               At this time, Mayor McCarthy stated that he would like to read a Proclamation entitled,

                                                                         Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                         May 7, 2007

                            “Youth Week in the Township of Bloomfield”
in honor of our young citizens.
        Ms. Palagano stated one written communication was received, dated April 12, 2007, and it is
from Kris Kolluri, Commissioner of the Department of Transportation, stating that on behalf of
Governor Jon S. Corzine, he is pleased to announce that applications will now be accepted for the
New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) Local Bikeways Program, and all
municipalities are eligible to apply for funds through the program. At this time, Ms. Palagano stated
that this letter was received and read, two weeks ago at the April 16th Regular Meeting, but she wants
to make sure everyone is aware of it. She then reminded that Mayor and Council that the letter was
regarding the NJDOT Local Bikeway Program. She stated that the NJDOT is informing the Mayor
and Council that Bloomfield is eligible for funds through the program, and the Department Heads will
be meeting with our grants consultant on Friday as the Council had requested to discuss ideas for a
bikeway, and the grants are due on, or before June 29, 2007.
        At this time, Mayor McCarthy opened the oral portion of the meeting to the public.
        Nick Joanow, 226 Lakewood Drive, stated that on Tuesday, he is going to do a prepared
statement so that the message he represents here will come across clearly and explicitly. He stated that
on Tuesday, May 15th at 7:30pm, the Township Planning Board will vote on an application by AFC
Realty to construct 150 townhouses on the former Scientific Glass site, which has a long and well
documented history of flooding and that the housing complex will have fifty-two three bedroom
homes, including an in-ground pool, which will be very attractive to families with children. He stated
that when Mayor McCarthy came into office in 2001, he had an important decision to make regarding
this site, and on June 25, 2001, five months before Mayor McCarthy was elected, the Township sent a
letter to the Green Acres program regarding the two properties on the former Scientific Glass site. He
stated that the acquisition project involves the purchase of vacant land, owned by two separate owners,
who are interested in selling their property, and much of the land is prone to flooding during heavy
rain storms, and as a result, the area is not fit for residential and/or commercial development. He
stated that the Township desires to purchase the property for parkland and recreational purposes. He
stated that around the time, when the Planning Board rejected a poorly designed application to build
124 condos on this site, all of the pieces were in place for Mayor McCarthy to assume the leadership
position and move forward and purchase this property to provide flood control, and much needed
open space for active and passive recreation. He stated that the Scientific Glass flood plain and the
Third River corridor have long documented history of flooding and severe riverbank erosion,

                                                     219
                                                                            Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                            May 7, 2007

nonetheless, Mayor McCarthy has been single-minded and pressing for this inappropriate
development, regardless of the enhanced flood threat to surrounding homeowners. He stated that
when Mayor McCarthy officially took office in January 2002, he appointed three new Planning Board
members and got rid of the members who voted against the project, thus assuring that it will
eventually be given Planning Board approval. He stated that Mayor McCarthy has consistently
advocated for a development on this site, and has used all of his powers as Mayor to lobby for this
development in spite of significant opposition, outraged citizens who have voiced their concerns to the
Planning Board and the Council, demonstrating their disgust and dismay with the approval that was
granted, which totally ignores health and safety issues. He stated that residents pleaded for relief from
flooding and erosion of the property yet, as we were being inundated with floodwaters appealing for
help, it continued to move forward with this development. He stated that this project is a potential
threat to the economic well-being of the Township by placing people’s lives in jeopardy and devaluing
their property because of the increased flooding that comes with paving over a critical flood storage
area. He stated that should this development be granted approval, it would be in conflict with our
Master Plan, and our Open Space and Recreation plan, since the Planning Board unanimously
approved and recommended that this site should be preserved to protect existing neighborhoods and to
preserve the floodplains of the Third River. He stated that it should also be noted that the Essex
County Open Space Master Plan identifies the Scientific Glass site as an area in need of preservation.
He stated that the best use for this property would be for open space and recreation. He stated that it is
illogical to aid development onto a site with so many health and safety issues. He stated that the best
use of this Scientific Glass site must be to improve the quality of life for the residents of this
Township, in spite of Mayor McCarthy’s advocacy for its development. He stated that as our
population increases, there must be an equal amount of open space set aside to accommodate our
future needs, expanding recreational opportunities, and if Mayor McCarthy fails to do that, he must at
the very least address the flooding problem around the scientific Glass site, and along the Third River
Corridor, which extends south of Bay Avenue, into the Brookside Park section of Town, before any
development in this area moves forward. He stated that it would be neglectful to do otherwise, thank
you.
        Susan Ebert, 33 Benson Street, stated that she would first like better clarification of an
ordinance being passed on Second Reading regarding Flood Damage Prevention.
        At this time, Mayor McCarthy asked Mr. Lasek to explain the ordinance to Ms. Ebert.
        Mr. Lasek explained that this ordinance is related to the FEMA requirements for the updated

