As per the request of Ms. Breslin 07-25E became 07-26. The Attorney explained that the resolution ratified a council decision that had already been made and was not new business. The Council had the option to ratify the action by resolution retroactive to the original date.

Ms. Breslin stated that she was disappointed that there had been no public discussion of the Council's decision to evict the Trustees.

Rochelle Cassie, 103 Lake Avenue, posed a question about the litigation between the Borough and the Trustees, but Attorney Montenegro advised her that the matter was unrelated to the resolution now being entertained and that the proper time to raise that issue was during the public portion.

Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Scott, then introduced Resolution 07-26 to ratify the directive given to the Borough Administrator & Borough Attorney to terminate the occupancy arrangement with the Brielle Library Association for the premises located at 610 South Street, and to initiate steps to protect Borough assets and recover the overfunding. Vote: Coun. Bolger, Garruzzo, Gorham & Scott; all aye. No nays. Passed.

Coun. Gorham, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo, introduced Resolution 07-27 TO PAY BILLS: Be It Resolved, that the following bills be paid, and that the Mayor or President of Council be authorized to draw orders on the Chief Finance Officer, in the amount of same, for payment of the bills of February 12th, 2007, as reviewed by the Finance Committee and as listed on the Resolution and the Computer Bill List amended thereto. Vote: Court. Bolger, Garruzzo, Gorham & Scott; all aye. No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol announced that the scheduled hearing on an amendment to the Zoning Ordinance had been cancelled and the matter referred back to the Planning Board.

Coun. Garruzzo added that the Council had received a number of letters, phone calls and e-mails relative to this issue and it was appropriate to re-visit it. Coun. Garruzzo also hoped to open up a dialogue with some of the concerned parties such as the Manasquan River Yacht Club.

Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Scott, introduced Resolution 07-28 to cancel the hearing on the aforesaid ordinance. Vote: Coun. Bolger, Garruzzo, Gorham & Scott; all aye. No nays. Passed.

The Chair then recognized Finance Chairman Gorham who commented on the introduction of the 2007 Municipal Budget.

Page 25

THIS EVENING WE ARE INTRODUCING A BUDGET THAT CALLS FOR AN INCREASE OF $299,100.00. BECAUSE WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A REVALUATION, THE ACTUAL IMPACT ON THE TAX RATE CAN ONLY BE ESTIMATED. STATE STATUTE REQUIRES THAT WE INTRODUCE THE 2007 MUNICIPAL BUDGET USING THE 2006 TAX RATE, SINCE A NEW RATE WILL NOT BE STRUCK UNTIL JUNE OF 2007, WE CAN ONLY PROVIDE AN ESTIMATED RATE BUT WE BELIEVE THAT THE ULTIMATE IMPACT ON THE MUNICIPAL TAX RATE WILL BE IN THE AREA OF 1 1/2 TO 2 CENTS.

WHY THE INCREASE? OBVIOUSLY, WITH THE COST OF LIVING AT 5.5%, THE RECENT VOLATILITY OF THE COMMODITIES MARKETS, RELATIVE TO ITEMS ESSENTIAL TO OUR OPERATIONS SUCH AS GASOLINE, NATURAL GAS & ELECTRICITY, THE NEED TO HONOR OUR COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENTS & THE COST OF INSURANCE; IT IS EASY TO SEE WHY THE BUDGET WOULD INCREASE, BUT OUR SITUATION IS MORE COMPLEX THAN THAT.

UNDER THE STEWARDSHIP OF COUN. GARRUZZO, ALL OTHER EXPENSE APPROPRIATIONS WERE REDUCED BY 2%. IF YOU REVIEW THE 2007 APPROPRIATIONS THE TOTAL BUDGET IS ALMOST FLAT. DESPITE THE FACT THE COLA (COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT) IS @5.5%, THE BUDGET APPROPRIATION ACCOUNTS HAVE INCREASED BY APPROXIMATELY 1%. SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE. SURPLUS IS DOWN. SURPLUS IS CREATED IN TWO WAYS, AN INCREASE IN UNANTICIPATED REVENUE, SUCH AS A GRANT, AN INCREASE IN STATE AID, OR MONEY REALIZED FROM THE SALE OF ASSETS.

THE ONLY OTHER SOURCE IS APPROPRIATION RESERVES.

IN RECENT YEARS THE FINANCE COMMITTEE HAS WORKED TO CONTAIN INCREASES TO THE BUDGET APPROPRIATIONS. IN ONE WAY THAT IS A GOOD THING, THE BUDGET HAS BEEN TRIMMED TO ELIMINATE ANY EXCESS FAT, BUT CONVERSELY, IT HAS BEEN SO TIGHT AS TO ELIMINATE THE ABILITY TO CREATE ANY ADDITIONAL SURPLUS.

