the Hopatcong Commission with the State and, therefore, asked Mr. Bucco if this
could be a closed session item. Mr.
Bucco stated that this is not a closed session item. Mr. Bucco stated that he would review the
meeting details with Mayor Smith prior to the information being released to the

Investors Savings Bank
John W. Celmer
Third Vice President
275 Route 10 East
Mr. Agnoli distributed samples of the proposed sign design for the Arts Center
to the Council members. He stated that
their main concern is that their logo appears exactly as specified in their
corporate guidelines. The sign they are
proposing would have a white background with (their corporate) green lettering,
and their logo with the word “THEATER” underneath it. Mr. Agnoli stated that the actual size and
location of the sign on the building would be a Township decision. Mr. Bucco stated that a diagram of the sign
should be added to the agreement. Mr.
Bucco and the Council members discussed changes to the agreement that were
requested by the bank. Mr. Bucco stated
that he would be submitting suggested changes in the language of the contract
to the Council for their approval.

Township on the layout dimensions and specific design of the sign to be
included in the agreement. Mr. Smith
advised that the Roxbury Art Alliance would be before the Planning Board this
week. Mr. Rilee felt that it would be
beneficial to have Mr. Stern, the Township Planner, involved with the bank

conforming to our current numbers. Mr.

transportation, and employment opportunities.

pleased to see this project finally moving forward.
274 Emmans Road, Flanders
Mr. Kluska stated that he still believes that the Public Portion should
be in both the Regular Meeting and Workshop Meeting agendas.
Instead of having to change the Township ordinance on Workshop
meetings, Ms. DeCroce stated that, upon approval of the resolution at the
reorganization meeting, all council meetings, except the Budget Meetings, would
be Regular Meetings with two public portions.
Mr. Kluska asked about the extra railroad cars and trucks (with regard
to the transfer station on the rail line in Kenvil), as discussed at the last
Council meeting. Mr. Kluska asked which
roads would be impacted by the trucks and what routes they would be
traveling. Mayor Smith explained that
Deputy Freeholder Director Feyl had been under the impression that the Township
was seeking County Planning Board review, when, in fact, we wanted the Roxbury
Planning Board to review this. As a
result, Mr. Bonanni, County
Administrator, told Mayor
Smith that a letter would be forthcoming that would answer the Township’s
questions and the County will also give a courtesy presentation to the Roxbury
Township Planning Board.
Mayor Smith closed the public portion of the meeting.
