Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Coun. Scott who advised the public that "Shredder Day" would be held on Saturday, April 23rd, 2011. Coun. Scott had hoped to hold the event in May, but due to an increase in popularity, it was difficult to get a vendor who was available in May.

The Councilwoman noted that, this year, Manasquan residents were invited to participate as, after an initial massive response, the 2010 event saw only half of the paper recycling trailer being filled.

Coun. Nolan advised that Mr. & Mrs. Jones of Brielle had qualified as New Jersey Life Reading Champions. He also noted that the Baby Sitter Class had been a great success and another session was in the offering.

Coun. Nolan also noted that sign-ups for tennis lessons were being held from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Curtis House.
Coun. Nolan also thanked James Langenberger for his M.R.H.C. #1 report and he praised that agency for its on-going work in the field of public health.
Coun. Garruzzo informed the public that the installation of traffic enforcement camera had been investigated. The camera required approval by NJDOT and this approval was conditioned upon the applicants being able to demonstrate a history of serious motor vehicle crash incidents at the proposed locations.
Regarding a 19% decrease in summonses issued in 2010, the Chief advised that an officer was in the Police Academy for a period of six months and his absence had impacted on overall statistics.
Coun. Shaak, pointed out for the public's benefit that the proposed Code Red-Reverse 911 program was slated for implementation by the end of May; he cited the program being recently employed in Hawaii and the Western Coastal State after the unfortunate events in Japan.
Colin. Shaak added that he was continuing to work with the Code Enforcement Officer to resolve the on-going violations at the Brielle Motor Court.
Coun. Gorham & Visceglia having no reports, the Chair recognized Keith McEligot,615 Bradley Avenue, who asked Coun. Scott how outsiders were prevented from disposing of paper on shredder day?
Coun. Scott offered that while, during the initial day, trucks from business sources had to be turned away, she did not anticipate that kind of response on April 23'1. However, she felt that small local business could be accommodated and she reminded the public that a full trailer added to the weight and that benefited Brielle in the tonnage grant submittal.
In closing she added that the best course of action was to "play it by ear', but overall she believed that the bulk of the material would originate in Brielle & Manasquan and overall, it was a worthwhile project that benefited everyone. "All come out ahead", she noted.

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