The winner of the Annual Snow Man Contest was present and John Devereux of the Board of Recreation presented Master Duncan Hathaway, of the Saint Catherine's School, with a snow cone machine for his "Snowman in a Hot Tub".

The Elementary School ICHOPE students were recognized, Ally Kaden & Joey Ostberg, and they thanked the Council for their support in fighting Holiday Hunger. The students had raised both food and money in numbers sufficient to win the Governor's Loving Cup. Councilwoman Scott interjected that it had been a privilege to attend the ceremony and added that Lieut. Governor, who presented the cup, was equally proud of the students for their efforts.

Next up was a joint presentation by the Board of Recreation Chairman John Devereux & 10K Race Committee Members Councilman Cort Gorham and Michael Gianforte to the Brielle Board of Education. Superintendent Carlson and Board Member Glenn Miller expressed their thanks.

Chief Palmer explained that Service Works Inc. would be installing the "Wave Wireless Instant Notification System" Panic Alarm switches would be placed in the School at strategic locations. By pressing the alarm the Police will be immediately summoned. The level of security at the school shall be increased.

Superintendent Christine Carlson added that Brielle was the first school district in the nation to be able to introduce this valuable system, and Mayor Nicol added that, why the total cost would be $15,096.00, $10,000.00 was a good start and he was confident that the balance needed could be raised.

Finally the Administrator asked to add a liquor license renewal to the consent agenda and he further advised that there would be a need for an Executive Session to address an emergent personnel matter.

There being no public comment the hearing was closed and the work session adjourned at 7:40 p.m. on a motion by Councilwoman Scott and seconded by Councilman Nolan.

Mayor Nicol then called for Committee Reports and recognized Councilwoman Scott who advised that Arbor Day had been a Special Day. The Day began at the School where a tree had been planted by the Shade Tree Commission and the Fourth Grade read various testimonials to the importance of trees. As always, Superintendent Carlson praised the children.

The assembly then marched to the Curtis House where a second tree, an American elm, was planted in Councilwoman Scott's honor and she received cards and attributes from the children. Page 41

She thanked the students, the Shade Tree Commission and the DPW for their work on the project.

Shredder Day had been success, but unlike past years when they left with half a load, this time the truck was filled by 11:30 am leaving Councilwoman Scott to explain the situation to many angry and disappointed residents, but in the end most people understood the situation and the fact that another shredder day was being held in a neighboring municipality made the situation palatable.

On the DPW front, leaf collection was ending and brush pick-up resumed. The ball fields had been made ready for the North-South competition and the Gazebo had been treated to new plantings and power-washing.

Bulk Pick-Up had come and gone, but the fact remains that outsiders have looted metal from trash piles. Scrap metal has value and the DPW anticipated initiating a metal scrap drive in the near future. County Recycling Newsletters were now available at the Borough Yard and Borough Hall. Residents were urged to pick-up a copy as they answered frequently asked questions such as how to get rid of latex paint.

The DPW had forty requests for trees and delivery should commence within a week of their arrival.

In closing, Councilwoman Scott cited her work with the Shore Community Alliance and was gratified to say that Manasquan High School works with the Police Departments of the Sending Districts and they had cited our Chief Palmer for his outstanding level of cooperation and leadership.

Councilman Nolan directed the public to the Library Web-Site where numerous summer programs were listed. He reminded them to support the North-South competition this weekend. The cost to participate was $15.00 and the proceeds would benefit the LaPointe Family.

Councilman Garruzzo reiterated Chief Palmer’s remarks on the "Wave Wireless Instant Notification System" and noted that several wireless panic alarm switches would be strategically installed in different locations throughout the school. The switches would only be pressed in dangerous or emergency situations and a signal would be directly sent to the police car on duty through the radio and computer. This ensured a much quicker response and enhanced safety for the students. Councilman Garruzzo was also gratified that Brielle was leading the way with this new technology as Superintendent Carlson had informed the Council that Brielle would be the first school system in the nation to employ it.

Councilman Shaak & Gorham having no reports, Councilman Visceglia informed the public that the award this evening to Realty Appraisal was an important step in addressing the loss of revenue and it should be complete by October 2013 for implementation by year end.

The Chair then opened the meeting to the public and Edith T. Nowels, 637 Holly Hill Road was recognized. Ms. Nowels bemoaned the recent loss of her son and former husband who she called Page 42

honorable men who sought to live up to the precepts of the Constitution. She then accused the Council of not living up to the code of ethics inherent in their oath of office. She said that honor must be earned and the elected officials had a responsibility to the community that they ignored by not supporting the planned candidate's night where she had hoped that residents could have had an opportunity to meet Councilman Gorham, Mr. Gianforte, Perk & Daidone.

There being no further comments, Councilman Shaak, seconded by Councilman Garruzzo then introduced Resolution 13-52 to enable an Executive Session.
Whereas, the Open Public Meetings Act permits the exclusion of the Public from a meeting in certain circumstances; and
Whereas, the Borough Council of the Borough of Brielle is of the opinion that such circumstances currently exist.
Now Therefore Be It Resolved, by the Borough Council of the Borough of Brielle, County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey, on June 25th, 2012, as follows:
