PUBLIC PORTION
Tom Laureys, resident of Netcong Borough, asked who did not vote for the
Sunlight project either because you were not on the freeholder board at the
time or because you voted against it. (Freeholders Lyon, Scapicchio, Cesaro,
DeFillippo, Krickus did not vote for the project and Doug Cabana and
Mastrangelo voted for the Sunlight project.) Mr. Laureys then asked the
freeholders who did not vote for the settlement of that Sunlight project.
(Freeholders Mastrangelo, Cabana, DeFillippo, and Cesaro voted for the
settlement; Freeholders Lyon, Krickus and Scapicchio did not vote for the
settlement.)
Freeholder Mastrangelo commented that as far as the vote, the policy when he
came on Board, the policy to institute solar was when he was not on the
Freeholder Board. He was on the Freeholder Board for the second round when the
bonding to adopt took place. What was explained at the time is that if we
didnt adopt the bond, since the project was in contract the County would have
been in breach of contract. He also stated that he was here to help clean it
up.
Brendan Keating, Chatham Borough resident and Chatham Borough Commissioner of
Environment Committee, spoke regarding Pilgrim Pipeline. He is in the process
of getting municipal resolutions passed to oppose. He would recommend that
the Board pass a resolution to oppose it. It runs over the aquifer and near
Southern Boulevard and past residences back yards. He submitted copies of
Senate Bill SR106 to the Board along with AR191.
Freeholder Krickus commented that this is supposed to carry docking oil. Has
there been discussion of about potential U.S. Senators if they should vote for
Keystone? If they could deliver oil through Keystone, there is less need ship
it through Lincoln. Mr. Keating said that Keystone would be bringing oil from
Canada. Mr. Keating said he is against the Keystone Pipeline and would like
to keep the two issues separate.
Scott Russell, Montville resident, had basic questions on the budget. Youre
proposing to increase to $12 million. Where is that money coming from?
Mr. Russells second question is Your power point mentioned the restructuring
of the Countys financing approach. What does that mean?
Mr. Russells third question was The proposed spending $100,000 in 2018 for
Library Caf. What is that about?
Regarding solar, Mr. Russell felt that the County seemed to rush into the
settlement. Why? He didnt feel that there was transparency.
Regarding panels, Mr. Russell asked: What is the life cycle of the panels?
What happens at the end of the life cycle. Who pays to fix them? You passed
the settlement and then you said we will now investigate. The Improvement
Authority is right in the middle of it. It is costing the County $16 million
for this one settlement. Should we continue with the Improvement Authority?
Please do some more investigation next time.
Treasurer Kovalcik:
The answer to Mr. Russells first question about where did the $12 million
increase come from is the following. $5.5 million came from State Human
Service and Mental Health Costs that were passed down to us. $1.5 million
came from additional staffing at OTA.
$1.8 million in debt increase due to
the second round of Solar II, $1.2 million anticipated salaries adjustment,
and $1 million increase in group insurance and $300,000 for various Human
Service grant programs.
Administrator Bonanni also added: The $5.5 million that Mr. Kovalcik was
talking about related to the State Human Services grant. Only about $700,000

