facility on PO Road for a cardiac arrest with CPR in process medic 1 and Engine 1
responded and upon arrival and to their surprise the cardiac arrest subject
Robert who’s here with us was sitting upright and talking Roberts co-workers
stated they witnessed him collapsing to the ground they immediately assess his
vitals and found he was not breathing and he had no pulse
Roberts co-workers quickly formulated a plan and immediately started CPR sending
someone to the closet to get the AED the AED was retrieved and was applied to
Robert and began to analyze the cardiac rhythm it confirmed that a shock was
needed at that time one shock was given shortly after the shock was given Robert
started breathing and a pulse quickly returned
Robert received approximately 3.5 minutes of CPR

moving on now to our official reports mr. mayor thank you very much mr.
president members of council and all assembled mr. president I just want to
thank you for your comments about dr. Gary Hess I’ve had the great joy of
knowing Gary since 1971 and working with him at the University and I’ve always
marveled at Gary’s commitment to the city he’s well recognized throughout the
world of diplomatic history and he could have come up with a hundred and one
reasons why it would hate to be diverted from his research interests and his
teaching and his writing and so forth but he was very committed to this
community and I just always marveled at how much time and effort he put in
especially on the Planning Commission and through other avenues as well
he was just couldn’t you couldn’t ask for a more dedicated person in terms of
serving and the best centers of the city and I’ve had a chance to visit
with Gary and and I understand a little bit his reasons why he won the step
aside at this time from the Planning Commission and but he’s doing just fine
and and I know he’s going to maintain along with rows of keen interests and
what goes on before City Council of this city government and in the community at
large so thank you very much for those comments they’re on and he also I should
know broke the last history of BGSU and did an excellent job and that is
something I keep close at hand to referring to it quite often so this
Wednesday November 6th at 11:30 at the Worcester green starting at the
Worcester green will have the fourth annual not in our town peace march and
this has been put together by the the University and the community group
working with not on our town Emily Donna pace is the community representative
she’s just been doing an outstanding job our own Heather Saylor
as each year she’s devoted a great deal of time and effort not only to this
endeavor but to other things representing not in our town as well and
Heather were grateful for your leadership there but this will be
starting out at 11:30 first at the Worcester green president Rogers will be
speaking there very briefly then we’ll all march to the Union Oval and there’ll
be some brief remarks there and then Wednesday again starting at 11:30 and I
would hope that some of you would be find it possible to join with me on this
very special occasion the fourth annual not in our town peace march so also I
should note that the steering committee for the Worcester green will have a very
important meeting this Wednesday November 6th at 4 p.m. at the Wood
County District Public Library and so we’re working away I hope come next June
we’ll be able to have a mr. mayor he’ll be there mr. mayor at that time I have a
very special anniversary celebration celebrating the

inauguration at that time there and I’m unfortunately we’ve had a resignation
from the Historic Preservation Commission I just received it today from
Rena caldron as she as of reasons and so forth and but she was representing the
east side so I hope any member of Council that can think of a person that
would want to be involved with this very very important effort I know all of you
feel very committed to historic preservation and we’ve got some
wonderful people working away on it with Heather and working with the people in
Columbus we know that 7774 communities in Ohio are certified for local
government certified local government classification or historic preservation
and I would love to have this community be number 75 or by the time we might do
it might be number 76 whatever I think it’s
important but they’re putting a lot of time and effort in on this so mr.
