MOTION CARRIED


Joe Mecsey – Fire Chief – Stated that a suggestion was made of phasing the firehouse,
with building bays first and then build administrative. He stated that the Fire Company is
not in favor of this idea. He stated that with bidding procedures the bays could not be
completed before winter. Also, he informed that the Fire Company purchased an Aerial
Fire Truck for $5,000, from Hawthorne Township. He said that they might have to put in
another $10,000 to repair and have the truck certified. He is hoping to have the truck in
operation by mid-September.

Dan Perez – President – GTRC – Asking Committee to vote yes on the Recreation fields.
Stated that we need these fields. The town is growing, Recreation is over burdened, we
need these new fields. The original price was $2.9 million and went down to $2.25
million, and it now down to $1.9 million. There is no more to take away from these
fields. We have cut everything we can cut. To vote no is a slap in the face to the people
that work so hard on the Recreation programs.

Phil Bissonnette - 21 Leah Lane – Stated that he is a member of the Recreation
Commission. Also asking the Committee to vote yes on the Recreation fields. He said
that the decision made tonight will have a long term effect on the recreation programs of
the township. He said that the Recreation fields are a perfect opportunity to make
revenues for them from the snack stand.

Mike Boures – 1919 Gary Road – Stated that when he was here a couple of months ago,
the Committee voted and agreed to$2.2.million. Questioned why are we voting again on
this. Committeewoman Pasquarelli stated that the vote taken in September was an
interim vote. She agreed to the scope of the project but that the vote taken was not a vote
for capital planning. She was okay with it as a cost estimate to scope out the project.
Committeeman Marchetta stated that he sent out a newsletter to the residents last year
informing that the Committee voted and approved the Recreation complex. Mr. Boures
also stated that the roadway should be paved not gravel that there is going to be
tournaments held there.

Warren Corman - 1306 Brian Circle – Stated that he is in support of this project. Bottom
line we need to get this project started. Forks Township started small and built from
there. One of the reasons people live in this community and like living here is because of
the things in this community. He hopes the Committee votes yes.

Rosemarie Martin – 1122 Monroe Drive – Stated that she is a on Recreation, is a coach
and a parent. He lived in the community for 5 years and has seen this community
explode. Appealed to the 4 community members informing that the community wants
this project. Vote as representatives of your neighbor, community wants and needs this
project.

Steve Harth – Thomas Stewart Way – Stated that he agrees that we need a township
center, rec fields, municipal complex, etc. Wants to know what the tax impact these
projects will be to the residents. Stated that the School district has been reclassified and
state aid will change, concerned about the tax impact. Stated that if the Committee is
having difficulty in making a decision, let the residents decide. On another note,
informed that more bombing took place in London. In Jersey City recently there was a
bomb treat. He requested the Committee to review our plans and make that the
procedures are in place. Confident first responders will do their job.

Jim Turk - Kinney Circle – Asked for the Committee to vote yes for the recreation
complex. Stated that the Township has been classified as an I District and it is not going
to take effect until the State reevaluates the funding formula. If Phillipsburg loses their
aid it would be phased through 4 years. Tuition payments are capped at 3% by Statute.
His son Dwayne asked if the Committee would add a skate park to the Recreation fields.

Chris Luke 415 – Thomas Stewart Way - Stated that the presentation was made July 14th
with the showing the changes made to arrive at the $1.9 million. Based on the feedback
the figure was once again revised to $2.0 million. He urged the Committee to vote and
approve this project and move forward with it.

Dan Perez – GTRC President - Recreation members spoke to a large member of parents
involved in the rec program. He sent out over 1,000 emails asking people to come to
meeting tonight. He received many responses in favor of the fields. The older citizens in
this town are for the fields. This is for everyone in the town with a walking path,
pavilion, playground. It is for everyone.

