MINUTES JANUARY 23rd, 2017 WORK SESSION START: 7:30 PM
PRESENT: MAYOR NICOL, COUNCILMEN GARRUZZO, GIANFORTE, GORHAM, ATTORNEY MONTENEGRO & ADMINISTRATOR NOLAN.
ABSENT: COUNCIL MEMBERS NOLAN, SHAAK & VISCEGLIA
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 had no formal report.
The Chair then, on behalf of the 10K Race Committee, presented checks to Brielle Fire Company #1, Brielle First Aid Squad and Brielle P.B.A., each in the amount of $2,000.00 in recognition of their on-going service to the community.
The Chair then recognized Eagle Scout candidate Forrest Smyth, who presented his concept plan for a “Frisbee Golf” course at Brielle Park. Mr. Smyth submitted a design for a 9-hole disk golf course. That would provide an inter-active recreational activity for all ages. The design included score cards and pars for each hole. The holes would have a concrete base and would be removable so as not to interfere with any other recreational activity. John Devereux of the Board of Recreation endorsed the project and noted that the proposed second hole was the only one that could interfere with the active playing surfaces at the park, but there was a plan to locate it in such a manner as to facilitate removal as needed. The Frisbees required were available at Walmart for approximately $12.00 to $15.00 per set, but the plan was to have a set available for users on-site. Council approved his project.
There being no questions from Council or from the public, there was no further discussion and the work session was adjourned at 7:45 pm on a motion by Councilman Gianforte seconded by Councilman Gorham.
