COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – We have arrived at #5 this is the part of the agenda where citizens may speak on a topic that appears on tonight’s agenda.  If you would like to speak on something please come to the microphone at this time and give your name, address for the record and the topic you want to discuss. 

BILL WEAVER – 28 Lincoln Way East, Massillon, Ohio.  The reason I am here is because of the very first ordinance for the community development committee.  I requested a $500 grant from the community development for beautification for downtown.  It does not come to me personally what we’re doing is we’re a group of people that work downtown are putting together the plan to plant all of the planters downtown just make it beautiful in time for the car show.  We have $250 worth of product that was donated from Lowes it was actually delivered to me today and I’m asking for $500 more to get the planters done for this year.  It will last the whole season.  And also I just want to make a note that we as Massillon Main Street have also secured a really nice bid of $3500 to repair all of the planters downtown until such time as they are removed in the 2020 plan.  So I’m requesting for the $500 to get the planters down in time for the car show.  Okay.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Thank you.  Is there anyone else?  Okay, well let’s move into Introductions of Ordinances and Resolutions.

6.  INTRODUCTION OF ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

ORDINANCE NO. 77 - 2014                      BY:   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Authorizing the Mayor of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to enter into an agreement with Bill Weaver, owner of A Victorian Reflection, to provide an economic development grant to assist the business with upgrading and beautifying the City’s downtown, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Thank you, Mr. President, I want to thank Mr. Weaver for being here and volunteering to help us with this.  Anybody has any comments or questions please come forward otherwise I’m going to be moving for passage tonight.  We don’t want to wait half the summer until growing season’s partially over. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, are there any questions for Councilman Manson?  There are none.

COUNCILMAN MANSON moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilwoman Scassa.

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

ORDINANCE NO. 77 – 2014 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Thank you, Madame Clerk, Ordinance No. 77 has passed.  And thank you, Mr. Weaver.

ORDINANCE NO. 78 - 2014                      BY:   RULES, COURTS AND CIVIL SERVICE COMMITTEE

Amending Chapter 121 “COUNCIL” of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Massillon, Ohio, by enacting a new Section 121.02(b) Rule 8.1 “Powers and Duties”.

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilwoman Scassa.

COUNCILWOMAN SCASSA – Thank you, Mr. President.  This was brought up at last week’s work session.  As long as there’s no questions I plan on making a motion to suspend the rules so that we can get this taken care of once and for all.  But I guess just to clear up any confusion this is amending what we had amended at the beginning of the year.  So a yes vote would essentially take it back to all of us sitting at the table, a no vote would keep the previous rule as enacted with only the committee members sitting at the table.  So hopefully I haven’t confused anyone further. 

COUNCILWOMAN SCASSA moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilman Chovan.

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

ORDINANCE NO. 78 – 2014 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 5 YES, 4 NO.  CHOVAN, DEL RIO-KELLER, LEWIS AND SCASSA VOTED NO.

ORDINANCE NO. 80 - 2014                      BY:   FINANCE COMMITTEE 

Making certain appropriations from the unappropriated balance of the General Fund, for the year ending December 31, 2014, and declaring an emergency. 

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Lewis.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Yes, this particular ordinance is coming from the municipal court.  They have special funds that get deposited into the general fund and then passed through into their municipal court usage and that is what we’re discussing here $4795 to the staff salary, $672 to PERS, $176 to workers comp and $69 for Medicare.  I didn’t see any need for more discussion unless something has come up recently.  Seeing no one make any motion that they need to discuss I would make a I move that we suspend the rules requiring three readings and bring Ordinance No. 80 – 2014 forward for a vote.  

COUNCILMAN LEWIS moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilwoman De Rio-Keller.

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

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Lewis.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Yes, this particular ordinance is the mirror ordinance to what we passed earlier tonight in Ordinance No. 77 for the beautification of downtown the grant.  Since that was passed obviously I think that maybe it would be appropriate to move forward with that tonight.  With that said I make a motion that we suspend the rules requiring three readings and bring Ordinance No. 81 – 2014 forward for a vote.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilwoman Scassa.

ORDINANCE NO. 44 - 2014                      BY:   COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

Amending Section 1151.02 of the Massillon Code of 1985 rezoning a certain tract of land from RM-1 Multiple Family Residential to RCRD Condominium Residential.                                                                              

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Yes, thank you, Mr. President.  This was tabled because we did have some people that came to the meeting and objected that’s the first we had heard.  But since then I’ve dug deeper into this I said I was in support of it you know even before but I’ve been digging deeper into this and there were some statements made about you know that FiberCorr their intention here is to leave a buffer in there.  They really have been fighting against the development in that area.  We had Mr. Roseman here; he owns the condominium project now.  I don’t know if anybody’s gotten down in there to look at it but it’s a project that started probably in ’06 or ’07 and got creamed by the recession and has been sitting there incomplete for quite awhile.  In fact if you go in there there’s a four unit that’s sitting there with weeds almost as tall as the spouting’s on the building right now the way the project stopped.  So I don’t think there were any legitimate complaints brought up about that.  I know they have suggested that Mr. Roseman adds an easement for that RM-1 property behind him there so they don’t isolate that property.  But other than that I see no reason for this to not go forward.  So I will recommending for passage this tonight.  If anybody has any questions I’ll gladly answer them.  Mrs. Halter, it’s your ward and…

COUNCILWOMAN HALTER – Yes, we worked out the difference that the homeowner had and the owner of FiberCorr.  So that was all worked out and everybody seems to be happy.  So I would recommend passage. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, are there any additional questions for Councilman Manson?  Okay, let’s make it official.

