1.  ROLL CALL

Roll call for the evening found the following Council Members present:  Gary Anderson, Paul Manson, Donnie Peters, Larry Slagle and Tony Townsend.

Thus giving a roll call vote of 5 present.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Before I call on Mr. Manson for motions to excuse the absences.  I passed out Council Rule 4 regarding quorums and what it takes to transact business.  According to Rule 4 we do have to have a majority of the elected officials here which is 5.  We do have that there also is a provision if there are few than 5 the meeting can be adjourned by those present and you can then demand the presence of those who are absent the next day and the next day and the next day.  So if there were only 4 people here we could not conduct business but we could consider it a meeting and then we could call another meeting for tomorrow night according to the rule.  So Mr. Manson at this point how you like to handle the absences?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I would like to make a motion that we excuse the 4 absent council people Mr. Hersher, Mr. McCune, Mrs. Catazaro-Perry and Mr. Mang.  Seconded by Councilman Anderson.

5.  REMARKS OF DELEGATIONS AND CITIZENS TO MATTERS ON THE AGENDA

DAVID FROST – 1632 Amherst Rd NE, Massillon.  Okay on the variance for my fence on my property I’d like to know what’s going to be the decision for the councilmen.  Are they going to approve it or deny it?  They deny it I feel that I have been discriminated because if you go around Massillon around…Donnie, I have the floor please.  You do not talk to somebody while I have the floor it isn’t funny. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Yeah, you are funny.

DAVID FROST – You are. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Peters, Mr. Frost.  Mr. Frost, please make your comments. 

DAVID FROST – So anyway if you go around Massillon you will see fences and I feel that I have been discriminated.  All I ask for 3 foot high fence on August 11th Jim Triner states that the city don’t allow over 4 foot fence.  I’m not asking for 4 or 6 foot fence 3 foot so another words I am allowed to have a 3 foot fence on my property.  That’s all I ask for sir and I feel I have been discriminated.  I by the zoning board and by the committee here. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Your resolution will receive first reading tonight there will be no action on it tonight.  But they will discuss it again next Monday and it will be on…

DAVID FROST – I beg your pardon I thought we you weren’t allowed to discuss at the last meeting.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Excuse me?

DAVID FROST – How come there wasn’t discussed last meeting?  Or was it.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – I don’t believe it was on the agenda at the last meeting.  Are you talking the council meeting (Yes) it was not on the agenda at that time?  Now it’s on the agenda.

DAVID FROST – Alright, so now when do I have to come back to find out what you’re decision is?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – It will be on the agenda again two weeks from Monday.

DAVID FROST – What date will that be Mary Beth?

COUNCIL CLERK BAILEY – The 19th. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – The 19th.

DAVID FROST – The 19th at what time?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – And then it will also be discussed next Monday at the work session.  But they don’t have this opportunity for you to speak like you do tonight.

DAVID FROST – But I can attend the meeting?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – You may attend yes.

DAVID FROST – Okay, what time next Monday?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – That will be at 6:00pm next Monday right her.

DAVID FROST – Okay then the following Monday you said the 19th…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER –  The 19th at 7:30pm.

DAVID FROST – Okay.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Yes, that’s when a possible vote will be taken.

DAVID FROST – So there’s no discussion tonight then?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – No.

DAVID FROST – Okay.  Thank you, sir.  Thank you committee.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Alright, we will move into the ordinances and resolutions for this evening.  I although I was treating it somewhat humorously earlier it is a serious business when you don’t have enough people to transact business.  We have 18 ordinances and resolutions that will receive first reading tonight.  The reason being that there is three readings required by law and to suspend that rule requires seven votes.  Obviously with five people we can not reach that seven.  So all of these ordinances will receive first reading tonight.  Some of them are important to the extend that a special meeting will need to be called.  Mr. Manson will address that later in the meeting.  Madame Clerk would you please start with Ordinance No. 106.

