Vote:          Gould – Cabrera – Groon – Yes

 

The Mayor opened with New Business. There was an initial request to move the Philip Baker monument from the current location that is adjacent to the requestor’s property.  Mrs. Gould indicated that she would like to see the sign go with the Historical Society, wherever that may be.  The Mayor indicated that it looks difficult to move.  Mr. Cabrera suggested that it be moved to the new playground and name the park “Philip Baker Park.”  Ultimately, the commissioners agreed that more information is needed to see if it can be moved.  Commissioner Cabrera then indicated that the stamped concrete at Farragut Road looks like wood along the boardwalk.  It will go all along the lake front and there will be circular seating areas with landscaping.   He would also like to see gas fired lamps in the middle of the seating areas in order to extend the season.  He also indicated that Recreation or Public Works could turn them off and on.  The Borough Engineer indicated that Atlantic Electric will provide the infrastructure, but the physical connection of the unit to the infrastructure will be on the Borough.  The Mayor asked how many meters would be there and Commissioner Cabrera indicated eight.  The Engineer then added the design from the Supervisor would be forthcoming and perhaps a meter at each location and everything beyond the meter is the property owner’s responsibility.  Commissioner Gould questioned whether the lighting was necessary.  Commissioner Gould then indicated she would like more time to evaluate the area before making a decision.  The Mayor then asked for a summary for all things previously budgeted and for the landscaping units and the architectural design on a typical street end.  The Mayor suggested that each Commissioner review the proposals and contact the Deputy Clerk with their decision/response.  The Borough Engineer indicated he would get a dimensional plan.  The Mayor then questioned the plan for the proposed number of meters since the Borough was trying to eliminate impediments.  The Mayor then inquired about the status of the telephone poles and Commissioner Cabrera indicated that it was still in the fall and the state funds could be used at the end of the project and the Engineer indicated it was approximately $400.00 per pole.  The pole at Stanton Avenue would have to remain. Lastly, the Mayor questioned the area south of the Yacht Club and its lack of protection.  The Engineer indicated the worse erosion is at Atlanta Avenue.

 

The Mayor then opened the floor for public commentary.  Mike Healy, 13 Wakefield Place, North Cape May, indicated that he needed clarification Ordinance No. 1212 with regard to ice cream vending.  The Mayor indicated that he did not have the Ordinance in front of him and he would need to review it and then give him an answer.  The Mayor added the intent was not meant to limit custard.  Mr. Healy wanted to know exactly what is allowed and not allowed.  Mr. Healy also wanted to know why the license is not transferrable.  The Mayor indicated it was a decision by the Board and all three categories would be non-transferrable.  The Mayor then asked for Mr. Healy to make an appointment for further clarification. 

 

Nancy Pietropaoli, 6002 Seaview Avenue, wanted to touch upon Emergency Generators and making sure the topic remains current.  The Mayor then indicated that the topic was not forgotten and then were waiting to hear about a grant.   

 

Hearing nothing further from the public, Mrs. Gould motioned, and Mr. Cabrera seconded, that the meeting be adjourned.  All were in favor.  The time was 7:43 p.m.
