Gains, losses, and other credits and charges shall be separately allocated on a reasonable and consistent basis to each Participant's Roth contribution Account and the Participant's other Accounts under the Plan. A designated Roth contribution under the Plan must satisfy the requirements applicable to section 403(b) elective deferrals under the Plan and the requirements of §1.403(b)–6(d). Similarly, a designated Roth account under the Plan is subject to the rules of Code sections 401(a)(9)(A) and (B) and §1.403(b)–6(e).

Mr. Yuhasz moved for the adoption of the Buildings & Grounds recommendations, seconded by Mr. Small. During Board discussion, Ms. Acquisto asked if the prices in Item #1 are increased over last year’s prices. Mr. DeMarino stated he did not have the previous year’s prices with him but will get back to her. Mr. Molnar stated when the item was discussed in Committee, it was a very minimal increase. Ms. Acquisto asked about a shared service agreement with the township for snow removal. Mr. DeMarino explained that snow plowing is a difficult situation since the district needs to have the schools opened and the township needs to have the streets cleared. With all Board members voting in favor with the exception of Mr. Huber who abstained on Item #1a, the foregoing was adopted. The Transportation Committee, on the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools and the Business Administrator/Board Secretary, presented the following: 1.

Mr. Huber moved for the adoption of the Transportation recommendations, seconded by Mr. Small. During Board discussion, Ms. Leidner asked what the cost savings is on Item #3. Mr. DeMarino stated it is approximately $2,800.00. He advised that the overtime costs in transportation are nearing $700,000.00. Ms. Leidner asked if there is a plan in place to address the overtime costs. Mr. DeMarino stated the overtime issue was addressed in Committee. He stated the district needs to compare costs of routes and possibly contract additional drivers. Mr. DeMarino further stated when they bid a run out, it is not to eliminate personnel, but rather to compare costs to make sure other areas do not have to be cut. Ms. Leidner expressed concern over the company listed in Item #3, possibly low-balling the cost of the trips. Mr. DeMarino acknowledged this is a new company and that is a possibility. Ms. Leidner asked if this company is able to handle the volume. Mr. DeMarino stated that will have to be seen. He advised he will monitor the runs. Ms. Leidner expressed additional concerns regarding the size of the company and whether or not they will be able to handle the runs. Mr. DeMarino again stated he will have to monitor the routes. Ms. Leidner also stated she is concerned with using a company who has not yet established themselves. Mr. DeMarino stated when the bid routes go out, they will have to compete with the larger companies. Ms. Leidner stated as a member of the Finance Committee, she would like numbers for utilizing in-house drivers compared to outside contractors. Mr. DeMarino stated the only way to compare the numbers is to put the routes out to bid. Mr. DeMarino again stressed it is not the objective of the Administration to take runs away from our in-house drivers. Ms. Leidner stated she feels further discussion is warranted, noting she doesn’t feel there was enough discussion in Committee regarding this issue. Dr. Crowe stated he feels it is a conversation which should take place, however, there are new regulations regarding overtime which the district must adhere to. Dr. Crowe stated the amount of overtime paid will need to be looked into at the next committee meeting. During public discussion, A. Dohoney, Avenel, asked if any background check has been done on the Negba Bus Company. Mr. DeMarino stated he has. Ms. Dohoney followed up with a specific issue in Cranford. Mr. DeMarino stated he is aware of that situation. With all Board members voting in favor with the exception of Ms. Leidner, Mr. Small and Mr. Molnar who voted not on Item #3, the foregoing was adopted. Board Attorney, Viola Lordi, had nothing to bring before the Board for open session.


95 November 19, 2009 Under "Old Business," Mr. Yuhasz stated partial roof replacement has been completed at 2&16. He further advised that a new rubberized mat has been installed in the weight room at Woodbridge High School and the new equipment has been ordered and is expected to be delivered soon. Mr. Small announced that the dedication of Coach Barbato Way will take place on Saturday, November 21st at 11:00 a.m. at Colonia High School. Ms. Rotella thanked Mr. Yuhasz for the flags and the flagpoles noting it was a wonderful opportunity for the students to be involved in. Ms. Rotella also thanked Ms. Hahn and Mr. Soccodato for their involvement in the essay and art contests. Mr. Yuhasz thanked Ms. Rotella, her staff and the entire Board for their collaborate effort on this project. Ms. Rotella advised that all essays and art work are on display at Town Hall. Under “New Business," Mr. Tamburello announced that Colonia High School will be hosting a financial aid forum on November 23rd which is sponsored by Congressman Leonard Lance. Mr. Tamburello further advised that the next session of the Princeton Review begins on January 30, 2010. Mr. Tamburello thanked Maria Pereira for coordinating the program. Mr. Tamburello recommended that all parents take advantage of the program which will take place at Kennedy High School. Mr. Molnar thanked the Administration for putting the information on this program on the district web-site. Ms. Rotella stated Mr. Tamburello worked very hard with Congressman Lance’s office to schedule the financial aid forum. Mr. Miloscia asked for clarification on the dates of the Princeton Review. Mr. Tamburello stated the program begins January 30 and ends March 10, 2010. Mr. Tamburello acknowledged the support he received from Mr. Molnar and Mr. Small to promote the program. Mr. Small advised that a spaghetti dinner benefit will be held to aid the family of a student from Avenel Middle School who lost their house and belongings in a fire. Ms. Leidner wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving. The Board President opened the meeting to the public. During this portion, P. Ballotta, Woodbridge reminded everyone to attend the holiday concerts at the schools. Mr. Ballotta congratulated the Board’s investment in technology. He asked if any additional reimbursement has been received from the State. Mr. DeMarino advised that on October 19th the district received $852,880.08 and on October 23rd the district received $406,268.30. Mr. DeMarino stated the last short term note was paid in full with the funds received. He advised the remaining reimbursement, $1,032,615.00, when received, will be applied to the $55,000,000 that the district initially borrowed. Mr. Ballotta again congratulated the Board for coming in under budget and completing the projects on time. Mr. Ballotta asked for a time line regarding the pay back on the initial investment on the roofing and solar panel project. Dr. Crowe stated the project is at the initial phase only, but does expect to have that information broken down for them by the architect. D. Davidson, Fords, announced the Woodbridge Elks will be sponsoring an all you can eat pancake breakfast on November 22nd which will benefit the PACE organization. Mr. Small then presented to the Board for its consideration, a resolution for a Closed Session to discuss subjects exempted from the public portion of the meeting. The discussion to be held in Closed Session will be about personnel matters which include: resignations; extension of sympathy; retirements; leaves of absences; adjustments in salaries; transfers; appointments of certified and non-certified staff, coach, and substitutes, which include substitute teachers, custodians, paraprofessionals, and school aides; appointments/changes of advisors for clubs, extra-curricular activities, after-school activities, professional development, IALAC Program, homework club instructors; approval of employee salaries for ASI, Title I, ESL/Bilingual, Title III projects paid from federal, local and state funds; home instructors; and employee discipline.

He asked that when voting on these three recommendations, the Board be specific and identify if they are voting affirmatively on all three items.
