Coun. Nolan observed that, while initially he felt that the division of the Borough into North & South for purposes of this fundraiser might have been divisive, in reality it brought the town together and he extended his deep appreciation to the Board of Recreation for all their efforts in this endeavor.
William Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road, asked who Mr. Jasman was and the Mayor explained that he was an Eagle Scout who had been presented with a plaque on June 7th.

Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Nolan, Scott, Shaak & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed.
Mayor Nicol then read the following Proclamations:
Whereas, the Borough of Brielle has been formed in compliance with applicable statutes, and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper for a municipal corporation to recognize the achievements of those who serve their community and their sister communities throughout Monmouth & Ocean Counties, and
Whereas, Honoree Chairman, David R. Chepauskas of Summit Financial Resources, has been selfless in his dedication to community service in general and to the American Cancer Society in particular, and
Whereas, David R. Chepauskas, shall be honored at the annual American Cancer Society Golf Classic to be held at the Manasquan River Golf Club on Monday, July 11th, 2011, and
Whereas, it is both fitting and proper to recognize such dedication and service.
Now, Therefore Be It Proclaimed, that July 11th, 2011 be designated as David R. Chepauskas Day in the Borough of Brielle.
Coun. Scott noted that the Borough had recently experienced a number of positive events that included the Union Landing Historical Society's Decoration Day Observance, the North-South Competition and Fundraiser, and the elevation of an Eagle Scout; all these events were indicative as to why people wanted to live in Brielle.
Turning to recycling, Coun. Scott cited a number of inquiries regarding the merits of Wall Township's single stream recycling vs. the double stream approach now employed in Brielle.
Coun. Scott provided a number of statistics that indicated a decrease in the amount of combined paper being recycled. This could be attributable to the increasing reduction in the size of newspapers and the modern tendency to favor the internet over a hard copy. Yet, while newspaper was down by 35%, overall mixed paper was up by 48%; it appeared that the Borough was on the right track. Coun. Scott did note that there was insufficient data as yet to ascertain the overall benefit of co-mingled paper collection, but the initial trend indicated a "break-even" result.
Coun. Scott also noted a 19% decrease in leaf recycling, but a 67% increase in brush. As of June, $10,000 had already been expended on brush removal. Regarding single stream recycling, the Councilwoman pointed out that the nearest facility that provided this service was in Lakewood and it charged a $25.00 per ton fee for separation. The Brielle method saw $120.00 per ton for bulky waste, $80.00 for mixed paper and $90.00 for newspaper. Another factor, often overlooked, was the fact that every ton recycled was one less ton being taken to the landfill at a cost of $65.00 per ton.
In addition, the move to single stream would require a capital expenditure on additional equipment and a revamping of the current collection schedule. The Borough would continue to monitor the situation and, with the return of former DPW Superintendent Burkhardt in July as Certified Recycling Coordinator, Coun. Scott hoped to increase the enforcement aspects of the Recycling Ordinance.
Coun. Nolan noted that the Brielle Library would be on a summer schedule from June through September 1st, but programs such as Yoga and the summer reading program would continue.
Turning to Recreation, again praised the Board of Recreation for the North/South Competition that was four months in the planning stages; he added that, although there was a late fee, enrollment in the Summer Recreation Program, was still going on.
Coun. Garruzzo informed the public that the Police had had a very busy May. There were 27 arrests that included 8 DWI,1 Burglary, I Theft, 3 Simple Assaults, 1 Possession of Marijuana, and 11 Warrants. four hundred & thirty five cases had been opened in May and, on May 22nd, three individuals were charged after a theft at Greico Beverage. They had absconded with beer kegs and then attempted to return them for the deposit.
Coun. Shaak & Visceglia having no reports, the Chair opened the meeting to the public and recognized Edward Burke of 409 Union Lane, who posed questions about the street sweeper and storm drain maintenance.
Council advised that an Inter-Local Agreement for shared use of a street sweeper was under consideration. The Administrator estimated six to eight weeks to reach a determination. He added that the Borough was obligated by NJDEP Regulations to maintain storm drains and he would investigate Mr. Burke's complaint regarding the drain on Melrose Place.
William Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road, questioned the fact that Coun. Shaak had abstained by the vote for the LOSAP Ordinance, but on a prior vote, Coun. Visceglia had not abstained.
The Administrator explained that Coun. Visceglia was not a member of the First Aid Squad, and it was his recollection that Coun. Visceglia had abstained on the LOSAP Ordinance that impacted the Fire Company.
There being no further comments, the meeting was adjourned at 8:10 pm on a motion by Coun. Shaak, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo.
