CITY OF BAY VILLAGE

Council Minutes, Regular Meeting                                                                   February 3, 2014

Council Chambers 8:00 p.m.

Paul A. Koomar, President of Council, presiding

Present:           Clark, Henderson, Koomar, Lee, Lieske, Tadych, Vincent, Mayor Sutherland

Others

Present:           Law Director Ebert, Finance Director Mahoney, Chief Building Official                                                  Cheatham, Operations Manager Landers, Service Director Thomas, Police Chief                                            Spaetzel, Fire Chief Lyons, Community Services Director Bock

Council and members of the administration assembled at 7:30 p.m. in the conference room to review agenda items; this was open to the public.

During the review, Mayor Sutherland advised that Mr. Bob Greytak of CT Consultants, the consulting engineering for the city and she will be attending a meeting on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 with the management of the Rocky River Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The Mayor noted that all the data has been provided from the plant and they need to take a look at the methodology moving forward.  Mayor Sutherland will report back to Council after the meeting.  Mr. Tadych stated that he presumes the charges presented to the city will remain unchanged.  The Mayor concurred.

Mr. Lee advised that he will request that Ordinance No. 14-04, amending Codified Ordinance Section 115.08 regarding Notice of Public Hearing be placed on second reading.  This ordinance changes the posting requirements from five locations to three locations in the city.

Mr. Lee will provide an update on the work being done to bring the ordinances of the city regulating the use of bicycles in compliance with state code.  A meeting of the Environment, Safety and Community Services will be held on Monday, February 10, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. to continue the work that is being done on Chapter 377 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Bay Village, Ohio.

Mr. Clark commented that he will request that Ordinance No. 14-02, the budget for the Fiscal Year 2014 be adopted this evening as amended.  Mr. Clark called upon Finance Director Mahoney regarding the amendments to the ordinance.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that she changed Fund 600, Health Insurance, to the numbers that are anticipated for potential claims and administrative fees.  The administrative fees have been changed from $240,000 to $262,000.  The actual claims projection has been changed from $1,430,000 down to $1.2 million.  Liability Insurance, Fund 601 has been decreased.  Since the first reading of the ordinance, the new health care rates and the Fraternal Order of Police contract, Gold Unit, have been incorporated into the appropriations.

Ordinance No. 14-05 regarding video service provider fees will be moved to second reading this evening.

Ordinance No. 14-06 which is the rates of compensation for those employees in the General Administration Department that are not part of a separate labor contract will also move to second reading this evening.

An ordinance will be introduced this evening relative to employment provisions, Section 151 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Bay Village.  Finance Director Mahoney stated that the main change in Section 151 is the way vacations are earned by the non-bargaining unit employees.  Instead of earning vacation in the prior year and having it carried over to the following year, it will be accrued as it is earned.  Federal laws, especially those related to health care, will be made applicable to city employees.

Mr. Lee asked Mrs. Mahoney if there are any restrictions under the union contracts regarding limitations on accumulating and rolling over time.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that there are restrictions.  The police are allowed to carry over 200 hours.  The administrative employees are being permitted to carry over 120 hours.

Mr. Lee asked if there are any overall budget expenses in this version of the ordinance compared to the prior version.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that there are a few people that have been carrying over large amounts of vacation.  This will be a one-time payout for those people.  It will reduce the city’s liability going forward by paying at a current rate instead of retirement rate down the road.  It will be a one-time adjustment for a few people.  It will enable them to technically sell back to the city their vacation balance.  Mr. Clark asked if these amounts have been calculated.  Mrs. Mahoney will provide that information to Mr. Clark.   Mr. Koomar asked if Section 151.09, Longevity, is similar to what it was prior.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that it is the same.

Mr. Lee stated that the ordinance has a category for any part timers hired before January 1, 1995.  He asked if there are any part time employees hired before January 1, 1995.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that she does not believe so.  Mr. Lee stated that it seems there is a gap in the ordinance that if there were any people that fall into that category.  Mrs. Mahoney will double check but she does not believe there are any part time employees on the payroll that were hired before 1995 that would fall into the category of being permitted holiday and sick pay.  Mr. Vincent suggested that to be more specific the employee hired before 1995 would have had to be an “on-going” employee who worked for the city since 1995, without interruption.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that the intention is that part timers will not accrue vacation.  There were some exceptions in the past.  Mr. Lee suggested that Section (e) on Page 2 of the ordinance, and Section (j) of the ordinance say that “No part time employees will receive holidays.  No part time employees will receive vacation.”  The change will be made to the ordinance.

