Land Use and Zoning Committee Report

 

               A Land Use and Zoning Committee meeting was held on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at 3:30pm, regarding the matter of a proposed zoning change from C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial) to R-1 (Single Family Residential) for 2323 River Rd.

               Present for the meeting were Tim Pauken and John Boellner of the Committee, Nancy Gagnet from The Mirror, Tracey Elmore and David Kissinger from Council, Bruce Wholf and Amber Rathburn from Administration, Lee Steinman and Sandra and Drury Tallant.

               Councilman Pauken acted as Chair of the Committee due to Mr. Kissinger being applicant of said property under review. As such, Mr. Kissinger was required to recuse himself from the Committee during this hearing.

               Mr. Wholf made a point of clarification that Attorney Cole from Sylvania served in place of Attorney Tischler for any proceedings relative to this issue.

               Councilman Pauken read into the record an e-mail received from Sandra Tallant objecting to the change in zoning relative to 2323 River Rd. until either the applicant (Mr. Kissinger) has resolved their mortgage deficiencies or the foreclosure process has been concluded. (See attached). Also read into the record was Article 1107.04(f) of the Maumee Codified Ordinances which reads; “No ordinance, resolution, or permit approved under this section shall become effective unless all real property taxes and/or assessments levied against the real estate which is the subject of the request are not delinquent and the petitioner has filed an affidavit with the Secretary affirming that such taxes and/or assessments are current.”

               At this point, the Tallant’s and Mr. Kissinger were asked if they wished to address the Committee. Mr. Kissinger indicated that the taxes for that property were challenged, and that a resolution was reached in that regard, so the taxes would be brought up to date. When asked about the mortgage being in arrears, Mr. Kissinger indicated that the mortgage payments were current, and that the matter of penalties on such was being worked out between the parties. As to the lapsed insurance, Mr. Kissinger stated that there was between $30,000 and $40,000 in repairs/renovations that needed to be made to the structure, and was uninsurable until such time.

               Mr. Tallant addressed the Committee and indicated that tax payments have not been made since the purchase in February of 2016. He also stated that the lapse of insurance could have been avoided had Mr. Kissinger notified him. Mr. Tallant indicated that they would have paid the insurance to protect their investment. Mr. Tallant also objected to the zoning change as he felt the property would be worth more zoned Commercial.

               After hearing testimony, I suggested that there were three ways we could go with this issue:    1) Refer the zoning change back to Council for approval; 2) Refer the zoning change back to Council for denial, or; 3) Refer the zoning change back to Council for approval with conditions. The Acting Chair then asked for Councilman Boellner’s thoughts. Mr. Boellner asked Mr. Wholf if this issue could be referred back to the Planning Commission, and Mr. Wholf indicated that it could not be sent back.

               At this point, the Acting Chair made the following motion:

               The Land Use and Zoning Committee moves to refer back to Council the zoning request for 2323 River Rd., seeking approval to change the zoning of 2323 River Rd. from C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial) to R-1 (Single Family Residential) with the following condition. Per Article 1107.04(f), all real estate taxes and/or assessments will be paid within 30 days of this approval. Further, the applicant (Mr. Kissinger) will provide a certified affidavit to the City of Maumee affirming that such taxes and/or assessments are current. For purposes of this condition, the deadline for compliance shall be at the end of the business day on August 16, 2017. If this condition is not met, zoning for 2323 River Rd. will remain as C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial).

               Motion passed 2-0. Meeting was adjourned at 3:50 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Timothy Pauken, Acting Chair

John Boellner, Member

 

Mr. PAUKEN moved to allow Mr. Kissinger to abstain due to a conflict of interest.  Roll call:  All members present voting yea, the Chair declared the motion carried.

Mr. PAUKEN moved to accept the report.  Roll call:  Boellner, Buehrer, Elmore, Hazard, Pauken and Wagener (6) voting yea; nays none; Kissinger (1) abstaining; the Chair declared the motion carried by a vote of 6-0.

PUBLIC INFORMATION COMMITTEE MEETING

Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. and

Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 3:30 p.m.

 

               The Public Information Committee met on Thursday, June 20, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. for the purpose of considering a proposal for a Community Video Program from CGI Communications, Inc.  Present at the meeting were:  Tracey Elmore, Committee Chair;  John Boellner and Tim Pauken, Council Members; Beth Tischler, Deb Cartledge from the Administration, and Nancy Gagnet from The Mirror.

               The meeting commenced at 3:35 pm when we began a phone conference with Amy Curran from CGI Communications, Inc.  She informed us that CGI was a national company that produces videos for more than 3000 communities across the country for the purpose of showcasing the businesses and opportunities available in that particular city on the local website.   They will produce a Welcome video and three more informational videos highlighting points of interest, wellness, arts, food, entertainment, non-profits, etc.  We were shown three sample videos that were very professionally produced and visually appealing.  The City is given authority for final approval of scripts, stories, video edits, etc.

