There was no Legislation Pending.


  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.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:07 p.m.
