COMMENTS FROM MAYOR BODNAR:

  • Presentation of Proclamation of Congratulations to Jim Mason

Mayor Bodnar stated, I have the honor tonight of presenting a Proclamation to long-time Village resident Jim Mason for his service to Northeast Ohio.

Mayor Bodnar read the Proclamation Congratulating James L. Mason on receiving the In Tribute to Public Service Award from Cleveland State University’s Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs.

  • Administration of Oaths of Office
    • Ordinance Review Committee:  Paul Fikaris
    • Planning and Zoning:  David L. Hoehnen

Mayor Bodnar administered the oaths of office to Paul Fikaris (Ordinance Review Committee) and David Hoehnen (Planning and Zoning).

Mayor Bodnar stated, in our packets on Friday, we received a letter from the Regional Transit Authority indicating that as a result of some major budget cuts they have had to make, they are looking at eliminating and reducing some routes.  One of those routes they are looking to shorten is bus number 7 which currently runs east from Richmond Road and Wilson Mills down Wilson Mills, down SOM and circulates around Beta Drive.  They are looking to eliminate that part of the route.  We have a lot of people who use that route to get to work.  Students also use that route to get to downtown. I will be looking into that.  Hopefully we can work together to prevent them from closing down that end of the route.

COMMENTS FROM COUNCIL PRESIDENT SAPONARO:

  • Standing Rules of Council

Council President Saponaro stated, we have started a discussion as Council regarding some Standing Rules. We will continue to work on those.

  • Council Healthcare

Council President Saponaro stated, there was also discussion that was brought regarding healthcare for Council members.  Currently as it stands, the Mayor receives healthcare as an elected official.  Yes, you are, you are entitled to it.

Mr. Wynne replied, no.

Mr. Jerome stated, entitled to.

Mayor Bodnar stated, no, I don’t, I’m not entitled to it.

Council President Saponaro asked, so, then Bruce was receiving it for years?

Mr. Wynne stated, he hasn’t for the past several.

Council President Saponaro stated, okay, that’s interesting.  Well, the Mayor at some point was receiving it.  Excuse me, but the previous Mayor was receiving it for a number of years so I’m not really sure how that happened but, be that as it may, elected officials do not get healthcare.  We are subject to PERS and one of the discussions that is going to be brought to Caucus is about healthcare and how it can be provided to the elected officials.  So, it is an open item that we will be discussing and will, obviously will look through the Minutes and if anyone has any questions or comments on that, I am sure that we will be more than happy to hear them.

  • Local Government Officials’ Conference

Council President Saponaro stated, Mr. Marquardt, Mrs. Betsa and I will be attending this conference.  We will be there for the next three days. We hope to get some information concerning other Standing Rules and information that can help us govern more efficiently and effectively.

DEPARTMENT HEAD REPORTS:

Diane Wolgamuth (Administration) – Just a reminder that VOV submissions are due on April 8th.

Planning (Ted Esborn) – I mentioned at the Caucus meeting that unfortunately negotiations between Magnus Equipment and the owners of 600 Beta have stalled. Fortunately, the subject of tonight’s CEDC meeting was a new potential tenant. I wanted to mention but I forgot to, the meeting we had scheduled with Cuyahoga County to discuss a loan for Magnus Equipment was cancelled.  So that meeting did not happen between Magnus and Cuyahoga County and I did not attend it.

John Marrelli (Building)

Architectural Review Board – There was no meeting. There is no report.

Board of Appeals – Board of Appeals met last week.  There were several variances granted to build the last home at SOM Court near SOM Center.

Council President Saponaro asked, does anyone have any questions regarding that? 

There were none.

Mary Betsa (Council) – Upcoming seminars include: Fraud Prevention and Detection being held by the Auditor of State on April 13th in Parma; and Ethics being held by the Ohio Ethics Commission on June 1st in Strongsville.  Please let me know if you wish to attend either of those training sessions.

