Councilman Gianforte seconded by Councilman Gorham, introduced resolution 15-24 to authorize publication in the Coast Star for a hearing to be held at 7:30 pm, on February 23rd, 2015, at Borough Hall. Vote: Councilman Garruzzo, Gianforte, Gorham & Shaak; all aye No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol now called for Committee Reports and recognized Councilman Gianforte who had no report. Councilman Garruzzo and Councilman Gorham also had no reports.

Councilman Shaak thanked the public for their cooperation in keeping vehicles off the streets during the recent snow. Councilman Shaak noted that it was a public safety issue as white-outs can occur during plowing and vehicles might not be seen. This poses a threat to the safety of the DPW crews and can result in damage to the vehicle.

Councilman Shaak also cited the fact that the decorative street lamps were out along the north side of Higgins Avenue from Grieco Beverage to Highway #71. This resulted from a break in the underground power line and it would be addressed in the spring.

Mayor Nicol then opened the meeting to the public and recognized Sal Petrosino, 501 Magnolia Avenue, who inquired as to the availability of the Borough’s application to NJDEP? The Administrator advised that it was on-file in the Clerk’s Office and available for viewing during regular business hours.

Mr. Petrosino asked if it was the same form he’d received in the mail and if he had to contact NJDEP for a complete copy? The Administrator was unsure, but suggested that if NJDEP was contacted they likely had a copy that could be viewed on-line.

Mr. Petrosino also voiced a concern over a drainage condition in his area that he felt was posing a threat to his property; he added that he had communicated his concerns to the Borough by certified letter prior to the establishment of the existing dry well that he felt was inadequate. He noted that it was currently filled with debris and could not handle the flow from four corners, none of which had a storm drain.

Mayor Nicol advised that the Borough Engineer would review the situation and Councilman Gianforte noted that if a drainage system were to be installed NJDEP approval would be required as the storm water would be channeled into a waterway.

The meeting was then adjourned at 7:45 pm on a motion by Councilman Garruzzo seconded by Councilman Shaak.

Approved: February 23rd, 2015
