Rick Christian

I have problems with Ordinances 2019-06, 07 and 08.  How can the Village pass laws which the State has not passed and Federal government has not passed?

Council President Saponaro asked, are you going to address this now or during the reading of the Ordinances?

Mr. Coyne replied, whatever you would like to do.

Council President Saponaro stated we can address it during discussion.  We will address those questions during the discussions of the Ordinances, is that all right?

Mr. Christian replied, yes.

Council President Saponaro stated, fantastic. Thank you Mr. Christian.  Who also would like to come up?

Joan Gottschling

President – Mayfield Township Historical Society

I am representing the Historical Society tonight and I am here to thank Mayor Bodnar and Council for your continued support and your generous donation to the Society for our 2019 year.  As you know, we use this money to fund many of our projects and one of our biggest ones is the 3rd graders from Mayfield School and St. Francis come every Spring as part of their curriculum and they tour our Bennett Vancuren house so some of our funding goes to help support that program.  It’s a part of their curriculum that they do.

We are also focusing on the 200th Anniversary of the Mayfield Township.  The Mayfield Township is the 6-square mile area which includes Gates Mills, Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights and Mayfield Village.  Mayfield Village is a part of the township and the Historical Society is supporting this 200th Anniversary this year.  We are going to do several activities over the year at The Grove and we also are going to make a time capsule asking residents of Mayfield Village to add to it.  That will be coming a little bit later on what we want them to do hoping that in 50 years we can open it up and see what we were thinking today.

We have also many donated artifacts to the Historical House that we are trying to historically preserve and there’s a lot of cost involved in buying the proper paper and the material and things to keep them so they’ll last another 200 years.  So we thank you for your donation for that.

We are also into community education.  We are trying to communicate this Township history interestingly to the community in various ways and newsletters and other media sources on Facebook and such.

So I know that the Council and the members of the force here can all get out in the community and talk to people in Mayfield Village.  If you see anybody that’s looking for something to do, we would encourage you to talk to them and send them our way.  If they would like to donate a few hours of time during the month to our cause, we have a research library, we do inventory on our artifacts, archiving them now.  There’s things in the yard to pick up, sticks, things like that or plant bulbs.  There’s all kinds of things and we are really looking for help and I know people that get out in the community and talk to the residents might find somebody that would be perfect for our fit.  So, thank you very much for your support. We really appreciate it.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you very much.  And also, you may want to mention the memorial brick program because I think that’s important as well.

Ms. Gottschling stated, on our membership application which is $10 a year, we have our bottom portion that is a memorial brick that can be purchased for $40.  You can do up to three lines.  We also have a section of our memorial walkway just for Veterans too.  So if you would like to memorialize anybody or even somebody that’s living, call the House.  Thanks.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you very much.  Is there anyone else?

There was no further discussion.

DEPARTMENT HEAD REPORTS:

Diane Wolgamuth (Administration) – Thank you.  Speaking of memorials, I provided Council with a memo regarding a memorial bench sponsorship program that we are looking at.  I understand that some Council members have some comments and questions, so rather than try to have that discussion this evening, we will just put that on the agenda for the Caucus next month.

Council President Saponaro stated, perfect.

Ms. Wolgamuth stated, thank you.

John Marrelli (Building):

  • Planning and Zoning – The 25 conditional use permits were recommended for approval by the Planning Commission on March 4th.  It’s on your agenda under New Business.
  • Architectural Review Board – The Board met on the 14th for an addition on Wilson Mills.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.  Thank you.

Mary Betsa (Council) – I received a notification from the Northeast Ohio City Council Association that the meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 21st has added another speaker, Brandon Cornuke from the Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network.  Al Meyers will be attending.  If anyone else still wishes to attend, they are still taking reservations, just let me know.

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

Chief Carcioppolo (Fire) – Just real quick, I just wanted to let you know that as of yesterday, we are about 23 calls ahead of where we were last year at this time.  We offered a conditional job offering for Assistant Chief to replace Assistant Chief Girbino when he retires.  That is in the works.  I believe he will be sworn in on April 15th to start working and shadowing with Assistant Chief Girbino before Mike leaves.

Council President Saponaro asked, when is he planning on leaving?

Chief Carcioppolo replied, his final day I believe is May 31st.

Council President Saponaro stated, okay.  Thank you.