president members of council this concludes my report but if you have any
questions for me I’d be more than happy to try to answer them and thank you so
much for participating in this very special act of recognition this is a
great story and some really committed people and it’s amazing what they can do
and demonstrate leadership in very very special ways so and I can’t I know you
feel the same way I do about Aedes and learning you know the resuscitation and
so forth all those very special stuff we do have an AED box right out here and
the Dave and Jody Anderson have have been so helpful in the community of
raising money for a Edie we found them throughout the downtown area and other
places and in the schools and so forth so we’re grateful for their leadership
and I know they’re going to be reigniting their their campaign here
sometime and not-too-distant future too because we can certainly use more AED
devices and in the community so again thank you thank you have questions are
questions for mayor Edward thank you sir appreciate that planning
director MS Twitter Oh municipal administrator that’s trailer
yeah that’s what happens when you look ahead
after all of that for nothing I’m so sorry
other questions for Laurie thank you now a planning director miss Saylor
questions for Heather thank you parks and recreation director them is oddly I just have one item you want to remind
people that our next community focus group meeting is next Wednesday
I believe November 13th I believe that’s next Wednesday 7 o’clock at the
community center free childcare available and the focus for that focus
group meeting is Ridge Park and Carter Park so that is all I have unless you
have questions questions for Kristen thank you the attorney mr. Marsh other
questions for mr. Marsh thank you utilities director mr. O’Connell two
things next week on November the 12th it’s a Tuesday at five o’clock we’ll
have our utility budget presentation to the Board of Public Utilities and to
City Council so we’re wrapping up our budgets this
week and hopefully have them delivered by Friday that’s that’s the next day
before the meeting that’s all over about 28 right so I’m just just to remind you
that that meeting will occur on Tuesday the 5:00 p.m.
the 12th 11th is the holidays so that’s why something Tuesday and then other
thing was we were we were given the award from American power Association
for a smart energy provider this is the first time that they’ve offered this
designation of for an award in the whole country there were 67 that were selected
and there were only two in Ohio Bowling Green and West row that received the
designation so this this revolved around it revolves around smart energy program
structures energy efficiency and distributed energy
programs that we offer environmental and sustainability initiatives and customer
experience or education that we put that we do we work with Amanda gambie our
sustainability coordinator quite a bit on the application and looking at things
that we do now I’m trying to benchmark ourselves against what other utilities
are doing across the country and we weren’t sure how we’re gonna score but
we did he scored above the minimum I think it’s but maybe a 70 we got in the
lower a lower 80s there is room for improvement we’re not at the top of the
list but we did score high enough in all the categories to receive the
designation so I it’s a big deal to say we know if we benchmark ourselves
against other utilities and we receive that recognition and we’ve had other
other recognitions from Appa in the past such as our p3 award or the reliable
public power provider award and we’ve also gotten the an excellence and
reliability a certificate from our past performance of outages or lack of
allergies I should say so again we’re trying to do the right things and and
there’s programs where we can so that’s why I haven’t I said questions questions
for mr. O’Connell congratulations on that award it is a big thing it
validates all of the great work that’s being done in the utilities Department
every day yeah so please express our consider eight or our best wishes and
congratulations to everybody in your group I would so thank you thank you
public works director mr. Kraft well sorry to rain on the parade a little bit
merry home we have a little bit of work to do downtown yet some valve box
manhole adjustments all those get paved over and you adjust those after pavings
degrade so that our guys can get through that in the winter minor work one corner
of the Chase Bank Corner when they poured that it did rain that day we told
him we’re not happy with how it looks we’re concerned about the the water
cement ratio in the concrete that may happen either yet this year not around
the parade or even in the spring so the weather right now doesn’t seem to be on
our side so we’ll see how that shakes out next
couple weeks leaf collection will start on the November 12th
the day after Venters day we’re gonna get after it through Thanksgiving and
then take another look and see where we’re at and what the how the leaves are
behaving this year last year all the leaves hung on late and then make
announcement how we’ll make our last pass probably working into more like a
mid December this year to hopefully get all the leaves in not be plowing snow
out on East Worcester of course roundabouts are in full operation a
little bit of work to do yet on the utility work on the north side and of
course was a big hole there last week where the old pump station used to be
things I have yet to do is the driveway to that pump station the multi-use path
still needs to be put in and paved and then pave the Maltese path all the way
over to the dumb bird road side way you see right now is just the base course
and then of course some more lighting the decorative lighting needs to come
all the way up to alumni drive though they’re fighting the calendar and a
little bit of weather there to get that done but I’m sure between o doc my other
brothers this has been a great partnership on this project all year and
I’m sure we’ll get it done just a little reminder next Monday with being bettors
day there’s no refuse collection so it’ll be
delayed a day next week that’s my report any questions me yeah yeah you can jog
walk rollerblade ride a bike on it whatever you want and it’ll it’ll
connect you to the Stroh Center corner and take it all the way over overpass to
the DeMars Road intersection yeah Ryan you’ve talked in for several years about
encouraging people to leave the leaves in their yards and not taken to the
street chop them up compost mulch whatever yeah you just have any sense
that you’re seeing a little bit more of that well it’s hard to gauge because
seems like I mean there were times where we’d have to leave where we’re picking
out leaves to come pick up main and loosed her before the trick-or-treaters
we’re a full and leaf collection by that time now we’re not even starting until
sometime in November but it looks like some people are even mulching and then
bringing the mulch pile out to the curb for us to pick up we just
assumed maybe that first go-around just leave that in your yard because it’s
actually good nutrients for your yard it goes to your quality of yard that sort
of thing you’re actually throwing a good product away I think some people are
getting it and we also recognize that there are just so many houses are
saturated with too many leaves I think I think the message getting out I think it
just can take a long time to get people I personally just did mine yesterday and
went from completely covered to green and you got to go over it several times
you just don’t take one pass go slow mine has the catch on the mower where
it’ll go just chop them up and next time I may have to spread them out a little
more and do some more in the backyard sort of thing but I think people are
coming around just gonna take some time to get people to consider doing that for
their yard love them and leave them great thank you Brian reports this
evening do we have any council committee reports I do have a couple items under
the heading of council committee reports first of all I wanted to announce some
dates upcoming dates for a finance committee budget hearings in council
meeting schedules as everybody is well aware the administration is moving into
budget preparation and we wanted to just get these dates on council members
calendar so that everybody can participate in the budget process on
Monday December 2nd at 6 p.m. we will conduct a Finance Committee budget
hearing I’m here in city and council chambers there will be no regular City
Council meeting that evening it’ll be just a Finance Committee meeting but
certainly we hope that all council members will attend on Monday December
16th that is a regular City Council meeting evening will then present the
budget and on Monday December 30th and 5:00 p.m. we will have a special special
City Council meeting to conduct regular business and year-end business was it
third day sorry December 30th at 5:00 p.m. so I will
follow up with an email to everybody on council but there you can get these
dates on your calendars but we did want to
that out this evening secondarily in regards to an agenda item this evening
item number in ordinance number 8 8:08 this should look familiar to council
this is our ordinance related to parking operations and I just wanted to mention
this because last meeting there was some discussion about parking policy changes
and implementation of kiosks and other and other changes in the parking
department and there was some discussion last meeting about the potential need
for a follow-up meeting to once again discuss these items publicly in the time
since our last council meeting there have been several conversations have
taken place with individual council members and administration members in an
effort to answer questions and provide other the information that was being
requested as it related to council actions that were taken in January so
the consensus after those conversations took place is that there is no longer a
need for a follow-up meeting so I wanted to first of all and clarify that that
situation and secondarily in terms of the item on our agenda this evening it
was noted during the course of this discussion that prior to its passage in
January the previous ordinance dealing with parking policy changes had been
tabled indefinitely and in our in light of our recent conversation about
Robert’s Rules of Order z’ and the desire to be quality consistent with
process and Robert’s Rules of Order z’ it was felt that in order to ensure the
validity of this of these new parking regulations that it would be most
prudent to simply reintroduce the legislation this evening so that is why
that item is on our agenda this evening if you’ll note we’re going to expedite
the rules in it afterward we’re going to vote on expediting the rules and adding
an emergency clause to this new ordinance this evening the the the body
