LEGAL DEPARTMENT – Diane Calta

FIRE – Chief Eugene Carcioppolo

Chief Carcioppolo reported, I mentioned this before, but we received the regional grant for SCBA’s.  We put out requests for proposals for SCBA manufacturers. We should be receiving it by the end of the month and most likely next month I will have legislation to pass to funnel the funds through Northfield Village.  I wanted to keep everyone informed.  There is 90% coverage on the federal and 10% on our end to replace the packs that we have.  All the bottles were expiring within the next two years so we were going to have to look at replacing them anyways.  They are about 15 years behind the times in terms of safety standards. 

Also, I went to Minnesota on Thursday and Friday for a pre-build meeting with the fire truck manufacturer. We went through the entire spec on the vehicle.  I wanted to make sure everything we expected to get is going to be received.  The paint will match.

Council President Pro Tem Marrie congratulated Chief Carcioppolo on the grant.

Chief Carcioppolo replied, it was regional.  It wasn’t me. 

Council President Pro Tem Marrie stated, you were the one who took the lead. Congratulations.

FINANCE – Ron Wynne

Mr. Wynne mentioned, the bond refunding Council approved on July 7th will be closing this Wednesday.

POLICE – Chief Richard Edelman

Chief Edelman stated, you may have noticed we have changed the parking on North Commons between Parkview and White Roads. We have restricted daytime parking between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to two hours.   We did this to make the parking more available for the people playing soccer.  This is a project that I worked with Progressive management on. They were fully on board with this.  I did a lot of pass throughs before we did this.  There is more than enough parking for their employees.  This was done with the safety of people playing soccer in mind.  We have been doing this for about two weeks now. It is going well and has been received very well.

Chief Edelman continued, the State of Ohio about 8 months ago initiated a program called MARCS in schools. They are providing a MARCS radio in every school building in Ohio.  It is a last ditch emergency effort to contact law enforcement and police and fire in the case of a catastrophe. Realistically everyone has a cellphone and if anything happens at any of our schools, dispatch is going to light up like a Christmas tree.  But this is something the State felt they needed to undertake for the safety of the schools, staff and children. We have agreed to house the MARCs radio for the schools in our dispatch center for the entire Mayfield District. So if a call comes in from any of our schools or Highland Heights or Mayfield Heights Schools, we will answer that call and will dispatch accordingly.

Lastly, Chief Edelman reminded everyone that the second week in August begins the International Gay Games in the Cleveland area. This is a huge event in the Greater Cleveland area. Our racquet club on Beta Drive will be one of the venues for the games. We anticipate about 75 athletes per day during the course of the games. It’s free for anyone to come and watch the athletes. These are world class athletes. I think it’s going to be a great time and great for the Cleveland area.

Mr. Saponaro asked, who is going to be the Resource Officer at the Schools?

Chief Edelman replied, Stuart Galicz, one of our patrolmen, was working with Bill this whole summer.  He will be taking over the reins.

Mr. Jerome stated, big shoes to fill. Chief Edelman agreed.

Council President Pro Tem Marrie thanked Chief Edelman, especially on the safety features.

 PARKS & RECREATION – Bill Thomas

Adding to Chief Edelman’s report, Mr. Thomas stated, it is strange to see an empty North Commons Blvd. without any cars on it during the day.  It’s a wonderful situation.

I wanted to give a public thank you. We have our annual Debbie Hudacko Run.  It was the 25th this year. About 2 years ago, we added to what we already had, a five mile run and a two mile walk. We added a 5k run and 2 mile run to the other 5 mile run we offer. As a result, that brought a greater need for sentries throughout the race routes we have throughout the park and wherever we run.  I always count on Key Club to help out. We normally have between 10-15.  This year I only had 2.  I talked to Rick Whitehead during Cruise Night when I saw the CERT organization there and asked if they would be interested. We borrowed their walkie talkies last year but we didn’t have any volunteer support.  It would have been very difficult for us this year to do the runs without the CERT’s support. Those individuals, I just wanted to publicly thank:

Jerry Banks, Paul Berne, Ginny Callen, Pat Gregoric, Joe Skoda, Diane Tripodo, and Theresa Whitehead

Those individuals were there and were an immense help in keeping our runners safe and on track on all of the courses.  I can’t overstate enough how appreciative I was of those individuals. Thank you.

Everyone should have received in their packets the enrollment figures for Parkview. I also mentioned in there that we have a new computerized system that we use in our office.  We got it for our seniors’ program. After 16 years we said goodbye to our integrated precision system.  It really did not have the capability that our computer system now has. We are very pleased how that is working now.  Our numbers were good for June. We had a very hot dry spell. After opening a week later than last year, our numbers were still higher than in 2013.

Last but not least, our Senior Report. We had 25 people attend our AARP Smart Driving Class on June 18th. We took an excursion to Marietta on July 16th where we had a narrated Lolly Trolly tour of Marietta, had lunch at Henderson Hall, an impressive pre-Civil War mansion in West Virginia.  I truly enjoyed it.  I took a vacation day.  The next trip is August 6th aboard the Goodtime III. That trip is sold out.  The next foot clinic is Friday, August 8th from 1:00-3:00 in the Community Room. The next Lunch N Movie is August 13th.  The movie is Nebraska.  Registration is underway for our knitting and crocheting class which begins on August 15th.

Mr. Jerome asked, with regard to the pool, the amount of people that go compared to capacity, we are pretty strong and are doing good?

Mr. Thomas replied, for the month of June. It all depends on weather.

