Merchants split on SID tax - Union Navigator, 16 Mar 2011 [cached]
This year $158,900 was raised by this special tax, $55,000 of that number, or 35 percent, going towards SID Executive Director Michael Minitelli's salary. The other portion of his salary, $68,259, comes from an additional position he holds as director of Economic Development for the township, for a total income of $123,259. As SID executive director for the past 17 years, Minitelli felt the budgeted SID tax dollars have gone to good use. "Without the SID, the center would be in much worse condition," the SID director said in an interview several weeks ago. Some property and business owners agreed with Minitelli, but others felt they were not getting their money's worth, or that these dollars could be used more wisely.

Other complaints claim that even though ..., 16 Mar 2011 [cached]
Other complaints claim that even though SID Executive Director Michael Minitelli is paid to focus his efforts on promoting the center and work with business owners, few see him except when he is working on an advertising campaign that they have to pay for themselves. Others admitted that when they tried to voice these complaints to Minitelli, he ignored their concerns. In an interview with Minitelli in November, the SID director said he felt SID dollars were being put to good use, citing that while he agreed there were not as many promotional events, he was working on the Festival on the Green promotional event scheduled for the fall of 2011. He also mentioned that he spent considerable time planning a Bridal Expo last spring that a good number of business owners participated in, even though the event was forced inside to tight quarters because of bad weather. Business owners did not dispute that the Bridal Expo was a great concept, but they had a major problem with it being held outside. "When you are spending our tax dollars, you have to consider these things, because if its raining, people are not going to attend," said one longtime property owner in the center. Minitelli was not able to recall exactly how much it cost to put on the Bridal Expo, but he offered to supply those numbers later.
Other business property owners brought up that Minitelli dealt exclusively with the Suburban News and The Star-Ledger, owned by Penn Jersey Advance Newspapers, rather than splitting this advertising with other local newspapers. Specifically, their complaints centered on the fact that if they had to pay for their own ads then they should have a say in where these ads run. In late November, Minitelli explained that he contributed SID tax dollars to business owners ads by paying for banner ads or color to highlight special sections in which their ads ran during the year. He also said business owners participating in these ad campaigns received sizable discounts for the ads they took with the Suburban News. Invoices and bills obtained through OPRA from the township clerk for 2005 through 2010 indicated that Minitelli paid a total of $106,844 during that time period to the Suburban News and Star Ledger for special event or banner ads for special events.
It should be noted that all ads placed in The Star-Ledger by Minitelli were for special events in the center and not in conjunction with special sections in which business owners participated.