10.  REPORTS FROM CITY OFFICIALS

A). MAYOR SUBMITS MONTHLY REPORT FOR AUGUST 2011 B COPY FILE
B). AUDITOR SUBMITS MONTHLY REPORT FOR AUGUST 2011 – COPY FILE
C). WARD BOUNDARY COMMITTEE

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Manson, we need a motion to accept the auditor’s report.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I move that we accept the auditor’s report, seconded by Councilman Slagle.

Roll call vote of 5 yes to accept the auditor’s report.      

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Now Item C we have a ward boundary committee all of you should have a copy of that dated September 6th.  Is there anyone who does not have that?  This is the committee that will be appointed to reflect possible changes in wards due to the 2010 census.  As was decided by you all at the work session all Members of Council, the Mayor and the Community Development Director Aane Aaby will be on the committee.  I will be the chairman we will call these meetings on the days when there’s a regularly scheduled city council meeting.  We may schedule extra work sessions if necessary.  Final report and recommendations will be completed by October 31st.  I’d just like to make the comment that this is really a very cut and dried exercise.  This is not what you hear in Washington or on the internet about working boundaries to kick people out or include people.  This is strictly a division of the city into equal populations in each ward.  We do not consider the number of registered voters, we do not consider voting record, voting trends or anything like that.  This is a very dull project that we’re embarking on.  At this point Mr. Manson will turn it over to you.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Yes, we have a number of finance particularly…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – I’m sorry I thought you were going to introduce this.  So let me do that.  Is there any discussion or comment on this committee?  Alright at this point I will just ask for a voice vote to accept this committee as it’s described on the paper here.  All those in favor…

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – I have a question before we vote.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – What’s your question.

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – Why are we doing a voice vote instead of you know something that’s…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – This is strictly a procedural matter.  Would you like a voice vote?

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – I would prefer that.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Fine, voice vote please.

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – And will also be documented?

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Will what be documented?

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – For the record that for this what we’re doing here.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Well, we put minutes out for every meeting.  So it will be in there.

COUNCILMAN TOWNSEND – Okay, alright.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – But I think if the votes are five nothing whether it’s by hand or by roll call it doesn’t matter Mr. Townsend.  Roll call vote please.

Roll call vote of 5 yes regarding the Ward Boundary Committee.

11.  REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

12.  RESOLUTIONS AND REQUESTS OF COUNCIL MEMBERS

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Are there any reports of committees any resolutions or requests of council members?  Mr. Slagle?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE – Yes, being a member of ward 1 and also council-at-large I would encourage any ward 1 persons that have concerns are free to call me regarding those concerns.  I’d also ask a member of as a resident of ward 1 and also a member of council if Councilman Mang is going to give us some sort of indication of his intentions.  He hasn’t been here since April 18th and at some point I believe we should know whether he intends to come back or not.  So…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – All I can do is refer you to a newspaper article from several weeks ago where Mr. Mang’s health is the only thing preventing him from coming back.  He has good days and bad days.

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE – I think the article though was taking everything on second hand accounts now discussing it directly with Mr. Mang.  The way I read it. So…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – It there anything else?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I’d just like to comment on that.  You know I feel kind of bad that Mr. Mang isn’t here.  I realize that it is a health problem it’s not any other reason.  I’ve been looking at stuff and there are cases where elected officials are ill for quite a period of time.  They are excused from their jobs as long as their intention or their hope to get back to work.  I think Gabby Giffords is a good example, Johnson that’s a representative out of North or South Dakota.  I think he’s a really good example he may have been off for a year.  So I think when it comes to health I think personally I intend to leave it up to that individual. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – I might indicate that this is September and there is an election in November.  So more or less will take care of itself.  Getting back to the ward boundary committee I will announce tonight that our first meeting will be on the 19th at 6:30pm.  Mr. Manson, you would like to talk about a special meeting.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Are we moving on now?  (Yes)  Okay, yes, we have a number of things here that are up for first and second reading that need to have some attention.  One was about the insurance that has to be done before September 14th and one is for the treasurer and there’s other ones in here that I know that I talked with the auditor today and she would like to see prompt action on them.  So I’m recommending that we have a meeting at 5:45pm on Monday.  I need the support of another two council people at least to call that meeting.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Are you indicating support for that meeting?

