The first matter for discussion was the Uniform Construction Code Office. The Clerk reported that he and the Mayor met with officials from North Wildwood to discuss options for the creation of a dual construction office, with one individual construction official to be shared, but on each municipality’s payroll individually. There are other details to be refined such as health insurance for the individual hired, sub-code officials, and clerical staff. He indicated that seven applicants had been chosen to be interviewed, and those interviews would be scheduled the first week in October.

 

With regard to the renovations of the second floor of Borough Hall, Mr. Groon had earlier presented several suggested reconfigurations to the governing body for their review, and he requested their input on those suggestions. It was his recommendation that the second floor conference/meeting room be utilized for the construction office, and that the current code enforcement office/lunch room be utilized as a new conference room. He added that it was his suggestion that his current office be utilized as a land use/construction meeting room and he would move his office elsewhere. He asked the governing body to provide him with their recommendations as soon as possible.

 

A discussion was had regarding the discontinuation of funding by the County of Cape May for Fare Free Transportation in the Wildwoods. It was suggested that a strong letter be addressed to the Freeholders opposing the discontinuation of the funding, in conjunction with Wildwood and North Wildwood. The Clerk was asked, by the Mayor, to first contact those municipalities to request a meeting to possibly formulate an island-wide letter to the Freeholders.

 

The next matter for discussion was a request from a film production company to conduct a film shoot in various locations in Wildwood Crest. The Clerk indicated that the main request was for the closure of New Jersey Avenue during a portion of the filming. Additionally, he inquired if the governing body was at all concerned about the content of the film. The governing body agreed that the content of the film would be required before providing authorization. The Clerk indicated that the governing body could approve the request, subject to approval of the content by the governing body. The governing body unanimously concurred. The Chief of Police suggested that they be required to hire off-duty police officers for traffic and crowd control since New Jersey is a major artery in town. The Clerk concurred, to which the Mayor responded that he would discuss that matter with the Chief of Police directly.

 

There being no further matters for discussion, and no public comments, THE CLERK READ THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION BY TITLE ONLY, highlighting that the governing body would be convening a closed session immediately following passage of the resolution for the purposes stated below, that the discussion would be released to the public upon the conclusion of the matter, and that the governing body would be returning to open session after the closed session discussion, with possible formal action being taken as a result thereof:

RESOLUTION NO. 113-09

(Closed Session: negotiations; personnel matters)

 

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

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

Upon returning from closed session, there being no further matters for discussion, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Groon, that the meeting be adjourned.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

Dated:        October 21, 2009
