The Mayor and Council discussed the hours of operation regarding professional landscapers. The
consensus was to leave the hours permitted per the noise ordinance with the exception already in

joining the system in addition to the senior taxi service already in place. Council agreed nan Plawker
should look into the system further.

The path would be on Palisades Interstate Parkway's property, but paid for by Englewood Cliffs. It
will be an expensive project with a lot of engineering requirements. There are environmental and
location issues that would interfere with the construction. nan Plawker will inquire at the State level
to see if there would be any assistance regarding funding for the.projec t. It was suggested that more
stringent measures be taken to control the bicycle riders. .,

The idea of a south bound only entrance to the Palisades Interstate Parkway at East Clinton Avenue
was proposed as a solution to alleviate traffic backing up on 9W . The Mayor discussed the idea with
the Mayor of Tenafly who also likes the idea. E. Carter Corriston will call Jim Hall at the PIP to
discuss the concept.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT

Mrs. Cohen announced that there will be a flu shot clinic this fall, no date set yet. The vaccine supply
is very good this year.

ADMINISTRATION:

Mrs. Fehre reported that the department head meetings have been re-initiated by the Mayor this
month, the meeting went well, communication is key for all departments and Mayor & Council.

REPORT OF THE MUNICIPAL ATTORNEY:

Mr. Corriston stated that the Cingu lar case keeps going on , a trial date is set for February 3"', 2009.
If it is decided that the Board of Adjustment was incorrect in denying the variance, the case ends. If it
is decided that the Board of Adjustment was correct, Cingular will challenge the borough's
ordinance.

NEW BUSINESS:

Mayor Parisi brought up for discussion the item of maintenance of borough right of ways. This item
was listed on the caucus agenda, but not discussed in caucus.

Mr. Bialko stated that at this time the borough is maintaining certain right of ways in town, which are
not borough properties. Confusion regarding these properties came about due to the locations and the
builders installing fences giving the appearance that these properties do not belong to the owners
adjacent to them.

E. Carter Corriston will speak with the Tax Assessor to determine definitively who owns these
properties. Once identified, it was suggested that the town inform the residents involved, continue to
maintain until the end of this growing season, then it will be the property owners responsibility. It
was noted that the town has a ten foot right of way throughout the entire town, which of course the
town does not maintain.

The Mayor mentioned the recent memo distributed to all employees and volunteers regarding
mailings, flyers, etc., which are sent to the community. No mailings or flyers are to go out unless
approved by the Mayor or Admini strator and copied to the Council. This way everyone is equally
informed.
