LEGISLATION PROPOSED:

There was no Legislation Proposed.

There were no questions at this time.

LEGISLATION PENDING:

Ms. DePledge: At our last Meeting we suspended the rules for two items, so there are two items under Legislation Pending.  However, we did not adopt them and they are items 12-12-(01) and12-12-(06).  They were both discussed in Council-As-A-Whole last week.  And they will be added to this evening’s agenda to be adopted.

MISCELLANEOUS:

12-19-(01): Ordinance: To re-appropriate for the expenses beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending on December 31, 2017.

Ms. DePledge: I will now turn it over to our Finance Director Schindel.

Ms. Schindel: This is just a change within the Police Department’s cost centers.  It is to take $10,000.00 out of the Police Station Building and put it into the Police/Law Enforcement.

12-19-(02): Ordinance: To enter into an agreement with the International Association of Fire Fighters, Local 2860, the AFLCIO for the contract period of 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Ms. DePledge: Mayor did you want to address that?

Mayor Morley: Items two and three are agreements with the City and the Fire Union that we discussed in Executive Session and AFSME.  Both Unions have ratified their agreements, so we just need the ratification of the City Council for those to go into effect.

12-19-(04): Ordinance: Amending Chapter 184 “Income Tax-2016 Tax Year and Later”

Ms. DePledge: Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: These changes were brought to us by R.I.T.A., because of the Ohio Revised Code changes that were made in the budget back in June that we were required to include and adopt.  So R.I.T.A. had put forth changes and that’s all that’s in here.

LEGISLATION PROPOSED:

  1. 12-12-(01): Ordinance: An appropriation for the expenses for 2018.

Ms. DePledge: I will turn it over to our Finance Director.

Ms. Schindel: Thank you.  Every year in December we have to come before you to ask permission to spend some money in January, which is basic electric, utilities and salary checks.  So the estimate that we put together really just covers a couple of months until the full budget is prepared and presented to you for discussion and approval.  This is really last year’s numbers with the exception of a few large projects…Stormwater sewer projects.  It is just for a couple of months and it is to make sure that we can pay bills until the real budget is approved.

  1. 12-12-(02): Ordinance: To enter into a Grant Incentive with Mold Masters Intl. LLC.

Ms. DePledge: Is this the Mayor or Finance Director?

Mayor Morley: Mold Masters is the company that we’ve talked about before that is going in on Melinz Parkway.  They started out with 160 employees and they will be up to 280 by April 2018.  It is the seven year incentive.  I stated before that it was going to $8.5 to $9 Million payroll and it is an $11 to $12 Million payroll.   As we discussed they will get the 1% and Ms. Schindel will get that at the end of the year when all of the income tax comes in from R.I.T.A. on their payroll.  We are looking forward to them moving in and forward to them being prosperous for the city.

  1. 12-12-(03): Resolution: Authorizing the Lake County Auditor to place unpaid bills on   the tax duplicator for collection.

Ms. DePledge: Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: During the year the Chief Building Official is required to send a contractor out to cut grass for certain buildings and residents.  Should they not pay us by October then we come to you and ask permission to put it on the tax duplicate.  This is a list of unpaid bills to the city for work done that is put on the tax duplicate, then we can recoup our money.

  1. 12-12-(04): Resolution: To enter into a Water Pollution Control Loan Fund Agreement with the Ohio EPA for the design, planning and/or construction of the Waverly 1 Relief Sanitary Sewer Project.

Ms. DePledge: Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: The Waverly Project is estimated to be approximately $4,700,000.00…we can get a loan through the State for 1.84 interest rate and the annual payments would be approximately $284,000.00 if we take out a 20 year loan.  We are asking is that we take out a 20 year loan for this amount at the 1.84 interest rate.

Mayor Morley: We stated in the Finance Meeting that the money will come out of the Sanitary Sewer Fund for payments.

  1. 12-12-(05): Resolution: To accept a grant from Petsafe for equipment for the dog park.

Mayor Morley: That was Mrs. Kolk…the Petsafe Grant that we applied for…it is to accept the $5,000.00 and equipment.

  1. 12-12-(06): Ordinance: To reappropriate for the expenses beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending on December 31, 2017.

Ms. DePledge: Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: This is to increase the cost center in the Building Department for this grass cutting.  We actually did more this year then what we originally budgeted.  We are asking permission to be able to expend $5,000.00 in this year’s budget.  And what we have asked for to correspond to that is that we are going to reduce one of the other costs centers by $5,000.00.  So we are not changing the overall budget, we are just changing to cost centers.  And we do recoup the money.

There were no questions at this time.

LEGISLATION PENDING:

There was no Legislation Pending.

LEGISLATION PROPOSED:

There was no Legislation Proposed.

LEGISLATION PENDING:

There was no Legislation Pending.

MISCELLANEOUS:

  1. Ordinance: Designating depositors for active and interim funds for the City of Eastlake.

Ms. DePledge: If added tonight it will be Legislation No.: 11-14-(01).  Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: Thank you.  The ordinance that we have on hand listed several banks before they started doing mergers, therefor the names are wrong and the players have changed.  We are not changing banks in this regards.  But I want to update this so that it has the proper names.

  1. Ordinance: To reappropriate for the expenses beginning on January 1, 2017 and ending on December 31, 2017.

Ms. DePledge: If added tonight it will be Legislation No.: 11-14-(02).  Ms. Schindel?

Ms. Schindel: Thank you and yes some of these funds…the revenue expectation is not coming in where I had originally budgeted, and therefor I need to lower the expenses so that we can stay within the amount coming in.  So all this is doing is lowering those expenses where the revenue doesn’t match.

  1. Resolution: To accept a donation of a Personal Watercraft, trailer, rescue board and auxiliary equipment from Spirit of America Foundation.

Ms. DePledge: Chief Whittington?

Chief Whittington: Thank you Madam President.  The Spirit of America approached us and they have a…if you have ever heard of them they do a lot of boater safety.  They work with a lot of different cities for that.  The work with the City of Mentor a lot, because they have a trailer for their motor safety.  They approached us and they sent the vessels that use…jetski are that they use to do training on.  They replaced those and when they replaced them they approached the city.  Last year or two years ago the approached Fairport Harbor.  They work with Fairport Harbor…they trained with them and now they have a Jet Ski service in Fairport Harbor.  The Spirit of America got in contact with me recently and they gave us the same opportunity.  They are going to provide us with a jet ski.  We are working on some other equipment that would go along with the Jet Ski.  They have already come out and did some training with us on how to use the Jet Ski.  That would be another piece of equipment for spring and summer time…for us to have for the lake and the river.  It is probably a more affective vessel for when the lake or the river is choppy as compared to the boat that we use sometimes.  I gave the paper work to the Law Director and think that the Finance Director looked at it.  There really is no strings attached…they gave us the title…

Ms. DePledge: A donation?

Chief Whittington: Yeah.

Ms. DePledge: Thank you Chief Whittington.

Chief Whittington: Thank you.

  1. Ordinance: Amending Section 155.01 “General Administration” specifically Subsection “b.”

Ms. DePledge:

  1. Resolution: To enter into a contract with EnviroCom Construction, Inc. for the Galalina Area Storm Sewers and Pump Station.

Ms. DePledge: Mr. Gwydir?

Mr. Gwydir: Thank you Madam President.  We recently bid the Galalina Area Storm Sewers and Pump Station and EnviroCom has the winning bid.  It is $1,583,000.00 for the bid.  It will just be the pump station.  I believe that Ms. Schindel can comment on the fact that Lake County Stormwater has an MOU with the city now for those funds.

Ms. DePledge: If added that will be Legislation No.: 11-14-(05) and number four will be added as Legislation No.: 11-14-(04).

  1. Conditional Use Permit: For an Indoor Sports Performance to Dennis Marty Moushey d/b/a Tap Fitness.

Ms. DePledge: If added this evening it will be Legislation No.: 11-14-(06).  Mr. Menn?

Mr. Menn: Actually number six and seven are basically tied together, because number seven is actually the business owner of the building.  Tap Fitness which is the first one, we are asking that these went to Planning Commission for approval and now it is on to Council for a Conditional Use Permit for an indoor fitness center…the space off of East 354th Street.  And the business owner for number seven is asking, because he has a couple of other businesses that want to come into the building and he asked for a Conditional Use Permit for them.  The building is right on the B-1 and M-2 District line.  Most of the building is kind of unique…Quickys Drive Through if you know where that is...there a building attached to that, that is all B-1.  As you go further down that street the last building is actually an M-2 and he owns all of that.  The Fire Department and I have both been there and we don’t see any issues at all.  It went to the Planning Commission and now it is on to Council.

