of those items.

Mr. Neidhardt said so this is approving issuance but not for a specific
Treasurer Kovalcik said, Yes.

Freeholder Mastrangelo asked Mr. Kovalcik about the $2 million that is


coming out of OIT, are the vendors identified in that? There was considerable
spending on the IT infrastructure a few years which was $1.5 million on TERIS.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said he would like to have some time to speak with
C.I.O. John Tugman if the Board would allow it before we approve this
ordinance.
Freeholder Director DeFillippo said that this came through the
capital budget.

Barbara Eames, East Hanover resident, said she was going to ask the same
questions as Jim Neidhardt. The lifespan is not very long and seems like a
replaceable type of thing. It seems like a lot of money, unlike a road or
bridge, which would last for a longer period of time. Ms. Eames asked how the
decision is made as to what we bond and what we pay for out of current
expenses.
Cathy Burd, Assistant Administrator, said that a lot of it is larger
expenses such as fiber line and cable since we have different locations that
we need to share internet connections from the Communication Center on Hanover
Avenue to the training center there. We are also looking at being able to
deliver internet services at places such as downtown Morristown up to the hill
as well. We had a problem during Super Storm Sandy. These are large projects
that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars that really make up for that. The
rest is for standard computer equipment that we do use beyond the 5 year
lifespan.
There were no other public comments, and the Director declared the
Public Hearing closed.
Freeholder Cesaro moved that the ordinance under consideration be
adopted on the second and final reading. Freeholder Cabana seconded the

Director DeFillippo stated: The Public Hearing is now open.
Mr. Eames, Whippany resident, asked about the non-passenger utility
vehicle and asked for a description of what is being purchased.
Assistant Administrator Burd, said it is for 12 vehicles and equipment
to outfit them since they are for the Sheriffs Department. The Tahoes or
Durangos are not able to carry passengers in the back seat but need to carry
tactical equipment and canines. It is an aging fleet, over 7 or 8 years old,
and have over 100,000 miles on them.
Administrator Bonanni added that these vehicles in particular service
every town in the County so they increase their mileage very quickly.
Freeholder Lyon said that if you look at the Countys fleet and as a
whole, it is quite old. That is why you are seeing a large number of
purchases.
There were no other public comments, and the Director declared the
Public Hearing closed.
Freeholder Cesaro moved that the ordinance under consideration be
adopted on the second and final reading. Freeholder Cabana seconded the
motion.
The Clerk called and recorded the following vote:

-PUBLIC PORTION
Jim Neidhardt, Whippany resident, said he understands that the Board
will need to make decisions about solar. He came to provide some information
concerning PV Portal America. He feels if the Investment Tax Credits are not
extended, it will put the taxpayers at risk. This is a big political gamble.
Administrator Bonanni said he believes he can clarify some of this. We
do understand that what we call 1603 federal grants which is the Tax Credits,
and we know they are good until the end of next year. They are used for
construction so you get those once and then it is over. It is not something
that is repetitive that you would get year after year.
It is not in the
model that we will be discussing with the Freeholder Board clearly the money
sitting in trust fund plus the tax grants with the understanding that it has
to be completed and operational before 12/31/16 or else we lose the 27%. Once
you get that up, you only get that once so you get that for construction. It
is not something you get every other year so that is a consideration and is
something that was built into the models and was built into the numbers that
were presented by the Improvement Authority as to the swing as to whether we
build or not build.
Mr. Neidhardt said If this doesnt get approved, there will be massive
layoffs and companies going out of business.
Administrator Bonanni said But were not using a company.
we would be constructed by 2016.

If we built,

Freeholder Mastrangelo asked Mr. Neidhardt to provide us that


information that he has researched. (Mr. Neidhardt gave it to Administrator
Bonanni.)
Mr. Eames said Regarding solar projects and replacement of Resolution
No. 26, I am confused concerning the order of the process of how this take
place where the Freeholders adopt the resolution tonight and then tomorrow it
comes before the Improvement Authority how the audit takes place.
Administrator Bonanni said The resolution that the Board is approving
is just endorsing the recommendations of the proposal of the committee.
Tomorrow night the Improvement Authority will officially award the contract.
Mr. Eames said, So the committee looked at it using joint participation
of the Improvement Authority and the Freeholder Board. Does that award end
the involvement of Pearlman and John Inglesino, the company with the MCIA?
Administrator Bonanni said What will happen
tomorrow evening, to the great extent, yes, but to
individual items that they are working on it would
let them continue involvement with those items but
handled by the new counsel.

