Correspondence: 

The memo from Bob Herbert, Zoning Official, regarding 223 No. 9th Street was discussed.   This was the individual who was conducting a business in a residential zone.  She was selling puppies out of her residence.  The original address was Coolidge Drive.  Bob Herbert determined that she was in violation, a summons was issued and she went to court.  She then moved to 223 N. 9th Street.  She is conducting the same business at the new address.  Mr. Herbert was again involved. Mr. Herbert stated she will be moving as of Friday, February 12th.   She has not moved as of this date.  Health Officer Ferraioli stated that if she moves into a commercial area than he can take action against her.

New Business:

The candidates for REHS position were discussed in Executive Session.

The 2010 Health Fair was discussed.   Merck has acquired Schering-Plough and Health Officer Ferraioli stated our contact person, Joe Starkey, is no longer there.  Health Officer Ferraioli also stated we may have to find a new venue for the health fair.  He suggested the school but that we would have to make sure there were no conflicts with their scheduling.   Liaison Klinder stated the library may have a contact person for Merck and it was suggested that Health Officer Ferraioli contact the library director.

Old Business:  

Health Officer Ferraioli stated the Rabies Clinic is set for February 28th at the Fire Department from 1 – 3pm.    The clinic will be open to everyone; however, dogs and cats are the only animals that will be inoculated.

Commissioners Report: 

Commissioner Forman stated he and Health Officer Ferraioli met with the Borough Finance Committee on January 27th.   At that time, they were asked to explore how Kenilworth Emergency Volunteer Services could get some funding.  Some facilities have been overusing their services.  Health Officer Ferraioli sent the Board Members a memo regarding the situation and his findings.  Kenilworth’s Emergency Medical Services can enter into an Agreement with the facilities to set a fee for services rendered to the facility which does not itself provide a medical emergency response and transportation.  The Board agreed the findings should be presented to the Borough Council.