Mr. Jerome stated, so every year it fluctuates. But overall, since Parkview Pool opened, it has been very well attended?

Mr. Thomas replied, I think so. We get a lot of evening rentals.  I remember 16 years ago sitting in the back Council room with Council asking whether it is worth having lights for night swimming?  The experience I had in other communities I worked was very successful.  Just about every weekend there is an association or private party using it.  From that standpoint, we do well. The numbers depend on the weather. We have Progressive employees that use it.  We opened it up to their families.  It is well attended by them.

Mr. Jerome stated, the more people helps with passes. 

Mr. Thomas replied, we also open it up to the school district. Anyone out of the district pays $10.00.

Mr. Jerome asked, they would have to be a guest of someone from the school district?  Not just anyone can show up and get in?

Mr. Thomas replied, depending on our enrollment, we can allow non-school district residents. We charge them $10.  We also use it for camps.

Mr. Jerome stated, it’s nice to get as much use out of it as you can.

Mrs. Mills asked, what was the swim meet on Sunday?

Mr. Thomas replied, that was the Summer Sizzler. We had about 200 swimmers.

Mr. Esborn reported, the SWIF grant is on the agenda for this evening. I will talk about it then.

They have auditions going on this evening.  On Friday, August 1st, they are going to hold their first Improv comedy show here in Reserve Hall.  I will send an e-mail to let everyone know.  The VOV deadline was today.  I will be working on that.  If you did not get an article in, you still have time.

SPECIAL COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Records Commission – Mrs. Mills reported, we will be meeting next week.  I finally received a report on Shred Day.  7200 pounds, or 3.6 tons were shred.  Environmental savings was 7 barrels of oil, 61 trees, 2500 plus gallons of water 11 cubic yards of landfill.  Energy savings was 14,000 plus kilowatts and 900 carbon dioxide pounds.

Mr. Marrie commented, it’s a great program, for many reasons, if nothing else to clean house and feel safe that it is not being passed around.

Mr. Jerome asked, is this better than previous years?  Mrs. Betsa replied, yes.  Mrs. Mills stated, it seems like people are getting used to it. They are cleaning out papers they have been saving for no reason.

Community Economic Development – Mr. Saponaro stated, there was no meeting. There is no report.

The Grove Committee - Mr. Jerome reported, The Grove had a couple events since our last meeting. We had the Art Festival Saturday July 12th.  I wasn’t there.

Mrs. Mills stated, there were about 150 people there.  It was very well attended. The artists were pleased. The people were pleased.  At these events, there is an increasing number of residents showing up which is very encouraging.

Mr. Jerome stated, I have been trying to keep note of residents to make sure that everyone knows of future events.  On Thursday, July 17th, we had Sweet Adelines and Barbershop Quartet. It was pretty well attended.

Mrs. Mills stated, Gary said maybe about 300 people attended. That hill was pretty well occupied.

With regard to the high school battle of the bands, Mr. Jerome stated, it has been rescheduled to September 6th. We had trouble getting bands for that event. We are going to try again.  Yesterday, we had the Cinema Under the Stars, Princess Bride.  I was there. That was really nice.  There were a lot of families there. The weather was nice.

Coming up, we have the Greek Music and Dance on Friday.  On Saturday is the History Under the Stars. That should be nice too.  We still have all of August. There are a number of events.  I hope everyone can at least check it out once if they have not been there at all.

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to enact Ordinance No. 2014-19.

Council President Pro Tem Marrie asked, any question or comments? 

Mr. Jerome asked, the roadway, is that going to be any wider than it is now?

Mr. Cappello replied, the plan is not to.  It will be fully recycled, somewhat like Seneca and Metro Park and Highland Road.  There will be another 3 inches of asphalt on top.  The sewer will be replaced outside the pavement.  They will have connections that will require an open cut. Those get patched.  They will come in and grind the first top 6 inches of the entire roadway.  It gets injected with a cyclogen.

Mr. Metzung added, they rebuild the roads.  It gets more glue.

Mrs. Eisenberg asked to comment.  I live on Seneca.  Make the road a little wider.  If there’s a truck and school bus, the school bus backs up.  That is absolutely wrong.  Make it a little bit wider.  It’s ridiculous for a school bus to back up.

Mr. Cappello stated, Seneca is only 18 feet wide. Eastgate and Meadowood is 20. There’s an extra 2 feet on that road.

Mrs. Eisenberg stated, make it wider than that.  It’s ridiculous. We have trucks going up and down our street. When that school bus backs up, I am absolutely furious. There’s no excuse for that.

Resolution No. 2014-19, entitled, “A Resolution declaring the necessity of renewing by levy a tax in excess of the 10-mill limitation and submitting the same to the electorate of Mayfield Village, Ohio.”  Introduced by Mayor Rinker and Council as a Whole.

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Jerome, made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 2014-19.

Council President Pro Tem Marrie asked, any questions or comments?

Mr. Wynne stated, in the Finance Committee meeting, because this is a General Fund levy, and if passed by the residents, the money will go into the General Fund, the Committee members have requested that if this is passed by the residents that an equivalent dollar figure be appropriated by the Village for specific fund dedication to be determined yet, whether it’s the bond fund or the sewer fund, but that it be considered in the budgeting process at the end of this year.

Mr. Saponaro stated, this is not an increase in taxes. This is a renewal, not a replacement.  It’s $100,000 each year for five years, correct?

Mr. Wynne replied, correct.

Mr. Jerome asked, it’s been around since 1975?

Council President Pro Tem Marrie stated, the estimation was done in 1975.