Anthony J. Coyne (Law) - Just to report that the Board of Elections has assigned a number to the election for the zoning amendment so we will be on the ballot as Issue 8.  It shall read that the zoning map of the Village of Mayfield be amended to change the zoning classification.  It identifies the specific permanent parcel numbers located on Highland Road for the current U1 single family residential district and/or the production distribution district to the planned residential development district.  It will be on the ballot as Issue 8 and it will require an affirmative vote of the majority of the voting body in the Village of Mayfield.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.  Thank you.

Shane McAvinew (Parks and Recreation):

  • Commission on Aging – The next Commission on Aging meeting scheduled for March 21st has been moved to April 4th at 11:00 a.m. at the Community Room.
  • Parks and Recreation – Parks and Recreation Board meets this Wednesday the 20th.  We have committee meetings at 6:30 and then the general meeting will start at 7:00.  The general meeting will be in this room. One committee meeting will be in this room and the other in the Main Conference Room.  Also, if you have not received our Community Brochure, you should have received it at your residence.  They will also be distributed throughout the community at businesses.
  • Senior Services – On April 10th, they will have a Lunch N Movie with the Community Partnership on Aging.  You need to call the CPA to register for that.  Lunch and movie at Governor’s Village is the 17th of April.  You can call senior services to register.  We have three trips to the Dragonfly Tea Room in Canal Fulton on 3/27, 4/3 and 4/5 and they are all full.  Lunch and Learn will be on April 28th.  It will be Name that Tune.

Council President Saponaro stated, okay and I wanted to report to you that for the Parks and Recreation Board meeting on Wednesday, Dr. Parker has let me know that it is a Jewish holiday so he will not be at that meeting.

Mr. McAvinew stated, thank you.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you.

Chief Matias (Police) – Thank you Council President.  I just wanted to mention a Press Release that came out today from the DEA.  Last week, there was the culmination of a long investigation that resulted in a bunch of warrants and 22 people being indicted for drug trafficking specifically in Northeast Ohio and in this area.  The SPAN Drug Enforcement Unit was part of that investigation and our SWAT team assisted with some of the search warrants.  I just wanted to mention the Press Release.  That kind of shows the importance of having those special units and how they work together to try to deal with some of the problems around the area.  Everybody did a great job.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you very much.

Doug Metzung (Service) – Thank you Council President. I just wanted to make a note that we need to amend the agenda when we get to the motion for the purchase of the trees for the Spring planting.  Between the time of the quote and now, they have sold 7 of the trees that we had hoped to get so the cost now from Lake County Nursery is $7,342.

Council Saponaro asked, $7,342?

Mr. Metzung replied, yes.

Council President Saponaro asked, and how many trees is that, do we know?

Mr. Metzung replied, 44.

Council President Saponaro stated, all right.  Very good.  Anything else?

Mr. Metzung replied, no.

Committee Reports:

  • Citizens Advisory Committee (Patsy Mills):  Our next meeting is this coming Monday, March 25th at 7:00 p.m.  Mr. McAvinew will be giving us a rundown on the Grove.

OLD BUSINESS:

  • Third Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-04, entitled, “An Ordinance appropriating funds for current expenses and expenditures for Mayfield Village, Ohio for the period from January 1, 2019 and ending December 31, 2019 and declaring an emergency.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar.  (First Reading – January 28, 2019; Second Reading – February 25, 2019) (Finance Department)

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to enact Ordinance No. 2019-04.

Council President Saponaro asked, discussion?

Mr. Wynne stated, I just wanted to bring to Council’s attention why there was a late change at the end of last week based upon the opening of the bid results which we will talk about later on this evening.  We received one bid result for a project at the Fire Department which we are going to reject tonight, but based upon the results of that bid, we felt we were short in the budget so we added $75,000 to that capital projects budget to make sure we have enough to cover that when we do go back out to bid for that project.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.  Thank you.  Does anyone have any questions regarding the budget, the Ordinance that we have been reviewing for the past three months or any of the other information that Mr. Wynne has provided?

There were none.

ROLL CALL:

AYES: All
NAYS: None

Motion Carried. Ordinance Enacted.

  • Second Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-05, entitled, “An emergency Ordinance amending Codified Ordinance Section 153.11 pertaining to Family and Medical Leave.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (First Reading – February 25, 2019) (Administration/Finance Departments)

Ordnance No. 2019-05 moved to Third Read.

