WE KNOW YOU HAD A LONG FLIGHT TODAY.

[00:05:11]

YOU DON'T NEED TO STAY FOR OUR WHOLE MEETING.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO SLIP OUT WHENEVER YOU WOULD LIKE.

[4. Visitor Comments]

THE NEXT WE HAVE SOME VISITORS. >> GOOD EVENING, MICHAEL TROPER.

ALLOWING GOLF CARTS ON WORTHINGTON STREETS.

THERE ARE TWO NEW COUNCILMEMBERS AND I WOULD LIKE TO CONSIDER GOLF CARTS IN WORTHINGTON.

ASK YOU TO CONSIDER THIS. ONE FINAL QUESTION I HAD FOR THAT MEETING, DOES THE CITY OWN ANY GOLF CARTS AND WHAT IS THE RATIONALE FOR PURCHASING THOSE GOLF CARTS AND USING THEM? THANK YOU. ANYONE HAVE QUESTIONS?

>> RESORT AREAS THAT HVE GOLF CARTS, LOWER SPEEDS, ENERGY EFFICIENT, GREEN A LITTLE BIT MORE THAN GAS CARS.

ANYWAY I THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR WORTHINGTON TO AT LEAST CONSIDER GOLF CARTS ON CERTAIN STREETS IF THAT NEEDS

TO BE ALSO. >> NEXT WE HAVE --

>> MADAM PRESIDENT? >> THEY ARE ON THE SAME TOPIC.

I THOUGHT WE WOULD GO THROUGH. ALL ON GOLF CARTS.

AND THEN BRING IT BACK TO COUNCIL.

BRENT FARRIS? BETH FARRIS.

>> I'M ALSO HERE FOR THE GOLF CARTS.

I'M LUCKY TO HAVE A BUNCH OF FRIENDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

I THINK IT WOULD BE NICER, BETTER AS FAR AS GAS GOES, EMISSIONS AND ALL OF THAT TO HOP INTO THE GOLF CART INSTEAD OF MY CAR 5-10 TIMES A DAY WHEN I REMEMBER I HAVE TO GO SEE SOMEBODY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. FOR ME IT'S STRICTLY, WELL NOT STRICTLY, IT'S ALSO FUN. I THINK THE ENERGY, THE GAS ALTERNATIVE IS SOMETHING THAT APPEALS TO ME.

ON A SEPARATE NOTE, I LIKE THEY GO SLOWER THAN REGULAR CARS BECAUSE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD PEOPLE DO TEND TO GO A LITTLE FAST ON THE STREETS. I THINK I MIGHT HELP REGULATE THAT ALSO. THANK YOU.

>> WE HAVE CHRIS, I CAN'T QUITE READ YOUR WRITING.

CHRIS SCOTT? >> THAT'S A TOUGH ONE.

CHRIS SCOTT. WE CURRENTLY ARE AN OWNER OF GOLF CART. ONE REASON WE DID IT, WE KNEW AT THE TIME IT WASN'T LEGAL IN WORTHINGTON BUT IT IS LEGAL IN THE STATE OF OHIO, DEPENDING ON MUNICIPALITIES.

WE USE IT FOR A LOT OF EVENTS FOR KIDS FR TRAVEL AND THINGS.

WHAT WE FOUND IS THE GOLF CART FOR US BECOMES MORE OF A PURPOSE OF BEING ABLE TO RUN BACK AND FORTH TO THE SCHOOL VERY QUICKLY, PICKING UP KIDS, RATHER THAN GETTING IN A CAR, THINGS ALONG THOSE LINES. IT REDUCES THE CONGESTION, WE THINK. REDUCES POLLUTANTS, POTENTIALLY.

TO HAVE THE GOLF CART, I'M NOT SURE IF YOU ARE AWARE, THERE'S A LOT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH. WE HAD TO GO THROUGH GETTING IT APPROVED. I WENT TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HERE INITIALLY TO GET IT APPROVED.

