Letter to Wildwood Crest Clerk

Issue Detail:

November 29, 2013 Janelle M. Holzmer, Clerk Borough of Wildwood Crest via e-mail only to jholzmer@wildwoodcrest.org Dear Ms. Holzmer: I am a bit confused by your November 26, 2013 response to my records request. Part of my confusion stems from the fact that the set of minutes that I\'ve placed on-line here (20131118Open) do not set forth the date of the meeting in the first paragraph. (All that is said is that the meeting \"was held in the Municipal Court Room at 1:00 p.m.\" but no date is given.) I\'m pretty sure from your November 26, 2013 e-mail that this meeting was held on November 18, 2013, but I think it would be better practice (and comport better with N.J.S.A. 10:4-14) if the minutes contained the date of the meeting in the firt paragraph. Beyond that, I am confused by the second paragraph of the minutes which claims that the Open Public Meetings Act was complied with \"by posting notice on the bulletin board in the Borough Hall and by mailing same to the Gazette-Leader, the Herald and The Press on November 28, 2012.\" Resolution No. 890-12, as published in the Cape May Couty Herald Times on December 12, 2012, does not contain any reference to a November 18, 2013 meeting. Furthermore, item 10 of the Commissioners\' November 25, 2013 meeting agenda show that November 18, 2013 meeting was a \"special meeting.\" Accordingly, I believe that the second paragraph of the November 18, 2013 minutes are in error in that they don\'t accurately set forth the manner in which the public was given notice of that meeting. Would you please ask the Board of Commissioners, at its next meeting, to resolve to amend the November 18, 2013 meeting minutes so that they comport with the Open Public Meetings Act? Thank you very much. John Paff, Chairman New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project P.O. Box 5424 Somerset, NJ 08875 Voice: 732-873-1251 Fax: 908-325-0129 e-mail: paff@pobox.com
