[4. Visitor Comments]

ONE VISITOR COMMENT. WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME UP ANDLET US KNOW WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO COMMENT ON?

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

IT IS THE FIRST TIME IN MORE YEARS THAN I CAN REMEMBER I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK TO THIS BODY.

STATISTICALLY SPEAKING, I WILL NOT PROBABLY BE AROUND TO EITHER ENJOY OR PAY FOR SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT, STATISTICALLY SPEAKING OF COURSE.

I LISTEN TO THE JOINT MEETING YOU HAD WITH THE SCHOOL BOARD.

WHEN I SAW THE LETTER THAT WAS SENT FROM THE ATTORNEYS, I WAS PLEASED TO SEE THE MENTION OF THE RECREATION DISTRICT SINCE THAT WAS ONE OF TWO INITIATIVES THAT I WAS ABLE TO GET THROUGH WHEN I HAD FRIENDS ON OTH SIDES OF THE LEGISLATURE.

THE MOTIVATION FOR THAT RECREATION DISTRICT WAS THAT I WAS COACHING SOCCER IN '87, '88 AND NOTICED MOST THE RECREATION PROGRAMS FOR THE CITY WERE ON SCHOOL DISTRICT LAND AND THAT THERE WERE EXPENDITURES THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAD TO DO.

THE LOGICAL THING WAS TO HAVE A RECREATION DISTRICT.

NOW, CITY COUNCIL AT THAT PARTICULAR TIME DECIDED NOT TO GO THROUGH THAT ADDITIONAL BUREAUCRACY BUT SIMPLY TO GIVE A DISCOUNT TO SCHOOL DISTRICT RESIDENTS IN THE PROGRAMS OF THE CITY AND I THINK THE ROGRAM STILL EXISTED IN THAT SAME THING AND IT WAS SATISFACTORY AT THE TIME.

AND WHAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN OF COURSE IS THE ISSUE OF SWIMMING. NOW, IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY THE SWIMMING, WE PAID $200 AS A BOND ISSUE.

AND SOME BOUGHT MORE THAN ONE AND WE ONLY BOUGHT ONE WHICH GAVE US A DISCOUNT. THEY WERE FLNON-REVENUE BONDS B IN SEEING WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW I'D URGE TO YOU CONSIDER THE RECREATION DISTRICT BUT NOT TALK ABOUT LEVIES BECAUSE A LEVY WOULD BE VERY EXPENSIVE SINCE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT RAISES PAIN $1.8 MILLION, $1.9 MILLION AND FOR HE $24 MILLION YOU'RE TALKING $12 MILLION OR $13 MILLION WHICH IS QUITE A BIT CONSIDERING SENIOR CITIZENS AND SO ON.

ON THE OND ISSUE IT'S A FRACTION OF A MILL.

AND IT ALMOST DISAPPEARS BECAUSE THERE ARE BONDS ON BOTH THE SCHOOL DISTRICT AND THE CITY WHICH ARE BEING RETIRED.

SO FINANCIALLY, IF YOU EVER CONSIDER GOING I'LL MAKE THE SAME SPEECH TO THE BOARD NEXT WEEK I HAVE LOOKED ON GOOGLE AND THE ADMINISTRATIONS OF SOME DISTRICTS I HAVE NO IDEA BUT THERE IS PRECEDENT NOW JUR -- YOUR ATTORNEYS AND I'M A MICRO BIOLOGIST AND I DON'T REALLY KNOW THE LAW AND I HOPE THAT CLARIFIES WHY THE RECREATION DISTRICT WHAT WAS MY THOUGHT AT

[00:05:03]

THE TIME AND THE FACT THAT I THINK THE TIME MAY HAVE COME FOR

IT NOW. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU. WE APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS.

[5.A. Franklin County Children Services]

MOVING ON WE HAVE A SPECIAL PRESENTATION FROM FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES. MR. GREESON, I'LL LET YOU

INTRODUCE OUR GUEST. >> M. GREESON: I WANT TO INTRODUCE DORIS MOORE AND WELCOME HER TO THE WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL EETING AND SHE'LL TALK ABOUT FRANKLIN COUNTY SIRN

SERVICES RENEWAL. >> I AM INDEED.

THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER GREESON.

TO THE PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND THE REST OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE TODAY.

I'M HERE TO BRIEFLY TALK ABOUT ISSUE 10 THE FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES LEVY. I CAN TELL FROM YOUR AGENDA YOU HAVE A VERY FULL AGENDA SO I'LL TRY TO BE AS BRIEF AS POSSIBLE.

THERE ARE 10 GOOD REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR THE FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES LEVY ISSUE 10.

I KIND OF STOLE THAT FROM DAVID LETTERMAN.

I'M DATING MYSELF. NUMBER 10, THIS LEVY WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR TAXES. NUMBER NINE, FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES SERVES OVER 30,000 CHILDREN EACH YEAR.

MOST OF THOSE CHILDREN ARE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED, UNFORTUNATELY BUT THEY COME FROM ALL PARTS OF OUR COUNTY.

NUMBER EIGHT, CHILDREN SERVICES HAS WORKED HARD TO INCREASE THE CULTURAL DIVERSITY OF ITS STAFF. WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT? 53% TO 55% OF THE KIDS AND FAMILIES WE SERVE ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR. CHILDREN SERVICES CAN NOW BOAST THAT LEADERS OF COLOR HAVE MORE THAN DOUBLED SINCE 2012.

THEY WENT FROM 29 LEADERS OF COLOR TO 61 IN SIX YEARS SO THAT'S QUITE AN IMPRESSIVE OUTCOME.

NUMBER 7, THE AGENCY POURS $71 MILLION INTO 100 PARTNER AGENCIES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY AND BEYOND THROUGH PURCHASE SERVICES AIMED AT SUPPORTING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES.

I KNOW YOU KNOW UNITED METHODIST CHILDREN'S HOME IS PARTNER THOUGH THE CAMPUS IS NO LONGER ACROSS THE STREET WE STILL DO BUSINESS WITH THEM EVERY DAY. NUMBER SIX, THE AGENCY IS COMMITTED TO BEST PRACTICES FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES.

TRAUMA INFORMED CARE IS THE EVIDENCE-BASED BEST PRACTICE MODEL THAT HELP CHILDREN DEAL WITH TRAUMAS CASE WORKERS HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN THIS MODEL AND WE CONTRACT WITH PROVIDER AGENCIES THAT PRACTICE THE MODEL.

NUMBER FIVE, OUTCOMES FOR CHILDREN ARE CONSTANTLY IMPROVING. THE BEST PLACE WITH A CHILD IS WITH THEIR BIRTH FAMILY HOWEVER, WHEN THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE, PLACEMENT IS THE RELATIVE IS NEXT BEST.

KINSHIP CARE HAS INCREASED BY 74% SINCE 214 WITH OVER 1900 CHILDREN GOING TO RELATIVES LAST YEAR.

NUMBER FOUR, THE AGENCY HAS A NO-EJECT, NO-REJECT POLICY.

NOT PASS, WE CANNOT SAY WE'RE E- NOT GOING TO SERVE ABUSED AND NEGLECTED CHILDREN BECAUSE THAT IS OUR LEGAL MANDATE.

WHAT IT WOULD MEAN HOWEVER, IS CASE WORKERS WOULD BE STRETCHED INCREASINGLY THIN AND SUPPORT SERVICES LIKE OUR THERAPEUTIC ARTS PROGRAM WOULD BE JEOPARDIZED.

NUMBER THREE, FRANKLIN COUNTY CHILDREN SERVICES HAS BEEN A GOOD STEWARD OF TAX DOLLARS WITH THE OPIOID RISE AND CHILDREN SERVICES HAS COMMITTED TO LIVING WITHIN THE RENEWAL DOLLARS AND HAS NOT ASKED FOR AN INCREASE. NUMBER TWO, 67% OF OUR FUNDING COMES FROM TWO PROPERTY TAX LEAVEIES SPREAD FIVE EARS APART. A $1.9 MILLION LEVY RENEWED IN 2014 AND THIS LEVY WHICH IS A $3.1 MILLION LEVY THAT EXPIRES AT THE END OF 2019. AGAIN, WITHOUT PASSAGE, SERVICES TO CHILDREN WILL BE JEOPARDIZED. AND NUMBER ONE IS IT WILL ALLOW CHILDREN SERVICES TO CONTINUE PROTECTING CHILDREN AND STRENGTHENING FAMILIES WITHOUT RAISING HOME OWNERS ORDER TAXES. THOSE ARE MY TOP 10 AND I'LL ENTERTAIN QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE ANY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> >> B. KOWALCZYK: THEY'RE ALSO USED TO DRAW DOWN FEDERAL 3 DOLLARS IS THAT CORRECT?

[00:10:02]

>> THAT'S CORRECT. BUT WE GET A SMALL AMOUNT OF FEDERAL DOLLARS. PROBABLY ABOUT 20%.

NOT VERY MUCH. >> YOU HAVE A RING IT TO FOR THE

TOP TEN. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

>> MY PLEASURE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE ALL THE MATERIALS AT THE PODIUM ON THE DIAS TOO SO THANK YOU FOR

BRINGING IT. >> THANK YOU.

[6.A. Meeting Minutes - October 7, 2019]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING ON TO THE APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES OF THE OCTOBER 7 MEETING HAD BEEN SENT OUT.

D. ROBINSON MOVES WE APPROVED IT SECONDED BY MR. FOUST.

'OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. OKAY, THE MINUTES HAVE BEEN

[7.A. Ordinance No. 40-2019 Tree Dedication Marker on the Village Green]

PASSED. ORDINANCE NO. THE INSTALLATION OF A TREE DEDICATION MARKER ON THE SOUTHEAST VILLAGE GREEN TO RECOGNIZE THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF FORMER COUNCIL MEMBER MEMBER LOU BRIGGS TO THE WORTHINGTON COMMUNITY.

MR. GREESON, I'LL LET YOU TALK BUT I'M SURE WE'LL ALL WANT TO SAY SOME WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT LOU BRIGGS.

WE HAVE WONDERFUL MEMORIES. >> M. GREESON: FIRST, IT REQUIRES A 6-7 VOTE OF COUNCIL FOR THE INSTALLATION OF ANYTHING ON THE VILLAGE GREEN. IT'S BEEN OUR CUSTOM AND LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO RING THINGS LIKE A TREE DEDICATION MARKER BEING RECOMMENDED THIS EVENING TO YOU TO VOTE ON IT.

I ALSO WANT TO WELCOME VICKY J JAFY LOU BRIGGS' DAUGHTER AND IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU BACK IN THE CITY BUILDING AND WE'RE GLAD TO SEE YOU BACK.

WE MISS YOUR MOM. I'LL TURN IT OVER TO MR. HURLEY WORK WITH THE FAMILY ON THIS AND OVERVIEW WHAT WE'RE DOING.

>> THANK YOU MR. GREESON, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

WE'VE BEEN WORKING NOT ONLY WITH MS. JAFY AND HIS OTHER DAUGHTER, SUZIE WHO LIVES OUT OF STATE BUT HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN DISCUSSIONS WITH STAFF HOW WE MIGHT GO ABOUT PLANT TREE IN MEMORY OF LOU BRIGGS. INITIALLY WE WERE DISCUSSING DIFFERENT OPTIONS AROUND THE PARK SYSTEM INCLUDE THE SCRIMMAGE GREEN WHEN E INTRODUCED HER TO THE IDEA OF OUR ARBOR DAY CEREMONY WHICH OBVIOUSLY ALREADY HAS A CROWD ATTEND AND WOULD GIVE IT MORE FORMAL RECOGNITION AMONGST THE COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL CHILDREN AND WHEN WE PRE OPPOSED -- PROPOSED THAT THEY WELCOMED THAT AS AN OPPORTUNITY.

AS WE DID WITH THE LATE HARVEY MITTON WE WOULD INCLUDE THAT AS PART OF OUR ARBOR DAY CEREMONY WITH THE PLANTING.

THAT'S BEFORE YOU THIS EVENING. WE'RE STILL STILL AWAYS FROM THAT AND BECAUSE SOME LIVE OUT OF STATE WE WANTED TO BRING IT NOW FOR APPROVAL TO MAKE PLANS. IN THE MEANTIME THE ARBOR COMMITTEE WOULD WORK WITH STAFF TO SELECT THE TREE AND BACK AND FORTH WITH THE FAMILY ON THE APPROPRIATE TREE LOCATED ON THE SOUTHEAST VILLAGE GREEN. I'D BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTIONS? LOU BRIGGS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE TOUCHING MY PERSONAL LIFE IN THE CITY.

WHEN I FIRST CAME TO TOWN ENDED UP INTERVIEWING FOR THE PARK AND REK ADVISORY BOARD AND THE INTERVIEW WAS HELD BY JUST LOU BRIGGS ALONE AND AN ENDED UP BEING APPOINTED TO THE PARK BOARD WHERE A SERVED A NUMBER OF YEARS AND WHEN I THOUGHT OF RUNNING FOR CITY COUNCIL, LOU WAS RIGHT THERE SAYING COME ON, LET ME SHOW YOU HOW TO DO IT. HE MENTORED ME ALL THE WAY THROUGH AND SHE WAS A DEFINITE MENTOR NOT JUST FOR ME AND ALL PEOPLE WHOEVER YOU WERE HE WAS OUT THERE TO HELP EVERYBODY IN EVERY WAY SHE COULD AND A VERY SPECIAL PERSON.

IT'S WONDERFUL TO HAVE LOU BRIGGS PERMANENTLY ON HER VILLAGE GREEN. ANYBODY LSE HAVE THOUGHTS THEY

[00:15:01]

WANT TO SAY? >> YEAH.

>> MR. MYERS. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I TOOK HER SPOT AS COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE TO MPC.

AND THAT'S BIG SHOES TO FILL. SOMEWHAT INTIMIDATED SHOES BUT 18 YEARS AGO SHE TOOK A CHANCE ON ME AND ENCOURAGED ME TO APPLY FOR THE ARCHITECTURAL REVIEW BOARD.

A LAWYER WHO DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE AND THOUGHT ALL HOUSES WERE SQUARE WITH PITCHED ROOFS AND GOT BEHIND ME AND SUPPORTED ME AND A WATCHED HER FOR A BETTER PART OF EIGHT YEARS IN HER ROLE AS COUNCIL REPRESENTATIVE.

SHE TOUT ME HOW TO DO GOVERNMENT RIGHT.

SHE WAS AS SELFLESS AND DEDICATED AS ANY PUBLIC SERVANT I'VE WORKED WITH AND I WORKED WITH A LOT AND I WAS PRIVILEGED TO WORK WITH HER AND IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYONE ELSE?

