>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. I'M GOING TO CALL THE MONDAY,

[1. Call To Order]

JULY 1ST MEETING OF THE WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL.

MS. THRESS, COULD YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL? WILL EVERYONE PLEASE RISE FOR THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: PLEASE BE SEATED.

WE NORMALLY HAVE VISITOR COMMENTS BEFORE WE MOVE TO THE AGENDA. I HAVE ONE VISITOR COMMENT.

IT MIKE MAKE SENSE TO START WITH THE PRESENTATIONS AND MOVE TO THE COMMENTED CARD. WITH THAT, I'M GOING TO TURN

[5.A. Recognition - Bystander Lifesaving Response Executive Summary: The Fire & EMS Division will recognize the actions of bystanders at an emergency event in which CPR and an AED were used to save a man's life.]

THIS OVER TO MS. STEWART IS GOING TO INTRODUCE US.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR COMING HERE TODAY.

AND I WANT TO THANK ALL THREE TV STATIONS FOR SUPPORTING GOOD NEWS AND CELEBRATING SOMETHING AS WONDERFUL AS WHAT WE'RE

CELEBRATING TODAY. >> THANK YOU MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. AS YOU KNOW OUR FIRE AND EMERGENCY MEDICAL DIVISION STRIVES TO PROVIDE HIGH LEVEL AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES TO OUR COMMUNITY.

I WILL SAY WE'LL BE RECOGNIZING THEM A LITTLE LATER ON THE AGENDA. FIRST, WE WANT TO GIVE RECOGNITION TO INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN ADVANCE OF OUR PARAMEDICS BEING ABLE TO ARRIVE ON SCENE.

WHEN INDIVIDUALS ARE BYSTANDERS DURING EMERGENCY MEDICAL EVENTS THERE ARE THINGS THEY CAN DO TO PROVIDE SERVICE IN ADVANCE OF PARAMEDICS PROVIDING. I'M GOING TO TURNOVER TO CHIEF

BAILOT. >> IF YOU DON'T MIND, I'M GOING TO MOVE TO THE PODIUM. PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF CU FOR ALLOWING TIME TO MAKE A VERY SPECIAL PRESENTATION.

IT'S ONE THAT I'M HONORED WHEN I GET TO DO THESE TYPE OF PRESSES.

IT BOILS OWN TO PEOPLE DOING THE RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT TIME FOR THE RIGHT EASONS. IT MAKES ME FEEL REALLY GOOD INSIDE TO DO THIS. ON A BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY, FRIDAY MAY 2 4TH, 2019, A GROUP OF MEN LEAGUE'S SOFTBALL PLAYERS WERE ENJOYING THE WEATHER PLAYING AT MCCORD PARK.

SUDDENLY AS OFTEN HAPPENNESS IN THESE TYPE OF TRAGEDIALIC EVENTS. ONE OF THE PLAYERS DROPPED TO THE GROUND ON THE INFIELD. QUICKLY RECOGNIZING THERE WAS A MEDICAL CONDITION, A MEDICAL EMERGENCY THAT WAS OCCURRING, FIVE PLAYERS JUMPED INTO ACTION. THEY READILY RECOGNIZED THAT JOE ARYAN, A 66-YEAR-OLD PLAYER WAS UNCONSCIOUSES, HE WASN'T BREATHING AND HE DIDN'T HAVE A PULSE.

THEY STARTED CPR, YELLED FOR SOMEONE TO CALL 911.

AND GRABBED THE LEAGUE'S AUTOMATIC DEFIBRILLATION UNIT.

IT'S A DEVICE THAT THAT'S JUST LIKE THIS ONE.

THIS HAPPENS TO BE THE ONE IN MY STAFF CAR.

THAT ANYONE CAN USE ITH TRAINING.

AND IT'S A LIFE SAVER IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS THIS WILL TALK TO YOU ABOUT. AND IT HELPS SAVE LIVES WHAT I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT HERE IN A MINUTE.

THE AUDIBLE PROMPTS, AS I SAID, THE MACHINE HAS N AUDIBLE.

IT WILL ANALYZE THE PATIENT'S HEART RHYTHM AND RECOMMEND OR NOT TO DO AN ELECTRICAL SHOCK. WHICH IT'S A PRESS OF THE BUTTON AND HE MACHINE WILL DO IT. AN ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN RESET SO TO SPEAK THE HEART AND GET THE PERSON'S HEARTBEATING NORMALLY.

I WANT TO TELL YOU A LITTLE STORY ABOUT THE AED THAT WAS USED AT THIS EVENT. MR. TOM ROLLINS USED TO PLAY BALL IN FLORIDA. THEY HAD AN AED UNIT IN THE BALL NEEDLES. HE WORKED TIRELESSLY FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS TO SECURE FUNDING TO BUY AN AED SIMILAR TO THE ONE

[00:05:06]

HERE FOR THE LEAGUE. AND THAT AED, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IS WHAT SAVED MR. ARYAN'S LIFE.

SORRY. ALONG WITH THE CPR AND THE RAPID THINKING OF THE PLAYERS. UNFORTUNATELY, HE PASSED AWAY LAST YEAR. SO HE DIDN'T GET TO WITNESS THE WORK THAT HE PUT IN TO GET THE AED IN PLACE.

HOWEVER, HIS WIFE, JUDY ROLLINS IS HERE TONIGHT.

MS. ROLLINS, WOULD YOU STANDUP FOR US PLEASE? VERY PROUD OF YOUR HUSBAND. THEY FOLLOWED THE STEP BY STEP DIRECTIONS ANNOUNCED BY THE AED AND BASED ON THE INTERPRETATION AND ADVICE OF THE MACHINE DELIVERED TWO ELECTRIC SHOCKS.

WHEN CAPITAL MULLIGAN AND TEAM ARRIVED, HE BYSTANDERS WERE CONTINUING WITH CPR. AND EXPLAINED THE SITUATION AND BROUGHT THEM UP TO SPEED. AFTER CONNECTING THE EKG TO THE PATIENT AND SEEING THE ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY OF HIS HEART, HIS HEART BEGAN BEATING ON ITS OWN, ONCE AGAIN.

OUR TEAM ALONG WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF A COLUMBUS MEDIC CREW, TRANSPORTED HIM TO RIVERSIDE METHODIST HOSPITAL WHERE HE HAD TWO STINTS PLACED IN HIS CARDIAC ARTERIES.

IT'S A SMALL, METAL-MESH TUBE. THE SURGEONS PLACE IT INSIDE THE CORONARY ARTERIES OF THE HEART AND IT ALLOWS THE BLOOD TO FLOW THROUGH. THAT WAS WHAT WAS CAUSING THE EMERGENCY WAS BLOCKAGE IN THERE. BECAUSE OF THE ACTIONS OF THE FIVE, HIS FIVE FELLOW BALL PLAYERS, HE WALKED OUT OF THE HOSPITAL IN 36 HOURS. IT'S AMAZING.

AMAZING WHAT MODERN MEDICINE. IT STEMS BACK TO DOING THE RIGHT THING, THE RIGHT TIME FOR THE RIGHT REASON.

AND THESE GENTLEMEN I'M GOING TO INTRODUCE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SAVING A LIFE. OUR MEDICAL DIRECTOR, DR. DOUG RUND IS HERE. I'M GOING TO ASK YOU TO JOIN MY AT THE PODIUM. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE A

COUPLE OF WORDS TO SAY. >> WE'RE SO ELATED WITH THIS OUTCOMMAND GRATEFUL TO YOU FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN.

WE HAVE EXCEPTIONAL MEDICS AND FIRE DEPARTMENT.

THE OUTCOMES DEPEND ON IMMEDIATE CPR AND PUBLIC ACCESS DEFIBRILLATION. WE'RE THRILLED WITH HIS OUTCOME. WE HAVE WONDERFUL OUTCOMES, I THINK AND TREMENDOUS EXAMPLES OF GREAT CPR AT THE BEGINNING AND A GREAT OUTCOME. WE'RE HRILLED TO BE HERE AND GRATEFUL TO EVERYONE. THANK YOU.

>> BEFORE I BRING UP THE LIFE SAVERS, IF JOE ARYAN COULD STANDUP FOR US.

>> GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE. >> GLAD TO BE HERE.

>> IF I COULD ASK DOUG SAN SANDERSON, BOB SCHULTZ, BOB THEATER AND AND CARL RANKEN, STEVE CLEMONS WAS UNABLE TO BE HERE TONIGHT. GENTLEMEN, ON BEHALF OF THE WORTHINGTON DIVISION OF FIRE AND EMS, I'M PLEASED TO PRESENT EACH OF YOU WITH THE CIVILIAN LIFE SAVER COMMENDATION.

IT'S A SMALL RECOGNITION OF WHAT YOU DID I BECAUSE OF YOUR ACTIONS, YOUR ACTIONS ALONE, YOUR QUICK THINKING, SAVED A LIFE AND THAT'S NO SMALL TASK. I'M GOING TO READ IT OFF HERE.

SIGNED DOUGLAS A. RUND MEDICAL DIRECTOR AND OHN BAILOT FIRE CHIEF.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF YOU GENTLEMEN WANTED TO SAY ANYTHING.

IF NOT, I UNDERSTAND. >> I WOULDN'T MIND.

I ALWAYS DO. WE ACTUALLY WERE -- WE HAVE A LOT OF EMS BACKGROUND AND POLICE AND FIRE THAT WAS THERE AT THAT TIME. AND ALL HE COMMUNITIES LIKE WORTHINGTON, DELAWARE, COLUMBUS, ANYBODY WHO PAYS TAXES GETS POLICE AND FIRE PROTECTION. THEY PAY FOR THAT AND THE TRAINING. THAT'S WHAT YOU DID FOR US.

[5.B. Lifeline EMS Bronze Plus Quality Achievement Award Executive Summary: The Worthington Division of Fire & EMS will be recognized by the American Heart Association with the Lifeline EMS Bronze Plus Quality Achievement Award.]

OPPORTUNITY. THANK YOU.

MR. STEWART, BACK TO YOU. >> I'M GOING TO INVITE CHIEF BAILOT TO DISCUSS THE NEXT AWARD RECOGNIZING OUR DIVISION OF FIRE

AND EMS. >> THANK YOU, AGAIN.

IT'S KIND OF FITTING THIS AWARD IS HAPPENING TONIGHT AS WELL.

TONIGHT THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION RECOGNIZES PRE-HOSPITAL CARE PROVIDERS PRESENTING THEM WITH A NATIONAL AWARD WHO EXCEL IN RECOGNIZING AND TREATING PATIENTS WITH A SUSPECTED MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION OR A HEART ATTACK.

WHEN THEY LOOK AT AN EKG THERE ARE SEVERAL ELECTRICAL CONDUCTION POINTS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HEART IS DOING, THAT WE LOOK AT. ONE OF THE AREAS IS CALLED AN ST SEGMENT. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE TRACING OF YOUR HEARTBEAT EVERYTHING HAS AN INITIAL.

BASICALLY WHEN THE HEART IS AT REST, IT'S A ST SEGMENT.

THAT IS IMPORTANT FOR PARAMEDICS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING.

IT'S BASICALLY AT REST. AN ELEVATION IN THE ST SEGMENT CAN INDICATE A PERSON IS HAVING A HEART ATTACK.

WE CALL THOSE A STEMMY, ST SEGMENT LI HEART ATTACK.

PREHOSPITAL AGENCIES THAT DELIVER STEMMY IDENTIFICATION PROVIDE 12 LEAD EGK ACCESS INTERPRETATION QUICKLY AND DEVELOP PROTOCOLS BASED ON NATIONAL STANDARDS THAT DRIVE THE OUTCOME OF STEMMY PATIENTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS AWARD THAT I'M GOING TO CALL UP HERE IN JUST A SECOND.

DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD, WHICH IS 018 ATA, THE

[00:15:03]

WORTHINGTON DIVISION OF FIRE AND EMS TREATED 337 PATIENTS WITH CHEST PAINS AND OTHER SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH HEART ATTACK.

THIS REPRESENTS 10% OF OUR TOTAL EMS RUNS.

PRETTY GOOD UMBER. THE AWARD I'M GOING TO CALL UP A GENTLEMAN IN JUST A SECOND. THE AWARD IS FOR THE DIVISION OF FIRE AND EMS. BUT THE AWARD TONIGHT IS ACTUALLY FOR ALL THESE GUYS IN THE BACK.

