DEPARTMENT HEAD REPORTS:

Mary Betsa (Council) – I received a second reminder from the Northeast Ohio City Council Association for the Thursday, March 21st Workforce Development on Education, Equity and Transportation seminar.  Please let me know if you wish to attend.

  • Records Commission – The Commission will be meeting on Tuesday, May 7th at 12:00. A reminder that Shred Day is Saturday, May 18th.

Also, from February 28th to March 11th, I will be out of the country.  I will not have phone or e-mail access.  If there are any Council questions, please contact Jeff Thomas and if there are any Finance questions, please contact Ron Wynne.

Chief Carcioppolo (Fire) - I just wanted to let everyone know that the Civil Service Commission met and certified the results of the Assistant Chief’s test.  We should be working on interviewing and hopefully have a selection for Assistant Chief Girbino’s replacement soon.

Council President Saponaro asked, when is he scheduled to retire?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, end of May.

Council President Saponaro asked, and how many candidates will you be interviewing?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, there is a certified list of 6.

Council President Saponaro asked, that doesn’t mean you will be interviewing all of them, but you have 6 possible candidates?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, correct.

Council President Saponaro stated, okay.  Very good.

Chief Carcioppolo stated, and then, as of now, we are 28 calls ahead of where we were last year on the same date.  The increase in calls is continuing.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you. We appreciate that.

Shane McAvinew (Parks and Recreation)

  • Commission on Aging – The next meeting scheduled for March 21st has been moved to April 3rd at 11:00 a.m. at the Community Room.
  • Parks and Recreation – Parks and Recreation Board met last week.  The programming and activities committee met.  They decided to move the Easter Party time to 10:30-12:00 on April 13th. The Board members wanted to try an earlier time and see if it attracted more people to the event.  The Community Brochure is available on-line at the Mayfield Village website.  The brochure will be mailed out on March 4th to all of the residents in Mayfield Village.  This is the Community Brochure, not the entertainment brochure.  The entertainment brochure will come out in early April.
  • Senior Services – In March they have the CPA Lunch N Movie on the 13th.  The cost is $5.  The Lunch N Movie at Governor’s Village is on the 20th. The cost is $5.  They also have three trips to DragonFly, one to Lake County Historical Society with lunch at the Rider’s Inn and a tour of the Bennett Van Curen Historical House.  A lunch and learn will be held on March 1st which is “A Lifetime at Sea”, sponsored by Dignity Memorial/DiCicco and Sons.

Council President Saponaro asked, since we combined Committees with the Parks and Recreation Board, how is it working out from your perspective?

Mr. McAvinew replied, superb.  The first half hour is a great work session. A lot of things are accomplished in the first 30 minutes in a smaller group setting and then you get to the larger group setting for 15-20 minutes.  Councilman Meyers and Councilwoman Mills and Councilman Schutt can probably testify to the activeness going on.  Good dialogue goes back and forth in discussions versus how it was.  It has been an excellent change.

Council President Saponaro stated, good.  Great.  Just wanted to bring that up for the benefit of the whole.  I appreciate that report.

Doug Metzung (Service) – Thank you Council President. With the help of Susan Jerome in our office, Mayfield Village received a Community Recycling Awareness Grant from the Solid Waste District for $2,600 to buy new refrigerator magnets for recycling because it has been so confusing as of late.

Council President Saponaro asked, what has been the confusion just so we are clear?

Mr. Metzung replied, they are not accepting the same amounts of recycling, mostly plastics, than they used to.

Council President Saponaro asked, they are not accepting plastics?

Mr. Metzung replied, they are, but they want to confine it to jugs and bottles and things of that nature.  All the other plastic containers are not welcome anymore because of too much contamination and it is getting too hard to sell the material downstream.  There’s a big long story about how China no longer accepts any of it.  They don’t want to be America’s dumping ground anymore.  So now your recyclables need to be a lot cleaner.  The next thing on the list is going to be glass.

Council President Saponaro asked, that they are not going to accept?

Mr. Metzung replied, right now they are not accepting glass in Akron because there is just no market for it.  Please remember that as we vote on our Solid Waste District

Council President Saponaro asked, so in essence what we do is we throw it in the regular garbage?

Mr. Metzung replied, correct.

Council President Saponaro stated, and then we put it in the landfills and let nature take its course?

Mr. Metzung replied, until there is a market for it, all of the little thin plastic covers and all that kind of stuff, there’s just nowhere for them. It’s kind of like the little plastic bags. That’s something they do not recycle either.

Council President Saponaro asked, does anyone have any questions on this?

Mr. Marquardt asked, how do you manage that?

