OPPOSED? THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED.

[6.A. Resolution No. 61-2019 Renewal of Right of Way Agreement – MCImetro]

MOVING ONTO RESOLUTION NO. 61-2019 RENEWAL OF RIGHT OF WAY AGREEMENT - MCIMETRO APPROVING AN AGREEMENT AND PERMIT FOR AND BETWEEN MCIMETRO ACCESS TRANSMISSION SERVICES LLC, A DELAWARE LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY, TO OPERATE AND MAINTAIN A TELECOMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM WITHIN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON PURSUANT TO AND SUBJECT TO THE PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER 949 OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH,

SECONDED BY MS. DOROTHY. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, OCCUPANCY OF THE RIGHT-OF-WAY, IN THIS CASE A RENEWAL. AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU NEED

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COUNCIL , QUESTIONS? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. THAT PASSED.

[6.B. Resolution No. 62-2019 NE Gateway Right of Way Acquisition (Parcel 14)]

RESOLUTION NO. 62-2019 NE GATEWAY RIGHT OF WAY ACQUISITION (PARCEL 14) AUTHORIZING THE ACQUISITION OF CERTAIN REAL ESTATE INTERESTS INVOLVING PARCEL 14 FOR THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

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

MR. GREESON. >> M. GREESON: I'M GOING TO TURN THIS OVER TO DIRECTOR LINDSAY AND WE'LL COVER WHAT WE'RE DOING

HERE. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. THIS IS ANOTHER PARCEL WE ACQUIRED WITH THE RIGHT-OF-WAY PROJECT FOR THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY. SIMILAR TO IN THE PAST WE GO THROUGH A PROCESS THAT IS APPROVED AND ADOPTED BY THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, ALONG WITH THE FEDERAL DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. IN ORDER TO USE THE FUNDS THAT ARE PROVIDED FOR THIS PROJECT WE GO THROUGH A DESIGNATED PROJECT PROCESS FOR ACQUISITION OF ALL RIGHT-OF-WAY NEEDED.

THIS IS A PARCEL THAT THE PROPERTY OWNER NEGOTIATED WITH OUR RIGHT-OF-WAY CONSULTANT FOR AN AGREED AMOUNT ABOVE THE AMOUNT SET FORTH IN THE RESOLUTION BY WHICH MR. GREESON COULD HAVE SIGNED IT AND THERE BEEN WE NEED TO COME BEFORE YOU FOR THAT. THE AMOUNT OF THE PARCEL ACQUISITION WAS APPROVED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION AND THEREFORE, ASK YOU TO APPROVE THE RESOLUTION FOR THE $26,340 ABOVE THE ORIGINALLY ESTIMATED VALUE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COUNCIL QUESTIONS?

MR. ROBINSON. >> D. ROBINSON: MR. LINDSEY, WAS THE PURCHASE PRICE ARRIVED ON WITH NEGOTIATED WITH THE PROPERTY OWNER? WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT WAYS WE WERE ACQUIRING PARCELS FROM DIRECT NEGOTIATION WITH THE SELLER ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER EXTREME OF EMINENT OMAIN.

>> THERE WAS AN NEGOTIATED AMOUNT BY AND THROUGH THE ATTORNEY REPRESENTING THE PROPERTY OWNER.

VARIOUS FEATURES WHICH ARE NOT NORMALLY INCLUDED IN PART OF THE JUST ASSESSMENT EVALUATION, SUCH AS DAMAGE TO THE REMAINDER OF THE PARCEL. SOMETIMES IT'S NOT ONLY WHAT WE'RE ACQUIRING BUT HOW IT WILL IMPACT THE USE OF WHAT'S

[00:05:01]

REMAINING. THAT'S NOT THE VALUATION OF THE PIECE WE NEED, IT CAN HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON THE PROPERTY OWNER. THROUGH THAT PROCESS WITH THE RIGHT-OF-WAY CONSULTANT NEGOTIATING THE VALUE WITH THE PROPERTY OWN'S ATTORNEY, IT WAS REVISED AS THIS BEING A REASONABLE AMOUNT. PARTICULARLY, IN LIGHT OF THE TREMENDOUS COST IF WE WOULD HAVE FILED AN APPROPRIATION FOR THIS AND HAD TO GO THROUGH THAT PROPS, WHICH IS BOTH TIME CONSUMING IN TERMS OF HIRING THE NECESSARY APPRAISAL EXPERTS TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL TESTIMONY, THE COURT PROCEEDINGS REQUIRED FOR THAT. SO IN THAT REGARD, PART OF THE JUSTIFICATION FOR THIS PRICE IS THE TREMENDOUS COST OF GOING THE OTHER RIGHT. WE STILL DO HAVE A NUMBER OF PARCELS REMAINING IN THE APPROPRIATION PROCESS.

MOVING ALONG RATHER SLOWLY, WHICH IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR THE COURT PROCESS. THTHERE IS A PERIOD OF TIME AT WHICH THE PARTIES HAVE TO ATTEMPT A MEDIATED SETTLEMENT.

IT'S POSSIBLE THAT THAT APPROACH WILL BE ORE LIKELY TO ARRIVE AT AN AGREED NUMBER THAN THE PREFILING NEGOTIATION.

THE REASON IS THE AUTHORITY OF THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION INCREASES ONCE THE PROCESS STARTS.

STILL OPTIMISTIC THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO ACQUIRE MOST IF NOT ALL THE PROPERTIES THROUGH A NEGOTIATED FORMAT, SOME WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE COURT STRUCTURE.

IF THAT'S NOT SUCCESSFUL, THE CASE WOULD PROCEED TO TRIAL AND JURY WOULD DETERMINE THE VALUE BASED ON THE APPRAISAL AND TESTIMONY OF THE PARTIES. YOU RECOLLECT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED? RESOLUTION 62-2019 IS PASSED.

[6.C. Resolution No. 63-2019 Transfer of Funds (Parks & Recreation)]

RESOLUTION NO. 63-2019 TRANSFER OF FUNDS (PARKS & RECREATION) ADJUSTING THE ANNUAL BUDGET BY PROVIDING FOR A TRANSFER OF PREVIOUSLY APPROPRIATED FUNDS. INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH, MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MS. DOROTHY AND SECONDED BY MS. KOWALCZYK.

MR. GREESON. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICH AEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, A FEW TIMES A YEAR WE BRING TO YOU A TRANSFER RESOLUTION. INSTANCES WHERE THERE ARE ACCOUNTS WHERE THERE ARE ESSENTIALLY NOT ENOUGH FUNDS TO COVER ANTICIPATED EXPENDITURES AND SURPLUS FUNDS, WE ASK YOU TO TRANSFER FUNDS BETWEEN THOSE ACCOUNTS TO HELP ENSURE THAT WE MAINTAIN A BALANCED AND APPROPRIATE BUDGETARY ACCOUNTING. IN THIS CASE, WE'RE ASKING FOR A NUMBER OF RELATIVELY SMALL TRANSFERS TOTALING ABOUT $48,000. FROM DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS IN THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT. MR. HURLEY OR BARTTER, I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE ABOUT THE VARIOUS TRANSFERS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. RESOLUTION 63-2019 IS PASSED.

INTRODUCED BY MS. DOROTHY. MOVING ONTO THE REPORTS OF CITY OFFICIALS. MR. GREESON, WE HAVE A LIQUOR

[7.A.I. New Liquor Permit – Guru Wines]

[00:10:03]

PERMIT WITH GURU WINE. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAE, THIS IS A PROCESS WHERE WE WERE NOTIFIED BY THE DIVISION OF LIQUOR CONTROL ABOUT THE PERSPECTIVE ISSUANCE OF A LIQUOR PERMIT FOR GURU WINES IN THE LINWORTH AREA.

AND THE PROCEDURE HERE WE ASK THE DIVISION OF POLICE FIRST TO LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF HERE ARE CONCERNS FROM THE DIVISION BASED ON THE BACKGROUNDS OF THE INDIVIDUALS.