Tom Cappello (Engineer) – Updating on the 2015 Water and Roadway Project over at Glenview, Bonnieview and Beech Hill, the contractor was off over the winter.  We have a tentative schedule for him. They plan on starting work next Monday.  Ms. Wolgamuth will be preparing a memo to the residents explaining what is going to happen in the next few months.

Ronald Wynne (Finance) – The auditors have pulled out of the field.  They are working on their report in their office.  It’s now in the hands of the State for final review. Once they are completed, the audit report will be made available to the public.

Chief Eugene Carcioppolo (Fire) – We offered a position to an individual to fill the spot of our retiring fireman who will be leaving in the next few months.  He has accepted and should be starting by the end of the month.   I would like to get him officially sworn in at the next Council meeting.

Mark Guidetti (Legal) – There was no report.

William Thomas (Parks and Recreation) –  Everyone should be aware of our exciting opportunity that we are moving Cruise Night and the Fourth of July down to Progressive Campus II and our soccer fields. Hopefully everyone saw the front cover of our brochure reminding you that we are moving down there.  It is an opportunity for us to take advantage of the new construction going on at the new Community Room.  We lost a lot of land there where we have the DJ and about 300-400 people actively involved in that area. We are moving it down and will try it out and see how it goes. We also had our annual Easter Party and Egg Hunt this past Saturday. For the first time in 18 years, I have never seen anything like it, we had approximately 145 children participate. That’s probably three times more than what we normally get.  Add that to grandparents and parents that were there and we are probably talking over 350 people in the Community Room. It was nice because we had the fire truck there to set off the siren for all of the hunts we had. We had four hunts, 2 and under, 3 and 4 year old, 5-7 and 8-11.  If we had had the Fire Department come into the Community Room, we would have closed down.  We thank Gino for staying outside with the Fire Truck.  It was a wonderful event.  I give credit to our Rec Board who put in a lot of time in planning and everything. The thing that was unbelievable about it was we had no rain. I don’t think we had any rain last week because the grass was bone dry. It was just a wonderful event to have on our front grass, the little grass that we have.  It was just a wonderful event.  We will discuss our evaluation with the Rec Board at our next April meeting.

Senior Services –

In your packet everyone should have received the very comprehensive senior survey that was put together by Mayor Bodnar, Diane and Donna.

Council President Saponaro stated, I do have to say 50 and over, those of us who are fairly 50 and over.  I never consider myself a senior, but I appreciate it.  I am not really sure how 50 equals senior.  50 is the new 30.

Mr. Thomas stated, we wanted to send that to everybody because you may have a parent. You may be 40-50 years of age but have a parent that may need some of these services.  We are reaching out.

Council President Saponaro stated, well played Bill, well played.

Mr. Thomas stated, so the survey is not only intended for our seniors, but children of our seniors who may need services. In addition, we are also bringing back our Senior Fair that we did about 2 years ago.  I do want to remind you.  I thought it was good on Mayor Bodnar and Diane and Donna, we have offered the Senior Fair between 11:00-1:00.  We had pizza and stuff. Now we are offering that time from 5:00-7:00 so you can come as a child of a senior.  Hopefully we are going to draw more people in. We will be in the Community Room.  We are looking forward to having that.  That will be on August 26th from 5:00-7:00.  The other two items I wanted to talk about:  Reminding everybody about the Memorial Day Celebration that is going to be on Sunday, May 27th.   There will be a Lunch N Learn on Wednesday, March 30th sponsored by Kendra.  The program is on Music and Fashion Through the Ages.  Another one is scheduled for Wednesday, April 6th about trips, activities and programs offered by the Senior Activity Center.  Hopefully people will take advantage of that. Donna does a great job in offering a lot of programs. The Anniversary Party for Mayfield Village Seniors 60 and over will be Friday, April 8th at the Civic Center. Reservations are due by March 31st. The next CPA Lunch N Movie will be held on April 13th.  The movie is Brooklyn. The April foot clinics are scheduled for Friday the 8th at the Community Room and on the 22nd here at the Civic Center because we are getting ready to move everybody out of there the week before.  The trip to the Tea Room in Burton scheduled for April 20th is sold out.  Last but not least, the next Lunch N Movie at Governor’s Village will be on Wednesday, April 20th.  The movie is The Help.

