« on: March 16, 2004, 01:27:11 AM »
Please note:  some terms are hyperlinked.

Monday, March l6, 2004 - 8:00PM

1.  Roll Call
2.  Flag Salute

The following resolutions were unanimously approved:

3.  Approval of Minutes: March 1, 2004
4.  Resolution #073 - Approval Of Refunds
5.  Resolution #074 - Authorization - WQM-003 - Lincoln Street Development.  (Will find out more about this.)
6.  Resolution #075 - Authorization to Release Performance Guarantees
7.  Resolution #076 - Award Bid - Electronic Service Solutions, Inc. (Radio Communications contract for H.P.D - $816 per month).
8.  Resolution #077 - Approval of Raffle Applications (Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church)
9.  Resolution #078 - Authorization of Planning Board Preliminary Investigation of "Redevelopment Area" (Essex/Green/Newman Streets - Property on which City temporarily stores salt piles.)  This areas is to the east of the Essex Street NJ Transit Rail Station.  Apparently, the city is hiring a "planner" to advise on the "highest use" of the property.  The mayor indicated that the site could conceivably play a part in the "Transit Village program".  Stay tuned.  
10.  Resolution #079 - Transfer of Tax Overpayment (Routine).
11.  Resolution #080 - Authorization to Execute Petition of Appeal to Bergen Co. Board of Taxation. (Routine)
12.  Resolution #081 - Approval of Application for "Click It or Ticket Funding"
13.  Resolution #082 - Approval of Application for "FY2005" Federal Grant (Will try to find out the nature of the grant sought).
14.  Resolution #083 - Payment of Bills (routine).
15.  Resolution #084 - Endorsement of BCCO Grant - Helpline Services for Youth (no city funds).
16.  Resolution #085 - Emergency Temporary Appropriation (routine).
17.  Resolution #006 - Transfers - 2003 Budget Appropriations Reserves (routine).

Members of the public commented and/or questioned the following:

1.  The nature and scope of Resolution 78: "Redevelopment Area" and its potential uses.  The Council responded that this would be clearer after a professional planner makes some recommendations.

2. S. Goldberg Property on River St. The County Gov. is interested in relocating its Police and DPW to this site (next to Costco).  A resident suggested that city council members attend the 3/17/04 Freeholder's meeting to further explore the relocation.  The resident further suggested that a study be conducted to determine the impact of the relocation and to ascertain which site is more economically and practicably feasible for Hackensack residents.   Click HERE for more information about this.

3. Another resident asked when properties in the City would undergo a tax re-evaluation.  The mayor opined that this would happen within the next two years.  

4. Another resident made some comments with respect to legal bills (this was unclear to me)

5. Finally, one resident followed up on an inquiry concerning the abadoned bank building owned by Mr. Peter Tucci on Main Street and whether taxes could be increased (presumbably in the hopes that Mr. Tucci would then find a tenant or sell the property).  

Attendees of the meeting are encouraged to clarify and correct this summary.