               The cost of this service is underwritten by the various community businesses that contract with CGI to produce or display a video and link to their own business website at varying price levels (approximated at $1,200-$5,000 per year).  CGI will solicit those businesses and organizations locally via mail that are deemed appropriate both by their standards and those of the city to be featured on the city website.  There will be no minimum number required to move forward with our contract and they will work directly with them for production, content, payment, etc.  Non-profits will also be able to be featured with a video and link to their website, free of charge.

               Due to time constraints, John Boellner made a motion to reconvene at a later time to further discuss this issue.  Meeting was adjourned at 3:58 pm.

               The Committee reconvened on Thursday, July 13th at 3:32 pm with the following in attendance:  Tracey Elmore, Committee Chair, John Boellner and Tim Pauken, Council Members, Beth Tischler, Amber Rathburn and John Jezak from the Administration.  After further discussion, it was decided that the Committee would like to explore options to locally produce a video and to keep the matter in Committee for now.

               Motion by John Boellner to explore local production options and send out RFP’s for bids, as long as it’s revenue neutral.  Motion was passed unanimously.

Respectfully submitted,

Tracey Elmore, Chair

John Boellner, Member

Tim Pauken, Member

 

 

Mrs. ELMORE moved to accept the report.  Roll call:  All members present voting yea, the Chair declared the motion carried.

 

Mr. Pauken read the following report from the Streets Committee:

 

Streets Committee Report

               A Streets Committee meeting for the matter of paving the Askin St. extension south of River Road was held on July 13, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Those in attendance were Tim Pauken, John Boellner and David Kissinger of the Committee, Howard Brebberman, Joe Camp and Amber Rathburn from Administration, Tracey Elmore from Council, and residents Mike Heabler and Rosemary Dressel, from the affected extension.

               The Chair opened the meeting by reviewing the report from the October 27, 2016 meeting dealing with this issue, where Mr. Brebberman was asked to obtain proposals to pave the extension minus curb and gutter. The following proposals were received;

1.)              Allied Paving = $17,855.00

2.)              Jennite Paving and Sealing = $23,900.00

3.)              Buck Brothers = $39,997.00 with an optional bid with less and different material
                              equaling $29,997.00

               With Allied Paving being the lowest and best, the funding methodology would work out as an 83% assessment to the residents, and the City picking up the remaining 17% of the cost. For the residents, of which there are 6, the assessment would be $2,469.94 per household. The City is then responsible for the remaining $3,035.36.

               The topic of assessments being issued through Lucas County Real Estate Taxes rather than payment up front was discussed in length. Amber Rathburn indicated that the City could set that up for a period of time, for which there would be an interest charge from the City at roughly 3%, and an Administrative fee of 1% from the County. With one of the residents present indicating that an assessment through Real Estate Taxes would best serve their interests, a five-year assessment was agreed upon. Joe Camp stated that the City normally doesn’t do assessments through the County for an unimproved street/alley, so to do so would require Council to vote for the assessment.

               John Boellner made the following 2 motions;

1.)              To enter into an agreement with Allied Paving to pave the Askin St. extension. Motion
                               passed by a vote of 3-0.

2.)              To approve an assessment for paving the Askin St. extension via Lucas County Real
                              Estate taxes, for a period of 5 years for the impacted residents. Motion passed 3-0.

With no other business, this meeting was adjourned at 4:40 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

The Finance Director reported that they finalized the refinancing of the Fallen Timbers bond issue with an interest rate of 2.34% over an eleven year period with an overall savings of approximately $254,000 for the Fallen Timbers TIF Fund.

 

The Service Director stated that he attended a technical water committee users group meeting last week to get prepared for this year’s algal bloom.  He added that he received a document put together by the City of Toledo, which is more of a refresher for the dashboard and the language that is used, and stated that he will pass that along to Council members.

The Mayor stated that the State of Ohio completed their audit of our finances.  He stated that the Audit Committee, chaired by Mr. Hazard, met and that the State of Ohio recognized the City of Maumee, Finance Department, for their professionalism and how well they handle the operations of the City.  The auditors praised the staff for their cooperation during the audit.  Most importantly, it was a perfect audit with no recommendations for change.  He congratulated the staff for a job very well done.

 

The Mayor clarified for Council members that the intersection at the Anthony Wayne Trail was installed by the developers and not the City of Maumee.  He added that the light for a left hand turn only functions if it is activated by a car wanting to make a left turn.  He stated that there is a lot of misunderstanding about that intersection.

 

The Mayor stated the City continues to work on economic development and that he will be in contact with Council members within the next 2-3 weeks about some very significant economic development plans moving forward.

 

The Mayor congratulated Maumee Little League on hosting the State Tournaments, which brings a lot of people into the community.  He encouraged everyone to attend a game.