Mr. Eames said At the last meeting there was a question about the
statement by several members of the Board to take a look at what had taken
place with Solar II and how that whole problem evolved and how we avoid the
repetition of mistakes from occurring again. The question is does the Board
still intend to do an investigation of that.
Director DeFillippo said that a thorough review was done with the
Comptrollers office.
Administrator Bonanni said I provided the Comptrollers Office with the
information. I have not received a letter from the Comptrollers office, but
when they did call me, they advised me that they have an internal review
process and, they reviewed the information from all counties and took it
through their review process. At the conclusion they decided to do no further
review. On a phone conference with them, they based it on three criteria.
100

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MAY 27, 2015


1. The original contracts were approved by the governing bodies as respect
to the towns.
2. There was a decline in the SREC market.
3. There was a legal dispute between the developer and the contractor.
They felt that in their analysis those three criteria ultimately
resulted in the failure that this project was not what was originally planned.
Having said that, the County did originally hire an independent counsel who
ultimately is now going to become the new Improvement Authoritys counsel.
That counsel has recommended and built in a number of safeguards. As an
example, the MCIA will have authority over various subcontractors. There are
a number of factors being built into what potentially could be the build-out
contracts for the unbuilt sites that would provide significantly enhanced
safeguards. In addition to that, the RFP for energy consultants which is
currently under review allows the County pick up the two energy consultants.
One of those energy consultants could be the lead and project manager and the
second energy consultant could be more of an SREC consultant and I will be
happy to sit with you.
Mr. Eames said There were other counties that were having problems and
many other states as well. His concern is that we learn from the mistakes and
we dont replicate them. At this stage in time then the Freeholder Board does
not envision any further investigation beyond what was done by the
Comptrollers office?
Director DeFillippo said I am comfortable with what
office had to say. I also felt that the attorney that was
years ago to do a second review did that and the other two
their own attorneys to look at it and we ultimately agreed
that we were not informed but now we are looking at how to
original contracts and to learn from those mistakes.

the Comptrollers
hired almost 2

Mr. Eames said that he was not aware of the conference discussion. All
of this depends upon the decisions of subsidy and support and propping up and
making something that is not economically viable work to the benefit of
whomever they want it to work for. What he feels what is happening over time
is that in the many many states that have undertaken this they are finding all
sorts of unspoken problems like the disposal of panels which causes an immense
environmental problem. As we go forward, he does not want to see the County
get in a position of failure.
Director DeFillippo said that the general consensus of the Board is that
we do not want to see it fail. We have not made a decision whether we will or
wont go forward or not.
Administrator Bonanni said The simplest thing you would have to do
first is to name counsel and two energy consultants. Once that is done and
you get individual EPC cost estimates and PPA output from each site, you have
to do exactly as you said and evaluate each site of how much it will cost what
kind of revenue might be generated. This will get us to a is it in the Black
or Red. If its Red, you push it to the side, and if its Black, you keep it
on the table. You have to do that on all of the unbuilt sites and also we
were looking at additional sites just I case some of the unbuilt sites didnt
work and maybe there are sites that will generate more black than red and in
those cases you may opt to do. We have identified a number of County
buildings and we have also reached out to the Morristown Airport to see if
there is an interest. It is not an easy thing to do because you have to find
the right place.
Barbara Eames said she has attended the Sussex County Freeholder Meeting
because of discussions about solar. She found it interesting because there was
a very length discussion and questions with the public and freeholders. There
was much more detailed conversation. There was a lot more detail of
information.
It seems that a committee of the body like the Improvement
Authority would present to the body a recommendation and then that
recommendation would come to the Freeholders for approval after the
Improvement Authority. It seems backwards to her. Does that represent
anything significant or change of authority level where the Board is approving
it first? Tomorrow night, she feels that the public will not be able to ask
any questions before it is approved.
Administrator Bonanni said Tonight just the Freeholders approve the
recommendation of the proposal review committee. Tomorrow evenings

and we know the end point is December 31, 2016. We are 18
that. I believe that construction is going to be 14 months so
lot of time left.

