Mayor Barrella: a couple of weeks ago there was a fire on Washington Avenue – two of our police officers, Kyle Boturla and Chris Mosca, pulled the resident to safety – five minutes later he would have been perished in the blaze – they saved this man’s life and we all owe them a debt of gratitude – thanked them for theme for their heroic efforts – going to have a more formal presentation honoring them for their heroism at next Council meeting – thanked them and we all owe them a debt of gratitude.

Tim Tracey, Monmouth University Polling Institute: spoke about Point Pleasant Beach participation in Polling Institute’s ‘Sandy Recovery’ survey – received a grant from N J Recovery Fund to track and understand some of the issues affecting residents who were affected throughout the State of New Jersey as a result of ‘Sandy’ – the Institute’s ‘Sandy Recovery’ survey is a web-based survey which gives residents an avenue to convey some of the issues they dealt with and are continuing to deal with as they recover from ‘Sandy’ – the focus will be on residents that were displaced from their homes for one month or longer – are interested, however, in hearing from any residents that were impacted in any way by ‘Sandy’ – ultimate goal is to ensure that these issues remain in the public eye – also, attempting to build a resource page for those recovering from the storm – with the results of the survey, hoping to create a ‘best practices’ for keeping the lines of communication open during times of disaster – asked for link from town website to Institute’s survey.
After discussion, consensus was to allow link on town website – also suggested that Mr. Tracey reach out to both the Ocean Star and Patch.

Department head memos and correspondence were discussed, with several items moved to agenda for action. Attorney Gertner addressed alley vacation item: had the opportunity to review it with the engineer and have spoken to Mr. Jackson, who represented the applicant before the Board of Adjustment, a number of times – based on the totality of the circumstances, recommended, if it’s the Borough’s pleasure, to authorize and permit the applicant to build within the existing footprint, subject to a formal agreement between the applicant and the Borough and to authorize the Borough Attorney and Borough Engineer to work with the applicant to do that – reason for taking that minimal step is because some of the information provided by Mr. Jackson, today, may obviate the necessity of the Borough taking any specific action based on the title search, as well as, the resolution presented by the Board of Adjustment – prudent course to take from the Borough’s perspective and assists the applicant in making sure that she understands that the Borough is supportive of her rebuilding something that has been there beyond the lifetime of everyone in the room but at the same time ensuring that it’s done correctly; Mayor Barrella: got something Thursday from Councilman Cortes that dealt with a zoning issue – checked with Attorney and Engineer and neither had reviewed it – think appropriate action is for the Borough Engineer to review it (Councilman Cortes: adopted model state ordinance, on March 19th, this would get our ordinance in line with that) should have our Attorney, Planning Board Attorney and Engineer weigh in (Councilman Cortes: it should start here and then go forward to Planning Board Attorney & Borough Engineer; Councilman Cavagnaro: there was a protocol to draft an ordinance, first it would go before the public – then it would go to professionals for review – then it would come back to Council – purpose was to build consensus before first draft of ordinance – policy Council should be aware of and follow going forward – if it hits for first reading, public isn’t award and they’re not getting input – the suggestion is Council creates law on first reading and then try to fix what’s wrong with it – no Governing Body should approach the law from that point of view, especially something like this – with this type of policy, all of our professionals and department heads get to look at it and get input – then Council can decide if it’s something they want to move forward with; Councilman Cortes: just trying to get in line with what Council passed in March – just trying to provide relief).
Motion by Councilman Cortes, to add to agenda for first reading, was seconded by Councilman Reid and defeated by roll call vote.
VOTE: Council Members Reid, Cortes, Mayer….YEA
Council Members Cavagnaro, Gordon, Tooker and Mayor Barrella….NAY
Motion by Councilman Mayer, to refer matter to Borough Engineer, Construction Official and Zoning Official, was seconded by Councilman Reid and carried by roll call vote.

COMMITTEE REPORTS

Councilman Reid: Lake of the Lillies spraying is scheduled for tomorrow – second round was scheduled for last fall but was negated due to storm – another round is scheduled for spring (Councilman Cavagnaro: then phragmites can be cut; BA/CFO Riehl: have general permit so residents can cut phragmites on their property) need two or more sprayings to get chemical to work – need to let the chemicals seep into the roots – should tell them not to cut until the spring, after the next spraying(Councilwoman Tooker:
planting plan still being worked on and revised and will be done next spring).