>> A QUESTION. IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING SHE WAS THE FIRST WOMAN ON CITY COUNCIL? IS THAT SOMETHING WE CAN INCLUDE IN THE RESOLUTION? IT'S SIGNIFICANT FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE WOMEN SERVING ON COUNCIL AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO IFT UP OTHER GIRLS AND WOMEN WHO ARE HOPEFULLY LOOKING AT POSITIONS

IN GOVERNMENT AND LEADERSHIP. >> ON THE MARKER ON IN THE

ORDINANCE? >> WHATEVER WORKS.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO MAKE A NEXT THAT SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT.

>> IS IT ALREADY IN THE MARKER? >> IT'S NOT BEEN MADE.

IT IS NOT MENTIONED SPECIFICALLY IN THE ORDINANCE AS IT IS

CURRENTLY WORDED. >> I DID NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EVER MEET HER UT SHE SOUNDS LIKE AN AMAZING WOMAN THAT IS VERY INSPIRING TO ALL OF US.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT GO OUT AND SEE IT AND GO SEE THE SEWER AND BE ON THE SPOT SO YOU SEE IT AND NO WHAT IT IS AND THEN YOU CAN ACT CORRECTLY AROUND IT. I HAVE NO PROBLEM.

I UESS MS. KOWALCZYK IS MOVING AN AMENDMENT THAT SAYS WHAT?

>> B. KOWALCZYK: INTERSECTION ONE AT THE ORDINANCE AT THE END OF THE SENTENCE INSTEAD OF A PERIOD, PUT A COMMA AND PUT THE FIRST FEMALE WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL MEMBER, PERIOD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SECONDED? ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE AMENDMENT? IF NOT ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

>> I REMEMBER SITTING OUTSIDE WITH HER AND I DID NOT REALIZE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF WHERE I WAS SITTING AND 10 EARS LATER THE PROPERTY WOULD BE AT THE HEART OF THE DISCUSSION.

I REMEMBER LOU FONDLY. I'M GLAD WE'RE GOING THIS ALSO.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYONE ELSE? ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ORDER -- SORRY, ROLL CALL.

ORDINANCE NO. 40-2019 PASSED AND FULL SEVEN VOTES SO WE KNOW IT CAN EASILY GO FORWARD. MOVING ON O NEW LEGISLATION.

[8.A. Resolution No. 59-2019 Community Visioning Agreement - Poggemeyer Design Group]

RESOLUTION NUMBER 59-2019 AUTHORIZING THE CITY MANAGER TO ENTER INTO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE DESIGN GROUP FOR SERVICES RELATED TO COMMUNITY VISIONING INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH AND MOVED BY MR. MYERS AND SECONDED BY MR. DOROTHY.

>> YOUR VISIONING COMMITTEE HAS BEEN HARD AT WORK AND THE VICE CHAIR JACK MINER IS GOING TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON WHERE HEY

ARE AND RECOMMEND WE ENTER >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE AGREEMENT WITH THE COPE OF PACKAGES.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. I'M ALWAYS HAPPY TO BE IN FRONT

[00:20:05]

OF YOU AND TONIGHT PLEASED TO BE HERE AS PART OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE. WE'VE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE MEET AND GREET AND ONE OF THE 3 BIGGEST CHUNKS OF OUR WORK HAS BEEN AROUND THE SCOPE YOU'LL SEE TONIGHT AND WERE ABLE TO ELECT A CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR. JOE SHURBIN WILL BE CHAIR AND I'LL BE SERVING AS VICE CHAIR. I THINK WE'LL BE A GREAT TEAM AND IT'S AN APPOINTED AND SELECTED PERSON.

LAEBLD HOW WE ENNED -- LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW WE ENDED UP ON THE COMMIT AND CADENCE ON HOW AND WHERE WE EXPECT TO REPORT BACK TO YOU. WE WEANCE -- ANTICIPATE BACK MONTHLY AND ONE OR BOTH OF US WILL BE HERE TO UPDATE YOU AND REPORT ON PROGRESS.

AND AS OF THIS EVENING START TO KICK OFF COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE GENERAL PUBLIC. ONE THING WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE GOING IS IN ADDITION TO FOCUSSING ON GETTING INPUT FROM THE COMMUNITY WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE COMMUNITY UNDERSTANDS THE PROGRESS THAT WE'RE MAKE AND THE WORK WE'RE DOING.

IT DOES TEAM LIKE AN COMMUNITY FOR COMMUNITY TO BE ENGAGED AND THERE'S A DIALOGUE BACK AND FORTH.

WE'LL START ANNOUNCEMENTS IN NEWSLETTERS AND STARTED COLLECTS NAMES OF THOSE INTERESTED IN THE VISIONING COMMITTEE AND THE WORK WE'RE DOING AND START PUSHING UPDATES TO THAT AS WELL.

ONE THING YOU'LL NOTICE IN THE SCOPE IS WE HAVE A REALLY STRONG FOCUS ON COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT THROUGH DIFFERENT AVENUES AND PHONE SURVEYING AND PERSON SURVEYING AND OOR TO DOOR SURVEYING AS WELL AS AN INTERVIEW PROCESS FORMAL AND INFORMAL INTERVIEWS. AND ONE THING I THINK WE'LL BE PLEASED ABOUT WE'LL BE BRINGING YOU AT ONE OF OUR FUTURE UPDATES IS BANG THE TABLE SOFTWARE WE THINK WILL ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY.

WE'RE TRYING TO MEET MEET THE COUNCIL'S EXPECTATION WE GET 80% TO 85% OF THE COMMUNITY ENGAGED IN THE PROCESS.

THAT'S A HIGH NUMBER BUT I THINK ONE WE FEEL WE'RE ABLE TO MEET THAT CHALLENGE. SO AS WE THINK BOUT WHAT'S IN THE SCOPE AND WHERE WE'VE MOVED THINGS AROUND IN THE SCOPE, IT REALLY WAS TO FOCUS A LOT MORE ON WHAT THE ENGAGEMENT WITH THE COMMUNITY WOULD BE. ONE OF THE THINGS I WILL SAY ABOUT THE SCOPE IS TO NOT LOOK AT IT AS OMPLETELY LINEAR.

ONE OF THE THINGS FROM A PRACTICAL STANDPOINT IS THE TIMING OF THAT WILL WEAVE THROUGHOUT.

SO THERE'LL BE ENGAGEMENT THAT GOES ON THROUGHOUT SO THE SURETTS WILL BE AT THE END BUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH WHEN WE'RE GETTING DIALOGUE AND FEEDBACK FRONT COMMUNITY THERE'LL BE VARIATIONS IN HOW WE DO THAT. A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR NEXT STEPS AND WHERE WE ANTICIPATE GOING.

WE PANTS PATE SPENDING OUR NEXT FEW MEETINGS DOING A COUPLE FOCUSES. ONE IS MEETING WITH CITY STAFF ON GETTING A STATE OF DEVELOPMENT IN THE COMMUNITY AS IT CURRENTLY EXISTS. WE'LL BE DOING THAT OVER THE NEXT MEETING OR TWO AS WELL AS MEETING REPRESENTATIVES FROM W WARPSY AND POGOMYER TO THINK OF THE NEED IN THE COMMUNITY BASED ON THE SURROUNDING AREA FROM A BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT STANDPOINT AND FROM A GENERAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. SO WITH THAT, WE WOULD RECOMMEND WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THE SCOPE AND PROCUREMENT CONTRACT WITH

POGMYER AND ASSOCIATES. >> DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ON

THIS? >> THANK YOU.

SO I KNOW THAT OU KNOW WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AGE FRIENDLY WORTHINGTON AND ONE THING THAT HAS COULD BE COMPLETED AS PART OF THAT PROCESS MOVING FORWARD IS AN ASSESSMENT.

I SEE APERFECT OPPORTUNITY WITH TO INCLUDE IF POSSIBLE QUESTIONS

[00:25:08]

AROUND AGE FRIENDLY OR THINGS LIKE THAT AND WONDERING, HAVE YOU TALKED ABOUT THE TYPES OF QUESTIONS YOU'RE ASKING IN

DETAIL? >> WE HAVEN'T YET.

WE HAVEN'T GOT INTO THE TYPES OF QUESTIONS YET AND THAT'S SOMETHING E'RE PROBABLY ABOUT A MONTH AWAY FROM AT LEAST.

>> OKAY. YOU TALKED ABOUT BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AND THINGS LIKE THAT BUT THERE'S OTHER DEMOGRAPHIC ISSUES I HOPE YOU'LL CONSIDER AND I KNOW YOU KNOW ABOUT AGE-FRIENDLY COMMUNITIES BUT I'M HAPPY TO SHARE AND I KNOW STAFF

WILL TOO. >> WE SPENT TWO FULL MEETINGS 3 GOING LINE BY LINE THROUGH THE PROPOSAL.

ONE PIECE HAVE YOU IS A RELATED VERSION IS A CHANGE VERSION THAT WE ACTUALLY DROVE IT WAS A GROUP BY GROUP DISCUSSION AND WE ZLIB RATED ON A COUPLE -- DISTRIBUTE RATED AND ONE THEME WAS TO MAKE SURE WE HAD A FULL UNDERSTANDING THAT WE WERE DRIVING THE PROCESS. THAT IT WASN'T A CASE WHERE IT WAS COMING FROM COUNCIL OR COMING FROM THE DESIGN ASSOCIATES. BUT THEN THE OTHER PIECE WAS REALLY MAKING SURE WE ADD FLEXIBILITY TO THINK OF HOW WE WANTED TO ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY SO IT WASN'T PRESCRIBED TO US.

APPROVAL THIS TONIGHT REPRESENTS A CONSENSUS.

>> REPRESENTS THE ENTIRE COMMITTEE.

CORRECT. >> WE'VE HAD COMMUNITY MEMBERS MEET WITH US AND THE OTHER OPPORTUNITY IS TO REACH OUT TO ME, JOE OR ROBIN STEWART ORKING WITH US TO GET THE GROUPS ON OUR LIST AND WE'LL REACH OUT SPECIFICALLY TO THOSE GROUPS.

WE REALLY PLAN TO HIT A REALLY BROAD GROUP OF ORGANIZATIONS OF GROUPS OF PARTS OF THE COMMUNITY.

WE'VE BEEN STRATEGIC ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT WE KNOW WITHIN THE CURRENT MAKEUP OF THE VISIONING COMMITTEE WHERE ARE ALL OF US CONNECTED AND WHERE ARE WE NOT.

WE'RE ABLE TO ET A STRONG FEEL FOR WHERE WE NEED TO DO OUTREACH

IN THE COMMUNITY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. D

ROBINSON. >>

>> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU FOR WILLING TO SERVE AS VICE CHAIR AND CHAIR. I SPOKE TO HIM AND HE SAID I THINK THE VISIONING COMMITTEE IS RECOGNIZING THE UNDERTAKING WE'VE ASSUMED AND HOW VAST IT IS AND NO ONE WAS EXACTLY STEPPING FORWARD TO ASSUME THE LEADERSHIP.

I'M GLAD THE TWO OF YOU HAVE. I CAN THINK OF NO TWO BETTER FOLKS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL IN FAVOR OF THE RESOLUTION SAY AYE.

CONGRATULATIONS. IT'S NOW APPROVED AND YOU GUYS HAVE AND -- WORK TO DO AND WE'RE EXCITED EVERYONE'S MOVING

THIS FORWARD. >> THANK YOU.

[8.B. Resolution No. 60-2019 Amendment to Development Plan - 535 Lakeview Plaza Blvd]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: RESOLUTION 60-2019 AUTHORIZING THE AMENDMENT TO THE FINAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR 535 LAKEVIEW PLAZA BOULEVARD AND AUTHORIZING VARIANCES AND THE VOLLEYBALL CLUB WITH CHRIS V VONDRAN AND MOVED BY ADOPTION BY MR. KOWALCZYK AND SECONDED Y MR. GREESON.

[00:30:04]

>> I'LL TURN IT OVER TO LEE BROWN WHO'S STAFF AND WELCOME MR. VONDRAN TO THE CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS.

>> THIS MAY LOOK FAMILIAR WHEN PORTION.PPROVED ON THE SOUTHERN- THAT WAS THE INDOOR ADVENTURE PARK.

AT THAT TIME, GARY MOORE WAS LOOKING TO RELOCATE TO A PROPERTY ON HUNTLEY ROAD THAT ACTUALLY HAS MOVED FORWARD.

MR. MOORE AS ABLE TO PURCHASE THE OLD FRUIT AND NUT BUILDING AND MOVING OUT OF THE SUPER GAMES LOCATION.

HE IS WORKING WITH THE GREATER COLUMBUS VOLLEYBALL CLUB TO TAKE OVER THEIR 25,000 SQUARE FEET SPACE ON THE NORTHERN PORTION OF THE SITE. WITH THIS THIS LOOKS FAMILIAR FROM THE LAST TIME. PREVIOUS APPROVAL WAS THERE ARE FOE PARKING. AGAIN, I THINK AT THAT MEETING I THINK I WAS ASKED TO SEE IT AGAIN ON THE NEED FOR PARK DEPENDING ON USE AND HERE WE ARE LATER WITH THE SAME REQUEST.

HOWEVER THIS TIME THE NEED IS NOT AS INTENSE AS SUPER GAMES WAS. YOU'RE LOOKING AT 60 TO 70 NEEDED PARKING SPACES ON THE NORTHERN PORTION OFF THE SITE THE LEFT SIDE. THE APPLICANT IS ADDING 26 3 ADDITIONAL SPACES. WE'RE GOING FROM 170 SPACES YOU SAW NOW TO 196 SPACES. HOWEVER, WITH THAT THERE'S A NEED FOR VARIANCE BECAUSE IT'S NOT ABLE TO MEET CODE RETIREMENT AS SPELLED OUT IN THE CODE. -- REQUIREMENT AS SPELLED OUT BY CODE AND THE TWO OTHER VARIANCES ED ARE FOR THE DRIVE.

THE CODE REQUIRES 22 FEET FOR DRIVE OUT WITH THE ADDITIONAL OF THE 26 PARKING SPACES ON THE NORTH SIDE AND IT GOES FROM 21 TO 25 FEET WIDTH AND WORKING WITH LIEUTENANT DUNN AND HE FIRE DEPARTMENT MINIMUM CODE IS 20 FEET.

WE AT LEAST MEET AND EXCEED HAT HOWEVER, IT'S A VARIANCE NEEDED FOR CODE REQUIREMENT. ALSO WITH THAT, THE PARKING SPACE SIZE TYPICALLY WITH AN R PARK AND IT'S TYPICALLY A 9 X 9 AND THEY ARE SUGGESTING 9 X 15. IT WENT BEFORE THE PLANNING COMMISSION ON OCTOBER 10 AND RECOMMENDED FOR APPROVAL AND I CAN ANSWER ANSWER QUESTIONS YOU HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS?

>> HOW LONG AGO DID WE SET UP THE PARKING REQUIREMENTS FOR ZONING? WE'RE AUTO ORIENTED

>> THE ORIGINAL CODE WAS AN '71 WITH ADDITIONAL TWEAKS.

IT NEEDS A THOROUGH EYE OVER IT. >> I'M EXCITED ABOUT MORE

BUSINESSES IN WORTH TON. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: GARY MOORE WAS HATCHY ABOUT THE NEW BUILDING AND HAPPY WITH THE HELP FROM STAFF AND ASKED TO COME IN AT SOME POINT IN OUR COUNCIL MEETING AND EXPRESS HIS APPRECIATION FOR EVERYTHING AND HE'S VERY EXCITED ABOUT WHEEZE -- WHAT'S HAPPENED IN HIS NEW SPACE AND HOW MUCH STAFF HELP HIM AND WHAT A GREAT JOB YOU GUYS HAVE DONE. KUDOS AND THANK YOU.

IF THERE'S NO OTHER COMMENTS ALL IN FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. OKAY, THAT'S PASSED.

[9.A.I. Proposed 2020 Operating Budget & Five-Year Forecast]

REPORTS TO CITY OFFICIALS MOVING ON TO THE PROPOSED 2020 OPERATING BUDGET AND FIVE-YEAR FORECAST.

MR. GREESON. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT 3 MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. IT'S MY PLEASURE TO KICK OFF THE PRESENTATION OF THE CITY MANAGER'S SUGGESTED BUDGET FOR PRESENTATION. TO THE CHARTER REQUIRES I DEVELOP A BUDGET IN CONSULTATION WITH THE DEPARTMENTS AND SUBMIT

[00:35:05]

IT TO YOU AND THAT STARTED MONTHS AGO AND INVOLVES ANY PEOPLE IN THE ORGANIZATION. AS WE START, I WANT TO THANK EACH OF THE DIRECTORS AND THEIR STAFFS FOR THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO DEVELOPING THE BUDGET AND THE CAPITAL PLAN AND SPECIFICALLY CALL OUT FOR RECOGNITION THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT TEAM LED BY MR. BARTER FOR THEIR WORK ON BOTH DOCUMENTS.

THE ONE WE'LL PRESENT FIRST THE OPERATING BUDGET AND THE CAPITAL PLAN AND ALSO ROBIN STEWART FOR HER WORK ON THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN. THEY'LL HELP PRESENT THE DOCUMENTS THIS EVENING BUT THOUGHT IT'D BE APPROPRIATE TO THANK THEM FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND THE REST OF THE DEPARTMENTAL LEADERSHIP EAM. HERE'S HE PURPOSE OF THE BUDGET. LET ME PLACE A LITTLE MORE EMPHASIS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THESE DOCUMENTS.

OUR ROLE IN PREPARING IT AND YOUR ROLE IN REVIEWING, AMENDING AND APPROVING IT. OUR MISSION IN CITY GOVERNMENT IS TO ENSURE AN EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY OF LIFE FOR CITIZENS.

AND TO UCCEED WE'VE DEVELOPED OVER TIME A SERIES OFS SERVICES, FACILITIES, PROGRAMS, PRACTICES AND PARTNERSHIPS THAT WE GENERALLY CALL OUR LEVEL OF SERVICE.

ALL THE THINGS WE DO TO HELP ENSURE AN XCEPTIONAL QUALITY OF LIFE. WE'RE SEEKING TO CONTINUE OUR CURRENT LEVEL OF SERVICES AND PARTNERSHIPS IN THIS BUDGET AND YOU'LL HEAR A LOT ABOUT THAT IN THE COMING WEEKS.

YOU ALSO HAVE ADOPTED NUMEROUS PLANS.

THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, THE PARKS MASTER PLAN, BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN PLAN. WE HAVE STATUTORY OR OTHER LEGAL MANDATES. AN EXAMPLE OF THAT IS OUR EPA SEWER CONSENT ORDERS AND PRIORITY AND THEY ARE OUT RECOMMENDATIONS OR PROPOSED ACTIONS IN VARIOUS AREAS.

AGAIN, ALL AIMED AT IMPROVING, ENHANCING, MAINTAINING OUR LEVEL OF SERVICE AND ADDING TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR OUR CITIZENS. ALL THESE THINGS INFLUENCE THE BUDGET AND MANY PLANS INFLUENCE THE CIP YOU'LL HEAR ABOUT.

TONIGHT WE'LL BROADLY OVERVIEW THE OPERATING BUDGET AND COVER IN PARTICULAR THE FIVE-YEAR FORECAST.

SUBSEQUENT MEETINGS WILL PROVIDE MORE DETAILED OVERVIEW OF DEPARTMENTS AND SERVICE AREAS. OUR DESIRE'S TO COVER IT AT A HIGH LEVEL AND GIVE A HIGH-LEVEL FINANCIAL PICTURE AND THAT WOULD DETAILED DISCUSSIONS.R THE MORE- WE DO WANT YOUR QUESTIONS BUT WILL NOT BE ASKING FOR ANY SPECIFIC DIRECTION THIS EVENING RELATED TO THE OPERATING BUDGET. ON THE CIP, WHICH WE'LL TALK ABOUT IN A LITTLE BIT. MS. STEWART WILL DO A PRESENTATION PACKED WITH INFORMATION AND A DEEPER DIVE, IF YOU WILL, INTO OUR CAPITAL INVESTMENT PLAN.

AGAIN, WE'RE NOT GOING TO ASK FOR SPECIFIC DIRECTION OR A DECISION BUT I THINK IT'D BE HELP FOL -- HELPFUL TO IDENTIFY QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS TO PREPARE INFORMATION FOR A FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSION IN NOVEMBER.

WE SEE SOME PARTICULAR CHALLENGES IN THE FUTURE RELATED TO OUR CAPITAL NEEDS AND THE FACT THAT OUR NEEDS EXCEED AVAILABLE REVENUES. WE'RE GOING TO HIGHLIGHT THAT THIS EVENING. AND SOME OF THE IDEAS WE HAVE BUT AGAIN MOSTLY PROVIDE AN INFORMATIONAL FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE DISCUSSIONS. LET ME TOUCH ON THE BUDGET THEMES IN THE OPERATING BUDGET BEFORE I TURN IT OVER TO MR. BARTER. AS I SAID A LITTLE BIT BEFORE, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CONTINUING OUR EXISTING SERVICES.

I DON'T REALLY LIKE THE WORD MAINTENANCE.

I WANT TO SAY WE'LL CONTINUE OUR HIGH LEVEL OF SERVICES THAT SUPPORT OUR CITIZENS' EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY OF LIFE.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON IS A TRANSITION OF 3 OUR 9-1-1 CALL ANSWERING, UTILIZING FUND BALANCE TO ONE-TIME MONEY TO INVEST IN A STRATEGIC MOVE OF 9-1-1 SERVICES. YOU'LL SEE THAT INFLUENCING THE BUDGET THIS YEAR. WE'RE ALSO UTILIZING FUND BREAKING NEWS TO HELP US DEAL -- BALANCE NEWS TO HELP DEAL WITH THE VAKE CAN SI AT THE ANTHEM -- VACANCY BUILDING.

IMPORTANCE OF FUND BALANCE FOR HAVING THE LEXIBILITY TO MAKE STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS AND THAT'S WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH 9-1-1 ND TO BE AVAILABLE TO HELP US DEAL WITH PERIODIC ECONOMIC EVENTS.

[00:40:04]

YOU'LL EE US TALKING ABOUT THAT IN THE BUDGET THIS YEAR.

THE LAST BULLET IS WHAT WE ASSUME WILL BE THE INCREASE OR WHAT WE PROJECT WILL BE THE INCREASE OF INCOME TAX COLLECTIONS WHEN WE RETURN IN '20, '21, MR. BARTER WILL COVER THE FIVE-YEAR FORECAST AND GET INTO MORE DETAIL.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. THE FIRST SLIDE HOW DO WE PAY FOR SERVICES. THE EMPHASIS IS ON INCOME TAX, 68% IT'S PROBABLY LOWER THAN YOU'RE USED TO SEEING.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE PIE CHART COOP -- CAPTURES REVENUE FROM THE WATER FUND AND STATE HIGHWAY AND SEWER FUND AND IN THE GENERAL INCOME TAX IT MAKES UP ABOUT 71%.

IN TERMS OF INCOME TAX RELIANT ON EMPLOYER WITHHOLDINGS.

78% OF OUR INCOME TAX IS EXPECTED TO COME FROM EMPLOYER HOLDING AND 11% FROM INDIVIDUAL AND 11% FROM BUSINESS NET PROFIT. AS WE LOOK AT THE 2020 INCOME TAX ESTIMATE WE'RE PROJECTING A SMALL AMOUNT OF GROWTH.

LESS THAN HALF A PERCENT. $26 MILLION, AND THEN IN 20-21 IT GOES UP AND TO GENERATE $1.3 MILLION IN INCOME TAX WE NEED GROWTH IN PAYROLL. IN 2022 WE ANTICIPATE IT GOING UP ANOTHER $685,000 IN TERMS OF INCOME TAX RECEIPTS.

HOW DO WE PAY FOR SERVICESP? IN 2020 WE PANTS PATE $20.5 MILLION A 2.5% INCREASE FROM THE 2019 ANTICIPATED AMOUNT.

OVER A FIVE-YEAR PERIOD PARK AND REC FEES HAVE INCREASED AND IT'S CYCLICAL. IN 2020 EMS TRANSPORT FEES AND

FIRE SERVICES AT UNDER $500,000. >> PARKS AND REC WE HAVE THE OVERALL BUDGET OF ABOUT $6 MILLION.

THE FEES ARE $2.5 MILLION. >> CORRECT.

>> AND ANYTIME EMS GOES OUT WE TRY TO GO OUT FOR IT BUT WE

DON'T COLLECT. >> CORRECT.

>> FIRE PROTECTION SERVICES USED TO BE THE TOWNSHIP AND WE TOOK

IT OVER BUT NOW THE TOWNSHIP. >> THAT'S THE SHARING TOWNSHIP PORTION AND THE LARGER PORTION IS RECEIVING 80% FOR THE TOWNSHIP. AND POLICE PROTECTION EACH YEAR.

YOU APPROVED THAT AS PART OF THE BUDGET PROCESS.

>> THANK YOU. >> CONTINUING WITH PROPERTY TAXES. IN 2020 WE ARE ANTICIPATING ABOUT $3.3 MILLION IN PROPERTY TAXES DIVIDED BETWEEN THE GENERAL FUND AND GENERAL BOND RETIREMENT FUND.

IT'S A 2.3% INCREASE FROM 2019. THE TRIENIAL UPDATE AND IT'S MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN THE $2.3 MILLION AS I'VE RESEARCHED THIS.

IT COULD BE 8% OR 9% BUT RIGHT NOW IT'S FOR $20.3 MILLION.

>> WE WERE TALKING TO FRANKLY COUNTY AND THEY WERE REQUESTING

$3.1 MILLION. >> THE CITY HAS FIVE, YES.

>> CONTINUING WITH REVENUE SOURCES.

2020 ESTIMATE OR GAS TAX AND THE MUNICIPAL MOTOR VEHICLE LICENSE TAX MMBLT, WE'RE ANTICIPATING A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE OF $347,000 DUE TO THE INCREASE IN GAS TAX APPROVED BY THE STATE LEGISLATURE. WE ALREADY STARTED SEEING SOME OF THAT FOR 2019 BECAUSE OF THE FISCAL YEAR FOR THE STATE RUNS THROUGH JUNE AND STARTS IN JULY SO E STARTED SEEING THAT FOR

[00:45:06]

AUGUST, SEPTEMBER COLLECTIONS. THIS IS GOING TO BE UTILIZED TO REDUCE THE TRANSFER TO THE STREET MAINTENANCE FUND.

I HAVE A FIVE-YEAR FORECAST FOR THE STREET MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR FUND. CAN SEE HOW IN THE PAST WE TRANSFERRED $250,000 INTO THAT BECAUSE IT FUNDS SIX POSITIONS AND THE INCREASE IN HEALTH COSTS, THE GAS TAX DID NOT KEEP UP. WE'RE ELIMINATING THE TRANSFER WHICH IS GOING TO BE HOW WE UTILIZE THE GAS TAX.

HOWEVER, AS WE MOVE INTO 2021, 2022 AND 2023 AND 2024 WE START TO ACCUMULATE AND WE CAN INCREASE CAPITAL SPENDING FROM

THERE. >> THIS GAS TAX MONEY AND LICENSE TAX MOONEY GOES DIRECTLY TO FUND FOR THE PEOPLE WHO PROVIDE STREET CLEANING AND LEAF COLLECTION AND SWEEPERS AND SNOW

PLOWS. >> YES.

>> THEN WE HAVE TOTALLY SEPARATE STREET MAINTENANCE?

>> THE STREET MAINTENANCE AND OPERATING FUND ARE SIGNIFICANT WITH SEWER AND WATER SPLITS A FULL-TIME PERSON EACH AND THERE'S LOT TO DO WITH THE TAX THAT RECEIVES ITS OWN FUNDING IN THE MMVLT FUND WHICH IS SEPARATE FROM THIS.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE ANTICIPATING UTILIZING IT TO REDUCE THE

TRANSFER FROM THE GENERAL FUND. >> THAT'S THE REVENUE SIDE.

IT STARTS WITH PUBLIC SAFETY INCLUDING POLICE PROTECTION AND FIRE PROTECTION AND INSPECTION AND DISPATCHING.

HERE YOU CAN SEE IT'S ABOUT $16 MILLION TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES.

NEXT LARGEST EXPENDITURE CATEGORY IS PARKS AND RECREATION OVER $6 MILLION AND A THIRD WOULD BE ENGINEERING AND PUBLIC SERVICE AT JUST OVER 4 MILLION. PRESENTED DIFFERENTLY AS A PERCENTAGE IN A PIE CHART, 46% OF OUR EXPENDITURES ARE IN PUBLIC SAFETY AT LEAST ON THE OPERATING SIDE.

17% FOR PARKS AND RECREATION JUST ABOUT 12% FOR PUBLIC SERVICE AND ENGINEERING. I THINK THIS MAY BE THE LAST

YEAR OF A FIVE-YEAR CONTRACT. >> I THINK THAT'S RIGHT.

>> I THOUGHT IT WAS LONGER THAN THAT.

>> I THOUGHT IT WAS COMING UP SOON.

SO I KNOW AT ONE POINT WE SPLIT OUT THE UTILITIES AND SO FORTH FOR EACH DEPARTMENT AND THEY'RE3 REFLECTED HERE.

WHAT ABOUT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN ADMINISTRATION FOR EXAMPLE.

YOU SHARE A BUILDING. >> THE COST ARE ROLLED INTO GENERAL ADMINISTRATION FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

THE COMMUNITY SENIOR AND FOR SOMETHING LIKE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND DMINISTRATION ALL OF THE COST ROLLED UP INTO GENERAL ADMINISTRATION IN TERMS OF BUILDING COSTS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE WE WERE CAPTURING EXPENSES

FROM THE FUND. >> YOU'RE NOT ABSORBING

UTILITIES? >> NO, IT INCLUDES THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUND AND THEN THE EXPENDITURES OUT OF GENERAL ADMINISTRATION. WHAT I WAS TRYING TO DO BY BREAKING THIS DOWN FURTHER IS NOT LUMP EVERYTHING INTO GENERAL ADMINISTRATION. I DON'T CONSIDER OUTSIDE GROUP FUNDING GENERAL ADMINISTRATION. I WANTED TO PULL THAT OUT SAME WIN REFUSE COLLECTION WHERE PREVIOUSLY IT MAY HAVE BEEN 3 LUMPED IN AND I PULL IT OUT INTO DEEPER DIVE CATEGORIES.

PUBLIC SAFETY. AGAIN, FIRE --

>> WE'RE TRYING TO GET A QUESTION IN THERE.

>> ON THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT PERCENTAGE THERE, IS THERE A BENCHMARKING OUT THERE AMONG SIMILAR -- IS THERE ANYTHING THAT GIVES A FRAME OF REFERENCE WHERE WE TAND COMPARED TO

SIMILAR CITIES? >> WE CAN PULL THAT INFORMATION

[00:50:02]

FROM OTHER MUNICIPAL BUDGETS. >> IF THERE'S ANYTHING OUT THERE

I'D BE INTERESTED. >> SO PUBLIC SAFETY T FIRE AT 7. MILLION AND PLEASE AT $7.6 MILLION AND THE $1.1 MILLION FOR DISPATCH AND THAT CONTRACT INCLUDING LAW ENFORCEMENT AND 9-1-1 AND DISPATCH AND OUTREACH. PARKS AND RECREATION.

YOU CAN SEE THE BREAKDOWN IN TERMS OF COMMUNITY CENTERS ABOUT $3 MILLION, RECREATION PROGRAMS AT 918,000 AND SENIOR $585,000.

>> PUBLIC SERVICE AND ENGINEERING AND STREET COLLECTION AND BUILDING MAINTENANCE.

GENERAL ADMINISTRATION AND WE'RE COVERING BROAD CATEGORIES AND WE'LL DIVE DEEPER IN NOVEMBER ON DEPARTMENTAL BUDGETS.

MOVING TO THE FIVE-YEAR FORECAST.

>> THESE ARE PROJECTIONS AND YOU SEE THE DROP IN 2020 IS DUE BECAUSE WE HAVE A FLAT INCOME TAX AND DON'T HAVE THE ONE-TIME REVENUE FROM THE TRANSFER OF THE RESOLVING FUND WE HAD THIS YEAR.

IN 2021 YOU'LL SEE A DECENT SPIKE.

THAT'S THE $1.3 MILLION THAT HITS IN THE INCOME TAX PROJECTIONS FOR 2011 THEN ABOUT 2.5%, 2.12% IN OUTER YEARS IN TERMS OF PERCENTAGE INCREASE ON THE EXPENDITURE SIDE, YOU CAN SEE THE SPIKE IN 2020. THAT'S DUE TO FUNDING BOTH THE FULL YEAR OF THE CONTRACT WITH ENRACK AND RUNNING OUR OWN DISPATCH CENTER. THAT'S ABOUT $751,000 IN ONE-TIME COSTS BUT GENERATES SAVINGS OF CLOSE TO $370,000 IN 2021. YOU CAN SEE THE EXPENDITURE DROP IN 2021 WITH THE AVINGS FROM THAT TRANSFER OF SERVICES.

AND YOU SEE THE SIGNIFICANT FUNDING BALANCE AND WE'RE PROJECTING EXPENDITURES WILL EXCEED REVENUES BY $1.7 MILLION IN 2020. THAT INCLUDES ACCOUNTING FOR 4% OF UNEXPENDED APPROPRIATIONS WHICH IS MONEY WE BUDGETED BUT DID NOT SPEND. THAT NUMBER IS IN 2021, $133,000 TO THE NEGATIVE AND $163,000 IN 2022 AND $276,000 IN 2024.

WITH THIS PROJECTION WE STAY ABOVE THE 35% MINIMUM FUND BALANCE THROUGH THE ENTIRETY OF THE PROJECTION.

THE SAVINGS AND AGAIN WITH THE REVENUE COMING BACK IN 2021.

>> THAT'S FROM THE BUILDING ANTICIPATION AND THEN THE BLACK LINE IS THE 35% THAT IS WHAT WE REQUIRE.

WHY DO WE HAVE THE 35% REQUIREMENT NOW?

>> YOU ADOPTED THE CRRY-FUND BALANCE LAST YEAR OF 35%.

AS YOU SAW IN THE FIRST SLIDE WE WERE HIGHLY RELIANT UPON INCOME TAXES AND WANT SOME FUND BALANCES TO WHETHER SITUATIONS WHERE THERE'S STAGNANT OR DECREASING REVENUES.

WITH THAT WE'LL MOVE ON TO THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT FUND.

>> REGARDING THE PROJECTED SAVINGS FROM THE MOVE OF THE 9-1-1 CENTER, I'M HAVING TROUBLE FINDING WHERE IN THE BUDGET THAT

SHOWS UP. >> IT SHOWED UP N MULTIPLE LINES. I HAVE A BUDGET AS PRESENTED AND MAYBE WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN BENEFICIAL IF I SEND IT OUT HAS LINE BY LINE CHANGES AND IT IMPACTS THE PERSONNEL LINE AND

[00:55:05]

SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF ACCOUNTS IN THE 2030 DEPARTMENT AND THEN WE HAVE THE NEW DEPARTMENT WHERE THE COST IS OCCURRING DEPARTMENT

7,000. >> LET ME TRY ASKING THIS QUESTION. WITH BOTH THE 9-1-1 CENTER YOU MENTIONED THE CONSOLIDATED BUDGET AND WITH THE PARKS AND REC YOU TALKED ABOUT THE RESOLVING FUND BEING A FACTOR IN THE WAY IT'S PRESENTED. LASTLY, WHEN I ASKED ABOUT THE ESTIMATED 2019 EXPENDITURES NUMBER IN TOTAL AND GOING UP EXTRAORDINARY PART OF YOUR EXPLANATION MENTIONED REMOVING THE REVOLVING FUND AND WHY I DON'T UNDERSTAND SOME OF THESE THINGS IS BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT OCCURRING IN THE GENERAL FUND AND MOVING BETWEEN OTHER FUNDS AND I'M AFRAID THAT CREATES A DISTORTED PICTURE FOR ME. WE TALK ABOUT THE GENERAL FUND BUT A LOT OF THINGS HAVE IMPACT ON THE GENERAL FUND.

>> THAT'S A GREAT POINT. I'VE TRIED INCORPORATING STATEMENTS FOR THE BUDGET AWARD AND BECAUSE I THINK IT'S BENEFICIAL TO LOOK AT. BECAUSE WE REDUCE OUR TRANSFER TO THE POLICE PENSION FUND DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE SPENDING LESS ON POLICE PENSIONS. JUST BECAUSE WE'RE TRANSFERRING ON PARKS AND REC PROGRAMMING IT'S JUST OCCURRING THE DIFFERENT SPOT. WHAT I TRIED TO DO IN THIS BUDGET PARTICULARLY AND THERE'S ONE PAGE THERE ND I HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO PROVIDE IS BREAK IT BETWEEN OPERATIONS AN CAPITAL. OPERATIONAL FUNDS IS FROM GENERAL FUND TO SPECIAL PARKS FUND.

WHAT'S IT COST TO RUNG THE CITY ON A YEAR TO YEAR BASIS REGARDLESS OF THE FUND. THE POLICE PENSION FUND WE HAVE TO SPEND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER I TRANSFER $600,000 OR $60,000 AND THAT'S IN THE BUDGET DOCUMENT AND IT'S BENEFICIAL TO LOOK AT AND CAN PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION.

>> WHAT'S THE CONSOLIDATE AND EXPENSE NUMBERS PRESENTED?

I DID NOT SEE IT. >> PAGE 14.

>> IF I WOULD TRY TO PRESENT CONSOLIDATED NUMBERS FOR REVENUE AND EXPENSES TO MAKE IT EASIER TO SAY RATHER THAN FIXING ON SPECIAL FUND. THANK YOU.

>> >> ANY OTHER QUESTIONS BEFORE WE

MOVE ON TO THE CIP? >> THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT

[9.A.II. Proposed 2020-2024 Capital Improvements Program]

PROGRAM. >> WE PUT TOGETHER AN OVERVIEW AND THE BIG PICTURE IN THE CIP AND PLAN TO GO INTO MORE DETAIL OF THE FIRST YEAR 2020 HOWEVER HAPPY TO ANSWER QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE FIVE YEARS. THE PRACTICE IS EACH YEAR WE REVISIT THE CIP SO THE OUTER YEARS WILL BE REVISITED WHERE 2020 IS A MORE SET PROGRAM. SOMETIMES WE PUT STUFF IN THE OUT YEARS BECAUSE WE NEED TO PUT IT IN IF WE'RE FOR GRANT MONEY OR SPECIAL MONEY AND WE WOULDN'T NECESSARILY HAVE IT FUNDED BUT

[01:00:04]

WE'RE HOPING WE'LL GET FUNDED IN THE FUTURE.

AND WE WERE OUT FOR FIVE YEARS. THAT NEVER CREPT UP ND STILL

HAVEN'T BEEN FUNDING. >> EACH YEAR WE LOOK AT WHAT FUNDING IS AVAILABLE AND IMMEDIATE NEEDS.

SOMETIMES PROJECTS GET PUSHED FROM ONE YEAR TO ANOTHER AND IF YOU LOOK BACK THERE MAY BE PROJECT WERE NEVER COMPLETED AND LISTED. I WANT TO TOUCH BRIEFLY ON WHERE WE'RE AT WITH THE PPROVAL PROCESS FOR THE CIP.

AT THIS POINT WE'RE DISCUSSING THIS AS PART OF A WORKSHOP THIS EVENING ON THE CIP. ANY FOLLOW-UP OR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION YOU'D LIKE FROM US CAN BE PROVIDED NEXT MONTH AS A FOLLOW-UP AND THE CIP IS SLATED FOR ADOPTION BY CITY COUNCIL IN EARLY DECEMBER. TRENDS IN THE CIP.

IT'S FINANCIALLY STRAINED. WE HAVE SAID IT'S FINANCIALLY CONSTRAINED. IT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST CHALLENGING YEARS OF ALL THE YEARS SINCE I'VE BEEN WORKING ON MANAGING THE CIP OVERALL IN TRYING TO GET NUMBERS TO MATCH AND YOU CAN SEE WE DIDN'T ACTUALLY GET NUMBERS TO MATCH IN SEVERAL YEARS. THE REVENUE IS FLAT FROM 2017 TO 2020. YOU HEARD WHAT'S HAPPENING ON THE REVENUE SIDE BECAUSE THE KRIP -- CIP IS PRIMARILY SUPPORTED BY INCOME TAX AND THE OVERALL INCOME TAX IS AFFECTING THE CIP. THIS YEAR THE EXPENDITURE REQUESTS EXCEEDED AVAILABLE REVENUE IN EVERY YEAR OF THE CIP. IN PAST YEARS THE OUTER YEARS, THE FOURTH AND FIFTH YEAR, THAT HASN'T BEEN THE CASE AND WE'VE HAD SPACE TO MOVE THINGS. HOWEVER, THIS YEAR WE HAD TO MOVE THINGS OUT OF THE CIP BECAUSE OF THE REVENUES THAT WERE AVAILABLE. AFRLT THIS BEING A TIGHT AND FINANCIALLY CONSTRAINED CIP WE WERE FOCUSSED ON MAINTAINING THE EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE AND FEEL IT'S IMPORTANT TO KEEP UP WITH WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE AND CONSIDER THOSE NEEDS BEFORE WE CONSIDER BUILDING NEW INFRASTRUCTURE.

WE HAVE SLIDES AND DEBT LEVELS ARE INCREASING THROUGH THE FIVE-YEAR PROGRAM. WE HAVE 2020 IS A BIG YEAR FOR PROJECTS IN PARTICULAR. THEY'RE DRIVEN BY SEVERAL BIG PROJECTS SPECIFICALLY THE KENYAN BROOK PROJECT AND SEWER REHABILITATION. THERE'LL BE A MULTITUDE OF INVESTMENTS IN THE COMMUNITY BASED ON RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR SANITARY SEWER STUDIES. YOU HAVE NOTABLE DEMANDS WE NEED TO ADDRESS FOR OUR POLICE BUILDINGS SPECIFICALLY WITH OUR HVAC AND AIR QUALITY AND ROOF ASSOCIATED WITH THAT BUILDING AND MCCORD PARK IS CONTRIBUTING TO THE LARGER EXPENSES SHOWN IN THE YEAR. 2021 HAS SEWER REHABILITATION AND WE HAVE UPTICK IN THE LAST YEAR WITH EQUIPMENT WAS WE'RE SCHEDULED TO PURCHASE A FIRE ENGINE AND FIRE EQUIPMENT IS NOT INEXPENSIVE. YOU'LL SEE SLIDES WITH NUMBERS ACROSS THE TOP AND GRAPH ON THE BOTTOM.

IT'S TRY TO FACILITATE HOW PEOPLE LIKE TO RECEIVE THEIR INFORMATION. I TEND TO FOCUS ON THE TREND LINE AND GRAPH. THIS SHOWS OUR CITY SHARE OF ALL OF OUR EXPENDITURES AND HOW MUCH WE'RE ABLE TO LEVERAGE OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY. WE'RE ABLE TO BRING IN MONEY IN 2021 WE HAVE TO HELP FUND THE IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT.

>> WHAT ARE OTHER SOURCES? >> IT'S REFLECTING $20 MILLION FROM MCCORD PARK FROM AN OUTSIDE SOURCE.

WE HAVE NOT IDENTIFIED THAT YET BUT WILL BE PURSUING FUNDING THROUGH GRANT FUNDS OR OTHER ALLOCATION.

>> CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT. >> THE STATE CAPITAL PROGRAM AND THEN IN 2021 IT'S REFLECTING LICENSE TAX MONEY TO ELP WITH

[01:05:08]

MATERIAL IMPROVEMENTS. INCOME TAX IS A SIGNIFICANT REVENUE SOURCE. WE SHOW ALL REVENUE SOURCES.

