Councilman Garruzzo cited Resolution 13-34-I and informed the public how important the proper disposal of unused or unwanted prescription drugs is and he urged them to avail themselves of the scheduled event on April 27th.

Councilmen Shaak & Visceglia having no report, the meeting was open to the public and the Chair recognized Janet Hendricks, 615 Leslie Avenue, who noted that she had yet to see the street sweeper in her area and the curfew signs promised for Carpenter's Park had yet to appear.

Patricia Summers, 104 Lake Avenue, thanked Council members Scott & Nolan for their attendance at the meeting of area residents and their effort to be of assistance to those impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Ms. Summers also thanked Janet & Jamie for their clean¬up efforts, along with Mary Lou Bolger.

Councilman Nolan replied that he had been digesting the information garnered at the public forum from the residents of Crescent, Green, Lake and Manasquan Avenues and he hoped to file a report on the topic within the week.

Ms. Hendricks informed the Council that she had worked to clean up the area and separated the trash from recyclables. However, contrary to her expectations the contract carter and not the DPW collected the bags and they simply tossed them in with regular trash. Her efforts had been for naught. Councilwoman Scott promised to investigate her concerns.

Mary Lou Bolger, 2 Water's Edge, presented photographs to the Council that challenged an earlier statement that conditions in her area were "back to normal" and she had written a letter to the Coast Star to bring that matter to the attention of the elected officials.

Ms. Bolger cited a wood pile on the Green Avenue Bridge, orange cones guard rails and palettes that she assumed belonged to Earle Asphalt, who was repaving the streets in that vicinity, paint cans that had spilled white paint on the curb and piles of debris on East Woodland and Magnolia Avenue. Ms. Bolger also noted that their residents in need such as an elderly couple whose deck had collapsed and she felt that the Governing Body such seek out charitable and volunteer organizations that could assist them.

There being no further comments, the meeting was adjourned at 8:30 pm on a motion by Councilman Visceglia, seconded by Councilman Shaak.
