[00:00:09]

EMPLPLEASE CALL THE ROLL.

EVERYONE PLEASE RISE AND PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG.

YOU. BEFORE WE GET STARTED.

SOME STUDENTS IN THE ROOM. I LIKE TO HAVE THEM TELL US WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT SCHOOL AND WHAT CLASS THEY ARE HERE FOR.

WE'LL START OVER THERE. >>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YOU ARE ALL IN THE SAME CLASS?

YES? >>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: GREAT. WHICH TROOP?

>> OF THOSE STUDENTS HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR WHAT WE'RE DOING, DON'T HESITATE TO RAISE YOUR HAND.

[5.A. Caboose Donation from the Rutherford Family]

WE MIGHT HAVE THINGS WE'RE USED TO A LOT OF THE MATERIALS, YOU MIGHT NOT BE. BUT WE'LL GO FORWARD AND WE'LL START OUR MEETING WITH A VERY SPECIAL PRESENTATION.

MR. GREESON, DO YOU WANT TO DO THE HONORS?

>> THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

I WANT TO WELCOME THE FAMILY AND TURN IT OVER TO MR. HURLY WHO IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT A DONATION THEY ARE MAKING OF A CABOOSE TO THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. MR. HURLY.

>> MR. THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, MADAM PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF CITY COUNCIL. WHENEVER YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT IS A COOL PROJECT AND A GREAT PARTNERSHIP IT TAKES A LOT OF PEOPLE TO PULL IT OFF. SHOWED A PLAN FOR THE PARK AND ITS FUTURE. ONE IDEA STAFF HAD FROM OBSERVING PEOPLE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE WERE CHILDREN.

I WITNESSED IT IN MY OWN OFFICE AS THE KIDS OF STAFF AND OTHER KIDS THAT MAKE THEIR WAY UP AND DOWN THE HALLWAY ARE GLUED TO THE WINDOWS WHEN A TRAIN IT GOING BY.

WOULDN'T IT BE COOL IF WE HAD AN OBSERVATION AREA.

YOU WILL SEE PEOPLE STANDING THERE WATCHING FOR THE TRAINS.

ONE OF THE IDEAS AND CONCEPTS WE PUT INTO OUR PLANNING PROCESS, WHICH BECAUSE WE'RE SO FOCUSED ON OTHER ASPECTS OF THE PLAN WAS OUR TRAIN OBSERVATION AREA. THIS IS, AGAIN, IF YOU LOOK AT OUR NOTES, THE BIGGER PLAN, KIND OF AS YOU COME OUT OF THE COMMUNITY CENTER IF YOU GO TO THE NORTH AND EAST TOWARDS RAILROAD TRACKS YOU WILL SEE THAT AREA AND THERE IS IT IS BLOWN UP A LITTLE BIT. WE WEREN'T SURE EXACTLY WHAT THAT WOULD BE. AS WE STARTED TO DEVELOP THE PLANS OUR GOOD PARTNERS WITH THE WORTHINGTON ROTARY CLUB CAME ALONG THAT TIMELINE AND SAID WE WANT TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE CITY AND THINK ABOUT THE NEXT PROJECT.

AS WE DESCRIBED DIFFERENT PROJECTS THEY FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS IDEA. RIGHT AWAY IF YOU KNOW PETER, HE'S A VERY CREATIVE GUY AND BILL AND WE STARTED TO BRAINSTORM. WE WANTED SOME SORT OF A CABOOSE OR TRAIN CAR THAT COULD BE THE FOCAL POINT OF THIS, MAYBE

[00:05:01]

OPENED UP FOR TOURS, HAVE EDUCATIONAL COMPONENT.

SO ROTARY AGREED TO LOCATE ONE. THEY WERE WORKING ON THAT.

HAD FOLLOWED A COUPLE OF LEADS. HAD NOT HAD A LOT OF LUCK.

WHEN I SAY MEANT TO BE, SOME WOULD SAY BY DUMB LUCK.

JOE SHOWED UP TO TALK TO MR. GREESON ABOUT THE DONATION OF A CABOOSE IN THEIR YARD IN UPPER ARLINGTON.

LUCKILY HE REACHED OUT TO ME AND OUR FRIENDS AT ROTARY.

EXCITEDLY WE SCHEDULED A TRIP DOWN TO TAKE A LOOK AND GET OUR FIRST LOOK AT THE CABOOSE. YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF THEIR FAMILY GATHERED IN FRONT OF THE CABOOSE.

IT WAS BUILT IN 1922. THERE WAS A GREAT BIT OF HISTORY WITH IT. I DON'T READ IT ALL TO YOU.

BUT GOING BACK TO MR. RUTHERFORD WHO GREW UP WITH A LOVE OF TRAINS AND HE AND HIS WIFE DOING SOME TRAVELING.

IT LOOKS LIKE LIKE 1967 WHEN THEY LEARNED THAT CABOOSES WERE GOING BY THE WAY SIDE AND THERE IS GOING TO BE SOME AVAILABLE.

HE ARRANGED TO PURCHASE THIS ONE, A 1922 CABOOSE.

ALL THE OGISTICS OF GETTING A CABOOSE GETTING IN YOUR BACK YARD, WE'RE TRYING TO GET IT OUT OF SOMEONE'S BACKYARD, WHICH IS A BIT OF A CHALLENGE. THE OTHER INTERESTING THING AS YOU LOOK ABOUT IT AS I NOW TOLD ME, A LOT OF PEOPLE DO KNOW ABOUT THIS CABOOSE. IT SEEMS TO BE A BIT OF A LOCAL LANDMARK. WHEN I WAS SHARING WITH MY STAFF OR VERY OWN MELISSA HINEMAN HAD BEEN THERE AND SWAM OUT OF THAT CABOOSE ALONG WITH OTHER KIDS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE HAD SIGNIFICANT FAMILY EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES AT THE CABOOSE. CERTAINLY, NOW AS YOU SEE BOTH THE CABOOSE AND FAMILY AND CERTAINLY THE CONNECTION TO WORTHINGTON WITH THE RUTHERFORD FAMILY FUNERAL HOMES MAKES THIS A VERY NEAT PROJECT FOR ALL OF US TO BE A PART OF.

SO HERE IS PICTURES AS YOU CAN SEE.

IT'S A WOOD CABOOSE. THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB.

THEY HAVE THE STENCILSES. IT'S ABLE TO BE REPRINTED WITH THE AUTHENTIC LOOK OF THE CABOOSE.

I KNOW IT'S HARD TO SEE BUT YOU CAN SEE THE INSIDE AND HOW IT WAS PUT TOGETHER AND HAS THE ORIGINAL STAMPING OF THE 1922.

AND SOME PICTURES THERE. IT SETS ON A SHORT PIECE OF TRACK. IT SITS UNDERNEATH IT.

WE CAN SEE IT AS WE TALK ABOUT THE PROJECT.

AS WE TALK ABOUT THE PROJECT AND HOW IT WILL FIT.

WE'LL HAVE DECISIONS TO MAKE AS WHEN CAN IT BE OPEN, HOW O MAKE IT CCESSIBLE, WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION CAN WE GLEAN BOTH ON THE HISTORY OF THIS SPECIFIC CABOOSE AND OUR FRIEND FIGURING OUT HOW TO TALK ABOUT THE TRACKS AND WHAT PEOPLE ARE SEEING, THE TRAIN SCHEDULES ND THINGS OF THAT NATURE.

IT'S AN EXCITING PROJECT. THE ROTARY IN ADDITION TO HELPING US THIS FAR, COMING UP WITH A CABOOSE AND OPPORTUNITY ARE IN CHARGE OF GETTING IT MOVED.

THEY HAVE COMMITTED TO HELP WITH GETTING IT MOVED AND THEN THE REBURBISH AND ESTABLISHMENT WE TAKE ON THE LONG-TERM MAINTENANCE ONCE IN PLACE AND UP AND GOING WITH THE HELP OF AN ONGOING PARTNERSHIP THERE. WE DRAW AND NOT ONLY THE CENTRAL OHIO MODEL AILROAD CLUB WE HAVE OTHER RAILROAD RESOURCES HERE IN WORTHINGTON THAT WE WOULD DRAW UP ON AS WELL AS A PART OF THIS PROJECT. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CABOOSE. OBVIOUSLY, I THINK THE FAMILY THEY ENJOY TALKING ABOUT IT. SO I DON'T KNOW IF WE AN PROD THEM UP IF THERE ARE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROJECT.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR TONIGHT IS A MOTION OF ACCEPTANCE.

WHAT WE'RE ON THE HOOK FOR WITH FAMILIES, PROVIDE THEM A LETTER WE'RE ACCEPTING THE DONATIONISM I BELIEVE MR. GREESON SUGGESTION, MR. LINDSAY, YOU GUYS WOULD MAKE A MOTION ACCEPTING THE DONATION AND THAT'S THE EXTENT OF THE ACTUAL ACTION WE WOULD NEED THIS EVENING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FIRST OF ALL, I WANTS TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE FAMILY. THIS IS JUST MARVELOUS.

WE HAVE BEEN HEARING ABOUT WANTING SOME SORT OF TRAIN, SOME WAY FOR THE KIDS O WATCH TRAINS FOR QUITE SOME TIME.

IT'S WONDERFUL BOTH BOARDS ARE WORKING TOGETHER.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS BEFORE WE DO THE

MOTION? >> YES.

[00:10:01]

I WANT TO REITERATE OUR THANKS AND APPRECIATION FOR THE RUTHERFORDS, ROTARY AND PARKS AND RECREATION.

WE HAVE A PICTURE OF THE PARK'S MASTER PLAN, THIS ENVISION TO HAVE SOMETHING LIKE A CABOOSE TO BEGIN WITH OR WAS THIS PART OF

THE MASTER PLAN HEN WE GOT IT? >> IT WAS A PART OF THE VISION FOR A PARK TO HAVE A TRAIN OBSERVATION AREA.

OUR INITIAL, WHEN WE SHARED THE PROJECT WITHOUT ANY SCOPE TO IT, WITH OUR FRIENDS AT ROTARY, IT WAS REALLY KIND OF THEIR BRAIN CHILD TO START TALKING ABOUT IF WE CAN FIND A CAR AND PLACE IT AND BUILD DECKING, YOU KNOW, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE, IT WAS A WORK IN PROGRESS.

AND WHETHER WE WOULD WE ABLE TO FIND ONE, THEN YOU AVE TO BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO PAY FOR IT.

WHICH IS THE KEY HERE, GETTING IT DONATED.

THERE IS A BIG COST TO GET IT MOVED.

THERE ARE A LOT OF CHALLENGES. WE WERE NOT SURE WHAT IT WAS GOING TO LOOK LIKE AT THE END. THIS IS A VERY EXCITING OPPORTUNITY. WE KNOW OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE SOMETHING SIMILAR. SO WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO DEAL WITH IT IN TERMS OF WHEN IT CAN BE OPEN AND VIEWED. WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT WAYS YOU MANAGE HE MAINTENANCE OF IT AND SO FORTH.

THERE ARE OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE DONE SIMILAR THINGS AND WE'RE LEARNING FROM THEM. IN ANTICIPATION HOW TO HANDLE IT

ONCE WE GET IT. >> AS A LIFE LONG MODEL RAILROADER AND A CURRENT ACTIVE CARD CARRYING MEMBER OF THE CA, TRAIN COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION, I CAN'T IMAGINE A GREATER GIFT TO THE CITY. I'M DELIGHTED THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ARE YOU MO MOVING TO DONATION?

>> I ALWAYS WANTED ONE IN MY BACKYARD.

>> SECOND. >> IF ANYONE WANTED TO SAY ANYTHING, YOU ARE WELCOME TO. YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

>>

A LITTLE INTERPRETATION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THAT'S WONDERFUL. OKAY.

ANYBODY ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SAY SOMETHING BEFORE WE VOTE? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? IT HAS PASSED.

AND AGAIN, WE CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH.

BOTH THE ROTARY AND THE FAMILY. THE RUTHERFORD FAMILY.

WE JUST LOVE IT AND WE KNOW IT'S GOING TO BE GREAT FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. IT'S GOING TO BE ALL GES.

I'M SURE IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE I BRING MY GRANDCHILDREN.

WE THANK YOU BECAUSE WE KNOW IT'S SOMETHING WE'LL LIKE VERY MUCH. THANK YOU.

YOU, AGAIN, WE APPRECIATE IT. WE HAVE ANOTHER SPECIAL PRESENTATION THAT WAS NOT ON THE AGENDA.

BUT I'M GOING TO LET MR. HURLY GO FORWARD SINCE WE HAD THE FLOOR BEFORE AND SOMETHING DIRECTLY TO WHAT HE KNOWS

ABOUT. >> THANK YOU, AGAIN, PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. I WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE TIMING SINCE I HAVE MELISSA HYMEN FROM STAFF.

SHE'S THE ONE MOST DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MANY, MANY GREAT SPECIAL EVENTS AND MARKETING TYPE OF ACTIVITIES OF OUR DEPARTMENT. I WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY. BECAUSE THE OHIO PARKS AND RECREATION ASSOCIATION HAS ANNOUNCED IT'S 2018 AWARD WINNERS: . THIS YEAR 150 PROGRAMS AND

[00:15:06]

PROJECTS AND 14 AGENTS TOOK AWAY AWARDS.

I'M EXCITED TO TELL YOU WE WERE ONE OF THEM.

THE AWARDS ARE JUDGED BY A PANEL OF PARKS AND RECREATION PROFESSIONALS FROM AROUND THE STATE.

THE FIRST, WE HAVE TWO AWARDS. ONE OF THEM WAS KEY TO THE CITY. SOME OF YOU THAT MIGHT BE A FAMILIAR THING. MELISSA HEAD UP A KEY TO THE CITY EVENTS THAT AS A VERY UNIQUE STAFF PLACED KEYS ALL AROUND THE CITY IN DIFFERENT PARKS.

IT STARTED WITH PARKS, ND BY THE TIME IT WAS DONE BUSINESSES AND OTHER FOLKS JOINED IN. SOME SOMEONE WENT OUT AND FOUND A KEY THEY COULD HOLD ONTO IT. AT THE END OF THE MONTH WE HAVE A CONCERT OPPORTUNITY UNLOCK A PRIZE BOX WHERE PRIZES HAD BEEN DONATED, LIKE OVER ONE THOUSAND WORTH OF PRICES AND GIVE AWAYS.

ALL THROUGHOUT THE PARKS, A LOT OF BUSINESSES PRI PARTICIPATED. ADDED BONUS HOW IT HELPED CROSS PROMOTE OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES AND THEIR INVOLVEMENT.

SO THE ONLY HICCUP WE HAD AND THIS IS THE TENT THEY HAD SET UP AT THE END OF THE EVENT. YOU HAVE ALL THESE KEYS.

THILL BE AWESOME, HOW MANY PEOPLE TRIED IT KEY? THE FIFTH PERSON OPENED THE BOX.

SO WE DIDN'T HAVE THE BUILD UP WE EXPECTED.

EVERYONE WHO BROUGHT A KEY GOT A PASS TO THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND A SMALL PRIZE. I THINK THEY WERE HOPING IT WOULD TAKE MORE DRAMA TO GET THE KEY.

THERE IS IS THE ONER. THEY GOT A BIKE RIDE WITH THE CITY MANAGER AND POLICE CHIEF. THAT EVENT TOOK FIRST PLACE IN THE SPECIAL EVENTS UNDER THE PROGRAMS CATEGORY.