191

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


is actual County tax money.
The balance is coming in from the State to pay
for that. It comes in by statute.
The second question was what is the restructuring of the debt? It is
maximizing the cash flow, looking into the lowering the cost of the issuance
when we are issuing debt and then also on top of that by doing this it is
going to help us mitigate some of our interest costs.
The answer to the third question regarding the Library Caf is the following:
Mr. Kovalcik said By law we have to do a 6-year capital plan so that is in
the out years, but it will be re-examined. Mr. Russell thinks the Library
Caf would be frivolous.
Mr. Russell was wondering about the Improvement Authority. What is the life
cycle for that? Will it be canned or continued? If $16 million is going to be
spent on the settlement, why continue?
Freeholder Cesaro said that this is more a policy question, and the Freeholder
Board would like to discuss it first.
Freeholder Krickus said that it is a good policy to talk about and that the
Improvement Authority should continue to do what it was originally meant to do
which includes road projects and town projects.
Freeholder Lyon commented there should be a policy discussion and maybe the
Board could think about creating a subcommittee who can reach out to the
municipalities that have utilized the Improvement Authority, get their
feedback, and come back to the full Board and have a policy discussion. Maybe
at the next meeting there could be a discussion about creating a subcommittee
or not.
John Pellington, Butler resident, spoke about solar and transparency and the
budget.
He felt that at the time it was well intentioned, but it is proven
now that the solar endeavor was a total failure. That being said, these
solar projects might never have happened if at that time the Freeholder Board
had taken more input from the public. What is going to happen going forward?
What is this Board going to do to insure the public is part of the major
decisions by having more discussion and input at the public meetings?
Mr. Pellington asked if the current debt is $220 million. Treasurer Kovalcik
said the debt is $235 million. Mr. Pellington asked what is the projected
date for the County to be down to zero debt.
Freeholder Krickus answered that the County is paying debt at $10 million a
year. Obviously, that is going to depend on future policy decisions from the
Board. We project to do that over 6 years at $64 million but stated that will
be up to future Freeholder Boards.
Freeholder Cabana:
There were 5 counties who did renewable energy projects:
Morris, Sussex,
Somerset, Mercer, and Union.
It was a public private partnership which would
utilize private investment funds, tax credits and grants to provide solar
energy at public buildings at no expense to public entities. All of the
information given to the Board, which was 5 different freeholder boards
including the market data all indicated that everything was all positive.
Everything that was done by the Authority and the Freeholder Board and was
done in public session. Of the 35 Freeholders that consist on the 5 boards,
18 were democratic and 17 were republicans because of 3 republican counties
and 2 democratic controlled counties. All the Freeholders voted yes in their
respected counties. There was only one member of the public who came to speak
against these projects in the 5 counties. That was in Sussex. No one came from
any of the other counties because what was presented was a positive thing.
Morris County itself, based on CCM and the Mennen Arena will save millions of
dollars over the course of this. All of the public entities that had
subscribed will save tremendous amounts of money like 40% on their electric
bills over the course of time. There is no shortage of entities that wanted
to get on line here. That is why we were having 71 projects among our 3
counties up here. Thats why I believe the engineering that did this was
overloaded and didnt know because it was such a positive thing.
Joe Basralian, Chatham Township resident, thanked the Board for their

values is an enormous risk. He is in favor of PSE&G. He believes the
pipelines could leak. He would like the Board to consider one of the
resolutions that Chatham has passed against it. He left reading material for
the Board.
Ken Dolsky, Parsippany resident, gave a proposed resolution to oppose the
Pilgrim Pipeline. Mr. Dolsky, Brendan Keating and Joe Basralian are requesting
that the Freeholder Board put on the agenda for the next meeting a resolution
that would oppose the pilgrim pipeline.
George Moken, Morris Township resident, thanked Freeholder Krickus for
standing tall on behalf of the taxpayers calling for full disclosure and
investigation regarding solar. He thanked Freeholder Scapicchio for his
stance on voting against the settlement and calling for an investigation.
thanked Freeholder Lyon for keeping his opposition against the solar. He
asked what is the status of the investigation.

