OVERALL THE COMMENTS WERE POSITIVE. AND OPPORTUNITY WOULD BE SOMETHING TO SHARE WITH COUNCIL. WE DID ATTEND THE FARMERS MARKET, WE WENT FOR TWO WEEKENDS AND IT RAINED BOTH WEEKENDS. BUT IT WAS NICE TO HAVE OUR GOAL WHICH WE WERE ABLE TO COME BACK IN.

THERE WERE A COUPLE OF THINGS TO SHARE THAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AS A COMMITTEE AND WHERE WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO TAKE.

COUPLE OF DAYS. >> AND THE OBJECTIVE THERE IS TO GET FOLKS TO RESPOND THE MAILER OR ONLINE FORM, IS THAT

CORRECT? >> YES, SIR.

FOR EXAMPLE THE VERY FIRST VISION IS WORTHINGTON'S LIVABLE AND THEN YOU HAVE THE PRINCIPLES UNDERNEATH.

WHAT WE THEN SAY IS WE AGREE WITH THE ABOVE AND THEN WE SAY WHY. WE ALSO ASK IF YOU DISAGREE, THEN WHY. YOU SHOULD ADD THE FOLLOWING TO THE ABOVE. WHAT WE'RE ASKING FOR IS FOR THE COMMUNITY IS TO SAY, WE LIKE THIS.

HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT IT THIS WAY OR NOT.

IF THEY DON'T WANT TO DO PEN OR PAPER, THEY CAN DO THAT ON THE WEBSITE. AND THAT'S THE CASE FOR ALL SIX

OF THE VISION STATEMENTS. >> FANTASTIC, I LOVE IT.

IS THIS IN ADDITION TO A PREVIOUS SURVEY THAT YOU HAVE WORKED THROUGH WITH WHERE THEY CAN PUT OUT TO THE PUBLIC?

[00:15:01]

MR. LINSAY. >> THANK YOU MR. REESE AND COUNCIL. I DON'T WANT TO BELABOR THIS.

IT WAS TABLED FROM JULY DUE TO THE NEED TO RECORD A DEED AFTER WE HAD OBTAINED PROPERTY FROM ANHEUSER-BUSCH.

THAT HAS HAPPENED. THE LEGAL DESCRIPTION HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED TO REFLECT THAT DEED. AND NOW WE'RE PREPARED TO MOVE FORWARD. THERE ARE THREE PARCELS INVOLVED IN THIS BOUNDARY ADJUSTMENT.

SO THE CITY WILL TRANSFER THE PORTION OF THE ROADWAY THAT WAS SWEPT TO THE CITY OF COLUMBUS SO IF THERE IS QESTIONS, I CAN SHARE THE BOUNDARY ADJUST EXHIBIT THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE PACKET BUT IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, I'LL SAVE YOU THAT AT THIS TIME.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY OTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING THE PROCESS INDICATING TO THE MEMO. AFTER THE CITY COUNCIL ACTS, IT WILL STILL REQUIRE ACTION BY THE CITY OF COLUMBUS, CITY COUNCIL AND APPROVAL BY THE FRANKLIN COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AS AMINESTERIAL ACT.

>> AYE. >> MS. KOWALCKZYK?

>> YES. >> MS. SAL DE?

>> ABSTAIN. >> MR. SMITH.

>> YES. >> MS. MICHAEL.

>> PRESIDENT MEMBERS O COUNCIL, THIS IS FURTHER STAFFER VILLAGE PROJECT. HE'S GOING TO TOUCH ON THIS PROCESS COMBINING A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT LOTS.

MR. BROWN? >> THANK YOU, MR. GREASESON.

MADAM PRESIDENT, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL THE REQUEST BEFORE YOU IS TO COMBINE ACTUALLY AS PART OF THE SUB VISION PLAT FOR STAFFORD VILLAGE IS TO COMBINE 10 SEPARATE LEGAL PARCELS.

AND IN DOING SUCH, EXISTING 20-FOOT EASEMENT THAT HAS 12-INCH SANITARY LINE THAT WILL BE VACATING AND PLOTTING AN EASEMENT THAT WILL HAVE A NEW SEWER LINE.

SO WHAT YOU CAN SEE ON THE SCREEN IS EXISTING SEWER LINE RUNS EAST TO WEST OVER TOWARDS, HARTFORD AND THAT'S RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF VILLAGE THAT WILL BE INSTRUCTED.

THE SEWER LINE WILL GO OVER THE NORTH AND CONNECT ON TO HARTFORD. AND THEN AT THE END OF THE DAY, ALL TEN PARCELS WILL BE KLEINED TO CREATE ONE RECORD AND RECORD.

[00:25:05]

AND CREET A 20-FOOT EASEMENT THAT WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE CITY FOR A SEWER LINE. AND I CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME. IT WAS APPROVED ON JULY 23.

>> OAY, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS.

>> I HAVE A COME OF PLEASE. >> GO AHEAD MR. ROBINSON.

>> TO THE LINSING PUBLIC, WHAT IS THE BASIC PURPOSE OF THE COMBINING OF THESE LTS AND IS IT NECESSARY OR DESIRABLE FOR

THESE REASONS. >> IT'S REQUIRED.

IF YOU WERE TO COME IN AND GET A BUILDING PERMIT, WE WOULD NOT ALLOW TO CROSS MULTIPLE PROPERTY LINES.

AND THE BUILDING CODE REQUIRES THAT THE LOTS BE COMBINED.

AND AS PART OF THAT AS THAT EXISTING SEWER, WE WOULD NOT WANT TO PUT A BUILDING ON TOP OF THE SANITARY SEWER LINE.

SO AS PART OF THIS, WE'RE HAVING THE APPLICANT RELOCATE AND PLACE IT IN A 20-FOOT EASEMENT THAT WILL BE OWNED BY THE CITY AND GIVES GREATER PROTECTION FOR IT AND INSTALLS A NEW THAT WILL GO FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST.

>> THANK YOU. AND THEN THE LAST QUESTION, DOES THIS DO ANYTHING REGARDING SET BACKS OR ANY OTHER EFFECT RELATING TO ANY OTHER REPORTS IN PARTICULAR, THE PROPERTY

NORTH ON HARTFORD? >> NO, EVERYTHING THAT YOU ALL APPROVED, BACK IN FEBRUARY 18TH IS PART OF A PUD, ALL THE SET BACKS REMAIN IN PLAY WITH WHAT WAS APPROVED.

SOL WITH THE SUBDIVISION IT'S JUST LITERALLY COMBINING ALL THE PARCELLS AND VACATING AN EASEMENT AND APPLYING A AN EASEMENT. ALL PREVIOUS APPROVAL FROM CITY COUNCIL AND ARB BACK IN JULY STAY FORWARD AND GO FORWARD.

>> THANK YOU. >> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> OKAY, CAN WE TAKE THE DRAWING BOARD.

DOES ANYBODY ELSE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?

>> I JUST HAVE ONE. IS THIS THE LAST APPROVAL PROCESS BEFORE CONSTRUCTION CAN BEGIN?

>> ALL THAT IS LEFT IS THEY WOULD NEED TO MAKE APPLICATION FOR THEIR PERMIT AND WE CAN GET THINGS GOING.

BUT THIS IS ONE OF THE FINAL STAGES OF PD THAT WILL REQUIRE

A PUBLIC HEARING ON IT. >> OKAY, THANK YOU.

>> AND I BELIEVE WE'RE STILL READY TO GO.

MR. TABETS IS ONLINE. THE CONSTRUCTION PERIOD IS

STARTING IN JANUARY. >> ALL RIGHT, ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMENTS?

[9. Ordinance No 36-2020 Granting an Easement to Quikrete]

MS. TRUST HAS ANYBODY CALLED IN. >> THERE HAS BEEN DONE.

>> AT THIS POINT, WE'RE READY TO DO A ROLL CALL ON 35-2020.

>> MR. ROBINSON? >> YES.

>> MS. KOWALCKZYK. >> YES.

>> SMZ DORE SEE? >> YES.

>> MS. SMITH. >> YES.

>> MR. BOOKER? >> YES.

>> APPROVED. MOVING ON TO 36-2020 GRANTING AN EASEMENT TO QUICK PRIT, NON EXCLUSIVE EASEMENT IN QUICK CREEK TO ALLOW FOR THE USE OF THE PORTION OF HUNTLEY BALL PROPERTY. MR. GREESON I THINK YOU HAVE

SOMETHING. >> I BELIEVE WE'RE GOING TO TABLE THIS BECAUSE WE'RE STILL WORKING OUT SOME OF THE DETAILS WITH THE COMPANY. BUT IN GENERAL, AS THE MEMO ARTICULATED WHEN THIS COMES FORWARD, AGAIN AFTER TABLING IT, THE GOAL HERE HAS BEEN REDUCE SMFT STACKING THAT RURZ ON HUNTLEY PROCEED CREATING A SAFE SITUATION WHERE THEIR TRUCKS HAVE HAD TO ROAD. AND INSTEAD THEY WOULD HAVE ACCESS ON THE ENTRANCE DRIVE TO HUNTLEY BOWL PARK.

WE NEED YOU TO TABLE IT SO WE CAN RESOLVE IT.

[00:30:03]

MR. LINSAY DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO ADD?

>> THANK YOU, MEMBERS, COUNCIL MR. GREESON IS CORRECT IN HIS EXPLANATION. BY THE TIME THE PACKETS CAME FORWARD, WE WERE STILL WORKING OUT THE DETAILS.

I'M 90% CONFIDENT NOW BASED ON THINGS RECEIVED ON FRIDAY, THAT WE WOULD HAVE THAT AGREEMENT. THEREFORE WE ASK THAT IT BE TABLED FOR OCTOBER 5TH MEETING FOR APPROVAL AT THE TIME.

>> DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS REGARDING

TABLING THIS ORDINANCE? >> KNOXER BUT I HAVE ONE QUESTION THAT I WOULD LIKE TO ASK.

>> PLEASE. >> I THINK YOU DESCRIBED IT AS 90% CONFIDENT. WE WERE HERE BEFORE.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, THE SAME PROPOSAL WAS GRANTED.

AND I THINK WE GRANTED THE EASEMENT.

>> IT WAS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. IT INVOLVED SLIGHT DIFFERENCE IN WHAT THEY WERE DOING WITH THEIR PROPERTY AT SOME POINT AFTER COUNCIL HAVING APPROVED THAT LAND LEASE AGREEMENT.

THERE WAS A REVIEW OF THAT I BELIEVE BY THE BOARD AS WELL OR THE COMMISSION, I GUESS IT WOULD BE BY THE COMMISSION.

BUT THAT DID NOT PROCEED FORWARD.

IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS, THEY'VE HAD ADDITIONAL INCIDENTS IN TERMS OF ACCIDENTS THAT HAVE OCCURED DUE TO THE STACKING ON HUNTLEY AND THERE WERE THEY CAME FORWARD TO ASK TO DO IT. THEY WILL BE BEARING THE COST ON THE IMPROVEMENT ON THE HUNTLEY BOWL ACCESS ROAD.

[10. Ordinance No. 37-2020 Accept Amounts and Rates by Franklin County Budget Commission]

AND THEN, WE'LL HAVE AN EASEMENT FOR A PERIOD OF TIME A 25-YEAR EASEMENT IS WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED.

>> THANK YOU. >> ARE THERE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS? IF NOT, MR. BOOKER MOVES THAT WE TABLE THIS ORDINANCE. SECONDED BY MS. KAWALCKZYK.

ANY OBJECTION? IF NONE, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

>> AYE. >> AYE.

>> OKAY, THAT ORDINANCE IS TABLED.

MOVING ON TO NEW LEGISLATION, ORDINANCE NUMBER 37-2020 ACCEPTED AMOUNT SXZ RATES BY THE FRANKLIN COUNTY BUDGET COMMISSION. THIS IS ACCEPTING THE AMOUNT SXZ RATES AND AUTHORIZING THE NECESSARY TAX LEVEES AND CERTIFYING THEM TO THE COUNTY AUDITOR AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY. SO THIS IS ONE THAT WE HAVE TO DO IN TWO PARTS. FIRST PART IS GOING TO, IS GOING TO BE THE APPROVAL OF THE FISH ORDINANCE.

AND SO MR. SMITH, WILL YOU INTRODUCE THIS ORDINANCE?

>> YES. >> AND MR. GREESON WOULD YOU

LIKE TO GIVE AN UPDATE. >> YES, I'LL ASK MR. BARTER TO UPDATE THIS FAIRLY ROUTINE ITEM. HOWEVER OFTEN, IT'S NOT UNUSUAL THAT WE HAVE TO PASS IT BY EMERGENCY TO FILE IT QUICKLY.

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU. PRESIDENT MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THIS CONTINUES WITH 5 MILLS OF PROPERTY TAX.

THIS IS ANNUAL HOUSEKEEPING ITEM THAT NEEDS TO BE PASSED BY EMERGENCY SO WE CAN MEET THE DEADLINE OF OCTOBER 1.

I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

>> ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS? >> I HAVE ONE, PLEASE.

>> MR. ROBINSON. >> MR. BARTER, FOR MY BENEFIT BUT FOR THE PUBLIC. WHY DIDN'T YOU BRING THIS FOR

US EARLIER? >> I JUST GOT THE INFORMATION FROM FRANKLIN COUNTY LAST WEEK IN ORDER TO FILL IN THE BLANKS.

FOR THE LAST TIME WE PASSED BY EMERGENCY UP UNTIL 2016 BH THERE WAS A CITY CHARTER CHANGE THAT MADE THIS LEGISLATION AFFECT TOUGH BY PASSAGE. I JUST PLAIN DIDN'T DO IT BLANK SO NOW WE HAVE TO INTRODUCE IT AS AN EMERGENCY TO GET IT DONE

BY THE TIME NECESSARY. >> THANK YOU FOR YOUR

EXPLANATION. >> OKAY.

ANY FRTHER QUESTIONS? >> I HAVE A QUESTION.

>> YES, MS. DOROTHY GO AHEAD. >> SO WHEN IS THE LAST TIME WE HAVE CHANGED OUR MILLAGE FOR PROPERTY TAX?

>> 2007, IT WAS PREVIOUSLY 3 MILLS BEFORE THAT BEFORE WE

[00:35:05]

INCREASED IT TO 5 IN 2007. >> AND THEN, JUST SO THE PUBLIC KNOWS, WHAT CULD WE INCREASE IT WITHOUT VOTING ON? WHAT COULD THE COUNCIL INCREASE IT TO?

>> YOU CAN GO UP TO 8, SO YOU HAVE AN ADDITIONAL 3 TO

INCREASE WITHOUT THE VOTE. >> AND APPROXIMATELY DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY MILLS PROPERTY PAYS IN WORTHINGTON? WHAT PERCENTAGE GOES TO THE CITY VERSUS EVERYONE ELSE?

>> SO THE CITY GETS ABOUT 5 AND A HALF PERCENT OF THE PROPERTY TAX COLLECTION. THE MAJORITY ABOUT 68% OR SO

GOES TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. >> OKAY, WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE IT. >> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> FOLLOW-UP QUESTION, PLEASE. >> KEEP THEM COMING.

>> THANK YOU FOR POINTING THE MOTION BY MS. DOROTHY.

MR. BARTER, THE PORTION WHERE THE CITY WAS CLOSER TO 4% AND THE SCHOOLS GOT ABOUT THREE QUARTERS, HAS THAT CHANGED OR

HAS THE MEMORY FAILING ME. >> I HAVE IN FRONT OF ME.

?A. HAS BEEN A PERCENTAGE FOR YEARS.

>> IT'S BEEN PRETTY STANDARD HERE.

>> THANK YOU. >> OKAY.

ANYMORE QUESTIONS? IF NT, CAN YU CALL THE ROLL

MOVING TO 38-2020 CHANGING THE NAME OF THE ALLEY BETWEEN LIN ROAD KNOWN AS NO NAME ALLEY TO GILMAN ALLEY.

MR. GREESON? >> YEAH, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. THIS ALLEY HAS NO NAME AND THE RESIDENT THAT'S LIVE ON IT PETITIONED US EARLIER IN THE EARLY TO NAME THE ALLEY TO GILMAN ALLEY FOR ONE OF THE FAMILIES THAT HAS LIVED ABUTTING THAT ALLEY FOR A LONG TIME. MS. STEWART HAS INTERACTING WITH THE RESIDENTS ON THAT AREA BOTH WHO'S ADDRESSES ARE ON LIN

[12a. Letter of Support for Federal Funding - SR-161 & Linworth Intersection Project]

WORTH AND HUNGINGTON. AND I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO HER SO SHE CAN TALK ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING HERE.

MS. STEWART. >> SO THIS IS LISTED ON THE AGENDA SIMPLY FOR INTRODUCTION FOR PUBLIC HEARING ON OCTOBER 5TH. SO WE INVITED THE MAKERS ON

OCTOBER 5. >> INTRODUCED BY MR. ROBINSON.

>> SORRY, ROBIN MY MISTAKE. N.THAT'S OKAY.

>> RUSHING AHEAD HERE. >> LETTER FOR SUPPORTING FEDERAL FUNDING, STATE ROUTE 161 IN THE LUNAR ROAD INTERSECTION. MR. GREESON DO YOU WANT TO GIVE

US AN UPDATE ON. >> YES, AND MS. STEWART CAN CORRECT ME IF I GET SOMETHING ELSE WRONG, WHICH I PROBABLY WILL. IT'S A STREET CALLED 161 AND THE INTERSECTION OF LIN WORTH AND 161 AND AS YOU RECALL A FEW YEARS AGO. WE ENTERED INTO AN EXTENSIVE STUDY WITH A NUMBER OF PARTNERS INCLUDING MOCKERSY MOORE DOT, CITY OF COLUMBUS AND THERE WAS A STEERING COMMITTEE THAT

[00:40:05]

WORKED FOR MONTHS ON HOW TO IMPROVE 161 WHICH HAS BEEN AN ISSUE IN OUR COMMUNITY FOR DECADES IN TERMS OF DESIRING IT TO BE IMPROVED NOT ONLY FOR VEHICLES BUT ALSO FOR PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE ACCOMMODATIONS WHICH THIS AREA HAS HAD INADEQUATE FEATURES IN THAT REGARD FOR QUITE SOMETIME.

SO THE NUMBER ONE PIECE OF THAT STUDY, THE NUMBER ONE PROJECT RECOMMENDED TO MOVE FORWARD IN THAT STUDY WAS THE LIN NORTH 161 INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENT. AND SINCE THAT TIME, WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THE PROJECT PARTNERS TO EXPLORE A APPLICATION ATTRIBUTABLE FUNDING.

SO JUST TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY AND FOR THE PUBLIC, ATTRIBUTING FUNDING IS DOLLARS THAT COME FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO OUR REGION FOR TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS AND WE CAN APPLY TO RECEIVE SOME OF THEM. AND SO I'LL TURN IT OVER TO MS. STEWART AND SHE CAN TOUCH ON THE FUNDING SPLIT AND THE APPLICATION. AND WE'LL BOTH BE GLAD TO

ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE. >> THANK YOU.

SO YOU MAY RECALL LAST APRIL WE TALKED ABOUT THIS PROJECT.

AND AT THE TIME THERE WAS A SMITION TO REQUEST TO APPLY FOR FEDERAL FUNDS ON BEHALF OF THIS PROJECT AND ALL THE VARIOUS PARTNERS THE JURISDICTIONS THAT ARE IN THIS AREA.

THEY'RE IN THE PROCESS OF FINALIZING THAT APPLICATION.

IT'S DUE IN OCTOBER SO WE'RE WORKING ON THE FINAL PIECES FOR THEM FOR WHAT THEY NEED FOR THAT APPLICATION.

SO THEY HAVE ISSUED THE JURISDICTIONS THE CITY OF COLUMBUS AND CITY OF WORTHINGTON TO SUBMIT LETTERS OF SUPPORT. AND ALSO TO INDICATE SUPPORT FOR PROVIDING THE LOCAL MATCH THAT WILL BE REQUIRED FOR THE FEDERAL FUNDS. AND SO ALL THREE OF OUR JURISDICTIONS, THE STAFF OF TE JURISDICTIONS HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING THIS PROJECT AND THE LOCAL MATCH FOR IT.

I GUESS THE HIGHLIGHT WHERE WE THINK OVERALL THE BUDGET IS PROJECTED TO BE FOR THIS PROJECT WE'RE PROJECTING ABOUT 400,000, AND AT THIS POINT ODOT IS OFFERING TO COVER THE DESIGN COSTS. FROM THERE, W'RE BUDGETING IN THE RANGE OF 5 TO 6 MILLION FOR RIGHT AWAY AND UTILITY WORK.

AND TWO AND A HALF MILLION FOR CONSTRUCTION.

SO LOCAL MATCH OR RIGHT AWAY AND CONSTRUCTION IS PROJECTED TO BE 20% OR NEEDS TO BE 20% FOR FEDERAL FUNDS.

SO THE THREE JRISDICTIONS HAVE BEEN DISCUSSING THAT.

WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING IS THAT THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON PROVIDE 50% OF THE LOCAL MATCH AND COLUMBUS 45% AND PRAIRIE TO PROVIDE 45%. THE THINGS THAT THE JURISDICTIONED LOOKED AT WERE AMOUNT OF RIGHT AWAY IN THE AREA THAT WAS NEEDED AS WITH THE JURISDICTION AS WELL AS FRONTAGE, WORTHINGTON HAS 65% OF THE FRONTAGE ALONG THE FRONT END STRETCH WHICH IS WHY WORTHINGTON WAS ASKED TO TAKE THIS LARGER SHARE AND IT WAS NEGOTIATED TO BE AT 50%.

LIKE I SAID COLUMBUS AT 45 AND PERI.

AT THIS POINT, THAT WE'RE SUPPORTIVE OF PROVIEEDING UP TO 50% MATCH, UP TO A DOLLAR OF 108,000.

AND THAT IS TIED TO WHAT WE EXPECT THE TIF TO HAVE AVAILABLE FOR THIS PROJECT. AT THE TIME THE TIF WAS PUT IN PLACE, WE ANTICIPATED THAT LIKELY IMPROVEMENT AT THE LIN WORTH INTERSECTION SO. WE DID PUT THAT TIF IN PLACE TO HAVE FUNDS AVAILABLE. SO STAFF IS PROJECTING THAT THERE WILL BE SUFFICIENT FUNDS FROM THE TIF TO PROVIDE FOR THAT AMOUNT. WE'RE LOOKING TO SUBMIT THIS LETTER OF SUPPORT AND INDICATE OUR INTENT ON THE LOCAL MATCH.

I WILL NOTE ALL THE LOCAL JURISDICTIONS ARE TALKING ABOUT PURSUING OPW FUNDS. IF WE ARE SUCCESSFUL THAT DEADLINE IS LATER IN THE FUTURE. IF WE ARE SUCCESSFUL THAT WILL FURTHER OFFSET THE 20% LOCAL MATCH.

SO OUR AMOUNT WOULD BE REDUCED IF WE'RE SUCCESSFUL.

[00:45:01]

WE'VE DONE THAT WITH THE NORTHEAST LOCAL GATEWAY.

>> I HAD A QUESTION. IF THIS GRANT IS APPROVED WHEN WILL BE WE SEEING THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION?

>> SO IF I RECALL CORRECTING THE FEDERAL FUNDING WINDOW FROM WHERE THEY'RE ALLOCATE ISING ARPD 2025-2026 SO DESIGN WOULD BE LIKELY IN AHEAD OF THAT, SO 2022-2023 IS WHEN WE WILL LOOK LIKE AT PROVIDING SOME UTILITY DOLLARS.

