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

ERIC WOHLWEND – 5844 Dueber Ave SW, East Sparta, Ohio.  I would like to urge you to turn down Ordinance No. 46 – 2011 the inspections for multiple reasons or excuse me the registration.  First of all it’s just confusing the way it’s written you want an application fee every three years and then we have to apply again.  What are we applying for the second time we do that and then with your $50.00, $65.00 fees with a max of $1,000.  How do you add that up if I have 5 or 6 different LLC’s that own property in this city does that limit me to $5,000 or $6,000 or do I just have to pay the $1,000 since I’m the sole owner of all of these.  But we have a meeting on Friday you already have it up for the second reading.  I know we’ve talked to the building inspector, we said we really wanted to get together and write this help make it be more clear.  And here you’re doing the second reading before he’s even found the time to meet with us.  So I urge you to put this off or turn it down.  Thank you.

LILA WOHLWEND – 5844 Dueber Ave.  I’m also here to speak out against the ordinance for the registration of non-owner occupied residents.  I understand that there are some landlords in the city that are not doing their business correctly.  However I don’t think that charging the rest of us to pay for the inspections that are needed for the ones that aren’t following the rules is the best way to do this.  You want to be encouraging those of us that are doing the business correctly to do more in this city not less.  I think the best way to do that is to make our job easier not more difficult.  I don’t understand why the landlords that are causing the problem are not the ones being charged why they’re not getting the special assessments and why the rest of us are now faced with essentially making up for what they’re not doing.  I urge you to turn this down and I thank you for your time. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mr. Peters, you would like to reply to this?

COUNCILMAN PETERS-Well, for the people who got up and spoke the building inspector has asked us to table Ordinance No. 46 and not go forward with it at this time.  So at the last meeting he did that.

6.  INTRODUCTION OF ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

ORDINANCE NO. 53 B 2011                     BY:   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Approving an application for assistance under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, including the Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan; authorizing the execution and filing of the application and related assurances and certifications, and declaring an emergency.

 
COUNCILMAN MANG-If you look at the sheet that outlines the recipients of the money you will notice that the Boys and Girls Club has been added.  If you had totaled up the columns before that total would have been different than what we had listed for the people.  In other words the Boys and Girls Club was already there it was just not put in print.  Okay?  So we’ll be giving it first reading tonight and there will be a public hearing on April 18, 2011 at 6:30pm.

ORDINANCE NO. 53 – 2011 WAS GIVEN FIRST READING.

ORDINANCE NO. 54 B 2011                     BY:   ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE

Authorizing the Director of Public Service and Safety of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to sign the Participation and Redevelopment Agreement with PSR Development, Ltd, to assist in the performance of a Phase II Environmental Assessment on the former Republic Steel Property, and declaring an emergency.

 
COUNCILMAN HERSHER-This is a continuation of the Phase II Environmental Assessment at the old Republic Site.  This is we’ve had a couple other pieces of legislation dealing with this assessment.  This particular piece just is a Participation and Redevelopment Agreement between the city who is working with PSR and receiving the funds and performing the assessment out at the site.  I didn’t hear any concerns at the work session or anything since then so I’d like to go ahead and pass this, this evening unless somebody has concerns this evening that they’d like to bring up. 

COUNCILMAN HERSHER 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. 54 – 2011 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

ORDINANCE NO. 55 B 2011                     BY:   PARKS AND RECREATION COMMITTEE

Authorizing the Director of Public Service and Safety of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to enter into a lease agreement wit the Board of Education of the Massillon City School District for the leasing of Eagles 190 Sports Complex, and declaring an emergency.

 
COUNCILMAN SLAGLE-Yes, this is the lease agreement between the city and the Massillon Board of Education.  It involves the Eagles 190 Sports Complex which is that field that is east of the stadium.  It’s used primarily by the school system itself the recreation department through the director and also through the mayor’s office have arranged where a contract by which it’s leased for the period of 25 years to the board of education at $1.00 per year.  The Board of Education will take over all the maintenance, insurance whatever repairs need to be done of the field.  Nothing else can be done with it the lease can be terminated within 6 months with 6 months notice by either side.  It’s a good deal for the city; it’s a good deal for the Board of Education because it’s the school that actually use the park.  So Jeff Thornberry is here from the rec. department if anyone would have any questions about the thought process and the rec. department.  But it’s basically what we just said for a $1.00 a year they take over all the upkeep, maintenance they can’t do anything with it without discussing it but they take care of everything to their satisfaction.  Our parks department will no longer have any involvement with it.  I don’t believe I heard any questions at the work session it’s a good thing to move forward on because the sooner we sign the lease the faster than they start maintaining it to their liking. 

