-PUBLIC PORTION
Ken Dolsky, Parsippany resident, asked the Freeholder Board to please
pass a resolution to oppose the Pilgrim Pipeline.
Katherine Abbott, Chatham Township resident, also endorses the
resolution to oppose the Pilgrim Pipeline. She feels it endangers the
property values as well as health.
Brendon Keating and Wendy Pierson, Chatham Township residents, thanked
the Board for adding the resolution to oppose the Pilgrim Pipeline to the
agenda this evening.
Wayne Laraway, Washington Township resident, questioned the 2015 budget
where there are 31 additional new positions and increasing the budget by $12
million. Director DeFillippo said there are 29 positions.
Mr. Laraway would
like to see the Board more transparent. He does not understand the solar

issue and the disparagement clause.
disclosure.

He feels this is the same as non-

Chris Yates, Harding Township resident, asked questions about the open
space tax that increased by cent.
Ray Newman, Wharton resident, spoke about the solar settlement and the
possible change of consultants. Administrator Bonanni said the Improvement
Authority Commissioners are discussing a number of alternatives and then we
will move ahead publicly after the Improvement Authority meets.
Barbara Eames, Hanover Township, said she read the document that the
County put out yesterday. She would like to have an accounting of where the
money went concerning solar and how much is left. Concerning the budget she
asked what sustainable means. It is a $12 million increase part state
funding. She would like to see more cuts for next year.
George Moken, Morris Township resident, feels that in order to be more
transparent, the public needs to speak. He hopes the public is allowed to get
up later for another three minutes public comment. The Board confirmed.
Mr. Moken noted that according to web page, the Improvement Authority is
backed by Morris County and there has been a savings of over $15.4 million in
debt services over a 10-year period and that 1/3 is directly attributable to
Morris Countys AAA bond rating. He was wondering what fees Morris County
collected for this. Administrator Bonanni said there were no fees collected.
The numbers are sitting on the website --- all entities that were taxing
entities so there was no risk to the County. Mr. Moken feels there should
have been remuneration for the County to help ameliorate the loss the County
has suffered. He asked to please look into this and collect a fee for this.
Barbara Eames, Hanover Township resident, asked if it is possible to get
a financial accounting of the solar deal. Mr. Bonanni said he is going to sit
down with the Improvement Authority professionals to put something together
for her.
Mr. Moken asked about the $33.1 million in bonds issued he would like
to know after the settlement how much is left of the $33.1 million. Mr.
Bonanni said he would try to get that into the analysis he will prepare for
Ms. Eames.
Mr. Moken feels that all the resolutions should be brought up at one
meeting and then voted on at the next meeting. There is not enough time to
evaluate these resolutions at each meeting. He also asked that the County
come up with a sheet to identify to the public what the unfunded liabilities
are. For the budget, it must be reduced. He feels the taxpayer should have a
breakdown to better understand the budget. He asked about the solar
investigation and why did the Board select the state comptroller to do the
analysis.
Freeholder Mastrangelo responded that we suggested the comptroller to
avoid spending tax dollars. It was also said that we would consider bringing
in a third party to perhaps do an investigation depending on when the
comptroller comes back to us from a timing perspective.
Mr. Moken felt the tax dollars would be well worth it to have a third
party. Important information could be gained on how to proceed with the
projects.
Administrator Bonanni said he spoke to the deputy comptroller who will
review the material and get back to him upon completion of her review and
analysis.
Mr. Laraway, Washington Township resident, said if the administrator is
going to look at this, he is interested in knowing more details of what monies
went where. He has a problem with the non-disparagement clause sees that as
a shell to avoid the public getting the facts on the settlement.
Mr. OMullan said a non-disparagement clause is not a gag order. The
Board is free to discuss the matter in detail as long as in essence they do
not call someone a crook or misquote the facts. The County, as part of the
lawsuit, is subject to the supervision of the Court.
Mr. Moken wants to know what has the County asked the comptroller to
look for. The taxpayers are looking for explanation on Solar I & II to follow
the money, what advice was given, who gave the advice, and who benefited from

24

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 25, 2015


the advice. There has been bad advice. Someone took a risk with the
taxpayers dollars. He wants a thorough investigation and look at everyone
involved. He would like that to be conveyed to the comptroller. He
understands that there are 30 projects and that 17 have been completed. He
asked about the prognosis of the 17 completed, whether those are taking
losses.
Administrator Bonanni believes they will not pay for themselves.
feels the numbers that were stated were accurate.

He

Freeholder Krickus said for Solar I it is right now projected at current


SREC prices at $9 million so that is $16 million so thats related to the
comment that savings that the Improvement Authority made over the last 15
years has been wiped out. On Solar II between the budget and the whole solar
work that we did I havent looked closely at the Solar II numbers lately. It
has a lower breakeven point but at current SREC prices, it would still lose
money.
Administrator Bonanni said that there is a large swing to the best of
his recollection for the potential exposure based on if we build out or not
build out. There is about a $10 million or $11 million swing.
Freeholder Mastrangelo said from the last meeting, a recommendation was
made that we will do a review and analysis whether we build the projects out
or dont build the projects out to minimize the cost to the taxpayer.
Ms. Eames said she is not pleased that the Board uses a timer for each
person who wants to speak at the public portion.

