Monday night’s special meeting to pass a resolution requesting the moving of the School Board electio date from May until the November general election is scheduled at 7 PM. The Agenda Setting Session is scheduled to start at 7:30 PM. Prior starting about 6:30 PM will be an Executive Session of the Council.
This is closed to the public. Some of the agenda items may provoke long discussions. If so both the regularly scheduled and special meetings will be delayed .
One item of the executive session, which will not be made public until the minutes are approvedis approval of a settlement(?) of an unknown action by NJEPO against the City for violations at the City Hall Annex, Public Works, and Police Hdqs.
.Another item that may delay the meeting to take place only in executive session is a discussion of the possibility of a violation of title 2 C of the criminal code and or title 4 A of the administrative code I.
There is still a Rice hearing scheduled which I believe to be at the requested of one of the principles involved in the WBLS. Incident. I know these items will not be open to public discussion until the minutes are released and certain elements sanitize .
It is anticipated that the special meeting to move the election date for the Board of Education will pass without any sustained discussion and then the regular agenda setting session will immediately convene.
The first item is a communication from the Mayor for appointments to the PMUA.… Of interests in this communication is the fact that she seems to have rewarded the the Commissioners who voted for the “excessive severance pay” to the former Director and Assistant Director of PMUA. Commissioner Brokaw was not reappointed and the Authority President Harold Mitchell was only reappointed as an alternate member of the board. Malcolm Dunn and Alex Tolliver presently on the board are reappointed. For a full- membership Wilbert Gill, and Cecil Sanders Jr at present an alternate member; would become new full members of the board. Sanders as an alternate voted in favor of the Golden Parachute. Remaining on the board is the mayor’s minister, Rev.Taylor
Under Discussion/Action items: a YMCA presentation on shared services, a proposed ordinance limiting hours of late night eateries., and a meeting with the commissioners of the PMUA. This may take some time.
Under Unfinished Businees is 10 minuites allotted for the status of the “ShotSpotters” and I am sure the cameras.
Interesting Resolutions include one authorizing the appointment of David Spaulding to serve as a public agency compliance officer. This is of interest because Mr. Spaulding authoring the resolution appointed himself which was approved by Director of Administration and Finance Restaino..
In view of Mr. Spaulding's role in the WBLS reimbursement affair that in the duties of the compliance officer this seems to be a unique proposition.
