IX.     ITEMS REMOVED FROM THE CONSENT AGENDA
        M. Bourke requested that item number seven (7) be removed from the Consent

        the Council received the revised and corrected version tonight and asked that it be
        approved.

        Motion to adopt Ordinance No. 09 - 16: An Ordinance Prohibiting Video

        (DEFINITIONS), §156.043 (SIGNS), 156.050 (TEMPORARY USES), 156.087

       MINUTES OF THE REGULAR CITY COUNCIL AND
          COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING
               TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2009


A motion was made to adopt Ordinance No. 09 – 18: An Ordinance Amending
The Code Of Ordinances Of The City Of Oakbrook Terrace, As Amended, Title
XV (Land Usage); Chapter 156 (Zoning Code), Sections 156.004 (Definitions),
156.043 (Signs), 156.050 (Temporary Uses), 156.087 (B-3 General Retail), And
156.102 (Schedule Of Parking Requirements) as amended was made by
Alderman Durham and seconded by Alderman Thomas.

Ragucci asked for discussion. Bojan asked the Council to consider amending the
proposed ordinance with an additional clause. Bojan, recommended that the following
clause be added to the proposed ordinance,

“WHEREAS, following the Planning and Zoning Commission’s public hearing, the
City Council has determined to concur with certain recommendations of the Planning
and Zoning Commission with respect to temporary uses, uses on the first floor of
buildings in the B-3 General Retail Zoning District, parking for medical offices, and
signage on Roosevelt Road, but has determined to disagree with the
recommendations concerning signage on 22nd Street and increase the height of
permitted signs on 22nd Street as well as Roosevelt Road.”

Bojan indicated that the additional clause would reflect the Planning and Zoning
Commission’s recommendation not to increase the sign height on 22nd Street. Bojan
further explained that the clause would clearly indicate that the decision to increase
the sign height on 22nd Street was a Council decision, and not a Planning and Zoning
recommendation. Discussion ensued regarding the additional clause. Council
concurred to amend Ordinance No. 09-18 and add the clause as recommended by
Bojan.

Motion to amend Ordinance No. 09 – 18: An Ordinance Amending The Code Of
Ordinances Of The City Of Oakbrook Terrace, As Amended, Title XV (Land
Usage); Chapter 156 (Zoning Code), Sections 156.004 (Definitions), 156.043

(Schedule Of Parking Requirements) with the language proposed by Alderman
Bojan included herein was made by Alderman Durham and seconded by
Alderman Bojan.

   Ayes:          Bojan, Durham, Sarallo, Sayyed, Thomas, and Vlach
   Nays:          None

   The motion to amend the ordinance as presented passed.

A roll call vote was then taken on the main motion to adopt Ordinance No. 09 –
18: An Ordinance Amending The Code Of Ordinances Of The City Of
Oakbrook Terrace, As Amended, Title XV (Land Usage); Chapter 156 (Zoning

XIII. COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE CONSIDERATIONS

     1. Request For A Change Of Liquor License Classification: Courtyard By Marriott

        The Courtyard By Marriot’s General Manager Luci Krych along with Courtyard
        Attorney, Harlan Howell addressed the Council regarding the request for a
        change of liquor license from a Class “E” to a Class “A”. Krych explained that
        the license upgrade is due to the recent hotel lobby renovations. Krych
        commented that the former breakfast area is being converted into a bistro and bar
        atmosphere which will be open from 5PM – 10PM.

        Bojan asked the representatives to address their policy of not serving alcohol to
        underage people. Krych indicated that Courtyard has a zero tolerance policy for
        selling alcohol to minors. Howell added that Courtyard requires that staff card
        everyone under the age of 30 prior to selling liquor.

        Ragucci expressed that he was pleased to see that so many of the Courtyard
        employees were BASSET (Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and
        Training) trained. Council concurred to place the ordinance altering the license
        classification numbers on the next Consent Agenda. If the ordinance is approved
        by the Council, the Liquor Commissioner will issue a new license.

     2. Planning and Zoning Commission’s Letter Of Recommendation: Request For A
        Special Use In The B-3 General Retail Zoning District (JRC Plaza East And JRC
        Plaza West)

        Dragan addressed the Council and stated that a public hearing was held before
        the Planning and Zoning Commission on October 6, 2009 to consider an
        application for a special use in the B-3 General Retail Zoning District for JRC
        Plaza East and West. Dragan noted that the special use would allow business and
        professional offices, including medical, physical, occupational and speech
        therapy uses on the first floor. Dragan indicated that the Zoning Code allows
        offices on the first floor in the B-3 district only if a special use permit is granted.

