Mr. Blood spoke about the different spaces that will

utilizing each space. Mr. Blood stated
that 18,500 is the total square footage of the proposed DPW facility. In addition to the 18,500 square feet in the
building, there is also going to be 3,200 square feet of additional storage
outside to keep sanitation trucks in during the winter months. Mr. Blood stated
that with the Council’s approval, he would like to move forward and begin
preparing the final docu- mentation and bid specifications over the winter so

building would be visible from the road.
Mr. Blood stated no.

anything back from the NJDEP regarding the well. Mr. Kobylarz stated we are pursuing that with
the NJDEP and looking at the well records and collecting data at this point.

Architectural on the design, while Mr. Kobylarz has been working with Suburban
Engineering on the site plans.
Councilman Hall asked about shared services with the

school to sign an agreement with the town for shared services to utilize this
Mr. Kobylarz stated there would be a separate access
to the recycling center from the new DPW building and plenty of parking spaces
for employees, visitors and handicap spaces available.
Mr. Kobylarz stated another building is being planned
for storage. The pitch of the area
should be sufficient so no drains or piping have to be installed and the runoff
should run directly into the detention basin.

a buffer and a large portion of the wooded property is also part of the site
Councilman Smith asked Mr. Kobylarz if the Township

Olsen has been in contact with Rick Blood and she has had ponding in her
driveway for over 15 years. Ms. Olsen
passed out pictures to Council to show them the ponding taking place in her
driveway. In the late 1990’s her
driveway became a lake and at the time the Township stated it would take care
of it and nothing has ever happened. Ms.
Olsen wants the township to repave the road in front of her house so she does
not get ponding in her driveway any more.
Ms. Olsen stated it turns into a sheet of ice in the winter and it is
Blood stated that in about two weeks they will be out paving LeJay Court and at that time they will go
to Ms. Olsen’s property to raise the apron of her driveway and that should

are not sure if they will be going through with using the state or the municipality’s
fee structure. Mr. Raths stated that the

feet of the roadway under the state contract.
Mr. Raths stated that under a technology grant, the Township may be able
to gain some monetary contribution if they enter into a municipal
Rilee stated we should try and get the shortest term possible on the Agreement
with the cable company. Mr. Raths stated
that the shorter the term, the less the cable company is willing to provide.
Hall stated that the on-line
registration project started about five months ago to allow residents to
register their children for recreation activities. The program went on line last week and he has
received a lot of accolades and wants to thanks Dave Stierli and Lisa Palmieri
for their hard work. As of this date over $5,000 of income has been acquired by
using the on-line registration.
Hall stated he also attended a Board of Education Shared Services meeting with
Mr. Raths and Mayor Ciaramella. The
meeting was about Government Strategies Group and the ability to apply for a
grant to see if it is feasible to combine facilities. The grant may be issued as early as
December. Mr. Raths stated he did
include a cost analysis in Council’s packet.
Hall asked Mr. Raths if we started the Eyland Avenue Phase V project and when
we can expect the paving of East
Mapledale Avenue, which is part of the bike
path. Mr. Raths stated that it is a
private roadway and not a Township road.
Mr. Raths stated that it would not be paved as part of the Eyland Avenue
Phase V project since the Township does not own the road. Sometime in the near future, Kuiken Brothers
will be turning the road over to the Township.
Mayor Smith stated that EDC has a meeting this Thursday with the Master Plan
Committee to discuss Route 46.
Mayor Smith stated there was a Water/Sewer Committee meeting last Friday
regarding phosphorus levels and new regulations and we will be receiving a
proposal from Hatch Mott on a plant audit for the Ajax Plant that is being
required from Trenton. Mr. Smith further stated that we might even
have to change some of our sewer ordinances to meet the new regulations. Mr.
Smith stated he also has some developments to discuss pertaining to the DEP,
which will be discussed at a later date in an Executive Session.
Mayor Smith also stated that the Villages applied for an ESDW application with
the Bureau of Safe Drinking Water. They
are moving from Orben Drive
to Shippenport Road
with the main water line.
DeFillippo stated that the on-line registration is a great addition and she has
done it and it is very useful and works
great. The next EDC meeting is scheduled
for October 4, 2007. A seminar entitled Securing
Your Business From Crime and beautification awards will be handed out. More than 1 award will be handed out this
year. Mr. Raths stated the categories

Street Street Scaping meeting is October 10,
2007. A sub committee meeting kick-off
regarding the number of bricks and miniature clocks to be sold to raise money
will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2007.
DeFillippo commented on the Water/Sewer Committee meetings are overwhelming and
a lot of statistical information and the testing will cost the municipalities a
lot of money.
DeFillippo also reminded Council that the next Neighborhood meeting is Tuesday,
October 16, 2007 at Shippenport Road at 7:00pm Company #2 Fire House.
DeFillippo also mentioned a program entitled Alive at 25 that was held
at Randolph High School working in conjunction with
the Police Department and their School Board. Ms. DeFillippo stated the program
spoke about the dangers of teen drivers.
Ms. DeFillippo stated that it was mandatory for parents to attend this
program with their Senior Students if they wanted the privilege of being
allowed to park their vehicles in the school parking lot. Ms. DeFillippo would like to see Roxbury take
a more aggressive role with the teenage drivers here in town.
Hall stated that Ms. DeFillippo has raised this issue a few times and maybe we
can reach out to Randolph
and ask them to send us materials to have our Chief of Police look over the
information. Mr. Raths stated he would
pass along the information to Chief Noll once he receives it from Ms.
DeFillippo or Mr. Hall.
Zoschak commented that a meeting was held with the DOT on the Route 206

better and more secure area. We are the
