we still have that money sitting there? Finance Director Smith answered we don’t
have the money yet, we have to draw down that but we have been awarded the
grants. One is American Recovery Act grant and the other I believe the Ohio
Department of Safety. Chairman Bring asked so we haven’t received the $33,000.00
yet? Finance Director Smith answered no we have not received the cash. Chairman
Bring stated so we are working on the matching funds and then we will move
forward on that, correct? Finance Director Smith answered yes there is a lot of things
to put together. Chairman Bring stated I didn’t know if we had actually ever received
that money and I just wanted to make sure that we didn’t spend it on anything else.
Finance Director Smith answered no. Chairman Bring thanked Herb Dela-Port for

***********************ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS***************
Smith advised in your packets tonight there is an ordinance for appropriation
changes, Council#037. You will see there is several increases/decreases and
establishing some new accounts. The establishing account (107.710.5610) is for
the Community Center solar project. Now that we have a better handle on what we
are actually getting from where, I have established all those and where all the
monies are going to be set up to cover that project. Let me go over quickly; general
fund, there are increase and decreases that ends up as a net 0 change to general
fund. Any increases are counter-acted with a decrease somewhere else. We have an
increase in office expenses for court, there is some new shucks that were required
by Lorain Muni. They changed their shucks and then they require us to get the
same ones. So that was something that we didn’t expect. Law Director Graves
added we were able to add our order onto Lorain’s so that we got the better rate
because they order in such a huge bulk. Finance Director Smith advised I have an
increase in insurance, there is a chance that we have to pay a deductible on a very
old case that has finally been settled and unfortunately we have to pay our part. So
I wanted to be prepared for that. There is an increase in election costs, there is new
rule changes in 2007 that allows the Board of Elections to charge back all sorts of
fees to city’s, villages or schools – they can charge back their part time hours, their
supply costs. They weren’t allowed to charge all that back prior to 2007, so I got a
little surprise just this last week on how they are going to get us for some more
money. There is an increase for note principal and interest. There is actually a
couple throughout here. Our regular note that we renew in June with First Merit,
they just asked us to pay our interest quarterly. It is no big deal, it is not any more –
it is just we are paying in shorter increments. So I am just setting that up so we can
pay 2 by the end of this year and then 2 more next year, so we will just do that on a
regular basis from now on. She continued part-time increase for the Police because
C091410.doc.docxPage 3 of 8
we are still short on some full-time folks. So we have got to make it up there.
Increase for the Building Inspector and that is still due to an on-going personnel
costs that we can’t really get around. Then that all goes down through medicare
and PERS. Stormwater in the parks, those are actually revised costs that since the
boat launch got changed around we have got impervious surfaces. We did a little
reassessment of all our numbers so actually we pay more to stormwater for the
boat launch. We have got a little change in 202 and 205just to make sure that we
have money through the end of the year in materials and supplies for repairs. 208 is
Ferndale II, they just sent me the statements and I should be getting the schedules
on repayment but I went ahead and figured those out for myself because I know
what we are going to owe by the end of the year. So then CDBG; solar projects,
Solid Waste; solar project and State Grant; solar project – those will all cover and
get us ready for that, so we can get our money in and start that project. Councilman
Rosso asked on that insurance one; that claim was being settled or we are
anticipating that it is going to be settled? Finance Director Smith answered no it
has already been settled but there is even an argument that we might not or not sure
that we are even going to have to pay the co; our portion – like a deductible. But I
am still arguing that fact but I just want to be prepared, trust me I am not going to
pay it if I don’t have to. Law Director Graves advised this relates to a matter that
was recently resolved but when it was pending was filed in a group of different
lawsuits, there was several different things going on at the same time. We were
represented by insurance defense counsel and we had met our deductible on at least
1 of those matters. I believe at this point they are trying to say that there is another
deductible due for a subsequent portion of that and I think we are still looking into
whether or not the original deductible would have covered the representation for
the whole cumulative matter. Councilman Rosso stated but the whole thing is done
now, this is just whether or not we owe the deductible. Finance Director Smith
stated splitting hairs. Councilman Bring asked that was for the former Building
Inspector – that $10,000? Finance Director Smith answered he is still not former
though but that is what that is. *Motion by Huska/Second by Bring to accept the
None./SERVICE DIRECTOR: Service Director Smith reported I only have a few
items this evening. The street list was completed by Cook Paving on Friday,
September 10th. So we are done with what was on the list. We have equipment
mobilization of the water tower and the equipment that is being moved into place
by Dentz Painting to do that. They have a lifting hoist and stuff like that, that they
are procuring which is all supposed to be on site this week. A couple little notes; it
is acrylic latex as required by spec and it will be rolling and spraying light blue and
traffic will be limited in the park during the time that they are there. I do not have
an estimated time of completion at this time. We did get 2 used trucks, now we are
totally ready for our winter. We are doing a winter prep on all our winter
C091410.doc.docxPage 4 of 8
equipment so that as soon as the weather turns we will be ready to go. Councilman
Kovach stated a couple of weeks ago I received a call from one of our constituents,
in regards to clearing the roadway on the south end of all the streets off of Ferndale
and we had talked about that. You said that you had had that on your summer list
and you hadn’t gotten to it yet. Service Director Smith answered no Ed is going to
be doing that, we discussed it 2 days ago. He has got a list of stuff to give priority,
he had done from Idlewood west and now he is going to do from Idlewood east.
Councilman Bring asked at the end of Grantwood going to the lake, we are not
going to do that this year? Service Director Smith stated I am going to try to do
that this year. It will take approximately 5 working days. *Motion by
Huska/Second by Bring to accept the report. Yeas All./LAW DIRECTORS
Law Director Graves repoted continue to work on a lot of projects that
you are aware of, as we have already discussed the internet cafes. I would draw
your attention to the Civil Service Commission meeting of September 22nd at 5:30
pm. Their primary topic for discussion will be advertising for an entry level police
test and to get an updated eligibility list with the Police Department. That tests
hasn’t been run in some time. He reviewed legislation that may be added to the
agenda. *Motion by Huska/Second by Bring to accept the report. Yeas All.
Doris Nay, Dunny stated I have been there for over 30 years. I would like to know
why our Mr. Graves lied on my son in court because he didn’t like what he had to
say in open court. He is a liar and I don’t want him. President Podmanik
interrupted and advised Mrs. Nay before you get too far involved in this, this is
citizens commentary. If you have something to discuss with Mr. Graves, this is
probably not the forum for that. Mrs. Nay stated this is where I have to do it
because he will not talk to me on the phone. Law Director Graves answered that is
absolutely not true. President Podmanik stated I am not going to speak for Mr.
Graves but I will say this – I will maintain civility in this chambers. Mrs. Nay
stated that is fine with me, I just want to know why the people in this council put
up with him. President Podmanik advised I am not going to get involved with this
because I don’t know a whole lot about it and I don’t think the rest of Council does
either. If you have something to take up with Mr. Graves you should probably do it
after this meeting, I am sure that he would be more then willing to sit down with
you. Mrs. Nay stated no he is not. Law Director Graves stated I have never refused
to speak to anyone Mr. President. Mayor Piskura stated I actually am aware of
mostly what Mrs. Nay’s concerns are. I have talked to her on the phone, I did do a
preliminary look into what she is talking about. The fact is that the matter is under
investigation, not only from my office but criminally and I went on further to say
that I would love to do whatever I can to make sure that she feels like she has been
taken care of and that I requested that she put her complaints or concerns in writing
and that I will pursue it further. Other then that, there really is nothing else to say
C091410.doc.docxPage 5 of 8 unless you have some new questions which I would be more then happy to discuss with you after the meeting. Mrs. Nay stated let’s put this way my house caught on fire 3 weeks – set on fire. My grand-daughter who is 28 years old and she is bi-polar, she set the fires. Mr. Graves would not arrest her, the Fire Department told me that she was the one that done it after their investigation and after they took her to the hospital. President Podmanik advised before you get any further, I think we are treading into grounds that are still under investigation. Law Director Graves advised this entire matter is still under investigation by the Police Department and Fire Department and that has been told to Mrs. Nay on numerous occasions. Mrs. Nay disagreed no it hasn’t. President Podmanik stated so discussing it here is probably improper. Mayor Piskura stated honestly to keep everybody protected not only Council and the Prosecutor’s Office and my office but Mrs. Nay and her family – we would probably be better off to discuss this elsewhere. Even if you would like somebody else present, I would be more then happy to bring a couple of Council people in if you feel like you are not being represented but this really isn’t appropriate for a public meeting. Mrs. Nay stated well I am sorry but when somebody sets my house on fire I expect them to be arrested or whatever. But Mr. Graves and Tony Campo told the Fire Department to go home, they weren’t going to arrest her. They took her to Community Hospital for 3 days and when she out of Community Hospital she took 27 Seroquel. President Podmanik advised Mrs. Nay before you go any further I am going to stop this, if you don’t have anything other then this discussion I am going to ask you to take your seat. We won’t discuss this in this forum. If you want to discuss this at any time, I will excuse the Mayor and the Law Director right now if you would like to speak with them. After the meeting if you want to speak with members of Council about it, after the meeting then we are more then willing to listen. As they said this is probably improper to be discussing this as it is still under investigation. Mrs. Nay stated it is not under investigation, that is a lie. President Podmanik stated I don’t have anybody’s word but theirs and I take their word for it. I am not anything but the President of Council, not the Mayor or the Law Director – they tell me it is under investigation, that is as far as it is going to go. Mrs. Nay stated it hasn’t been because he told me. President Podmanik stated they have made the offer – plenty of witnesses, after the meeting they are more then willing to sit down and listen to what you have to say but I don’t think you want to discuss this out in the public like this. Mrs. Nay stated I want everybody to know what he has done and what he hasn’t done. President Podmanik stated well you could probably do that on your own, contact the media whatever you think you need to do but at this point and time we are not going to go any further with this conversation. Do you have anything else to say, tell us how bad the roads are, tell us how good or bad a job we are doing – this is the time. Other then that, this issue is done. Mrs. Nay stated alright fix my street. They put a pile of garbage in the holes and then 3 or 4 weeks later they are out again. I don’t C091410.doc.docxPage 6 of 8
know how come this can’t go a little further when they put it up to 808 Dunny but
they couldn’t come all the way down. I would like to know why? President
Podmanik answered I believe at one point and time when this was discussed,
nothing south of Ferndale was going to be worked on until Ferndale was done.
Now we are going to start planning to do some of the streets. Mayor Piskura stated
we have been knocking them down one at a time. President Podmanik stated we
have a plan in place, it is slow but it is working. I am not going to say it is perfect.
We do the best we can with what we have got. Mrs. Nay stated for a city that has
got so much money and paying him $95,000.00 a year – that is critical.
Robert Ebenschweller, 362 Cove Beach stated correct me if I am wrong but is the
month where the contract with North Coast is up? Law Director Graves answered I
will have to look, I think October. Mr. Ebenschweller stated basically is Council,
have they had discussions with them on any possibilities that would kind of give us
some kind of idea/some kind of hope. You know we hear things like well good
things are coming but that is all. Isn’t there anything that we could feed on right
now? I am tired of looking at the windmill, I want something else to see. Where do
we stand? I think Mark addressed this, are we going to issue an extension to them
if they haven’t come up with anything? Mayor Piskura answered I am with the
Law Director/off the top of my head Bob, I am not real sure when that agreement
expires – it came to mind that that agreement was just an option. It was an option
for them to purchase. Not only have they steered some prospects our way which
the Service Director is actually working on right now but we actually have a very
good prospect that we were independently working on and to answer your question
– no, there is nothing that I can tell you publicly yet. Mr. Ebenschweller stated a
time line or anything that you could give us? Mayor Piskura answered I had hoped
to already be able to be talking about it publicly. What I can tell you is that the
people that we are talking to are rather large and their machine and their red tape
bureaucracy is significant. So it is taking them a little bit longer then we thought
and if you need any further details I would be more then happy to talk to you after
the meeting as well.
Mark J Erdei, 4015 Tennyson stated I was just wondering what Cuyahoga County
is going through right now. Have you caught anything from our county, are we
going to have to be using these Spanish ballots and all that? Mayor Piskura advised
that is actually up to the Board of Elections and I know not sure if they tossed the
issue. That is not up to us at all. I haven’t heard anything like that, as a matter of
fact I don’t even know what they are talking about. Mr. Erdei continued I get a lot
of people that approach me since our Community Days was over, I don’t know if I
didn’t catch it or I missed it – did we do okay on the festival? Councilman Kovach
answered we did okay, just a hair better then last year. Councilman Rosso stated
that is not the city – that is Civic Counsel. Councilman Kovach advised but I am
answering in that capacity. Mr. Erdei stated well people ask me and I don’t have
C091410.doc.docxPage 7 of 8
the slightest clue. Mayor Piskura advised right now there is a partnership between
the city and Community Civic Counsel to make sure that the fireworks display
continues. Prior to the city owning the shopping center; the Levin Family Trust or
the owners of the shopping center put on the fireworks. Beyond that, the function
has always been sponsored and run by Community Civic Counsel so right now the
city’s only involvement other then to logistically help Community Civic Counsel is
to partnership in making sure that the fireworks go on. But Councilman Kovach is
the President of Community Civic Counsel. Mr. Erdei stated I just didn’t know if
we leveled out or broke even, I mean people ask me? Councilman Kovach
answered just a hair better then year and by a hair I mean a small hair. For the state
of the economy and how everything is going and how people are watching their
money, basically we did outstanding by last year’s standards. Councilman Smith
clarified it is not a city function, the city makes nothing.