Councilman Cortes: presented detailed breakdown of costs for Pleasure Park lights – met with McKeon Electric and can get lights back working on timers for a one-time cost of about $4K – JCP&L is selling us the existing hardware for $1 and has waived that fee – replacement bulbs are $45 each and have been working for the last five years – pole replacement costs are $200 each and have not been an issue since placement in the Park – will save money on running the lights since they were on 24/7 and will now be on timers (Councilman Gordon: need to factor in DPW labor costs for maintaining) DPW has a bucket truck and can change bulbs during normal work day (Councilman Gordon: don’t have an issue with this, but concerned about what other responsibilities JCP&L will shirk and cede to the town) JCP&L issue was moving their trucks across our private property (Mayor Barrella: asked what would happen when timer went bad as they are no longer being made) McKeon Electric is using a different timer with a replacement cost of $90 each (Councilman Reid: reminded all that the lights were on 24 hours/day and were aggravating our residents who lived adjacent to the Park – for a minor cost, the town can take it over and control it; Mayor Barrella: not a bad idea but they should write us a $4K check to re-wire it; BA/CFO Riehl: clarified that this was already approved at the last Council meeting; Councilwoman Tooker: asked if town had the $4K; BA/CFO Riehl: can find it; Attorney Gertner: if the contract wasn’t signed and forwarded, can hold it until Council gets an answer; Mayor Barrella: suggested holding it for another three week) will check with JCP&L; commended Fire Department for assisting at Seaside Boardwalk fire and for containing Washington Avenue house fire – met with Chief Fox and members Pasola, Grace and Mickle to discuss need for rescue vehicle and he provided a YTD breakdown of 201 calls(25 structure fires, 31 motor vehicle accidents, 83 smoke alarms, 26 gas/carbon monoxide alarms, 9 hazardous conditions, 1 brush fire, 4 vehicle fires, 9 downed utility wires in road, 9 water rescues and 4 FAST responses) – rescue vehicle would have been the first truck out to 79 of those calls – they will come before Council in November to make presentation – need for vehicle is supported by these numbers; Recreation hosted ‘Family’ fishing night and had good attendance – Recreation basketball is gearing up; still working out details on “Buy a Board” program.

Councilman Cavagnaro: congratulated Chamber on successful Seafood Festival and complemented DPW for their cleaning effort – Chamber’s ‘Chowder Fest’ is scheduled for October 12th and they could use some volunteers to help; Shade Tree Commission received a grant for 75 trees – will be planting in the Broadway corridor and on Arnold Avenue, between Boston and Ocean Avenues, to replace the pines that were destroyed by ‘Sandy’ – going to clear brush near ATM, plant some trees and establish a seating area – thanked them for their efforts (Councilman Reid: asked that, should any tress be left over, they be planted in the town property between the Little League fields and Pleasure Park) predicated on income level and geographic location, but will relay request; Boston Avenue roadway improvements, between lake and Arnold Avenue, included on Bond Ordinance for introduction tonight; Building and Grounds Committee reviewed possible streets for the next grant – choices are Homestead and Princeton Avenues; provided non-resident taxpayers concerns to Council and asked for Council consensus (Councilman Mayer: spoke with Mr. Sloan about expense and revenue reports – have no problem meeting with them but don’t think we need to formalize anything by creating a sub-committee to Finance Committee; Councilman Reid: also spoke with Mr. Sloane regarding garbage pick-up on Saturdays; Mayor Barrella: budget formulation is a deliberative process – expense and revenue reports are a matter of public record – seeing the budget documents before the public is problematic – would be creating an ad hoc committee to advise the Finance Committee; BA/CFO Riehl, in response to Councilman Mayer’s question on her thoughts: agree that they should be provided any public documents but discuss many intricate details in draft mode – would not be right for them to see it, not only before the public, but before other members of the Governing Body) was a concern that benches became projectiles during the storm with a suggestion that Council require that bench owners procure insurance for their benches (Mayor Barrella: should work with Borough Attorney on that; Council Members Gordon, Reid and Cortes: expressed concern and asked if other towns were requiring same; Mayor Barrella: will those purchasing boards in ‘Buy A Board’ program have to insure them, too) – to provide) second homeowners comprise 40% to 45% of our property owners and they are looking for a weekend drop-off location for garbage (Councilman Reid; this came up a few years ago, drop-off was not financially feasible – that’s why garbage does not have to be in cans, but can be put out in bags; Mayor Barrella: the recycling center is open on Saturdays – garbage would be a nightmare – there are certain benefits to owning a second home but there are certain inconveniences – for the first nine years I owned my home here, I took my garbage home with me after the weekend because pick-up was on Tuesday instead of Monday) also have weekend pick-up in some areas and Cushmans that go up the alleyways; shared revised plans for new Police substation on Boardwalk – approximately 3300 square feet with a ball park cost for structure between $1.2M and $1.6M – if there is a consensus to move forward, can look into donations and grants to defray building costs; Beautification is looking to purchase more barrels – Gazebo is being fixed (BA/CFO Riehl: received check from insurance company for vandalism damage) security cameras are in bond ordinance and Chief is going to make every effort to get one there (Chief O’Hara: trees will have to be trimmed; Mayor Barrella: did not address the Chief’s memo on the addenda; Chief O'Hara: attrition rate of seasonal officers is high, lost 57 since last September – lost 80+ in last 18 months – looking to make sure there is enough manpower in summer 2014 – academy starts in mid-December – need testing and backgrounds before they are sent to the Academy – these purchase orders are to cover those costs – target is 55 officers).

