IV. Public Participation:

None

V. Letters and Communications:

Aaron Patterson reported that he received thanks from Chris Bates for the assistance from the police and street department regarding the closing of W. Broadway during the recent factory demolition. Mr. Cameron asked how long the street would be closed. Chief Baer said that the EPA requires the street to be closed until all demolition is completed. Ms Dettling will send a notice to the media announcing what could be a lengthy street closing.

VI. Administrative Reports:

Finance Officer: Absent. Excused due to illness.

Ms Goldner asked that the EMS report include the money collected only in 2015 and Mr. Cameron and Aaron Patterson asked for greater clarification as to the date of the run and when it is collected.

In reference to Officer Kirk’s forecast of a short fall in the street lighting account, Ms Goldner asked if the lights could be converted to LED. Clerk Van Mooy said that he is familiar with another community that is in process of switching and that it is quite expensive because the entire fixture’s internals must be replaced.

Aaron Patterson questioned Officer Kirk’s recommendation that we increase the 821 street cleaning account. Referred to Officer Kirk. Ms Dettling said that Officer Kirk’s report is designed so that we can watch for trends in spending and revenues.

EMS Chief: Present. Report Submitted.

Aaron Patterson asked why there are members on the squad that do not make runs. Chief Matthes said that he was working with those individuals in an effort to get them to either take runs or leave the department. Ms Goldner told the chief that he has the full support of council should he decide to remove the non participants from the roster.

Chief Mathis announced a power cot demonstration to be held at the EMS hall on 02-09-15 at 8:00 PM.

Aaron Patterson expressed concern over the number of missed runs and stated that the EMS is going backwards. Chief Matthes explained several of the missed runs. Aaron Patterson asked why a citizen would support the EMS when we miss so many runs yet have so many volunteers on the roster.

Based on Chief Matthes’ recommendation, Aaron Patterson made a motion to appoint Ryan Clark as an EMS volunteer. Second by Ms Goldner. All approved.

Fire Chief: Present. Report Submitted.

Chief Francisco said that January was the busiest month in memory. He also pointed out that many of his members run with EMS and that a number of the calls for service are joint calls with EMS and that frequently the fire member will drive the EMS so that both EMS personnel can be in the back of the rig attending to the transport.

Audience member Bonne Knaggs asked why the fire runs with EMS. She was told that is in our SOP and that EMS can always call for additional manpower if needed.

Police Chief: Present. Report Submitted.

Chief Baer distributed a bid list for a new cruiser. Council decided not to make the purchase at this meeting. Rather, Andy Sterling from USDA will be invited to the COTW to explain the USDA’s rebate financing program. Based on that information, council may take action on the cruiser purchase at the 02-17-15 meeting.

Ms Thompson Asked why so many calls were listed as “other” in the report. Chief Baer said that in many cases the computer dispatch labels the call as “other” since not all police calls are what most people considered typical law enforcement calls for assistance.

Village Administrator: Present. Report submitted.

Ms Dettling reviewed possible revisions to the agreement with Northeast Water and Sewer. There is a need to act quickly on this as Northwest is an eager customer for some of our sewer capacity. The supporting resolution will be on the 02-17-15 agenda.

Ms Dettling reported that six interviews for the treatment operator are scheduled.

Ms Dettling reviewed her interpretation of the USDA grant program.

Ms Dettling reviewed the final portions of the 2014 tree removal project. Two trees that were to be cut down were only trimmed due to the encroachment of power lines. These will be addressed in the spring.

Mr. Cameron asked for clarification on the timeline for a building to be declared dangerous. He expressed concern over the recent arson destroyed home.

Mr. Cameron expressed concern over the lack of enforcement of our sidewalk clearing ordinance and the downtown parking particularly after a snow. Both issues and parking signage referred to COTW.

Ms Dettling suggested that illegally parked cars be ticketed. She offered to see to it that the police department takes such action and that parking enforcement be part of the chief’s evaluation. There was no response to her suggestion.

