11-12-(01): Conditional Use Permit Amendment/Renewal: Chagrin Lagoons Yacht Club, Inc., 35111 Halsey Drive, Eastlake

Mr. Morley: Mr. D’Ambrosio?

Mr. D’Ambrosio: We have been waiting for them to sign the amendment and they did so. The only change was the name of the street. This is ready to appear on tonight’s agenda.

There were no further questions or comments.



There was no Legislation Pending.


Lease Agreement: City of Eastlake & Jean Chase Memorial Fund, Inc.

Mr. Morley: Mr. Slocum?

Mr. Slocum: This was discussed in Finance Committee. At that time we held it with the understanding we would confer with Jean Chase as to who would be doing the set up and take down at the Community Center. They have agreed to do it and the agreement has been so changed. We did set the agreement period to run from December 1, 2013 to December 31, 2014 with the anticipation that all future contracts after that would be on a calendar year basis. With that we request passage.

There were no further questions or comments.

Mr. Morley: Mr. Semik?

Mr. Semik: These are housekeeping items – nothing has really changed from last year with the exception that the pavement lane marking fees from Oblesby came in lower which is why we went with them. All these items are needed for next year.

Mr. Slocum: Each one of these items was competitively bid and we had the bid opening two weeks ago.

There were no further questions or comments.


Application to Participate: OPWC Improvement Project/Kalene Court

Mr. Morley: Mr. Gwydir?

Mr. Gwydir: In May we made a number of applications to the OPWC for grants for improvements in the City of Eastlake. They saw fit to award the Kalene Court project. They awarded $89,200 which is 50% of the project and the County has made a call for final applications and the authorizing legislation necessary for that application.

Mr. Morley: Our share of the cost comes out of the Road Levy.

There were no further questions or comments.


Amendment: Section 155.01 “General Administration,” subsection “b

Mr. Morley: As I campaigned I said if I took office I would change the Safety Director’s salary from $12,000 to $1. That is what we will be doing tonight. If I am appointed by Council to the position of Safety Director in January the salary will be reduced to $1. That would make a total Mayor’s salary of $60,001.

There were no further questions or comments.


Mr. Morley: Mr. Slocum?

Mr. Slocum: Regarding the medical insurance I think most members of Council are aware that we recently got our prices in from the County on the renewal. Once we received those prices we were able to competitively shop our health insurance. We believe we have a viable alternative which we have currently out for review by the various Unions in the City. I was informed tonight that the AFSME Union has accepted the change. I have not heard anything final from the Police or Fire Unions. I would like a Motion tonight authorizing us to – if we feel it is proper… we do not have to have Union approval to do it. We are trying to work with the Unions and so far things are moving positively and we hope that will be the end result. Due to the fact that the contract is over $12,000 I would need Council’s approval with a Motion to authorize us to enter into an agreement with Medical Mutual if that is the final determination. In the event that is not the final determination we would probably need to come back to Council with the County – and that is a three year plan. Those are really the only two options we have.

Mr. Morley: Mr. Licht will make the Motion during his report.

There were no further questions or comments.


The meeting was adjourned at approximately 7:06 p.m.