COUNCILMAN MANSON moved to bring Ordinance No. 44 – 2014 forward for passage, seconded by Councilman Chovan.

ORDINANCE NO. 44 – 2014 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

ORDINANCE NO. 45 - 2014                      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 RM-1 Multiple Family Residential. 

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I said it at the last one if there’s anything else anybody’s thought of since then otherwise I move that we bring Ordinance No. 45 – 2014 forward passage.

COUNCILMAN MANSON moved to bring Ordinance No. 44 – 2014 forward for passage, seconded by Councilman Chovan.

ORDINANCE NO. 45 – 2014 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilwoman Starrett.

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – Thank you, Mr. President, this ordinance would raise the cost of the stormwater utility fee from $1.00 to $2.00 beginning July 1, 2014.  I know there has been some concern with the fact that we did just raise the street lighting or we did just pass the street lighting fee and reduce the tax credit that we may be putting a lot on the citizens.  At this point I would just ask that we bring this forward for a vote. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, second by you have a question or you’re seconding Councilman Manson?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Question, answer, comment, comment, yeah, I would consider we’re talking about bringing it for what $2.00 right now?

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – It’s $1.00 it would go to $2.00.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – $1.00 to $2.00 and then again…

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – The next Ordinance No. 60 would go from $2.00 to $3.00 on January 1st, 2015. 

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Okay, so this is just $1.00 to $2.00?

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – Yes.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – And the other tier we’re talking about also.

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – Yes, it would raise the other tiers as well; the school properties.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – That’s all, that’s all my questions.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, councilwoman made her motion I need a second.  Is there a second?  Seconded by Councilman Manson.

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT moved to bring Ordinance No. 59 – 2014 forward for a vote, seconded by Councilman Manson.

ORDINANCE NO. 59 – 2014 WAS DEFEATED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 8 NO, 1 YES.  MANSON VOTED YES.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilwoman Starrett.

COUNCILWOMAN STARRETT – Thank you, Mr. President, this ordinance is exactly the same as the last one that was just defeated except it would raise the price of the stormwater fee to $3.00 on January 1st, 2015.  I barring any other questions I would ask that we this forward for a vote.

Authorizing the Mayor of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to enter into an agreement with Gallery 121 to provide an economic development “inducement grant” to assist the company in renovation expenses at 121 Lincoln Way West, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Thank you, Mr. President, as I said the last meeting when we had first reading I am 100% in support of this but I would like Mr. Oser to come in and talk at either the committee meeting or the next council meeting.  Because I do appreciate what he’s doing trying to restore that building.  So and I understand he was out of the town for a while.  So I’m just going to give that second reading tonight.  

ORDINANCE NO 67 – 2014 WAS GIVEN SECOND READING.  

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Thank you.

ORDINANCE NO. 70 - 2014                      BY:   PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMITTEE

Enacting CHAPTER 741 “OIL & GAS LEASING PROCEDURES” of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Massillon, and declaring an emergency.

Making certain appropriations from the unappropriated balance of the Local Law Enforcement Trust Fund, for the year ending December 31, 2014, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Lewis.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Yes, this particular ordinance is in reference to the funding of an upgrade to our cruisers and our police department so that they can upload their reports and other data from their cars into the server at the police station.  It allows them to have more mobile computing so that they can do things from the road instead of having to do everything back at the station.  I believe this is all coming from the trust fund so it’s not the local dollars or the general fund dollars that are funding this.  Are there any questions on this? 

COUNCILMAN LEWIS moved for suspension of the rules and passage, seconded by Councilwoman Scassa.

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

ORDINANCE NO. 73 – 2014 WAS PASSED BY A ROLL CALL VOTE OF 9 YES.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Thank you, Madame Clerk, Ordinance No. 73 has passed.
 
16.  NEW AND MISCELLANEOUS BUSINESS

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Is there any new or miscellaneous business?  Councilman Lewis?

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Yes, we did receive an email I think most of us did I believe from Mary Beth today stating that Council President Mr. Townsend would like to go into executive session to discuss matters of security.  And so there I make a motion that we go into executive session to discuss those matters and all members of council, the council president may be invited in.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Safety service director, police chief…

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Safety service director and the chief of police.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Oh law director.

 

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – And the law director. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, you made your motion, may I have a second to enter into executive session?  Seconded by Councilwoman Starrett.  Roll call to enter executive session.

