Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports. Councilmen Visceglia & Gorham had no reports. Councilman Shaak reminded the public that curb-side brush collection has ended. He also advised that the street sweeper will be in service all week throughout the Borough. The Borough shared services with Sea Girt for the use of this equipment and it had been out of service for a week due to repairs being made. Pothole repair was on-going.

Councilman Garruzzo cited the recent “Night Out Against Crime” and termed it a great success. He thanked the Police, Fire & First Aid for their participation and the Board of Recreation. He also praised the quality of the “hot dogs and burgers”.

Councilman Nolan informed the public that the Library was continuing its program on the use of I-Phones and I-Pads through August 26th. The annual Brielle Day Book Fair would be held beginning two days prior to the event.

Councilman Nolan cited the success of the Board of Recreation’s trip to Citi Field for the Mets vs. Phillies game and noted that Flag Football would begin on September 7th.

Councilman Gianforte having no report, Mayor Nicol opened the meeting to the public and recognized Janet Hendricks, 615 Leslie Avenue, who cited the continued presence of brush at the curb despite the August 1st deadline. She asked if summonses would be issued.

Mayor Nicol replied that warnings would be a first step as residents needed time to adjust to the change in procedure.

Ms. Hendricks asked how people were supposed to get rid of yard waste and if Council had considered a collection schedule more in keeping with resident’s needs.

Councilman Shaak advised that Council was anticipating a more flexible schedule for implementation in 2015. A seven month rotation for leaf and brush collection and five months of no pick-up, but the plan was still being evolved. Meantime, brush could be taken to the recycling center.

Terri Lapoint, 500 Fisk Avenue, asked when the remediation work would be concluded at the Brielle Beach site. Mayor Nicol said it was “a work in progress”. Ms. Lapoint responded that while the DPW, in particular Michael Burger, had been hard at work at the site, the area still contained large quantities of mulch. She wanted to know when it would be removed and what the PAGE 67

Borough intended to do about the berm.

The Administrator explained that the Borough had submitted their response to the notice of violation to NJDEP and the Borough would comply with any NJDEP directive. Their direction would determine the fate of the berm.

Taylor LaTourette, 336 Fisk Avenue, asked if the funds set aside for improvements to the area would be used to defray the cost of remediation.

The Administrator said that the Borough anticipated performing any remediation “in-house” utilizing the DPW personnel and equipment. The funds referenced were under the control of the Board of Recreation and Environmental Commission and would be used for their intended purpose, improvements to the site, and not for remediation.

There being no further questions, the meeting was adjourned at 7:50 pm on a motion by Councilman Shaak, seconded by Councilman Nolan.
