By Liz SheehanSANDY HOOK- After attempts reaching back to 1999, The National Park Service (NPS) announced on May 9 that it has finally issued the first lease on a building in Officers Row in historic Fort Hancock.The lease was issued to Brian Samuelson and Joseph Dorsey.Daphne Yun, acting public affairs officer, said the details of the 60-year lease were not available.Samuelson, of Atlantic Highlands, said that work was being done on the two-family house, known as building 21, which faces Sandy Hook Bay. The goal is to get one section, which has three bedrooms, ready for occupancy this summer.Samuelson said Tuesday that the building would be rented out for monthly or seasonal use, or for holiday vacations, such as Christmas or Thanksgiving. This is consistent with his application, which said the house would be used as “a family residence in the off-season and a weekly, monthly or seasonal rental during the summer months.”Samuelson, an airplane pilot, said that “everything is up in the air,” when asked if he would be using the house as a residence.The application also said that Samuelson was interested in rehabilitating “between one and five” other buildings on Officers Row.When asked if he would be doing other renovations of buildings at the fort, he replied that he would handle “one crisis at a time,” but “I’m keeping an open mind.”The announcement from the park service of the lease quoted Samuelson and Dorsey as saying, “We hope to eventually make accommodations for the general public for summer rentals” which plan to advertise with a website.The park service’s first attempt to lease the buildings was in 1999, when a 60-year lease was given to Rumson developer James Wassel to renovate and commercially develop more than 36 buildings at the fort. The park service said it did not have the funds to restore the buildings covered in the lease. The proposal was met by strong opposition from local residents who formed Save Sandy Hook, a grassroots organization, to oppose the plan.The Wassell lease was cancelled in 2009, when the developer, after a series of extensions, was not able to show he had the financial means to rehabilitate the buildings.In 2012, a notice was put in the Federal Register that an advisory committee would be appointed by the Secretary of the Interior with White House Approval to form plans for Ft. Hancock’s future. The committee, named the Fort Hancock 21st Century Committee, has 23 members, including local elected officials.The interior of the building.

The proposed rent would be offset by the cost of renovation.The terms of the lease would be based on fair market value, John Warren, External Affairs Officer at the NPS, said.According to the NPS the Fort Hancock has been a major factor in the defense of the New York harbor since colonial days. It served as a proving ground and was renamed in 1895 and deactivated in 1974.

