Public Participation:

Tom Clemons addressed council as a representative of the Wood County             ADAMHS board in support of the board’s 1.6 mill levy renewal.  Mr. Clemons             said that this levy represents 40% of the board’s annual revenue and without it             services would be greatly reduced.  He reviewed the services that the ADAMHS             provides to the community and urged all to vote yes for its renewal.

Letters and Communications:

None

Administrative Reports:

Finance Officer: Present. Report Submitted.

Mr. Kirk reported that we have received an 11% increase in our health insurance             premium. While this is a major increase it is less than the 20% increase that he             was expecting.

Mr. Kirk reported that the village has been victimized by fraudulent checks that were passed in the Columbus area.  He is working with law enforcement and     Huntington security on the issue.  The loss may be covered by insurance. Chief           Baer described the process by which fraudulent checks are passed.

Village Administrator: Present. Report Submitted.

Ms Dettling reviewed the bidding process for the 2014 tree removal.  She reported             that the lowest bidder did not provide insurance or workers’ comp information as             required.  After the bids were opened, Ms Dettling informed the bidder, Myers             Tree Service of the deficiency.  Myers subsequently submitted proof of insurance             and workers’ comp but both policies were dated after the bid opening date.  To             that end, Ms Dettling rejected Myers’ bid.  Mr. Marcin concurred with this             decision.

Based on Ms Dettling’s recommendation, Ms Thompson made a motion to          authorize the village administrator to enter into an agreement with Ashcraft Tree     and Shrub Service for 2014 tree removal per bid specs at a cost not to exceed $ 16,050. Second by Ms Goldner.  All approved.

Clerk: Clerk Van Mooy reported that the 11-04-14 agenda would not be    prepared until 11-02-14.

Aaron Patterson returned the conversation to the finance officer’s report.  He       questioned if sufficient effort was expended in seeking health insurance quotes,         In response to his question Mr. Kirk said that we have a new plan administrator        but we are sticking with our current carrier.  Aaron Patterson said that when he        was the chair of the Finance Committee  the village did a comprehensive market            search for the best rate.  Ms Dettling discussed several cost          savings measures that            are part of the 2015 coverage.

Appointed Legal Counsel Present.

Mr. Marcin discussed draft Ordinance 14-41 that could be added to the agenda or             held for the 11-04-14 meeting.

Mayor: Present.

Mr. Julien distributed copies of a letter in support of the street levy renewal.  It   will be sent to the media for publication.

Economic and Community Development (Mr. Aaron Patterson)

No Report

Public Safety (Ms Goldner)

Ms Goldner distributed information on the 2015 EMS budget suggestions that     were a result of a brainstorming session held earlier in the day.  She said that our EMS service has improved and that we’re on the right track.  Chief Matthes      concurred. He said that without continued council support with funding that the   standard of care that is being delivered would be reduced. Members were asked to review the information in advance of the COTW.

Based on the recommendation of the Public Safety Committee, Aaron Patterson made a motion to authorize the North Baltimore Police Department to research funding opportunities to add a K9 unit to the force.  All approved except Ms Thompson who voted no.

No Report.

Public Works (Mr. Art Patterson)

Second by Aaron Patterson.  All approved.

Public Utilities (Ms Cameron)

Supt. Patterson and a representative from Jones and Henry explained the proposal             for a study to maximize the efficiency of the pumps at the treatment plant.  Due to             the reduction in flow caused by the SSP, the pumps are running inefficiently due             to their 1960’s design.

Aaron Patterson made a motion to authorize the Village Administrator to enter             into an agreement with Jones and Henry to complete a Project Cost Study for the             Headwork portion of the wastewater treatment Facility at a cost not to exceed             $16,150 per Jones and Henry             proposal dated 10-15-14 to be paid from the             wastewater professional services fund.  Second by Ms Goldner.  All approved.

  1. Holiday Reception. Council is invited to the Wood County Economic Development Commission Holiday Reception to be held on Thursday, December 4, 2104 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg.  See the attached invitation. 
  1. Economic Development 101. A save the date invitation is included with my report. I plan to attend the workshop and I encourage the Economic Development Committee of Council to attend if possible, however anyone can attend.

