The Clerk provided information packets to the Board of Commissioners regarding the Grant Application for NJDOT Safe Streets to Schools Program. He asked that the Commissioners review the materials. He added that he, the Borough Engineer, and the Chief of Police had met with representatives from Triad regarding this grant application. There are infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects that Triad is pursuing on behalf of the Borough, and before those are finalized he asked that the Commissioners review the Safe Streets Program materials. The Clerk reported that some of the ideas put forth by Triad for the Safe Streets Programs funding would be overtime for police personnel for their responsibilities in the school regarding pedestrian and bicycle safety, as well as re-working the drop-off/parking configuration at the school.

 

The next matter for discussion was the Crest Pire Store No. 4 bid. The Clerk indicated that the bid for Store No. 4 is the only bid outstanding, and is currently held by Elena Salmons. He added that after two advertisements for bids for Store No. 2, no bids were received. He reminded the Commissioners that there is the ability to negotiate a contract for that store; however, the rental cannot be less than the minimum bid set in both advertised bid specifications. He reminded the governing body that a decision will have to be made by the April 2, 2008 meeting as to their wishes regarding the bid on Store No. 4.

 

The Clerk reported to the governing body that the Borough Engineer has requested authorization to publish a CAFRA notice regarding the Fitness Park Pavilion. The Clerk requested a motion.

Mr. Cabrera motioned, seconded by Mr. Groon, that authorization be provided to publish said notice.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

The Clerk indicated that he had provided to each of the Commissioners revised drawings for the proposed Rambler Road Park Project. He also provided revised cost estimated in conjunction with the proposed project. He indicated that it was his understanding that there is a total of $850,000 earmarked for the project, $308,000 of which is provided in grant funding. Mr. Groon inquired if there was a timeframe involved. The Clerk responded that “spring is coming” and suggested that a decision be made by the April 2, 2008 meeting. He added that the Commissioners should provide him with their thoughts by March 28, 2008. Mrs. Gould inquired of Mr. Cabrera whether he had discussed the matter with the Borough Engineer. Mr. Cabrera responded in the affirmative, adding that there are additional matters he wanted to review with the Engineer. Mrs. Gould inquired as to the proposed charge for the memorial benches to be placed at the Fitness Park. Mr. Cabrera indicated that a price had not been set as yet, and that the price will be based on the cost of the benches. Mr. Groon inquired if the Clerk had spoken to Triad Associates regarding the potential for any additional grants. The Clerk responded in the affirmative, adding that they will be putting together a package to show what the Borough’s needs are, and will try to fit the Borough’s needs into some existing grant programs. Mr. Groon asked that the Clerk follow up with Triad regarding potential grants specifically for the Rambler Road project.

 

Nancy Pietropaoli, 6002 Seaview Avenue, inquired as to the progress on the reconstruction of Seaview Avenue. Mr. Cabrera responded that the project was delayed, but it is projected that the work will be complete prior to the commencement of the “busiest part of the season.” He added that the bid specifications require the contractor to complete the project by Memorial Day weekend, and if it is not completed by that date, there is a substantial penalty.

 

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