(Note: Due to an error by the municipal clerk, the agenda made provision for a public hearing on an ordinance that was only scheduled to be introduced. Edward PAGE 19

Burke, 409 Union Lane, was nevertheless recognized and permitted to speak. Mr. Burke cited the fact that the elevated water tank project had a component part, the replacement of the Union Lane Water Main. He was concerned about the restoration of the pavement to its original condition and he asked that the Engineer look into the matter. Mr. Burke was appalled by the pavement restoration currently being performed by New Jersey Natural Gas and feared the worst. Mayor Nicol advised that the Engineer would stay on top of the matter, but he reminded Mr. Burke that, during the on-going construction, the area would be patched, full restoration would come at the end of the project. Mayor Nicol further observed that the Borough, in conjunction with Sea Girt, was entertaining an inter-local approach to using hot patch to address the myriad of potholes that resulted from the recent frigid weather. Unfortunately, hot patch was unavailable until the asphalt plants resumed production.)

Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Councilman Visceglia who had no formal report.

Councilman Gorham having no report, Councilman Shaak advised that the Borough, through Monmouth County, had received 15 tons of salt on Friday. Salt has arrived at Port Newark and hopefully the salt will be distributed and normal deliveries will resume. Councilman Shaak added that sewer manholes are being raised to facilitate snow plowing.

Councilman Garruzzo having no report, Councilman Nolan advised the public that the fixed patron counter was once again operational at the Library and he was amazed to see that the average daily usage was 156. Councilman Nolan also reminded the public of the Board of Recreation’s “Coaches Game” Brielle vs. Manasquan on February 28th @ 7:00 pm, the three on three tournaments, the success of the Camel Back Ski Trip and a reminder that the deadline for entries in the annual Snow Man Contest was March 15th.

Councilman Gianforte had no report, but cited his attendance at the ICHOPE event at the Brielle Elementary School pointing out that it was the second year in a row that the students had won the Governor’s Cup for their efforts to eliminate hunger.

Mayor Nicol had also attended the observance, along with Councilman Nolan, and added his praise to the group who had raised $5,000 along with hundreds of pounds of can goods for the Monmouth County Food Bank.

The meeting was opened to the public and Edward Burke, 409 Union Lane, advised Council that he had placed a railroad tie at the curb of his Melrose Avenue property months ago and it has yet to be picked up; he added that everybody pays high taxes, but residents on the side streets are ignored. Council promised to have DPW response in the morning.

There being no further public comment the meeting was adjourned at 7:49 p.m. on a motion by Councilman Garruzzo, seconded by Councilman Gorham.
