Correspondence: 

Report on the 5th Disease at Harding School was discussed.  There were 8 cases reported since the beginning of the year.  Health Officer Ferraioli stated the children were usually very young.

The letter to Pat & Rose Guida was discussed.  Health Officer Ferraioli stated the Guidas proposed to operate the former Sub City establishment; however, they were not complying with the necessary codes in order to open.  As of this date they have complied and the establishment is open for business. 

 

New Business:

Health Officer Ferraioli discussed the ordinance process.  President Moscaritolo asked Liaison DeLuca how to remedy the situation.  Liaison DeLuca stated the Board and Hedy Lipke should co-ordinate on the sequential numbers.

The Board recognized Borough Attorney Fruchter.  Borough Attorney Fruchter stated the Board needs the chapter when an ordinance is amended. It also should have our section and enter the amendment as we see fit.  Borough Attorney Fruchter stated he would sit down with our Finance Officer to amend the present fee schedule. He also stated the State has passed a law that the bins such as Salvation Army be inspected.  Borough Attorney Fruchter stated it would be best if it were regulated by the Health Inspector, an inspection sticker would be issued and a State mandated small fee will be assessed.  

Health Officer Ferraioli inquired if the Board wanted to do the ordinance as a whole Board or as a committee and have the Borough Attorney then look it over.  President Moscaritolo suggested an Ordinance Committee be established with Finance Officer Forman, Commissioner Pentz, and Health Officer Ferraioli.

Health Officer Ferraioli briefly discussed the CDC Survey of Local Board of Health Governance.

Health Officer Ferraioli discussed the discharge of grease by Big Apple Pizzeria.  He received a call from the police reporting a spill at Big Apple Pizzeria.  Health Officer Ferraioli went to the establishment and found grease on the sidewalk and driveway.  Subsequent inspections reveal that the establishment had done this on several occasions. REHS Malinowski is presently issuing summons to the establishment. 

There was a brief discussion regarding the resignation from Commissioner Susan Kotch.

Old Business:

The sewer map was received from Liaison DeLuca.   It was then inspected and it was found that LaGriglia was the cause of the sewage problem reported by the DPW on 3/07/08.

The letter sent to A & P concerning sewer back-up was discussed.   A & P stated they had Analytical Company pump out their grease trap.  Health Officer Ferraioli requested a complete footprint of all the lines that are in that store, where they went and how they tied in to the grease trap.  He also requested the invoice on the pumping of the grease trap by Analytical.  

The Annual Health Fair was discussed.  Health Office Ferraioli suggested Union and Kenilworth have a combined health fair at Union Hospital.   President Moscaritolo stated the numbers are depleting and he also felt it would be good to promote Union Hospital this year. A motion was made by Commissioner DeSciscio to combine the Health Fairs.  The motion was not seconded. 

A date of September 20, 2008 was set for the Annual Health Fair.  A motion was made by Commissioner DeSciscio and seconded by Commissioner Pugliese to contact Schering Plough and set up the Annual Health Fair.  All in favor.
