CORRESPONDENCE

 

Tax Collector’s Report for the Month of February 2007.

 

Mayor Post stated that on March 15, 2007, there was a letter from the Lebanon Township Squad, to the editor of the Hunterdon County Democrat regarding squad matters.  Mayor Post thanked the volunteers who serve the Township. He said that it is impressive that the response rates have improved.  The Committee stated their gratitude to the volunteer Fire and EMS members who give many hours to the Township residents. 

 

 

PUBLIC COMMENTS

 

Motion by Ms. Schriver, seconded by Mr. Monahan and carried by unanimous favorable roll call vote, the Township Committee opened the Public Comment portion of the meeting.

 

Mr. David Nell, President of the Lebanon Township First Aid Squad, stated that he was in attendance to defend the Squad from accusations and charges based on hearsay, not on facts. Mr. Nell stated that the Squad and the Committee had scheduled a meeting.  On the day of the meeting, the Squad was informed that the meeting would not take place.  Mr. Nell stated that on that same evening, during the regular Township Committee meeting, the Committee made a decision, in secret, which will materially affect the Squad and the residents of the Township.   Mr. Nell stated that he viewed meeting minutes on the Township website, Monday March 19, 2007, which he stated had been there for months, and when he looked again today, March 21, 2007, the minutes had been altered.  Mr. Nell stated that “the minutes of those meetings had been altered to accommodate the fact that certain decisions were made in private.”   Mr. Nell stated that the charges and accusations stated in his letter to the editor, go to the behavior of the Committee and the lack of ethics involved.  Mr. Nell stated that the residents should know that the Committee does not work in accordance with the law. 

 

Mr. Piazza stated that if in fact his accusations are founded, he will be very upset.  It will be looked into and if it did take place, then action will be taken.  Mr. Piazza and Mr. Weeks stated that they are not aware of changes being made.  Mr. Nell stated that this is a very serious concern and needs to be investigated by the proper authorities.  Mr. Nell stated that someone on the Committee had to have authorized the changes. Mr. Monahan suggested that Mr. Nell just accuse him personally for altering the minutes.  Mr. Nell stated that he was going to but would not be permitted to do so.  Mr. Nell did not provide the Committee with any detailed information or proof of his statements.

 

Mr. Nell provided the Committee with costs and statistics associated with the Squad.  Training is received to insure top quality care for the Township residents. 

 

 

 

Relative to mutual aid, Mr. Nell stated “that at no time during 2006 did our mutual aid companies come to our aid at any time” with exception of one time when a High Bridge member rode with them in the Township rig. The rest of the calls were handled by Squad 27.  Mr. Nell stated that this is a small percentage of Township calls.  This year, mutual aid was only needed two times with one of those times being part of a multi-fire, multi-squad response.  This the “heart of the dilemma” in which the mutual aid companies must face, the Township Squad’s strength, is their problem.

 

Mr. Nell provided information on standbys and transports that were provided by the Township Squad and denied by other squads. 

 

Mayor Post stated that the Committee does not challenge any statistics provided and asked Mr. Nell what the Squad’s real concerns are.  Mr. Nell stated that the Committee makes undisclosed decisions that materially affect the Township such as requesting Requests for Proposal for a paid squad in the Township.  Mr. Nell stated that he is concerned that the Township “colludes” with other squads and has secret meetings behind their backs.  Mayor Post stated that he is not sure of where Mr. Nell is getting his facts, but for the record, what Mr. Nell is stating has not happened.  Mayor Post made clear that the Committee has not taken any action in hiring a day squad.  Mayor Post also stated that “this Township has an obligation to look for alternatives in the event that your membership were to diminish very quickly because of a lack of confidence in, say the leadership or that service levels were to diminish to the point where it was no longer safe for the community.”  

 

Mayor Post stated that the Committee can receive proposals and never act on them. The Committee needs to make sure that the municipality is covered.  Mr. Nell stated that this Township is covered regardless, because it has mutual aid.

 

Mr. Piazza stated that the Committee and the Squad leadership seem to disagree quite often and suggested scheduling a meeting. 

 

Mayor Post stated that the Committee supports the volunteers but does not always appreciate the tactics the leadership uses.  It tends to be aggressive, provocative and abrasive and does not help in trying to solve problems. 

