  1. Ballot Resolution: 1.8-Mill Renewal Levy.

    Ms. DePledge: If add to evening’s agenda it will be Legislation No.: 01-24-(01). 

    Mayor Morley: I forgot to call Mrs. Simons about the communications where it says 1.8-Mill Fire is that it is a General Fund Renewal Levy.  The renewal is and Ms. Schindel correct me if I am wrong. It is the renewal for the General Operating Fund and it will bring in about $408,000.00.

     Ms. Schindel: Approximately.

     Mayor Morley: With the renewal there is no tax increase.

     2. Ballot Resolution: 4.5-Mill Fire Levy.

    Ms. DePledge: If add to this evening’s agenda it will be Legislation No.: 01-24-(02).

    Mayor Morley: We have been having discussion on what that would be.  It would not sustain the Fire Department but it would help a lot and free up some money in the General Fund for the other Departments.

    3. Resolution: For a submerged land lease area to the Galalina Area Pump Station and Storm Sewers.

      Ms. DePledge: If add to this evening’s agenda it will be Legislation No.: 01-24-(03).

     Mr. Gwydir: As part of the Pump Station design for the Galalina area the ODNR has asked us to get a Submerged Land Lease.  It  is going to be combined with the Submerged Land Lease that you passed early last year for the WPCC Outfall.  I believe the cost a dollar a year and they are going to combine them so it will be a dollar a year for both.  They insisted that we have it.

    4. Resolution: To participate in the Ohio Cooperative Purchasing Program.

       Ms. DePledge: If add to this evening’s agenda it will be Legislation No.: 01-24-(04). 

    Ms. Schindel: The opportunity to join this coop is going to save us money in the long run.  I will cost us about $100.00 to $150.00 to join up with the State of Ohio Administrative Services Department.  To purchase whatever they offer and that they buy.  We can buy supplies and I know that Chief Reik was looking at it for something’s that he wanted to purchase.  It is a money saving opportunity for us to join in through the state.

     Ms. DePledge: The resolution just gives us the opportunity to participate but that we are buying anything?

     Ms. Schindel: Correct.

     5. Liquor License Permit: To Dale E. Colagross, d/b/a Bait Shop at 140 Forest Drive, Eastlake.

      6. Liquor License Permit: To American Croatian national Soccer Club at 34900 Lakeshore Blvd. Ste 305, Eastlake.

        Ms. DePledge: I have not received any objections from anyone regarding these liquor license permits.  So absent any comments or concerns they will be added to this evening’s agenda by a Motion later.


        Mayor Morley: Usually the answer comes from the Police Department and there were no objections.


        Ms. DePledge: Normally he would send me an email and I didn’t receive anything.  I assumed that they were okay.


 There were no further questions or comments.


 The meeting was adjourned at 7:04 p.m.
