Correspondence: 

 

President Moscaritolo introduced the Resolution from Mayor and Council appointing new Board Member, Adeena Lee.

Letters of acknowledgement to former Board Members Judy DeSiscio, Dr. Sean Kaufman, and Marie Condo for their service were introduced by Health Officer Ferraioli.

New Business:

The Municipal Rabies Clinic was discussed.  The State has decided to eliminate all rabies programs where the residents of the town can bring their dog to their vet to have them vaccinated and then the town submits the bill and reimburses the vet.  The state feels it is more of a problem to handle the vets than it would for each municipality to have their own clinic.  The state will still supply the free vaccine, free syringes and books only if the town has a dated clinic (1 to 3 a yr.)  If the town keeps the rabies program as is; the state will not supply the vaccine to the town.  This must be set up by July 1st.

The DPW have been having problems with grease build up in that line that comes down 26th Street into the Boulevard and into Market Street.  It was believed that it was coming from LaGriglia; however, we surveyed the area and the strip mall empties their sewage in the back onto Jefferson Avenue.   We have had problems with Big Apple Pizzeria previously. REHS Grady did the survey.  Health Officer Ferraioli has instructed REHS Grady to issue NOV’s to LaGriglia, Big Apple Pizzeria, and I Love Bagels.  The Health Department may be doing more investigations.

 

Every year we are required by the State to put together an annual report.  Part of the annual report is to put together a Board of Health Organizational Chart and register the Board of Health.  Health Officer Ferraioli requested the Board approve the registration and organizational chart.  

A motion was then made by Commissioner Forman and seconded by Commissioner Pugliese to approve the Registration and Organizational Chart.  Motion carried on roll call as follows:

                                    Randy Moscaritolo                 AYE                                                                                                    Dr. Jerome Forman                   “

Carla Gabriel                             “

                                    Susan   Ryan                              “

                                    Trudy Neuhauser                      “

                                    Jeanine Pentz                            “

                                    Dr. Pugliese                               “

 

Old Business:  

Health Officer Ferraioli inquired as to whether the Board wished to address the contracts now or wait until the Board knows where the budget stands.  The contracts are Township of Union, Union CHC, TB/UMDNJ , TB/CHCV, STD/Elizabeth – all thru Union.  The Board requested the contracts be tabled.   President Moscaritolo requested the Board make a motion to either accept or table the contract until the Board finds out more about the budget.

A motion was then made by Commissioner Neuhauser and seconded by Commissioner Pugliese to table the approval of the contracts.  Motion carried on roll call as follows:

                                    Dr. Jerome Forman                   “

Carla Gabriel                             “
