Proclamation
Mayor Kirson noted that proclamations are not given often, because they are something very special. Dr. Caruso
and his staff gave free dental services to resident of the Borough and this tells us that the professionals in
Hightstown are willing to go beyond what is expected. The Mayor invited Dr. Caruso, and his staff, to come
forward. Dr. Caruso and his staff came forward and each introduced themselves by name and title.
Mayor Kirson then read the proclamation.
BOROUGH OF HIGHTSTOWN
P ro cl a m a t i o n
Honoring Dr. Joseph Caruso, DDS
October 20, 2014

Whereas, Dr. Caruso has a dental office located at 208 South Main Street in Hightstown; and
Whereas, he supported the health and welfare of the community by setting aside a day to provide dental services to
40 residents of the Hightstown Community who do not have dental insurance; and
Whereas, Dr. Caruso opened his doors to the community and provided dental services free of charge on August 6,
2014; and
Whereas, the services provided included x-rays, cleaning, cavity filling and extractions and Dr. Caruso worked out
a plan for those who required further dental work; and
Whereas, Dr. Caruso and his staff provided these services with professionalism and patience, and are truly
exceptional and outstanding members of the Hightstown Community.
Now Therefore Be It Proclaimed by the Mayor and Borough Council of Hightstown express their appreciation to
Dr. Joseph Caruso, DDS for his generous and outstanding service given in support of the health and welfare of the
Hightstown Community.
Dr. Caruso commented that he has been in Hightstown for 31 years and could not have provided these services with
his team. Council thanked Dr. Caruso for his dedication to the residents of Hightstown.

Mayor Kirson opened the public comment period I and the following individuals spoke:
Walter Sikorski, 326 n. Main Street – referred to a column published in the Trenton Times regarding the 2% cap
law, tax increases, and the lack of property tax rebates.
Christopher Gray, Esq. of the firm Sciarra & Catrambone– noted that he represents Officer Janine Krupa and they
brought everyone here to support her. He wants to bring certain particulars about the charges being brought against
Officer Krupa, to Council’s attention.
Mayor Kirson advised Mr. Gray that the Mayor and Council have not seen the charges that are being brought against
Officer Krupa.
October 20, 2014

Mr. Gray continued that one of the significant issues with the charges is that Officer Krupa complained about
harassment and a hostile work environment; then was served charges when she reported the actions of another
officer, but the action being taken is to discipline her. He does not think that the charges against Officer Krupa are
valid, but they are retaliation for Officer Krupa’s complaint and the report of the misconduct of another officer. He
then asked Council to take a hard look at the procedures taken by the Police Department and its administration; they
need to be held accountable.
Meredith Berkley, Wyckoff Mills– stated that she was told she would be wasting her time coming this evening to
support Janine Krupa; it is never a waste of time to come and support someone you believe in. Janine has done so
much for the residents of Wyckoff Mills, along with everyone here, and we will continue to support her throughout
this entire thing.
JP Gibbons, 602 N. Main Street – noted that he is here for three reasons, the first being in support of Janine Krupa.
He noted his background in law enforcement and is puzzled that this item is on the agenda of the Borough Council,
when to his knowledge there has not been a departmental hearing on the charges and he objects. There will be new
signs popping up this week that state, “They want our vote, we want their plan”; they are not political statements,
they are freedom of speech statements. While he appreciates Mr. Sikorski talking about taxes, his time would be
better spent talking about how to reduce Hightstown Borough taxes.
Frederick Raffetto, Borough Attorney clarified that when Council addressed the personnel matter that is on tonight’s
agenda, there was no discussion regarding the substance of the charges against either of the police officers; the only
matter that was addressed by Council was that charges have been filed. Council is not even aware of what the
charges are. According to the ordinance, the Council is provided with three options: the Council itself could
conduct a hearing; or the disciplinary matter could be heard by a hearing committee consisting of the Mayor, Police
Commissioner, and the Borough Administrator; or the disciplinary matter could be heard by an outside independent
hearing officer. Council consensus is to refer the matter to an outside independent hearing officer, which is how
Council historically handles these matters. There was no discussion regarding the substance of the charges against
either officer, it was merely recognition that charges have been filed and the matter will proceed under the normal
course of a hearing that will take place under the option of the Council, which is to have it heard by the outside
independent hearing officer who will make a findings of facts and inclusions of law based on the hearing; all parties
will be afforded due process. The hearing officer, who happens to be a retired New Jersey Superior Court Judge,
will render a report to the Mayor and Council, who serves as the appropriate authority, to make a determination as to
whether the charges should be sustained; and if so what the penalty shall be.
Doug Mair, 536 S. Main Street – commented that he supports the police department and this officer 100% and
Council now has the opportunity to get in front of this and stop it; what is going on in the police department needs to
be addressed. He then noted that he is concerned with the insurance funds for Borough Hall and wonders if the $2M
has already been accepted.
Lynne Woods, 315 Park Avenue – commented that 13 months ago Council hired Labor Counsel for a previous
police matter, and the matter has still not been addressed.
Denise Garcia, 6 Deerfield Park - noted that there are only two officers she trusts and they are Officers Krupa and
Marchione; neither deserves this.
Skye Gilmartin, 180 E. Mill Run Court – described the assistance Officer Krupa offered the residents of Wyckoff
Mills during their fire and commented that she is a hero.
Dave Kowardy, 47 Powell Court – joined Ms. Gilmartin at the podium and commented that Janine is a hero.
October 20, 2014

