Trout for dropping it off in the Perks lot and the Storinos for allowing that; the Environmental Commission meets tomorrow – they submitted a planting suggestion, with a choice of plants, for feedback; Mr. Leach is moving things into the bath house; the Inlet breach is horrible; Route 35 looks good – thanked Councilman Vogel for his persistence and Mayor Reid for getting it paved (Councilman Vogel: kudos to the Engineer too – he did some follow-up and called them out as the original work was not done to even minimum standards); the State installed sidewalks handicap curbs at Maryland and Delaware Avenues – there is now no excuse not to use the crosswalks; met with JCPL about the Cooks Ln property – DPW Super. Trout will call the electrician to switch service at the Sea Coast property from 3-phase to standard service, so poles can be removed; he will be in Rotary dunk tank on Saturday (Councilman Vogel will be in as well).
On behalf of Councilman Santanello, gave the Police Committee report – recent training includes Taser instruction, canine training, NJ State Police supervision school, Ocean County Regional SWAT training – arrests for disorderly conduct, shoplifting, defiant trespass and possession of stolen property – warned of loose change and other items being taken from unlocked vehicles overnight – District 3 & 4 parking ordinances and seasonal one-way streets are in effect; 34 PPB Special Officers are graduating tonight and starting work on May 19th – it's National Police Week – honored 145 officers who lost their lives in 2016 and 48 in 2017.

Councilman Mayer: questioned what the Festival of the Sea is costing taxpayers – asked Councilman Vogel if there is any financial information – not ready to move forward on it because of his concerns – asked that item 1d be voted on separately (ITEM 1D WILL BECOME RESOLUTION 4); asked that it be clarified that APPROVAL OF ITEM 1R WOULD BE UPON BOND ORDINANCE BECOMING ADOPTED AND BECOMING EFFECTIVE; reminded Clerk to remind the Parking Authority of information that must be obtained for item 1w; asked that ITEM 3A BE HELD (no objection), as it is not just reimbursement for Special Officers, but regular officers as well – there is some history on this with the Court Shared Services agreement; not convinced that all police vehicles should become SUVs – sedans are cheaper by 15% or more (Lt. Quaglia: are significantly down on vehicles – if one breaks down or if there is an accident, will be dead in the water) also not clear on the account to which it’s being charged – needs more information from BA/CFO Riehl, so he would abstain on item 3f; 2 bond ordinances on are on the agenda for 2nd reading; spoke about Parking Authority Ordinances – explained that a Parking Services Agency would be part of the municipal government – not a separate authority – limited budget – provides for the appointment of a Supervisor of the Parking Services Agency (Councilman Vogel: still allows the use of PATS; Councilman Cortes....)
