The Commissioners next discussed the cost estimates for the beach as a result of the storm damage.  It was determined that a special emergency would be created, in the amount of $800,000, to fund – and paid back over 5 years – beach grading, dune reconstruction, bayfront street-end barricades, ADA compliant beach walkways, dune vegetation, purchase/erection of sand fencing and repairs to the beach patrol building.  It was further determined that the reconstruction of the walkways and installation of the sand fencing, planting of dune vegetation would be performed by DPW.  The governing body further determined to approve the roughly $207,000 “pay as you go” (capital improvement fund) list, as developed by administration, which included the 9-1-1 system, police vehicle, parking meters, kayak launch ramp, technical software upgrade, beach patrol vehicle, beach patrol building repairs, and removal of asbestos at the fishing pier.  The Clerk/Administrator and CFO, in this regard, were directed to prepare and circulate the necessary Capital Ordinance for the first meeting in January so that any required capital improvement items so contained in the Ordinance, after final adoption, could be purchased early in the year.

 

DPW staff advised that problems with telephone extension transfers from Borough Hall were continuing.  The Clerk/Administrator was directed to get the principals together, with the Borough’s IT Manager, for purpose of resolving the ongoing problems once and for all!
