Councilman Vogel: asked Council to consider requesting an extended 15-minute bridge opening schedule – recreational, not industry boats, are causing some jams – suggested 6:00-8:00AM and 4:00-6:00PM, to keep traffic flowing at those key times; Emergency Management is monitoring for the storm – told all to keep apprised and be prepared – be alert and move cars – there is plenty of localized information out there: municipal web site, Emergency Management broadcasting, Reverse 9-1-1, etc.

Mayor Barrella: on September 18th, he attended last NJ League of Municipalities (NJLM) Legislative Committee meeting – was stunned and pleasantly surprised when the NJLM President asked him to lead the flag salute, thanked him and presented him with a plaque – it’s nice to know he is appreciated, at least somewhere, as he then received Attorney Riordan’s e-mail, telling him and Martell’s Attorney Gasiorowksi that the letter he sent to legislators came in his capacity as Mayor was sent from him as a private citizen – serving Mr. Gasiorowski’s purpose – realized, on one hand, why it is worth doing this job and why it’s important and having the respect of your pears – then he had to come back here.

Don Betz, 135 Randall Ave, PPB: “2 weeks ago, I could not attend your meeting – it had to do with handicap parking place, because I was in Emergency…one of the comments that were made…I didn't appreciate very much – especially the lady across the street who, when we had Sandy…I took care of everything that I could…I stayed during Sandy…had 3 foot of water on the first floor and went up to the second floor – I then had a heart…after that, I had to have a cow valve stuck in me – now, my responsibility on that lot next to me on the south side – I was supposed to maintain it and keep it clean – I went to Mr. Trout…and explained to him I’m not in good …can you please take care of the lot this summer? – and he agreed …I raised my house on the back lot…I dealt with Mike Gardner, Elaine Petrillo and Fred (Cohen?) – I’m still in the process of raising it – the only way I could get the (void?) in there was to come in on the town property and to get the house raised – there’s no way of getting back there…in 1998 I came to the Council…Mr. Hennessy was the Mayor and Bob Meany was the Administrator…June 30, 1998 – I sent a letter to Council because I wanted to maintain the property and do something nice by putting a wall up …I can show you that letter that went to Council and that was approved …I am having a hard time still trying to find the other part of the letter and I’d like to get a copy of it to show you…I talked to Eileen today and she couldn’t find it – no one seems to know where it is – but I’d like you guys to look at this, please…it talks about these pavers – they’re 84lbs a piece and…when I was younger, I could do this – the town had given me permission to end up going through Council to put this wall up on these blocks and put flowers in it and trees and everything else, at my expense, which I did – now, I have other letters here and I’m going to be perfectly honest with you – I ran into trouble with the sheathing on the house that I had bought and it had to get ripped off – Elaine Petrillo sent me a letter and said…’…I’m going to give you two weeks to clean up that lot or you’re going to get fined’ – I cleaned up the lot in two days – had her, Mike Gardner and Fred (Cohen?) come over and they said ‘…thank you very much – you did a great job – it looks good’ – now, I get all these letters here – two of them from Elaine Petrillo saying ‘Can you be more specific in what you’re going to spend and what you’re going to do to the lot, besides just putting sand on it and putting gravel on it’ – these are the letters from Elaine Petrillo …I’m not the best landscaper in the world – so I had talked to Ed (pointing at Mr. Cavagnaro)…the other day, cause he was on the Beautification Committee – and I said… ‘maybe you can give me some ideas of what we can do to this lot to really dress it up and I’ll take care of the expense…’ – money is not an issue with me…I can plant trees – I can do whatever you want…in the mail today, I get another letter from the town, telling me that have until October 13th to vacate everything on that piece of property – all the trees, all the plants and everything else that are healthy…I’ve already gone through this Council…I’ve already gone through this whole procedure, as far as beautification goes and what I was going to do for the lot…I don’t think it’s actually fair to be doing this…it has me somewhat excited…maybe I can give somebody the letter you just sent me – and I don’t even