He

Administrator Bonanni said that the morning after the meeting he contacted the
State Comptrollers Office and talked to an investigator who asked for
information which Administrator Bonanni put together in a comprehensive email
form to him that he sent to him last Friday and thats where it sits at this
point at the State Office.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said to Mr. Moken, I appreciate as freeholder everyone
who comes to this public meeting and ask questions. As far as settlement,
everything that took place took place in closed session with all seven
Freeholders. Six Freeholders voted for settlement in closed session. More
than once, we gave our attorneys direction and more than once the $16.3
million was a threshold that was set by every Freeholder for our law firm to
go and see if we could settle on that figure. We have minutes in closed
session that describe that. We had an economic decision to make whether we
litigate and spend millions of dollars to do that, We had several scenarios.
Im going to ask our attorney and Mr. Bonanni to keep me straight on this. If
we would have litigated and lost, I was told and we were all told that it
would be in the millions of dollars that we would have been hit for. If we
litigated and won, we would be looking at a higher number than what we settled
for. If we settled, we were told by the attorneys and the professionals that
it was the best economic decision for the County. As far as the
investigation, we put up a resolution last week for the State Comptrollers
Office to come in first. If needed the State Attorneys General Office will
come in.
If the State Comptrollers Office does not come in. Freeholder
Krickus and I talked about this earlier. If the State Comptrollers Office
does not come in, then a resolution will be put together for an outside firm
to come in and to take a look at this transaction. If the outside firm finds
anything else then any other unit of government can come in and take a look.
No one up here has done anything wrong. No one up here has made secret deals.
No one up here has done anything except to govern the best way we can on this
situation. My decision was an economic decision and to minimize any more
losses for the taxpayer.
Mr. Moken said that he still feels that the public was not given any of the
details.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said Because we were in litigation, we were advised by
our attorneys that we had to keep this in closed session and could not
compromise either the litigation or negotiation. We were transparent when we
were able to be transparent based on the advice of our attorneys.
Mr. Moken felt that all the questions they we were prepared to ask were about
Solar I and Solar II and what was going on with the project. He felt they
were outside the realm of the litigation process and the settlement.
Counsel OMullan said that we go into closed session for those items that are
identified as in the section of the Open Public Meetings Act that are either
required or permit closed session. Mr. OMullan said that if Mr. Moken wants
closed session minutes from those items, he can make a request for them.
Mr. Moken feels that the Board selectively reframes the issues for the public
after the closed sessions.
Ray Newman, Wharton resident, said the logic behind the advice that was given
originally for the solar project appears to be contradictory compared to the
logic that Freeholder Mastrangelo talked about. He is suspicious of
government. He asked what were the papers that Freeholder Scapicchio held up
last week? Why was there such a rush to get the settlement done?

193

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


Counsel OMullan said The reason as I understand it, is that we hired a firm
to represent us who were experts in the area of bonding and transactional
matters and also with the litigation. The litigation situation had reached a
point where some of the parties had been put through arbitration.
All of the
parties had been through mediation, and it reached a point where settlement
was on the table and was being negotiated among the attorneys for a period of
time. It was a complicated situation involving 3 counties, and 3 county
boards. It was either settle the matter or move on with the litigation. It
was dictated entirely by the schedule and the numbers set up by the on-going
litigation situation.
Mr. Newman asked if they were suing for services rendered.
Counsel OMullan said that it was a very complicated situation and a complex
case. The time had come for this thing to either settle or not to settle and
move on that was dictated by the state of the litigation not just because the
Freeholders here decided it was time to settle.
Mr. Newman hopes there is an investigation but did not hear about a follow up.
Freeholder Mastrangelo:
I support the resolution I put up and if the comptroller decides not to come
in and investigate, I support a resolution to bring a third party in.
Joe Farrandino, Stirling resident, said that the last time he was here he had
a question for Administrator John Bonanni concerning a bond and was wondering
what the status was concerning a surety bond on Sunlight and MasTec.
Administrator Bonanni:
There was a performance bond on that, and I will have to get that answer from
the attorney.
Mr. Farrandino said I did some investigation and it was mentioned under CSA
who supposedly has the bond, and that bond was only for one year and the
project didnt start until the time limit on the bond was over so basically
that meant that there was no surety bond or no guaranteed of performance. The
attorneys who did the investigation for the solar energy debacle - - - one
name keeps coming up. This firm; the same name. That firm; the same name.
Youre having the Attorney General look into this. You have the State
investigate the State. Sunlight is insolvent and going bankrupt. Makes all of
this public notice and an investigation by the federal government not the
Board, not the State.
I want to know what happened and why it happened and
how its not going to happen again.
Scott Russell, Montville resident, asked questions about the solar panels.
What is the life cycle of the panels? He asked if Birdsall Engineering was a
party to this project and was it involved in any way with the Morris County
projects. In terms of completing Solar II, when does the County anticipate
making a decision whether to finish those projects and how will it investigate
the costs?
Administrator Bonanni said his understanding is that the panels will have a
life time longer than 15 years based upon the energy consultants. The
concepts were that they would last far beyond 15 years. Mr. Russell asked who
will pay for them after the 15 years? Mr. Bonanni said that after the 15
years they would be the Countys and they could still produce PPA revenue for
the County. Regarding Birdsall Administrator Bonanni said he will have to go
back and look. He asked Mr. Russell to leave his contact information.
Mr. Russell asked if the freeholders have accepted any donations from Birdsall
Engineering. All the freeholders answered no.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he is one of the few Freeholders that any time
there is a resolution for Birdsall in this county, he does not vote on it.
Mr. Russell asked What about completing projects on Solar II?
process and timing? Who is investigating costs and problems?

