Re: Chelsea Record Prior Year’s Bills

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Council:

The City has received notice from the Chelsea Record that three invoices from prior
fiscal years for advertising costs were not paid. The Chelsea Record recently notified the
departments of unpaid invoices.

The Parking Department is requesting authority to pay invoice #293 dated February 21,
2007 for $30.00; the City Clerk is requesting to pay invoice number #165 dated May 17,
2006 for $60.00; and the City Council has an outstanding invoice, #110 dated May 9,
2007 in the amount of $60.00. Each of these amounts will be paid from existing
department accounts; thus none of these payments will require a supplemental
appropriation.

Please be aware that the unpaid invoices are not a result of the City’s accounting system,
but instead stem from delays in the vendor issuing the invoices. City policy continues to
be to pay outstanding invoices for goods and services received, no matter when the City
is billed, and, of course, subject to Council approval.

Your affirmative action on this request would be appreciated.

Very truly yours,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Re: Acceptance of Gifts and Donations

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen of the Council:

The Chelsea Police Department has received an unsolicited $500.00 cash donation from
the Star of Bethlehem Lodge AF & AM of Everett and, pursuant to Massachusetts
General Laws and the City of Chelsea’s Ordinances, the City council must formally
accept this gift.

A Trustee of the Star of Bethlehem Lodge AF & AM of Everett personally brought the
gift to the Chelsea Police Department to be used for the Department’s G.R.E.A.T.
Program (Gang Resistance Education and Training Program). As you know, the
G.R.E.A.T. Program is a prevention programmed offered in the schools and is intended
as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.
G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid engaging
in delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems.

I would appreciate it if the Council would take action and approve the acceptance of this
gift. Your action in the affirmative would also serve as a thank you to Star of Bethlehem
Lodge AF & AM for its generosity and support of the City’s efforts to work with local
youth.

Very truly yours,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Order attached:
ORDERED, that the Chelsea City Council pursuant to Section 3-5 of the City of
Chelsea Ordinances, and pursuant to Chapter 44 & 53A of the Massachusetts General
Laws, the City Council hereby accepts a gift from the Star of Bethlehem Lodge AF &
AM of Chelsea to the Chelsea Police Department for use in the G.R.E.A.T. Program.

RE: Transfer from Salary Reserve to Assessor Department

Dear Honorable City Council:

The Director of Assessing is a member of the United Steel Workers Local 9427. the
Director submitted a request for reclassification in accord with Article XIX of the Union
Agreement. In November, 2007, the reclassification committee granted the request
thereby reclassifying the position from a Grade 11 to a Grade 12.

In order to fulfill the obligation of the reclassification, I am requesting a transfer from the
Salary Reserve Account to cover the increase in salary from Grade 11 to Grade 12 in the
amount of $4,278.00. This transfer will leave a balance of $526,617.00 in the Salary
Reserve Account.

Sincerely,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Re: Supplemental Appropriation from Free Cash
    Inspectional Services Department Board Up line item

Dear Honorable City Council:

With the support of the City Council, the City has taken an aggressive approach to
identifying properties that have been abandoned and securing these properties against
vandalism, illegal occupancies and accelerated deterioration as a result of being open to
the weather. The Inspectional Services Department budget includes a line item for City-
ordered board-ups of buildings in the amount of $5,000.
During this year, Inspectional Services reports there have been numerous properties
where the City has been unable to locate a responsible party for the property or locate the
responsible party in a timely manner in part due to owners who have walked away from
their properties prior to the conclusion of foreclosure proceedings. The foreclosure crisis
and the resulting impact on the ISD board-up account were not anticipated during last
year’s budget formation. Currently, the Board-up line item of $5,000 has been expended.
Therefore, this account is in need of additional funding in order to protect public safety.

Where a responsible party is identified, ISD orders the responsible party to board up the
building. Where no responsible party can be identified, the city conducts the board-up
and records a lien on the property for collection at a future date. City liens are superior to
mortgage debt and most other debts on the property. Should the amount of debt collected
exceed that which is anticipated, the revenue is counted towards Free cash for the year in
which the revenue is received.

I am requesting a supplemental appropriation from Free cash of $5,000.00. After the
prior supplemental appropriation requests are made, the balance will be $4,477,297.00.
This $5,000 appropriation will leave a balance of $4,472,297.00.

I respectfully request that the Council take appropriate action on this matter.

Sincerely,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Re: Supplemental Appropriation for increased Veterans Benefits and Veterans Medical
costs

Dear Honorable City Council:

The Veterans Department has experienced a steady increase in the number of veterans
and modifications in the veteran’s benefits package and medical coverage that have
contributed to an increase in the cost of serving our veteran community. The average
caseload during FY’08 has been between 85-90 clients, with a few months exceeding
100 clients. This is one of many side issues relating to the military campaigns undertaken
by the Bush Administration that are left to municipalities to address without full funding.
The combination of the increased caseload and the rising cost of medical services and
benefits have caused the original appropriation of $189,367 for Veterans Benefits and
$75,966 for Medical Services to be insufficient. To fully fund our legally required
commitment to local veterans in need, I am requesting a supplemental appropriation from
Free Cash of $40,860.00 in Veterans Benefits and $4,709.00 in Medical Services. After
the prior supplemental appropriation requests are made the balance will be
$4,472,297.00. This $45,568.00 appropriation will leave a balance of $4,426,728.00.

Fortunately, we receive as much as seventy-five percent of these costs in the form of a
reimbursement from the State the following year. The reimbursement is a general
revenue that is either used to find general revenue expenses in that year or contributes to
Free Cash for the year in which it is received.

I have drafted a proposed order which make the appropriation. I respectfully request tht
the Council take appropriate action on this matter.

Very truly yours,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Re: Supplemental Appropriation for increased energy costs

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Council:

The Fiscal Year 2008 Budget, as proposed over a year ago, did not contemplate the
extraordinary rise in energy costs. More specifically, the increased energy costs are
affecting heating oil, natural gas, electricity, automotive gasoline fuel and truck diesel
fuel. Consequently, the budgets of the Police and Fire Departments are under-funded. I
am proposing a supplemental appropriation from Free Cash to cover these unanticipated
budgetary shortfalls in the following amounts:

       $14,500 to be appropriated from Free Cash to Account 0121052-521200 Police
       Department Lighting.
       $12,835 to be appropriated from Free cash to Account 0121052-545100 Police
       Department Gasoline.
       $6,956 to be appropriated from Free Cash to Account 0122052-521100 Fire
       Department Heating.
       $4,337 to be appropriated from Free Cash to Account 0122052-521200 Fire
       Department Lighting.
       $6,037 to be appropriated from Free Cash to Account 0122052-545100 Fire
       Department Gasoline.

In total, these various energy-related matters total $44,665.00. I am requesting a
supplemental appropriation from Free Cash for $44,665.00. After the prior supplemental
appropriation requests are made, the balance will be $4,426,728.00. This $44,665.00
appropriation will leave a balance of $4,382,063.00.

I have drafted a proposed order which makes the appropriation. I respectfully request
that the Council take appropriate action on this matter.

Traffic Commission
City Hall
Chelsea, MA 02150

Dear Traffic Commission:

Parking continues to be an issue that dominates discussion in and outside of City Hall.
During my regular contacts with members of the City Council, it has come to my
attention that the Council desires to revisit nighttime enforcement and overall residential
parking throughout the community. You may have received or will soon receive a letter
from Council regarding this matter.

Please know that I endorse the Council’s efforts to engage the Traffic Commission in a
discussion about parking. I appreciate the willingness of several Councilors to meet with
you as a way to encourage a meaningful and shared approach to dealing further with the
variety of issues that exist. I too, am ready to offer my observations and opinions.

I would respectfully ask you to prioritize this matter and likewise engage the Council in
discussion. In advance, thank you for your willingness to do so, and your continued
actions on behalf of the City and local residents.

Very truly yours,
Jay Ash
City Manager

Dear Honorable Council:

I am pleased to provide you with the Administration’s $118.2 million budget

As those hearings draw near, please know that I will be providing you with additional
documentation for your deliberation, and supporting information regarding individual

anticipated that adequate funding, including approximately $540,000 in Free Cash, will
exist in insure the budget’s balance.

In advance of those hearings, please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss
any issues pertaining to the budget. As always, thank you for your contribution to the
process of drafting, adopting and, then, implementing our annual spending plan.

Communications and petitions to the Council:

A copy of a communication was received from Councillor Troisi regarding the “Chelsea
City Council Priorities, Policies and Visions.” A motion from Councillor Robinson to
accept and file was adopted under suspension.