 

  1. Park Grant Follow-up. Attached is a letter from Wood County Park District informing the village that we received a grant for the broken spiral slide. I have followed up with the park equipment vendor to order the slide and with the County on procedure for getting the funds. 
  1. Roof Update. The prognosis for the roof was not encouraging. Mr. Meyer did a lot more caulking and sealing then he thought would be needed. He typically finds 20 to 30 places that potential leaks can occur.  He said that there were over 200 places for potential leaks on the roof.  Many areas damaged due to antenna placement and guy wires.  It appeared that little care was used when placing this equipment on the roof.  The most distressed area of the roof is in the poorly devised drain system. Water is trapped below and between layers and continues to cause problems.   I will be working with Doug Wickard on an aggressive maintenance plan for the roof until such time as we can construct a new roof.  Mr. Meyer guaranteed that he stopped the leaks, but we are on borrowed time and need to plan for replacing the roof sooner rather than later. 
  1. Plow Class. The DPW will be attending a free Snow Plowing Class in November. The class will focus on best snow plow practices in urban settings.  
  1. Office Update. To keep up with office needs, I’m looking into the possibility of using various part-time personnel that already work for the Village to help cover the phone and help-out at the counter for a few hours a week. Chris and April have stepped up to learn the Utility Billing System, which supports much needed cross-training for one of the primary functions of the office.  They were able to complete shut-offs this week and process a billing and get it in the mail.  I’m also following up with contacts at Bowling Green University and Findlay University for Student Interns.  
  1. Agenda and Minutes 8 ½ x 11 vs. 8 ½ x 14. In working with Clerk VanMooy on agenda items, we discussed the possibility of doing the agendas and minutes on 8 ½ x 11 letter size paper vs. 8 ½ x 14 legal size paper.  This would save some money on paper and copying, and it would be handy when preparing the complete agenda packet with one size paper.  We would also save money on archiving minutes on letter size paper by reducing the cost of the binding covers we currently use. I followed up with the State Achieve Office to confirm if we are required by law to archive on legal vs. letter size paper.  Janice Tallman of the Local Government Records Division emailed me; “as far as minutes and according to the Open Meetings Act, a public body can make a determination as to what medium they use to retain their minutes.  She said that there are no set guidelines as to using legal or letter size paper, but we must ensure that the method we use, makes them available for public inspection and permanent safe keeping”. 

Recommendation:  Propose that Council make a motion to use letter size paper for agendas and minutes; with the understanding that minutes will be made available for public inspection and properly archived for permanent safe keeping. 

  1. Board of Zoning Appeals. The monthly BZA meeting was held on October 23, 2014, which included a Variance Hearing. The Variance was approved and a copy of the Notice of Decision is attached to this report.

  • The accounts payable list for Oct 22 – Oct 31 is included for council review and approval on the Claims Ordinance.
  • Difference in income tax collections – 2014 vs 2013
  1. Decrease in collections: Taxes withheld from employees
  2. Decrease in collections: Taxes withheld from Businesses
  3. Decrease in collections: Estimated taxes withheld for the next filing year.
  • Collections to note:
    1. S. Brown donation to NB Police – $250.00
    2. Eagles donation to NB Police – $750.00

Note: Chief Baer has requested these amounts be added to his budget.