                                                       220
                                                                         Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                         May 7, 2007

Flood Insurance Program. He stated that it is essentially a reiteration of the Flood Prevention
Ordinance we currently have in place. He stated that it just updates the current ordinance to refer to
the new study.
        Ms. Ebert said thank you. She then asked for clarification regarding Resolution 9(9)
Professional Service Contract, Redevelopment Attorney.
        Mayor McCarthy responded that this resolution is to choose a new redevelopment attorney.
        Ms. Ebert asked if the new Redevelopment Attorney is for a new project.
        Mayor McCarthy said that it is for future projects.
        At this time, Mayor McCarthy stated that we are now going to move on to the presentation of
our 2007 Goals and Objectives by our Department Heads, and we will start off with our Information
Systems Director Tim Kane.
        At this time, Ms. Palagano stated that before Mr. Kane begins his goals and objectives, she
would just like to make a note that we have never done this before. She stated that usually the goals
and objectives are presented during the Conference Meetings, but she thought it would be a good
opportunity for the public to hear what is going on in all of the departments, so we thought since the
meeting is now being video taped, she asked some of the Department Heads to come to tonight’s
meeting to present their goals, and it could be placed on the agenda to be discussed at a later time.
        At this time, Councilwoman Ritchings expressed to Ms. Palagano that she feels this should
have been discussed with the Council prior to it happening, rather than have people coming and do it,
and then discuss it with the Council after.
        Ms. Palagano stated that if Councilwoman Ritchings prefers not to do this at this time…
        Mayor McCarthy stated that the three Department Heads are here, so...
        Councilwoman Ritchings stated that she would have like to have seen this to review it. She
also stated that she does not know why we would do this at a Regular Meeting, when we always do it
at a Conference Meeting, where the Mayor and Council could discuss it.
        Ms. Palagano said that it fine.
        At this time, Mayor McCarthy stated that he would like to ask the three Department Heads
who are here to provide the Councilmembers with the information that they are going to present.
        At this time, Tim Kane, Information Systems Director, stated that the goals and objectives for
the Information Systems Department for 2007 are as follows. He stated that we are going to continue
to research and implement the wireless technology to reduce annual operating costs and improve data
throughout and employee productivity. He stated that he is is going to continue to evaluate, assess,

                                                      221
                                                                           Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                           May 7, 2007

