Mt. Olive Township Council Minutes
August 14, 2001

The Regular Meeting of the Mount Olive Township Council was called to order at 7:32pm by Council President Rattner with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.

According to the Open Public Meetings Act, adequate Notice of this Meeting has been given to the Mt. Olive Chronicle and the Morristown Daily Record. Notice has been posted at in the Municipal Building, 204 Flanders-Drakestown Road, Mt. Olive, New Jersey, and notices were sent to those requesting the same.

ROLL CALL: Present: Mr. Guenther, Mr. Sohl, Mr. Heymann, Mr. Spino, Mr. Scapicchio, President Rattner, Mr. Kaplan, Business Administrator, Mr. Dorsey, Township Attorney, Mrs. Lashway, Township Clerk

Absent : Mrs. Kelly

President Rattner: Explained that Mrs. Kelly had an operation and is recuperating. I would also like to acknowledge the attendance of the Business Administrator, Sandy Kaplan; the Township Attorney, John Dorsey; Township Clerk, Lisa Lashway; and Chairman of our Pride Committee, Ray Perkins. Since Mr. Pinto, who is giving the presentation from Morris County is not here, we will rearrange and do the public meeting portion at this time. Ordinance 20-2001 was continued from the last meeting, which is the commingled recyclables because we didn’t have a signed agreement from the County to provide the service. Mr. Kaplan, can you give us a status on that?

Mr. Kaplan: We did receive the contract earlier this week. We are in the process of reviewing it. Mr. Kennedy is reviewing, the new DPW Director is reviewing it and I sent a copy to the Township Attorney for review. We don’t seem to see any problem with it.

President Rattner: It wasn’t a problem because we didn’t have a deadline. We did plan on continuing it to our next meeting which will be August 28th. So with that, will someone make a motion to continue Ordinance #20-2001?

Ord. #20-2001 An Ordinance of the Township of Mount Olive to Amend and Supplement Section 2-11-2 Entitled “Separation and Collection” of the Mount Olive Code. (Co-mingled recycling)

Mr. Heymann moved to continue the Ordinance to the August 28th Meeting and Mr. Sohl seconded the motion.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously (to continue)

President Rattner: The next item is a Resolution for the execution of a developer’s agreement. This is an agreement between the Township and Fairway at Flanders. This is based upon a subdivision approval. It appears that this was floating around for awhile and some how because we have a lesser number of meetings that we felt it wasn’t fair to make the Developer wait another two weeks because he’s been geared up and ready.

Mr. Spino moved for approval of the Resolution and Mr. Guenther seconded the motion.

President Rattner: Is there was any discussion?

Mr. Dorsey: This is a standard developer’s agreement. Gene and Chuck have given their input for mutual dollars amounts, inspection fees, surety bonds and it has been sent out for final review to Chuck and Gene so I see no reason not to approve it. It will take some time for the developer to accumulate the various documentations and during that period of time we will have the final review.

President Rattner: Seeing no one from the public wishing to speak, I’ll close the public comment section and ask for a roll call.

ROLL CALL: Passed unanimously


1. Approval of Raffle Application #996 for the Budd Lake First Aid & Rescue Squad; Approval of Raffle Application #997 for the Mt. Olive Child Care & Learning Center; Approval of Raffle Application #998 and Raffle Application #999 for New Jersey Vasa Home; Approval of Raffle Application #1000 for St. Elizabeth Ann Seton RC Church. Approval of Raffle Application #1001 for District No. 6, Vasa Order of America.

2. Approval of Renewal of Peddler’s Permit for Charles Yosco, Mobile Food Vendor.

Mr. Scapicchio moved for approval of the Motions and Mr. Sohl seconded the motion.

ROLL CALL: Passed Unanimously
