HEARINGS ON ORDINANCES

Ordinance #4139

First reading by title only on July 21, 2009, advertised July 24, 2009 and posted on the bulletin board.

Mayor to declare the hearing on Ordinance #4139 open, asking if anyone wishes to comment on this ordinance.

Joan Davis, 976 Alpine Drive - feels the reason for this ordinance was to save the Clerk time in reading names; discussed a three page memo delivered to the office outlining the internal inconsistencies, contradictions, and opportunities for residents to be denied public access; the entire tone of meetings will be changed; democratic process at local level will not recover; if you want to save the Clerk's vocal chords, do it in other ways; feels the ordinance was poorly written; subcomittees are not defined in the Code or in the ordinance.

C. Hameeduddin made a motion that the hearing on Ordinance #4139 be closed and that it proceed to second and final reading by title only.  Seconded by C. Gussen and carried by the following vote:

In Favor: C. Gussen, C. Hameeduddin, DM. Parker, C. Honis, C. Toffler,  Mayor Feit.

Opposed: None. 

Absent: C. Katz

The Clerk read into the record:

ORDINANCE #4139 - AN ORDINANCE AMENDING SECTIONS 2-15 THROUGH 2-22 AND APPENDIX I OF CHAPTER 2 OF THE CODE OF THE TOWNSHIP OF TEANECK RESPECTING COUNCIL MEETINGS AND RULES OF PROCEDURES.

Mayor Feit -  agrees with the concept of doing away with Workshop versus the Regular Meetings; separate meetings will enable Council to have time to discuss issues among themselves; from the public relations perspective, with only two meetings per month, it may seem as though less work is being completed when in fact it is the same amount of work but in concentrated form; feels the meetings will flow smoothly.

C. Gussen - removal of designation of Workshop Meetings does not mean Council cannot structure the agenda for a particular item; a meeting may be structured to have a "workshop environment"; the sooner everyone becomes acclimated to the new process, it will not seem so strange; Council still has the ability to schedule an additional meeting when necessary; within the confines of this ordinance, there is flexibility.

DM. Parker -  with respect to the meeting schedule, three meetings are actually scheduled, the third one on an "if necessary" basis; will use the third meeting when necessary.

C. Toffler - having a clear distinction with regard to the separation is valuable to the Council as well as the residents; can vote if necessary, at a Workshop Meeting; gave the definition of subcommittees; the purpose of the subcommittees should be specified in an ordinance.

C. Gussen -  state law legislates that all committees are created to pursue a legislative goal, based on specific issues.

C. Honis - agrees with compiling roll call; compiling multiple hearings may be confusing to the public.

C. Gussen - increasing speaking time would benefit the residents, allowing more time to speak on specific issues.

DM. Parker -  the ordinance allows flexibility to pull items, if necessary.

C. Gussen -  the ordinance enhances the flow of the meetings and the task at hand; feels Council should move forward with this; if the ordinance needs to be modified down the road, the Council has the power to do so.

Mr. Turitz - subcommittees are addressed in Rule 8; discussed the definition of subcommittees; new ordinance will expedite 95 percent of the business conducted at the meetings; flexibility to break up any hearings at any time, if necessary.

C. Hameeduddin made a motion that Ordinance #4139 be passed on second and final reading and adopted. Seconded by C. Gussen and carried by the following vote:

In Favor: C. Gussen, C. Hameeduddin, DM. Parker, C. Toffler, Mayor Feit.
  
Opposed: C. Honis.
  
Absent: C. Katz.

Ordinance #4141

First reading by title only on July 21, 2009, advertised July 24, 2009 and posted on the bulletin board.

Mayor to declare the hearing on Ordinance #4141 open, asking if anyone wishes to comment on this ordinance.

Joan Davis, 976 Alpine Drive - Ward Plaza has been described as totally grant funded yet the capital budget has $625,000 of which $593,750 have been authorized by notes; ordinance does not express whether or not a commuter parking area will be provided; the entire presentation on Ward Plaza has been misleading.

C. Honis made a motion that the hearing on Ordinance #4141 be closed and that it proceed to second and final reading by title only.  Seconded by C. Hameeduddin and carried by the following vote:

Ordinance #4142

First reading by title only on August 3, 2009, advertised August 7, 2009 and posted on the bulletin board.