know if you know you sent it to me – telling me to do something that I was approved in in 1998 – Christine Riehl has been very nice – I sat with her a month ago – Elaine Petrillo has been very nice to me – I sat with all these people – there is the letter you just sent me – I don’t even know if you sent it – I don’t know if it came from Mr. Riordan or who it came from – it’s signed by Christine Riehl, saying ‘the Council authorized it’…I’ve been here for 50 years – and I tend to agree with our Mayor at the present time – I’m a guy that’s been around – I spent five years on the Rico case and I’m not about to be pushed around – I talked to your Chief O’Hara about a month ago…because I’ve been threatened by one of your politicians in this town, that he was either going to kill me or he was going to make it really miserably, politically…I didn’t bring any charges at that time…I dropped the issue – I went over and I shook hands with the guy – but, since, then, holy hell has broken loose…I don’t want to own it because there is a pipeline going through it – and the pipeline doesn’t work because – I’ve been in construction my whole life also – part of it…the valve is not going to work because the valve is good, the catch basin is good, but the pipe is not – it does not have integrity…at high-tide, the water is coming through the sand, going through the pipe and flooding the street…this weekend, when it rains, water is going to seek its own level and that whole street is going to be flooded…I just don’t think it’s right, what’s going on – and I try to avoid these Council meetings…I don’t see how I got permission from this Council, and went through proper procedures – I had Pasola…he came to my house – Meany sent me a letter – and I told them clearly ‘I’m not building Great Adventure – I’m not building a water slide – I’ll do whatever you want to maintain the property – and I would like everybody on this Council to take a look at what’s over there – and there’s plants and there’s trees – do you want to dig them up and just kill everything? – I don’t think so…I’m trying to beautify the place – I’m not trying to destroy it – the only thing I’m guilty of is, when I put my house up, I did have material on that lot that shouldn’t have been on that lot – and I got it off in 2 days, instead of 2 weeks, when Elaine Petrillo told me to get it off and I respect her very highly…has my blood pressure been up? yea, it has been – and I’m saying somebody should investigate this before they start sending these letters out to people, telling them what they’re going to do and what they’re not going to do, because they don’t know the past history of 18-20 years ago of what occurred here in this Council room and what I went through – and I also had 2 letters from my neighbors that just say…what a beautiful job I’ve done…if you want to see them, I’ll give them to you…I’m not afraid to spend money – and I’m not afraid to do things that are nice – …I am not going to end up getting pushed around and getting screwed around – no way, no how – it ain’t happening to …I’ve already talked to the State of NJ – and I’ve also got someone with the Feds already I’m (going to?) put in an investigation on this…I wanted to drop this damn thing …I’m not going to have somebody come to me and tell me…they’re going to do this to me or do that to me and politically do everything else to me…I dealt with both mob families – and I’m not going to deal with some Cracker Jack in this town that’s going to start trying to put the (craps?) into me because I don’t scare very easily – I’m sorry if I’m offending anybody on this Council – I’m not meaning to, but I’m a little bit ticked off…2 weeks ago, I’m in Emergency and the woman who I helped so much came up here and said, you know – I had a problem with an ambulance that was parked on the town easement for almost 2 weeks and it finally got ticketed and finally got moved – it’s not my easement – it’s the town easement – I understand that fully – but…I got these letters from Petrillo – she’s saying to me ‘what are you going to do besides just clearing the lot and everything else’ – and I went to Ed…and…said, ‘Ed, I don’t care what it costs, let’s make the place look good – I’ll pay for it’ – so, I don’t know what else you want me to do – I don’t want to see any fences going up or anything else – if anyone is going to put fences up, I’ll put up nice fences – I don’t want any ranch fences going up…I would like the Council to go over there and look at the property…and tell me whether it offends you – as far as these Keystone pavers that were put in and the plants that are in there and everything else…they’re healthy plants…a couple things died during Sandy…I’m cooperating with the County all the time – I get along good with Tom Curcio…I’m willing to do whatever you want – as far as my handicap sticker goes – keep it – I don’t even want it…the reason I didn’t want to use the other one down the street was because the kid has autism – and it’s the only handicap spot on the street – but I can do without a handicap – I’m not even fighting for that – it’s just that, after being a resident for 50 years in this town, and to be treated the way I’ve been treated – I’m not a happy camper – I’ll donate – I’ll do everything I can to help other people – but I’m telling you right now, sending these letters to me – all it’s doing is aggravating the hell out of me – and I apologize if I offended anyone who is up there…(Councilman Cortes: asked if he understands that it’s public property – has put cones in the street to block parking) yes I do – it’s a public right-of-way – l’ve had deliveries come back there – the (voit?) comes in with his big machines to lower my house – I, personally have been carrying 12-footers from the street, in, so I don’t put anything on that property anymore – the property is clean – the only thing that’s close to my house – and I’m finishing that up at the present time – my next step, before spring, is to get some recommendation from this Council of what you want me to do – you want me to plant $3K in trees? I’ll plant them…I’m a person who believes in helping other people…I don’t know what’s going on with these letters that are flying back – and these certified letters that are flying back and forth – and if I need to retain an attorney, tell me now because I/(we?) will retain them (Mayor Barrella: confirmed why the cones were out) …the cones were all off to the side – both houses on both sides of me where using the cones…that’s a war zone – and the house on the left, which is Mario’s house is a war zone – and now Cheasty’s house is going up right (Mayor Barrella: clarified that ‘war zone’ refers to post-Sandy renovation – and the area was blocked off for delivery of material) – across the street – yes, and it needs to get done – it’s all over the place – but I wasn’t the only person using that lot…there were people coming in there and actually cracking sidewalks…I did not bring a Clayton truck in there to do concrete work because the weight of the truck would have crushed that pipeline – and I’m not spending $40K-$50K on a pipeline – I actually mixed about 800 sq. ft. by hand, in a mixer – my whole house is (inaudible; Councilman Cortes: confirmed that a cement truck was on that easement – cones were out there numerous times without deliveries being there – thinks he has tried to commandeer that as his own – and it is public – anybody can go back there) yea – and next door too – it cracked all the sidewalks…my fear is if I make it into a park and really do a nice job, what am I going to have at 12 and 1 o’clock in the morning next to my house? – I want to do it nice – he has the smarts (pointing to Mr. Cavagnaro) and I have the money to do it…I have no problem making it probably the nicest spot on Randall and give it to you – I don’t want it – I asked Christine Riehl, ‘you want me to buy it?’ – what am I going to buy? I’m going to buy a pipeline? – there’s no sense in me owning it – but, I mean, to be telling me you’re putting up another – I’ll put up fences, if you want fences up – but I’ll put up nice fences…I want to cooperate…was I wrong with the cones? yes – your 100% right, sir…thank you…the issue, I still think is, what would you like for me to do with that lot? – can I get with Ed, uh, Mr. Dave…and figure out how we can beautify that place or what do you want…I had permission to do it in 1998 – the letter is there (Mayor Barrella: confirmed that there is deadline in today’s letter and that he was given approval in the late ‘90s) – yes (October 13 deadline) – yes (approval October 30, 1998) – I found one letter – the letter I just gave you that points out with Pasola coming to the property – I’ve got to find the other half…that was the first letter, dealing with Bob Meany in order to approve it – what Meany didn’t want me to do is to put a big fish pond up in the front (Attorney Riordan: minutes of those meetings do not have any approvals for any encroachments) you’re telling me that I did not have a meeting with Bob Meany and he didn’t ok it through Council?