MINUTES JUNE 9th, 2014 WORK SESSION START: 7:30 PM

PRESENT: MAYOR NICOL, COUNCILMEN GARRUZZO, GIANFORTE, GORHAM, NOLAN, VISCEGLIA, ATTORNEY MONTENEGRO & ADMINISTRATOR NOLAN.

ABSENT: COUNCILMAN SHAAK

Mayor Nicol convened the work session in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act and recognized the Administrator, who advised Council that he had nothing to report. Police Commissioner Garruzzo then cited the attendance of Chief Michael Palmer and police officers, Detective Sergeant James Stewart and Sergeant Thomas McWilliams.

Councilman Garruzzo stated that Detective Sergeant Stewart had been hired in 1988 and served Brielle for twenty-five years in a variety of capacities from patrolman to Sergeant to Fire Arms Instructor and ultimately to Sergeant.

Sergeant McWilliams was hired in 1989 and he too served in a variety of positions starting as a patrolman, then becoming Brielle’s first D.A.R.E. Officer and then being promoted to Sergeant. Sergeant McWilliams also served as a Firearms Instructor.

In his capacity as Police Commissioner, Councilman Garruzzo presented both men with a “shadow box” to honor their years of service to Brielle.

Chief Palmer added that while he could cite all the cases the officers had been involved in over their respective careers, what truly distinguished them was their leadership. They had the respect of their colleagues, the public and their peers and this would be their legacy.

There being no further comment, work session was adjourned at 7:35 p.m. on a motion by Councilman Gianforte, seconded by Councilman Nolan.

Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Councilman Gianforte who noted that while his committee had met during the interval between meetings, he had no report at this time.

Councilman Nolan reminded the public that the Library would be closed on Saturday during the summer months effective June 14th. The Library would also be presenting a program on bugs and PAGE 47

insects on June 17th.

Councilman Nolan cited the third annual North vs. South competition and the North’s third consecutive victory. The event raised some $10,000 and a check in that amount had been presented to Stacy Greib at the Elementary School earlier this evening.

Councilman Garruzzo reported that May had been a busy month for the Police Department with seventeen motor vehicle accidents, four drug arrests (two for heroin and two for marijuana), ten warrant arrests, one DWI, one criminal mischief and two arrests for underage possession of alcohol.

Councilman Garruzzo added his praise for the two retiring Police Officers and cited their twenty-five years of service to the community. They had contributed to providing Brielle with a “great” department and he was pleased that the recent new hires were following in that tradition of service.

Councilman Gorham & Visceglia having no reports, the meeting was open to the public and the Chair recognized Terri Lapoint, 500 Fisk Avenue, who cited the use of the former Brielle Beach site as a transfer station where brush was converted to mulch causing an increase in traffic, the present of heavy construction vehicles and odors that were impacting on the resident’s quality of life.

While Ms. Lapoint had no issue with the presence of the police work-out facility and the kayak rack, the transfer station was intrusive and she ask to know how long this alleged “temporary facility” would be in operation.

Mayor Nicol offered that the operation had resulted from the Sandy Hurricane debris and it was found that the Borough could save upwards of $100,000 a year in tipping fees, travel time, and vehicle costs by using this method of dealing with brush. However, the Council was aware of the problem and was seeking alternatives.

Emily Bilotti, 211 Brielle Avenue, stated that the Brielle Web-Site referred to the area as a “park” and referenced a $55,000 grant intended for improvements. Ms. Bilotti also cited a statement by former Councilman George Sevastakis that “nothing” should be located in that area.

Richard H. Curry, 324 E. Magnolia Avenue, informed the Council that he had purchased his property because it was quiet and peaceful, now there was traffic, noise, odors, a dilapidated red house that should be demolished, a white house that was being rented out as a party house whose tenants included numerous intoxicated individuals, some underage, who sleep in the street and on the porches of residents. He termed the situation “intolerable” and sought relief; he also noted that a number of heavy trucks had carted off mulch earlier in the day and dragged mud and dirt throughout the local streets.


PAGE 48

Caitlin Morris, 517 Fisk Avenue, advised that many of the Borough Trucks taking brush to the site traveled at excessive speeds.

Nicholas Bilotti, 211 Brielle Avenue, reiterated the earlier complaints and added that the White House was a haven for drug dealers.

In summation, the local residents sought relief from the operation and wanted a date certain as to when it would be shut down. The Mayor stated that the matter had to be reviewed, but promised an answer by the next Council Meeting. Councilman Garruzzo added that the Police would immediately investigate the allegations concerning narcotics and Code Enforcement would address the rental issue and the derelict house.

The Chair then recognized Thomas Stuhrmann, 106 Ocean Avenue, who represented himself and Joyce Aloi, 108 Ocean Avenue, who shared a common drainage concern and asked for an investigation by the Borough Engineer. Ms. Aloi presented the Council with photographs in support their concerns. Council promised to address the matter.

There being no further comments the meeting was adjourned at 8:05 pm on a motion by Councilman Nolan, seconded by Councilman Garruzzo.
