COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B Madame Clerk, are the minutes of the previous meeting transcribed and open for public viewing (I just finished them)  Obviously we haven’t had a chance to look at them then so we’ll wait until next week to approve them.

5.  REMARKS OF DELEGATIONS AND CITIZENS TO MATTERS ON THE AGENDA

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B This is item 5 where we invite you forward to speak to a topic that’s on the agenda.  Many of you were here for the public hearing and you’re more than welcome to get up and speak again.  We have no time limit per say but if you’re running a little bit long I’ll gently ask you to finish up.  If too many people are saying exactly the same thing I’ll do the same thing I’ll ask you to please cut it short.  But at this point if anyone would like to speak to a topic on the agenda please come to the microphone give your name and address and make your comments. 

ERIC MAIER – I’m an attorney here in Massillon at 108 3rd Street NE.  I represent residents who are neighbors of Fresh Mark.  We were here regarding Ordinance No. 12 – 2010 at the public hearing prior to this meeting.  At that time I expressed on behalf of the neighbors their concerns with the proposed rezoning from residential to industrial.  Those certain lots at the conclusion of that public meeting we agreed to meet with the representatives of Fresh Mark and discuss their concerns.  We intend to do so I don’t need to restate those concerns of property value, safety, estetics, noise, but we intend to address those with the representative of Fresh Mark and report back to the work session of council next week.  Two weeks from hope to report back and again optimistically with some joint agreement to resolve that.  If not we’ll report that as well.  But the residents are here present and in objection to the proposed rezoning.  Thank you.

BRIAN ASHMAN – I’m the site engineer for Fresh Mark.  As Attorney Maier stated the recommendation of the public hearing for possible putting this on the table for a slight delay so Fresh Mark and the residents can get their concerns resolved is something we’re in favor of.  So we will work deligently to try to get any concerns that they have addressed and be back here in two weeks with a joint agreement.  Thank you.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B Is there anyone else who would like to come forward on this topic or any other that appears on the agenda.  If not we will move into the business portion of the meeting.  Mr. Mang, do you have a request?

6.  INTRODUCTION OF ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

COUNCILMAN MANG B Yes, I’d like to amend the agenda to bring Ordinance No. 12 – 2010 as the lead item on the agenda.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B Is there any objection to moving that item forward for consideration?  Doesn’t appear to be.

ORDINANCE NO. 12 B 2010                     BY:   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Amending Section 1151.02 of the Massillon Code of 1985 rezoning a certain tract of land from R-1 Single Family Residential to I-1 Light Industrial.

 

COUNCILMAN MANG B We held a public hearing this evening and it was very interesting to most of us that were not aware of some of the objections.  At this point I will recognize the fourth ward councilman where this property in question is being considered.  Tony?

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – I strongly recommend you know I suggest that we do table this until the 15th so the residents can meet with representatives from Fresh Mark to discuss their concerns.  I think Mr. Ashman said it best he stated that I think he feels it’s a good idea I feel it’s a good idea.  So I strongly recommend and suggest that we table Ordinance No. 12 – 2010 until the 15th. 

COUNCILMAN MANG B You heard the recommendation of Mr. Townsend.  I so move, seconded by Councilman McCune.

ORDINANCE NO. 12 – 2010 WAS TABLED UNTIL MARCH 15, 2010 BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

ORDINANCE NO. 28 B 2010                     BY:   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Amending CHAPTER 1121 “CONSTRUCTION OF LANGUAGE; DEFINITIONS”, CHAPTER 1153 “R-1 Through R-4 ONE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DISTRICTS” and CHAPTER 1163 “B-1 LOCAL BUSINESS DISTRICT” of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Massillon, by enacting new SubSections 1121.02(89) and (90) “DEFINITIONS”, SubSections 1153.03(f)(4) “PRINCIPAL USES PREMITTED SUBJECT TO SPECIAL CONDITIONS” and 1163.02(k) “PRINCIPAL USES PERMITTED”, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN MANG B At the work session Mr. Stergios explained why this piece of legislation is needed and I will remind you at present our interpretation of golf courses would be something very similar to the Legends.  Our interpretation of put, put golf courses or something of that nature is totally different.  We’ve been questioned upon this by Canton judge and their feeling is that golf courses are golf courses.  So in lieu of that Mr. Stergios’ prepared legislation that we will designate what a golf course is and what a put, put course is.  We’ll be giving this first reading. 

ORDINANCE NO. 28 – 2010 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B Public hearing, Mr. Mang?

COUNCILMAN MANG B I don’t know if we have to have a public hearing.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B Mr. Stergios, is there a public hearing involved since we’re changing the code.

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – I believe there is.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER  B We will figure out a date and let you all know but it will be roughly a month from now.  Probably at the first meeting in April.

ORDINANCE NO. 29 B 2010                     BY:   HEALTH, WELFARE & BLDG REGULATIONS

Amending Section 2(D) OCCUPATION LIST OF CLASS TITLES – HEALTH DEPARTMENT of Ordinance No. 127 – 1997 by amending Section 2(D) OCCUPATION LIST OF CLASS TITLES – HEALTH DEPARTMENT” and adding a 12S position classification under said section, in the City of Massillon, Ohio, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND B We discussed this at the last work session where Mrs. Argent came in and explained to council what she was looking for.  But just to recap it a little bit the health department is requesting council to pass this legislation to create an employee classification of a 12S.  The new classification is needed for a licensed professional position.  The new position will be a dietician for the WIC program.  If there are no questions I would like to move Ordinance No. 29 forward for a vote. 

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilman Manson.

The rules were suspended by a roll call vote of 9 yes.

ORDINANCE NO. 29 – 2010 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

ORDINANCE NO. 30 B 2010                     BY:   PARKS AND RECREATION COMMITTEE

Authorizing the Director of Public Service and Safety of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to enter into contract with B & B Restaurants, Ltd., to purchase the food and beverage service and related items, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE B I will be asking first reading on this tonight.  However, I will note to council that the Parks & Rec. Board is meeting Thursday at 3:00pm to discuss the same issue.  I anticipate because the contract was to our law director today that we will be asking for an emergency meeting for the purposes of voting on this legislation.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER– So you’re asking first reading tonight?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE B That’s correct.

ORDINANCE NO. 30 – 2010 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER– Mr. Slagle, you’re guessing what Wednesday or Thursday you’ll know about the special meeting. 

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE B Well, I anticipate that I’ll be asking for to have a special meeting on Monday.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER– Okay, make sure your fellow committee members approve and we get the notifications out.  Alright, thank you.

ORDINANCE NO. 31 B 2010                     BY:   STREETS, HIGHWAYS, TRAFFIC & SAFETY

Authorizing the Director of Public Service and Safety of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to advertise for and receive sealed bids and enter into a contract, upon award and approval of the Board of Control, with the lowest and best bidder for the 9th Street SW Resurfacing Project in the City of Massillon, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN PETERS B This again is authorizing the director to advertise and receive sealed bids for the resurfacing of 9th Street SW.  I was only going to give this first reading, but I see no reason not to move forward.  The estimated cost of the project is $219,000, 50% will be funded the OPWC and the remaining 50% is anticipated through the Stark County Municipal Road Fund.  So if there are any questions Mr. Dylewski is here we can bring him up if not I’m going to move to waive the rules.  I see a question so…

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY  B Yes, it’s for Mr. Dylewski..  Mr. Dylewski, I am pleased that 50% will be funded by OPWC but what concerns me is the word anticipated from the Stark County Municipal Road.  What happens if those dollars don’t come through?

ENGINEER DYLEWSKI – Well, that was our first priority on our application for municipal road fund money.  I guess you could say it’s probably 99.9% sure that’s going to come through.  We just have gotten heard back yet from the Stark County Commissioners on what our allocation is for the year. 

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY  B Okay, thank you.

ENGINEER DYLEWSKI – Sure. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilman Mang.

The rules were suspended by a roll call vote of 9 yes.