THE ABSENCE OF NEW SURPLUS, THE FAILURE OF THE STATE TO PROVIDE ANY ADDITIONAL STATE AID AND THE ABSENCE OF UNANTICIPATED REVENUE MEANS THAT EACH YEAR THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF SURPLUS DECLINES.

IN 2006, THE BOROUGH USED 1.3 MILLION DOLLARS IN SURPLUS TO STABILIZE THE MUNICIPAL TAX RATE. IN 2007 THAT NUMBER HAS DECLINED TO APPROXIMATELY ONE MILLION. THIS MEANS THAT THE AMOUNT TO BE RAISED BY TAXATION HAS TO BE INCREASED.
Page 26

THE FINANCE COMMITTEE WILL ENDEAVOR TO SEEK NEW WAYS TO GENERATE SURPLUS BY EITHER THE SALE OF BOROUGH ASSETS OR A REDUCTION IN COSTS THROUGH NEW INTERLOCAL AGREEMENTS. THIS PROCESS WILL TAKE TIME, BUT THE PUBLIC CAN BE ASSURRED THAT THE GOVERNING BODY SHALL CONTINUE TO SEEK TO MAINTAIN THE CURRENT LEVEL OF MUNICIPAL SERVICE AT AN AFFORDABLE COST.
_________________________________________________________
Court. Gorham said that residents should feel free to contact him with any questions.

Coun. Gorham, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo introduced Resolution 07-29, Be It Resolved that the following statements of revenue and appropriations shall constitute the Municipal Budget for the year 2007. Be It Further Resolved that said budget be published in the Coast Star in the issue of February 22nd, 2007. The Governing Body does hereby approve the following as the Budget for the year FY2007. Vote: Coun. Bolger, Garruzzo, Gorham & Scott; all aye. No nays. None abstained. Absent: Coun. Nolan & Shaak.

Coun. Bolger pointed out that the vote was simply to "get the budget out there". The budget was a work in progress and would be published in the Coast Star, copies were available for a fee at the Clerk's Office and the budget could also be viewed there.

Coun. Bolger hoped the public would attend the public hearing and voice there suggestions or concerns and he complimented Coun. Garruzzo for his past work on the budget.

Coun. Garruzzo noted that the Borough Auditor would be present at the public hearing on March 12th, to answer any technical questions.

Mayor Nicol then read the following statement. (see insertion). The Mayor then called for Committee Reports and recognized Coun. Scott who reminded the public that, although so far the weather had been good, a snow event was anticipated during the next 48 hours and she reminded everyone to keep their cars off the roadways to facilitate plowing.

On behalf of Coun. Nolan, Coun. Scott cited the Environmental Commissions efforts to provide signage at those public access points that led to the Manasquan River. Coun. Scott also cited the recent PTO Fund Raiser "A Night at the Races" which raised over $10,000. The Council had participated in the event and Coun. Scott noted that her horse Great Scott had finished out of the money. Mayor Nicol interjected that it had gone down at the first turn and Coun. Bolger mused someone shot him.

Coun. Scott also cited the Brielle Education Foundation fund raiser which raised over $20,000.

Coun. Gorham had no report beyond the budget introduction.

Coun. Bolger advised that the First Aid Squad had answered 42 calls in January and 60% were between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. and half of those were after midnight. The calls included six mutual aid responses in Manasquan. Coun. Bolger thanked the Squad for their good work.
Page 27

Coun. Bolger noted that 360 children, more than half of the school population, were enrolled in the Board of Recreation's Biddy Basketball program. He added that the Board was already planning for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Turning to Personnel and the budget, Coun. Bolger noted that a large portion of the budget resulted from collective bargaining agreements and he cited the need to address that issue in future years. The Councilman also felt there was a need for more inter-local agreements. Such agreements were not always popular due to concerns over the loss of local control and he noted that the Belmar proposal for a regionalized Police Department might not be viable, but he hoped that such ideas could lead to further discussions which could spawn new ideas.

Coun. Bolger praised Coun. Gorham for being open to public comment on the budget and he urged the public to actively participate in the process.

In closing, Coun. Bolger commented on the belief some residents held that surplus was a "slush fund", but it was a "necessary & positive" thing. He added that when he first looked at the issue he had the wrong impression and so he urged the public to ask questions of the Council and the Auditor to better comprehend the budget process.

Coun. Garruzzo added that, in 2006 the Brielle Police had issued 2,607 moving summonses, issued 102 parking tickets and had 93 DWI arrests. The total amount of fines was $168,344.93 for a five year average of $176,480.80.

Coun. Garruzzo also advised the public that MONOC EMS had established a hotline (1800-287-3515 #1107, for residents who wished to schedule a free child seat inspection for their vehicle by a qualified safety technician. Chief Palmer would also be posting the information on the web.