  1. Conditional Use Permit: To Tony Centanne d/b/a Vine Street Properties Eastlake LLC.

Ms. DePledge:

  1. Conditional Use Permit: To Kevin Jackson d/b/a Action Automotive.

Ms. DePledge:  Mr. Menn would you like to address this?

Mr. Menn: This is the old C&C Automotive down here on Lakeshore Blvd. right by Coopers.  We have a new owner and it went to the Planning Commission and they have approved the use with the same conditions that were there before with C&C Automotive.

Ms. DePledge: The last three items will be added as Legislation No.: 11-14-(06), 11-14-(07) and 11-14-(08).  Is there anyone from Council that has any questions or comments for these items?

There were no further questions or comments.

Ms. Schindel: Thank you.  What I have before you is an increase in Stormwater Management.  That is totally reimbursable by the County.  It is for wrapping up…and we actually did do some extra catch basins this year, because the weather held out so long. So we would like to be able to have a little bit of extra money in that fund to cover additional Stormwater costs.  Then the insurance proceeds fund we previously…I received permission from Council to go ahead and spend up to a certain amount provided that the insurance funds came in.  But I never changed the insurance line on the budget, so I am just asking permission to expend up to $250,000.00 on the budget as I know of things today.  And no I do not have the full $250,000.00 of course I wouldn’t spend the whole $250,000.00.  But I would like the flexibility should it come in to make the commitment for the 911 dispatch and phone system.  Between now and December 31st.

There were no questions at this time.

ORDINANCE COMMITTEE MEETING

 

OCTOBER 18, 2017

 

Committee Member Mr. Meyers opened the meeting at approximately 6:03 ­­­p.m. Members of the Committee in attendance were Mr. Meyers and Mr. Spotton. Present from Council were, Mr. Kasunick and Mr. Evers.  Committee Chair Mr. Hoefle, Mr. Zuren and Council President Ms. DePledge was absent and excused.

In attendance from the Administration were Mayor Morley and Law Director Klammer. 

There were no members of the public in attendance.

 

PROPOSED

  1. Format changes to Council-As-A-Whole and the Regular Council Meeting to reduce redundancies.

    Mr. Meyers: I will now turn it over to Mr. Klammer.

     Mr. Klammer: We had talked about this over the years and our prior Council Clerk and I think that the Mayor will attest that she was very defensive of procedures that had always been the case.  So from time to time I would mention it and she would kind of cringe because she didn’t want to change anything.  I love her and she is the best but she was kind of defensive of those things.  I am just proposing so that we don’t have to go through…under Robert’s Rules of Order you can adopt the agenda for the night.  A lot of places adopt the agenda before the meeting starts…that’s the official agenda.  What I am proposing is that you are going to have these things in Council-As-A-Whole and you can have your objection.  If anybody has an objection of something winding up on the agenda you will have that discussion in Council-As-A-Whole.  Then when you get to Council-As-A-Whole it will be on there as a proposed item.  So instead of going motion by motion to add it to the agenda…I’m just saying it winds up on the agenda we will do one motion to adopt the agenda.  That is just going to eliminate one set of readings…motion to add such and such to the agenda.  You’re just going to go right into your normal procedure like any piece of legislation.  You’ll discuss it…three readings the waiver…I am just trying to eliminate that motion for each one to add it to the agenda.  So you’re just going to propose to putting it on there and one motion to adopt the agenda and then just move it forward, as opposed to seven motions, a second and a roll call just to add it to the agenda, little lone to vote to adopt.   That’s all that I’m proposing, because it will be on for Council-As-A-Whole you’ll hear if anybody has any objection and we will just eliminate that one from the motion to add it, if there is a debate on it.  That is just too kind of stream line it.  So everybody will still get their debate in Council-As-A-Whole and you will still get to vote as normal on the actual adoption.  I’m just trying to eliminate the motion to add process.  We can try it for a few meetings and if anybody has any anxiousness we can go back to the old way, but it is certainly permitted by the rules.

     Mr. Meyers: Anybody have any thoughts?

     Mayor Morley: I brought it up the last time when I was on Council so, but like he said Mrs. Cendroski didn’t like to do those things.  I just think that it…not stream lines it…it’s on there and you adopt it again.  Like what Mr. Klammer said if there is something on the six that are on there that someone has a problem with then you just bring that up.  So when you guys vote to say that we are putting it on the agenda tonight…to do a roll call vote it’s already there so it should just go to the agenda.

