OKAY, GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

[1. Call The Meeting To Order - Mayor Jeff Gore]

IT IS FIVE 34 AND WE ARE STARTING THE STATE HUBER HEIGHTS CITY COUNCIL MEETING EMERGENCY SESSION.

IT'S A HYBRID IN-PERSON MEETING REMOTE TODAY'S MARCH 16TH, 2021.

UH, AND WE ARE HERE AT CITY HALL COUNCIL CHAMBERS.

THIS MEANS OFFICIALLY CALLED TO ORDER MR. ROGERS, IF HE'D CALL THE ROLL, PLEASE.

MR. SHAW HERE.

MS. BAKER.

YEAH.

MR. CAMPBELL HERE.

MRS. BERG HERE.

MR. OTTO HERE.

MR. LYONS HERE, MR. HILL HERE.

MR. WEBB HERE, AMERICORPS HERE.

AND

[ An Ordinance Amending Ordinance No. 2020-O-2453 By Making Supplemental Appropriations For Expenses Of The City Of Huber Heights, Ohio For The Period Beginning January 1, 2021 And Ending December 31, 2021. (second reading)]

NEXT UP IS ITEM NUMBER THREE, WHICH IS NEW BUSINESS.

AND MR. ROGERS, WOULD YOU READ THE RESOLUTION OR ORDINANCE PLEASE? ITEM THREE, A AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE NUMBER TWO ZERO TWO ZERO DASH ZERO DASH TWO FOUR FIVE THREE.

BY MAKING SUPPLEMENTAL APPROPRIATIONS FOR EXPENSES OF THE CITY OF YOUR RIGHTS, OHIO FOR THE PERIOD BEGINNING JANUARY 1ST, 2021 AND ENDING DECEMBER 31ST, 2021 AT THE SECOND RATE.

OKAY.

AND THIS IS THE SECOND READING OF THIS PARTICULAR ORDINANCE.

IS THERE A MOTION, MR. WEBB? SLOW-MO IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND? OKAY.

MR. CAMPBELL, SECOND MOTION.

AND SECOND, IS THERE ANY DISCUSSION MS. RADHA? UH, I DON'T KNOW WHO TO ASK THE QUESTION, BUT, UH, IS THIS AMOUNT GOING TO COVER WHAT IT NEEDS TO COVER AFTER THE EMAIL THAT WE RECEIVED FROM MR. MCDONALD TODAY STATING THAT THESE, UH, THE BENEFITS OF THE, UH, INSURANCE AND WHATNOT ARE GONNA RUN ABOUT $20,000? OR IS THIS GOING TO COME SHORT? OKAY.

OH, PROBABLY BETTER TO NOT HAVE IT ON.

UH, YES, I CAN ANSWER THAT QUESTION.

UM, THE, OBVIOUSLY FOR THE BUDGET FOR 2021, WE HAD BUDGETED FOR THE CITY MANAGER POSITION TO, UH, BE PAID HEALTH INSURANCE.

UH, AS ALL OTHER EMPLOYEES WOULD BE ENTITLED TO HEALTH INSURANCE.

SO THAT HAS BEEN IN THE BUDGET FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.

SO IF WE HIRE A NEW CITY MANAGER AND THAT HAPPENS BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR, THEN WE WOULD NEED TO SUPPLEMENT THE BUDGET FOR HEALTH INSURANCE FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL AT THAT TIME.

BUT CURRENTLY, AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE ENOUGH IN THE BUDGET.

IT'S ALREADY BUDGETED FOR THAT POSITION TO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THIS YEAR.

SO THE ONLY NEED WOULD BE THE 150,000 FOR THE CONSULTING.

OKAY.

WELL, AS A FOLLOWUP TO THAT QUESTION AND WOULDN'T WOULD THE SAME OLD TRUE THEN FOR THE ACCRUED VACATION AND SICK LEAVE AND SALARY AND ALL THAT, WOULD THAT NOT HAVE ALREADY BEEN PREVIOUSLY BUDGETED FOR THIS YEAR? UM, EACH YEAR BUDGET FOR A POTENTIAL FOR, UH, THERE'S, UH, AN ALLOTMENT, UH, FOR EVERYONE TO, UH, TAKE OUT A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF, UM, UH, VACATION BUYOUT, UM, THAT IS ALLOWED FOR IF YOU'VE BEEN HERE, I THINK FIVE YEARS OR GREATER.

AND SO WE BUDGET FOR WHAT WE THINK WILL HAPPEN BASED ON PREVIOUS, UH, OCCURRENCES.

SO THERE WAS MONEY IN THE BUDGET FOR THAT.

OKAY.

SO THEN IS THE 150,000 INAPPROPRIATE FOR THIS ACTIONS AND AS SOME OF THESE THINGS ARE ALREADY COVERED OR IS THAT NUMBER ACCURATE? WE ALL FEEL THAT'S THE PROPER NUMBER.

YES, I, I W I WOULD NOT HAVE RECOMMENDED THAT IF IT, IF IT WEREN'T THE CASE, UM, THE, UM, YES, WE'VE ALREADY DISCUSSED THAT INTERNALLY THAT, UH, THERE WAS A NEED FOR THAT.

OBVIOUSLY THERE WILL BE SAVINGS.

NOW THIS, THIS PAYMENT IS NOT OUT OF PAYROLL.

THE OTHER EXPENSES THAT YOU'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT ARE OUT OF THE PERSONNEL SECTION OF THE BUDGET.

