Mayor and Council
Proclamation for 10th Anniversary of the Harrington Park Historical Society
Mayor Hoelscher welcomed members of the Historical Society. Ms. Gibney and the Executive
Board are an integral part of the re-birth of this, at one time, failing group. For 10 years many
programs have been planned for members and the public and PAH is proud to be a member. He
encouraged the public to take advantage of the programs that are entertaining and educational.

Ms. Gibney and Ms. Nebel were present to accept the Proclamation.

Ms. Gibney thanked the Mayor and Council and pointed out that Councilwoman Ryan is on the
Executive Board and Councilman Evanella works diligently with the Old Burying Ground. Ms.
Nebel is the Borough archivist and is one of the original people who started the current group. Ms.
Gibney encouraged the public to attend any of the Historical Society meetings on the 1 st Monday of
the Month. June will be a program on both the cemeteries in the Borough-Perry and Old Burying

PAH added that he has spoken with a landscaper that may be interested in repairing the failing
retaining wall on Tappan Road by the Old Burying Ground. Ms. Gibney asked to be kept up to date
on any progress.

MR added to the presentation that the Historical Society will be honored for their hard work by the
County on May 26, 2011 in Hackensack.

PAH asked Council to open the meeting to the public since there were several residents present.
Motion GE Second JR Vote AIF.

Will Maltin-Kohring Circle South
Mr. Maltin is a Junior at NVOT and is requesting permission to do a litter cleanup at Highland Field and the
surrounding areas. He has received permission from Council for the past 4 years. He would like to do the
clean up on July 9, 2011 from 9am-12 noon.

PAH complimented Mr. Maltin on his hard work that he done on behalf of the Borough in the past. He was
directed to provide a list of students helping him and coordinate his efforts with the DPW supervisor.

Mr. Maltin asked why is the normal police cruiser an SUV and not a car or hybrid. Capt. Maalouf responded
that the 2003-2005 explorers used are V-6 engines and are fairly economical to use and maintain. The size of
the vehicle is also beneficial to carry all the required equipment necessary. The SUV’s also transports people
better than a Crown Victoria.

Paul Phillips-Lohs Place
Mr. Phillips questioned how funding became available for Club 60. PAH explained that funding for Club 60
was discussed at a past meeting by one of the Councilmembers and no action was taken. Determinations
need to be made on several issues regarding the addition of a budgetary line item and the formation of a
Dedicated Trust Fund.

MR added that a Trust Fund could be set up to deposit private donations that could be used for Senior
activities. The account would be managed by the Borough.

Mr. Phillips added that he has no problem with the Borough funding Club 60 activities.

Mr. Phillips inquired into the amount of funding that is provided to the Library. PAH explained that the
percentage is calculated by the state. The amount had decreased over the past two years. In the past (many
years ago) the town had more control in the amount of tax dollars appropriated for the Library. Now the
percentage is approximately one-third (1/3) of a million dollars. There is talk of reducing that amount in

Gerri Gibney-La Roche Avenue
When her church establishes a budget they cannot move money around or change it during the course of the
year, how can the Borough do this? JR explained that monies can be moved from one line to another after
November 1 of the fiscal year. PAH added that no vote had been taken regarding Club 60 since the future is
unclear at this time. The major issue that needs to be addressed is that Club 60 is a private Club and is not
eligible for municipal funding; however the seniors are a part of our community and would like to have some
benefits. JR would like to consider making the group fall under the Recreation Commission. Ms. Gibney
inquired into what would be the determining factors for a private group to become a municipal group. PAH
explained that at this point no one knows. If anything would be accomplished it would have to be done by an
official Resolution.

Councilman Quantmeyer
(GQ) Police, Municipal Court, Public Assistance
      Monthly Report-Capt. A. Maalouf-OIC
      Captain Maalouf reported details of various traffic enforcements, assistance with other
      towns, stolen vehicles, harassment and domestic violence calls. He also reviewed the details
      of a vehicular accident (Kline Street) that involved a patrolman and the “Bomb Threat” at
      Our Lady of Victories Church.

       Updates were given on the department’s firearms qualifications and the transition involved
       with the County Communication Center in Mahwah.

       Capt. Maalouf explained the package he submitted for the Ride-Along Program. He
       modeled this program after the Borough of Westwood’s program. This program falls under
       the JIF guidelines and would need a Resolution of Approval from the Mayor and Council in
       order to be implemented. (add to June Agenda)

       MR asked about the newly installed cameras at Tappan and Schraalenburgh Roads. Capt.
       Maalouf explained that for now they are only used for the traffic signals, they do not provide
       any video.

May 16, 2011                                                                                        4
Mayor and Council
       Discussion followed regarding the use of a Hybrid vehicle for patrol. Capt. Maalouf has
       spoken with other municipalities and was informed that this type of vehicle works best as an
       alternate vehicle, not one to be used to answer calls or for pursuit of criminals. The also tend
       to be too small to fit a prisoner in the back of the car in the required cage, nor do they fit all
       the equipment required to outfit a police car. The upside of a Hybrid such as a Highlander is
       that the maintenance is less than that of a regular SUV or car. SUVs tend to also have a
       longer life that the average patrol car such as a Crown Victoria.

       The Community Church has requested additional handicapped spots. Traffic Officer
       Barbieri suggested to GQ that two spots on the west of Spring Street and two on Dean Street
       would work well. Officer Barbieri also suggested a painted crosswalk between the Bus stop
       and the convenience store.

       MR reported that residents on Highland Avenue are grateful for the stop signs which have
       helped eliminate much of the speeding cars from the roadway. However, someone is
       honking their horn between 9:30pm-10:30pm in protest of the signs.