…somewhere, there is a letter and I will find it… (Mayor Barrella: should be known that the Council minutes back then were far less detailed: Attorney Riordan: even if there were such minutes, the Council is always free to change its mind and ask that the encroachments be removed which, I believe they’ve done in the letter that Mr. Betz has been showing; Mayor Barrella: asked the Council’s desire to extend the deadline 30 days for Mr. Betz to seek amical resolution, as the next Council meeting is October 13th, the same as the deadline) I’m asking the Council to come to my property and to take a look at what’s there…and ask them if they want to tear it all out (Attorney Riordan: next step after October 13th would be to have DPW remove the encroachments themselves – doesn’t think that will happen on October 14th – so you have at least 1 more meeting before anything could happen – suggested that an extension is not necessary based on the Mayor’s scenario)…what is the problem with having plants and trees planted there, that I was ok’d to do (Mayor Barrella: if Council is unwilling to extend the deadline, he can rip everything out himself, or come October 14th, the town will do it for him; Motion by Councilman Migut to extend the deadline in letter 30 days, to give council time to see the property, was seconded by Councilman Mayer and carried by roll call vote. VOTE: Councilmen Migut, Toohey, Mayer, Cortes, Vogel…YEA)…here’s 2 letters from the town – this is from Elaine Petrillo – can somebody please read it and tell me what they say? I read English (Mayor Barrella: asked if they are recent letters) yes…in the last month…can you please read this to the Council?… [Mayor Barrella: read into the record the attached August 5th and September 4th letters from ZO Petrillo to Mr. Betz, (Attorney Riordan: the recommendation did not come from him) the August letter references Variance Resolution 1997-54, requiring him to landscape the subject lot – instructed the Clerk's office to look for the letter (Attorney Riordan: without Council approval, the letter is meaningless; Councilman Mayer: should look for it anyway) is at a loss to understand what is going on – has a reference to a resolution telling him to landscape and now he is being told to pull everything out (Attorney Riordan: this recommendation did not come from him – but he did provide the resolution for the Council’s edification, so they could appreciate and evaluate the recommendations) apologized to Mr. Betz] I would appreciate getting somebody on this Council, because I’m sure everyone on this Council is a rational person, to take a look at what we are talking about and look at what has been landscaped…and what else you want me to do, if you want me to do anything else …I need someone that has some common sense and a rational individual to take a look at what we are looking at here – this thing has been existing for 18-20 years the way it is, with flowers and plants on it and everything else – you want me to sign it over to you? – why would you tear out something that’s really nice and looks pretty and the town can own it – I’ll give it to you (the town does own it)…I don’t know what you want anymore because I (inaudible) the letters from Elaine Petrillo (Councilman Cortes: has seen the retaining wall – this encroachment in 1997 might not be what landscaping is – but his issue is that he has heard from residents that Mr. Betz has claimed it as his own – it’s not – anybody can go there to crab, fish – Mr. Betz gave him a funny look 3 years ago, when he climbed in to check the valve) it’s not mine – I don’t chase nobody – you can’t say that I’ve chased anyone away from there at all – I do ask who is over – there is glass all around that pipe and I do warn people about it – yea we’ve met and I think we’ve had the discussion that the valve is not going to make it work – I’ve been here for 50 years – the pipe, it has no integrity to it – it’s a corrugated pipe – I’ve been in construction my whole life also, with the big guys…I know when something has to be fixed and when it doesn’t have to be fixed – it either has to be slip-lined or it has to be dug up and then a new pipe has to be installed (Councilman Toohey: his expectation is that there is nothing on Mr. Betz’ part to limit access to any member of the public moving forward)…everyone thinks I’m going to park my sports car underneath my house…I will give you a document stating that I’m not using that as a driveway or a right-of-way to put my cars in – I’ve got a 2-car garage that I can’t even walk in right now because it’s full of material…I’ll swear that I’m not going to park any cars underneath that back house – that’s coming out too…I come in here in 30 days (Mayor Barrella: advised him not to wait 30 days – has gotten an extension to November 12th – between