AUTOMATIC LICENSE PLATE READER EQUIPMENT GRANT
Chief Gardner stated Montgomery County Department of Public Safety selected the Hatboro Police Department to receive an Automatic License Plate Reader. He stated these tag readers are mounted to the exterior of the police car and are used to detect suspended, expired, etc. He noted these often lead to other violations and that this equipment often helps with locating stolen vehicles, wanted persons, people with PFAs, assists with amber/silver alerts, as well as help search the department locate vehicles that may be present in a crime scene. Chief Gardner stated that most departments have this equipment already and Montgomery County Public Safety selected HPD to receive a grant. Chief Gardner stated the equipment usually costs $24,000, but through this grant, the acquisition and installation is covered by the Federal Government. Chief Gardner stated future software upgrades and maintenance will have to be paid by the Borough in the future in the amount of $1,800 after the year 2020.

Vice President Stockton asked if the license plate reader will generate more revenue to offset the licensing fees. Chief Gardner stated that there will probably be additional revenue coming in from fines as this automatic plate reader makes finding violations easier; however, he does not expect the fines to cover the licensing fees completely. Chief Gardner stated the true benefit of this equipment is the protection of the community as it is a valuable recovery/arrest/crime fighting tool.
Councilman Hegele asked if the car needs to be stationary for the equipment to read plates. Chief Gardner stated no, the equipment works whether the car is stationary or moving and will set off an alarm when it gets a hit.

PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE
2019 ROAD PAVING PROJECT – AUTHORIZATION FOR BIDDING
Councilman Hegele sated the Borough received $206,000 in Liquid Fuels funding for 2019. He stated that each year, this funding is used for Micro-Resurfacing and road paving. He stated Madison Avenue is on the top of the paving list; however, this street would require curbing work.
Superintendent Sine stated there is substantial concrete curbing work that would need to be performed when milling/paving Madison Avenue. Superintendent Sine stated this curbing work is estimated to cost $40,000 on top of the cost to perform the milling/overlay work. Superintendent Sine stated this might make paving Madison Avenue cost prohibitive at this time.
President Bollendorf asked if this is private concrete work or Borough concrete work that would be required. Superintendent Sine stated this curbing is on residential property; however, the Borough has funded the concrete curbing replacement on roads in these types of situations. President Bollendorf asked Manager Hegele to look into whether the Borough paid for curbing in the past.
Councilman Hegele asked if Madison would be the only street paved this year. Engineer Goff stated in the past, the Borough repaired the concrete curb when milling and overlaying a road because it is more effective. Engineer Goff stated the Borough does have an ordinance that requires the abutting property owner to repair the curb in instances like this, Section 21-106. Engineer Goff stated that curbing is not an eligible cost under the liquid fuels funding unless it is immediately adjacent to an ADA ramp. Solicitor Kilkenny stated that if the Borough uses general funds for curbing, the Borough would have to receive a release from the property owner in order to perform the work. Solicitor Kilkenny also stated repairing the private curbing with Borough funds will also raise the question of who is responsible for the future maintenance. Solicitor Kilkenny stated the other municipalities he represents will notify property owners far in advance should they need to repair their curbing, allow them a reasonable amount of time to make the repairs, and if the repairs are not made the Borough can perform the repairs and lien the property. President Bollendorf stated he wants staff to research the matter because he and Council do not want to lien anyone’s property.
Engineer Goff stated this matter can be pushed back another month. She noted that she would not delay the bidding any further than 1 more month.
PECO STREET LIGHT BUYOUT
Superintendent Sine stated in the 1980s, the Borough bought streetlights, mast arms, and equipment from PECO which resulted in the Borough having maintenance responsibility and a lower electric rate. Superintendent Sine stated that 5 streetlights not purchased for unknown reasons. Superintendent Sine stated there were 4 streetlights at the Police Station that were unnecessary and removed per Chief Gardner. Superintendent Sine stated the last light is located at Summit & Springdale Avenues. He stated this light is needed at the intersection due to a nearby park and the AQUA tower. Superintendent Sine stated PECO has placed a value of $91.67 on the fixture and mast arm. He stated he would like to purchase the light from PECO which will result in a discounted electric rate.
This item was moved to the voting meeting at the end of the agenda.
ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
HOUSE BILL 1400
Councilwoman Anzinger stated House Bill 1400 is currently under review at the State House of Representatives. She stated that if passed, this bill will override the local zoning code and will allow wireless facilities and towers to be installed wherever within the Borough. She noted the Borough is very landlocked as is and encouraged everyone to reach out to Tom Murt asking him to reject this bill.
UPPER MORELAND HATBORO TRAIL COMMITTEE MEETING
Councilwoman Anzinger stated the first public meeting for the Upper Moreland Hatboro Trail Committee Meeting took place in May. She noted there were not many Hatboro Residents present. She stated the next meeting will most likely be in September at Borough Hall. She noted information on a date and time will be announced once finalized.
DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
Councilwoman Anzinger read a list of new businesses including Sterling Kitchen & Bath, Hatboro Art Lounge, and the Lavender Spa. She also noted that existing business Salon On Main expanded their business and Bogg’s printing is celebrating their 40th Anniversary.
BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: HHH RECORDS – Councilwoman Anzinger announced that HHH Records is the June Business Spotlight. She encouraged residents to visit their store at 21 N. York and see their collection.
ADVERTISEMENT OF COMMUTER PARKING ORDINANCE AMENDMENT
Councilman Rich Stockton stated the solicitor has prepared the amendment to the Commuter Parking Ordinance. He noted that E. Moreland Avenue from N. Warminster Rd. to S. New St. and S. New St. is the proposed addition to the affected areas of the ordinance.
This item was moved to the voting meeting at the end of the agenda.
2019 COMPUTER EQUIPMENT UPGRADES
Vice President Stockton stated Council is in receipt of a proposal for a computer refresh from Integra1. Vice President Stockton stated the initial proposal came in at $83,411.43, so he would like to see some of those costs reduced. Vice President Stockton asked what the $2,750.00 setup fee includes because that cost is high for taking computers out of the box. Mr. Bird stated there are three elements to this project: equipment upgrade, server upgrade, and firewall upgrade to both Admin and the Police Department. He noted a 4G Sim Card backup for the police department is also included. Chief Gardner noted this backup is necessary since the Police Department’s records management system is cloud based and without internet cannot be used.
Vice President Stockton stated server and firewall fees make sense to him, but the hardware costs and setup fees are concerning. Mr. Bird stated the personal systems for the offices and vehicles are being refreshed. He noted that all of these devices would have to be configured, have data transferred, etc.
Vice President Stockton stated he is concerned about the admin staff rather than the Police Department and does not want the Borough to pay so much money for taking computers out of the box. Mr. Bird stated that the devices will be unboxed, imaged, loaded with antivirus and the managed service agent. He added the old machines will also be wiped according to Department of Defense guidelines and recycling. He noted these costs are included in the $2,750.00 setup cost.