AND YOU HAVE DEBT PROCEEDS. THESE ARE TREND LINES AND CHARTS. WE HAVE TWO YEARS WHERE WE HAVE DEBT PROCEEDS COMING IN OTHERWISE OUR INCOME AX REVENUE IS THE OTHER MAJOR FUNDING SOURCE AND THEN FOR MINOR FUNDING SOURCES FROM REVENUE WE GET A LITTLE BIT AS MENTIONED THE MUNICIPAL MOTOR VEHICLE LICENSE TAX HELPS SUPPORT THE STREET PROGRAM AND WHEN THERE'S ENOUGH TO PAY FOR MATERIAL IMPROVEMENTS WE'RE ABLE TO PULL FROM THAT FUND AND THEN WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF OTHER MISCELLANEOUS REVENUE THAT COMES IN ABOUT $50,000 A YEAR THERE. SO SHIFTING TO EXPENDITURES.

YOU CAN SEE THIS IS LOOKING AT ALL EXPENDITURES ACROSS THE FIVE YEARS OF THE PROPOSED CIP. OUR LARGEST CATEGORY IN THE PROJECTS E'RE SPENDING 56% OF ALL OF OUR FUNDS ON PROJECTS SECOND LARGEST IS DEBT WITH 60% GOING EQUIPMENT AND A SMALL AMOUNT GOING TO ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS.

THOSE ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS ARE THE FEES CHARGED TO COLLECT INCOME TAX AND INSURANCE COST ASSOCIATED WITH OUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS AND LEGAL SERVICES AND SO FORTH BUT THEY'RE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE ITEMS BEING CONSTRUCTED OR PURCHASED THROUGH THE CIP. THESE SHOW TREND LINES ACROSS THE FIVE YEARS WITH ALL COSTS INCLUDED.

YOU CAN SEE THE SPIKE IN PROJECTS IN THE FIRST FEW YEARS WHERE WE HAVE SIGNIFICANT PROJECTS SCHEDULED FOR CONSTRUCTION AND THEN LEVEL OUT IN THE OUTER YEARS.

THE GREEN LINE OF DEBT LEASE PAYMENTS AS SHOWN THE SECOND LARGEST EXPENDITURE IS TRENDING UP.

WE AVE ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES FLAT AND EQUIPMENT SHOWN IN RED.

LOOKING AT REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES THE LINES GO UP AND DOWN PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH BONDING.

WHEN WE ISSUE BONDS WE HAVE REVENUE COMING IN AND THOSE ARE PEAKS ON THE BLUE LINE AND WHEN WE CONSTRUCT THEM FROM BONDS YOU SEE THEM PLAY OUT. SOMETIMES THE EXPENDITURE S ARE

SPREAD OVER A COUPLE OF YEARS. >> WE'VE HAD A TARGET OF 100 FUND BALANCE IN THE CRP ALLOW FORG CASH FLOW THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. BECAUSE INCOME TAX COMES IN IT ALLOWS US TO START ON PROJECTS OR EQUIPMENT PURCHASES AND ALLOWS US TO PROVIDE SHORT-TERM TEMPORARY FINANCING UNTIL WE GET TO THE POINT FOR ISSUING OF BONDS.

IT GIVES US THE ABILITY TO INVEST IN OPPORTUNITIES HAT ARISE IT ALSO GIVES THE ABILITY TO RESPOND TO EMERGENCIES.

AND WE HAD THE CULVERT AND WE HAD TO CONSTRUCT A PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH THAT. HAVING A HEALTHY FUND BALANCE ALLOWS TO US DO ALL THOSE THINGS.

WE'RE NOT CURRENTLY MEETING THAT TARGET.

WE HAVEN'T MET THAT ARGET SEVERAL YEARS BUT SEEM TO GET FURTHER AWAY. THE NEXT SLIDE IS OND REVENUES AND BECAUSE THEY SPIKE IT CAN BE HARD TO SEE THE OVERHAVE ALL TREND IN THE CIP FUND. THIS LOOKS FROM A CASH PERSPECTIVE WHAT WE'RE PAYING CASH FOR.

AND PROJECTS GO DOWN BECAUSE SOME OF OUR LARGEST PROJECTS ARE FUNDED BY BONDS. WHEN YOU PULL OUT BONDED PROJECTS AND REVENUE, YOU SEE PROJECTS FULFILL A SMALLER PERCENTAGE OF THE OVERALL EXPENDITURES.

[01:10:16]

AND THIS IS LEVELED OUT MORE SINCE WE DON'T HAVE THE SPIKES INVOLVED WITH THE BONDING. THIS SHOWS REVENUE TO EXPENDITURES. YOU CAN SEE THE LINES ARE PRETTY CLOSE. WE'RE SPENDING MORE THAN WE'RE BR BRINGING IN IN THE FIRST COUPLE YEARS OF THE CIP. THIS SHOWS THE FUND BALANCE AND WE'RE HOVERING IN THE 50% TO 60% RANGE OF OUR PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED TARGET. NEXT I'D LIKE TO TALK ABOUT CITY COUNCIL PRIORITIES. YOU ESTABLISHED PRIORITIES IN AREAS YOU WANTED US TO FOCUS ON. FIRST, WILSON BRIDGE CORRIDOR.

WE HAVE A COUPLE PROJECTS THAT RELATE TO THAT AREA.

WE HAVE' MCCORD PARK IMPROVEMENTS SLATED FOR 2020 AND ARTERIAL IMPROVEMENT FOR WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD.

AND MANY ACTIVITIES WILL LIKELY BE SEEN IN THE OPERATING BUDGET.

HOWEVER, I DID INCLUDE THE TWO PROJECTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE GRISWALD CENTER SINCE IT FOCUSES ON OLDER ADULTS AND PROVIDING INVESTMENT AND EQUIPMENT AND REPLACEMENT OF WINDOWS.

I MENTIONED MCCORD PARK. THERE'S PARTIAL FUNDING HERE.

IN ORDER TO FULLY FUND THE PROJECT AS PROPOSED AT $2.8 MILLION WE WOULD NEED TO FIND $1 MILLION OF EXTERNAL FUNDING OR RE-EVALUATE WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH THE PROJECT.

UPDATED OFFICE BUILDINGS. THE OPERATING BUDGET SIDE. ON - WE DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IN THE CIP THAT TALKS ABOUT PRIORITY.

ON THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY SIDE WE HAVE CONTINUED INVESTMENTS IN OUR MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS ON HVAC AND LIGHTING TO ENHANCE ENERGY EFFICIENCY. IN 2020 AND 2021 WE HAVE 147B$,000 EACH YEAR -- $100,000 EACH YEAR AND IN 2022 IT INCREASES TO $250,000 A YEAR. FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING, THAT GOES TO THE URRENT OPERATING BUDGET.

WE'RE NOT SEEING ANY OF THAT IN THE CIP.

OUR DEBT LEVELS ARE INCREASING AND WILL CONTINUE TO THROUGH THE PROPOSED CIP. I FOUND THIS TO BE AN INTERESTING CHART. IT TIES TO A CHART IN OUR ANNUAL FINANCIAL TREND REPORT. I TOOK SOME OF THAT INFORMATION AND ADDED ON THE FIVE-YEAR TO THE PROPOSED CIP.

PRIOR TO 2000 THE CITY CARRIED VERY LITTLE DEBT AND IN THE EARLY 2000S THEY EXPAND THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND RENOVATED AN OFFICE BUILDING TO BE USED BY THE DIVISION OF POLICE AND YOU SEE THAT ISSUANCE IN THE EARLY 2000S.

SINCE THAT TIME WE'VE BEEN ISSUING DEBT MORE REGULARLY TO FUND DEBT AND YOU SEE THE INCREASE IN THE LINE AND AS WE PAY OFF DEBT IT DECREASES BUT YOU CAN SEE WE'RE ON AN UPWARD TREND AND HAVE TWO DEBT ISSUANCES IN THE PROPOSED CIP.

>> ARE THOSE ACTUAL DOLLARS NOT ADJUSTED FOR INFLATION.

>> WE MAY NEED TO ASK MR. BARTER YES, ACTUAL DOLLARS.

IN 2024 IT'S PROJECTED TO BE $1200 CALLED YOU AT SOME FUTURE DATE GIVE ME A SENSE WHAT THAT MEANS IN INFLATION ADJUSTED? IS THAT GOING UP? I'D APPRECIATE THAT.

THANK YOU. >> SO IN THE CIP WE HAVE EXISTING DEBT. I DIDN'T CREATE SLIDES BUT I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT NEW DEBT 3 WE'RE PLANNING THIS YEAR OR WITH

[01:15:03]

THE PROPOSED CIP. THIS SLIDE REFERENCES DEBT WE PLAN TO TAKE ON IN 2019. WE HAVE OUR CURRENT CIP NOTED WE WERE PURCHASING PUBLIC SAFETY RADIOS AND OTHER CITY RADIOS.

SO YOU SEE WE HAVE A LEASE FOR THOSE RADIOS AND THE ANNUAL PAYMENT AMOUNT LISTED THERE. THE TOP ITEM IS FOR THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY WE ARE STARTING PRELIMINARY WORK ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE PROJECT AND WILL BE IN FULL-BLOWN CONSTRUCTION IN THE NEXT TWO TO THREE YEARS.

WE'RE GOING HAVE EXPENSES GOING OUT ON THAT PROJECT IN THE IMMEDIATE TIME FRAME. HOWEVER, OUR FUNDS ARE NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL 2023 TO 2025. SO AS A RESULT WE HAVE APPLIED TO STATE INFRASTRUCTURE BANK OR SHORT-TERM FINANCING TO FILL THE GAP WHEN EXPENSES ARE OCCURRING AND FEDERAL FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WILL IT STILL MOVE FORWARD IN 2020.

>> THE BANK LONE IS NOT -- LOAN IS A SHORT-TERM LOAN.

HOPEFULLY NOT MORE THAN FOUR OR FIVE YEARS AND THE LOANS WILL PAY OFF THE PRINCIPLE. WE'RE IN DISCUSSION WITH THE OHIO PLANNING COMMISSION WHETHER WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF IT OR THEY'LL BE ABLE TO COVER SOME OF THE INTEREST COSTS ALSO.

IF WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF IT WE EXPECT THAT TO BE IN THE RANGE OF $300,000 TO $350,000 FOR INTEREST COSTS BUT SHORT-TERM A FEW YEARS. THIS LOAN IS NOT SHOWING UP ON THE DEBT CALCULATIONS OR CHARTS SHOWN.

CH THEY'RE CHARGING 3%.

IT'S A HIGHER RATE THAN WHAT WE RECENTLY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BORROW BUT HAS LOWER ISSUANCE COSTS AND THERE'S BENEFITS

>> SO THEN LONG-TERM DEBT, WHAT IS OUR DEFINITION.

WHAT IS LONG TERM? >> THE DEBT IN THE CHARTS IS WHERE WE PAID PRINCIPLE AND INTEREST.

WE COULD ADD THE INTEREST COSTS BUT WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WILL

BE YET. >> THIS SAY LIST OF PROJECTS TO BE FUNDED THROUGH DEBT IN THE PROPOSED CIP.

THERE'S NINE PROJECTS PLUS A FIRE ENGINE TOTALLING A LITTLE

UNDER $12 MILLION. >> TO THE HVAC IS THE ENERGY

PLAN. >> A PORTION IS ENERGY EFFICIENCY HOWEVER THE REST OF THE PROJECT IS TO ADDRESS THE AIR QUALITY ISSUES WE HAVE DETERMINED EXIST IN THE

BUILDING. >> SO STEPPING BACK WITH THE ABM PRAX, THE EXPENDITURES THAT WE HAVE PLANNED FOR REPAIRS AND

REPLACEMENTS, RATHER. >> FOR?

>> ABM. >> IN THE PROPOSED CIP WE HAVE ENERGY EFFICIENCY ENHANCEMENT SCHEDULED FO FOR THE REST -- FOR THE REST OF THE CITY BUILDINGS IN THE GRISWALD CENTER IN THE

AMOUNT OF $950,000. >> I KNOW FOR THE LAST SLICE WE DIDN'T LOOK INTO OR DIDN'T APPLY FOR HE STATE ENERGY OAN FUND.

ARE WE LOOKING AT THAT FOR THE UPCOMING EXPENSES FOR THE VAC

REPLACEMENT SPECIFICALLY? >> WE'LL LOOK AT ALL POTENTIAL SOURCES OF FUNDING FOR THESE. I HAVEN'T SPECIFICALLY LOOKED AT

THAT FOR 2021. >> WE COMMUNICATED WHERE WE HAD A POSITION THAT WE WOULD PAY FOR OUT OF POCKET AND TAKE THE OPERATING EXPENSES AND SAVINGS AS A COST SAVINGS OVER TIME BUT NOW IT SEEMS LIKE IT MAY MAKE SENSE TO GET A LOAN ROM THE

STATE. >> SO WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE

[01:20:06]

CIP AND LATER ON WE'LL TALK ABOUT DOCUMENTS WE PUT AT YOUR PLACE WE'VE MOVED THE ENERGY CONSERVATION IMPROVEMENT SCHEDULED FOR 2020 FOR THE BUILDINGS THAT WEREN'T THE POLICE BUILDINGS THAT WE WERE GOING DO ORIGINALLY THE POLICE BUILDING AND THE REMAINDER OF THE BUILDINGS THAT WEREN'T DONE WITH THE PROJECT THIS YEAR AND SO WE'RE MOVING THAT TO 2021 GIVEN OUR FINANCIAL SITUATION AND MOVED IT TO BONDING NOW IT MAY MAKE MORE SENSE TO LOOK AT OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR FINANCING. THE POLICE BUILDING IS MORE EMERGENT BECAUSE NOT ONLY DO WE WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY FOR ENERGY SAVINGS BUT HAVE AIR QUALITY ISSUES WE COMMITTED TO ADDRESS. THAT PROJECT ND MR. WITE IS LEADING THAT. WE HAVE A CONSULTANT DESIGNING THAT FIX NOW. BECAUSE THAT BUILDING BECAUSE THAT PROJECT WILL REQUIRE TOUCHING A LOT OF THE ROOF UNITS AS WELL AS NEW PENETRATIONS, WE HAD A ROOF REPAIR OR THE FLAT PORTION OF THE ROOF NOT THE OTHER PORTIONS OF THE ROOF SCHEDULED A FEW YEARS OUT THAT WE'RE GOING TO MOVE UP BECAUSE IT MAKES MORE SENSE TO DO IT ALL AT ONCE AND IT'S ALSO NEEDED.