and coordinate the PC training for Town hall PC users to improve employee proficiency. He stated
that we are also going to implement, hopefully soon, the new Edmunds Financial Software package
that will allow on-line status of budget by department heads, and allow purchase orders to be prepared
electronically, instead of by typewriters. He stated that this next thing has already been completed as
of last month, as the newspapers covered this, and he is referring to coordinate the installation of the
remote video arraignment technology with the Municipal Court, and the State Administrative Offices
of the Courts, which allows for the arraignment of defendants, and saves transportation, time, and
travel expense for Police Officers. He stated that we are going to continue to seek, with the
Recreation Director, private donations to sponsor an electronic marquis at the Civic Center to provide
a more visible message media to residents for upcoming events and programs. He stated that we will
continue to work with the Township Administrator and Township Engineer to implement a State Paris
Grants Program for records and archives management recommendations, which he thinks the funds
are due to the Town this summer. He then asked Ms. Palagano if that is correct.
        Ms. Palagano said yes.
        Mr. Kane then stated that we are going to continue to work on an information and system
security policy, along with the email policy, which was recently resent. He stated that we will
continue to work on the research and develop program to allow residents to have the capability to pay
for certain services and fees via credit card both in person, and on-line. He stated that this will require
the cooperative efforts in the Finance, Recreation, Health, Building Department, and the Municipal
Court Departments. He stated that he will continue to work on updating the network and telephone
technology equipment in accordance with the plan, and within budget constraints to allow Township
employees and citizens to exchange information in a more efficient manner. He stated that he will
continue to attend seminars and training forums to keep current on technology developments and
continue to meet with the Department Heads as individuals, or as a group, to review the processes and
develop applications on a quarterly basis as needed, thank you.
        At this time, Mayor McCarthy stated that he would prefer if we could bring the other
Department Heads back into the work session, and if anyone has any other questions, we will do it
then. He said that he thinks the best way to do this would be to have the Department Heads give their
presentation, and then bring them back next week at the Conference Meeting, and all questions could
be asked there.
        At this time, Councilwoman Ritchings stated that the public will not get the benefit of the
Council’s questions.

                                                      222
                                                                             Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                             May 7, 2007

        Mayor McCarthy responded that the public will get the benefit of the Council’s questions at
next week’s meeting.
        At this time, Councilwoman Maly stated that she totally disagrees with this process.
        At this time, Councilwoman Spychala asked what the purpose is of the presentation…
        Mayor McCarthy informed Councilwoman Spychala that she was not recognized to speak,
and we are going to proceed with this, and if the Councilwoman has an objection, she can express it at
next week’s Conference Meeting.
        At this time, Anthony Nesto, Recreation Director, stated that the 2007 Goals and Objectives
for the Recreation Department consist of continuing to raise funds for our free summer concerts series
and the fourth of July celebration, which is attended by thousands. He stated that we are going to
continue to provide additional programming for our young teenage population. He stated that another
goal is to finish the athletic light project at Wright’s Field and the insulation of the grass infield at
Wright’s Senior League Field as well as the temporary home-run fence and a scoreboard that both
William Foley Football and the Senior League will be able to use. He stated that the Recreation
Department will continue the beautification process of Town Hall, The Green, and the rest of the
municipal parks in Bloomfield. He stated that another goal and objective will be to start and complete
construction on our new handicapped accessible miracle field at Felton Field, and preliminary plans
have been provided by our Engineering Department, and we hope to have this state of the art barrier
free facility ready by the beginning of September. He stated that he will finalize bid specs for our
skate-park at Memorial Park. He stated that we are currently waiting on world famous skate-park
architect Nate Wressel to provide our second, and hopefully our last set of prints for this project. He
stated that tomorrow we will be accepting bids for the reconstruction of our tennis courts at Clark’s
Pond South, and we are going to be using a surface called Premier Court, which is a cushioned, crack
proof surface, and next year the goal is to do the same thing at Pulaski Park. He stated that he will
start and complete construction for the renovations at Upper Memorial Park, and we hope to have a
shovel in the ground by late Fall, and add an additional New Jersey Transit Shuttle route to our already
successful Montgomery Street route. He stated that the Recreation Department has many projects
going on, because Bloomfield Recreation is not just sports, thank you.
        At this time, Fire Chief Joseph Intile stated that the Fire Department’s Goals and Objectives
for 2007 is to first put a new aerial ladder into service. He stated that there are four objectives that fall
under this, and the first is that the assembly process is monitored and to make sure it is on time, take
delivery be the end of this July, and it is going to be placed in service towards the end of August. He

