-PUBLIC PORTION

Bill Eames, resident of Whippany, felt there is a lot of borrowing in


the bond ordinances. He asked if this is consistent in on-going efforts to
reduce the amount of borrowing each year.
Director DeFillippo said that the County has reduced the borrowing and
kept it at $25 million for capital, and we continue to pay down debt each
year.
Mr. Eames said that often we finance out of operating budget on a
projected basis out of the regular budget rather than money borrowed for that
and you have to pay interest and the bond counsel fees.
To clarify, Freeholder Lyon said that not all of this is bonded.
They
all dont authorize debt.
Some of the furniture is paid from the capital
budget.
Mr. Eames had a second question:

Three meetings ago we talked about Together North Jersey Regional Plan.

Their time table was getting to and end. The Board sent a communication to
them asking for a consideration saying that if it was not delayed, we would
object to all the elements of that. His understanding is that Together North
Jersey responded and said three days and they would not grant an extension.

126

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JUNE 10, 2015


Have there been received any other communication either from HUD, Together
North Jersey, or the State Planning Office?
Director of Planning and Public Works, Deena Leary, said she has had no
communications. Mr. Eames appreciates the Boards actions.
Mr. Eames said that Counsel OMullan is leaving soon and he
congratulated him for his service.
Third item:
Regarding County Solar I and Solar II issues, Mr. Eames has been following
that and concerned about the amount of obligation that the County has taken
on. He sat and listened to the process at the Improvement Authority meeting.
His understanding is that there have been the appointments of a new Counsel
and Freeholder Advisory Committee working with that.
The second process was
to hire new energy consultants that are advising and making recommendations.
(Administrator Bonanni said that was correct.) Mr. Eames said with working
towards a December 31, 2016 deadline, we have 18 months.
Concerning Resolution 39, Mr. Eames asked if the County will proceed
with that project and hire that energy consultant or is there an on-going
process. He is confused as to what this resolution does.
Director DeFillippo said that we will know after the vote. This
resolution would hire an energy consultant.
Administrator Bonanni said When we hired the new MCIA attorney, we did
it in reverse because the Freeholder meeting was first and then the
Improvement Authority meeting followed the new Board approved Counsel Jessup.
Today at the Improvement Authority Meeting the recommendation was to hire an
energy consultant to analyze the EPC proposals and evaluate them if deemed
appropriate to take us through the construction of those sites. The
resolution that the Improvement Authority adopted was contingent upon the
Freeholder Boards approval.
Mr. Eames said That consultant would be the one who evaluates the 13,
16 or 19 potential buildout sites with recommendations of yes or no from
there. Is this what this would do?
Administrator Bonanni said That consultant would take the EPC quotes
that Counsel Jessup referred to and go out to the sites and do exactly what
you said. If each respective site appears to be profitable, then discussion
and analysis would continue.
Mr. Eames said So that starts the process when we go forward with the
build and no build questions and gets the data that you need so you can get
those answers to go forward.
Administrator Bonanni said That would start the build and no build
committee. We originally had 3 committees: the attorney, the energy and the
build no build.
Mr. Eames said that we are in the process to begin to get the decisions
we need to make so we can move forward.
He said he appreciates the
clarification.
George Moken, Morris Township resident, said that earlier today he
attended the Improvement Authority meeting and made a request for them to
review their documentation retention program to make sure that all documents
pertaining to the MCIA and the solar projects were retained and that any
document retention program would not be put into effect for destruction of
documents. He would like to be sure that all documentation pertaining to
solar be retained beyond the statutory requirements. He urged the Board to
inform everyone in the County to retain these records. He asked the Board if
they are in favor of that.
Counsel OMullan said While there was litigation going on there was a
hold for the litigation. When the settlement took place in the cases when
dismissed and it all disappeared, what youre requesting is that we go beyond
the law and make a point of preserving all of the records that relate to
solar?

127

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JUNE 10, 2015


Mr. Moken said that is what he is requesting that we extend the time and
not destroy these records.
Counsel OMullan requested that Mr. Moken make this request in writing.
Mr. Moken said it was imperative to make the decision now and not wait.
Director DeFillippo asked what determines the time to retain documents.
Counsel OMullan said it varies according to the type of document. Contracts
have a much longer retention than emails.
Administrator Bonanni said that a lot of that information has been
OPRAd so we have the information, and it would not be destroyed.
Counsel OMullan said In particular, minutes, which have been the
subject of a number of requests, those have to be maintained forever. It is a
part of the permanent record. It would require a motion from the Board to
change our position to your point of view.
Freeholder Lyon made a motion not to destroy anything pertaining to the
solar programs regardless to our current retention policy until a later date
if the Freeholder Board wanted to change it.
Freeholder Mastrangelo seconded the motion.
Director DeFillippo asked for a roll call.
Freeholder Cabana NO*
Freeholder Cesaro - Yes
Freeholder Krickus - ABSENT
Freeholder Lyon Yes
Freeholder Mastrangelo Yes
Freeholder Scapicchio Yes
Director DeFillippo Yes
* Freeholder Cabana felt this is a totally unnecessary request and that we
need to follow the law.
Mr. Moken spoke about a second point he wanted to discuss. He said he
knew that the Board had passed a resolution to ask the Comptroller of New
Jersey to look into the solar projects.
Director DeFillippo said the Comptrollers office did review and made
the recommendations, and Administrator Bonanni in the last meeting explained
that.
Administrator Bonanni said The Comptrollers office took the matter and
did an internal review.
At the conclusion of their internal process, they
decided not to pursue it, and they based their decision on three specific
reasons. One was that the contracts were contracts that were approved by the
local governing body. The second reason was that there was a decline in the
SREC market and the third reason was that there was litigation with the
developer and the contractor.
Mr. Moken asked if this was a recent decision.
Mr. Moken said if the Comptroller doesnt feel that there should be an
investigation or a review of these projects, he thinks others would agree with
him that we should still have an investigation or have the Freeholders decided
not to have a review.
Director DeFillippo said A decision was made that we had the
Comptrollers office review it and give us their comments and they gave us
their review and felt there was no need to go further. We have talked about
there have been several attorneys one in particular that weve hired 2 years
ago who did a review. Weve had reviews done and 2 other counties have had
reviews done, and weve decided at this point that we have decided to go
forward and were pursuing the next stage of this whether were going to build
or not build to try to reduce the exposure to this county.
Mr. Moken said So youre saying that your decision has been made that
you are not going to go further with any further reviews of these projects.
Did everyone vote that way?

