Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Nolan, Scott, Shaak, & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol then called for Committee Reports and recognized Coun. Visceglia who advised that he had nothing to report.

Coun. Scott noted that October had been a busy month with hydrant flushing, the cessation of brush collection and the beginning of leaf collection. Flu Shots had been given at the Curtis House, where a number of organizations were engaged in a variety of activities, but everything went well as each group worked to accommodate each other.

Coun. Scott did lament the public disregard of the cessation of brush collection and she took the press to task for their failure to reference her earlier comments on brush collection in the articles on the council meetings. The Councilwoman added that she was considering taking out an ad to get the message across.

Coun. Scott cited her attendance, along with Superintendent Burkhardt, at a Symposium on Recycling that featured a "Sustainable New Jersey" initiative. Participation would require a resolution of the Governing Body, but the Councilwoman was pleased to note that many of the requirements for certification as a sustainable energy community had already been met and she had no doubt that Brielle could amass the hundred points required for certification.
However, the Borough would need to establish a "Green Team" to involve the entire community in the effort to save energy. While many of the changes envisioned were minor, collectively they would be a significant step forward toward the goal of sustainable energy. Among the programs sponsors were the League of Municipalities, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Rutgers University and the Board of Public Utilities.

Coun. Nolan cited the success of the Board of Recreation's "Make Your Own Scarecrow" & "Chili Cook-Off" programs that were backed-up by the guitar playing of Paul Cilinski. Of the fifteen entries in the chili contest, local resident and Borough Engineer Alan Hilla, Jr. emerged the winner.

Coun. Nolan also advised that the Library would continue to hold Yoga Classes every Wednesday @ 12:30 pm and Thursday evening @ 6:30 pm. The annual Halloween Party would be held on Tuesday, October 27th @ 3:30 pm. The Library would be conducting a special story time as part of the event and those patrons who appeared in costume would receive an extra treat. The deadline for applications for Library Trustee was October 31St, and Premier Financial Group would be conducting financial seminars during November.
In closing, Coun. Nolan cited Jim Langenberger's attendance at the Monmouth Regional Health Commission meetings and the valuable information he brought back concerning the H1/N1 Flu epidemic.
Coun. Garruzzo noted that the Brielle Police Department conducted a bicycle safety course at the Elementary School last week and it appears that the children comprehend the importance of observing bicycle safety laws.

Over the weekend several juveniles were taken into custody and released to their parents for violating the Halloween Curfew Laws. The curfew is in effect from Tuesday, October 20th through Thursday October 29th between the hours of 7:30 p.m. and 6:00 am. On Friday October 30th "Mischief Night" the curfew runs from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am, and on Halloween the curfew is 7:30 pm to 6:00 am. The curfews will be strictly enforced.

For Halloween Safety, parents are urged to accompany small children, older children should travel in groups. Costumes should fit correctly and masks should not impede visibility. Reflective tape can ensure greater security and all treats should be inspected by parents. Any suspicious or unwrapped items should be discarded.

In closing, Coun. Garruzzo added that, on Saturday, November 14th, the Police will host "Operation Medicine Cabinet". Unused prescription medicine can be dropped off at Police Headquarters between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

Coun. Shaak congratulated the Brielle Fire Company for another successful series of "Haunted Hayrides" and he cited the long hours of preparation required to make the program a success. He lauded Fireman Stephen Speicher for his on-going role in ensuring that the rides went off without a hitch.

Coun. Shaak also noted the Fire Company had responded to over 130 Calls so far this year and the First Aid Squad had answered 409; it had been a very busy year for the volunteers.

Mayor Nicol then opened the meeting to the public and recognized Dave Dupre, 1016 Riverview Drive, who reminded the Governing Body that a chapter of Brielle History had been lost when the “Scott Homestead” had disappeared as a result of demolition; he felt it ironic that the event took place during clean-up week.

On a more positive note, Mr. Dupre added that a couple had named their newborn "Tucker" perhaps in honor of his honor the Mayor. Mayor Nicol interjected that he knew of many young ladies who had been named "Brielle", but he could not think of any child named "Manasquan", "Sea Girt", "Spring Lake" or "Wall Township".

There being no further comments the meeting was adjourned at 7:50 pm on a motion by Corn. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan.