What is the

Administrator Bonanni said We have Gabel Associates going site by site to


take a look at which of the potential future sites could be productive ones
verses non-productive ones at that point that information would come back to
the Freeholder Board to be discussed. Gabel Associates are the energy
consultant to the Improvement Authority.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he made a suggestion that he and the Administrator
will discuss this again that we bring in somebody to do a risk analysis on

194

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


completing those sites or not completing those sites. Part of that risk
analysis is the impact on what the County does pay out or does not pay out.
The recommendation at the moment if we decide that this is completed is if the
sites are completed there is less cost to the County. He would like to see a
risk analysis done to see which way is it better to not complete the sites . I
actually prefer not to. But if it makes more sense financially to complete the
sites that needs to be looked at. He would like to see an independent firm
come in.
Barbara Eames, Hanover Township resident, said that when this project was
approved in 2011, a young Freeholder had the foresight to do some
investigation into this and found the information that perhaps was risky. If
the Improvement Authority looked at things more closely, this would not have
happened. We should use common sense and stop relying on these experts.
Regarding experts, information is out there. The same people who were doing
this research and setting up this financial instrumentation knew that it was
going to fail but did not think that it would fail that soon. It was set to
benefit all these people who are on the inside and paid their commission up
front. If it fails they do not lose anything. Steve Gabel who is looking at
sites for the future if we complete this was in on all of this. Now going
forward, you are still using the same people. She doesnt think this is the
best route to take.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he would like to explore and will be talking to
the Administrator tomorrow about this to bring in a third party potentially to
do a risk analysis on whether we complete the sites or not. He feels this is
a sound way to go. It needs to be someone who is familiar with this
technology.
Freeholder Scapicchio said he would like to propose that we hire a new energy
consultant. He feels it is in the Countys best interest to have a new set of
eyes to look at this. It is not to say that the existing energy consultant did
anything wrong, but he is suggesting that we need a new set of eyes.
Freeholder Mastrangelo feels this is a good suggestion.
Counsel OMullan suggested that we put this on the agenda at the next meeting
and gather whatever information is needed.
Ms. Barbara Eames, Hanover Township resident, said that some of the folks in
the Governors office are from Morris County. How independent is the solar
study going to be?
Freeholder Mastrangelo said that if the State Comptroller decides not to come
in, he supports a third party to come in. This will cost taxpayer dollars to
do this, but he would support that. If the State Comptroller did an audit,
wed have to see what that looked like and take it from here.
Barbara Eames said she doesnt feel we would get an independent opinion.
Ken Dolsky, Parsippany resident, asked if the Board if they will put the
Pilgrim Pipeline resolution up for a vote at the next meeting.
Counsel OMullan said he was not sure that the Board is ready to answer Mr.
Dolsky at this time. When you make policy decisions, you have to take your
time about it. If you want someone from my office or Administrators office
will let him know when a decision is made. Typically a few days ahead of the
meeting, we will post the resolutions. The Freeholders are not together every
day, so we will try to arrive to a concensus. Counsel OMullan said that he
heard from some of the freeholders that they would like to put a resolution
on. What he will try to do between now and the day of the next meeting is to
see if he can get a concensus as to what the Board wants to do and if Mr.
Dolsky leaves his phone number, he will personally get back to him with a
phone call.
Bill Eames, Whippany resident, thanked the Board for their deliberations as it
concerns the solar issue. He had a couple of questions for clarification.
The budget was introduced tonight. When it was first put together, the solar
settlement had not been on the agenda. Does the settlement numbers that were
named, does that reflect the budget? How would that be reflected? Its
amazing that this one issue wipes out the history of the savings in the
Improvement Authority. Do you have any way to project State budget
reimbursements. He feels the State is in trouble financially. The budget went
up nearly $12 million this year. He encourages the Board as they begin to do
the 2016 budget, to look at it carefully to see whether it can be done as