Mr. Metzung stated, it’s very bad.  I would imagine the City of Cleveland is going to have a hard time getting a recycling bid next time they go out to bid.

Mr. Marquardt stated, just throw it in the garbage.  Forget it, right?

Mr. Metzung stated, there’s the dilemma. House Bill 125 I believe it was, says that they had to create Solid Waste Districts and in those Solid Waste Districts part of their call was they had to reduce their trash by 25%.  That was done through recycling. They still have to meet those mandates.  It gets a little more stringent all the time meeting those mandates.  You can’t expect your haulers or recycling companies to take in product they can’t get rid of.

Mr. Marquardt asked, who separates it?

Mr. Metzung replied, it goes down to material and handling facilities where they separate the materials.  Anyone who ever wants to go see that, it’s pretty amazing. I would be happy to set that up and take everyone down to Kimble’s place to watch them work.  It is done by magnets and things like that to get the metals and that, but a lot of it’s done by hand still.  It’s pretty amazing to watch, but there is still too much contamination that reaches into a bundle, so when that bundle gets bundled up and they send it off to whoever is going to recycle it, they tear it down and it’s got all this other stuff that they can’t use.  It drives the price down.  The user ends up not accepting this product from these material and handling facilities.  It’s really bad on the west coast because that’s where they send everything.  The talk is hopefully in a few years the Americans will start to go back into this business of recycling plastics.  China had been taking it and giving a decent dollar for it so everybody was just sending it to China.

Council President Saponaro asked, so has your counterparts or other communities, has anyone been addressing this or having discussions on it?

Mr. Metzung replied, the Solid Waste District is.  That’s why these recycling awareness grants are out there to help get that word out.  You are going to hear more.  The recycling haulers are getting hit very hard so they have already started bumping up prices for private haulers for people they contract with.  Some of the communities around here still do their own recycling pick-up.  Lyndhurst does it.  Some of the others do their own in-house.  They formed a consortium within that to send their recyclables through this consortium that Solid Waste helped put together.  They are going to see an increase in their cost to do that.

Council President Saponaro asked, they are still taking it?

Mr. Metzung replied, they are still taking it at this time.

Council President Saponaro stated, so we need to create the dialogue.

Mr. Metzung stated, what it’s going to come down to is the consumer purchasing products that come in recyclable containers so you don’t go out and buy the wrapped kind of things or fruits in plastic containers.  Someone is going to have to make a container out of cardboard.

Council President Saponaro stated, or they go back to do what our grandmothers did.  They kept every container, washed it, reused it and when they passed away they had 400 of them.

Mr. Metzung stated, you see it with people bringing their own bags to the grocery stores and things of that nature.  That’s really where the pressure is going to have to come from is the consumer to say you need to package your products in a way that it can be recycled.

Ms. Wolgamuth stated, in the last Voice of the Village, we did a 2-page spread on plastics and reducing plastics.  There were a bunch of hints of what you can do. People are taking their own containers when they go to a restaurant for their take-home or leftovers.  The next issue, Susan and I are going to work on putting something out about what is now acceptable and what is not.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.

Mr. Metzung continued, tree trimming is progressing.  They should be done hopefully by the end of the week which was their cut-off at which time Frank Stupczy, the arborist will go out with them and tour it and make sure that everything is good.

Mr. Metzung stated, lastly, we are enjoying the heat from our new boiler which was turned on today.  Thank you for that.

Council President Saponaro stated, excellent.  Very good.

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to authorize an expenditure in the amount of $11,000 to JEMM Properties Management, Ltd. for 2019 Solar Electric Service at Police Station per Power Purchase Agreement of 9-8-10 (Agreement expires 4-30-20).  (Finance Department)

Council President Saponaro asked, any discussion?

Mr. Wynne stated, I want to again mention what this is about and clarify some information from the last meeting.  The agreement actually expires April 30, 2032.  The April 30, 2020 date is the date we have the option to exercise a buy-out option at fair market value.  I had mentioned at Caucus it expired on 2020.  That was incorrect.

Council President Saponaro asked, this is the expiration of exercising of the buy-out?

Mr. Wynne replied, correct.  It’s a 20 year lease which expires April 30, 2032.  On April 30, 2020, we have the option to buy it out at fair market value.

Council President Saponaro asked, what date is the agreement, to be clear?

Mr. Wynne replied, we signed the agreement on December 8, 2010.  Once they purchased the solar panels, installed them and they were up and running, then the lease kicked in.  We started on May 1, 2012.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you.  Does anyone have any questions regarding this?

There were none.

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to authorize the Mayor and President of Council to enter into a 60 month lease with Neopost USA for  digital mailing system, including equipment maintenance, rate change protection, installation and training at $419.34 a month. (Finance Department)

Council President Saponaro asked, discussion?