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE 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. 31 B 2011                     BY:   RULES, COURTS & CIVIL SERVICE COMMITTEE

Establishing procedures to determine the lowest and best bid for the construction of public improvements in the City of Massillon, Ohio and to allow the use of Project Labor Agreements for the construction of certain public improvements in the City of Massillon.

 
COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY-We have given the PLA ordinance three full readings.  But I wanted to give you some additional information tonight before we bring it forward.  There’s two more letters in support of the PLA we’ve had I believe just one letter against the PLA.  Our chambers tonight are full of union workers that have come out in support of this.  This is an option this doesn’t mean the city has to utilize the PLA this just gives us an option to utilize the PLA when and if the city chooses to do so.   So its similar to those things that we’ve passed and we’ll say you know we didn’t enter into contract yet when this well we’re not enter into a contract here.  It’s just if the city would like to utilize it. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Are there any comments or questions, Mr. Slagle?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE-Yeah, I had the enjoyable experience of going out to the Plumbers and Pipefitters Hall last week.  Frankly, that’s the first time I’ve been there in way to long and met with Mr. Kervin.  He showed me the educational areas that they have there and it’s pretty impressive when you understand that the union members have to go through five year programs in order to be qualified to pass the apprenticeship and they go to school those two nights a week and what they have to learn to do.  I think it certainly is a benefit that any project should have and we should encourage the use of these projects in my opinion. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mr. McCune?

COUNCILMAN MCCUNE-Yes, although I am fully supportive of this I haven’t heard from the Mayor as yet to hear what his position is on this subject.  So I would like to bring him forward and ask him where his position is on this in regard to PLAs. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-With your permission may we finish with council before we bring him up or do you want him now?

COUNCILMAN MCCUNE-Sure, that’s fine we can finish.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mr. Mang?

COUNCILMAN MANG-Yes, I have several questions one of them is I don’t know if the city has ever done anything wrong and the best of my knowledge everybody has had an opportunity to quote in the city.  I know we had 14 letters of support or 15 and we had 1 not supportive of it where they mentioned that there were 500 workers in the City of Massillon that might not be able to be part of this.  That really concerns me if not everybody in this city has an equal opportunity to participate I don’t know why we would want to do this.  The other thing is that right now what’s going on at the state level I’m not really certain what we’re going to end up with.  You know they may penalize you for coming to a council meeting I don’t know.  It’s obvious that they’re going to try to have a referendum which I think is fantastic but what finally ends up with I don’t know.  Since they’ve already taken the stand that the Ohio school facilities will not be participating in the program gives you a kind of idea what’s going on.  Now I do understand and hear the way it is at present that the city can participate in the program except if there’s government money involved or state money.  Then they would be the option most of the projects that this city gets involved with and basically the only thing we’ve talked about building in the next one, two, three years was a fire station.  That fire station I would think knowing how we’re going to scramble for money we’ll probably be looking to the state for some money.  I would hate to think that we were pushing this thing ahead hasn’t been too long ago I sat here and we talked about TIFs people said well you know there’s talk that they may be more lenient or they may be more strict.  Well there wasn’t even any talk but we felt that in the best interest of everybody we put this on the table for awhile and which we did.  So I think the best thing that can be said about this piece of legislation that we know what the state is thinking about now and if that’s the case we all know what those ramifications are.  What we don’t know is if they get a referendum and if in the meantime the state decides to go another way tighten it up, loosen it up, throw it in the can I don’t’ know.  But you know these are people that we the voters sent to Columbus to decide these issues.  So I would like to see that the voters wishes are extended and also that the city has not found itself in a position where the State of Ohio might look down their nose at us.  Thank you.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Is there anyone else who would like to speak, Mr. Manson?

COUNCILMAN MANSON-Yes, we’ve had this now for what I believe six weeks and we’ve had some discussion on it.  I made some points earlier and I would like to make those points again.  The first thing that I look at whenever I’m looking at legislation is do we have problem?  I’ve talked to our engineer I’ve talked to our law director and at this point in time nobody has told me we’ve had any problems with the system that we have.  We have an agreement that is that thick the contractors have to comply with if they want to do jobs within the city.  I think the second part I think our system is fair it’s open to everybody we comply with prevailing wage laws, we comply part of this is OSHA requirements.  In every way I believe that the system we have is fine and its working fine.  I understand the beating labor people are taking right now and I know that they would like to look for some relief and stuff but I don’t believe that this is the way to do it.  There’s one thing I’m absolutely sure of this will increase the cost to the city that’s one thing I spent a lot of time reading a lot of PLAs and a lot of information about them.  Not so much on the bidding process that whatever happens there with fuel costs and everything else bids over time because of the inflation will be going up.  But it’s going to add the administration cost to the city.  I’m not in favor of doing that at this time.  Everybody’s talking about governments being leaner and leaner and reducing their cost to government.  The City of Massillon has done a pretty good job of holding the line as far as what taxpayers in Massillon pay for their government.  If this comes forward tonight I will be voting no.  There are other things that I have that the thing I want to bring up is this puts this thing totally in the Mayor’s hands.  Just a year or so ago maybe a year and a half I don’t know what it was we didn’t trust the Mayor well enough to accept his recommendation for the recreation board.  We took that away from him and he can make his recommendation but we have to approve it.  Now we’re going to turn away and put a system in that deals with contracts that are tens of millions of dollars and we’re going to leave it in the Mayor’s hands.  I think we’re being inconsistent in what we’re doing there.  So I like I said I will be voting no if this moves forward tonight. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mr. McCune, we’ll call the Mayor forward at this time if you’d like. 

