Mr. Raths discussed having credit cards in the court and that they are pursuing this with Ms. Palmieri, Chief Financial Officer and Mr. Kuncken, Information Technology Director and it will be part of the budget proposal.  Mayor Schmidt stated that approximately $560,000 of uncollected funds is due to the Court.  Mr. Raths stated this amount is over the lifetime of the Court. 


Councilman Rilee stated that of the $563,000 that is owed to the Courts that we would end up paying roughly 1.5% ? 2%  to the credit card company.  Mr. Raths stated that there is a system now that charges $3.00 per payment and the other option is for us to do the processing ourselves instead of over the internet.


Councilman Smith stated that he believed that Mr. Kobylarz in Engineering would first look at the sidewalk on Reger Road.  Mr. Hall stated we should carefully look into this.  Councilwoman DeFillippo questioned if we have a list of areas where we could use sidewalks, not repair them.  Mr. Raths stated he believes we do and our top priority area is the Lincoln/Roosevelt School to Main Street in Succasunna.  Also by Corn Hollow Road to Jefferson School.  Mr. Raths stated he can put a list together for where sidewalks are needed in the town.

Dennis Wine

4 Holly Drive



Mr. Wine stated he was looking at Ordinance 26-06 on Page 6 of the Agenda and noticed that the Fire Department President appoints members of the board and wants to know who is in charge of whom.  Mr. Bucco stated that there is no Fire Department President and that there will be a correction made to that section of the Ordinance.  Mr. Bucco stated that each Fire Company would do the appointing.  The Committee makeup will go from five (5) to eleven (11).


Mr. Wine also  had a question on page 7 of the Agenda.  Mr. Bucco stated that in Roxbury Township?s form of government the Manager, Mr. Raths, has the ultimate authority as the Public Safety Director  and renders the  final decision.  Mr. Bucco stated it is not necessary to have it in the Ordinance but  it wouldn?t hurt to add it so  that there is no question as to who  makes  the final decision.


Mr. Wine also commented on page 9 of the Agenda  regarding the appointment of the Fire Police.  He asked if they will have a valid driver license prior to the date of appointment.  Mr. Wine is concerned about the wording because it states ?prior to the date of appointment.?  Mr. Bucco stated he would change the wording to include ? to have a valid drivers license at the time of appointment and time of service.?



A.      Renewal County Lease with Morris and Erie Railroad ? Mr. Raths stated that the lease with the Morris & Erie Railroad comes up in the year 2007 and he will ask the County via a letter to look at issues and concerns and make sure to send a draft letter for Council to review before being mailed out.  Mr. Smith stated he had a conversation with three different Freeholders about one year ago and not one of them were aware of any problems that Roxbury Township had with the Morris and Erie Railroad and that we really do need to lobby our representatives so they know what is going on.

Mr. Zoschak questioned the Chief of Police and the Fire Department who were present at the meeting if they had any objections to this Ordinance.  There were no objections.


Mr. Zoschak questioned the Fire Department also about a five mile radius from the Township of Roxbury in order to be a member of the Roxbury Township Fire Department and if we ever had any members that are within a five miles of Roxbury. 


Mr. William Egbert, Chairman of the Resolution Committee stated that yes they do have members that no longer live in the Township of Roxbury, but have moved out and were trained and the 5 mile radius is a fair compromise.  Mr. Zoschak stated that his concern is a Firefighter traveling on the roads for five miles with their blue light on with all the heavy traffic.  Mr. Egbert stated that in some instances it actually takes Firefighters living in the town longer to get where they are going.  Mr. Bucco stated that more towns are going to a radius outside of their borders to have a sufficient amount of coverage.    Mayor Schmidt questioned how many members are in this five-mile radius.  Mr. Egbert stated that he could not answer that at this moment.  Mr. Egbert stated that there is a provision in the Ordinance that grandfathers existing firemen that do not meet the five-mile radius.


Mr. Bucco stated there is a mistake on page 6 of the Agenda.  There is no Fire Department President as is stated on page 6 of the  Ordinance.  Each Fire Company will appoint their own Captain with at least five years of experience and the Board should be increased from five (5) members to eleven (11) members in total.


Mr. Bucco also stated that a change needs to be made on page 7 of the  Ordinance.   The Ordinance at viii should now state, ?the decision of the board of inquiry may be appealed to the Township Manager by the aggrieved party.  The Manager?s decision on appeal shall be final and binding.?


Councilman Hall questioned Mr. Bucco if the Manager has to be involved in any firings or appeals.  If someone files an appeal to the Manager then yes he would be involved and his decision would be final.


A discussion took place  regarding the  Fire Police  and who has jurisdiction over a situation.  Council  questioned  the wording of this Ordinance.  Mr. Bucco stressed that the Fire Police Officer is under the ?supervision? of the Police Officer.


Adam Alberti, Chief of Fire Company #1 and Peter Braxton, Chief of Fire Company #3 stated that the Fire Department has an older crowd.  Mr. Alberti stated that the older fire fighters are mainly for directing traffic or crowd control.  Mr. Alberti stated he would have an operating guideline as to what the duty of the Fire Police Officer would be.


Chief Noll stated he has no problem with Ordnance 26-06.


Councilman Ciaramella questioned  Section 2-20.2, which states ?without compensation from the Township.?  Mr. Bucco stated that it means that they get no additional compensation for their appointment as Fire Police Officer ? it is strictly volunteer.


Councilwoman DeFillippo questioned if the Fire Police are eligible for LOSAP points ? Council stated yes, even though they are not compensated monetarily.


Councilman Hall questioned item k on page 4 of the  Ordinance.  Mr. Bucco stated that this wording comes out of the New Jersey Regulations for appointments to Fire Departments to ensure there is no discrimination.  Mr. Egbert added that the Roxbury Township Fire Department belongs to the New Jersey Firemen?s Association and being a member requires that any new member be approved by the governing body.  Mr. Bucco stated this is also for insurance coverage purposes.


Councilman Zoschak made a motion to move Ordinance 26-06 for introduction with the changes previously discussed.  Councilman Smith seconded the motion.

27-06  An ordinance authorizing the execution of a lease agreement between the Township of Roxbury and the Dialysis Center of Northwest New Jersey for use of certain real property and improvement location at 175 Righter Road, Succasunna, New Jersey.


Councilwoman DeFillippo questioned Mr. Bucco why we are changing the lease terms from 20 years to 30 years.  Mr. Bucco stated it was a change requested by the Dialysis Center and he sees no problem with that.


Mayor Schmidt questioned Mr. Raths if we are receiving an annual report from the Dialysis Center.  Mr. Raths stated not to his knowledge.  Mr. Bucco stated it is a statutory requirement.  Mr. Raths stated that he or Mr. Grisi, Health Officer would make sure they get the annual report.


Councilman Hall questioned Mr. Bucco on wording in the lease on page 2,  paragraph 3.  Mr. Bucco stated it was fine. Mr. Hall also questioned Mr. Bucco on page 3,  paragraph 5 and if the number listed is renegotiable in terms of insurance.  Mr. Bucco stated it is for general liability insurance only and the Township owns the building.


Councilman Rilee made a motion to move Ordinance 27-06 for introduction.  Councilman Ciaramella seconded the motion.