Aaron Patterson called for parallel parking to be required downtown until all snow is removed from the center of the street. He also suggested that when we do the revitalization that the sidewalks be narrowed.

Mr. Cameron asked Ms Dettling if she was aware that the Safe Routes to School grant application deadline was fast approaching. Referred to North Baltimore Schools.

Clerk: Present. No report.

Appointed Legal Counsel: Absent. Excused.

Mayor: Present.

Mer. Julien said that he and Ms Dettling were working on streamlining our communications systems and that he would have a report at COTW. Aaron Patterson said that the $20,000 that we spent with Black Box was supposed to dramatically reduce our communications costs. Mr. Julien pointed out that Black Box installed a new phone system but did not address usage. He asked Aaron Patterson to wait for the report.

Mr. Cameron made a motion that the mayor send a letter of best wishes to Toledo Mayor Collins and condolences for the death of an on duty police officer. Second by Ms Thompson. All approved.

W. C. Distribution first half manufactured home tax

Michael Sibbersen, Wood County Auditor, announced the distribution of the year’s first half manufactured home tax.

Michael Sibbersen, Wood County Auditor, announced the distribution of the year’s first half manufactured home tax.

In addition to the collected taxes, Wood County subdivisions will share in homestead and rollback reimbursements from the State of Ohio of approximately $163,000. This money together with an equal second half reimbursement will be distributed following the August manufactured home settlement. The Homestead Exemption is a benefit for those 65 years of age or older OR permanently disabled persons who own their home and reside there as their principal place of residence. The applicants Ohio adjusted gross income cannot exceed $31,000 for tax year 2014. Mr. Sibbersen urges those who think they might qualify to contact the Auditor’s office at (419) 354-1925 or from Northern Wood County 1-866-860-4140, extension 1925.

There are 3,863 registered manufactured homes generating a tax of $391,179.85.

That tax is disbursed to the political subdivisions as follows:

Wood County first half taxes 2

 

 

___________________________Wood County first half taxes 1

A change in Ohio law effective since January 1, 2000 gives existing manufactured home owners a choice of continuing to be taxed on a ten year depreciating value scale as personal property or, to be taxed “like” real estate using an appraised market value. The law further provided that all manufactured homes that change hands after that date must be taxed at the appraised method.

  1. NWWSD Update. Andy Patterson, Bill Cameron and I met with Jerry Greiner and Tom Stalter on January 20th, at their request to review sanitary sewer projects that they would like to evaluate to determine if there’s an opportunity to send flow to NB Wastewater Treatment Facility.   One of the first things we need to do is update the 2007Coopertive Agreement the parties entered into.  In 2007 the Village did NOT have sewer capacity, however today with the successful completion of the Sewer Separation Project there is treatment capacity at the WWTP.  A copy of a draft Cooperative Agreement is attached to my report for your review.  We need to confirm if there are any other changes that need to be made besides Section Three Sanitary Sewer.  Note item 3 in that section references the Area Water Quality Management Plan or 208.  This document is updated every two years and it is currently being updated. I’ll include a copy of the most current 208 with the final Agreement.  At this time, we’ve not heard back from NWWSD with additional details.
  1. Plant Operator Selection Process.  Andy Patterson and I reviewed 20 applications with this first round of applications received.  We found 5 applicants that we want to bring in for an interview and I’ll be setting up the interviews the week of February 2ndand 9th.  We will continue to accept applications until the positions are filled.
  1. Rural Development USDA Community Facility Funding. I met with Andrew Sterling from USDA to discuss the funding opportunity that provides a 30% grant for community facility, equipment, and vehicles.  I recommend that the Finance Committee get together to research this further and work out details for how the Village might leverage our fund balances or restricted Capital Improvement dollars to take advantage of grant dollars.  Andy Sterling from USDA agreed to attend a Committee meeting to help get us going in the right direction.
  1. Railroad Overpass Stakeholder Meeting. REMINDER AND INVITE UPDATE. We are set for the Grade Separation Stakeholder Meeting on Thursday February 12, 2015 at 7p.  I’m planning to send out a reminder next week to those who have not responded yet.  I’ll provide an attendance count at the meeting.
  1. OML Legislative Luncheon.  Please confirm if anyone can join me for the 2015 OML Legislative Reception that will be held on March 18, 2015 from 6 to 7 p.m.
  1. 506 Beckett St. Dangerous Building. The Notice of Declaration of Public Nuisance for 506 Beckett was officially issued on January 29, 2015.  The current residence on file for Don Barringer the owner of 506 Beckett appeared vacant.  The phone number for his current residence was also disconnected.  Mr. Barringer has 60-days to abate the nuisance, which ends on March 30, 2015.  Although the notice was properly served it is likely that Mr. Barringer has not and may not receive it.  Therefore, I’m searching for other means to locate him and confirm receipt of the notice. The Ordinance allows the village to abate the nuisance and charge the costs against the land.

