Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

 

The first matter for discussion was a request for a paddle board rental concession. Mr. Cabrera stated that it was too late to be able to consider such a concession prior to the 2012 summer season. He added that he questioned the ability of the Borough to lease public space for a rental operation without going through the bid process, as well as the ability of the Borough to govern open waters in Sunset Lake. The Clerk concurred. Mrs. Gould and Mr. Groon also concurred. The Clerk indicated that he would respond accordingly to the person making the request.

 

With regard to the concession rentals at the beach pier and Nesbitt Center, the Clerk stated that he, Mr. Cabrera, the Engineer and Solicitor would be meeting to discuss the possibilities of moving those concession rentals forward.

 

The Clerk indicated that a request had been received from a private citizen to purchase property from the Borough at 8700 New Jersey Avenue. He stated that in order to do so, the Borough would have to adopt an ordinance indicating that the land is no longer needed for public use and to thereafter offer same for public sale. Mrs. Gould inquired if the property is next to the school. Mr. Cabrera stated that he thought the address in the letter was in error, and that it was probably 8702 for the vacant lot. Mrs. Gould asked if it was known how the land would be utilized. Mr. Cabrera responded that it was his understanding that the property owner adjacent to the land at 8700 New Jersey was requesting to purchase the land. He added that the land has been vacant for many years, and he was not aware if there was any future use for the land. The Solicitor inquired as to the zoning of the vacant lot. Mr. Cabrera responded that he thought it was Residential/Business. Mr. Groon stated that the first course of action would be to determine that there is no other need to the Borough for that piece of property. It was determined that the matter would be further discussed at a future meeting.

 

The Clerk inquired if the Engineer had any additional information to report with regard to NJEIT Funding. The Engineer responded that he had spoken to representatives of NJEIT and they had hoped to finalize the rates by this time, but that would now be delayed until summer. He added that as long as the Borough capitalizes the interest, payments may be deferred up to three years.

 

With regard to the Borough logo design, the Clerk reported that he, Mr. Cabrera and the Assistant Recreation Supervisor met with the vendor with respect to designs. Two additional designs were presented, for a total of three being provided to date. It was the intent that the vendor would be making revisions to be reviewed. Mr. Cabrera indicated that what had been presented to date were work products, and he had asked that final products be presented for the May 9th meeting for the review of the entire governing body.

 

The Clerk reported that the Borough had received a request from the Environmental Commission for a representative of the Borough to attend their May meeting. He indicated that a response letter will be sent to the Chairman of the Environmental Commission with an indication that the Environmental Commission may discuss any issues they may have and the Borough would be receptive to any written recommendations they may make. Thereafter, a course of action will be made by the Borough. The governing body concurred with the approach as presented.

 

Concerning the Boardwalk/Bike Path Connector project, the Clerk indicated that the project was moving forward, and that a ground breaking ceremony would take place on May 9th.

 

With regard to the Memorial Bench Policy ordinance, the Clerk reported that he had made revisions to the ordinance and additional discussion would be necessary. It was determined that any additional comments should be made to the Clerk prior to May 2, 2012.

 

James Zecca, 115 East Hollywood Avenue, commented on various traffic lights in Wildwood Crest. He indicated that there are several that the Borough should consider not turning on for the summer; specifically, Park Boulevard and Aster Road, New Jersey Avenue and Heather Road, Pacific Avenue and Heather Rod, New Jersey Avenue and Palm Road, New Jersey Avenue and Rosemary Road, and Seaview and Heather Road. He stated that at the price of gasoline, the lights waste fuel and do nothing to control traffic. The Chief of Police responded that one of the reasons those lights have been installed over the years was for traffic control to break the speed of vehicles. The initial reason for the light at Aster and Park was for the former elementary school. However, since there is no break in traffic on Park Boulevard, the State and County determined to leave the light in place. He reiterated that most of the lights are there to slow the speed of traffic. Mr. Zecca stated that it was his opinion that most of the lights are not performing any function, and gave Avalon as an example. He added that the Wildwood Crest Police do a “very nice job” of controlling traffic. Mr. Groon stated that the businesses in the vicinity of Park Boulevard and Aster had requested more lights to slow traffic due to the pedestrian travel in the bay front area. He added that he will review the situation with the Chief of Police.

 

Peter Cava, 210 East St. Louis Avenue, requested an elaboration on the Cresse Avenue Boardwalk/Bike Path Connector, and specifically asked if there is a design. Mr. Cabrera responded that there is a design, and the project came in $40,000 under budget. He indicated that the bike path, heading north, will turn slightly easterly and run somewhat parallel with the Boardwalk, with a slight incline and a turn onto the Boardwalk.

 

There being no further public comments, THE CLERK READ THE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION BY TITLE ONLY:
