Freeholder Grossi moved that the Clerk be authorized to publish the Ordinance in summary form and notification of its passage in the local newspaper in accordance with the law. Freeholder Mastrangelo seconded the motion, which passed with six YES votes. -Director Chegwidden read the following statements prior to the public speaking: AFFORDABLE HOUSING RESOLUTION  Resolution #42 on the agenda this evening is the Freeholders’ response to the multiple affordable housing bills proposed by the State Legislature. The resolution states that we are aware of the need for affordable housing, but reject the Residential Transformation Act, also know as the Foreclosure Bill. As many of you are aware, the Foreclosure Bill allows the State to purchase foreclosed homes and create affordable housing even if the host municipality is not in agreement. Resolution #42 also reinforces support for extending the municipal affordable housing trust fund deadline four years in order to give the municipalities more time to spend the funds they have collected from developers. In the case that the extension approach fails, the resolution also supports Senator Bucco’s bill to allow the return of expired municipal affordable housing trust funds to the County to re-distribute through our Community Development process. All of the Freeholders agreed to add this resolution to the agenda for this evening’s meeting. STATE STRATEGIC PLAN  We just learned that the State Planning Commission will not be releasing the “red-line” version of the draft final State Strategic Plan until after a second public comment period on the original draft has concluded. We understand that only one public hearing will be scheduled and is to be held in Trenton during the day. Conducting another public hearing on the original Draft Final State Strategic Plan serves no purpose, other than procedural, since OPA has already modified the plan. We have yet to receive responses from OPA to our comments on the Draft Final State Strategic Plan. According to OPA, the “red-line” version addresses most of the issues and concerns raised by the County and the general public. However, it is impossible to know if this is accurate until we are able to review the plan.

 

423

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS – MAY 23, 2012
 Prior to the expiration of the 60-day deadline for adoption of the plan, OPA had announced the imminent release of the “red-line” version, which failed to materialize. The New Jersey Office for Planning Advocacy should release the “redline” version of the State Strategic Plan as promised and allow for comment on the revised version prior to the State Planning Commission considering adoption. The Freeholder Board has directed the County Administrator to draft a letter to the Lt. Governor to request that the revised draft or “redlined” version of the Plan be released and that ample time be provided for review prior to the public hearing. A similar letter will also be sent to each of the County’s legislators. -PUBLIC PORTION Jim Harris of Mt. Tabor had concerns about program eligibility and grant process as relates to grant applications for the Mount Tabor Historic District and the J. Smith Richardson History House, as submitted to the Morris County Historic Preservation Trust Fund. Director Chegwidden said the Board will look into this matter. Gregg Foresbrey of Washington Township (Long Valley) spoke to the Board concerning the need of crosswalks and signage on Schooley’s Mountain Road across from Columbia Trail. Administrator Bonanni informed Mr. Foresbrey that the Park Commission plans to have signage and crosswalks in place on Thursday, May 24th. Joseph Keyes, resident of Washington Township, is also concerned about the safety on Schooley’s Mountain Road because of the lack of crosswalks. Robert Steiger of Cedar Knolls thanked the Freeholder Board for the work that was recently done on Whippany Bridge and Eden Lane. Michael Armstrong of Community Hope thanked the freeholders for their support. With their help, they have created homes for 40 individuals and have created 50 jobs. Ms. Patrice Picare, CEO of Family Services of Morris County, thanked the freeholders for all they do for Morris County. Ms. Christine Dwyer of Morris Township would like to see the Mine Hill Freeholder Minutes online. Clerk of the Board Ketchum said she will look into this matter in the morning and will be sure the problem is remedied. Ms. Barbara Eames, resident of Hanover Township, expressed her appreciation to the Board concerning the State Strategic Plan. Ms. Eames was pleased to see Resolution No. 42 on tonight’s agenda. Bernie Schager, resident of Mt. Tabor, feels that there should be tighter control over the grant funds and their use pertaining to the Morris County Historic Grant Program. -RESOLUTIONS Freeholder Cabana presented the following resolutions: (1) WHEREAS, the Agreement with the expert lead hazard in instances where County of Morris wishes to enter into a Shared Services Township of Denville for Lead Hazard Assessment to provide assessment services to the Township of Denville to assist elevated blood lead levels are detected; and,

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that two certified copies of this resolution be filed forthwith in the Office of Director of Local Government Services. -(41) WHEREAS, New Jersey Senate Bill No. 1565 and Assembly Bill No. 2578 of the 2012 session currently under consideration by the 215th Legislature authorizes Internet wagering at Atlantic City casinos under certain circumstances; and WHEREAS, the intention of the bill is to make New Jersey the premier American venue for legal Internet gaming and the flagship for a multibillion dollar industry; and WHEREAS, the adoption of this bill would initially increase casino revenues by $200 million, generating $20 million to the Casino Revenue Fund and could exceed $1 billion in casino revenues and generate over $100 million for the Casino Revenue Fund if New Jersey were to become a hub for internet gaming; and WHEREAS, in recent years the Casino Revenue Fund has lost substantial funding due to a decrease in casino generated revenue; and WHEREAS, the Casino Revenue Fund is constitutionally dedicated to fund services for New Jersey’s senior citizens and disabled residents; and WHEREAS, as the result of the decrease in funding received from casinos the taxpayers of New Jersey have had to make up the shortfall and many of the programs have been severely curtailed; and WHEREAS, among those programs funded by the Casino Revenue Fund are Meals on Wheels, PASP, Respite Care, Para transit, and Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged & Disabled (PAAD). NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Morris that it hereby endorses and supports NJ Senate Bill No. 1565 and Assembly Bill No. 2578 which authorizes Internet wagering at Atlantic City casinos which will significantly increase the Casino Revenue Fund which funds programs for New Jersey’s senior citizens and disabled residents, including Meals on Wheels, Para transit and Pharmaceutical Assistance to the Aged & Disabled (PAAD), among many others. BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a certified copy of this Resolution is forwarded to the Governor of New Jersey, the sponsors of S-1565/A-2578, all our local representatives, all County Freeholder Boards, the New Jersey Association of Counties (NJAC) and the State Human Services Advisory Council (SHSAC). -(42) WHEREAS, the Board of Chosen Freeholders is aware of the growing need for housing that is affordable to low and moderate income people in Morris County; and WHEREAS, the Board of Chosen Freeholders supports the creation of affordable housing through the Division of Community Development and the various non-profit recipients of Community Development Block Grant and HOME funds; and WHEREAS, professional staff of the County of Morris from both the Departments of Human Services and Planning & Development have reviewed the NJ Residential Foreclosure Transformation Act (S-1566/A-2168) and provided guidance to the Board of Chosen Freeholders; and WHEREAS, the Morris County Human Services Advisory Council has provided guidance to the Board of Chosen Freeholders on S-1566/A-2168; and WHEREAS, in spite of the purpose of S-1566/A-2168 to create affordable housing, the Board of Chosen Freeholders has major concerns with the bill; and WHEREAS, these concerns include the State redistributing municipal affordable housing trust fund dollars to municipalities with foreclosed homes wherever they see fit, with no necessary acceptance by the receiving municipality; and

448

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS – MAY 23, 2012
WHEREAS, the Board of Chosen Freeholders previously supported NJ Assembly Bill 2717, which as of May 14, 2012 has a companion bill, S-1894, with resolution #28 on April 11, 2012, which would extend the expiration date four years, for a total of eight years, from which municipalities would have to provide unused municipal housing trust funds to the State; and WHEREAS, without this extension, approximately $20 million in municipal housing trust funds would expire on July 17, 2012, and be seized by the State, instead of being invested in the municipality that collected the funds from developers in lieu of constructing affordable units; and WHEREAS, professional staff of the County of Morris from both the Departments of Human Services and Planning & Development have reviewed NJ Senate Bill 1893, introduced on May 14, 2012, and provided guidance to the Board of Chosen Freeholders; and WHEREAS, S-1893, would allow for expired municipal affordable housing trust funds that are seized by the State to be returned to the County from where the funds were seized, to be re-allocated in that County for the purpose of creating affordable housing. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Morris in the State of New Jersey: 1. We urge our State legislators to reject S-1566/A-2168, known as the Residential Transformation Act, which allows for a State agency to control the purchase of foreclosed homes for the purpose of providing affordable housing. We reinforce our support for S-1894/A-2717, which extends the expiration date four years, for a total of eight years, from which municipalities would have to relinquish unused municipal housing trust funds to the State. We urge our State legislators to support and approve S-1893, which would provide an opportunity for the County to secure expired municipal housing trust funds, use an existing County mechanism for administering housing development funds, and re-invest the funds in the County, in cooperation with an affordable housing non-profit. This resolution shall take effect immediately.