COUNCILMAN SLAGLE – I am.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Peters?

COUNCILMAN PETERS – I am but I have questions.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Alright, but first of all to call the meeting for next Monday at 5:45pm.  We have the three council members because it is a special meeting we need to be specific about the agenda items.  So would you please indicate at this point what agenda items you would like on that.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Let me clear that up for you for tomorrow and it can go out in an email from our clerk to everybody.  I do know that we do need to act on the insurance and we do need to act on the ordinance that applies to the treasurer so that they can start you know taking bids from the banks to see where they are going invest the money short term.  But I would…

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Slagle and Mr. Peters is that alright with you if we wait till tomorrow to find…

COUNCILMAN MANSON – I’d rather give you a complete list.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – What’s on the agenda?

COUNCILMAN PETERS – I’m not comfortable with that. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Alright, what is your question.

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Well my question isn’t and I’m not being hard to get along with.  I mean I don’t have a problem but I think I don’t what I’m afraid of is I don’t want to get into an agenda where we’ve got everything that’s up for first reading on the special meeting.  I mean just tell me that’s not going to happen and I’ll be happy.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Well, I would say we limit it to finance.

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Okay and then I’m happy with that.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – And if there’s part of finance that don’t need it and somebody wants to remove them from the agenda we can amend those specific ordinances and remove them.  But I…

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Yeah, if its just finance why don’t we just say right now…

COUNCILMAN MANSON – But I mean there are I believe there would be about five finance ordinances. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Why don’t we just put that in to say now we’re going to put all five of them on there.  Heck with it.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – If it is five I’m just guessing lets look at them here and see exactly how many there. 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Be sure to communicate with the clerk so that’s on there when we put the notices out. 

COUNCILMAN MANSON – There’s two for second reading and three for first reading.  So I would say we limit to the five, three first readings, two second readings for finance. 

COUNCILMAN ANDERSON – 1, 2, 3, 4 for the first reading.

COUNCIL CLERK BAILEY – Total of 6 finance.

COUNCILMAN PETERS – Well, I’m going to have to dig out my backpack. 

COUNCILMAN ANDERSON – 4 for the first reading and two I think for the second?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – No, I only see three for the first reading oh and the resolution and the resolution I’m sorry the resolution I didn’t I’m sorry.  Yes, there’s three ordinances one resolution on first reading and then there’s two finance on second reading.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Just let the clerk know what you want on the agenda. 

COUNCILMAN PETERS – And I’m happy with that as long as its just finance.  Okay.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Is there anything else from any council member?

13.  CALL OF THE CALENDAR

14.  THIRD READING ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – We have several items for third reading.  These are up for a vote there’s no need to suspend the rules and we do need to have a majority of council vote for these for passage that would be 5 votes. If the vote is 3 to 2 tonight that ordinance will not have passed.  You need 5 votes to pass any ordinance.

Authorizing the Director of Public Service and Safety of the City of Massillon, Ohio, to enter into a contract with CTI Environmental, Inc., for professional services for Roughing Filter Odor Control Analysis, Phosphorous Removal, and a Facility Plan Update at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, and declaring an emergency.

 

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Mr. Manson, and I’ll also remind anyone that a motion to table is always an option if you feel uncomfortable bringing these up for a vote.  Mr. Manson.

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Yes, I’ve talked with Mr. Hersher about this.  We’ve had discussions I don’t there haven’t been very many questions.  If there’s anybody has a question or a problem right now we have the engineer here that I’m sure can handle that.  Otherwise I’m recommending that we bring this forward.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Is that your motion?

COUNCILMAN MANSON – Unless there’s any questions yes it is.

COUNCIL PRESIDENT GAMBER – Are there questions?  There are none.
