FIRST READINGS:

a. Appropriation Ordinance: The village received a grant from the county to replace the slide at the playground. This ordinance adds these proceeds to the park budget. It is an emergency because the Village has accepted delivery on the slide, and the vendor invoice has been received. This appropriation matches the amount of grant funds received.

c. Appropriation Ordinance: One of the ambulances (982) will be requiring a number of repairs. Included is a service quote from Reineke to perform the various repairs. This ordinance will add the cost of the repairs to the EMS budget. It is an emergency because these repairs need to be complete to continue providing quality EMS services to the village.

SECOND READINGS

d. Appropriation Ordinance 2015-13: Funding to support a part-time EMS department from 7/1/15-12/31/15.

These funds are being expended from the general fund carryover.

e. Appropriation Ordinance 2015-14: The village received a reimbursement check for hazmat services provided on route 75. Per fire chief, he would like these funds to be added back into his 2015 budget. The revenue amount is $577.79. The appropriation is in the same amount.

  • May 6th – Laborer Position 2 Interviews
  • May 6th – Noah Pelton- Introduce Scout Project
  • May 11th – Charles Harris-Auditor
  • May 11th – Tree Commission Meeting 
  1. Part-time Employee. Staff is requesting support to hire a part-time employee for one month.  DPW could use a PT employee to keep up with mowing until the new employee is hired.  Brandon Conine will be working 3rd shift for ODOT and may be interested in working or Doug Wickard has a few people that would be interested in working on a part-time temporary basis.

Proposed Motion:  Council authorized Doug Wickward to hire a part-time temporary employee for the month of May at the starting rate of $8.10/hour.

  1. Laborer Position. We received 8 applications for the Laborer Position in the Department of Public Works and 4 interviews have been scheduled with North Baltimore residents.  Doug Wickard and I hope to have a recommendation for the hire ready by the end of this week and request that Council approve a special meeting before the COTW on May 12, 2015 to consider this item. 

Proposed Motion:  Set a special Council Meeting for May 12, 2015 at 5:45 p.m. prior to the Committee of Whole. 

  1. ADA Doors –CDBG Project Update. Dave Steiner, Wood County Planning conducted a pre-construction meeting at the Village on May 1, 2015.  The contractor will be on site the week of May 4th to install the doors, which will require approximately 2-days work.  The sidewalk and parking area improvements will be completed the week of May 11, 2015 with temporary and intermittent staff and customer parking interruptions.  Let me know if anyone needs additional information about this project; since it was November 2014 that you last received an update. 
  1. Qtly Planning & Zoning Report. Included for your review is the Planning & Zoning Report for the first quarter of 2015.  Please contact me if you have any questions. 
  1. Park Slide Install. The park play equipment slide was received on 4-28-2015 and DPW will be installing the slide after they remove the foundation of the current slide.  They also need to further study the installation requirements for the new slide to guarantee proper installation for warranty purposes.  The invoice will be paid after the slide is installed. 
  1. Bank Service Fees. The review of bank service fees was an exercise Chris and I completed to make sure Huntington Bank was in line with fees being charged by other banks.  Chris finalized the review and included in his report a comparison.  It wasn’t our intent to bid service fees, which we understand the 15% bid/quote advantage for local businesses.  It was our intent to place a higher (more than 15% target) on any recommendation that we would make to change banks.  There are other considerations that influence this decision; for example the hassle of changing banks, due to transition costs and issues with new bank account numbers and printing new checks.  The level of savings must also offset the impact on the local economy, which is a subjective aspect to quantify.  Chris and I are considering options with Huntington to improve the Village’s position.
  1. Downtown Parking.  DPW completed the new alignment for the downtown parking stalls and the feedback so far has been positive.  This alignment was intended to be a trial, which allows the village to make the determination when Main Street is paved and new pavement markings installed to continue this alignment on a permanently.
  1. Tree City Award Ceremony.  The Village of North Baltimore received our 20th Tree City Award on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.     
  1. Bus Service Inquiry. A request was made to determine interest in a bus service from Detroit to Columbus.  The Motor Coach company is already providing service from Detroit to Columbus on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Mondays with stops in Tiffin (2 locations), Sidney and Piqua.  They are in discussions for a stop at the Petro Station, but wanted to determine interest in adding the NB stop to the printed schedule before they finalized anything with Petro.  There is no cost to the Village as a recognized stop. This new bus service was simply looking for the community’s level of interest.

NB Village Council Minutes – April 21

VILLAGE OF NORTH BALTIMORE COUNCIL MEETING – APRIL 21, 2015

MINUTES

[gview file=”https://www.thenbxpress.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Council-Minutes-04-21-15.pdf”]

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 Mike Julien-Here, Leslee Thompson-Here, Aaron Patterson-Here,
Janet Goldner-Here, Bill Cameron-Here, Rich Rose-Here, Art Patterson—
Here, Clerk Richard Van Mooy-Here, Student Representative Hank Matthes—Here.
III. Approval of the Minutes:

Motion by Aaron Patterson to approve the minutes of the 04-07-15 meeting. Second by Ms Goldner. All approved.

IV. Public Participation:

Mark Wolford speaking on behalf of the Mid County Ambulance district addressed council about the number of mutual aid runs that their department makes to assist North Baltimore EMS. Thus far in 2015 they have been called 17 times. By answering our calls it takes their unit out of the service area. Mr. Wolford offered to assist NB in any way that they can to get our EMS on a more dependable footing. Mr. Julien thanked Mr. Wolford for his offer of assistance and his candor. Aaron Patterson asked for the dates and time of the mutual aid calls. Many of them occurred during the time that we are staffed with a paid EMS but a second crew member is not available so mutual aid must be called for transport.

