6:31:39 PM Gulledge Agenda item number 1: Request from CMT YMCA regarding half-marathon - Miriam Bell, YMCA. Asked Miriam Bell, YMCA, Program Director to step to the podium and to please state her name and address for the record.
6:31:46 PM Miriam Bell Miriam Bell, 137 Valley Drive, Caseyville, IL. She passed out the course map on the upcoming race. The runners loved the route last year and received positive remarks about the course, running past the winery and Drost Park and Lakeview Acres. Fortunate to have volunteer medics onsite last year. Several were willing to come down for the day and bring an EMS truck to stay onsite. They have agreed to do this again this year which is a huge step in the safety of all runners.
6:33:45 PM Gulledge Noted Trustee Bell arrived and was seated.
6:33:50 PM Miriam Bell This event brings over 200 top marathon volunteers to work the course with water stops, hospitality and giving out medals. This is not only just the CMT YMCA but the entire Southwest Illinois YMCA event. Miriam is representing for the entire association and they would like permission to repeat this event again. Miriam Bell offered to answer any questions or concerns.
6:34:25 PM Schmidt One concern last year was running on East Main there isn't a sidewalk so the runners have to run on the street. Did they have any problems with that?
6:34:40 PM Miriam Bell One resident did complain that he didn't like the cones on the street, they got a phone call and race staff was alerted and removed all the cones. The race started at 7:00 a.m. and since East Main is the beginning of the course the cones were cleared on that area by 8:30 a.m.
6:35:23 PM Gulledge Cones need to be out on the course, so it keeps runners off the street.
6:36:04 PM Miriam Bell One change on proposal is the paramedics rules have changed per Michael Gilbert, head paramedic with the event. In order for paramedics to work onsite, they need to be assisting the Village of Maryville EMS staff.
6:38:54 PM Gulledge Asked Miriam Bell to send him Michael Gilbert's phone number and he will get him in touch with the Maryville Fire Chief to work out the details. The Board feels like the event is good for Maryville.
6:39:41 PM Miriam Bell Event is Sunday, May 20, 2012 7:00 a.m. Entire event is over by noon with the awards ceremony.
6:39:55 PM Gulledge Stated event will be formally approved next week.
6:40:16 PM Gulledge Introduced Bill Beatty to discuss a resolution for approving a tax exempt financing compliance procedure for conduit bond issues and a resolution authorizing the issuance of hospital revenue bonds (Anderson Hospital).
6:40:44 PM Beatty Bill Beatty, 80 Santa Anita. Beatty explained like the Mayor stated this is the second half of the bond issue. Everything else will work the same as before. Hospital already started the building. They split the bond issue into two groups due to the limit per year. The bonds are secured by the hospital, the Village has no liability on these bonds. Does bring about 40-50 jobs to our area. One new requirement is the Village will need a bond compliance officer on our staff. There will be no out of pocket costs for the Village, but we will need a staff member to attend training.
6:43:21 PM Gulledge Mayor said the Board will discuss and decide on which Village staff member to attend training.
6:43:33 PM Schmidt Is this training done online or a class that they attend? Would it be additional cost to send two employees?
6:43:58 PM Beatty Believes they are glad to do it a free training because its a part of their business and will offer to all area municipalities.
6:44:42 PM Short Noted with in the bond resolutions, it had stated any out going Bond Compliance Officer would be required to train the new replacement officer.
6:45:30 PM Gulledge Mayor and the Board feels this has been good for Maryville in a number of ways. Hospital has saved money and brought jobs to town.