May 5, 2008

Dear Fellow Councilors and City Manager Ash:

For more than a dozen years, the Chelsea City Council has encouraged the City
Administration to “plan the work and work the plan.” In planning the work, the City
Council has fostered an environment where contemplation has replaced fruitlessness,
dialogue has replaced contempt and consensus has replaced division. The results gained
by working the plan speak for themselves: increase bond ratings, municipal management
awards, national recognition, community development, heightened resident engagement
and transparency in local government.

During an era when professionalism has replaced politics throughout the City’s elected
and appointment government, the City Council has desired to advance the cause of its
constituency through an even more methodical and comprehensive consideration of the
issues facing City government. Thus, the City Council has embraced the first of its kind
visioning process. The “Chelsea City Council Priorities, Policies and Visions” is the
product of the work of the City Council, with the able assistance of the City
Administration.

The City Charter vests day to day operations of City government in the hands of the City
Administration. The City Council supports the Charter directive, and takes serious its
responsibility to be the overseers of the Administration as the latter carries out its daily
charge. Additionally, though, the City Council serves as a policy making panel, able to
provide insight into the needs of the community, draw upon its collective experience in
the operations of government in order to make recommendations as to how to best
address those needs and, ultimately, keep the progress promoted by City government
moving forward.

The Council and Administration have supported the role of each other and have mutually
sought to present a single, pro-Chelsea agenda, which is a “results-driven” concept that
such cooperation can and will produce. In support of and to advance the mutual desire
to present a single agenda that can advance the cause of the City and those that reside or
are otherwise stakeholders in the community, the Council has committed to the Priorities,
Policies and Visions process. To aid the Council in accomplishing this, the Council
asked City Manager Jay Ash to facilitate the development of the work product.

The following represents the planning and the product, to date, of the planning process.
This list contains eleven vital issues that we, as a council, believe deserve top priority and
our utmost attention.

                        1. Cleaner Chelsea
                        2. Drug Sales
                        3. Air Quality
                        4. Development of Waterfront Plan
                        5. Enhance Roadway Improvements through
                        6. Trucking Enforcement Strategy
                        7. Prostitution
                        8. More Zero Tolerance
                        9. Gun Strategy
                       10. Job Development
                       11. Youth Activity Expansion
As the process is the first of its kind, it can be expected that the planning aspect of the
process may change as necessitated or desired. Likewise, the product may change
through the process, as opportunities arise or hurdles are encountered. For example, the
Priorities, Policies and Visions process was originally envisioned to be an annual
undertaking. It is clear, though, that thoughtful visioning, meaningful program
development, insightful monitoring, responsible program adjustment and desired results
take longer than a few months to accomplish. Thus, the Priorities, Policies and Visions
process should be considered a “term” undertaking, stretching across the two years of a
single Council term.

The Council and Administration remain committed to the spirit of the planning process,
and together wish to productively raise and address the goals that are the product of the
process. The more goals raised, the greater the likelihood that some goals will not be
met. Thus, the Council has narrowed goals from more than 40, to 20, down to the present
11. While it may not be practical to even expect that all 11 can be successfully
implemented within a two-year time frame, the focus on the 11 will surely provide the
Administration with the Council’s insight, and provide the Council with the opportunity
to gauge the effectiveness of the Administration in carrying out the former’s policy
pronouncements.

The number 11 should not suggest that each of the 11 Councilors each got to contribute
one issue, or, for that matter, was only responsible for just one idea. In fact, the process
has allowed for brainstorming, dialogue and consensus, so the list of 11 should be
reflective of the Council’s opinions as a whole. Of course, minority consent is also an
important part of public policy dialogue, so, to the extent that any Councillor differs with
the priority rankings or inclusion or exclusion of items to be prioritized, that right exists
and should be respected. Nor should this list be considered the only items in which the
Council has interest. These are priorities, though, and, as such, the Council may wish to
take actions necessary to effect progress on the items or encourage the Administration to
do the same.

I would personally like to thank each of my colleagues for fully and seriously
participating in this exercise, to thank City Manager Ash for his role as facilitator of the
process and his staff (especially Josh Monahan) for providing the support necessary for
us to reach our desired objective. Collectively, we hope to achieve much success on this
agenda.

Very truly yours,
Councillor Stanley Troisi, President
Chelsea City Council