                                                        223
                                                                           Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                           May 7, 2007

stated that we will take the old aerial and put it in reserve as truck two, and our 1983 aerial will be
disposed. He stated that another goal is that we acquired a federal grant for $339,000.00, and this will
help train our volunteer aspect of our department and help us recruit and retain them. He stated that
we do pretty well recruiting, but to retain volunteers is a lot of work, and we have to have the rewards
to keep them on. He stated that their third goal, which is a multi-year goal, is an accreditation by the
center for public safety and excellence. He stated that there are five departments in the east coast in
the United States that are accredidated right now, but there are none in New Jersey, out of municipal
governments. He stated that we are currently in the data collection phase and we are beginning the
creation of our self-assessment manual, and next year we will have a team come out of Washington
and they will go through all of the Fire Department’s stuff and tell them what they need to improve on,
and we if we could meet their criteria, then we will be accredidated. He stated that his last goal is to
implement a volunteer recruitment and retention plan. He stated that we hired a consultant with the
grant money from the federal government, and we are going to develop a plan for recruitment. He
stated then we are going o develop the retention plan, and both of these plans will be implemented by
the end of the year. He stated that these are the four major goals, thank you.
        At this time, Councilman Hamilton stated that with regards to the issues of the Goals and
Objectives given by the Department Heads, this is not a comment of disrespect to any of the
department heads; it is a matter of respect for this Council. He stated that the hard work that is done,
and is brought to the Township by the department heads is acknowledged however, in the process of
this procedure, the Council needs to bring forth to the public any presentations, but the Council should
have voice to do such. He stated that the Council may have some critical questions as to how the
methods are going to be done, with regards to these goals and objectives. He stated that he disagrees
with Mayor McCarthy with regards that he shut down the Council to have a conference of opinions,
which he feels is important to this process. He stated that if objections are raised regarding the
changes that have been made on an agenda, the public needs to hear from the Council with regards to
their comments and input for their clarity and understanding of how we operate this Township. He
stated that he takes offense to the fact that certain Councilpersons were not allowed to ask their
questions, and he thinks in the future if such goals and objectives are going to be presented by
department heads, they need to be done prior with the Council, at a Conference Meeting, and then they
should be allowed to be made public, so the Council could understand, and know what questions need
to be asked if critical questions come up during the Conference Meetings, thank you.

                                                                            Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003
                                                                                            May 7, 2007

        At this time, Mayor McCarthy stated that this is an agenda that we have had since Friday, and
it has been on our website, and everyone knew the agenda, but if the Council had a problem with the
agenda, they could have contacted Ms. Palagano, and it could have been removed. He stated that we
also sat for an hour prior to this meeting, so what we will do now is establish that we will go back to
doing this in the Conference Meeting, so that if anyone has questions, we could do it that way, thank
you.
        Councilwoman Dunigan moved to close the Oral Portion of the meeting, which was seconded
by Councilman Tamborini and carried.
        Councilman Hamilton submitted the following ordinance on first reading:

        At this time, Mr. Joanow stated that in approving the updated Flood Hazard Ordinance, which
is mandated by FEMA, it is so contradictory to him that in its opening statement it reads that it is a
mandate that we protect the health, safety, and welfare of our residents, and so contradict that
statement. He stated that where the DEP will be under a rule change that will eliminate the twenty
percent fill on a floodplain, but they have come to realize that does not effectively prevent or mitigate
flood damage. He stated that the fact that we as a Township are an embarrassing part of New Jersey
in the fact that we are running counter to what other Townships are doing to protect the residents. He
stated that rather than mitigate flooding, we are adding units onto a floodplain with a predictable
outcome that is obvious to everyone. He stated that this is not going to protect the health, safety, and
welfare of our residents, thank you.