THEY WERE UNWILLING TO DO IT BECAUSE THEY FRANKLY DIDN'T WANT TO DEAL WITH IT. I KNOW SOME SCHOOL DISTRICTS

[00:10:01]

ALLOW THEM, WE WNT TO PARRY TOWNSHIP AND THEY GAVE US APPROVAL. SEAT BELTS, LIGHTS, TURN SIGNALS AND INCLUDING REAR VIEW MIRROR.

PRETTY MUCH FUNCTIONS AS A REAL VEHICLE BUT BRINGS BENEFITS TO THE COMMUNITY, REDUCING CONGESTION IN DOWNTOWN WORTHINGTON AREA. IT'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO CONSIDER AS WE GO FORWARD. YES THE POPULATION IS AGING BUT WE HAVE TURNOVER, WE CAN TALK ABOUT THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF POLLUTION, ENERGY EFFICIENT. WE HAVE AN ELECTRIC ONE SO WE REDUCE NOISE AND THINGS ALONG THOSE LINES AS WELL.

WE APPRECIATE IT IF YOU GIVE IT CONSIDERATION.

ANY QUESTIONS I GUESS YOU COULD ASK US NOW.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I KNOW WE HAVE NEWER COUNCILMEMBERS.

IF IT'S COUNCIL'S WISH, WE COULD PULL THIS UP FROM THE PAST AND UPDATE IT SO IF WE ARE GOING TO CONSIDER SO W HAVE UPDATED INFORMATION. THAT'S ONE THING I WANTED TO MENTION. MR. ROBINSON?

>> D. ROBINSON: THAT WAS ALSO MY QUESTION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT.

SO WHAT IS THE FEELING OF COUNCIL? DO WE WANT STAFF TO TAKE TIME NOW, OR DO WE WANT TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER THE BUDGET? BECAUSE THERE'S SOME PRETTY HEFTY PLATES HERE. I THINK WE NEED TO BE FAIR TO THE STAFF, BUT FIGURE OUT, DO YOU WANT TO BING IT UP, AND IF

SO, WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME? >> I WOULD PROPOSE REDISTRIBUTING THE OLD MATERIAL, LET US LOOK IT OVER AND DETERMINE IF WE WANT TO ASK STAFF TO DO FURTHER WORK.

>> I JUST WONDER IF IT HAS ANY INTERSECTION WITH THE BIKE AND PED MASTER PLAN IN LOOKING AT THE THOROUGHFARES IN WORTHINGTON AS FR AS, PARTICULARLY BIKES.

IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY INTERSECTION TO THAT? SO MAYBE IN LOOKING AT THE RESEARCH, WHERE WOULD IT FIT,

IF ANYWHERE? >>

>> I'M ALSO THINKING OF THE SAFETY OF THE STREETS AND WHAT IS THE ASSESSMENT WE HAVE HAD SO FAR WITH TE MASTER PLAN AND THE FOLKS THAT DID THE WALKING TOUR AND ALL OF THAT? HOW DOES THAT PLAY INTO THIS? WE COULD ASK OUR CONSULTANTS IF THEY HAVE QUESTIONS ON THAT, NOT HEARD IT TALKED ABOUT TO DATE.

WE HAVE SCOOTERS THAT HAVE EMERGED, WE MIGHT AS WELL TALK

ABOUT GOLF CARTS TOO. >> IT'S STAFF'S BUSIEST TIME OF THE YEAR. WE ALSO HAD NEGOTIATIONS GOING ON. WE DID VET THIS A COUPLE YEARS AGO, IT DIDN'T PREVAIL. I DON'T THINK THIS IS THE RIGHT TIME TO DEVOTE TOO MANY RESOURCES ON IT, WE HAVE TOO MUCH ON OUR PLATE. IF WE WANT TO COME BACK TO IT AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR, THAT'S FINE.