AND THEN I DON'T HAVE PICTURES, BUT WE GOT A SECOND PLACE FOR A PROGRAM THEY PUT TOGETHER CALLED BORDER BATTLE.

AN ONGOING BA BATTLE BACK AND FORTH AND THE WASH TUNA COMMUNITY CENTER IN ANN ARBOR MICHIGAN, PART OF THE BUILD UP TO THE MICHIGAN OHIO STATE GAME.

IT WAS A SIMILARLIY SIZED COMMUNITY CENTER BASED ON HOW MANY PEOPLE CHECKED IN EACH DAY AND ON THE SIDE THEY DID A FOOD DRIVE THAT WENT ON FOR A MONTH. THEY CALLED IS BORDER BATTLE.

YOU PROBABLY SEE PEOPLE WITH A T-SHIRT ON.

IT TOOK SECOND PLACE IN THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS CATEGORY.

SO WE WERE EXCITED ABOUT THAT. AS WE HAVE BEEN PLACING AN EMPHASIS ON HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

IT WAS NICE RECOGNITION. WE'LL ECEIVE THOSE AWARDS AT

THE CONFERENCE IN FEBRUARY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HAVING BEEN A FORMER MEMBER MYSELF FOR YEARS, I APPRECIATE HOW DIFFICULT IT IS AND PRESTIGIOUS THE AWARDS ARE.

VERY TIGHT COMPETITION. WE'RE HONORED AND CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THE FORESIGHT, THOUGHTS AND LEADERSHIP AND GETTING ALL THE VOLUNTEERS AND STAFF AND EVERYBODY WORKING WITH YOU BECAUSE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN WITHOUT A LOT OF PEOPLE WORKING TOGETHER. CONGRATULATIONS.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THIS IS A WILSON BRIDGE ROAD ROAD WATER LINE PROJECT.

WE HAVE DISCUSSED SEVERAL TIMES NOW.

INITIALLY INTENDED TO START THIS PROJECT THIS WINTER BUT FOR A VARIETY OF EASONS WILL PUT IT OFF UNTIL EARLY SPRING AND HOPE TO GET BETTER BIDS IN THAT REGARD.

PROBABLY START ENOLATE FEBRUARY, EARLY MARCH.

LESS THAN SIX MONTHS LIFE CYCLE OF THE PROJECT.

TYPICALLY LIFE CYCLE IS ABOUT 50 YEARS DEPENDING ON WHAT SORT OF PRESSURE ISSUES AND MATERIALS IT'S INSTALLED WITH.

CURRENT WATER LINE HAD HUGE BREAKEN ISSUES.

WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING THIS UNDERWAY IN THE VERY NEAR

FUTURE.WHAT IN TERSECTION? >> WEST OF THE INTERSECTION OF WILSON BRIDGE, HUNTLEY ROAD. ON THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY OF OUR COMMUNITY. IT WILL GO FROM THERE ALL THE WAY DOWN TO FROM WEST OF THE RAILROAD TRACKS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, REPLACE THAT ENTIRE SECTION OF WATER LINE. WE HAD A LOT OF BREAKS SO IT WILL REPLACE THAT LINE AND MITIGATE THOSE BREAKS AND ALLOWS US TO PAVE THE ROADWAY. NEVER B EEN STUCK IN TRAFFIC IN THEY AREA. PART OF A PROJECT ON A -- ONGOING PROJECT WE'RE DOING WITH ODOT AND EDERAL FUNDING TO REDO THAT WHOLE INTERSECTION WHERE WILSON BRIDGE, HUNTLEY AND WORTHINGTON, GALENA COME TOGETHER AND GO UNDER THE 270 BRIDGE.