Herbert Smith, 150 S. Main Street – noted that Janine and Frank are two of the best police officers in Hightstown
and he will support them; their records should not be blemished.
Mark Kramer, 221 Wilson Avenue – noted that he is a firefighter and has seen Janine and Frank assist the
community and he is in full support of them.
Robyn Floom, 15 Dennis Court – works with the school district and commented that Janine and Frank are great cops
and the nicest people; this should not be going on.
Pat Papero, PBA 187, Hamilton, NJ – confirmed that the matter is being referred to an independent hearing officer
and that Council has not heard the facts of the case. The Borough Attorney confirmed the process. Mr. Papero then
noted that an officer has been suspended with pay for 16 months and a hearing officer also costs money; how much
in taxpayer dollars do we have to spend before we start spending them right? How much more will be spent on
these trumped up charges?
Wayne Hummel, East Windsor PBA President – noted that there is consideration of merging the PBAs from
Hightstown and East Windsor. There are some issues that have not been handled by the town, one being Frank
Marchione being out of work with pay for 16 months; the other being Janine Krupa and the fact that, as PBA
President, she rubbed some people the wrong way in the department. As far as her and Frank becoming members
under the umbrella of the PBA, as long as these issues are resolved, I have no problem with it.
Phyllis Mack, 1 Mill Run West – noted that she met Janine through a double tragedy, and Janine kept checking on
her; she is a very loyal and compassionate person.
Linda Petranko, 122 Mill Run East – stated that she is here in support of Janine Krupa; she is the mother of a female
police officer. Officer Krupa, and women like her need to be applauded for their dedication and service, and we
need more women like her who will stand up and wear their uniform with respect.
There being no further comments, Mayor Kirson closed the public comment period.

