[00:00:03]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THE APRIL 13TH MEETING OF THE WORTHINGTON CITY COUNCIL TO ORDER.

MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL?

>> R. DOROTHY: HERE. >> B. KOWALCZYK: HERE.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: HERE. >> D. ROBINSON: PRESENT.

>> D. SMITH: HERE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HERE.

WILL EVERYONE PLEASE RISE TO SAY THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: PLEASE SEE SEATED.

OKAY, ARE THERE ANY VISITOR COMMENTS WE'VE RECEIVED THAT ARE, THAT HAVE NOT BEEN, THAT ARE NOT SUBJECT THAT'S ON THE AGENDA TONIGHT? MS. THRESS, HAVE YOU RECEIVED

ANYTHING? >> D. KAY THRESS: THERE ARE

NONE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: BECAUSE WE'RE MOVED DUE TO THE PANDEMIC AND NATIONAL STATE WIDE ORDER TO STAY HOME, WE'RE USING VIRTUAL MEANS OF BEING ABLE TO CONDUCT OUR CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS. INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN SENDING COMMENTS OR CALLING IN COMMENTS WE'RE GOING TO PUT UP ON THE SCREEN THE NUMBER YOU CAN CALL, OR EMAIL THE COUNCIL AT WORTHINGTON.ORG OR USE, CALL THE PHONE NUMBER WE'RE GOING TO PUT ON THE SCREEN. IF YOU DO THAT, UNDERSTAND, IT TAKES ABOUT 30 SECONDS TO A MINUTE FOR US TO GET THINGS THROUGH. WE'LL DO OUR PRESENTATIONS FIRST AND THEN IF THERE ARE ANY COMMENTS REGARDING THE PARTICULAR TOPIC THAT PEOPLE HAVE SENT IN.

WE'LL DO THE PRESENTATIONS. WE'LL DO COUNCIL COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS AND THEN ANYTHING FROM THE PUBLIC.

JUST TO LET PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE ORDER AND HOW WE'RE MOVING

[5. Approval of the Minutes]

THROUGH THE COMMITTEE TO HAVE THE WHOLE MEETING.

FIRST ON THE AGENDA IS APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES.

MR. ROBINSON, WILL YOU MOVE WE MOVE THE MINUTES OF MARCH -- REMOVE THE MINUTES OF MARCH 9 FROM THE TABLE.

>> D. ROBINSON: I MOVE WE REMOVE THE MINUTES OF MARCH 9 FROM THE

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. BUC HER, WOULD YOU SECOND.

>> P. BUCHER: SECOND. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF REMOVING THE MINUTES OF MARCH 9 FROM THE STABLE, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. ANYONE OPPOSED? OKAY. MR. ROBINSON, I'M ASSUMING YOU WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THAT WE APPROVE THE AMENDMENTS TO THE MINUTES THAT YOU HAD SENT OUT, IS THAT TRUE?

>> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. SMI

TH, WILL YOU SECOND THAT? >> D. SMITH: YES, SECOND.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. NOW WE'RE OPEN FOR COUNCILMEMBER DISCUSSIONS. COUNCILMEMBERS, THOSE WHO ARE WATCHING ONLINE THIS WAS PART OF THE AGENDA ON THE CITY'S WEBSITE. IF YOU WANTED TO SEE EXACTLY ALL THE LANGUAGE THAT'S TWO AND A HALF PAGES, YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO TAKE A LOOK. FOR COUNCILMEMBERS, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT APPROVING THIS MOTION TO AMEND

THE MINUTES. >> R. DOROTHY: I WOULD LIKE TO AMEND THE STATEMENT THAT I HAD IS CATEGORIZED AS INTERJECTION.

I THINK I WAS ANSWERING THE QUESTION MR. BEATS ASKED IF YOU GO THROUGH THE VIDEO WITH ACCOMPANYING CLOSED CAPTION DIALOGUE NEXT TO IT. I WAS ANSWERING THE QUESTION MR. EVERY OTHER PERSON IN THE SUMMARY STATED, I DON'T THINK I INTERJECTED. I STATED A RESPONSE.

>> D. ROBINSON: CAN WE MAKE THE CHANGE MADAM PRESIDENT, I

CONCUR. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: NO PROBLEM. ANYBODY OBJECT TO MAKING THE CHANGE? HEARING NO OBJECTIONS, THE CHANGE IS APPROVED. ARE THERE ANY OTHER THOUGHTS OR COMMENTS REGARDING THE AMENDED MINUTES.

AMENDMENT TO THE AMENDMENTS. HEARING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF AMENDING THE MINUTES AS SENT OUT, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

[00:05:03]

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. NOW THE MINUTES HAVE BEEN AMENDED, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF APPROVING THE MINUTES OF MARCH 9 AS AMENDED PLEASE SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

OPPOSED LIKE SIGN. OKAY.

THE AMENDED MINUTES HAVE BEEN APPROVED.

[6.A.I. Rush Run Stream Study]

WE'RE GOING TO MOVE ONTO THE RUSH RUN STREAM STUDY.

AND I'M GOING TO TURN THE MEETING OVER TO MR. GREESON.

>> M. GREESON: GOOD EVENING, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, I HOPE EVERYBODY CAN HEAR AND SEE ME.

THIS IS A COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING FOR FOLKS LISTENING OR WATCHING ONLINE. TYPICALLY IN THE COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETINGS WE WORK THROUGH MORE SUBSTANTIVE TOPICS, WE DON'T NECESSARILY TAKE ACTION.

WE DON'T NECESSARILY TAKE ACTION.

HOWEVER, WE DO WORKSHOP, WORK SESSION AND DISCUSSION SUBSTANTIVE ITEMS. IN THIS CASE, WE HAVE TWO IMPORTANT STUDIES THAT THE CITY HAS BEEN CONDUCTING.

BEING PRESENTED TO COUNCIL TONIGHT.

AND THE FIRST ONE IS THE RUSH RUN STREAM TUDY.

WHERE WE HIRED SUSTAINABLE STREAMS. AND YOU WILL HEAR FROM DR. HAWLEY TONIGHT.

BEFORE YOU DO, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO DAN WHITED AND HE'LL INTRODUCE THE SUBJECT. OUR SERVICE AND ENGINEERING DIRECTOR, THAT IS. AND AS WELL AS THE CONSULTANTS

THAT WORKED ON THIS ITEM. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL.

I'M PRETTY EXCITED TO PRESENT THESE, BOTH THESE REPORTS.

THIS FIRST PRESENTATION S BY DR. HAWLEY.

WHO WORKED WITH STRAND AND ASSOCIATES, BOTH TOGETHER ON THE PROJECT. IT WAS NOT AN ENGINEERING STUDY.

IT WAS AN EVALUATION OF THE EROSION CONDITIONS WITHIN THE STREAM AND WHAT MIGHT BE ABLE TO BE DONE TO MITIGATE THOUGHT FROM A HIGH LEVEL. DR. HAWLEY WILL DESCRIBE THAT AND POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS OR POTENTIAL TO BE RECOMMENDING AS A RESULT OF THIS. SO WITH THAT, I'LL TURN IT OVER

TO DR. HAWLEY. >> ALL RIGHT.

LET ME GET ME PRESENTATION SHARED.

THERE WE GO. TOOK A MINUTE TO COME UP.

HOW DOES THAT LOOK? EVERYONE SEE THAT OKAY?

>> D. ROBINSON: I DO. >> THANK YOU.

WELL, APPRECIATE EVERYONE BEARING WITH US AS WE DO THIS REMOTE MEETING. THANKS FOR THE INTRODUCTION, DAN, AND THANK TODAY THE COUNCILMEMBERS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH CITY OF WORTHINGTON.

AS DAN MENTIONED, I'M DAN HOLLY, THE PRINCIPAL AT STREAMS AND CHRIS RUST WILL BE JOINING ME ON THE PRESENTATION.

WE WORKED CLOSELY TOGETHER ON NUMEROUS PROJECTS.

AND HE'LL --

>> ANYONE THAT IS INTERESTED IN MORE DETAIL SEE THE MEMO PRETTY THICK APPEND SEAS, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MORE DETAIL.

AND OF COURSE ON THE AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS AT THE END.

AS DAN MENTIONED, THIS WAS KIND OF A HIGHER VIEW ASSESSMENT OF THE ENTIRE REACH OF RUSH RUN. HERE WE HAVE HUNTLEY TO GET EVERYONE'S BEARINGS. RUNNING NORTH SOUTH IS THE RAILROAD. AND STATE ROUTE 161 EAST TO WEST. AND RUSH UN FLOWS FROM THE NORTHEAST TOWARDS THE SOUTHWEST THROUGH TOWN.

AND YOU SEE IS THAT AS YOU GET CLOSER FARTHER DOWNSTREAM CLOSER TO THE OLINTANGY BASE LEVEL FOR THE TREME, THAT LEAVES LESS ELEVATION FOR THE STREAM TO DROP AND THEREFORE BANKS ARE SHALLOW AND BANKS TEND TO BE GENTLE AND WELL VEGETATED.

UP STREAM OF MCCOY, THE BANKERIZE QUITE TALL.

YOU SEE LOTS OF HILL SLOPES AND THE STREAM IS QUITE A BIT

[00:10:02]

THROUGH THE VARIOUS DECADES. THERE IS A NICE WIDE BUFFER BETWEEN THE STREAM AND STRUCTURES.

THE STRUCTURES AREN'T AS CLOSE TO THE STREAMS AS IN OTHER REGIONS. ZOOMING INTO TO THIS MCCOY TO SOUTH STREET, EAST SOUTH STREET, THAT'S THE NEXT SLIDE HERE.

WE LOOK AT TOOK A LOOK AT THE REACH, AS YOU MOVE FROM SOUTH STREET, YOUR BANKS ARE TALLER BECAUSE YOU MOVING FARTHER UPSTREAM FROM THE ROAD CROSSING. AND THE BANKS END TO BE TALLER AND MORE UNSTABLE AS YOU GET FARTHER UP STREAM, UP TOWARDS MCCOY AVENUE. IT DEPENDS ON HOW CLOSE YOU ARE TO THE HILL SLOPE AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

BUT IN GENERAL THE INSUSTAINABILITY INCREASED UP STREAM FROM EAST/SOUTH AND SO ONE COULD ASK THE QUESTION, WHY DOES SECTIONS OF RUSH RUN EXHIBIT SO MUCH EROSION? AND WE GET HIRED TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION FOR CITY AND MUNICIPALITIES. WE LIKE TO BEGIN BY CAN I REMINDING PEOPLE, STREAMS IN A SUBURBAN WATERSHED ARE BASICALLY ADJUSTING TO A LOT MORE RUN OFF THAT DIDN'T USED TO OCCUR.

THE RAIN USED TO HIT THE TREE LEAVE AND GET INTERCEPTED BY THE LEAVES AND MAKE ITS WAY INTO THE TOP SOIL AND SOAK INTO THE GROUND AND SLOWLY MAKE ITS WAY TO THE STREAM.

WITH OUR HOUSES AND ROADS, THE SEALED SURFACES DEFLECT THAT WATER AND ROUTE IT QUICKLY O THE STREAM.

OUR STREAMS TEND TO BECOME, THEY TEND TO ADJUST.

AND I USE THIS ANALOGY. LIKE IF YOU PUT MORE CALORIES IN YOUR BODY THAN IT CAN USE, YOUR SYSTEM CHANGES AND BODY ETS A LITTLE BIT HEAVIER. WE PUT MORE WATER IN THE STREAMS, THE STREAMS ADJUST TO THAT ADDITIONAL WATER AND THEY DO THAT BY GETTING LARGER. THIS STUDY INCLUDED ABOUT 60 STREAMS. THE STREAMS IN SUBURBAN WATERSHEDS ERODE AT ABOUT 10 TIMES THE RATE OF THE RURAL STREAMS WHICH TEND TO ERODE AT NOMINAL RATES.

THAT'S WHY RUSH RUN IN GENERAL IS GETTING LARGER AND HAVING MORE EROSION. FOLKS ALWAYS ASK, WHAT ABOUT CONVENTIONAL DETENTION BASINS? AREN'T THEY SUPPOSED TO HOLD BACK WATER AND HELP POTENTIALLY AGAINST THAT.

AND THE REASON THAT CONVENTIONAL DETENTION BASINS DON'T HELP HOLD OR MITIGATE EROSION IS THEY ARE OFTEN EMPTY BECAUSE CONVENTIONAL DETENTION DOESN'T START TO ATTENUATE FLOW UNTIL YOU GET TO THE VERY LARGE STORMS, WHAT WE CALL ENGINEERING DESIGN STORMS LIKE THE TWO-YEAR STORM AND HIGHER.

WE WHERE WE WANT TO HOLD BACK WATER FOR FLOOD CONTROL PURPOSES. PRETTY MUCH ALL THE STORMS ARE LESS THAN THAT TWO-YEAR VOLUME. SO ET'S TAKE .3-INCH EVENT, .3 INCHES IN AN HOUR IS REALLY MILD RAIN EVENT IN MOST UNDEVELOPED WATERSHEDS. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN A DEVELOPED WATERSHED. AND FOR COMPARISON, SIMILAR SIZED WATERSHED, SIMILAR SIZED STORM AND YOU SEE THIS STREAM HAT LITTLE WATER IN IT BECAUSE IN THIS REFERENCE WATERSHED, WE GET OUR RAINFALL, IT HITS THE LEAVES AND SOAKS INTO THE TOP SOIL AND SLOWLY MAKES ITS WAY DOWN SLOPE.

AND FINALLY THREE HOURS AFTER THE RAINFALL WE GET A SMALL BLIP IN THE DEPTH OF THE WATER IN THE STREAM.

AND THAT, YOU KNOW, RAISED THE WATER SURFACE BY ABOUT THREE INCHES OR SO. AND THAT'S WHEN THE PHOTO WAS TAKEN. VERY DIFFERENT RESPONSES IN OUR SUBURBAN VERSUS URBAN WATERSHEDS.

AND WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT STREAM EROSION WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT WHAT IS THE DISCHARGE OR THE FLOW OF WATER THAT INITIATES THE MOVEMENT OF PARTICLES ON THE BED.

BECAUSE ALL STREAMS HAVE A DISCHARGE THAT ONCE YOU GET HIGHER THAN THIS DISCHARGE, THE PARTICLES BECOME MOVED.

THEY BECOME MOBILIZED, ENTRAINMENT.

AND THAT'S WHEN EROSION BEGINS. AND IF YOU LOOK AT A CONVENTIONALLY DESIGNED DETENTION BASIN, THIS BLUE CURVE IS THE PREDEVELOPED CURVE. THIS IS HOW MUCH WATER IS

[00:15:06]

FLOWING VERSUS TIME UNDER PREDEVELOPED CONDITIONS.

THIS IS FOR THE TWO-YEAR DESIGN STORM.

UNDER POST DEVELOPED CONDITIONS HERE'S HOW MUCH WATER IS UNRUNNING OFF ROOFS AND GETTING TO THE DETENTION BASIN.

THAT'S THE INFLOW. THE OUTFLOW IS THE GREEN CURVE.

WE'RE NOT EXCEEDING THE PEAK THAT WE HAD UNDER THE PREDEVELOPED CONDITIONS BUT WE MADE THE DURATION A LOT LONGER BECAUSE WE AVE A LOT MORE VOLUME TO DEAL WITH.

OUR CRITICAL DISCHARGE ON THIS STREAM IS RIGHT HERE.

THE DASHED LINE. IF YOU COMPARE THE AREAS UNDER THOSE CURVES, BASICALLY THE AREA BETWEEN THE CURVE AND DASHED LINE, WE HAVE A LOT MORE TIME ABOVE THAT CRITICAL DISCHARGE.

THEREFORE, WE HAVE A LOT MORE EROSION THAT OCCURS IN OUR SUBURBAN WATERSHEDS WITH CONVENTIONAL DETENTION.

LET'S THINK ABOUT THIS. AS IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT THE STREAM FROM THE SIDE. AND KIND OF WATCHING THE PARTICLES ON THE BED. AND LET'S SAY WE GET AN EVENT THAT EXCEEDS THE CRITICAL DISCHARGE AND MOVES SOME OF THE PARTICLES AND MAYBE A FEW PARTICLES ARE REPLACED FROM PARTICLES FROM UPSTREAM. WELL, YOU KNOW, OUR CONVENTIONAL DETENTION WE DO IT OVER AND OVER FOR LONGER AND LONGER AND YOU HAVE THE ORIGINAL STREAM BED AND A DEEPER AND OBVIOUSLY ORE UNSTABLE AND WIDER STREAM. THAT'S WHAT THE BLACK LINE REPRESENTS. AND THE KIND OF PIVOT POINTS OR FULCRUM OF THE STREAM GETTING DEEPER TENDS TO BE AROUND WHAT WE CALL THE CHANNEL POINTS OR BASE LEVEL.

THAT'S WHY THE FARTHER UP STREAM FROM THE HARD POINT OR BASE LEVEL LIKE WITH OLENTANGY, THE DEEPER YOUR STREAM CAN GET.

THAT'S WHY OUR BANKS TEND O BE MUCH LARGER FURTHER AND FURTHER UP STREAM FROM A HARD POINT.

WE'RE LOOKING TO LOOKING AT CARTOONS STANDING AT THE STREAM AND LOOKING DOWN. HERE'S OUR ORIGINAL STREAM.

EQUILIBRIUM CHANNELS. IT MADE THE BANKS TALLER.

AS THEY BECOME TALLER AND STEEPER, THEY BECOME UNSTABLE THAT LEADS TO BANK FAILURE AND EROSION.

AND EVENTUALLY, THE BANKS BECOME SO WIDE BECAUSE THIS BANK FAILED BUT IT'S STILL UNSTABLE CONDITIONS SO IT WIDENS MORE.

AND EVENTUALLY IT'S GO WIDE YOU STARTED TO DEVELOP PILES OF SEDIMENT AT THE TOES OF THE BANKS.

AND OVER LONG ENOUGH PERIODS OF TIME AND AFTER EATING UP A WHOLE LOT OF CHANNEL OR OF PROPERTY AND SOIL, WE CAN RETURN TO AN EQUILIBRIUM CONDITION WHERE THE STREAM IS FLATTER, IT HAS A NEW FLOODPLAIN BUILT AND IT'S RETURNED TO STABILITY.

THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF INSTABILITY FROM THIS POINT TO THIS POINT. YOU CANNOT MAKE A STREAM DEEPER WITHOUT ERODING THE PARTICLES ON THE BED.

WHEN YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT DESIGN TO HOLD BACK WATER IT'S IMPORTANT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE CRITICAL DISCHARGE IS FOR THE STREAM SYSTEM. AND TAYLOR CONTROLS TO MEET THAT CRITICAL DISCHARGE. SO WE COLLECT DATA ON RUSH RUN.

AND WE HAVE OUR CRITICAL DISCHARGE ESTIMATE FOR RUSH RUN AS A DESIGN TARGET FOR OUR STORM WATER RECOMMENDATIONS UPSTREAM.

BEFORE WE GET TO THE HUNTLEY BOWL LET'S LOOK AT A CASE STUDY WE DID WITH MYSELF AND STRAND ASSOCIATES AND OTHER PARTNERS INCLUDING THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY.

WE TOOK A CONVENTIONALLY DESIGNED DETENTION BASIN AND WE INSERTED THIS DEVICE THAT RESTRICTS THE DISCHARGE OF THE TYPICAL EVENTS. AND YOU SEE A 24-INCH HOLE CHOKED TO ABOUT AN 8-INCH OPENING.

AND A BY-PASS THAT ALLOWS FOR DISCHARGE OF THE LARGER BITS TO MAINTAIN FLOOD CAPACITY. SO ALL WE'RE DOING IS RESTRICTING DISCHARGES OF THE MORE FREQUENT STORMS. HERE YOU SEE IT IN ACTION. AND WHAT THE DISCHARGE, THE RETROFIT WAS DESIGNED TO DO WAS TO TAKE BASICALLY A SYSTEM THAT USED TO EXCEED THE CRITICAL DISCHARGE ABOUT EVERY THREE MONTHS ON AVERAGE, IT EXCEEDS THE CRITICAL DISCHARGE EVERY 24 MONTHS ON AVERAGE. WE'VE SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASED THE TIME BETWEEN EVENTS THAT CAUSE EROSION.

[00:20:03]

AND THAT DOES A LOT F THINGS. IT SHOWS, YOU KNOW, THERE IS LESS STORMS CAUSING EROSION. BECAUSE WE TAKE THREE, SIX AND ONE YEAR STORMS AND MAKE THEM NOT CAUSE EROSION.

BUT IT GIVES THE STREAM TIME BETWEEN EROSIVE EVENTS FOR VEGETATION TO START TO RESTABILIZE IT.

SO WE'LL LOOK AT JUST A COUPLE OF, THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF A HYDROGRAPH. HERE IS PEAK RAINFALL AND INFLOW, 20 CUBIC FEET PER SECOND.

THE CRITICAL DASH LINE IS 13 CUBIC FEET.

WE RESTRICTED THE OUTFLOW, IT'S DOWN TO 4 CUBIC FEET PER SECOND, IT LASTED THREE OR FOUR MORE HOURS THAN IT OULD HAVE WITHOUT THE RESTRICTION. HERE IT IS IN ACTION.

YOU CAN SEE THE WATER COMING IN AND THE BIG PULSE OF WATER RIGHT THERE. AND OF COURSE, T'S FILLED WITH SUSPENDED SEDIMENT. THAT GIVES THE RETENTION BASIN MORE TIME TO IMPROVE THE WATER QUALITY BY LETTING SETTLEMENT SETTLE. RESTRICTING THE RELEASE AND MAKE IT NOT EROSIVE TO THE RECEIVING STREAM.

IF WE LOOK DOWNSTREAM, THIS WAS A PILOT PROJECT WITH MONITORING ON IT. HERE'S OUR STREAM IMMEDIATELY DOWNSTREAM OF THE DETENTION BASIN.

AND THE PICTURE ON THE LEFT IS SORT OF THE BEFORE PICTURE.

AND YOU SEE VERTICAL BANKS WITH OBVIOUS EROSION.

HERE'S ABOUT SIX YEARS LATER. THE BANKS ARE NO LONGER EXHIBITING KIND OF VERTICAL AND WE HAVE VEGETATION ESTABLISHED.

WE'RE HOLDING MORE WOOD ON THE CHANNEL WHICH MEANS WE'RE NOT FLOATING WOOD AWAY. GOING FARTHER DOWNSTREAM IN THE NETWORK, VERTICAL BANKS, ACTIVE EROSION, AND ABOUT SIX YEARS LATER WE SEE THAT CHANNEL HAS DEPOSITED SEDIMENT ON THE THE TOE OF THE BANK AND IT'S HAD ENOUGH TIME BETWEEN EROSION TO COLONIZE VEGETATION. THIS TRUE USED TO TREE USED TO HAVE THE ROOTS EXPOSED NO LONGER DOES.

HERE'S THE SAME TREE SIX YEARS PRIOR.

ONE MIGHT SAY, WAS IT JUST THE WEATHER THAT CAUSED THAT? HOW DO YOU KNOW IT WAS THE DETENTION DEVICE? WE HAVE AN UPSTREAM CONTROL SITE THAT DOESN'T RECEIVE FLOW FROM THE DETENTION BASIN. AND HERE WE HAVE THE BEFORE PICTURE. WITH YOU KNOW VEGETATIVE BENCH, DESCENT CHANNEL. HERE'S SIX YEARS LATER OUR CONTROL SITE HAS BECOME WORSE AND BANKS MORE VERTICAL AND ERODING. BASICALLY, THE STREAM WITHOUT THE INTERVENTION BECAME WORSE. THE STREAMS THAT HAVE THE UPSTREAM DETENTION BASIN INSTALLED, RETROFIT INSTALLED BECAME MUCH BETTER. SO OU TAKE BASICALLY A STREAM THAT WAS KIND OF IN THIS DOWN CUTTING AND WIDENING PHASE, KIND OF STAGE THREE OF UR CHANNEL EVOLUTION MODEL I DISCUSSED EARLIER. NOW WE'RE FACILITATING THAT POSITION AT THE TOES OF THE BANKS AND DEPOSITION IS COLONIZED WITH VEGETATION. WE'RE FACILITATING THE ABILITY OF THE CHANNEL TO KIND OF RECOVER ON ITS OWN BY KIND OF ADDRESSING THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

AND SO NOW I'M GOING TO HAND IT OVER TO CHRIS RUST, WHO IS GOING TO TALK ABOUT HOW WE PROPOSE TO DO SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR WITH

THE HUNTLEY BOWL OPPORTUNITY. >> THANK YOU, DR. HAWLEY.

CAN EVERYONE HEAR ME OKAY? >> YES.

>> YES. >> OKAY.

AS DR. HAWLEY MENTIONED, THE HUNTLEY BOWL WE FEEL PRESENTS A SIMILAR OPPORTUNITY TO REDUCE EROSION IN RUSH RUN.

IT'S A SIGNIFICANTLY LARGE DETENTION FACILITY WARM-UP THE WATERSHED. IF YOU WANT TO GET TO THE NEXT SLIDE. SO AS WE EVALUATE DETENTION BASINS SUCH AS THE HUNTLEY BOWL PARK DETENTION BASIN, ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE DO IS EVALUATE THE DRAINAGE AREA, TRIBUTARY TO THE ACTUAL DETENTION BASIN. HUNTLEY BOWL PARK IS KIND OF ON THE SOUTHERN END OF THE AERIAL IMAGERY YOU SEE ON THE SLIDE.

THE TOTAL DRAINAGE AREA COMING TO THE DETENTION BASIN IS ABOUT 565 ACRES, EXTENDSES NORTH OF THE INTERSTATE YOU CAN SEE ON THE MAP. NOT ONLY IS THE SCALE OF THE DRAINAGE AREA LARGE, BUT THE AMOUNT OF IMPERVIOUS SURFACES IS SUBSTANTIAL AS WELL. THE MAP IMAGE ON THE IGHT HIGHLIGHTED IN ORANGE AND BLACK REPRESENTS ALL OF THE EXISTING ROADWAY, PAVEMENT, BUILDINGS THOSE IMPERVIOUS SURFACES WHICH AMOUNT TO 350 ACRES, A VERY DEVELOPED WATERSHED DRAINING INTO THE HUNTLEY BOWL PARK DETENTION BASIN.

[00:25:02]

NEXT THING WE DO WHEN WE EVALUATE THESE TYPES OF FACILITIES IS TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE AMOUNT OF STORAGE, VOLUME, CAPACITY THAT HIS TYPE OF DETENTION FACILITY PROVIDES.

SO IN THIS CASE, WE'RE USING CONTOURS AND GIS BASED FORMAT TO EVALUATE WHAT IS STORAGE VOLUME CAPACITY OF THE DETENTION BASIN.

IN THIS CASE, THE UNITS WE TYPICALLY USE FOR THESE TYPES OF DETENTION FACILITIES IS AN ACRE FEET WHICH IS 57.7-ACRE FEET, WHICH CONVERTS TO 18.8 MILLION GALLONS OF STORAGE VOLUME CAPACITY. SO JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THE MAGNITUDE OF THIS PARTICULAR OPPORTUNITY IN TERMS OF THE DRAINAGE AREA AND STORAGE VOLUME.

STRAND AND SUSTAINABLE STREAMS WORKED ON STUDIES AND NOT FREQUENTLY WE COME ACROSS A DETENTION BASIN OF THIS SCALE FROM BOTH OF THE DRAINAGE AREA STANDPOINT AND OVERALL STORAGE VOLUME CAPACITY STANDPOINT. JUST PICTURES OF THE HUNTLEY BOWL PARK DETENTION BASIN ITSELF.

JUST KIND OF THE IMAGE THERE ON THE LEFT OF THE OPENNESS OF THE AREA. THERE ARE SOME CONCRETE CHANNELS AROUND THE DETENTION BASIN. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT DOES FROM A STORM WATER MANAGEMENT STANDPOINT IS QUICKLY ROUTE THE FLOW FROM UPSTREAM DIRECTLY TO THE OUTLET PIPE AND DOWN THE STREAM INTO RUSH RUN. FROM A SMALL STORM EVENT STANDPOINT, A LOT OF THE RAINFALL EVENTS, AS BOB SHOWED PICTURES, PROBABLY NOT SEEING A WHOLE LOT OF STORAGE OF RUNOFF BECAUSE ALL OF THE DRAINAGE IS ROUTED TO THE OUTLET PIPE. SO THAT FLOW ULTIMATELY CONVERGES TO AN ELLIPTICAL PIPE. WE TOOK MEASUREMENTS, DID FIELD MEASUREMENTS OUT TO THE BASIN. REVIEWED SOME OF THE ORIGINAL DESIGN DRAWINGS, CORRESPONDING TO THE DETENTION BASIN.

THE OUTLET PIPE IS ROUGHLY EQUIVALENT TO A 48-INCH OR 4-FOOT DIAMETER PIPE, SIMILAR CONVEYANCE AS A 48 DIAMETER PIPE. YOU SEE THE CONCRETE CHANNELS ON THE TOP LEFT. THE DRAINAGE COMING N IS VERY QUICKLY GOING OUT VIA THE OUTLET PIPE.

SO AS BOB MENTIONED EARLIER, THE TYPICAL YEAR RAINFALL EVENTS, THIS IS A GRAPH THAT HIGHLIGHTS TYPICAL YEAR RAINFALL EVENTS, WITH THE SMALLEST ON THE LEFT SIDE AND THE LARGEST ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRAPH. GENERALLY WHAT WE SEE IN A TIP CANNING YEAR, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF EVENTS THAT REGISTER 2 INCHES AND LARGER THAT HIT THE SCALE OF TWO-YEAR OR 10-YEAR EVENTS.

WHILE THE MAJORITY OF THE RAINFALL ARE MUCH SMALLER.

ONE OF THE THINGS WE HIGHLIGHT IN THE DETENTION BASINS, WE HEAR THIS ALL THE TIME WHEN WE DO THESE EVALUATIONS, WE DON'T SEE A WHOLE LOT OF WATER STORED IN THE BASINS BECAUSE THE SMALLER EVENTS ARE QUICKLY ROUTED OUT OF THE DETENTION BASIN AND NOT REALLY BEING DETAINED. NEXT SLIDE, BOB.

THERE ARE A WIDE VARIETY OF RETROFIT ALTERNATIVES THAT ARE AVAILABLE. IN THE PICTURE IN THE MIDDLE THERE ARE OTHER RETROFIT PLATES AND THINGS THAT CAN BE FASTENED ONTO AN EXISTING OUTLET PIPE. AND NEWER ADAPTIVE CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES THAT INCORPORATE SOME PRETTY SOPHISTICATED DEVICES, AND WEATHER FORECASTING TO MAXIMIZE THE BENEFITS.

WE WANTT TO HIGHLIGHT THE WIDE RANGE OF APPLICATIONS.

ON THE NEXT SLIDE WE'LL HIGHLIGHT, I GUESS IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE FOR THE HUNTLEY BOWL DETENTION BASIN, EVEN A NEW OUTLET CONTROL STRUCTURE LIKE THE IMAGE ON THE RIGHT CAN IS HAVE A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT IN TERMS OF REDUCED FLOW RATES OUT OF THE DETENTION BASIN. A COUPLE OF SLIDES AGO WE SAW THE ELLIPTICAL PIPE. A LOT OF DETENTION BASINS YOU WILL SEE THIS TYPE OF MULTISTAGED OUTLET STRUCTURE WITH WINDOWS AND OF IFSES ON THE BOX.

THIS TYPE OF OUTLET CONTROL STRUCTURE TO BETTER REGULATE THE FLOW FROM THE DETENTION BASIN ITSELF.

WE LOOKED AT AN OPTION FOR EXCAVATION AND REGRADING AND RESTORATION WITHIN THE BOTTOM OF THE DETENTION BASIN, CLOSE TOT THOUSAND CUBIC YARDS OF EXCAVATION TO GET STORAGE VOLUME WITHIN THE BOTTOM. THAT IS A POTENTIAL COMPONENT OF

[00:30:02]

THE PROJECT AS WELL. AND THE PLANNING LEVEL OPINION OF COST, CONSTRUCTION COSTS WE HAD LOOKED ADD AT TO DATE IS ABOUT $378,000. AND THAT DOES INCLUDE A 30% CONTINGENCY. AND THAT INCLUDES SOME OF THE COMPONENTS I JUST MENTIONED, THE OUTLET CONTROL AND EXCAVATION AND REMOVAL OF MATERIAL FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE DETENTION BASIN ITSELF. HIGHLIGHTING THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF THIS, WE'RE LOOKING AT HYDROGRAPHS FOR HUNTLEY BOWL DETENTION BASIN. THE BLUE LINE ON THE HYDROGRAPH REPRESENTS PREDEVELOPED CONDITIONS.

WHERE THE PEAK FLOW RATE AND PREDEVELOPED CONDITIONS GETS TO ABOUT 40 CUBIC FEET PER SECOND, WHICH IS ALSO CLOSE TO WHAT THE ESTIMATED CUE CRITICAL RATE FOR THE WATERSHED COMING TO AND DOWNSTREAM FROM HUNTLEY BOWL. THE THE PINK LINE IS THE RETROFIT IS GRADING. IF WE WERE TO IMPLEMENT THE IMPROVEMENTS WE TALKED ABOUT WITH THE NEW OUTLET CONTROL STRUCTURE AND THE EXCAVATION WITHIN THE BOTTOM OF THE BASIN, WE CAN HAVE A SIGNIFICANT BENEFIT EXISTING CONDITIONS, THE MAROON-ISH LINE ON THE HYDROGRAPH.

WE'RE SEEING A PRETTY SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN PEAK FLOW COMING OUT OF THE DETENTION BASIN.

IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE, THESE GRAPHS REPRESENT THAT TWO-YEAR, 24-HOUR STORM TYPE OF EVENT. A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN PEAK FLOW TRANSLATE TODAY A SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION EXCESS SEDIMENT TRANSPORT IN THE REACHES DOWNSTREAM FROM HUNTLEY BOWL BASIN. DR. HAWLEY IF YOU WANT TO CHIME BACK IN TALKING ABOUT THE EXCESS SEDIMENT NUMBERS.

>> THANKS, CHRIS. AS CHRIS MENTIONED, THIS BLUE LINE IS THE PREDEVELOPED, TWO-YEAR DISCHARGE.

THIS STREAM AS IT IS TODAY WITH THE CUE CRITICAL DISCHARGE WE'VE ESTIMATED, WE'VE DONE VERY LITTLE EROSION UNDER THE PREDEVELOPED FLOW REGIME. THE RED LINE IS THE EXISTING CONDITIONS CURRENTLY ATTENUATED SLIGHTLY BY THE HUNTLEY BOWL ELLIPTICAL PIPE. WHAT WE HAVE IS ABOUT 250 EXCESS TONS OF SEDIMENT TRANSPORT CAPACITY FOR JUST THIS ONE STORM. AND THAT'S A WHOLE LOT OF EXTRA WORK BEING DONE ON THE CHANNEL BY THIS SINGLE STORM.

OF COURSE, EVERY YEAR YOU MIGHT NOT GET A TWO YOUR, YOU MIGHT GET A 10 OR 50 OR EVEN A ONE YEAR THAT COULD DO DAMAGE.

THIS PINK LINE, EVEN THOUGH WE DON'T GET IT ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE BLUE LINE, THIS PINK LINE REDUCING THE EXCESS SEDIMENT TRANSPORT CAPACITY DOWN TO ABOUT 30-TONS.

NEARLY A 90% REDUCTION IN THE EROSIVE POWER OF THE FLOWS FOR THIS DESIGN STORM. AS CHRIS MENTIONED, THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY IN TERMS OF CONTROLLING A LARGE AMOUNT OF DRAINAGE AREA AND IMPERVIOUSNESS AND STORING A WHOLE LOT OF WATER. PROBABLY ONE OF THE TOP TWO OR THREE OPPORTUNITIES WE'VE SEEN AFTER EVALUATING 500 OR 1,000 BASINS FOR RETROFITTESS IN VARIOUS COMMUNITIES.

RETROFITS. IN CONCLUSION, AGAIN, EXTREMELY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO GET AT THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

IT CERTAINLY WON'T STOP ALL EROSION.

ANY BANKS THAT ARE CURRENTLY UNSTABLE, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE GEOTECHNICALLY UNSTABLE, THEY CAN REMAIN UNSTABLE FOR SOME TIME. BY HOLDING A GLOW BACK YOU ARE GIVING THE STREAM THE ABILITY TO REDUCE AGGRADATION AND T THAT CN BE BECOME STABLE AND BE A BUTTRESS TO AN UNSTABLE BANK AND SUBSTANTIALLY SLOW THAT DOWN. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWING THE BANK AND TOE TO BECOME FURTHER ERODED.

THE BANK ITSELF MIGHT BE UNSTABLE BUT THE TOE HAS BECOME STABLE. AND THAT'S A VERY POSITIVE IMPROVEMENT. AND AGAIN, SORT OF ALLOWING THE STREAM TO DO THAT ON ITS OWN. WHERE YOU KNOW, YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO THAT. AGAIN, IT'S SOMETHING THE CITY CAN DO NOW ECAUSE IT'S CITY-OWNED PROPERTY.

AND ONE OF THE NEARLY I'LL SAY ONE IN 1,000 IN TERMS OF CALE OF OPPORTUNITY. OF COURSE, INSTREAM SOLUTIONS ARE TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE AND MIGHT BE NECESSARY IN SOME REACHES. BUT TO BE SYSTEMIC, THEY REALLY NEED TO BE SYSTEMIC TO ENSURE LONG-TERM SUCCESS.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF ONE WAY KIND OF A POINT PROJECT OR ORT

[00:35:02]

OF A BAND AID PROJECT CAN FAIL. WHEREVER YOU STOP YOUR ARMORING, YOU HAVE A CHANCE FOR KIND OF THE UNPROTECTED SOIL BEHIND THE ROCK TO BECOME EXPOSED AND ERODED AND THAT CAN EVENTUALLY UNDERMINE THE ROCK THERE. AND EVEN EXPERIENCE PRACTITIONERS CAN HAVE PROJECTS THAT FAIL OR HAVE CHALLENGES.

AND SO AND HUNTLEY BOWL IS A CHALLENGING SETTING.

AGAIN, THIS TYPE OF SOLUTION IS TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE.

BUT THIS TYPE OF SOLUTION UP HERE AT HUNTLEY BOWL IS MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE AND GETS AT THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM.

WITH THAT, HERE'S OUR CONTACT INFORMATION.

I'M GOING TO STOP SHARING. AND PASS THE TORCH BACK TO THE CITY. I'M AVAILABLE FOR QUESTIONS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

IT'S VERY, VERY INFORMATIVE. WE APPRECIATE ALL THE HARD WORK YOU HAVE DONE. COUNCILMEMBERS, DOES ANYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS? I'LL START THE WAY WE NORMALLY ARE SEATED AND GO DOWN TO ROW THAT WAY EVERYONE GETS A TURN AND WE'RE WORKING IT THROUGH LOGICALLY, STARTING WITH MR. BUCHER. ANY QUESTIONS?

>> P. BUCHER: NOTHING AT THIS TIME.

THANK YOU FOR THE THOROUGH PRESENTATION.

AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THIS GO FORWARD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MR. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS POINT.

THANK YOU.> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEI TH.

>> D. SMITH: NO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MR. MEYERS.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I WAS CURIOUS IF MR. WHITED HAS PREPARED A RECOMMENDATION AT THIS POINT?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MR. WHITED DO YOU WANT TO ANSWER

THAT QUESTION? >> HE HAS.

I RECOMMEND GOING FORWARD WITH THAT HUNTLEY BOWL MITIGATION PLAN. OR IMPROVEMENT PLAN.

I THINK THAT WILL GO A LONG WAY TO MITIGATING SOME OF THE PROBLEMS IN THE STREAM. AS DR. HAWLEY SAID, IT'S A PRETTY RARE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AN IMPROVEMENT TO THE STREAM.

IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME FOR IT TO DO HEALING.

BUT I THINK IT WILL HAS HE DESCRIBED CREATE HEALING IN THE STREAM WITH THE AGGREGATION TO ESTABLISH.

THAT DOESN'T MEAN THERE WON'T NEED TO BE OTHER THINGS DONE IN THE STREAM OVER A PERIOD OF TIME.

BUT CAREFULLY, WELL-THOUGHT THROUGH AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH WHAT THE HUNTLEY BOWL WILL DO TO CHANGE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF

THE STREAM FLOWS. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: DO WE THINK THIS WILL IMPACT THE EROSION?

>> ALL THE WAY. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: ALL THE WAY

TO OLENTANGY? >> IT DOES.

THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WATERSHED MR. RUST DESCRIBED SHOWS A LARGE COMPONENT OF THAT IMPERVIOUS WATERSHED IS UP STREAM BUT THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT COMPONENT DOWNSTREAM THAT CHANGES THE FLOW CHARACTERISTICS SO THE CHANGE IN THE FLOW CHARACTERISTICS WILL, THE IMPROVEMENTS WILL LESSON LESSEN AS THEY GO DOWNSTREAM. BUT IT WOULD HAVE AN IMPACT ALL THE WAY AS THE FLOW CHARACTERISTICS CHANGE AND THE STREAM MECHANICAL, CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STREAMS

CHANGE. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: SO THIS WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ALL THE WAY DOWNSTREAM?

>> IT WOULD. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: OKAY.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. DOR

OTHY? >> R. DOROTHY: YES.

I ANT TO CONFIRM THAT CURRENTLY WE DO HAVE IN-STREAM CONTROLS THAT ARE FAILING T THE MOMENT AND THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS WE'RE AT THIS POINT, IS THAT CORRECT?

>> YES, MA'AM. THAT'S CORRECT.

>> R. DOROTHY: OKAY. AND THEN HUNTLEY BOWL IS NOT CURRENTLY BEING USED TO ITS FULL POTENTIAL AS YOU ALREADY NOTED.

THERE IS A GREAT POTENTIAL THERE AND WE COULD USE IT MORE.

>> IT WAS DESIGNED IN A DIFFERENT MANNER.

IT WAS DESIGNED IN THE OLD-SCHOOL WAY OF DESIGNING DETENTION BASINS, WHICH WAS MORE OF A FLOOD CONTROL THAN AN EROSION CONTROL CHARACTERISTIC. SO THAT DURING THOSE BIG STORMS IT WOULD HOLD THE WATER BACK. AS HE DESCRIBED, IT WOULD FLOW OVER A LARGER PERIOD OF TIME AT A HIGHER FLOW RATE.

TAKES IT DOWN FOR MORE FREQUENT STORMS AND KEEPS THE FLOWS IN A MORE MANAGEABLE SOLUTION MORE LIKE THE ORIGINAL STREAM CHARACTERISTICS WHERE BEFORE IT WAS DEVELOPED.

>> R. DOROTHY: OKAY. AND SO THEN THE VEGETATION WE WANT TO SEE AFTER THE PEAK FLOWS ARE REDUCED, WHICH I GOT THOSE

[00:40:04]

GRAPHS. SO USED TO TRYING THE SWASH THE CURVE DOWN NOW. WOULD WE NEED TO PLANT ANY OF THAT VEGETATION? HOW DOES THAT COME ABOUT?

>> THAT'S GOOD QUESTION. DR. HAWLEY, I'LL LET YOU ANSWER.

OTHER THAN SOME WILL OCCUR NATURALLY.

WHETHER WE WANT TO SUPPLEMENT THAT OR NOT, I WOULD ASK HIM

THAT QUESTION. >> IT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

IT WILL CERTAINLY BE COLONIZED BY THE VEGETATION THAT'S OUT THERE. A LOT OF VEGETATION IS INVASIVE.

IF YOU WANTED TO SUPPLEMENT WITH NATIVE VEGETATION, LOT OF COMMUNITIES DO THAT LIVE STAKE PROGRAMS. THOSE ARE CUTTINGS, LIVE CUTTINGS OF NATIVE PLANTS LIKE WILLOWS AND SILKY DOGWOODS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

THAT WOULD CERTAINLY SUPPLEMENT IT.

YOU KNOW, THE SEED BANK OF KIND OF HERBACEOUS GROUND COVER IS THERE AND WE EXPECT IT TO TAKE OFF.

A MIX OF DESIRABLE AND LESS DESIRABLE PLANTS.

BARE SOIL VERSUS VEGETATIVE SOIL, BARE SOIL IS GOING TO ERODE. ONE THING I FORGOT TO MENTION, CHRIS MENTIONED A TYPICAL YEAR A LOT.

IF WE GET A HURRICANE FRONT THAT COMES THROUGH OR BIG STORMS THAT COME THROUGH, OF COURSE, WE WOULDN'T EXPECT THE RESETTING OF THE SYSTEM THAT YEAR. BUT IF WE CAN HAVE ONE OR TWO YEARS OF NORMAL RAIN, THAT'S WHEN WE CAN KIND OF GIVE HAT SYSTEM THE PAUSE FOR THAT VEGETATION TO TAKE ROOT AND FACILITY THAT RECOVERY. GREAT QUESTION.

THANK YOU. >> R. DOROTHY: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, MS. DOROTHY?

>> R. DOROTHY: NO. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING ONTO MR. ROBINSON.

>> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU, MADAM PRESIDENT.

LOOKING AT THE QUESTIONS THAT MR. DAVID HUDSON SENT AT 6:30.

DAN, HAVE YOU HAD A CHANCE TO LOOK AT THOSE?

THE QUESTIONS SUBMITTED BY -- >> I DID OOK AT THEM BRIEFLY.

>> D. ROBINSON: I DON'T KNOW IF OTHER ANOTHER CATEGORY REGARDING A RECOMMENDATION. MR. HUDSON ASKED THAT IN THE SUSTAINABLE STREAMS IN STRAND REPORTS SEPARATE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STABILIZATION OF THE STREAM BED.

AND ALSO THE RETROFIT OF HUNTLEY BOWL.

HE ASKED, IS COUNCIL LANNING TO IMPLEMENT BOTH OF THE SETS OF

RECOMMENDATIONS AT THIS TIME? >> THE HUNTLEY BOWL IS BY FAR, WE OWN THAT PROPERTY. THERE IS NOT ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITTING REQUIRED TO DO THE WORK.

THERE IS NOT QUESTIONS OF EASEMENTS OR ACCESS.

ALSO THAT POTENTIAL TO DO, I FORGET THE TERM DR. HAWLEY USED BUT A PIECEMEAL APPROACH. THE DIFFICULTY INSTREAM WORK HAS TO BE PLANNED OUT EXTREMELY CAREFULLY.

DOING IT IN ONE SMALL REACH DOESN'T ADVERSELY IMPACT THE NEXT. IN SHORT, THE NSWER IS THE HUNTLEY BOWL, MY RECOMMENDATION IS TO DO IT FIRST WITH THE EXCAVATED APPROACH DR. HAWLEY AND MR. RUST DESCRIBED.

AND ONE, INVESTIGATE AND ANALYZE HOW WHAT IMPACT THAT AS ON THE STREAM. AND AT THE SAME TIME, CONSIDER WHAT OTHER OPTIONS CAN BE DOWN DOWNSTREAM WITH THAT NEWLY, NEW DISCHARGE RATE WE'LL HAVE. THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE STREAM AFTER THE HUNTLEY BOWL ARE BUILT ARE GOING TO BE MUCH DIFFERENT THAN TODAY. IT WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE DESIGN. AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERMITTING IN THE STREAM WOULD BE SIGNIFICANT. AND TAKE SEVERAL YEARS TO

DESIGN, LET ALONE BUILD IT. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU.

I THINK YOU ANSWERED QUESTIONS ONE AND TWO THERE.

THE THIRD QUESTION IS FOCUSED ON THE STABILIZATION OF THE STREAMBEDS. THIS MIGHT BE UNANSWERABLE AT THIS POINT. ASKS WHETHER THE RECOMMENDATION FOR THE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE GABBIAN BASKETS IS FOR THE FIRST 1100 FEET FOR MCCOY BRIDGE DOWNSTREAM.

WHAT IS THE INTENTION OF THE REMAINING BASKETS BEYOND THAT.

>> THE STUDY DR. HAWLEY DID DIDN'T GO INTO INDIVIDUAL REACHES. THAT WOULD BE A FINAL DESIGN

[00:45:05]

QUESTION. I DON'T THINK HE CAN ANSWER AT

THIS POINT IN TIME. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU,

APPRECIATE THAT. >> SURE THING.

>> COUNCILMEMBER ROBINSON OR PRESIDENT MICHAEL.

COUMAROU GOT A STEP AHEAD. THE ACCELERATION OF THE GOING TO READ THE SERIES OF QUESTIONS FROM NICKY AND DAVID HUDSON, AS WELL AS QUESTIONS RECEIVED FROM SUSAN AND DUSTIN MONDRACH.

IF NOW IS THE PPROPRIATE TIME, PERHAPS GO AHEAD ND HAVE THE COUNCIL CLERK READ THE REMAINING QUESTIONS.

>> D. KAY THRESS: THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES.

PLEASE SEE QUESTIONS FOR THIS EVENING'S PRESENTATIONS.

THESE QUESTIONS PERTAIN TO THE AREA BELOW 290 EAST SOUTH STREET. FIRST QUESTION: YOUR CONCEPTUAL RECOMMENDATIONS DATED AUGUST 2019 PAGE ONE RECOMMENDS EVALUATION BY CONSTRUCTAL AND GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERS.

JOY STATE ON PAGE 2 A FULL SOLUTION FOR A PRIVATELY OWNED FILL SLOPE, PERTAINING WALL SHEET PILES, ET CETERA, WOULD NEED TO BE DEVELOPED BY A GEOTECHNICAL/STRUCTURAL ENGINEER. ENGINEERED SOLUTIONS FOR DEEP RETAINING WALLS SHEET PILES, ET CETERA WERE DEVELOPED PRIOR TO REPORT IN THE SUMMER OF 2018 AND REJECTED BY THE CITY FOR THE CEC DESIGNED BORDER J HOOK SOLUTION. COPY ATTACHED TO THIS EMAIL.

I'M SURE YOU'VE SEEN THIS. WHY DOES YOUR REPORT STILL RECOMMEND DEEP RETAINING WALLS, SHEET PILES, ET CETERA? QUESTION TWO. THE CEC DESIGN PROPOSES A WILLOW LIVE STAKE PLANTING AREA AND EROSION CONTROL MATTING IN THE EXACT LOCATIONS THAT STRUCTURAL ENGINEERS AND GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERS MAINTAIN THE DEEP RETAINING CALL NEEDS TO BE LOCATED TO PREVENT FURTHER SUBSTANCESTANCE.

CAN THE STYRENABLE DEVELOP AN ALTERNATE SOLUTION AT THE LOCATION THAT INCLUDES A RETAINING WALL.

QUESTION THREE. THE CEC ENGINEERED DETAILS ILLUSTRATE FAIRLY SHALLOW BANK DIAGRAMS IN THE AREAS OF THE WILLOW STAKES AND EROSION CONTROL MATTING.

WILL THE CREEK WIDTH BE MADE NARROWER AT THESE LOCATIONS SO AS TO DECREASE THE ANGLE OF THE BANK? IF NOT, HOW IS THE FIRST 5-FOOT, THE TOE OF THE RIVER BANK TO BE MAINTAINED AS IT IS ALMOST VERTICAL? AND THEN MR. MONDRACH SENT ONE MORE QUESTION.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ONE QUESTION AT A TIME.

ONE EMAIL AND ONE QUESTION AND LET'S ANSWER IT.

BECAUSE IT'S TOO HARD TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ANSWER ALL THE DIFFERENT QUESTIONS. LET'S DO THE FIRST QUESTION.

MR. WHITED, DO YOU WANT TO HANDLE THIS?

>> SURE. I CAN DO THAT.

IT'S KIND OF CEC, BEFORE WE GOT INVOLVED WITH DR. HAWLEY HAD LOOKED AT SOME POTENTIAL TO DO A PIECEMEAL SOLUTION IN FRONT OF MR. AND MRS. MONDRACH'S HOUSE. BASED N A MEETING MR. LINDSEY AND I HAD ON SITE. THAT WAS SORT OF AN ISOLATED ATTEMPT TO DO WHAT DR. HAWLEY IS LOOKING TO DO -- IN A DIFFERENT WAY BECAUSE IT WAS PHYSICAL CHANGES TO THE STREAM.

WITH THE CURRENT FLOW RATE. SO IN A LARGE SENSE, IT'S ALL THAT HAS TO BE REEVALUATED. WE LOOKED AT THAT AND ONCE WE STARTED GETTING ENGAGED WITH OTHER CONVERSATIONS WITH MR. MONDRACH AND HIS ATTORNEYS AND ENGAGED WITH DR. HAWLEY, WE COMPLETELY SET THAT ASIDE. AND DIDN'T LOOK AT IT ANY FURTHER. SO THAT THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS, THEY ARE SORT OF UNRELATED NOW THAT WE CHANGED

[00:50:03]

THE APPROACH TO HOW THIS WOULD BE ACCOMPLISHED.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHAT ABOUT THE SECOND QUESTION?

>> I HAVE IT ON MY SCREEN. THE QUESTION, CAN THE CI CITY REASONABLY HAVE A SOLUTION THAT INCLUDES A RETAINING WALL.

NO FINAL DESIGN HAS BEEN DONE. THE PARTICULAR DESIGN IN CEC WAS STARTED AND NEVER COMPLETELY FINISHED AND HAVE TO BE REEVALUATED. THE ANSWER IS IT'S HARD O TELL

AT THIS TIME. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE

THIRD QUESTION. >> WITH THAT AGAIN GOES TO WHAT DR. HAWLEY STATED N HIS REPORT AND DESCRIBED TO US.

THE CHANGE IN THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THAT STREAM BANK WOULD DO THAT BASED ON IT BEING SITUATED BACK TO ITS, AGGREGATED BACK TO IT'S CONDITION OVER TIME.

WHAT CEC WAS PLANNING TO DO IN A DIFFERENT WAY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. THT QUESTION PLEASE.

>> D. KAY THRESS: YES, MA'AM, WHO WILL COORDINATE THE INSTREAM REPAIRS THAT NEED TO BE SYSTEMATICALLY INSTALLED?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. WHI TED.

>> THAT MAYBE A QUESTION FOR MR. LINDSEY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MR. LINDSEY.

>> MR. LINDSEY: HOLD ON THERE. I HAD A HARD TIME PUSHING THE RIGHT BUTTON. IN TERMS OF COORDINATION, THE CITY HAS GONE DOWN SORT OF TWO SIMULTANEOUS PATHS AFTER MR. WHITED AND I HAD MET WITH THE MONDRACHS AT THEIR PROPERTY, MR. WHITED STARTED DOWN THE PATH OF CONTACTING CEC TO DO SOME LOCALIZED REPAIR WORK AS HE INDICATED.

AT THE SAME TIME, I THINK HE WAS STARTING TO MAKE PRELIMINARY OVERTURES TO DR. HAWLEY AND SUSTAINABLE STREAMS ABOUT DOING A MORE COMPREHENSIVE STUDY. AS THE DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME, THE CITY RECEIVED A DEMAND LETTER FROM THE MONDRACH'S ATTORNEY, WHICH THEN SORT OF CHANGED THE SOURCE OF HOW THE CITY RESPONDED TO TWO VENTURES. THE CITY GOT C.I.P. FUNDING AND COUNCIL APPROVED THAT IN THE 2019 C.I.P.

HOWEVER, ACTUAL WORK IN ANY OF THE FURTHER DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LOCALIZED REPARAPHS PUT ON HOLD AS MR. WHITED INDICATED. -- REPAIR -- THE STUDY WITH SUSTAINABLE STREAMS DID PROCEED FORWARD IN THE SUMMER OF 2019.

AS THE SETTLEMENT DISCUSSIONS CONTINUED BETWEEN THE MONDRACH'S ATTORNEYS AND THE CITY'S INSURANCE DEFENSE ATTORNEYS ON BEHALF OF THE CITY. THOSE NEGOTIATIONS CONTINUED FOR A PERIOD OF TIME AS COUNCIL IS AWARE AND RECENTLY CONCLUDED WITH A BRIEF SETTLEMENT WITH THE MONDRACH'S ATTORNEY AND THE ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING THE CITY. COUNCIL HAS APPROVED THAT SETTLEMENT AND AUTHORIZED THE FUNDING NECESSARY TO DO REPAIRS OVER A 30-YEAR PERIOD RELATED TO THAT.

THE FUNDING FOR THE WORK PROPOSED IN THE SETTLEMENT INCLUDED TWO COMPONENTS. ONE, THE STUDY WITH DR. HAWLEY PERFORMED. THAT WORK HAS BEEN COMPLETED.

THE OTHER PORTION OF THAT WORK IN THE C.I.P. FROM 2019 WAS THE LOCALIZED REPAIR. THAT WORK HAS NOT BEEN DONE.

MR. WHITED INDICATED THE DESIGN OF THAT IS IN FINAL FORM.

AND FROM WHAT I HEARD AND I'M NOT THE HYDROLOGIST OR ENGINEER, IT SOUNDS LIKE IF THE HUNTLEY BOWL PROJECT MOVES FORWARD, THE APPROPRIATE DESIGN FOR THAT WORK MAY CHANGE BASED ON THE CHANGE IN THE FLOW RATE OF THE STREAM. BUT I'LL DEFER TO DR. HAWLEY AND MR. WHITED AS TO THAT PIECE OF IT.

I WOULD ANTICIPATE THAT THERE WILL NEED TO BE COORDINATION.

I ANTICIPATE MR. WHITED MAKING THOSE OVERTURES.

WE WILL PROBABLY GO THROUGH COUNCIL TO CONFIRM THAT WITH THE

[00:55:07]

MONDRACH'S ATTORNEYS AND THE CITY'S INSURANCE DEFENSE ATTORNEYS. BUT THE ACTUAL DESIGN ENGINEERING WOULD BE A COORDINATION OF, AND I SHOULD MENTION THE SETTLEMENT WAS A COMPROMISED SETTLEMENT OF THE DISPUTED LEGAL CLAIM. NEITHER PARTY ADMITTED LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY. AND SO THE CITY'S POSITION AT THE ONSET WE DID NOT HAVE LEGAL LIABILITY FOR THE UPPER BANK REPAIRS. AND THEREFORE, MOVING FORWARD IT WOULD BE THE PROPERTY OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY AS TO WHAT REPAIRS THEY MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE WILLING TO FUNDS.

ONE OF THE EARN CONCERNS WITH THE FACT THESE ARE LOCALIZED RESPONSIBILITIES FOR EACH PROPERTY OWNER IS TRYING TO DO A COORDINATED APPROACH. I WOULD ANTICIPATE AT SOME POINT IN TIME, THE CITY MAY WANT TO ENTERTAIN WHETHER OR NOT THE CITYWIDE PLAY A ROLE WITHIN THAT COORDINATION.

THAT WOULD REQUIRE DETERMINATION OF APPROPRIATE DESIGN, AS MR. WHITED INDICATED, WOULD NEED TO BE DONE ON THE DETAIL LEVEL.

THERE WOULD NEED TO BE LEGAL DETERMINATION OF ACCESS RIGHTS.

AND AUTHORITY AND PERMISSIONS GRANTED TO DO THE WORK.

AND THERE WILL ALSO NEED TO BE IDENTIFIATION OF APPROPRIATE FUNDING, WHETHER IT BE PROPERTY OWNERS THROUGH SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS, WHETHER OR NOT THE CITYWIDE CONTRIBUTE A PORTION OF THOSE COSTS FOR THE WORK. THERE IS A LOT OF QUESTIONS LEFT TO BE RESOLVED IN THAT. AND I BELIEVE MR. WHITED SAID THE EPA PERMITTING PROCESS ITSELF WOULD BE A SIGNIFICANT TIME PERIOD. I THINK THAT'S AN ONGOING DISCUSSION. I THINK THAT DISCUSSION CAN OCCUR. AFTER THE HUNTLEY BOWL IMPROVEMENTS AND TIME DETERMINES WHETHER OR NOT WE SEE THE IMPROVEMENTS DR. HAWLEY EXPECTS. I HOPE THAT ANSWERED THE

QUESTION. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU. MS. THRESS PRESIDENT MICHAEL, ONE ADDITIONAL EMAIL. THIS ONE FROM PAUL DOROTHY.

IS THE INTENT TO REPLACE THERE EXHIBITING GABION BASKETS OR CLASS B RIPRAP USED, GIVEN THE VELOCITY RELEASE OF HUNTLEY

BOWL. >> ABSOLUTELY, ANY SORT OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF NATURAL SOLUTIONS AND THINGS OTHER THAN ROCK AND RIPRAP CAN BE CONSIDERED.

YES, THE FACT THAT TYPICAL STREAM FLOW RATES ARE REDUCED MAKE THOSE MORE APPROPRIATE. THAT IS CERTAINLY A POSSIBILITY AND HAD A FINAL DESIGN ISSUE THAT WOULD HAVE TO

BE CONSIDERED. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANYMORE

QUESTIONS, MS. THRESS? >> D. KAY THRESS: NO, MA'AM.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: COUNCIB ERS HAVE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS NOW THAT WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE PUBLIC QUESTIONS?

>> COUNCIL PRESIDENT MICHAEL, ONE THING I FORGOT TO MENTION WITH THIS, IS WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH FRIENDS OF OLENTANGY WATERSHED FLOW ON SOME OF THIS WORK.

JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE FRIENDS OF THE OLENTANGY AND VERY INTERESTED IN WHAT'S GOING ON. AND THEY OFFER TO APPLY FOR A GRANT FOR, ON THE BEHALF OF THE CITY TO THE EPA FOR A 319 GRANT.

THAT GRANT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED. IT COULD POTENTIALLY FUND THE HUNTLEY BOWL IMPROVEMENTS, YET TO BE DETERMINED.

I ANTED YOU TO BE AWARE OF THAT AND GIVE A BIG THANK YOU TO FLOW

FOR DOING THAT. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'LL ALL JOIN YOU. I KNOW EVERYONE ONE OF THE COUNCILMEMBERS AND STAFF WILL THANK YOU IN THANKING FLOW FOR TAKING THE INITIATIVE. AND KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED THE GRANT IS APPROVED. THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL FOR ALL OF US. MR. GREESON, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO BRING UP ON THIS TOPIC OR ANY DIRECTION YOU

NEED FROM COUNCIL? >> M. GREESON: NO.

CAMERA HERE. CAN YOU HEAR AND SEE ME? I WANT TO THANK MR. WHITED AND MR. LINDSEY AND DR. HAWLEY AND MR. RUST. APPRECIATE ALL OF THEIR WORK.

THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A REALLY IMPORTANT PROJECT.

[01:00:05]

IT'S ONE OF THE THINGS WE'VE IDENTIFIED AS A MUST-DO PROJECT IN OUR C.I.P. THIS YEAR. ALTHOUGH, ALMOST ALL OF YOUR PROJECTS IN THE C.I.P. THIS YEAR ARE MUST DO.

YOU WILL -- BUT WE HAVE BEEN, IF YOU ASKED ME THREE WEEKS AGO, YOU KNOW, HOW FAST SHOULD WE MOVE FORWARD ON THIS PROJECT, I WOULD SAY IMMEDIATELY. WITH DESIGN, BUT THE FACT IS THE LAST MONTH HAS CAUSED, IS GOING TO CAUSE US TO IN LIGHT OF COVID-19 AND THE FINANCIAL IMPACTS PROBABLY REVIEW ALL OF OUR C.I.P. AND WE'RE DOING THAT RIGHT NOW TO EVALUATE HICH PROJECTS HAVE TO MOVE FORWARD THIS YEAR.

WHAT ARE MUST-DO PROJECTS, WHAT ARE SHOULD-DO PROJECTS, WHAT ARE COULD-DO AND WON'T-DO PROJECT SAID.

OUR EVALUATION WOULD INDICATE THIS IS IN THE MUST-DO CATEGORY.

BUT WE DON'T MAKE THAT DECISION UNILATERALLY AS STAFF.

IN THE COMING WEEKS WE'LL TALK TO YOU ABOUT ALL OF OUR C.I.P.

PROJECTS AND WHICH ONES OF THEM MOVE FORWARD.

WHICH ONES GET DELAYED. AND WHICH ONES GET CUT ALL TOGETHER. WHILE I WOULD EXPECT WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS MOVE FORWARD, WE THINK YOU SHOULD MAKE THAT DECISION IN THE CONTEXT OF THE WHOLE C.I.P., NOT JUST OUR INDIVIDUAL PRESENTATION THIS EVENING.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. LIE YOU NEED TO SAY?

>> MR. LINDSEY: I WANTED TO AND IT ACTUALLY FIT IN BETTER AFTER MR. GREESON'S COMMENTS. THE ONE EXCEPTION TO THE SORT OF WAIT AND EVALUATE WOULD BE THE COMMITMENT THE CITY MADE TO THE MONDRACHS TO DO THE LOCAL BANK REPAIR.

SO THAT IS A MUST-HAVE TO DO LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO DO.

AND IT'S EVERY INTENTION OF THE CITY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT.

HOWEVER, GIVEN THE QUESTIONS FROM THE MONDRACHS, TO -- THE NEED TO COORDINATE MAY DELAY BETWEEN THE ENGINEERS.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING ABOUT MY COMMENTS ABOUT COORDINATION THAT THE CITY WASN'T MOVING FORWARD .

IN FACT, WE'RE LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO.

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

[6.A.II. Waterline Study]

KEEPING OUR MEETING MOVING, WE'RE GOING TO HEAD OVER TO THE WATER LINE STUDY. IT'S BEEN A TOPIC OF GREAT IMPORTANCE. WE HAVE HAD MANY, MANY RESIDENTS CONCERNED ABOUT THE WATERLINE BREAKEN AND HOW WE'RE GOING TO FIX AND PRIORITIZE IT. AND HOW IT GETS TAKEN CARE OF.

WE HAVE SO MUCH OLD INFRASTRUCTURE AND WATERLINES THAT ARE OLD. WITH THAT, MR. GREESON, I TURN

IT OVER TO YOU. >> M. GREESON: WE'RE BLESSED TO LIVE IN A HISTORIC COMMUNITY. ON OCCASION THAT DOESN'T FEEL LIKE A BLESSING BECAUSE IT MEANS WE HAVE OLD INFRASTRUCTURE.

THAT WE HAVE TO REPLACE AND DO LOTS OF MAINTENANCE ON.

SO WE HAVE, AS YOU KNOW, SYSTEMICALLY EVALUATED ALL OF OUR INFRASTRUCTURE. AND MR. WHITED AND HIS TEAM HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB. WE HAVE COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATIONS OF SEWER SYSTEMS. AND WE'VE BEEN WORKING THROUGH EACH OF OUR MAJOR SEWER SHEDS TO DEAL WITH SANITARY SEWER IMPROVEMENTS. YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT SOME, YOU HEARD AN IMPORTANT PRESENTATION RELATED TO STORM WATER.

AND AS YOU ARTICULATED SO WELL, COUNCIL PRESIDENT MICHAEL, WE HAVE AGING WATERLINES AND HAVE BEEN EVALUATING OUR NEEDS TO INVEST IN OUR WATERLINE SYSTEM. WE'RE INCLUDED SOME FUNDING EACH YEAR IN THE C.I.P. TO INVEST IN WATERLINES.

BUT WHEN WE DID THAT, IT WAS REALLY A PLACEHOLDER UNTIL WE HAD A LARGER GAME PLAN ROOTED IN A THOROUGH VALUATION OF THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MRE THE CONSULTANTS WHO WILL PRESENTS ON THIS AND TALK ABOUT

WHAT WE DID HERE. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, AGAIN, THIS IS PRETTY EXCITING TO ME TO GET MOVING FORWARD WITH LARGER INITIATIVES AS YOU SO ELOQUENTLY SAID, LIKE MANY COMMUNITIES HAVE ISSUES WITH AGING INFRASTRUCTURES AND WATERLINES ARE NO SMALL PART.

[01:05:02]

LAST YEAR I SENT OUT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL TO MULTIPLE FIRMS TO DO A STUDY FOR US, INCLUDED EVALUATION OF ADEQUACY OF OUR EXISTING WATERLINES, THE CAPACITY ADEQUACY AS WELL AS SERVICEABLE LIFE, NEEDS AND DEFICIENCIES AND LOOK AT BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES ON HOW TO IMPROVE THAT OVER TIME, AS WELL AS IDENTIFY AND HELP PRIORITIZE THOSE WATERLINES IN THE HIGHEST RISK TO US FOR SOME THINGS THAT THEY WILL GO THROUGH IN THEIR STUDY. STRAND AND ASSOCIATES WAS PICKED TO DO THIS. INCLUDED IN THIS WAS ASSISTANCE WITH US AND EVALUATING OUR LONG-TERM BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES FOR OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OVER TIME.

AND THEY WILL GO OVER THESE THINGS.

IT WILL STRAND AND ASSOCIATES. THEY HAVE A VERY CAPABLE TEAM OF INDIVIDUALS. REALLY TOO MANY FOR ME TO INTRODUCE. I WILL LET HEIDI ROSE TAKEOVER AND DO THAT. I THINK YOU WILL BE IMPRESSED WITH WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. THEY HAVE DONE A VERY, HIGH-LEVEL EVALUATION OF OUR SYSTEM.

THAT WILL VER A LONGTERM KEEP US TO DYNAMICALLY EVALUATE THE SYSTEM AND KEEP UP WITH IT. THANK YOU.

GO AHEAD, HEIDI. >> HELLO.

THANK YOU FOR THE INTRODUCTION, DAN.

VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT. MY NAME IS HEIDI ROSE WITH STRAND ASSOCIATES. CAN EVERYONE SEE MY SCREEN?

>> YEP. >> OKAY.

WELL, AS DAN GAVE US THE INTRODUCTION, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE TEAM. WE VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH WORTHINGTON.

AND ORKING WITH DAN AND STEVE AND ROB AND DERRICK, I KNOW I HAVE LEARNED A LOT AND ENJOYED IT.

THE TEAM WE HAVE TODAY IS MYSELF.

I OVERSEE THE PROJECT AS THE PROJECT MANAGER.

KELLY CUBENDER, IN THE CINCINNATI OFFICE A AND NINA DIRK. ON THE DESIGN AND STANDARDS THAT WE HAVE SET TODAY UNIQUELY CATERED TO WORTHINGTON FOR THE PRIORITIES WE DISCUSSED. AND CHRIS RUGLES IN OUR COLUMBUS OFFICE HELPED WITH FUNDING OPTIONS.

TO GIVE YOU AN OVERVIEW OF WHAT WE DID FOR THE PROJECT, WHAT OUR GOAL WAS TO IDENTIFY THE REAL CONDITION OF THE WATER SYSTEM THAT IS SPECIFICALLY OWNED BY WORTHINGTON.

HELP PROVIDE PRIORITIZED SYSTEM OF PROMOTES BASED ON THE RISK ANALYSIS OF THE PIPE INFRASTRUCTURE, BASED ON INDUSTRY STANDARDS AND HELP EVERYONE IDENTIFY THE PROJECTS BY DOING SO, WE CAN PUT TOGETHER ANTICIPATED COSTS AND SCOPE.

FOR THIS PRESENTATION WE SWITCHED IT UP SLIGHTLY.

SO THE PACKETS CITY COUNCIL MAY HAVE RECEIVED EARLIER, THIS UPCOMING SLIDE FOR THE OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE IS A SYSTEM OVERVIEW TO EASE THE TRANSITION SINCE WE HAVE FOUR SPEAKERS, WE FELT IT WOULD BE EASIEST TO FOLLOW.

SO TO START WITH, I'LL GO OVER A QUICK OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM AS IT IS NOW. NINA WILL GO OVER THE SYSTEM INVENTORY AND WATER SYSTEM EVALUATION.

AND KELLY WILL JUMP IN THERE WITH THE WATER INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS PRIORITIZATION AND CHRIS WILL FOLLOW-UP WITH FUNDING. TO BEGIN.

FIRST THING WE HAD TO DO WAS IDENTIFY THE LEVEL OF SERVICE THAT WE AS WORTHINGTON, I SHOULD SAY, ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR.

WORTHINGTON IS UNIQUE, WE'RE A CONTRACTED MUNICIPALITY WITH THE CITY OF COLUMBUS. SEPARATE INFRASTRUCTURES AND GUIDELINES THAT WORTHINGTON IS REQUIRED TO FOLLOW SIMILAR TO FEDERAL AND STATE STANDARDS. WE ALSO THEN WANTED TO LOOK AT THE CITY'S CURRENT PRACTICES AND HELP PROVIDE SOME GUIDANCE ON ANY INDUSTRY STANDARDS THAT CAN GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE THEIR WATER INFRASTRUCTURE WITH THE COST, KNOWING THE COST IS LIMITED WE COULD HELP PUT TOGETHER A SCHEDULE. THAT CAN HELP THE CITY PRIORITIZE THOSE. WE ALSO ARE PUTTING TOGETHER A WORKING WITH THE CITY ON THE ACCREDITATION PROCESS TO HELP THE OVERALL CITY RECOMMENDATION THROUGH ACWA AND BE RECOGNIZED

[01:10:02]

NATIONALLY FOR THAT. FIRST STEP OF ANY GOOD OPERATION IS TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE. AND TO DO THAT, WE NEEDED TO LOOK THROUGH THE SYSTEM INVENTORY.

FOR THAT, I WILL HAND THIS OFF TO NINA.

WHICH I WOULD LIKE TO SAY, TOO, SOME OF THE COUNCILMEMBERS MAY RECALL NINA AND MYSELF FROM A MEETING A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN THERE WAS MI MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND HIGH SCHOOLERS PRESENT.

WE WERE NOT THE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS.

NINA. >> HI, EVERYONE.

I HOPE YOU CAN HEAR ME OKAY. I'M GOING TO TAKE A WALK THROUGH THE SYSTEM INVENTORY. AND HOW WE KICKED OFF PRIORITIZING THE WATER LINES. WATERLINE.

WE WENT THROUGH THE WATER SYSTEM INVENTORY MAPPING FOR THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. WE STARTED HIGH-LEVEL LOOKING AT THE CITY LIMITS, THE TOPOGRAPHY, LAND USE, STREAMS, RAILROADS, STREET CLASSIFICATION, WATER SYSTEM.

LOOKING AT THE HYDRANTS, PUMP STATION WITHIN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON AND SERVICES. WE TOOK A LOOK AT THE SANITARY AND STORM SEWERS, THE CUSTOMERS SERVED BY THE WATER SYSTEM AND THEN THE EMERGENCY ERVICES WITHIN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON.

THIS HELPED US TO TAKE A BIG HOLISTIC VIEW AT EVERYTHING AND DECIDE IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE CITY, HOW WE WERE GOING TO PRIORITIZE THE WATER MAIN. AND THEN LOOKING AT SPECIFICALLY AT THE WATER MAIN INFORMATION, WE LOOKED INTO THE OWNERSHIP WHETHER IT WAS CITY OF COLUMBUS OR CITY OF WORTHINGTON.

THE SIZE, MATERIAL, BREAK HISTORY, INSTALL YEAR AND REDUNDANCY. LIKE HEIDI SAID, WITH ANY SYSTEM YOU HAVE TO START BY LOOKING AT THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE.

AS WE STARTED DIGGING INTO THE GIS INFORMATION THAT WE RECEIVED FROM THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON, WE FOUND THERE WAS ABOUT 278 MISSING ATTRIBUTES FOR ANY OF THE GIVEN DATA I LISTED BEFORE OWNER, PIPE SIZE, MATERIAL, THINGS SUCH AS THAT.

WE NEEDED TO START BY FILLING IN THOSE GAPS.

SO THAT WE MET WITH THE CITY AND TOGETHER WE WORKED TO FILL IN THOSE GAPS SO WE COULD GET THE BEST OVERALL VIEW OF THE SYSTEM.

THE NEXT THING I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE WATER SYSTEM EVALUATION. THIS IS WHERE WE GET INTO THE OVERALL RISK PRIORITIZATION. TO DEFINE THE RISK OF FAILURE OF A PIPE. IT IS THE PROBABILITY OF FAILURE TIMES THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE, WHICH WILL OVERALL GIVE YOU YOUR RISK OF FAILURE. JUST TO MAKE IT A LITTLE BIT EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND GRASP. WE ASSIGNED THE PIPES A PROBABILITY OF FAILURE BETWEEN ONE AND 10 AND A CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE BETWEEN ONE AND 10. SO YOUR PIPE THAT IS THE HIGHEST RISK OF FAILURE WOULD RECEIVE A SCORE OF 100.

AND FOR PIPES WITH THE LOWEST RISK FAILURE WOULD RECEIVE A LOWER SCORE. THESE ARE THE RISK RANKING FACTORS WE HELPED TO IDENTIFY WITH THE CITY.

HERE OUR PROBABILITY OF FAILURE CRITERIA INCLUDE THE USEFUL LIFE REMAINING, NUMBER OF BRAKES AND BREAK RATES.

OUR LOWEST PROBABILITY OF FAILURE RECEIVES A SCORE OF ONE.

AND OUR HIGHEST PROBABILITY OF FAILURE WOULD RECEIVE A SCORE OF FIVE. MOST OF THESE ARE PRETTY SELF-EXPLANATORY. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE USEFUL LIFE REMAINING. BASICALLY WE TOOK A LOOK AT THE TYPE OF IPE TO GIVE IT A USEFUL LIFE REMAINING.

AND THE YEAR IT WAS INSTALLED. IN THE EQUATION YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN. AND THAT HELPED US TO QUANTIFY THOSE PIPES IN THE TWO TO FOUR RANGE.

THEN A FIVE WOULD RECEIVE OR A SCORE OF FIVE WOULD BE PAST USEFUL LIFE. NUMBER OF BREAKS AND BREAK RATE ARE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT BECAUSE THE NUMBER OF BREAKS ON A PIPE SEGMENT IS NOT ALWAYS -- DOESN'T ALWAYS DESCRIBE WHAT IS GOING ON IN GIS AS A PIPE SEGMENT OF 1,000 FEET WOULD HAVE MANY BREAKS, A PIPE SEGMENT OF T THE SHORTER HAS A HIGHER BREAK

[01:15:07]

RATE. THE NUMBER OF BREAKS PER 1,000 FEET OF PIPE LENGTH. INTO THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE, WE DEFINE THOSE CRITERIA AS PIPE DIAGRAMTER, STRAIGHT CLASSIFICATION, AGENCY COORDINATION, PROXIMITY TO RAILROADS AND STREAMS, EMERGENCY SERVICES, MAJOR CUSTOMERS, REDUNDANCY, CRITICAL ECONOMIC CUSTOMERS, AND THEN THE CRITICAL ASSET SET BY OWNER. TO TOUCH ON A COUPLE OF THINGS.

PIPE DIAMETER CAN TELL THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE.

STRAIGHT CLASSIFICATION, THE BUSIER THE ROAD, THE HIGHER CONSEQUENCE A BREAK WOULD BE AS IT WOULD DISRUPT MORE TRAFFIC.

AND ALSO THE AGENCY COORDINATION DIFFERENT TYPES OF ROADS WOULD REQUIRE MORE HIGHER LEVELS OF COORDINATION BETWEEN AGENCIES AND THE CITY. WE WOULD WANT TO CLASSIFY THOSE AS A HIGHER CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE BECAUSE THEY MAY TAKE LONGER TO FIX. PROXIMITY TO RAILROAD SAID AND STREAMS, ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS AND COORDINATION THAT GOES INTO BOTH. ANY PIPE NEAR A STREAM OR RAILROAD WOULD RECEIVE A HIGHER SCORE.

AND EVEN IF IT'S WITHIN 50 FEET AS THERE ARE CERTAIN INSURANCES AND COORDINATION EVEN WITHIN 50 FEET OF THOSE TWO THINGS THAT WOULD COME INTO PLAY. EMERGENCY SERVICES, OBVIOUSLY, YOU DON'T WANT YOUR SCHOOLS, POLICE STATION AND FIRE STATIONS TO BE CUT OFF. THOSE ARE A HIGH CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE. MAJOR CUSTOMERS, THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON'S BILLING HISTORY. AND IDENTIFIED THOSE MAJOR CUSTOMERS. TO ENSURE THAT THOSE INDUSTRIES COULD CONTINUE GETTING WATER SERVED TO THEM.

REDUNDANCY, WE LOOKED AT IF ONE PIPE BURST WOULD THERE BE ANOTHER WAY FOR THE CUSTOMERS TO GET WATER WITHIN THE SYSTEM OR IS IT A CRITICAL PIPE WITHIN THE SYSTEM THAT WOULD CUT PEOPLE OFF FROM WATER? STEPPING IS DOWN INTO CRITICAL ECONOMIC CUSTOMERS. THOSE WERE IDENTIFIED BY THE CITY. AND GIVEN TO US.

AND WE IDENTIFIED THOSE PIPE SERVING THEM.

AND CRITICAL ASSETS BY OWNER. WHEN WE EVENTUALLY GIVE THIS GIS INFORMATION BACK TO THE CITY, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO ADJUST THOSE CRITICAL ASSETS AS THEY SEE FIT.

AND IDENTIFY THEIR PROJECTS, WHICH WILL HELP TUNE INTO ULTIMATELY DAN AND HIS TEAM KNOW THE SYSTEM BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE. IT WILL HELP TO FINE TUNE SOME OF THE PROJECTS THEY KNOW NEED TO HAPPEN.

WE HAVE THE EIGHT ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

AND THE WAITING FACTORS HELP TO HONE IN ON WHAT THE CITY DEEMED WERE THE MOST CRITICAL PROBABILITY OR CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE. OBVIOUSLY, YOUR EMERGENCY SERVICEERIZE SUPER IMPORTANT. SERVICES ARE SUPER IMPORTANT.

THAT GOT A WAITING ACTOR WHICH HELPS TO PRIORITIZE THE THINGS THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON REALLY FELT WERE IMPORTANT.

HOW DID E LOOK AT ALL THE INFORMATION? ULTIMATELY, THE GIS PILE WE RECEIVED HAD UPWARDS OF 2,000 DIFFERENT PIPE EGMENTS. WE OBVIOUSLY COULDN'T LOOK AT ALL THOSE INDIVIDUALLY. WE DEVELOPED AN ARK PYTHON COMPUTER CODE, EACH ATTRIBUTE OF EACH PIPE SEGMENT WITHIN GIS AND WAS ABLE TO LOOK AT THE PIPE DIAMETER AND WHETHER OR NOT THAT PIPE HAD REDUNDANCY. AND THEN ASSIGN THE PIPE A CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE ND PROBABILITY OF FAILURE SCORE.

AND ULTIMATELY CALCULATING THAT RISK OF FAILURE SCORE.

THIS APPROACH ALLOWED US TO LOOK AT EVERY SINGLE PIPE INDIVIDUALLY WITHOUT HAVING TO SPEND THE EXTRA TIME TO REALLY STEP THROUGH IT. EVERY WAY.

THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON WILL ULTIMATELY RECEIVE THIS GIS CODE AND RUN NIGHTLY OR ON DEMAND AS THEY SEE FIT.

AND THEN THEY CAN UPDATE THE RANKING AS PROJECTS ARE COMPLETED OR NEW PIPES ARE INSTALLED TO CONTINUE TO GENERATE NEW PROJECTS. THIS IS OUR PROBABILITY OF

[01:20:02]

FAILURE MAP. AS YOU CAN SEE, OVERALL THE SYSTEM HAS A LOT OF PIPES THAT ARE GREEN AND GREEN IS GOOD IN THIS SITUATION. AND THEN AS YOU CAN SEE IN SOME OF OLDER PARTS OF THE CITY, THE PROBABILITY OF FAILURE IS HIGHER DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY MIGHT HAVE A HIGHER NUMBER OF BREAKS OR BREAK RATE OR PAST USEFUL LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT THE MAP ASK LOOKING -- IS LOOKING AT.

NEXT SLIDE. THIS IS THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE MAP. SO AS YOU CAN SEE HERE, YOUR MAIN ROADS AND HIGHWAYS AND INDUSTRIAL CORRIDORS MAYBE WHERE YOUR HOSPITALS ARE LOCATED, THEY ARE LIGHTING UP THE RED, ORANGE AND YELLOW. THOSE ARE THE ARE HIGHER CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE AREAS. BUT AGAIN, YOU CAN SEE THAT A LOT OF THE AREAS ARE STILL LIGHTING UP AS GREEN AND OVERALL THE SYSTEM ISN'T IN A CRITICAL STATE.

NEXT SLIDE. LASTLY, WE HAVE OUR RISK OF FAILURE MAP. AND THIS HELPED US TO IDENTIFY SOME OF OUR PROJECT AREAS. THIS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE RISK FAILURE AND CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE TO ULTIMATELY GENERATE THE MAP. AS YOU CAN SEE, SOME OF THE PIPES FROM BEFORE KIND OF SHOW HOW THE PROBABILITY AND RISK R PROBABILITY AND CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE COME TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS MAP USE SOME OF THE SAME INDUSTRIAL CORRIDORS LIGHTING UP WITH YELLOW AND RED AND HEN SOME OF THOSE OLDER AREAS OF THE CITY ALSO AS PROBLEM AREAS. NEXT SLIDE.

KELLY IS GOING TO GIVE AN INTRODUCTION OF SOME OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE IDENTIFIED USING THE SYSTEM.

>> THANKS, NINA. GO AHEAD TO THE NEXT SLIDE, HEIDI. AFTER WE COMPLETE THE RISK ASSESSMENT WE HAVE A RISK RANKING SCORE THAT IS ASSIGNED TO EACH INDIVIDUAL WATER MAIN IN THE CITY.

AND THE NEXT TEP FOR US IS TO FIGURE OUT HOW DO WE BREAK UP THIS MAP WITH THE RISK SCORES INTO LOGICAL PROJECT SIZES THAT CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE SINGLE C.I.P. PROJECT.

AND THEN, HOW DO WE RANK THOSE PROJECTS TO DETERMINE WHICH ONE SHOULD BE DONE FIRST, SECOND, THIRD? WHAT ARE THE MOST CRITICAL PROJECTS TO DO? AND THERE ARE A FEW ADDITIONAL THINGS THAT NEED TO BE CONSIDERED THAT ARE NOT PART OF THE RISK OF A PIPE FAILING BUT THEY ARE IMPORTANT FACTORS TO THE CITY WHEN LOOKING AT HOW AND WHEN TO PEND MONEY. THE THINGS WE WANT TO LOOK AT TO OVERLAY WITH THE RISK ARE THINGS WE HAVE SHOWN ON THE MAP.

THE BLACK DASHED LINES ON THIS MAP REPRESENT THE CITY'S PLANNED PAVING PROGRAM THEY PROVIDED TO US OF WHEN YOU ALL ARE PLANNING TO REPAVE STREETS. THESE AREN'T ALL PLANNED FOR NEXT YEAR. I BELIEVE THIS IS A FIVE-YEAR PAVING SCHEDULE. ONE THING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO THINK ABOUT, YOU CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO GO OUT AND REPAIR A WATER MAIN BREAK OR REPLACE A WATER MAIN IN A STREET THAT WAS JUST RECENTLY REPAVED. ONE THING TO THINK ABOUT PRIOR TO REPAVING A STREET IS THE PIPE IN THAT, THE WATER MAIN IN THAT STREET MIGHT NOT BE THE NUMBER-ONE PRIORITY ON YOUR LIST. BUT MAYBE IT'S TOP 10.

SO MAYBE BECAUSE THERE IS OING TO BE PAVING OCCURRING IN THAT AREA, MAYBE THE PRIORITY OF THAT INCREASES A BIT DUE TO THE LOCAL C.I.P. PROJECT. WITH THE PAVING.

THE OTHER THING SHOWN IS THE BLUE POLYGONS, OTHER C.I.P.

PROJECTS OTHER THAN ROAD PROJECTS LIKE SEWER PROJECTS OR OTHER CAPITAL PROJECTS THE CITY IS UNDERTAKING.

AND AGAIN, ANYTIME YOU CAN PIGGYBACK MULTIPLE PROJECTS INTO ONE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT, ONE PERIOD OF TIME OF TIME THE RESIDENTS ARE DISRUPTED. WE OVERLAY THESE AND LOOK AT THAT ARE THE RISK TO DECIDE WHERE THE PROJECTERIZE GOING TO BE LOCATED AND HOW ARE WE GOING TO RANK THEM.

NEXT SLIDE. TO THE QUESTION OF HOW TO RANK THESE PROJECTS. ONCE WE IDENTIFY THE PROJECT LOCATIONS, WE CAN THEN PUT HEM THROUGH THIS PRIORITIZATION CRITERIA SHEET, WHICH ASSIGNS A SCORE BASED ON THE RISK.

THE CITY'S PRIORITY AND COORDINATION WITH OTHER C.I.P.S. SO WE ASSIGN A SCORE.

WE ASSIGN A AITING FACTOR. AND THESE ARE CUSTOMIZED FOR WORTHINGTON. THEY CAN BE ADJUSTED AND TWEAKED

[01:25:02]

AS THE CITY NEEDS TO TWEAK THINGS.

AND PUSHING PROJECTS THROUGH THIS CALCULATOR WILL THEN DEVELOP A RANKED LIST OF THE CITY'S PRIORITY WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECTS. AND SO THESE ARE PRELIMINARY RESULTS. THAT THE CALCULATOR HAS GENERATED TO DATE. THESE ARE THE TOP-THREE PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED WITH THE CURRENT SCORING IN THE CALCULATOR. I SAY CURRENT BECAUSE WE'RE STILL BACK AND FORTH WITH THE CITY DOING FINAL TWEAKS AS WE WRAP UP OUR EVALUATION. BUT EVERY TOOL WE'VE DEVELOPED, EVERY SCORING MATRIX WE'VE DONE HAS BEEN CUSTOMIZED FOR THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. AND IT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN A WAY THE CITY CAN CONTINUE TO USE THESE TOOLS INTO THE FUTURE.

THIS IS NOT A ONE-TIME USE TOOL. THESE TOOLS ARE DEVELOPED THAT THE CITY CAN UPDATE THEM, TWEAK THE RANKING FACTORS AND THE CITY CAN CONTINUE TO SCORE NEW PROJECTS EACH YEAR.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF RESULTS THAT OUR TOOL HAS GENERATED.

AND AS MR. GREESON CLEARLY STATED EARLIER, CLEARLY WITH THE COVID-19 ISSUES, THE CITY IS GOING TO NEED TOOLS LIKE THIS TO HELP DETERMINE WHAT PROJECTS CAN MOVE FORWARD, WHAT PROJECTS MUST MOVE FORWARD. AND SO THAT'S THE IDEA BEHIND THIS TOOL. THAT GIVES THE CITY THE ABILITY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS. NEXT SLIDE.

TO FINALIZE THIS PRESENTATION TODAY, CHRIS RUGALS IS GOING TO DO AN OVERVIEW OF FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES.

>> THANKS, KELLY. WE INVESTIGATED ESSENTIALLY EVERY PUBLIC FUNDING SOURCE AVAILABLE IN THE TATE OF OHIO THAT WE'RE AWARE OF. WE WORKED WITH CLIENTS IN THE PAST THROUGH, THERE ARE ULTIMATELY THREE ELIGIBILITY PUBLIC FUNDING SOURCES IDENTIFIED FOR WORTHINGTON.

THE TWO SPECIFIC GRANTS THAT WORTHINGTON IS ELIGIBLE FOR INCLUDING THE OHIO PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION, OHIO DEVELOPMENT SERVICES AGENCY. I'LL EXPLAIN THOSE IN A MOMENT.

THE LOANS, OHIO WATER DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY.

AND OHIO PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION LOAN RATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE.

THE OHIO PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION ALSO KNOWN AS OPWC, FORMERLY ISSUE TWO, IS A STATE LEGISLATIVE MECHANISM THE CITY HAS USED ON PAST PROJECTS. THE CITY IS FAMILIAR WITH THAT.

THAT PARTICULAR FUNDING SOURCE OFTEN IT IS COMPETITIVE AND OFTEN SCORES THE BEST WHEN COUPLED WITH THER PROJECT COMPONENT SUCH AS PAVING, SEWERS, STORM WATER, ANYTIME THERE IS MULTIPLE DISCIPLINES OF INFRASTRUCTURE INVOLVED THAT WOULD TYPICALLY SCORE THE PROJECT HIGHER.

AND SENSE THE LEGISLATION WAS INITIALLY DRAFTED FOR ROAD PROJECTS, THE FUNDING SCORING SHEET STILL REFLECTS THAT.

IF THE WATERLINE IS PART OF A ROAD RECONSTRUCTION OR ROAD PROJECT THAT HELPS ELEVATE THE WATER LINE.

OHIO SERVICES IS THE OTHER GRANT PROGRAM AVAILABLE TO THE CITY.

THOSE FUNDING DOLLARS ARE AVAILABLE TO FUND PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE SUCH AS WATE WATERLINES TO PROMOTE GAINING OR RETAINING JOBS IN THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON.

IN OTHER WORDS, IF THERE WERE AN INDUSTRY OR A BUSINESS SUCH AS A HOSPITAL OR INSTITUTIONAL THAT WOULD BE ADDING JOBS THAT WOULD REQUIRE ADDITIONAL WATER SOURCE SUCH AS LARGER WATERLINES OR FIRE FLOW OR POTENTIALLY MAINTAINING ADEQUATE WATER FLOW, THOSE PROJECTS CAN BE ELIGIBILITY SO LONG AS THERE ARE JOBS TIED TO THE PROJECT. RETAINING JOBS IS ALSO SOMETHING THAT CAN BE USED. THOSE DOLLARS CAN GO UP TO $3 MILLION IN GRANT. IT'S ON A CASE BY CASE BASE BASIS, BASED ON WHAT PROJECTS ON THE PUBLIC OR PRIVATE SIDE THAT RETAIN JOBS ARE COMING TO YOUR CITY.

IF AN OPPORTUNITY IS IDENTIFIED, YOU WOULD REACH OUT TO OHIO DEVELOPMENT SERVICES AGENCY AND START WORKING THROUGH THAT PROCESS SEE WHERE THE CITY QUALIFIES.

AS FAR AS THE LOANS GO, THE OHIO WATER DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY IS A SUBSIDIZED INTEREST ATE ALSO KNOWN AS THE STATE REVOLVING

[01:30:03]

LOAN PROGRAM WHERE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BESTOWS FUNDS UPON THE OHIO DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AT A REDUCED ATE, ABOUT 2.17% CURRENTLY, COMPETITIVE WITH THE BOND RATE THE CITY CURRENTLY USES. HOWEVER, YOU DON'T HAVE THE BOND RATE FEES OR BOND COUNSEL INVOLVED.

THAT CAN BE AN ATTRACTIVE MECHANISM TO COUPLE WITH THE MUNICIPAL BONDS ONDS. AND FINALLY, OHIO PUBLIC WORKS IN ADDITION TO OFFERING GRANTS HAVE A COMPETITIVE 0% INTEREST RATE AVAILABLE SUCH YOU CAN COMPETE ON A SCORING CRITERIA SIMILAR TO THE GRANT TO GET 0% FOR MONEY FOR YOUR WATER PROJECTS. THOSE ARE THE THREE PRIMARY FUNDING MECHANISMS FOR THE CITY. I'LL TAKE MY COMMENTS OFF.

AND ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU ALL HAVE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MOVING ON.

MR. WHITED, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANTED TO ADD BEFORE I GET COUNCIL THOUGHTS? CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> YEAH, SORRY. I HAD A HARD TIME GETTING THE BUTTONS RIGHT. THERE IS NOT PARTICULARLY OTHER THAN THIS IS SOMETHING THE CITY SORELY NEEDS.

YOU CAN SEE JUST THE COST OF THOSE THREE PROJECTS IS SIGNIFICANTLY HIGH. WE HAVE TO START TAKING THIS DOWN. THE REAL BEAUTY WHAT THIS IS A SERVICE AND ENGINEERING DIRECTORS DREAM.

AS MY STAFF AND I CAN GO THROUGH AND EVALUATE ON A REGULAR BASIS WHAT THAT PRIORITIZATION WOULD BE AS NEW INFORMATION BECOMES AVAILABLE AS A NEW SITE IS DEVELOPED OR OTHER INFORMATION CRITICAL TO DECISION MAKING CAN BE FOUND AND USED TO OUR ADVANTAGE. IT'S PRETTY EXCITING WHAT THEY HAVE DONE. I'M IMPRESSED WITH THE WORK THEY HAVE DONE AS WELL. THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. GOING TO ASK COUNCILMEMBERS TO RELATE TO ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE.

AND THEN WE'LL HAVE MS. THRESS FILL US IN ON ANY LETTERS OR COMMENTS THAT HAVE COME FROM PUBLIC MEMBERS OUT THERE INTERESTED IN THIS PROJECT. I'LL DO THE REVERSE ORDER.

MR. ROBINSON, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING?

>> D. ROBINSON: NO QUESTIONS. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MS. DOROTHY.

>> R. DOROTHY: YES. I DO THINK THIS IS A MUST DO.

I WAS WONDERING WHAT KIND OF FUNDS WE HAVE IN THE C.I.P.

AND WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS CAN WE TACKLE.

AND THEN ALSO FOR THIS WATER SYSTEM EVALUATION, I'M NOT SURE IF I'M READING THIS RIGHT. IS THERE ANY WEIGHT GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE IN WORTHINGTON THAT HAVE LEAD COMPONENTS.

WE HAD PEOPLE FROM THE CITY OF COLUMBUS SAY IT WASN'T A BIG ISSUE BUT WE DEFINITELY DO HAVE LEAD IN OUR SYSTEM.

>> THE LEAD AS FAR AS I UNDERSTAND IT AND CERTAINLY THE FOLKS FROM STAND CAN HELP ME OUT HERE; THAT'S RELATED TO THE SERVICE LINES AND NOT PUBLIC MUNICIPAL LINES WE HAVE CONTROL OVER. THAT WOULD BE SIGNIFICANT BUT SOMEWHAT UNRELATED TO THE BIGGER PICTURE OF CHANGING OUT THE

LARGE WATERLINES. >> R. DOROTHY: ABOUT MONEY WE HAVE IN THE C.I.P. AND WHAT KIND OF MONEY CAN WE TAKE OUT, WHAT DO WE HAVE IN THE BUDGET ALREADY.

>> I ORGOT THAT QUESTION. WE HAVE CURRENTLY $500,000 A YEAR PROGRAMMED INTO THE C.I.P. ESSENTIALLY WE COULD DO 1 AND A HALF OF THE FIRST TWO PROJECTS DEPENDING HOW THEY CAME THROUGH OR THE COSTING WAS DIFFERENT. AGAIN, THAT WOULD GO TO OUR MUST-DO, WOULD-DO, SHOULD-DO STUFF AS WE MOVE FORWARD.

BUT THE CURRENT RATE IN THERE IS $500,000 A YEAR.

>> R. DOROTHY: WHAT ARE WE CURRENTLY SPENDING ON REPAIRING? WE HAVE A LOT OF BREAKS AROUND WORTHINGTON ALREADY.

>> WE HAVE SPENT, IT'S VARIED OVER THE YEARS.

THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE PRETTY LARGE; WELL OVER $100,000.

LAST YEAR WAS AROUND 30. YEAR BEFORE, 70 OR 80.

WE SPENT SIGNIFICANT FUNDS, TO REIMBURSE THE CITY OF COLUMBUS FOR THE WATERLINE FIXES THEY HAVE DONE.

IT'S ALL BASED ON A FORMULA THEY DO.

THAT NUMBER VARIES QUITE A BIT EACH YEAR.

>> R. DOROTHY: IT WOULD BE NICE TO BECOME PROACTIVE.

WE OBVIOUSLY NEEDED THE STUDY TO GET OUR BEARINGS TO KNOW WHAT

[01:35:01]

OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY NEEDS ARE. I WOULD LOVE, I THINK THIS IS A MUST DO. I WOULD LOVE TO GET AS MUCH DONE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. MEY ERS?

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: NO QUESTIONS.

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

>> D. SMITH: NO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. KOW

ALCZYK? >> B. KOWALCZYK: YES.

ONE QUESTION RELATE TODAY THE GRANTS.

DO ANY OF THE TOP THREE PROJECTS POTENTIALLY QUALIFY FOR GRANT

FUNDING? >> I'LL LET MR. RUGLES TAKE THAT QUESTION. CERTAINLY DOESN'T APPLY FOR THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMPONENT. THERE MAY BE SOME OF THE OTHERS MAYBE INCLUDED, PARTICULARLY IF THERE IS ROAD IMPROVEMENTS OUT THERE. WE HAVEN'T FULLY VETTED THAT Y YET. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE

ANYTHING ELSE TO SAY, CHRIS. >> NO.

JUST REFLECTING WHAT YOU SAID, DAN.

ALL WATERLINE PROJECTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION FUNDS HAVING OTHER COMPONENTS LIKE ROADWAY INCLUDED IN THOSE WILL MAKE THEM MORE COMPETITIVE WITHIN THE REGION.

THEY ARE ELIGIBLE FOR PWC GRANTS.

WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO IS WHO YOU ARE COMPETING AGAINST AND WHAT OTHER COMPONENTS MAYBE INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MR. BUC

HER. >> P. BUCHER: THANK YOU.

JUST REALLY ONE THAT WASN'T ASKED SO FAR.

OTHER THINGS WERE COVERED. IS THERE ANYWAY TO PARTNER WITH COLUMBUS WATER ON ANY OF THIS OR DOES THIS SOLELY FALLEN OUR RESPONSIBILITY AND FALL ON OUR BUDGET TO DO THIS TYPE OF

REPLACEMENT? >> IT FALLS WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THOSE WATERLINES THEMSELVES.

THEY SUPPLY THE WATER, WE TAKE CARE OF THE LINES.

PER CONTRACT. >> P. BUCHER: THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MS. THS FROM THE PUBLIC?

>> D. KAY THRESS: WE DID JUST RECEIVE ONE EMAIL FROM MR. PAUL DOROTHY. THE EVALUATION SEEMS TO BE BIASED TOWARDS BUSINESSES. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE SUFFICIENT INFRASTRUCTURE TO KEEP AND ATTRACT BUSINESSES TO WORTHINGTON'S BUSINESS CORRIDORS, YOU MUST BE COGNIZANT HOME-BASED BUSINESSES ARE MORE PREVALENT .

IN FACT, MANY OF US THAT ARE WORKING NOW ARE WORKING FROM OUR HOMES. FURTHER, WE CANNOT LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT WATER IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE.

WE HAVE SIGNIFICANT SECTIONS OF OUR RESIDENTIAL INFRASTRUCTURE THAT IS FAILING. DURING A RECENT COUNCIL ELECTION THE COLONIAL HILLS NEIGHBORHOOD WAS SURVEYED REGARDING RESIDENT'S GREATEST CONCERNS, THE CONDITION OF THE WATERLINES WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, SHOWN IN YOUR STUDY AS MOST OF THE HIGHEST PROBABILITY FAILURE SECTIONS, WAS A TOP CONCERN.

THE CURRENT APPROACH ASSUMES BY DEFINITION BUSINESSES ARE MORE VITAL THAN THE VIOLATION -- RESIDENTIAL AREAS, MANY CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE METRICS ARE BIASED TOWARD BUSINESS USAGE AND CORRIDORS. APPROXIMATELY A THIRD OF THE METRICS LISTED RESULT IN HIGH SCORES FOR BUSINESS CORRIDORS AND LOW SCORES FOR RESIDENTIAL CORRIDORS, WELL BEYOND DOUBLE COUNTING. THE RESULT OF THIS TYPE OF ANALYSIS IS CLEARLY SHOWN BY HOW THE THERMAL MAPPING OF THE PROBLEM GETS STOOD ON ITS HEAD WHEN ONE COMPARES THE PROBABILITY OF FAILURE MAP TO THE BLENDING ANALYSIS MAP.

THIS IS WRONG. WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT IS THE NUMBER OF IMPACTED PERSONS. THERE IS NO METRIC UNDER CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE THAT ATTRIBUTES THE NUMBER OF IMPACTS PERSONS, WHETHER EMPLOYEES OR THE CONSEQUENCE OF FAILURE NEEDS TO BE ADJUSTED FOR ALL CONCERNED.

THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU. MR. WHITED, DO YOU WANT TO

ADDRESS THAT? >> I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE.

SOME OF THE BUSINESS, STUFF FOCUSED ON BUSINESS WOULD BE THOSE HIGH-END USERS LIKE HYPERION WOULD USE A LARGE VOLUME OF WATER. AND THERE IS ALSO SOME SIGNIFICANT FOCUS GIVEN TO RESIDENTS.

AND IT'S NOT A FINAL DEAL YET EITHER.

WE AS STAFF WILL GO THROUGH THE FINAL ANALYZE AND MAKE SURE WE'RE FOCUSED ON BEING FAIR AND FOCUSED ON THE CITIZENS OF THE COMMUNITY, BOTH BUSINESSES AND RESIDENTS.

I DEFINITELY AGREE THAT'S AN IMPORTANT THING TO DO.

THAT PART OF THAT STATEMENT I CERTAINLY AGREE WITH.

[01:40:03]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY COMMENTS? MR. GREESON? ANYTHING?

I GUESS WE CAN OOK -- >> M. GREESON: NOT AT THIS TIME.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I GUESS WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING FORWARD TO RECEIVING INFORMATION AND FOR US HAVING TO MAKE DECISIONS BETWEEN ON CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19. AS TO WHAT WE MUST DO, WHAT WE SHOULD DO, WHAT WE CAN DO AND WON'T DO.

HAVING MORE DISCUSSIONS LIKE THAT IN THE FUTURE MEETINGS.

MR. GREESON, IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO BRING TO

[6.A.III. Financial Report - March 2020]

COUNCIL? >> M. GREESON: NO.

I BELIEVE THE LAST THING ON THE AGENDA IS THE INANCIAL REPORT.

MR. BARTTER. AND THEN -- WE WOULD BE GLAD TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT WHEN YOU THINK THE TIME IS APPROPRIATE.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: LET'S DO IT RIGHT NOW.

NO TIME IS BETTER THAN THE PRESENT.

>> M. GREESON: OKAY. I WANT TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. BARTTER. I WILL PREFACE BY SAYING THIS IS THE FINANCIAL REPORT THROUGH THE END OF MARCH.

OBVIOUSLY, WE THINK APRIL WILL BE DRAMATICALLY DIFFERENT.

MR. BARTTER IS GOING TO COVER THE LAST MONTH'S FISCAL REPORT AND GIVE YOU CONTEXT FOR THE NEXT ONE.

MR. BARTTER. >> THANK YOU, PRESIDENT MICHAEL AND MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. I WANTED TO TOUCH BASE QUICKLY.

ON THE FINANCIAL IMPACTS OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, THE PAYMENT AND TAX RETURN FILING DATE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JULY 15TH. THAT MEANS FOR US IS THAT IT WILL AFFECT CASH FLOW. SO WHAT WE WOULD HAVE PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED IN THE MONTHS BETWEEN MAY AND AUGUST, THOSE WILL BE RECEDED IN THE MONTHS AUGUST THROUGH NOVEMBER.

THAT DOES IMPACT INDIVIDUALS AND NET PROFIT RETURNS.

LATE LAST WEEK WE RECEIVED FROM THE REGIONAL INCOME TAX AGENCY EARLY ESTIMATIONS ON THE IMPACT, BOTH IN TERMS OF DELAY AND LOSS OF THE INCOME TAX FROM COVID-19. I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE THOSE.

INDIVIDUAL ESTIMATED DELAY IS $1.353 MILLION.

INDIVIDUAL ESTIMATED PROJECTED LOSS IS ABOUT 246,000.

NET PROFIT ESTIMATED DELAY AGAIN, THE DELAY IS THE DELAY FROM MOVING THE DUE DATE ABOUT $1.8 MILLION.

AND THEN THE WITHHOLDING ESTIMATED PROJECTED LOSS AT ABOUT 2 MILLION. THE TOTAL PROJECTED LOSS RELATED TO COVID-19 AT LEAST FROM SOME EARLY NUMBERS RUN BY THE REGIONAL INCOME TAX AGENCY IS $2,250,000 IN 2020.

THAT IMPACTS BOTH 2020 AND THEN HOW WE COMPOUND THAT OUT INTO THE FUTURE IN FIVE-YEAR FORECAST.

WE'RE BUILDING OFF OF A LOWER BASE.

AND WHETHER OR NOT THE ECONOMY BUILDS GRADUALLY OR RUBBERBANDS BACK UP IS GOING TO HAVE A BIG IMPACT IN THE PROJECTIONS.

THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS NOT GOING TO AFFECT JUST THE INCOME TAX, OBVIOUSLY, THE CLOSURE OF BOTH THE GRISWOLD AND COMMUNITY CENTER HAS A FINANCIAL IMPACT ON US.

THE PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT ESTIMATED THE CLOSURE THROUGH MAY 5TH, THEY ARE PROJECTING ESTIMATING LOSS OF REVENUE F ABOUT $370,000. SO THAT'S JUST THROUGH THE MAY 5TH CLOSURE, OBVIOUSLY IF THAT'S EXTENDED, ESPECIALLY INTO SUMMER CAMPS, I THINK THAT'S GOING TO BE EXACERBATED.

GAS TAX, WHILE THAT DOES NOT GET RECEDED INTO THE GENERAL FUND IT DOES IMPACT THE STREET REPAIR AND HIGHWAY FUND.

WE ANTICIPATE LOWER REVENUE COMING IN THE GAS TAX DUE TO THE STAY AT HOME ORDER. LOWER COLLECTIONS AND FINES AND FORFEITURES FROM THE MAYOR'S COURT.

WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE MOTEL AND HOTEL TAX WE ANTICIPATE THAT WILL DECREASE AS WELL. HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE MORE NFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE TO YOU. HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE NOW. WE'LL REMIND YOU I NEED A MOTION TO APPROVE THIS FINANCIAL REPORT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES. IS THERE ANYBODY WHO HAS A

QUESTION? >> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT

MICHAEL. >> D. ROBINSON: MADAM PRESIDENT.

[01:45:03]

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: YES. I'M HAVING TECHNICALLY DIFFICULTY. MR. ROBINSON, ASK YOUR

QUESTIONS. >> D. ROBINSON: MR. BARTTER, THANK YOU. I HAVE A QUESTION IN YOUR REPORT, YOU IDENTIFIED REVENUE IMPACTS OF COVID-19.

WHAT ABOUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SHEET, WHAT ABOUT EXPENSES? ARE ANY EXPENSES GOING TO BE IMPACTED SUCH IT MAY NOT BE QUITE AS SEVERE AS INDICATED IN THE INITIAL REPORT?

>> AT THIS POINT WE'RE TRYING TO TAKE AN APPROACH OF AT LEAST 60S DAYS OF CASH CONSERVATION. WE'RE GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT REDUCING EXPENSES TO THE POINT WHERE WE CAN CONSERVE CASH FOR 60S -- 60 DAYS. A LOT OF IT THE SAVINGS WOULD HAVE COME IN THE WAY OF PAYROLL IN TERMS OF PART-TIME EMPLOYEES AT THE PARKS AND REC DEPARTMENT, WHICH WE CONTINUED TO PAY FOR TWO PAYS. THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT OF OTHER EXPENSES. BUT AGAIN, WE'RE GOING TO GO THROUGH THIS IS WITH A FINE-TOOTH COMB.

WE'VE STARTED ALREADY AND LOOK FOR POSSIBLE EXPENDITURE SAVING

OPPORTUNITIES. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU.

ANOTHER DETAILED QUESTION ON PAGE 6 WHERE YOU GIVE THE GENERAL FUND OVERVIEW. CAN YOU OUT] PROVIDE SOME SERVICE VARIANCE DOWN $183,000. WHAT HAPPENED THERE PLEASE?

>> IT HASN'T COME IN. WE'RE WAITING ON THE LARGER

PORTION. >> D. ROBINSON: HOW ABOUT THE

PROPERTY TAX? >> WE'RE WAITING ON THE STATE REIMBURSE FOR HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION.

THAT HASN'T COME IN AS WELL. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU VERY MUCH. ALWAYS EXCELLENT WORK, MR. BARTTER. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS HAVE A QUESTION ON THE FINANCIAL REPORT? OKAY. MR. KOWALCZYK, WILL YOU MOVE WE APPROVE THE FINANCIAL REPORT? SECONDED BY MR. MEYERS?

>> B. KOWALCZYK: SO MOVED. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: SECOND.

FAVOR SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE. >> AYE.

STAFF IS WORKING REALLY HARD AS MR. BARTTER INDICATED, ONGOING THROUGH ALL OF OUR EXPENSES. AS HE SAID, WITH A FINE-TOOTH COMB AND TRYING TO DEVELOP STRATEGIES THAT WILL PREPARE US FOR WHAT COULD BE MULTIPLE SCENARIOS THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO PREDICT. SO EXPECT THAT YOU WILL GET MORE INFORMATION AT EACH UPCOMING MEETING.

[01:50:02]

AND WE'LL LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU ON WHAT ARE REALLY IMPORTANT ISSUES HOW WE MOVE FORWARD.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WELL, THANK YOU.
