RESOLUTION OF THE BOROUGH OF BRIELLE
WHEREAS, the need exists to appoint a Representative to represent the Borough of Brielle at the South Monmouth Regional Sewage Authority as a Commissioner for a five year term commencing February 1st, 2008 and ending on the 31st day of January 2013.
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that Thomas B. Nicol be appointed as the Borough of Brielle’s Representative to SMRSA for the period February 1st, 2008 through January 31st, 2013 inclusive.
MOVED BY: Coun. Garruzzo
SECONDED BY: Coun. Scott
VOTE: Bolger, Garruzzo, Gorham, Nolan & Scott; all aye. No nays. Absent: Coun. Shaak.
The foregoing is a true copy of a Resolution passed by the Governing Body at a meeting held on December 26th, 2007.
Witness my hand and seal of the Borough of Brielle this 27th day of December 2007.
Mayor Nicol then called for Committee Reports and recognized Coun. Scott who commended the Chamber of Commerce for the provision of four Christmas Wreaths on lamp posts at the confluence of Higgins Avenue & Route 71. Ms. Arleen Crowe had been instrumental in seeing that the wreaths were tasteful and she had been eager to meet all Borough requirements. The wreaths had been installed by the Department of Public Works who employed special hardware which did not damage the lampposts. The Chamber hoped to expand the program next season.
In anticipation of snow, Coun. Scott reminded the public to keep all fire hydrants clear of snow. She also advised that leaf season had officially ended and any remaining piles were the homeowner’s responsibility. The DPW had resumed picking up brush.
Coun Scott also noted that she was investigating a new “town-wide shredding” program for residents wishing to recycle confidential documents. The program would not he a substitute for the mixed paper recycling program, but would offer the public another recycling option Superintendent Burkhardt was developing the program which would he based on one run successfully in Wall Township.
Coun. Scott added that aluminum pie plates could now be recycled along with all grades of metal. However, aluminum cans belonged in the bins not in the metal recycling container. Coun. Scott cited the large number of vehicles at the recycling center this noon, but lamented the fact that residents continue to convey recyclables in plastic bags.
In closing, Coun. Scott reminded the public that Christmas trees can be left at the curb for collection, but they must not be placed in plastic bags and they had to be free of any ornaments
Coun. Nolan cited the success of the Saturday Biddy Basketball Program and praised the Fire Company for running four trucks and making over 500 Santa Deliveries despite the inclement weather.
Coun. Nolan also noted that the Library’s scheduled program featuring author Peter Tartaglia had been postponed until February 2008.
Coun. Garruzzo wished the public a Healthy & Happy New Year and reminded them not to drink and drive as the police would be out in force over the New Year Holiday. “Be safe”, he advised.
Coun. Bolger reminded the public that some months ago an “Ad Hoc” Committee had been formed to open up a dialogue with the Board of Education; he was pleased to see the Board’s new Municipal liaison, Kevin Roddy, in attendance.
Coun. Bolger noted that the Committee would be meeting with representatives of the Board of Education in an effort to develop a relationship that would be mutually beneficial to both entities and to the residents of Brielle. The exploratory meeting was scheduled for January 22nd, 2008.
Coun. Bolger said that he was excited about the potential for a dialogue on sharing services and

he was pleased to welcome Mr. Roddy to the Council Meeting.
Coun. Gorham had no report, but wished everyone a Happy, Healthy & Safe New Year. Mayor Nicol echoed these sentiments and he too welcomed Mr. Roddy to the Council Meeting.
There being no public comment, the meeting was adjourned at 5:45 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan.
Approved: January 14th, 2008
