               1.            All employees should arrive to work on time, unless other City duties require them to   be someplace else at that time.

Mr. Buehrer read the following report from the Finance & Economic Development Committee meeting:

 

MAUMEE CITY COUNCIL

FINANCE & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE

October 31, 2018

 

               On October 31, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. the Finance Committee of the Maumee City Council held a meeting in open session in Council Chamber’s Conference Room after proper notice given to the public.  Present at the Committee meeting were: Brent Buehrer, Chair of the Finance & Economic Committee; Council Committee Members Scott Noonan and Thomas Wagener Jr., Council Member Dave Kissinger, Finance Director Debra Cartledge, and Clerk Amber Rathburn. Safety Director / Administrator John Jezak joined the meeting at 3:09 p.m. Discussed at the meeting were as follows:

                            Ohio Checkbook  

               The Committee heard from Debra Cartledge on her concerns in implementing Ohio Checkbook. They were as follows:

               o             The City issues roughly 500 checks a month or 6,000 a year but because not all checks are assigned to the same City fund code, there would roughly be 13,000 entries.  For example, a monthly Columbia gas bill would generate one check but it might be broken down into 3 or 4 City fund codes.

               o             The City would need to redact sensitive information such as tax refund checks or police officers’ reimbursement checks.  Note: it’s important that police officers’ addresses or the City they reside in, isn’t given out. 

               o             Two spreadsheets would have to be kept.  One that has all checks and City coded funds and one that has the redacted information that is uploaded onto Checkbook Ohio. 

               o             Mrs. Cartledge was concerned if sensitive information did get on Checkbook Ohio that repercussions for allowing sensitive information out would fall back onto the Finance Department. She didn’t think that was fair.

               o             This adds just another responsibility on the Finance Department and her staff.

               o             Talking to other cities, after the newness has worn off the usage drops to minimal hits. In her opinion its additional work for minimal usage.

               o             Vagueness of the information may generate additional questions that the Finance Department has to answer, creating additional work for a department that doesn’t have much down time.     

               Ahead of the meeting, Mr. Buehrer requested a coded spreadsheet that would be loaded onto Checkbook Ohio, from Mrs. Cartledge. Mr. Buehrer only printed out the first page since the length of the spreadsheet. (See attachment). Mr. Buehrer made it clear that he wasn’t picking on Mr. Jezak, but if you looked at the spreadsheet you can see that on January 1, 2017 the City Safety / Administrator spent $204 to the Maumee Chamber of Commerce for CNCL-Travel. Because of the vagueness of the information one might think this to be excessive not knowing the whole story. Mr. Buehrer surmised this expense was probably for dues and meals for the entire year, but doubted that a citizen would know that. Again this could generate additional questions and additional work that the Finance Department would have to answer.

Mr. Buehrer also doubted that this would have caught the two unfortunate employee embezzlement schemes that the City got to participate in. They occurred in 2017 with the Maumee Municipal Court and in 1989 with the City Water Department. The group agrees. Mr. Jezak stated that this wasn’t the purpose of Ohio Checkbook and recognized that the information posted is general in nature, but it allows the general public to see expenditures. 

               Mr. Noonan asked questions related to how the imputing to Ohio Checkbook would occur and the additional work that the Finance Department would have to do?  Mr. Wagener shared his experience going onto Checkbook Ohio and the graphics associated with it.

               Mr. Kissinger stated the he is for full discloser and that the citizens have the right to know where their money has been spent. Mr. Buehrer pointed out they will know where the money was spent but they will have difficulty knowing what it was spent on. Mrs. Cartledge pointed out that the citizens already have the ability to make a public information request.  Mr. Kissinger said the state is willing to give a set-up demonstration through his contact with Frank Kohstall.           

               Mr. Buehrer made a motion that Checkbook Ohio remain in the Finance Committee and the City contact the State of Ohio to see a demonstration.  The motion passed 3-0

Committee adjourned at 3:39 pm.  

Respectfully submitted,

Brent Buehrer, Chair

Scott Noonan, Member

Thomas Wagener, Jr., Member

 

Mr. BUEHRER moved to accept the report. 

Mr. Kissinger stated that one additional item that happened since this report is that the Treasurer of State’s office has expressed a willingness to come out to give Council an overview.

Mr. Boellner added that he would be very surprised to see if the Ohiocheckbook.com still exists after the current Treasurer leaves office.

Roll call:  All members present voting yea, the Chair declared the motion carried.

Gabriel Barrow, 716 Inwood Place, stated that he appreciated the proposed change to Council Rules.

 

Brett Stoner, 1023 Kirk Street, thanked Council members for allowing Cub Scout Troup 252 to attend tonight’s Council meeting.

Mrs. Elmore stated that she just wanted to note that the delay in approving the IT Manager position had nothing to do with the job description.

Mr. Pauken stated that he is working with Council members to update the Committee Activity Report.

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

 

Public Information Committee

 

               The Public Information Committee met on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 4 pm in Council Chambers.  Present were Tracey Elmore, chairperson, Brent Buehrer, David Kissinger and Scott Noonan, councilmen, Joe Camp, Howard Brebberman, and Amber Rathburn from the city, Beth Tischler, Law Director and Nancy Gagnet from the Mirror.    Matters to be addressed include:

                            Creation of a City of Maumee Facebook page

                            Creation of a policy for public officials commenting on social media

               It was discussed that several surrounding communities had official city Facebook pages that were helpful in disseminating useful information such as city services, community events, government business and meetings, news of city projects, etc.   Presently such information is provided either in the quarterly city newsletter, in the local newspaper or on the closed Facebook group “Maumee Residents United”.  It was agreed by all present that the city of Maumee would benefit from having such an all-inclusive resource available to residents and visitors alike in addition to those already available.

               The questions of who should administer the page, have access to posting news articles as well as the ability of citizens to comment was raised.  It was also suggested that the present Facebook pages for Fire, EMS and police could possibly be integrated into this city-wide page.  Mrs. Elmore volunteered to contact a few surrounding communities to gather information on how their city pages are run including the pros and cons and report back to this committee at a later date.  It was agreed that inviting the new IT Manager (when hired) as well as the police and fire chiefs would be beneficial at this meeting.

               Motion made by Mrs. Elmore to keep this issue in committee until we can meet with the additional information and personnel within the next 90 days.   Passed 3-0

               A spirited debate on the issue of city officials commenting on social media followed.  Mr. Buehrer was emphatic that he would never support a policy on censoring the freedom of speech of any city employee.  Ms. Tischler was concerned about comments made on social media by several members of council that may rise to the level of a quorum, thus being in violation of the Open Meetings Act.  Not wanting to draft a formal policy regarding commenting on social media, she did make it clear that all city officials should be mindful of the Open Meetings law when discussing city business either on social media or in emails, as it may be interpreted as a violation.

               Motion made by Mr. Buehrer to make a policy for public officials on social media.  Failed 0-3.

               Meeting adjourned at 4:28 pm

Respectfully submitted,

Tracey Elmore, Chair

Brent Buehrer, Member

David Kissinger, Member