Mrs. Lieske stated that she has questions about Page 3 of the ordinance regarding 35 hour employees and 40 hour employees.  She stated that the ordinance on the agenda refers to “Division Chiefs” and we tend to use titles in the compensation ordinance as “Directors” rather than “Division Chiefs.”  Mayor Sutherland stated that “Division Chiefs” are the “Directors.”  Mrs. Mahoney stated that the Assistant Directors pay is based on a 35-hour week in the compensation ordinance.  Mrs. Lieske stated that there is one reference that said that “Department Heads” and “Division Chiefs” work 40 hours per week.  This is why she asked if Assistant Directors are the same as “Division Chiefs.”  Mayor Sutherland reiterated that “Division Chiefs” are the “Directors.”  She noted that basically all the management people are 40 hour-per-week employees.  The 35-hour-per-week employees are normally anybody that is secretarial based, or “Assistant to.”  Mrs. Lieske stated that city hall is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so this is based on the secretarial staff that is here.  Mrs. Lieske referred to Page 4 of the ordinance and asked if there were any thoughts of having some language throughout about same-sex, domestic partners being included in eligibility in regard to benefits granted to the employee for use of sick leave, bereavement time, etc.  Mayor Sutherland stated that at this time that is not recognized by the state of Ohio.  The city also does not recognize domestic partners for health care eligibility.  Mrs. Lieske asked if this is typical throughout other municipalities.  The Mayor stated that this ordinance was written with the guidance of the Human Resource Consultant for the city, Jazmyn Stover.  Mr. Ebert stated that the city has the flexibility as a Charter city to change what they choose.

Mrs. Lieske asked about the life insurance provision for employees on Page 7 of the ordinance, Section 151.11.   It states that the city shall pay the cost of Group Term Life Insurance.  Mrs. Lieske asked if there is a maximum amount to the policy, or a not to exceed, or is it based on the salary.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that the coverage is up to $50,000 and the cost is $72.00 per year.  Mrs. Lieske asked if the language should be changed to state that insurance coverage is up to $50,000, or an amount, or indicate that the amount is the same for all employees.  Mrs. Mahoney stated that the amount is one times the employee’s salary, up to $50,000.  The Mayor suggested referencing the Employee’s Handbook, rather than list an amount in the ordinance.  It was noted that the amount for longevity is listed in the ordinance. Mrs. Lieske asked if the employee has an option to buy additional life insurance.  Mr. Ebert stated that he did not believe they have that option.  Mrs. Lieske asked for verification to be provided.

Mr. Lee asked if Jazmyn Stover had looked at the Equal Opportunity Employment language in Section 151.14 (a) through (c).  He noted that some of the language seems to be out-of-date.  Mrs. Mahoney will ask Ms. Stover to review this section again.  Mr. Lee asked Mrs. Mahoney to verify that Ms. Stover did look at the language and that it is up-to-date and compliant.

Mr. Lee noted that the city’s Affirmative Action Plan is also referenced, in Section 151.14 (d).  Is that something that Ms. Stover should up-date to make sure the city is current and compliant?

Mrs. Lieske stated that there is one other correction that has been noted before on Page 11.  The term “sexually orientation” should be “sexual orientation.”

Mr. Clark stated that he would still recommend the ordinance be introduced this evening and placed on first reading with these suggested changes.

Mr. Tadych advised that he is looking into the Sunset Area and the Public Improvements Committee will move forward.

Mr. Koomar advised that the ordinances on the agenda this evening under the Planning, Zoning, Public Buildings and Grounds Committee were not the current versions.  Mr. Lee stated that two or three of the ordinances were not the current version.  Mr. Ebert stated that specifically it is Ordinance No. 19-98, and Ordinance No. 19-99, that were not the current versions.  Mr. Ebert stated that there is also a new ordinance being prepared regarding the depth of concrete.  Mr. Lee stated that his preference would be to wait until all the ordinances are addressed at the same time.

Mrs. Lieske stated that she will see if all her questions have been taken care of by receiving the corrected copies of the ordinances.  Mrs. Lieske will review the ordinances and verify with Mr. Ebert that her questions have been answered.

Mrs. Kemper introduced Michael DeGrandis, senior at St. Ignatius who will be attending Council meetings this semester as a Government Class intern.

President of Council Koomar called the meeting to order at 8:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers of Bay Village City Hall, with the Pledge of Allegiance led by Councilwoman Karen Lieske, Ward 3.

Following the roll call, Mr. Koomar called for a reading of the Minutes of the Special Meeting of Council held January 27, 2014.  Mr. Clark MOVED to dispense with the reading and accept the minutes as prepared and distributed.   Motion carried 6-0 with one abstention by Mr. Tadych.   Mr. Koomar called for a reading of the Minutes of the Cahoon Memorial Park Trustees held January 27, 2014.  Mr. Clark MOVED to dispense with the reading and accept the minutes as prepared and distributed.   Motion carried 7-0 with one abstention by Mr. Tadych.

It is with great sadness that we report the death of two Toledo Firefighters.

Private Stephen A. Machcinski, 42 years of age, with approximately 16 years of service, and Private James A. Dickman, 31 years of age, with approximately six months of service, died yesterday during structural firefighting operations.

Both Privates Machcinski and Dickman were assigned to Engine 3, and were responding to a structure fire at 528 Magnolia Street in North Toledo. In the course of their duties during firefighting operations, both firefighters suffered serious injuries. In a valiant rescue effort by their comrades, they were pulled from the structure and immediately given medical care by their fellow firefighters. Both firefighters were transported to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center where life saving efforts continued until they succumbed to their injuries.

Privates Machcinski and Dickman become the 48th and 49th Toledo Firefighters to die in the line of duty in the 177 year history of the Toledo Fire & Rescue Department.

May they rest in peace.”
