Mr. Sylvester stated he spoke to DPW Supervisor Josh Raff regarding the following: Clay as budgeted in the DPW budget to be spread on both Veterans fields, Ready for August and Rec equipment that was recently purchased can be used to maintain fields. Mr. Raff’s response (as per Mr. Sylvester) was Both Fields are not prepared to accept clay delivery, Township Committee cut DPW Budget therefore clay cannot not be purchased at this time and he is not sure how the equipment purchased by rec will perform on field when they had to use heavy equipment before spring season to bring fields to usable condition. Mrs. Tosti stated Softball and Kittatinny Little League maintained the fields during their season and time of field use. Mulch: Stillwater Park and Veteran’s have been mulched. Mr. Sylvester will email Mr. Raff as a formal request in writing. Mrs. Gardner also noted Mr. Raff was contacted to please bring soccer equipment to Volunteer Field and leave by the shed.
Fencing was discussed, the CFO contacted the Recreation Commission regarding a phone call received from a trucking company that would be delivering 300ft of fence. Not aware of any fencing orders made by Recreation Commission the Commission and Recreation Secretary told the CFO it was not a delivery for the Town.