The federally funded document will examine three scenarios, including moving away from so-called “vulnerable coastal areas,” and recommend steps government and other stakeholders in the region, like NJ Transit, can take to be more resilient. The public got to see the latest on the regional project, called The New Jersey Fostering Regional Adaptation through Municipal Economic Scenarios (NJ FRAMES), at an open house July 10 at the Middletown Arts Center. “There should certainly be a strategy for areas that are at risk to be bought out by Blue Acres over time where needed,” she said. “We do not need to vacate the entire Jersey Shore and we certainly don’t want to. We don’t want to because we love our shore and also because it is an economic engine for tourism.” Some ideas call for the state Department of Transportation, local governments and the county to work on infrastructure projects, like raising sidewalks and roads. “Ultimately, it’ll create a plan, working with the representatives from the 15 towns and stakeholders and the public, for how they can take action or how they and the state, they and the county and they and the federal government can take action based on the threats that we’re seeing from sea level rise and future coastal events,” said Nicholas Angarone, bureau chief with the DEP’s office of climate resiliency and planning. “We’re providing them the options to make informed decisions.” This October will mark the seventh anniversary of Super Storm Sandy hitting the state and devastating the coastal region of Monmouth County. “This went from being a conversation that we were having at DEP and some environmental groups and some advocates were having and some towns, to being on the front page every day that people were looking to address,” Angarone said. “The 15 towns here have been very progressive in taking this action to start having what are ultimately difficult conversations.” Yet in a state where local control rules in municipal government, Long said she thought the challenge would be getting “local buy-in for the recommendations” in the report. Part of the project looks at water levels, projected at different time frames through the century, of as much as 12 feet above the norm due to combined effects of sea level rise and bad storms. Data from a Rutgers University report projecting sea level rise is being used for the project. Howard said she favors an approach that was applied in Wayne, where a government program called Blue Acres was used to buy homes of willing sellers who live in flood-prone areas of that community. A report by the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will offer policy recommendations, both in the short and long term, for how to respond to future coastal flooding in the Two River region, in the face of rising sea levels and potential major storms in the coming decades. “So we all need to be coordinating and working together,” she said. By Philip Sean Curran At Naval Weapons Station Earle, a military installation in Monmouth County, the federal government spends about $100 million every 10 years to strengthen and repair the pier complex. But during Sandy, Earle suffered $50 million worth of damage. Area map of 15 towns, displayed at the open house. Photo by Philip Sean Curran “We are pretty damn sure, based on the science, based on carbon emissions and climate change, that sea level is going to rise,” Angarone said. The report that gets released at the end of 2019 will show how all layers of government will have a role to play. None of the recommendations for policy changes will be binding on the towns, however. “We’ve been saying from the beginning water doesn’t respect a municipal boundary,” she said. “Whatever we do in one town has to be consistent to the next town to the next town. Otherwise, we’re just spinning our wheels.” Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long, arguing that flooding is not “a singular problem” for her community, said she pushed for a multijurisdictional approach to the issue. She said flooding “affects all the towns along the Shrewsbury and Navesink rivers.” The NJ FRAMES project was an outgrowth of the storm, as mayors decided to work collaboratively. “None of this would have happened but for Super Storm Sandy,” Long said. “This started out as a desire to coordinate locally across municipal boundaries.” “The Navy will take care of its own infrastructure,” said Dennis Blazak, community plans and liaison officer at the installation, at the open house. “We’ll always want to be ready to do the mission we have. But if we’re the only ones that do it and the community doesn’t also prepare, then we’ll just be an island in the stream.” At the open house last week there were maps of the region for the different scenarios the project team has laid out for 2030, 2050 and 2100. For 2030, in the “protecting our communities from the water” scenario, suggested steps call for raising bulkheads in north Rumson and closing seawall gaps in Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach, among other things. In some actions, towns can take steps on their own, but there are “things that have to be done at a regional scale,” Angarone said. Paid for with a roughly $900,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the project was launched in 2016. The Two Rivers Council of Mayors applied for the funding, with the state performing “the analysis and the planning” for the 15 communities, Monmouth Beach Mayor Sue Howard said.

Payments overhaul About 760 government departments, agencies and municipalities have been asked to supply the call centre with the names of people responsible for payments. To date, 512 have responded. There are about 2.4-million registered SMMEs in South Africa, accounting for 40% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). Small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) experiencing late payments of more than 30 days after doing business with the government can now call a hotline on 0860 766 3729 or fax their details to 012 452 0458 for assistance. Through the hotline, launched by Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies in Pretoria this week, a group of agents will provide a single point of contact to facilitate the speedy payment for services or products provided to the government. Davies said payment processes within the government needed a complete overhaul. “Some of the procedures and processes have remained a stumbling block, and it’s a major challenge that we need to address. Davies said that while the delays could be absorbed by larger companies with access to credit, late payments could have devastating consequences for small firms. “It is our experience that small enterprises are still being paid extremely late, in some instances after 90 days, and this is adversely affecting the viability of small business,” he said. Davies said a number of small businesses had in the past been forced to close down as a result of delays in payments, adding that the Public Finance Management Act called for contractual obligations on accounts to be settled within 30 days of receipt of invoice. 21 September 2009 ‘Contractual obligation’ Source: BuaNews The Small Enterprise Development Agency will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the call centre. The agency will compile annual reports identifying the major reasons for late payments and identifyiing government departments prone to the problem. “Of course we need to ensure that the processes and procedures are such that they ensure proper control and efficient use of resources, but we must at the same time cut out the unnecessary stress and procedures that delay payments unnecessary,” he said.

Twitter/@CoachZachSmithThe high-scoring NCAA Football game between Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones and Jared Foley, a Buckeyes fan that he visited in the hospital before the national championship, is quickly becoming one of the most hotly-contested video game results that we can remember. The game was originally thought to be a 91-35 win for Jones, but yesterday he clarified that he added a late touchdown to make it 98-35.Clearly, Jones wants to get credit for all of the points he scored, but he may have undersold Foley’s effort himself.