Councilmember Quattrone – noted that it had rained very hard the day of the fair and the volunteers got soaked,
but none of them complained; he is very proud to have been a part of this event.
Mayor Kirson – commented that tax appeals have not been won in over four years; and the Assessor, Construction
Official and Collector are independent of the elected officials, and elected officials have limited authority in these
matters.
He then noted that due to the fact that the Borough had no flood insurance, there is limited coverage on the old
Borough Hall. The maximum we would get from FEMA is approximately $300,000, with a cost of $75,000 for the
detailed work necessary to see if we even qualify. Last year we did an emergency appropriation in the amount of
$100,000 for professionals to evaluate the Borough Hall situation.
Councilmember Quattrone noted that the Council had the experts evaluate the situation to confirm the figures; they
did not decide this without professional recommendations.
Mayor Kirson continued that in the 2014 budget we had extraordinary expenses including the $100,000 emergency
appropriation for the professionals to evaluate Borough Hall; with an emergency appropriation you must include it
in the following year’s budget. We also had $135,000 in litigation settlements. If you compare the 2014 budget to
the 2010 budget, when we were in Borough Hall and did not have to pay rent for the police and court, and you
remove these expenses, the 2014 budget is less than in 2010. So if you think this Council, in the last four years, has
been throwing money out the window, you are incorrect. Municipal taxes in the Borough have been stabilized and
we have to realistically look at who we are and what we have; the school budget is $64M and they can raise their
budget 2% each year without a referendum, and there is almost a guarantee that they will and we have no control
over that. He hears a lot of misinformation floating around. We are taxpayers too and the schools and county have
much more impact on what you pay in taxes than the municipality has.
Councilmember Misiura – commented that although he is not the Liaison to the Environmental Commission, and
he does not recall if it was announced at the last meeting, that Hightstown has been designated as a Sustainable
Jersey Certified Municipality.
Councilmember Quattrone motioned to adjourn back into executive session at 9:10 pm, Council President Bluth
seconded. All ayes.
Councilmember Thibault motioned to adjourn at 9:30 pm, Councilmember Quattrone seconded. All ayes.

RE:
Water Sewer Rate Increase
An ordinance to increase the water sewer fee rates has been placed on the agenda for your consideration. I
have again amended the spread sheet to make it as up to date as possible. Current year revenue is lagging
and it was necessary to limit even further the amount of surplus used to balance the 2015 budget.
The rate increase is necessary because expenditures have increased while available fund balance has
declined. It has been 8 years since the rates were increased. The Finance Officer and I have reviewed the
history of expenditures and have made some conservative projections. The estimated budgets for 2015,
2016, and 2017 have been increased 1.7%, 12.1% and 3.6% respectively. The largest increase is due to
anticipated capital/debt service expenses. The first section of the spread sheet shows the historic data for
revenue and expenses and the projections.
The second section of the spreadsheet lists old fees and projected new fees. The green highlighted area
lists the percent of total revenue and the orange highlight indicates the percent of increase. Revenues have
been increased to match the projected expenses from section one. While the budget has increased by only
$52,800 the revenue is predicted to increase to $283,703. The difference is due to the decrease in the
amount of fund balance. This section also indicates increases in the fees charged to dispose of septic.
Septic disposal revenue had increased over the past few years. Those numbers were reduced during 2014
due to plant problems. We are reviewing the processing costs and trying to determine if there should be a
limit on the amount of septic to handle over the course of a year. Our goal is to determine if there is an
optimum amount that maximizes revenue and does not present a detriment to the plant process.
The third section shows the old fees compared to the new fees based on an average user. Overall the cost
is up 12% which represents an annual increase for the average user of $112.72. That is a quarterly increase
of about $28. We have looked at all the aspects of the rate so that the increase could be kept as low as
possible. I contacted the East Windsor MUA to determine if there could be any discussions about sending
our flow to them. That request was rejected. At the same time I reviewed the costs involved in septic
disposal. There is still a positive margin between costs and revenues.
Finally I have included a provision in the ordinance to increase the fees by 1% for 2017. That may be
sufficient to get through the 2018 budget. In 2018 the Borough will make the final payment on a bond. That
will reduce debt service in 2019 by over $300,000.

RE:
Septic Cost Review
Attached is a spreadsheet showing the cost analysis of septic processing. This was first done in 2009. I
took the same percentages to update the 2014 numbers. Most costs have increased. I also added some
items that I believe affect costs due to septic handling.
The percentages used to determine costs were provided by the Borough Engineer. These numbers are
used because we are not able to completely separate certain costs. For example there is only one electric
meter, so it is impossible to get actual use numbers for septic.
The top part of the form examines the cost of operating the sludge press. You will see that the disposal
option being used is landfill. That was not the cheapest disposal used during the original analysis. However
that has been what has been used due to the bid process. An estimate of what it would cost if not using the
press is shown under the column called liquid costs.
