Flag           Clerk Nelson led the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of
Salute         America.

               Suspend Regular Order of Business
               Councilman Pedersen moved to suspend the regular order of business. Upon second by
               Councilman Lander, motion carried without dissenting vote.            5-0

               Paul Phillips – 20 Lohs Place had the following issues to discuss:
               1. Pondside Park roadway – there are deep ruts after heavy rains, as well as on the
                  ballfields. He felt that the DPW should be monitoring these areas. Councilman
                  Lander noted that he would ask Mr. Kiernan to check it out and repair as needed on
                  Tuesday, August 19.
               2. The Record had an article that noted the towns that were receiving extraordinary aid.
                  He wanted to know why Harrington Park was not listed. The Mayor explained that
                  Harrington Park did not qualify as the State does not feel that we have such a need.
                  Mr. Phillips feels that this type of information might be included in the newsletter, or
                  even other important information. The Mayor said he would try to include such
                  notices in the future.
               3. He asked if the Borough hires someone to find grants that we qualify for. The Mayor
                  explained that we contract for such services with Capital Alternatives, who look for or
                  advise us of applicable grants @ 10% commission. He further explained that joining
                  other towns for grants is not always applicable due to differing needs. One grant
                  being considered jointly is purchase of a building for historical societies.
               4. He asked about the recent petition for consolidation. The Mayor advised that both
                  petitions (in Old Tappan and Harrington Park) were deemed deficient in the number
                  of signatures. Councilman Lander asked what Mr. Phillips’ views on the subject
                  were. A discussion on this subject continued.
               5. He asked if the Mayor had gotten the high school cost figures per student. The Mayor
                  promised to get the figures to him this week.

               Closed to Public Discussion and Resume Regular Order of Business
               Councilman Lander moved to close the meeting to public discussion and resume the
               regular order of business. Upon second by Councilman Betancourt and without
               discussion, motion carried without dissenting vote.                     5-0

           COMMITTEE REPORTS:
MD
Env. Comm. The Councilwoman asked Councilman Lander for his report on Beechwood Park.
           Councilman Lander noted that he had walked through the park with Ann Bistritz and
           Mary Ann Schran and there are some concerns relative to misuse of public lands.
           - there is evidence of drinking on United Water property such as garbage bags of
              bottles, etc., as well as firepits that have been dug.
           - bike ramps/jumps have been constructed which have severely damaged the area, some
              are 2-1/2’ to 3’ deep and @ 4’ high.
           Councilwoman Dunlea noted that Peter Ardito will discuss these issues with United
           Water.

               Councilman Lander asked who had authority to enforce these areas. He also wondered
               how to encourage public use of these lands for nature and educational purposes.
               Councilwoman Dunlea advised that the Girl Scouts are doing a Silver Award program for
               this purpose, with funding from the HP Community Parks for signs.

               Councilman Lander noted that he had contacted United Water and they are willing to
               work with the Council on this problem.

               Councilman Pedersen noted that the Police Department does not have the authority,
               unless invited by United Water, to correct a problem at the time.

               The Mayor asked Councilman Lander to get a copy of the lease agreement for Green
               Acres for any enforcement issues.

               Councilwoman Dunlea reported on the tree removal at the school last week. She had
               heard that there might be more trees removed for a playground area. She asked
               Councilwoman Ryan to find out more information from the Board of Education.

Rec. Comm. Councilwoman Dunlea noted that a letter was sent to Mark Kiernan relative to Highland
           Field. He managed to get Rockland Electric to act quickly to repair the lights on the field
           for the camp.

               The Councilwoman advised that there would be a meeting on Thursday at 9:00pm at the
               upper Highland field with a presentation of a “light pole” for possible use at the field.
               The pole is portable. They will also discuss allowing flag football practices with this pole
               temporarily.

               The Councilwoman asked about the Pondside Park project – if Council was ready to
               move on it. Borough Clerk Nelson noted that a JIF loss control person would be out
               Wednesday morning at 9:30am to inspect the site with Mark Kiernan and Chris Traverna

               of Neglia Engineering, in case the Councilwoman wished to attend. This project will be
               addressed in Old Business.

               The Councilwoman noted that there would be a Concert in the Park event on the first
               Saturday in September.

                                                                          Mayor

JNP
Police         Councilman Pedersen reported on the following for July: It will be subsequently filed
               with the Borough Clerk for Council review.
               July was ranked 6th in the last 12 months for calls handled, with the top three being
               complaints, general assistance, and false alarms.
               Overtime for the month was: Court Pay $1,281.53; Overtime non-reimbursed
               $11,738.55; and Overtime reimbursed $4,902.08 – all totaling $17,922.16. Overtime is
               high due to 3 officers being out and the loss of the jumping jack. One officer will return
               in August and another in September. Additionally, there were a number of officers taking
               vacation time.
               There were 7 criminal incidents with no adult arrests, 9 crashes with 2 injuries, and no
               juvenile matters.

               The Councilman advised that he had received a letter from the Chief relative to the
               Council’s plan to remove a crossing guard. The Chief does not recommend that action:
               if there are 3 officers on duty it might be okay, but if an emergency call comes in they
               would have to leave the post to respond, which would create problems at Lynn Street
               with no coverage at all.

               The Councilman noted that he had one item for closed session.

               Councilman Pedersen advised that he was still waiting for a report from the traffic officer
               (Ptl. Barbieri) on his findings/suggestions for Highland Avenue. The Chief does not
               recommend stop signs, but suggested painting on the pavement for 25mph might help.
               The Councilman also noted that 2 Highland Avenue residents were ticketed for speeding
               over the weekend.

