PRESENT: MAYOR NICOL, COUNCILMEN GARRUZZO, GIANFORTE, NOLAN, SHAAK & VISCEGLIA, ATTORNEY MONTENEGRO AND ADMINISTRATOR NOLAN

Mayor Nicol announced that any member of the public wishing to audio or video record a Council Meeting must give notice to the Borough Clerk prior to the meeting being recorded.

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.

Mayor Nicol then read a Proclamation, to honor retiring Monmouth County Clerk, M. Claire French, for her years of service to the government and the people of Monmouth County.

Whereas, the Borough of Brielle has been formed in compliance with the applicable statues, and

Whereas, it is fitting and proper for a municipal corporation to recognize the achievements of those who have contributed to the well-being of our society, and

Whereas, Claire French, during her years as a member of the Wall Township Governing Body, brought her skills as a communicator, acquired during her years as a freelance reporter for the Wall Herald, and as a Community Volunteer, to improve the government of the Township and the neighboring communities and

Whereas, in her eighteen years of service to the people of Monmouth County as their County Clerk she was instrumental in implementing innovative programs that took advantage of new advances in technology. Such improvements ranges from an electronic portal for recording property records electronically, to the introduction of a revolutionary software program for the recording of election results, and

Whereas, such achievements, and we would be remiss not to mention her dedication to the Republican Party, are indeed worthy of commemoration

Now Therefore Be Proclaimed, that May 26th, 2015 be designated as Claire French Day in the Borough of Brielle

Ms. French thanked the Governing Body and stated that it was an honor to be in Brielle. Ms. French spoke of her early life in Point Pleasant and the fact that one of her first jobs was as Bogan’s Basin. Ms. French praised the Council for their effective management and for having the foresight to be a participant in the Manasquan River Reservoir project twenty-five years ago.

Ms. French cited her 35 years as a public servant and added that she would continue to serve in a private capacity as a member of organizations such as the 200 Club, the Girl Scouts and through a PAC she created to submit candidates for office who shared her vision of public service.

She cited Mayor Nicol for his leadership, introduced Brielle Resident John Rowe to the Council, noting that he had run both her election campaign for County Clerk and Kim Guardiano’s for Sheriff; he was a master when it came to campaign management.

In closing she cited Borough Historian John Belding, whose exhibits at her offices in Freehold had made her and the people of Monmouth County aware of Brielle’s contributions to the history of Monmouth County.

There being no further comment, work session was adjourned at 7:39 p.m. on a motion by Councilman Gianforte seconded by Councilman Visceglia.
