Resolution No.:16-48-D
Date: May 23rd, 2016

Resolution of the Borough of Brielle

Whereas, such an agreement currently exists, dated October 13th, 2014, but both parties are of the opinion that the current agreement is in need of amendment, and

Whereas, both parties desire to continue to maintain certain services, such as joint capital expenditures, snow removal, the initial opening of athletic fields, and the provision of certain custodial services, since it is agreed that such services provide a mutual benefit and are a more cost effective means of expending public funds.

Now Therefore Be It Resolved, that effective July 1st, 2016, the Board of Education will charge the Borough of Brielle, an annual fee of $7,500.00 for the provision of custodial services at the Curtis House and at the Municipal Library.

The Borough of Brielle shall continue to provide snow removal for the school grounds at no cost and shall prepare the athletic fields for utilization on a seasonal basis. The Board of Education shall reimburse the Borough for any materials required in the preparation of said athletic fields.
The Borough shall no longer provide any lawn maintenance services on school grounds.

Be It Further Resolved, that the Mayor & Municipal Clerk are hereby authorized to execute this amendment to the original agreement and this revised agreement shall take effective on July 1st, 2016.
