Members had received Mr. Mason' s written concerns prior to
tonight' s meeting. Following a brief discussion between members
of Council and Mr. Mason, Council explained to him that they will
be meeting with the Development Commission this evening in a
joint worksession immediately following tonight' s Council meeting
to discuss several concerns and issues.
No further comments, questions or concerns regarding this
matter was offered, discussion closed. A copy of Mr. Mason' s
list of concerns are hereby attached as part of these minutes.
Improvement Board -Councilmember Schnaidt reported that Mayor
Eisenberg and he attended the recent Improvement Board meeting.
At that meeting members voiced a concern that they are not
getting the cooperation from the Village that they need in the
area of tree and bush pruning, planting, etc..They felt it would
be possible to get their scheduled projects done because of a
lack of manpower and wondered if Council would give them a little
extra money to hire some help. They would need about $1375 to
finish out their projects for this year. They currently have some
monies left for work in the median, Opera House Park and from the
0. Robinson Foundation (1986-87 money). Mr. Schnaidt said he
asked the Improvement if they approached the Osse Robinson
Foundation for any money this year and the response was no. Mr.
Schnaidt said he suggested that they ask them first and then if
they need more then perhaps the Village could help.
Mr. Eisenberg commented that the Improvement Board do a
valuable service for the Village and we wouldn' t want to lose
Mr. Schnaidt stated that he told the Improvement Board
that Mark simply did not have the manpower or resources. Another
problem, is that no one wants to supervise the workers when they
do get help.
It was noted that for a few more dollars, they can get
skilled workers that need little or no supervision.
Mr. Schnaidt felt that perhaps they could get a retired
person who enjoys this type of work who would like to make some
extra money.
Mr. Schnaidt said if any members of Council know of someone
who would like to do this sort of thing to please to let the
Improvement Board know.
Mr. Eisenberg also mentioned that the Improvement Board have
several projects and maintenance scheduled for this year ,
such as removing bricks out of tree beds and bushes to be clipped
and trimmed.

Development Commission -Councilmember Malcuit commented that
since members received the Development Commission minutes of June
22, 1988 meeting earlier she would not elaborate on the meeting.
She mentioned that she will need to be replaced for the next
two meetings while she is on vacation.
Following a brief discussion members of Council selected
Councilmember Avery to serve in Ms. Malcuit' s absence.
Resolution No. 88-29, "A Resolution To Adopt the 1989 County Tax
Budget As Proposed And Direct The Village Manager To Submit It
To The County Auditor" was introduced, read in its entirety and
moved for passage by Councilmember Schnaidt. Motion seconded by
Councilmember Rader. Motion carried. Resolution No. 88-29 duly
Ordinance No. 7-88, "An Ordinance To Amend Ordinance No. 32-87
Providing For Adjustments Of The Annual Budget For The Fiscal
Year 1988 And Revising Sums For Capital Expenses", was introduced
and title read in its entirety by Councilmember Rader. A public
hearing on this ordinance was scheduled for July 20, 1988, at
7: 30 p.m..
Shafer/ Newhouse Storm Drainage Project -Manager Plunkett
mentioned to Council that when the Village received an eBtimate
for this project from Creston King for $3500 it was with the
condition that Village Service Department personnel did a portion
of the work which would include the rip-rap and cutting some
trees down. He explained to Council he did not feel the Service
Department personnel would be able to do this project with the
manpower shortage that they have and all the pre-scheduled
projects yet to be completed this year. If the project is held
off until after the leaf season, then they would run the risk of
not completing the project this year.
A lengthy debate followed between Manager Plunkett and
Village Council. Consensus of Council was to go with the project
the way they had agreed to do it.
Storm Sewer Drains -Manager Plunkett stated to Council that
when the Village received their sewer grant, one of the conditions
was, that storm drains hooked up to sanitary sewer system
be removed. He said one of the biggest violators is the Granville
Inn. He said Mr. Kent is prepared to disconnect the roof drains

but the Village has no storm seer outlet for his water. He said
legally, Mr. Kent only has to get his water to the street and
then it become the Village' s responsibility. Mr. Plunkett said he
would like an engineering study done to determine the best
solution to the problem. He said Mr. Turner has given him an
estimate of $1500 to do the engineering.
Following a lengthy discussion consensus of Council was
that they would agree to the engineering study being done with
the condition that the study include the option of accessing
half of the Inn' s storm water to Pearl Street and the other half
on Broadway.
Manager Plunkett asked to be excused from the next regular
meeting of July 20th for vacation. Council excused the Village
Manager from the next meeting.
It was noted to all in attendance that Council will be holding a
joint worksession with the Development Commission this evening
immediately following tonight' s Council meeting.
Councilmember Rader moved for adjournment. Motion seconded by
Councilmember Hughes. Motion carried.
Meeting adjourned at 8: 32 p.m..
Clerk of Council
July 6, 1988
1,. I am concerned over some recent decisions in Council
2. I expect all laws and ordinances of the Village to be
enforced by Council in all cases.
3. If there are laws and ordinances of the Village which in
their present form are not desirable or enforceable, I expect
them to be enforced to the extent possible, until they are
revised or repealed.
4. I believe that laws and ordinances should be written to
to avoid the need to make exceptions.
5. When Council starts making exceptions, I believe that Council
has repealed the law or ordinance.
6. I am concerned about Council' s attitude toward the Village
Development Commission. The skylight application on North
Pearl Street illustrates this. I believe that opinions
were expressed and statements were made by Council at the
Council Meeting on June 15, 1988, that were not based on
what I remember seeing and hearing in the Development
Commission Meeting on June 8, 1988.
