grant because of staffing attrition in local departments due to financial reasons – now, they’re getting an extra hit from the State because they can’t maintain staffing levels – an extra full-time body would help reduce OT, especially in summer) so, officer’s net cost would be less (yes); Councilman Mayer: net cost over 20-year career is significant – surplus is down, expenses are up – budget is uncertain – irresponsible to do this outside the budget; Councilman Gordon: don’t understand how you budget something if you don’t know your requirements – if we do it Councilman Mayer’s way, will never get another body in DPW, Police Department or another promotion, because it wasn’t in the budget – have to know your requirements in order to budget for them).
VOTE: Council Members Corbally, Gordon Tooker and Mayor Barrella*….YEA
Council Members Reid, Cortes, Mayer ….NAY
*Mayor Barrella: been talking about this for 6 weeks – been pushed aside waiting to see what the numbers look like – spoke with Ms. Riehl and the preliminary numbers show us under the levy cap – if you roll Sandy into it, PPB will never move forward – will always be haunted and never move forward again – we’re short on surplus primarily because our tax collection was affected by the storm – preliminary budget is under the levy cap, while taking these items into consideration – if positions aren't filled this year, because of how the levy cap is structured, and because Dennis Russell passed away, and other things, we won’t have the room next year – had 26 officers when he took office – slowly went down to 21 – sat with Councils who took a myopic approach of cut, cut, cut which lost us $24K when staffing dropped to 21 – at some point, you must decide if you want to be a town or be a part of something else – if you want to be a town, must do what's necessary to build forward – last officer was hired in 2005 – have a number of officers close to or eligible for retirement – must bring new people in or write the epitaph for PPB – sometimes, as Councilman Corbally said, you can’t afford not to do something.

Motion by Councilman Corbally to adopt RESOLUTION 4: Promote Lt. Dikun to the position of Police Captain (Closed Session Item) was seconded by Councilman Gordon and carried by roll call vote.
Councilman Mayer: asked Chief O’Hara the implications of this promotion on his salary, Lt. Dikun’s salary and the need to hire a second Lt. – asked about the salary differential between Lt. and Captain and if there was a mandatory spread between Captain and Chief (Chief O’Hara: 7.5% increase in the first year or about $9K – no mandatory spread and no ramification on Chief’s salary) asked if department must hire a second lieutenant (no, ordinance reads ‘up to’ two lieutenants, but doesn’t require same).
VOTE: Council Members Cortes, Corbally, Gordon, Tooker….YEA
Council Members Reid, Mayer*….NAY
*Councilman Mayer: with all due respect to Lt. Dikun, who is a marvelous police officer.

Motion by Councilman Gordon, to adopt RESOLUTION 5: Authorization to post Civil Service promotions for DPW (Closed Session Item), was seconded by Councilwoman Tooker and carried by roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Reid, Cortes, Corbally, Mayer, Gordon, Tooker….YEA

Councilwoman Tooker: didn’t mention the officer hired would have to start the Police Academy in April; Antrim School student will be attending Future Problem Solvers Competition at the State level – wished them the best of luck.

Ordinance 2013-01 (Repeal of Ordinance 2012-15 – Early ABC License Closings) was considered on second reading.
Attorney Gertner: is holding, in escrow, stipulations of dismissal on all litigation matters by Ocean Dunes and Jenkinsons. The Mayor opened the hearing to the public.
Dave Cavagnaro, PPB: appreciates the art of compromise – reasonable offer to Jenkinsons in exchange for the continuation of the parking program – concerned that some Council members don't support that parking program.
Mayor Barrella: reiterated that the original ordinance, adopted last year, was in compliance with the law – wishes State government would pay as much attention to PPB with respect to ‘Sandy.’
Motion by Councilman Corbally, to close the public hearing and adopt Ordinance
2013-01, was seconded by Councilman Gordon and carried by roll call vote.

Ordinance 2013-04 (Zoning Changes Due to New ABFE Maps) was introduced on first reading.
Councilman Mayer: agenda copy was confusing, as lines didn’t come through – came out better in e-mail – asked about highlights in green (Attorney Gertner: green highlight were State’s changes from the previous State model; Councilman Corbally left the proceedings at 10:39 PM and returned at 10:41 PM) concerned about what happens when ABFE maps are revised (Attorney Gertner: tried to address general concerns about the map in the preamble) questioned items in stray brackets (Councilman Cortes: questioned ‘substantial improvements’ definition; discussion ensued on whether it should be 50% or more OR more than 50% and to what the 50% refers, assessed value, market value, depreciated value, insured or cost to reconstruct) asked if CO Gardner has seen and commented on this (Attorney Gertner: has seen but not commented) need his input, as he has a lot of duties in here; Mayor Barrella: need to get it introduced and to the Planning Board – in the meantime, these questions cannot be answered by the Borough Attorney or CO Gardner – must be answered by Rich Constable, Bob Martin, Marc Ferzan and people at the State, because this is their ordinance and we are being told to do it; Attorney Gertner: if it passes by title tonight, the second reading is March 19th, to permit the Planning Board to fulfill its obligation – nothing to prevent the Council from making additional recommendations – can get Council’s comments to the Planning Board between meetings – Borough Engineer looked at it and some of his comments are incorporated; Mayor Barrella: can change this as long as we approve by title only for now – what's published for the 19th must be what is voted on) Mike Gardner is making these calls every day.
Motion by Councilman Corbally, to approve Ordinance 2013-04, by title, was seconded by Councilman Cortes and carried by roll vote. Public hearing will be on March 19, 2013.
VOTE: Council Members Reid, Cortes, Corbally, Mayer, Gordon, Tooker….YEA

