This is a serious disserve to the county. (cc: LCT) _____________________ h. PUBLIC COMMENT (Please limit your comments to three minutes) Dan Gouch, Black River Watershed Coordinator, Lorain County Community Development Department commented on #14 under board correspondence, OHEPA Citizen advisory – public invited to comment on Lorain Harbor Dredging Project. This hearing will be held on May 7 at 6:30 p.m., Lorain Public Library, 351 Sixth Street regarding the maintenance dredging of the Lorain Harbor federal navigation channel and it potential impact Lake Erie water quality. He said the Army Corps of Engineers has requested that OEPA allow for open lake disposal of dredge material from the lower 2.25 miles of the Black River. This is a significant request. Bottom sediments from the Black River shipping channel have been historically heavily polluted. Thee polluted sediments were the source of carcinogens leading to extreme rates of deformities, external lesions, or tumors (DELTS); one of the more significant use impairments in our area and found in numerous fish species within the Black River. Major remedial dredging in the early 1990’s combined with strict enforcement of industrial discharges into the river, has led to a vast reduction of pollutants system-wide. For this reason, the Army Corps feels the levels of contamination are low enough that open lake disposal is preferred. This has not occurred since the early 1990’s and represents a true success story in the restoration of the Black River one that can and should be celebrated should OEPA grant the request. It should be noted that sediments upstream of River mile 2.25 (approximately the turning basin) are not yet considered suitable and will be disposed of at the East breakwall disposal facility. The proposed open lake disposal has not yet been approved by EOPA. Public comment cont. May 7, 2009 Mr. Gouch said the first steel mill located in Lorain was “Johnston Steel” in 1894, first blast furnace in 1895, first sanitary sewer was in 1892 that directly discharged into the river, which was the biggest sewer in the county. In 1979, the steel mills faced violations with air quality, which were worse than the water quality. In 1980-1982 OHEPA conducted research on population in black river and found 60% had delts (deformities, external lesions, or tumors). There were 3 out of 5 fish and the water was unsafe in the river. In 1983 could not eat, in 1984 USEPA had a concern with the river. In 1989-1990 did dredging, which was 18 years ago. We are finally getting to a point that this is not containment, and can open lake dispense. IN 2004, the change advisory of tumors, we are in recovery down to less than 1% of fish population. This is almost from dredging and loss of industry along the river, which caused this. Some good, some bad, jobs lost but if this goes through, the county will be delisted for delts on the river. Black River is the only area of concern in the United States that have already concluded a move on the delts. Good move but semi-cautionary because there are still problems, but as far as this, it should be more celebrated than just a journal item. Commissioner Kokoski said last summer she went on a boat through the Black River and who don’t even know you are in Lorain because it is so beautiful. Bill Hemmer, Cooley Road, Eaton Township said the subject of LORCO keeps coming up with more issues. They are not getting the total truth from anyone. They were told if Assistant County Prosecutor Innes had 30 days to work on this he would get them out of LORCO. Then it came back that they could not get out of LORCO. They are asking the Commissioners to allow Assistant County Prosecutor Innes 30 days to focus on this to get them out of it; other communities have been able to get out. This is an issue about annexation, not so much about the sewer. LORCO says the EPA is mandating because the Black River needs to be cleaned up, but he just heard a report that it was fabulous. They want to know the truth, the truth about how much it is going to cost them, and they keep coming up with astronomical figures. They are asking if someone can do something. He wrote to the Governor and his reply was that the residents needed to talk and get it on the general assembly to change 6119. In the Township, you have to have three trustees, so you have two against, two for, all for or all against. Eaton Township has one vote, 13 townships and 3 villages, how do you get a quorum, how does Eaton Township have a vote. You spoke of the wall, do you know the Veterans that died and why they died, for freedom. In this issue with LORCO, freedom of speech, freedom of vote, freedom of petitioning the government has even been taken from them on this issue. He was sad, he is a Veteran and sad that the community of Eaton that they cannot get any government agencies to do anything for them. A trustee had nominated him to be on the LORCO board and it was shot down faster than words could come out of her mouth. Doug Edwards is to be there representative, but will not give any information, he has no knowledge of how many homes will be tied into the township, LORCO has no knowledge, this has been going on for 12 years, over $2 million and the other trustees of LORCO are sitting quietly because in accordance with ORC 6119 and they raise their heads and try to stop this ugly monster it would cost each one of the townships about $140-180,000 because they have to pay off the $2 million if they stick it to Eaton and Carlisle it goes away under construction loan, this is not fair. As a veterans as a resident, he is asking and begging to please do something for them. Mr. Hemmer said how activities are generated in the county to be prosper. He read on the web that National Street Rod Association goes to Louisville, KY and bring in about $3 million in a 3 day event, why can’t we do this here, boat racing, have a lake, drag racing, have an airport with shows, etc. Commissioner Kokoski asked Assistant County Prosecutor Innes about assistance. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said he has had several discussions and received documents from resident regarding LORCO. He stated with 6119 regional water sewer district is an individual body and no county or township has authority over LORCO, they are independent and the Board cannot interfere. The Board has raised questions, not sure if litigation, had meetings with NOACA, EPA and Government office and the Board was told to stay out. Commissioner Blair said the Board had negotiated a seat as well as the Health District but LORCO kicked them off. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said questions were raised but the Board has no authority to supersede. Shirley R. Johnson, Oberlin said even though LORCO is an independent body they still have to confirm to the public meetings and public records law and should be assured he could get this information. Mary Beth Derikito, Huntington Township said she serves as an alternate member on LORCO and stated that two people have sued LORCO (Mrs Hicks & Mr. Milan) and this point in time, the legal advisor has told them not to get them information because they do not know what will be involved in the lawsuit, but they can contact Fred Alspach or Dennis O’Toole, they were not disobeying the law they were simply following legal advice. She also stated that $5 million was received from the stimulus money and $13 million on a no interest loan and this is necessary for health and safety of this area and unfortunate that people are following their own political agendas and not the good of the county. David Ashenhurst, Oberlin said in response to Mr. Innes remarks, he did not hear him entirely asking the county to do something but to give the county prosecutors office some running room, what they might be able to do as, he understands that there are entities in the county that use the county prosecutors office as an advisory not just the commissioners. It sounds to him like he is asking for some help in terms of dealing with perhaps, not sure how townships are representative legally, know how the city is but like public library calls in Mr. Innes and don’t know how other political subdivisions or political entities within the county look to the prosecutors’ office to back up. It was not asking the Commissioners to do something it was asking for help with the township in legal support. He is on the Central Lorain County ambulance board but the lawyer also presents other entities and are there conflicts. Donna Hicks, Eaton Township said she is the one that filed a lawsuit, which has been dropped due to the fact that the other one that filed with her got a 3 week suspension and may when he goes back to work on the 20th, may or may not have his job because of the lawsuit. As far as people in Eaton Township asking for public records from LORCO this was before the lawsuit, have asked for a list of addresses who is getting sewers and received a list that was dated 2003. They have been at this project since 1997 and have not put a pipe in the ground or anything else, but in debt almost $3 million. When they removed the Commissioners representative from their board in her estimation, they violated a court order. Judge Lynette said there would be a board member from the Commissioners and LORCO arbitral removed this person. This was a voice for the residents; they do not have this voice. As Bill Hemmer stated before the townships representative on LORCO does not come back and share anything, with the residents let alone the other two trustees. She has been done at Assistant Prosecutor Innes office and anyone that has authority that could try to help them, has not, there are 1300 homes in Carlisle/Eaton Township and they are basing this sewer district on 3700 new homes. This will not happen with this economy. Yes, they did receive stimulus money and no interest loan, but has not changed the fact, when they started this project they based it on 3700 new homes. She talked with Virginia MacDonald who is in Nimishillen Township, near Canton, and project under 6119 failed in Phase 2, leaving them with a debt of $8 million and 700 people. Ms. Hicks said Ms. MacDonald told her to get people out to these meetings and petition the Commissioners and if a petition is presented to the Commissioners with 80% of the homes that will be affected can you help. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said the Board of Commissioners has no authority over LORCO and he represents the township trustees. Most townships supported LORCO some have problems and there has been litigation and conflicts of interest and we are looking at getting another prosecutor office to come in to look at contacted Lucas County and have followed up on everything lead but staying within the authority of the Prosecutors office and Lorain county prosecutors office has 3 proseucotrs to represent 115 entities. In regards to the public records law, Attorney O’Toole who represents LORCO he has discussed this matter to have them honor the requ4st but they need to review because something are confidential and instructed Eaton Township to respond. Ms. Hicks said who do the residents go to under ORC 6119, which is out there in lala land and they can do whatever they want, no one over them, were are the residents rights. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said the state legislators. Ms. Hicks said they have. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said the Board of Commissioners has no authority over the powers of an individual body. Public comment cont. May 7, 2009 Ms. Hicks asked why LORCO was allowed to remove the Commissioners representative. Commissioner Blair said this was prior to Commissioner Kokoski and Commissioner Kalo and said this was a good question, but they also removed the representative from the Board of Health. Commissioner Kokoski said the Engineer as well. Commissioner Blair said the Engineer was the Commissioners representative and really does not recall think it was a difference of opinion. She asked if the township signed on and they changed their mind, why they could not be removed. Assistant County Prosecutor Innes said Wellington went to court to be removed, the courts adjourned in the middle of the hearing and court made some suggestion that it is wise to follow, conclusion was reached and spoke with Lucas County and there is not statutory method how an entity gets out of 6119, no one knows the answers. Ms. Hicks said had a meeting in Wellington and a resident stated she was at this hearing and the Judge ordered to discussion and she made the remark also that if she let them out she was opening the door for everyone No one has challenged them to this limit and their representative being the township and Innes. She would have felt a lot better if the Board’s representative and health would have stayed on. Commissioner Kokoski said the other county that failed in phase 2, who picked up the $ 8 million tap. Ms. Hicks said the benefited users. If it stops now before the project is started they are in debt $2-3 million, not real sure amount but if it started the 13 townships and 3 villages share in this debt, once they put the shovel in the ground they can assess the 1200 residents in Eaton and Carlisle and they have to pick up the debt. This is their big thing. Heard the other night around $23 million, this is a big debt and in this economy, people will not be able to bear this, they will lose their homes. Commissioner Blair said the sanitary sewer in Sheffield Township, Dunton was placed on hold because of the cost. Commissioner Kalo said he has been outspoken about LORCO in putting sewers in without the residents asking for them and the Commissioners only put sewers in if it is an EPA mandate or the residents ask for it. He stated the Federal EPA gave $13 million and $5 million from the state stimulus package for this project along with a loan backed by Avon Lake utilities to put this in. At this point it has to be a resident uprising to LORCO, they are an entity of themselves they have members and bylaws. It is not that the Board is giving up or not helping, they were but LORCO wants to sewer the county, Ms. Hicks said she has no problem either but the cost. Ms. Hicks said she called the Ohio State Auditor and they refer to LORCO as Scamco. Denise, Elyria wants to applaud and commend the dog pound, Warden Jack and his staff because she took in a stray dog and they help to find a home. She said these people are very kind and helpful. Keith Cordesman, General Manager - Allied Waste said in mid April there was a request for pricing sent out for waste haul on Lorain County Pride Day. They submitted pricing and they were over $700 higher over the low bidder. When they asked Mr. Billman about this, he said they were not the low bidder and what he sent out was request for pricing. Commissioner Kalo said request for proposal. Mr. Cordesman said at that point they accepted this answer as ok, fair is fair, but then read an article in the Morning Journal on April 24 about the ability of the county to show preference in county companies over out of county companies in which they exercised in the case of Gregory Trucking. His question, which he has not be able to get an answer, other than a bid is a bid, when it was a request for pricing, why would Allied Waste not be shown this same consideration when the award was given to a Cuyahoga county contractor. Dan Billman, Director, Lorain County Solid Waste Management District said they looked at the 3% and they still did not qualify on that basis; it was a quote not a bid. Metro received from Cuyahoga County and when it is all said and done Allied should have done a better quote. Allied was higher than Metro. Commissioner Kokoski said then it must not have been a very good bid, because 3% would have only been. Commissioner Kalo said $600. He said the Board has been advised by the County Prosecutor not to discuss they are looking at it. Mr. Billman said they told Metro to go ahead and they also told Allied and have not come forward to get a list of all the townships and cities and villages in pride day using the drop off containers because solid waste is only giving each community 2 and if they wanted anymore they could go to anyone they wanted, which is there right and order more containers and they have not come in or requested the sheet. There is a means for them to capture some monies through the township and cities and give them a lower rate than what Metro is doing, the ability is there. Commissioner Kalo said he is not sure the Board can do anything, if they would have had it before hand prior to the awarding of Metro they could have looked at it. But there are different processes; sealed bids, request for proposals or quotes which can be negotiated after the fact to get the best service and price. Mr. Cordesman said this is fine, even if it was a bid situation with regard to the 3% rule he would have just thought that Mr. Billman would have taken into consideration if they would have done the waste hauling goes into the county landfill, which the county would have received fees back, which when netted out comes out to about 1.8% difference and also the other thing that Mr. Billman would have taken into account was with Allied Waste doing the work, these are Lorain county residents doing the work, which is over time, income that will not be allowed to be earned in the county and payroll taxes the county does not collect and would think in the future that all these things are taken into consideration. Commissioner Kalo said an rfp process is that a company can do a selling point