Following a moment of silent prayer, a salute to the flag and a roll call, the Minutes of the June 25th, 2012 were approved on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Visceglia; all aye; no nays. Passed.

Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan, introduced Resolution 12-71 For Passage of the Consent Agenda.

Resolution:
A. (see insertion).

Motion:
Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Nolan, Scott, & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed. (Note: In reply to an inquiry by William Brannick, 805 Schoolhouse Road, the administrator explained that the new program was already used by the majority of Monmouth County municipalities, was more user friendly and best of all cheaper.)

Coun. Visceglia, seconded by Coun. Garruzzo, introduced Resolution 12-72 for Payment of Bills. Be It Resolved, that the following bills be paid, and that the Mayor or President of Council be authorized to draw orders on the Chief Finance Officer for payment of the bills of July 9th, 2012, as reviewed by the Finance Committee and as listed on the Resolution and the Computer Bill List amended thereto. Vote: Coun. Garruzzo, Nolan, Scott & Visceglia; all aye. No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol called for committee reports and recognized Coun. Scott who had no report.

Coun. Nolan advised that the Board of Recreation trip to Yankee Stadium (Yankees vs. Seattle) was scheduled for August 4th and approximately fifteen tickets were left. Interested parties should contact John Devereux.

Coun. Garruzzo informed the public of the June Police Statistical report. He cited 436 cases opened, 16 adult arrests, 16 first aid calls, 12 motor vehicle accidents and 14 alarm calls. He praised the Public Safety Services for their efforts during a busy month.

Coun. Visceglia having no report, the meeting was open to public comment.

Carol Stark, 1013 Riverview Drive, was recognized and she asked why the council had not utilized the reverse 911 or the web site to alert the public during the recent water crisis in Monmouth County.

Mayor Nicol explained that since there was an expense in using the 911 system and the number of inquiries regarding the issue had been minimal; it did not seem necessary to use 911. He also noted that Brielle was not impacted as Brielle has its own utility. The water had been tested, as it is every day at 8:45am and found portable. The Mayor did concede that Ms. Stark’s criticism of the failure to use the web site had some validity.

Janet Hendricks, 615 Leslie Avenue asked why the information on the water usage had not been posted on the reader board and why no one from the Borough used a bullhorn and conveyed the information to the
public street by street as Coun. Shaak had done during a hurricane when residents were told to move their vehicles to high ground.

The Mayor advised that the use of the reader board had merit.

Ms. Mary K Roberts, 1002 Forrest Road asked why the system had not been used during the recent suspected child abduction. She noted that her husband had posed the question at the prior council meeting, but she continued to have a genuine concern over the safety of the children. Her son had been playing tennis in the area where the alleged abduction was believed to have taken place just at the same time. She added that 911 had been used to alert residents about car burglaries so why not an alleged abduction. Ms. Roberts believed that we cannot be too overzealous when the safety of children is at issue.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 p.m. on a motion by Coun. Garruzzo, seconded by Coun. Nolan.
Approved: July 23rd, 2012.
