The first matter for discussion was the Comcast Cable Franchise renewal. The Clerk indicated that Comcast had previously sought a fifteen year renewal, but the Borough’s ordinance in that regard had previously granted a ten year franchise. He indicated to the governing body that any information communicated to them by the public should be communicated to Comcast during the negotiation process. It was the Clerk’s understanding that the current franchise is due to expire in 2010. Mr. Cabrera stated that he had been approached by residents regarding negotiating a special rate for senior citizens. The Clerk suggested that the Commissioners develop lists of concerns or suggestions to be submitted to Comcast since the submission of the information and position statements will be finally provided by a new administration in 2009. Mr. Groon interjected that it is incumbent upon the public to provide the Borough with their concerns. Mr. Cabrera inquired if the franchise is only for cable television service or if it is also for high speed internet service. The Clerk responded that it is for television service.  The Mayor concluded the discussion by recommending that perhaps an “ island-wide approach”  would be best.

 

There being no public comments, THE CLERK READ THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION, specifically regarding the ongoing JCOW fire suppression litigation and personnel to address current administrative performance against future needs, BY TITLE ONLY:

RESOLUTION NO. 710-08

(Closed Session – potential litigation and negotiations, specifically, the Borough’s continued involvement in the ongoing JCOW fire suppression violations; and personnel matters, specifically to discuss overall performance of current administrative staff against future needs)

 

Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Cabrera, that the foregoing Resolution be adopted.

Vote:           Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

Upon returning from closed session, THE CLERK READ THE FOLLOWING ORDINANCE BY TITLE ONLY:
