Motion carried.

 Ira Weiner Esq., of Beattie Padavono inquired about Zoning Ordinance # 1653 on Health Clubs
 and Wellness Centers. He inquired about looking at the minutes from the meeting that discussed
 the introduction of the Ordinance and also any additional planning studies that are available to review in
opposition or support. He requested copy of the Ordinance. The Township Attorney said the Ordinance
                                                                                           1
will be on the agenda of the next Planning Board Meeting, then adopted at the first Public Meeting of
Township Council.

Mr. Joe Sinopoli of 184 Stephens Lane said he wanted to confirm with Council that the closure
of Olney Road was due to safety issues related to the characteristics and narrowness of the road.
Hermansen answered yes.

Mr. Sinopoli also questioned accident reports for Olney Road. He said the Mahwah Police
 Department has no records of summons or accidents for the past 3 years. Kidd said that
 it was not true. He has a report of an accident that occurred in the last few weeks
and referred to the accident on Olney and Miller Road where a car backed into another car.

Mr. Sinopoli asked if the ordinance gets passed would Council consider closing other roads
with the same characteristics and narrowness. Hermansen said that each street would be
considered on its own merit.

Mr. Sinopoli questioned if the ordinance is approved could he be the one to present issues to Council
for closing of other roads. Roth said it would be more appropriate if he lived on one of those
roads.

Mr. Sinopoli said he had asked question once before, why the Township used Rocciola
Engineering, who we paid, instead of using the Mahwah Police Department’s data and surveys
to study and record data.

Hermansen said the Judge said that the Township did not have our own study and needed an
independent evaluation from a traffic consultant in order to go forward with closing the road.

Mr. Sinopoli said in the judgement the information data from the Police Department was valued.
He wanted to know if it was an accurate statement. The Township Attorney said the Judge
felt the Traffic Consultant’s Report was not sufficient information.

Mr. John Kelly of 238 Miller Road gave an update on Mr. Ken DeFerrari. He is home, doing
well and improving. He thanks everyone for good wishes. Also, Mr. Gary Montroy is not home
but in the hospital.

On a motion by Roth, seconded by Alderiso, the meeting was closed to the public. All in favor.
Motion carried.

The Township Engineer said that the Change Order is an increase of $31,000 as a result of the
extension of the contract limits on MacArther Boulevard to Darlington Avenue.

The Business Administrator explained, that these were additional items based on tonnage in
the contract through the Northwest Bergen Cooperative Pricing Program. Additional items
that were not included were curb repair and sub surface repair work. These were not in the
basic contract but were requested. These items were already budgeted in the original amount.
Work is 99% completed and the Township intends to make Payment #1, which is not on Bills List,

Flood Insurance.

Scott Garrett’s office about the situation. He also talked to Mrs. Stein many times,
                                                                                        3

Engineer said actually it is time. Original estimate was provided in 2004 and

ORDINANCE – PUBLIC HEARING
The title of an ordinance was read as follows:
AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER VII OF THE TOWNSHIP CODE OF
THE TOWNSHIP OF MAHWAH TO LIMIT THE USE OF A SECTION OF
OLNEY ROAD TO VEHICLES UTILIZED FOR EMERGENCY, PUBLIC
UTILITY AND MUNICIPAL PURPOSES AND TO AMEND SUBSECTION ‘‘C’’
TO SCHEDULE ‘’VI’’ OF THE MUNICIPAL CODE

On a motion by Roth, seconded by Alderisio, the meeting was opened to the public.
All in favor. Motion carried.

Mr. Joe Sinopoli of 184 Stephens Lane said that on July 15, 2009 in the Villadom Times
Mr. DaPuzzo was quoted as saying that “There is enough evidence to move forward,”
referring to the road measurement by Roccioli Engineering.

Mr. Sinopoli questioned the difference in the measurements taken by the New Jersey
Department of Transportation and Roccioli Engineering. He said that the New Jersey
Department of Transportation’s measurements for Olney Road were 13.7 to 14.7
feet. The measurements for Olney Road from Roccioli Engineering were 16 to 17 feet.
Mr. Sinopoli said that DaPuzzo used Roccioli Engineering’s measurements to make
the statement and questioned why not the Department of Transportation’s
measurements.

Mr. Sinopoli said he would be willing to take measurements of the road if any of the
Council members would meet him there.

                                                                                         7
Kidd said there is reference in the deposition on Page 66 from Mr. Resica.

DiGuilio asked the correct width for a road. The Township Engineer replied 20 feet.

Mr. Sinopoli said that the Roccola Engineering Report says that in a residential zone with
4 homes the 16 feet is an acceptable standard. He also said, that the Ordinance does not
reflect that some members of the public disagree, which he feels should be added to
the Ordinance. Hermansen said that is not necessary as there will be a public hearing.

Mr. Sinopoli said that Ramsey is widening roads on Main Street and North Central
Avenue. He said the Borough of Ramsey utilized the Bergen County Engineering
Department to do the work. He asked can the Township use the Bergen County
Engineering Department versus Boswell to do the work. Alderisio and the Business
Administrator both replied that those are county roads and a county project.

Mr. Sinopoli said that these are tough economic times that affect everyone financially.
He asked does the town take into consideration what has been spent on Olney Road on
reports, lawsuits etc. Hermansen replied yes the Township is concerned about costs but
we are also concerned about safety issues for children and residents. He said we have to
do as a Council what is in best interest for the town.

Mr. Sinopoli said only one accident report in the past 3 years that is relevant data.

Hermansen said that is why the Engineer was hired.