Chief Richard Edelman (Police) – A Civil Service Commission meeting was scheduled for March 16th to discuss the upcoming entry level police exam.  It was decided at that time to use the same testing company we have used in the past, I/O Solutions. Mrs. Betsa and the Commission are currently working on coordinating a date for the test.  I will keep you advised.

Douglas Metzung (Service)

At the last meeting a month ago, a comment came up regarding the trees along the exit of I-271 northbound.  I asked my arborist to check into it.  He told me that we moved those trees because they were underneath the CEI powerlines.  That’s where the trees went.  Also, our salt supply, it appears we are going to be about 300 tons too many. We will be looking at options for that for the upcoming month.

Council President Saponaro stated, all right. You will keep us posted, I am sure.

Committee Reports:

Activities Committee – Mrs. Mills – Our next meeting is April 12th at 6:45 here.  In cooperation, the Mayfield Village Garden Club is sponsoring Arbor Day on April 29th at 9:00 at the Fire Station area.  The children from Center School will be there to help plant another tree. We planted about 3 trees in the past.  This will be the 4th tree we have planted.  It’s really a nice program.  I think everyone should come and participate.  It takes about not even a half hour. The children have their own little Garden Club.  They have poems and stories that they share about Arbor Day. It really is a nice program.

Cemetery – Mrs. Mills – There was no report.

Citizens Advisory Committee – Mr. Williams – Our Committee met on February 29th. We had a Grove presentation by Garry Regan.  He provided a very thorough and entertaining view of the calendar for 2016.  It sounds like it’s going to be another exciting year.  He also talked about improvements being made at The Grove.  Everyone had a lot of questions and are looking forward to the new season.  Our next meeting is March 22nd.

Commission on Aging - Mrs. Mills

Bill mentioned the Senior Anniversary Luncheon which is a very nice lunch. It will be held here.  What he say was about the Pickleball tournament.  Do you want to explain that?

Mr. Thomas stated, we have a Senior Pickleball tournament for 50 and over scheduled on April 16th at the Wildcat Sport and Fitness Center. I give credit to Ralph Tarsitano and his wife Mary for organizing and doing a great job of getting people involved in that program. We held one in the Fall.  I am sure the attendance will double.  I think we had 32 participants in the Fall.  I think we will have 64. 

Mrs. Mills continued, the cards and activities held in the Community Room will be meeting at St. Bartholmew’s until the new Community Room is complete.  Watercolor will be meeting here at the Civic Center.

Community Economic Development Committee - Mr. Saponaro – We met this evening. On the agenda we discussed a new company that is looking to come into the Village. We have agreed as a Committee to extend our incentive program to them as well.  Mr. Esborn will then follow up with the results on that.

Historical Society - Mrs. Mills – We have been taking orders for the Fisher book. We have sold about 20 so far.  It’s going very well. Our next tour for the 3rd grade children is in two weeks.  We are kind of winding up with that, with the third grade tours.

The next meeting is April 13th at 12:00. After the meeting, Mary Beth and I will be attending the session being held by the Auditor of State on Fraud Detection and Prevention in Parma. 

Council President Saponaro asked, when is Shred Day?

Mrs. Mills replied, in May.

Mr. Thomas replied, May 14th

Mrs. Betsa clarified, Mayor Bodnar and Debbie Garbo will be attending the seminar as well.

Mayor Bodnar stated, I will be joining you at the Fraud Prevention seminar.

Mrs. Mills stated, we will remind everybody in April and May again about Shred Day.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.  Thank you.

