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

ABSENT: NONE.

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.

Mayor Nicol then asked Coun. Garruzzo to read and present the following Proclamation re: Brielle Sports Club


Whereas, the Brielle Sports Club has installed a state of the art energy system that utilizes module panels on the roof of their building, and

Whereas, these panels shall offset their energy costs by 20%, and

Whereas, it is both fitting and proper for a municipality to recognize a local business that is making an effort to save energy and thereby ultimately benefiting the residents of the Borough of Brielle, the State of New Jersey, and the people of this great nation, and

Whereas, such an endeavor is worthy of recognition.

Now Therefore Be It Resolved, that December 13, 2010 is hereby proclaimed as Brielle Sports Club Day in the Borough of Brielle and all residents are urged to give recognition to the Sports Club for taking a leading role in the provision of an energy efficient system that hopefully will encourage other members of the business community to mirror their behavior and help our nation limit its dependence on outside sources of energy.

There being no further comments the work session was adjourned at 7:32 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan.

Mayor Nicol then announced that the time had arrived a hearing and further consideration of "AN ORDINANCE TO AMEND AND SUPPLEMENT ORDINANCE NO. 1001 "AN ORDINANCE FIXING THE SALARIES & COMPENSATIONS OF THE VARIOUS OFFICERS & EMPLOYEES OF THE BOROUGH OF BRIELLE".

The hearing was opened on a motion by Coun. Nolan, seconded by Coun. Scott.

The Administrator explained that the ordinance established the salary ranges that authorized the implementation of the 2011 collective bargaining and employment agreements; he added that one of the numbers was a typo and should be an 8 not a 5, but the change was not substantive and the agreement clearly contained the correct number.

There being no public comment the hearing was closed on a motion by Coun. Nolan, seconded by Coun. Shaak.

Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan, introduced Resolution 10-90 for passage and adoption on second and final reading. Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Gorham, Nolan, Scott, Shaak & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Coun. Scott who reminded the public that Leaf Collection ended on December 15th and Brush Collection resumed. She also requested that the public remove potted plants from their plastic containers as the plants were organic and could be composted, the containers were not.

Coun. Scott also thanked the Brielle Elementary School Student Council for their leaf racking program that benefitted both senior citizens and the handicapped. She noted that the participants were polite and efficient and termed their efforts "commendable".

Coun. Scott also thanked the Bayberry Garden Club and the Woman's Club for decorating Curtis House for the Holidays; she also thanked Mr. Cowley, who decorated the Brielle Christmas Tree for providing the wreaths at Curtis House for no charge.

Coun. Scott also voiced her praise for the new "Community Band" the nucleus of which came from the Elementary School and included students from the 2rd grade to High School, but was also opened to adults. The band performed at the Church in Brielle, although not affiliated with that organization, and their first performance had been a success

In conclusion, Coun. Scott advised the public of her on-going work with the South Monmouth Community Alliance and thanked the public for their support of the Teen Center, adding that the building was now opened, but needed furniture and video games.

While partly funded through tax dollars from the participating communities, much of the revenue came from drug testing and enabled the Alliance to present a menu of programs that strove to enlighten local youth to the danger of drug and alcohol abuse.

Coun. Nolan praised the Board of Recreation and the Brielle Fire Company, Library & School for their support, in making the Christmas Tree Lighting another great community event. In fact this December lighting was the largest ever.

Coun. Nolan also noted the success of the annual New York City Bus Trip, the Biddy Basketball Program, and he thanked the Boy Scouts for replacing the fence around the "Tot Lot" at Brielle Park.

Turning to the Library, Coun. Nolan noted that the annual fund raiser letter had been mailed, but due to an error the request letter was not included in the envelope. He added that the letter could be found at the Library Web-Site.

Among other scheduled events were the Children's Party on December 14th, a screening of ELF on the 22nd and a session of the Baby Sitters Club on the 29th that included CPR training. The session would last from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm and the cost was $65.00.

In closing Coun. Nolan wished everyone a Happy Healthy Holiday. His sentiments were echoed by Coun. Garruzzo, who also passed on a missive from Chief Palmer reminding the public to be careful during this season of increased traffic.

Coun. Shaak, Gorham & Visceglia had no reports but they also extended holiday greetings to the public.

Mayor Nicol opened the meeting to the public and William Brannick 805 School House Road was recognized. Mr. Brannick noted that the PERS Web-Site indicated that Code Enforcement Officer James Langenberger was retiring as of December 31st. He asked if the position would be advertised.

The Administrator explained that pension law permitted an individual to make up to $15,000 a year after retirement. Mr. Langenberger would retire, but return as of February 1st. During January the position would be covered by a member of the DPW.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:55 pm on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan.
