January 3, 2012: Safety Committee

The Safety Committee (the "Committee") met on, Tuesday, January 3, 2012, in the conference room at Lyndhurst Municipal Center. Present at the meeting were Safety Committee Members Gambatese and Ward and Chairman LoPresti. Also present were Councilmen Schlessel, Frey and Marko, Chief Porrello, Law Director Murphy, Finance Director Kovalchik and Mayor Cicero. The Meeting was called to order at 7:30pm. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the Communications Center Emergency Replacement and Remodeling Project (the "Project").
Chief Porrello informed the Committee that the total estimated cost of the Project remains approximately $198,813.00. Of that total amount, $63,212.72 was already advanced by Council in October 2011 and applied towards start-up costs. The estimated cost to complete the Project is approximately $135,600.00, which the Police Department was budgeting for in 2012.
Because the Project is underway and progressing, additional funds must be allocated as soon as possible so that pre-ordering can take place. This is necessary because of the lengthy (4-5 week) wait between the ordering of equipment/materials and their delivery. Accordingly, the Police Department is asking the Committee to recommend to Council to advance an additional $100,000.00 immediately, rather than waiting until the 2012 Budget is approved and the funds earmarked for the Project become available.
A Motion was made by Mr. Ward and seconded by Chairman LoPresti that the Committee recommends to Council to move $100,000.00 from the 2011 Temporary Budget line item "Building Emergency Repairs", which will be charged against the Project, to fund immediate purchase requisition needs regarding the Project. It is important to note that this movement of funds will cause the total amount requested by the Police Department as a capital request in 2012, regarding the Project, to be reduced by $100,000.00.
No other business was discussed and the meeting adjourned at 7:55pm.
Charles A. LoPresti
Safety Committee Chairman