MR
Fire       Councilwoman Ryan reported on the activities for the Fire Dept. for July.
Department There were: 6 fire calls; 2 regular fire drills; 1 company business meeting; 1 officers’
           meeting; 2 equipment inspections; 1 softball game vs. Norwood Fire Dept.; and 1 fit
           testing completed. There was a caucus meeting for convention delegates at Paramus
           Catholic School on 8/14. The convention is 9/12-9/14.

               The Councilwoman noted she had one item for closed session.

LL
DPW            Councilman Lander reported that the DPW had done an outstanding job with the storm
               damage. Harrington Park was assisted by neighboring towns at no charge, through
               mutual aid.

LL
Emergency      Councilman Lander introduced the following Resolution:
Appropr.                      SEE ADDENDUM “C”
               Upon second by Councilwoman Dunlea, and with the following comments, Resolution
               adopted on roll call vote with all Council members present voting in the affirmative.
                                                                                           5–0
               Adopted: August 18, 2008



                                                                   __________________________
                                                                         Mayor

               The Mayor was concerned about the $29,000 amount. He wondered if it was related to
               the proposed work at Pondside. The answer was “no”.

               He also asked if the $10,000 amount was enough for the storm-related tree removal in
               town. The answer was “yes”.

               Councilwoman Ryan asked if the proposed work on S. Colonial was included.
               Councilman Lander advised that it was not included, but that he wished to discuss the S.
               Colonial project separately.

               Upon second by Councilman Pedersen, and without comment, Resolution adopted on roll
               call vote with all Council members present voting in the affirmative. 5–0
               Adopted: August 18, 2008



                                                                   __________________________
                                                                         Mayor

               Old Business
               Councilwoman Dunlea asked to discuss the Pondside development project. She asked
               Councilman Lander to report on the recent meeting with the DEP on the Pondside
               project. The Councilman outlined the following items:
               a) to remove the silt and deepen the pond should not be a major problem
               b) to support the sides of the pond would create a significant increase in paperwork and
                   the timeframe required for the project. He further explained that the DEP views this
                   as a serious change requiring wildlife studies, environmental studies, etc. To pursue
                   this idea would require separating this part from the other project.
               c) Greg Polyniak felt no urgency with the pond right now, but if and when the “island”
                   meets the shore and cuts off water flow, it would then be a major problem with the
                   DEP. Therefore, the Borough needs to act before that happens. The Councilman
                   asked what the reason was for considering this part of the project (since it preceded
                   him on Council). Councilwoman Dunlea replied that the pond is too shallow for
                   aerators and needs to be saved as a watercourse.
               d) Pondside field project – the Councilman noted that no decision had been made last
                   week.


125a6097-ef48-4ad4-b574-1590c27d6410.doc

               e) The Councilman said there were 2 issues for the 2 projects: the application(s) need(s)
                  to be made before the rules change (no date yet) but the DEP felt they would be
                  approved; and on the Lynn Street project, only engineering fees would need to be
                  budgeted this year – there is a 5-yr. window to do the project.

               Motion – Pondside Field Expansion Permitting Process
               Councilwoman Dunlea moved to authorize Neglia Engineering to move forward with the
               DEP permitting process for the Pondside Field expansion, at a cost not to exceed
               $20,000.00. This authorization being contingent upon a favorable report from the JIF
               loss control consultant relating to any liability with the projected plans. Upon second by
               Councilman Lander and without discussion or comment, motion carried on roll call vote,
               all Council members present voting in the affirmative.                        5-0

               Councilwoman Ryan reported back to Councilman Luciano relative to the Fire
               Department report noting standby for a fire in a distant town. The Chief had responded
               that this had been requested by the Bergen County mutual aid coordinator, and the
               Harrington Park firemen were the only ones available to respond for this standby request.

               The Councilwoman also advised that she had spoken to the Chief relative to the Borough
               being able to tie into the Fire Dept.’s generator. The Chief feels an electrician would
               need to be consulted for viability of that option.

               Councilman Lander noted that the swale at South Colonial Drive was inspected with
               Greg Polyniak who feels it is questionable to move forward with this project. The
               Councilman advised that this should be a closed session discussion.

               New Business
               There was no new business to report.

               MAYOR’S REPORT:
                  He thanked all for the many efforts relative to the storm. He was called by the
                   County and letters will go out.
                  The tax bills have gone out.
                  The petition for consolidation was officially rejected due to insufficient number of
                   signatures.
                  Asked Councilman Pedersen and the police committee to discuss with the Chief,
                   the Capt., etc. for a traffic plan for Highland Avenue.
                  He is concerned for the children’s safety in the Beechwood Park area. He needs
                   to discuss with the Chief for a plan.

               He asked if anyone in the audience wished to be heard on any issues. They did not.

               Closed Session
               Councilman Betancourt moved to go into closed session for reasons of personnel and
               possible litigation. Upon second by Councilwoman Dunlea, motion carried without
               dissenting vote.                                                         5-0
                                                                                        9:00pm

               Return to Open Session
               Councilman Lander moved to return to open session. Upon second by Councilman
               Pedersen, motion carried without dissenting vote.                    5-0
                                                                                    9:10pm

               Motion – Reinstate Crossing Guard Position
               Councilman Pedersen moved to reinstate the crossing guard position and make
               arrangements to fund said position. Upon second by Councilwoman Ryan and without
               discussion or comment, motion carried on roll call vote, all Council members present
               voting in the affirmative.                                               5-0