Council President Saponaro stated, before we do the second readings of the next three Ordinances, maybe this would be the appropriate time to answer the question from Mr. Christian.

Mr. Coyne stated, Mr. Christian, you had a comment about the lawfulness of such legislation being passed by Mayfield Village when it may not be something that’s readily apparent from Ohio law.  The fact of the matter is the Village is a chartered community.  The Charter operates like the Constitution of the State of Ohio as a consequence for the public health, safety and welfare.  The Council is authorized to pass such legislation that it deems to be in the best interest of the community.  In this particular case, we have modified a current ordinance and are adding two amendments which will allow for the police to enforce the use of seatbelts as a primary issue as well as not to use their cellphone while the automobile is in drive or is in use and operational.  These are both based upon studies that have been done.  They show that wearing seatbelts is a safety issue.  It is important for the drivers and the occupants of all automobiles.  As related to cellphone use, there’s a great of deal of that going on, particularly texting more than talking on the phone with it in your hand which is a real public health hazard.  I think we all have experienced that frankly driving on the freeway and we see cars weaving back and forth and we are not sure what’s going on and they are texting.  So the Council is considering this.  These are all on for Second Reading and they would make those two issues primary offenses in the Village of Mayfield.

Mr. Christian stated, I can see texting.  But if you get a phone call and you answer a phone call, you’re not texting.

Mr. Coyne stated, you are still taking your hands off the wheel and you are a distracted driver and a police officer could pull you over if they see that you’re not –

Mr. Christian asked, how many times do you drive with two hands on the wheel?

Mr. Coyne replied, it depends.  I usually do, but if I don’t, if I have a Big Mac in my hand, I can get pulled over that.  So, it’s being a distracted driver and a police officer -

Council President Saponaro stated, that’s already on the books.

Mr. Coyne stated, that’s correct.  It is incumbent upon a police officer if he observes a driver who is distracted and could be a danger to the public health, safety and welfare, he can pull that driver over.

Mr. Christian stated, I understand that, but a distracted driver, okay, if he’s weaving, I can see that, a police officer pulling the guy over.  Okay, but if somebody’s talking on the phone and they are driving down the road perfectly normally, I don’t see why there has to be a law on the books in the Village that says the police can pull them over for being distracted if they’re not being distracted.

Council President Saponaro stated, again, and we appreciate your comments and can continue the conversation.  You can certainly talk with the Chief or anyone after.  But, there’s a couple more things that you should understand.   This is not something that is unique to Mayfield Village.  There are other communities that have already adopted these.  We are trending towards this.  We are going to be in a situation where it’s now swiss cheese.  You drive here, you can’t use your cellphone.  You drive here, you can.  We are moving and adapting to a more uniform way of conducting safety for all of our communities and this is something that our police truly believe in.   We have always supported our police when they come to us with these.  They are on the front line of seeing what’s going on out there, so this is the culmination of all of those things but certainly your comments are well taken and we do appreciate that.

Mr. Christian asked, well don’t you think it should be up to the State rather than local?

Council President Saponaro replied, no.  So –

Mr. Christian continued, because if somebody’s driving through the State and they go through each one of these little villages, how are they to know what laws are in that particular little village?

Council President Saponaro stated, okay.

Mr. .Christian stated, it should be a State law and maybe you should go to the State and say look-

Council President Saponaro stated, and maybe it will be, but every community has the right to go above what the State does. You can go above what Federal law does.  We can’t dilute it, but you can go above it.  So, maybe you can answer that question.

Mr. Coyne stated, Mr. Christian, I mean, you can go way back with the seatbelt law.  The original seatbelt law in the State of Ohio was first passed not by the State legislature, but by the City of Brooklyn, Ohio.  And it was enforced.  And people looked at that as a trend setter that that’s a smart thing to do.  Then automobiles started to require seatbelts to be fastened or you get beeps.  So, it’s a part of the evolution of what’s safe and the Police Department obviously makes recommendations and if the Council finds it to be prudent in the protection of the public, they have a right to consider its passage.  This is on for Second Reading and as a consequence that’s how it’s done.  Maybe you should be writing to one of your State legislators to have them look into doing it State-wide.  That might be a good idea.

