Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Nolan, Scott, Shaak & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed.
The Mayor then called for committee reports and recognized Coun. Scott who cited the Shore Community Alliances on-going efforts against drug and alcoholic abuse, and noted the new problem of bath salts. The Alliance was also conscious of the abuse of prescription medications and they had recently hosted luncheons in other local communities to bring attention to the problem. Although the Brielle Police did offer a program for the disposal of unwanted or expired prescriptions, Coun. Scott intended to suggest this new tool to Chief Palmer in furtherance of their efforts.
Coun. Scott had been pleased by recent Earth Day activities and reminded the public that the annual "Arbor Day" celebration would be held at the School on April 29th at 10:0 am. The Bayberry Garden Club had donated a Kentucky Coffee Tree for planting by the Fourth Grade Class.
Coun. Scott then cited her recent visit to the Ocean County Recycling Facility in Lakewood where a "single stream" approach to recycling was being effectively pursued. Materials were lifted by fork-lifts and front end loaders and placed on belts that saw pickers remove some material, but the bulk of the waste ended up in one container. The system was operated by Waste management who had to guarantee that only 5% of the material had to be land filled.
While the system appeared to be promising, it did require the use, by homeowners, of a ninety gallon tooter. In a hilly area such as Brielle this could be a disincentive to residents bringing recyclables to the curb.
The matter was under study in Monmouth County and a demonstration project would begin in June in Wall Township.
Coun. Scott added that the biggest problem faced by Waste Management was the present of bottle caps and plastic bags as they clogged the belts and delayed the operation.
Coun. Scott reminded the public that May 16th through 20th was Clean-up week. Materials should not be placed at the curb prior to the weekend and as to construction materials, only those from home improvement projects that is to say non-commercial would be collected.
Coun. Scott also noted that she was working with Coun. Shaak to try and get the State to replace dead and dying trees along Route #35.
Shredder Day had been successful although only half the truck was filled, a condition Coun. Scott attributed to a combination of inclement weather and the Easter Holiday. One hundred and six cars had made drop-offs of which sixty were from Brielle, three from Wall and forty-three from Manasquan. The latter group was extremely grateful for being afforded to opportunity.
Coun. Nolan cited the success of the annual Easter Egg Hunt and he reminded the public of the benefit for Justin Condoluci scheduled for June 5th between 9 am and 12 noon. The event would feature sporting contests between Brielle North & South that included basketball and a tug-of-war.
Coun. Nolan also noted that the Brielle Library had passes to the Museum of Natural History in New York City that could be picked up and utilized by card carrying members of the Brielle Library.
Coun. Garruzzo announced that the Brielle Police Department will participate in the DEA Prescription Drug Operation on Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. The program is a great opportunity for residents to dispose of unused or unnecessary prescriptions in their households.
Neither Coun. Shaak or Visceglia having reports, the Chair opened the meeting to the public and recognized David Suhnuck, who was seeking to represent the Libertarian Party in the 30th District.
Page 49 25th April 2011
Mr. Suhnuck noted that his party opposed state mandates, COAH, and government intervention in local affairs. He cited the state income tax of one example that, in addition to being a disincentive to the entrepreneurial spirit, also saw Brielle Taxpayers sent 18 million dollars in income tax revenue to Trenton and receive $92,000 in return. He called for the return of power to the people and urged interested parties to view his blog "Common Sense".
There being no further comments the meeting was adjourned at 7:54 pm on a motion by Coun. Shaak, seconded by Coun. Nolan.