Ordinance 2013-05 (Permission to Increase Dwelling Height) was introduced on first reading. Motion by Councilwoman Tooker, to approve Ordinance 2013-05, was seconded by Councilman Gordon and carried by roll call vote. Public hearing will be on March 19, 2013.
Councilmen Cortes and Mayer: pointed out typos in sections B & C.
Mayor Barrella: practical effect of this is to allow someone with an existing residence with a conforming use to go up to a maximum of 38.5’ – new construction remains at 35' [Councilman Mayer: issue is, if you go 35’ from the curb, or measure it from your base flood at the ground – read e-mail from John Amelchenko who states, “Excluding new construction from relief from the height limitations seems short-sighted. You are eliminating the incentive for people to build/rebuild new houses in the flood zones. I think measuring from the BFE for all residential structures in flood zones is the way to go. It levels the playing field and in most cases will be lower than the 10% (38.5’). You will be allowing existing structure to be razed. I think 30 -32’ from the BFE provides the ability to design 2.5 stories as permitted in the Ordinance.” His concern is that you are going to have a lot of repetitive Board of Adjustment variance requests; Councilwoman Tooker: spent a lot of time on this in Committee with Planning and Zoning Board members and Borough Engineer – starting with a clean state, can still get a lot of house – only allowed 2.4 stories; Councilman Cortes: need to measure off the BFE – if you measure from the curb, will penalize the homeowner on Randall, which Engineer Savacool claims is the lowest point, as opposed to someone at one of the highest points – will penalize the livable and useable space that he’ll be able to build because he has to raise higher off of the curb; Councilman Corbally: disagreed – at 3’ to start, 8’ to raise it, with 9’ more to get to first floor, and another 9’ brings second story to 26’ with 9’ left for ½ story; Councilman Mayer: should be introduced, but further consideration should be given as to whether it’s 35’ from the curb) at the committee level, argued that it didn’t make sense to let existing, but not new construction – Board members, Borough Engineer and CO Gardner convinced him (Councilman Gordon: this is not a decision Council should make; Attorney Gertner: you’ll send it to the Planning Board for a public hearing before second reading here – if a majority of the Planning Board decide you should include new construction, or measure from the BFE, they’ll make those recommendations; Councilwoman Tooker: intent was to help people who were raising their houses – have always measured from the curb; Councilman Gordon; but 38.5’ is okay) if someone’s home is at 35’ and they have to raise it to conform to the BFE, it’s ridiculous to tell them they have to cut 3’ feet off their roof.
VOTE: Council Members Reid, Cortes, Corbally, Mayer, Gordon, Tooker….YEA

Ordinance 2013-06 (Move Single Family Residential Zone Line) was introduced on first reading. Motion by Councilwoman Tooker, to approve Ordinance 2013-06, was seconded by Councilman Cortes and carried by roll call vote. Public hearing will be on March 19, 2013.
VOTE: Reid, Cortes, Mayer, Gordon, Tooker….YEA
Councilman Corbally recused himself due to a possible, perceived conflict.

