Workshop begins at 6pm. Public welcome to observe. Comments should be held until the open floor portion of the Borough Cuncil meeting.
Softballl Field - We noted the Girls Softball League Field is on the Agenda for the Workshop. If you care about the field come to the meeting and voice your preferences. Demand your Council build that field for your children. Otherwise, you will be allowing Councilman Mullaney, Malley, Bunyon, Mendes and Cannon to make the choice for you and your children. SILENCE EQUALS CONSENT!
A misleading letter to the Editor of the Courier (a known Democratic slanted weekly) from Councilman "Bud" Mullaney stating it would cost the Borough $21,000. for the softball field is an out and out lie. The Softball and Baseball League stated they would pay half which equates to $10,500. for the Softball field. Now we know because we were there as Councilman Mullaney was pushing to have a soil test done in Gravelly Brook Park for approximately $2500., which would be ONLY Phase One of Soil Preparation. Of course, Maser Consulting will be happy to oblige...never heard any business refuse a job. The reality is that soil testing for best results should be done after the ground thaws, not in the middle of Winter. Once again Councilman Mullaney has no problem spending tax dollars for what he wants, when he wants it. Why would he send a letter to the Editor and intentially mislead residents? Good question....is it just a power play with no regard for the children? You be the judge!
Other items on the Workshop agenda are to discuss & review the Recreation Director position, discuss and review Recreation Commission Ordinance, Train Station Parking, discuss Matawan Poice Chief's request for a Lt. and Sgt. tests.
Borough Council Meeting Agenda - Edgewater Drive Parking Ordinance is scheduled for a vote.
Advertise to accept Request for Proposals for Fire Dept. euipment needs assessment.
Are you kidding me? Why not just ask the Fire Department Chief? This is a waste of time and money. Will this be another Beacon Study Report that will be paid for and disregarded by the Majority of the Council? What will this Study cost, well guess we will have to attend the meeting to find out.
Hope to see you at the meeting....