Mayor to declare the hearing on Ordinance #4142 open, asking if anyone wishes to comment on this ordinance.

Chief Robert Wilson spoke of issues with the present police vehicles; referred to conversation with Mr. Fehrenbach, then Interim Manager, about the police vehicles and the possibility of purchasing only three vehicles; Mr. Fehrenbach indicated that three new vehicles would not be enough taking into consideration the condition of the present police vehicles; a couple vehicles were lost due to collisions, a couple of vehicles had blown engines, and twenty-five percent of the vehicles have over ninety-thousand miles; the Chief was informed that there was $80,000 in the budget for the purchase of police vehicles; wanted to purchase SUVs (Jeeps); found a Ford dealership that had three on the lot; the vehicles met the needs of the Teaneck Police Department and subsequently put in the purchase request for these vehicles.

Mayor Feit - reflected on the discussion of the vehicles; came to the attention of Council that money had to be moved around in the Capital budget; questioned if the new vehicles would be used for patrol purposes.

C. Gussen - choice of vehicle meets the needs of the TPD, what about hybrids and/or other vehicles that are cost-effective.

Chief Wilson - hybrid vehicles are not used for this purpose are not really cost-effective; there is a lack of availability for hybrids; not opposed to using them.

DM. Parker - basically, purchasing these vehicles would allow more vehicles out for patrol.

Chief Wilson - there is a necessity for the new vehicles; we should be purchasing six but will settle.

DM. Parker - should have had this conversation at the time of the budget approval.

C. Gussen - if the vehicles are not purchased now, what is your foresight?

Chief Wilson - definitely six will be needed with a possibility of eight.

C. Hameeduddin - is it your professional opinion that these cars are necessary at this time?

Chief Wilson - yes.

Art Vatsky, 950 Garrison Avenue - respectfully disagreed with the Chief; will be sorry if these vehicles are purchased; they are outmoded vehicles from a bankrupt company; they are inefficient; better choices can be made for non-patrol vehicles; it should not have to come from the capital budget if it is a purchase that will only last for a period of three years; should check with other police departments, including New York, and inquire as to what type of vehicles they are using.

Alan Sohn, 752 Cottage Place - needs to be an overall strategy for purchasing police vehicles; the price is good however, what will be the operating cost of the vehicles down the road; other vehicles should be considered in order to make a more educated purchase.

Joan Davis, 976 Alpine Drive - everyone trusts Chief Wilson; we have become a little more hard-nosed than we should be.

C. Toffler made a motion that the hearing on Ordinance #4142 be closed and that it proceed to second and final reading by title only.  Seconded by C. Hameeduddin and carried by the following vote:

In Favor:   C. Gussen, C. Hameeduddin, DM. Parker, C. Honis, C. Toffler, Mayor Feit.

Opposed: None.

Absent: C. Katz.

The Clerk read into the record:

ORDINANCE #4142 - AN ORDINANCE  APPROPRIATING $80,000 FROM THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUND OF THE TOWNSHIP FOR THE PURCHASE OF POLICE SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES.

C. Toffler - does not feel she can support at this time; much work is going to be done on the budget this year; is thinking in terms of a five to ten year span; there are other purchases which will have to be made; does not feel this money should come from the capital budget.

C. Gussen - concerned with the purchase of Jeep vehicles; concerned with purchasing additional vehicles at this time; times are tight and we must all do more with less; does not feel he can support this ordinance at this time.

Mayor Feit - feels the Teaneck Police Department has put a lot of money back into the budget this year and has made many sacrifices; this was put together as a compromise solution by Mr. Fehrenbach, that is why it falls under the capital budget.

Mr. Broughton - this was a project that was inherited; the plan has always been six vehicles per year; this is something that needs to be done; the present vehicles are beyond repair and should not be in service; the SUV's are an excellent compromise; fuel efficient vehicles are more costly; should stay on schedule with the purchase of the vehicles.

C. Toffler made a motion that Ordinance #4142 be passed on second and final reading and adopted.  Seconded by C. Hameeduddin and carried by the following vote:

In Favor:   C. Hameeduddin, C. Honis, Mayor Feit
