Committee Meeting Minutes
April 17, 2014

The Drainage & Infrastructure Committee met on Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mayfield Village Civic Hall. 

Present: Tom Cappello (Engineer), Steve Jerome (Council Representative), Doug Metzung (Service Director), Jerry Catalano (Resident Representative), and Tom Marsalis (Resident Representative)

Absent: Nick Delguyd (Council Representative) and Tom Marrie (Council Representative)

Susan Jerome (Committee Secretary)

Also in attendance were Mr. & Mrs. Schreiber residing at 925 Worton Park Dr.

Douglas Metzung, Service Director made an amendment to the agenda to include Phase II reporting and annual meeting. The Phase II report has been submitted for this year. Next year, in 2015, the Village will be submitting a new 5 year permit. He is expecting more changes and stricter guidelines from the EPA.

Schreiber 925 Worton Park Drive

Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained that N.E.O.R.S.D. was originally looking at funding this project. The program has been put on hold, while in litigation, so the request becomes a consideration for the D&I Committee to address.

Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained the scope of the project. The issue is the proximity of the creek to the garage and the ensuing damage. The garage floor and surrounding area are deteriorating from the water when the creek overflows. Initially, rocks were used to fortify the area but they have moved toward the creek and have not prevented water damage to the garage.

Mr. & Mrs. Schreiber hired I.A.Lewin and Associates (engineering firm) to do a study of the garage (attachment  A). He offered two possible causes for the garage floor sloping and cracking; one being damage from the overflow of the creek. He also offered three possible solutions. A creek wall was offered as one possible solution.  Discussion was held on the construction of a creek wall to help avoid further damage from the water.

Tom Cappello, Village Engineer, said the area is FEMA controlled because it is in a floodplain. The Village would have to follow their guidelines so the height of the water doesn’t rise. Tom Cappello also offered other repair options that were discussed to include slurry or removal of the garage floor to stabilize it with fill dirt.

The committee decided to go to the site before making any recommendations. The scheduled visit is April 29, 2014 at 9:00 a.m.

Mackie 6206 N. Woodlane

Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained this project is addressing stream bank erosion. It was originally approved in 2012. The work was postponed so that it could be presented to N.E.O.R.S.D. for possible funding. The sewer district recommended monitoring of the situation at that time. The D&I Committee will be addressing the concerns, once again, in lieu of the litigation the sewer district is involved in regarding project funding.  

Discussion of the problem was held to assign an evaluation on the point system used by the committee. The overall score was nine. The committee will be visiting the property on April 29, 2014 for further evaluation of the project.

Rodriguez 6451 Derby Drive

Doug Metzung, Service Director, said the committee will need to assess his request. The two culvert pipes are deteriorating which will eventually block the drainage completely. The potential for future problems is imminent. Concrete slabs have been used in the past to no avail.

The committee will visit the property on April 29, 2014 for further assessment of the problem.

Horvath 6483 Highland Rd.

Doug Metzung, Service Director, explained that a 6” storm drain could be installed, in the front, that will connect to the main on Highland Road. That should alleviate the problem with the water on her driveway.

The meeting adjourned at 8:14 p.m.
