Those who were in attendance from the Administration were Mayor Morley, Finance Director Slocum, Law Director Klammer, and I believe Fire Chief Whittington. We discussed the reappropriations in which Mr. Slocum was kind enough to explain so that I didn’t have too and after a brief discussion we have decided to move forward with this piece of legislation. Then we discussed the changes to the Income Tax Chapter 184. It is very lengthy and very structured. I would like to point out the fact that there were some residents at that meeting which was very important. They brought something to our attention that we weren’t aware of. It is important that if you care about the City that you start coming to these meetings so that you know what is going on. Thank you Ms. Luczywo. It will appear on tonight’s agenda and I will schedule a meeting for next Tuesday if it is okay with everyone for six o’clock followed by an Ordinance Committee Meeting.


Mr. Hoefle: Ours will follow yours Ms. Vaughn.


Ms. Vaughn: That concludes my report and I am open for questions.

Mr. D’Ambrosio: Mayor Morley?


Mayor Morley: Again First Energy will be making all of the notifications…


Mr. Licht: Thank you Mayor Morley.


                             Mr. D’Ambrosio: Does anyone else form Council have anything that they would like to report?


                              RECOGNITION OF THE PUBLIC

                              Mr. D’Ambrosio recognized the public input at this time; he reminded the speakers that there is a 3-minute limit for their comments; all comments are to be directed to the Chair and not include any personalities or individuals.


                             Bob Spangenberg, 1034 Eastlake Drive, Eastlake

                             Mr. Spangenberg: I have just a couple of quick things that I would like to talk about. First of all I do not know how you guys are going to vote on this but I am against Issue 3 for legalizing the use of marijuana. The reason for it is because we have a big heroin problem and now they want to do something with marijuana. I know that they are talking about medical marijuana but I think that it would be a bad idea and that is just my opinion. I don’t know if we can do anything about this but there is a house on my street which is Eastlake Drive in which I tried to find the address but the only thing that it says is Puppy Reality. My concern is that the roof on the garage is leaning and it looks as if it is ready to fall down. I heard that someone went into the house and that they were looking to buy it. They said that there is a lot of mold and that it would take a lot of work. I don’t know what can be done about it but I just think that it is an eye sour. I try to keep my yard up and looking nice. Mayor Bonde in Willowick wanted to do something with Eastlake North High School and he wanted to make it Willowick Eastlake North High School. I am a graduate of North High therefore I would rather leave it Eastlake North High. That is just my opinion and other people can have their own opinions and that is all that I have to say.


                             Mr. D’Ambrosio: Thank you Mr. Spanchber. From your house where is that house with the Puppy Reality sign?


                             Mr. Spangenberg: It is about five houses up.


                             Mr. D’Ambrosio: Is it on the same side of the street?


                             Mr. Spangenberg: On the same side of the street.


                               Mr. D’Ambrosio: We will see if we can get an address and maybe we could look into that.


                            Mr. Spangenberg: Ok. Yeah it just looks bad and you know one house looks bad enough.


                              There was no one else who wished to speak.

Mayor Morley: Thank you, Mr. President. Welcome everyone to this evening’s meeting. It has been an interesting day in the City of Eastlake. It has been a long day for our safety forces in our City today. We have been at fires since three a.m. this morning where we were present at along with the police department. There was also another fire this afternoon in the same area. Again with our mutual aide I would like to thank Willowick, Willoughby, Kirtland, and Wickliffe did and EMS run while we were on the scene at three a.m. this morning. To see our safety forces work together and for everything that they do every day and also for everything that our surrounding communities do with the mutual aid to help out. Our police department was out in full force this morning. The Chief had a couple of interesting ones this afternoon that he was at. Since the Wal-Mart entrance has opened a couple of weeks ago we have had some complaints and we have contacted Wal-Mart again. The agreement that I read at the last Council Meeting asked that the agreement be enacted and I have asked them to contact our City Engineer to pick a drive study over there. Just to let everyone know in the audience that people are always saying well just put a light up and it’s not just put a light up. We have to do the study and the State of Ohio has to agree to the lights and set it as a State Route. So we are playing phone tag with the corporate office at Wal-Mart today. Hopefully I will talk with them today and I have also sent out a few emails. Finally for those that live in the Willowick Drive area you will see that the slab replacement has started finally and we hope to get that done in about a month to a month and a half.


