The Council of Mayfield Village met in Regular Session on Monday, October 19, 2015 at Mayfield Village Civic Hall. Council President Marrie called the meeting to order at 8:00 p.m.

SWEARING IN CEREMONY:

  • SERGEANT JOHN ARGIE
  • Mayfield Village Police Department

Mayor Rinker stated, this is kind of celebratory. We normally do not have more people than Roll Call so this is kind of a nice event.   It is my privilege to do a little ceremonial swearing in tonight of a new Sergeant. Officer Argie didn’t really go through the conventional route. I think the basic training defies description. We won’t go into it, but I think it’s kind of interesting. When he finally decided though that he wanted to be an officer, it’s real clear that he really made up his mind and didn’t want to just succeed but to excel. We forgive you for leaving Mayfield Village for a while, but you came back. We are very glad that you did. The highest score on the test by the way, so both booksmart and people smart.

Mayor Rinker administered the oath of office to Sergeant John Argie.

Council President Marrie stated, we will take a break for refreshments and cake to celebrate Sergeant Argie’s promotion. Congratulations.

Council took a break at 8:05 p.m.

Council reconvened at 8:15 p.m.

OPEN PORTION:

3-minute limit imposed by Chair. Those who wish to speak must first state their name and address.

John Michalko
6852 Wilson Mills Road

Thanks to the Fire Department, Police Department and Service Department for the great service they gave us right across the street from my house during that gas blowout. Thank you all for a great job well done.

Council President Marrie thanked Mr. Michalko. Thank you very much for taking the time to come up to do that.

Mrs. Mills stated, I had a couple calls from residents. They are requesting that when these disasters are over with, would Code Red please call and acknowledge that everyone is safe? Is that a possibility?

Chief Edelman replied, that probably just slipped through the cracks. We will do that.

Mrs. Mills added, especially with a gas leak. This one person was in Pennsylvania when he got his Code Red and he was very concerned when he came home if everything is going to be all right. If that’s a possibility, I think we should entertain that thought.

Council President Marrie stated, I think it’s a very good idea. We were out of town also. Our first thought was, who to call?

Mrs. Mills stated, I have to say, when I went down the street at 9:30 in the morning, one big truck was out in the road in front of the one house west of Oakwood. No traffic control or anything. They were just letting the cars go around it.

Mayor Rinker stated, we love the City of Cleveland Water Department.

Mrs. Mills stated, that’s the water company for you. They had a lot of equipment on Oakwood to begin with. I don’t know how you control the water company, Doug, do you know?

Mr. Metzung replied, that’s just subcontractors.

Mrs. Mills stated, that was just my thoughts, but I think that Code Red should advise that everyone is safe.

Mayor Rinker agreed. An all-clear.

Council President Marrie stated, I think it’s wonderful. I think Code Red in itself is a wonderful situation.

Mrs. Mills agreed. They were not unhappy, but what happened was when they got home they called the Police Department and they think that was an unnecessary call if Code Red would have come through. The question was how many people called to see if they could stay in their houses, calling the Fire Department or you and the Police Department.

Chief Edelman stated, the people that needed to be evacuated were evacuated.

Mrs. Mills stated, just concerned citizens, that’s all.

Chief Edelman replied, no problem.

Mrs. Mills stated, thank you.

COMMENTS FROM MAYOR RINKER

There were no comments.

COMMENTS FROM COUNCIL PRESIDENT MARRIE

There were no comments.

DEPARTMENT HEAD REPORTS:                          

SERVICE – Doug Metzung

Mr. Metzung reported, we are looking to start leaf pick-up on Wednesday. We have a couple of projects to finish up and then we will begin on Wednesday.

BUILDING – John Marrelli

Mr. Marrelli stated, I will reserve comments until the agenda items.

ENGINEERING – Tom Cappello

There was no report.

LEGAL DEPARTMENT – Mr. Diemert

There was no report.

FIRE – Chief Eugene Carcioppolo

Chief Carcioppolo gave an update on the govdeals.com sales. We sold the 1989 ambulance for $1226.26.   That was towed away the other day. The four-way stoplight sold for $520. They are coming to get that eventually. The civil defense siren sold for $260 and the old manlift that has not been certified or checked in a long time sold for $610. Lieutenant Palumbo, who was recently promoted, was the officer in charge at the gas leak. He was first on scene. We were on an ambulance call. I responded and helped him once I got there. Highland Heights came and assisted us. Everything went very well. Everyone did a good job. I was very proud of him. He did a very good job.

Council President Marrie asked, was it the contractor who tore up one of the lines or something?

Chief Carcioppolo reported, Cleveland Water had subcontracted with a company called Utilicon to install a fire hydrant. They did have it marked but the marking was off by about 5 feet. They pierced the 4-inch pressure line which they estimated to be about 90 psi. They ran into some issues with shutting it down which is why it took between 4-5 hours to actually stop the leak so they could repair it.

