                  --Members of Committee

                              Mr. Paconi reported he had held his monthly meeting with Police Chief Jay Hansen to go over any issues he had and to review the overtime.  Mr. Panconi reported the overtime was a little higher last month due to two police officers’ wives having babies.  However, the overtime was well within the budget.  Mr. Panconi also reported he had spoken with Judy Dossin, who reported there had been some vandalism (someone had sprayed graffiti on the marble benches) in Heritage Park and she had reached out to Lt. Varga.  Mr. Panconi contacted Captain Ed Kahler who indicated the police are on top of the situation and do have a suspect.  Ms. Dossin also had reported someone had gone on the West property and had made “donuts” with some type of vehicle.  Ms. Dossin had contacted the Police Department to see what they could do about the situation.  Mr. Panconi reached out to Captain Kahler, who indicated the parks are a high priority.  Mr. Panconi asked Captain Kahler if the police could do walk patrols in the parks.  Captain Kahler indicated the police are all on board with the idea and well aware of the problem.

 

                              Mr. Stout reported he had attend the Cranbury Elementary School play, “Into The Woods” this past weekend and wanted to give “kudos” to the entire staff, students and parents.  Mr. Stout reported the set design was tremendous and the acting impressive. 

 

                              Ms. Stave reported she and Mr. Stout had met with Freeholder Director Crabiel the previous week and had a very short but substantive meeting. 

                 

                  --Members of Committee (Continued)

 

                              Freeholder Director Crabiel gave Ms. Stave and Mr. Stout an indication of what kind of funding would be available for open space acquisition and for recreation.  Ms. Stave indicated they would be sending out letters and

                              talking to individuals and getting back to him so Cranbury could get its fair share.  Ms. Stave asked Lisa Randazzese, Township Attorney, the status of the signage issue with the Parks Commission.  Ms. Randazzese reported the Parks Commission has not yet gotten back to her with their final approval.  Ms. Stave asked Mr. Carr, Township Administrator, to stay on top of this issue and as soon as it was approved, the signs should be put up by the Township’s Public Works’ Department. 

 

                              Mr. Panconi reported on the General Spice Odor Issue.  Mr. Panconi indicated Mr. Witt had requested a meeting with General Spice, Middlesex County, Cathleen Marcelli, Township Engineer and Mr. Panconi to bring this to their attention officially.  Mr. Panconi also reported on the vehicle transfer of the suburban and asked Mr. Carr when the transfer would be done.  Mr. Carr indicated it was up to the Departments.  Mayor Beauregard raised a question as to whether or not a resolution would have to be adopted.  Mr. Carr indicated based on his discussions with Lisa Randazzese, Township Attorney, it was not necessary.

Work Session

 

                  a.   Equipment Needs of Cranbury Fire Company (Tom Panconi)

Mr. Panconi reported the equipment needs of the Cranbury Volunteer Fire Company were evaluated in January 1999 at the request of the Township Committee.  Mr. Panconi discussed with the Township Committee the need to update the evaluation and recommended having Mr. Peters come back to update the Township Committee on the Fire Company’s needs.  Mr. Charles Smith and Mr. Sam DiStasio were present to address the Township Committee and indicated the Fire Company would be requesting the second-in-line model first- responder vehicle and not the top-of-the-line.  The Fire Company would be asking the Township to pay approximately $400,000.  This truck would represent replacing two vehicles.   Mr. Stannard raised the question if the Fire Company could trade in the ladder truck.  Mr. DiStaso indicated it was not worth trading in.  Mr. Panconi indicated the cost of updating the previous report would be about $750.00 and then the Township could work on a contract with Mr. Peters to prepare bid specs, should the need arise .     Members of the Township Committee concurred to move forward with this issue. 

 

b.   Employee Manual

Mayor Beauregard reported at the last meeting the Township Committee discussed possible changes to Section 35 of the Personnel Manual, which addressed the Dress Code for Township Employees.  Mr. Carr had been

b.   Employee Manual (cont’d)

assigned the task of finding out what practice other municipalities followed.  Members of the Township Committee were given the information in their folders. 

Ms. Scott conducted a survey of the other towns.  Mr. Panconi indicated, based on the survey, he was changing his original decision, due to many towns having “casual Fridays” and would endorse the idea.  However, Mr. Panconi raised his concern Township employees represent the Town and would trust the employees will be able to carry it out without it being a problem.  Mr. Stannard indicated he was also concerned with employees not looking professional.  Mr. Stannard supported it under the condition it does not turn out to be “Gilligan’s Island”.  Mayor Beauregard indicated in her personnel subcommittee files she had found language concerning “casual dress day” and would be willing to share it with members of Committee.  Mayor Beauregard also indicated she would support the idea.  Ms. Stave indicated the idea seemed reasonable, given what other municipalities are doing and had trust the Township employees would respect the Township’s expectations of their professionalism.  Mr. Stout also endorsed the idea. Mayor Beauregard indicated the Personnel Manuel would need to be adopted once a decision concerning the specific language concerning casual dress is determined by the Township Committee.

