MAYORS REPORT

Mayor David reported the Facilities Committee met on Monday night to interview construction manager firms for our new facility.  They interviewed two firms and decided on the Imperial Firm which was then recommended to the Governing Body.  The Governing Body agreed at last nights work session to move forward with the Imperial Firm as construction manager for the project.  The Union County Improvement Authority hires the construction manager with the Borough’s approval.  The next step is to hire an architect.  The Borough retains the right to approve any and all decisions on this project.

The Federal Aviation Administration has extended the comment period for the New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia Metropolitan Air Space Redesign Draft Environmental Impact Statement until July 1, 2006.  Anyone who is interested may call 1-866-347-5463. The FAA  is planning on changing the flight patterns again which would have a major impact on Union County.  This is an opportunity for people to voice their opinion on the change of flight patterns.

Mayor David thanked Schering-Plough and Jerry Ramos, through the efforts of the Beautification Committee,  for donating flowers for the planters in front of Borough Hall and along the Boulevard.  Mayor David also thanked Sue Ryan, Jonathan Lipke, Hedy Lipke and Daniel Ryan and Kathi Moschitta for planting  flowers in front of Borough Hall.  Students from David Brearley Middle School Honor Society, under the direction of teacher, Nancy Bechler, planted flowers along the Boulevard. 

Mayor David announced that the County has instituted two grant opportunities that relate to Recreation.  One of the grants is a matching grant program for recreation equipment and the other grant is a scholarship program which allows youths within our Community who need funding to participate in recreational programs.  The Scholarship Program is directed at low to moderate income families. Mayor David forwarded the grant information to David Brearley Middle/High School Guidance Department and Scott Pentz, our Recreation Director.

Mayor David advised that the governing Body tried to pass an Ordinance that dealt with  regulating illegal apartments.  At the second reading of the Ordinance there was a significant number of  landlords opposing this Ordinance.  The Governing Body agreed to go back to the drawing board and try to come up with an Ordinance that was more fair to the landlords but also addressed the Borough’s concerns. Over the last month we have found three illegal apartments in the Borough, one of which I have the police report in my hand.  Mayor David advised that this is a significant problem in the Borough.  For those  who do not think  this is an issue that needs to be addressed, this is a perfect example of why the Governing Body needs to do something about illegal apartments.

Mayor David  reported the Centennial Committee will have a meeting on June 26, 2006 at 7:00 PM at the Senior Citizen Building.  Our annual Fireworks will be held on July 2, 2006 at 9:00 PM and the rain date will be July 9, 2006. 

DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE

Councilman Clementi reported the 2006 Tax Sale was held on June 7, 2006.  There were eleven parcels up for auction.  They were all sold to outside bidders.  The Borough received revenues of $160,797.37. The auditors are done with the audit and the report will be completed next week.  The estimated third quarter tax bills will be sent out by July 1, 2006.  The Finance Committee and the Auditors will be meeting at the  end of the month when we find out about our Extraordinary Aid.    

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS

Councilman DeLuca, on behalf of the Governing Body, wished a speedy recovery to Dan Ryan, Superintendent of Public Works. Mr. Ryan underwent a painful operation and will be out for a couple of months.  Walter Krieck, Lead Foreman,  and the rest of the DPW have been doing a great job in Dan’s absence.  Ronald Friedman, our DPW driver/laborer, received his CDL license.  Last week the DPW weeded all the planters to allow the 8th grade volunteers to plant the flowers.  On June 2, 2006 we had an oil leak caused by a garbage can filled with oil that was dumped at 500 Washington Avenue.  Fortunately the oil did not go into the stormwater.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

Councilwomen Colosimo reported the Fishing Derby was a success.  On June 15, 2006, at 7:00 in Borough Hall there is going to be a special presentation on alcohol by the Drug Alliance. 

 

DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING, ZONING AND ORDINANCES

Councilman Soos reported the Borough is taking bids on June 26, 2006 for the reconstruction of North 17th Street and DiMario Park.  The contractor is starting to repair the roof on the Senior Citizen building.

DEPARTMENT OF FIRE, RECREATION, LIGHTING AND ECOLOGY

Councilman Corvelli reported  the Recreation Swim Night will be July 19th with a rain date of July 20th.  The Recreation Department is looking to replace some committee members who have dropped off.  We hired eight counselors for the Summer Parks Program which will start on June 26th.  The Recreation Committee is looking into sponsoring a bike ride or a 5K run for the Centennial.

The Fire Department responded to 58 incidents, utilized 676 man hours and they traveled 138.5 miles.  The Rescue Squad had 80 calls, utilized 194 man hours and they traveled 610 miles.  The Rescue Squad received a thank you letter and a  donation from  Connie Conrad and the family of Molly Ballorani.  Last May the Rescue Squad transported their mother to and from Union Hospital.  The EMT’s treated her kindly and gently and made this process a little easier for her and for us.

 DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE

Councilman Taylor reported that he attended the David Brearley High School Senior Award Program to award scholarships.  On behalf of the Mayor and the Pride In Kenilworth and also for the Recreation Committee he awarded scholarships to two Seniors. Councilman Taylor has a meeting with the Board of Education next Monday and a meeting with the Board of Health tomorrow.

MEETING OPENED TO THE PUBLIC

Robert Herbert, 363 Coolidge Ave. wanted to share information regarding a building that he is working on  that is similar to our new facility. The building he is working on is similar in that it contains a police station, borough hall, building dept. etc.. The building is 32,000 sq. foot and the completed project will be approximately 18 million dollars.  

Mayor David requested the name of the person handling the project.  Mr. Herbert responded that Michael Reese Construction from Fords, NJ. ,who are very familiar with state projects, won the bid for the project. Mr. Herbert did not recall the name of the Project Manager, but he will forward that information to the Mayor and Council on Monday as well as the name of the architect.

Mr. Herbert asked Councilman Soos to do a study on 14th Street near the Little League Field. Mr. Herbert reported that traffic is congested and maybe we need more yield signs to insure the safety of the children.

Councilwomen Colosimo advised that Lt. Grady has done a survey in that area and we cannot put a crosswalk there.  The Police Department does put yield signs out when children are in the area.

Mr. Herbert asked the Mayor and Council if they would like to attend the Little League Picnic on Saturday at Echo Lake Park at 2:00.

Joe Grimaldi, 74 North 14th Street wanted to know if the Town sprays for tics.  Mayor David referred the issue to Councilman Taylor, who is the liaison for the Health Department.  Councilman Taylor will speak to the Health Officer.

Councilman DeLuca advised that the County will most likely spray for tics.
