The Clerk reported to the Board of Commissioners that, with regard to the Vollmer Group and the DooWop Hotel/Motel Preservation project, the Borough is awaiting a letter from the Department of Community Affairs to enable the Borough to insert an item of revenue into the 2006 municipal budget, representing the Borough’s share of the Smart Growth Grant. He indicated further that no contract can be entered into with Vollmer Group until that letter is received.

 

Commissioner Cabrera advised that he has received communications regarding litter on the beach, and specifically cigarette butts, becoming a problem. He inquired if there might be grant monies available from the State or County to assist in a public relations campaign to increase awareness of cigarette litter on the beaches. Mrs. Gould questioned the feasibility of enforcement of any such regulations.  Mr. Cabrera responded that enforcement may well prove to be a problem, and that his objective at this time would be to increase awareness of the public through signage and a public relations campaign. Mrs. Gould agreed that signage would be a good first step. Mr. Groon concurred. Mr. Groon also asked Mr. Cabrera if Public Works had any equipment that would remove cigarette butts from the sand. Mr. Cabrera responded that they did not. Mr. Cabrera indicated that he would look into whether funding might be available for signs and literature.

 

Mr. Cabrera reported that due to the recent tropical storm, the Borough has lost many of the beach walkways. He has requested that the Clerk look into whether the Borough’s insurance might provide some coverage for the loss. He added that perhaps the Borough should reconsider the bike path on the beach project, since this was a minor storm and it caused moderate damage to the walkways. He questioned what the result of a major storm might be. Mr. Groon agreed, indicating that he was surprised at the amount of damage along the beach. The Clerk added that the Borough’s insurance coverage documents may have exclusions for these types of “non-permanent structures” as well as wind/flood damages but he has asked for additional documentation from Public Works as to the parameters of the damage, how much replacement walkways may cost, and specifically when the problem occurred. Mr. Groon interjected that he agreed with Mr. Cabrera with regard to the bike path that the Borough should take another look at the consequences of building on the beach.

 

The Clerk reported that he has sought information from all Borough departments with regard to computer software utilized in the various departments or that may be required to assist in their operations. He added that he and Mr. Groon have met with a few information technology companies to allow for the integration of all systems in the Borough, including remote locations such as public works, recreation and beach patrol. He added that it is anticipated that the computer system upgrades should be 2007 expenditures, whether funded budgetary or through a capital ordinance has as of yet to be determined. He went on to report that a “system-wide evaluation” will cost the Borough approximately $2,000. Mr. Groon indicated that it would be the intention to have the “system-wide evaluation” completed in the 2006 budget year in order to include the bulk of the project in the 2007 budget. Mr. Cabrera inquired if the scope includes hardware, software and networking. The Clerk responded in the affirmative, adding that it would also include maintenance. The Clerk added that the indication has been that a lot of the hardware is new enough to be retained, but the evaluation will include that information. Mr. Cabrera inquired if one company would do everything. Mr. Groon responded that it would not include software. Mr. Cabrera indicated that there is a wireless DSL system in Borough Hall that will have to be changed. Mr. Groon stated that there had been discussion of that possibility as well.

 

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

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes
