[5.A. American Legion - 100th Anniversary of Memorial Day Parade]

PRESENTATIONS. THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY EXCITING TO LEARN ABOUT THE 100TH AN ANNIVERSARY OF WORTHINGTON'S MEMORIAL DAY. MR. GREESON.

>> M. GREESON: GOGOING TO TALK ABOUT THE MEMORIAL DAY PARADE.

ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL EVENTS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND ITS 100TH

ANNIVERSARY. >> MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME TONIGHT. I AM A CODIRECTOR OF THE PARADE.

WORTHINGTON MEMORIAL DAY PARADE. AND THIS IS OUR 100TH YEAR, IF YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT. THE PARADE WAS STARTED IN 1919 BY THE DAUGHTER'S OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.

AND HAS BEEN GOING ON CONTINUOUSLY SINCE THEN.

THAT'S WHERE WE GET OUR NAME. WE HAVE EXCITING NEWS FOR THIS EDITION. WE HAVE THE ALL AMERICAN BAND.

MCDONALD'S ALL AMERICAN ALUMNI BAND.

PEOPLE COMING FROM 33 STATE TODAY MARCH IN OUR PARADE.

IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR WORTHINGTON TO PUT ITS BEST FOOT FORWARD. THIS BAND HAS BEEN IN THE MACY'S DAY PARADE FOR 25 YEARS. THEY HAVE BEEN IN THE ROSE PARADE FOR 12 YEARS. AMONG OTHER TV APPEARANCES STARTED N 1967. SO THAT IS WHERE WE ARE TO DATE, WE HAVE 27 GROUPS SIGNED UP ALREADY TO MARCH IN THE PARADE.

WE USUAL HAVE 100 OR 105. WE'RE LOOKING FOR ANY IDEAS FROM COUNCIL, FROM MEMBERS OF THE CITY LEADERSHIP TO GET ORE YOUTH INVOLVEMENT IN THE PARADE. I'M GOING TO BE TALKING TO PARKS AND REC ABOUT THAT. I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA.

AS WE GET FURTHER AND FURTHER AWAY FROM THE GREAT WARS WE'VE HAD OVER THE YEARS TO BRING THE YOUTH IN TO JUST GET THEM EDUCATED ON WHAT IT ALL MEANS. AND THAT'S ALL I HAVE TONIGHT.

>> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, I WANT TODAY -- TO ADD FROM A STAFF STANDPOINT, IT'S A BLESSING TO WORK WITH THEM.

THEY ARE GREAT ORGANIZERS EACH YEAR.

TO PERFORM AN IMPORTANT FUNCTION HONORING THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIFE IN SERVICE. BUT ALSO TO CARRY ON THIS GREAT WORTHINGTON TRADITION. AND WE'RE THANKFUL FOR THEIR VOLUNTEERISM AND TO WORK WITH THEM.

>> WE'RE THANKFUL TO THE SUPPORT, I WON'T SAY 100 YEARS, BUT INMAJORITY OF THEM. THE POLICE, FIRE, PARKS AND REC.

TO HELP US DO THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

>> THAT'S CORRECT. THE WEBSITE IS OPEN.

YES. WE'RE HOPING FOR A GREAT DAY.

NO RAIN. >> ON EHALF 06 THE CEMETERY, I'M ONE OF THE BOARD MEMBERS. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR HELPING, FOR RGANIZING THE PARADE AND HAVING THE CEREMONY RIGHT AFTER THE PARADE. WHICH DOES TAKE AWHILE.

THE PARADE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR 100 YEARS.

AND USUALLY AROUND A COUPLE HOURS LONG.

I KNOW THE CEMETERY IS TOTALLY REBUILDING THE CIRCLE OF HONOR TO MAKE SURE ITS -- IT DOES HONOR IN WORTHINGTON.

AND THE SURROUNDING COMMUNITY. I KNOW THAT YOU WORK HAND IN

[00:05:04]

HAND WITH ALL THE CEMETERY AND SHARON TOWNSHIP PEOPLE TO MAKE SURE THAT CEMETERY LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.

THE SCOUTS PUT FLOWERS ON THE GRAVES FOR THE PEOPLE WHO SERVED IN THE WARS. AND YES, I WOULD BE AWESOME IF WE HAD MORE YOUTH AND PEOPLE ATTENDING THAT CEREMONIAL AT THE

END OF THE PARADE. >> THAT CEREMONY GETS LOST.

AS THE GROUP PARADE FLOAT GOES BY, PEOPLE TEND TO GO HOME.

I PLAN ON GETTING DOWN THERE FOR THAT AS A PARADE DIRECTOR AND ORGANIZER, WE'RE TIED UP AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PARADE.

BUT I WOULD LIKE TO GET DOWN FOR THIS YEAR FOR THAT.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT TO SEE. ON THAT NOTE, OUR MAYOR, MR. SCOTT HOLMES, AGREED TO BE OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER THIS YEAR. WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT AS WELL. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU.

AND WE THANK YOU -- PRIDE THAT GOES ALONG WITH THAT PARADE.

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I CAN'T TELL YOU THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHEN I GO DOOR TO DOOR, I SAW YOU IN THE MEMORIAL DAY PARADE. THEY MAY KNOW NOTHING ELSE BUT THAT AND -- CITY. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE HAVE THREE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE BACK. RAISE YOUR HANDS SO WE CAN RECOGNIZE YOU. WHAT SCHOOL DO YOU GO TO? THOMAS. WHAT CLASS ARE YOU HERE FOR?

>> VERY RADICAL? IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT ANYTHING, RAISE YOUR HAND, I WILL GLADLY ANSWER OR FILL YOU IN. I KNOW SOME OF THINGS WE HAVE TONIGHT ARE PRETTY EASY TO FOLLOW.

>> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICH AEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AS YOU KNOW WE'RE CONTINUING TO WORK THROUGH THE TRANSITION OF OUR DISPATCH CENTER TO THE NORTHWEST CENTER AND PART OF THAT IS CREATING POSITIONS IN THE DIVISION OF POLICE THAT WOULD PERFORM ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS ONCE THAT OCCURS.

I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MSE MS. TREGO WHO WROTE THE MEMO.

I WASN'T EXPECTED TO BE BACK INTO THE CHAMBERS.

NO, SHE WAS TAKING PICTURES BECAUSE SHE STAFFS THE COMMUNITY RELATIONS COMMISSION OUTSIDE. I WOULD TURN IT OVER TO HER AS SHE'S THE AUTHOR AND HAS BEEN WORKING ON THIS WITH THE

DIVISION OF POLICE. >> AS CITY PREPARES TO TRANSITION OUR 911 DISPATCHINGPG TO ENRACK, THE SUPPORT SERVICES TECHNICIAN IS NEEDED TO TAKE ON ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES PERFORMED

[00:20:01]

BY THE COMMUNICATION TECHNICIANS AND TO PROVIDE ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT FOR POLICE OFFICERS AND THE PUBLIC DURING EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS. THIS RESOLUTION ADOPTS A JOB DISTRIBUTION -- DESCRIPTION, AMEND THE STAFFING CHART, ESTABLISHES PAY RANGE AND PROVIDES A SHIFT DIFFERENTIAL FOR SECOND AND 30 THIRD SHIFT FR THE CITY MANAGER THE DISCRETION TO APPOINT QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS AT STEP C OR D OF THE PAY RANGE.

AS THIS WILL BE OPEN TO OUR CURRENT COMMUNICATION TECHNICIANS. THEY ALL HAVE QUITE A FEW YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. WE THOUGHT THAT WOULD BE WARRANTED. IF THIS RESOLUTION IS ADOPTED, IT WILL ALLOW THE SELECTION PROCESS FOR THE NEW POSITIONS TO BEGIN THIS SPRING IN PREPARATION FOR THE TRANSITION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. RESOLUTION 14-2020 IS PASSED.

[7.C. Resolution No. 15-2020 Job Description - Parks and Recreation Superintendent]

RESOLUTION 15-2020. JOB DESCRIPTION, PARKS AND RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT. ADOPTING A JOB DESCRIPTION FOR ASSISTANT DIRECTOR/PARKS AND RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT AND AMENDING THE STAFFING CHART TO ACCOMMODATE SAID POSITION.

INTRODUCED BY MR. SMITH. MOVED FOR ADOPTION BY MR. MEYERS. SECONDED BY MS. DOROTHY.

MR. GREESON. >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICH AEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AS YOU KNOW WHEN WE'RE -- WE HAVE A VACANCY IN A POSITION OR WE HAVE AN ANTICIPATED RETIREMENT THAT WILL RESULT IN A VACANCY ITS OUR PRACTICE TO REVIEW THE JOB DESCRIPTION. AND ASSESS CURRENT ORGANIZATIONAL NEEDS. AND THEN MAKE CHANGES TO THAT.

MR. HURLEY, THE DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND RECREATION HAS AN IMPORTANT UPCOMING VACANCY AS A RESULT OF A RETIREMENT OF OUR LONG-TIME RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT ANTICIPATED.

HE'S BEEN LOOKING AT SOME OF HIS ORGANIZATIONAL NEEDS.

AND I WANT TOO HIM TALK ABOUT THE RECOMMENDED CHANGE TO THE JOB DESCRIPTION THAT'S BEFORE YOU.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON. MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE OR CROSSED PATH WITH HOLLY KELLER, THE RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT. SHE'LL BE RETIRING AT THE END OF MARCH AFTER A 30-YEAR CAREER IN PARKS AND RECREATION.

WE CONGRATULATE HER. OBVIOUSLY FOR US, THAT'S BAD NEWS. BUT IT'S ALSO AN OPPORTUNITY TO KIND OF ASSESS SOME OPERATIONS. SO WHILE WE'RE NOT ASKING AS A MATTER OF FACT, THE POSITION WILL DECREASE IN SALARY A LITTLE BIT. BUT WE'RE KIND OF RESTRUCTURING HOW IT WILL FUNCTION IN TERMS OF PROVIDING A ITTLE MORE SUPPORT FOR MYSELF AND CURRENTLY IT REALLY FOCUSES ON THE OPERATIONS OF THE COMMUNITY ENTER. THIS TRANSITION WILL KIND OF PULL IT OUT TO OVERSEE THE GRISWOLD ANDP COMMUNITY CENTER TO HELP S OBTAIN CONSISTENCY. AS THINGS EVOLVE AT THE GRISWOLD CENTER, HELP US TO INCORPORATE SOME OF THE YOUNGER SENIORS AND YOUNGER EVEN ADULTS WE WANT TO UTILIZE IN OUR PROGRAMMING OF THAT FACILITY. AND THEN AGAIN, JUST A LOT OF CONSISTENCIES BETWEEN THE TWO BUILDINGS.

SO WE ENVISION THE PARKS AND RECREATION SUPERINTENDENT BECOMING A LITTLE MORE UNIVERSAL.

AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY WE PLAN TO BE BACK TO LOOK AT A COMMUNITY CENTER MANAGER, WHICH WILL BE THE ADAPTATION OF ANOTHER POSITION IN A SECONDARY STEP ON DOWN THE LINE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

PART-TIME AND FULL-TIME PEOPLE? >> 23 PHILANTHROPY POSITIONS THROUGHOUT PARKS AND RECREATION. AS FAR AS PART-TIME AND SEASONAL, IT VARIES DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF THE YEAR.

ANY GIVEN TIME YOU CAN SEE 70 TO 100 ART-TIME STAFF, FLUCTUATING WHEN CAMPS OR SUMMER SEASONAL IN PARKS OR DIFFERENT THINGS OCCUR.

>> R. DOROTHY: I KNOW A LOT OF MOVING PARTS AND MOST PEOPLE ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS THAT ARE OFFERED AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER AND THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WORTHINGTON WITH THE PARKS WE HAVE. AND IT IS A VERY DIFFICULT TASK AND I APPRECIATE THE WORK YOU HAVE DONE AND HOPE THAT YOU HAVE SOME GOOD HELP HERE WITH THE NEW JOB DESCRIPTION.

>> YEAH, I MEAN THERE IS, LIKE I SAID, THERE IS ALWAYS THE CHALLENGE OF REPLACING SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME. BURT IT'S EXCITING OPPORTUNITY FOR STAFF WHO HAVE BEEN IN THEIR POSITIONS FOR A LONG TIME.

WE'RE HOPING FOR A PROMOTIONAL OPPORTUNITY IN THIS TRANSITION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OPPOSED? RESOLUTION 15-2020 IS PASSED.

[7.D. Resolution No. 16-2020 Personnel Rules Amendment - Sexual Abuse and Molestation Prevention Policy]

[00:25:02]

RESOLUTION 16-2020. PERSONNEL RULES AMENDMENT, SEXUAL ABUSE AND MOLESTATION PREVENTION POLICY.

INTRODUCED BY MR. ROBINSON. MOVED SUPERADOPTION BY MR. AUTOMATIC. SECONDED BE MS. KOWALCZYK.

MR. GREESON? >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICH AEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, WE HAVE PROPERTY AND CASUALTY INSURANCE THROUGH SELECTIVE INSURANCE.

THAT'S BEEN OUR LO LONG-TIME PROVIDER.

THEY HAVE HAVE RECOMMENDED TO THE PUBLIC SECTOR ENTITIES IS BEEFING UP OR ADOPTING WHAT WE'RE CALLING A SEXUAL ABUSE AND MOLESTATION PREVENTION POLICY. ESSENTIALLY, A BEST PRACTICE TO ENSURE THAT THOSE TYPE OF ACTIVITIES DON'T OCCUR.

OUR STAFF, MS. TREGO, MR. LINDSEY OR LAW DIRECTOR AS WELL AS MR. HURLEY HAVE WORKED TO DEVELOP THE POLICY THAT IS IN THE AGENDA THIS EVENING. THEY ARE HERE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT IT. IF IT'S ADOPTED, WE'LL SPEND TIME IN THE COMING MONTHS EDUCATING EMPLOYEES ABOUT IT.

AND WORKING TO DO TRAINING ON IT.

SO THAT EVERYBODY IS FAMILIAR WITH IT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY QUESTIONS?

>> B. KOWALCZYK: FIRST OF ALL, HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM NOW? I ASSUME THERE IS TRAINING AND A POLICY IN PLACE NOW.

>> ACTUALLY, THERE ASN'T A POLICY IN PLACE NOW.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: OKAY. >> THIS POLICY DOES MEMORIALIZE SOME OF THE THINGS WE'RE ALREADY DOING.

BACKGROUND CHECKS AND THAT TYPE OF THING.

BUT IT'S MORE COMPREHENSIVE. IT PROVIDES GUIDELINES.

GUIDELINES FOR SUPERVISING MINORS.

AND PRETTY EXTENSIVE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS THAT S MR. GREESON SAID AND VOLUNTEERS OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: SO IN LOOKING THROUGH THIS, I DID NOTICE A REFERENCE TO MANDATORY REPORTING REQUIREMENTS.

AND SPECIFIC TRAINING REGARDING CHILD ABUSE ND NEGLECT.

AND I'M WONDERING IF WE CAN ALSO INCLUDE ELDER ABUSE AND NEGLECT.

BECAUSE THERE ARE MANDATORY REPORTING REQUIREMENTS THAT HAVE BEEN RECENTLY UPDATED THAT DO INCLUDE FIRST RESPONDERS AND POLICE. WE HAVE THE GRISWOLD CENTER AND OTHER REASONS WHY I THINK ELDER ABUSE SHOULD BE INCLUDED AND

PEOPLE TRAINED IN HAT AS WELL. >> I THINK THAT'S A GOOD SUGGESTION. WE MAY LOOK AT WHETHER IT BECOMES PART OF THIS SPECIFIC OR WHETHER WE LOOK TO ADOPT A SEPARATE POLICY, WHICH WOULD INCLUDE MANY OF THE SAME SORT OF FACTORS AND CRITERIA. BUT MIGHT BE A STAND-ALONE ELDER ABUSE GIVEN WE HAVE SIGNIFICANT INVOLVEMENT WITH THE GO TO CENTER WITH THAT POPULATION. I WANT TO PONDER WHETHER IT FITS TO THIS OR WE BRING BACK WITHIN A MONTH OR TWO.

WE'LL SEE WHAT OTHER CITIES HAVE DONE ON THE ELDER SIDE.

>> R. DOROTHY: I HAD A QUESTION ABOUT THE CITY AND REPORTING, HOPEFULLY WITH HAVING PEOPLE B BE MORE COGNIZANT OF THE MOLESTATION AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING, ESPECIALLY IN OHIO IS ONE OF HE BIGGEST HUMAN TRAFFICKING PLACES.

ALSO WHEN WE HAVE BIG CONFERENCES COMING INTO COLUMBUS, THERE IS TRAFFICKING THAT STARTS WITH VERY YOUNG PEOPLE. I'M JUST, I AM HAPPY THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TRAINING AND HOPE THAT WE CAN HELP MORE PEOPLE IF THEY GET RECOGNIZED IN THE COMMUNITY THAT THIS IS HAPPENING TO THEM. IT'S DEFINITELY HAPPENING IN OUR COMMUNITY ALL AROUND US. AND THE MORE PEOPLE ARE AWARE, THE MORE WE CAN REACH OUT AND HELP THOSE AROUND US, THE BETTER WE'LL ALL BE. BUT I'M VERY GLAD WE'RE GOING TO HAVE MORE EDUCATION ABOUT THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR AND HOPEFULLY HELP PREVENT IT AND GET PEOPLE THE HELP THEY NEED.

>> I WANT TO NOTE THAT A LOT OF THESE POLICIES WERE TAKEN FROM SOME OF OUR EXISTING POLICIES, SUCH AS OUR SUMMER CAMP MANUALS AREAS. A LOT OF THESE THINGS, WHILE MAYBE NOT AS COMPREHENSIVE AND FORMAL ALL IN ONE PLACE, HAVE BEEN POLICIES AND CERTAINLY TRAINING HAS EXISTED WHEN IT COMES TO DETECTING CHILD ABUSE AND THE REPORTING PROCEDURE AND

[00:30:01]

ALL OF THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED?

[8.A.I. Permission to Bid - Community Center Swimming Pool Diamond Brite Replacement]

PERMISSION TO BID THE COMMUNITY CENTER, POOL, DIAMOND BRITE.

[00:35:04]

>> M. GREESON: WE HAVE A BUNCH OF ITEMS WE'RE INTRODUCING FOR PUBLIC HEARINGS IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

IN THIS PARTICULAR ISSUE OU INCLUDED, IT'S A CAPITAL ITEM YOU CAN ACT ON TONIGHT. THIS WOULD GIVE US PERMISSION TO BID REPLACING THE DIAMOND BRITE SURFACE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE POOL. AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER.

WHICH IS AN ITEM THAT WAS INCLUDED IN YOUR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. I BELIEVE AND MR. HURLEY CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG. THIS WILL COMPLETE THE EMAINDER OF THE LEISURE POOL. AND I BELIEVE WE DID THE LAZY RIVER LAST YEAR. AND IF THE BIDS ARE GOOD AND SUFFICIENT, THEN WE WOULD ALSO DO THE LAP POOL.

WE'LL BE GLAD TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE GOAL WOULD BE THE POOL IS SHUT DOWN FOR TWO WEEKS, SO IT WOULD OCCUR DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME IN LATE AUGUST, EARLY

SEPTEMBER. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> D. ROBINSON: A FEW QUESTIONS.

WHAT IS THE EXPECTED LIFE? LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THIS TYPE OF

SURFACE. >> I THINK AS YOU LOOK AT IT, A LOT OF THAT DEPENDS ON THE USAGE.

THE 15 TO 20 YEAR RANGE IS THE LIFE EXPECTANCY.

WITH THE POOL OPENING IN 2003, WE'RE RIGHT ABOUT THERE WITH

ABOUT 17 YEARS. >> D. ROBINSON: HOW MANY VENDORS

PROVIDE THIS KIND OF A SERVICE? >> WELL, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A CHALLENGE. THERE ARE LOTS OF VENDORS THAT BUILD POOLS. BUT GETTING VENDORS THAT WANT TO ESPECIALLY ON A NARROW TIMEFRAME AND DO THIS, ALBEIT, IT'S A LARGE NUMBER, BUT IN TERMS OF THE WORK, A SMALLER AMOUNT OF WORK IS A BIT OF A CHALLENGE. WHEN WE HAVE DONE SMALLER PATCHING AND WORK, IT'S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

WE'RE HOPING A SIZE OF THIS PROJECT WILL DRAW MORE INTEREST.

BUT THERE AREN'T A LOT. I CAN'T QUANTIFY EXACTLY.

BUT THE PROBLEM IS A LOT OF THE POOLS ARE WANTING THIS WORK.

THE INDOOR POOLS WANT THE WORK AT THIS TIMEFRAME BECAUSE KIDS GO BACK TO SCHOOL. AND THE OUTDOOR POOLS WANT IT BEFORE THEY OPEN. THEY ARE ALL IN HIGH DEMAND AT

THE TIME YOU WANT THE WORK DONE. >> D. ROBINSON: ARE WE ABLE TO

OBTAIN WARRANTIES? >> TYPICALLY ON'T.

THE WORK ITSELF IS FAIRLY EASY TO INSPECT.

BECAUSE IT'S REALLY ALMOST LIKE THE PROCESS IS ALMOST LIKE A CEMENT WORK IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THAT.

IT'S ON THE WALLS AND FLOOR OF THE POOL.

LITERALLY PUTTING A COUPLE OF COATS OF DIAMOND BRITE MATERIAL ON. SO WE'RE ABLE TO QUICKLY TELL.

WE GET A ONE-YEAR WARRANTY. IN TERMS OF WHETHER IT LASTS 10 OR 15 YEARS, IT'S NOT AN ISSUE. IT'S MORE IS THAT INITIAL APPLICATION GOOD OR INITIAL PROBLEMS OR CLOUDINESS OR IT

DIDN'T ADHERE. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DOES THIS HELP US PRESERVE THE FACILITY

>> WELL, NOT NECESSARILY. I MEAN I GUESS, WHAT IS BEHIND THE DIAMOND BRITE WOULD BE FINE. PART OF IT AESTHETICS.

PART OF IT IS IMPACTS HOW THE POLLOCKS.

BECAUSE THE POOL AND THINGS THAT COME THROUGH THE DIAMOND BRITE IMPACT THE LOOK OF THE POOL. AND CERTAINLY SAFETY BECAUSE ONCE YOU HAVE BAD DIAMOND BRITE IT'S EBRASIVE AND YOU GET CUTS ON FEET. YOU WOULDN'T WANT A POOL WITHOUT IT. BUT IT'S MORE JUST A PROTECTIVE COATING THAT HELPS THE SWIMMERS AND THE FEEL OF THE POOL LIKE IN THE LAZY RIVER IN THE ZERO DEPTH AREAS AND HE HELPS WITH AESTHET.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? IF NOT, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN.

OKAY. I'M SURE WE'LL SEE THE BIDS WHEN

THEY COME BACK, CORRECT? >> YES, MA'AM.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL RIGHT.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER REPORTS FROM STAFF?

>> M. GREESON: JUST A COUPLE OF THINGS.

FIRST, A LITTLE DELAY DIDN'T GET THE QUARTERLY REPORTS OUT.

SO THERE IS ONE BEFORE YOU. SECOND THING IS WE'RE PLANNING DOING WORK ON PLANNING THE COUNCIL RETREAT.

[00:40:03]

AND WANTED TO TALK ABOUT START TIMES AND FOR BOTH DAYS, SO WHAT WE WOULD PROPOSE IS A FRIDAY AT 5:30 START TIME.

AND THEN SATURDAY AT ABOUT 8:30. MR. JENKINS OUR FACILITATOR HAS BEEN INTERACTING WITH YOU. AND PUTTING TOGETHER A MORE DETAILED AGENDA. WE WANTED TO PUT THOSE START TIMES OUT AS WELL AS KIND OF A HARD STOP FOR SATURDAY, NO LATER THAN 3:00. HOW DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU ALL?

>> D. ROBINSON: HOW ABOUT A HARD STOP ON FRIDAY EVENING?

>> M. GREESON: WE'RE ALL FOR THAT.

WE'LL HAVE TO DETERMINE WHAT THAT IS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

MIC] >> M. GREESON: YES.

WILL NOT BE DOING THAT. >> R. DOROTHY: THE PUBLIC IS WELCOME TO COME AND PARTAKE TOO. YES.

>> M. GREESON: THAT'S JUST A LITTLE RETREAT PLANNING.

I ALSO WANTED TO FORECAST SOME COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE CONVERSATIONS. FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PUBLIC, THE COMMUNITY OF THE WHOLE MEETINGERIZES -- ARE THE SECOND MEETING OF THE MONTH. THEY DON'T HAVE SCHEDULED PUBLIC HEARINGS. LEGISLATION WE'RE ACTING ON.

MORE ISSUES THAT ARE POLICY ISSUES THAT THE COUNCIL WANTS TO DELIBERATE ON A LITTLE MORE AND WHAT YOU MIGHT CALL A WORKSHOP FORMAT. SO NEXT WEEK, I WANT TO TRYING TO PREPARE SOME INFORMATION TO CONTINUE OUR CONVERSATION ABOUT A JOINT RECREATION DISTRICT. AND MR. HURLEY AND POD DESIGN ARE GOING TO BE PREPARED TO TALK A LITTLE MORE DETAIL ABOUT WHERE WE ARE WITH MCCORD PARK AND THE DESIGN PROCESS FOR MCCORD PARK. AND THEN I WANT TO FORECAST INTO APRIL. JUST TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THESE GENDA ITEMS. I BELIEVE, AND MR. WHITED WILL BE READY TO HAVE OUR CONSULTANTS TALK ABOUT OUR PRELIMINARY RESULTS FROM OUR WATERLINE STUDY. I KNOW EVERYBODY IS EXCITED ABOUT THAT. RIGHT?

>> YES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL:

] >> M. GREESON: AND ALSO, WE'LL BE DISTRIBUTING AN ANALYSIS THAT WAS DONE OF RUSH RUN AND HAVE BOTH STRAND AND I BELIEVE SUSTAINABLE STREAMS TO TALK ABOUT THE PROJECT IN THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.

TWO FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT ITEMS FOR APRIL.

IF THAT'S OKAY WITH EVERYBODY ELSE. AND I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE FOR THE GOOD OF THE ORDER EXCEPT FOR MR. LINDSEY AND I WOULD EXECUTIVE AN COMPETITIVE SESSION -- EXECUTIVE SESSION, ONE IS PENDING LEGISLATION, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND EMPLOYMENT AND COMPENSATION OF PERSONNEL.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: EXECUTIVE SESSION. WE CAN'T MAKE DECISIONS BUT WE CAN DISCUSS. IF THERE IS PENDING LEGISLATION AND A LAWYER NEEDS ADVICE AS TO WHICH SIDE OUR SIDE, WHAT COURSE WE SHOULD TAKE, WE DON'T WANT TO HAVE THAT IN PUBLIC BECAUSE WHOEVER IS ON THE OTHER SIDE CAN HEAR THE DEBATE.

NOW THE FINAL DECISION, THAT IS PUBLIC AND HAS TO BE-- THEY CALL IT THE SUNSHINE LAWS BECAUSE YOU MAKE THE DECISIONS IN THE LIGHT OF DAY. BOARD AND COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS IF E TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH WE'RE GOING TO PAY OR WHO WE'RE APPOINTING, YOU DON'T WANT THE DEBATE IN THE PUBLIC.

WHEN WE MAKE A DECISION IT IS VERY PUBLIC AS TO WHO WE'VE CHOSEN. AND SO AND THESE ARE -- THERE ARE VERY SPECIFIC AREAS BY CODE. THE ONE WE CAN GO O EXECUTIVE SESSION WE CAN DISCUSS SOMETHING AND MAKE NO DECISIONS OR MAKE A DECISION AND COME BACK OUT AND ANNOUNCE OUR DECISION.

[00:45:01]

USUALLY, WE HAVE A DISCUSSION AND A LOT OF TIMES HAVE STAFF PREPARE A RESOLUTION THAT WILL LET EVERYONE KNOW THIS IS WHAT THE COUNCIL DECIDED. THAT'S WHAT THE SUNSHINE LAWS ARE ND WHAT EXECUTIVE SESSION IS ABOUT.