IT PROBABLY NEEDED TO BE MOVED UP ANYWAY IN CONSULTATION WITH OUR ROOF CONSULTANT. LAST YEAR'S CIP DID NOT REFLECT THE EXTENT OF IMPROVEMENTS TO THAT BUILDING THAT THIS YEAR'S DOES BUT I THINK YOU UNDERSTAND THE URGENCY AND MPORTANCE OF IT. KEEP IN MIND AS WELL THE PACE FUNDING THAT IS AVAILABLE WOULD COVER THOSE TYPES OF ENVELOPE

PROJECTS. >> I'LL NOTE THE FIRST ROUND ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECT ROLLED INTO THE TEMPORARY NOTES ROLLED INTO LONG-TERM BONDS AND ROLLED INTO OTHER ISSUANCES WE WERE ALREADY DOING. THAT'S HOW WE FINANCED THOSE.

>> WE WERE BOTH INVOLVED IN THE ENERGY SPECIAL IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT AND THAT MAY BE AN OPTION FOR SOME OF THE PROJECTS AND JUST A GENERAL EDITORIAL COMMENT.

LOOK LISTENING O ALL OF WHAT WE COVERED IN THE LAST BIT AND INCOME IS DOWN, FUNDS ARE UP, IT'S BEING SLOWLY DEPLETE.

WE'RE TAKING ON A LOT OF PROJECTS AND THE A DON'T IS TROUBLING ME. IT'S A DISCOMFORT LEVEL ON MY OWN PART. IN MY HOUSE IF WE'RE DOWN IN INCOME AND HAVE EXPENSES WE SCALE BACK OR DELAY PROJECTS.

WATER LINES, LEAKING ROOFS, THOSE ARE THINGS YOU DON'T PLAY BUT THE AMOUNT OF WE'RE LOOKING AT TAKING ON AND THE COST OF SERVICE AND THE PIECE OF THE PIE AND THERE'S POLICE RADIOS AND SUCH IN THERE OO BUT THE AMOUNT OF DEBT WE'RE TAKING ON AT THIS POINT IN TIME I'M STRUGGLING MR. MYERS, YOU'RE SMILING.

>> THAT'S A DRUM WE BEAT WITH PRESIDENT MICHAELS BECAUSE WE

HAD ZERO. >> IT'S VARY AND THE STAFF WRESTLED WITH THE NUMBERS. WE HAD A SLIDE WE WERE DOING TO TALK MORE ABOUT AND IF CONSEQUENCE WANTS TO MAKE OTHER ORE MOVES WE'RE OPEN TO THAT BECAUSE IT WAS NOT AN EASY PROCESS AND SAYING CAN WE LIVE WITHOUT THE UMBERS AND WE FINALLY GOT TO THE POINT WHERE WE FELT WE COULD MAKE IT.

>> 'M NOT CRITICIZING BUT I WANT TO THROW THE QUESTION OUT THERE ARE THERE THINGS WE NEED TO REWORK.

>> WITH NEED HEALTH AND SAFETY AND FROM OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY IS MAINTAINING THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF THE COMMUNITY.

YOU'RE LOOKING AT SANITARY SEWER.

[01:25:06]

WE HAVE HEALTH AND SAFETY WHERE IT'S HARD TO SAY GEE, WE CAN'T

DO THIS. >> AS WE GET INTO THESE, MR. FOUST, WE DO A SIMPLE ANALYSIS.

WE CALL IT OUR MUST DO, SHOULD DO.

GENERALLY WE TRY TO FOCUS ON THE MUST-DOS AND EVEN SOME OF THE MUS MUST-DOS WE SHIFT FROM YEAR TO YEAR AND THINGS LIKE THAT. WE ALSO FOCUS ON COUNCIL PRIORITIES. HOW THAT MANIFESTS ITSELF IN 3 THIS CIP IS TRYING TO MAINTAIN COUNCIL PRIORITIES OR PREVIOUSLY ADOPTED PROGRAMS AT LEVELS WE PRESENTED BEFORE.

WE LEFT THOSE RELATIVELY UNTOUCHED.

YOU'RE RIGHT, WE'RE NOT COMFORTABLE EITHER AND OU'LL HEAR IT LATER IN THIS PRESENTATION AND WE HAD SOME NEW THINGS POP UP THAT ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN ORIGINALLY PROJECTED LIKE THE IMPROVEMENT TO POLICE BUILDING WE THINK ARE A MUST DO AND THINGSY NEED TO TALK MORE ABOUT AND ONE IS HUNTLEY I AM -- IMPROVEMENTS AT 420 WITH STORM WATER BENEFITS AS A RESULT OF A HYDROLOGY STUDY MR. WHITE COMMISSIONED AND WE HAVE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM BUT HAVEN'T FULLY EVALUATED AND DISTRIBUTED.

THAT'S A NEW ONE TOO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IF THERE'S NOTHING ELSE WE'LL KEEP MOVING BECAUSE THE COMING SLIDES

WILL GIVE US ORE DEPTH. >> THE NEXT FEW SLIDES FOCUS ON THE 2020 INVESTMENTS. THE SEE WA HAS BEEN DELAYED AND HASN'T YESTERDAY BEEN CONSTRUCTED.

WE'RE HOPEFUL IN 2020 CONSTRUCTION WILL START AND ADDITIONAL SEWER REPAIRS. THE SANITARY SEWER REPAIR AND SANITATION IF WE CAN STAY ON THE SCHEDULE IT'S THE FINAL YEARS OF FUNDING RELATED AND ASSOCIATED WITH ALL THE STUDIES AND OUR FINDINGS AND ORDERS WITH THE OHIO EPA.

>> >> WE HAVE TO BE IN COMPLIANCE

BY 2028. >> YES.

WE'RE CURRENTLY ON TRACK FOR THAT.

COMMUNITY CENTER POOLS RESURFACING IS NEW.

THE SURFACE IS ROUGH AND CROUPE -- CRUMBLING AND WE HAVE DETERMINED A RUN IS BADLY CORRODED AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AND THAT'S ALSO A NEW ITEM IN THE CIP.

CONTINUING ON THE LIST, WE HAVE SEVERAL NEW PROJECTS THAT WEREN'T IN THE PREVIOUS CIP. WE HAVE THE FIRE STATION BATHROOM AND SHOWER INNOVATION ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE FIRE STATION. THIS BATHROOM HAS GIVEN US ISSUES. IT DOESN'T DRAIN PROPERLY AND HAD AMAGE WITH THE RAINING ROOM AND TECHNOLOGY IN THE TRAINING ROOM. THAT'S BEEN ADDED INTO HE CIP BECAUSE OF THE ISSUES WE'VE BEEN EXPERIENCING THERE.

WE'VE MENTION THE POLICE BUILDING WORK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. MR. GREESON MENTIONED THE RESTROOM STREAMS AND TIES TO THE EVALUATION OF THE RUSH RUN.

THE STREET AND SIDEWALK IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM HAS HELD FLAT AT $900,000 THE WHOLE TIME WITH THE CITY.

IT'S NOT BEEN INCREASING AND WE'RE ALWAYS WATCHING THAT BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS ALWAYS TIGHT AND GETS TIGHTER EVERY YEAR AS THE FUNDING DOESN'T INCREASE BUT THE COSTS INCREASE ASSOCIATED ITH STRATEGIES WORKING ON OUR STREETS.

THAT'S ONE THAT WE'VE HELD FLAT YET AGAIN BUT WE ARE WATCHING

THAT. >> DOES THAT LINE ITEM INCLUDE EXISTENCE OF EXISTING SIDEWALKS. IT DOESN'T INCLUDE ANY OF THE EXPANSION OF SIDEWALKS IN WORTHINGTON.

IS THAT CORRECT? >> CORRECT.

WHEN WE IDENTIFY A STREET THAT WILL BE PART OF THE PROGRAM WE INSPECT THE SIDEWALKS AND SIDEW

[01:30:03]

SIDEWALKSES -- SIDEWALKS THAT HAVE BEEN DISPLACED BUT IT'S NOT NEW EXPANSION OF SIDEWALK IN THE CITY.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE MCCORD PARK RENOVATION.

WE IS THE PLAYGROUND IDENTIFIED BY STAFF AS A PLAYGROUND MOST IN NEED REF PLACEMENT. THAT'S SLATED IN 2020.

WE MENTIONED WE EPT THE BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN IMPROVEMENTS AS IDENTIFIED AND WE HAVE THE FINAL YEARS OF THE SIGNAGE PROGRAM.

>> HOW MANY PLAYGROUNDS DO WE HAVE AND HOW OFTEN DO WE TRY TO

REPLACEMENT. >> I'LL LET HIM ANSWER THE PLAYGROUNDS IN THE AND WE WERE DOING A PLAYGROUND A YEAR AND BECAUSE OF THE CONSTRAINTS WE CHANGED T TO ONE EVERY OTHER YEAR WHICH PUSHED OUT THE REPLACEMENT OF SEVERAL PLAYGROUNDS PARKS AND RECREATION REQUESTS.

>> WE CURRENTLY HAVE 14 PLAY GROUNDS IN OUR PARKS.

WE LOSE SURFACING WHERE WE HAVE RUBBER SURFACING IT STARTS TO NOT MEDE STANDARDS -- MEET STANDARDS AND DOESN'T OUTLAST THE EQUIPMENT AND SOMETIMES THE EQUIPMENT DOESN'T OUTLAST THE SURFACING. WE HAVE PLATFORMS AND SOME OTHER THINGS STARTING TO GIVE WAY WE HAD DONE TWO PLAY GROUNDS BECAUSE OF HAVING TO MOVE THE CIP AROUND AND GOT BEHIND IS WHY WE ASKED ONE OR EACH OF THE YEAR.

WE'RE SCHEDULED FOR ONE EVERY OTHER YEAR IF YOU COULD START TO SPACE THEM OUT APPROPRIATELY WOULD BE THE RIGHT PACE.

>> DOES THE PLACEMENT INCLUDE WORK ON THE SHELTER HOUSE?

>> IT DOES NOT. >> WE HAVE AN ASSET -- ASSESSMENT ON HE WEST END TO CONSIDERING THE REDESIGN FOR THAT. I BELIEVE IT'S IN 2022 OR 2023.

I HAVE A QUESTION FOR MCCORD PARK.

IS ANY OF THE $1.8 MILLION FOR REQUIRED MAINTENANCE R IS ALL

THAT $1.8 DISCRETIONARY? >> THAT'S A TOUGH QUESTION.

IF YOU RECALL HE MCCORD PARK CONCEPT PLAN WHICH WHAT BROUGHT TO YOU LAST YEAR AND THE 2$2.8 MILLION IS THE PROBABLE COST AND WHAT WE BUILT THE $1.8 MILLION AND IDEALLY FIND ANOTHER MILLION. WE'RE NOW IN THE MORE DETAILED DESIGN WHICH WILL MIKE THE NUMBERS MORE HARD AND FAST AND ABUT TO US LOOK AT THINGS. -- ALLOW US TO LOOK AT THINGS.

FOR EXAMPLE, YOU CAN BUILD A RESTROOM/STORAGE BUILDING AND COULD VARY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AS WITH A PLAYGROUND.

TO GET BACK TO YOUR QUESTION, AND THE NUMBER IN THE ESTIMATION WAS AROUND 250,000 WHEN THEY GAVE THEIR OPINION OF PROBABLE

COST. >> IS THAT THE PLAYGROUND BEHIND

THE REC CENTER? >> THE PLAYGROUND OUT IN THE

PARK >> THAT PLAYGROUND IS NEAR THE END OF ITS LIFE. IT'S A SURFACING ISSUE PRIMARILY. THE HARD OF THE SURFACE IT'S PULLING FROM THE EDGES. SO IT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED.

THE REST IS JUST PROBABLY A LITTLE MORE OF YOUR STANDARD AND THE REST ROOMS AND THE BALL FIELD AND THE RECONFIGURATION OF WHEN THE TIME'S APPROPRIATE.H I- THERE'S NOTHING THAT S GOING TO CAUSE US TO NOT USE IT OR SHUT IT DOWN TO YOUR QUESTION OTHER THAN THE PLAYGROUND IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

[01:35:01]

>> SWITCHING TO THE EQUIPMENT SCHEDULED FOR 2020 I ONLY HAVE A FEW ITEM N HESE SLIDES I WANT TO TOUCH ON.

THE SELF-CONTAINED APPARATUS FOR EMS WE'RE PURSUING A GRANT AND HOPEFULLY IT WOULD FUND A LARGE PORTION OF THIS AMOUNT.

IF WE ARE NOT SUCCESS THE APPARATUS IS AT THE END OF ITS LIFE AND SO IT'S PROGRAMMED INTO 2020.

ON THE SCREEN, I WOULD NOTE THE FURNITURE IS TIED TO THE AIR QUALITY ISSUES IN FURNITURE THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED AND ALSO I'LL TOUCHED ON THE RECORDS MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE FOR POLICE.

THAT'S AT THEN OF ITS LIFE TOO. IT'S NO LONGER BEING MAINTAINED AND SUPPORTED. AND SO WE WILL NEED TO REPLACE THAT. THAT'S THE SOFTWARE THAT TRACKS THE ACTIVITY AND RECORDS FOR THE POLICE DIVISION ITSELF.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR TO NOTE ON THIS SLIDE BUT CAN CERTAINLY ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY F THE EQUIPMENT IF YOU HAVE THEM. THIS TOUCHES ON UNCERTAINTIES.

ITEMS THAT WEREN'T INCORPORATED KNEE CIP -- INTO THE CIP.

WE TOUCHED ON THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY PROJECT SINCE WE DON'T KNOW WHAT OUR INTEREST COSTS WILL BE.

SPECIFICALLY THAT HASN'T BEEN INCORPORATED IN HERE.

THIS PROPOSED CIP DOES NOT HAVE AN ALLOCATION FOR SWIMMING.

CITY COUNCIL HEARD ABOUT THAT LAST WEEK AND WE EXPECT IT WILL BE A DISCUSSION AND THE CIP WILL NEED TO BE AMENDED IN SOME WAY TO ADDRESS WHAT CITY COUNCIL WOULD LIKE TO DO RELATED TO SWIMMING'S REQUEST FOR FUNDING. WE MENTIONED MCCORD PARK SO WE NEED TO FIND FUND ORG SCALE BACK AND WE'RE -- FUNDING OR SCALING BACK AND WE'RE ASSESSING THE WATER LINE AND THAT MAY RESULT IN CHANGES IN THE FUTURE TO WHAT'S PROGRAMMED IN THE CIP.

FOR WATER LINES WE HAVE FOUR YEARS OF AN ANNUAL ALLOCATION OF $500,000 THAT'S A PLACE HOLDER AS WE GET RECOMMENDATIONS AROUND SPECIFIC PROJECTS. WE EXPECT THAT TO SHIFT TO SPECIFIC PROJECT LISTINGS AND MAY NEED TO BE CONSOLIDATED AND YOU MAY NEED $1.1 MILLION ONE YEAR AND SKIP A YEAR TO WORK ON THE NEXT PROJECT BUT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE PLACE HOLDERS IN THERE.

>> AFTER OUR MEETING WITH THE SCHOOL BOARD, I DO WANT TO COMMON IT COMES TIME PROPOSE TO LOOKING AT HAVING SOME FUNDING AVAILABLE FROM MATCHING GRANTS TO MAKE SURE WE SHORE UP THE INFRASTRUCTURE. I THINK WE HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY FOR IT AND IT'S SIMILAR TO THE IMMEDIATE NEEDS OF THE MCCORD CULVERT AND STUFF THAT NEEDED IMMEDIATE FUNDING THAT WE FOUND BUT ALSO LOOKING INTO THE OTHER OPPORTUNITIES FOR FUNDING INCLUDING THE JOINT RECREATION DISTRICT BUT I UNDERSTAND WE'LL TALK ABOUT IT AT A LATER DATE. I DEFINITELY WANT TO SEE IF KE WE CAN PROVIDE FUNDING NOR POOL. -- FOR THE POOL.

>> WILL THERE BE A FORMAL PRESENTATION SOME TIME AFTER THE

FIRST OF THE YEAR ON THAT? >> I'LL BE SCHEDULING MEETINGS IN THE COMING WEEKS WITH REPRESENTATIVE OF SCHOOLS AND SWIM INC. AND I WOULD WANT A REPRESENTATIVE FROM COUNCIL TO BE THERE IF YOU FEEL THAT'S APPROPRIATE.

OR SOMEBODY DESIRES TO JUMP IN, SHOULD SAY., OR DIVE IN, I - THE AND I THINK THE PURPOSE OF THOSE ARE TWOFOLD ONE TO BUILD OUT AND FURTHER ANALYZE THEM. FOR INSTANCE ONE OPTION TALKS ABOUT A GRANT TO SWIM INC. AND A FUNDING WITH THE PAYMENT OF DEBT SERVICE. WELL, WE NEED MR. BARTER AND HIS TEAM ARE TASKED WITH DIGGING INTO THEIR FINANCES TO EXPLORE

OUR COMFORT LEVEL WITH THEIR ABILITY TO REPAY.

HOW MUCH. THAT WOULD BE THE TYPE OF DUE DILIGENCE WE'LL DO TO FRAME THOSE AND BUILD OUT THE OPENINGS AT THE JOINT MEETING AND WE MAY DEVELOP ANOTHER OPTION OR TWO BECAUSE THERE'S CERTAINLY SOME OTHER IDEAS PEOPLE CAN COME UP WITH. THE SECOND PERSON AND PREPARE FOR A SECOND MEETING AND WE WANTED COMMUNITY FEEDBACK AND WE'RE EXPLORING TRYING TO SCHEDULE A MEETING AT THE SCHOOL AUDITORIUM IN ARLY DECEMBER TO GO OVER FURTHER DEVELOPED OPTIONS AND GET THE PUBLIC'S FEEDBACK.

I'D LIKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH EACH OF YOU ABOUT YOUR IDEAS. AND SEE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT IT AND WE'LL BRING THIS ALL BACK FOR CONVERSATION WITH YOU.

THE CHALLENGE WITH IT IS HOW DOES ALL THAT SYNC UP WITH THE ADOPTION OF OUR CIP. WELL, NOT PERFECTLY.

WE'RE GOING HAVE TO POTENTIALLY DEMONSTRATE FLEXIBILITY AND THAT'S HOW THE CONVERSATION EVOLVED.

CONTINGENCY PLAN FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM.

>> AND NOT TO STEAL MR. DOROTHY'S THUNDER BUT I'D OFFER MYSELF UP TO BE PART OF THE CONVERSATION ASSUMING I'M STILL HERE, FLIP A COIN ON THAT ONE AND I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY ELSE HEARD THIS BUT I THOUGHT THE SUPERINTENDENT SAID THE LAND USE PLAN WOULD BE READY IN EIGHT MONTHS WHICH COINCIDES WITH THE EXPIRATION OF THE MILLION DOLLARS.

I THINK TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE. IF I HEARD THAT CORRECTLY, THAT DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN'T HAPPEN WOUJ -- WITHOUT OWNERSHIP OR WHAT OCCURS ON THE LAND.

>> AT MINIMUM, IF THEY WANT TO DRAW DOWN THE MILLION DOLLARS THEY NEED A LEASE AMENDMENT. I'M NOT AWARE OF OBSTACLES TO

THE LEASE AMENDMENT. >> I HEARD THE SCHOOL EDGING.

>> IF SOMEBODY'S GOING GET IT DONE IT HAS TO BE US.

THEY'LL HAVE TO TAKE THE LEAD ON THE PROJECT.

>> I CONCUR. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: LET'S FINISH OFF THE TOPIC TO MOVE TO ANOTHER.

MR. FOUST WANTED TO SAY SOMETHING AND DID ANYBODY ELSE? MS. KOWALCZYK PREVIOUSLY VOLUNTEERED ALSO.

OKAY. MOVING ALONG.

>> WE HAVE TWO MORE SLIDES HERE. WE'RE COMING UP ON THE END.

SO THIS SLIDE ILLUSTRATES THE CONSTRAINED FUNDING AND HIGHLIGHTING HOW IT IMPACT THE CIP.

OUR REQUEST FOR FUNDING ONCE ALL THE DEPARTMENTS SUBMITTED REQUESTS FOR ITEMS THEY FELT NEEDED TO BE FUND AND WHAT TIME FRAME WITHIN THE FIVE YEARS. THE FUNDING REQUESTS EXCEEDED REVENUE AVAILABLE BY $5.5 MILLION.

WE HAD TO MAKE A LOT OF CHANGES AND MOVEMENTS AROUND.

ONE THING WE DID WAS ADDED ITEMS OF BONDING.

THE $7.4 MILLION NUMBER IS THE AMOUNT OF BONDING OVER AND ABOVE WHAT WAS PROJECTED THE 2019 TO 2023 CIP.

AS A WHOLE IT HAS $12 MILLION COMING IN THAT'S $4.7 MILLION MORE THAN WHAT WE ANTICIPATED A YEAR AGO WITHIN THE TIME FRAME.

WE ENDED UP MOVING AND DELAYING MANY PROJECTS.

MANY ITEMS OF EQUIPMENT. THIS IS WHERE I'LL OTE YOU HAVE SHEETS IN FRONT OF YOU, SPREAD SHEETS IN FRONT OF YOU THAT SHOW THE CIP CASH FLOW WHICH IS USUALLY AT THE END OF YOUR CIP.

THREES PRETTY COLORFUL -- THESE ARE PRETTY COLORFUL WORK SHEETS.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE HERD, ONE SAYS THE -- HEADER, ONE SAYS THE

[01:45:04]

PROPOSED 2024 IT SAY CHANGES FROM SUBMITTALS.

IT SHOWS IN RED EVERYTHING MOVED, DELAYED, ELIMINATED FROM THE DEPARTMENT'S REQUESTS FOR FUNDING.

SO IT WAS TOO MUCH TO PUT ON A SLIDE BUT THIS KIND OF THE WORKING DOCUMENT. THIS IS WHAT I ACTUALLY USE WHEN I'M GOING TO GET THE NUMBERS TO WORK AND TRACK WHAT I MOVED BUT SEE HOW THEY IMPACT THE BOTTOM LINE.

THAT'S WHAT THAT WORK SHEET SHOWS AND THE OTHER SHOWS THE CURRENT ADOPTED CIP FROM THE 2019 TO 2023 CIP AND IT ADDS MORE COLORS. THE BLUE IS FOR BONDING AND THE RED ARE ITEMS MOVED OR DELAYED, THE GREEN IS OUR NEW ITEM WEREN'T CONTEMPLATED OR INCLUDED IN THE 2019 TO 2023CIP AND THE GOLD ARE ITEMS THAT INCREASED BY MORE THAN INFLATION.

I CREATED THEM FOR MY OWN USE AND HOPEFULLY THEY DON'T

THOROUGHLY CONFUSE YOU. >> THIS IS PURPOSEFUL.

THEY'RE USUALLY INTERNAL WORKING DU DOCUMENTS TO HELP. MS. STEWART USES THEM TO TRACK BETWEEN MEETINGS AND THEY HELP EVERYBODY UNDERSTAND WHAT MOVES AROUND. WE WANT TO BE TRANSPARENT WITH YOU ABOUT THE JUDGMENTS MADE IN A CONSTRAINED YEAR.

IF YOU HAVE DIFFERENT JUDGMENTS AND IDEAS, WE WELCOME THEM.

WE'RE LOOKING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS BETWEEN NOW AND NOVEMBER WHEN WE TALK ABOUT THIS, FEEL FREE TO HELP CALL US AND HAVE US ASK QUESTION WHAT WE DID AND WHY WE DID IT.

>> SO $17 MILLION OF BOND >> NOT IN ADDITION.

IF YOU TAKE WHAT WE ANTICIPATING FOR THIS TIME FRAME THE 2020 TO 2023 TIME FRAME, WHAT WE ANTICIPATED LAST YEAR AND THE CIP DOPTED LAST YEAR, IT'S 4.7 MORE N BONDING THAN WE

ANTICIPATING A YEAR AGO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHAT DID WE PANTS PATE A YEAR AGO - ANTICIPATE A YEAR AGO?

>> THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 4.7 AND $12 MILLION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ONE OF MY CONCERNS IS ARE WE GOING TO BE ABLE TO CONTINUOUSLY DO THIS BONDING AND AY OFF THE BOND DEBT SERVICE AND HOW MUCH IS THAT GOING O BE COSTING US?

>> IF YOU GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, WE DON'T BELIEVE CURRENT REVENUES ARE SUFFICIENT AND ALL THE CONTINUING OUR LEVELS OF SERVICES AND INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORTS A LEVEL OF SERVICE WHICH SUPPORTS HE QUALITY OF LIFE.

AND TO RESPOND TO TO THE STRATEGIC OPPORTUNITIES OR NEEDS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OUTLINED IN MANY OF OUR LANS THAT ARE NEW INFRASTRUCTURE OR NEW THINGS. SO THE INCOME TAX IS IT THE NEW PRIMARY SOURCE OF REVENUE. IT'S NOT KEPT PACE WITH THE AMOUNTS WE NEED TO FUND ALL THESE THINGS.

AS A RESULT WE'VE INCREASED THE DEBT.

I THINK WE SHOULD EVALUATE. WE NEED TO EVALUATE THE EXPENDITURES AND WE WELCOME CONVERSATION ABOUT THESE PRIORITY THE JUDGMENT IN DEBT SERVICING AND MOVING THEM TO YEARS AND ULTIMATELY YOU HAVE TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH THE CAPITAL PLAN YOU ADOPT AND DECISIONS TO BE MADE MAYBE DIFFERENTLY THAN WHAT WE RECOMMENDED AND WE'RE OPEN TO THAT CONVERSATION BUT WE THINK IN THE COMING YEAR WE NEED TO BEGIN EVALUATING ADDITIONAL

[01:50:02]

REVENUE PPORTUNITIES. I THINK MANY CITIZENS WOULD AGREE THAT SOME F THE THINGS PARTICULARLY IN THE ESSENTIAL TO BASIC SERVICES AREA ARE WORTHWHILE LONG-TERM INVESTMENTS. THINGS LIKE INVESTMENT AND STORM WATER INFRASTRUCTURE AND MAKE SURE WE'RE IN THE BEHIND ON MAINTENANCE OF ROADWAYS. SO THERE ARE OPTIONS.

WE'RE CURRENTLY DOING A FEE EVALUATION THAT WE'LL BE TALKING TO YOU NEXT YEAR ABOUT IN THE PARK AND RECREATION AREA.

IT'S AIMED AT LOOKING AT WHETHER OUR FEES HAVE KEPT UP WITH AND ARE ALIGNED WITH BOTH MARKET COST RECOVERY AND THEN SUBSIDY RATES BECAUSE NOT ALL OF OUR FEES ARE DESIGNED TO COVER ALL THE COSTS. AND THE WATER SURCHARGE RATE HASN'T BEEN INCREASED SINCE THE CITY WAS INCORPORATED AS A CITY.

I WENT FROM VILLAGE TO A CITY AND THAT'S FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS. IT'S BECAUSE WE'VE PRIMARILY PUT ALL OF OUR EGGS IN THE INCOME TAX BUCKET AND THAT SERVED OUR RESIDENTS WELL BECAUSE IT WAS LARGELY PAID FOR BY PEOPLE WHO WORKED HERE BUT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE LIVED HERE.

IT'S ORTH TALKING ABOUT TO TALK ABOUT AGING WATER LINE INFRASTRUCTURE. THE LEGISLATURE INCREASED THE LICENSE TAX. IT'S THE TAX YOU PAY WHEN RENEW YOUR LICENSE PLATES OR EACH VEHICLE.

I THINK THERE'S AN ADDITIONAL $5 CHOORJ AND THE MUNICIPALITIES CAN NOW RAISE. AND WHAT WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT ALL THE EXPENDITURE SIDE AND WHAT OUTCOMES WE'RE TRYING TO CREATE, WE'RE AT THE POINT WHERE REVENUES WON'T COVER THE PROJECTS. WHAT WOULD BE THE APPROPRIATE PROCESS FOR CITY AND STAFF TO RE-EVALUATE OUR WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR PLAN? BEING IT'S SOURCED AT 50% OF OUR INCOME AND I KNOW THERE'S A PLAN DRAFTED EIGHT YEARS AGO.

HOW DO WE TALK ABOUT THAT? >> NORMALLY WE INITIATE PLANNING AS AGE OUTGROWTH OF YOUR -- AN OUTGROWTH OF YOUR RETREAT.

WE MAKE ADJUSTMENTS TO OUR STRATEGIC PLAN.

THE OTHER WAY IS BY ALLOCATING AND THE SECOND WAY S BY ALLOCATING PLANNING DOLLARS IN THE BUDGET.

EITHER WAY. THE CHALLENGE WITH IDENTIFYING IN THE RETREAT IS WE ALREADY ADOPT THE BUDGET AND WON'T HAVE ALLOCATED DOLLARS TO UPPORT IN THE BUDGET.

WE MAY BE ABLE TO CONSOLIDATE FROM ASSISTANCE AND THAT SORT OF THINGS. THE SECOND WAY IS IF YOU DECIDE IT'S A PRIORITY OR PLANNING INITIATIVE YOU WANT TO TAKE UNLIKE THE VISIONING PROCESS THAT'S A LAND USE DOCUMENT AND THAT'S PRIMARILY AND HE CHARTER RESPONSIBILITY FOR THOSE ACTIVITIES IS THE PLANNING COMMISSION.

IT WOULD NOT BE UNUSUAL TO REFER TO YOUR PLANNING COMMISSION THE TASK OF RE-EVALUATING THE COMMISSIONS AND IF IT'S A PRIORITY GIVING THEM RESOURCES TO ACCOMPLISH THAT.