        Dragan indicated that the Planning and Zoning Commission recommended
        approval of the special use request subject to certain conditions: to allow office
        uses not to exceed 6,000 square feet in the JRC Plaza East and West, also that
        there shall be no division of currently vacant tenant spaces allowed and that the
        owner shall execute a Restrictive Covenant to be recorded on the property to run
        with the land and bind future owners to the same restrictions.

        Bojan asked that if the retail space is vacated for more than two (2) months, will
        it revert back to retail? Dragan affirmed that the space could revert back to retail


                                    Page 6 of 13
            CITY OF OAKBROOK TERRACE
      MINUTES OF THE REGULAR CITY COUNCIL AND
         COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING
              TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2009

   during a consecutive six (6) month period, unless an extension is granted. Dragan
   noted that once the space reverts back to retail the special use is terminated.

   John Calfa, owner of JRC Plaza East and West, addressed the council and
   indicated that his shopping center is experiencing hardships with three (3) retail
   sites that have been vacant for over a year. Calfa suggested that a professional
   service tenant is better than no tenant, and that the latter is better than a vacancy
   as it brings people into the shopping center.

   Thomas stated that normally he would not approve of this type of zoning change,
   but given the economy he favored the change. Vlach indicated that Calfa’s
   businesses have contributed a tremendous amount of tax dollars to the City, and
   that the Council should show some leeway and approve the special use. Bojan
   stated that she does not favor the special use, because office space should not be
   located in a retail center and zoning district. Bojan requested that this item not be
   placed on the next Consent Agenda, but appear as a separate item on the Agenda.
   Council concurred to vote on this item separately on the next agenda.

3. Status Report: Terrace View Park Culvert Crossing Replacement

   M. Bourke referenced the letter from the Oakbrook Terrace Park District (the
   “Park Distinct”) that was being distributed at the meeting. M. Bourke indicated
   that the Park District is looking for a loan from the City to complete the culvert
   replacement. M. Bourke explained that the loan, if approved by the Council,
   would be repaid over five (5) years and the borrowing rate would be one (1)
   floating percentage point above the Treasury rate.

   M. Bourke noted that a potential conflict of interest could be construed if
   Christopher B. Burke Engineering (CBBEL) was to engineer the project, and
   submit it to the County for permitting. Gosselar recommended that in considering
   the recent discussions between the City and Park District concerning the
   maintenance responsibilities under the lease, CBBEL not perform the work as a
   City sponsored project. M. Bourke added that the City’s Engineer would still
   review the engineering plans for the project in their role as Stormwater
   Administrator.

   M. Bourke asked the Council to consider loaning the money to the Park District.
   Vlach questioned if the City would incur any financial hardship as a result of
   loaning the money to the Park District. M. Bourke responded that the City will
   not incur financial difficulty arising from the potential loan and that the financing
   would come from the Capital Projects Fund. Council discussed the terms of a
   possible loan to the Park District. M. Bourke indicated that the borrowing rate
   would be floating and be reconsidered on a quarterly or monthly based upon the
   changes in the Treasury rate. M. Bourke noted that it would be in the best interest


                              Page 7 of 13

      MINUTES OF THE REGULAR CITY COUNCIL AND
         COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING

   of the Park District to repay the loan as soon as possible. Council concurred to
   have the City Attorney develop a draft intergovernmental agreement including
   the loan provisions identified during the meeting.

4. Payout Number 1: 2009 Curb & Gutter Program

   P. Bourke referenced the agenda packet materials and recommended that the
   Council approve the first payout for the 2009 Curb & Gutter Program in the
   amount of $58,843.00, which represents 95% of the completed work. After some
   discussions, the Council concurred to place this item on the next Consent
   Agenda.

5. Final Payout: Streambank Stabilization Program

   P. Bourke referenced the agenda packet materials and recommended that the
   Council approve the final payout for the Streambank Stabilization Program in the
   amount of $7,416.70. The Council concurred to place this item on the next
   Consent Agenda.