FINANCE – Ron Wynne

There was no report.

POLICE – Chief Richard Edelman

Chief Edelman reiterated what the Fire Chief and John mentioned earlier about the response of the emergency services on Saturday.   I am extremely proud of my officers and the Fire Department personnel. We all came together to make this as little if any inconvenience as possible for the residents. It worked out the way it should. Unfortunately, we were at the mercy of Dominion and it took them a little longer than we would have liked for them to shut off the gas, but they got the job done and no one was hurt and we are thankful for that.

Council President Marrie congratulated both departments for keeping the residents safe. That’s the most important thing, even though it might have taken longer than you thought it should have.

Chief Edelman stated, they have to follow protocol and make sure they are safe and everyone else is safe.

Chief Edelman continued, the other thing I wanted to discuss tonight is the next step in the process of meetings I have had with the Mayor and Mr. Wynne about additional manpower for the Police Department. We discussed this at Safety and Service and Finance. The overall picture is that I am asking Council to increase my budget for 2016 for two additional full-time officers. In a more immediate sense, I have an eligibility list for patrol officer that expires on November 8th and if Council will consider it, I would like to have one of the positions made available immediately so I can take advantage of that eligibility list.

Council President Marrie stated, we will have that on the agenda for this evening.

PARKS & RECREATION – Bill Thomas

Mr. Thomas reported, I wanted to add with regard to the leak on Saturday, the Police Department opened up this room for residents if they needed to come up here. It was manned by the CERT team. Well done.

Reporting on Parks and Recreation, Halloween is in the air! This past Friday night we had 200 middle school students attend our 12th Annual Wildcat Teen Halloween Event at Wildcat Sport & Fitness. We worked closely with the Middle School in marketing the event. We also had 20 Key Club members collecting tickets for the inflatables, games and serving refreshments. We also had a DJ, photobooth, volleyball and knockout basketball and other fun activities. The 17th Annual Halloween Window Painting Contest is taking place right now. We have 74 students from St. Francis, St. Paschal’s and the Middle School participating with 45 windows from Eastgate to just about all of our stores on the corners of SOM and Wilson Mills with the exception of Deacon Chrysler. They don’t have an overhang on their windows. We had to secure 4 additional stores in Highland Heights. We have never gone that far. Judging takes place this Thursday with our very own Councilwoman Patsy Mills who has judged since the inception of this program since 1999. Thank you Patsy. The Healthy Mayfield Committee has planned tomorrow night, October 20th, from 7:00-9:00 at the Mayfield High School Auditorium Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Ann Crile Esselstyn talking about the advantages of a plant-based diet. I have fliers on the table in the back if you are interested in that. On Saturday, November 7th at 10:00 a.m. in the Parkview Pool parking lot, Mayor Rinker will be doing one of his remaining few recreation special events before he leaves office by leading a walk on the Greenway Trail. He will discuss the plans and visions for this area and hear suggestions from our residents on what they would like to see. If the weather is inclement, we will program the Mayfield Village Weather Hotline at 9:30 a.m. sharp to say that the event has been cancelled. I have a flier for that on the back table.

Reporting on Senior Services, the next Lunch n’ Movie is November 4th. A special program regarding dementia will be held this Friday at 1:00 p.m. in the Civic Center. Michelle Tarsitano-Amato of Kendal at Oberlin will be the speaker. A Lunch n’ Learn on leading a brain healthy lifestyle will be held next Friday at Noon at the Civic Center. The next trip is Wednesday to the Western Reserve Historical Society. We have 194 snow removal applications for single driveways and 20 for circular driveways to date.

ARCHITECT – Ron DiNardo

There was no report.

PLANNING DEPARTMENT - Ted Esborn

Mr. Esborn reported, I anticipate finding out this week whether two grant applications we filed all the way back in February with ODNR’s Recreational Trails program will be funded. That was one for a trailhead just north of the Fire Station and one for a piece of equipment to maintain the trail. Historically this is the week when ODNR releases their list of grantees. There is no guarantee that it is going to be this week but I should be able to inform Council by November Caucus whether we have received any funding.

ADMINISTRATION – Diane Wolgamuth

Ms. Wolgamuth reminded everyone that the next meeting on November 2nd will be held in Reserve Hall as this room will be used for Election Day.

STANDING COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Activities Committee – Mrs. Mills reported, the next meeting is November 10th at 6:45 at the Civic Center.

Architectural Review Board – Mr. Marrelli reported, the Board met last Thursday and approved the room addition for a resident.

Board of Appeals –Mr. Marrelli stated, there was no meeting. There was no report.

Cemetery – Mrs. Mills reported, the cemetery is very quiet. Roger Remec has gone to Florida. The cemetery has gone to sleep for the season.

