Public Participation

Open Meeting to the Public for Items Other than Those Listed on the Agenda

Ms. Wexler addressed the board regarding the Tennessee Pipeline application. Ms. Wexler distributed photos showing the results of what were done by Tennessee Pipeline and what happened since their departure, including the mudslide at Great Gorge Village, windshear damage which caused the loss of approximately 100 feet of trees, dried up areas which once were wetlands, as well as many others. Ms. Wexler stated the need for monitoring and supervision of Tennessee Pipeline and stated that they are 2 years behind in reporting to the Highlands Council. It was proposed that we invite them here to have a meeting before any more work/maintenance is done.

Beverly Budz, chairperson of the environmental commission, came forward and suggested a partnering of the land use board and the environmental commission for the purpose of getting representatives of the Tennessee Pipeline to attend a meeting.

It was agreed that Mr. Rizzuto will pen a letter requesting representatives from the Pipeline to attend as well as an invitation to the NJDEP. All board members were in favor.