THEY ARE THE PROVIDERS. THEY ARE THE PROFESSIONALS.

THE ONES OUT THERE EVERY SINGLE DAY PROVIDING QUALITY, WONDERFUL CARE FOR OUR RESIDENTS AND COMMUNITY.

THE REST OF THE DEPARTMENT ISN'T HERE.

THERE IS A GOOD REPRESENTATION OF THE FOLKS THAT ACTUALLY EARNED THIS AWARD. I HAPPEN TO BE THE PERSON WHO GETS TO ACCEPT IT ON THEIR BEHALF.

THEY GET THE CREDITS FOR ALL OF THIS.

I WOULD ASK ALEX COON, THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION TO

COME UP PLEASE. >> THANK YOU, CHIEF.

IT'S GREAT TO BE HERE THIS EVENING.

YOU KNOW WHAT? NO, AS AN EMPLOYEE OF THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, THOSE ARE THE STORIES WE LOVE TO HEAR. THE CHAIN OF SURVIVAL WORK.

AND ALL THE WORK WE DO ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS, SAVED A LIFE.

YOU ARE DEFINITELY ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES.

NOT TOO MANY FOLKS SURVIVE CARDIAC ARREST BECAUSE FOLKS AREN'T DOING CPR AND DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO AUTOMATED DEFIBRILLATORS. CHIEF TOOK A LITTLE BIT OF MY THUNDER TALKING ABOUT HAVING ACCESS TO 12AEDS, TRAINING AND GUIDELINES THAT ARE WRITTEN BY THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION AMERICAN COLLEGE OF CARDIOLOGY AND PUTTING THOSE INTO PLACE.

WE LIKE TO THINK OF THOSE AS HIGH-FUNCTIONING AGENCIES THAT ARE MEETING GUIDELINES. IN AND AROUND THE COMMUNITY, JUST ABOUT EVERY AGENTS IS HE FUNCTIONING.

THIS AWARD LOOKS AT HIGH-QUALITY AND HOW YOU LEARN FROM THE DATA AND EXPERIENCES AND OUTCOMES AND TRYING TO O BETTER BY LOOKING AT THE DATA. WE TALK ABOUT THOSE BEING HIGH-FUNCTIONING, HIGH-QUALITY. IN THE UNITED STATES ABOUT 15,000 LICENSED AGENCY. 615 AGENCIES ARE GETTING HIS AWARD IN THE COUNTRY. AND 99 IN THE STATE OF OHIO ARE GETTING THIS AWARD. IT'S A VERY ELITE GROUP OF AGENCIES GETTING THIS AWARD. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE AWARD THERE ARE SEVERAL MEASURES WE ASK HE ACTIONS TO MEET.

75% OR MORE. ANYBODY HAVING SOME TYPE F ACUTE CARDIAC SYNDROME OR SIGN. DIFFICULTY BREATHING, CHEST PAIN, BACK PAIN, JAW PAIN, ANY OF THE OTHER SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS THAT ARE THERE THEY GET AN ECG. WE WANT THOSE WITHIN 10 MINUTES OF ARRIVAL BY THE EMS AGENCY. WE ONCE THE AGENCIES ONCE THEY HAVE A POSITIVE STEMMY TO NOTIFY THE HOSPITAL AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. THE LAST MEASURE IS IT THE ONE THAT MATTERS. GETTING THE HEART OPENING.

WHEN WE ASK AGENCIES GETTING THE AWARD FROM THE TIME THEY ARE FIRST EMS CONTACT, THE PARAMEDICS SEE A PATIENT TO THE TIME THEY GET THEM IN THE AMBULANCE, DRIVE THEM TO THE HOSPITAL AND GET TO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AND CATH LAB HAS TO BE 90 MINUTES. THAT'S PHENOMENAL.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT LIVES SAVED BECAUSE OF THE HARD WORK AND DEDICATION . IF YOU LOOK AT THE DATA FROM 2006 OR '07 MOST LIKELY TO HAVE HEART ATTACKS, THAT HAS GROWN BY ABOUT 100,000 IN FRANKLIN COUNTY.

THE NUMBER OF DEATHS HEART ATTACKS IS GOING DOWN.

COMPARED TO 2006, '07, 200 FEWER DEATH FROM HEART ATTACKS, EVEN THOUGH THE POPULATION HAS GONE UP SIGNIFICANTLY.

YOU SHOULD BE PROVIDE OF YOUR EMS PROVIDERS.

THEY ARE DOING A PHENOMENAL JOB. ON BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, I WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT WORTHINGTON FIRE AND EMS WITH A BRONZE PLUS PERFORMANCE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.

[00:20:06]

WE CERTAINLY, AS I MENTIONED, WE HAVE A GREAT TEAM.

THEY MAKE ME PROUD ABSOLUTELY EVERY SINGLE DAY.

IT'S LSO BECAUSE OF DR. RUND AND HIS LEADERSHIP AND THE PROTOCOLS AND THE EXPERTISE HE BRINGS TO THESE GUYS AND OUR DEPARTMENT, I'M HONORED TO ACCEPT THIS ON BEHALF OF THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE DIVISION OF FIRE AND EMS.

>> THANK YOU, CHIEF.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: AND THANK YOU, AGAIN, TO ALL OF OUR FIRE AND EMS MEMBERS FOR THE WONDERFUL WORK THAT YOU DO.

AND THE LIVES THAT YOU SAVE DAY-TO-DAY.

GO DOOR TO DOOR AND TALK TO PEOPLE ABOUT THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN WORTHINGTON. FIRE AND EMS COMES IN VERY OFTEN AND HOW APPRECIATIVE THE CITIZENS ARE AND THE RESIDENTS FOR THE WONDERFUL WORK YOU DO. THANK YOU, AGAIN.

I'M GOING TO GIVE EVERYONE A FEW MINUTES.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO STAY FOR THE WHOLE MEETING.

IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A MINUTE OR TWO AND SCOOT OUT, WE'LL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY. WE APPRECIATE YOU HERE.

DO WE HAVE A STUDENT IN THE AUDIENCE TONIGHT? NO? YOU LOOKED YOUNG ENOUGH.

OKAY. OKAY, SORRY.

> MOVING DOWN. YOU LOOK VERY YOUNG SO...

[4. Visitor Comments]

UM, MOVING ON, DAVID BALL HAS ASKED TO HAVE A FEW MOMENTS OF PRESENT. WE HAVE A TRADITION OF A

FIVE-MINUTE LIMIT FOR EVERYBODY. >> THAT'S FINE.

I DO APPRECIATE YOU SAYING I LOOK LIKE A STUDENT THOUGH.

I'LL BE BRIEF. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO FIND MORE OF A FAN OF PARKS AND GREEN SPACE THAN YOU WILL OF ME.

THIS MIGHT BE PREMATURE IT'S FROM A MIND BECAUSE I RECEIVED THIS OVER THE WEEKEND. YOU PROBABLY KNOW WHAT THIS IS.

A PETITION TO CONSIDER WHAT TO DO WITH THIS LOVELY PIECE OF LAND TO THE WEST OF US. AND IT SUGGESTS HOW THE CITYWIDE PAY WOULD BE CASH ON HAND. INCREASED REVENUE FROM HIGH STREET COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT, I SUGGEST IS PROBABLY A SPECULATIVE CONCEPT. SALE OF ON SITE PARCELS.

STATE AND FEDERAL GRANTS. AND PRIVATE FUNDRAISING.

WHICH IS A SPECULATIVE CONCEPT. NONE OF THAT MONEY IS IN POCKET.

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL PIECE AND YOU KNOW, LOVELY IDEAS ON THIS PARCEL OF LAND. I ENCOURAGE COUNCIL ASSUMING THIS PETITION DOES COME BEFORE YOU AT SOME POINT, TO REALLY, REALLY LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS REALLY, REALLY HARD AND UNDERSTAND THERE ARE A LOT OF PRIORITIES, A LOT OF GREEN-SPACE PRIORITIES IN THIS COMMUNITY. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE BIKE TRAILS THAT DON'T DO THIS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

MY TWO CENTS WORTH. IT WAS DROPPED ON MY DOOR STEP.

A LOT OF MY MONDAY NIGHTS ARE TAKEN UP WITH MY JOB. SINCE THIS WAS ON MY MIND, I WOULD COME AND SAY GIVE SERIOUS THOUGHT TO THE FINANCE OF THIS N IT COMES BEFORE YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE APPRECIATE YOU COMING AND SHARING Y YOUR COMMENTS.

BACK ONTO THE AGENDA. THE APPROVAL OF

[6. Approval of the Minutes]

OF THE MEETING MINUTES OF JUNE 10, 2019, JUNE 12, 2019 (SPECIAL), AND JUNE 17, 2019. ARE THERE CHANGES, CORRECTIONS, ADDITIONS? ANYTHING ANYBODY WANTS TO REVISE? MR. ROBINSON MOVES THE APPROVAL.

SECONDED BY MR. FOUST. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? MINUTES ARE DONE.

[7.A. Resolution No. 41-2019 School Resource Officer Agreement]

[00:25:05]

APPROVED. RESOLUTION NO. 41-2019 SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER AGREEMENT AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO AN AMENDMENT EXTENDING THE AGREEMENT WITH THE WORTHINGTON CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT FOR SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER SERVICES. INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH.

MOVED BY ADOPTION BY MR. MEYERS. SECONDED BY MS. DOROTHY.

MS. STEWART, I'LL TURN IT OVER TO YOU.

>> THANK YOU. AS COUNCIL I'M SURE RECALLS, LAST SUMMER YOU AUTHORIZED THE CITY TO ENTER AN AGREEMENT WITH WORTHINGTON SCHOOL DISTRICT TO PROVIDE A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER AT THOMAS WORTHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL.

THAT WAS FOR ONE YEAR. WE'RE BACK NOW THIS SUMMER SEEKING RENEWAL OF THAT AGREEMENT.

SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION HAS REQUESTED THAT AGREEMENT BE EXTENDED FOR ANOTHER THREE YEARS.

POLICE CH CHIEF STRAIT HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS ISSUE.

THEY ARE HERE TO PRESENT INFORMATION.

WE HAVE PETE SKULLY, PRINCIPAL OF THOMAS WORTHINGTON TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE SCHOOL DISTRICT.

MR. LINDSEY. >> THANK YOU, MS. STUART, MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. I WILL FAIRLY SHORTLY TURN THIS OVER TO CHIEF STRAIT AND PRINCIPAL SKULLY.

MY INVOLVEMENT IS SORT OF AT THE TAIL END AND THAT IS THE AGREEMENT ITSELF. AND WE HAD REACHED THAT AGREEMENT LAST YEAR WITH THE WORTHINGTON SCHOOLS.

AND IT HAS MS. STEWART INDICATED EXPIRES THE END OF THIS MONTH.

WE WANTED TO BRING THIS FORWARD. WE DID PROVIDE SOME INFORMATION.

I THINK CHIEF STRAIT AND CHIEF SKULLY CAN BEST PRESENT HOW THIS FIRST YEAR HAS PROCEEDED. AS INDICATED IN THE MEMO, STAFF IS SUPPORTIVE OF THE THREE-YEAR REQUEST BY THE WORTHINGTON CITY SCHOOLS. HOWEVER, IF COUNCIL CHOOSES TO GO FOR A SHORTER OR LONGER EXTENSION, WE WOULD SIMPLY MODIFY THE RESOLUTION TO REFLECT THAT TONIGHT.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY UESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ON THE LEGAL SIDE.

OTHERWISE I WILL TURN IT OVER TO CHIEF STRAIT TO BRIEFLY OVERVIEW HIS DEPARTMENT'S ROLE IN THIS. AND OFFICER'S INVOLVEMENT.

AND ASK PRINCIPAL SKULLY FOR HIS COMMENTS.

>> THANK YOU DIRECTOR LINDSEY. MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, OVERALL WE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL YEAR WITH THE, SRO.

I KNOW THERE WAS CONCERNED ABOUT INCREASE ARREST.

WE DID NOT SEE AN INCREASE OTHER THAN OUR ROUTINE ARRESTS, WHICH A LOT OF IT IS TIED TO A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY WHEN COMES TO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL ON SCHOOL PROPERTY.

