It was moved by Mr. Marko, seconded by Mr. Packard, that the reading of the minutes of the Regular Meeting of Council held Monday, March 4, 2013, copies of which were mailed to all Members, be dispensed with and said minutes stand approved as circulated.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed unanimously, with Mr. Gambatese abstaining.
 
MAYOR'S REPORT - Mayor Cicero stated the Contract with A&S Animal Control will provide more services at less cost thanks to the negotiating skills of the Finance Director. The Mayor also noted the City is going on record opposing HB 5 with Resolution 2013-16.
 
FINANCE COMMITTEE - Chairman Ward highlighted the following minutes:
"The Finance Committee met Thursday, February 28, 2013 at 6:30 PM. Present were members of Council, Mr. Frey, Mr. Gambatese (at 7:05pm), Mr. LoPresti, Mr. Marko, Mr. Packard, Mr. Schlessel and Mr. Ward. Also present were Finance Director Mary Kovalchik and Mayor Cicero along with two members of the public. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss budget appropriations for 2012. A copy of the Draft Appropriation Budget had been distributed to all members of Council in advance of the meeting for their careful evaluation in preparation for this session and many questions had been posed prior to the meeting.
 
"The Committee's discussion began with the consideration of the Capital Requests that had been presented by the various Departments and the Lyndhurst Municipal Court. The Committees of Council had reviewed these requests at meetings held over the past few months. The items listed in the current Draft Dated February 4, 2013 (pink) have all been recommended to the Finance Committee for approval, pending availability of funds with the exception of the two Community Center items which were just recently clarified for relamping and chair replacement which are also before the Committee for consideration.
 
"Every Department stepped up, once again, to reduce the list of items needed to what is absolutely necessary to provide for smooth operations. Chairman Ward advised the Committee that, in a discussion with Mayor Cicero and Chief Porrello, the Police Department is extending the automobile rotation by six months which will eliminate the need to fund that item this year which will defer $91,600 in expense. He also clarified the need for the community center requests. The following total amounts have been approved:

"It was moved by Mr. Frey, seconded by Mr. Marko that all items be approved for funding. A voice vote was taken with all members voting aye.
"Chairman Ward then turned the Committee's discussion to the consideration of General Fund Expense items opening with the following statement:
"It is no secret that we have spent the past 6 months or so intently reviewing our programs both in public meetings and in Council and Administrative reviews of how services are rendered to our residents.
"There is not one of us who has not heard from our residents that "we pay high taxes here" which is an accurate statement but they are generally referencing the property tax bills we all receive. I do need to remind everyone that for every $1 in property tax we pay our City only receives around 14 cents to help us provide all of the services our residents expect us to provide and they expect us to provide those services in the highest quality manner possible. While property tax is not our only source of revenue it is absolutely the first place our residents point when we are talking taxes.
 
"Over the past six months I have asked my colleagues to look critically at our services and determine if there are any facets of our operations that we have not looked at thoroughly or any areas that need closer review. This is far from the first time we have done this and we learn something every time. The result of this exercise has yielded some benefit in dollars and much more in understanding exactly how much is at risk.
 
"You have all received the analysis provided by the Finance Director on our General and Capital Funds and it is clear, despite our continued efforts and diligence, every opportunity that we have taken advantage of is met with new challenges to rise to. It is also very clear that we are lucky to have done all of the things that we have done when we have done them and that our departments and our employees have worked with us in this effort. We would be having a very different conversation today if that were not the case.
 
"The cautions that the Finance Director has laid out for us are no different today than they were when she laid them out last year or the year before that and every year before that and they are no different than she spelled out for the previous Council way back in 2005. Fortunately, every year since then, this Council has worked cooperatively with the Administration to make needed changes in operations in order to protect the services that we have defined as important for our residents and our community. So, the pressure is not off, we still have work to do.
 
"I want to start off by again thanking each of you who have taken on the responsibility of delving deeper into the various functions affected by our departments. Certainly, if we are going to start anywhere, it must be with a clear understanding of what our people do before we can clearly analyze how they do it. With that understanding we can place a priority and a value on that aspect of our services to assure Council's expectations - which should mirror our residents' expectations - are being met. Without that understanding we cannot effectively weight our budget decisions."
 
"The Committee's attention was then directed, as always has been done, to the summary of Line Item Requests by Department which provides a clear snapshot of budgeted operations last year as compared to what was actually expended against the projected budget needs for the coming year. Mr. Frey noted the Administration and Departments have done a tremendous job living within the limited resources the City has available returning significant money unspent at the end of each year. The total requested for 2013 is 1.0% more than the 2012 approved amounts and if every dollar is expended- which it will not be - would total 10% over last year's actual expense.
 
"The Committee then began a review, by Department, of the line-item General Fund Budget requests. The Committee considered funding the operations of the City as follows:
