VII. Standing Committees:

Economic and Community Development (Ms. Thompson)

Nothing

Public Safety (Mr. Patterson)

See letter the Honorable Ms. Mayor Goldner drafted with our PSC, to the Henry Township Trustees and Clerk/Treasurer. Ms. Thompson doesn’t support this and doesn’t want her name attached. Feels like a threat. What else can we do? The intent is to generate some meaningful discussion. Mr. Carles asked where does Mr. Aaron Patterson stand with his petition? Needs 60 signatures, has until 2-1-17- 90 days before the election. Has to file with the clerk, wait 10 days- file with B of E-10 days to signatures, then back to clerk. There needs to be something started with the deal, we have spoken to them in September and November. It is a difficult situation, but something needs to get it going. Ms. Murray is to call the Township and set up a meeting. In the billing, according to Mr. Kirk, we lose 10%. Ms. Thompson said, charge them. It was mentioned how insurance only pays an agreed amount- there is a surcharge-limit on the reimbursement. Henry Twp is having a problem with the money. They have to put something on the ballot. Any suggestions are helpful.

Motion made by Mr. Van Mooy to table the PSC letter. Second by Mr. Carles. All approved.
