The annual rabies clinic had also been held at the Fire House and 82 dogs and 26 cats were vaccinated.

Councilman Garruzzo provided the 2015 Police Year End Report and cited the Accreditation Program that updates and professionalizes all policies and procedures and is endorsed by the MMJIF.

The K-9 Union, Enzo and his handler Patrolman Brian Stahl, have completed their training and secured the required certifications that have made them an effective part of the force. The unit has benefited from public support and generous donations.

The Marine Unit, has been reinstated thanks to donations and under the leadership of Patrolman Stephen Boyd, it issued over one hundred summonses and has had a positive effect on river traffic and the use of Nienstedt Island.

On December 29th, 2015, Detective Ryan Meixsell solved a series of burglaries, most notably on Linden Lane. His actions led to the arrest of Nicholas J. Tracy who was charged and is currently in the County Jail. Mr. Tracy is a suspect in a number of other burglaries and attempted burglaries as detailed in an excellent article in the Coast Star.

The 2015 police statistical reports shows 76 adult arrests, 3 juvenile arrests, 100 motor vehicle stops, 189 alarm calls and 255 First Aid Calls. In addition there were 16 domestic violence offenses. In closing Councilman Garruzzo also thanked the DPW for a job well done and noted that Stephen Speicher had been the recipient of the annual Pride of Brielle Award presented by the Chamber of Commerce.

The Mayor asked if Enzo had received his shots at the Fire House and Councilman Garruzzo noted that all of Enzo’s inoculations were up-to-date.

Councilman Shaak noted that Brielle had received 18 inches of snow and he cited the outstanding job of the DPW during the weekend storm and he advised the public that storm drains are currently being cleared of snow in anticipation of large amounts of melting snow. The Superintendent wished to thank the Fire Department for digging out fire hydrants and to his staff for staying the course during an arduous snow event that kept them up throughout the weekend.

Councilman Gianforte interjected the County OEM was gathering data on funds expended during the storm in the event of a declaration of Emergency.

Councilman Garruzzo advised that the Police Chief Palmer had already filed the preliminary paperwork and Councilman Shaak added that Superintendent McArthur was participating in that process.

Councilmen Gorham & Visceglia had no reports.

The meeting was opened to the public and Jim Stetson, 810 Rathjen Road, added his voice in praise of the Department of Public Works. He and his wife had also toured the area and Brielle had gone above and beyond in their response to the storm.

Mr. Stetson also suggested that residents be advised to actively participate in digging out fire hydrants via the Reverse 911 message system.

Mayor Nicol advised that such a request had been posted on the sign at Borough Hall and on Facebook, but he agreed that it was a good idea.

There being no further comment, the meeting was adjourned at 7:45 pm on a motion by Councilman Gianforte seconded by Councilman Gorham