of the ordinance has not changed its the same legislation the weakens
and passed unanimously in January so this is simply a procedural matter and I
would certainly entertain any questions or comments at this time about this
process I just want to comment that you did accurately and adequately explain
the discussions were had by those of us who had issues with passage you stated
what occurred and I’m pleased to go on very good Thank You sandy
are there any other counsel committee reports mr. president two items related
to what you had just talked about one is well find it related last meeting there
was a suggestion to look into the possibility of extending the park
downtown parking holiday through the end of March and you were going to meet with
Brian vashaun and the administration would you like to give an update on that
I did yes certainly and as I expressed you in a private conversation earlier
this week I did discuss that matter with both Lori and Bryan and received a
strong recommendation from both of them that from a financial consideration that
we that that would not be an action that would be wise for us to take at this
time considering the account balances in the in the parking the fund that we are
looking at now frankly as a result of the parking holiday that was instituted
in August it just does not felt it would be prudent to extend that parking
holiday at this point in time so it’s not my belief that we’ll be doing to two
items one do you recall the amount that the approximate amount of a hit that we
would take in the parking fund over those three months I can’t answer that
question Bryan is that I hate to put you on the spot but you know I can tell you
that the please correct me if I’m wrong Bryan but the the previous estimate that
we had received from from Bryan in terms of the parking
holiday that was implemented in August that would take us up to when we
normally would Institute the parking holiday in late November early December
was approaching fifty thousand dollars okay so ballpark yeah that ballpark I
think you could do the math on that and extrapolate a number of what the cost
impact might be if we are going to extend it for another period of time is
this something that would be appropriate for either a discussion now on council
which I anticipate would be very brief or reference referring to the Finance
Committee a decision like this related to a potential impact on the budget it
would seem that it would involve more than one member of council I’d be happy
to I guess take a bit of a straw straw poll as we sit here that this time is
there the majority of council members that feel this is an issue that we would
care to pursue well from the standpoint of the Finance Committee I I would say
probably not the administration might have further considerations as they
think about the budget proposals for the following year but but just my personal
view is that we probably would not want to do this at this time yeah mr.
president I don’t support it either I think we’re gonna struggle enough with
making up for the shortfall we created with the goodwill measure that we just
lived through and I certainly do not support an extended holiday thank you
just wanted to make sure I had its day in court I also don’t would not support
it I have faith in in Brian’s decision to not suggest that we do that we did
provide for a holiday early and I do believe we’re we’re gonna have a
financial struggle if we do it again so I am not interested in entering into
a conversation about that any further yeah again my my
I thinking is we would we would discuss it and it goes forward it does it
doesn’t it doesn’t but I think it was important enough to pursue the second
item is more closely related the parking and that has to do with kiosks and I’ve
been trying to figure out if there’s been I whether I personally had some
sort of a disconnect between the administration making plans with respect
to the implementation and the timing of extending the kiosks and I haven’t and I
have I’m still not sure at what point did I miss an email or was there some
meeting or some discussion that that I’m not remembering it would help me
personally if the administration would help jog my memory and not now but but
come up with this is when we decided to to extend the kiosk beyond blot to in
terms of timing you know what point it was the did the administration come up
with this is the timing we have for extending it beyond parking lot to
because I I’d been thinking that you know all this discussion that we’d had
and I went back over the January council meeting as all of us did and I read
through the the recommendation report from the committee I’m trying to figure
out where was it that the decision was made to expand beyond and do it now and
I I can’t find it and so I would really appreciate it
Laurie if at some point you know not a great hurry but at some point you’d say
oh well you know bill on this particular date we sent this
male or we had this meeting or something just to help me solve the mystery as to
where my laps is in all of this is that is that good very very good thank you no
I’m glad that you know Laurie will be able to pursue that but you know as you
and I discussed at length in a private conversation or the end of last week I
think that it’s important that we recognize number one that the direction
the council took in terms of parking and proceeding specifically with kiosks was