Roll call vote of 7 yes, 2 no to go into executive session.  Chovan and Halter voted no.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay. Yes?

COUNCILWOMAN HALTER – Excuse me Mr. President, I’d like the law director to come forward please.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay.

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, Ms. Halter?

COUNCILWOMAN HALTER – Mr. Stergios, is this I thought we could only go into executive session for reasons of employment and…

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – Mr. Manson asked me right before the meeting what I thought and looking up in the sunshine law manual I think it’s debatable.  There’s a specific exception to discuss security but I don’t think it really I think it’s a stretch I don’t think there’s anything we shouldn’t discuss right here to be honest.  But I mean is it at the end of the world if you go in and you weren’t supposed to?  I don’t think it’s the end of the whole either. 

COUNCILWOMAN HALTER – But it would be against the sunshine law.

COUNCILMAN CHOVAN – If it violates the sunshine law it is.

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – I think I think it’s a stretch but I only had like five minutes to look at it.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I’d like to make a suggestion that motion be withdrawn and that we just talk about this for a week with the law director and bring it up at the committee meeting.  And if we should go into executive session we can do it at the evening of the committee meeting.  I don’t think there’s any emergency on this that I know of.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – I think the same rules would apply if we assume that it’s somehow in violation of the sunshine law it would be that today and next week.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Well I think that could be determined between now and then is what I was…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Well the reason I suggested well we can keep the names out so I mean that’s fine, that’s fine we don’t have to go.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – And…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – It was just a courtesy to you guys.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Yeah but and other than that then it would just becomes regular business to be discussed at a committee meeting.  Is what my thinking is here even though I voted to go into executive session if we’re going to have a controversy I think that we should just talk about it at the night of the committee meeting and put it off for right now.  And then investigate it and see if we do think it is a violation.  It’s not an emergency what we’re doing.  But that’s up to you if you want to withdraw your motion. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Councilman Chovan.

COUNCILMAN CHOVAN – Thank you, my question would just be if we discussed it at our committee meetings should it go through rules and courts?  I would assume.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Well that’s another…

COUNCILMAN CHOVAN – Or police and fire.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – I tell you what we could just drop it.  Because…

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Well we currently have a motion on the floor that’s been carried so we have to take action of some sort.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – And we going to have to take action I mean it was voted to go into executive session then I believe one of you guys would have to make a motion to rescind going into executive session.  Councilman Lewis.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – I would say in even though when I’ve read over some of the rules I had agree that security was the purpose of the executive session if our law director feels that it may be debatable it probably would be in the best interest of this body to review that section more clearly to make sure that we’re in complete compliance with sunshine laws.  I believe this would mean I have the motion to revisit since we already passed the motion I can’t rescind the motion we already passed it. 

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – I say rescind it.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS – Okay.

LAW DIRECTOR STERGIOS – Make a motion to rescind.

COUNCILMAN LEWIS moved to rescind the vote to go into executive session, seconded by Councilman Manson.

Roll call vote of 9 yes to rescind the motion to go into executive session.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Is there any new or miscellaneous business?  Councilman Manson?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Yes, I’d just like to comment on Ordinance No.  78 that passed I understand you know it was a split vote you know and I understand which people are looking at as far as trying to make our committees more significant.  I have no problem with that I just am not sure this was the direction when I think we should be looking at it all the time and trying to figure out a way to smoothly accomplish both things.  Because I really feel that we lost some back and forth conversation that we needed with all of us here at the table.  I know that we could voluntarily bring questions forward from wherever we were but I just felt that it kind of it kind of stifled discussion.  So that’s I just lets try to figure out another way to accomplish just what we’re talking about or what we want to accomplish there.  Because really the way we do it our committees are not that significant when we do it the way we were doing it up until January. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Is there anyone else.  Councilman Chovan?

COUNCILMAN CHOVAN – Yeah, if you read Ordinance No. 78 you go to section 2 Rule 8.1 I think the last sentence can kind of help us.  Any correspondence from a non-committee member shall be ushered through the committee chairperson and follow Roberts Rules of Order.  Personally the reason I liked it the new way we were doing it is because it does keep the people in the committee focused on the topic and Roberts Rules of Order is much easier to manage when there are three people talking than when there are nine people.  So as long as as long as the chairperson of that particular committee calls on the people to speak and recognize them without everybody just speaking out I think I think we can get some semblance of order of out this and still accomplish having the meetings you know with everybody sitting together at the meeting.  That’s just my opinion so. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Is there anyone else? 

17.  REMARKS OF DELEGATIONS AND CITIZENS TO ITEMS NOT ON THE AGENDA

COUNCIL PRESIDENT TOWNSEND – Okay, we have arrived at #17 this is the section of the agenda for anyone who would like to speak on a topic that does not appear on tonight’s agendas.  If you would like to speak on something please approach the microphone at this time and give your name and address and the topic you wish to discuss. 

18.  ADJOURNMENT

COUNCILWOMAN CUNNINGHAM-HEDDERLY – I move that we adjourn, seconded by Councilman Stinson.
