10-22-(01): Amendment: Ordinance Section 751.07 “Inspection before Licensing Vehicles; Rules”
Mr. Morley: Mr. Hoefle?
Mr. Hoefle: This was discussed in last Tuesday’s Ordinance Committee meeting. Chief Reik brought this to our attention in regards to taxi cabs and having them inspected. It was decided to push this over to the Ohio State Patrol. They have their own units to conduct inspection of the vehicles.
There were no questions or comments.
10-22-(02): Contract: Fire Department Structure Roof Repairs: A&I Roofing: $24,995
10-22-(03): Re-Appropriations: January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013
10-22-(04): Rescission: Resolution No. 2013-045, adopted June 11, 2013
10-22-(05): Contract: Lake Truck Sales and Service, Inc: Snow & Ice Package for 2014 Mack Truck: $65,975
Mr. Morley: Ms. Vaughn?
Ms. Vaughn: These were all discussed in the Finance Committee held October 15th. The contract for the Fire Department structure roof repair is the low bidder and they are satisfied with A & I Roofing – they seem to be a quality company. The Finance Committee recommended it be moved forward and it appears on the evening’s agenda as Legislation No. 10-22-(02).
Legislation No. 10-22-(03) appears on the evening’s agenda and is in regard to the re-appropriations. We worked with Mr. Slocum on them. Mr. Slocum?
Mr. Slocum: Basically there are two real big ones.
Ms. Vaughn: But nothing real significant.
Mr. Slocum: We are increasing the transfer we need to come out of the General Fund to the Bond Retirement by about $70,000. That is due to some issues we are experiencing in the stadium fund. As we said last week we anticipate collecting the money eventually from the stadium fund. If it happens that we do not collect it this year I feel pretty confident we will collect it next year. The other area is the increase in the Firefighting overtime/comp-time. We are increasing that by $25,000. We are offsetting that partially by some other reductions in firefighting costs but the increase is $17,000. And, there are some other “housekeeping” types of changes.
Ms. Vaughn: Legislation No. 10-22-(04) is a rescission and Legislation No. 10-22-(05) is a contract for a snow and ice package for a truck. The company went out of business and they did some shopping around and found Lake Truck Sales and Service for the amount of $65,975. In order to approve this legislation we have to first rescind Legislation No, 2013-045 which we approved June 11, 2013 as that is no longer available.
Mr. Slocum: We own the truck – this is for the bed and plow package.
Ms. Vaughn: The snow and ice package – when you look at almost $66,000 it seems like a lot of money for a snow and ice package. To me it looked like we were buying the whole truck.
Mr. Slocum: That is about half the truck.
Mayor Andrzejewski: We paid no money to the company that went out of business.
There were no further questions or comments.
There was no Legislation Pending.
AFSME Dental Contract
Mr. Slocum: Do we need to raise the AFSME Dental Contract?
Mrs. Cendroski: I have that Motion prepared.
There was no further Miscellaneous.
The meeting was adjourned at approximately 7:05 p.m.
