RECOGNITION OF THE PUBLIC
Mr. Elshaw recognized the public input at this time; he reminded the speakers that there is a 3-minute
limit for their comments, all comments are to be directed to the Chair and not include any personalities
or individuals.

Eugene Franko, 1077 E. 348th Street, Eastlake
Mr. Franko: He has a complaint about the garbage service – we pay good money to have our trash
picked up – it is all over the streets. He has lived here since 1970 – the garbage pickup was paid for by
his taxes – now he is paying again. In addition, we have the poorest garbage pickup he has ever seen. If
you follow the trucks you have to dodge garbage. If they are picking up the garbage why can’t they
pickup what has fallen out? We are paying them for a service and they are not taking care of the job.
What is our money for if we are not getting proper service. Someone should follow them – he would get
fined if he threw money out of his car. They are supposed to provide a service but they throw things on
the street – where are the police to give them at ticket. You hired these people to perform a service and
they are supposed to do it right – if you get enough complaints you should give it to someone else.

Mr. Elshaw: Mayor, would you have the Administration look into this matter, and possibly file a
complaint.

Mayor Andrzejewski: He will forward this to Mr. Semik.

Mr. Franko: If you can have one person follow them from Monday through Friday, and take the number
of the truck, and report it he would guarantee that report would be outstanding for what they are doing as
part of their service. You could make all kinds of money out of the fines because they are not doing
their job. If they want to work in our City they can tell their people to do their jobs or they will be fined.

Mr. Elshaw: Mayor, following your review of the matter, would you please respond to Mr. Franko?



                                                      6
Ted Beres, 36706 Lakehurst, Eastlake
Mr. Beres: Council has agreed to forgo their pay raise but he still has an issue with the high salaries in
the Administration. We have a full time Law Director whom he is told makes $90,000 – he read in the
paper that he was in Concord Township representing a developer. He guesses there is not enough work
here at City Hall so he has to moon light. That brings the question – do we really need a full time Law
Director. The Mayor has stated it would cost us $200.00 an hour for outside opinions – how many
outside opinions will be get to equal $90,000. It boggles his mind as to the legal decision regarding Mr.
Razov’s recall and that it takes a certain percentage of voters in the entire City and not just the Ward –
when Mrs. Curtis was recalled it was only her Ward that had to be petitioned. There is also the issue of
how he got the job in the first place. We also have a Mayor who is making over $80,000 – whey
DiLiberto was Mayor for 10 years, the salary went up from $30,000 to $50,000 – that is a good jump –
any worker would like to receive a pay increase like that – then he tacked on $30,000 as Safety Director
which proves you don’t need any expertise to be a Safety Director. Everyone else makes sacrifices for
this levy – you will have a hard time trying to convince people.

Mr. Slocum: For the record, the Law Director’s salary is $75,000 per year.

MAYOR/SAFETY DIRECTOR – Ted Andrzejewski
Mayor Andrzejewski: With the help of Joyce Bates, we met and straightened out the parking for
ballgames at the stadium – all the dates are filled. Parking has been increased from $4.00 - $5.00 to
make a little more revenue for the City. We have also increase the payout to the leagues from $.50 to
$.75 for all their hard work.

We had our first meeting on the levy this morning at the Senior Citizen Center – we had a one half-hour
presentation and opened it up to questions and answers. Overall, it went well – we received a positive
response. Mr. Elshaw and Mr. Slocum were present. The response from the seniors – after they
understood what we were doing, why we needed the money, and how we were going to use the money
was very favorable. We will see what happens in our next meetings.

There were no further questions for Mayor Andrzejewski.

LAW DIRECTOR – Randy Klammer
Mr. Klammer: He has nothing to report. He knows Mr. Beres was sincere in his question. No one
should ever feel uncomfortable to ask him these questions. As Mr. Slocum explained, there is a
misconception that he makes $90,000 a year – this is not true – it is less. While he does not feel he is
entitled to sympathy, it should be known that the Law Department was reduced from four lawyers to two
lawyers – him as a Law Director and a prosecutor. The Law Department was cut about $$30,000 -
$40,000 in salary. Last year, upon discussions with Council President Mr. Hillier, he took a pay cut.
The Ordinances allow him to charge for any of the litigation he performs – which he performs on a
regular basis – including the recall litigation, the sewer levy litigation – the Ordinances allow his office
to bill for that time – he has never submitted a bill for any outside legal services he has performed. This
is atypical of most municipalities – you will find Law Director in many municipalities who, in addition
to their salaries, will charge hundreds of thousands of dollars for time involving litigation. He does not
have a Law Department here at City Hall. The City of Mentor not only has two assistant Law Directors
but one Prosecutor who has an office and two staff members and a law clerk and he would guess the
Law Department probably has the same thing. We do not have that in Eastlake. He pays for his
secretary’s salary, overhead, paperwork – the day to day things – the computer resources, his office
staff, the overhead – all those things certainly benefit his private office but a great amount goes to the
City. He does not want there to be any misconceptions.



