January 7, 2019 City Council Meeting Agenda

Here is the agenda for tonight’s meeting.

In the work session, we will be discussing

  • Further discussing changes in how criminal nuisance complaint fines and appeals are handled. Mostly we are discussing whether a new process such as a new board should be implemented that would review the appeals from criminal nuisance complaints. Currently this is handled by Building Standards & Appeals board and it is not certain if that is the right place for it. Some council people also expressed an interest in better defining criminal nuisance in the past meeting, but I am not sure if that will be discussed as that was not the original intent of this discussion. (ord 9523-17)
  • Further discussing if a permit should be required before you place a donation box on your property. (ord 9087-13)
  • Further discussing changing the ordinance regarding when trash can need to come in. The council is looking at changing leaving out your trash cans from a court citation to a fine citation. Basically, right now if you leave your trash cans out, you can get a citation that would require a court appearance. This causes strain on the court system and some council members felt that the delay in the fine (which in most cases is waived in court) may not be making an impact. The council is looking at whether a immediate fine system (like parking tickets) would be better. As some of our neighbors have moved to this system, we thought it would be a good time to look at it.

In the Regular session, we will be voting on:

  • A motion to appoint John Montello for the Ohio Auditor of State’s Office Public Record Training