ORDINANCE NO. 31 – 2010 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

ORDINANCE NO. 32 B 2010                     BY:   STREETS, HIGHWAYS, TRAFFIC & SAFETY

Accepting the replatting of Lots 9563, 9564, 9565, 9566, 9567, 9568, located on the north side of Lincoln Way East, just west of Wales Road, and including the dedication of a small portion of right-of-way for Lincoln Way East, in the City of Massillon, County of Stark, State of Ohio, presently on file in the office of the City Engineer, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN PETERS B First reading.

ORDINANCE NO. 32 – 2010 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.

ORDINANCE NO. 33 B 2010                     BY:   FINANCE COMMITTEE

Making certain transfers in the 2010 appropriations from within the Park & Recreation Fund, for the year ending December 31, 2010, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Yes, we discussed this at last week’s committee meeting.  This is money being repaid to the general fund from an advance that we made to parks & rec. several years.  I believe we should have probably had section 1 of the next ordinance and this reversed, but it doesn’t really matter because they both take action the first night or together.  They’re asking to transfer $70,000 and it would be going to advance to 1234.505 that’s the advance to account for the parks and rec.  Then would be going to return on advance 1100.905 back into the general fund.  So I will be asking to waive the rule. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER– Do we have questions on the ordinance?  Mr. Peters?

COUNCILMAN PETERS B I guess I apologize because I had to leave early last Monday and I wasn’t here when you discussed it.  I guess you might have to really explain this to me.  Where did we get the $70,000 where did we take from?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B That is coming out of the parks and rec. fund 1234.  It’s coming out of parks and rec. and it will be going into if you look at section 1 of 34 it will be going to advance to 1234.505.  Okay, that’s the first move, that’s the parks money and it will be into an advance to.  Then if you look at the first section of 33 it comes from the advance to account 1234.505 that I just mentioned where it’s going from parks and rec. into that.  Then it would go to return on advance 1100.905 which is the general fund. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS B Does everybody else understand this?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER– I think Mr. Peters, if I can restate your question.  Where did the $70,000 come in the first place?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B It comes from the parks and rec. budget. It’s being returned on an advance that we made to the parks and rec. before. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Is that clear Mr. Peters?  It flowed from the general fund to parks and rec. now its coming back. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS B Well, okay, I understand that part you know that it came out of parks and rec. but for what?  Why did it come out of the parks and rec.?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Okay, I’m going to…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Well, get someone else to answer that question.   Mr. Manson?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B We were questioned by the state auditors about this.  It was indicated to me that we should be transferring this back.  It was an advance now if you’d like to bring the auditor up and…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – It’s your call.

COUNCILMAN MANSON B I will ask the auditor to come up please and explain it.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mrs. Ferrero?

AUDITOR FERRERO – Back in 2008 we lent parks and rec. $140,000 at the end of 2009 they paid back $70,000 of that.  Now they’re paying back the rest of that $70,000 the remainder of the $140,000 that they owed.  So it was in two increments of $70,000 to pay back for that $140,000.

COUNCILMAN PETERS B Do you know what they borrowed or took the $140,000 for?

AUDITOR FERRERO – It was for operating expenses at that time.  It was in the beginning of 2008 I believe.  The auditors had asked us to clear this up because usually at the end of each fiscal year that gets cleaned up.  So they wanted that to get done.  Parks and rec. has the money so we were able to do that.  Does that answer your question?

COUNCILMAN PETERS B Yeah.

AUDITOR FERRERO – Okay.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Slagle?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE B Since our work session I was at the parks and rec. meeting.  In which coming up with money for instance to take care of the safety concerns at Oak Knoll Park wading park came up.  It was difficult for them to justify at that time $12,000 for it.  At the same time there were a couple gentlemen in attendance who were raising issue with the increase in rates at the ball park fields.  When you say that they have the money to give it back do you know where that’s coming from?

AUDITOR FERRERO – It’s coming from their park and rec. line item.  I mean I have nothing to do with when they raise rates or anything like that down there.  But I’m sorry…

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE B Yeah, I understand that we don’t have any question but I think there is a legitimate concern in the terms of the parks and rec. department that the some activities of the city have shortchanged the parks and rec. and put them in this position.  The only question I ask is do we need this to operate our daily expenses to get it back?