6. Status Report: Drainage Situation On Summit Avenue and Buttercup Lane

   M. Bourke referenced the information in the agenda packet for the drainage
   concerns on Summit Avenue and Buttercup Lane. P. Bourke discussed the three
   (3) sets of proposed improvements including the portions provided by two (2)
   divisions of DuPage County, the city, and private homeowners. M. Bourke
   indicated that the County agencies are performing their parts of the solution at no
   cost to the City, accept permitting. M. Bourke indicated that staff has done all
   they can for this project including obtaining the assistance from other local
   government agencies and is looking for Council input on whether the project
   should proceed.

   Durham questioned the total cost of the project to the City. M. Bourke indicated
   that the City is estimating that the project will cost the City $13,411. Durham
   questioned if the project would be eligible for a Community Development Block
   Grant (CDBG). Dragan responded that it is unlikely that a CDBG would be
   received for this type of project because normally CDBG are applied towards
   projects that neighborhoods, or at least numerous residences , benefit from, and
   not just two (2) property owners.

   Bojan stated that she supports the City taking care of this public nuisance, but
   that once the project is completed, she does not want to hear any more
   complaints about it, and that the private owners will need to address any other
   issues that arise. Ragucci concurred with Bojan and stated that the City should
   move forward with this project.

              TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2009


   P. Bourke clarified that the proposed solution will not entirely eliminate the
   drainage problems. M. Bourke then explained that the City would like to install a
   larger pipe rather than the eight (8) inch width recommended, but that the County
   would not allow for a larger pipe width. M. Bourke stated that the proposed
   solution will not guarantee that the problem will be completely mitigated, but
   will greatly improve the current status of the rear yard drainage problems.

   Council concurred to move forward with the project and authorize staff to obtain
   easements from the business owners, develop a Request for Proposal, and hire a
   contractor in Spring.

7. Draft Code Amendment:        Seizure And Impoundment Of Motor Vehicles /
   Administrative Tow Fee

   M. Bourke stated that the Administrative Tow Fee has been adopted by
   neighboring communities and that it has been tested in court as being reasonable.
   M. Bourke stated that this is a service that City already provides on a regular
   basis. M. Bourke estimated that the fee would be applied towards 150 vehicles a
   year. M. Bourke explained that the administrative tow fee must be paid before
   the vehicle is released, regardless of whether the individual is found guilty or
   innocent of the violation that generated the impoundment. Collins indicated that
   the proposed ordinance has been working really well in surrounding communities
   and would be worthwhile for the City to consider it.

   Sarallo questioned if the $500 fee amount was consistent throughout the State of
   Illinois. Collins responded that $500 is a reasonable amount and has been
   implemented throughout the State. Bojan asked if the City should consider
   approving this fee after the outcome of the pending lawsuit is determined.
   Gosselar indicated that the lawsuit stems from the kind of offenses for which
   towing is done, rather than the act of towing or the fee amount. Gosselar added
   that she believes that the lawsuit will go in favor of the municipality in question,
   but that she does not know for sure. Gosselar noted that there would not be much
   involved to remedy the situation other than to fix the ordinance thereafter.

   Thomas stated that the fee was unfair. Collins indicated that the fee is justified
   because the vehicles that are towed are operated by offenders with felonies,
   revoked, or suspended licenses. Collins explained that officers spend a large
   amount of time arresting the offenders and the fee is a way to recoup the officer’s
   time. Durham noted that the City is allowed to retain 100% of the tow fee as
   opposed to other tickets, where the court system retains a large portion of the
   fine. Discussions ensued as to how the administrative hearing officer would
   work. Gosselar anticipates that the need for an administrative hearing officer will
   be minimal because most offenders simply pay the fee to retrieve their vehicle.

   Ragucci polled the Council on whether they support the Administrative Tow Fee.
   Vlach, Bojan, Sarallo, Durham, Sayyed and Ragucci supported the fee and
   Thomas was against it. Council concurred to vote on this as a separate item on
   the next agenda.

8. Consideration Of An Economic Incentive Agreement: Coinstar, Inc. – Redbox

   M. Bourke referenced the material included in the agenda packet. M. Bourke
   asked the Council if they were amenable to offering incentives to Redbox to
   remain within Oakbrook Terrace. M. Bourke noted that Redbox is requesting that
   50% of all hotel taxes and the one percent of all municipal sales taxes incurred by
   Redbox be reimbursed. M. Bourke also noted that Redbox is requesting a 50%
   building permit fee reduction for any building enhancements constructed at the
   Oakbrook Terrace Tower. M. Bourke noted that if Redbox does not patronize the
   businesses within Oakbrook Terrace, then no reimbursement would be remitted
   to Redbox.