COUNCILMAN MCCUNE-Yes, if you would please. 

MAYOR CICCHINELLI – You know I’ve given this legislation a lot of thought.  I think it boils down to just a couple of issues.  Mr. Manson mentioned that the cost of projects could increase if a PLA is in existence.  It’s been my experience that on large projects there are always add ons for whatever reason and the cost in some cases is increased.  I think it could have the opposite effect of increase in the cost of a project.  I think if we have a specific project and whether its an addition to the Wastewater Treatment Plant, whether it’s a new fire station or a new city building I think this gives us another opportunity to work with our trades, work with the men and women of this county that have proven through the years that they certainly construct quality buildings.  I feel that it gives potential for actually in the long haul lowering the cost of a project or at least staying within budget.  That’s important because we do have to as we do now and in the futures years we’re still going to have to make sure that the cost of these projects aren’t escalating.  So also lets be upfront and honest with all of us there seems to be an assault in this state at the present time on the hard working men and women of labor.  There’s no question that probably the SB-5 needs to be tweaked the collective bargaining law probably or definitely needs to be tweaked.  But I think what we have going on in Columbus is an outright assault.  I feel that if this gives us an opportunity to work and actually put to work the men and women of our labor unions I think that’s the least that we can do to provide stable incomes and stable jobs for the hardworking men and women of our area.  So I 100% support this legislation and I urge council to pass it. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Before we turn it back over to Mrs. Catazaro-Perry are there any other comments or questions.   Mr. Slagle?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE-I would just like to say that all the studies that have been done and the most recent one was from the Cornell Labor Relation School have established that there is actually no evidence to support assurance that costs are driven up in the agreements.  I don’t think there’s any statistical evidence of whatever established that #1.  #2, I totally agree with the Mayor on this that there’s absolutely no reason this is subject to council approval and the language so he can negotiate it if we find something wrong with it it’s still subject to council’s approval in the end.  I think it’s a good effort by us to show the support to have a well trained, experienced work force on our projects and if non-union contractors can bid on them they’re entitled and if they’re successful they can do the project they just have to comply with the terms of the agreement.  I think it’s a positive for the city and I fully support it.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mrs. Catazaro-Perry?

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY moved to bring Ordinance No. 31 – 2011 forward for its passage, seconded by Councilman Townsend. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS-Point of order.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mr. Peters?

COUNCILMAN PETERS-I’d like to make a motion that we table.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Alright, that motion is in order is there a second?  Seconded by Councilman Mang.  Roll call vote on the motion to table.

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY-Excuse me, Mr. President, point of order.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Okay, just one second.  You know I always advocate tabling to a specific time do you have a specific time?

COUNCILMAN PETERS-Well, I can give it certain time but I’d like a little more time on this to be quite honest with you.  In my discussions I mean the last you know what we’ve been doing the last two or three weeks and haven’t had a lot time to spend on this.  There hasn’t been a whole lot of discussion at the work sessions one night I think.  I mean its been brought up but there hasn’t been a lot of discussion because we’ve been kind of over come by the budget thing.  You know that’s taken up a lot of time so lets say first of June whenever that is. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Is that your intent the first meeting in June?

COUNCILMAN PETERS-Yeah.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-Mrs. Catazaro-Perry?

COUNCILWOMAN CATAZARO-PERRY-Well, we had a motion and a second on the floor.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER-We did and then we had a motion to table and the motion to table takes precedence just the way a motion to amend would.  We have no discussion we move straight to the vote.  Roll call to suspend until the first meeting in June.

The motion to table was defeated by a roll call vote of 6 no, 3 yes.  Mang, Manson and Peters voted yes.

ORDINANCE NO. 31 – 2011 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 6 YES, 3 NO.  MANG, MANSON AND PETERS VOTED NO.