Councilman Mayer: worked with BA/CFO Riehl on answers to ‘Best Practices’ [BA/CFO Riehl at 86% which equates to no aid being withheld – clearing up several with resolutions tonight – 1) require elected officials to attend at least one instructional course per year which has been approved for continuing education credits; Attorney Gertner: suggested all take the JIF course at the NJSLM Conference which gives the town a $250 credit on their insurance bill for each Council Member that attends; BA/CFO Riehl: 2) requires that the risk assessment, done during annual audit, be discussed with the Governing Body – 3) require that we hire a Financial Advisor, through the RFP process, on an annual basis; Councilman Mayer: would prepare official prospectus to be issued to potential lenders for note sales; 4) requires Purchasing Agent, Kathryn Beno, to attend Finance Committee meetings – 5) authorizes CFO to prepare and explain a 5 year trend of surplus) rating agencies want to see that you have a surplus policy and your ratings are dependent on it (Mayor Barrella: much easier to have a surplus policy, if State didn’t continue to draw off your energy receipts tax to balance the State budget; BA/CFO Riehl: 6) authorizes set-up of a dedicated trust fund for snow removal].
Councilman Gordon: commended police and fire personnel for fantastic job performed on night of Washington Avenue house fire; gave police activity report for period from 9/10/13 through 9/30/13 – 11 arrests for assault, disorderly conduct, possession of controlled substances, obtaining controlled substances by fraud, causing false public alarm, theft and DWI – subjects were arrested for traffic warrants and warrants from other jurisdictions – responded to 23 motor vehicle accidents and 47 first aid calls – received 16 theft complaints and 5 criminal mischief reports.

Councilman Mayer: Open Space Committee has been working on a report regarding ‘Surf Taco’ building – gathering information – looking into cost of flood insurance.

Councilwoman Tooker: gave kudos to Fire Department, Police and First Aid; saw Police and DPW everywhere all day long during Seafood Fest – think we need to plan for recycling next year (Councilman Mayer: recycling revenue is down); Animal Welfare Committee’s fall fundraiser is November 17th at Coastal Chaos on Arnold Avenue – have some kittens for adoption; Environmental Commission going to work on prototype for New Jersey Avenue street end including dune planting, retaining wall, garbage and recycling bin and bike rack; asked if garbage and recycling cans were in Budget (Councilman Mayer: had some discussion – was money in one of the trust funds) Environmental Commission will have some recommendations; there will be no bonfire in conjunction with Homecoming Parade this year.

Mayor Barrella: Governor issued executive order this week which basically says the dunes will be built from Island Beach State Park to the Manasquan Inlet, talked about taking property and worked out a deal with the Karans in Harvey Cedars for $1 – situation in Point Pleasant Beach is different – 2/3 of the town on the north end, does not have houses, which would be protected by the dune, owned by the same person that owns the beach – whole rationale in the Harvey Cedars case is that the benefit, in the form of protection to that home, offsets the loss in property value through the taking of the property for the dune easement – when the State starts taking property between the Manasquan Inlet and New Jersey Avenue, they will be taking commercial beach – State must realize it’s a different dynamic - have asked for a meeting with Commissioner Martin to explain the situation – we want the dunes and don’t want this to be a last minute stumbling block – Governor has to understand that when he threatens a private homeowner on the south side of town, he must be willing to follow through by taking the beach from a million dollar corporation on the north side of town – would like to see a resolution, supported by entire Council, supporting dunes throughout the Beach, from the Bay Head border to the Manasquan Inlet – critical that the State be made aware that they have to do the entire town and anything less is unacceptable; had an incident several weeks ago – Ashley Chieco was involved in a motor vehicle accident which ended in her death and in serious injury to the driver of the other vehicle – Ms. Chieco has been drinking at Martell’s, according to newspaper reports, from 11AM to 5PM – also according to newspaper reports, she walked into a Martell’s parking lot, which was a valet lot, and took a car, which was not hers, driving north to set off this chain of events – Old Bridge police department has seized evidence in the form of tapes and receipts from Martell’s and forwarded them to the ABC – through the proper channels, we have been making inquiries as to when those materials will be released to us for evaluation as to the right course of action, given the circumstances; read Bond Ordinances and Capital Surplus Ordinance quickly and asked about bonding for Fire Chief’s vehicle (Councilman Mayer: have capital surplus and would like to move away from bonding for vehicles) bonding for turn-out gear which has a shorter useful life than vehicles – have three ordinances that could have been one and what was the cost (Councilman Mayer: recommendation was to do it in three – two bond ordinances are there are different sources for the down payment – concerned with the non-FEMA Boardwalk Ordinance that it could be delayed if the $50K payment was not made quickly – didn’t want the other capital projects delayed for that reason – cost was about $500 per ordinance) felt the car could have been put into the same ordinance as the turn-out gear.

