PUBLIC PORTION
On a motion by Calandrillo, seconded by Kelly, the meeting was open to the public at 8:02PM. All in favor. Motion carried.

Mr. Allan Kidd of 111 Miller Road questioned the information his father, Mr. Albert Kidd had requested concerning the lease and amount of rent being currently charged for the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue. Mr. Kidd stated he submitted an Access to Government Records Form to the Municipal Clerk delineating this request, and he was subsequently told by the Municipal Clerk that there was no lease available for viewing on the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue.

Mr. Kidd asked the Business Administrator how much rent the Township was collecting for the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue. The Business Administrator said the Municipal Clerk had advised him that the current rent for the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue is $200.00 per month, with the tenant paying all other expenses, utility, maintenance, and repair.

Mr. Kidd was outraged at the Township’s rental fee for the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue and offered Richter $250.00 per month rent on the property. Richter stated this was the first she had heard of this issue, and she reserved the right to discuss this issue with Council and Administration prior to any further comments. Mr. Kidd cautioned Council to investigate Administration’s financial practices.

Mr. Steve Tsotsoros of 600 Wyckoff Avenue stated the Tax Map had not been corrected by the County yet. The Township Attorney stated he would advise the Township Engineer of the problem.

Mr. Tsotsoros complained about the Township’s 75 cent per copy charge.

Mrs. Karen Stowes of 85 Malcolm Road asked Council to please come to a resolution with regard to her property.

On a motion by Kelly, seconded by Calandrillo, the meeting was closed to the public at 8:18PM. All in favor. Motion carried.

2005 MUNICIPAL BUDGET AMENDMENTS #1 AND #2

On a motion by Kelly, seconded by Calandrillo, the meeting was opened to the public at 8:19PM. All in favor. Motion carried.

Mr. John D’Angelo of 2 Romopock Court stated he had concerns over the economy being weak, and the possibility of no revenues being available to support the Township projects.

Mr. Steve Tsotsoros of 600 Wyckoff Avenue stated it might be wise to terminate our Police Department and utilize the State Police for the Township’s needs in order to save money.

Mr. Tsotsoros further stated the Bridge at Continental Soldiers Park was unnecessary and a waste of money.

The Business Administrator stated the increase in the Capital portion of the budget was due to the inclusion of $1.2 Million that would be offset by the $1.2 Million in Seized Funds in revenue.

Mr. Allan Kidd of 111 Miller Road asked the Business Administrator why $1.4 Million is only listed in Capital Improvements when the Township is allocating $2.4 Million to build the new Police Station. The Business Administrator stated the Township would be appropriating $1.2 Million and the new Police Station would cost $1.6 Million at present, not $2.4 Million.

Mr. Kidd asked Roth what the figure was that he cited for the Proposed Police Addition. Roth stated the amount he had cited was a “project number” which included the Proposed Police Department Addition and other aspects of the entire project, not just the building. According to Roth, the Business Administrator was citing a number figure for the building alone. Roth believed his original estimate for the whole project was between $2.4 and $2.6 Million. Mr. Kidd stated $2.4 or $2.6 Million spent on a Police Department Addition at this time is not appropriate for the Township due to the budgetary crisis.

Mr. Kidd stated although the Township has to give the Library $1.7 million it does not have to fund the building, maintenance, and other various operating expenses. Mr. Kidd asked Council to look into this possibility.

Mr. Kidd stated during the Budget Hearings most Department Heads hesitantly stated they could tighten their budgets if required. Mr. Kidd stated Council should readdress this with the Department Heads and tighten the budget in order to conserve Township Funds and keep the Tax Rate down.

Mr. Kidd asked the Business Administrator if he could forecast next year’s Tax Rate. The Business Administrator said no.

Mr. Fred Silber of 618 Blue Ridge Lane brought up the Days of Absence Accumulated and theneed to “use or lose” their days of absence.

Mr. Silber stated the 10% rate of Uncollected Taxes is outrageous.

Mr. Silber stated Pay Roll Costs should not rise, as it is unfair to the Tax Payer.

Mr. Silber asked if recycling is required by law, and if it is not, for Council to consider doing away with it and save $1 Million.