SO THIS IS A PAYMENT THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE TAXED BECAUSE IT IS A, AN OPERATIONAL AGREEMENT.

IT'S A, UM, IT'S A CONSULTING AGREEMENT.

SO THAT WILL BE PAID OUT OF THE OPERATING SIDE OF THE BUDGET.

UM, WHILE THE PERSONNEL SIDE IS ALSO OPERATING, BUT THERE'S A DEFINITE DISTINCTION.

UH, YOU CANNOT MOVE MONEY FROM PERSONNEL SAVINGS, WHICH WILL WE'LL HAVE A SAVINGS BECAUSE WE WILL NOT HAVE A, UH, CITY MANAGER IN PLACE FOR, YOU KNOW, FEW MONTHS.

SO, UH, THERE WILL BE A SAVINGS THERE, BUT, UM, I, UH, YOU KNOW, JUST SO THE COUNCIL KNOWS, EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE, OH, YOU WOULD BE APPROVING $150,000, THERE WILL BE A SAVINGS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF NOT HAVING A CITY MANAGER IN PLACE FOR A FEW MONTHS.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

IT WAS DISCUSSION FROM COUNCIL, OR I JUST CLARIFY THAT THE MOTION IS TO ADOPT.

IT WAS JUST ENDED EMOTION GENERICALLY.

SO IT IS A MOTION TO ADOPT THE ORDINANCE.

OKAY.

MISALIGNED,

[00:05:01]

UH, THANK YOU.

UH, JERRY, HOW MUCH IS THE TOTAL, UM, CONSULTING AGREEMENT NOW WITH THE NEW ADDITION THAT YOU ADDED TO HIS PLACE? IT'S STILL $150,000 FOR THE CASH PAYMENT.

AND THEN THE INSURANCE COST, INSTEAD OF $5,000 IS GOING TO BE APPROXIMATELY $20,000.

OKAY.

SO WHAT'S THAT TOTAL, OKAY.

$770,000.

OKAY.

AND I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT THE LAPTOP.

IS THE LAPTOP INCLUDED IN THIS, OR WAS THAT ISSUE DROPPED? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE LAPTOP? THE LAPTOP IS INCLUDED, BUT I DON'T KNOW THE VALUE OF THE LAPTOP.

I'M SORRY, JERRY, I DIDN'T HEAR THAT.

WOULD YOU SPEAK UP PLACE CHAIR? I'M SORRY.

THE LAPTOP IS INCLUDED, BUT I DO NOT KNOW THE VALUE OF THE LAPTOP.

OKAY.

AGAIN, YOU TAILED OFF WAS THE, I DIDN'T SEE THE LAPTOP IN THE CONTRACTING AGREEMENT.

WAS THAT IN THERE? IT IS ON THE LAST SENTENCE AND PARAGRAPH TWO.

UH, YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

I MISSED THAT.

MY APOLOGIES.

THANK YOU.

UM, JERRY, I APPRECIATE THAT, UM, UH, THIS WHOLE PROCESS, UH, THE MAYOR, UH, WANTED TO FORCE THE RESIGNATION, UH, THEN THE MAYOR CONNED SOME COUNCIL MEMBERS WITH DIFFERENT WORDING IN THE MOTION.

AND NOW THAT BRINGS US TO THIS PARTICULAR APPROPRIATION.

UH, I'M NOT GOING TO VOTE FOR THIS APPROPRIATION TONIGHT BECAUSE I DON'T FEEL WE SHOULD BE PAYING THE CONTRACT AMOUNT FOR SEVERANCE PACKAGE.

UM, IF WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TERMINATE WITH CAUSE, AND, UH, THAT WOULD HAVE SAVED US A CITY EASILY, 75, 80,000 OF THE TAXPAYER'S DOLLARS.

NOW, IF I WERE TO MAKE A PREDICTION, I WOULD PREDICT A BIG BAG OF MONEY SHOWING UP ON SOMEBODY'S BACK PORCH, BEHIND SOME BUSHES FOR THEIR CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR.

AND I BET THAT THERE ARE COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO WOULD BE UNAWARE OF THAT HAPPENING.

DON'T EXPECT THAT SHOW UP ON THE CAMPAIGN FINANCE REPORT, EITHER AS A PUBLIC RECORD.

AND THAT'S THE KIND OF ACTION THAT LANDS HIPO IN PRISON.

IS THAT ALL MR. LYONS FOR NOW? YES.

ANY OTHER DISCUSSION BY COUNSEL? OKAY.

MR. ROGERS WOULD HAVE, UH, SOMEONE HEAR THE WIND TO SPEAK.

I KNOW WE HAD, I HAVE ONE CITIZENS COMMENT, LINDA MARGARET.

OKAY.

SO NO LONGER NECESSARY.

SHE DECLINES WITH TIME CAPES AND NO FURTHER DISCUSSION.

THERE'S AN EMOTION THAT'S BEEN SECONDED.

MR. ROGERS CALDWELL PLEASE.

MS. BAKER.

YES.

MR. CAMPBELL.

YES.

MRS. BERG.

YES.

MR. OTTO.

NO.

MR. LYONS.

NO, MR. HILL.

YES.

MR. WEBB.

YES.

MR. SHAW, NO.

AND MOTION FOR SUBMITTAL CARRIES FIVE TO THREE, AND THAT IS ALL WE HAVE FOR THE SPECIAL SESSION.

AND IT IS NOW FIVE 43.

AND THIS MEETING IS ADJOURNED.