Attorney Gertner: Borough of Bay Head is talking about building a revetment, basically a wall, on private property – some interest from Beach property owners – concerns about what happens at the end of that revetment, particularly dependent upon the design – the Beach’s position was that they were not in favor, based on the current design – the design had a hook at the end – what could happen, particularly during a nor’easter, is that it would act as a funnel (Councilman Gordon: important to mention, that we relied on input from Dr. Farrell, who is the dune expert, and the Borough Engineer).

BA/CFO Riehl: no report

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION (Non-Agenda Items, First Reading of
Ordinances and Resolutions) BEGAN AT 9:29PM

Cindyjean Brodeur, Point Pleasant and Beach Transport Workers Union representative: asked for clarification of Ordinance 2013-37 and if it pertained to TWU (Clerk Ellsworth: to TWU and other positions – affects personnel titles and salaries in Borough Code at sections b, c, d, e f &g – removes beach attendants) and resolution 4F – still in negotiations and fact finding – asked if moving forward without negotiation (Mayor Barrella: Labor Counsel advised us that this is within our rights and are going ahead).
Vince Castin, Point Pleasant Beach (PPB): asked for update of Lake Little Silver (Mayor Barrella: Ba/CFO has been on phone with Mr. Case about cleaning out the storm sewers on Route 35- I've been in touch with DOT Asst. Commissioner Anthony Attanasio about a problem priority checklist, which the Borough Engineer needs to complete as to why Route 35 is causing a problem with Little Silver Lake – Route 35 drains too large of an area into Little Silver Lake Borough Engineer would like to see pump built at the north end of town which pump that water out to the Will's Hole/Manasquan Inlet area and avoid pumping it to Little Silver Lake – asking them to look at the 50-60 year old infrastructure to determine whether it’s still adequate (Councilman Mayer: letter of intent to dredge was filed – asked BA/CFO to remind Engineer that EIT cut-off is October 7th; Councilman Reid: several different parts to the puzzle; Mayor Barrella: pump station is a $6M to $8M tab – they are spending that for 8 pumping stations from Island Beach to Bay Head – asked that they include a 9th station in the Beach – we are being told the way to get this done is to complete this problem statement; Attorney Gertner: Council is doing the same thing here as it did with Lake of the Lillies – meticulously following the steps – by showing that Route 35 is cause of the problem, it grabs the State in – the Borough Engineer did a drainage study for Lake of the Lillies and the County and State stepped up) asked about the MOU with Jenkinsons Pavilion, Jenkinsons South and Ocean Dunes (Mayor Barrella: contribution agreement for non-FEMA Boardwalk reconstruction); asked about the Fire Chief’s car (replacement for a 15-year old vehicle).
Anne Lightburn, PPB: asked if CAFRA permit for Boardwalk extension (eastward at southern terminus) had been approved (BA/CFO Riehl: yes) asked about doing this little piece along with Boardwalk Plaza area (Councilman Mayer: add an alternate during bid process; BA/CFO Riehl: already done).
Marilyn Burke, PPB: asked about hiring of public works laborers (Barrella: already part-time 11 month employees – doing away with that position as Obamacare has effectively eliminated that position as the town would have had to provide them benefits, anyhow – new ordinance is a 30% reduction in starting salaries – Borough has to move forward and doing so on Labor Counsel's recommendation); asked what the new bond ordinance would add annually to the budget (Councilman Mayer: MOU will be pretty close to the Boardwalk Ordinance – paying down debt, as well as adding this, so basically a wash – these bonds are for capital projects that were vetted and attached to the current budget) concern is how it will affect the average taxpayer – more bonds, more debt – have to start focusing on the cost (Mayor Barrella: bonding for annual expenses is a horrendous thing and what got the State of New Jersey into trouble – Beach’s bonding has always been for capital improvements or for assets that have a useful life that meets the bonding threshold of 5 years or more) asked if there is anything that could be put off until later.

Motion by Councilman Gordon, to close public participation, was seconded by Councilman Cortes and carried by consensus of Council.