I WANT TO THANK YOU MR. WHITE HEAD FOR ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHEN THE PROJECT WOULD START, HOW LONG IT WOULD TAKE, THE LIFE CYCLE. AS A ENGINEER, I LOOK AT THE LIFE CYCLE, THE MATERIAL, HOW MUCH IT'S GOING TO COST FOR

[00:30:01]

MAINTENANCE OR REPAIR FOR THE LIFE OR BIT OF EQUIPMENT OR PROCESS WE USE IN THE CITY. AND YOU HAVE BEEN ANSWERING THOSE QUESTIONS UP FRONT. SO I DON'T HAVE THAT MUCH TO ASK. AND WE FOUND OUT THAT THE EXISTING ONE IS MUCH OLDER AND EXPERIENCING A LOT OF REPAIRS THAT ARE COSTLY AND TIME CONSUMING.

WHAT PART OF THE CITY THIS ATER ALONE SERVES?

>> TH THERE IS A PLETHORA IN THAT AREA.

THE BOOSTER STATION AND FEED ALONE TO THE ANIZER BUSH AREA.

MOST WATERLINES ARE LOOPED. THAT FEEDS THAT GENERAL VICINITY

AROUND THE COMMUNITY CENTER. >> WE'RE TRACKING OUR WATERLINE BREAKS AND LOOKING AT WHAT OTHER PORTIONS MIGHT BE UP TO GET REPLACED ONGOING IN THE FUTURE, IS THAT CORRECT?

>> OUR OPERATING BUDGET FOR 2019 WE ANTICIPATE STARTING A STUDY TO IDENTIFY HOT SPOTS AND BREAKS AND CREATE THE MAGNITUDE THEY HAVE AND CREATE A PRIORITIZATION OF WHAT MAKES MOST SENSE TO SPEND THE MONEY ON FIRST. WE'LL CREATE THAT MATRIX AND THEY'LL BY A WAITING SYSTEM BASED ON COST AND IMPACT AND A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT THINGS, LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING THAT

STARTED SOON. >> IT SOUNDS EXCITING TO E,

SO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON.

COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS? YES?

>> REFRESH MY MEMORY, WHAT IS THE STATUS ON THE PERMIT OF THE

MONKEYS BAR? >> YES, COUNCILMEMBER FOUST, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. AS PART OF THE RESOLUTION OF THAT OBJECTION THAT WE DID FILE AS PART OF OUR AGREEMENT TO WITHDRAW THE OBJECTION, THE PERMIT ITSELF WEPT INTO SAFE KEEPING WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF LIQUOR CONTROL, WITH THE PRECISION THAT IT COULD NOT BE USED -- PROVISION -- IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING ANECDOTALLY FROM SOMEONE ON STAFF, I'M TRYING TO REMEMBER WHO TOLD ME THIS. THEY WERE LOOKING AT A POSSIBLE DIFFERENT USE OF THAT LOCATION. A NON-LIQUOR OR ESTAURANT ESTABLISHMENT. I DON'T KNOW THAT'S MOVED FORWARD COMPLETELY IN THE LEASING.

BUT THAT'S THE STATUS. SO THE PERMIT IS OUT THERE.

IT COULD BE TRICKS TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION ON OCCASION WE HAVE HAD PERMITS COME IN FROM OTHER JURISDICTIONS.

IN THE SAME WAY, THIS COULD GO OUT TO A DIFFERENT OCATION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT'S NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LIST,

CORRECT? >> CORRECT.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE NEED TO DISCUSS BEFORE WE MAKE A DECISION. FOR EXAMPLE, LAND ACQUISITION LIKE WE'RE DOING TONIGHT. YOU DON'T WANT TO DISCUSS LAND YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT BUYING IF YOU HAVEN'T DECIDED TO BUY IT OR HAVEN'T GOTTEN AN AGREEMENT WITH THE SELLER, OTHERWISE THE PRICES CAN GO CRAZY. COLLECTIVE BARGAINING IS ANOTHER AREA, BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS, PERSONNEL ISSUES.

THOSE THINGS NEED TO BE DONE. IF A DECISION IS MADE THAT IS MADE OUT IN THE PUBLIC. WE WANTED TO EXPLAIN WHAT EXECUTIVE SESSION IS SO YOU KNOW AND CAN UNDERSTAND.
