WHEREAS, the State of New Jersey intends to undertake a project known as Route #35 Manasquan River Bridge Deck Replacement within the Borough of Brielle, and

Mayor Nicol then called for Committee Reports and recognized Coun. Scott who advised the public that there would be a backyard composting seminar at the Curtis House at 7pm on Wednesday, September 27th. Registration was $10.00 and would enable attendees to not only receive training, but they could obtain either a hand compost machine or the traditional earth machine at a discounted price.

The Newsletter was at the printers and should be in the mail by Saturday. Clean-up week would begin on Monday, October 2nd on each resident’s regular day of collection. Coun. Scott reminded the public that the collectors would not take recyclables, concrete, tires or any hazardous material and, while building material from home improvement projects was accepted, bulk building materials from commercial construction would not be picked up.

Leaf season would begin on October 2nd. Leaves should not be bagged and they should be distributed along the curb line not placed in piles to facilitate collection. In closing, Coun. Scott reminded the public that only plastic “bottles” were recyclable and she again asked the public to refrain from leaving Styrofoam in cardboard boxes brought to the Recycling Center.

Coun. Bolger, along with Coun. Garruzzo & Lenzen had no reports. Coun. Nolan cited the discovery of another dead bird in Brielle, but he added that testing of “pools” within the Borough by the Monmouth County Mosquito Commission had been negative. The MRHC #l believed that the birds became infected in Ocean County and had migrated to Brielle. However, he did remind the public not to touch any dead birds and to notify the police if a dead bird was discovered.

Coun. Shaak advised the public that the Route #35 Bridge Project would soon be under way, which meant that both bridge crossings in Brielle would be under construction at the same time. However, the #35 Project was a rehabilitation project and not new construction so negative impacts would hopefully be minimal.

On a positive note, Coun. Shaak advised that he had again met with Assemblyman Kean’s office and while the promised painting of the two NJDOT overpasses in Brielle had not been bid last Spring for implementation this Fall, the projects would not be bid this Fall for completion in the Spring of 2007. Coun. Shaak attributed the delay to the State’s budgetary problems.

Mayor Nicol then opened the meeting to the public and recognized Bill Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road. Mr. Brannick cited recent newspaper articles on pension and health benefit costs and he asked if the Borough was funding its full pension obligations and what would be the ultimate cost of health benefits to retirees?

The Administrator explained that, unlike the State, the Borough could not defer its pension obligations. The Borough’s obligations and the employee’s contributions were paid into the system annually.

The Administrator added that, while retirees could continue their health benefit coverage through the Borough, they had to bear 100% of that cost. The Borough had no liability in that area.

There being no further questions, the meeting was adjourned at 7:45 pm on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Lenzen.
