AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE NO. 2016-6, KNOWN AS THE SALARY ORDINANCE, TO REFLECT THE CORRECT WAGES OF THE POSITION OF THE CHIEF OF POLICE.

Stewart moved, Baird seconded to pass this ordinance on its first reading under suspension of the rules.

Mr. Madison asked what the process is for increasing department head salaries across the board? Mayor Brinda said that the intention is to complete the salary study because there are a number of positions that are not competitive in the City. Once that is completed that information will be brought back to council. Some suggestions have been to eliminate longevity and setting a salary range and cost of living increases.

Mr. Madison asked what happens if another department head comes forward asking for a range? Mayor Brinda answered that once those would be addressed after they have the results of the salary study. Mr. Tanner asked the Finance Director what the salary increase is equal to. Mr. Pileski said the differential between the chief and the captain’s pay is 14.5% but the actual increase the chief will be receiving is 9.3%. Mr. Jessie stated that the chief is concerned about the salary down the road so that the salary is competitive to attract the right candidate after he leaves. Mr. Madison explained that his concerns are related to the process. Mr. Madison agrees that the City wants to make sure there are competitive positions across the board. So, without a clear understanding of the process, it’s hard for him to vote in

the affirmative. He feels the chief is deserving of a raise, he does great work here in our City and we should do everything we can to keep him, but his concerns are how it relates to the process.

BUSINESS OF THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE MEETING

1. Approval of October 30, 2017 Community Development Meeting Minute.

Cerra moved, Jessie seconded to approve the minutes from the October 30, 2017 CD Meeting.

MOTION CARRIED

2. The matter of amending the ECO 1127.05 (A) to add up to 3 alternates to be placed on the Board of Zoning Appeals. REFERRED BY: Assistant SS Director Brubaker

The committee already received information on this matter and did not need to discuss it.

Mitchell moved, Cerra seconded to approve the amending of Elyria Codified Ordinance 1127.05(A), to allow up to 3 alternates to be placed on the Board of Zoning Appeals.

MOTION CARRIED COMMITTEE REPORT WRITTEN 3. The matter of an Ordinance Authorizing the Mayor to Co-Sign a Petition to Annex 36.15 acres of land from Eaton Township to City of Elyria.

REFERRED BY: Law Director’s Office

Ms. Deery explained that this matter went through Council a short time ago but the petition was struck down by the County Commissioners for technical reasons, which was not due to any errors or flaws on the part of the City. The attorneys who are advocating for the petition will try to get it passed again. Therefore, the process needs to begin again and it starts with an ordinance for the Mayor to co-sign the petition to get the process started. The request is asking to annex land into the city that is presently in Eaton Township. The land is being proposed to be developed in the future.

The Mayor added that this issue has been going on for almost 2 years, between the Developer and the City. There are plans to develop the property between Chestnut Ridge up to this area. The Developer would prefer to have City services rather than township services for this large development. Another issue associated with this is the traffic concern. The City cannot resolve the traffic issue alone because we don’t own all the property. At that intersection there are 3 owners; Elyria, Eaton Township and the State (ODOT). We control the traffic signal, but Lorain County controls the road. On the other side of the intersection is a combination of Carlisle Township, Eaton Township and Elyria. The traffic concerns won’t be addressed until the City has a little more control over the situation.

A Motion was made by Mitchell, seconded by Cerra to approve authorizing the Mayor to Co-Sign a Petition to Annex 36.15 acres of land from Eaton Township to City of Elyria.

MOTION CARRIED COMMITTEE REPORT WRITTEN Cerra moved, Mitchell seconded to adjourn the Community Development Meeting at 6:15.

Submitted by,

 

Colleen Rosado, Secretary
