Acting Mayor Chuck Hauser read the following report:

The Facilities Committee met last Tuesday.  The agreement between the Union County Improvement Authority and the Borough has been approved and signed by both parties.  The committee is moving forward with plans for determining the location of the new public safety building,  auctioning off borough-owned land which will help finance the project and for hiring a project manager.

The Centennial Committee met on Monday night.  Specific plans to commemorate and celebrate the Borough’s Centennial next year are well under way.  Right now the major event will be a large parade followed by a community picnic on June 16, 2007.  Many other events are also being planned throughout 2007.  Next month will mark the first anniversary of Celebrate New Jersey Month, a  campaign to celebrate all things New Jersey.  Celebrate New Jersey is promoting a positive conversation about our Garden State.  Anyone who is interested can get more information at www.CelebrateNJ.org.

The New Jersey American Water Company is reminding everyone that the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has declared a drought watch.  Although a drought watch does not result in mandatory water restrictions it is important to have a clear understanding of the Procedures for declaring the three stages of a drought.  For more Information you can log on to www.njawater.com

I will be out of the State from May 26th through May 29th during this time Council President Fred Soos will be Acting Mayor.

 DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

Acting Councilperson Nicole Laudati read the following.

Last week the Finance Committee had a capital budget meeting. The projects were discussed and agreed upon at last nights work session with the Mayor and council. The following capital projects for 2006 will be as follows: Curbing for the Boulevard (phase 1 of 3 phases), Reconstruction of No. 17th Street (under a DOT grant), Reconstruction and street paving for Dorset Dr., Summit Avenue, South 25th street, the end of 12th Street & one third of Roosevelt Lane. Also the purchase of a new street sweeper & inspection of the sewer lines with a T.V. camera. Since we are waiting to see if we will be receiving Extraordinary Aid from the State, we will be sending estimated tax bills. A resolution will be submitted for the June meeting authorizing the issuance of estimated bills. The auditors are presently conducting an audit and all is going well. Our tax collections for the May quarter were at 98.73%. delinquent notices will be sent this week.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS

Acting Councilperson Megan Escamilla read the following report:

The men have been working on black top (pot-holes), cleaning and repairing catch basins, curbside brush pick-up and tree maintenance. They have also been repairing street signs, painting and making repairs to the building at DiMario Park while also landscaping all Borough parks and properties.  They recently removed debris from the creek on North 6th Street.

We received a quote from Lorco Petroleum Services to clean our above-ground gas and diesel tanks.  The cost for equipment and labor would be $340.00 and an additional $.65 per gallon for the disposal of water and tank bottom residue. We are still waiting for other estimates.

I would like to thank Duke Plungis, Michael McElroy, and James Lindeman of Westfield Sheet Metal for graciously volunteering their time and skills to install the roof on the shade structure at 9th Street Park.  They did a fabulous job and it is greatly appreciated.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

Acting  Councilperson Andrea Crincoli read the following report:

Police Chief Dowd advised that portable Police radios have been issued to the three schools in the Borough.  The radios have been issued by the County of Union through a Homeland Security Grant.  The administration in each school will now have a radio and will be able to contact the Kenilworth Police Department with the push of a button.  A meeting was recently held between the County Representative, Dr. Leschuk, Lieutenant Hannon and myself over  the issuance and use of these radios.  Hopefully, these radios will never be needed but will be available for an emergency, should one arise.

I have spoken to the Chief regarding his capital budget and I also received an update on our existing fire engines. The plans for DiMario Park have been drawn up and we are now in the bidding phase.  Our Summer Park Program is only a month away and we are expecting another great year.

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE

I attended the Board of Health meeting on May 18, 2006.  As you know, I am the liaison to the Board of Health, as well as the Library Board, Board of Local Assistance and the Board of Education.  During that meeting, The Board of Health tentatively scheduled the Michael Vitale Memorial Health Fair for September 16, 2006 on the campus of Schering-Plough.  I ask you all to mark that date on your calendars and make sure that you attend the health fair on that day, as there are many worth medical services provided to our residents. At that meeting the Board of Health also approved a new policy within the Borough for dealing with hazardous bodily fluid, such as blood or vomit, when they are encountered at our facilities or by our workers.  The members of the Board are in the process of purchasing the items that will be part of a clean-up kit that will be placed in a central location within all of our Borough’s Departments and buildings.   I anticipate that both the policy and the clean-up kits will be put into place soon after the June meeting.

REPORT OF ACTING BOROUGH ATTORNEY

As Borough Attorney, I am responsible for the legal needs of the Borough.  All day to day legal issues as well as overseeing legal matters that are forwarded to other law firms are my responsibility.

Just like the federal government and the state government have laws, municipalities have laws as well called ordinances.  As Borough Attorney, I  review, revise and prepare ordinances. Whenever the Council members and Mayor vote on a matter that is not an ordinance but still involves matters involving the Borough, it is memorialized in a written document called a resolution, which also involves the Borough Attorney. As Borough Attorney, I am an appointed official who gets voted in by the Mayor and Council.  I must take an oath upon  accepting the position.  The position is for a one-year period and can be renewed from year to year.

GENERAL BUSINESS

Councilman Corvelli thanked everyone for attending “Youth In Government Day”.  There was a problem with one of our easements in town and the DPW responded within one day and I would like to commend the DPW.

Councilwomen Colosimo congratulated the students for doing a fantastic job.

Councilman Soos thanked the students and they deserve a round of applause.  Special thanks to the acting Borough Clerk who had a lot of reading to do tonight.

Mayor David advised that the Borough was lucky to receive a $50,000.00 donation from Schering-Plough Corporation for the purchase of a new ambulance. Additionally, they have agreed to provide up to another $50,000.00 if the Borough could match that funding.  The Rescue Squad has kicked off a campaign to raise the additional $50,000.00.  When the letters come to your home for a donation for the Rescue Squad, please give for this worthy cause.

Mayor David also commended the students for an excellent job this evening.  He hopes that this has been a positive experience and down the road, after they have gone through the next level of education, they would consider volunteering for a committee or group and give some time back to whatever community they reside in or even consider running for public office.

No one from the public wished to speak.

Mayor David distributed the gavels to the students.