Mr. Gwydir: Yes sir.


Mayor Morley: You may have seen some of our people out on the weekends and in the evenings repairing the catch basins. Since we’ve joined the StormWater …with the County we’ve had more money that goes into that account. The County will be reimbursing us just as if we would contract in other jobs. All those jobs where they are on over time they are going to be paid through the StormWater Fund that we joined through the County. Fox 8 News was here a couple of days ago with our Women’s Club to do the Pledge of Allegiance. Fox News has been doing the Pledge of Allegiance the last few months in the morning. I think that it will be some time in June and I was out there with them. Again thanks to the Women’s Club for the things that they do for the community. I got a letter of resignation from Mr. Komarjanski that he has to resign from the Civil Service position as of October 31, 2015. This is due to the new rule on the retirement system in regards to the healthcare. I will check with Mrs. Simons to see whose choice it is this time. I think that we should wait to fill the position until the beginning of the year. The Chief’s have sat down with Civil Service and they have updated their lists. We have a promotional exam that is coming up and the Chief along with me and the group are going to meet with them after the interviews for that promotion. The Chief is starting interviews and background checks to replace Detective Bowersock. That is where we are on that and I am open for questions.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Any questions for the Mayor? Mr. Hoefle?


Mr. Hoefle: Mr. Mayor with the…on 337th Street into Wal-Mart do you know how much longer it will be on that? I think that a couple of weeks ago you said that it would be like a two week project.


Mayor Morley: They said that it would be a two to three week project. Have you been over there Mr. Gwydir or has Mr. Menn been looking at that?


Mr. Gwydir: I have not been over there.


Mayor Morley: I will check with Mr. Menn and let you know.


Mr. Hoefle: Thank you.


There were no further questions of Mayor Morley


FIRE CHIEF – Ted Whittington

Chief Whittington: Thank you Mr. President. Like the Mayor has stated we have been busy for most of the afternoon and also early this morning. The fires did occur real close in proximity. After our investigators Chief Reik and some of the Police Department personnel investigated both of them and found that they are not related. The causes of both of the fires were accidental and that there was no malicious intent. I know that they were close but as far as the timing goes it is odd because they were right across the street from each other. We feel pretty confident based on interviewing witnesses and people that were involved that there was no relationship between the two fires. If you get any calls I will most certainly be able to answer any questions to the best of my ability and rest assured that I think that we are good for now. I am open for questions.


There were no further questions of Chief Whittington.



Mr. Rubertino: Good evening everybody there are just a few things. The Mayor did mention about the catch basins and we have done about fourteen of them. There were major repairs on them and I am talking from four feet to about fifteen feet and it consisted of totally rebuilding the catch basins which go all the way up to the top along with setting of the new concrete. We have really made a substantial move it that respect. We have also done some asphalt repairs on Parkway Drive and Beachpark Ave. Also with the catch basins we have about two more weeks and we will have two groups of two out there getting them done after that we will be attacking the pothole situation. We are going to try and get as many done as well as to get ahead of them before winter comes. We are preparing the plow trucks. We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize Mr. Cognettie he is an Eastlake resident who volunteered his time as well as supplied the paint and materials to paint the Surfside Pool building along with all of the playground equipment. It was all of his time along with his equipment and money. I would like to recognize him for going out of his way to help out. Other than that I am open for questions.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Any questions for Mr. Rubertino? Mr. Licht?


Mr. Licht: You had mentioned with the catch basins that you had about another two weeks or so worth of work but I also remember hearing earlier that the majority of it or all of the over time is being paid. Does that mean that during the regular work hours that the City of Eastlake is paying that?


Mayor Morley: We are handing it as a job like if we are contracting it. Say we hire Jeff Licht Contractor to do the catch basins we are handing…Mr. Slocum’s done a good job at making Excel spreadsheets as to how much more the mortar is along with the blocks and the grates. We are handing them all over to StormWater because we were told to do that.


Mr. Licht: That is being done on the regular work days.


Mayor Morley: The regular work days. The way that we go about the over time for the guys and the crews that we have we can’t keep them on the job. We weren’t like you don’t want water right? They were on that job for four weeks because they have to keep pulling them off during the day to do other things. Mr. Rubertino and I came up with…and I talked to the County about the StormWater fees to cover this and that is how we came up with doing this.


Mr. Licht: Ok.


