Mr. D’Ambrosio: These were discussed in the April 1st Planning Committee meeting. Mr. Evers, as you chaired that meeting would you like to comment?

Mr. Evers: The Planning Committee met April 1st with all members of the Committee in attendance. In attendance from Council were Ms. DePledge and Council President D’Ambrosio. Ms. Vaughn and Mr. Licht were absent and excused. In attendance from the Administration were Mayor Morley, Law Director Klammer and CBO McReynolds. Two items were discussed with the first being a Conditional Use Permit for Force Indoor Sports Eastlake. There were no objections to this from the Administration, Police Department or Committee so this item was moved forward. The second item was a Conditional Use Permit for Pete’s Bar & Grille, Inc. and this will also appear on the evening’s agenda. I am open for questions.

There were no further questions or comments.


There was no Legislation Pending.



Expenditure Request: WPCC 2014 Capital Improvements Project: $350,500           

Mr. D’Ambrosio: Mr. Slocum?

Mr. Slocum: The monies for this are on deposit with the sewer plant. They need our permission to move forward with this project. I think it was fully vetted earlier. It is our strong recommendation that this be adopted.

Mr. D’Ambrosio: Willoughby passed legislation approving this last week.

There were no further questions or comments.

Amendment: Resolution No. 2012-077, adopted November 27, 2012: Fire Pension Fund

Mr. D’Ambrosio: Mr. Slocum?

Mr. Slocum: We stopped picking up the employee portion of the pension with the salaries paid for this year. I thought the previous legislation covered this but the Pension Board has asked us to adopt this. It is just really a housekeeping issue because we are no longer picking up any portion of the employees share of the Fire Pension.

Mr. D’Ambrosio: Amending the resolution cleans this up.

There were no questions or comments.


The meeting was adjourned at approximately 7:03 p.m.