AUDITOR FERRERO – Well, as you know the financial crunch that we’re in we do need the money.  The parks and rec. department do have the funds available in their line item.  That’s what they have chosen to do.  Well, the state auditors recommended that it be done but they didn’t absolutely say we had to do it.  But the parks and rec. have the money in their coffers in order for us to do that and so its clean sweep and it’s a good thing that we’re…it’s a housekeeping thing that we’re cleaning it up.  As like everything else some of these programs are going to take a little bit of a hit this year. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Are there any other questions for the auditor?  Thank you.  Mr. Manson?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Okay.

COUNCILMAN MANSON moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilwoman Catazaro-Perry.

The rules were not suspended by a roll call vote of 5 no, 4 yes.  Anderson, Catazaro-Perry, Peters, Slagle and Townsend voted no.

ORDINANCE NO. 33 – 2010 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.                    

ORDINANCE NO. 34 B 2010                     BY:   FINANCE COMMITTEE

Making certain appropriations from the unappropriated balance of the Parks & Rec. Fund and the Law Enforcement Trust Fund, for the year ending December 31, 2010, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Yes, we have the same $70,000 there.  I will be making a motion to I would like to amend this ordinance and take section 1 out of it and leave section 2 in and act on that. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Alright, your motion should be to delete section 1 rename section 2 as section 1, section 3 becomes section 2. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS – You could just split the why couldn’t he just split the question and we only vote on that part of it we don’t have to amend?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Well, if you split the question you have to vote on both parts.  His motion will delete it from the ordinance.

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Okay, thank you. 

COUNCILMAN MANSON B We can do either one.  I just figured since the $70,000 was voted down in the last one that there would be no point in voting on that. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Okay, can you restate your motion then?  What is it that you would like to do?

COUNCILMAN MANSON B I’d like to retract that motion.  I would like to make a motion to split them, okay, then we’ll act on them separately.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Alright, we have a motion to split the two sections in the ordinance, seconded by Councilman Hersher. 

Roll call vote of 9 yes to split Ordinance No. 34 – 2009, and act on section 2 of the ordinance. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Okay, the first thing we need then is a motion to suspend the rules and vote on section 1.

COUNCILMAN MANSON B I’ll just make a motion that we give section 1 first reading. 

SECTION 1 OF ORDINANCE NO. 34 – 2010 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – We now need to act on section 2. 

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Section 2, please appropriate $15,000 from the unappropriatied balance of the Law Enforcement Trust Fund account number 1215 into account 1215.305 new equipment.  This money is needed to purchase gas masks, bullet proof vests and additional essentials for the SWAT team.  Any questions?

COUNCILMAN MANSON moved for suspension of the rules and passage of section 2 of Ordinance No. 34 - 2010, seconded by Councilwoman Catazaro-Perry.

The rules were suspended by a roll call vote of 9 yes.

SECTION 2 OF ORDINANCE NO. 34 – 2010 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – I just wanted to check with the law director on our recording keeping.  Next week or in two weeks this will appear again as Ordinance No. 34 as section 1 only.

COUNCILMAN MANSON B Yes, this is an ordinance that we approved every year since I’ve been here.  We need this to be able to pay bills that come in this year for late 2009.  So I will asking to waive the rule.

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY  B Mrs. Ferrero, could you approach please?  We know that we have a $611,000 that we carried forward is there any other bills that you’re anticipating?

AUDITOR FERRERO –  Any time we have any bills we don’t need any kind of legislation to liquidate bills that like on PO that haven’t come through.  But any time we pay anything extra in the following year we do need to have it’s just a housekeeping issue like utilities, things like that, that have come through yet this year.  Even if it’s off by $3.00 we need to have this piece of legislation passed so that we don’t get a citation for this.

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY  B But do you anticipate it being large numbers?

AUDITOR FERRERO – No, well except for those few that I told you about.  No, this is a very small number.

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY  B Thank you.