[01:55:08]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. LATE US HEAR YOUR QUESTION.

>> I'LL START WITH EASY NES. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I THOUGHT THERE WERE PURCHASES BEING DELAYED BY TWO YEARS.

AM I READING THAT RIGHT? >> YES, IF YOU LOOK AT THE SHEET ITEMS IN RED WERE BEING DELAYED. WE WORKED WITH HE FLEET MANAGER TO DISCUSS WHAT HAS TO STAY IN THE YEAR SUBMITTED FOR OTHERWISE IT WILL BREAK DOWN AND BE IN THE SHOP AND EVERYTHING ELSE GOT PUSHED. THAT MEANS SOME THINGS THAT GOT PUSHED MAY BE IN THE SHOP MORE OFTEN THAN NOW.

>> THE EXCEPTION WAS THE POLICE CRUISER REPLACEMENT SMIEK --

CYCLE AND MOTOR REPLACEMENT. >> THE ANNUAL PLACEMENT STAYED AND WE HAVE TWO MEDIC VEHICLES. ONE REQUESTED IN 2021 AND IS PROPOSED FOR 2022 AND ONE REQUESTED FOR 2024 AND BUMPED

OUT OF THE FIVE YEARS. >> THE LAST WE STRETCHED OUT TO

17 YEARS. >> WE DON'T HAVE A LADDER TRUCK

BUDGETED IN THE CIP, CORRECT? >> AND I DON'T THINK WE NEED

ONE. >> I JUST KNOW WHAT THE LAST ONE COST AND WE GOT A DEAL BECAUSE 3 OF WTHE RECESSION AND IT WAS A MILLION DOLLAR TRUCK. OKAY.

WE'VE SAID FOR YEARS AND I'VE SAID THE OPERATING BUDGET WE DON'T REALLY HAVE A LOT OF SAY HOW EVER.

IT'S WHAT KEEPS HE DOORS OPEN. THE CAPITAL BUDGET IS AN EXPRESSION OF OUR PRIORITY. AND FOR AS LONG AS I'VE BEEN ON COUNCIL WILSON BRIDGE ROAD HAS BEEN OUR PRIORITY.

WITH THAT, THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS BUDGET FOR STREETSCAPE ENHANCEMENTS OUTSIDE OF NORTHEAST CORRIDOR, CORRECT?

>> AND LET ME SPEAK TO THAT YOU'RE CORRECT HOWEVER, MR. BROWN AND MR. MCCORKLE AND OUR TRAFFIC CONSULTANT HAS TALKED TO SOME EMPLOYERS AND EVALUATING TRANSPORTATION NEEDS IN THE AREA PARTICULARLY THE INTERSECTION WITH WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND OLD WILSON BRIDGE ROAD AND MAY BRING RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO THAT. WE HAVE A DIFFERENT REVENUE STREAM THAT'S NOT CURRENTLY -- IF THAT OF IS REQUESTED TO BE ADDED, WE HAVE A REVENUE STREAM TO HELP SUPPORT THAT.

>> I'M NOT LIMITING MY QUESTION TO WEST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD.

>> IGHT NOW IT'S TO THE ONLY AREA WHERE WE MIGHT RECOMMEND AREAS AS A RESULT OF THOSE DISCUSSIONS.

>> THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD CORRIDOR PLAN AND STREETSCAPE ENHANCEMENTS, THERE'S ALSO NO MONEY IN THIS BUDGET IF THE OPPORTUNITY WOULD ARISE TO MAKE ANY REAL ESTATE URCHASES ON

EAST WILSON BRIDGE ROAD. >> NOT CURRENTLY.

>> THERE'S NOT MONEY TO DO THAT? >> AND WE HAVE CASH BALANCES IN THE CIC ACCOUNT FOR THAT. WE MAY BE ABLE TO EMPLOY SOME FINANCING STRATEGIES TO HELP ACCOMPLISH THE GOAL.

[02:00:20]

>> WE CAN'T BUDGET FOR THAT RIGHT NOW EITHER, RIGHT?

>> THAT'S CORRECT. >>

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ARE WE DOING TO SEEK THE TRAILS FUNDING BECAUSE IT'S NOW GOING TO BE A CONNECTOR WITH THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY IT'S A CONNECTION AND THAT'S ONE OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY WHEN I WAS ON THE COMMISSION.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY AND NOW WE CAN SHOW

IT'S A CONNECTION. >> STAFF HAVE RECENTLY BEEN ENGAGED WITH NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES INCLUDING METRO PARKS AND THERE'S SIGNIFICANT CONVERSATION ABOUT FUNDING OPTIONS AND THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT WE'RE IN THAT CONVERSATION,

YES. >> WE LOOKED AT WILSON BRIDGE ROAD IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO US.

WE HAVE THE TRAIL AT ONE END AND WE HAVE THE REC CENTER AND MCCORD PARK AT THE OTHER ND AND ALWAYS HAD THE VISION OF RYING TO TIE THE TWO TOGETHER AND THIS UNFORTUNATELY, NOT BLAMING ANYONE BUT UNFORTUNATELY THIS BUDGET ISN'T OING TO HELP A LOT WITH TYING THE TWO TOGETHER. I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T ABANDON MCCORD PARK. I THINK THAT'S THE DESTINATION AND I THINK IT'S A TIRED PARK. WHAT'S $1.8 MILLION GOING TO GET US?

>> BEFORE YOU APPROVE THE CIP I THINK WE CAN GIVE YOU A CLEANER PICTURE OF THAT. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT FEATURES IN THE APPROVED CONCEPT FOR THE PARK THE BIGGEST NUMBERS THAT DON'T TIE INTO A LOT OF OTHER THINGS, YOU IS -- YOU HAVE A PLAYGROUND THAT'S $250,000 AND IMPROVEMENTS TO BALL FIELD AND FENCES AND REALIGNMENT OF THE FOUR DIAMONDS AROUND $750,000. YOU GOT YOUR STRUCTURE AND RESTROOM STORAGE BUILD AT $570,000.

TO DRIVE THAT DOWN FROM THE 2.8 TO $1.8 MILLION MAYBE SLAPPING PAINT ON THE REST ROOMS. THERE IS SIGNIFICANT MONEY.

IF YOU LOOKED AT THE CONCEPT PLAN AND RECONFIGURING THE ENTRANCE DRIVE, HALF MILE WALKING TRAIL WHICH CAME FROM A LOT OF BUSINESSES ON THE CORRIDOR, THAT PAVEMENT IS A BIG COST DRIVER. THREES ROOM TO LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF WHAT TO SPEND THERE AND I UNDERSTAND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CIP THERE'S PERCEIVED FLEXIBILITY THERE.

I THINK WE'LL BE PREPARED AS EARLY IN NOVEMBER AS POSSIBLE TO GIVE YOU TIERED LOOKS IN CASE YOU WANT TO CONSIDER A LESSER

BUDGET FOR THAT. >> I WOULD PREFER TO SEE A PHASED APPROACH THAN A TIERED APPROACH.

IF YOU'RE ON THE OLENTANGY BIKE PATH I WANT TO GIVE A REASON AND A PATCHED TOGETHER PARK IS NOT THE WAY TO DO IT.

IF IT TAKES FIVE YEARS INSTEAD OF TWO, I THINK IT'S ACCEPT PANEL I WANT THIS TO LOOK GOOD AND FUNCTION BECAUSE RIGHT NOW

IT'S NEITHER. >> I SHOULD HAVE PROBABLY ADD TO MR. ROBINSON'S QUESTION, WE HAVE THE ROTARY THOUGH ON THE

[02:05:08]

LOWER END OF THE NUMBERS TO FINISH THE TRAIN OBSERVATION

AREA. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I KNOW THERE'S SENIOR LEAGUES WITH ENGAG ENGAGEMENT IN GENERAL AND THE WALKING PATHS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. JUST ANOTHER ICING ON THE CAKE AND CONTINUE TO STRESS WHY MCCORD PARK RISES TO THE TOP.

IT'S ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT.

IT'S PROMOTING AGE FRIENDLY AND IT OUNDS LIKE WE SHOULD ONS WHY- CONTINUE TO KEEP THAT OUR TOP PRIORITY.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I AVE ONE MORE QUESTION.

THE PAVER RESTORATION FOR 240IZ -- $20,000 AND OTHERS.

>> PROCEEDS FROM TIF TO PAY FOR PAVERS.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WHERE'S THE BALANCE STAND NOW?

IS IT WORKING? >> IT'S WRKING.

THE BALANCE IS DECEPTIVE BECAUSE WE OWE QUITE A BIT OF MONEY TO THE SCHOOLS FOR THEIR COMPENSATION AGREEMENT.

YOU'LL SEE LEGISLATION TO APPROPRIATE THE FUNDS TO DISTRIBUTE THE MONEY TO THE SCHOOLS.

IT IS WORKING AND GENERATING SOME MONEY.

AT LEAST $20,000. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU. THIS SAY WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND I APPRECIATE AVING THIS LEVEL OF DETAIL AND LOOK FORWARD TO DIVING IN MORE. THANK YOU EVERYBODY WHO HAS PUT THIS TOGETHER. I THINK IT'S BEEN VERY HELPFUL TO UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAME TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS.

>> MY PLEASURE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU TO STAFF. WE'RE GOING TO BE HAVING QUITE A FEW WONDERFUL PRESENTATIONS AS WE'VE HAD AND WE APPRECIATE ALL THE STAFF TIME INTO THIS. WE STILL HAVE THE FINANCIAL

[9.A.III. Financial Report - September 2019]

REPORT TO GO AND SHOULD NOT TAKE VERY LONG.

>> PRESIDENT MICHAEL HAVE YOU INCLUDED IN THE PACKET THE FINANCIAL REPORT AND IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS I'D BE HAPPY TO

ANSWER. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY

>> I WANTED TO NOTE THAT THE INCOME TAX COLLECTION THE ESTIMATE, THERE'S LESS THAN A QUARTER PERCENT DIFFERENCE MEANING OUR FINANCE DIRECTOR DID A VERY GOOD JOB OF ESTIMATION.

>> THANK YOU. I WISH IT WAS WRONG TO THE OTHER

END. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYTHING ELSE? NOT ALL IN FAVOR OF APPROVING THE FINANCIAL REPORT SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

[10. Reports of Council Members]

OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. MR. GREESON, REPORTS OF COUNCIL MEMBERS, MS. THRESS. MR. LINDSAY.

>> NO THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. D.

ROBINSON. >> I HAD THE PLEASURE AND HONOR TO ATTEND THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORIC PLACES ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN DENVER LAST WEEK.

COMMENTARY SOME TIME IN EARLY NOVEMBER ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT I TOOK AWAY FROM THE TWO DAYS

THERE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: PLEASE

DO SO. >>

>> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS.

DOROTHY. >> R. DOROTHY: I ATTENDED A SUMMIT AND THERE'S A LOT OF STUFF HAPPENING THROUGH OUR CENTRAL OHIO. WORTHINGTON HAS NOT SIGNED UP TO DO SEVERAL OF THE SUSTAINABILITY MEASURES OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING IN THE REGION BUT WE ARE WELL AWARE OF THE SUSTAINABILITY 2050

[02:10:07]

WHICH WE DID GET A PLATINUM AWARD FOR.

BUT WE'RE LOOKING TO INCREASE IN THE REGION OF 1 MILLION PEOPLE BY 2050 AND LOOKING FOR WAYS TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF ENERGY WE'RE USING AT THE SAME TIME. THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS WE CAN BE LOOKING AT FOR THE OVERALL REGION.

I'M SURE WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT THAT IN THE FUTURE.

I WAS THANKFUL FOR GOING THERE WITH SEVERAL TAFF MEMBERS AND THE CEMETERY BOARD IS STILL WORKING THROUGH THE OVERALL PLANNING PROCESS FOR WORK AT THE OFFICE FOR THE CEMETERY AND WE'RE STILL PLANNING AND LOOKING TO START SOME CONSTRUCTION BUT WE'RE STILL IN THE PLANNING STAGES.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: TWO THINGS. MS. DOROTHY AND A WERE ABLE TO ATTEND THE PACKING OF BUDDY BOX LAST WEEK.

I APPRECIATE THAT OPPORTUNITY TO SEE OUR GRANT DOLLARS AT WORK.

I HOPE WE MAY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT WITH OTHER SITES TO SEE HOW WE MAKE AN IPACT IN OUR COMMUNITY WITH THOSE GRANT DOLLARS. THE OTHER THING I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW OUR GRISWALD CENTER DIRECTOR AND I ATTENDED A MEETING ON THURSDAY OF ABLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITIES IN OHIO.

THEY FORMED A COALITION CALLED THE AGE FRIENDLY COALITION OF COMMUNITIES IN OHIO INTENDED TO SHARE INFORMATION AND TO ALSO HAVE A SEAT AT THE TABLE WHEN AGE FRIENDLY OHIO DISCUSSIONS START WHICH THEY'RE STARTING. IT ENERGIZED US.

WE WERE THE ONLY ONES SPIRING AGE FRIENDLY COMMUNITY OR EXPLORING. EVERYBODY ELSE WAS IN A LEVEL OF THE PROCESS. LEARNING WHAT THEY'RE LESSONS LEARNED WERE. HOW THEY UTILIZE RESOURCES.

A LOT OF THEM HAD SIMILAR ISSUES WE TALKED ABOUT IN PREVIOUS DISCUSSIONS. I THINK THERE'S A NETWORK I THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT RESOURCE FOR US MOVING FORWARD.

I LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING MORE WITH MR. HARLEY AND OTHERS HOW WE CAN PUT TOGETHER A PROPOSAL AND CONSIDERING TONIGHT'S DISCUSSION A PROPOSAL THAT DRAWS ON EXISTING RESOURCES WITHIN THE CITY AND COMMUNITY RATHER THAN POTENTIALLY OR ASKING FOR NEW RESOURCES TO FUND THE INITIATIVE.

HOPEFULLY THAT WILL BE THE GOAL. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I'M PROUD OF OUR VICE MAYOR BE INDUCTED INTO THE COLUMBUS HALL OF FAME AND ANN BROWN HAS ALL THE INFORMATION.

I THINK IT'S WONDERFUL OUR VICE MAYOR IS GOING TO BE INDUCTED INTO THAT AND IT'S AT THE LINCOLN THEATRE 5:00 ON OCTOBER 30. WE'RE DOING DOWN IF ANYBODY WANTS TO JOIN US. IT MAKES IT EASIER ON MARKING.

THAT'S SOMETHING, FYI. I THINK IT'S WONDERFUL WE HAVE A VICE MAYOR THAT COLUMBUS IS PULLING THEM IN THEIR HALL OF