Mr. Slocum: Specifically though so that some of the work is being done on their regular city time and we are billing that back to the County at a straight time rate. When we recover those dollars they are going to go to a different place. There are also overtime hours which is above and beyond and it is a part of the reappropriation that we just made tonight that is going to allow us to book all of this. It is not all straight time and it is not all over time either.


Mr. Licht: But it’s all being reimbursed?


Mr. Slocum: It’s all being reimbursed.


Mr. Licht: Ok and thank you.


Mr. Rubertino: Could I just add…


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Sure.


Mr. Rubertino: When I say that we are going to be stopping in November that’s at the most critical catch basins. There are probably one hundred more in the City that are at that point to where in the Spring time we are going to have to go back out and by then I am sure that some of those are going to be critical as well. Throughout the City in almost every single road almost every single catch basin is collapsing. That is something that is going to be an ongoing thing. I couldn’t even give you an estimated time frame but it is probably going to be at least two or three years to get every catch basin that we see at this point caught up.


Mr. Licht: I guess that my point is and just so the residents understand is that this agreement that we went into with them is that we wouldn’t have been able to do this with the previous amount of money that we had in the account. Correct me if I’m wrong but we are only raising about $30,000 to $40,000 a year.


Mr. Slocum: Right.


Mr. Licht: I’m glad to hear that we are getting reimbursed and that it’s coming form that so thank you.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Mr. Slocum?


Mr. Slocum: Just one other commentary with that is that we are all starting to get a little feedback about the fact as to why aren’t we picking up the leaves. Well instead of picking up the leaves we are rebuilding these storm sewers which are far more important for the continued existence in this City. We don’t have the people that we had from two years ago but even with the reduced people we are making more progress with these storm sewers that has been made in the five years that I’ve been back.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: We’re going to have this funding in place for next year as far as for the catch basins?


Mr. Slocum: Yes.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: How far out do we know?


Mr. Slocum: Right now we are in a…


Mayor Morley: Don’t forget that this year they estimated that we pull in about six hundred and sixty thousand dollars. They want to give us seventy percent this year at five hundred thousand dollars and we aren’t even close to spending it obviously. The project that Mr. Gwydir had set up for doing the hammering and the different things on Freed Drive and Bertha Court. You guys have what we sent over and that was about $220,000.00. We’re not going to come close but obviously our goal is to build it up so that we can do some of the bigger programs that we talked about for the City. We are just going to continue to do this as long as the time permits. Once it snows that is all that the guys will be doing.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Ms. Vaughn?


Ms. Vaughn: Just for the records and so it’s on tonight’s minutes would you or Mr. Gwydir please review the time frame for Willowick Drive and the cameraing that I talked to you privately about it. I have been asked by the residents and they just want to know when it’s coming. Willowick Drive has been marked off and we know it is coming but they don’t know when. So if one of you two could speak for the record and let us know toss a coin I don’t care.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Mr. Gwydir you can do that at the end of your report.


Ms. Vaughn: Ok.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Anything else for Mr. Rubertino? Chief Reik?


Chief Reik: Would I be out of line to extend an invitation to the gentleman that did all the work. Maybe at a Council Meeting we could present him with something.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Absolutely that would be great.


Chief Reik: If we have a meeting during that day maybe give him some recognition even though that it doesn’t appear that he is looking for it.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: You got his contact information?


Mr. Rubertino: I have his name and I could probably get his contact information and he did want recognition.


Mayor Morley: I can look it up. I actually put it in a Gazette article that I did about three months ago or whenever he did it. I have it and it is in one of my Gazette article’s because I put his phone number in and the name of his company.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: See if he wants to come to a meeting and just let us know ahead of time we could recognize him.


There were no further questions of Mr. Rubertino.



Mr. Gwydir: Thank you Mr. President and members of Council and Mayor. Per Ms. Vaughn’s request I will start with Willowick Drive and the construction on that is under way. We are working on the north bound lanes and we are starting on the south end and heading north. The first sets of slabs were hammered out and we are set up for concrete pours and that will continue on until at least the middle of December. As far as cleaning and televising the draft specs were placed on my desk today by the designer and I will be reviewing those and I will be making a request sometime between now and the next Council meeting for the Mayor to bid on that. Along with making sure that we have the funding from the County before we move forward. On the matter of StormWater if you recall we had a meeting and I believe it was back in February or March were there is a road map laid out on how we intend on how to attack the larger storm water issues that the City has been encountering. Now that there are funds available to do so we are proceeding along with that in a rather methodical way. As well as Mr. Rubertino doing the StormWater related items which are ancillary to all of the other things. The availability of this StormWater money and the fact that the City joined this finally allows us to make some substantial steps towards resolving storm water issues in Eastlake.


