The SRPLB continues to work hard towards the goal of insuring a successful program for the LSRPs and the environment. The SRPLB has continued to meet on a monthly basis throughout the summer and may return to a twice a month schedule this fall depending upon the agendas. Highlights of the August 5, 2013 meeting:
- 16 LSRP Audits were deemed complete;
- An additional course was approved for 6.5 Technical Credits and all approved courses are currently posted on the SRPLB website;
- The SRPLB is investigating the potential of preparing a curriculum for an Ethics class to be held by the SRPLB;
- The Finance Committee reported that the SRPLB finished fiscal year 2013 under budget;
- The Licensure Committee announced that the next exam will be held on March 19, 2014 and a new application will be available in the Fall of 2013;
- The Rules Committee is hoping to finalize the proposal by the Fall of 2013 and also issued a draft Statement of Interpretation on document retention;
- The Outreach Committee presented the new SRPLB web site (http://www.nj.gov/lsrpboard/), which will be visible soon; and
- The SRPLB authorized the New Jersey Attorney General, Division of Law to pursue a temporary restraining order, monetary penalties and all other appropriate
relief in Superior Court against Edward Korab of Thorndale, Pennsylvania. The
SRPLB alleges that Edward Korab who is not an LSRP, represented himself as such in submissions to the Department of Environmental Protection.
The SRPLB closed the August 5, 2013 meeting with a standing ovation and signs of gratitude towards Assistant Commissioner David Sweeney, who has also served as the Chairperson of the SRPLB since its inception in 2010. Chairman Sweeney will retire on August 31st after 30 plus years of public service and has proceeded over the SRPLB with great diligence and always stressed the importance of the SRPLB in the overall success of the LSRP program. For his style and work ethic, he will be a very hard act to follow; no replacement is known at this time.