Mayor Nicol then issued the following statement:

After many months of discussion with the Library Association regarding their operation of our Borough Library we were, regrettably, forced to seek a solution to our dispute through the legal system. Our decision to do so was unanimous.

On Friday, the Superior Court Judge ordered the Borough and the Library Association to return to his chambers on March 7th, 2007 for a final settlement conference. Until that time, ALL of the Library Association's accounts have been FROZEN and will remain frozen except for $25,000 to be used for operating expenses. The Library Association may NOT REMOVE ANY ASSETS located at 610 South Street including but not limited to books, periodicals, computer systems, phone systems, furniture and equipment. The Library Association must also provide an accounting for all Association accounts, income and disbursements from 2004 to the present, something which we have been requesting for one full year.

The Council is dedicated to reaching a fair and equitable resolution. Due to the status of this litigation, we cannot discuss the matter publicly this evening.

Page 28

Mayor Nicol then opened the meeting to the public and recognized Ron Ernish, 405 South Street, who congratulated the Council on their decision to table the proposed amendments to the Zoning Ordinance. He added that many residents had concerns with it and it was a wise decision. He added that "the Library is your problem".

Mr. Ernish then advised the Council that the statements he had made at the last Council Meeting had been denigrated by an anonymous individual; he had been fighting for the rights of our ancestors and while he did not mind someone disagreeing with him, he took exception to that individual not revealing their name.

Bill Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road, voiced his concern over a recent article in the Asbury Park Press concerning elected officials who also serve as fire commissioners. A State Ethics Committee viewed the practice as a conflict of interest since the elected officials would be voting on budget requests made by the Fire Company. Mr. Brannick asked if there was adequate separation between Coun. Shaak's role as Fire Commissioner and Councilman?

Mayor Nicol explained that the article in question referred to Fire Districts who have elected Fire Commissioners. Brielle has a volunteer fire company and Coun. Shaak is the Fire Chief; but the Mayor noted that he always abstained on any votes that involved the Fire Company or First Aid Squad.

Mr. Brannick asked why Coun. Shaak used the title Fire Commissioner. The Administrator offered that it was a courtesy title. The Public Safety Committee Chairman was the Commissioner of Police, and the other two members were assigned to the Fire Company and the First Aid Squad, but the title was ceremonial.

Mr. Brannick asked what happens when the Fire Company needs a piece of equipment? Mayor Nicol said that such a request would be submitted to the Finance Committee.

Shirley Norby, 306 Brielle Avenue, asked if the Council had put money in the 2007 budget for the Library? Mr. Montenegro reserved response due to the litigation. Ms. Norby asked if the Council planned to meet with the Trustees prior to March 7th? The Attorney said that the matter would be addressed in Executive Session.

Ms. Norby then asked Coun. Garruzzo if the 93 D.W.I. arrests he cited had occurred in one month? He replied "one year". Ms. Norby thanked him as they had all happened in a month she'd be worried.

Teresa Breslin, 20-D Maple Lane, was recognized and she read the following letter:







Page 29

An open letter to the Mayor and Council
of the Borough of Brielle
The signatories of this letter are all residents of the Borough of Brielle and we would like to have you respond to the following questions:

1. What was the basis of the Brielle Police Department's investigation into the books of the Brielle Library?

2. Why did the Mayor and Council decide to take Legal action against the Library Association?

Why has Councilman Bolger not been made to pay for the use of the Curtis House when both he and Ms. Scott said that he called his meetings there as a private citizen and not as a member of the Council?

4. Why was Mr. Bolger (acting as a private citizen) given access to the Borough Bulletin Board and to the Borough Web site?

5. Who is going to pay the legal fees for the "Litigation" the Borough enters into, and bear the cost for creating a new library? It should not be the taxpayers as we have been told that the Council's actions against the Library (litigation and eviction) are contrary to the advice of Borough Counsel.

6. What are the anticipated costs the Borough will have to pay to replace the existing Library?

7. Why were the residents NOT NOTIFIED of the impending eviction of the Brielle Library at the Council meeting on Monday, January 22, 2007?

8. What recourse do we, the taxpayers of Brielle, have against the Council and Councilman Bolger in particular for these unprecedented and totally unnecessary actions against the Brielle Library?

9. Has the council projected the financial pros and cons of their action? This is a critical issue, keeping in mind that the motivation of the council’s precipitous actions needs to be explained.

10. 1s the Council planning to investigate other Borough organizations' books for "surplus"
dollars and withhold budgeted dollars to the Police, Fire Department, Department of
Public Works, or is only the Library the focus of attention?

The following statement was released today, February 12, 2007, by the Committee to Protect the Brielle Library. It accompanied a petition signed by 300 Brielle residents requesting that the Borough Council restore its funding for the Brielle library and permit the library to have and be able to add to its endowment fund.