Citizen's Advisory Committee – Mr. Williams reported, Citizen’s Advisory met on October 12th at the Historical House. Our guest speaker was Mayor Bruce Rinker who provided a historical recap of his time as Mayor and his vision of the future for the Village. It was a very very well done presentation. Thank you Mr. Mayor. Our next meeting will be held on November 9th at Governor’s Village.

Drainage and Infrastructure Committee – Mr. Jerome reported, we are working hard on drainage and infrastructure. The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for Monday, November 2nd before Caucus.

Safety and Service – Council President Marrie reported, we met prior to Caucus. All of the items on the agenda are on tonight’s agenda.

Finance Committee – Mr. Saponaro reported, Finance met before Council Caucus as well as this evening. We had 17 items on the agenda which were all recommended for approval and moved to the Council floor.

Historical Society – Mrs. Mills reported, tomorrow night the Northeast Ohio Consortium of Historical Societies is going to be meeting at the Federal Reserve Bank. We will be going.

Hillcrest Council of Councils – Mr. Jerome stated, there was no meeting. There is no report.

Ordinance Review Committee – Mr. Marquardt reported, Ordinance Review met on October 13th. There were two items on the agenda. The first item had to do with animals and fowl, specifically chicken coops which is difficult to go into with a straight face, but it’s on the agenda tonight for First Reading. The second item under discussion was the proposed change in the structuring of the Drainage and Infrastructure Committee. I invite the Council members to read the Minutes for Ordinance Review for the logic presented. Ordinance Review feels that the underlying logic between the current structuring of having Council-At-Large on the Committee is sound and unless there’s some better logic put forward, they recommend that it stay as it is.

Planning and Zoning – Mr. Marquardt reported, Planning and Zoning met on October 5th. There were two items on the agenda. One is a conditional use permit for Deacon’s Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for a pre-owned vehicle detailing center on Beta Drive and is currently in existence which was in a temporary position and they are asking that a conditional use permit be granted for that facility permanently. The second item is a lot split and dedication plat on Campus III drive. This is kind of a clean up action for the Progressive Insurance Company for access into their undeveloped property.

Recreation Board – Mr. Marrie reported, Recreation Board will meet this Wednesday at 7:00 in the Civic Center. One of the items discussed will be the annual children’s Halloween Party which is Saturday, October 24th from 1:30-3:00. It’s a really big thing for the kids. Also, we welcome any volunteers willing to give us their time. Also, we will be discussing the rates for the 2016 Parkview Pool season.

Commission on Aging – Mrs. Mills reported, the next meeting is Thursday, November 12th at 11:00 a.m. at the Senior Services office. The agenda will include a recap of all trips, discussion about the 2016 trips, Lunch n’ Learn programs, Fall classes and the Holiday Party. We will also be having the art display from the Watercolor Classes around the second week in November through December. We all should come and look at the display. Those people are very talented.

SPECIAL COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Information & Technology – There was no report.

Records Commission – Mrs. Mills reported, departments are getting ready to send some of their permanent records over to our off-site storage facility. Shred Day is scheduled for May 14, 2016. House Bill 9 Training will be scheduled in May 2016 at Reserve Hall. Newly-elected or re-elected Council and the newly-elected Mayor are required to attend that class. They can also take the class on-line. We will provide instructions in January.

Community and Economic Development - Mr. Saponaro reported, Community and Economic Development met this evening to discuss the Freedonia Agreement that has been ongoing since July. We talked about the status of that Agreement. We also discussed generally a better way for us to handle these types of actions so that the companies we are dealing with are being attended to. We had a lively discussion on that. There will be Minutes to that effect. Also, the Mayor provided a memo to us regarding our Committee and the Ad Hoc nature of it. Just to give you, Mayor, some information, the Committee was not meeting on a regular basis. Once we had a discussion with Mr. Esborn, there were a lot of economic development items brought up to our attention as Council. We all felt it was worthwhile to sit on a monthly basis for anything that’s potential so that Council is brought in on a ground floor basis so that we can get on board and find out what’s going on with any current economic development. That’s the reason for having meetings on a monthly basis.

The Grove Committee – Mr. Jerome reported, the Committee is filling in the gaps for our schedule next year at The Grove. We are discussing infrastructure improvements. Diane and Grove Chair Garry Reagan are finalizing a presentation for Council for November 2nd to discuss where we have been, where we are at and what we want to see at The Grove.

Community Room Committee – Mr. Saponaro reported, the Community Room Committee will be meeting on November 2nd at 5:00. We are going to discuss interior purchases.

Council President Marrie asked, is the construction on schedule?

Ms. Wolgamuth replied, yes. They lost a few days because of bad soil. At this point, the foundations have been poured. We are pretty much on schedule. They found a few items when they were digging.

Mr. Marrelli stated, there were some soft areas and gravel backfill from a removed vessel.