BUT I WOULDN'T ASK STAFF TO DO ANY ADDITIONAL WORK AT THIS TIME. THEY DID A THOROUGH JOB THE FIRST TIME. THERE'S A LOT OF GOOD MATERIAL FOR YOU TO GO OVER. LET'S CIRCULATE TE OLD MATERIAL AND THEN LET'S COME BACK AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR AND DECIDE WHAT KIND OF RESOURCES WE PUT INTO IT.

THAT WOULD BE MY SUGGESTION. >> I AGREE WITH THE MAJORITY OF MR. MYERS THOUGHTS. I ALSO AGREE WITH MS. KOWALCZYK, I WOULD LOVE TO KICK THIS OVER TO BIKE AND PED ALSO.

I THINK THEY MIGHT HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TO LOOK INTO IT, I DON'T THINK WE HAVE THE TIME.

BUT LOOKING AT LOW SPEED VEHICLES, MODES OF TRANSPORTATION, I THINK THEY ARE ALL WONDERFUL TOPICS WE SHOULD KEEP ON TRYING TO IMPROVE ON THROUGHOUT WORTHINGTON AND I THINK THAT GOLF CARTS HVE A PLACE IN TRANSPORTATION THROUGHOUT OHIO AND IN WORTHINGTON.

BUT I DON'T THINK WE HAVE THE TIME FOR THIS YEAR.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SO THE GENERAL CONSENSUS IS GET THE OLD MATERIALS OUT, WE WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND MAKE A DECISION ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. OR MAYBE IT GETS MOVED TO THE RETREAT AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR.

BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE WE DO OUR PRIORITIES.

MAYBE WE LOOK AT IT THERE. BUT WE WILL TAKE A LOOK.

FIRST OF ALL LOOK AT THE MATERIAL.

[00:15:04]

MR. GREESON, MARCHING ORDERS OKAY?

>> YES, MA'AM. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO LET OUR GUESTS KNOW WHAT THE GENERAL TOPIC IS WE WERE JUST TALKING.

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT GOLF CARTS, ALLOWING GOLF CARTS ON

OUR STREETS. >>

[5.A. Meeting Minutes - September 17, 2018]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING ONTO APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF SEPTEMBER 17TH. THE MINUTES HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED. ARE THERE CORRECTIONS, CHANGES? IF NOT MR. ROBINSON MOVES APPROVAL, SECONDED BY MR. SMITH.

ALL IN FAVOR AYE? OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

GOOD NIGHT. MOVING ONTO NEW LEGISLATION TO

[6.A. Resolution No. 52-2018 ReCAP Award - DLZ Corporation (6121 Huntley Road)]

BE INTRODUCED. RESOLUTION NUMBER 52,000-18 RECAP AWARD FOR D.L.Z. CORPORATION.

THIS WILL BE INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH, I MEAN MR. MYERS, WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS? MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MS. DOROTHY, SECONDED BY KOWALCZYK. MR. GREESON?

>> PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I'M REPLACING FOR MR. MCKIRKLE WHO IS OUT ON PATERNITY LEAVE FOR THE BIRTH OF HIS SON CAMDEN. THIS APPLICATION IS FROM D.L.Z.

CORPORATION WHO HAS APPLIED FOR THE REEMERGENT CORRIDOR, RECP LAUNCHED BY THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON IN 2014.

AS YOU MAY RECALL, THE PROGRAM PROVIDES FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO PRIVATE COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS AND TENANTS TO ENCOURAGE PRIMARILY EXTERIOR INVESTMENT AND ENHANCEMENT TO COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES IN THE HUNTLY ROAD AND PROPRIETOR'S ROAD CORRIDORS.

THESE ARE REIMBURSABLE GRANTS AND NO COST FINANCING TO FUND EXTERIOR ENHANCEMENTS. HALF THE TOTAL AWARD IS PROVIDED UP FRONT AS A LOAN PAYMENT TO AWARDEES AND THE OTHER HALF IS A REIMBURSABLE GRANT PAYABLE UPON RECEIPT OF INVOICES AND PAYMENTS. OUR APPLICANT I D.L.Z.

CORPORATION. THEY ARE AN ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN FIRM WHO IS A SIGNIFICANT EMPLOYER IN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AND HAS BEEN IN THE COMMUNITY FOR MANY DECADES. TONIGHT WE HAVE WITH US MR. SCOTT FRANK, WHO IS D.L.Z.'S DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES AND SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS IN ADDITION TO MY PRESENTATION, AFTER MY PRESENTATION, HE WOULD BE GLAD TO ASSIST IN ANSWERING THEM. D.L.Z. HAS BEEN ACTIVE AND SUPPORTIVE OF THE COMMUNITY AND THE APPLICANT OWNS, CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS THERE ON HUNTLY ROAD.

THEY CONTINUE TO REINVEST IN THEIR PROPERTIES AND HAVE SHOWN A COMMITMENT TO BE HERE FOR THE FUTURE.

PROPOSED PROJECT HAS A TOTAL COST OF ABOUT $63,319 TO BE EXACT AND STAFF HAS RECOMMENDED TO THE COMMUNITY IMPROVEMENT CORPORATION FIRST AND NOW THE COUNCIL APPROVAL FOR THE $25,000 I RECAP FUNDING. THE ADDRESS IS 6121 HUNTLY ROAD.

THAT'S A GEOGRAPHIC MAP OF IT, THIS IS ON THE SOUTHERN END NEAR INTERSECTION OF 161 REALLY AT THE GATEWAY TO THE HUNTLY ROAD CORRIDOR AS YOU COME FROM EAST 161 AND GO NORTH IN OUR WESTERN CORRIDOR. THERE'S AN AERIAL PHOTOGRAPH THAT DEPICTS THEIR CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS.

THEY ARE A MULTISTATE FIRM. IT'S A LARGE FACILITY, 161 AND MAXTON CHEVROLET TO THE SOUTH, COMMERCE PARK TO THE NORTH.

THE SCOPE OF WORK FOR THE PROJECT INCLUDES REPAIRING STUCCO FACADE, REPAINTING THE BUILDING, NEW SIGNAGE, INSTALLING NEW SOIL TO NEW BIO RETENTION AREAS.

IF YOU SAW THE PREVIOUS SLIDE THERE'S A LOT OF IMPERVIOUS

[00:20:04]

SURFACE IN THAT AREA. AND WE ARE EXCITED TO SEE SOME ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ADDITIONS TO THAT AREA.

INSTALLING TREES, SHRUBS AND PERENNIALS, TOPSOIL, ROCK REMOVAL AND SEEDING. THIS WORK FITS WELL WITHIN THE GOALS OF THE REPACK PROGRAM AND WE BELIEVE IT'S ADDITIVE TO THE CORRIDOR. I WILL ALSO NOTE THAT D.L.Z.

HAS MADE SIGNIFICANT OTHER IMPROVEMENTS TO THEIR BUILDING INCLUDING A FULL SCALE INTERIOR RENOVATION IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS TO THAT FACILITY. THE ESTIMATED TIME LINE FOR COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT IS ABOUT 12 WEEKS.

I BELIEVE THEY WORKED WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD DESIGN CENTER WHO IS UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE CITY TO ASSIST APPLICANTS IN DESIGN IDEAS AND THIS IS THE CURRENT FACILITY.

THIS GIVES YOU SOME INDICATION OF WHAT THE SIGNAGE MAY END UP LOOKING LIKE. THE APPLICATION WAS SCORED BY CITY STAFF AND THE BOARD. IT RECEIVED A FINAL SCORE OF 75 POINTS OUT OF 100. IT WAS ACKNOWLEDGED THE SCOPE FITS WELL WITHIN THE RECAP PROGRAM AND THEIR COMMITMENT TO WORTHINGTON HAS BEEN UNPARALLELED.

WE WOULD GLADLY ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND I INVITE MR. FRANK TO ADD ANYTHING HE MIGHT LIKE TO ADD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTIONS?

