Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Councilwoman Scott who advised the public that the enabling resolutions for the Recycling Grant and Clean Communities were precursors to an application process that would culminate in July. Meantime, the Coordinator was finalizing the tonnage submissions with the commercial contributors, some of whom were delinquent in providing the required data.

Mulch & Wood Chips were still available and would be delivered by the DPW to Brielle Residents. Those who lived outside the Borough were free to help themselves. The Councilwoman also noted that Leaf Collection would resume on April 1st.

Councilwoman Scott, along with Mayor Nicol and Councilman Garruzzo had attended the ICHOPE Program at the school where Governor Christie's office, in the person of Lieutenant Governor Guadagno, recognized the Elementary School's efforts to fight hunger.

In closing, Councilwoman Scott focused on the South Monmouth Alliance on-going effort to make parents aware of the problem of teenage drinking and cited their "Parents Who Host, Lose the Most" program as just one example of that effort.

Councilman Nolan advised that Dodge Ball sign-ups were March 21st, the Easter egg hunt the 23rd and on March 24th Rick Trimble would begin Baseball Camp for the ten and under age group.

The Library would hold a class on digital photography on April 9th and a number of the Trustees had contributed money for the purchase of a Baby Grand Piano.

Councilman Garruzzo reminded the public that the Boy Scouts Spaghetti & Meatball Dinner would be held on March 23rd, between 4:00 & 7:00 pm at Brielle Fire House.

Councilman Shaak noted Councilwoman Scott's decision not to seek another term of office after thirty years of service and he cited some of her myriad contributions to the Borough such as the Recycling Program, the Gateway, and all the various endeavors to which she brought such energy and commitment that success was guaranteed.

Councilman Scott was gratified adding that praise from a colleague always had special meaning.

Council Gorham & Visceglia having no reports, the meeting was open to the public and Edith T, Nowels, 637 Holly Hill Drive, was recognized.

Ms. Nowels cited a recent discussion with a number of Freeholders regarding debris from Hurricane Sandy in the Old Bridge Road right-of-way. Their response had been prompt, but a Page 22

half measure as the sight-line was still blocked.

Mayor Nicol stated that he too had discussed this matter with the Freeholders and while there was some concern that part of the roadway was state owned property, it was clear that the area in question was on the county road. Action had been promised and the Mayor advised that he would again speak with the Freeholders. The Mayor added that, if nothing happened, Ms. Nowels should notify him within a few days.

The Chair then recognized Mr. Martin McHugh, New Jersey Field Representative for the "Conservation Fund" a group that combines its passion for conservation with recognition of the entrepreneurial spirit that seeks an innovation joint partner approach between the private and public sectors to reserve national parks, national areas, historic battlefields and even simple getaways. Since 1985, the Fund has been involved in over 2,000 projects and preserved more than 7 million acres.

The Fund is currently working with the Borough of Manasquan on a project that shall address flooding at Roberts Swamp Brook and the Glimmer Glass. As both bodies of water also serve as boundary points for Brielle; it appeared that a joint venture was both feasible and necessary. Mr. McHugh was here tonight to initiate such a partnership. The Conservation Fund was seeking a grant from the Dodge Foundation for planning purposes that would ultimately seek federal funds for implementation.

Council voiced their interest in the concept and Mr. McHugh noted that a detailed presentation would be made at 3:00 pm at Senator Singer's Office. Assemblymen Kean & Rible would also be in attendance.

There being no further public comment the meeting was adjourned at 7:53 pm on a motion by Councilman Shaak seconded by Councilman Nolan.
