With regard to the Bayview Drive reconstruction project, Mr. Groon reported that it will be moved to the 2012 Capital Plan discussion.

 

A request was made that the Commission salary levels be reviewed and a recommendation made for the next administration after the next election in light of the new rules and limitations imposed by the new State statutes. In conjunction with that proposal, the Clerk reported with regard to discussions to move the municipal election to November, that pursuant to the “Non-Partisan Act,” any referendum on the matter would be non-binding. Additionally, the statutory authority gives the governing body the ability to adopt an ordinance. Should an ordinance be adopted, the present administration would effectively have their terms extended to November of 2013 as opposed to May 2013. A question was asked if the candidates for the municipal election would “go into columns” on a general election ballot. The response was that there would be a separation and the Borough would not lose the non-partisan status. The Clerk indicated that the Borough’s cost for a municipal election every four years would be in the vicinity of $17,000 to $20,000. If the election were to be moved to the general election, the County would absorb most of those costs. The question was asked as to the percentage of voter turn-out for the municipal election in May versus a November general election.

The Clerk responded that it is a far better turn-out than the June primary, and that the General Election and Municipal Election turn-outs are equally good. The Solicitor inquired as to which Cape May County municipalities have changed their elections to November. The response was that Sea Isle City changed their election to November, and that perhaps Cape May Point as well. 

 

It was reported that information was being put together regarding combining the Planning and Zoning Boards and would be forthcoming.

 

Concerning the Rambler Road Park Project, the Engineer reported that he had received positive comments from the DEP and the Borough should have the permit in the near future.

 

Mr. Groon encouraged everyone to closely review the 2012 capital plan since a final determination would have to be made at the first meeting in July 2011 in order to have the plan finalized before the CFO retires.

 

With regard to the Cresse Avenue storm drainage project, the Clerk reported that he had circulated to the governing body materials regarding that project, including potential costs. He added that the governing body would have to authorize the grant coordinator appointment at the July 6, 2011 meeting. Additionally, the full scope of project would have to be determined in order to be included in the 2012 capital plan. The Engineer indicated that the grant would require a 15% match by the Borough.

 

It was reported that the Public Works Department is working on putting benches on the fishing pier and they have researched different materials.

 

The Clerk and Mrs. Gould reported that the hiring committee has narrowed the search for the CFO position to five candidates, and interviews had been scheduled for those candidates on June 23, 24 and 27, 2011. After those interviews, a recommended course of action will be made to the full governing body.

 

There being no public comments, and no further matters for discussion, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mrs. Gould, that the meeting be adjourned.