Aaron Patterson said that the current snow removal policy is ridiculous and should be               revised by the Public Works Committee, the Personnel, Policy and Ordinance                          Review Committee and Ms Dettling.  Ms Dettling circulated a draft of such a                                            revision.  Aaron Patterson said that the village can do a better job of snow removal in           support of our citizens.  He also said that a revised policy would be helpful for Ms                            Dettling.

Tarr St. for the SSP have not been reinstalled.  Mr. Julien or Ms                                 Dettling will check into the missing signs.

 

Referred to COTW.

                   Aaron Patterson asked Mr. Marcin if a letter written to him as a council                           person is a public record.  He was told yes.

 

                   Aaron Patterson voiced concern about the snow removal procedures in the                       village.  Mr. Cameron and Ms Thompson voiced concern that cars were being                    left on the snow streets and not being towed or ticketed.  Chief Baer said that                                council had not provided him with direction based on the 2013 snow removal                               discussions.  He further stated that most of the signs on the snow streets are                           illegible.  Aaron Patterson volunteered to drive the snow streets and verify                           the signs’ condition.

 

Ms Dettling said that she would review and revise our snow removal                                             procedures.  She said that our current procedures do not take into                                       consideration the safety of the traveling public nor pedestrians.  Ms Dettling                               said that she did not believe that our current street superintendent has the                                safety of the public in mind when it comes to snow removal.  Aaron                                            Patterson reminded council that we recently increased the number of                                       employees in that department so snow removal should be a higher priority.

Mayor issues Snow Emergency Regulations Notification

From North Baltimore Mayor C. Michael Julian – January 29, 2015:

Village Ordinance requires that we issue notification of the below during the month of January.

From North Baltimore Mayor C. Michael Julian – January 29, 2015:

Village Ordinance requires that we issue notification of the below during the month of January.

“The legislative authority of the Village of North Baltimore has adopted an ordinance regulating the parking of motor vehicles during the snow emergencies.

A snow emergency may be declared to exist by declaration of the Mayor, or in his absence the President of Council, because of falling snow, sleet, or freezing rain or on the basis of a forecast by the United States Weather Bureau or other weather service of snow, sleet, or freezing rain making it necessary to expedite traffic, and that, therefore, it will be necessary to prohibit parking on certain streets within the Village designated as “snow emergency routes”.

A parking prohibition shall automatically go into effect in any designated snow emergency route under which there has been an accumulation of snow and/or ice of two (2) inches or more for one hour or more between the hours of 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. of any day.

A snow emergency declared by the Mayor or the President of Council shall commence at such time as the police dispatcher is notified that it has been declared to exist.  Said dispatcher shall log the time of declaration and times within which vehicles must be removed from snow emergency routes shall be computed from that time so recorded.

The following have been designated snow emergency routes; Main Street, Broadway, Poe Road, Tarr Street, West State Street from Main to Mitchell Rd, Second Street, and Water Street.