 

Relative to funding, Mayor Post stated that the Committee has a fiduciary responsibility to make sure that the Squad’s books and records are audited.  The Committee has received documents that would be used for an audit, but has not seen audited financials for 2005. The Township must have the details inventoried, at a cost to the Township, to obtain that audit. Mr. Nell stated that the 2005 documents are at their auditor. 

 

Mr. Nell stated that he feels that the Squad has earned the right to service the Township residents and requested a resolution of the Township Committee stating that LTFAS and it’s designates as the sole provider of EMS for the Township of Lebanon. Should the squad determine and/or statistics determine that they are no long able to provide the services, that they will explore all avenues and decide what it best for the Township residents.  Mayor Post stated that the Committee will take the request under consideration. 

 

 

 

Mr. Nell stated that he would like to schedule a meeting to work through these problems.  Mayor Post stated that it is difficult to work with the Squad when they come to meetings and disparage a Committee member and Squad liaison, Mr. Monahan. Mr. Monahan stated that he attended the Squad Open House and was ignored by the members.

 

Mayor Post stated that the Squad and Committee must work together due to responsibilities to the Township, however, the Committee is looking for respect and reciprocity.  Accusations which are unfounded do not help.  Mr. Nell said that they may seem unfounded but they do have independent witnesses who saw the same in the altered minutes. Mayor Post asked for Mr. Nell

to put the information together and it will be looked into and if he feels it necessary, to contact the prosecutor.  There are no impropriates that the Committee is aware of. 

 

Mayor Post asked Mr. Nell to put together an agenda of items that he would like discussed at the meeting.

 

Mr. Gordon Sandalier asked when Mr. Monahan was appointed as liaison to the Squad and since there are problems, why was someone else not appointed instead.  Mr. Monahan stated that the problems started after he was appointed as liaison.  Mayor Post stated that Mr. Monahan is qualified to sit as the liaison.  Ms. Schriver stated that Mr. Monahan is the only Committeeman who served on the Squad for many years. 

 

Ms. Joni Note, Vice President of LTFAS stated her concerns with a paid squad.  She stated that the patient is billed and sometimes they constantly pester the patient and do not necessarily accept only what they are legally bound to accept, medicade, or any additional payment the patient can offer. Ms. Note said that patient care should be everyone’s primary concern. She offered to meet with Mr. Monahan to discuss the issues between the Squad and the Committee. Mr. Monahan stated that the Committee will handle the matter with the proper Squad authorities. 

 

Mr. Monahan stated that he had the opportunity to look at the paid squad’s contract.  It states that they will only bill twice.  The first bill is sent to the insurance company and medicare, then, they bill the patient one time.  Mr. Monahan stated that 27 Unit is a paid squad coming into the municipality without a contract with Lebanon Township, therefore they can bill as they want. 

 

Mr. Ken Ader, Captain of the LTFAS stated that yes the paid squad’s contract does read as Mr. Monahan stated, however, that is not what occurs.  There is a resident present that received no less than 6 bills and in the end a small threat of action to be taken if the bill was not paid.  Attorney Bernstein asked Mr. Ader what the Squad was going to do relative to the obligations they have with the mutual aid and Squad 27, to insure that they abide by the obligations that they have with the squad, which is that they will only bill twice. Attorney Bernstein advised that the Squad notify the mutual partners that when it comes to Township residents, to not violate the provisions of the contract by billing more than once.  Mr. Ader stated that he has spoken to the other squad captains and he continually hears that there is nothing that can be done because the contract has been signed.  Attorney Bernstein disagreed with that position.  

 

Mrs. Joy Franz-Kin stated her endless support for the Rescue Squad.  She said that she is much indebted to the Squad for all of their efforts through the years in taking care of her family members.  Mrs. Franz-Kin asked for the Committee and Squad to work together for peace and for what is best for the residents of this Township. 

 

Mr. Bill Rauschenberger stated that in the future if the Committee is considering other options for EMS services, the Squad should be included from the beginning as they would be the people working with them.

 

Mr. Ralph Lomerson, Historian Chairman, stated that Mr. John Bolt contacted Trenton to see what the status was on the application for the Woodglen Historic District.  Mr. Bolt was advised that due to the majority of the property owners being against the District, the application was denied.  The Historians have laid the project to rest. 

 

Motion by Ms. Schriver, seconded by Mr. Piazza and carried by unanimous favorable roll call vote, the Township Committee closed the Public Comment portion of the meeting.
