COMMITTEE COMMENTS:

 

Committeeman Braden stated he proposes a resolution asking our professionals to reduce their fees by ten percent due to the tough economic times.  Our professionals have reduced their annual fees, and I would like to thank them for that.  Going forward, I would ask that all the Boards and Commissions ask their professionals to reduce their fees for the year going forward.

 

RESOLUTION RECOMMENDING THAT ALL BOARDS SOLICIT FEE REDUCTIONS FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE BOARD PROFESSIONALS:

 

WHEREAS, the Township of Montville has experienced budget issues and understands the financial burden facing our residents in this economic climate, and

 

WHEREAS, the Township Committee has been successful in obtaining reductions in fees and retainers from its professional consultants, and

 

WHEREAS, the Township Committee recommends that all Township Boards, Commissions and Committees follow the Township Committee’s example.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Township Committee of the Township of Montville, in the County of Morris and State of New Jersey, that it is recommended that all Township Boards, Commissions and Committees seek a ten percent reduction in fees from their respective professionals including, but not limited to engineers, attorneys, planners, auditors, consultants and secretaries, and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED in the event that this request is not honored by those professionals, those effected Boards and Commissions enter into ninety day temporary appointments of those professionals to allow for more competitive bid solicitation.

 

Motion:  Braden.  Second:  Kostka.  Roll call vote – all yes.  Resolution adopted.

 

Committeewoman Nielson wished everyone a Happy New Year.  She looks forward to working with Scott Gallopo, Deputy Mayor Braden and everyone else on the dais.  She will miss Art Daughtry.

 

Benediction – Rabbi Mark Finkel.

 

Meeting adjourned at 7:50 p.m.  Motion:  Braden.  Second:  Kostka.  All in favor.  Motion approved.

 

Respectfully submitted,