Ms. Vaughn: Thank you.


Mr. Gwydir: With that I am open for questions.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Are there any questions for Mr. Gwydir?


Ms. Vaughn: Just for the record I talked with Mr. Gwydir before the meeting and the cameraing can be done even though there is snow.


Mr. Gwydir: That is correct.


Ms. Vaughn: I told the residents earlier in the year that it was going to happen and they keep saying when winter is coming. You were kind enough to let me know that you don’t have to do it in the summer time and that these cameras work even when it is snowing.


Mr. Gwydir: Yes Ms. Vaughn.


Ms. Vaughn: Thank you.


There were no questions of Mr. Gwydir.



Mr. Slocum: Thank you Mr. President. The only thing that I need to report and just so that it goes on the record is that since I saw the article relating to Willoughby Hills over the weekend that they got the Auditor’s Certificate.


Ms. Vaughn: We get that every year.


Mr. Slocum: The City of Eastlake also received a certificate within the last couple of weeks for our last audit. We also received one on our last audit cycle previously to that. I am very happy and proud of what we have been able to accomplish and I just wanted to go on record with that. With that I am open for questions.


There were no questions of Mr. Slocum.



Chief Reik: Thank you and I would like to apologize for missing the last few meetings I had a couple of different events planned that didn’t coincide with the Council meeting but sometimes it just works out. We have hired a new dispatcher because Mrs. DeLisle left after fifteen years in records and she is now living in Wisconsin and doing well. Ms. Solymosi has been a dispatcher for about nineteen or twenty will be moving into the records position. We have hired a new dispatcher to fill Ms. Solymosi’s spot and once the new girl is trained that is when the transition will take place. Even though Sunday is the first day of the pay period the new girl’s first day will be on Monday with the training program. She does not have any direct experience but we feel pretty comfortable with her and her name is Shana McCoy. She will be a new face that you will see on the complex in the next couple of weeks. Along with the Fire Department we have been busy and it is an honor to work with Chief Whittington and the Fire Department. As crazy as things get we have a good relationship to be able to count on each other. We have had some major incidents the past couple of months where we have had two aggravated robberies again both were in the same general area. We are looking in a lot of different suspects we do not have a lot of good identification. With camera, the time of the day and the location at where they happened at. A lot of times with breaking other cases you will get information because typically people will talk about the things that they do. They are not off of the radar and I know that it is concerning for the residents but it’s unfortunate. The Mayor and I were talking and it’s not just Eastlake and anyone who reads the paper or is on Facebook has seen that in other departments that we are all experiencing things and there are a lot of things contribute to it. However, I think that we are doing a pretty good job with the group that we have and that we are doing as well as we can. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions we are definitely open to them and feel free to contact me and I am open for questions.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Are there any questions for Chief Reik? Chief Reik there is no need to apologize and when you don’t see a director here nine out ten times they contact me ahead of time. Your absents were excused and the other department heads let me know when they are not going to be here. Thank you and we miss you.


Ms. Vaughn: We miss him anyway.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: We miss you terribly.


Chief Reik: That’s the first time that I’ve talked longer than Chief Whittington.


Mr. D’Ambrosio: Yes it is.


Mr. Klammer: Please note that.


There were no further questions of Chief Reik.



Mr. Menn was absent and excused.


There were no questions of Mr. Menn.


LAW DIRECTOR – Randy Klammer

Mr. Klammer: Thank you Mr. President, members of Council, and Mayor. I just wanted to thank Mrs. Simons for her help…it turned out that Walter Drane had screwed up in reprinting one of our ordinances online and it shifted everything over a column. Mr. Menn and I had an issue with it and Mrs. Simons hunted it down and helped us find out where it happened and how. She helped Walter Drane in straightening it out for us and I just wanted to thank her for that. I am going back and forth with CEI about getting Mr. Gwydir his affidavit so that he can get his ODNR to get the Submerged Land Lease. Other than that I am open for questions.  


There were no further questions of Mr. Klammer.



The meeting was adjourned at approximately 7:43 p.m.
