PERTH AMBOY — Business Administrator Greg Fehrenbach addressed the concerns of resident Stanley Sierakowski at the October 22, 2012 Caucus Meeting. This had to do with the Caucus and Council Meeting that was held on the same date of October 10, 2012.

Some portions of the meetings were interrupted and when the meeting resumed it was not broadcast in its entirety. Sierakowski said that instead of the meeting being picked up where it had left off in its place was a local event not having to do with the meeting at all. “95% of the Caucus was broadcasted. I was cut off when talking about the Chief. When the screen came back on Balut spoke for a short period of time, then the screen went blank. Then something totally different came on. Board Meetings are broadcast all the time, even meetings that are a month old.”

Fehrenbach said, “Not all employees connected with PA-TV are residents of the City.”

Councilman Fernando Gonzalez asked, “So you could not call any custodians available to open the High School to gain access to the PA-TV office to correct a glitch in the system for emergency purposes?”

At one point George Bonilla who tapes the Council Meetings was called forward by the Council to answer a question.

Bonilla said, “There had to be someone available who has knowledge to operate all of the computer systems.”