WE HAD A COUPLE OF SERIOUS SERIS INCIDENTS WHERE INDIVIDUALS WERE CHARGES. IN 2018 WE HAD ONE INDIVIDUAL BECAUSE HE BROUGHT A WEAPON TO THE SCHOOL.

OF COURSE THAT INDIVIDUAL WAS TRANSPORTED.

OTHER THAN THAT, WE DID NOT HAVE ANY CONCERNS.

ACTUALLY, QUITE OPPOSITE. HAVING A FULL-TIME SRO AT THE SCHOOL SEEMS TO BE FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD AND WE MONITORED CLOSELY WITH COMMAND STAFF, A RATHER SUCCESSFUL I THINK HAVING HIM THERE AND INTEGRATED A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER WITH THE KIDS HAS HAD A POSITIVE AFFECT AND THE FACT THAT MAYBE MYTHS WE MIGHT SEE ON TELEVISION HAVE BEEN DISPELLED.

AND ALSO, BECAUSE OF THE INTERACTIONS AND TRUST THAT HAS BEEN BUILT BY SOME OF THE STUDENTS WE GET MORE INFORMATION THAT OTHERWISE MIGHT NOT HAVE COME TO US.

WE MIGHT HAVE FOUND OUT AFTER THE FACTS.

OVERALL, I THINK IT'S BEEN SUCCESSFUL.

I HOPE TO HAVE OFFICER SHAWN, OUR CURRENT SRO HERE THIS EVENING. HE FELT IS AND IS CURRENTLY IN THE HOSPITAL. HE'S DONE A GREAT JOB.

AS I LIKE TO POINT OUT, I THINK HE'S SHOCKED HIMSELF A LITTLE BIT BY THE FACT HE'S DONE SOME THINGS THAT ARE OUTSIDE HIS NORM. ONE AS A DANCE DURING A LARGE ASSEMBLY. HE FELT VERY UNCOMFORTABLE BUT THE KIDS LOVED IT. I'LL GIVE HIM KUDOS FOR BREAKING OUTSIDE OF THE NORM. I'M TURN IT OVER TO PRINCIPAL SKULLY. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OF HIM OR ME, I WOULD BE GLAD TO ANSWER THEM.

ICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I APPRECIATE YOU INVITING ME. OFFICER IS MUCH BRAVER THAN I.

I WOULD NEVER DANCE IN FRONT OF STUDENTS.

[00:30:02]

I'LL GIVE A BRIEF SYNOPSIS. LAST YEAR WE HAD A HANDFUL OF CONCERNS. MOST OF THEM AROUND WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE TO INTEGRATE AN OFFICER AND THE IMPACT ON KIDS AND CHARGES. BASED ON THE DATA WE HAVE ON CHARGES, I THINK IT LOOKS NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN YEARS PAST.

BASED ON OUR INTERNAL DATA WE TAKE FOR SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING, WHAT I CAN SAY WITH CONFIDENCE ADDING THE OFFICER HAS IMPROVED SLIGHTLY OVER THE LAST PREVIOUS SCHOOL YEAR.

I DON'T THINK IT'S HAD A NEGATIVE IMPACT.

I CAN SAY THAT PRETTY CONFIDENTLY.

IN TERMS OF JUST ANECDOTAL INFORMATION, HAVING THE RIGHT PERSON IN THE SCHOOL IS REALLY IMPORTANT.

OFFICER ORD, AS CHIEF GAVE THE EXAMPLE OF IM DANCING IN FRONT OF KIDS, HE WORKS REALLY WELL WITH KIDS.

HAS A FOCUS ON RELATIONSHIPS. IT'S MEANT WHEN THINGS ARE HANDLED THAT CAN BE CRIMINAL, THEY ARE HANDLED CONSISTENTLY.

HAVING THE SAME PERSON AT THE SCHOOL MEANS THERE ARE ACCOUNTABILITY. IF YOU HAVE A BAD INTERACTION WITH A KID, IT'S NOT ONE AND DONE.

YOU SEE THE KID THE NEXT DAY. SAME IS TRUE WITH A FAMILY OR RESIDENT. THERE IS KIND OF INCUMBENT UPON THEM, THE ABILITY TO HAVE STRONG RELATIONSHIPS AND HAVE THAT RELATIONSHIP BE THE FOCUS. WORTHINGTON SCHOOLS, WE'RE REALLY APPRECIATIVE OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER. AND CERTAINLY INTERESTED IN IT

CONTINUING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTI?

>> THIS IGHT BE FOR BOTH OF YOU.

THE REPORTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, A HANDFUL FOLLOWED NUMBERS WITH INCIDENTS. I WAS CURIOUS IF THERE IS ANYTHING HISTORICALLY TO COMPARE THAT TO.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE AN ANSWER NOW.

BUT I WOULD BE CURIOUS TO SEE PREVIOUS VERSUS THIS YEAR AND

MOVING FORWARD IN THE NEXT YEAR. >> ARE YOU ASKING CRIMINAL

INCIDENTS OR SCHOOL DISCIPLINE? >> ANYTHING THE SRO WAS INVOLVED

IN. >> WE HAVE HISTORICAL DATA.

I CAN PROVIDE THAT. THE BAD THINK ABOUT MY DATA DOES RETURNLY BECAUSE OF THE AGE OF THE SYSTEM IS IT'S ANY DATA THAT'S TIDE TO THE ADDRESS. IT DOESN'T SPECIFICALLY BREAK OUT THE FACT IT WAS DURING SCHOOL HOURS.

UNFORTUNATELY, IT'S NOT PERFECT DATA, COUNCILMEMBER SMITH.

THAT IS FRUSTRATING TO US. WE'RE KEEPING PRIVATE INFORMATION AND I DO HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON DAILY WHAT TYPE OF ACTIVITIES ARE TAKING PLACE BESIDES CRIMINAL CHARGES. IF -- THE SRO IS NOT THERE, WE'RE BACK FILLING. WE'RE REQUIRED TO BACKFILL WITH A SUBSTITUTE SRO. IN BETWEEN THAT SRO IS UNAVAILABLE WE SEND OFFICERS NO MATTER WHAT.

IT'S NOT ALWAYS TIED DIRECTLY TO THE SRO.

ANY DATA BEFORE, WHILE WE HAD A PART-TIME SRO, IT COULD BE ANYONE BEING SENT TO THAT ADDRESS.

IT COULD BE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE, IT'S FRUSTRATING.

>> D. SMITH: A FOLLOW-UP FROM OTHER SCHOOL DISTRICTS OR HIGH SCHOOL, IT'S UST INTERESTING TO ME.

I'M JUST CURIOUS. >> YOU PROBABLY HAVE BETTER

CONTACTS THERE. >> I DO.

>> WE CAN REACH OUT. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL.

I MR. SKULLY, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR STEWARDING.

I HAD FIRST HAND EXPOSURE TO THINGS THAT WENT ON.

I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO DID.

MY REQUEST IS YOU CONSIDER IN YOUR SURVEY ADDING AN SRO-SPECIFIC QUESTION OR TWO, MAYBE AN OPEN-ENDED ONE.

THAT MIND BE MEANINGFUL 2 TO ME. OTHER THAN THAT, THANK YOU VERY

MUCH. >> WE TALKED ABOUT THAT BEHIND THE SCENES. I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT WHATEVER WE DO AT ONE HIGH SCHOOL, WE DO AT THE OTHER. IF COUNCIL IS INTERESTED, I'M SURE WE CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO FOLLOW-UP WITH THAT.

IN REVIEWING THE CONTRACT I NOTICED IT REQUIRES AN ANNUAL EVALUATION OF THE POSITION FOR RELEVANCY AND EFFECTIVENESS.

I APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE SHARED ON HOW WELL THE OFFICER INTEGRATED INTO THE SCHOOL AND HAS BUILT A REPORT WITH THE KITS AND THE KIDS FEEL COMFORTABLE. I WOULD APPRECIATE HAVING THAT

[00:35:05]

DETERMINATION TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE SRO IS ACCOMPLISHING THE GOALS ND INTENT OF HAVING A ARMED OFFICER FULL-TIME.

WE HAVE BEEN PROVIDED STATISTICS.

AND I UNDERSTAND THE COMPLEXITY AND CHALLENGES OF PULLING RELEVANT STATISTICS. IN TERMS OF LOOKING AT A THREE-YEAR RENEWAL, THAT CONCERNS ME THAT WE DON'T HAVE A REVIEW OF THE POSITION. I WOULD REQUEST WE CONSIDER NOT DOING A THREE-YEAR RENEWAL. BUT LOOKING AT AN ANNUAL REVIEW WITH THE EXPECTATION OF MORE THOROUGH REVIEW OF THE POSITION.

AND WHETHER HAT'S ACCOMPLISHING WHAT WE WANT IT TO DO.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE SCHOOL BOARD CONSIDERED THIS FROM THOUGHT PERSPECTIVE OR NOT YET. BUT I HAVE ONE SON IN HIGH SCHOOL RIGHT NOW AT THOMAS. AND ANOTHER ONE THAT WILL BE THERE IN TWO YEARS. I HAVE GREAT INTEREST IN THIS

POLICY AND PROJECT. >> I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO MS. KOWALCZYK'S CONCERNS. I APPRECIATION THE ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE. I HAVE A SON IN HIGH SCHOOL.

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF CHALLENGES AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.

IT SEEMS LIKE WE'VE BROKEN THROUGH WITH CREATING GREAT RELATIONSHIPS. I'M CONCERNED ABOUT HAVING DATA.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE NOT DISPROPORTIONTLY EFFECTING OUR MINORITIES. THAT WAS A KEY FACTOR GOING IN.

I DON'T KNOW HOW THE SCHOOL BOARD FEELS ABOUT THIS.

I THINK THAT ANECDOTALLY WE HAVE HAD A LOT OF POSITIVE INTERACTION. AND THIS COULD BE A GOOD THING FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL. BUT I WOULD LIKE TO BEGIN WITH A LITTLE MORE THOROUGH INVESTIGATION OF ALL THE STATISTICS AND MAKING SURE WE HAVE GOOD METRICS MOVING FORWARD. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE NOT A THREE-YEAR CONTINUANCE BUT AN ANNUAL REVIEW FOR THE FIRST THROUGH YEARS BEFORE THEN WE CAN THEN BE SATISFACTORY PROVING WE'RE HAPPY WITH THIS RO POSITION.

>> OBVIOUSLY, THAT'S WITHIN COUNCIL'S PURVIEW.

WE CERTAINLY DO EVALUATE THE OFFICER ANNUALLY WITH OFFICER HOLTON. HIS DIRECT SUPERVISOR.

IF WE HAD A DIRECTIVE ON DOING SOMETHING ADDITIONAL FROM

COUNCIL -- >> ON OUR SIDE, OFFICER WARD BECAUSE IT'S A NEW POSITION, MEETS WITH THE LIEUTENANT ON A MONTHLY BASIS. IT'S NOT JUST HE HAS AN ANNUAL REVIEW PER THE POLICIES WITH THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON FOR ALL EMPLOYEES. BECAUSE THIS WAS A NEW POSITION IT WAS DIRECTLY INSTRUCTED BY ME TO MEET WITH HIM ON A REGULAR BASIS AND CLEAR ON WHAT COUNCIL'S INTENT AND THE SCHOOL BOARD'S CONCERNS LAST YEAR. THIS IS AN ONGOING PROCESS.

MY GUESS IS HE MEETS QUITE FREQUENTLY, MORE THAN MONTHLY.

A FORMAL SIT DOWN MONTHLY WITH THE LIEUTENANT, IT'S LIEUTENANT HOLTON. THIS IS AN ONGOING PROCESS.

PROBABLY MORE INTENSIVE THAN ANYONE ELSE ON THE DIVISION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'M ASKING TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO WORK WITH THIS. WHAT ADDITIONAL EVALUATION MATERIALS OR TOOLS ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

WHAT IS MISSING? >> FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, IT'S MINDING THE POINT OF THE SRO WAS ALSO TO ENSURE THAT WE WERE KEEPING KIDS SAFE. THERE WERE DISCUSSIONS ABOUT SECURITY IMPROVEMENTS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

IT WOULD BE MORE OF AN EVALUATION OF THE POSITION AND NEED FOR THE POSITION GOING FORWARD.

I APPRECIATE THE PERSONNEL REVIEW AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THE EXACT RIGHT PERSON IN THAT POSITION.

