PUBLIC PORTION

Jill Ribaudo

11 Jill Terrace, Succasunna

Ms. Ribaudo discussed a problem she has with her neighbor throwing branches and other yard waste over his fence, which abuts her property.  Ms. Ribaudo stated that, in addition to it being unsightly, the mulch and compost that has accumulated attracts wild animals and causes her yard to flood when it rains because the debris clogs the drainage system.  Mr. Schmidt and Mr. Behrens both stated that they visited the property and agreed that the piles of brush are unsightly.  Mr. Behrens also forwarded photographs of the yard waste to Mr. Raths and Mayor DeFillippo.  Ms. Ribaudo stated that she is thankful that the Health Department issued a Notice of Violation to the neighbor today, but she remains concerned that he will continue this practice.  Mr. Raths stated that yard waste is defined as litter by Township ordinance.  If the neighbor does not abate the situation within ten days, a complaint will be filed against him.  Mr. Raths discussed the services of the Community Dispute Resolution Panel who help resolve these types of problems.  Deputy Mayor Rilee suggested that Ms. Ribaudo wait and see if the neighbor corrects the problem within the ten-day time frame before involving the Panel.

 

Mr. Bryce advised Ms. Ribaudo that municipalities are limited in their ability to rectify private disputes and explained that a Township Council meeting is not the proper forum for addressing her concerns.

 

REPORTS OF COUNCIL LIAISON REPRESENTATIVES, COUNCIL COMMITTEES AND NEW BUSINESS/OLD BUSINESS

Mr. Schmidt stated that the Environmental Commission would like to follow the recommended actions and goals of the Sustainable Jersey certification program without actually registering through the program.  The Council members agreed that this would be a less costly method of accomplishing their objectives to "go green".

 

Mr. Schmidt stated that the NJ Environmental Federation met with members of the Roxbury Environmental Commission to discuss municipalities "going green".  One of the policies they?d like to see is a "No Idling" policy within the Township.  Mr. Schmidt stated that it is already in place with Township vehicles and that they would like to expand this voluntary policy to the schools.  The Council would like to see participation from the business community.  Members agreed that it might be helpful to have "No Idling" posted.

 

Mr. Smith stated that the Economic Development Committee is scheduled to meet on Thursday night.

 

Mr. Smith stated that the Economic Development Committee contacted Ms. Oakes, owner of Boulevard Scoops, after she attended the last Council meeting.  Ms. Oakes was invited to attend an EDC meeting to voice her concerns to them regarding Township policies on signage.

 

Mr. Smith stated that he attended a Morris County Economic Development Committee meeting.  He stated that he received material regarding Madison Borough?s EDC and that the Roxbury EDC would be looking at that information to get ideas about promoting our Economic Development Committee to prospective businesses.

 

Mr. Smith stated that there was no new information from the Sewer Committee, as there was no meeting held this month.

 

Mr. Smith stated that the Open Space Committee is hoping to have the closing on the Dufford property by the end of October.

 

Mr. Hall asked why we have not received a Letter of Interpretation for the McNear property yet.  Mr. Raths will contact the State and report back to the Council.

 

Mr. Smith received a copy of the current Open Space Plan.  Mr. Smith recommended that we consider hiring the Land Conservancy to draft an updated version.  Mr. Raths stated that we have received an estimate from the Land Conservancy and are awaiting receipt of a second proposal from Laura Szwak.

 

Mr. Behrens stated that he has been working with Mr. Raths regarding a few concerns from residents and expects resolutions to them within a week or two.

 

Mr. Hall stated that there was a Recreation Committee meeting this past week.  He stated that they are prepared to implement the initiative to conduct background searches on coaches and volunteers through the National Center for Safety.  The Township will only receive either a ?red light? or ?green light? response regarding each applicant.  The Township will not be privy to any information regarding a ?red light? response.  Mr. Hall stated that this will be a voluntary process until the necessary ordinances are adopted.

 

Mr. Hall stated that a group of residents have banded together to help with the plans to rebuild the ?Imagination Station? playground at Horseshoe Lake Park.  Many of the members of the group were also involved with the original project nineteen years ago.   They will have an informational booth at ?Olde Suckasunny Day?.  The current playground equipment will be removed in November, and the rebuilding of the new ?Imagination Station? is expected to begin in the spring.  Mr. Raths advised Council members that there will be press releases informing residents that this will be occurring and a large sign displaying the new equipment and the estimated date of completion once the old equipment is removed.

 

Mr. Hall stated that the Board of Education is in the process of reviewing the latest version of the Turf Field Agreement.

 

Mr. Hall stated that the ?Kick-Off Classic? soccer event is scheduled to take place this weekend.

 

Deputy Mayor Rilee discussed the refunding of the Affordable Housing Commercial Development Fees and speculated that we may not receive reimbursement from the State.  Deputy Mayor Rilee suggested sending a letter to the requestors explaining that we are waiting for clarification from the New Jersey League of Municipalities regarding this process before issuing refunds. Mr. Bryce advised Council members that the Township is required to refund the money whether the reimbursement comes to pass or not.

 

Deputy Mayor Rilee stated that Roxbury Township has met its COAH obligation and the application has been accepted.  Council members congratulated those whose efforts made this possible.

 

Deputy Mayor Rilee discussed the importance of the next step in the COAH process and adhering to the strict time lines.  Mr. Raths stated that, although there is a 45-day time line, the State has not sent up the draft legislation outlining the requirements needed to be in compliance.  Deputy Mayor Rilee emphasized the importance of keeping a record and copies of all correspondence to and from the State demonstrating our efforts.

 

Deputy Mayor Rilee discussed the recent ruling that seemed to imply that meeting the COAH obligation does not actually mean that the obligation has been met.  Mr. Bryce stated that the opinion that was being referenced is limited in its scope and was really saying that even if you have Substantive Certification, municipal land use laws still allow someone to seek variances to build high density housing in residential areas.  Mr. Bryce stated that this opinion was specific to a particular situation and does not believe that Roxbury?s COAH?s certification would be in jeopardy.
