Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Coun. Scott who reminded the public that the week of October 18th would be "bulk" pick-up on the resident's regular day of collection. The contractor would make a final sweep of the Borough on Friday, October 22nd recyclables would not be collected and, as the list has expanded, residents should check before putting an item out.
The Councilwoman also cited an error in the Monmouth County Recycling Directory and she advised the public that metals could be brought to the Borough Yard for recycling on a year round basis. A special marked dumpster had been provided for that purpose and the DPW would be happy to assist residents in recycling their metals.

Coun. Scott also informed the public that the Borough had finally received a grant of mixed paper recycling containers from Monmouth County. The mandate to recycle mixed paper went into effect on January 1st, 2010. Brielle had provided residents with containers they purchased. The County has finally come through, but their containers were larger than the ones provided by the Borough. Coun. Scott suggested that residents use them for their regular recyclables. Coun. Scott added that, on October 14th, she would be attending a symposium at the County to review the status of the recycling program and to exchange new information.

In closing, Coun. Scott reminded the public that October 23rd was "Make A Difference Day" and she urged all residents to share their ethical values with their children and to encourage children to help others since, by helping others, you help yourself.

Coun. Nolan advised that the Fall Festival, featuring such diverse activities as scarecrow building and a chili contest would be held on October 17th. On October 9th, some 300 participants had assembled to play flag football under the lights.

Turning to the Library, Coun. Nolan cited the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" program on October 19th and an appearance by the South Jersey Ghost Research Team on October 25th, both programs were ideal ways to prepare for Halloween.

In closing, Coun. Nolan cited Stephen Speicher's twenty-five years of service with the Board of Recreation and praised him for his on-going contribution to the community. Coun. Nolan noted that "there was nobody like him".

Coun. Garruzzo had no report, but he too praised Mr. Speicher for his dedication to Brielle. Coun. Shaak noted that the First Aid Squad had three new EMT’s all of whom had completed the one hundred and twenty-hour course; he added that new additional members were commencing this training. Membership in the squad was continuing to grow and this was a benefit to the Borough.

Coun. Shaak also praised Mr. Speicher who he had known for forty years and whose contributions he lauded.

Neither Coun. Gorham or Visceglia had reports and the meeting was opened to the Public.

Janice Wurfel, 506 Green Avenue, advised the Governing Body of her continuing effort to locate two flags presented to the Borough by representatives from Brielle Holland in the 1960s and her new effort to locate a medallion that was also presented to the Borough to celebrate the April 1st, 1572 uprising by Protestant Rebels that seized the seaport town of Brill(e) and initiated the rebellion that would ultimately see Holland liberated from Hapsburg Spain. The Council wished Ms. Wurfel every success in her endeavor.

Janice Hendricks, 615 Leslie Avenue, asked Council what could be done to replace the deteriorated street sign at Higgins Avenue & Riverview Drive? The matter was referred to the DPW.

Robert Houseal, 608 Rankin Road, cited the historic maps of Brielle that now were on display and he congratulated Borough Historian John E. Belding, for his work on the project. At Mr. Houseal's request, Mr. Belding briefly explained the origins of each map and their significance. Coun. Scott offered that Mr. Belding had done a marvelous job in placing the maps within the Council Chamber.

The chair then recognized Eric Buckman, Brielle Holdings, LLC, who asked permission to extend his fence along municipal property to curtail baseballs from the Elementary School fields from entering onto his property. Photographs and a sketch of the property were presented to the Council and the matter was referred to the Community Development Committee for their deliberation.

John Miller, 6 Mariner's Bend, voiced a concern over the Brielle Web-Site and noted that a number of the "links" were not functioning.

Coun. Nolan explained that the web-site was in the process of being redesigned, but he added that all Brielle Ordinances could be accessed by going to the Coded Systems site and clicking Brielle.

There being no further questions, the meeting was adjourned at 8:10 pm on a motion by Coun. Shaak, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo.