BUT LOOKING AT THE POSITION IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT.

WHAT ARE ARE OUR GOALS IN HAVING THIS PERSON THERE FULL-TIME.

IS THIS POSITION MEETING THOSE >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. MEY

ERS. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: DO YOU WANT THIS PERSON BACK NEXT YEAR?

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WHY?

>> WHAT I ATTEMPTED TO ARTICULATE EARLIER WAS WHEN YOU HAVE 1800 KIDS AND THE POLICE ARE COMING TO SK YOU A CAN QUESTION OR A CONCERN, WE'LL BRING THE POLICE IN AND IT'S A RANDOM PERSON IN A UNIFORM. A LOT OF KIDS DON'T WANT TO TALK TO AN OFFICER THEY DON'T KNOW. THERE IS A COUPLE OF THINGS HAVING AN SRO, THE INSTANT RELATIONSHIP THAT IS BUILT.

[00:40:05]

IT'S THE SAME PERSON. THERE IS A COMFORT ASSOCIATED WITH HAVING THE OFFICER. HAVING A POLICE OFFICER ON SCHOOL IS DIFFERENT THAN ANOTHER ADMINISTRATOR, TEACHER OR RANDOM PERSON. THEIR LOOK AT THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY AND EVALUATE THINGS THAT WEAK FOR US.

OFFER ADVICE WITH VISITOR CHECK IN AND RANDOM THINGS.

WE'VE TRANSITIONED FROM THE CULTURE ISSUE AND BEING CONCERNED ABOUT IS THIS GOING TO HAVE A BIG IMPACT ON THE CULTURE AND HOW KIDS ARE TREATED. WHAT KIND OF THINGS CAN WE ADJUST FOR NEXT YEAR TO MAKE IT WORK MORE SMOOTHLY.

OUR HOPE AND EXPECTATION IS THAT WE HAVE A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER. I PREFER WE PARTNER WITH WORTHINGTON FOR THAT. OBVIOUSLY, IF IT DOESN'T MEET THE GOALS OF CITY COUNCIL OF THE EXPECTATIONS OF CITY COUNCIL, MAYBE THAT'S NOT HE RIGHT PATH FOR CITY COUNCIL.

AS A SCHOOL DISTRICT WE BELIEVE IN SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICERS.

WE WANT A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER AND WE PREFER IT BE WITH WORTHINGTON. BECAUSE WE HAVE GREAT RELATIONSHIPS AND KNOW WHO TO CALL.

CONCERNS ABOUT DISPROPORTIONALITY ARE REAL.

WE EVALUATE THOSE IN THE SUSPENSION AND EXPULSION PAPERWORK. WE SHOULD LOOK AT THE IN THE CRIMINAL PAPERWORK AS WELL. WHEN YOU ARE PROCESSING A CHARGE DIRECTED BY THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, THAT THEY ARE CONCRETE AND SPECIFIC REASONS WHY, AND OBJECTIVE REASONS.

MOST OF THE CHARGES IN HIGH SCHOOL ARE RELATED TO MARIJUANA OR ALCOHOL POSSESSION. FELONIOUS ASSAULT, WE HAVEN'T HAD ONE THIS EAR. IF YOU COMMITMENT FELONIOUS ASSAULT, WE'RE GOING TO FILE A CHARGE.

I'M NOT SURE HOW TO EVALUATE THAT.

AND HOW TO EVALUATE THE RELEVANCE OF SHAWN WARD OR A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER EFFECTIVELY.

BUT I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR US TO BE ABLE TO COLLABORATE AND LOOK AT THE DATA. AND DETERMINE WHAT MAKES SENSE FOR US. I THINK NOT HAVING A SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER WOULD BE A MISTAKE FOR US.

I THINK SHAWN WARD HAS BEEN AWESOME.

WE WERE HAPPY WE DID NOT GO FOR SERGEANTS.

IF YOU ARE ASKING ME WHAT OUR OPINION IS, WE'RE HAPPY AND EXCITED TO HAVE HIM BACK. I THINK HE IS A WELCOME FACE TO OUR FAMILY AND KIDS. IT'S CERTAINLY NOT PERFECT, NO EMPLOYEE IS. THERE IS ALWAYS SMALL ISSUES

HERE AND THERE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: CONTIN-

>> I'M NOT AWARE OF DISCUSSIONS SCHOOL WORKERS HAD RECENTLY.

I THOUGHT IT CAME UP AS PART OF APPROPRIATIONS LAST WEEK OR TWO

WEEKS AGO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WAS WONDERING IF THEY WERE LOOKING AT ONE OR THREE YEAR.

>> R. DOROTHY: I'M FOR CONTINUALLY LOOKING AT THIS FOR NEXT YEAR. I WAS DEFINITELY CONCERNED ABOUT EXTENDING FOR THREE YEARS AS OPPOSED TO REVIEWING ANNUALLY.

>> I CAN SPEAK TO OUR OPINION ON THAT.

I MEAN, WHY, I SHOULD SAY. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: ONE QUESTION FOR CHIEF STRAIT. I'VE BEEN OVER AN AWFUL LOT OF CALL CENTER AND DAILY LOGS AND IN THE LAST SIX OR EIGHT MONTHS.

AND I KNOW THAT OUR OFFICERS IN THE FIELD WE PRETTY MUCH KNOW WHERE THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING JUST ABOUT EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY. YOU KNOW, THEY ARE TALKING TO DISPATCH OR ON THE PHONE TO SOMEBODY AND THEY LOG THAT.

I'M ASSUMING OUR RESOURCE OFFICER DOES NOT COMPLETE A

DAILY LOG. >> HE ACTUALLY DOES A DAILY AND MOVES TO A WEEKLY. I USUALLY GET THE MONTHLY.

I HAVE THAT INFORMATION ACTUALLY COUNCILMEMBER --

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THE DAILY, MONTHLY LOG.

THE MONTHLY MEETINGS WITH HIS SUPERVISOR.

>> SUPERVISOR, AND ACTUALLY THEY HAVE STAFF MEETINGS AS WELL HE

ATTENDS. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WE HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION. IT SOUNDS TO BE THE KIND OF INFORMATION THAT SOME OR COUNCILMEMBERS WOULD LIKE TO SEE. CAN WE MEMORIALIZE THAT INTO A

REPORT? >> I HAVE THAT DONE.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THAT WOULD PROBABLY SATISFY.

>> I'LL HAVE TO GIVE IT ON A THUMB DRIVE.

IT'S BIG. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: CAN WOO OO SYNTHESIZE THAT TO THE COUNCILMEMBER.

>> IT GOES THROUGH THE DAILY AND MONTHLY WITH THE STATS.

WHICH THEN TRANSPORT EVEN FURTHER INTO THE NUMBERS I HAVE.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I THINK THOSE KIND OF REPORTS WOULD HELP US A GREAT DEAL IF YOU COULD FIND A WAY TO MEMORIALIZE THAT

[00:45:04]

IN A FORM USEFUL TO US. AS TO THE CONTRACT ITSELF, ESPECIALLY IF WE COULD GET THAT KIND OF REPORT ON SAY A THREE OR SIX-MONTH ROWING BASIS. SIX MONTH PROBABLY WOULD BE PREFERABLE FOR ME. WHY NOT HAVE A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT THAT IS AUTOMATICALLY ENEWABLE ABSENT TERMINATION IF WE DO IT ON A SIX-MONTH REPORT, SIX-MONTH NOTICE.

AND THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF THE CONTRACT WOULD BE THREE YEARS.

FOLLOW ME? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YEAH, BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT'S DIFFERENT --

>> MUCH DIFFERENT THAN WHAT THE PROPOSAL IS BECAUSE THERE IS A SIX-MONTH CANCELLATION ALREADY PROVIDED FOR IN THE CONTRACT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THE CONTRACT WOULD TERMINATE ON ITS OWN TERMS TO THE END OF THE YEAR.

ALL I'M SUGGESTING IS THAT THE CONTRACT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS.

THE REASON WHY IS BECAUSE ONE OF THE ISSUES THAT WE HAD GOING INTO THIS WAS THAT FOR EXAMPLE, IF WE DON'T HAVE -- THERE NEEDS TO BE CERTAINTY FOR THE DISTRICT SO THEY KNOW WHO TO STAFF WITH.

THEY NEED TIME TO MARKET TO FIND SOMEONE IF WE CAN'T SUPPLY IT.

I THINK THEY WERE THE ONCE WHO ASKED FOR THE SIX-MONTH TERMINATION AND CHIEF STRAIT OR HIS PREDECESSOR, NEEDS TIME -- I WOULD THINK IF WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NEW RESOURCE OFFICER IN THAT PLACE, IT WOULD COME FOR US FOR DISCUSSION IF WE'RE GOING TO

PREPLACE THAT PERSON. >> ALSO MANDATORY RAINING, A MANDATORY 40 HOUR. OUR FULL-TIMER AND PART-TIMER HAS 40-HOUR TRAINING. THERE ARE ADDITIONAL TRAININGS REQUIRED PLUS PERSONALLY WE REQUIRE THE SIT TRINING, THE

CRISIS INTERVENTION TRAINING. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: MIC] -- IT'S NOT THAT UNUSUAL TO HAVE --

>> CAN YOU REPEAT THAT? >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: MY PROPOSAL IS THAT WE HAVE A CONTRACT WOULD BE A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT THAT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS AT THE END OF YEAR YEAR ABSENT SIX-MONTH TERMINATION PRIOR TO RENEWAL. OR WE COULD EVEN MAKE IT A ROWING SIX MONTHS. THE MAXIMUM TERM OF THE CONTRACT WOULD BE THREE YEARS. AT THE END OF THREE YEARS WE ENTER INTO A NEW CONTRACT. ONE-YEAR INCREMENTS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THAT A MOTION TO AMEND?

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: LET ME TALK ABOUT IT FIRST.

I WANT TO KNOW IF IT'S A DOABLE PROPOSITION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. THOUGHTS ON HERE?

YES, MR. FOUST. >> D. FOUST: SKULLY, THANK YOU, MY TWO GROWN CHILDREN THAT WENT THROUGH THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.

I APPRECIATE ALL HAT THE SCHOOL DOES.

I HOPE WE ARE OMEWHAT UNIFIED IN OUR MESSAGE.

I FEAR WE'RE NOT. AND I'M A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED BUT NOT SURPRISED ABOUT THE CONVERSATION WE'RE HAVING.

BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE MAY BE WAIVERRERING SUPPORT FOR THE SRO. A YEAR AGO WE CONCLUDED WORTHINGTON WAS A BIT OF AN OUTLIER IN NOT HAVING A SRO.

PEER GROUPS HAD ONE. SOME HAD SEVERAL.

THERE ARE A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD THAT I DON'T QUESTION FOR A MINUTE, AND CHIEF STRAIT IS ONE.

IT WAS UNDER HIS RECOMMENDATION THAT THIS IS A GOOD IDEA.

ONE YEAR, THREE YEARS, SIX MONTHS, SIX EARS, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TIMING. I'M NOT SURE, I THINK WE MAY BE GETTING LOST AND TIMING AND WHAT THE REAL ISSUE IS.

I HOPE THERE S UNIFIED SUPPORT FROM COUNCIL THAT THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SERVICE WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE.

>> I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND. IT'S NOT SO MUCH A QUESTION OF WHETHER THERE IS AN SRO. BUT IT IS A CONCERN ABOUT THE STRONG FEELINGS PEOPLE HAVE ABOUT IT.

AND THE FACT IT'S AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT NEW POSITION THAT WE SHOULD TAKE SERIOUSLY. AND WE SHOULD EXPECT THAT WE GET A FORMAL EVALUATION AND REPORT BACK.

AND I HAVEN'T SEEN THAT. AND I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE EXTENDING AN AGREEMENT THREE YEARS UNTIL I SAID THAT INFORMATION IS BEING PROVIDED. I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU BOTH PROVIDED, A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF INFORMATION.

IT HASN'T REALLY BEEN DISTILLED INTO WHAT I CAN UNDERSTAND AS A STRONG RECOMMENDATION THIS IS THE RIGHT DECISION.

ASIDE FROM THE PEOPLE INVOLVED. AND THAT'S AN INCREDIBLY

[00:50:02]

IMPORTANT PART OF THIS POSITION IS TO AVING THE RIGHT PEOPLE INVOLVED. I APPRECIATE THAT.

THE THER CONCERN IS THAT CHIEF STRAIT IS RETIRING AND WE'LL HAVE A NEW CHIEF FOR NEXT YEAR. HAVING ALREADY IN PLACE A THREE-YEAR CONTRACT WHEN WE HAVEN'T HAD THE DISCUSSION AND OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW NEXT YEAR, WHEN THINGS COULD CHANGE,

CONCERNS ME. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHAT ABOUT MR. MEYERS' IDEA OF THE ROLLING --

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I'M NOT PROPOSING A THREE-YEAR CONTRACT, I'M PROPOSING A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT AND WE HAVE TO GIVE SIX MONTHS NOTICE TO TERMINATE IT. I'M SUGGESTING WE CONTINUE THAT ONE-YEAR CONTRACT AND SIX-MONTHS NOTICE TO TERMINATE WITH THE UNDERSTANDING WE'LL BE SUPPLIED WITH A MANAGEABLE REPORT IN SIX MONTHS FROM THE DAY WE ACTUALLY FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS, FROM THE DAY WE SIGN THE CONTRACT SO WE CAN TERMINATE.

IF WE CHOOSE NOT TO, THE CONTRACT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS FOR ANOTHER YEAR AND WE DO IT AGAIN THE NEXT YEAR.

IT GIVES THE SCHOOL ISTRICT CERTAINTY IF THEY ARE REPORTING THE DATA AND THINGS ARE GOING WELL, THEY CAN HAVE CERTAINTY THIS WILL BE IN PLACE FOR THREE YEARS AND IVES US THE ABILITY TO STOP IT AT ONE, TWO OR THREE YEARS.

IT'S SORT OF A COMPROMISE AND THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

I MOVE WE ENTER INTO A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT TERMINATABLE ON SIX-MONTHS NOTICE THAT FIVE AND A HALF MONTHS FROM ENTERING INTO THE CONTRACT WE'RE PROVIDED WITH A REPORT SUMMARY DATA USABLE BY THE COUNCIL TO EVALUATE THE CONTINUATION OF THE PROGRAM.

AND THAT AT THE END OF THE YEAR TERM, ABSENT TERMINATION THAT CONTRACT AUTOMATICALLY RENEWS FOR A TOTAL PERIOD OF THREE

YEARS. >> SECOND.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? IF OT, THE AMENDMENT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

ALL OPPOSED? NOW TO THE MAIN RESOLUTION.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY S AYING AYE.

OPPOSED? OKAY.

WE NOW HAVE A DIRECTION THAT WE'RE HEADED.

I THINK EVERYONE APPRECIATES THE SRO AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

THE ITY AND THE SCHOOLS. >> APPRECIATE IT.

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

[7.B. Resolution No. 42-2019 Amendment to Development Plan - 181 E. Wilson Bridge Road]

MOVING ON. RESOLUTION NO. 42-2019 AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN - 181 E. WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AUTHORIZING AN AMENDMENT TO THE FINAL PLAN TO THE WILSON BRIDGE CORRIDOR FOR 181 EAST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND AUTHORIZING VARIANCES (ADVANCED CIVIL DESIGN/GRANBY PLACE LLC).

INTRODUCED BY MS. DOROTHY MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MS. KOWALCZYK, SECONDED BY R. ROBINSON. I KEEP ON CALLING YOU --

>> I'M GOING TO TURN THIS OVER TO MR. BROWN FOR THE

PRESENTATION. >> MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AS YOU KNOW WITH ANY DEVIATION FROM A FINAL PLAN IT REQUIRED TO GO BACK TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION AND ONTO CITY COUNCIL WHEN A VARIANCE IS INVOLVED. IN OCTOBER OF 2018, CITY COUNCIL DID APPROVE A FINAL PLAN FOR GRANBY PLACE.

A 32-UNIT APARTMENT BUILDING ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF EAST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD. AT THAT TIME, WHAT WENT BEFORE THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION, SHOWED THE SETBACK AT 21.5 FEET FROM THE PROPERTY LINE IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION ON MAY 20TH, THE BUILDING WAS NOT PLACED WHERE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE. THE TAKES WERE IN THE WRONG LOCATION. CITY STAFF, MUNICIPAL PLANNING PLANNING COMMISSIONDID AMENDMEN. WITH THE VARIANCE REQUESTED FOR THE SITE SET BACK, IT NEEDED TO COME BACK TO CITY COUNCIL FOR REVIEW. WHAT WAS ORIGINALLY APPROVED BY THIS BOARD WAS 25.1 FEET FROM THE PROPERTY LINE OVER THE FRONT BUILDING LINE WAS CONSTRUCTED AT 21.5 FEET.

THERE WAS A FIRE SUPPRESSION SHED ON THE SIDE OF THE FRONT BUILDING TO 2 3.8 FEET FOR THE MAIN PORTION OF THE BUILDING FROM THAT EASTERN PROPERTY LINE. AGAIN, IT'S ABOUT A FOOT AND A HALF TO THREE AND A HALF FEET OFF OF WHAT YOU ORIGINALLY SAW.

AGAIN, ALSO WHEN WE DID THIS AS PART OF YOUR APPROVAL FOR THE FINAL PLAN YOU SAW A FRONT SET BACK OF SEVEN FEET.

THE CODE ALLOWS THE FRONT SET BACK TO GO TO FIVE.

THE FIVE FEET IS WHAT IS FOR THE FRONT BUILDING, ONCE THE

[00:55:02]

RIGHT-OF-WAY WAS DEDICATED. THAT IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH CODE.

WE'RE OKAY WITH THAT. IT IS THE SIDE SET BACKS.

IT WAS A VARIANCE GRANTED BY COUNCIL.

SOUTHERN, WHEN WE DEVELOP 24 WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR ZONING, IT ORIGINALLY ANTICIPATED THE WHOLE CORRIDOR BE REZONED. SINCE WE JUST REZONED THESE TWO PORTIONS OF THE PARCEL OR THESE TWO PARCELS ON THIS PORTION OF WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, THERE WAS A CLAUSE BUILT IN THAT REQUIRED ADDITIONAL BUFFERING, SET BACKS AND SCREENING THAT BUTTED UP TO RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY. ANTICIPATED FOR THE PROPERTIES ON NORTH HIGH DRIVE TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL BUFFER FOR THEM.

SINCE THIS INVOLVED THE TWO PROPERTIES TO THE EAST AND WEST, STILL ZONED RESIDENTIAL IT NEEDED TO COME TO THIS BODY FOR A VARIANCE TO DEVIATE FROM THAT REQUIREMENT.

AGAIN, AS YOU MIGHT RECALL, ORIGINALLY WE HAD FOUR VARIANCES PART OF THE ORIGINAL REQUEST. ONE FOR THE DRIVEWAY TO EXCEED THE 45 FEET IN WIDTH. I'M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT WE DID NOT NEED TO UTILIZE THAT VARIANCE.

THEY WERE ABLE TO MODIFY THE PLANS AND MEET CODE REQUIREMENT.

YOU DID GRANT A VARIANCE FOR THAT SIDE SET BACK TO BE REDUCED FROM THE 50-FOOT REQUIREMENT. AND THE TREE REPLACEMENT FEE YOU GRANTED THE VARIANCE FOR. AND DENSITY INCREASE WHAT IS PERMITTED BY CODE. WHAT IS EFORE YOU IS THE REQUEST TO GO FROM 25.1 TO THE 21.5 AND 23.8 FEET RESPECTIVELY.

AGAIN, IT DID GO TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION ON JUNE 13TH. THEY RECOMMENDED APPROVAL ONTO CITY COUNCIL. AGAIN, ONCE IT WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION, THE APPLICANTS DID CEASE TO DO A LOT OF THE WORK ON THE FRONT BUILDING. AND WORKED WITH ME TO GET AN APPLICATION BEFORE THE BOARD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE COULD GET IT ONTO CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL.

THIS IS THE CLOSE-UP SLIDE. SHOWING WITH THE FRONT NORTHEAST CORNER, ORIGINALLY PROPOSED TO BE 21.5 FEET IS A 23.8.

AND THEN YOU SEE HERE FOR THE FIRE SUPPRESSION, IT BRINGS IT A BUMP FROM THE 25.1 FEET TO THE 21.5 FEET.

AGAIN, STAFF DID RECOMMEND APPROVAL TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION AS RECOMMENDED TONIGHT, AGAIN, IT MEETS THE OVERALL INTENT OF THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD ORRIDOR.

IF WE REZONED THE ENTIRE CORRIDOR, WE WOULDN'T BE HERE.

WE FELT IT NEEDED TO COME TO YOU SINCE IT REQUIRED VARIANCE FROM YOU. THE APPLICANTS ARE IN THE ROOM.

AND I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

>> THE FRONT SET BACK IS AS SPECIFIED.

THIS IS A SIDE SET BACK IS ALL WE'RE TALKING ABOUT?

>> THE PLANS THAT PLANNING COMMISSION SAW AND CAME BEFORE YOU SHOW THE FRONT SET BACK AT SEVEN FEET FROM THE 15 FEET OF RIGHT-OF-WAY WE HAD DEDICATED. THE ZONING TEXT ALLOWS FOR THE FRONT SET BACK TO BE WITHIN FIVE FEET OF HAT FRONT PROPERTY LINE-UP TO 20. WITH THE FRONT SET BACK, THEY ARE OKAY IT'S SHIFTED TWO FEET. THE SIDE SET BACK COMES INTO PLAY WHERE CODE REQUIRES 50, YOU GRANTED 25.1.

ANY DEVIATION FROM THAT SINCE IT WAS A VARIANCE APPROVED BY YOU,

FOR APPROVAL.TO COME BACK TO YO- >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: SHIFTED THREE AND A HALF FEET TO THE EAST.

WHICH IS THREE AND A HALF FEET FURTHER AWAY FROM THE NEW

RESIDENCE TO THE WEST, CORRECT? >> YES.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: OKAY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MMR. SI

TH. >> D. SMITH: FROM THE MOMENT THEY IDENTIFIED A MISTAKE WAS MADE DID THEY CEASE WORKING OR CONTINUE CONSTRUCTION ON THE MISTAKE AREA?

>> WHEN I'VE BEEN OUT THEY WERE CONTINUING TO WORK ON THE BACK BUILDING. THEY STOPPED ON THE FRONT BUILDING. I WASN'T OUT TODAY.

BUT AS OF LAST WEEK WHEN I WAS OUT ON THURSDAY, I DIDN'T SEE ANYONE IN THE FRONT BUILDING. THEY WERE IN THE BACK BUILDING NUMBER 2, TOWARDS THE SOUTH. I WOULD HAVE TO DEFER TO THE APPLICANT IF THEY WERE STILL DOING WORK AT THEIR OWN RISK IF

THEY WERE. >> R. DOROTHY: CAN YOU SHOW THE PICTURE OF WHERE THIS ISSUE WOULD ARISE? OKAY. THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.

>> ORIGINALLY, FROM THIS CORNER TO WHERE YOU AN EE THE TAKES HERE, WAS TO BE 25.1 FEET AND IT'S 23.8.

[01:00:10]

>> I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THE APPLICANTS PLEASE.

MY BASIC QUESTION MORE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE IS HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? IS THIS A SURVEYING FIRM YOU HAVE USED BEFORE? WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT HOW IT HAPPENS? I MEAN, IT SEEMS CENTRAL TO WHAT THEY DO. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

>> ABSOLUTELY, MR. ROBINSON. DAVID HODGE WITH THE LAW FIRM HILL AND HODGE, ATTORNEY FOR THE APPLICANT.

THE APPLICANT IS NOT THE PROPERTY OWNER, IT IS ADVANCED CIVIL DESIGN. THE OWNER IS TOM WARNER.

LET ME SAY A COUPLE OF THINGS. AS MANY OF YOU KNOW I DO A LOT OF THIS WORK ALL OVER GREATER COLUMBUS.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF MY CLIENTS USED ADVANCED CIVIL DESIGN.

THEY ARE ONE OF THE PREMIER CIVIL ENGINEERING FIRMS IN THIS TOWN. UNFORTUNATELY, ALL OF US IN THE ROOM THAT ARE PROFESSIONALS IN OUR VARIOUS FIELDS HAVE THE OCCASION WHEN A MISTAKE HAPPENS. AND I THINK WE ALL HOPE THAT WHEN THESE MISTAKES HAPPEN THOSE OF US THAT ARE IN THE POSITION TO HAVE MERCY, SHOW THAT. THIS IS A MISTAKE.

THIS CAME TO OUR ATTENTION FROM OUR MUTUAL CLIENT.

WE IMMEDIATELY CONTACTED STAFF AND ASKED WHAT DO WE DO? WE FILED THE APPLICATION TO COME THROUGH THE PROCESS.

THAT'S SORT OF MY PORTION. I'LL STAY ON HAND TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. I THINK TOM WOULD LIKE TO SAY A

FEW WORDS. >> GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS TOM WARNER. THE PRESIDENT AND MANAGING PARTNER OF ADVANCED CIVIL DESIGN.

WE HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR ALMOST 17 YEARS.

WE'VE STAKED A LOT OF BUILDINGS IN OUR TIME.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN FRONT OF A BOARD TO SAY WE MADE A MISTAKE.

MY SURVEYORS ARE THOROUGH. WE'VE DONE THINGS IN THE ARENA DISTRICT WHERE IT'S TIGHT QUARTERS.

WE GOT LITTLE OR NO WIGGLE ROOM. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? TO ANSWER, COUNCILMEMBER ROBINSON, I'VE ASKED THAT QUESTION A FEW TIMES. THE PERSON THAT DOWNLOADS THE POINTS, HE SHOWED ME HOW HE DID IT.

I THINK SOMETHING GOT LOST IN TRANSLATION.

HE'S BEEN WITH US FOR 15 YEARS. HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.

TYPICALLY WHAT WE SEE -- WE MADE A MISTAKE.

BUT TYPICALLY WE SHOW A DOTTED LINE FOR A SETBACK.

WE ADDED A DIMENSION. THE SOUTH BUILDING ON HE SITE PLAN, IT'S RIGHT AROUND 15 FEET OFF THE SOUTH PROPERTY LINE.

MY SURVEYOR OES A LOT OF CHECKING.

HE SAW 15 FEET ON THE SOUTH ONE. HE DIDN'T HAVE THE FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT SHOWED THE SETBACK TO THE EAST.

IT GOT MARKED WRONG. IT WAS COMPLETELY ON US.

ALMOST DID ONE OF THESE WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT IT.

IT'S NOT SOMETHING WE'RE USED TO HAVING OCCUR AT OUR SHOP.

WE TAKE IT VERY SERIOUSLY. I WAS H H HERE FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING. THE RESIDENTS TAKE CARE OF HE PROPERTIES. FIVE DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS WAS LANDSCAPE PROPOSALS THAT WERE GRANDIOSE.

I RECOGNIZE PEOPLE CARE ABOUT THEIRS COMMUNITY.

THIS ONE HAD MY SWALLOWING HARD. IT WAS A MISTAKE.

WE OWNED UP TO IT. NOBODY FROM THE CITY HAD TO ELL US THIS IS WRONG. WE RAISED OUR HANDS AND SAID WE MADE A MISTAKE. DAVID MENTIONED, I'VE GOT MY HAT IN HAND. IT'S A TOUGH PLACE TO BE.

WE'RE ASKING FOR SOME FORGIVENESS.

TAKING A STEP BACK IS OUR HARM, THE SIDEWALK IS THE SAME PLACE AS PLANNED. THE BIKE RACKS IN THE SAME PLACE AS PLANNED. THE BUILDING SLIDES A LITTLE BIT. I'M NOT TRYING TO DOWN PLAY IT I'VE NEVER BEEN IN A POSITION LIKE THIS.

IT'S A MISTAKE. I'M HERE TO ADDRESS QUESTIONS

AND HOPEFULLY MOVE ON. >>

>> IT IS. >> THANK YOU FOR EXPLANATION.

I APPRECIATE MISTAKES. WE ALL MAKE THEM.

I APPRECIATE THE EXPLANATION. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. LET'S MOVE ON.

ALL THOSE IN FAVO R, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. -- OF AUTHORIZING THE AMENDMENT TO THE PLAN BY AUTHORIZING THE VARIANCE REQUESTED SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE? OPPOSED.

IT IS PASSED. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

[7.C. Resolution No. 43-2019 Amendment to Development Plan - 535 Lakeview Plaza Boulevard]

[01:05:07]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING ON.

RESOLUTION NO. 43-2019 AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN - 535 LAKEVIEW PLAZA BOULEVARD AUTHORIZING AN AMENDMENT TO THE FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR 535 LAKEVIEW PLAZA BOULEVARD AND AUTHORIZING A VARIANCE FOR PARKING (PLAY:CBUS).

INTRODUCED BY MR. FOUST, MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MR. SMITH.

SECONDED BY MR. MEYERS. MS. STUART.

>> I'LL HAVE MS. BROWN COVER THIS ITEM ALSO.

>> THANK YOU. MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I'LL TRY TO FLIP THROUGH THE SLIDES THIS TIME.

AGAIN, THE REQUEST BEFORE YOU IS AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE A VARIANCE FOR PARKING.

THE APPLICANT IS LOOKING TO TAKEOVER 53,000 SQUARE FEET OF THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE FORMER ROADRUNNER SPACE WHERE SUPER GAMES IS LOCATED AND ROADRUNNER RETAIL HAS A SMALL RETAIL OFFICE NOW. LAKE VIEW PLAZA WAS DEVELOPED IN THE MID-80S. SEVERAL ADDITIONS ON AS YOU KNOW, IN 2018 ROADRUNNER LEFT AND THE SITE HAS BEEN MARKETED.

WE WERE CONTACTED BY PLACE C BUS.

A PLAY CLEVELAND IN OHIO, THEY WOULD LIKE TO UTILIZE 53,000 SQUARE FEET OF THE SPACE FOR INDOOR ADVENTURE PARK WITH AN ASSOCIATED RESTAURANT. LOOKING AT THE SLIDE BEFORE YOU, I270, WOULD BE THE RIGHT SIDE, THE RAILROAD TRACKS TO THE SOUTH SIDE. AGAIN, THIS IS SNAPSHOTS FROM THEIR CLEVELAND FACILITY. IT GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF THE INTERNAL SPACE LAYOUT. AGAIN, WHEN THIS ID GO TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION, IT WENT FOR AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT DID INCLUDE THE VARIANCE AND WENT THROUGH AS A CONDITIONAL USE. AS PART OF THE CONDITIONAL USE, THE BOARD LOOKS AT HOURS OF OPPOSITION, NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES, PARKING REQUIREMENTS, SIGNAGE, LANDSCAPING, AND ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED AT WHEN LOOKING AT THE HOURS OF OPERATION, WE NOTICED THERE WAS A PINCH POINT ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH THEIR PROPOSED NEED FOR PARKING AND SUPER GAMES.

AND THEIR APPROVED CONDITIONAL USE WAS KIND OF THE PINCH POINT FOR THE SITE ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.

ONE OF THINGS WE LOOKED AT WAS THE CURRENT PARKING ON THE SITE IS 111 PARKING SPACES. GARY MOORE WITH SUPER AMES HAS A CONDITIONAL USE FROM 2003 FOR 86 OF THOSE PARKING SPACES.

AND A STAFF AMENDED ONE FOR AN ADDITIONAL 18 SPACES.

WITH THIS WHERE THE LOADING DOCKS, YOU WILL SEE ADDITIONAL SPACES TO INCREASE THE PARKING UP TO 174.

AGAIN, ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED AT WAS HERE'S WHAT SUPER GAMES WAS APPROVED FOR WITH THEIR PARKING.

HERE'S WHAT THEY ACTUALLY USE. AND THEN THE NUMBER OF PARKING SPACES THAT PLAY C BUS WOULD NO. IF YOU STRICTLY LOOK AT THE LETTER OF THE LAW FOR CODE, SUPER GAMES WOULD BE REQUIRED TO HAVE 169 SPACES, THE ROADRUNNER WOULD BE 53 SPACES.

AND FOR THE PLAY C BUS PORTION, OVER 348 SPACES.

WE LOOKED AT THE LITERAL INTERPRETATION OF THE CODE.

LET'S LOOK AT OTHER USES AROUND COLUMBUS AND THE REGION AND WORKING WITH THE APPLICANT OF WHAT DO YOU SEE AS YOUR NEED FOR PARKING. AGAIN, IT'S KIND OF A TIGHT SITE WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT ON A MAP, YOU THINK IT HAS A LOT OF PROPERTY. HOWEVER, PROBABLY A THIRD OF IT IS TAKEN UP BY THE RETENTION POND.

YOU HAVE SUPER GAMES ON THE NORTHERN PORTION LOOKING TOWARDS I-270. THEY ARE GOING TO DO THE MAIN ENTRANCE TOWARD I-270 AND WORK WITH THEM ON SIGNAGE.

>> WHAT TIME OF DAY WAS HAT? >> THIS IS PROBABLY 1:30, 2:00, ON A WEDNESDAY. SO AGAIN, IT'S THE FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WAS REALLY THE PINCH POINT.

ESPECIALLY OF A RIDAY AND SATURDAY EVENING.

LOOKING BACK ON THE SITE, THIS IS THE AREA WHERE THEY ARE GOING TO DO ADDITIONAL PARKING. YOU WILL SEE RESTRIPING AND ADDITIONAL SPACES. BECAUSE THE DOCKS WON'T BE NEEDED FOR THEIR USE. AGAIN, IT WAS WORKING WITH SUPER GAMES TO SEE HOW CAN THE SITE LAYOUT AND FUNCTION.

[01:10:02]

SOMEONE NEEDS TO MOW IN THAT PICTURE.

WHAT WE DID WHEN THIS WENT TO MUNICIPAL PLANNING, THEY DID TABLE THE APPLICATION TO GIVE THE APPLICANT TIME TO TALK TO THE PROPERTY OWNER TO THE NORTH AND SEE ABOUT ADDITIONAL PARKING, DO A PARKING AGREEMENT WITH THEM FOR OVERFLOW ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. IT WAS AN INPHATIC NO.

WE'LL HAVE YOU TOWED IF YOU COME OVER AND PARK.

THAT'S WHERE WE STARTED HAVING THE CONVERSATIONS WITH MR. MOORE WITH SUPER GAMES. SUPER AMES IS CTUALLY LOOKING AT ANOTHER SPACE IN WORTHINGTON ON HUNTLEY ROAD.

WITH KNOWING THAT WAS IN THE WORKS HE'S UNDER CONTRACT AND IS IN HIS DUE DILIGENT PERIOD. THEY ARE LOOKING AT MOVING TO 6580 HUNTLEY ROAD. KNOWING THE TIMING WE NEEDED FOR THE APPLICANT TO BE ABLE TO STILL BE INTERESTED IN THE BUILDING AND BE ABLE TO WORK THROUGH THEIR PROCESS, WAS ONE OF THE REASONS YOU WILL SEE THAT THE MOTION WAS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT FROM STAFF AND COMING FROM MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION. AGAIN, ONE OF THE THINGS WE LOOKED AT ALSO WAS SINCE THERE WAS NOT THE ABILITY TO HAVE ADDITIONAL PARKING FROM THE NEIGHBOR TO THE NORTH, WOULD THERE BE PARKING PERMITTED ALONG LAKE VIEW PLAZA? IT CURRENTLY IS. WE LOOKED AT THE IDEA F WE PERMITTED AND ALLOWED THE PARKING, WHICH WOULD ALLOW 40 TO 50 ADDITIONAL PARKING SPACES, HOW WOULD WE ALLOW THAT? MUNICIPAL PLANNING AND SERVICE AND FIRE AND EVERYONE AGREED WE THOUGHT SIDEWALKS SHOULD BE INSTALLED.

IF YOU ARE PARKING THERE, YOU COULD WALK ALONG THE SIDEWALKS TO GET YOU TO THE USE ITSELF. DUE TO THE LOCATION OF WHERE THIS WOULD TAKE PLACE, IT WOULD PROBABLY BENEFIT SUPER GAMES MORE SINCE THEY ARE ON THE NORTH THAN IT WOULD PLAY C US.

THEY ARE THE LAST ONES IN. WE LOOKED AT THE HIGHLIGHTED BLUE AREA AS THE AREA WHERE SIDEWALKS WOULD BE NEEDED.

ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS, WE HAVE A LARGE RIGHT-OF-WAY, LARGE AMOUNT OF PAVEMENT, STREET TREES IN THE MIDDLE.

WE NEED TO WATCH TO MAKE SURE THE CANOPY DOESN'T IMPACT THE FIRE AND EMS UNITS. IT WAS A PERFECT DAY BECAUSE WE WERE ABLE O SEE CARS PARKED ON THE STREET.

YOU ARE ABLE TO SEE A LITTLE BIT, KIND OF THE BUNNY TRAILS DEVELOPING ALONGSIDE THE STREETS WHERE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WALKING.

YOU CAN SEE IT A LITTLE BIT THROUGH HERE WHERE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WALKING. AGAIN, WE THOUGHT IF THIS DID GO FORWARD TO DO SIDEWALKS, YOU PULL UP, PARK, STEP OUT ON A FIVE-FOOT SIDEWALK. THAT WOULD GET YOU TO CUL-DE-SAC PORTION OF LAKE VIEW PLAZA. AGAIN, IT DID GET A RECOMMENDATION, LIKE I SAID, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU HAVE SEEN FROM STAFF AND MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION. WE DID RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THIS. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS KIND OF UNIQUE WITH THIS AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN THAT INCLUDES A VARIANCE, IT IMPACTS THE CONDITIONAL USE THE BOARD SAW.

THEY REALLY GO HAND IN HAND MOVING FORWARD.

WE LOOK AT TRAFFIC, NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES.

TRAFFIC PATTERNS. AND THAT REAL PINCH POINT WAS THE FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY HOURS.

WE HAD CONVERSATIONS WITH THE APPLICANT, WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO INSTALL SIDEWALKS? HAD A SIDEBAR CONVERSATION WITH MR. WHITED AND DETERMINED THE LINEAR FEET NEEDED FOR SIDEWALKS, APPROXIMATELY 55 TO $65,000 IS WHAT IT WOULD COST.

THE APPLICANT STATED THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO GO UP TO 60,000 FOR SIDEWALKS. IT'S NOT RECOMMENDED FOR SIDEWALKS IN THIS AREA IN THE PLANS.

-- >> B. KOWALCZYK: SERIOUSLY?

>> WE DID LOOK AT THAT. ONE OF THINGS, THE STAFF RECOMMENDATION CAME ABOUT THAT KIND OF TYING IT WITH AMENDMENT TO DEVELOPMENT PLAN AND CONDITIONAL USE WENT HAND IN HAND. PLAY C BUS STAFF AND EMPLOYEES WOULD NEED TO PARK ON LAKE VIEW PLAZA BOULEVARD TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL ON SITE PARKING FOR THE PATRONS.

AND THE EMPLOYEES WOULD PARK ON LAKE VIEW PLAZA.

WE ALSO HROUGH THE CONDITION THAT SIDEWALKS OULD NEED TO BE INSTALLED ALONG LAKE VIEW PLAZA BOULEVARD.

THIS IS WHERE IT GETS UIRKY. SINCE SUPER GAMES IS LOOKING AT MOVING WHAT IF THEY DON'T LEAVE, IF THEY DECIDE TO RELOCATE

[01:15:03]

WITHIN 90 DAYS OF THE CITY COUNCIL'S APPROVAL, THAT THOSE CONDITIONS THAT I REFERENCED WOULD NOT APPLY TO THAT CONDITIONAL USE. THE ONLY THINGS THAT WOULD APPLY WOULD BE A MINIMUM OF 80-ON SITE PARKING SPACES AT ALL TIMES, AND THE REQUIREMENT THE EMPLOYEES PARK OUT THERE WOULD NOT BE REQUIRED. WE FELT THE 90 DAYS GAVE THE APPLICANTS THEIR DUE DILIGENCE, MR. MOORE, TO FINISH HIS DUE DILIGENCE WITH TRYING TO MOVE TO THE HUNTLEY ROAD PROPERTY.

BUT IT PROTECTED US THE ND ALSO IF EVERYONE STAYED ON THE SITE WE GET ADDITIONAL PARKING AND SIDEWALKS OUT OF IT ALSO.

IT DID GO BEFORE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION ON MAY 30TH. GOT TABLED.

AND THEN CAME BACK ON JUNE 13TH WITH A RECOMMENDATION, CONDITIONAL APPROVAL RECOMMENDATION WITH THE CONDITIONS I REFERENCED. I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTI? MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: JUST O CLARIFY BECAUSE I'M A LITTLE CONFUSED ABOUT ALL OF THE PARKING NUM NUMBERS.

THE CODE REQUIRES 348 SPACES FOR THAT SITE.

BUT WHAT NUMBER WAS DETERMINED THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE CONSIDERING THE USE? 80, OKAY.

AND WE WOULD HAVE 80 SPACES IN THE PLAN THAT'S PROPOSED.

WHICH PLAN. >> SO THE 80 CAME ABOUT IF SUPER GAMES LEAVES, AND THAT WHOLE 174 SPACES WOULD OPEN UP, OR THOSE 174, 80 AT ALL TIMES WILL ALWAYS BE REQUIRED TO BE PLAY C BUS'.

WHEN SOMEONE ELSE COMES INTO SUPER GAMES, IT COULD BE A WAREHWAREHOUSING USE. THE PARKING WASN'T AN ISSUE.

IF ANOTHER USE CAME IN WITH A HEAVIER PARKING NEED, WE WOULD REVIEW THAT AS PART OF THE CONDITIONAL USE.

IT MAY BE AN INSTANCE, THE NORTHERN SITE MAY KICK THEM INTO THE SAME SCENARIO WE'RE DISCUSSING TODAY.

IT WOULD BE YOU NEED TO DO PARKING OR FIND OFF-SITE OR A USE THAT THIS COMPLETELY INCOMPATIBLE.

WITH SUPER GAMES, NOW WITH THE EXTENSION OF PLAY C BUS, IF WE HAD MORE PROPERTY TO WORK WITH, THEY ARE TWO GREAT USES THAT CAN

WORK WELL TOGETHER. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: MIC] --

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: IF I CAN DISTILL THIS WHOLE THING TO

LITTLE WORDS. >> I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: IF SUPER GAMES STAYS, THEN THERE IS A REQUIREMENT THAT PLAY C BUS BUILD SIDEWALKS TO ADD THE ADDITIONAL PARKING ON LAKE VIEW DRIVE, BOULEVARD, CIRCLE, WHATEVER IT'S CALLED. IF SUPER GAMES MOVES, THEN THEY HAVE ENOUGH ARKING RIGHT THERE AND PLAY C BUS DOES NOT HAVE TO

DO THE WORK ON LAKE VIEW? >> CORRECT.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: IF A NEW HEAVY PARKING USE COMES IN, WE'LL MAKE THEM PUT IN THE SIDEWALKS? MORE THAN LIKELY. FAIR ENOUGH.

>> TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE BALANCING ACT OF SEVERAL THINGS

AT A TIME. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THE SPEED LIMIT IS ON LAKE VIEW PLAZA RIGHT NOW.

>> WAS HOPING IT WOULD BE 25. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

INTRODUCED BY MR. FOUST. OKAY, MOVING ONTO REPORTS OF

[8.A.I. Community Visioning Consultant Follow-up]

CITY OFFICIALS. MS. STUART, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO YOU REGARDING THE COMMUNITY VISIONING FOLLOW-UP.

>> SINCE YOUR LAST DISCUSSION REGARDING THE POSSIBLE FACILITATORS FOR THE OMMUNITY AND VISIONING PROCESS, I HAVE RECEIVED A FEW FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS FROM COUNCIL TO SEND TO THE TWO FIRMS UNDER CONSIDERATION PLANNING NEXT AND POGGEMEYER. TWO OF THEM WERE FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD, QUESTIONS ABOUT EDUCATION COMPONENT AND HOW COMMUNITY MEMBERS WOULD BE EDUCATED THROUGH THE PROCESS.

AS WELL MORE INFORMATION ON HOW THEY HANDLE ABSTRACT IDEAS TO DRILL DOWN TO HAT CITIZENS ARE THINKING WHEN THEY MENTION THESE CONCEPTS. HOW THEY DEFINE THEM.

AND GET A BETTER HANDLE. TWO OF THEM APPEAR TO ASK FOR REVISED PROPOSALS FROM CONSULTANTS.

ONE, ASKING FOR REVISED PROPOSALS, PARTICULARLY COST PROPOSALS RELATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN, A SCOPE OF WORK AND AN DUCATION CAMPAIGN AS WELL AS REVISED PROPOSALS TO INCORPORATE DOOR TO DOOR OUTREACH AS PART OF THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH. WE WANTED TO BRING IT TO COUNCIL AS A WHOLE, TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS TO ADD. TWO, IF YOU WANT TO ASK FOR REVISED PROPOSAL AT THIS TIME WITH THOSE COMPONENTS.

ANOTHER OPTION WE CAN SEE IF YOU SELECT BASED ON QUALIFICATIONS, THAT FACILITATOR CAN WORK WITH CITY COUNCIL WITH THE VISIONING COMMITTEE TO CLARIFY WHAT THE PROCESS ARCHITECTURE IS GOING TO BE FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT. AT THAT TIME YOU COULD ASK FOR REVISED PROPOSALS UNDER THE THOUGHT THERE MAY BE SOME EVOLUTION TO COME WHEN THEY START WORKING WITH THE COMMITTEE

[01:25:03]

AND COUNCIL. IT'S TRYING TO SEE WHAT THE PLEASURE OF COUNCIL IS AT THIS POINT SO WE CAN SEND FOLLOW-UP

QUESTIONS TO THOSE FIRMS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTIONS? DO WE WANT TO GO FORWARD AND TRY TO SELECT BASED ON -- YOU KNOW, AFTER THE REFERENCE OF NOT MISTAKEN, THE NEXT STEP WE HAVE EITHER WAY IS THE COMMITTEE

DOING THE REFERENCE CHECKING. >> WE HAVE THREE COUNCILMEMBERS WHO AGREED TO DO THOSE. WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF GETTING

THOSE SCHEDULED. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'M WONDERING IF COUNCILMEMBERS NEED CHANGE PROPOSALS BEFORE THE REFERENCE CHECK. I THINK IT MAKES SENSE TO GET THE REFERENCE CHECK AND MAYBE HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF THOUGHTS.

I DON'T KNOW. MR. FOUST?

>> D. FOUST: THESE ARE GREAT QUESTIONS.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE QUESTIONS.

BUT I WOULD CONCUR WITH THE PATH YOU ARE ON, MADAM PRESIDENT.

THE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS PROBABLY ISN'T GOING TO CHANGE.

I WOULD SUGGEST WE STAY THE PATH.

AND SEE WHERE WE LAND AFTER THAT.

AND WE MAY FROM THE REFERENCE CHECKS HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO ASK AS ELL. MAYBE WE SIT IGHT --

10 DAYS, TWO WEEKS. >> YES, WE HOPE SO.

I WILL POINT OUT A SCHEDULING SITUATION, JULY 1 15 IS THE LAST TEETH MEETING OF CITY COUNCIL BEFORE SEPTEMBER.

IF YOU DON'T GET THIS WRAPPED UP AND YOU ARE WILLING TO HAVE A FURTHER MEETING, YOU CAN DO THAT.

THAT'S SOMETHING I'M COG NISNT OF.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE KIND OF LOOKING AT THE COMMITTEE. DOES IT LOOK LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET REFERENCE CHECKS IN PLACE?

>> I'LL TAKE THE HIT. I THINK WE HAVE SEVERAL DATESES

OVER THE NEXT 10 DAYS, >> I THINK THERE WAS AVAILABILITY LATER THIS WEEK. PROVIDED THE REFERENCES ARE AVAILABLE. RECOGNIZING, IT IS A HOLIDAY WEEK, IF THE REFERENCES ARE AVAILABLE, I THINK FRIDAY THERE WAS SOME TIME AVAILABLE. WE CAN SEE IF WE CAN GET THEM

DONE SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF ANYBODY A HAS THOUGHTS TO BE ADDED TO REFERENCE CHECKING, SEND IT TO ROBYN AND SHE CAN PASS IT TO THE COMMITTEE.

I HAD THOUGHTS AND PRINTED THEM AND SAT THEM DOWN AND THE PHONE RANG. BUT IF ANYBODY HAS THOUGHTS ON REFERENCE-CHECKING QUESTIONS. OKAY, YES?

>> D. SMITH: I WAS A LITTLE CONFUSED ON WHERE THE CONVERSATION WAS GOING AND WHAT DIRECTION WE WERE TAKING.

I ADVOCATE FOR GETTING AT LEAST THESE QUESTIONS TO HE TWO CONSULTANTS. IF WE'RE TRYING TO HIT A JULY TIMELINE, BY THE TIME THEY ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, SAY FOR NEXT WEEK TO GIVE US A WEEK TO TALK AND THINK ABOUT IT AND COME BACK AND VOTE ON IT, I'M OING TO ASSUME THE REFERENCE CHECKS ARE GOING TO WORK ON FINE BECAUSE WHO WOULD PUT A BAD REFERENCE IN. I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT IN MY LIFE.

LET'S ASSUME THEY ARE GOING TO GO OKAY THIS WEEK OR NEXT.

IN THE MEANTIME, STARTING TOMORROW, SEND THE QUESTIONS OUT

AND GET MORE CLARITY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN SHARED. DOES ANYBODY HAVE CONCERNS OR PROBLEMS WITH THE QUESTIONS BEING SENT OUT? SOUNDS LIKE IT'S A GO. I SEE A BUNCH OF NODDING HEADS

IN THE RIGHT DIRECT. >> I HAVE NO PROBLEM.

THE POINTS IS WELL TAKEN. IT'S A GREAT IDEA TO MOVE AHEAD WITH CONCURRENT EFFORTS. BUT I WOULDN'T SIMPLIFY THE NOTION OF REFERENCE CHECKING DOWN TO EITHER IT'S A GOOD OR BAD ONE. I THINK THERE ARE QUALITATIVE QUESTIONS WE'LL END UP ASKING TO ASCERTAIN FIT.

TO WHAT OUR MISSION IS MORE THAN JUST DID THEY DO A GOOD JOB.

>> D. SMITH: I'M GLAD YOU ARE ON THE COMMITTEE THEN.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ANYTHING ELSE ON THE VISIONING? I THINK WE ALL HAVE THE GOAL OF WANTING TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THIS COMMITTEE E ABLE TO MEET DURING OUR RECESS PERIOD OF TIME.

WE WANT THIS VISIONING COMMITTEE UP AND RUNNING.

AND THAT'S A GOAL I THINK EVERYONE IS -- IS PRETTY MUCH FELT THIS WAS IMPORTANT. I HAD A FEW PHONE CALLS FROM COMMITTEE MEMBERS EXCITED. I HAVE AN IDEA, HOW THAT.

WE HAVE EXCITED PEOPLE LOOKING AT REALLY GETTING STARTED AND

THAT'S A GOOD THING. >> JUST A POINT OF

[01:30:02]

CLARIFICATION. GO AHEAD AND SEND THESE FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS TO THE FIRMS. DO YOU WANT ALL FOUR, INCLUDING THE TWO REQUESTING EVISED

PROPOSALS? >>

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE REVISED PROPOSALS AS SEPARATE LINE ITEMS AND SERVICES.

I'M OKAY WITH ASKING THE QUESTIONS.

YEAH. >> GO AHEAD AND ASK THEM TO REVISE TO INCLUDE THE EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN AND DOOR TO

DOOR OUTREACH. >> R. DOROTHY: ADD SERVICE,

SEPARATE LINE ITEM. >> OKAY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHI? THAT WENT FASTER THAN I THOUGHT

[9. Reports of Council Members]

IT WOULD. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE?

>> A FEW OTHER MINOR ITEMS I WANTED TO MENTION.

FIRST, HOPEFULLY YOU WILL HAVE RECEIVED ALREADY, IF NOT, SOON IN YOUR INBOXES WE HAVE LAUNCHED NEW I.T. SECURITY TRAINING FOR EVERYBODY ON THE CITY'S EMAIL SYSTEM.

ALL OF US ON THE TAFF RECEIVED THIS ALSO.

IT'S REALLY LOOKING AT OUR I.T. DIRECTOR CALLS IT THE HUMAN FIREWALL. ONE OF THE RISKS FOR ANYWAY ORGANIZATION'S I.T. SYSTEMS ARE WHAT THE USERS ARE CLICKING ON IN THEIR EMAILS. THIS IS TRAINING GEARED TOWARD ELEVATING YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND EDUCATION AROUND THAT SO YOU CAN MORE READILY IDENTIFY FISHING AND OTHER EMAILS THAT MIGHT BE A SECURITY RISK FOR US. BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR THAT.

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT AND GO THROUGH THE TRAINING. I HAVE NOT YET COMPLETED IT WITH THE CITY MANAGER OUT OF TOWN. BUT I BELIEVE IT'S SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE ABOUT 45 MINUTES. TO TAKE IT.

AND THERE IS ALSO A LINK IN THAT INFORMATION ABOUT SOME HOME TRAINING. SO FOR YOUR OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS IN A HOME SETTING, WAYS TO MAKE YOUR HOME ECURITY BETTER TOO FROM AN I.T. PERSPECTIVE.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT, FEEL FREE TO ASK ME.

OBVIOUSLY GENE OLVER CAN MORE EFFECTIVELY ANSWER TECHNICAL QUESTIONS. LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. SECONDLY, WITH THE HOLIDAY THIS WEEK, WE ANTICIPATE COUNCIL PACKETS WILL GO OUT ON FRIDAY, RATHER THAN THURSDAY SINCE THAT'S THE 4TH OF JULY HOLIDAY. A PREVIEW AS ITH LAST YEAR, WE WANT O COME IN JULY AND START TALKING ABOUT BUDGET AND C.I.P.

TRENDS WE'RE EEING, PROJECTIONS WE'RE AWARE OF.

GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK ABOUT YOUR INTERESTS AND THINGS YOU WANT US TO KEEP IN MIND AS STAFF IS WORKING TO PROPOSE DOCUMENTS. WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER IT'S HELPFUL TO HAVE IDEAS.

MR. BARTTER HAS BEEN HARD AT WORK PULLING INFORMATION O PRESENT TO YOU. WE PLAN TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE REGARDING ENERGY EFFICIENCY INITIATIVES.

INCLUDING ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING LOCATIONS THAT WE'VE BEEN STUDYING. AND I'M SURE WE'LL HAVE OUR MONTHLY FINANCIAL REPORT AND MAYBE A COUPLE OF OTHER HINGS ON THERE, WE'RE TRYING TO GET INFORMATION TO YOU BEFORE THE AUGUST RECESS. THOSE ARE THE THINGS YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE ON FRIDAY. THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHI? MS. THRESS, ANYTHING TO ADD?

MR. LINDSEY. >> I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING, MADAM

PRESIDENT. >> MR. ROBINSON?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. SMI TH.

>> D. SMITH: I HAVE ONE ITEM. I MET WITH A COUPLE OF SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS LAST WEEK. IT WAS A PRODUCTIVE CONVERSATION. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CAME OUT OF THAT CONVERSATION WAS POTENTIALLY HOSTING A JOINT MEETING WITH SCHOOL BOARD AND CITY COUNCIL.

SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER JENNIFER BEST SAID THEY DID THAT 15 YEARS AGO WHEN SHE WAS FIRST ON. THERE WASN'T REALLY REASON TO DO IT AT THAT POINT. WE SAID WITH ALL THE CHANGES FORTHCOMING IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT, MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR US TO AT LEAST TEAM UP ONCE AND SEE HOW IT GOES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN Y YOU INCLUDED, DOE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER ON SAFER ACCESS FOR KIDS GOING TO SCHOOL, ESPECIALLY WITH THE WILSON HILL STUDENTS POSSIBLY BEING SENT TO WORTHINGTON WAY AND GOING ACROSS HIGH STREET.

THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT MAYBE THE CITY AND SCHOOL SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING TOGETHER TO TRY TO HELP NHANCE THE SAFETY OF THE

SCHOOL CHILDREN GOING TO SCHOOL. >> D. SMITH: EXACTLY.

SENT THAT TO MR. GREESON AND PRESIDENT MICHAEL.

I SAID JULY WOULD BE PRETTY AGGRESSIVE TO GET THAT IN.

BUT MAYBE A SEPTEMBER MEETING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYBODY

[01:35:01]

HAVE OPER OPPOSITION? SHOULD WE GO FORWARD? I DIDN'T THINK THERE WOULD BE ANYTHING.

MR. MEYERS? >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: NOTHING.

MS. DOROTHY. MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THANK YOU TO THE CITY STAFF WHO HELPED PULL OFF THE PICNIC WITH THE PARTNERSHIP TWO WEEKS AGO.

IT WAS A FANTASTIC EVENING FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ATTENDED, I HOPE YOU HAD A GOOD TIME. I CERTAINLY DID.

I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. A REMINDER, WORTHINGTON FIRST WEDNESDAY IS THIS WEDNESDAY. IT'S OF COURSE, A 4TH OF JULY THEME. COME ON OUT TO OLD WORTHINGTON AND SEE WHAT'S GOING ON. THAT'S IT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE ROTARY AND THE 4TH OF JULY PICNIC. I HAVE ONE THING TO BRING UP.

AND THAT IS TRAVEL. WE HAVE BUDGETED THE CITY HAD BUDGETED FOR, CONSISTENTLY BUDGETED UP O THREE PEOPLE GOING TO NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES, YOU KNOW, THREE PEOPLE, ONE MEETING. WHATEVER.

MS. KOWALCZYK HAS ASKED TO GO TO NATIONAL IN NOVEMBER.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I'M STILL TRYING TO --

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THIS ID BEING ABLE TO GO THIS SUMMER, DRIVING ALL THE AY TO DAYTON, OHIO, IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE MEETING -- THE SUMMER MEETING. IT'S SPECIALLY FOCUSED ON THE ENTERING OF SUBURBS, SMALL-TIER SUBURBS.

MR. ROBINSON IS INTERESTED IN DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

WE BUDGETED NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES.

THERE IS NOTHING SAYING WE CAN'T SEND SOMEONE TO SOMEPLACE ELSE.

LET THE COUNCIL KNOW WHAT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN?

>> D. ROBINSON: NATIONAL TRUST FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC PLACES. THEY HAVE A CONFERENCE IN OCTOBER. IT HAS INTERESTED ME FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS. WHETHER I GO THIS YEAR OR A FUTURE YEAR, I THINK IT WOULD BE ENTIRELY APPROPRIATE FOR COUNCILMEMBERS FROM WORTHINGTON AS AN HISTORIC ITY TO ATTEND THE CONFERENCE. AS I'VE LOOKED AT THEIR WEBSITE, THEY ARE NOT ONLY ABOUT WHAT I'VE DESCRIBED AS PRESERVATION, BUT REURBANNIZATION, VALLATION OF PUBLIC SPACE.

I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANYONE INTERESTED TO GO TO THEIR WEBSITE TO CHECK IT OUT. NATIONAL TRUST FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC PLACES. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NATIONAL LEAGUE OF CITIES, DOEDOESANYONE HAVE A PROBLEM WIS USING THIS FOR THE HISTORIC TRUST? NO. SINCE COUNCIL IS APPROVING, DO WE NEED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE? I THINK WE MADE A BUDGET PRIORITY WITH THE WHOLE COUNCIL. SINCE WE'RE MAKING A CHANGE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF USING SOME OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE MONEY --

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WHOA, I'M ASSUMING, THEY ARE ALL THE IN

THE BUDGET. >> HAVE A BUDGET FOR THREE OUT OF TOWN CONFERENCES FOR AIRFARE AND HOTEL.

IT CAN VARY. BUT I WOULD THINK THE THREE WOULD FIT. I HAVEN'T LOOKED AT SPECIFIC NUMBER INTERESTS THE NATIONAL TRUST.

BUT I'M CONFIDENT WE CAN ACCOMMODATE THEM.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL TH. OPPOSED? OKAY. HAVE FUN.

BRING SOME GOOD INFORMATION BACK.

>> FOR THOSE YOU WHO RE PLANNING TO TRAVEL, CAN YOU GET WITH SCOTT BARTTER OR THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT IN IN TERMS OF GETTING THE PAPERWORK IN FOR TRAVEL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAVE NOTHING ELSE.

DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANYTHING FOR THE GOOD OF COUNCIL? IF