Kidd asked is every road that is a 2 way street in Mahwah that is 16 feet or less not
safe. He referred to the train tressle by Airmont Avenue.

Mr. Sinopoli said that there are 8 roads in Mahwah that are less than 16 feet wide.

Hermansen said that this street was brought to our attention and if other streets are
brought to our attention we would deal with them at that point.

Mr. Gary Corrado of 30 Olney Road said that the road never should have been opened
and a clerical error occurred in the Master Plan, as the road was designed to be closed.
Mr. Corrado said when he bought his house his real estate broker asked the Township
and was told his street would be a no through street. He has been a resident for 13 years,
and the road has been closed for 10 years. He wants to get their street back. He wants his
 kids safe . He hopes that the Council will make the right decision to close the road.

Mrs. Ellen Sinopoli of 184 Stephens Lane said she has been living in her house for 12
years. She feels Stephens Lane is worse as people speed 60 mile an hour up and down
the street. When she bought her home she was told that it was going to be a cul-de-sac by
her real estate agent. There was a chain across the road. After 6 months the chain was
taken down. She questions what makes one street better than the other. She said people
coming from New York and the townhouses use her street. Hermansen said that Mrs.
Sinopoli must go to the county. Mrs. Sinopoli questioned why she has to go to the
county.

Mrs. Sinopoli said that they were both lied to. She feels it is not fair to do one street and
                                                                                                8
not the other. She requested the speed device be on her street. She said the device was on
the down side of the hill and it should be on the up side of the hill. Hundreds of tickets
given out on the street. Cops sit at the bottom and line the cars up in the morning and
pull them over. She would like a count of the tickets that are given out on Stephens Lane.
She feels she deserves the same rights as those living on Olney Road.

Alderisio said we are not closing Olney Road so that the children can play on the road.
He said we do not want children playing on any road. He said Stephens Lane is 3 car
lanes wide. Mrs. Sinopoli said that her street is 2 cars wide and you can barely get 2 cars
thru. She wants quality of life.

Alderisio said Olney Road was not meant to be opened.

Mrs. Sinopoli commented her street was not either. She said when she bought her land
the chain was there and the Real Estate Agent told her that the street would not be
opened. She said the county got disgusted because of vandalism so they opened it.

Mrs. Sinopoli said she can not open her front windows at night because of the cars
going up and down.

Alderisio said the police have been there and have given out summons.

Mr. Gary Gregorek of 1 Beverage Road has lived in town 25 years. He said the purpose
Of roads is for transportation. He said Alcott Road is a wide road and narrows down like
Olney Road and Snow Drive. He feels the money spent is ridiculous. He said
most people want the road open.

On a motion by Roth, seconded by Alderisio, the meeting was closed to the public. All in
favor. Motion carried.

DiGuilio said she wants clarification of the width of the road as it is right now, the
exact amount. The Township Attorney said the Engineer’s report says variable width
between 16 and 17 feet. The correct statement by the New Jersey Department of
Transportation has given the information of 13.7 – 14.7 feet.

DiGuilio said she wants the correct width of the road.

The Township Attorney said concern is that Council has enough information to make
a decision since the Engineer has said that a width of 16 to 17 is inadequate. It is not
acceptable for a road with thru traffic.

The Township Attorney said Council be rational in relying on that opinion. All
numbers could be correct depending on where the road was measured.

On a motion from Hermansen, seconded by DiGuilio, the meeting was opened to the
public. All in favor. Motion carried.

Mr. Joe Sinopoli said according to the Roccioli Report Page 3 Paragraph 5 says a short
narrow section of Olney Road north of Snow Drive would be a sub for area residents
allows road to have a 16 foot traveled way.
                                                                                           9
The Township Attorney said reading from a different paragraph, a neighborhood street
versus a through street is not acceptable from the report based on 16 to 17 feet width.

Alderisio said the street varies in widths in different spots so you can get 4 different
measurements.

On a motion by DiGuilio, seconded by Roth, the meeting was closed to the public and
amend the Ordinance.

Kidd interjected that he had questions and issues. He said when the Judge first heard the
Ordinance he said what the Township did was take a little of this and a little of that and
closed the road. He called the Council’s actions arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.
Kidd said that we are now going to potentially close the road, and Mr. Cabazas is going
to bring us back to court about this matter. We are going to go back to court with an
Engineer’s report that is unscientific, random and inadequate. He said the Police Chief
appears to think the same. The Engineer’s report that we are basing our decision on says
that the Engineer showed up for a 2 hour time period and counted cars for a little bit.
Kidd feels for the Township to go back to court and say that we hired an individual for
$2,500 for 2 hours and provide the report -- it is not going to go too far. He said when the
Council first passed the Ordinance, the Road Warrior from the Record called him and
asked why did the Council close the road? Kidd said he did not know. They asked is it
traffic or volume. People are saying all different road measurements. He said the
Township already spent about $50,000 in tax payer money to be here and will probably
spend another $30,000 of tax payer money to fight this. He said going in with only a
$2,500 report, we may have problems. The Judge called us arbitrary, capricious and
 unreasonable The judge is saying it is unconstitutional. The constitution requires us to
 not be arbitrary, not capricious and not unreasonable. He feels if we go forward we must
 provide scientific evidence why we want to not close the road. There has been no survey
or real count of cars.

The Township Attorney said he has the Judges decision. He further said the Judge did
invalidate the Ordinance. He did dismiss the Civil Rights Violations. The First
Amendment, 5th Amendment and 14th Amendment were not argued.

Kidd said civil rights violations were dismissed against us. But the Court may say that we
are arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable again.

adopted:

                              RESOLUTION – ORDINANCE # 1652
