Grass Clippings – – –
July 22, 2015

North Baltimore Village Council will be adopting an emergency ordinance prohibiting residents from placing grass clippings on streets, curbs, alleys or sidewalks. A draft of the proposed Ordinance is provided herein.

The recent rain events have challenged our stormwater system to its limits. Aggressive effort to keep debris especially grass clippings out of the stormwater system; catch basins, gutters, gutter grates, swales and ditches is essential to maximize the function of the stormwater system throughout the Village. This effort will improve the flow of stormwater and reduce the risk of localized flooding. Many stormwater pipes throughout the village are becoming clogged and needlessly plugged due to debris; mostly grass clippings.

All residents are asked to do their part to help improve the flow of stormwater; clean-up, bag, or mulch your grass clippings.

DON’T ALLOW GRASS CLIPPINGS TO ENTER THE STORMWATER SYSTEM!

GRASS CLIPPINGS & YARD WASTE –

Due to the negative impact on the Village’s Storm Water Collection system, it is hereby declared to be unlawful for any person, firm, association, or corporation to deposit, place, discard, drop or in any other manner scatter any grass clippings, leaves, branches or other lawn, garden, or tree waste in or upon the streets, curbs, sidewalks, or alleys of the Village of North Baltimore except as identified below.

a. Branches and tree limbs shall be placed together in bundles and placed at the appropriate street or alley line for collection by the Public Works Department on the appointed days as set forth in the published schedule.

b. Bagged leaves may be deposited in the street lawns of the Village near the curb in such a manner as directed by the Village Administrator at such times of the year as specified in public notices by the Village Office contemporaneously with the beginning and ending of such time periods.

c. Nothing in the Ordinance shall be construed as prohibiting the temporary scattering of grass clippings, leaves, or the like on Village streets, curbs, alleys, or sidewalks where the same occurs incidental to and during mowing, raking, or clipping operations provided the same shall thereafter be removed and corrected immediately at the conclusion of such operations.

Any person violating any provision of this Ordinance will be subject to a fine of $50.00 for the first offense and $100.00 for any subsequent offense.

To the citizens of Wood County:

Twenty years ago this month I began my service as your Wood County commissioner.  It has been a tremendous honor to be a part of Wood County’s success over the years.

I leave office pleased that Wood County’s economy is one of the strongest in Ohio.  We have a good jobs climate, an excellent bond rating and our county financial condition is as healthy as it has been in many years.

I thank the people of Wood County for allowing me to serve them.

Sincerely,

James Carter

Chief Baer discussed the recent heroin arrest. He said that our department is one of the few that files charges against the supplier. One case of involuntary manslaughter is before the grand jury currently and Chief expects an indictment.

Chief Baer announced that he is taking vacation and he appointed Lafferty as Officer in Charge during the absence. Mr. Cameron called for an executive session.

Ms Dettling and Mr. Marcin addressed the abandoned house on Beckett St. that Ms Dettling is recommending to be demolished at village expense. Our costs will be the third lien on the property following taxes and a mortgage. Since the house will be gone the only value is the land and the third lien may not be satisfied when the lot sells. Ms Dettling pointed out that we do have $5000 appropriated for such demolitions. Based on Ms Dettling’s recommendation, Ms Goldner made a motion to hire All Excavating to clean up 506 Beckett St. at a cost not to exceed $ 2400. Work to begin weather permitting 06-15-15. Second by Mr. Cameron. All approved.
Ms Dettling reviewed the new hire form and the street paving that is required whenever there is a water line repair. It is the consensus of council that the cost of such repairs is the responsibility of the public utilities department and that such repairs must be done in a more timely manner—weather and the availability of the asphalt permitting.

Clerk: Present.
Clerk Van Mooy distributed copies of an e-mailed opinion from Appointed Legal Counsel Marcin that opined that the vote at the 05-19-15 meeting on Ordinance 2015-13 was done in error. According to Village Administrative Code Section 121.01 (b)(6), council president, while acting as mayor in the absence of the mayor for the meeting, should have been given the opportunity to vote on the ordinance. Had she voted there might have been a tie. Said tie would have caused the ordinance to be laid over until the next meeting to give the mayor the opportunity to vote. The opinion stated that Ordinance 2015-13 should be given a new third reading at this meeting. Clerk Van Mooy distributed copies of Ordinance 2015-13. The Appointed Legal Counsel’s opinion is below.
Rick;
You asked the question following the last council meeting when ordinance 2015-13 funding the EMS was not approved, whether it could be reintroduced. You pointed out that Janet Goldner as President of Council did not vote as she was chairing the meeting in the Mayors absence. That had she been allowed to vote and had she voted in favor of passage, the ordinance might have passed or at least ended up in a tie vote.
See Village Administrative Code Section 121.01(b)(6). A member of Council that is temporarily chairing a Council meeting in the absence of the Mayor has the right to vote on all matters as a Council member. Ms. Goldner should have been included in the roll call votes at the last meeting.
Further, it is my opinion that if the vote had ended in a tie, in the Mayor’s absence the ordinance should have laid over for his tie breaking vote at the next regular or special meeting of Council.
It is therefore my opinion that ordinance 2015-13 be reintroduced for a new third reading because the Ordinance was not properly voted on at the May 19th Council meeting and correcting this error may well affect the outcome. This procedural error should be corrected by giving all Council members present, including Ms. Goldner the right to cast their vote. If the vote does end in a tie Mayor Julien retains the authority to break the tie.
Ms. Goldner was not called upon to vote on any other ordinances, resolutions or motion that were considered at the last meeting. This obviously was also in error. However, since all other matters considered at the last meeting were approved by unanimous vote of the other members of council present, Ms. Goldner’s failure to vote did not affect the outcome. It is therefore my opinion that it is not necessary to revote on the other matters that were considered at the last meeting.