     Mr. Klammer: You can even do it if you have five or six things that are all rather uncontroversial she can just say if there are no objections I am going to take that the agenda is adopted by a unanimous consent and you can vote on that.

     Mr. Spotton: So we are still going to have Council-As-A-Whole to have your chance to discuss items and that is not going to change at all?  So now we go into the Regular Meeting just adopting one through whatever with no objections as one shot.

     Mayor Morley: Right.

     Mr. Klammer: One shot yeah.

     Mayor Morley: Instead of reading each one and voting…

     Mr. Klammer: You’re still going to read each one when you vote to adopt that…we a just eliminating the motion to add it to the agenda for each one.  Each one will still be considered on its own when you do your motion to adopt.

     Mr. Spotton: I just want to make sure I don’t lose the time in the meeting to say Mayor can you make a comment?  Just as long as we still have that…the meeting then.

     Mr. Klammer: Like I said we can try it at a couple of meetings and if we don’t then we can go back.  I don’t think that we will have any problems though.  At the meeting that we had recently we must have had about ten of them and I was just like enough’s enough I have to propose this again.  I will walk with Mrs. Simons and Ms. DePledge on how to do it and take it from there.

     Mr. Meyers: Does anybody else have any thoughts or comments?  I would like to poll the Committee…Mr. Spotton would you like to move this forward?

     Mr. Spotton: Move it forward.

     Mr. Meyers: I vote to move it forward also.

     Mr. Klammer: I will get with Mrs. Simons and Ms. DePledge and see what is best for everybody to kind of stream line it.

  2. Regarding Chapter 770 Titled “Medical Marijuana Licensure” to amend Sections 770.10 “License fees” and 770.11 specifically Subsection (e).

Mr. Klammer: As I explained in my Director’s Report last time…it is actually more extensive than this, but what Mrs. Simons printed here was a segment from my email to Buckeye Relief when we were making another change to that section.  So this is actually a more comprehensive change in just those sections.  We are adding in a whole section for licensure of the dispensaries. So we didn’t have dispensary at all before so we are adding in a whole new subsection and in the process we also had to add in some new definitions and stuff.  If you were to compare this to our…things are different but we had to add some definitions and move some things around.  Substantively though the big thing that we added was fees for the dispensary and that whole new subsection that I think is 770.11.  It is the whole subsection for dispensaries.  Before we didn’t have dispensary and now we have dispensary.  We tried to add in some sections here to make sure that it is going to be classy for the lack of a better term.  Obviously no drive through that was a given anyway, but added thing’s about interior and exterior design, to be consistent with a medical facility as opposed to basically a head shop, so that they are nice facilities.  No darkened windows, no moving or flashing strobe lights, no loitering.  Just wanted to make it more of a medical facility like it is…more like a drug store or a clinic as opposed to it…you hate to have it end up looking like a head shop or something like that.  Buckeye Relief is aware of those conditions and they were in agreement with them.

Mayor Morley: What I have explained to the people that have called in…I was telling Mr. Menn…who used thebe the Mayor of Flagstaff, AZ, I talked to her today and she has six of them in Arizona.  She just wanted to see where the areas that they are going to be in…like what we talked about in Staff…it is in the B-1 district.  I know that some of the Councilmen may have had some concern about maybe putting them somewhere else, but I think that what we talked about yesterday the B-1 works.

Mr. Klammer: I think that they’ve hit within the definition already of B-1, because that covers drug stores and pharmacies.  That seems to be consistent with that district anyways.  M. Menn had some concerns that he wanted identified in the ordinance and I think that it is covered by the zoning.  Look at the licensure separate from the zoning.  He did text me earlier today to indicate that he agrees that it should go in a B-1 as well, which is basically buying some spots on Lakeshore.  Again we a limited by state and county…two Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula…

Mayor Morley: Lake, Geauga and Portage…there will be two total.  Like I said and I think when Mr. Hoefle asked me and I may have talked to Mr. Meyers…if it ends up eventually going to recreational then we will just look at a whole different ordinance for that, because again I don’t want them to be up and down Vine Street either.

Mr. Klammer: Well we don’t have…and this is all by definition medical marijuana anyways.  So if it were to change to recreational we don’t have zoning that allows recreation or a licensure that allows recreational if that makes sense.