>> SINCE THIS IS ON

-- APPROVAL? >> NO, SIR.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HOW MANY TREES WILL BE ADDED?

>> THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. >> MY NAME IS SCOTT FRANK, I'M THE DIRECTOR OF HUMAN RESOURCES, THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS COUNCILMEMBERS.

AT THIS TIME THE TREE DESIGN IS A BIT INFLUX.

WHAT I MEAN BY THAT THIS TAKES TWO PIECES, WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, TIS INITIAL $63,000 IS BASICALLY THE BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS THEMSELVES WHICH WILL BE THE CHANGE IN THE SIGNAGE, THE REPAIR OF THE FACADE.

WE WENT THROUGH AND PUT LOW EMISSION WINDOWS.

$63,000 IS FOR THAT. THE SECOND PART, THE IMPERVIOUS PAVEMENT, A GREEN OR L.E.D. FOCUS FOR THE -- EXCUSE ME, I'M SORRY. GREEN FOCUS FOR THE PARKING LOT IS NEXT YEAR AND THAT WILL PROBABLY BE A $200,000-$250,000 PROJECT. IT'S QUITE AN EXPENSIVE THING TO TAKE WHAT IS AN OLD TECHNOLOGY, JUST LAYING DOWN A BUNCH OF ASPHALT AND CHANGING THAT INTO SOMETHING THAT IS MORE FOCUSED BOTH IN BEAUTIFICATION AND FUNCTIONALITY IN TERMS OF WATER RUN OFF AND CONTROL AND THINGS LIKE THAT. ALL THINGS OF WHICH WE DESIGN.

BUT LONG ANSWER TO YOUR SORT QUESTION, WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT THE TREE DESIGN WILL BE. WE HAVE REPLACED ABOUT 20 TREES AROUND THE FACILITY ERLIER THIS YEAR WHICH WE WERE BASICALLY IMPROVEMENTS TO THE DRAINAGE AND IMMEDIATE AREA AROUND THE BUILDING BUT THIS WILL GO INTO THE PARKING LOT AND REPLACE MUCH OF THE ASPHALT SURFACES WITH GREEN SURFACES

AND WATER CONTROL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MIC] >> R. DOROTHY: I'M HAPPY YOU ARE CHOOSING TO STAY IN WORTHINGTON, THE IMPROVEMENTS ARE BENEFICIAL TO ALL OF US, THOUGH WE DON'T GET TO SEE THEM EVERYDAY. I REALLY LIKE THE PLAN AND I APPRECIATE YOU COMING OUT TONIGHT AND I WISH YOU THE BEST AND I HOPE THIS IS DONE FAST AND WELL.

>> YOU ARE CERTAINLY WELCOME. I'M SURE YOU WILL BE PROUD WHEN IT'S DONE. IT'S SOMETHING WE ARE EXCITED

TO BE WORKING ON AND DESIGNING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MIC] >> THE COLOR FOR THE CORNICE, I THINK YOU IDENTIFIED AS BURGUNDY?

>> IT IS. IT'S A COMPANY COLOR, THAT

BURGUNDY. >> I SEE.

>> WE ARE WORKING WITH THE NEIGHBORHOOD DESIGN CENTER.

WE DON'T HAVE AN INTERIOR DESIGN PERSON IN OUR STAFF, SO WE LEAVE MUCH OF THAT TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD DESIGN.

I THINK IN THAT PICTURE, THAT TENDS TO BE LIGHTER THAN WHAT THE COLOR IS, IT'S A DEEPER MAROON THAN WHAT YOU SEE.

[00:25:02]

>> I WAS HOPING WE MIGHT GET A CARDINAL RED?

>> INTERNALLY. WE ARE QUITE PARTIAL TO OUR

CURRENT COLOR SCHEMES. >> YOU CAN CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT, WE WILL CALL IT WHAT WE WANT.

>> FAIR ENOUGH. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? I THINK WE ALL THANK YOU FOR THIS, BUT BEFORE WE CAN THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE PLANNING TO DO, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE.

OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. THAT IS PASSED.

THANK YOU VRY MUCH AND WE APPRECIATE WHAT D.L.Z. IS DOING AND WHAT A CORPORATE CITIZEN YOU HAVE BEEN OVER THE YEARS.

>> THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING

ONTO RESOLUTION NUMBER 53-2018 RIGHT OF WAY PERMIT RENEWAL FOR WIDE OPEN WEST OHIO L.L.C. INTRODUCED BY MR. ROBINSON.

MOVED FOR APPROVAL BY MR. SMITH, SECONDED BY MR. MYERS.

MR. GREESON? >> PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THIS ONE, AND I BELIEVE THE NEXT ONE ARE JUST RENEWALS OF EXISTING RIGHT OF WAY PERMITS, THEY ARE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE REGULATIONS OF THE CITY AND WE RECOMMEND APPROVAL. I THINK MS. STEWART, I WOULD BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE CONSENT AGENDA?

>> IT SEEMS THIS IS SOMETHING WE COULD DO ON A CONSENT AGENDA.

>> THIS IS SOMETHING WE COULD DO, GIVEN THE VOLUME OF ACTIVITY THIS EVENING WE DIDN'T THINK IT WARRANTED THAT.

WE TYPICALLY TEND TO EMPLOY THAT STRATEGY FOR MEETING MANAGEMENT. WE TEND TO EMPLOY THOSE STRATEGIES AT THE END OF THE YEAR WHEN WE HAVE LARGE NUMBER

OF ROUTINE CONTRACTS TO APPROVE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COMMENTS? IF NOT, ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. OPPOSED LIKE SIGN.

HIM. >> I HAVE NO OBJECTION TO DR.

QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR.

I THINK SHE WILL DO A GREAT JOB WITH IT.

>> THANK YOU. SO WE ARE SHORT STAFFD IN OUR 9-1-1 DISPATCH COMMUNICATION CENTER.

AND WE ARE LOOKING AT HOW WE PROVIDE THAT SERVICE AND CONSIDERING WHETHER W MIGHT CHOOSE TO CONSOLIDATE WITH ANOTHER ENTITY. IN THE MEANTIME WE KNOW WE ARE SHORT STAFFED AND PEOPLE ARE WORKING A LOT OF EXTRA TIME AND SHIFTS IN OVERTIME. THEY ARE DOING A GREAT JOB FOR US BUT IT'S GETTING VERY WARYING.

WE WANT TO LOOK AT PAY SCALE, THIS RESOLUTION ADJUSTS IT TO MODIFY TO A TWO-STEP RANGE FOR OUR DISPATCHERS AND SET THEIR COMPENSATION GENERALLY IN LINE WITH WHAT IS CURRENTLY THE TOP OF OUR CURRENT RANGE SO WE CAN LOOK TO ATTRACT SOME PEOPLE INTO THE CENTER, MOST LIKELY ON A PART-TIME BASIS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE ASSISTANCE TO THOSE WORKERS.

>> ADDITIONAL OVERTIME FROM OUR CURRENT COMMUNICATIONS TECHNICIANS WHICH WE ARE DOING NOW.

>> THERE'S A POSSIBILITY WE COULD BE PULLING PATROL MEN OFF THE STREET IN ORDER TO STAFF OUR COMM CENTER?

>> THIS IS A CRITICAL SERVICE. IT NEEDS TO BE STAFFED 24 HOURS A DAY 7 DAYS A WEEK. WE MUST HAVE ADEQUATE STAFFING IN THE CENTER. IF WE AREN'T ABLE TO ATTRACT ADDITIONAL PEOPLE IT'S LOOKING ON OUR EXISTING STAFF ON AN

OVERTIME CENTER. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THIS IS A PSSIBLE WAY TO RESOLVE A CRITICAL PROBLEM.

>> SEEMS MORE THAN JUSTIFIED TO ME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COMMENTS.

IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? 55-2018 IS PASSED.
