    OLD BUSINESS

    1. 319h Grant –

      1. Reminder-please submit your in-kind hours report for the current period ending August 9;;

      2. Colonial Terrace Golf Course – 20 volunteers participated in the planting effort which was successfully completed as scheduled. Mr. Everson advised that he checked the area and the plants seem to be thriving despite the extremely hot weather.

    2. Shark River Dredging/Neptune Landfill – no update at this time;

    3. Deal Lake Master Plan – Mr. Everson continues to work on the draft;

    4. Sunset Avenue Bridge Reconstruction – no new information at this time;

    5. Asbury Park Boat Ramp – Ms. Henderson advised that the next step is to hook up the water; residents are being urged to take some of the remaining excess material to be reused; she also reported that some of the flatter pieces of slate will be turned into benches for the area.

    6. Monmouth County Shared Services/ Dredging – Mr. Everson reported that the Township Administrator has been slow to respond to requests for a follow-up meeting; Mr. Everson will continue to press the issued so the arrangement can be formalized and the County will initiate the permit process. Mr. Everson also advised that the Village of Loch Arbour and the City of Asbury Park will have to be consulted/participate in the dredging proposed for the eastern end of the Lake near the Flume.

    Dr. Souza, who could not be present this evening, submitted the following information to the Clerk earlier this evening:

    1. Weed Treatment – treated Sunset, Colonial and Hollow Brook arms of the lake. Focus was on the topical treatment of lilies in Sunset and Colonial using a contact, liquid herbicide. As requested, we left the area by Linda’s (Beauchamp) house alone. In Hollow, due to the abundance of submerged plants, we treated with a systemic granular herbicide. This will knock down the lilies and “seaweed”. It takes about 14-21 days for complete die-off. The Sunset and Colonial were treated on 2 July and the Hollow Brook arm this week. We’re already seeing the impact to the plants in Sunset.

    2. Boom relocation – we relocated a section of the boom over by APHS to Sunset arm. It is installed at the mouth of the outlet from the Colonial Terrace arm (north side, east of Wickapecko). We observed far more trash in the Colonial Terrace arm than in the Hollow Brook arm, and thus decided to install it there. It’s angled so that the debris is deflected to the south for easy access and trash removal. Mr. Everson reported that the material used to attach the boom had already broken and any trash collected during last week’s storm has been dispersed into the lake again. He will so advise Dr. Souza.

    NEW BUSINESS

    1. Other – There was a suggestion by Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioner Mike Harmon to establish a county park in Asbury Park with the purchase of the Bradley Cove site and incorporate it with Deal Lake into a regional park. Ms. Henderson advised that iStar, the owner of the property, is not interested in developing it now, but will want a substantial amount of money to sell it. Commissioners will continue to monitor these reports.

    2. Resolution #3: UPON MOTION of Ocean, seconded by Allenhurst, carried, that the sum not to exceed $1,000 be and the same is hereby authorized for payment to Bill Schmidt, website designer, for the purposes of training the Commission Clerk and any interested member on the necessary procedures to update the website.

    RECORDED VOTE:
    Ayes: Allenhurst, Asbury Park, Deal, Loch Arbour, Ocean
    Nays: None Absent: Interlaken, Neptune

    There were no members of the public present. There being no further business, and UPON MOTION of Ocean, seconded by Asbury Park, carried, that the meeting be adjourned at 7:30 PM.