Mr. Wynne stated, again on this, the lease for the current equipment expires on March 19, 2019.  This is State contract pricing.  We looked at the option to enter into a new lease or buy out the existing equipment.  The cost to buy out the existing equipment plus the maintenance contracts on it over a 60-month timeframe ended up being $4,400 more than the cost of the new lease so we decided to go with the new equipment.  The price of $419.34 a month is $11.47 more per month than what we were currently paying for the current equipment.

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

There were none.

Council President Saponaro asked, discussion?

Dr. Parker asked, I will just ask since we always ask, how is it going with them, Chief?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, it’s fine.

Dr. Parker stated, we have had years where we had problems with their maintenance.  Everything’s good?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, they seem to be.  If they weren’t, we would kind of be in a bad spot.  They have been pretty good.

Dr. Parker stated, okay, good.  I know in the past we complained.  I just wanted to make sure everything was as it should be.

Chief Carcioppolo replied, it’s all good.  We got the hydrant count exact because I went out and did it personally.  They were trying to increase the number.  It is all square now.  We are good.

Dr. Parker stated, good.  Thank you, Chief.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you Dr. Parker.  Any other questions?

Council President Saponaro asked, any questions?  The seatbelt law is currently a secondary offense.  This would make it a first offense.  The police would have the opportunity to stop people for not wearing their seatbelts as a first offense, in a nutshell, Mr. Coyne?

Mr. Coyne replied, yes.

Mr. Coyne stated, this is related because of the terminology used to modernize it.  We are now focusing on wireless handsets that are used for text messaging or other forms of communication while driving.

Council President Saponaro asked, any questions?

Ordinance No. 2019-08 moved to Second Read.

  • First Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-09, entitled, “An Ordinance repealing and replacing Codified Ordinance Chapter 1185 relating to signs regulations.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (Law Department)

Mr. Coyne stated, if you have any questions on this, I will certainly answer them. There is one section I would like to have considered to be an amendment to it.  1185.08, Signs Permitted in Any District, specifically Section (f), if you look at (f)(4), it says “Such signs shall be located as close to the center of the property as possible as measured by the front footage, but in no event less than 10 feet from the property line.”  Section (f)(1) says “Such signs shall be located not less than 20 feet from the right-of-way line.”  In speaking with Mr. Marrelli and also at the Department Heads meeting, we had a discussion about how you would be able to measure that, particularly on streets where there might not be a sidewalk and there might not be a clear delineation of where the right of way line is.  To enforce it, it was suggested that we modify Section (f)(1) to state it would be 10 feet from the edge of the roadway surface.  So it would have to be on private property, 10 feet back from the edge of the roadway surface.

Council President Saponaro asked, tell me this section again?

Mr. Coyne replied, it would be amending Section 1185.08(f)(1).  It says 20 feet from the right-of-way line.  I will have this corrected for the next meeting.  The end of that should be 10 feet from the edge of the roadway surface.

Council President Saponaro asked, all right, so such signs shall be located not less than 10 feet from the edge of the roadway surface?

Mr. Coyne replied, yes.  That’s the suggested amendment and it is in consultation with the Building Department and also at the Department Head’s meeting we discussed it thoroughly.

Council President Saponaro asked, so that change is going to be done and you will provide us with an update?

Mr. Coyne replied, yes.

Council President Saponaro asked, anything else you want to talk about on this?

Mr. Coyne replied, I don’t think so.  If anyone has any questions, I would be glad to answer them.

Council President Saponaro stated, it’s a pretty lengthy ordinance. Hopefully everyone has gone through it and if you haven’t, do that so that at our next meeting we can continue the discussion on this with any questions or things of that nature regarding this ordinance because it’s pretty big and it does dive deep into an area that has had a lot of case law come out on it so I just wanted to make sure everyone understands it before we put it to a vote.

Ordinance No. 2019-09 moved to Second Read.

  • Resolution No. 2019-12, entitled, “An emergency resolution to adopt the Solid Waste Management Plan for the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (Service Department).

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 2019-12.

Council President Saponaro asked, discussion? Doug do you want to talk about this?

Mr. Metzung stated, this is the Agreement with the Solid Waste Management District. We ratify their plan that they have to come up with every 5 years.  They have to have 60% of the communities plus the largest community to ratify it which is the City of Cleveland.  Should they not get the ratification, the State of Ohio will step in and write the program for them.

Council President Saponaro stated, okay.  But this has nothing to do with the recycling aspect of it?

Mr. Metzung replied, no.  It’s just the County outlining their plan for maintaining House Bill 125.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you for the clarification.  Does anyone have any questions?

There were none.