now and October 13th, should set up a meeting with Ms. Petrillo, Ms. Riehl and members of the Governing Body to work out a resolution – we allow people to use Borough property all the time – recalls chairs and tables on the Borough right-of-way on the Boardwalk – work with Council to try to resolve) can I work with an individual on the Council because Council is big? – can I work with Andy Cortes on this thing to see if I can get this thing resolved? (Attorney Riordan: whatever is worked out, must be brought back to Council for a vote that must be recorded in the minutes – that was the problem in 1997 and 1998 – Mr. Betz was making agreements with individuals, which were never voted on and are not part of the minute or official Council action) I’m sorry to disagree with you on that Mr. Riordan – I have a letter and I will find this letter…it tells me from the meeting that it’s been approved by the Council for you to do what I did [Mayor Barrella; directed Clerk to look for and identify the file – should be a copy; Councilman Mayer: asked if he is crossing Council action with Board of Adjustment (BOA)]…could be but Bob Meany…actually wrote me the letter and I had a picture of what I was actually doing and what I was building – and he wrote back and told me what I could do and what was approved and what wasn’t approved – now, whether it came from the Council or it came from the BOA, I don’t know – if I could find the letter, it would help (Attorney Riordan: without Council minutes, a letter from Mr. Meany wouldn’t be relevant in that regard) if this was going to go into a legal action, I was going to subpoena Meany…tell Mr. Riordan I know the right people in a much higher state than he is at (inaudible; Councilman Toohey took his phone number and said they’d talk tomorrow) if you guys have any recommendations, I’m more than willing to do it...”
Mr. Cavagnaro: there is water in the street on Yale and Baltimore, with no rain – suspects valve is not working; suggested charging applicants to publish Special Event maps in the “Ocean Star” – did not see one for the Seafood Festival 5K; thanked Attorney Riordan for getting in touch with him about Barlo – asked how Council got information that the pilings are in good enough condition to proceed – asked if those e-mails are available to the public (Attorney Riordan: not if deliberative) – asked if Sebring report is available to public (Attorney Riordan: yes, if there is one).

Mayor Barrella: disagrees with Attorney Riordan’s September 25th letter – will bring it to the attention of NJLM and NJ Conference of Mayors – as a separate, duly-elected part of this government, he has a right in his capacity to communicate with legislators about matters that affect public safety, policy in the State of NJ – does not need Council approval in this area – there is no statutory provision that the power to send letters to legislators rests with Council not the Mayor.

Motion by Councilman Mayer to close public participation and adjourn was seconded by Councilman Migut and carried by consent of Council.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PERIOD (meeting & non-agenda items) ENDED AT 8:52PM.

Meeting was adjourned at 8:52PM.

RE: 135 Randall Avenue
Block 136, Lot 7
Dear Don:
As we discussed in our telephone conversation today, this notice is being sent to request that you carry out certain improvements to the adjacent lot as required by your variance Resolution #1997-54. As a condition of this approval, you were required to landscape the adjacent lot. As a result of various construction projects (the elevating of your home and the repair work on the pipe) it would not be ideal to start this work until the other projects have been completed.
It would be expedient to have all materials on the lot removed. I would also request that you submit a landscape plan for this lot. Once this is received, it will be presented to either the Board of Adjustment or the Governing Body for approval. Then, once all the construction work is completed, this lot can be landscaped. Additionally, please refrain from parking any vehicles on this lot. Your cooperation is always appreciated. Thank you.

RE: Adjacent Lot Landscape Plan
Dear Don:
Thank you for providing a sketch of a proposed landscape plan for the adjacent lot. The plan that was provided to me shows just ground cover. Please provide a comprehensive plan, showing the location of all plantings and the type of plants that will be utilized.
Once this is received, the Borough Engineer will review it and either approve it or make recommendations. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
