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

ABSENT: NONE

Following a moment of silent prayer, a salute to the flag and roll call, the Minutes of the May 22nd regular meeting were approved on a motion by Councilman Shaak seconded by Councilman Nolan; all aye; no nays. Passed

Councilman Garruzzo seconded by Councilman Nolan, introduced Resolution 17-58 for Passage of the Consent Agenda.

Vote: Councilmen Garruzzo, Gianforte, Gorham, Nolan, Shaak & Visceglia; all aye, No nays. Passed (Note: Councilman Garruzzo abstained on A, D, E, F & G. Councilman Gianforte abstained on E).

Councilman Visceglia seconded by Councilman Gorham introduced Resolution 17-59 for Payment of Bills. Be It Resolved, that the following bills be paid, and that the Mayor or President of Council be authorized to draw orders on the Chief Finance Officer for payment of the bills of June 12th, 2017, as reviewed by the Finance Committee and as listed on the Resolution and the Computer Bill List amended thereto. Vote: Councilmen Garruzzo, Gianforte, Gorham, Nolan, Shaak & Visceglia: all aye. No nays. Passed.

Mayor Nicol then called for committee reports and recognized Councilman Gianforte who had no report, but praised the North vs. South competition calling it a great event and adding that it made one think “thank God I live in Brielle”.

Councilman Nolan cited the June 13th Book Club Meeting at the Library, the June 20th & 22nd workshops on social security and on June 27th “Lifeguard Tells All” a primer on water safety.

Councilman Nolan added that the North/South event, after a rain delay, was an arduous, but fun filled event that raised over $10,000 for charity.

Councilman Garruzzo reminded the public to keep August 8th open for the annual “Night Out Against Crime” an event jointly sponsored by the Police and Board of Recreation. The event provided a fun-filled evening where residents could get to know their local police force.

Councilman Garruzzo also reminded the public not to leave their vehicles unlocked as there had been a rash of thefts in local communities and residents should be conscious that an unlocked door and any valuables from a lap top to loose change can create a target for criminals.

Councilman Shaak & Gorham having no reports, the meeting was open to the public and the Chair recognized Janice Hendricks, 615 Leslie Avenue, who voiced a concern over the recent noise ordinance and asked what the actual restrictions were.

Her question lead to an exchange with the Borough Attorney wherein he advised her that the hypothetical example she posed could not be addressed as each situation was unique and depended on the perception of the individual making the complaint.

The discussion made it clear that there was confusion over the noise ordinance and the nuisance ordinance.

Ms. Kologi, 3 S Tamarack Drive cited a weekend party where attendees at a 60th birthday party were subjected to a number of police visits in response to nuisance complaints from a neighbor. She feared this ordinance would create numerous calls, a waste of police manpower and impact the quality of life for residents.

Ms. Hendrick reminded Council that it was a summer resort town and noise was part of the environment.

Both Mayor Nicol and Councilman Shaak suggested that residents could always call the police when they had issues with their neighbors and the use of lawn mowers and leaf blowers was clearly permitted during the times established by ordinance.

The Council promised to monitor the situation and keep track of complaints.

John Jackson, Attorney for Waypoint 622, was recognized and he advised Council that he had a concern over the ordinance and a fear that such complaints could be used against his client insofar as an objector had requested restrictions to be placed on the Waypoint’s liquor license.

He noted that, contrary to the 2015 season, there was only one complaint in 2016 and it occurred during a test of the new sound system when the noise level of the 2015 season was replicated by a band called the Counterfeiters. His client believed that the problem had been addressed, but the new nuisance ordinance could be misused to create a perception of noise complaints.

Mr. Jackson stated that he would be in attendance at the next meeting and present his case against restrictions. He asked Council to keep an open mind.

The public portion was adjourned at 7:53 pm on a motion by Councilman Garruzzo seconded by Councilman Shaak.

Attorney Montenegro then announced that there would be a hearing on the license renewal of the Waypoint 622 Liquor License @ 7:30pm at Borough Hall on June 26th, 2017. Since both Mr. Jackson and the party requesting the imposition of restrictions, Thomas Stuhrmann were present, no further notice would be given.

There being no further comment the meeting was adjourned at 7:55pm on a motion by Councilman Gianforte seconded by Councilman Shaak.

WHEREAS, the NFIP maintains a significant role in providing financial protection against flood events to New Jersey residents; and
