What Would You Ask Holmdel Mayor Patrick Impreveduto?

Do you have a question you'd like to pose? The mayor has agreed to answer them on Patch later this week.

Holmdel Patch is launching a new feature: Names in the News.

Our goal with the feature is to give our users a chance to ask questions of decision-makers, business leaders and volunteers, to find out who they are and what they are thinking.

Periodically, we will be reaching out to our users with a suggested Names in the News candidate and a call for questions. We will then compile the questions, edit them, add some of our own and then pose them to the people you need to know better.

Our first Names in the News feature will be on Holmdel Mayor Patrick Impreveduto, who has kindly agreed to answer questions from the community. Please email questions to the Holmdel Patch Editor, christina.johnson@patch.com, or post them in the comments below.

We are taking suggestions for more "Names in the News" candidates, if you'd like to suggest someone.

Hi Steve! Have a beer.. Its on me! OR better yet, come support your volunteer Holmdel First Aid Squad on Sat June 2nd at Bayonet Farms (tickets are only $35) and I'll pour you a delicious glass of wine from a local vineyard in Colts Neck.. Then we can calmly debate how many people in town don't truly appreciate conservation easements and how important they are to maintaing our precious waterways and beautiful open spaces..

Are you suggesting by your present view that sewers are important to reduce pollution into the reservoir that an excessive number of our present septic systems are failing? If so, why aren’t doing something about the failures? Are you suggesting that even if subdivisions are properly processed, construction permits properly issued and inspections properly carried out, septic systems will frequently fail? Or are you saying that these three conditions are not met in Holmdel? If so, why not? Or are you saying that inappropriate use of a septic system can result in failure? If this is your problem, why haven't residents been provided with guidelines concerning the use of Septic Systems? Are you not aware of the treatment plant failures and the resultant pollution of the Sound? Are you not aware of the projections that New Jersey and Monmouth County, in particular, is projected to have a serious shortage of drinking water in the near future and that our aquifer is already marginal and that sewers takes water that would flow back into the acquirer? Have you taken time to look into the traffic generated by alternate uses and how almost any alternative uses suggested for the existing building would produce traffic each hour of each day, 8AM to 9PM, 7 days a week, equal to the traffic generated one hour in the morning and one hour in late afternoon 5 days a week by Lucent?

Another question for the mayor: Is your online profile Nick J?

Why didn't the township committee hold an open public discussion of the Redevelopment plan? How is the Redevelopment designation going to impact the school district taxes? Where did the 225 houses and full-on sewers come from, considering that previously a significant number of Holmdel residents (including the Mayor) opposed the large residential component and sewer extension on Lucent property? And one question where an answer is not really expected... who is going to be profiting from this sudden change?

Will Holmdel residents and taxpayers actually read the Patch and think beyond their own backyard about these questions for the Mayor? Will Larrabee M. Smith's excellent points go unanswered by our Mayor, ignored by long time sewer proponents and encourage all of Holmdel to hold our Township Committee accountable for the enormous economic drain they plan to put in the middle of the watershed and right down the street from our schools?? Will the Holmdel hired professionals (and other vested interests) destined to make their fortune from the Redevelopment Plan be able to advise the Mayor on his responses without a distinct conflict of interest? Will the answers from the Mayor actually address the issues or be more vague rhetoric typical of many elected and appointed officials? AND Will Holmdel citizens help out our First Aid by attending and supporting their wine tasting fund raiser at Bayonet Farm? Wasn't Michael Nikolis plug for the First Aid Fund Raiser 6/6 @ Bayonet Farm clever and doesn't this good cause deserve every Holmdelian's support?