                                                    10
This levy is very important to the City of Eastlake – he does not want something as simple as how much
the Law Director makes to obstruct any of that. He understands, and should the City require him to take
additional pay cut he has made it clear that he was available to do that. The City of Eastlake is
important to him – it has been important to his family. Please, he was appointed by Mayor DiLiberto
but he is pleased that Mayor Andrzejewski also appointed him and Council affirmed it. That part of his
connection with Dan DiLiberto has been put to rest. People should always feel free to ask him any
questions he just hopes his salary does not affect the passage of the levy.

This concluded his report and he was open for questions.

Mr. Lajeunesse: He is glad Mr. Klammer brought this up for the residents. He and Mr. Elshaw were
discussing that there were several items that have happened over the last few years that many residents
are not aware of or remember has happened. Such as, cutting the Administration in many different
areas. Up until the time of the levy on May 2, there will be opportunities to review what has been done
over the years to try to control the payroll. He remembers sitting on Council when the question of the
Mayor’s salary was reviewed and our Human Resources person stated that salary was adequate for this
time – it may not be that way in the future, but the question was asked. There has been checks and
balances and there has been time when Mr. Klammer has made sacrifices for this community.

Mr. Klammer, he has been asked by a resident, just as has been done with Mr. Masterson – was the
former Mayor DiLiberto bonded in any way that we may go after some of the funds?

Mr. Klammer: He has spoken on this with Council President Mr. Elshaw and Council Clerk Mrs.
Cendroski – the research showed it was a $10,000 bond.

Mr. Lajeunesse: What does that mean to the residents of this Community?

Mr. Klammer: If Council wanted to pursue that type of claim we could do so – from a legal standpoint,
it would be very technical and complicated to prove damages – the prospect of recovery is limited. He
knows the residents want to see that you have turned over every stone and he thinks he can say Council
has looked in every corner to see if there is anyway you can find recovery.

Mr. Lajeunesse: He is adamant about doing as much as we can. He was on Council when the last levy
was voted down and he remembers some of the issues at that point in time – this was one of the issues.
Now, we have to look anywhere we can. Someone has to be held accountability. Accountability is one
of the issues the residents in the Community has. He would like to do what we can to research this.

Mr. Klammer: There was discussion about trying to increase the Mayor’s bond in case something like
this should happen in the future. The answer to the residents on such questions may be – it is a good idea
but the reality is it is $10,000 and that does not mean we will get it. Mr. Masterson had a $500,000 bond
– it is more significant.

Mr. Elshaw: We can further discuss the feasibility of this.

There were no further questions of Mr. Klammer.

Mr. Slocum: He has nothing to report and is open for questions.

There were no questions of Mr. Slocum.

CITY ENGINEER – Steve Guard
Mr. Guard: They are performing individual site plans for the new condominium complex next door to
City Hall and for the new Fifth Third Bank on Vine Street. They have initiated the design work for the
Roberts Road, Phase 2 reconstruction which is this year’s Issue 2 project – they should be reviewing the
plans with the Administration in two or three weeks.

Mayor Andrzejewski: You may want to inform Council on the work on the Federal funding. We did
not realize all that was involved in obtaining the funding.

Mr. Guard: They have to provide documentation to confirm or verify the $4.2 million grant. They have
provided the records for all the contracts for the stadium, the bi-centennial plaza, the resurfacing and
reconstruction of Vine Street, the bridge, and the parking lot – as well as providing a written report on
the project and the interface with the stadium. They met with the Finance Department and
Administration in relation to the interest rates and charges associated with the project. The final meeting
to finalize the report and submit it to the Administration should be next week – the final report should be
submitted in the next two weeks.

Mayor Andrzejewski: They have also been contacting all the appropriate entities to finalize the funding.

Mr. Elshaw: Mr. Guard, would you please provide a copy of the report to Council.

There were no further questions of Mr. Guard.

BUILDING DEPARTMENT REPRESENTATIVE – Joe Voros
Mr. Voros: As he has only been here for two days he did not have a report. He is currently reviewing
things – there are two houses he is looking at the possibility of condemning. He will have a report at the
next meeting.

There were no questions of Mr. Voros.

FIRE CHIEF – Richard Sabo
Chief Sabo: Council was provided this date with a statistical analysis of the Fire Department runs – this
will enable all to understand what they have been doing. This concluded his report and he was open for
questions.

POLICE CHIEF – John Ruth
Police Chief Ruth was absent and excused.

TAX ADMINISTRATOR – Angela Keneven-Zanella
Mrs. Keneven-Zanella was absent and excused.