clear it was a unanimous vote and the discussion that took place at the the
meeting you referred to in January was conclusive we talked about key Asin and
that was a consistent topic of conversation so which should not have
been a surprise in my view that we were going to be proceeding in that direction
in terms of communication that took place notifying council the specific
dates in terms of in the implementation of that policy the council adopted in
January I think that we need to kind of if our hat to the the task that we give
the administration we set the course when it comes time to implementing those
course there are the professionals and we trust them to do their work there are
many things that happen where we don’t necessarily get emails notifying us of
tasks that take place you know monumental tasks take place and I can
respect the fact that this is you know this discussion about chaos is a bit
different because of the public nature of the discussion but I just think in
general terms it’s a bit unreasonable for us to expect that the administration
is going to provide us daily or weekly email notifications on things that
they’re doing across the multitude of departments in terms of implementing
policies that we have approved so I don’t want to be confrontational with
you about there but I just felt like that was wasted well I it’s not my
intent to be in confrontational but there are a few points I need to make in
response one I went through those minutes and I read
through the legislation and one could view those minutes and with the
perspective of the kiosks being only implemented in lot too
and so there was a and listen to it again with that mindset and it wasn’t
overt in saying that is just a lot too but it wasn’t overt and saying we’re
expanding beyond lot to and at this point so in terms of the supporting
evidence you give I don’t I don’t believe it’s as solid as you may think
and in terms of the administration giving us an incredible amount of
information on every decision they make I definitely agree with you on that but
something that as you mentioned directly impacts the the citizenry as much as
kiosks do and the feedback that at least I’ve received on the kiosk and I think
others as well is it would it would put it in the category of perhaps we should
have our finger on the pulse a bit more and so yeah if if there is no email that
says this is what we decided Council and ears in information then I would chalk
it up to well that’s a judgment call on how much you tell council and how much
you don’t so and that’s fine if it’ll put my line to either way if there’s an
email that said it and and I just somehow got by me amazing how many
emails we get and and if there isn’t one then okay there isn’t one the January
meeting did not definitively say that we were going to expand the kiosks and do
them at this point now I think the the movement the the understanding was the
kiosk would go beyond a lot to at some point the extent to which I would go
beyond lot to I didn’t think that would be as extensive as it appears to be now
and in terms of the timing of it coming up with a kiosk version – you
know the more user-friendly one had i known and again it’s not i’m saying it
could be my my my bad on this but had i known that it would have been well we’ll
have the kiosk in lot to and and just blanket the other lots without getting a
read on how friendly they are I’m again I’m as I usually do I’m saying more than
I need to point is I would appreciate the the information point taken is there
any other discussions mr. president I think as one of the people that
participated in the several months of discussion with the committee involving
downtown folks and including some public public meetings and meetings where
council participated I think of a really important point is that there were a lot
of pieces to the puzzle the kiosks were one piece of the puzzle other things
would not work so well if we if we tried some other means of collecting the money
the the police department had a very specific role in figuring out what
methods would work they looked at a variety of options and I’m just very
satisfied with the work of this of the downtown committee and it just all goes
together and so uh I’m not exactly sure what your concern with here but I think
what we we’ve got before us here is gonna work really well I think it’s the
best possible approach well the part of my concern not concerned I can use is
the downtown parking committee report as a section on kiosk and it’s uh well
written but it it says there was aa quote there was also feedback that
should the city go to kiosks in all Lots shelters or covers should be installed
to protect customers from the elements but what would but strikes me is should
the city go to kiosks in all Lots so that wording from January 11th from the
downtown parking committee report lends evidence that perhaps at that point they
were not sure they were not sure whether the city was going to go to kiosks and
all Lots and it doesn’t mention the implementation plan so all I’m saying is
a little bit of information would be helpful so I can sort out how I got disconnect that’s that’s all I don’t
mean for it to take this long to say that thank you okay would you please
read us or lead us through the reading of legislation legislation for first
reading resolution number 374 8 for first reading resolution transferring
previously appropriated funds mr. president mr. Jeffers I move we suspend
