PUBLIC:

KAREN ALLEN, 600 Virginia Avenue, asked about the old Schmidt’s gas station and
if there was any possibility to block the driveways as she feels drivers are using it as a
raceway to get back on to Spruce Avenue. The Wildwood Leader had an amazing
letter with wonderful comments from a vacationer from New York. Allen passed a copy
around for all to see.
                                       REGULAR MEETING
                                       OCTOBER 2, 2007

JIM KOCH, 1301 Surf Avenue, wanted to add to the silent prayer Winn Meyers who
is very sick. Mr. Koch thought the Irish Festival was very well run but wants to know
if we received money for the extra police and clean up. Administrator Townsend
stated he can’t give a report at this time on how much we collected but it should cover
all additional expenses. Mr. Koch is waiting for the 300 jobs promised by the 22nd
Avenue high rise as the streets are very quiet. Koch also questioned the railings for the
seawall with Administrator Townsend stating that not until the seawall is finished will it
go out to bid. Mr. Koch also questioned the house on 15th Avenue and if anything was
done to help the owner. Mayor Henfey stated Mr. Hall spoke to the gentleman. Mr.
Koch also asked if the Firemen were trained to handle a building 4 – 6 floors higher than
Montego Bay. Fire Chief Evangelista stated from the third floor and above there was
no difference in handling a fire. Walt Larcombe added the volunteers come along with
the paid crew and they are qualified also.

EVERETT McCORKELL, 410 E. 13th Avenue, stated the Firemen’s Parade had to cut
down because there was no place to stay. McCorkell questioned the Anglesea Irish
Band whereabouts and was told by Council President Rosenello the members were
working. McCorkell stated the boards to walk on the beach were not put down until
July.

HARRY GALE, 307 E. Avenue, stated this was a great year and well handled. One
major concern were the yellow lines for no parking. Cars were getting towed all the
time because the yellow lines were not on the curb on 23rd Avenue. Gale also stated
there was trash all summer all over 25th Avenue. Gale asked what happened to the
trashcans that were there when persons are walking off the Boardwalk?

KATHY MARTIN, 1910 Central Avenue, stated keeping the beach open and protected
was a good idea during Irish weekend and she hopes a lot visited the beach. Martin
heard Friday it was packed and was glad this wonderful City had lifeguards. Ms.
Martin questioned the resolution for Lee Rohm from the previous meeting asking if
Andy Weiner’s lot was going to be appraised as a redevelopment area and why the City
is spending money to have it appraised. Ms. Martin also asked for the docket number
so she can look up the case herself.

BARBARA HUNTER, 500 Kennedy Drive, praised the lifeguards, as she needed
rescue when caught in a riptide. Hunter questioned the parking permits given out on 2nd
and 3rd Avenues during the Irish Festival and was told they were for residents only.
Ms. Hunter questioned the parking meters and why they go until 1:00 AM. Council
President Rosenello said the ordinance regarding meters is out of date and will be
revised.

ADJOURNMENT:

before Council, we do now adjourn. Carried.       7:54 P.M.
