The Mayor then opened the floor for public comment. 

 

After no comments from the public, the Mayor introduced New Business.  The first topic was ALS/Paramedic Issue and there was no new information and therefore concluded to be a dead issue for this year due to a budgetary impact and the commissioners agreed that this issue can be removed from discussion.  The second topic is 2014 Capital Improvements and this was recently done and there was no further discussion on this topic.  The third issue is the Army Corps of Engineers Study and the Mayor urged everyone to encourage the Engineer to work with the entire staff including Van Note- Harvey’s group and the Superintendent of Public Works and Commissioner Cabrera.  This will be further discussed at the January 22, 2014 meeting and hopefully get a better look at what the Borough’s exposures are and the long term process.  The fourth topic is OPRA/OPMA issue.  The Borough Solicitor informed all about a previous complaint regarding Closed Session Minutes and Closed Session Discussion under the Open Public Meetings Act with regards to OPRA requests.  The Solicitor confirmed that Board of Commissioners is taking steps to be more detailed in those minutes in order to be in compliance and the Mayor indicated that this topic is no longer an issue for discussion.    

 

With there being no further business with regards to New Business, Old business was opened for discussion.  The Mayor indicated that the “branding” is still postponed temporarily.  The last topic was Rambler Road and Commissioner Cabrera informed all that he had requested the Engineer to resubmit the drawings because of estimates of bicycle path to widen came in under and there was the possibility that the necessary concrete work could be done as well with the same contractor.  The Mayor indicated that the three concepts are a bit different on the entrance and there was also a fourth discussion on bypassing the circle.  It was concluded that the Commissioners need to discuss the options regarding the circle and prices.  It was suggested to have Special Meeting to meet in person at the Park to look at the area and discuss the different prices.  The Commissioners touched on “branding” again and Commissioner Cabrera indicated he believed there was money from Convention Hall that we get back this time of year.  The Mayor confirmed we get approximately $ 60,000.00 and $30,000.00 be placed in the budget to support current events and the remaining balance (approximately $30,000.00) and would be set aside for hiring a company to proceed with a branding study.  It was agreed to do this slowly and deliberately and to let the new Administrator handle this and that this summer was too soon to do this properly.  This concluded Old Business.

 

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

Vote:          Gould-Cabrera-Groon-Yes