WHEREAS, Pilgrim Pipeline Holdings, LLC ("Pilgrim") is proposing to


build a new bi-directional pipeline through Morris County that would transport
crude oil and refined petroleum products between Albany, New York, and Linden,
New Jersey; and
WHEREAS, the pipeline will carry oil extracted from North Dakota's
Bakken shale through the process of hydraulic fracturing or fracking, an
extreme method of oil and gas extraction that depletes and despoils clean
water resources, creates toxic air emissions and radioactive waste, and
releases large quantities of methane gas into the atmosphere; and
WHEREAS, in February, the Wall Street Journal compared oil from 86
locations around the world and found Bakken crude oil to be the most
explosive; and
WHEREAS, identical resolutions before New Jersey's 216th Legislature
(Assembly Resolution 191 and Senate Resolution 106) declare "The Pilgrim
Pipeline project raises significant safety concerns for the State of New
Jersey including potential harm to municipal and county infrastructure, and
would likely have a negative impact upon future development in the community";
and
WHEREAS, while Morris County is located in the heart of northern New
Jersey, the most densely populated state in the United States, nevertheless
through careful long term planning the densely populated portions of Morris
County are interwoven with open space areas designed for the protection of
Morris County's residents' water resources and other natural resources
including:
(a) the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, established more than 50 years
ago by the United States Department of Interior Wilderness Act, offering
protection to the headwaters of the Passaic River;
(b) the New Jersey Highlands Region created in 2004 by the New Jersey
legislature with the passage of the New Jersey Water Protection and Planning
Act to protect against the depletion of water quality and quantity, as the
region provides drinking water to 5.4 million New Jersey residents;
(c) Morris County through its Municipal Utilities Authority, its Park
Commission and through its Open Space Preservation Program have since 1993
dedicated tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to the preservation and
protection of its water and other natural resources; and

37

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 25, 2015


WHEREAS,

All of Chatham Borough and Madison Borough are served by public water
which comes from public wells within their boroughs. The wellhead
protection areas for these municipal wells fall within the proposed
pipeline route.

The Township of East Hanover and the Township of Montville are served by
public wells within their community. Some of these wells' wellhead
protection areas are within the proposed pipeline route.

The proposed route goes through the Buried Valley, Rockaway and
Highlands Sole Source Aquifers in Morris County.

The Pilgrim Pipeline would also cross two major transmission lines
delivering water to the east, the Newark Aqueduct in Pequannock Township
and the Jersey City Pipeline in Parsippany-Troy Hills.

WHEREAS, the County of Morris and its composite municipalities are


highly ground water dependent and rely on public community water systems and,
in places, functioning septic systems for waste disposal and the potential
impact of this pipeline project on groundwater quality and quantity and septic
fields along and near the project right-of-way is the source of grave concern
to this Board; and
WHEREAS, the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Morris is
concerned about the hazards the project may create due to the nature and
volume of the highly flammable oil flowing through the pipeline, and its
proposed route, which crosses both residential neighborhoods and
environmentally sensitive water protection areas - these areas will likely be
in the "impact radius" should an explosion and/or spill occur; and
WHEREAS, according to Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility,
the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration (PHMSA) only has 135
inspectors to oversee 2.6 million miles of pipeline, and only one-fifth of
that pipeline system has been inspected by PHMSA or its state partners since
2006; and
WHEREAS, the potential for an explosion of oil leaked from the pipeline
could harm hundreds of people, the Board has grave concerns about this project
negatively affecting the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens; and
WHEREAS, the pipeline project safety concerns for the County of Morris
includes potential harm to municipal and County aquifers and infrastructure
with significant potential for negative impact on future development within
the County; and
WHEREAS, the proposed project may result in a loss of tax revenue for
Morris County based on right-of-way agreements with Pilgrim Pipeline and a
decline in the property values of homes along and adjacent to the new pipeline
and surrounding neighborhoods as a direct result of the project; and
WHEREAS, protection of Morris County's water supply and resources is
better accomplished by prevention of contamination and environmental
degradation, rather than attempting to clean up contamination and restoring
degraded environments after the fact; and
WHEREAS, the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Morris seeks
to provide a safe environment for its residents, and this pipeline raises
serious safety concerns as described above; and
WHEREAS, balancing the risks to the many necessary measures taken by
various levels of government in terms of planning and investment by taxpayers
in the preservation and protection of infrastructure and natural/water
resources over the past three decades against the speculative benefits that
will accrue to Morris County citizens from completion of this pipeline
project, this Board finds the proposed pipeline project wanting and devoid of
merit.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, by the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the
County of Morris as follows:
1.

The Board opposes the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline.

38

BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS MARCH 25, 2015


2.

The Board calls for a moratorium on any and all planning, proposals,
surveying, or construction of the Pilgrim Pipeline through Morris
County.

3.

Because this project will traverse and may negatively impact numerous
significant natural areas and resources of the County and the Highlands
region, the Board requests that a full Environmental Impact Statement
(EIS) be conducted to assess the myriad environmental consequences of
the proposed project.

4.

The Clerk of the Board of Chosen Freeholders of the County of Morris


shall forward certified copies of this Resolution to the following:

provided by the professionals who were involved for months and months.