195

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


before since the economy will probably be in 2016 that we may not be able to
do everything that has been done
Maybe you can find out ways we can cut.
Treasurer Kovalcik said the question regarding if the solar settlement will
come out of this budget, it will not. We have other funds at hand such as
reserve funds. Counsel OMullan said it is not our account; it is held by a
trustee for us.
Freeholder Lyon said that $10 million the other account that is being held by
the trustee is the bond money so about 33 million, $10 million of it is coming
out of that $33 million. So, where it is definitely our money, theoretically
the SRECs pay back that $33 million. So as long as that happens we expend a
million but wed be getting electricity from SREC sales that would pay that
pack.
Mr. Eames said the $7 million taken out of reserves would be reflected the
following year by an adjustment to what the reserves are and that would lower
our balances in those reserves accounts.
Mr. Farrandino, Stirling resident, commented about road repair. To repair
potholes, usually asphault and heated tar. Have you ever considered infrared
asphalt repair?
It uses the asphalt that has been dug up already. Deena
Leary, Director of Public Works and Planning will look this up on the
internet.
Mr. Moken, Morris Township resident, had a question on the budget.
Regarding
Sheet 3B which is an analysis of compensated absence liability, it shows that
this year that this liability stands at $10.7 million up from $110,000 from
last year while at the same time the reserve that we have for this up $2.8
million is down $190,000 from last years reserve for this liability has
gotten $300,000 worse than last year so we now have an unfunded liability from
last year of $7.6 million to an unfunded liability of $7.9 million. Please
explain why we are doing this.
Treasurer Kovalcik said that this is a calculation that is done on an annual
basis. This is taking a look today. What would be the value if everybody
retired today with the necessary years of employment. This is a look at
everybody if they left the County today. We would be on the hook for $10.7
million. If you look at the aging of the work force what we do is take a look
annually what we envision as far as retirements. Last year we had a number of
retirements.
Administrator Bonanni said As an example, Ive been here a long time and
probably have a year and a half worth of sick time which is reflected on that
chart. In all likelihood you are never going to pay that out. When I retire,
that goes away. While there is a requirement by law to put some of that down,
not all of that are real dollars.
Mr. Moken said You have calculated notwithstanding that the liability could
be $10.7 million and you have reserved $2.8 million and feel that is the true
liability. Otherwise if it is greater, then why are we not reserving more?
County Treasurer said What we do is grow that reserve account annually.
Mr. Moken said It has actually gone down so it has gone down $190,000 while
the liability has grown 110. We are $300,000 worse off than last year if you
are looking at the total liability. What do we think the real liability is?
Is it the $10.7 million or $2.8 million or something in between?
Joe Kovalcik answered that it is something in between.
Mr. Moken said that we are not reserving enough if it is something in between.
We should be looking at that when we are budgeting. He was looking looking at
a line item and is looking at the Freeholder list and accumulated absences
have gone down but the value of the compensation has gone up so we have less
hours but the total compensation has gone up. Mr. Moken asked why is that?
Are we paying at different rates are we paying at todays rates?
Freeholder Lyon said a lot of this is due to unpaid sick time. Freeholder
Lyon said that statutory County employees received 15 sick days per year. It
is the law. The County has capped the sick pay out that employees can receive.
We have 41 bargaining units and depending on the bargaining unit it is a
little different.
Treasurer Kovalcik said this is a statutory calculation, and he has to follow
the rules that are set before him.