Ordinance 2013-07 (Non-referral of Business by Borough Professionals) was introduced on first reading.
Motion by Councilwoman Tooker, to approve Ordinance 2013-07, was seconded by Councilman Gordon and carried by roll call vote. Public hearing will be on March 19, 2013.
Councilman Mayer: asked Attorney Gertner to explain 40A: 11-5 and 40:48-2 and the authority for this (Attorney Gertner: it’s the general authority, over which the Borough has the ability to limit its professionals and hire its professionals) asked if he thinks the Borough has the right to impose professional standards on them (Attorney Gertner: it has the right to determine the conditions under which it decides to contract and hire – our ethical standards ultimately, from an attorney’s perspective, and the licensing of an engineer, as an example, come from our existing licensing boards) asked if he is correct that this ordinance would prohibit Mr. Gertner’s wife from referring someone to a restaurant owned by his son (Attorney Gertner: yes, that’s the way it’s written) someone’s pointed out to him that if a Councilman, or in this case his mother or father, owns a restaurant in town, a Borough professional not only couldn’t eat there themselves, but couldn’t send their friends, their secretaries – it’s just over the top (Mayor Barrella: have basically pointed an extreme circumstance – asked for Councilman Mayer’s suggested change to the language) suggested Council does not adopt this language – it’s crazy (Mayor Barrella: it’s not crazy – you look at what’s gone on in the last month with the Chairman of a major party taking a consulting job with a company that was put in and essentially what was admitted to be a no-bid process – look at the wife of a Mayor of a town taking the same consulting job, and you just asked the question – on Wednesday, he heard Jim Gearhart on 101.5 comment that most corruption in New Jersey is perfectly legal – Councilman Mayer has pointed out that Attorney Gertner’s wife can’t refer someone to go to his son’s restaurant) that was hypothetical (Mayor Barrella: not concerned about Attorney Gertner’s wife referring someone to his son’s restaurant, but about a Borough Attorney referring business to an engineer, attorney, lobbyist, real estate person – concerned about the Borough Engineer referring work to someone sitting up here or their firm – if Councilman Mayer doesn’t like the specific language, he should come up with something that is consistent with the spirit that you should not have a Borough professional or his firm referring something to a Council member or a Council’s member’s firm) asked if there are any incidents of this happening [Mayor Barrella: no (both Mayor and Councilman Mayer speaking – inaudible) there were no incidents of a firm being put into place by the Governor’s office and then having the Ocean County Republican Chairman taking a consulting position with that firm, which he believes is perfectly legal, as was the hiring of and awarding of the contract] this ordinance has nothing to do with that situation (Mayor Barrella: no, but it addresses one of those things that we can tighten up here).
VOTE: Council Members Corbally, Gordon, Tooker and Mayor Barrella….YEA
Council Members Reid, Cortes, Mayer….NAY
Mayor Barrella: would be happy to listen to any language changes, modifications or ministerial changes Councilman Mayer would like to make (Councilman Corbally: asked Councilman Mayer if he thinks the spirit is wrong; Councilman Mayer: it’s an idea – asked Attorney Gertner if other towns have this ordinance; Councilman Gordon: asked, why be like every other town – should set an example; Councilman Mayer: asked Councilman Gordon what he does and if he has business relationships; Councilman Gordon: he supports the Department of Defense; Attorney Gertner: most towns have addressed Pay-to-Play on their own level, as opposed to the referral; Councilman Mayer: this is what he thought Attorney Gertner would say was the authority, but that doesn’t work – it shouldn’t be given a second thought – it’s whacky – waste of our money and time – too broad to be enforceable – if you want to limit it to professionals referring things to Council Members, then do that – can’t go into the family tree – asked, if there’s no need for it, why do it – it’s sophistry – political hay) Mayor Barrella: seems Councilman Mayer’s objection is that nobody else does it (Councilman Mayer: it’s not authorized to be done by anyone else – it’s not a home rule state – village rule applies here).

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION BEGAN 11:09 PM.

Dave Cavagnaro, PPB: asked when copies of 2013-04 would be available for public input (will be online tomorrow) Building Department told him if damage exceeds 50%, he would have to rebuild to Code, and assessed value is predicated on a number that exists in town records – if he wants to bring in an assessor and the town accepts that, the number can change – otherwise, current tax records show improvements and land – they look at the improvement number.
Tom Davis, PPB: with respect to everyone’s budget concerns, are in a tough spot regarding the SRO – he and his wife had the benefit of much interaction with a particular officer who intervened on behalf of their child – they do a lot more than prevent massacres – they become law enforcement mentors to many children – respectable adults that they can talk to and get to know – it's important – it’s about $32/year, per taxpayer – willing to pay that.
Lee Kelly, PPB: suggested putting the $30K advertising funds towards new officer’s salary – don’t know if it will raise much interest – certainly not as much as ‘Beer on the Boards;’ asked about Ordinance 2013-04 – assumes the adoption of the maps is in there – been working with these maps since they came out – spoke to a Mantoloking Planning Board member, who lives on Barnegat Lane, less than a block from the Bay and about 1.5 blocks from the Ocean – that strip of Barnegat Lane has a higher flood level than almost all of PPB – wants someone to explain why he’s an A8 – the maps are really flawed – Inlet Drive has the same elevation as75% of PPB – but 75% of PPB wasn’t destroyed like Inlet Drive was – Bay Head introduced and tabled this ordinance – don’t know if any towns down below have adopted it (Mayor Barrella: State has already implemented it and is mandating adoption – our people will fall behind on mitigation grants and ICC if we don’t do adopt – doesn’t mean we’re not going to challenge it).

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION ENDED 11:17 PM.

Meeting was adjourned at 11:18 PM by consent of Council.