   Bojan asked what the City will receive from such an agreement. Sayyed
   responded that the City will receive both tangible and intangible benefits. Sayyed
   noted that the tangible portion will probably not be realized right now. Sayyed
   stated however that the intangible will be realized now. Sayyed explained that the
   incentive will reflect the City’s marketing commitment to businesses and the
   business friendly atmosphere that the City espouses. Sayyed also indicated that
   the incentive package will help the City build a portfolio of companies that
   decided to locate or remain within the City. Sayyed favors offering the incentive
   to Redbox because it gives them an opportunity for their business to grow within
   the City.

   Tracy Mulqueen, of the Greater Oak Brook Chamber addressed the Council and
   stated that if more corporate headquarters are located within the City, that other
   corporate headquarters and businesses will be attracted to the City as well.
   Ragucci stated that an incentive package should be drafted and include guidelines
   and parameters.

   Vlach stated that he favors the building permit fee reduction, but expressed that
   he does not know how the City will benefit from the sales tax incentive. Bojan
   stated that she does not have a problem with the incentive proposal, but that she
   wants to ensure that all of Redbox’s reimbursement requests have supporting
   documentation.

   Council concurred to have M. Bourke and Gosselar draft a letter to Redbox
   regarding the incentive proposal and if Redbox responds favorably to draft a
   formal agreement for future Council consideration.

              TUESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2009


9. Trade-In Proposal For Replacement Squad Cars

   Vlach provided some economic reasons on why the 2007 model should not be
   traded-in. Collins indicated that the City is spending a lot of money maintaining
   the 2007 vehicle and that it no longer merits such expense. M. Bourke noted a
   couple of considerations as to why the vehicles should be traded in. First, the
   warranties have expired. Second, Public Works staff is recommending that these
   vehicles not be retained due to the potential high cost of maintenance expenses.

   After further discussions, Council concurred to adopt the ordinance declaring the
   retired squads to be surplus property and to accept the trade-in proposal during
   the reconvened meeting.

10. Draft Code Amendment: Deputy Clerks

   The Council concurred to allow additional flexibility in the appointment of
   Deputy City Clerks and directed the City Attorney to construct an ordinance
   amending the municipal code as presented in the agenda packet for the next
   Consent Agenda.

11. Status Report: Public Services Maintenance Facility

   M. Bourke referenced the Public Services Maintenance Facility materials
   included in the agenda packet.

12. Initial Reactions To Architectural Presentations For A New City Hall / Police
    Station

   M. Bourke suggested to the Council that this discussion be pushed back to the
   November 10, 2009 meeting. M. Bourke asked that Council members send him
   their thoughts about the architectural presentations. After some discussion, the
   Council concurred to review the architectural presentations at the November 10,
   2009 meeting and in the meantime forward their preliminary comments to M.
   Bourke.

      13. Response To Anonymous Ardmore Letter

          M. Bourke referenced the draft press release that was included in the agenda
          packet. Bojan favored the press release and stated that it was accurate and a
          reasonable response. Bojan suggested that it be placed in the Terrace Leaves or
          mailed to all residents. After some discussion and explanation regarding the
          current status of the Ardmore Avenue Extension, the Council concurred to issue
          the press release, post it on the City’s website, and publish it in the next Terrace
          Leaves, but not mail it at this time.

XIV. COUNCIL MEMBER COMMENTS

      Durham asked how the discussions between IDOT and the Village of Oak Brook
      concerning the proposed traffic signal at MacArthur Drive went during their meeting
      on October 19, 2009? M. Bourke stated that based on his discussions with Oak
      Brook’s Village Manager, David Niemeyer, that nothing has changed and the project
      remains status quo.

      Sayyed stated that he, along with Durham and Katz, has been attending the Greater
      Oak Brook Chamber Business Recruitment and Retentions Committee meetings.
      Sayyed noted that the committee is attempting to develop a standardized approach
      when looking to gain and retain businesses. Sayyed stated that from the meetings he
      has learned that companies want to hear from City officials on why they should do
      business within the community. Sayyed asked for the Council’s permission to attend
      meetings with businesses who are looking to relocate.

      Ragucci stated that Durham and Sayyed are moving in the right direction and should
      be commended for their efforts.