196

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


Mr. Moken recommended that the County come up with a list of unfunded
liabilities with an explanation so the taxpayer is informed.
Ms. Eames said she finds this a much more productive meeting tonight. Thank
you. She appreciates Freeholder Scapicchio suggestion that we look at
something different. Regarding solar relating to the budget, general question
is to whether the costs that we are going to pay to settle this are going to
get added to the top part of the budget or will there be any attempt on behalf
of the Board to look at the expenses to say I really didnt anticipate that.
As you go through this budget since you havent adopted this budget and the
next years budget together, does it always have to be the same as what youve
done before? Concerning solar, Ms. Eames wondered if the Board plans to put
out a release to the public into a very simple statement. She also wanted to
know if you got hit with unexpected solar costs, how would the Board work that
into the budget.
Freeholder Scapicchio said we need to prioritize as we did this afternoon in
the work shop with the budget. Freeholder Krickus made a presentation and we
compromised and prioritized and it worked.
Freeholder Krickus said we need to be vigilant every day of the year. He
asked Treasurer Kovalcik to put together actual reports on spending not
budget. Our spending has been flat and he is proud that our surplus is up
which means we are financially strong.
He was very tempted that we should
have reduced taxes last year because we were getting payroll things on the
pension. From a policy point of view, it was better to have built surplus than
take the hit. You can not repeat using surplus every year. That is why you
have to stay vigilant with the expenses every year. We have to set the tone
for our staff to know that we are constantly looking for ideas for savings.
Freeholder Mastrangelo added: For the past couple of years we have been
looking at the possibility of part-timers. Civil service has always been the
issue in trying to do that. We do prioritize every step of the way with the
budget. We had the issue with the nurses being paid on a per diem basis but
now because of the federal law we cannot pay them on a per diem basis and are
being forced to add them to the payroll or we will be in violation with the
law and will be fined. We do look at everything. As you all come up and make
suggestions, I would like to hear a suggestion from you where we should cut.
Ms. Eames said that last year they talked about the meals on wheels program
that is free. It has no bearing on income and need. We talked possibly about a
donation that could defray some of the costs. We are not trying to take
anything away from those who need it.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he remembers that we heard this last year, and
there was an issue about taking donations last year.
Administrator Bonanni said Donations are accepted, but by law you cant ask
for them.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said that regarding meals on wheels there will always
be a percentage that will take advantage of the system.
Ms. Eames said that the increase of the budget this year is $12 million
because of the solar settlement. Does that come out of the surplus or next
year do we say that next year cut $3 - 4 million so it does not affect the tax
payer.
Treasurer Kovalcik said Going forward taking what our guaranteed payment may
be on solar will be factored into some of how I will be issuing debt in the
future.
Ms. Eames questioned whether there is a statement from the Board as far as a
release about the solar settlement.
Administrator Bonanni said he sent emailed the Board last week with a proposed
statement.
Freeholder Krickus said that the vote was 4-3 so it is hard to get a statement
that reflects the Board but the statement will contain facts and less
commentary.
Mr. Moken said:
Three things were brought up by the Board that he wanted to comment on.

197

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 11, 2015


First, he said that the Board relied on the Improvement Authority when they
backed the bonds. You called them a third party.
No one ever without their
own review listens to a third party
Second, you finally say now you are going to look at what the cost is for the
completion of the projects are. For you to say settle or not settle, you need
all the information. One of the key points is what is the cost of completion
and what is the up side to complete and how does that affect the settlement?
Maybe it is better not to settle but you had to investigate to get more
information. It did not give us enough time to ask questions.
Third, you are now taking tax payers input. When it came up that you were
using an consultant that was used originally. You should get a whole new
slate of consultants. You should not go back to the same people.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he did not hear any Freeholder invite any existing
consultant.