 

c.   Mayoral and Township Committee Appointments   

Mayor Beauregard reported Mr. Bob Hemler, Chairman of the Library Board of Trustees, sent her a letter recommending Mr. Hal Rourke to fill the vacancy of Ms. Holland’s resignation from the Library Board of Trustees.  Mayor Beauregard met with Mr. Hemler and Mr. Rourke earlier in the day and indicated Mr. Rourke being well qualified and asked for consensus from the Township Committee.  All members concurred.  Mayor Beauregard appointed Mr. Rourke to the Library Board of Trustees, with a term expiring December 31, 2009.

 

Public Comment

 

The Mayor opened the meeting to public questions and comments on those items not on the agenda.  Ms. Linda Scott, Township Employee, thanked the Township Committee for reviewing the “denim issue”.  Ms. Scott requested should there be any inappropriate wearing of jeans to the office, that person be counseled on an individual basis and not everyone penalized for it.  Mayor Beauregard indicated the issue would be dealt with on an individual basis, as it was usually handled. 

 

Mr. Panconi indicated he would be raising a question when Mr. Berkowsky gives his update to the Township Committee on the Police Station, as to why there had been an electric hot water heater in the building specs. 

 

Ms. Connie Bauder, Petty Road, asked if the Township Committee could update the public on the Conagra (General Spice) odor  issue.   Mr. Panconi reported he had been involved trying to solve this issue since February.  Mr. Panconi indicated he and Tom Witt had reached out to Conagra last week to attend a meeting at the Township to try to resolve an amicable solution to the problem.  Mr. Panconi had also reached out to The Cranbury Mothers’ Club to place a notice in their newsletter if anyone smells anything to e-mail him and indicated he has complaint forms available.  Ms. Bauder asked if anyone on the Township Committee knew any more than Mr. Panconi had reported.  Mayor Beauregard indicated Mr. Panconi had taken the lead on this issue, and had been working with Mr. Witt to meet with Conagra and offered, with the consent of the members of Committee, to provide Ms. Bauder with a copy of the memo Mr. Witt had prepared concerning the issue.  Ms. Bauder indicated there had been a problem in trying to make a

 

 

Public Comment (Continued)

 

complaint when the smell had been noticed.  Ms. Bauder indicated it had been difficult to track down the Health Officer and asked that her telephone number be made available should someone need to reach her.  Ms. Bauder reported she had called the County that day and the County sent someone out to Conagra.  The County verified Conagra’s two stacks are venting, causing the odor to escape.  Without a complaint from someone in Cranbury, the County could not proceed to issue a formal complaint.  Therefore, Ms. Bauder filed a formal complaint against Conagra and reported the violation notice would be served on Conagra the next day.  Ms. Bauder reported Conagra would have 90 days from the date of the complaint to resolve the issue.  Ms. Bauder also indicated Monroe Township was also complaining about the problem.  Mayor

Beauregard addressed Ms. Bauder’s concern about the telephone system and indicated a telephone extension had been added to the menu for the Health Officer and indicated the Township does not have a full-time Health Officer.  The Health Officer does have a telephone number on her voice mail, indicating a number to reach in an emergency at the Middlesex County Health Department.   

 

Mr. Richard Kallan, Wynnewood Drive, addressed the Township Committee concerning a recent problem in other towns on Sunday morning with a water main leak and asked what plan the Township had in place in the event something similar should happen in Cranbury.  Ms. Stave responded and indicated the new website would have the capability of posting any urgent notices to residents immediately.  Mayor Beauregard responded she would speak to the Police Chief, Jay Hansen to determine what system is in place.

 

Ms. Connie Bauder, Petty Road, indicated a brochure had been circulated in the newspapers the past weekend entitled, “Public Health Guide To Emergency Planning and Ready Together New Jersey”.  Ms. Bauder indicated in the book it stated if anyone had specific questions about specific health emergencies they should contact their local Health Department and representatives will have up-to-date information about diseases, etc.  Ms. Bauder’s concern was if Cranbury Township had information available, should individuals follow those instructions.  Mayor Beauregard responded that everything has to be routed through Middlesex County Health Department and the Township does, in fact, have an Emergency Management Office, headed by the Chief of Police.  Ms. Bauder also mentioned, regarding signage in the park, in the newsletter the rules were listed for the parks and she did not see anything mentioned about a permit required for groups of 15 or more.  Ms. Bauder spoke in particular about the Women’s Club having The Easter Egg Hunt and a group of men being in the park at the same time and having to ask them to leave due to The Easter Egg Hunt.  Ms. Bauder recommended when a group has the park reserved a sign be placed on the field indicating that it was reserved.  Ms. Stave recommended the signage should include language indicating for groups over a certain number, a permit would be required. 

 

Ms. Stave spoke concerning use of the Gourgaud Gallery and the Arts Review Committee’s role.  Ms. Stave recommended deleting the recommendation that one member must be an “art historian.  Ms. Stave reported she had received an e-mail from Mr. Virgadamo, indicating the Arts Review Committee members had been concerned about security in the Gallery and asked for a bell to be installed on the door so staff would be aware of individuals going in and out of the Gallery.  Ms. Stave consulted with Fred Carr and responded to Mr. Virgadamo it should not be  the responsibility of the staff to guard the space and a bell would be very disruptive to staff .  Ms. Stave also asked that some thought be given to how the Township wants the space to be used—exclusive to the Arts Review Committee exhibitions or for Township uses as well.  Ms. Stave requested this issue be on a future agenda.  There being no further comments, the Mayor closed the public part of the meeting.