Freeholder Lyon said that the ultimate appointment is by the Improvement


Authority. They are an independent authority and they have the legal
authority to hire the attorney that they want. We are working cooperatively
and putting it into writing so everyone has their say. This is technically a
non-legally binding vote until they sign the contract.
Administrator Bonanni said that in all likelihood it will be approved
tomorrow night. He has discussed it with each of the commissioners
independently after the review scores were in and every commissioner was happy
about that.
Freeholder Lyon asked if the Board can veto the Improvement Authority.
Administrator Bonanni said that the Freeholder Director has veto power.
Ms. Barbara Eames said On the investigation by the Comptrollers
Office, there was a lot of information about our governor and his support for
solar and his brother Todd Christie who started a solar company and
participates in a vendor who provides services to Sussex County. When this
investigation went to the Comptrollers office there was not a lot of chance
that this was going to be investigated. I suggest because his brother has a
solar company that is providing services to at least Sussex County. Im just
suggesting that we are not going to get an unbiased review from them. I do
believe that this is not the end of this that we dont get an unbiased opinion
on this I believe you are only going to get an impartial investigation on
this if the County goes out of state.
Director DeFillippo said that going back to prior years of when she came
on board, an attorney was hired to review this. She said she spoke to each of
the Freeholders because she couldnt understand why there was a second lawyer
who seemed to be repeating everything. She was told it was a second set of
eyes to review to be sure everything was being done correctly. That attorney
came back and said there was nothing. We spent a lot of money for a second
attorney to do another review. We brought it to the Comptrollers office.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said that the second attorney was brought on
behalf of the Freeholder Board to start to look at the transaction for both
Solar I and II. He believed a second attorney that was retained did a great
job in looking at the whole transaction in working towards the ultimate
settlement of this issue. Concerning Todd Christie and Vanguard whoever they
are, they were not involved in this project and Morris County was not involved
with the bond of this project. So whatever is going on with Todd Christie and
Vanguard, they are not involved with Morris County. We are working very hard.
In regard to the resolution with the attorney tonight, I think we are being
proactive in taking a look at who we hire if we did not do that, we would have
somebody here at the next Freeholder meeting to see why didnt we look at it.
No matter which way we go, someone will criticize the process. I think we are
being very transparent about the process and I welcome any additional input
from anyone from the public. Criticizing the process is one thing and he
respects that but he invites suggestions from the public for alternatives.
Ms. Eames said shes not criticizing but seeking that whatever went
wrong, she doesnt believe the public knows. She believes there is very
little discussion at the Freeholder meetings.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said The transactions, the dollars and
everything that was spent was provided to the public. A lot of time was spent
with the Administration discussing with you and other members of the public.
If there is anything else you are looking for, I welcome the specific
suggestions on what you are looking for so we figure out how to find it.
Ms. Eames asked Can you explain to me why John Inglesinos name shows
up as a vendor and chairman and Pearlman does not? Pearlman was paid under 3
different firms. His name does not show up on the April 1st document at all.
Administrator Bonanni said That is correct. Steve Pearlman separated
from Inglesino in 2014. Inglesino and Pearlman at the time was Counsel to the
MCIA. During the interim, the Improvement Authority used the Inglesino firm
and Inglesino paid Pearlman for the respective services. The RFP for new
counsel went out in November 2014 at which time the Pearlman Miranda firm was
102

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MAY 27, 2015


obtained by the Improvement Authority. As I explained in my email to you last
week, we have not paid those bills yet. I believe some of them were approved,
and at that point Steve Pearlmans name was on the bill. It took that long
for payments because the bonds were held up because of litigation and the
funding was locked up.
Ms. Eames said There is no documentation in the information we received
of how much money that Pearlman was paid. His name did not appear on the
document.
Administrator Bonanni said We hired a firm so when we paid the
Inglesino Pearlman firm, I would have no idea of how much money went to John
Inglesino or Steve Pearlman or how much went to an associate. Pearlman
Miranda bills were not paid, but will be paid tomorrow night.
Ms. Eames asked, If Pearlman was the attorney, then what role did
Inglesino play?
Administrator Bonanni said that they were partners. The name of the
firm at the time was Inglesino, Pearlman, Wyciskala, and Taylor.
Ms. Eames asked Did Inglesino personally have nothing to do with it?
Was it always Pearlman to provide service?
Administrator Bonanni answered, For the most part, yes.
Steve Pearlman was the main attorney.

Predominantly

Ms. Eames asked It is safe to say that all of the monies on that
document went to Pearlman?
Administrator Bonanni said that the money went to the firm.
Freeholder Lyon said that no one has a right to know how they split up
the funds in a private corporation.
Barbara Eames said So basically you are saying that Pearlman was the
attorney.
Ms. Eames said she had one final comment: There was a process that was
suggested just a month ago to have a committee that will look into whether or
not we proceed or not, and there was a suggestion that somehow the public
might participate in that discussion. Is that going to take place?
Director DeFillippo said that the committee has already been identified
and was announced 2 weeks ago.
Ms. Eames asked, There is no public for those committees?
Administrator Bonanni explained, The build, no build committee goes
through a process where it will go through a closed session because they are
viewing bids from different companies. Once their deliberation is done, it is
my expectation that all of that would be presented to the public.
Ms. Eames said, There has to some part of that discussions that is
policy as to whether we proceed or dont we proceed.
Director DeFillippo explained that the committee will be doing that.
Ms. Eames said, But there is no member of the public that would be
invited to even sit in and listen to the deliberations.
Freeholder Lyon said that the only thing that he feels that there should
be an independent member of the public present.
Freeholder Cabana said I dont think its a question as to whether or
not were going to build. Its a question of how much were going to build.
We have to build something because the estimates of the $23 million additional
monies that the County would have to pay if we dont will be devastating. The
question is what we will build, not if we should build. The public has an
opportunity now so Ms. Eames can talk.
Mayor Nicholas Platt, Harding Township, said over 54 years ago the New
Jersey legislature recognized that the State is becoming the most populated in

103

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MAY 27, 2015


the union.
Mayor Platt would like to protect open space and feels the County
should be thinking of raising the open space tax and not running away from it.