Mr. Spotton: Two per county…every article is…

Mayor Morley: There are going to be two in three counties.  Lake, Geauga and Portage…two at this point and again I don’t know if we will even get one.  But we have to be set up with…what all of this is about is and everyone that I’ve talked too.  I’ve probably talked to about five or six people that want to look at dispensaries, they have to have it into the state by November 17.  Like what we had to do for the cultivation, they have to have a contract like if Buckeye or Growth Orchard, they have to have a sales contract when they hand it in, that they have somewhere to put it.

Mr. Klammer: You mean for the real property?

Mayor Morley: It has to be November 17 that a few of them told me and a few of them told me that some of them want to hand it in by November 3.  I’ve had November 10 and that’s why when I talked…depending on how many meetings you guys want to do on it or as long we try to have it by the end of October.  If we have to have extra meetings that’s what I’d ask, but that’s your guys call.

Mr. Klammer: So they already have I think a contract contingent upon getting a licensure for a property already.

Mayor Morley: The other one said that they were going to call in when they have a property and I said to check with the Building Department to make sure it’s a spot that they would be eligible. 

Mr. Klammer: Yeah that’s it…really just to add a dispensary and can we increase the fines or the fees for the dispensary to $15,000.00?

Mayor Morley: Yeah from $5,000.00 to $15,000.00.

Mr. Klammer: So there is an additional fee for the dispensary.  It seems to be the wave of the future.

Mr. Meyers: Does anybody have any thoughts?  Mr. Evers or Mr. Kasunick?

Mr. Kasunick: Were there any serious proposals to put a dispensary in Eastlake?  Or did anybody…I know that you said that you talked to somebody.

Mayor Morley: Buckeye is the only one that I know that spot land so far.

Mr. Kasunick: That was for the…

Mayor Morley: They bought land for the…

Mr. Kasunick: For a dispensary as well as a…so in Eastlake.

Mayor Morley: Yeah and there are a couple of others that…like I said today the former Mayor of Flagstaff is looking.  We’ve had four others and we’ve had numerous calls and that is what made us to start having a discussion with Mr. Menn and Mr. Klammer.  Numerous calls about people who are going to apply but they have not yet that we are aware of…purchased any land or put anything under contract.  The only one that we are aware of is Buckeye.

Mr. Kasunick: Where did they purchase land at?

Mayor Morley: Right on…do you know where Bonkers used to be?

Mr. Spotton: Where Blue Sky Bicycles.

Mayor Morley: Where the Blue Sky Bikes are…they bought that plaza.

Mr. Kasunick: Okay.

Mr. Klammer: Subject to getting their license yet…it is contingent as least as what I understand we don’t…

Mr. Meyers: Mr. Evers?

Mr. Evers: Anything under suspension…suspension and revocation it’s the last page.  All licenses issued under this chapter shall be suspended or revoked upon recommendation of the Board of Zoning Appeals”…if for any reason something illegal happens do we have to wait for the Board of Appeals to have a meeting to suspend a license?  To me we are saying that no matter what happens and we want to revoke that license it’s got to go through the Zoning Board of Appeals and I’m not happy with that.  The Safety Director or the Chief of Police…suspend that license temporarily until the Board of Zoning Appeals it.

Mr. Klammer: Can you let me look at it more carefully to see if there’s any…

Mr. Evers: It’s a question on my part.

Mr. Klammer: I think that this is the existing…that part is in the existing ordinance now.  But I couldn’t imagine even if we changed that it’s going to slow any of it down.  They are still prepared to go forward.

Mayor Morley: There is going to be one that is going to BZA tomorrow and it will eventually come to you guys on some other issue.  That is the language that we’re using.

Mr. Klammer: We do have that the Safety Directory has the authority to suspend and revoke.

Mayor Morley: I think that’s just giving them an option to go to BZA.

Mr. Klammer: Usually we give them the right to appeal, but I want to make sure…

Mayor Morley: That one section you did have the Safety Director.

Mr. Klammer: Let me double check to make sure that they are consistent.  No matter when you suspend a license they have to have the right to appeal it.  I will look at it again.

Mr. Evers: Thank you.

Mr. Meyers: I have a question in reading through this it says “that we will not allow home delivery of medical marijuana.”  I do know that some states are allowing this, is that something that we should possibly consider?

Mr. Klammer: I don’t know if the state already prohibits it…the MARA prohibits it.  It looks like that provision was probably a draft.  That may have already been added by Buckeye Relief when they did the revisions.  The drive-in and drive through sales and the home delivery.  I think that is prohibited and I would have to double check to give you an answer. They want to have the license when and take their license and all of that stuff in the facility.  Good?

Mr. Meyers: I think so.
