emergency plan because the state needs to pass their budget by Tuesday, July 14 or it will be halted, not sure what the ramifications will be. He
did indicate that anyone that had provided the services would be paid but he did not known when. He also stated that when the general fund was
healthy these items would have been covered and then reimbursed, but there is no money.
         Commissioner Kalo said it will be like California sending IOU’s. He indicated that the Governor Strickland said he will not pass another
interim budget the full budget has to be passed by Tuesday, July 14.
         County Administrator Cordes said that Help Me Grow funding has also been lost and it might be only 2-3 weeks before this is shut
down. TANF monies went through education with the universal preschool initiative, which was good, but we lost the 0-3 years based upon the
new requirements because you can not acquire a child unless you had them before 7 months old. Also the GRF monies had to make some of the
TANF monies which will also see cuts.
         Commissioner Kokoski said if the state budget is passed will the money go back to Job & Family. County Administrator Cordes said he
hopes but the providers will have to wait for payment or not provide services. He said he could look at the numbers for future allocations and
they could look at 15-20% cuts across the board. Commissioner Kalo said that is our money for payroll and services and he understand that the
employees at Job & Family are overwhelmed.                           _____________________(discussion was held on the above)

         Commissioner Kokoski said she was concerned with the 200% poverty level and the residents are required to match 25%. Rebecca
Jones, Lorain County Community Development Department said she has been talking with FirstMerit bank to see about a low interest loan and
also the permit fees can be counted towards the match.

Administrator Cordes said assessments are great but someone has to pay the upfront money.
         Commissioner Kokoski asked about CDBG funds. Mrs. Jones said FY08 money has been allocated but if not all the money is spent
could be used for this because you can match federal to federal with this application. She also stated they are looking at the RLF with a waiver.

         Commissioner Kalo thanked Mr. Enty for reviewing the Elyria and Lorain loops. He inquired about the letters to the other communities.
Mr. Enty said he has met with Mayor Taylor, City of Amherst, Mayor Zuber, City of Avon Lake and Mayor Gillock, City of North Ridgeville
would like to discuss this. They are all very responsive but they are also in the same financial crisis but are not concerned about the reduction this
time they should be able to sustain some of the service with some of their operating buses.
         David Ashenhurst, Oberlin City Council said there was a meeting Oberlin City manager, Staff at Kendal and have another meeting July
20 with Oberlin Community Services and Seniors. He stated that Dial a Ride is not a concern and looking at restructuring the airport service.
He would like to know what will happen if the sales tax passes and what are the implications. County Administrator Cordes said the redistricting
of the local government funds 20% allocation went to various entities, which used to be use to support the non mandated services, we no longer
have the $3.5 million. It is time that communities be progressive with collaboration. We need to maintain the current tax we still will face with
significant issues because we have struggled since the loss of local government funds.
         Mr. Ashenhurst said yes Oberlin was prepared to do a special council meeting in August but the only additional cost is less than what
council needs to approve. He said that the city will loose a day of service on the dial a ride and working quickly on the lowest utilization day
according to transit data and working to fill that gap with other coordinating service and they still will need logistic help but make it clear that it
is not LCT doing this but they still will get the calls with another number being directed.
         Discussion continued and the following resolution was adopted:

                                                                  JOURNAL ENTRY

         Joe Filipiak, Chairman of Grafton Historical Society is present along with John Lesher, Village of Grafton Council member. Mr.
Filipiak said the 3 C corridor Amtrak train is a convenient, comfortable and reliable passenger rail service between Ohio’s cities and towns in no
longer a distant fantasy. Ohio Rail Development Commission and ODOT, along with Amtrak are currently working on introducing a start up
passenger rail service in Ohio’s Cleveland-Columbus-Cincinnati. This service up to 79 mph is a first step in implementing the longer term vision
for a network of high speed trains operating at 110 mph on routes serving other Ohio destinations, the Midwest and the Nation. Grafton Village
has adopted Resolution No. 09-005 supporting the 3 C passenger rail. The Village has taken great care to restore the old train tower adjacent to
the railroad tracks and preserve an old caboose which is located on main street leading into the Village. The tower sits on property that the
village has acquired with adequate area for parking and other improvements. The Village has an active local railroad history association and
village residents from all walks of life have insisted on maintaining the flavor of a “railroad town”.
         He stated that there should be a stop in Grafton. When the rail was used before it ended in 1971 many used it for visiting prisoners and
could be used today for the same, plus students from Oberlin College and visits.
         They attended an Ohio Rail Commission meeting in Columbus on Tuesday and there is money coming from the stimulus, but just not
sure when. He said rail cars hold hundreds of people efficiently and there are 14 states have trains as transportation.
         There will be a joint meeting on July 20 at 7:30 p.m., Grafton community center, SR57 and Novak Road said the 3C Corridor rail
project, Chairman of Grafton Historical Society and feel that Grafton has a great opportunity to the residents of the county.
         County Administrator Cordes said the county has been in the process of restoring the Transportation Center for rail, bus, cars, etc. and is
close to a $10 million project and asked why there would be 2 stops so close together. Mr. Filipiak said the 3c would be Cleveland, Columbus,
and Cincinnati so Grafton would make an ideal stop. The train that would go through Amtrak at transportation would come from Toledo,
because it would cost too much money to divertive. County Administrator Cordes and Assistant County Administrator Twining will get with
Mr. Filipiak to discuss further.
                                                                    _____________________(discussion was held on the above)

        Jean Armstrong, 188 Bath Street, Elyria said she is a daycare provider and they received notice from Job & Family Services stating that
with the state budget crisis they will not be get paid at this time. She asked if they are to continue to provide, when will they get paid, this is her
only income and it is devastating. County Administrator Cordes said this state budget is affecting all 88 counties and this problem has been
caused by the state not the county. Commissioner Kalo said he spoke with State Reps Lundy and Morano and they indicated that the state
budget has only been approved with 70% from last year. The Governor is not giving another extension, therefore it has to be passed by Tuesday,
July 14 and he does not know what will happen. County Administrator Cordes said this is federal money but the state is a pass through and the
state budget has not been approved. Commissioner Kalo said the state has the right to allocate money to where is necessary and they need to
pass the budget or it could potential shut down. County Administrator Cordes said this is why he spoke with Mary Lou Golski, Director, Lorain
County Department of Job and Family Services and told her to do a contingency plan
Commissioner Blair said a group of the childcare providers should send an email with everyone’s signature on to the state representatives.

       Kendal Howard, 812 W. Avenue, Elyria asked what they should do. The Board said this is a state issue and hopefully when the budget is
approved you will be reimbursed for services provided.     ______________________(discussion was held on the above)