Mr. Silber stated there was a problem with “money in – money out” in the Township, and it is an Administrative issue that needs to be taken care of. Mr. Silber said if it is not taken care of, the Township will drive out all the retired residents due to the high Tax Rate.

Mr. Lou Guarneri of 128 Mac Leish Court questioned the lack of Line Items in the Budget. Richter informed Mr. Guarneri that the Council uses a large Budget Book that has each Line Item listed.

Mr. Tori Petro of 7 Dogwood Court stated the Sewers are working great and thanked Council and Administration for this.

Mr. Petro asked the Business Administrator how high the Tax Rate would be this year. The Business Administrator said as it stands if Mr. Petro took his 2004 Tax Bill and increased it by 7.9 that would be his new Tax Bill.

The Business Administrator gave a brief overview of the Capital Budget for Mr. Petro.

Mr. Petro asked if the Debt Services would be an increase of $1.2 Million. The Business Administrator said yes.

Mr. Petro asked about the reserve for uncollected taxes and how the Township tolerates people who do not pay their taxes. The Business Administrator gave a brief overview of the uncollected tax process and stated if Tax Offenders do not pay their taxes the property goes up for a Tax Sale. The reserve is maintained by the Township incase taxes are not paid.

Ms. Lisa Russo of 6 Greene Street stated she has a real problem with the traffic as a result of the construction in her area. Ms. Russo wondered why the Police were not patrolling her area better. Ms. Russo asked what happened to the Seized Funds. Richter stated $1.2 Million would be going to the Police Addition, and the balance would be appropriated for items outside of the budget for the Police Department.

Ms. Kathy Murray of 88 Bridle Path Lane asked why the Township was paying the School and County Taxes for delinquent Tax Payers. Ms. Murray did not understand why the County and School could not wait for their taxes like the Township has to. The Business Administrator stated once the property is sold, the Township stands to make more money.

Ms. Murray stated the Budget is very poor, and it is due to the carelessness of the budget process. Ms. Murray stated Council has no idea where the Township’s money is going.

Ms. Murray stated the lights are left on constantly in the Township Sports Fields.

Ms. Murray was disappointed to see the School Budget not pass. Ms. Murray felt it was because the School Budget is the only way residents can vent their feelings about how the

Page 5

Township manages their money. Ms. Murray stated she would like the Municipal Budgets become a public vote.

Mr. Howard Miller of 18 Great Hall Road thanked Council for their service to the Township. 7.9% on the total Tax Rate this year indicates the Township will realize higher and higher Tax Increases unless cuts are made. Mr. Miller stated he will put his home up for sale as he has lost confidence in the Council and Administration.

Mr. Timothy Slade of 1058 Ramapo Valley Road stated Council had a choice to either represent the Township Employees, or the Tax Paying Residents. Mr. Slade stated a vote for the budget as presented is a vote for Township Employee’s not its Tax Payers. Mr. Slade asked Council to contemplate his statement, “Who do you represent?”

Mr. Albert Kidd of 851 Darlington Avenue stated the Township Funds have been mismanaged, and the Company Number 1 Firehouse Project was a huge waste of $1.5 Million.

Mr. Kidd stated the $3.5 Million for the property on Ridge Road should not have been bonded until the Airmount Avenue Property sold. Mr. Kidd stated the Township also owns 12.5 acres on the Ramapo River that apparently can not be used for children even though it was previously made use of by the Polo Club. Mr. Kidd could not understand why this property could not be utilized by the children of the Township.

Mr. Kidd stated the Business Administrator was at fault for making statements about Salt Piles being covered when they were not. Mr. Kidd also stated the Business Administrator should have made sure the lights in the Township fields were not left on unnecessarily.

Mr. Kidd stated the $125,000.00 for the Foot Bridge at Continental Soldiers Park was a waste of money.

Mr. Kidd wanted to know why rent was currently at a ludicrous rate of $200.00 per month for the Township property on East Ramapo Avenue.

Mr. Kidd warned residents that the next major project they would have to pay for would be a new Department of Public Works Building, and subsequently asked Council, “Who do you represent?”

Mr. Christopher Cox of 9 Sargent Court referred to a year old Home and Store News article stating Township Tax Payers enjoyed 12 years of no tax hikes. Mr. Cox stated during the last two years there have been monumental Tax Hikes. Mr. Cox said Council is pricing the residents out of the Township due to approving extreme Tax Hikes.