  • Upcoming Legislation (11/18)
    1. Clean Up Ordinance
    2. Transfer Ordinance
    3. Revenue Adjustment Ordinance
  • Ordinance Explanation:
  1. Appropriation ordinance – D.S. Brown and Eagles donation to the Police department.
  • Great Lakes EMS collections are listed as a separate
  • The 2015 budget will be presented at the 11/11 COTW and its first reading will be on 11/18. It will receive three readings prior to year end.
  • The village has signed with Benefit Strategies and Medical Mutual for the Village’s 2015 healthcare coverage with an increase of 11.87% from 2014. There have not been any changes in coverage.
  • The village has signed with PEP for property and liability insurance for coverage in 2015.
  • There is a resident whose previous employer was incorrectly withholding North Baltimore Tax from his paychecks.  The tax years span from 2008-2013.  Per CCA this is a legitimate claim and they mentioned he is due a refund.  The issue is that tax years from 2008-2010 are out of statute and can only be paid with the Village’s consent.  Years 2011-2013 will be going through the process automatically.
  1. From 2008-2013, this refund is roughly a few hundred dollars.
  1. The Income Tax Review Board has agreed to refund the entire amount from 2008-2013.
  • I have been in touch with PEP and Huntington regarding the check fraud. It appears this will be an approved claim with PEP, and we will be potentially reimbursed for the full amount.
  • During this period of transition, both April and myself were able to effectively complete utility billing procedures, and the utility bills were sent out on time. It is worth noting that April Dick has been a large part of this smooth transition – she has been a valuable asset in the operation of the administrative office.

NB Village Special Council Minutes – Jan. 28

The Village of North Baltimore met in Special Session of the Village Council on January 28, 2014, here are the approved minutes from the meeting.

VILLAGE OF NORTH BALTIMORE – SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING – JANUARY 28, 2014

MINUTES

I. Pledge of Allegiance

Mayor Julien called the meeting to order at 7:30 PM and led the Pledge of Allegiance.

II. Roll Call:

Mayor Julien-Here, Janet Goldner–Here, Aaron Patterson-Here, Leslee Thompson-Here, Bill Cameron-Here, Rich Rose, Art Patterson—Here, Clerk Richard Van Mooy-Here, Makayla Rein—Student Representative–Present.

III. New Business/Legislation

Ms Goldner made a motion that Resolution 01-14 be read by number and title only for the first reading, dispense with the second and third readings, suspend the rules and declare an emergency. Second by Mr. Patterson.

Before the vote discussion was held about the resolution on the table as well as other options for financing the EMS.

Mr. Patterson contended that since a motion and a second were made on Resolution 01-14 that no other items could be discussed. Mayor Julien said that was not the case and all comments relating to EMS were appropriate at this time.

Ms Goldner suggested that council may consider putting the street levy renewal rather than an EMS levy before the voters in May. This would allow the Safety Committee to further investigate options for EMS service, to see if the billing service is able to increase receivables and to work with the Wood County Port Authority on the Southwood study.

Mr. Cameron, in response to an inquiry from Ms Goldner, said that he had invited Port Authority representative to the 01-27-14 town meeting. He said that the local administration is not keeping up with the Port Authority activities and they are not keeping council informed of same.

Ms Thompson said that we all agreed that there is a problem with the EMS but that we don’t have enough information to propose a solution.

Mr. Van Mooy reviewed the steps that council needs to follow to put either an income tax and a property tax or both on the May ballot.

A discussion of EMS billing followed. It was concluded that even if we have good estimates on possible collection through Great Lakes, we won’t have actual figures for a couple of months.

Ms Thompson asked if any discussions had been held with Henry Township regarding EMS service. Ms Goldner said that she had informal discussion with one of the trustees and that she would have more formal discussion as time went along.

Mr. Julien voices his support of putting up the street levy in May and getting a better handle on the EMS before asking the voters to approve a tax in November.

Mr. Patterson asked rhetorically, if there is no immediate funding will the EMS be forced to close.

Ms Thompson suggested that we work with the Port Authority/Southwood to put together a viable package of EMS services.

Ms Thompson congratulated Ms Goldner for doing an excellent job with the EMS situation. All members joined Ms Thompson in congratulating Ms Goldner.

Mr. Patterson also congratulated members of the EMS and thanked them for their service to the community. He said that council is dealing with citizens’ lives and that this is the most important decision that council has to make.

Mr. Patterson reminded all that we will continue to soft bill our residents.

Mr. Julien called a recess at 8:30 PM to allow Clerk Van Mooy to locate needed documentation to request auditors’ certification for the street levy renewal.

Mr. Julien called the meeting back to order at 8:45 PM.

Ms Goldner amended her motion as follows: Resolution 01-14 be read by number and title only for the second reading, dispense with the third reading, suspend the rules and declare an emergency. Mr. Patterson reiterated his second of the motion as amended.