Council President Saponaro stated, thank you.

Mr. Christian asked, isn’t that the job of local governments, to go to the State and say, look, we passed this law, why isn’t the State passing it?

Mayor Bodnar replied, Mr. Christian, it is part of our job and we do go to our State legislators on issues like this and a myriad of other issues.  It’s up to us to protect our own communities.  By putting this law in place, if the speed limit somewhere is 25 miles an hour and you are going 27, there’s nothing that compels a police officer to pull you over under those circumstances.  We leave some things to the sound discretion of our police officers and we have the best there are and we trust them to make sound decisions so you have to look at it from that angle also.

Mr. Christian stated, I agree with you wholeheartedly that the law should be passed, okay.  I’m just saying that for every little village in the State to pass its own law is ridiculous.

Council President Saponaro stated, but that’s what villages and communities do.  They have to.

Mr. Christian stated, well, that’s what I’m saying.  It’s ridiculous.

Council President Saponaro stated, I think you need to run for Senate or get up there and change the way we do this.  But we appreciate it.  And generally we don’t have this kind of discord, but because we were saving it for this portion, that’s why we’re having to do that and we do appreciate your comments.

  • Second Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-06, entitled, “An Ordinance amending Codified Ordinance Section 337.27 drivers and passengers required to wear seatbelts.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (First Reading – February 25, 2019)  (Law Department)

Council President Saponaro stated, the one question I had asked Chief Matias which he answered for me but I thought it was worth sharing and then I had another question was this is not only for drivers but it’s for passengers?

Chief Matias replied, correct

Council President Saponaro stated, so it’s for both parties.  Is it only for front seat?

Mr. Coyne replied, for all passengers.

Council President Saponaro asked, is it all passengers in a vehicle?

Chief Matias replied, yes.

Council President Saponaro stated, all passengers in a vehicle.  Okay.  I think we need to be clear on that because for a long time it was your front seat that seemed to be the target.  And again to Mayor Bodnar’s point, it doesn’t compel the police to stop folks if they don’t have seatbelts on in the back seat, however, it does give you that right if you believe that there is a compelling reason to do so.

Chief Matias replied, right.

Council President Saponaro stated, all right.  I just wanted to make that point.  Does anyone have any other questions on this one?

There were none.

Ordinance No. 2019-06 moved to Third Read.

  • Second Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-07, entitled, “An Ordinance repealing and replacing Codified Ordinance Section 331.43 relating to cell phone use while driving.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (First Reading – February 25, 2019) (Law Department)

Council President Saponaro asked, any questions on this one at this point?

There were none.

Ordinance No. 2019-07 moved to Third Read.

  • Second Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-08, entitled, “An Ordinance repealing Codified Ordinance Section 331.44 electronic wireless communication device while driving prohibited.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (First Reading – February 25, 2019)  (Law Department)

Council President Saponaro asked, any questions or comments on this?

There were none.

Ordinance No. 2019-08 moved to Third Read.

  • Second Reading of Ordinance No. 2019-09, entitled, “An Ordinance repealing and replacing Codified Ordinance Chapter 1185 relating to signs regulations.” Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (First Reading – February 25, 2019) (Law Department)

Council President Saponaro asked, any questions or comments on this?  This is a pretty lengthy ordinance.  I know that we have gone through it.  We have tweaked it over the past month or so, but if anyone has any questions, certainly bring them up here on the floor at our next Caucus or you can certainly speak to anyone directly here.

Ordinance No. 2019-09 moved to Third Read.

  • Resolution No. 2019-09, entitled, “A resolution requesting the Cuyahoga County Fiscal Officer to adjust the amended official certificate of estimated resources for 2019.”  Introduced by Mayor Bodnar. (Finance Department).

Mrs. Mills, seconded by Mr. Marquardt, made a motion to adopt Resolution No. 2019-09.

Council President Saponaro asked, discussion? This goes part and parcel with the ordinance where we passed the budget?

Mr. Wynne replied, if you recall, in July of every year, we pass an Alternate Tax Budget which gives the County an estimate of what our revenue will be for next year.  Once we put the final budget together, we have to adjust that certificate based upon our actual budget numbers.  This is the same thing as the budget for our revenues for the year.

Council President Saponaro stated, very good.  Does anyone have any questions on this?

There were none.
