Mr. Danbury made a motion to adopt and Mr. Galster seconded.
Mayor Webster said before this is passed I just want to make sure that the definition here should seek up with the ordinance that was passed two meetings ago regarding vehicles on the public street.
Mr. Osborn said they were drafted together and we worked on this one definition for both ordinances from the very beginning.
Ordinance 26-2005 passed with seven affirmative votes.
ORDINANCE NO. 27-2005 “ACCEPTING A BID AND AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR AND CLERK OF COUNCIL/FINANCE DIRECTOR TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT WITH THE ZERO-BREESE COMPANY FOR REPLACEMENT OF THE MUNICIPAL BUILDING ROOF AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY”
Mr. Vanover made a motion to adopt and Ms. Pollitt seconded.
Mr. Osborn said we would like to recommend Council’s
approval of this legislation.
Zero-Breese is a 100-year old company.
In checking their background the Engineer’s office found that they have
an open-ended contract with
Mr. Wilson asked how is the composition of this proposed roof different from what’s up there now?
Mr. Osborn replied the material we have up there now is not even on the market anymore. The company went out of business. It was an asbestos type product that simulated slate. It was very durable. Because of the asbestos issue the company substituted cement for asbestos in the shingle. As a result they lost the binding. We didn’t want to take a chance on an exotic roof material again so we are going to one of the most used commercial shingles there is on the market from the biggest company on the market. We think it will have a very nice aesthetic finish to it.
Mr. Wilson asked what is the life of it?
Mr. Osborn responded we expect at least twenty years.
Mayor Webster said this roof is very similar in appearance to that you see on the CVS building and the new UDF building.
Ordinance 27-2005 passed with seven affirmative votes.

Mr. Danbury said there is a situation with a resident who
Mr. Osborn said I would like to know a little more about that. I understood that we could deal with the situation of sump pumps being discharged directly to the gutter creating an ice problem.
Mr. Osborn stated Brock and Sons is a new contractor to the
City. We’ve never had any experience
with them but the Engineer’s office has checked their references. The City of
Mr. Galster said the only things left in residential for full curb and resurfacing are on Glensprings and the cul-de-sacs.
Mr. Osborn replied no, we didn’t do
Mayor Webster said we have to do the five cul-de-sacs off Glensprings but do we need to do the curbs also? This puts us in great shape for residential streets but we have some commercial streets that we need to look at.
Ordinance 28-2005 passed with seven affirmative votes.

Ms. Pollitt said we have a resident on Smiley who was not able to get into her garage for quite some time. When it became apparent that we were going to be doing street repairs over there I brought it to the Administration’s attention. They sent Dave Butsch and Tim Green out. Engineers went out and looked at it and now she is able to get into her driveway. I appreciate their efforts in that. I also had a thank you from Bill Jones on Observatory. The City worked around a fire hydrant that needed some attention.
Mr. Galster said about two weeks ago
I gave a presentation to the Planning Partnership on housing. It gave me an opportunity to put a package
together on what the City of
