President Scapicchio: We have one Resolution on the agenda for this evening.


A Resolution of the Township Council of the Township of Mount Olive Confirming the Appointment of Cynthia Spencer as Business Administrator of the Township.

Mr. Ratter moved for Adoption of Resolution of the Township Council of the Township of Mount Olive Confirming the Appointment of Cynthia Spencer as Business Administrator of the Township and Mr. Greenbaum seconded that motion.

President Scapicchio: Council Comments?

Mr. Rattner: I am actually looking forward to having a new Business Administrator. Looking at the information we have received from the Administration, I do have a concern that we are deviating from our personnel policy manual. At this point, unless I know some other information or find out some other information, I would like to make this at this point my vote consistent with the current personal policies that we have in place. If we are just going to bypass them all the time I don't see why we even have them. At this point I would like to confirm this person meeting all our personal practices. The salaries and everything else I do not have a problem with. We know what the job is worth.

President Scapicchio: Exactly what are you talking about Mr. Rattner?

Mr. Rattner: Primarily things like when you are entitled and how much vacation and things like that. Some of the other minor things that may be in there, I don't have as big of a problem with, but it is just for consistency and I look at it as a moral issue too.

President Scapicchio: Do you want to change any language within this Resolution?

Mr. Rattner: I would just like to add the words on there that at this point this job will conform to current personnel practices as documented in our manual.

Mr. Scapicchio: Okay, Mr. Dorsey, where should we include that?

Mr. Dorsey: I think you need a paragraph on the very end to say Be it Further Resolved that this appointment is subject to Ms. Spencer's Employment will be consistent with all existing Township Personnel Polices.

President Scapicchio: Any other Council discussion? Seeing none.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously.

Council: Congratulations.


I Cynthia Spencer, do solemnly square that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and to the Governments established in the United States and in this State under the Authority of the people, and that I will faithfully, impartially and justly perform, all the duties of the office of Business Administrator according to the best of my abilities so help me God.
Cynthia Spencer: Thank you very much
President Scapicchio: Okay. We have no other business. This brings us to the Public Portion of this meeting. Would anybody like to address the Council on any subject? Seeing none, we will close the Public Portion of this Public Meeting. Any Council Comments? Seeing none, we will move for adjournment.
Motion made for Adjournment. All in Favor, none opposed. The Meeting was Adjourned at 7:38 pm.