Recreation Board - Mr.  Marrie – Mr. Thomas reported on Mr. Marrie’s behalf. We also had Garry Regan come to our meeting and provide a presentation on The Grove. We also discussed the Easter Party and Egg Hunt.  We will have a lot to talk about at our next meeting.  The Debbie Hudacko Scholarship Interviews will be held on Wednesday, April 13th.  There are approximately 11 Mayfield High School Seniors who qualify for the interviews.  Bill reported that he and Ted are working on a grant from Natureworks for the Intergenerational Park South of the Parkview Softball Fields.  Councilman Marrie sworn in three new Recreation Board members:  Aaron Cauntner, Patti Fioritto and Laura Prcela. The next meeting is Wednesday, April 20th.

Safety and Service - Mr. Marrie –  Mr. Jerome reported on Mr. Marrie’s behalf. One item we discussed a couple weeks ago was the possibility of a sidewalk on Wilson Mills continuing from its terminus at Hanover down to Village Trails and the possibility of widening and replacing the existing sidewalk.  Right now, I am talking to a resident, Paul Klatte, who lives in Village Trails. He canvassed his neighbors and Village Circle. There was a consensus of people who wanted it over there. I have advised him to talk to some people on Wilson Mills that actually will be affected if we were to do something with the sidewalk. He is following through on that.  We will wait to see what we hear back.

Sewer Liaison - Mr. Jerome – There was no meeting. There is no report.

The Grove Committee - Mr. Jerome – We are ready to install the permeable pavers as long as Council approves that.  We are ready to enter into a contract with Rosenberg Advertising to provide the marketing services.  They did a great job last year and want to do a great job again this year.  Also, we are scheduling a meeting sometime in early April for The Grove Committee.  Currently, the first row of stone seating is installed.  We are ready to pass the budget and send out contracts for all the great artists that will be performing this year.  We will be looking forward to it.  Thank you.

Wage Review - Mr. Saponaro – There was no meeting. There is no report.

Mr. Jerome asked for some of the highlights of the changes after the Caucus meeting. 

Mr. Wynne stated, we have it budgeted to take the traffic light signal at SOM and Sandalwood and convert that from flashing lights into a regular traffic light.  We are looking at putting audible traffic signals at the intersections of SOM and Sandalwood, SOM and Wilson Mills and SOM and Seneca.  We had originally planned to just put signage in front of the Civic Center. We are now going to do signage in front of the Civic Center as well as the new Community Room. We are going to add additional light poles in the parking lot here at the Civic Center towards the back of the lot where it is darker. We removed the tennis courts and expanded parking lot at the softball complex for future years.  We have added some additional pricing on the pool heater building and the sidewalk snow plow. The budget was adjusted to reflect those actual costs.

Mr. Cappello stated, back in November, Council passed a resolution for approximately $80,000 for additional work beyond what ODOT would be responsible for for the resurfacing of SOM Center Road from Wilson Mills to the South Corporation line.  That $80,000 included joint and base repair that we feel will be necessary and also some curb repair.  ODOT sent us their resolution that needs to be passed, the contract and fiscal officer’s certification and an invoice.  They need the resolution passed by April 4th, so it needs to be passed tonight in title.  This is to do additional work that they did not feel was required under their responsibility. They will be paying for the resurfacing from face of curb to face of curb in that whole area.

Council President Saponaro asked, are there any questions?  There were none.

Council President Saponaro asked, did everyone hear that?  Tommy Marrie had a pacemaker put in today.  He will be staying overnight at the hospital obviously to make sure that everything’s okay. We will keep you updated. I am sure he is going to be fine, but it certainly would not hurt to keep him in our thoughts.

Mr. Thomas stated, Dave Perout’s mother, our Pool Manager, his mother passed away.

Mrs. Mills asked, when was that?

Mr. Thomas replied, Saturday.

Council President Saponaro asked, anything else? 

There was no further business to discuss.