Vice President Stockton stated he has some more questions as to Admin’s need for certain devices and stated he would like to table the matter until he meets with Integra and staff himself.
VICTORIAN VILLAGE II ZONING RELIEF REQUEST
Christopher Mahoney, the attorney for Victorian Village stated Victorian Village has made an agreement for the purchase of the YMCA property located at 440 S. York Rd. and the other 3 parcels owned by the YMCA. He stated that Victorian Village would only expand onto the property where the current YMCA building resides. He also noted that the Cressbrook house may also be donated to the Borough. Mr. Mahoney noted that the problem with expanding to the YMCA property is that the parcels are currently zoned R-1. He noted they originally went to the Planning Commission with the idea to get active adult added as an acceptable use in the R-1 District; however, this did not make sense. As a result, he stated they would like to change the zoning of the main YMCA parcel at 440 S. York Rd. to an Office District to permit the active adult community. He stated Victorian Village 2 would be only 3 acres and the zoning require 8 acres, so by combining Victorian Village I and II would make a 12 acre parcel.
Mr. Mahoney stated Victorian Village II would be a 52 unit, 4-story building and the historic house currently at the YMCA property would be preserved and incorporated into the offices for Victorian Village. He noted there was also some discussion about getting the house on the National Historic Registry.
Tim Schultz, Historian, stated he is pleased the house will be maintained, but asked what will be done with the inside of the house. Lance Kramer stated the inside of the historic house will be office space with a vestibule into the new building. He noted that the new building will be a backdrop behind the house. Tim Schultz stated they will basically be preserving the integrity of the building. Mr. Kramer stated yes.
Lynn MaGaha asked if they will be restoring the interior so it would meet National Historic Registry guidelines. Mr. Kramer stated the interior would be renovated, but not restored because restoration would be too costly seeing that the current interior is not in great shape. He noted that is why they’re focusing on maintaining the existing exterior of the building. Mr. Magaha stated the interior would need to be registered to make it to the Historic Register.
Dave Shannon, Millbrook Society, stated the historic home is a national landmark qualified building if everything other than the original footprint is removed. Mr. Shannon asked if they are aware of the history of the building. Mr. Kramer stated his offices did extensive research and his staff has an expert on historic grants/restoration. Mr. Kramer noted everything other than the original building would have to be removed; however, the Borough stated they wanted the building to remain the same because that is how it’s recognized. Mr. Shannon asked if that was the Borough’s official position. President Bollendorf stated the Borough’s position is to refer to the historian/historical commission.
Mr. Magaha stated the building cannot be on the national register if the interior is going to be renovated because its integrity as a historical site will be lost. He noted the building has immense importance to the Borough and should be preserved.
Mayor Guenst stated that the YMCA dramatically changed the building and thus it can’t even meet historical guidelines now. President Bollendorf stated the Borough wants to see the historic building preserved and it’s not fair to ask Victorian Village to restore the interior of the building when it wasn’t required with the YMCA.
Tim Schultz stated there are multiple levels of historic registration and can work with Victorian Village to get the building on a registry. Mayor Guenst noted Loller Academy is on the historic registry and the building has drastically changed over the years. President Bollendorf asked if the YMCA building can be registered without the interior being restored. Mr. Kramer noted that the building can be historically certified which means the exterior of the building will be historic; however, the interior does not have to be restored. Tim Schultz stated it is a very important building and he will work with Victorian Village to help get the building registered.
Mr. Magaha asked if the building will be attached. Mr. Kramer stated the historic building will be attached to the new complex and will serve as a vestibule into the units in addition to serving as office space. Mr. Magaha stated he will defer to Tim Schultz and will look to Tim to do what is right and coordinate with Victorian Village.
President Bollendorf asked if the intent is to donate the Cressbrook house to the Borough. Nancy stated that is extremely generous.
Vice President Stockton stated another developer could purchase the property and tear the entire building down; however, Victorian Village cares about Hatboro’s history and is trying to preserve it where possible.
Councilman Hegele stated it would be great for the building to stay intact and that was the first priority thought of when the rumor first arose of the Victorian Village II development.
Ron Battis, W. Moreland Ave. asked when Council previous discussed the Victorian Village development and the donation of the Cressbrook House because it did not take place in a public meeting and asked if it was an appropriate discussion. Solicitor Kilkenny stated there were preliminary meetings with staff with less than a quorum of Council present to meet with the developer to get initial input. He emphasized this is not a violation of the sunshine law and that it happens in Hatboro and every other municipality.
Manager Hegele noted Victorian Village II will have to go back to the Planning Commission and Montgomery County Planning Commission for further review. Mayor Guenst noted MCPC seemed to favor the project, but stated they needed to go about the correct zoning.
RESOLUTION 19-16: TREASURER APPOINTMENT

Councilman Rich stated the Sutton family of Hatboro is the longest member of the Hatboro Pool. He stated their family has attended the pool, helped run the pool and more over the years.

This item was tabled until the July 15, 2019 Council Meeting.
RESOLUTION 19-13: RESOLUTION SUPPORTING RESTORE PA
Vice President Stockton stated Restore PA is designed to help spread broadband internet access and infrastructure updates to municipalities across the state.

RESOLUTION 19-14: RESOLUTION APPROVING/ADOPTING COMCAST CABLE FRANCHISE AGREEMENT