AND WE'RE NOT AWARE OF ANY. SO THEREFORE, WE WOULD HAVE NO BASIS UNDER THE LAW TO OBJECT. SO THE PROCEDURE IS NOT TO OBJECT. IT'S KIND OF A STRANGE MOTION BUT THAT'S WHAT THEY NEED TO HEAR.

THEY NEED TO HEAR WE'RE NOT OBJECTING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COUNCILMEMBERS? IF NOT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

OKAY. WE HAVE PASSED THAT MOTION.

MOVING ONTO THE PROPOSED BUDGET. WE'LL TURN THIS OVER TO

[7.A.II. Proposed 2020 Budget – Departmental Overview]

MR. GREESON TO MOVE US FORWARD ON THE BUDGET.

>> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAE, JUST FOR THE RECORD THAT PERMIT WAS C-1 PERMIT FOR BEER ND C-2 PERMIT FOR WINE AND MIXED BEVERAGES BOTH CONCEALED CONTAINER AND CARRY-OUT.

THE LISTENING PUBLIC'S INFORMATION.

GLAD TO MOVE ONTO THE BUDGET PRESENTATION.

AND THANK YOU, ONCE GAIN FOR HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK TO YOU ARE ABOUT MY PROPOSED 2020 OPERATING BUDGET.

AS YOU KNOW, OUR PROCESS STARTS IN JULY.

WHERE WE SEEK SOME INPUT FROM YOU AND AS YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS WE LOOK AT IN THE COURSE OF DEVELOPING THE BUDGET AND RELEASING IT TO YOU IN EARLY OCTOBER, WHICH WE DID.

SO WE RELEASED IT TO YOU LAST MONTH.

AND HAVE GONE THROUGH THE HIGH-LEVEL PROJECTIONS OF THE FIVE-YEAR FORECAST AND GIVEN YOU A FAIRLY EXTENSIVE PRESENTATION ON THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM.

NOW, WE'RE SCHEDULED TO DELVE INTO EACH OPERATING DEPARTMENT THIS EVENING AND THROUGH THE REMAINING MEETINGS OF NOVEMBER.

WE'RE KEEPING TRACK OF QUESTIONS YOU HAVE RAISED AND ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THOSE AS WE MOVE ALONG . IN FACT, I PUT A MEMO AT YOUR PLACE THAT ANSWERS THE QUESTIONS WE HAVE COLLECTED TO DATE FROM YOU. ONE OF THE THINGS WE DO IS WE TRY TO KEEP FOCUSED ON THE PRIORITIES THAT YOU DEVELOP AT THE RETREAT. THESE AREN'T THE ONLY PRIORITIES WE FOCUS ON. OBVIOUSLY, WE DRAW PRIORITIES FROM PLANS THAT YOU'VE ADOPTED, FROM CITIZEN INPUT, AND FROM DEPARTMENTAL RECOMMENDATIONS. BUT ONE OF THE THINGS I WANT TO NOTE IS THAT WHERE THESE PRIORITIES ARE BOLDED IN THIS PRESENTATION, THAT MEANS, ESSENTIALLY WE'VE TRIED TO BOLD EVERYWHERE THERE IS A RETREAT PRIORITY IN THE PRESENTATION SO WE'RE ADICATELY KEEPING TRACK OF HOW WE'RE ADDRESSING YOUR TOPICS OR PRIORITIES, I SHOULD SAY. -- ADEQUATELY -- THE NEXT COUPLE OF SLIDES IN YOUR POWER POINT AREN'T BOLDED ITEMS. BUT WE INCLUDED THEM AS A REFRESHER OF OTHER ISSUES THAT WERE TALKED ABOUT AT THE RETREAT BUT WEREN'T IN THE TOP LINE LIST OF PRIORITIES.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MS. AND SHE IS GOING TO COVER THE MAYOR'S COURT AND WHAT WE GENERALLY WOULD CALL THE ADMINISTRATIVE BUDGET, LEGISLATIVE CLERK, ADMIN, PERSONNEL, AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.

MR. BARTTER IS GOING TO ALSO DO PART OF THIS PRESENTATION.

AND THEN I'M GOING TO WRAP IT UP.

>> THANK YOU. I'M GOING TO TOUCH ON HIGH-LEVEL, BIG-PICTURE ITEMS IN THIS SECTION.

CERTAINLY, FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS THAT RELATE TO MORE DETAIL. ON THE SLIDE, YOU CAN SEE HIGHLIGHTED ANY CHANGES INCORPORATED INTO THE BUDGET.

IN THE LEGISLATIVE AND CLERK AREA, WE HAVE TWO ITEMS THAT WERE INCORPORATED THAT RESULTED IN ADDITIONAL FUNDING.

ONE, IS TO FULLY FUND A FULL YEAR OF THE LIVE STREAM AND VIDEO ARCHIVING FOR CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS.

[00:15:05]

PREVIOUSLY PARTIALLY FUNDED BY THE TECHNOLOGY FUND.

IT'S INCORPORATED FULLY IN THE GENERAL FUND.

WE ALSO THIS YEAR HAD INCREASED SOME OF THE FUNDING FOR OUR FIREWORKS FOR THE 4TH OF JULY. THAT WOULD BEEN FLAT FOR THE 10 YEARS I HAD BEEN HERE. WE WERE NOTICING WITH THAT WITH THE FIREWORKS DISPLAY. WE BUMPED THAT UP SLIGHTLY, INCORPORATED INTO THE PROPOSED BUDGET FOR NEXT YEAR.

THE OTHER ITEM IS IN THE PERSONNEL AREA.

IN 2019, WE HAD INCREASED OUR FUNDING FOR RETIREMENT PAY OUTS DUE TO THE NUMBER OF RETIREMENTSES WE WERE ANTICIPATING TO EXPERIENCE ACROSS THE CITY ORGANIZATION.

IN EXT YEAR WE KEPT THAT FUNDING LINE FLAT AND THAT'S WHERE WE INTEND TO HELP FUND SOME OF THE TRANSITION OF OUR 911 CENTER OVER TO THE NORTHWEST CENTER.

WE EXPECT PAY OUTS ASSOCIATED WITH EMPLOYEES WORKING IN OUR CENTER. THAT FUNDING WAS KEPT IN THE HIGHER LEVEL AS EXPERIENCED IN 2019 ALSO.

P THESE NEXT SEVERAL SLIDES HAVE THE CHARTS OF NUMBERS AND GRAPHS ASSOCIATED WITH THE BUDGET NUMBERS.

HERE AS ALREADY MENTIONED, THE INCREASE THAT IS BEING SHOWN IS DUE TO THE FULL COST OF COUNCIL VIDEO AND INCREASED FIREWORKS BUDGET. MAYOR'S COURT, PRETTY FLAT.

A JUMP IN 18 TO 19 DUE TO BUDGETING WE HAVE FOR WITNESS FEES AND JAIL KEEP. IF WE HAVE SOMEBODY IN JAIL WE NEED TO PAY THOSE COSTS AND CHANGE IN OUR EMPLOYEE USE OF OUR HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE. THAT'S WHY YOU SEE A BIT OF A JUMP FROM 2018 TO 2019 BUT THE 2020 BUDGET IS STAYING RELATIVELY FLAT. ADMINISTRATION IS ALSO STAYING RELATIVELY FLAT. IN 2018 TO 2019 WE HAD MOVED FROM PARTIAL-YEAR FUNDING FOR THE ASSISTANT CITY CLERK TO A FULL YEAR WHICH DROVE CHANGES IN THOSE NUMBERS.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IS FUNDED IN TWO DIFFERENT AREAS.

THIS SLIDE SHOWS THE PORTION THAT IS FUNDED IN THE GENERAL FUND. AND IN THE CHART IT CERTAINLY LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE INCREASED OUR FUNDING FROM 2018 TO 2019, DECREASED. DUE TO THE TRANSFER INTO THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. OTHERWISE THE FUNDING IS CONSISTENT IN HE GENERAL FUND ACROSS THE YEARS SHOWN HERE.

>> WE DID WE MAKE THE TRANSFER IN 2019?

>> WE HAVE A RANSFER EVERY YEAR.

AND IT'S -- WE EVALUATE HOW MANY ARE AVAILABLE AND WHETHER THAT FUND BALANCE IS ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THE ACTIVITIES IN THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUND AND THE AMOUNT OF THE TRANSFER FROM THE GENERAL FUND T TO THE ECONOC FUND IS MADE AS NEEDED TO SUPPORT THOSE. IF THE YEAR WE HAVE HAD BUILD UP, WE OULD HAVE A LESSON AMOUNT TRANSFERRED OUT.

IF A YEAR WE SPENT DOWN HAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUND WE HAVE A HIGHER TRANSFER TO HELP BUILD UP THE CASH THAT IS

AVAILABLE IN THAT FUND. >> D. ROBINSON: THE AGGREGATE BETWEEN THE TWO IS THAT CONSTANT OR GONE UP?

>> THE EXPENDITURE IS REMAINING PRETTY SIMILAR.

YOU CAN SEE IN THE GENERAL FUND, THE TRANSFER LINE IS CALLED OUT SEPARATELY. YOU CAN SEE THE EXPENDITURE TRENDS IN THE OTHER AREAS. THE NEXT SLIDE THOSE THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FUND. IN 2018, WE HAD LOWER EXPENSES THAN ARE BUDGETED FOR THIS YEAR AND PROJECTED FOR NEXT YEAR.

IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, THAT WAS DUE TO THE ACTUAL AMOUNT OF INCENTIVES THROUGH VENTURE GRANTS AND OTHER FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE VERSUS WHAT IS BUDGETED.

WE TRY TO BUDGET WITH A LITTLE BIT OF A CUSH CUSHION.

IF DEALS COME UP, WE HAVE BUDGET DO WORK ITH.

SOME YEARS WE FULLY USE THE BUDGET AND OTHER YEARS WE DON'T.

MR. MCCORKLE IS IN THE AUDIENCE IF YOU HAVE DETAILED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE USE OF THOSE INCENTIVE AND EXPENDITURES.

>> THE BUILDINGS TO MAKE THEM MORE DESIRABLE FOR PEOPLE TO USE.

BESIDES FACE AND PACE? >> GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT

[00:20:02]

MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. YEAH.

SO PART OF THE PRIORITIES YOU MENTIONED WERE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR WERE WILSON BRIDGE AND UPDATING OUR INVENTORY.

WE PLAN TO RELEASE A WILSON BRIDGE SURVEY SO WE CAN TARGET THAT WITH PROGRAMMING. WE'RE UNDERTAKING A MULTIPRONGED APPROACH TO TARGETING THOSE CANADIAN, FOREIGN-OWNED PROPERTIES TO GET THEM TO REINVEST IN THEIR BUILDINGS.

THEY HAVEN'T TO DATE INVESTED A WHOLE LOT BACK INTO THOSE BUILDINGS. WE WANT TO KEEP THEM COMPETITIVE AND COMPETE WITH NEIGHBORING JURISDICTIONS.

SO WE'RE TALKING ABOUT USING OUR FACADE PROGRAM TO HELP THEM.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT PASTE FINANCING TO HELP THEM.

AND MORE BROADLY SOMETHING THAT HAS NOT BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU YET BUT OU HEARD ME REFERENCE A ACOUPLE OF TIMES.

FIND WAYS TO INCENTIVIZE PROPERTY OWNERS TO REINVEST IN BUILDINGS. INSTEAD OF HAVING OUR VENTURE GRANT DOLLARS THAT TYPICALLY GO TOWARDS PAYROLL GO TO A PRIVATE BUSINESS WE WANT TO BE TARGETED IN OUR APPROACH AND HAVE THOSE GO TOWARDS BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS THAT STAY WITH THE BUILDING, STAY WITH THE ASSET, RATHER THAN JUST THE TENANT COMING AND GOING BETWEEN THE SPACES. THOSE WILL BE, THAT WILL BE A STRATEGY THAT WE LIKELY ITCH EARLY IN 2020.

>> THE FINAL CHART GRAPHIC DISPLAY IN THE BUDGET PRESENTATION RELATES TO PERSONNEL.

YOU CAN VISUALLY SEE THE INCREASE IN RETIREMENTS PAY FUNDING ALLOCATED FOR 2019 AND PROPOSED TO CONTINUE INTO 2020.

AND THEN PROPOSED TO BE A REDUCTION IN THAT IN 2021.

THE NEXT SEVERAL SLIDES RELATE TO THE GOALS FOR THIS UPCOMING YEAR IN 2020 AS IDENTIFIED IN THE BUDGET DOCUMENT.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE IN THE LEGISLATIVE AND CLERK AREA, REALLY ALL OF THE ITEMS RELATES TO THE ALREADY-COUNCIL-ADOPTED PRIORITIES ESTABLISHED IN THE RETREAT OR COMMUNITY ENVISIONING INITIATIVE WHICH OUNCIL PLACED GREAT EMPHASIS ON.

IN MAYOR'S COURT, THE MAYOR AND COURT CLERK GET TOGETHER TO IDENTIFY GOALS FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR FOR THE COURT AREA.

YOU HAVE TWO BULLETS HERE. I'LL TOUCH ON BRIEFLY.

THE FIRST ONE RELATES O ENHANCED PENALTIES FOR DISTRACTED DRIVING. TIES TO A CHANGE IN STATE LAW THAT INCORPORATES THESE ENHANCED PENALTIES.

WE NEEDED TO UPDATE OUR PRACTICES AND PENALTIES IN MAYOR'S COURT TO MATCH WHAT THE NEW STATE LAW.

AND ALSO TRAINING POLICE OFFICERS SO THEY CAN ACCURATELY AND APPROPRIATELY DOCUMENT THOSE OFFENSES ON TICKETS.

THE OTHER BULLET IS REGARDING OUR POLICY AROUND ISSUING WARRANTS FOR VARIOUS CASES IN MAYOR'S COURT.

OUR MAYOR AND COURT STAFF ARE LOOKING AT THIS ISSUE IN LIGHT OF A NATIONAL CONVERSATION THAT IS OCCURRING ABOUT THE IMPACT OF COURT ACTIONS ON PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO PAY FINES AND ASSESSMENTS. SO WE'RE LOOKING AT HOW OUR COURT IS HANDLING THOSE TO EVALUATE ANY CHANGES THAT OUGHT

TO BE MADE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THERE ANYTHING AVAILABLE AS TO WHAT THE PENALTY CHANGES ARE FOR

THE DISTRACTED DRIVING? >> WE CAN PROVIDE THAT

INFORMATION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I THINK THAT MIGHT BE INTERESTING IF SOMEBODY ASKS.

IT MIGHT BE NICE TO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE.

>> I WOULD LIKE THE INFORMATION ON THE OTHER POLICY FOR WARRANTS

TOO. >> I THINK THAT COULD GET

DISTRIBUTED. >> OKAY.

THE ADMINISTRATION AREA GOALS FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR TIE TO COUNCIL'S PRIORITIES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN ADOPTED, PLUS FOCUS ON SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETING THE TRANSITION TO THE NORTHWEST REGIONAL EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION CENTER FOR 911 AND PUBLIC SAFETY DISPATCHING. ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, WE'LL CONTINUE TO WORK ON FILLING VACANT SPACE, SEEK SUCCESSFUL REINVESTMENT, TO BENEFIT COMMUNITY AND PROVIDE EXTRA FOCUS AS CITY COUNCIL INDICATED. YOU WOULD SUPPORT EXTRA FOCUS ON WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, SUCH A AJOR TAX BASE FOR US.

>> WERE, THE ANTHEM BUILDING DIDN'T GET FILLED.

I THINK EVERYONE HAD THEIR HOPES AND FINGERS CROSSED.

>> BACK ON THE 911 TRANSFER, WILL ALL OF THE ADDITIONAL COSTS

[00:25:12]

ATTRIBUTABLE -- >> I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE WE WON'T HAVE LINGERING THINGS INTO 2021. WE'RE NOT PROJECTING THAT.

WE HAVE CONSTRUCTION IN CITY BUILDINGS RELATED TODAY HAT.

AND OTHER INITIATIVES. BUT I WOULD EXPECT THAT THE EXPENSES WE HAVE IDENTIFIED ARE PROGRAMMED FOR 2020.

MR. GREESON STATED THE NE-TIME EXPENSES, OBVIOUSLY, WE'LL HAVE ONGOING EXPENSES REGARDING THE FUTURE.

THE ONE-TIME TRANSITION XPENSES ARE PROGRAMMED FOR 2020 AT THIS POINT. IN THE PERSONNEL REA, WE ARE LOOKING TO EVALUATE OUR PART-TIME POSITIONS.

THE WAY THEY ARE STRUCTURED AND COMPENSATED.

AND BASED ON ADVICE FROM OUR INSURANCE CARRIER, WE'RE LOOKING TO DEVELOP A STRONG OLICY AND PROGRAMS REGARDING THE DETECTION AND PREVENTION OF ABUSE AND MOLESTATION.

THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE OFFER PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN.

WE'RE LOOKING AT THE POLICY AND PROGRAM WE HAVE IN PLACE AROUND THAT AND DEVELOPING THAT MORE EXTENSIVELY.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE IN THE ADMINISTRATION AREA.

I BELIEVE MR. BARTTER IS GOING TO HANDLE THE NEXT SEVERAL

SLIDES. >> DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION?

GO AHEAD. >> B. KOWALCZYK:

>> I'M NOT SURE WHAT THE CURRENT CONVERSATIONS ARE REGARDING THAT OR IF ANYBODY IS READY TO SPEAK ON THAT THIS EVENING.

IF NOT, I'M FOLLOW-UP. >> I WAS THINKING ABOUT MR. MCCORKLE'S COMMENT. IF DAVID WOULDN'T MIND, YOU ARE COMING UP ON YOUR FOUR-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH US.

HAVE YOU FORMED ANY EVALUATION OF OF THE OPENNESS? WE TALK ABOUT THESE OUTSIDE U.S. OWNERS OF PROPERTIES ON WILSON BRIDGE. DO YOU HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT HOW OPEN THEY ARE? HAVE WE DONE OUTREACH? I'M NOT TRYING TO PUT YOU ON THE SPOT BUT HOW MUCH OUTREACH HAVE WE DONE? WHAT'S THE REACTION?

>> SURE. THEY ARE CHALLENGING TO GET A HOLD OF. WE HAVE HAD INTERACTION WITH THEM PROBABLY HAVE A DOZEN TIMES OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

MOST OF THE INTERACTION THROUGH THE PROPERTIES MANAGER PARADIGM.

COUNCILMEMBER ROBINSON AND I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SIT DOWN WITH THE OWNERSHIP GROUP. THEY WERE RECEPTIVE AND OPEN.

I TRULY BELIEVE AND MR. ROBINSON CAN JUMP IN HERE, THAT OUR GOALS WERE ALIGNED. WE WANT TO MAKE THOSE BUILDINGS AS ATTRACTIVE AS POSSIBLE TO ATTRACT BUSINESSES.

THEY ALSO WANT TO DO THE SAME THINGS.

I THINK WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, THEY HAVE A POSITIVE CASH FLOW ON THEIR PORTFOLIO. AND THAT MAYBE GOOD ENOUGH FOR

THEM RIGHT NOW. >> D. SMITH: NOT MOTIVATED.

>> NOT TO REINVEST IN THE BUILDINGS.

WE'RE LOOKING AT BUILDINGS CONTROLS.

WHAT THEY CAN DO, THE PIECES THAT CONTROL THE LIGHTING, THE TEMPERATURE, THAT ALLOW DIFFERENT TENANTS TO HAVE DIFFERENT CONTROLS OVER DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE BUILDING, WE HAD PLUG SMART WE PARTNERED WITH ON THE PACE PROGRAM AND DO AN ANALYSIS. THAT'S ABOUT $150,000 IMPROVEMENT PER BUILDING. THE PROPERTY OWNER IS KIND OF WAITING TO SEE WHAT WE WANT TO DO AS FAR AS A CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS THAT. I TOLD YOU I WAS GOING TO BRING FORWARD A PRESENTATION OR PITCH IN 2020.

WHAT THAT PITCH WOULD LOOK LIKE, I WANT TO HELP THEM AND THEM TO REINVEST AND PUT PRIVATE DOLLARS INTO THOSE BUILDINGS.

TO COMMIT TO CREATING PAYROLL IN EXCHANGE FOR THAT.

I WANT THIS TO BE A LARGER STRATEGY WHERE WE'RE PUTTING DOLLARS INTO THOSE BUILDINGS AND HAVING THEM MATCH EXCEED THAT. THEY NEED TO CREATE PAYROLL IN EXCHANGE. I THINK THAT'S THE APPROPRIATE.

IT HELPS THEM AND US. TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, THEY

[00:30:04]

ARE NOT AS APPROACHABLE AS A LOT OF OUR OTHER PROPERTY OWNERS.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE'RE GOING TO STOP.

I HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT AND WILL CONTINUE TO TARGET THEM.

BUT THEY ARE A CHALLENGE AT THIS POINT.

>> D. SMITH: AND SO I GUESS REAL QUICK, THE OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK. WHILE WE'RE IN THE BUDGET PROCESS ARE THERE TOOLS YOU WISH YOU HAD IN YOUR BAG OF TRICKS WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT TO BETTER SUPPORT YOUR EFFORTS?

>> I APPRECIATE THE PLATFORM. I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL LEARN MORE FROM THIS WILSON BRIDGE SURVEY.

ONE THING THAT DOES COME TO MIND THAT OTHER COMMUNITIES HAVE IS LOW-INTEREST LOAN PROGRAM. THAT'S NOT SOMETHING WE HAVE NOW. BUT WHAT IT WOULD DO IS ALLOW PROPERTY OWNERS LIKE THE FOREIGN PROPERTY OWNER TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS. IT WOULD REMOVE A FINANCIAL OBSTACLE TO DOING SO. THAT WOULD BE AN EXAMPLE OF A TOOL I MAY BRING FORWARD. I DO NOT HAVE THAT FULLY VETTED AT THIS TIME. IT'S NOT A PITCH I'M READY TO MAKE YET. A LOW-INTEREST, RESOLVING-LOAN PROGRAM MAYBE SOMETHING WE TALK ABOUT.

>> D. SMITH: I HAVE A LITTLE EXPERIENCE WITH THAT.

WE DO THAT WITH COUNTIES WHO WANT TO COME TO OUR INSURANCE PROGRAM THAT ARE SELF FUNDED AND UPSIDE DOWN OR UNDERFUNDED.

SO I LIKE THE CONCEPT. I THINK THERE IS MERIT TO THAT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: KIND OF SIMILAR TO RECAP A LITTLE BIT.

>> YES, IT IS. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE

RECAP. >> AND THE FACADE PROGRAM HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THAT REPLICATED ON THE INTERIOR OF THE BUILDINGS.

THAT'S HOW WE'RE GOING O REMAIN COMPETITIVE.

WE'RE N NOT GOING TO KNOCK ON TE BUILDING ON WILSON BRIDGE.

WE'RE GOING TO REDEVELOP THEM. WE EED MORE TOOLS IN THE TOOL BOX. I'M NOT PREPARED YET TO MAKE A PITCH ON THE SPECIFICS OF WHAT THOSE TOOLS MIGHT LOOK LIKE.

>> D. SMITH: THANK YOU. >> D. FOUST: HOW MANY TOTAL BUILDING DOES THE CANADIAN COMPANY OWN?

>> EIGHT OF OUR 12 LARGE OFFICE BUILDINGS.

>> M. GREESON: FINANCE TIME. FOR THE FINANCE BUDGET, THERE ARE NOT VERY MANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IF ANY AT ALL.

WE DID CONSOLIDATE TIME KEEPING UNDER THE FINANCE UMBRELLA.

THAT IS INCREASING SLIGHTLY, JUST ADMINISTRATIVE EASE.

AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, NO REAL SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE BUDGET FROM APPROVED 19 TO 2020. WE'RE FUNDING THE PART-TIME PAY STUDY OUT OF THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT.

THAT IS TAKING PLACE. IN TERMS OF GOALS FOR THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT, WE'RE MOVING FORWARD TO BRING THE CITY'S WATER AND SEWER SURCHARGE ANALYSIS, WE HAVE THAT ABOUT COMPLETED. WE'RE IN 2020, THE EXPIRATION OF OUR BANKING SERVICES. WE HAVE TO PUT OUT RFP FOR BANKING SERVICES IN 2020. PAY CLASSIFICATION ND RATES AND SUBMITTING TO THE GFOA FOR THEIR BUDGET AWARD AND RECEIVE FEEDBACK AND SEE WHAT ADDITIONAL ELEMENTS WE MAY NEED TO ADD.

I'M COVERING LAW BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT TOO MANY SPEAKERS.

LAW HAS NO NOTABLE CHANGES REFLECTED ON THE BAR CHARTS AS WELL. NOTHING SIGNIFICANT HANGING IN THE LAW DEPARTMENT. GOALS IN THE LAW DE DEPARTMENT 0 TO CONTINUE ASSISTANCE WITH THE NORTHEAST GATEWAY PROJECT AND REVIEW AND UPDATE THE GO AHEAD AS APPROPRIATE.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. THIS IS ONE OF THE AREAS THAT IS SEEING SMALL INVESTMENT. WE ADDED $33,505 TO THE COMMUNITY MAINTENANCE LINE TO FOCUS ON DISASTER RECOVERY AND RESTORE CRITICAL SERVICES IN THE CASE OF A DISASTER MORE QUICKLY.

WE FELT THAT WAS AN IMPORTANT TO PLACE TO PUT ADDITIONAL FUNDING.

YOU CAN SEE HERE THE RAMP-UP IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SPENDING OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS AS A RESULT OF HE SSESSMENT THAT WAS DONE. SOME OF THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY 2020 BUDGET GOALS. AGAIN, HIGHLY FOCUSED ON APPROVING THE ABILITY TO RECOVER FROM DISASTER AND SECURITY AND MAKING SURE PEOPLE ARE AWARE NOT TO CLICK WHERE YOU SHOULDN'T CLICK. MATT FOR POLICE.

[00:35:03]

>> JUST TO CONTINUE ON AND TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE DIVISION OF POLICE BUDGET. AGAIN, COMMON THEME HERE, THERE IS NOT A LOT OF CHANGE. AS YOU KNOW, THE BUDGET IS ESSENTIALLY RELATIVELY FLAT OPERATIONALLY, SO WE'RE HIGHLIGHTING RELATIVELY SMALL THINGS.

THERE WAS ONE ITEM RELATED TO OUR LEADS SYSTEM THAT WAS UNDERFUNDED, REFLECTED HERE. PROBABLY THE BIGGER THING S SIX MONTHS OF FULL FUNDING FOR THE TWO ADDITIONAL ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT RELATE TODAY THE DISPATCH TRANSFER.

WHEN WE MOVE THE OPERATIONS OF THE 911 DISPATCH CENTER, THERE ARE RESIDUAL IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS THOSE EMPLOYEES CURRENTLY PERFORM. AND OUR ANALYSIS SHOWED WE'LL NEED TWO FULL-TIME POSITIONS TO FILL THOSE.

THAT'S ONE OF THE MAJOR CHANGES. KIND OF A BUDGETARY CHANGE.

WE MOVED THE POLICE PENSION FUND, I BELIEVE MR. BARTTER, THAT'S THE 12 FUND, IF I HAVE THAT CORRECTLY, INTO THE POLICE

DIVISION BUDGET. >> CORRECT.

TRANSFER OUT OF 1110 AND INTO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT BUDGET TO REFLECT THE EXPENSES IN THE APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENT.

>> YEAH, THE EXPENDITURE SUMMARY.

MOST OF THE CHANGES FROM 2019 TO '20 ARE IN THE PERSONNEL SERVICES AND ADDITIONAL PERSONAL SERVICES AS A RESULT OF THE POSITIONS AND THE N F.O.P. CONTRACT.

HERE IS THE PENSION FUND ON 212. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHY IS

IT EXPECTED TO GO DOWN IN 2021? >> WE'LL HAVE FULLY IMPLEMENTED -- THE DISPATCH IS CURRENTLY FUND UDOUT OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. IN 2021 WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A NET NEGATIVE 7 EMPLOYEES WHEN THAT OCCURS IN 2021 AND WE'LL SEE A SIGNIFICANT DROP IN BUDGETARY SAVINGS.

>> M. GREESON: YOU SEE THAT FROM THE 4.7 TO THE 4.1 MILLION UNDER PERSONAL SERVICES. AGAIN, 911 CALL ANSWERING AND DISPATCH SERVICE, THIS PERMEATED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT DIVISIONS AND DEPARTMENTS. IT'S A MAJOR SIGNIFICANT MOVE.

YOU WILL HEAR COME UP. THE CONTRACTUAL SERVICES ASSOCIATED WITH THAT IN 2020 INCLUDING SOME OF THOSE ARE ONE-TIME COSTS. AND THEN THE FORECASTED AMOUNT IN 2021 ARE REFLECTED HERE. YOU WANTED TO SEE A RETAILS ACCOUNTING. THAT WAS ONE OF THE BUDGETARY REQUESTS YOU MADE IN THE MEMO THAT IS AT YOUR PLACE, THAT IS ONE OF THE QUESTIONS WE ANSWERED.

WE PROVIDED A BREAKDOWN OF EACH OF THE ACCOUNTS WHERE THE DISPATCH TRANSITION IS BEING FUNDED. SEE HERE'S JUST ANOTHER SUMMARY OF THAT. THE END RACK OR NORTHWEST CENTER CONTRACT COST ASSOCIATED WITH THE WORK STATIONS AND MOBILE DATA TERMINAL SOFTWARE, C.A.D. MONITOR AND I.P. CONNECTIVITY, BRINGS IT TO A 2020 TOTAL OF ABOUT $1.2 MILLION.

OUR ORIGINAL BUDGET WAS $107,000 LESS THAN THAT.

AS WE'VE GONE FROM ANALYSIS TO BUDGETING TO HARD NUMBERS, THERE IS COSTS THAT WERE UNDERESTIMATED.

OR HAVE INCREASED BY ABOUT THAT TOTAL ABOUT $107,000 INCLUDED IN THE FINAL BUDGET DOCUMENT. THESE ARE NOW MORE HARD NUMBERS THIS SUPPORTS THIS MOVE YOU APPROVED EARLIER THIS YEAR AND I HAVE CONTRACTED FOR. I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER AS WE TALK ABOUT ALL OF THIS THAT LONG-TERM WE'LL SAVE US RESOURCES. WE EXPECT THE COSTS, UPFRONT COST WITH THE TRANSITION, WE'LL RECOVER THAT IN ABOUT FOUR YEARS. IF I'M RECALLING CORRECTLY.

EVEN WITH THE INCREASE IN COST WE'VE EXPERIENCED MORE RECENTLY.

[00:40:03]

WE CERTAINLY BELIEVE THAT WE WILL IMPROVE OUR LEVEL OF SERVICE. AND HAVE HIGHER LIKELIHOOD OF BEING ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH TECHNOLOGY AS WE TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IN THE YEAR. IN TERMS OF THE POLICE DIVISIONS GOALS, WE HAVE MADE A MAJOR EFFORT TO UPDATE MANY OF OUR POLICIES. AND DOING BOTH THE POLICY UPDATE AND THE TRAINING ASSOCIATED WITH THAT REMAINS A GOAL THAT IS IMPORTANT IN THE DIVISION OF POLICE.

LAWS ARE ALWAYS CHANGING. CASE LAW IS ALWAYS EVOLVING.

AND ONE OF THE CORE RISK MANAGEMENT RESPONSIBILITIES IS TO ENSURE THAT WE KEEP UP WITH POLICY AND THAT OUR OFFICERS HAVE THE TRAINING AND TOOLS TO DO THAT.

OBVIOUSLY, MANAGING THE TRANSITION TO THE NORTHWEST CENTER REMAINS MPORTANT. AS WE'VE TALKED ABOUT BEFORE IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT ROGRAM, THERE IS BOTH AN HVAC SIGNIFICANT RENOVATIONS AND A ROOF PROJECT GOING ON.