and Allied should have included the net gain expenses and should have added this comment. Mr. Cordesman said there was no comment section, this was never an issue and as a matter of fact, two years ago they were also the high bidder and it was awarded to them, he thinks it was Waste Management that was lower than Allied and upon awarding Mr. Billman changed his mind and awarded to allied. Commissioner Kokoski said the bid was close, it should have been awarded to Allied. Gary Haynes, Amherst Township said last week his home was burglarized and called police, sheriff and waited approximately 3-4 days for someone to come out to get fingerprints. He understands the Board has a lot of important things going on but he bets if it was one of their homes, the response time would have been a lot different. There were 12 firearms taken from his home and he is doing everything he can in offering award money, $1,000 reward to get information. He called dispatch on Sunday morning and after talking to a neighbor, he noticed a screen in the back of his trailer in Westwood Mobile Home Park was cut, thinking they would send someone out. He was told that the officer that took the report would have to come out, he was out there at 3:30 am, and he would have to wait until 11 pm to have someone come back out to look, don’t who want to send someone during daylight hours. Response he received was the officer that initially took the report must go ahead and follow up. If it was anyone of the Boards house they would have someone come, why is it not the same for the residents. He found out that there are only two deputies working the county, there has to be something done. If someone is in Wellington Township and got broken into in Amherst Township and deputy is there, do not bother calling 911, hang up it is more than a 20-minute response time. He understands they can delegate to the communities, this is unthinkable but the health safety and welfare of residents should be ranked up there and there are only two deputies on the night shift for the whole county. He never had called the police before, grew up in Kipton, served 10 years in the military and came back but 2 deputies on duty at night, never saw a sergeant, or lieutenant not talking about somebody taking a stereo, they took firearms, this should have warranted a telephone call from a patrolman up to a sergeant on guard, sergeant on duty up to a lieutenant up to a detective. The detective came out and started putting things up and said he had bad news, he cannot work after 5 pm, and he does not get overtime. Mr. Haynes said he finally showed up and offered for them to take everything else that was left and bring the stuff back, because there had to be something to be found and he was courteous, what is this. What is a dead body worth to the board, there is something wrong and a detective has to get his work done between 9-5, hate to inconvenience someone. What would the Board want the response time to be? He has been here 43 years and plans to be here but they have to have police, fire and deputies more so than a seat up there. Captain Resendez said he is familiar with this incident, which was handled by Captain Reiber but this sitaution described is not something that should be a shocking newsflash to the county residents. They have stood up there for several months saying this would happen, not to this degree but when the shift in assignments, shift in personnel, the Sheriff and the other county departments took the budget and worked within and the gentleman is corrected there are shifts will 1 sergeant, 2 deputies, 1 sergeant, 3 deputies and have said for several months there are 5 different contracts at the Sheriff’s office and vacations will be coming up and this will probably be the status quo for this summer, this is just something that was outlined by the Sheriff’s office, Deputies Union and the respond time that different agencies handled things different. The Sheriffs’ office operates under an icap – an incident that is handled by the original officer. This is the guidelines not set in stone, if an officer takes a report at 3:30 in the morning and some new developments come in at 8 am, obviously they should be past along and acted upon. They cannot have a deputy wait 24 hours to come back to follow up and this should have been passed along. New developments happen all the time Public comment cont. May 7, 2009 and the over time issue, the jail as well as the law enforcement is running on a zero overtime, this is the same operating procedure for the drug task force. Crime does not stop and applaud the other departments for doing the steps that they did but they are a 24-hour operation they cannot shut the doors at 4 or 5 and work Monday through Friday, they are a 24 hour service provider. Again, this is not a real big news flash. Commissioner Kokoski said since the budget cuts they have had 2-3 road patrol per shift, but before the cuts how many were there. Captain Resendez said they had 5-6 per shift with two sergeants. But they have always said 5-6 were not enough because there are 495 square miles in this county and out of this, the sheriff’s office is responsible for 390-395 square miles. The gentleman was corrected if you are down south in Huntington, Brighton, Penfield and a call is received and have to come north, Columbia, Brownhelm and he is a township resident it is a haul, a 20 minute drive and said it before, when he was a Lorain police officer and when he was called there was backup within 20-30 seconds he heard sirens but as a township you might not see 15-20 minute response, a different philosophy, not saying one is better than the other but different type of policing. ___________________(discussion was held on the above) JOURNAL ENTRY Commissioner Kokoski moved, seconded by Kalo at 10:50 a.m., to go into an Executive Session to personnel and union contracts.