Dominic Esposito – 24 Leah Lane – Stated that this is the first meeting he has attended
since he left the Committee. He informed that since he left he has been involved with the
recreation programs as a coach. He stated that while he was on the Committee himself
and Committeewoman Pasquarelli did everything they could to get these fields. He stated
that the issue here maybe not the fields, money can be an issue. He informed that we
need these fields. Asking the Committee to put politics aside, we need for everyone to get
along and bury the nonsense going on and get this project approved.

OTHER BUSINESS
Mayor Visconti

      Bond Ordinance
             Next Steps

Mayor Visconti that the Committee looked at a 7 million bond ordinance, roughly
500,000 is being used right now towards the Greenwich Street Bike Path, South Main
Extension. We are also looking at the firehouse and also the recreation fields. He
commented on the recreation fields portions which is has been reduced from 2.25 million
to 1.9 million. There was a presentation made at the last meeting regarding the reduction
and there was good feedback to Greg Vanderwright and he went back and incorporated
the suggestions and modification were made. Because of the modifications made the cost
has changes from 1.9 million to 2.015 million. The Committee was provided with a cost
information spreadsheet to review and ask any questions regarding the costs.
Committeewoman Emiliani questioned that there is a grant of $400,000 and she didn’t
not see that listed. Committeewoman Pasquarelli stated that there is nothing listed about
fundraising. Mayor Visconti stated that the Ad-Hoc Recreation Committee has been
working since September 2003 into grants. Also the $400,000 is a Green Acres Loan.
Committeewoman Emiliani stated that when you borrow for the entire amount there is no
call to action to get fundraising in place. Committeewoman Pasquarelli questioned if the
Committee agreed to say 2 million what portion of this funded by something other than
borrowing.

                                                                                  7:30 P.M.

She suggested that a portion of this project could be funded other than borrowing. Mayor
Visconti stated at this point we are looking to borrow, but if grants are obtained we can
utilized the money to payoff the debt. She questioned whether Recreation was going to
fundraise for the items that were previously removed. Dan Perez stated that Steve Babula
previously stated that Recreation will go and fundraise for the things that were taken off
the original proposal. Committeewoman Pasquarelli stated that she started working on
this project 8+ years ago and it is going through the community that she is not supportive
of this project, this is misleading. She always supported this project she was one of the
people that made the original contact with Mrs. Hamlen over the land and initiated it. She
said that the issues have been in planning for capital projects is what are we going to
build, how much is it going to cost, how is it going to get funded and what is the timing
of it. That is what the issues have been and are still. She has reviewed the plan and at
this point no further cuts can be made, nor can it be phased in. She said that the
pedestrian path should be done through fundraising. She is ready to commit in starting
this project next spring and borrowing in an appropriate time frame to do it.
Committeeman Blaszka stated previously we requested the bond attorney to provide the
information regarding funding and bonding and you didn’t want to do it. He stated that
interest rates are increasing. He stated that he doesn’t want to wait until the interest rates
go up and then bond. Mayor Visconti stated that he wants to find out where everyone
stands. Committeeman Marchetta stated we should not tie one project to the other at this
point. Now, with everything going on, the redesign of the firehouse, hopefully the
firemen are okay with the plan, but there is a chance that they are not. This could go
longer than expected, which he hopes not. We can no longer tie the Recreation fields
project with the Firehouse project and look at bonding them together. He suggested that
we borrow the money separately. Committeeman Blaszka stated that we have two
professionals, the CFO and the Bond Attorney regarding the funding. He stated that we
should take his advice on what to do. Committeewoman Pasquarelli stated that you want
to make a decision before the financial plan is in place. She stated that she is committed
to doing this project, but she is not going to vote to borrow money for this project until a
financial plan is in place. Also, until the cost of the firehouse is determined we can not
borrow money for projects.

Committeewoman Pasquarelli made a motion, seconded by Committeeman
Marchetta to agree to move forward on building the recreation complex as outlined
in the email from Finelli Consulting on July 19th.
