Mrs. Elmore read the following report from the Public Information Committee meeting:

 

PUBLIC INFORMATION COMMITTEE

FEBRUARY 1, 2019

 

               The Public Information Committee met on Friday, February 1, 2019 at 2:10 pm in open session in Council Conference Room after proper notice given to the public.  Present at the meeting was Tracey Elmore, Chair;  Council members Brent Buehrer and Scott Noonan; Curt Smith, IT Manager, Joe Camp, Amber Rathburn and Leslie Lipper from the City; Nancy Gagnet from the Mirror and Bud Thomson, Civil Service Commission member.  David Kissinger could not attend and participated via phone.  The purpose of the meeting:

·                                        Matter of the creation of an official city Facebook page

               The meeting began with Ms. Elmore providing information on the City Facebook pages of three local communities; Perrysburg, Sylvania and Bowling Green.  Each community has had an active official city Facebook page for a minimum of three years, all with 3,000 or more followers.  Each community utilizes the page solely for the dissemination of information including traffic news, current events, weather alerts, government business, city property for sale, school news, chamber news, city services, construction alerts, and for sharing posts from the local police and fire pages.  All municipalities allow comments on their posts but will only reply when the answer would be beneficial to the public.  Any unnecessary or negative comments are “hidden” and not deleted, to comply with records retention requirements.  They also all utilize Twitter for news and updates.

               Mr. Buehrer expressed a concern over how much time could possibly be spent monitoring the comments as well as deciding which ones are questions versus opinions and then either answering or “hiding” them.  Each municipality utilizes 1-3 persons who are authorized to post and monitor the page on a daily basis and the time spent doing so ranges anywhere from 15 minutes to 1 hour a day.  It was also noted that the three communities listed above all said that after a few months of being active that any negative comments or opinions in general from the public decreased to an insignificant number, making the time investment minimal.

               Mrs. Lipper expressed a concern over how an administrator of the page would decide which posts were appropriate to publish on the site.  It was pointed out that since the page is for informational use only that the litmus test would be:

·                  If it’s something that would be announced at a council meeting

·                  If it’s something that would be published in the quarterly city newsletter or newspaper

·                  If it’s something that is the public’s best interest to know

If the question still remained, it would then be directed to the City Administrator, Law Director or Mayor for final approval.

               A copy of Bowling Green’s Social Media Policy was distributed as a template for a guideline for posting on a city Facebook page, which would be easily adaptable for the City of Maumee.  Other items that could be included on the page include a city directory with contact information, links to other pages such as Police, Fire, Schools, the city website, the Historical Society as well as a summary of what the page is intended for.  The IT Manager will investigate possible ways for the city page to automatically share posts with and from other selected pages, reducing the time required to keep the page updated.

               Mr. Buehrer made a motion to create a Facebook Page social media policy, with the Law Director using the templates from Bowling Green and Perrysburg and adapting it for the City of Maumee, and then sending it back to this Committee for review and ultimately to the Committee of the Whole for discussion and approval.  Passed 2-0.

               Mr. Buehrer made a second motion that the IT Manager work in conjunction with Leslie Lipper, Public Services Department Secretary, to create a mock-up sample of a city Facebook page which will be sent back to this Committee for review and ultimately to the Committee of the Whole for discussion and approval.  Passed 2-0.

 

               This matter remains in Committee at such time these items are received and reviewed at a later date. 

Meeting adjourned at 2:50 pm.

Respectfully submitted,

Tracey Elmore, Chair

Scott Noonan, Member

Dave Kissinger, Member (Excused)

o   Service Natural Resources Division

o   Service Cemetery

o   Storm Sewer

o   Refuse Collection

o   Service Water Division

Joe Camp presented the Service Department’s 2019 Operational Budget request. The following operations are funded out of the City’s General Fund:

Service Administration                                                                                 2019 budget        $   223,420

Service Construction Division                                                                      2019 budget        $   722,235

Service Operation Division                                                                           2019 budget        $   797,960

Service Recreation Operations                                                                    2019 budget        $   169,150

Service Natural Resource Division                                                              2019 budget               $1,148,050

Service Cemetery Operations                                                                      2019 budget        $     53,670

Service Department Storm Sewer Operations                                          2019 budget        $   344,402

Service Refuse Operations                                                                           2019 budget        $   810,100

               Service Department’s 2019 Operational Budget                                                   $4,712,962

 

2018 Service Department’s budget                                                                                          $4,205,445

2018 Service Department actual expense                                                                               $4,137,981

The Service Department operated 1.6% under budget or                                                     $    67,464

under budget.

 

The 2019 Service Department operational budget request is $507,517 more than the 2018 budget or a 10.77 % increase. The main reason for this increase in the 2019 Operational Budget are as follows:  Increase in salary’s from the new 3-year collective bargaining agreement, OPERS City Share, Health Care Insurance increase, tuition reimbursement, overtime for plowing / Salt, traffic control sign / aluminum increases, fuel, pool safety equipment, chemicals and miscellaneous cost in  the Natural Resource Division.

 

2019 Service Department’s Capital Budget:                Projects                                              $3,555,200

                                                                                          Service Vehicles / Heavy Eq.            $   919,000

                                                                                          Service Equipment                            $233,500                           

                                                                                          Total Capital                                      $4,707,700

This is a $120,625 reduction from 2018 capital budget.

                                                                                                                                                                    

 

 

The following operation and capitals funds come out of the separate Water Fund.

 

Service Water Division Operational                                                            2019 budget                $3,492,870

Service Water Division Capital                                                                    2019 budget        $   224,600*

Service Water Division’s 2019 Operational and Capital Budget                                         $3,717,470

 

*Doesn’t include Lamonde, Argyle, Loch Haven area water line replacement which a $950,000 bond issue is needed.

 

2018 actual Water Division’s Operational expense                                                                $3,602,150

2018 actual Water Division Capital expense                                                                          $   132,858

                                                                                          Total 2018 Actual Expense                          $3,735,008         

The 2019 Service Water Division operational and capital budget request is $17,538 under the 2018 actual expense or a .47 % decrease. Its import to understand that the Toledo water bulk rate cost was budgeted for the Maumee’s purchase of $2,000,000 but actual water expenses was $1,897,271 or 5.14% under the 2018 budget. We’re using the same $2,000,000 budget for 2019 which is a major contributor to the .47% budget decrease in the Water Division. 

 

The beginning 2019 fund balance in the Water Fund is $1,199,918. In 2019 the Lamonde, Argyle, and Loch Haven water main replacement is scheduled at a cost of $950,000. This will put the Water Fund at a near net $0 balance. Bonding will be needed for this project.  Then there is the cost of a future regional water agreement and additional infrastructural improvements. The city is budgeting for this purpose $250,000 every year for the foreseeable future. This is in addition to our regular maintenance program costs.

 

The following operation and capitals funds come out of the separate Sewer Fund.

 

Service Sewer Division’s Operational                                                         2019 budget                $2,242,550

Service Sewer Division’s Capital                                                                  2019 budget        $   394,500

Service Sewer Division’s 2019 Operational and Capital Budget                                         $2,637,050

 

2018 actual Sewer Division’s Operational expense                                                               $2,247,970

2018 actual Sewer Division’s Capital expense                                                                        $   440,316                                                                                          

                                                                                          Total 2018 Actual Expense                          $2,688,286         


The 2019 Service Sewer Division’s operational and capital budget request is $51,236 under the 2018 budget or a 1.91 % decrease. Its import to understand that the Lucas County Sewer rate cost was budgeted for the Maumee’s usage of $950,000 but actual sewer expenses was $803,235 or 15.45% under the 2018 budget. We’re now using $850,000 budget for 2019, which is a contributor to the 1.91% budget decrease in the Sewer Division.

 

The beginning 2019 Fund Balance in the Sewer Fund is $554,112 which is very low and will be a projected negative balance if scheduled capital projects occur in 2020.  

 

The Committee unanimously recommended acceptance of the operational & capital budgets for the Maumee Service Department. The committee also reserved the right to call back individuals if needed, as the total City’s operational and capital budgets progress through the process. Motion passed 3-0. The Committee adjourned at 5:50pm until its next scheduled meeting at 3:30pm January 8th 2019.


 

On January 8th, 2019, at 3:30 p.m. the Finance Committee of Maumee City Council met in open session, in the conference room adjacent to Council Chambers, after proper notice given to the public.  Present at the Committee meeting were: Committee Chair Brent Buehrer, Council Committee Members Scott Noonan and Thomas Wagener Jr., Council Clerk Amber Rathburn, Law Director / Acting Safety Director Beth Tischler and Interim Police Chief David Tullis.

The main reason for this increase in the 2019 Operational Budget are as follows:  Increase in salary’s from the new 3-year collective bargaining agreement, OPERS city share, and health care insurance increase. The increase is very modest because of current staffing and the younger age of the force, which are at a lower wage range.

This is a $652,300 reduction from 2018 capital budget. The main reason for this is the finishing of the outside shooting range, the purchase of new radios for the department, and the purchase of new rifles.

Council also benefited from the Squire, Patton and Boggs legal bill, which was not in 2018 approved council budget and was paid in 2019. This helped by masking the $90,200 expense in a different fiscal year. Note: public donations which are in the council budget were discussed at a different meeting.
