There were no correspondences to address.

 

The Mayor then opened the floor for public commentary.  Nancy Pietropaoli, 6002 Seaview, inquired about handicapped parking at the New Library and why the west side of Atlantic Avenue can’t be utilized.  The Mayor indicated that we could look at that and asked Capt. McGrath if we can check on two spots on both Columbine and Wisteria Roads.  The Mayor further indicated that we may have to amend the Ordinance. 

 

James Kopaz, 304 E. Charleston Avenue, also asked the Board to consider straight lines across from the parking lot toward entrance and also to have an easier access from the sidewalk into the building.   The Mayor indicated that we would need to talk to the County to ask them to make any changes.  Commissioner Cabrera added that he has a scheduled meeting with the Director and will address landscaping. 

 

Jim Kiesel, 6605 Park Blvd., pointed out that the trucks on Park Blvd. travel too fast and they are not following the truck route.  He also noted that his house tends to shake when the trucks travel at fast speeds.  The Mayor pointed out that we live on an island and that there will be ground instability.  He also noted that enforcement of trucks on the truck route would be the best way to go.  The May asked Capt. McGrath to contact Wildwood Police Department as well so we can go after the trucks.   Capt. McGrath added that over 35 pedestrian signs were ordered and were in the process of being installed and the sign board has been in used at Park Blvd. entrance to enforce the truck route and that numerous traffic details have been assigned. 

 

William Carr, 120 E. Primrose Road, referenced Ordinance No. 1235 that was recently adopted on Rental Properties.  He thanked the Governing Body for passing the ordinance and then pointed out that three different properties on Primrose Road have had excessive police calls for service.  He wanted to know what could be done.  The Mayor indicated that the ordinance went into effect at the end of March.  He advised Mr. Carr to follow up with Capt. McGrath for concerns.  The Mayor pointed out that the Governing Body was not privy to activity at the specific properties and could not comment.  Mr. Carr inquired about rescinding mercantile licenses or the possibility of fining the landlords.  The Mayor indicated he would have to have the Administrator and Solicitor review the ordinance. 

 

Tim Bennett, 217 W. Charleston Avenue, indicated that the date on Resolution No. 14 should be July 23, 2016 and not July 28, 2016.  The Clerk indicated it was a typo and the correct date is on the Resolution. 

 

Dennis Travascio, 112 E. Louisville Avenue, asked if the fourth Resolution for an Engineer was replacing the engineer the Borough currently has and the Mayor indicated that it was.  Mr. Travascio then asked about the Change Order for Atlantic Avenue parking lot and the Mayor indicated that the change order decreased the amount the Borough owed. 

 

Tony Mirabella, 7210 Pacific Avenue, noted that the speed on Pacific Avenue is way too fast.  The Mayor pointed out that speed is a difficult issue and pedestrian signs cannot be on every block and that they are used at choke points (i.e. Businesses and parks).  The Mayor also shared that the Borough has petitioned the County for a traffic study on Pacific Avenue. 

 

The Mayor noted for the record that if anyone has anything they would like the Commissioners to know that they can always come to Borough Hall and see the Clerk or the Commissioners and that they didn’t have to wait for a scheduled meeting.

 

Ginger Young, 102 E. Primrose Road, addressed two points of concern.  The first was the problem on Primrose Road with the absentee landlords and their tenants.  The Mayor again noted that he could not comment on specific properties and that the Police need to build a case.  The second point was the status of signage at Sunset Lake.  The Mayor stated he would have to get back to Mrs. Young. 

 

Capt. McGrath noted for the record that he would stay after the meeting to meet with any citizens over any and all issues. 

 

After no further commentary from the public, the Mayor pointed out the Borough has a scheduled meeting for Saturday, August 6th at 9:30 a.m. as well in case there are any issues the public would like to address.  The Mayor asked the Clerk to add the following to the agenda:

-no smoking on beaches

-beach boxes

-bike racks

-street signs for beach

 

For old business, there were no updates for the generators.  The Mayor indicated there was a planned meeting on July 13th that they were trying to resolve for the mitigation/storm damage at Sunset Lake.  There were no updates for the Army Corps Beach Plan.  With regard to the County Signage, Commissioner Cabrera pointed out that perhaps the Borough needs a study of the signage that we have and that maybe signage was needed at the street ends and the bike path. 

The last item was the Jumbotron and Commissioner Gould indicated that with the cost of the rental and not being able to guarantee that NBC would broadcast Joe Maloy in entirety, suggested that we do something as a community after the Olympics for our hometown Olympian.  The Recreation Assistant added that people could watch online at www.nbcolympics.com. 

 

After no further commentary, Mrs. Gould motioned, seconded by Mr. Cabrera, that we move into Closed Session.
