PRESENT: MAYOR NICOL, COUN. BOLGER, GARRUZZO, GORHAM, NOLAN, SCOTT & SHAAK. ATTORNEY MONTENEGRO & ADMINISTRATOR NOLAN.

Mayor Nicol convened the work session in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and recognized the Administrator who advised that he had nothing to report, but he added that he had received bids for the improvements to Brielle Park and, since there was a qualified low-bidder, he asked permission to add a resolution to the consent agenda to authorize the work.

The Administrator also noted that the Borough's part-time summer worker had left the Borough's employ; he asked permission to hire Christopher Scimeca as a replacement. Permission was granted.

William Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road, was recognized and he asked if an effort had been made to find a Brielle resident for the position?

The Administrator advised that his Assistant, Ms. Sherri Hopkins, had reached out to a number of local residents, but none had been interested. Superintendent Burkhardt added that Mr. Scimeca had recently performed community service work in the Borough and he was familiar with the job and its requirements.

The work session was adjourned at 7:34 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Shaak, seconded by Coun. Nolan.

Coun. Scott found the numbers to be "discouraging" and she further bemoaned the fact that Brielle was not among the top five communities for recycling in Monmouth County despite all the effort being made by the Borough's "wonderful" Recycling Coordinator.

Coun. Scott believed that, in a time of tight financial budgets, recycling was a means to reduce the amount of the waste stream and the attendant landfill fees, while gaining revenue from the sale of the recycled materials and from the State in terms of the annual tonnage grant.

The current market for recyclables was healthy and Coun. Scott intended to discuss the situation with the Borough's contracted hauler to insure that all the provisions of the Borough Ordinance that prohibited placing recyclable material in with the trash were enforced.

Mr. Burkhardt interjected that newspaper and mixed paper continued to be the number one recyclable product with metal a close second.

In closing Coun. Scott noted that the Newsletters would be distributed in the near future.

Coun. Nolan noted that the Library would be continuing its program of authors with Doctor Daniel Tamasulo on July 25th. The Library would also host a crochet and chat program on Thursdays during July & August. Classic Films will be shown on Wednesday afternoons. The annual book sale would be held prior and during Brielle Day.

The Brielle Board of Recreation would hold Flag Football sign-up on August 1st at Borough Hall and on July 21St at the Recreation Shed. Coun. Nolan was also pleased that the bid for the upgrade of the tennis courts had been awarded.

Coun. Garruzzo having no report, Coun. Shaak advised those assembled that twenty volunteer fire fighters had received their certification in extrication. He termed this a "win/win" for the public.

Coun. Shaak also advised the approach to the Route 70 Bridge would be paved during the next two weeks and residents were urged to take an alternate route. The project was almost done and demobilization should be completed by early September.

Coun. Shaak also advised that the traffic patterns on the Route 35 Bridge would be altered as work began on the center lanes.

Coun. Bolger advised that his committee was continuing to review the political sign ordinance and would have a recommendation to the Council by the next meeting.

Coun. Gorham having no report and there being no public comment the meeting was adjourned at 7:50 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Shaak.
