Reconvene Workshop meeting of 3-31-09, tonight at 7pm. It will be followed by another Workshop meeting. After which the Regular Borough Council meeting will be held. A rather ambitious Agenda for one evening. Without political posturing, we look forward to seeing the Workshops move quickly and the Borough Council making progress.
Will the Council continue with the Police Dept. Budget as the Chief wasn't feeling well at the last Special Meeting? We look forward to hearing what cuts the Police Dept. could make, if any.
Workshop agenda highlights:
An ordinance introduction to exceed the Municipal Budget Appropriation limits and to establish a Cap Bank.
2009 Budget Introduction for the fiscal year.
Hooray! At long last Matawan will be discussing and voting on a Resolution to retain a Part Time Business Administrator. With our current Budget constraints....a good move!
Property Maintenance Ordinance - For all of the residents who maintain their property, we are assuming (hopefully not like the Bad News Bears movie) this ordinance will enforce and/or create guidelines for property owners to follow. We all are tired of property owners who let their property become storage bins for their junk/garbage.
Extension of 4 day work week
Employee Time Records
General discussion on Recreation Ordinance
Gas & Municipal Vehicles Usage
Council Meeting Agenda
Resolution to Retain Part-Time Business Administrator
Resolution Honoring our Troops and "Support our Troops Day"
Resolution for the Borough of Matawan for a Regional Feasibility Study Grant
Mill Road Sewer Extension (finally)
Bond Ordinance providing an appropriation of $200,000. for Improvements to the Water Treatment Plant. Issuance of $200,000. Bonds or Notes of the Borough for Financing Part of the Appropriation.
It appears that the Council is making progress. Can't help but wonder what Matawan could have accomplished had we not had to make up for the Budget deficits of the last few years. Oh well......
Hope to see you at the meeting......
