Robert Young stated that he was flabbergasted, and inquired if there were plans to be reviewed. He was advised that there were plans to be reviewed and Mr. Young was welcome to do so. The Clerk then provided Mr. Young with those plans.  Mr. Young stated that his concern was with Bayview Drive. He was advised that the plan goes straight down New Jersey Avenue, and goes on some side streets that support the outfall lines to the west side of town. Mr. Young indicated that he had heard that between St. Paul and Louisville it would be going down Bayview Drive. The Engineer responded that that was for drainage purposes only. Mr. Young next indicated that according to the Borough’s budget, the Borough’s debt was to be reduced annually until 2014, at which time the sewerage project would commence and the projected cost was $6,000,000. He was advised that the Borough was fortunate enough to obtain financing from the New Jersey Environmental Infrastructure Trust with a very favorable interest rate, and the Borough will not start paying on the debt until 2015. Additionally, Mr. Young was advised that it will be a two year project, the first half the first year and the other half the second year. He was further advised that the repayment on the debt does not commence until the project is complete, which will be 2015.  Mr. Young voiced his satisfaction with the explanations provided.

 

There being no additional public comments, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Cabrera, that the public hearing on Ordinance No. 1149 be closed.

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes

With regard to the GWTIDA state funding resolution, the Solicitor reported that the City of Wildwood adopted the resolution, and she was waiting to hear from North Wildwood, but it was her understanding that they did not.

 

The Clerk reported that discussions regarding the 2013 Capital improvements were ongoing.

 

Concerning the amendment of the Bulkheads, Docks and Piers section of the Borough Code, as well as Dumpsters, Parking Meters on Atlantic Avenue, Mercantile Licensing, and Beach Rules and Regulations, it was decided that further discussion of those matters would be withheld until the first meeting in November.

 

Mr. Cabrera asked for confirmation that the funds authorized for the UEZ earlier would be paid to the City of Wildwood and not directly to the UEZ. The Solicitor responded that the UEZ will have its own account, and the funds would be paid to the UEZ and not to the City of Wildwood. The Clerk inquired as to whom would be administering the account. Mr. Cabrera responded that he had requested that the Borough’s CFO be the person to administer the account, and there had been no confirmation of that request. The Solicitor stated that it was her understanding that the City of Wildwood would be establishing a fund and payments will go into that fund and be paid out accordingly. The City of Wildwood will actually be funding the expenses up through and including Friday, October 26, 2012. After that date, the funds that are received will be deposited into a separate account to be set up.

 

Mr. Cabrera stated that he had some suggestions for revisions to the beach ordinance. Mr. Groon stated that at the first meeting in November he wanted to confirm what ordinances are being amended, who will be drafting the amendments, and to set a timeline to finalize the ordinances.

 

With regard to the Borough logo design, Mrs. Gould reported that she had attended a seminar at which she learned that communities must have specific items to draw tourists, and that general sayings are no longer sufficient. The speaker at the seminar stated over and over that communities must “jettison the generic” and have a specific thing that the community is known for. It was decided that Mrs. Gould would take over the logo design project.

 

Mrs. Gould reported that the head of the Wildwood Crest Historical Society had requested that the piano in the museum be removed by the Borough. The DPW Superintendent stated that he would want the request in writing before he would have his personnel remove the piano.

 

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