LIKE I SAID IN THE NEXT YEAR OR TWO.

>> AND IT WOULD LARGELY DEPEND ON WHERE THE DOLLARS GOT SCHEDULED. SO IF THEY CAN FIT IN THAT, IF THE FUNDING COMMITTEE CAN SCHEDULE IT IN 25, THAT'S PROBABLY THE EARLIEST AND ALSO DEPENDS ON HOW MANY PROJECTS AND HOW THEY NEED TO SCHEDULE THE EDUCATION OF DOLLARS ACROSS

EVERY PROJECT. >> OKAY, DO WE HAVE ANY

QUESTIONS? >> OKAY, CAN YOU REMIND US AGAIN WHAT THE OVERALL CONCEPT WAS THAT WE AGREED TO FOR THE

STRETCH? >> GO AHEAD, ROBIN.

>> FOR THE PROJECT SCOPE. IT INVOLVED ADDITIONAL TURN LANES FOR THE INTERSECTION. UPGRADES FOR THE SIGNAL, OPTIMIZATION AND A SIDEWALK ON THE NORTH SIDE OF 161, ALONG WITH SIDEWALK ALONG GLEN NORTH ROAD.

>> BUT THEN THE WHOLE CORRIDOR WHAT WAS THE AGREED CONCEPT?

>> SO THE GENERAL CONCEPT RUNNING THROUGH THE AREA WHEN YOU'RE BETWEEN SOME OF THOSE MORE MAJOR INTERSECTIONS AND SAW MILL IT WILL BE A THREE-ROAD LANE WITH A DIRECTIONAL TURN LANE IN THE MIDDLE ALONG WITH THE SIDEWALKS TYPICALLY ON THE NORTH SIDE OF 161, THE SHARED PATH ON THE

SOUTHSIDE. >> OKAY, JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE WHAT THE CONCEPT WAS WHAT I AGREED TO TO GET THIS.

AND THEN ALSO THE OTHER CAVEAT WAS I THINK DURING THAT CONCEPT THAT BECAUSE WE'RE NOT GOING OVER UNDER THE RILROAD CARES WE'RE GOING TO HAVE SOMEWHAT OF ACCUSED, AS LONG AS WE HAVE THE

TRAIN FRAKZ GOING THROUGH THIS. >> YE, THE CONCEPT HAS SMOOTHING OUT ALIGNMENT OR THE PROFILE SO THAT YOU'RE NOT GOING UP THE HILL SO MUCH. BUT IT DOES NOT VOLVE A GRADE SEPARATION FOR THE RAILROAD BECAUSE OF THE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS ON MANY OF THE BUSINESSES AND PROPERTIES IN

THAT AREA. >> RIGHT, WHICH THEN LEADS ME TO, IM VERY HAPPY THAT WE AGREED TO THREE-LANE CONCEPT FOR VEHICULAR TRAFFIC I'M NOT PRIORITIZING OVER OTHER ROADS OF TRAFFIC, A SINGLE OCCUPANCY VEHICLE BUT, I DO APPRECIATE THAT WE ARE ADDING SHARED USE PASS AND SIDEWALKS.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT, I APPRECIATE THE LETTER THAT WE'RE WRITING DEFINITELY HIGHLIGHTS BACK TO SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCING FACILITIES FOR PEDESTRIANS EAST, WEST AND I WOULD LIKE TO TAP ANY FUTURE ACCOMMODATIONS INCORPORATED IN THIS DESIGN FOR NORTH SOUTH FOR WINWORTH.

I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THOSE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DESIGN.

I KNOW THAT SOME PEOPLE HAVE TALKED ABOUT WHERE OUR LIMITATIONS ARE FOR THIS DESIGN. I WOULD THINK TO THE ULTIMATE BOUNDARIES IS AS FAR AS WE CAN GET.

BIKE AND PED A COME DAZESING. --ACCOMMODATIONS.

I'M EXCITED THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LETTER OF SUPPORT.

>> AND WE'LL CERTAINLY LOOK AT THAT.

ONE THING THAT I WULD ADD, JUST TO KIND OF PUT IN YOUR MIND FOR THE LONG TERM HORIZON, THAT THE STUDY REALLY LOOKED AT OH TANGY RIVER. YOU WERE AKING ABOUT THE PIECES OF IT THAT WILL HAPPEN OVERTIME.

THE STUDY RALLY LOOKED AT THE WESTERN EDGE OF THE RIVER ROAD INTERSECTION ALL THE WAY TO SAW MILL.

[00:50:03]

WHILE NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR FIVE-YEAR PLAN ONE OF THE THING THAT I FORECAST IS I THINK OUR NEXT OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPROVEMENT OF TRAFFIC MOVEMENT, AND POSSIBLY BIKE AND PED ACCOMMODATIONS AS WELL, WE'LL HAVE TO LOOK AT THAT IS IN THE OLD ROAD INTERSECTION WHICH IS AN INTERSECTION THAT IS SLIGHTLY A SCUE AND NOT WHERE YOU CAN'T TAKE DOUBLE LEFT TURNS AND THINGS LIKE THAT SO IT DOES NOT OPERATE AS EFFICIENTLY AS IT SHOULD. AFTER WE ACCOMPLISH THIS PROJECT, THAT MAY BE ANOTHER ONE WE THINK ABOUT.

THAT'S A LITTLE BIT OF STAFF'S THINKING.

>> OKAY. ANY OTHER THOUGHTS OR COMMENT? IF NOT, MR. BIEBINGER MOVES THAT WE APPROVE STAFF SENDING A LETTER OF SUPPORT REGARDING THE STATE ROUTE 161 AND LINWORTH INTERSECTION PROJECT. SECONDED BY MS. KOWALCKZYK IS THERE ANY QUESTIONS? FINANCE SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

>> AYE. >> AYE.

>> MR. GREESON WRITE A GOOD LETTER.

>> YES, AND I WANT TO THANK MS. STEWART.

WE HAD TO TRADE OFF ON THIS PROJECT A LITTLE AND SHE HAS DONE A REMARKABLE BUILDING THE PARTNERSHIP AND WORKING

[13a. Trick-or-Treat Policy]

COLLABORATIVE WITH ALL THE OTHER ENTITIES INVOLVED.

SO I APPRECIATE HER WORK AND IT'S, YOU KNOW, I'M PRET OPTIMISTIC THAT WE'LL BE COMPETITIVE WITH THE OHIO PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION GRANT BECAUSE IT'S NOT A NORMAL TO HAVE A TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT, A COUNTY STATE, TWO CITIES AND A TOWNSHIP COLAB RATING.

THAT'S A PARTNERSHIP. I APPRECIATE THE STAFF WORK ON IT, DAN AND MS. STEWART. I'M READY TO TALK ABOUT

TRICK-OR-TREAT, ARE YOU? >> I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE ASKING WHAT WE SHOULD DO AND HOW WE'RE GOING

TO DO IT. >> IF WE WERE IN-PERSON, I WOULD PASS OUT CANDY, SO WE'RE NOT, SO YOU'LL HAVE TO GO TO YOUR CUPBOARD AND HAVE A PIECE. NOW TERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS RELATED TO TRICK-OR-TREAT.

PROBABLY THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IS THAT WE HAVE HAD A PRACTICE ADOPTED BY COUNCIL OF HOLDING TRICK-OR-TREAT ON THE CALENDAR DATE OF HALLOWEEN OCTOBER 31. AND SO THAT FOR THOSE OF WHO HAVE BEN ON COUNCIL QUITE A WHILE, THAT WAS A SERIOUS DEBATE AND SOMETHING THAT WE DECIDED.

THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN MOST OF THE REGION WHERE THE MIDDLE HIGH REGION WAS ASKED TO FACILITATE A CONSENSUS OR AGREEMENT OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN WITH THE SCHEDULING O TRICK-OR-TREAT IN COMMUNITIES WHEN TRICK-OR-TREAT FELL ON SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS. SO THE REGIONAL ACCORD IF YOU WILL, IS THAT THE COMMUNITIES CAN CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE IN OR NOT, MOST DO. IS THAT IT IS THEN, RESCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY WHICH IS OCTOBER 29TH.

THAT IN NORMAL YEARS AIMS TO AVOID, YOU KNOW, FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, SATURDAY NIGHT BUCKEYE GAMES AND THE VARIOUS FESTIVITIES THAT CENTRAL OHIOIANS PLACE HIGH OF LEISURE TIME PRIORITY. SO IN THIS INSTANCE, IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT. WHAT WE'RE RECOMMENDING IS THAT WE MOVE HALLOWEEN OR PUBLISH OR SCHEDULE HALLOWEEN, TRICK-OR-TREAT FOR THURSDAY OCTOBER 29TH.

WE'VE RECEIVED RECOMMENDATIONS FROM HEALTH LEADERS.

THE IDEA THAT IF ALL COMMUNITIES ARE ON THE SAME

[00:55:02]

DATE, YOU WILL NOT SEE PEOPLE MOVING FROM COMMUNITY TO COMMUNITY TRICK-OR-TREATING. AND TO AVOID THE INFLUX OF FOLKS THAT WE MAY RECEIVE AND WE TYPICALLY RECEIVE WHEN TRICK-OR-TREAT FALLS ON A SATURDAY.

WE WILL OFTEN SEE MORE PEOPLE COME TO THE COMMUNITY TO TRICK-OR-TREAT EITHER A, BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T DO IT IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITY ON THURSDAY OR FOR THEIR PERSONAL SCHEDULE.

OR THEY'RE GETTING A SECOND BITE OF THE APPLE, SO THERE IS AN INFLUX OF PEOPLE. AND THAT'S WHAT THEY WANT TO AVOID. IT'S LIKE THE FIREWORKS AFFECT.

PEOPLE WILL GO TO THE COMMUNITY THAT HAS FIREWORKS THAT WORKS FOR THEM REGARDLESS IF THAT'S THEIR COMMUNITY FIREWORKS.

SO I THINK WE WANT PEOPLE STAYING CLOSE TO HOME.

WE WANT PEOPLE TRICK-OR-TREATING WITH THEIR FAMILIES. AND WE WANT A REASONABLE NUMBER.

SO WE'RE RECOMMENDING THAT BE MOVED TO THURSDAY OCTOBER 29TH IN CONSISTENT WITH MORE SEE ACCORD.

THAT'S THE FIRST ISSUE. MS. MICHAEL, I THINK YOU'RE

STILL LOCKED. >> SO IT WOULD MAKE SNSE FOR OUR WHOLE SCHOOL DISTRICTS TO BE ON THE SAME DATE?

>> YES, BUT THE LARGE MAJORITY WOULD REPRESENT THE LARGEST

POPULATION. >> I THINK THE STAFF FELT THAT IT WOULD MAKE SENSE TO DO IT ON ON GOING BASIS.

WE'RE THE ONE THAT FIELD THE COMPLAINTS WHEN PEOPLE COMPLAIN ABOUT TRAFFIC OR LOTS OF PEOPLE THAT'S BEEN A COUNCIL PRESENCE TO MAINTAIN IT ON THE 31 AND WE'LL IN FUTURE YEARS, DO WHATEVER YOU WANT US TO DO. I ALSO HAVE UNDYING ADMIRATION FOR DR. CHOSE' AND APPRECIATE HIS INTENSE LOBBYING THAT HALLOWEEN SHOULD BE ON HALLOWEEN, FOR NO OTHER REASON

THAT IT MAKES SENSE. >> AND WELL I SHOULD SAY THAT MR. NORDSTROM WAS ALSO A ADVOCATE FOR IT AND I HAVE DEEP RESPECT FOR BOTH OF THEIR. YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT DOES NOT SET IT, IT JUST HAPPENS. BUT IN CENTRAL OHIO, GOVERNMENTS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHING DATES FOR THEIR COMMUNITIES FOR MANY YEARS. SO YOU KNOW, HERE WE ARE.

>> GOVERNMENT IS INVOLVED IN A LOT OF THINGS THAT I SOMETIMES FIND SURPRISING, NOT THE LEAST OF WHICH IS TRICK-OR-TREAT.

BUT FOR THE REASONS THAT I STATE, I WOULD SUPPORT THE MOVE THIS YEAR. BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE TO OPEN THE DEBATE NEXT YEAR IF FOR NO OTHER REASON TO PAY HOMAGE TO DR. CHOW AGAIN.

>> OKAY, I CAN LIVE WITH THAT. >> OKAY, IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE YOU WANT TO REPORT ON TRICK-OR-TREAT?

>> YES, ONE OF THE QUESTIONS HAS BEEN HOW HOW DO WE DO TRICK-OR-TREAT? AND WE DISTRIBUTED TODAY THE OHIO GOVERNMENT OF HEALTH GUIDELINES AS WELL AS REGARDING TRICK-OR-TREAT SO THOSE WILL B POSTED AND AVAILABLE AND WE'RE

[01:00:02]

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE ABOUT THEM.

>> MR. GREESO? >> ANY QUESTIONS?

>> YES, MADAM PRESIDENT, CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO HOW THE GUIDELINES CONFORM OR NOT WITH OUR OWN MASK POLICY?

>> THEY RECOMMEND THAT YOU WEAR A FACE MASK EXCEPT FOR CHILDREN UNDER TWO YEARS OF AGE AND INDIVIDUALS WITH MEDICAL EXCEPTIONS. SO THAT'S CONSISTENT.

>> THEY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO IT WITH YOUR FAMILY AND I'LL READ FROM IT. MAKE SURE THE MASK COVERS YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE, AVOID DOORS WITH A CLUSTER OF PEOPLE, STAY BACK AND WAIT UNTIL NOBODY ELSE IS AT THE DOOR.

PARTICIPATE IN ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE SO DISCOURAGING INSIDE HALLOWEEN PARTIES. AND BRING HAND SANITIZER TO USE BETWEEN HOUSES. TAKE ONLY WRAPPED CANDY OR TREATS. AND THEN, HAND WASHING.

I THINK THE ADDITION THEY'RE RECOMMENDING TO GET THE FLU VACCINE AT LEAST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE HALLOWEEN, BECAUSE THEY'RE APING TO REDUCE THE SPREAD OF FLU.

THEY ARE TREAT GIVERS. SO FOR PEOPLE DISTRIBUTING CANDY. THEY'RE RECOMMENDING THAT IF ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS SICK OR HAS SYMPTOMS, DON'T PARTICIPATE. DON'T HANDOUT CANDY.

DESIGNATE ONE PERSON PER HOUSEHOLD.

WEAR A FACE MASK AND PUT IT ON BEFORE OPENING THE DOOR.

MAKE SURE IT COVERS YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH.

AND THEY DON'T RECOMMEND THE LARGE BOWL THAT YOU CREATE IF YOU CAN, PRECALENDAREDING AMOUNTS IN LITTLE BAG HE'S, PROVIDE HAND SANITIZER IF YOU CAN AND ALSO, ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO GET FLU VACCINE AS WELL.

SO--VACCINE. THOSE ARE SOME OF THEM.

WE'LL GET THEM AS WIDELY SPREAD AS POSSIBLE.

BUT WE'RE APPRECIATIVE OF THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND CPH FOR PUTTING GUIDELINES THAT ALLOW, I CULDN'T SAY ALLOW BUT HELP SHAPE HOW OUR COMMUNITIES CAN HAVE FUN AND ALSO BE SAVE ON A CHERISHED EVENT NIGHT IN MANY COMMUNITIES.

>> OKAY, DOES AYBODY HAVE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS.

>> JUST A COMMENT WITH MYERS, I STAND IN THE DR. CHELSEA CORNER WITH OCTOBER 31, GIVEN THIS YAE, I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA BUT JUST KNOWING THAT'S AT LEAST FOR NOW, ONE TIME

DISPENSATION. >> OKAY, I HAVE FOND MEMORIES

OF DR. CHOSY. >> I TOTALLY AGREE WITH MR. SMITH. I'M ACTUALLY DEFINITELY LOVE THE 31 GIVEN THE YEAR AND EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING ON.

I TOTALLY AGREE WITH GOING WITH MORESEY GUIDELINES AND PUBLIC HEALTH. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT EVERYONE'S SAFETY. I HOPE THAT IF THEY PARTICIPATE THAT THEY FOLLOW EVERY GUIDELINES STRINGENTLY.

BUT I WOULD HAVE TO HAVE THIS EVALUATED NEXT YEAR AND HOPEFULLY WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE AS MANY SAFETY MEASURES.

>> OKAY. I HEAR YOU.

ALL AND WE'LL DO IT FOR ONE YEAR.

AND THEN, LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY ON THIS MATTER.

BUT I TOO APPRECIATE EVERYONE HONORING DR. CHOSY'S POSITION.

I BELIEVE AND MR. LINSAY CAN CORRECT ME OR HELP ME.

I BELIEVE WE ADOPTED THAT POSITION BY MOTION? AND SO WE PROBABLY NEED TO ACT BY MOTION TO HOLD IT ON ANOTHER

[01:05:02]

EVENING, IS THAT CORRECT? >> YES.

MS. TRUST CONFIRMED THAT THE ADOPTION OF THE 31 WAS BY SIMPLE MOTION NOT BY RESOLUTION ORDINANCE.

SO THERE IS NO NEED TO PASS A RESOLUTION OR ORDINANCE TO CHANGE IT, THEREFORE A SIMPLE MOTION WOULD BE SUFFICIENT.

>> SECRET BACKGROUND, MR. BOOKER DO YOU MOVE THAT FOR 2020 WE HAVE HALLOWEEN ON OCTOBER 29TH?

>> YES, MA'AM. >> OKAY, SECOND BY MS.

KOWALSCKZYK? >> AYE.

>> AYE. >> AYE.

>> OKAY, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT OF HAPPY TRICK-OR-TREATERS ON OCTOBER 29. THERE ARE A LOT OF FAMILIES ARE GOING TO B HAPPY THAT THERE IS THIS HOLIDAY.

IF THERE WAS A EVER A HOLIDAY THAT MASK RIGHT SIDE CELEBRATED IS HALLOWEEN. SOME PEOPLE MAY HAVE DIFFERENT

[13b. Possible Council Retreat Dates]

MASKS AN OTHERS, THEY MAY LOOK SOME CARTOON CHARACTERS BUT THAT'S GREAT. STILL A MASK.

>> MADAM CLERK, MAY I MAKE A FINAL CMMENT ON DR. CHOSY.

FOR THOSE ADOPTING DR. CHOSY SINCE IT WAS A AFFECTED BY A MERE MENTION YOU CAN TRY TO ATTEND THE CHARTER SO IT LIVES IN PERPETUITY. JUST AN IDEA.

>> OKAY. WE'LL REVISIT THIS NEXT YEAR.

ALL RIGHT MOVING ON TO POSSIBLE COUNCIL RETREAT DATES.

HAVE WE GOTTEN ANY CONSENSUS? >> WELL I BELIEVE SO.

AND I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MS. TRUST WHO IS GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT SHE HEARD IN TERMS FROM THE MAJORITY OF YOU.

I DON'T THINK ALL OF YOU BUT THE MAJORITY OF YOU ABOUT A WEEKEND THAT WOULD WORK IN JANUARY.

>> GOOD EVENING, COUNCIL. I DID SEND OUT AN EMAIL LAST WEEK WITH SOME POSSIBLE DATES IN JANUARY.

THE FIRST ONE WAS 8, FRIDAY THE 8 AND SATURDAY THE 9TH.

THEN THE WEEKEND GOING FORWARD, 15TH AND 16TH, 22, 23, 29TH AND 30TH. OF THE FIVE THAT I SPOKE WITH OR RECEIVED COMMENTS BACK, ALL OF YOU WERE HAPPY WITH THE 8TH AND 9TH. AND THAT WAS REALLY THE ONLY DATE THAT EVERYONE WAS OF CONSENSUS FOR.

>> OKAY, DOES ANYBODY WHO DIDN'T REPLY, DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY REASON TO NOT GO WITH JANUARY 8TH AND 9TH?

>> WELL I WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.

AND THOSE ARE FINE WITH ME. >> OKAY.

>> OKAY, HEARING NOTHING FROM ANYBODY ELSE, MR. TRUST, MR. GREESON MS. STEWART, IF YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD TO AT LEAST START PUTTING TOGETHER SOME CONCEPTS FOR THAT.

AT LEAST WE KNOW WE HAVE A DATE SO WE CAN PROBABLY CHECK WITH THE SCHOOL BOARD TO USE THEIR BUILDING, THEIR ROOM WHERE WE

CAN BE SPREAD OUT. >> YEAH, I MEAN THAT'S THE NEXT QUESTION IS THE ASSUMING YOU WANT TO DO AN INPERSON AS

[13c. Virtual vs. In-Person Meetings]

OPPOSED TO DISTANCE. I EXPECT THAT IN JANUARY, STILL BE VERY MUCH FACED WITH THE SAME QUESTION ABOUT HOW WE MANAGE MEETINGS. WOOL WORK WITH YOU AND WE'LL FIND A WAY TO MAKE IT A FRUITFUL RETREAT.

>> WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING BACK ON THAT.

AND SEEING THE IDEAS AND CREATIVITY THAT COUNCIL, BUT AT LEAST WE CAN HAVE A DATE. WE CAN MARK OUR CALENDAR AND PLAN ACCORDINGLY. AND MOVING ON TO VIRTUAL VERSUS INPERSON MEETINGS. I THOUGHT FROM TIME TO TIME, IT'S WORTH ASKING. DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE T HAVE OUR MEETINGS VIRTUAL. IS THERE SOME POINT IN TIME YOU WANT TO GO BACK IN-PERSON? JUST GETTING GUIDANCE AND

SEEING HOW PEOPLE FEEL? >> OPEN TO ANY COMMENTS.

>> IF WE CAN BE A RESOURCE SO THE CONVERSATION, WE CAN DISCUSS HOW WE MANAGE CHAMBERS PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AS WELL AS UPDATE YOU ON KIND OF INTERPRETATIONS ON GUIDE LINES.

SO WHATEVER YOUR PLEASURE IS, MADAM PRESIDENT.

[01:10:02]

>> CAN YOU PLEASE SPEAK TO PUBLIC PARTICIPATION HOW THAT

WOULD BE MANAGED? >> YEAH, I DON'T THINK WE HAVE EVERY PARTICULAR LOGITIC WORKED OUT ON HOW WE WOULD DO THAT.

BUT IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO BACK AND INTO A INPERSON SETTING, THE WAY THAT WE'VE SEEN OTHER JURISDICTIONS HANDLING IT AND LET'S JUST STAY LOCAL AS AN EXAMPLE AS THE SCHOOL DISTRICT IS REQUIRING YOU TO SIGN UP, SOMEWHAT IN ADVANCE BY NOON, THE DAY OF, AND THEN THEY'RE BRINGING PEOPLE IN ONE AT A TIME. IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THEIR IN-PERSON TESTIMONY TO THE BOARD MEMBERS THAT ARE PRESENT.

WE SEE SOME SIMILAR PRACTICES AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS.

YOU CAN HAVE SOME NUMBER OF THE MEMBERS OF PUBLIC, SOME NUMBER OF CITIZENS IN THE OR VISITORS IN THE CHAMBER SOCIALLY DISTANCED, BUT ON BIGGER ISSUES THAT WOULD BE HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHO GETS IN AND WHO DOESN'T. ON RUTINE MATTERS, IT WOULD NOT BE A BIG DEAL. BUT THE MOST FAIRWAY WOULD BE TO HAVE A SYSTEM OF SIGN UP AND IT'S, FIRST COME FIRST SERVE AND ONE OR FEW GET LET IN IN AN APPROPRIATE WAY AND SPREAD OUT IN THE ROOM AND TAKE THEIR TURN. THAT'S HOW I THINK IT'S BEEN MANAGED IN MOST PLACES. AND WE CAN ACCOMPLISH.

THAT ENSURES THAT WE DON'T HAVE , YOU KNOW, A LARGE NUMBER IN

THE ROOM AT ONE TIME. >> SO WOULD WE RESTRICT THE COMMENTS BY PHONE? I THINK ONE OF THE BENEFITS OF BEING ONLINE IS THAT IT'S ACTUALLY MORE EXCESSIBLE, ONE IS FEEDBACK AND ONE IS WOULD IT STOP IF WE MET IN-PERSON.

>> WE CAN STILL SUBMIT IN WRITING AND READ IT INTO RECORD AS MS. TRUST HAS DONE. AND BOTH MR. LINSAY AND MS. TRUST OR MR. OLIVER, FEEL FREE TO JUMP IN.

WE WOULD FIND IT CHALLENGING FROM A TECHNOLOGICAL STAND POINT TO MANAGE WHAT I WALL A HYBRID MEETING WHERE WE'RE MANAGING IN-PERSON AS WELL AS, VIRTUAL PARTICIPATION.

SO WE WOULD PREFER TO TRY TO DO ONE OR THE OTHER.

WINDOW WOULD STILL OF COURSE STREAM EVERYTHING AND THAT

ACCESS WOULD BE AVAILABLE. >> SORRY.

>> THAT'S OKAY, GO AHEAD. >> DO YOU HAVE MORE?

>> I LOST MY TRAIN OF THOUGHT. YOU GO RIGHT AHEAD.

>> I APOLOGIZE. >> THAT'S OKAY.

>> IF THERE ARE OTHER COMMUNITIES THAT HAVE GONE BACK

LIVE? >> YES.

>> I BELIEVE DUBLIN IS BACK LIVE, WESTERVILLE IS BACK.

AND THE SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS SOME INPERSON TESTIMONY ALLOWED.

AND MS. TRUST MAY HAVE TALKED TO SOME OF THE OTHER CLERKS.

AND I WILL DIFFER TO HER OR MS. STEWART OR MR. OLIVER WHO HAVE ALSO, MR. LINSAY WE'VE ALL BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS.

>> MR. GREESON IF I COULD. A NUMBER OF CITIES OR AT LEAST SOME CITIES NEVER WENT TO COMPLETELY VIRTUAL.

THEY LIMITED NUMBERS. THEY MET IN THEIR CHAMBERS.

OTHER CITIES CAME BACK SOONER AS THE STATE STARTED TO OPEN UP, HOWEVER THE STATE ORDERS NEVER EXPRESSLY ADDRESSED PUBLIC MEETINGS, COUNCIL MEETINGS, LEGISLATIVE MEETINGS.

AND SO IT WAS NOT CLEAR THEY WERE PERMITTED.

[01:15:03]

THEY STILL HAVE NOT BEEN A DIRECTOR'S ORDER THAT EXPRESSLY ADDRESSES THIS ISSUE. HOWEVER IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THROUGH MY MUNICIPAL ATTORNEYS LIST, THAT AT LEAST COUNTY WAS INFORMED BY EMAIL NOTIFICATION FROM THE OHIO HEALTH DEPARTMENT, THAT THEY CONSIDER COUNCIL MEETINGS THE EXERCISE OF A FIRST AMOUNT GOVERNMENT MEETING AND THAT FALLS WITHIN ONE OF THEIR PROVISIONS AND THEY DID NOT ANTICIPATE PROVIDING A SPECIFIC ORDER OR PRESS RELEASE ON THAT TOPIC.

THAT CLEARS WHAT WAS FOR MY CONSIDERATION A LEGAL HURDLE.

AND THEREFORE I ASSUME MORE CITIES WILL START TO DO SO AS THEIR COUNCIL DETERMINES THAT THEY'RE MORE COMFORTABLE

MEETING IN-PERSON AS WELL. >> SOL ARE THESE COUNCILS, OR

PEOPLE WEARING MASKS? >> YES, MASKS ARE MANDATORY.

>> MY COMMENT IS MORE DIFFICULT TO COMMUNICATE WHEN YOU HAVE A MASK ON AND UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER IN-PERSON IF THERE IS NO REASON FOR US TO GO BACK AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN TERMS OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH SITUATION. IN FACT IT SEEMS LIKE IT'S MORE DANGEROUS TO BE INSIDE THAN OUTSIDE AT THIS POINT IN TERMS OF TRANSMISSION, I DON'T SEE WHY WE WOULD CHANGE ANYTHING AT THIS POINT. I KNOW THIS IS A TOUCH POINT AND CONTINUE TO TALK ABOUT IT, BUT THAT'S MY FEELING.

AND WE HAVE NOT DWOT EN ANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE MEETING BEING ACCESSIBLE BY THE PUBLIC. I DO WANT TO POINT OUT THE SCHOOL BOARD WAS DOING A HYBRID FOR A WHILE.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY ARE NOW. I HAVE NOT SEEN RESENT MEETINGS BUT THERE WERE SOME MEMBERS FROM THE SCHOOL BOARD WHO WERE

COMING IN VIRTUALLY. >> YEAH THE FORMAT THAT I WOULD SPEAK TO AND OLIVER WOULD BE BETTER SUITED TO SOME OF THE CHALLENGES OF THE HYBRID FORMAT, MS. STEWART AS THEY MAY HAVE MORE PKZ AS WELL. --PARTICULARS BUT TRYING TO DO BOTH IN THE FORMAT UNDER THE TEAMS AND MEETING AND UNDER THE SWAGIT, THERE WAS SOME COMPLICATIONS BECAUSE YOU WOULD HAVE SOME LIVE MEET ANDING SOME OF THE CHALLENGES IF WE WENT TO A LIVE FORMAT TO MAINTAIN THE PUBLIC INPUT THROUGH A CALL-IN FORMAT WAS HOW WOULD YOU DO THAT.

IF COUNCIL LATER DECIDES THAT THEY WANT TO GO LIVE BUT HAVE A VERSION OF TELEPHONE CONTACT, I'M SURE STAFF CAN WORK FORWARD IN THAT DIRECTION IF THAT IS COUNCIL HE'SES DESIRE.

I WOULD ALSO POINT OUT THAT PART OF OUR DISCUSSION ABOUT COMING BACK TO IN-PERSON MEETINGS INCLUDED THE DEVELOPMENT OF FIELDS AROUND EACH OF THE COUNCIL STATIONS THAT WOULD PROTECT YOU FROM THE SIDES AND THE FRONT.

YOU WOULD BE SORT OF IN A CUBICAL.

WE WOULD AS WE DID FOR THAT, THE LAST LIVE MEETINGS THAT WE HELD, WE WOULD BE SPACING COUNCIL OUT EVERY OTHER FEET SO TO MAINTAIN DISTANCING AND THE PLASTIC SHIELDS.

THAT'S BEEN IN THE PLANNING PHASE.

MS. STEWART MAY HAVE MORE. >> WE WOULD BRING STAFF THAT IS MAKING PRESENTATION AND VISITORS COMMENTING ON AGENDA ITEMS IN FOR THOSE INDIVIDUAL AGENDA ITEMS, THEREFORE LIMITING THE NUMBERS THAT ARE IN THE ROOM A ONE TIME AND REQUIRING MASKS OF EVERYONE. THOSE ARE THE PROTOCOLS, NOBODY IS GOING TO DISPUTE THAT THE VIRUS IS STILL A THREAT AND ISSUE OF CONCERN. SO WE WILL WORK TO SERVE WHATEVER STRATEGY THE COUNCIL AS A WHOLE FEELS WOULD BE BEST FOR YOU AND FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO ARE INTERESTED IN OUR MEETINGS. AND I WOULD LIKE MR. LINSAY I WOULD WELCOME ANY OTHER STAFF TO COMMENT BUT CERTAINLY WANT TO TRY TO FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAY FOR IT WITH YOU.

>> I AS MUCH AS I LIKE ATTENDING COUNCIL MEETINGS IN

[01:20:07]

MY PAJAMAS, I VERY MUCH MISS THE IN-PERSON MEETINGS.

I HAVE REACHED MY VIRTUAL LIMIT ON WORKING AND SOCIALIZING AND I'M FINDING INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO CONDUCT BUSINESS STARING AT A PICTURE AS OPPOSED TO ACTUALLY HAVING AN INTERACTION WITH SOMEBODY. I THINK IT'S AFFECTIVE GOVERNORANCE AND BUSINESS. TO BE HONEST WHEN YOU DESCRIBE THE BUBBLE THAT I WOULD BE IN, I'M NOT CERTAIN THAT THAT IS ANY BETTER THAN LOOKING AT A PICTURE IF, I'M NOT GOING TO REACH OUT AND GRAB MR. ROBINSON'S ARM AND I DISAGREE WITH HIM. BUT IF WE CAN SOMEHOW MAKE THIS POSSIBLE, AND I THINK IT'S CRITICAL FOR THE RETREAT.

I WOULD MUCH RATHER PUSH THE RETREAT INTO FEBRUARY, MARCH AND APRIL AND HAVE IT IN APRIL THAN TO TRY TO DO SUCH OF--THE WHOLE POINT OF RETREAT IS THAT PERSONAL EXCHANGE.

AND I'M MISSING THAT FROM COUNCIL MEETINGS.

AND I FIND THAT DEEPLY TROUBLING AND DIFFICULT FOR ME PERSONALLY. I REALIZE I'M A LITTLE OLD SCHOOL AND LOOKING AT SOMEBODY'S EYE AND SHAKING THEIR HANDS MAY MEAN MORE TO ME. BUT I FOR ONE WOULD LIKE TO MOVE BACK TO INPERSON INTERACTION AS QUICKLY AS

FEASIBLE AND POSSIBLE AND SAFE. >> OKAY, OTHER THOUGHTS.

>> A POINT OF CLARIFICATION, DID I HEAR THAT IF WE DO GO BACK IN-PERSON, NOT ONLY WILL WE BE IN WHAT MR. MYERS BUT WEARING MASKS THE ENTIRE TIME INSIDE? WOULD IT BE OPTIONAL TO NOT WEAR MSK THE WHOLE TIME WHEN YOU'RE TALKING, OR WILL A MASK BE REQUIRED AND EXPECTED?

>> MR. ROBINSON, IT'S KAY. I BELIEVE THE REASON FOR THE ACRYLIC BARRICADES, THE DIVIDER IS SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A MASK. ONCE YOU GET TO YOUR SEAT.

THE MASK CAN COME OFF, YOU CAN PROTECTED BY THOSE DIVIDERS AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO LOOK AROUND THE ROOM AND SEE EVERYBODY.

THAT WAS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THAT'S WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT.

AND WHY WE THE GUYS ARE CREATING THOSE DIVIDERS.

>> MY REACTION IS I, I CARE MR. MYERS DESIRE TO COMMUNICATE IN-PERSON. I ALSO WITH MEMBER KOWALCKZYK'S STATEMENT. IT WILL BE MEMORABLE IN A STRANGE WAY BUT I'M OKAY EITHER WAY.

>> OKAY, OTHER THOUGHTS? >> YEAH, WOULD I ADD GIVEN WHERE WE'RE AT WITH THE DATA MY INITIAL FEELING IS TO WAIT ONE MORE MONTH PTENTIALLY TO FLUSH OUT DETAILS AND GET AGREEMENT FOR DETAILS. AND MR. LINSAY TO AT LEAST HAVE A PHONE DIAL IN OPTION SO WE'RE NOT EXCLUDING PEOPLE THAT MAY BE HIGH-RISK OR OTHERWISE UNABLE TO ATTEND THIS YEAR IN

PARTICULAR. >> MR. BOOKER AS WE KNOW, WE WILL HAVE VACCINE B THE 1ST OF NOVEMBER SO WE'LL BE SAFE.

>> SO, JUST TO RESPONSE WHAT I HEAR IS DESIRE FOR US TO WRITE-UP AN OPERATIONS PLAN FOR THIS.

BUT NO THERE IS, THERE IS NO MIXED OPINIONS ON WHETHER WE COME BACK IN-PERSON OR OR WITH ANY SPECIFIC TIME BUT GO AHEAD

AND DEVELOP THE PLAN? >> I THINK I'M HEARING NOT

[01:25:01]

OCTOBER BUT LET'S BRING THIS UP AGAIN.

LET'S SEE, MONTH BY MONTH, WE CAN HAVE A DISCUSSION TO SAY, ARE WE READY TO GO BACK AND ARE WE READY TO STAY BACK WHERE WE'RE AT. IT'S AN IMPORTANT DISCUSSION TOPIC FOR US TO REACH OUT AD COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER AND FIGURE OUT WHAT WE FEEL IS BEST AS A COUNCIL.

COMMENDING STAFF. I THINK WE'RE ALL APPRECIATE RECEIVING SOMETHING FROM YOU THROUGH OPERATIONAL THOUGHTS.

I KNOW THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WORKED VERY HARD ON TALKING WITH DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES HOW PEOPLE ARE HANDLING IT, AND WE APPRECIATE THAT. AND I THINK WE LOOK FORWARD TO

GETTING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. >> YEAH, OKAY, WE'LL GET IT ALL OUT TO YOU. THE PURPOSE OF THIS EVENING IS TO TEST YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT IT. RECOGNIZING THAT IN GENERAL, WE WOULD BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU A GENERAL SENSE OF HOW WE WOULD MANAGE IT. WE'LL FLUSH OUT THE DETAILS AND THEN WHEN YU'RE COMFORTABLE EXECUTING THEN, IF YOU EVER ARE UNTIL, YOU KNOW IN THE COMING MONTHS, WE'LL BE ALL PREPARED

AND HAVE AGREED UPON A PLAN. >> SOUNDS GAOTD.

--GOOD. >> MR. GREESON ANYTHING ELSE?

>> NO, JUST THANK YOU FOR THE MOMENT OF SILENCE TO MR. MUNISAKI WHO LOST HIS BATTLE AND JUST GIVE HIS FAMILY AND HIS EMPLOYEES OF FAMILY, WHO IS ALSO HIS FAMILY.

YOUR PRIVATE PRAYERS AS WELL. WE APPRECIATE THAT.

ADDITIONALLY, I WILL HIGHLIGHT THAT WE RELEASED THE MUNICIPAL CONDITION AGENDA PACKAGE, LATE LAST WEEK AND INCLUDED IN THAT AGENDA PACKAGE AND CERTAINLY IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT IT, MR. BROWN IS ON THE PHONE IS THE HIGH NORTH PROJECT WHICH IS THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE WORTHINGTON MALL WHICH YOU'RE BECOMING FAMILIAR WITH. AND SO IBELIEVE IT'S THIS THURSDAY SEPTEMBER, IS THAT THE 24TH, THE 24TH WILL BE THE FIRST OPPORTUNITY FOR MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO HEAR ABOUT IN MORE DETAIL AND PROVIDE COMMENT AS WELL AS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE APPLICANT TO RECEIVE FEEDBACK, NOT ONLY FROM THE PUBLIC BUT FROM THE MUNICIPAL PLANNING COMMISSION.

SO THEY'VE COME IN FOR THAT PURPOSE, I GUESS YOU CAN CONSIDER IT A CONCEPTUAL REVIEW. AND WE APPRECIATE THAT AND ARE EAGER TO SEE WHAT THE COMMISSION AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT PROJECT.

SO I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT AND MAKE SURE YOU'RE AWARE THAT IS COMING UP VERY QUICKLY. I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO REPORT. I BELIEVE WE SENT OUT INFORMATION REGARDING THEY THEN SERVICES TMORROW AND CERTAINLY CAN ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT.

BUT WHEN IT'S APPROPRIATE, MADAM PRESIDENT, I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST AN EXECUTIVE SESSION FOR THE PURPOSES OF CONSIDERING COMPENSATION OF PUBLIC EMPLOYEES.

>> ALL RIGHT, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON THE QUESTIONS ON THE FUNERAL ARANGEMENTS FOR THE LOSS OF OUR FIRE FIGHTER THAT WAS WITH US FOR SO MANY YEARS.

>> A QUICK QUESTION REGARDING THE NORTH HIGH COMMENTS.

MR. GREESON, DO YOU KNOW IF AND WHEN COUNCIL MEMBERS WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO DIRECTLY DIAL THE PROPOSAL?

>> YEAH, I BELIEVE, I DON'T KNOW SPECIFICALLY I KNOW THAT THERE ARE PLANNING ONCOMING BACK IN TOWN I BELIEVE IN EARLY OCTOBER. I THINK THAT THEY WILL BE WILLING TO ENGAGE ON IT. I THINK THEY'RE PREPARING RIGHT NOW FOR THURSDAYS ENDEAVOUR. BUT I THINK THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE QUESTIONS AND WANT TO ENGAGE WITH THEM, THEY'LL BE HAPPY TO DO THAT. IS MR. BROWN STILL ON?

[Reports of Council Members]

[01:30:01]

>> YEAH, MR. GREESON, I'M ON. >> I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO HELP RESPOND TO THE QUESTION.

>> NO, I THINK DEFINITELY OPEN TO HAVING THE PUBLIC DISCUSSION AND MORE THAN WILLING TO DISCUSS THEIR PROJECT IN THERE AND THEIR PROPOSAL WITH ANYONE IN THE COMMUNITY IF POSSIBLE.

>> THANK YOU. >> YOU'RE WELCOME.

>> I'LL BE IN TOUCH. >> YEAH, SURE.

>> OKAY. ANYTHING ELSE BEFORE WE MOVE ON TO REPORTS OF COUNCILMEMBERS? I WILL START WITH MR. BOOKER.

YES. I GIVEN AGAIN THIS IS OUR LAST MEETING UNTIL NEXT MONTH. SO WE HAD NOTABLE JUMPS IN THE UNOFFICIAL NUMBERS. DATA IS DELAYED AS TO WHEN THEY CAN GET TO THE SYSTEMS. WE'RE 93% AWAY FROM THE POINTS.

WHICH IS A BIG JUMP AND VERY DOABLE IN THE HOME STRETCH.

SO, AGAIN, JUST REALLY THANKFUL FOR ALL THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS THAT HAVE WORKED ON THIS ISSUE GOING FORWARD AND OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS RATHER AND WANT TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GO TO COMMUNITY ENERGY SAVERS.COM/WORTHINGTON TO FIGURE OUTWEIGHS THAT THEY CAN SEEK SMFT EFFICIENCY PROGRAMS AND EARN US A FEW MORE POINTS TO GET THE 60,000 IN GRANTS FOR OUR SMALL BUSINESSES. AND ADDITIONALLY IF I CAN TOUCH ON ANOTHER POINT. I JUST WANTED TO PUT A SHOUT OUT FOR THE VOTER DEADLINE COMING UP ON OCTOBER 5TH AND IF POSSIBLE, IF THERE IS ANY REQUIREMENTS IF WE CAN HEAR A SUMMARY IN OCTOBER AS WE HEAD TOWARDS NOVEMBER 3.

>> OKAY. >> I'M SORRY, I'M NOT SURE I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE ASKING STAFF?

>> IF THERE IS ANY GUIDE ANS FROM THE STATE ON FACE MASKS OR THINGS LIKE THAT, LIKE WE DID WITH TRICK-OR-TREAT SO THAT WE GET THAT INFORMATION OUT TO THE COMMUNITY IF THEY WANT TO VOTE

IN-PERSON. >> THANK YOU FOR CLARIFY THAT.

WE'LL CERTAINLY DO THAT AND HELP BROADCAST WHATEVER ADVISE

IS PROVIDED. >> WELL MR. BOOKER REMINDED ME OF SOMETHING. I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO FILL OUT THEIR CENSUS AND FUNDING DISTRICT DRAWINGS.

SO JUST PUT A PLUG OUT FOR DOING THAT AS WELL.

>> THAT'S ALL I HAVE. >> MR. SMITH.

>> I HAVE ONE THING, I DO LIKE THE NEW AGENDA FORMAT.

SO MS. TRUST I GUESS, AND STAFF. >> ALL RIGHT.

MR. MYERS? >> I JUST WANT TO PASS ON A COMPLIMENT THAT I RECEIVED FROM A CITIZEN THAT I TALKED TO MR. GREESON ABOUT. THE IMPROVEMENT TO HEARTY WAY.

THERE WAS A CIRCLE AT THE FAR EASTERN EDGE THAT IS NOW BEEN TURNED INTO WHAT THE RESIDENTS ARE DESCRIBING AS A FOOTBALL TO MAKE TRAFFIC AND PARTICULARLY TRUCK TRAFFIC EASIER TO GET AROUND. THE ONLY REQUEST IS THAT WE BRING OUT A ROCK CRUSHER SO THAT THEY COULD CRUSH THE FEW BOULDERS AND PUT THE GRAVEL TO COMPLETE THE FOOTBALL AFFECT.

BUT THEY'RE APPRECIATIVE OF THE REPAVING AND RECONFIGURATION OF THE STREET. IT'S MAKING TRAFFIC MUCH EASIER.

>> GREAT. >> WE'LL PASS THAT ON TO THE

ENGINEERING TEAM. >> AND PASS ON TO DAN THE

COMPLIMENT. >> WILL DO.

>> THAT'S ALL I HAVE. >> OKAY, MS. DOROTHY?

>> I WANT TO, I'LL PASS ON A COMPLIMENT TO DAN AND HIS TEAM ALSO. I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK AND TOUGHT WITH THE DIFFERENT METHODS THAT WE'VE BEEN TRYING TO SLOW DOWN TRAFFIC AND LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE FINAL RESULTS OF WHAT WE CAN DO POTENTIALLY.

EVEN IF WE DON'T USE IT IN THAT LOCATION, WE'LL HVE SOME GOOD DATA THAT WE CAN POTENTIALLY USE ON OVER WORTHINGTON.

[01:35:01]

BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT. >> ALL RIGHT, AND MR. ROBINSON, I KNEW YOU HAD SOMETHING YOU WANT TODAY BRING UP.

SO NOW IS YOUR CHANCE, PLEASE. >> MADAM PRESIDENT, THANK YOU.

YEAH, AS I, WHAT COMES TO MIND RIGHT NOW IS WHAT A SKUNK AT THE PICNIC, SORRY I HAVE TO BRING THIS TOPIC.

BUT AS YOU KNOW I SENT YOU AN EMAIL REGARDING THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND SPECIFICALLY THE 2014UMCH UPDATE. I'M PROBABLY GOING TO REFER DO MY EMAIL TO YOU SEVERAL TIMES IN THE NEXT FEW MINUTES.

WE DISCUSSED COUNCIL THE QUESTION AS TO WHETHER THE COMP PLAN UPDATE WAS SERVING US WELL OR NOT AND WHETHER WE CAN PERHAPS TALK ABOUT THIS AT THE RETREAT.

IN PARTICULAR, I'M NEWLY AARE THAT THERE IS A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY HOPING TO TALK ABOUT IT TONIGHT.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE PRESIDENT --PRESENT SITUATION THAT IS COMING BEFORE THE CITY.

STAFF WOULD BE OBLIGATED AND EXPECTED AND THEY WOULD REFER TO THAT PLAN WHICH THE PROPOSAL WOULD BE RESPONDED TO AND FACILITATED THROUGH THE PUBLIC PROCESS.

I DON'T THINK THAT'S A DESIRABLE POSITION WHERE THE STAFF WOULD BE PERCEIVED AS SUPPORTING A PLAN CONSISTENT WITH OR SUPPORTING A PROPOSAL CONSISTENT WITH THE PLAN THAT TO THE PLAN THAT WE LOOKED AT IN 2015.

THE CITY IS NOT IN A NEUTRAL POSITION, BUT IT IS IN FACT, ESSENTIALLY ON GOING CONTINUED ENDORSEMENT OF THE 2014 PLAN.

THE REASONS I'M PRESENTED IN THE EMAIL FOR DOING THE SENSABLE PATH THAT WOULD BE SUSPENDING TEMPORARILY THE ETHICACY AND I GUESS THE EFFECT OF THE PLAN, REALLY THE FOUR IDEAS. THE FIRST IS THAT THE UPDATE IS ALREADY OLD IN TERMS OF A YEARS IN CONTENT.

THE CURRENT PLAN DOES NOT ENJOY THE CONSENSUS STATUS, IT SAYS ITS CONSENSUS DOCUMENT AND I BELIEVE IT IS NOT.

[01:40:10]

AND PUBLIC FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT BELIEVE IT'S A CONSENSUS.

AND THIRD POSITIVELY, BY SUSPENDING IT, REALLY WHAT WE WOULD BE DOING IS CLAYINGER THE AIR, CREATING PSYCHOLOGICAL SPACE. IF IT'S SUBMITTED PLAN CONFORMS IN GENERAL WITH THE COMP PLAN. IT APPEARS THAT THERE ARE THREE LEGAL OPTIONS BEFORE US. A MORATORIUM REPEAL AND TEMPORARY SUSPENSION. THE MORATORIUM IS TOO EXTREME IN MY MIND. I HAVE NO INTEREST IN TRYING TO FREEZE ACTION OR ACTIVITY AT THE PROPERTY BUT RATHER TO PLACE THE CITY IN WHAT I WOULD CALL A NEUTRAL POSITION WHEREBY OTHER DEVELOPMENT CONSIDERATION AND THE CURRENT ZONING WOULD BE THE REFERENCE POINTS BUT WHERE ANY PROPOSAL WOULD HAVE TO STAND ON SOME MERITS. SO FOR THESE REASONS, I BELIEVE THAT THE ACTUALLY SUSPENSION WOULD BE DESIRABLE.

I WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS IT I DON'T KNOW IF IN ORDER TO FACILITATE DISCUSSION, I HAVE TO MOVE TO PASS A RESOLUTION ACHIEVING THAT OBJECTIVE OR NOT. MADAM PRESIDENT CAN YOU ADVISE

ME? >> YOU'RE MUTED.

>> YOU'RE MUTED. >> THANK YOU.

>> I WAS TRYING NOT TO INTERRUPT ANYTHING.

AT THIS TIME WE CAN TAKE SOME DISCUSSION.

AND I THINK WE MAY HAVE TO TAKE SOMETHING IN TERMS OF LAW DIRECTION IF TERMS OF WHAT IS BEST FOR THE MOTION.

ANY COMMENTS? >> YEAH, I'M, I'M A LITTLE TROUBLED THAT WE'RE GOING TO ENTERTAIN A MOTION TO SUSPEND, RESCIND SET ASIDE WHATEVER TERM YOU WANT TO PUT ON, A DOCUMENT THAT WAS YEARS IN THE MAKING. WITHOUT PUBLIC INPUT AND WITHOUT INPUT FROM STAFF AND REALLY WITHOUT A WHOLE ADVANCE NOTIFICATION TO ME. IF WE WANT TO SET THIS FOR AN AGENDA ITEM FOR THE FIRST MEETING IN OCTOBER, THAT'S PREPARE. --APPROPRIATE.

BUT I DON'T FEEL PREPARED TO ENTER INTO A DISCUSSION AND I

THINK IT LACKS TRANSPARENCY. >> OKAY.

OTHER THOUGHTS? NO ONE ELSE HAS A THOUGHT AT

ALL? >> I THINK WITH SOME COMPETING VARIABLES IN THE COMMUNITY, MAINLY DIVISIONING PROCESS KNOWING THAT THERE ARE SOME FOR THE NEXT MEETING, IT MAY MAKE SENSE WHAT MR. ROBINSON IS POTENTIALLY PROPOSING SO WE CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT THE PROPERTY ITSELF.

WITH ANOTHER COMMUNITY COMMENTS FOLKS WHO ARE PRESENTING MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR POTENTIAL PROPOSAL AS WELL.

SO THERE IS A LOT OF, IRONS IN THE FIRE THAT NEEDS TO BURN A LITTLE BIT AND IN ORDER FOR US TO HAVE REASONABLE CONVERSATION ABOUT THOSE, WE NEED TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THOSE AND I THINK THE ONLY WAY TO DO THAT IS SOMETHING LIKE WHAT MR.

ROBINSON IS PROPOSING. >> AS OPPOSED TO BRINGING IT UP FOR THE FIRST MEETING IN OCTOBER?

>> WHERE THE PUBLIC CAN ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE.

>> I THINK YOU MADE MY ARGUMENT AS WELL AS I DID.

>> THERE WON'T BE A PROPOSAL. >> I'M CNCERNED THAT THE WAY, THAT IT'S SET UPRIGHT NOW, I THINK MR. MEYERS HAS DESCRIBED IT ACCURATELY. THAT THIS IS A PRESIDENT THAT

WE'LL HAVE TO SET. AND WE'RE GOING TO SET IT ASIDE WHEN IT'S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR A PARTICULAR DISCUSSION.

AND I'M CONCERNED THAT THERE IS BEEN ALLEGATIONS ABOUT THE PLAN THAT I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE DETAILS FROM STAFF ABOUT AND OTHERS REGARDING WHETHER IT, WHAT THE IMPACT OF THE PLAN IS.

IN FACT ACCOUNTSER WOULD IT BE MAKE IT MORE WIDE OPEN SO WE CAN HAVE THINGS THAT ARE NOT WITHIN A PARTICULAR SCOPE.

I DON'T KNOW THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS.

THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS THAT WE HAVE.

AND I DON'T KNOW THAT RIGHT NOW WE HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION TO

HAVE THAT DISCUSSION. >> OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS?

MR. BOOKER? >> I AM NOT PREPARED TO HAVE THIS DISCUSSION TONIGHT BY ANY STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT OUR PLANS, WAT KIND OF WEIGHT OUR PLANS HOLD. I ASKED DO YOU WANT MORE PUBLIC INPUT INTO THIS LAND. IT WAS QUITE A PROCESS FOR EACH COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND OUT REACH.

I WOULD IMAGINE GET US TO ANOTHER ANOTHER COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. IT'S BUILDING UPON THE NEXT GENERATION. AND YES, THINGS CHANGE BUT, I'M NOT READY TO THROW AWAY ALL THE WORK THAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AS IT STANDS AT THE MOMENT.

>> IF I MAY, THE LAST ONE NOT TO SPEAK.

I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE OF THIS APPROACH BECAUSE THIS PROVIDES US WITH THE GREATEST FLEXIBILITY AND I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE TIMING OF US BEING AT THE LAST MEETING AT THE MONTH AND WHAT MAY BE AN APPLICATION FOR WHAT WE COME BACK AS WELL AS THE TIMING PROCESS WRAPPING UP AND NOT NECESSARILY BEING ABLE TO INCORPORATE THOSE.

IF WE DO SEE THE APPLICATION FOR THE SITE.

BUT I KNOW DEFINITELY AGREE COMMUNITY DISCUSSION IS NEEDED.

AND SO IF POSSIBLY SUSPENDING AND HAVING DISCUSSION IS NOT APPROPRIATE, THAT'S A MERIT WORTH CONSIDERATION.

BUT IF THAT'S AN OPTION, I SEE THAT COULD BE A VIABLE ONE.

BUT I AGREE, THERE IS A THING TO GIVE US PAUSE FOR CONCERN GIVEN WHERE WE ARE IN CERTAIN PROJECTS.

>> IF I MAY, IF WE DO SUSPEND, THIS POINT IS RAISED, WE HAVE NO COMP PLAN. WHICH MEANS WE DON'T HAVE HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS, WE DO NOT HAVE COMMERCIAL ON THE FRONT, RESIDENTIAL ON THE BACK, AS MS. KAWALCKZYK EXPLAINS, THIS IS WIDE OPEN. IF COUNCIL AND M.P. C WERE TO CONTRADICT THE PLANNING DOCUMENT, IT IS NOT THE CODE.

IT'S MERELY GUIDANCE, AND THAT'S ALL THIS IS. AND OTHER THAN THE DESIRE FOR A PARK, I HAVEN'T AND THE OPPOSITION TO RENTAL PROPERTIES I HAVE NOT HEARD CURRENT OBJECTIONS TO THE COMP PLAN, IS IT TOO HIGH TOO DENSE? IF WE JUST SET THIS ASIDE, MERELY A PLANNING DOCUMENT, THEN IT LEAVES IT WIDE OPEN AND I DON'T THINK LEAVING IT IN PLACE AND ALLOWING FOR APPROPRIATE AND TIMELY DISCUSSION CHANGES THE NATURE OF THE APPLICATION.

LIFE STYLES CAME THROUGH ALREADY WITH AN APPLICATION THAT THIS TOWN DID NOT AGREE WITH.

AND WHAT HAPPENED, WE HAD A CODE CHANGE.

LIFE STYLES WENT AWAY. I JUST DON'T SEE THE REASON TO

[01:50:02]

RUSH THROUGH A HAEFT' DECISION. >> MADAM PRESIDENT?

MAY I RESPOND? >> YES, GO AHEAD MADAM

PRESIDENT. >> THIS IS NOT HASTY OR RUSHED.

RECOGNIZED AS COMPLEX ISSUE. THERE IS NO WAY THAT WE CAN ADDRESS THAT APPROPRIATELY. SOME THINGS THAT CAN BE WRITTEN INTO THE RESOLUTION. AND BY THE WAY IT HAS TO BE INTO A RESOLUTION OF COURSE THAT THIS UPGRADE SUSPENSION THAT WOULD BE REVOKED AT ANY TIME.

SO IT WOULD SERVE A PURPOSE AS THE CURRENT DOCUMENT SO THAT IF A PROPOSAL IS MADE THERE ARE NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT HEIGHT, ABOUT MIX, SO NO, I THINK IT WAS BROAD BRUSH.

>> SO IN I'M AGAIN, I THINK WHAT WE'RE SETTING OURSELVES FOR BY RETAINING THE EXISTING 2014 PLAN, IF IT IS IN PLACE WHEN A PROPOSAL IS MADE. WE'RE GOING TO BE DOING WHAT WE DID FIVE YEARS AGO. AND THERE WILL BE MANY FOLKS IN THE PUBLIC WHO QUESTION WHAT THE CITY COUNCIL HAS BEEN DOING FOR FIVE YEARS T ALLOW THIS GROUNDHOG DAY EVENT TO HAVE BEGAN. I HAD TO CLEAR THE AIR AND ALLOW FOR ENCUMBERED BY THE 2014 UPDATE.

THAT'S IT. >> ANYBODY ELSE HAVE COMMENTS? I LIKE THE PROPOSAL IF IT HAS A SUNSET AS OPPOSE TODAY COUNCIL TAKING ADDITIONAL OPTION TO MAKE IT SUNSET.

SO THAT WOULD FORCE US TO HAVE A CONVERSATION OR BY NOT HAVING A CONVERSATION, WE'RE MAKING OUR POSITIONS KNOWN.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT SUNSET IS.

MAYBE IT'S THE END OF OCTOBER OR NOVEMBER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS REASONABLE. IF MR. ROBINSON PROPOSES SOMETHING TONIGHT, I WOULD SUGGEST A SUNSET.

>> I WONDER IF MR. LINSAY WOULD BE WILLING TO SPEAK TO THESE ISSUES AS TO WHAT WOULD BE OPTION FOR US.

>> MEMBERS OF COUNCIL BASED ON MR. ROBINSON'S EMAIL AND PRIOR

[01:55:04]

THOUGHTS AND DISCUSSIONS, STARTING EVEN BEFORE LAST JANUARY. THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT WE HAVE LOOKED AT, NOT IN EXTENSIVE DETAIL BECAUSE WE DIDN'T HAVE COUNCIL DIRECTION TO MOVE IN ANY SPECIFIC PATH.

AND MORATORIUM, OPTION IS THE ONE THAT PROBABLY MOST PARALLELS WHAT MOST COMMUNITIES WOULD CONSIDER DOING IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS AND THAT IS TO BASICALLY PROVIDE A PERIOD OF TIME IN WHICH NO APPLICATION COULD BE CONSIDERED AND THAT WOULD ALLOW TIME TO CONSIDER ANY CHANGES IN ZONING, COMP PLANS AND ANYTHING RELATED TO DEVELOPMENT OF A SITE.

SO THAT IS DONE BY COMMUNITIES, THERE ARE COMMUNITIES THAT WILL DO THAT AS NORMAL LEGISLATION WITH ITS NORMAL READINGS AND IT'S NORMAL AFFECTIVE DATES? THERE ARE ALSO INSTANCES IN WHICH CITIES WILL TAKE ACTION AS AN EMERGENCY BASIS.

SO AS TO PUT THE MORATORIUM IN PLACE, PRIOR T A PROPERTY OWNER APPLICANT SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION THAT MIGHT RESULT IN THE BEST THING OF RIGHTS IN THE ZONING CODE OR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OR OTHER GUIDING DOCUMENTS.

SO THAT APPROACH DOES EXIST. THE SUGGESTION OF THIS SUSPENSION, OF THE IMPACT OF THE COMP PLAN AT LAST AS TO ONE OR MORE PROPERTIES IS CREATIVE THOUGHT.

THE APPEAL OF THE ENTIRE COMP PLAN, WOULD BE I SUPPOSE ANALOGY CLOSEST TO THE SUSPENSION, THE REPEAL OF THE ENTIRE WOULD LEAVE NO COMP PLAN IN PLACE.

FOR THE PROPERTIES THAT MIGHT BE NAMED IN THE SUSPENSION.

THE SUSPENSION IN AND OF ITSELF, DOES NOT CHANGE THE ZONING PROPERTY. SO ANY OF THE PROVISIONS THAT HAVE SETFORTH IN THE ZONING CODE TAT RELATE TO THE PARTICULAR DISTRICTS IN TERMS OF USES AND DIMENSION REQUIREMENTS SETBACK OTHERWISE WOULD STILL BE IN PLACE, BUT THE PROPERTY WOULD NOT BE HAVE THE BENEFIT OF THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN WHICH PROVIDES A DESIRED OUT COM A GUIDING DOCUMENT TO HOW THE DOCUMENT SHOULD OCCUR.

SO THAT WOULD BE THE PROCESS, A RESOLUTION.

TO SUSPEND PORTION OF THE COMP PLAN, WOULD HAVE A SPECIFIC AFFECTIVE DATE OR CONCLUSION DATE.

YOU CAN DEFINE THAT DATE AND YOU CAN BE SUBJECT TO SOME OTHER ACTION, SUCH A SOME PERIOD OF TIME AFTER THE VISIONING COMMISSION, IF YOU WERE TYING IT TO ONE INFORMATION BEFORE. EITHER THAT IT WOULD REQUIRE TO TERMINATE IT OR THAT IT WOULD TERMINATE EARLIER THAN A SET DATE BASED ON COUNCIL ACTION. REVIEWING REVIEW LIKE A MORATORIUM AND THEREFORE I RECOMMEND THAT IT WOULD BE A SUBJECT TO COUNCIL HAVING THE PRIVILEGE TO TERMINATE IT

EARLIER THAN THAT SPECIFIC DATE. >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

ANY QUESTIONS? >> SO MR. LINSAY A RESOLUTION

[02:00:04]

COULD BE DRAFTED WHERE IT COULD BE THE CONCLUSION OF THE SUSPENSION WOULD BE AFFECTED BY COUNCIL ACTION AT ANY POINT IN TIME AS WELL AS, NECESSARILY AT A SUNSET DATE.

>> YES, COUNCILMEMBER. >> OKAY.

THANK YOU. >> AND AM I CORRECT THAT IT IS SUSPENSION, REVERTS BACK TO WHAT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN WAS FOR

THAT PROPERTY PRIOR TO THE 2014? >> IN GENERAL, YES.

A REPEAL OF APROVISION USUALLY THEN, REVERTS BACK TO WHAT WAS IN PLACE PRIOR TO THE ORDINANCE THAT IS BEING RVEALED OR RESOLUTION BEING REPEALED. IN THIS CASE, IF IT'S NOT AN ACTUAL REPEAL OF THE COMP PLAN. IT'S A SUSPENSION ANY AND ALL, COMP PLANS, PRIOR FOR THIS PARTICULAR PROPERTY IN WHICH CASE YOU WOULD BE LEFT WITH ONLY THE ZONING OF THE PROPERTY AS THE GUIDING MECHANISM. YOU WOULD STILL HAVE A IN PLACE ALL THE ZONING CODE PROVISIONS ON HOW TO COUNCIL AND/OR M.P. C WOULD NEED TO REVIEW AN APPLICATION.

IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU WRITE IT. I WOULD ASSUME, RIGHT.

IF IT WAS A SUPPORT ON COUNCIL TO MOVE FORWARD HOW WOULD WE BEST DO I AND THAT'S WHAT I'VE ATTEMPTED IN A SHORT TIME FRAME

TO THINK THROUGH. >> FOR INSTANCE, MR. MYERS, THE STAFFORD DID NOT HAVE COMPREHENSIVE LANGUAGE BUT IT WAS REVIEWED WITH SOME APPLICATION OF OTHER LANGUAGE RELATED TO HOUSING NEEDS IN THE COMMUNITY.

>> MR. MYERS. >> POLICY OF COUNCIL.

I WAS JUST WONDERING IF YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY GIVEN THE SPECIFIC NATURE OF WHY THIS DEBATES HAS ARISEN WHETHER YOU HAVE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY OF RAMIFICATIONS.

>> IN SPECIFIC ANSWER TO THE QUESTION, NO.

THE QUESTION IS ALWAYS WITH ANYMORE MORATORIUM.

THERE IS A LEGAL PROCESS IN WHICH YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH IT AND THEN THERE IS THE CONSIDERATION OF WHAT DEGREE AS EARLIER MENTIONED EITHER TRANSPARENCY OR PROCESS THAT YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH TO GET TO THAT HOWEVER, IN AND OF ITSELF, THE MERE FACT THAT SOMEBODY MAY OR MAY NOT BE PROPOSING TO DO SOMETHING, GENERALLY DOESN'T LIMENT THE ABILITY OF A CITY TO ENACT ORDINANCES OR REGULATIONS THAT MIGHT PROHIBIT SUCH ACTIVITY THAT WOULD BE BOTH IN THE ZONING CONTEXT AS WELL AS SOMEBODY'S PLANNING ON OPENING A PARTICULAR TYPE OF BUSINESS, YOUR ABILITY TO STEP IN AND SAY YOU CANNOT DO THAT.

MORATORIUMS ON THE MARIJUANA BUSINESSES WERE FREQUENTLY ADOPTED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO TO PREVENT ANYBODY FROM FILING A PREMATURE APPLICATION AS TO TRY TO VEST THE RIGHT TO HAVE A DISPENSARY OR A PROCESSING FACILITIES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY.

SO THE ABILITY TO DO IT IS THERE BUT IN DIRECTING, NO I HAVE NOT DONE ANY SPECIFIC RESEARCH AS TO POSSIBLE EQUAL PROTECTION CLAIMS OR OTHER INTERFERENCE WITH CONTRACTOR OTHER CLAIMS THAT SOMEBODY MAY TRY TO CREATE IF THEY WERE

OPPOSED TO ACTION BY COUNCIL. >> THANK YOU.

>> YOU'RE WELCOME. >> ARE THERE OTHER THOUGHTS

REGARDING THIS? >> MADAM PRESIDENT, CAN WE MAYBE AS MR. MYERS, A POSSIBILITY TO MAKE IT AN

[02:05:01]

AGENDA ITEM IN EARLY OCTOBER. >> I DON'T HAVE PROBLEM MAKE ITING AN AGENDA ITEM, I FEEL MORE COMFORT WITH THAT.

IT'S MORE TRANSPARENT. I HEAR PEOPLE SAY THAT WE NEED TO BE MORE TRANSPARENT AND TO MAKE A DECISION AT THE LAST HOUR THAT WE HAD LESS THAN 48 HOURS AS A COUNCIL AND LAW DIRECTOR AND EVERYBODY ELSE HAVING TO WORK WITH SOMETHING, I'M MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE PUTTING IT ON THE AGENDA IN OCTOBER. HOW DO OTHER PEOPLE HAVE AGREED WITH SOMETHING THIS AS AN AGENDA ITEM? I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE AGREEING TO THAT.

>> SOUNDS LIKE A REASONABLE COMPROMISE.

>> I THINK IT IS. I THINK LET'S, I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE RISK IS THAT WE MAY GET AN APPLICATION PRIOR TO THEN. AND IT WILL FALL UNDER, I BELIEVE MR. LINSAY THE EXISTING GUIDELINES IF THAT'S THE CASE.

>> CAN WE DIRECT STAFF OR CAN LET ME REPHRASE THAT, CAN INFORM ANY POTENTIAL APPLICANT OR ANY APPLICANT OF THAT PROPERTY THAT WE HAD THAT CONVERSATION IN ITS CONTEXT

REPORT. >> SURE.

>> OKAY. >> I MEAN.

I MEAN WE CAN. >> SO WE'RE GOING TO PUT THIS ON THE AGENDA IN OCTOBER. AND ANYBODY WHO HAS QUESTIONS FOR STAFF, OR NEEDS ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE DON'T DO REPLY TO ALL, BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND QUESTIONS TO MR. LINSAY OR MR. GREESON AND WHEN THEY GET THE ANSWERS THEY CAN PROVIDE LIKE THEY HAVE IN THE PAST.

WE NEED TO HAVE SOME GOOD DISCUSSION WITH IT AND HAVE THIS AN OPEN DISCUSSION THAT THE PUBLIC KNOWS OF IN ADVANCE AND HAS A CHANCE TO BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.

>> THANK YOU MADAM PRESIDENT, I'M ALL FOR TRANSPARENCY.

I WOULD NOT PROPOSE SOMETHING IN RAPID ACTION.

IF I WAS PROPOSING SOMETHING POSITIVE THIS I BELIEVE IS A PROPOSAL FOR MERELY A SES PENSION.

WITH THAT SAID, I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT IT IN OCTOBER. I WOULD URGE SOONER RATHER THAN LATER PLEASE. AND LEFT SIDES I WOULD

[Executive Session]

ENCOURAGE MY COLLEAGUES TO I ENCOURAGE MY COLLEAGUES IN TERMS OF PROCESS OF CREATING SPACE FOR THE COMMUNITY TO AND THINK CREATIVELY. THANK YOU.

>> ALL RIGHT, IS THERE ANY OTHER COUNCIL COMMENTS TO COME UP FOR TONIGHT'S MEETING. YOR WHERE I LEFT OFF.

SO I GUESS, MR. SMITH, MR. MYERS, I MOVE THAT WE GO INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION FOR PURPOSES TO CONSIDER COMPENSATION OF PUBLIC EMPLOYEES. SECOND BY MR. DOROTHY.

PLEASE CALL THE ROLL. WE'RE GO