Page 30

She then presented her petition with eighty signatures to the Clerk.

Ms. Breslin went on to say that the Borough had not acted in fairness and ignored the Library's offer to mediate, seek binding arbitration, or retain two C.P.A.'s to review the matter; she believed that the matter could have been settled and the cost of litigation avoided. This mater had been played out in the press and now in the courts. Ms. Breslin did not believe that the Council was doing its job.

Attorney Montenegro advised that he had never discussed the issue in public and only gave advice to Council in executive session. He advised Ms. Breslin that the public was free to review the document the Borough filed with the court and they provide the causation for the action taken. The Attorney added that the matter had been in discussion for six months with Council representatives, himself and the Administrator. These negotiations proved fruitless and there was no incentive to go forward.

Ms. Breslin offered that that was when arbitration could have begun.

Mr. Montenegro stated that the Governing Body believed that there were certain positions that were not movable and the alternative was litigation that would move the process forward and promptly resolve the issue with a final binding decision.

Ms. Breslin reiterated that binding arbitration could have accomplished the same thing, but Mr. Montenegro noted that such arbitration had been suggested by one side not the other.

Ms. Breslin stated "well I guess Council decided that we have a lot of money for lawyers". Mr. Montenegro responded that mediation also had a cost.

The Chair then recognized Rochelle Cassie, 103 Lake Avenue, who read a letter for the record.

My name is Rochelle Cassie. I live at 103 Lake Avenue. I have a statement to read and a petition to present.

"There is a growing consensus among the people of Brielle that their Borough Council is no longer acting in the interests of the Borough. The Council, they feel, is out of control. Its recent actions against the Brielle Library have been unwarranted, vicious and hostile to the good of the Borough. The charges brought by the Council, they believe, are capricious and without merit.

The Brielle Library, under the management of the Brielle Library Association, has grown to become one of the best small libraries in the State. Its operations are state-of-the-art, its service to the public is exemplary, and it has done nothing to justify the charges against it.

By attacking the Library and its Association, the Borough Council appears intent on trying to destroy a cherished Brielle institution. The Council's actions have made Brielle the laughingstock of Monmouth County and the State and have seriously eroded the confidence of the community in their governing body.
Page 31

I have here a petition signed by over 300 Brielle residents urgently requesting that the Council make available to the Library immediately the operating funds they have withheld for the last quarter of 2006 and that the funds allocated for 2007 be paid when they are due. The petitioners further state that the library should continue to have and be able to add to its Endowment fund.

It is not too late for Borough Council members to heal this open sore and begin the process of restoring public confidence in your actions. You can do that by withdrawing and repudiating the ill-conceived charges against the Library. The signers of this petition are urging you to do so.”

The Committee to Protect the Brielle Library

Let it be noted in your minutes that this petition has been delivered today to the Borough Council.
__________________________________________________

The petition was presented to the Clerk.

David McFadden, 624 Holly Hill Drive, noted that it was said that if you live long enough you'll see everything; he guessed that he hadn't lived long enough, but he found this matter a case of stupidity on both sides. He added that Trustee President Deppeler had admitted to making mistakes. This conflict was akin to two old couples fighting over the china; it was shameful and divisive and brought shame to the Borough. He urged Council to end it.

Ms. Noni Dickerson, 618 Locust Road, felt her tax dollars should go to support the Library and that private donations should be kept private.

There being no further public comment, Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Gorham introduced Resolution 07-30 to authorize Executive Session.

Whereas, the Open Public Meetings Act permits the exclusion of the Public from a meeting in certain circumstances; and Whereas, the Borough Council of the Borough of Brielle is of the opinion that such circumstances currently exist. Now Therefore Be It Resolved, by the Borough Council of the Borough of Brielle, County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey, on February 12th, 2007, as follows:

1. The Public shall be excluded from discussion of and action upon the hereinafter specified subject matters.

2. The general nature of the subject matter to be discussed is as follows: "Pending Litigation".

3. It is anticipated at this time that the above stated subject matters will be made public when the need for confidentiality no longer exists.

Page 32

(Note: Due to the number of people present there was a brief recess 8:20 to 8:23 p.m. to permit the room to be cleared.)

The Executive Session began at 8:23 p.m. and ended at 9:00 p.m. The session was adjourned on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Gorham.

Coun. Scott, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo introduced a motion whereby the Governing Body authorizes the Business Administrator, Borough Attorney & Public Resource Committee to immediately take steps to set up a meeting with the Attorneys for the Brielle Library Association and representatives of the Trustees to attempt to resolve all issues with the Library Association Board of Trustees.
The meeting was adjourned at 9:01 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Scott, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo.

Approved: February 22nd, 2007 ___________________________
Thomas F. Nolan,
Municipal Clerk
