After the floor was opened for public commentary and there were no comments, the Mayor opened the discussion of New Business with the Army Corps Beach Plan.  Commissioner Cabrera indicated he has yet to hear from Tom Thornton (Hatch Mott MacDonald).  There was some correspondence with regards to what the dune elevation would be and it seems that Heather Road seems to be an accurate gauge.  The Mayor indicated that more interaction with the DEP should take place. 

 

The second topic of the NJWELL Program was discussed.  The Clerk provided information regarding the Program through New Jersey State Health Benefits.  Members participate in the program and accumulate points for various wellness programs to participate and when they get 250 points, they receive a $100 gift card through Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  The Borough’s responsibility is to encourage participation because the more points accumulated by employees can mean up to 1% in the premium the following year.  The Commissioners agreed to encourage participation.

 

With regards to Old Business, items two (Wildwood Crest “branding”) and three (Personnel Manual) would be given to the new Administrator.  Commissioner Gould informed the governing body that she has a contact that works in “branding” and she would be in touch.  The Borough Clerk informed the governing body that she would pass on the information that was previously gathered with respect to branding. 

 

After opening up the floor for public commentary once again and hearing no comments, Commissioner Gould directed a question to Lt. McGrath regarding Memorial Day Weekend.  Lt. McGrath indicated that there were several arrests, but for the most part, it was a smooth weekend. 

 

After giving the public another opportunity to speak and hearing nothing further from the public, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Cabrera that meeting be adjourned.

 

Vote:          Gould - Cabrera – Groon – Yes
