CAUCUS MEETING

APRIL 17, 2012

9:30 A.M.

Members Present: Present were Mayor William Henfey, President of Council Patrick Rosenello, Councilpersons Edwin Koehler, Margaret Bishop, Kellyann Tolomeo, Salvatore Zampirri and David Del Conte. Also present were City Administrator Louis Belasco, Solicitor William Kaufmann and Engineer Ralph Petrella.
ADMINISTRATOR BELASCO asked to add four new seasonal hires for laborer in Parks and Grounds. Belasco explained he just received these four new hires this morning. All agreed to add to the appointment list for this meeting. Belasco also spoke about the blocking off of Maryland and Walnut Avenues near Chestnut Avenue. Belasco asked Solicitor Kaufmann to compose an Ordinance contingent upon the final closing on the Wawa property. Rosenello asked if we have a deadline with Kaufmann stating he can have an introduction on May 1st with the final passage on May 15th. Rosenello asked what the physical appearance will be for that street with Engineer Petrella responding whatever was approved by Council. Mayor Henfey asked Petrella if he would supply a couple of options for that area. Belasco informed Council that the final budget has not been approved by the State as of today so we will just be holding the advertised public hearing. Belasco was told by the State, due to staffing cuts they are unable to review our budget in a timely manner. Council cannot vote until we get the State’s approval. Belasco noted the resolution for parking lot rates is the same fees as in 2011 with no increases. The resolution for shared services with West Wildwood is just putting to paper what we have been doing for a couple of years. No contract was ever signed between North Wildwood and West Wildwood but this agreement will now give North Wildwood the right to do inspections in West Wildwood. Belasco is removing the Photos on the Beach bid for today’s meeting. Wildwood went to bid for both towns allowing a booth on the Wildwood Boardwalk to view and make purchases of the photos. There will also be a July meeting with the contractor to review any problems to date. The bid received will give North Wildwood just over $28,000 for the summer season. Belasco would like Council to consider this resolution for next meeting. The photographers do not handle any money at all and also will be wearing nametags. Belasco also told Council there will be two new hires for the Public Works Department that will need to be discussed at the next meeting. Tolomeo reminded Belasco of an upcoming Public Works Committee meeting soon.
On a motion by Koehler, seconded by Tolomeo, that caucus be adjourned. Carried. 9:53 AM

COUNCIL:

MAYOR HENFEY spoke of the Loyalty Day Ceremony on May 3rd at City Hall. This ceremony will begin at 10:00 AM and will include the local VFW members.



HARRY WOZUNK, Public Works Supervisor, announced a ‘Beach Clean” for this coming Saturday on our North Wildwood beaches. The Clean Oceans Act has shore people to clean up any trash on the beach. Wozunk asked for anyone available to come down to the beach and take a nice walk.
PUBLIC:
JOSEPH DIPIETRO, 134B West Pine Avenue, spoke of his property taxes going up from $2,400.00 to $5,700.00 a year. Rosenello feels this is a result of the reassessment recently completed. Rosenello also noted last year we had a zero increase for City taxes

REGULAR MEETING

APRIL 17, 2012
and individual tax bills depend on the assessment rate. DiPietro informed Council he is on a fixed income and asked how you pay this as he is on social security. DiPietro’s first quarter taxes are $2,300.00 and asked if the City has provisions for helping people with their tax bills. Administrator Belasco informed DiPietro to meet with the Tax Collector to go over any options available to him.
HENRY McILHENNY, 115 E. 20th Avenue, asked the number the municipal tax will be going up to….answer $0.611. McIlhenny stated he recently went to the County to appeal his taxes and found 80-85% of sales were for condos and the other sales did not pertain to his lot and property. McIlhenny stated Council can’t keep passing off these increases to the property owners. The City must find a way to reduce spending and expenses in North Wildwood. McIlhenny previously asked Council members back on October 18, 2011 how the City funds special events like the Irish Festival. McIlhenny asked if any information on the funding was put out to the taxpayers. Also asked where does the money come from to pay for these events? McIlhenny would like to see the overtime numbers for the Police officers, cleanup by the Public Works staff, Fire Department expenses, etc. as these should not be funded by the taxpayers. Rosenello remembers reviewing the totals for this event a while ago and the fees that were generated paid in full for this event. Rosenello asked Administrator Belasco to obtain a copy of the readout and send to Mr. McIlhenny. McIlhenny said he purchased his home 17 years ago and the City cannot continue to keep doing increases on taxes.
JIM KOCH, 1301 Surf Avenue, stated at the last four meetings he has asked for the bulkheads at the end of 13th Avenue and JFK which are deteriorating and they also need a bench placed in that area. Koch said he hasn’t seen any work there yet. Mayor Henfey stated this will be done before Memorial Day. Koch also mentioned that at the last meeting it was illegal to pass the budget as there was an illegal amount of Council persons voting. Everything was illegal – Void! Rosenello stated our City Solicitor has assured us it was completely legal. Kaufmann stated “for the record, a quorum is four.”
ADJOURNMENT:
On a motion by Koehler, seconded by Tolomeo, that there being no further business before Council, we do now adjourn. Carried. 10:51 A.M.
APPROVED:
