  1. Resolution: To accept the title for a 1991 Pierce Dash Fire Engine from the Village of Fairport Harbor.

Mr. Meyers: This will be Legislation No.: 04-24-(01).  Chief Whittington would you like to comment on this?

Chief Whittington: Thank you Mr. President.  If you don’t remember the fleet that we have next door…we have a reserve fire engine that we use.  It’s really our back up in case something goes on with the newer pumper.  That reseve pumper we ended up getting a report back from our maintenance company that the frame rails are separating.  So that became a safety issue and we looked at a couple of different options.  I am working with the Mayor and maybe potentially doing something next year for the purchase of a fire engine, but we still need to have a reserve engine in there so we can still do maintenance on front line stuff.  I worked with Grand River…essentially what we are doing is we are replacing the reserve engine with a reserve engine.  They gave a pretty good price to use and I spoke to the Mayor and Finance Director.  We felt like it was a comfortable purchase.  They have actually let us come over and put it in the station just to make sure that it is a good fit for us.  As soon as we get everything passed and we get insurance on it we will put it in service.  But really essentially what I’m trying to do is a fire engine that can be a reserve that I can get about five years out of before we can start looking at some major purchase and that type of thing.  It is a simple thing as far as that goes.

Mayor Morley: The truck it is replacing is the one that you see sitting in the back and the frame is rusted out and obviously we don’t need that to happen while they are going down the road.  So we are working on seeing what we’re gonna try to do to get rid of it, but that’s the reason for the switch.

  1. Resolution: To accept the title to a Ford Licoln K-9 cruiser from Statewide for the Police Department.

Mr. Meyers: This will be Legislation No.: 04-24-(02).  Mayor Morley?

Mayor Morley:  I will do both number two and three.  The Ford is for the K-9 Unit that we are getting from Willoughby Hills.  As the Law Diretor said we will be taking the title and that is why you see it on here.  That is under the $25,000.00 and it is $10,000.00 and then for the Resolution for the State Bid for the two 2018 Ford Explorers from Lebanaon Ford.  They are also at State Bid and those were also…all of that has been in the budget that was approved already this year.

  1. Resolution: To purchase at State Bid cost two (2) 2018 Ford Explorers from Lebanaon Ford, Inc. for the Police Department.

Mr. Meyers: This will be Legislation No.: 04-24-(03).

  1. Ordinance: To reappropriate the expenses for the period beginning January 1, 2018 and ending on December 31, 2018.

Mr. Meyers: This will be Legislation No.: 04-24-(04).

Mayor Morley: That is for the roof repair for the Service Department.  Ms. Schindel is just putting the money from 101240 to 101810 so we can fix the roof.

  1. Resolution: To exercise City Option Number two and three of the Contract for Municipal Solid Waste Collection and Disposal Services for the Residents of the City of Eastlake.

Mr Meyers: This will be Legislation No.: 04-24-(05).

Mayor Morley: We had upto five years with Republic Waste…they have a renewal and we’ve done research and even at the end of our five…we did two years this year instead of last year we only did one year.  So we’ve extended two more years with two left.  At the end of the five years we are still going to be lower than most surrounding cities after we are done with this.  We have minimul complaints about Republic Waste and when we do they’ve been on it so we are requesting that we just sign over two and three this year for options.

Mr. Klammer: Mr. President did you have on there that Motion to make that payment on the Wellness Station for $500.00.  I don’t know if you the Motion on there.

Mr. Meyers: Not in Council-As-A-Whole it is in the Regular Council Meeting.

Mr. Klammer: You have it on there?

Mr. Meyers: Yes.

There were no questions at this time.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:05 p.m.