SO COORDINATING WITH THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT TO ENSURE EFFECTIVE OPERATIONS WHILE THERE IS A LOT OF BUILDING FACILITIES AND IMPROVEMENTS GOING ON IS GOING TO BE A CHALLENGE.

IN THE FIRE AND EMS DIVISION, LET ME STOP, IS THERE ANY ANY QUESTIONS ON THE DIVISION OF POLICE?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THERE ARE NO NOTABLE CHANGES IN THE BUDGET.

JUST NORMAL PERSONNEL-RELATED INCREASES.

IN TERMS OF WAGES AND HEALTHCARE.

BUT NO OPERATING LINES THAT ARE OF SIGNIFICANCE.

THIS IS THE BUDGET. AS YOU WILL SEE, PARTICULARLY IN THINGS LIKE CAPITAL EQUIPMENT AND CONTRACTUAL SERVICES AND SUPPLIES AND MATERIALS YOU WILL SEE NO CHANGE.

CERTAINLY, HEAR FROM CHIEF BAILOT IF YOU WANT TO.

BUT I'LL BRIEFLY TOUCH ON SOME OF THESE THINGS.

AND HE'S AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS, AS AM I.

THEY TOO ARE HEAVILY INVOLVED IN THE DISPATCH TRANSITION.

THAT IS IMPORTANT TO ENSURING SUCCESSFUL FIRE AND EMS RESPONSE FOR WORTHINGTON RESIDENTS AS WELL AS THOSE IN PERRY, SHARON AND RIVERLY. WE, IF YOU LOOK AT THESE GOALS, I SUMMARIZED THEM OTHER THAN THE SOFTWARE OPTION AS OUR CHIEF IN OUR DIVISION IS CONTINUED TO BE FOCUSED ON TRAINING AND PREPAREDNESS AND OPERATIONAL READINESS.

ANY QUESTIONS ON FIRE AND EMS? NOT A LOT OF BUDGETARY THINGS.

LIKEWISE IN PLANNING AND BUILDING, THE BUDGET ITSELF IS NOT CHANGING IN SUPPLIES, CAPITAL EQUIPMENT OR CONTRACTUAL SERVICES. IT CHANGES SIMILARLY IN THE ADDITIONAL PERSONAL SERVICES IN THE SAME PERCENTAGES AS EVERY OTHER DEPARTMENT. I THINK MORE IMPORTANTLY IN TERMS OF THEIR GOALS, IT'S OBVIOUS THEY DEAL WITH WHAT COMES IN THE DOOR OFTEN. ANYTIME THERE IS A MAJOR APPLICATION OR A PROJECT IN TERMS OF REVIEWING THAT, MANAGING THE CONVERSATIONS BEFORE THE LANNING COMMISSION, AND ARCHITECTURE REVIEW BOARD, YOU SEE THAT WITH ANTHEM, WITH HOPEFULLY THE CONTINUED REVIEW OF BUILDING PERMITS THAT COME IN FROM THE OLIDAY INN SITE. AND UR PLANNING DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN, MR. BROWN, IN PARTICULAR HAS DONE A YEOMAN'S JOB FOR OUR WAY FINDING RECOMMENDATIONS AND THAT IS REFLECTED HERE.

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF IMPLEMENTING THAT WILL CARRY INTO THE NEXT YEAR IS THE NEW WORK MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE. I GUESS BEST DESCRIBED IS ONLINE PERMITTING AND PERMITTING TRACKING WHICH WILL BE A BENEFIT FOR CUSTOMERS AS WELL AS IN TERMS OF OUR INTERNAL EFFICIENCIES AS WELL. YOU SEE THE SITE LIKE ANTHEM AND

[00:45:02]

HOLIDAY INN, IT'S A MAJOR SITE WHERE WE'LL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT REVIEW RESPONSIBILITY IF THAT PLAN MOVES FORWARD.

ANY QUESTIONS ON PLANNING AND BUILDING? OKAY. A COUPLE OF THINGS.

IN OTHER ACCOUNTS, ONE OF THE QUESTIONS YOU ASKED IS REFUSE SERVICES. THAT EXPIRES AT THE END OF 2021.

REFLECTED IN DEPARTMENT 1120. WE DO HAVE OUR RECYCLING CONTRACT, WHICH IS THE, NOT THE COLLECTION OF IT BUT THE MANAGEMENT OF IT WITH RUMKY THAT EXPIRES SOONER THAN THAT AND HAS ONE-YEAR EXTENSIONS. MORE DETAILED ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION IS ALSO INCLUDED IN THE MEMO THAT WE PROVIDED TO YOU.

WE INCREASED, AS YOU DIRECTED, THE 1140 DEPARTMENT, WHICH IS SPECIAL GROUPS BY ABOUT 3%. THAT WILL GIVE A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBILITY FOR THAT GRANT PROGRAM.

ADDITIONALLY, IN OTHER ACCOUNTS, NEXT WEEK YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR FROM THE MCCONNELL ART'S CENTER, THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY, AND THE OLD WORTHINGTON PARTNERSHIP, WHO IS ALSO THE CBB.

IN 1170, THE CURRENT BUDGET HAS $8,600, THE PERCENTAGE THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES A LOT TO THE CBB FROM THE HOTEL, WHICH IS THE ECONO LODGE, BUT YOU WILL RECALL WE ALSO HAVE A FUND BALANCE FOR LACK OF A BETTER TERM OF $111,742.

YOU WILL RECEIVE A BUDGET REQUEST FROM THEM AND HAVE TO ALLOCATE MORE THAN THE 8600, BUT A PORTION OR ALL OF THAT $111,000. AND WE'LL BE TALKING ABOUT THAT NEXT WEEK. AND THEN WE'RE CREATING THE 7710 DEPARTMENT TO ACCOUNT FOR THE DISPATCH CONTRACT TO THE NORTHWEST CENTER. THAT'S AN OTHER ACCOUNT.

P AND NOT IN THE DIVISION OF POLICE BECAUSE DISPATCHING FUNCTIONS SUPPORT REALLY EVERY MAIN OPERATING DEPARTMENT, PARTICULARLY FIRE AND POLICE BUT ALSO THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT AS WELL. THESE ARE THE OTHER ACCOUNTS.

THERE IS NOTHING NOTABLE TO REPORT ON THEM.

I'LL FINISH BY SAYING AT OUR NEXT COUNCIL MEETING WE'LL COVER PARKS AND REC AS WELL AS SERVICES AND ENGINEERING.

AND AS I REPORTED A LITTLE BIT EARLIER, THE COMMUNITY GROUPS THAT RECEIVED THE LARGEST AMOUNT OF FUNDING, WHICH IS THE MAC, THE PARTNERSHIP AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY WILL BE IN TO MAKE PRESENTATIONS. GLAD TO NSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU

MAY HAVE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAVE

A QUESTION. >> THE OTHER ACCOUNTS.

SPECIAL PARKS. >> M. GREESON: I CAN REMIND YOU.

THAT RECEIVES DONATIONS DEDICATED TOWARDS PARK IMPROVEMENTS. ADDITIONALLY, THERE IS A PUBLIC AREA MATCHING EE FOR WHEN THERE IS A BUILDING THAT GETS PUT IN

AND MATCHED BY THE CITY. >> WHEN NEW RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION OCCURS. THAT FEE PER HOUSING UNIT GOES

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COLLECT ED.

>> M. GREESON: FEE FOR LACK OF A >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COLLECT

EXPENDITURES COME OUT OF THAT?- >> M. GREESON: WE'LL PERIODICALLY APPROPRIATE FUNDS WHEN THEY ACCUMULATE TO HELP WITH A PROJECT. TYPICALLY, WE'RE NOT DEVELOPING AS RAPIDLY AS OTHER COMMUNITIES. WE HAVE FEWER RESIDENTIAL STARTS, IF YOU WILL. AND SO THAT ACCOUNT GENERALLY HAS TO ACCRUE FUNDS OVER TIME AND THEN WE MAY BE ABLE TO ELP FUND A PLAYGROUND OR SOMETHING. I DON'T REMEMBER THE LAST THING

WE FUNDED, MR. HURLEY. >> I BELIEVE THE MOST RECENT SITUATION WHERE WE UTILIZED THOSE FUNDS WAS FOR IMPROVEMENTS AT THE OLENTANGY PARK, THE TRAIL HEAD AND THE RESTROOM FACILITY.

[00:50:06]

>> D. ROBINSON: WH >> D. SMITH: WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT THE HOUSE, RENAMING THAT TO THE JOKINGLY LOU GOOREY.

THE CENTER CENTENNIAN, 250 ANNIVERSARY.

BICENTENNIAL IS GONE. LET'S LOOK FORWARD TO THE 2500.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER?

MR. FOUST. >> D. FOUST: ON THE DEPARTMENT 1170 COMMENT, 11742, ALLOCATING THAT, DO WE HAVE EXPECTATIONS HOW THAT MIGHT BENEFIT, NOT JUST DOWNTOWN MERCHANTS BUT THE

BUSINESS COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE? >> I THINK HISTORICALLY THE CONVENTION OF VISITOR'S BUREAU, WHILE THEIR MISSION HAS BEEN TO ATTRACT VISITORS TO THE AREA IN THE ABSENCE OF A HOTEL OR ONLY ONE HOTEL, I SHOULD SAY, THE TRADITIONAL HEADS IN BEDS OF A CBB IS MORE CRITICAL THIS YEAR AND ATTRACTING PEOPLE TO THE COMMUNITY. MOST OFTEN THAT'S BEEN ATTRACTING PEOPLE TO OUR CORE DESTINATION, WHICH HAS BEEN MORE SIGNIFICANT DESTINATIONS FOR PEOPLE VISITING, WHICH IS OLD WORTHINGTON. WE CAN CERTAINLY TALK TO THEM ABOUT THAT AND ASK HOW THEY WOULD PROPOSE TO MARKET THE

BROADER COMMUNITY. >> D. FOUST: I KNOW THIS MAY NOT BE A POPULAR CONCEPT. I DISCUSSED THIS WHEN COLLAPSING THE BB OR WHATEVER, WE HAD OUR CANDIDATES MEETING WITH THE PARTNERSHIP HERE WHAT, PROBABLY SIX WEEKS OR SO.

IF PREPARATION I MET WITH A FEW MERCHANTS ON PROPRIETORS ROAD.

A COUPLE PIANO SHOPS FOR EXAMPLE.

I STOPPED AND ASKED, WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS GROUP OF OURS THAT HELPS THE DOWNTOWN MERCHANTS? THEY HAD NEVER HEARD OF THEM. AND I TRIED TO INTRODUCE SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT. WHAT IF IF -- BOTH THESE PIANO SHOPS FOR EXAMPLE, OFFER LESSONS.

WHAT IF YOU COULD GO DOWN AND ON A WEDNESDAY LIGHT OR ONE OF THOSE OUT DOOR EVENTS, SIT OUTSIDE ONE OF THE DEWEY'S OR WHATEVER, AND HAVE JAZZ, LIVE JAZZ AND A SIGN THAT SAYS, PIANOS AND LESSONS AVAILABLE AT. TO ME THERE IS ALL THESE OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE FOR OTHER BUSINESSES OUTSIDE OF THE IMMEDIATE DOWNTOWN DISTRICT. I DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE DOING WHAT

WE COULD TO SUPPORT THEM. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE QUESTION I ASKED, I HAD BEEN ON THE COMMISSION OF VISITOR BUREAU FROM THE INCEPTION TO THE DEMISE WAS THE GOAL OF THE BUREAU AND THIS IS THE GOAL WE HAD CHARGED IN THE PARTNERSHIP WITH WAS TO BRING IN AND MARKET T TO BRING PEOPLE IN FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY, NOT JUST THE DOWNTOWN AREA BUT TO EXPAND THE MARKETING TO EVENTS AND DIFFERENT THINGS THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY.

ONE OF THE INTERESTING PROBLEMS WE HAVE S THAT THE HOLIDAY INN, THERE IS NO BUILDING UP THERE. THAT WAS ONE OF THE PLACES.

AND THAT DOESN'T HELP. THEN THERE IS NOT MUCH FOR THE MALL. I MEAN, BUT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BRINGING, FOCUSING ON BRINGING CONVENTION OF VISITOR BUREAUS AND BRINGING VISITORS IN.

THAT'S WHAT THE FOCUS HAS BEEN. THE MAIN FOCUS HAS BEEN VISITOR

FOCUS. >> D. FOUST: IF MOM OR DAD ARE BRINGING IN SUZIE FOR THE PIANO LESSON AND THEY GO TO DOWNTOWN TO KILL THE 45 MINUTES AND WONDER THROUGH WORTHINGTON JEWELERS OR DRIVING BACK AND STOP BY FOR A PIZZA ON THE WAY.

IT SEEMS LIKE WE'RE NOT VIEWING OUR BUSINESS COMMUNITY HERE ON

THE GRANDER SCALE. >> THERE IS A MISSED PPORT

OPPORTUNITY. >> R. DOROTHY: I HAPPEN TO BE ON THE BOARD AS OUR LIAISON. IT'S A TRANSITION FROM FOCUSING ON OLD WORD TO FOCUSING ON THE AND THE IMMEDIATE FOCUS WAS ON

[00:55:05]

TOURISM. >> B. KOWALCZYK: THERE IS ABSOLUTELY ROOM TO LOOK AT HOW TO INCORPORATE OTHER BUSINESSES INTO THAT. THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF EXPANDING THE TOURISM FOCUS. IF YOU SEE THE NEW MAPS OF WORTHINGTON INCLUDE THINGS OUTSIDE OF THE OLD WORTHINGTON AREA, INCLUDING THE RAILWAY MUSEUM AND HISTORICAL POINT OF INTEREST AND OTHER THINGS. I THINK THAT'S A NATURAL PROGRESSION FROM WHERE THEY ARE COMING FROM.

AND WE'RE GOING TO HEAR NEXT WEEK THE WAYS THEY EXPANDED FOCUS. I'M CERTAIN WOULD BE WILLING TO ENTERTAIN ANY TERRIFIC IDEAS YOU HAVE FOR INCORPORATING THINGS

LIKE THAT. >> D. FOUST: I SAY THIS NOT AS A CRITICISM. WHEN YOU TALKED ABOUT THE $111,000, BEFORE WE HAND MONEY OVER, I'M LOOKING FOR EXPECTATION OF WHAT IS GOING TO COME OF THAT.

NOT FURTHER PROPPING UP DOWNTOWN WORTHINGTON IN A 2-BLOCK AREA.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I'M CONFIDENT YOU WILL HEAR THAT NEXT WEEK.

AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY TO HEAR WHAT THEY ARE DOING NOW.

THEY ARE WORKING HARD TO PREPARE FOR THAT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: FITS IN. I'M GETTING RESIDENTS WORRIED ABOUT THE DEER POPULATION AND WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THEM.

WE'RE WATCHING IT, CHECKING AND SEEING WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING.

ARE WE GOING TO PUT MONEY OR SOMETHING ASIDE IN THE BUDGET NEXT YEAR THAT'S GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING FOR BEING ABLE TO ADDRESS THE DEER POPULATION BESIDES WATCHING IT AND TELLING

PEOPLE NOT TO FEED THE DEER? >> M. GREESON: WE WILL HAPPY TO REDISTRIBUTE THE RESEARCH THAT WE'VE DONE ON THAT SUBJECT.

WHICH LAYS OUT THE VARIOUS OPTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN EXPLORED BY OHIO COMMUNITIES FOR ADDRESSING THAT ISSUE.

SO WE'LL GET THAT OUT FAIRLY QUICKLY TO EVERYBODY.

SO EVERYBODY IS ON THE SAME PAGE IF YOU DON'T RECALL THAT.

I'M NOT SURE IF I WOULD KNOW HOW MUCH WE WOULD NEED TO ALLOCATE BUDGETARY. I THINK THE QUESTION IS LESS A BUDGET ONE AND MORE OF A REGULATORY OR COMMUNITY JUDGMENT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE WANT TO IMPLEMENT THOSE PROGRAMS THAT WOULD RESULT IN EFFORTS TO CULL THE HERD.

I THINK THE FIRST QUESTION IS AFTER YOU REFRESHED YOUR MEMORY, DO THESE LOOK LIKE THINGS TO FURTHER RESEARCH.

AND TWO, WHAT STEPS WOULD BE NECESSARY.

THEN I THINK WE WOULD GET TO FINANCIAL OPTIONS.

>> AND HAD SUBSEQUENT CONVERSATION WITH FOLKS IN OUR 10 YEARS AGO IN THE SITUATION WE HAVE NOW. AND BY AND LARGE IT WAS A YEAR-LONG COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROCESS THAT LED TO ESSENTIALLY A VOTE OF THE COMMUNITY, WHETHER OR NOT THEY WANTED TO GO TO THE CULLING DIRECTION. I THINK, I MEAN, BUDGETING FOR SOMETHING IN 2020 MAYBE A LITTLE PREMATURE UNLESS FOR OUTREACH PURPOSES. YEAH, DEFINITELY.

>> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD AGREE, MR. SMITH, WITH YOUR APPROACH OF GETTING A LOT OF COMMUNITY FEEDBACK.

I HAVEN'T BEEN GOING DOOR TO DOOR BUT I HAD LOTS OF PEOPLE COME UP TO ME COMPLAINING ABOUT THE DEER.

AND I MEAN, ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES WE BROUGHT THIS UP WE WERE TOLD THAT BY STAFF THAT IT WASN'T THAT BIG OF AN ISSUE UNTIL CARS STARTED ITTING DEER. WE'RE SITTING A LOT OF CARS HITTING DEER. ONE ON 161, WE HAD TO HAVE AN OFFICER PUT A DEER DOWN AFTER A CAR HIT IT.

AND THER INCIDENTS WHERE CARS HIT DEERS.

SO BUT I DO THINK IT'S SOMETHING WE DO HAVE TO HAVE SIGNIFICANT PUBLIC OUTREACH. I THINK MR. SMITH, THAT IS AN EXCELLENT RECOMMENDATION WE LOOK AT HAVING THAT ENGAGEMENT THIS

YEAR. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WANTED TO BRING UP THE FACT IT DOESN'T DISAPPEAR BECAUSE IT'S IMPACTING THE COMMUNITY. WE NEED TO BE REACHING OUT AND TRYING TO ADDRESS THIS. BECAUSE IT'S IN EVERY

NEIGHBORHOOD. >> M. GRE

>> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, THE ODR CONFERENCE IS COMING UP. AND WE'RE SENDING ETHAN TO IT.

[01:00:04]

MR. BARNHARDT I SHOULD SAY, WE'LL WORK TO UPDATE THE RESEARCH BASED ON CURRENT INFORMATION FROM THE OHIO DIVISION OF NATURAL RESOURCES. AS SOON AS WE GET THAT INFORMATION, IF IT'S CHANGED WE'LL SEND OUT THE UPDATED MEMO AND EVERYONE WILL HAVE THE INFORMATION YOU NEED.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I HAD TO STOP THE CAR ON HIGH STREET TO WATCH A FOX GO ACROSS. IT WAS KIND OF INTERESTING.

WILDLIFE IN WORTHINGTON. ANYTHING ELSE? OKAY. MOVING ON.

ANY REPORTS FROM STAFF, MR. GREESON?

[9. Reports of Council Members]

>> M. GREESON: NO, PRESIDENT MICHAEL.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING THIS EVENING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. TH? >> NO THANK YOU.

>> D. ROBINSON: NO, MADAM PRESIDENT.

>> D. FOUST: NOTHING. >> D. SMITH: ELECTION DAY, DON'T

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. DOR OTHY?

>> R. DOROTHY: I TTENDED A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT BOARD MEETINGS, REPRESENTING THE CITY FOR THE MCCONNELL ART'S CENTER.

WE'RE LOOKING AT POTENTIALLY NEW ECONOMIC OR A NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR THAT WILL BE ABLE TO INTRODUCE NEXT WEEK TO US DURING THEIR PRESENTATION. AND THEN WIFA, I'M A PART OF MAYORAL DELEGATION. I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL BE BACK FOR THE NEXT MEETING. DECEMBER WE'LL HAVE A PRESENTATION OF WHAT WE HAD OVER THERE WITH DESSERTS.

AND A LOT OF OTHER PROGRAMS THAT SHOULD BE IN THE LIST THE CITY PUTS OUT WHAT WIFA IS DOING THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. >> M. GREESON: MADAM PRESIDENT, I APPRECIATE COUNCILMEMBER DOROTHY BRINGING THAT UP.

ANN BROWN IS GOING TO SUPPORT THAT.

AND MA MAYOR HOLMES. AND THIS IS THE 20TH YEAR OF THE SIGNING OF THE SISTER CITY RELATIONSHIP. AND SO IT'S AN IMPORTANT YEAR AND IMPORTANT MAYORAL DELEGATION THAT IS

ATTENDING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

>> I HAVE NOTHING. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I ATTENDED THE CENTRAL OHIO MANAGER ASSOCIATION LAST WEEK.

IT WAIT WAS THE LIGHTNING, THEL. ENLIGHTENING.

THEY ARE RUNNING THE LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PROHIBIT OR LIMIT A CITY FROM BEING ABLE TO EXERCISE EMINENT DOMAIN.

IF SOMEBODY IS DEVELOPING A TRAIL.

WHAT WAS REALLY INTERESTING IS IT WAS POINTED OUT THERE CURRENTLY IS A PART OF THE OHIO REVISED CODE THAT SAYS IF SOMEBODY FEELS THE EMINENT DOMAIN IS WRONGLY BROUGHT UP THEY CAN APPEAL TO THE LOCAL CITY COUNCIL OR TOWNSHIP TRUSTIES DEPENDING UPON THE JURISDICTION IN WHICH THEY LIVE.

FOR SOME REASON, THE OHIO LEGISLATURE IS THINKING WE JUST HAVE TO BE ABLE TO BLOCK IT. IT'S GOING THROUGH A WHOLE LOT.

AND IT'S SAD BECAUSE IF YOU ARE TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A TRAIL AND ONE PERSON DOESN'T WANT IT, YOU CAN'T USE EMINENT DOMAIN, HOW DO YOU FINISH THE TRAIL AND HAVE THE CONNECTIVITY WE KNOW SO MANY PEOPLE WANT AND APPRECIATE ACROSS THE STATE.

THAT WAS A BIG W BIG ONE. I JUST WANTED TO BRING THAT UP.

THE CENTRAL OHIO MANAGER ASSOCIATION AS THEY PPROACH 2020 IS GOING TO HAVE A LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.

THESE ARE THE THINGS WE WANT THE LEGISLATURES TO KNOW THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO THE CITIES. SOMEBODY WAS EVEN TALKING ABOUT, THIS IS AN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING, A HOME RULE PROTECTION ACT. SO WE WERE TALKING ABOUT WHAT IT SHOULD BE AS IT COMES FORWARD WHEN WE HAVE SOMETHING TOGETHER, I'LL BRING COPIES OF IT. IT WAS IN A DRAFT PHASE AT THIS POINT. SO WE'RE TRYING TO BRING THE COMMUNITIES TOGETHER. GETTING CLOSER ON THE SUPREME COURT HEARING REGARDING THE COLLECTION, THE ENTRAL COLLECTION. OR HE CHALLENGE OF CENTRAL COLLECTION OF INCOME TAX. PROBABLY GOING TO BE EARLY NEXT YEAR WE GET AN UPDATE, LEGALLY WHAT IS FILED AND WHEN.

THTHERE WERE SEVERAL AMICUS BRIS FILED ON BEHALF OF THE CITY.

IF THE CENTRAL COLLECTION GETS REVERSED, THAT WILL BE EXTRA

[01:05:04]

MONEY THAT COMES INTO BUDGETS BECAUSE IT WON'T GO TO THE A STATE OF OHIO. THAT'S ALL I HAVE.

IS THERE ANYONE ELSE? >> M. GREESON: NEXT WEEK'S

MEETING IS ON TUESDAY BECAUSE OF >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: REMINDI NG EVERYONE TO GO AND VOTE. NO FURTHER BUSINESS, MS. DOROTHY MOVES WE ADJOURN, SECONDED