Mr. Cox questioned the need for 56 Police Officers in the Township. Mr. Cox stated the the Township’s wants needed to be balanced by the Township’s needs.

Mr. Larry Bear of 95 Tam-O-Shanter Road stated to the Mayor that it was intolerable that the Township’s taxes have risen so drastically over the past few years. Mr. Bear said the Township has an obscene Tax Hike Record, and it should not be tolerated. Mr. Bear called for transparency in the Township Budget.

Richter left at 9:05PM.

Kelly took the Chair.

Mr. Richard Silvia of 822 Darlington Avenue stated he had been in Municipal Government for 35 years, and the Mayor and Council have been imprudent in their spending practices. Mr. Silvia stated the County has had to cut back on their Budget, and the Township should do so as well.

Ms. Lisa Russo of 6 Green Street asked if the Budget was a “done deal”, and if the residents had any influence on the outcome of the Budget. Kelly quoted Yogi Berra stating, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Ms. Russo asked what the next step would be. Kelly stated Council would discuss this at the end of the Public Session.

Richter returned at 9:13PM.

Mr. Fred Silber of 618 Blue Ridge Lane stated he was a Certified Public Accountant and the Budget, as it stands, does not make financial sense to him.

Mr. Silber stated the Township should do away with Recycling.

Mr. Silber stated it was unconscionable for Council not to provide sufficient answers tonight for the public concerning the Budget.

Mr. Peter Cassotis of 107 South Mahwah Road stated no one is happy about the budget; however, the public who have attended this meeting to complain should have attended the Public Budget Sessions in January, February and March, as he had, and voiced their disapproval.

On a motion by Kelly, seconded by DiGiulio, the meeting was closed to the public at 9:15PM. All in favor. Motion carried.

On a motion by Kelly, seconded by Alderisio Amendments #1 and #2 of the 2005 Municipal Budget were opened for Council Discussion.

Kelly read the 2005 Municipal Budget Summary of Changes for the Public Record. The 2005 Municipal Budget Summary of Changes are attached to, and made part of these minutes.

DiGiulio asked if Council would be voting on each line separately, or in total. Richter stated in total. DiGiulio stated the removal of the Department of Public Works Employees, the cut to the Senior Center of $5,000.00, and the cut to the Recreation Department of $8,000.00 would need to be removed from the Amendment, or she would vote no.

DiGiulio stressed Operating Expenses are services to the people, and the people will miss them if they are gone.

Alderisio stated the Budget was behind as it is, and the vote should be on everything at once and not delay the Budget Process anymore.

Roth stated Council needed to vote on the Amendments as a whole, and move on.

Kelly asked for a legal opinion from the Township Attorney. The Township Attorney stated the Budget was already beyond the deadline for adoption.

Calandrillo stated she did not vote for the original proposal because she could not agree to a 6% cut across the board. Callandrillo stated she is more comfortable with this Amendment and the Budget should be voted on as a package.

Kelly stated he did not want to comment on the Budget; however, Council needed to move forward on this Budget. Kelly said Council needed to look towards January 2006 for more positive changes in the Budget Process. Richter concurred.

Paton stated there will be no jobs lost at the Department of Public Works; positions were being removed by attrition. Paton stated he wanted to make the residents aware the Hotel Tax is up, and it should generate $250,000.00 in additional revenue.

Paton stressed the need to apply for Extraordinary Tax Aid immediately. Paton asked Administration to address this at once.

Paton was annoyed that he had to find out about the Police Department recently receiving a new vehicle as a gift in the newspaper.

Paton stated the employee that is in the Senior Center should remain there and not in Planning and Zoning. Paton said he would vote no on this Budget Amendment.

DiGiulio asked if the money is appropriated for this. The Business Administrator stated there is money available for this project.

Kelly had concerns with regards to residents with drainage issues. Kelly stated this needs to be looked at as a “package” with regard to the Cragmere Section Drainage Issues and we can not have “spot-helping” with regards to drainage issues. Richter concurred, and further stated these issues needed to be budgeted for.

Calandrillo stated 85 Malcolm Road is an unusual case due to the fact that the drainage is coming into the home.

Alderisio asked if the condemnation process is less expensive then running a new drainage line across the property. Alderisio stated he supports the condemnation process.
