                                               January 11, 2011

This meeting was opened and called to order at 4:00 pm by Mayor Harper who stated this meeting was being
held in compliance with the Open Public Meetings Act, having been duly advertised.

Roll Call
The clerk was asked to call the roll. Present were: Committeeman MacDonald, Deputy Mayor Leppert and
Mayor George Harper.

Also in attendance: Jessica Caruso, Stan Dutkus

The Mayor invited all to join in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Budget Workshop: Mayor Harper began the Budget Workshop by stating Mr. Jones of Nisivoccia did not
attend the meeting today because at this time we do not have any indication with regard to exceptions to the
cap. Mayor Harper asked Ms. Jessica Caruso, Chief Financial Officer, to give the Committee an overview of
2011 Budget. Ms. Caruso stated she has increased buildings and grounds by $2,000, as that is an area that we
have been spending more money. Other areas of increase are: the annual bill for the Public Employees
Retirement System, a statutory increase of $8,676; the 911 Shared Service, a statutory increase of $500 per the
contract that is good through 2011. These increases total $11,176. The 2% increase from 2010-2011 for Salary
& Wage is $6,417.90. The total is 17,593. A 2% increase over last year’s budget would amount to $17,193,
which puts us over by approximately $493. Mayor Harper asked about Capital. Ms. Caruso stated this does not
touch the Capital at all because they are changing the exceptions continually. Mayor Harper asked if this also
includes us continuing to put the same amount into Capital. Ms. Caruso stated yes. Mayor Harper reminded the
Ms. Caruso the need to replace the backhoe. Ms. Caruso stated the statutory increase in the Public Employees
Retirement System could be an exception or a portion of the increase could be an exception to the CAP. They
have discussed any increases greater than 20% in your statutory expenses could allow you to use them as an
exception, but they have yet to be more definite. Deputy Mayor Leppert stated based on this information we
can operate and tighten our belts as always. Mayor Harper stated we would have another budget workshop at
the next meeting to be held Tuesday, February 8, 2010 at 9:00 am.

Mayor Harper asked if the payment was ready for the Bank of New York. Ms. Caruso stated the payment will
be made in the form of a wire, so it will not appear in the bills list. This payment is encumbered in the 2010
budget. We will also have an interest payment $285 due in February 2011.

The Committee thanked Ms. Caruso for her information.

Departmental Reports: The Committee reviewed the departmental reports. Deputy Mayor Leppert asked if
the Road Department worked on separating the tires from the Sandyston-Walpack School. Mayor Harper stated
the Road Department was able to fit in the job of taking apart the tires from the playground. This was a brutal
job which probably saved the school approximately $10,000. Any company that was able to take the tires was
going to charge substantial fees per ton because the tires were bolted together. The Road Department did a
little bit everyday working on unbolting the tires. Committeeman MacDonald asked who ended up taking the
tires. Mayor Harper stated Ayers Sanitation trucked the tires to Tire King who had the best deal on disposal.
Deputy Mayor Leppert commended the Road Department for their hard work on the project.

Correspondence: The Committee reviewed the correspondence. Deputy Mayor Leppert pointed out a letter
written by Mrs. Barbara Palmer, lives on Fox Run, wrote a letter expressing concern over the traffic on County
Route 645. Mayor Harper stated the only thing we can do is request a speed survey. The Clerk noted the
survey of that road was completed last year. Mayor Harper stated the speed limit is set by State Statute which
states the speed limit is set by how many houses per mile. Deputy Mayor Leppert explained to Mrs. Palmer
that this is a County road and there isn’t a lot we can do.

The Clerk pointed out the study was received yesterday for where we are currently with the Layton Bypass
Study.

Deputy Mayor Leppert pointed out the memo received from Morville Insurance regarding the insurance for
recreation and asked if Recreation had received a copy of the memo. The Clerk stated a copy was given to
Recreation. Deputy Mayor Leppert stated he would be going to the next meeting for Recreation.

Mayor Harper asked what information was requested with the OPRA request. The Clerk stated it was from the
NJ Herald for the NJ League of Municipalities. Mayor Harper asked if they wrote the article. The Clerk and
Deputy Mayor Leppert stated they did not see the article to date.



                                                                                                                     8
Mayor Harper asked about the Notice from the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for
Block 1201 Lot 3. The Clerk stated this is for the Brehm residence and is a No Further Action Letter.

Mayor Harper asked about the Notice from the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for
Block 1103, Lot 12.02 and 12.03. Deputy Mayor Leppert stated this is for Wilson and they have not responded
to the Violation.

The Clerk stated she has spoken with the attorney for Service Electric and advised them it would be
approximately $400 to update the codification and the website. If we do several ordinances with that ordinance
it will be cheaper. There is also an additional charge for advertising. To date, we have not heard from the
attorney.

The Clerk stated she researched the Water Testing facilities and found that Garden State Laboratories had the
best price for the water testing for the municipal building. Mr. Delea stated he would be willing to do the
testing; however, the representative at Garden State Labs stated the only townships doing their own testing are
the ones that have water treatment systems and are experienced with the testing. Mayor Harper stated this is
State mandated test and we should have people experienced in the field of water testing doing the water testing.

Mayor Harper asked for the status of the pond on Ridge Road and Victoria Jadali. The Clerk stated she heard
from Mrs. Jadali who recently had a meeting with the National Park Service and Mr. Deegnan seemed
optimistic that something could be done at this location, but needed to wait until the meeting, which was
coming up. Mrs. Jadali stated a letter will be sent out after the meeting. The Clerk also stated that Mr. Brett
Callanan from the DEP also visited the site. Mr. Callanan also gave us the number of the Conservation Officer
in our area.

Open Meeting to Floor: Mayor Harper made a motion to open the meeting to the public, seconded by Deputy
Mayor Leppert and unanimously carried.

Mr. Stan Dutkus, President of the Sandyston Township Volunteer Fire Department, came forward and wanted
to reiterate the agreement that was put in place back when this building was being built that the fire department
would be in charge of shoveling sidewalks and the bay doors during inclement weather. Mr. Dutkus also asked
if the Road Department has trouble plowing the Fire House in Layton to please advise the Township
Committee. Mayor Harper agreed that if there is any question or problems at the Fire House in Layton that he
will address the matter.

Mr. Dutkus stated the fire department has been exploring the option of recovering costs for services. The fire
department is looking into the services of EF Recovery, which would allow the fire department to recover costs
associated with accidents. Mr. Dutkus feels this will help the budget of the fire department. Mr. Dutkus said
the fire department may need an ordinance supporting the recovery of costs. The Committee stated they would
support the ordinance if needed.

Mr. Dutkus stated they have had knotty pine donated for the TV room over by the fire department.
Committeeman MacDonald stated that is their side of the building and they should feel like they can maintain
how they wish. Mr. Dutkus agreed but felt that he would like the Committee to know what they are doing
before begin and maintain a good relationship.

Mr. Dutkus stated FEMA has just started releasing money for the next round of grants.

Mr. Dutkus stated there is no update from Emergency Management.

The Committee also discussed the various recent activity of the fire department with regard to fire calls.