V. Letters and Communications:

None

VI. Administrative Reports:

Finance Officer: Present. Report Submitted

Mr. Cameron asked if the current EMS funding runs through the end of May or the end of June. He was told the end of June.

Village Administrator: Present. Report Submitted.

Ms Dettling reported that our water system was reviewed as part of its tri annual inspection. The inspector praised the operations and the proactive work that is being done to prevent algae in the reservoir.

Ms Dettling reported that the restriping of the downtown parking is in progress.

Ms Dettling reported that the recent high winds caused some tree damage and that the Tree Commission’s storm damage account may be depleted. Discussion turned to a tree on a foreclosed property near Powell School that lost a large limb. No conclusion was reached.

Ms Dettling reminded all members that they should cc the clerk with all e-mails as required by the sunshine law.

Ms Dettling suggested that council meet three times in June, July and August instead of the current two. Mr. Van Mooy said that he would not be present for the additional meetings.

Based on Ms Dettling’s recommendation, Ms Goldner made a motion to authorize the Village Administrator to finalize the Loan/Grant Agreement for the CF Loan/Grant program to purchase a Police Patrol Vehicle and an EMS Response Vehicle. The motion died for lack of a second.

In the discussion before the mayor asked for a second, questions were raised about the level of commitment required of the village, the need to purchase two vehicles, the source of funding for the village’s share of the purchase. Amid speculation and discussion, no conclusions were reached on these items. Ms Dettling pointed out that the motion only authorizes the administrator to continue with the paperwork. Aaron Patterson said that since council had already done so, this motion must be for a greater commitment. Mr. Cameron suggested that since we may not even have an EMS in a few months that we should not purchase a vehicle for that service. Mr. Kirk and Ms Dettling will research and report.

Clerk: Present. No Report

Appointed Legal Counsel: Present. No Report.

Mayor: Present.

Mr. Julien said that the alert notification is ready to be rolled out at the upcoming public safety meetings.

Mr. Julien circulated a draft letter to Cong. Latta and asked all members to sign.

VII. Standing Committees:

Economic and Community Development (Mr. Aaron Patterson)

No Report.

Public Safety (Ms Goldner)

Ms Goldner announced that three Public Safety meetings are scheduled as follows: 04-30-15 7:00 PM at the fire hall, 05-16 10:00 AM at the fire hall with the media invited with hot dogs for one and all and 05-16-15 7:00 PM at the library. Three items will be discussed: 1) The switch to 911 for all fire and EMS service, 2) The emergency notification system and 3) Council’s plan to finance EMS service. Mr. Van Mooy has made arrangements for the library to be open and staffed after closing to accommodate those wishing to use public computers to sign up for the notification system.

Discussion turned to EMS funding and Ms Goldner reported that based on discussions at the last three Public Safety meetings that the plan is for council to eliminate the income tax reciprocity forgiveness through the ordinance process. In the ordinance it will state that all funds raised through the reciprocity will be earmarked for EMS. The first reading of that ordinance will be on the 05-05-15 agenda with the next two readings following with adoption planned for the 06- 02-15 meeting. It is possible that a citizens’ referendum on the tax issue may be filed so the planned readings will give the citizens time to circulate a petition so that it may be placed on the November ballot.

Ms Goldner estimated that the reciprocity will generate $190,000 which when added to the anticipated $90,000 in collections and the customary general fund contribution of $90,000 that we will be short about $50,000 needed to staff the EMS at the mid-level. The mid-level would still be a mix of paid staff and volunteers but, with a greater number of paid staff, there will be greater flexibility of assignments and hours on duty. She also said that if a referendum is on the ballot that council must mount a campaign to show the citizens that need for the additional funds that will be earmarked exclusively for EMS purposes.

Mr. Cameron asked about the possible $50,000 shortfall. Mr. Van Mooy responded that additional staff will mean additional runs being completed which will lead to additional revenues. In the meantime passage of Ordinance 2015-13 will secure funding for our current operations and staffing through 2015.

Along with the ordinance process we will continue to participate in the Southwood study which could lead to a larger EMS district or paid contracts for service or other options yet to be considered.

Aaron Patterson asked what the EMS is doing to alleviate the staffing issue. Chief Matthes said that the EMS is doing three things right now: 1) They are actively seeking new members. It was pointed out that at all three public meetings that the EMS will have a recruiting table staffed with volunteers. 2) New members training is being provided locally so that the recruits don’t have to drive to another site for the training and 3) The revised by laws recently approved by council requires member participation.

Mr. Cameron asked for an update on the drug dog. Referred to COTW.

Personnel, Policy and Ordinance Review (Mr. Rose)

No Report.

Public Works (Mr. Art Patterson)

No Report.

Mr. Van Mooy reported that the combine Lars Larsen Dedication/Arbor Day ceremonies held on Saturday went very well. He complimented Ms Goldner for spear heading the ceremonies.

Public Utilities (Ms Cameron)

Mr. Cameron reported that some of the storm sewers will need to be slip lined. Since they are large pipes the cost could be substantial. Estimates are being prepared.

Mr. Cameron said that the next Headworks meeting is 04-23-15.

Finance and Technology (Ms Thompson)

Based on the recommendation of the Finance Committee, Ms Thompson made a motion that all hiring recommendations will be accompanied by a written recommendation from the appropriate supervisor on a form designed by the Village Administrator. The recommendation will include the new hire’s name, job title, effective employment date, placement on the compensation plan (if applicable) and the rate of pay. Additionally, this requirement is to be added to the village policy manual. Second by Ms Goldner. All approved.
