Township Manager Schlegel stated that the Township will have an Amnesty Program between our Building Department under the Department of Community Development. The Building Amnesty Program is an opportunity for property owners to apply for building permits for undocumented construction. From the period of January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 there will be no penalty fees assessed. Applicable codes at the time of construction will be used for inspection. This also includes Engineering and Zoning and ordinances as well and assurance that the work done meets minimum life safety standards. This program will also be extended to all permits that have been issued but are lacking mandatory inspection. Residents are reminded that the current property owners are ultimately responsible for bringing the property or projects into compliance. If permits were issued to a licensed contractor and required inspections were not conducted, contact the contractor of record and request that the permit be reinstated under the provisions of the Amnesty Program. Councilwoman Smith questioned why the Minor Site Plan Procedure was removed from the Township agenda. Township Attorney Kingdon responded that there are some changes to be made. Councilwoman Smith had some comments on this matter and will contact Township Attorney Kingdon. Councilman Malave requested an update on the Reassessment Program. Township Manager Schlegel stated that she will get a full update from the Tax Assessor and e-mail the governing body. The company is in the process of mailing each property owner a letter advising them of their new assessed value and residents will have the opportunity to arrange for an informal meeting with a representative of the company to discuss the assessment. Mayor Walsh stated that he received a resolution from Monrnouth County Freeholders regarding the light at Colts Neck Road and Route 33. Mayor Walsh asked for an update on the meeting held yesterday on this subject. Township Engineer Nunziato responded that a meeting was held and the traffic light was discussed along with the concerns that the Equestra residents have but this is a State issue. Mayor Walsh asked if there is anything needed from the governing body. Township Manager Schlegel stated that she spoke with Senator Kean's office and they understand the Township's position and that we are in full support of moving forward; nothing else is needed. Mayor Walsh stated that he had a request from a resident to write a letter on Township letterhead in support of an adoption. Township Attorney Kingdon stated that the letter of recommendation would be of a personal nature and should not be on Township letterhead. Proclamation - Assemblyman Joseph R. Malone, 111, sincere gratitude for representing the 3oth Legislative District for 18 years. Assemblyman Malone acknowledged those present tonight, Senator Robert Singer, Senator Declan O'Scanlon, Assemblyman David Rible, and Assemblyman Sean Kean. TOWNSHIP OF HOWELL JANUARY 24, 2012 TOWNSHIP COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING PAGE 4 Discussion 7C.2 Senate Bill 3148, School Election Mayor Walsh announced that there will be a change of order for tonight's agenda. Discussion Item 7C.2 Senate Bill 3148, School Election. Senator Rible discussed the bill recently signed by the Governor, stating that it is a very complicated bill. Senator Rible stated that the basic idea of the bill is to give the option to move school elections from April to November. The change in election date can be made by the board of education, the municipality or by citizen petition. If the school election is moved to IVovember, it can revert back to April after 4 election cycles have passed. There is debate in assembly on the budget cap. Senator Singer stated that the cost factor involved with a school election for taxpayers is $25-$40.000 and having better turnout for the election and better representation are weighing factors for this bill. Senator Singer stated that in each township, the regional and local district would need to change to November but not all members of the regional system have to change to November. Mayor Walsh questioned if residents can expect fire district elections to move to a November election. Senator Singer stated that there is a move to have it in November - but there is a concern that the ballot will be packed and will be confusing with too much information. Assemblyman Rible stated that in the next few weeks, DCA will come out with guidelines on this issue. 6. Hearing of Citizens William Varela, 9 Honeysuckle Way. Mr. Varela stated that he received a letter stating that he cannot have his pop up camper on his property and was told to take it off the street and put it on the side of his property. Mr. Varela stated that his neighbor has complained about the camper being on the side of the property (204-37 ordinance). Township Attorney Kingdon responded that in this ordinance, the Township does not allow trailers, with exception of mobile home parks, and are prohibited unless in the rear yard or garage. Code Enforcement is enforcing the laws on the books. Councilman Nicastro stated that as of today, Mr. Varela is in violation, but this matter is a Discussion Item this evening (7C.6), proposed ordinance for residential property maintenance. Mayor Walsh asked that the governing body go onto discussion for Item 7C.6, Proposed Ordinance, Property Maintenance. Discussion 7C.6 Proposed Ordinance, Property Main ten an ce Chris Jackson, Howell Township Code Environmental Enforcement Official. Mr. Jackson stated that the proposed property maintenance ordinance is in direct response to the residents of Howell Township. Mr. Jackson stated that he along with the Township Manager and Township Attorney did a survey of surrounding municipalities on how they enforce property maintenance issues. Howell Township has no ordinance with issues for residential properties. Currently, complaints TOWNSHIP OF HOWELL JANUARY 24, 2012 TOWNSHIP COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING PAGE 5 and violations about residential properties are addressed under Chapter 192, Littering Ordinance. Mr. Jackson stated that in regards to Mr. Varela's complaint, the matter came to the Township's attention under the QAlert system (Township complaint system) from the neighbor with regards to a camper being on his property. It falls under storage trailer, recreation vehicle - only permitted in a rear yard. Mr. Jackson stated that in 1978 the Township did have an ordinance on the books that allowed for storage on side and rear yards. When the code book was recodified, it was left out. Mr. Jackson stated that under the traffic ordinance, Chapter 7, as long as it is under the length of 25 feet and has a valid license and registration, it can be parked on the street. It would be the recommendation of Code Enforcement to allow these on the side and rear yards. Mr. Jackson stated that a lot of complaints are coming from residential neighborhoods and is affecting their quality of life. Councilman Nicastro stated that the governing body does not want to be intrusive, but we have to strike a balance. Councilman Nicastro stated that we should look at the International Property Maintenance Code and modify it to the Township. Mr. Jackson stated that the proposed ordinance comes from the International BOCA Maintenance Code and conforms to Howell Township. Township Attorney Kingdon stated that she will forward the surrounding municipalities' ordinance on property maintenance code for reference to the governing body. Deputy Mayor Gotto asked that the governing body form a task group of 2 members and include Mr. Jackson. Mayor Walsh suggested each Council member come in and spend an hour with Township Attorney Kingdon and Mr. Jackson on this matter. 6. Hearing of Citizens Barbara Dixel, 62A Piazza. Mrs. Dixel questioned the location of Discussion Item 7C.I, Proposed Acquisition (NJDOT Inquiry) of Block 140, Lot I , Route 9 & Strickland Road. Township Manager Schlegel responded that the location is north on Route 9, small piece that abuts to the BP Gas Station. Mrs. Dixel stated that there are monitoring wells on that property. Township Manager Schlegel responded that this matter is on for Township Council Discussion. Mrs. Dixel stated that she is in favor of 7C.2, Senate Bill, School Elections, and is in favor of voting in November but not in favor of not voting on the school budget. Mayor Walsh stated that it is not an option, it's all in one. Mrs. Dixel questioned 7C.4, Proposed Sign Ordinance. Township Attorney Kingdon stated that this ordinance is changing language to prohibit signs using red, amber or green lights placed within 100 feet of a light controlled intersection. The intent of the language is to prevent any confusion. Chris Otszch, 246 Herbertsville Road, on behalf of John Blewitt Inc. Mr. Otszch stated that he is withdrawing comment at this time. Robert Munoz, Lomurro Davison, 100 Willwbrook Road, on behalf of Dr. Copper, he is withdrawing the Junkyard Application License under 7B.6. TOWNSHIP OF HOWELL JANUARY 24, 2012 TOWNSHIP COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING PAGE 6 Rupert Warburton, 37 Nicklaus Lane. Mr. Warburton stated that he was before the governing body in 2009 and left the meeting with the feeling that his permanent structure (basketball hoop) would be able to stay. Township Attorney Kingdon stated that at that time, no action was taken to amend the ordinance. Mr. Warburton questioned the mailboxes in the right of way. Township Council responded that mailboxes are governed by federal. Mayor Walsh stated that it is not the will of the governing body to readdress the matter. Council responded that they can still play basketball - portable hoop. Mr. Warburton stated that he had another issue regarding Belgium block damaged and has put this in writing. Township Manager Schlegel will have someone look into this matter. Close Hearing of Citizens. 7. Consent Agenda Council reviewed and discussed the Consent Agenda.

Discussion 7C.1 Property Acquisition (NJDOT Inquiry) of Block 140, Lot 1, Route 9 & Strickland Road Township Council discussed inquiry of NJDOT for property known as Block 140, Lot 1, Route 9 & Strickland Road, no longer required for transportation purposes. In correspondence from NJDOT, it is stated that the adjoining owner has requested to purchase the property, but first must offer the option to buy the property to the Township.

TOWNSHIP OF HOWELL JANUARY 24, 2012 TOWNSHIP COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING PAGE 9 7C.2 Senate Bill 3148, School Election Township Council discussed Bill that establishes procedures for districts, municipalities, or voters to opt to move the annual school election to November and eliminates vote on school budgets for such districts, except for separate proposals to spend above cap. The governing body stated that the Local School Board will discuss this matter tomorrow night and our local liaison will advise. Deputy Mayor Gotto stated that the governing body has received phone calls and e- mails about this matter. Deputy Mayor Gotto stated that two things that are important to clarify is that the Township does not have the option of moving the election and still allowing the residents to have a vote on the budget. Also, the 2% cap does not mean that there is a tax increase limit of 2%; there are things outside the cap. Mayor Walsh questioned CFO Filiatreault what items are outside the cap. CFO Filiatreault stated that pension costs, healthcare costs (the amount that the state health benefit plan increases over the 2%; the first 2% is inside cap), deferred charges, and debt services. Deputy Mayor Gotto requested an e-mail blast with the facts of this legislation - and items the governing body just discussed, cap versus the increase - and ask for feedback before the next Township Council meeting. 7C.3 Set date for Howell Day 2012 Township Council discussed date for Howell Day 2012.