I apologize for not catching the error in not including Ms. Goldner in the roll call, but the issue comes up so rarely that I was caught off guard.

Clerk Van Mooy distributed copies of an e-mailed opinion from Appointed Legal Counsel Marcin that opined that the vote at the 05-19-15 meeting on Ordinance 2015-13 was done in error.  According to Village Administrative Code Section 121.01 (b)(6), council president, while acting as mayor in the absence of the mayor for the meeting, should have been given the opportunity to vote on the ordinance.  Had she voted there might have been a tie.  Said tie would have caused the ordinance to be laid over until the next meeting to give the mayor the opportunity to vote.  The opinion stated that Ordinance 2015-13 should be given a new third reading at this meeting.  Clerk Van Mooy distributed copies of Ordinance 2015-13.  The Appointed Legal Counsel’s opinion is below.

 

Rick;

You asked the question following the last council meeting when ordinance 2015-13 funding the EMS was not approved, whether it could be reintroduced. You pointed out that Janet Goldner as President of Council did not vote as she was chairing the meeting in the Mayors absence. That had she been allowed to vote and had she voted in favor of passage, the ordinance might have passed or at least ended up in a tie vote.

See Village Administrative Code Section 121.01(b)(6). A member of Council that is temporarily chairing a Council meeting in the absence of the Mayor has the right to vote on all matters as a Council member. Ms. Goldner should have been included in the roll call votes at the last meeting.

Further, it is my opinion that if the vote had ended in a tie, in the Mayor’s absence the ordinance should have laid over for his tie breaking vote at the next regular or special meeting of Council.

It is therefore my opinion that ordinance 2015-13 be reintroduced for a new third reading because the Ordinance was not properly voted on at the May 19th Council meeting and correcting this error may well affect the outcome. This procedural error should be corrected by giving all Council members present, including Ms. Goldner the right to cast their vote. If the vote does end in a tie Mayor Julien retains the authority to break the tie.

Ms. Goldner was not called upon to vote on any other ordinances, resolutions or motion that were considered at the last meeting. This obviously was also in error. However, since all other matters considered at the last meeting were approved by unanimous vote of the other members of council present, Ms. Goldner’s failure to vote did not affect the outcome. It is therefore my opinion that it is not necessary to revote on the other matters that were considered at the last meeting.

I apologize for not catching the error in not including Ms. Goldner in the roll call, but the issue comes up so rarely that I was caught off guard.

Letter to Editor: Wondering about Street Sweeping & Village Communications

As the summer begins to pass by, I’m wondering what has become of the street sweeping that, by my understanding, was supposed to be done every two weeks?

Editor:

As the summer begins to pass by, I’m wondering what has become of the street sweeping that, by my understanding, was supposed to be done every two weeks? What doesn’t get swept up, will only cost more to be jetted up as the sewers begin to get clogged.

Also, I read several months ago that there was a paving plan in place, with streets identified to begin this summer. Is this still in the works?

I’d really like to see an improvement in the quality of communication coming from our Village Leadership. I’m not impressed by the fill-in-the-blank reports that are displayed in the news each month. A little personal communication about what’s going on, what’s coming up and where we’re heading would be very much appreciated.

From a Concerned Citizen

Toledo Air National Guard Unit Performing Exercise Flights

Toledo Air National Guard Unit Performing Exercise Flights to Test Response Capability – WEATHER PERMITTING –

(Swanton, Ohio) – Alert fighter jets from the 180th Fighter Wing will conduct a test of the Aerospace Control Alert system on Tuesday, July 7, between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.

The purpose of the event is to exercise coordination between the Eastern Air Defense Sector, Federal Aviation Administration and 180th Fighter Wing alert aircraft.

Those living in the areas in and around the Dayton and Middletown area may hear and/or see fighter jets in close proximity to a Civil Air Patrol aircraft, which will be taking on the role of a Track of Interest (TOI).

Although scheduled for the morning, the exercise flights could be delayed due to weather concerns.

These types of exercises are conducted on a routine basis as part of North American Aerospace Defense Command’s Operation Noble Eagle, which was initiated after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

North Baltimore, Bloomdale and Hoytville Fire Departments, along with North Baltimore EMS and EMS responded to a house fire at 511 W State St. (vacant/abandoned), at around 3:00 am on Saturday, July 4.

The fire was extinguished and is being considered suspicious:

Anyone having information regarding last nights fire is asked to contact the police department immediately –

Fire W. State July 4
The vacant house appears to have recently been abandoned.
Fire W. State July 4 Neighbors siding
The fire was intense enough to melts the neighbors siding some 40 feet away.

North Baltimore Fire was again called to the scene just after noon, on July 4, as the fire did rekindle.

UPDATE:

An NBXpress reader, Dawn Williams sent us and email and some photos of the NBFD response to the rekindle. These were added Sunday afternoon (4:34 pm)

Dawn Williams says: I was awakened at 2:30 a.m. by one of the children saying, “mom, mom there is a house on fire!”
I got up and saw a towering inferno being taken care of by multiple fire departments. By 3 a.m. the huge fire was well under control.
But, at about noon, the fire crew showed up and began spraying the smoking remains again.
