            ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

 

ORDINANCE NO. 6-2006AMENDING ORDINANCE 40-2002 REGARDING RATE OF COMPENSATION FOR AUXILIARY POLICE OFFICERS WITHIN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT OF THE CITY OF SPRINGDALE, OHIO AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY”

 

Mr. Vanover made a motion to adopt and Mr. Galster seconded.

 

Ordinance 6-2006 passed with six affirmative votes.

 

ORDINANCE NO. 10-2006 “DECLARING FIVE VEHICLES AS SURPLUS PROPERTY AND AUTHORIZING THE CITY ADMINISTRATOR TO ADVERTISE, AUCTION AND ENTER INTO A CONTRACT FOR SALE OF SAID VEHICLES AND DELCARING AN EMERGENCY”

 

Mr. Galster made a motion to adopt and Mr. Wilson seconded.

 

Mr. Danbury said I was just looking at number 5, the BMW.

 

Mr. Osborn said that was confiscated in a criminal act and we will sell it at auction.  We will probably have to remit 25 percent of the proceeds from the sale of that vehicle as well as the Cutlass to Crime Stoppers, which is the County’s policy. 

 

Mrs. McNear asked what if there is a loan on a car?

 

Mr. Osborn replied I think that would also come out of the proceeds from the sale.  I’m not really certain though because I’ve never been involved in one that the title was held by somebody else.  Usually those guys are on a cash basis.

 

Ordinance 10-2006 passed with six affirmative votes.

 

OLD BUSINESS

 

            Mr. Galster made a motion to remove Ordinance 2-2006 from the further consideration.  Mr. Danbury seconded.  The motion passed with six affirmative votes.


 

            NEW BUSINESS

 

            Mr. Knox stated in the OML letter each of you received, they gave the impression that HB 82 had passed and was ready for the Governor’s signature.  That is the bill that has to do with the requirement that some cities have that employees be a resident of that city to work for that city.  Springdale does not have that, but as part of home rule, we support the other cities in that.  Mr. Raussen and State Senator Patricia Clancey both voted against it and I give them my commendation for that.

           

            Mr. Schneider said this is old business but I just want to report that the City of Springdale, as of this morning, is the owner of the property of 12065 Greencastle.
