First order of business: June Meeting Minutes
The June minutes were unanimously approved; motion by John Jackson, second by Bernice Shapiro.
Second order of business: Public Health Report
The Board members received the monthly report for June, 2004. Pearson Education opened up without notifying John. The kitchen had been open for about one month. They have corrected the issues John cited pursuant to his inspection. John has an issue with the snack bar at Cranbury Swim Club. They are making more food than last year and he notified them that they need to install a three compartment sink in the kitchen area. John was at Hannah and Mason’s today; they would like to open mid-next week. He still gave them a conditionally satisfactory rating for some minor issues. He will revisit next Tuesday and believes that they should have everything done by then. The Chairman asked if they dug up the sidewalk to put in a new gas line. John did not know but will ask about this next Tuesday. John inspected the pools at Four Seasons; they knew that the inspection would not be satisfactory but it was required to be conducted by contract. The pool is now open but the spa is not. The Gentle Healing Wellness Spa complaint concerns the use of towels and other linens more than once without laundering. John inspected and found this complaint to be without merit. John received a call from a Cranbury resident who has a problem with his neighbor’s dog toileting on the dog owner’s property, which abuts the complainant’s property. This issue will be included on the July report.

Fifth order of business: New Business
The Chairman said that the landscaping at the old Carter-Wallace site on Half-Acre road is overgrown and may create a potential health hazard, i.e., rodents. John will look into this.
