Letters and Communications:

 

Mr. Rose reported that he was contacted by a resident asking why a street                         sign post is installed at the corner of their property.  Chief Baer said that it is                                 installed in the right of way and it is used in case there is a need to post                                 temporary stop signs in case the traffic signal quits working.

Mr. Rose asked for an update on the paving of several street cuts that were                        made during the winter to repair water lines.  Referred to Ms Dettling.

Ms Goldner read a letter that Mr. Julien sent to Rep. Latta asking for some                       assistance with sewer separation costs.   The letter was on the agenda due to a                    lack of a response from Rep. Latta’s office.  Ms Dettling reported that she                         had an appointment for a phone conversation with Rep. Latta’s senior                                             assistant Jason Iskovick in the coming days.

 

Administrative Reports:

 

Finance Officer: Present.  Report Submitted.

Ms Dettling reported that Shelter House # 3 should be complete by the end of the end of the week.  An accounting of expenditures for this project will follow.

Aaron Patterson arrived at 7:49 PM.

Village Administrator: Present.  Report Submitted.

Ms Dettling discussed her recommendation that we hire Clemans Nelson to examine personnel practices in an effort to get the employee wages scheduled implemented correctly and to review any need for back pay.  Aaron Patterson said that we already paid Clemans Nelson to do the initial work in 2008 and he asked why we should pay them again.  Ms Dettling said that by combining the services of her intern and Clemans Nelson that we will have the policy straightened out and ready to implement.  Mr. Kirk said that sufficient funds are available to pay for this service so no appropriations change is needed at this time.  Motion to enter into an agreement with Clemans Nelson at a cost not to exceed $ 5990.90 by Ms Thompson.  Second by Mr. Cameron.  All voted yes except Aaron Patterson who voted no.

Clerk: Present.

Clerk Van Mooy presented Ordinance 2015-26 to be added to the agenda.

Mr. Cameron asked if Van Mooy had served weed notices on the village.  He was told no.  Ms Dettling said that the staff is working to get the village cleaned up for Memorial Day and that she’d look into our mowing practices.

Mr. Cameron asked for monthly reports from the Street and Water Departments.  Referred to COTW.

Aaron Patterson asked that, since we are considering investing $1, 000,000 that we consider using that money to install a new water line under Main St before we get into the streetscape project in 2016 or 2017.  Referred to COTW.

Appointed Legal Counsel:  Present.

Mr. Marcin reviewed the revisions that he made to Ordinance 2015-15.  Rather than specifying a dollar amount to be collected from the income tax, Mr. Marcin inserted a percentage of revenues.  By using a percent, the funds from the collection for EMS purposes will fluctuate.

Mr. Marcin addressed Ordinance 2015-26 which deals with a request to vacate an alley.  He said that notification must be published for six weeks so the time needed for three reading will meet that requirement.

Mayor: Absent

Mr. Cameron and Ms Thompson criticized the mayor for releasing a Zombie warning on the SWAN system.  Chief Baer said that the mayor was testing group notification and mistakenly sent the text to all subscribers.  Ms Thompson suggested that in the future the words “this is a test” is used.

Standing Committees:

 

Economic and Community Development  (Aaron Patterson)

None

Public Safety  (Ms Goldner)

Ms Goldner reviewed the recent Saturday Public Safety meeting.

Chief Matthes represented Chief Francisco and recommended that Ryan Cook by appointed a member of the fire department. Motion to appoint by Mr. Cameron.  Second by Art Patterson.  All approved.

Ms Dettling provided back ground on Ordinance 2015-20. She assured council that no purchase is made until the loan is closed.  Mr. Kirk was asked about his recommendation that we   make two annual payments rather paying the loan off immediately.  He said that he thought it gave a better impression the USDA.  The consensus of council is that there is no need to make two payments since we have the money and there is no point in paying interest. Ms Dettling said that she would refigure the cost of the loan without paying interest.

Mr. Cameron requested that a guardrail be installed near E. Broadway and Poe.