128

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS JUNE 10, 2015


that.

Freeholder Lyon thought the majority of the Board does not want to do

Mr. Moken, as a taxpayer wanted to know what the vote was.


for no further review and who voted for further review?

Who voted

Director DeFillippo said Mr. Moken wants to know whether we wanted to


pursue hiring somebody else to do an evaluation about this project. Im being
told by my attorney that you can make a request to get that information.
Director DeFillippo said There was not a vote. It was a general
consensus and there was a majority who decided not go further with an
investigation. We were satisfied with what the Comptrollers office came back
with that we hired an attorney.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said The resolution that went up that was voted
on by the Board and was presented by me was for the State Comptroller to do a
review of the process of the transaction and the Administrator explained that
to you. It was a vote for the review to take place. Anything else, if it
would be a further review, it is something that this Board would discuss and
decide if they would continue. I object to you colluding about any kind of
vote by this Board or consensus of this Board. On the record there wasnt one.
The only vote was on the Comptroller. We moved ahead with that and for
anything further this Board could deliberate and come up with an alternative.
There has been no other consensus about anything else.
Mr. Moken asked Are we proceeding with further investigation or not and
what are your plans?
We should know if you are contemplating or proceeding
with any further investigation.
Director DeFillippo said At this point we dont have any plans.
Mr. Moken said Regarding Resolution 39, I dont know how you will vote
tonight. I was in the work session. I would like to state that we need a
cogent and considered opinion on this. Time is of the essence. The schedule
is not our ally here. I would hate to see a decision made by the calendar. I
urge the Board and MCIA to make this the highest priority. I urge the Board
to move the process ahead concerning the build, no build.
Tucker Kelly, Rockaway Township resident, spoke to the Board public
records and archive management and specifically addressed some of Mr. Mokens
concerns. Mr. Kelly spoke also regarding the need to thank employees and the
little people who do so much for the County without any recognition such as
the election office downstairs which has a small staff. Laura Roberts runs
that office. They have a Superintendents office upstairs supervised by Ms.
Kramer. He asked the Board to take the time to thank them including the
County Clerk, Ms. Grossi and her Deputy Clerk, John Wojtaszek.

WHEREAS, The New Jersey Council on Special Transportation (NJ COST) is a
not-for-profit statewide advocacy organization that for over 34 years has been
dedicated to promoting, supporting and providing information and education
about New Jerseys paratransit and community transportation services; and,
WHEREAS, The County of Morris is a member of NJ COST, which includes
each of the 21 County coordinated transportation systems, as well as
municipalities, community-based not-for-profit providers, private agencies,
New Jersey Transit and other government agencies; and,
WHEREAS, The County of Morris funding through the Senior Citizen and
Disabled Resident Transportation Assistance Program provides critical
transportation and assists Counties in providing and developing accessible
transportation services for senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
Services include, but are not limited to, non-emergency medical appointments,
dialysis, physical and mental therapies, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, noncompetitive workshops, employment, nutrition sites, meals on wheels, food
shopping, Veteran services, recreational activities and many other services;
and,
WHEREAS, Today the County of Morris is facing a critical shortage in
grant funding, which is derived partly from proceeds from the Casino Revenue

source; and,
WHEREAS, It is imperative that additional funding be provided to the
County of Morris to ensure and maintain current services and service levels.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the
County of Morris, supports additional funding in the State of New Jersey

transportation funding back to 2012 levels.

County of Morris, send copies of this resolution to Governor Chris Christie,

Comments regarding Resolution 39:

(Made by Doug Cabana)

I was prepared to vote one way based on information I had received and now I
have received other information which contradicts the information I initially
received so I am somewhat at a quandary at this point knowing that I have to
vote. I readily agree with Mr. Moken but I do agree with him that this needs
to be moved forward. We need to begin construction on the build out and were
up against the clock on finishing these projects so it is important so with
respect to that Im going to abstain on Resolution 39 because I really cant
make a decision either way at this point based on the information I have.
Freeholder Mastrangelo voted NO on No. 39 because he has some concerns about
it.
Director DeFillippo said the following regarding the resolutions:
