Description Caucus Minutes
Date5/25/2005 Location Council Chamber
Time Speaker Note
6:31:36 PM Gulledge Called the Caucus meeting of Wednesday, May 25, 2005 to order, and invited those in attendance to join in the Pledge of Allegiance. He then asked for a roll call of those officers present. Answering the roll call were Trustees Limberg, Schmidt, Bell, Callahan, Kostyshock, and Garcia. Also in attendance were Clerk Long, Public Works Director Presson, one (1) reporter, and six (6) citizens. Village Engineer Juneau and Attorney Wigginton arrived later.
6:32:28 PM Gulledge Called for approval of the minutes of the May 11th Caucus. He asked if there were any questions, additions, or subtractions to the minutes as prepared by the Clerk. There were none. He asked for a motion to have the minutes placed on file. Kostyshock made the motion and the second was made by Schmidt. Voting on the motion: Limberg - yes; Schmidt - yes; Bell - yes; Callahan - yes; Kostyshock - yes; Garcia - yes. Motion carried.
6:33:07 PM Gulledge Commented they would vary from the agenda. Juneau & Wigginton will arrive soon. He went to item #8 - Planning Commission Recommendation for Amending Zoning Ordinance (RV's, Boats, Trailers, etc.)
6:33:38 PM Schmidt Talked about the Planning Commission meeting held Monday evening. There was a public hearing held concerning possibly amending the ordinance concerning the parking of RVs, boats, trailers, etc. in residential areas. A draft of a proposed ordinance prepared by the attorney was read to the group. Using Power Point, he displayed and discussed the recommendations of the Planning Commission. The general consensus of the group present was they saw no need for a hard surface being required if the RV, boat, trailer, etc. is parked in the back yard. The next suggestion was to allow no more than two units, with the total length not to exceed 40 feet.
6:36:27 PM Gulledge Asked if the two units could be a combination of units. He was told it could be, as long as the length does not exceed 40 feet.
6:36:42 PM Schmidt The last recommendation after much debate, was no fence requirements.
6:36:50 PM Garcia Asked if he was saying they could park two units on the side of the house. Schmidt replied as long as they are on a pad.
6:37:37 PM Gulledge Commented that the Planning Commission is a recommending Board. They recommend, but the Village Board has the final say.
6:39:35 PM Callahan Commented that one of the Planning Commission members pointed out that if they would adopt the draft ordinance, as is, that the people now in compliance would not be in compliance, specifically the back yard requirement. He said he was told that the major complaint is the fence.
6:41:19 PM Schmidt As this discussion continued, commented that the Board has been at this since the beginning of April, and through all the discussions they have had, he is in favor of not changing the ordinance, leave it as it is.
6:41:39 PM Callahan Commented that someone made the comment that the ordinance was written by someone who didn't want people to have campers, etc. This ordinance is more strict that the one currently in place.
6:43:57 PM Garcia Suggests leaving the ordinance as it is, and let them get special use permits if they can't park the unit in the back yard.
6:44:15 PM Gulledge Commented he agrees with Schmidt, a decision has to be made.
6:46:45 PM Bell Said he is for keeping the fence requirement and he thinks there should be a maximum length on a single unit.
6:48:21 PM Limberg Asked if the Planning Commission voted on the recommendations.
6:48:42 PM Schmidt Answered yes. These are the recommendations from the Planning Commission to the Board on the changes they want to see on the draft ordinance.
6:49:03 PM Wigginton Commented that he prepared the draft ordinance based on review of the minutes, and based on what he gathered from his notes, and from talking with the Mayor. He explained his reasons for the items in the ordinance, such as size restrictions, fences, hard surfaces. All ordinances have size restrictions. He talked about making provisions for visitors who come with campers, etc. This is found in Section C.
6:52:02 PM Callahan Said he didn't think the Planning Commission had any problems with sections 4 or 5, or with visitors.
6:52:20 PM Kostyshock Commented that the only problem he has is with the fence. He thinks they would have to have an 8 -10 foot fence gate, and the gate will be left open and it will look worse than no fence at all. He commented about dumpsters and how they are supposed to be behind fences, and the gates are always open.
6:53:04 PM Callahan Asked what happens to this ordinance now, where does it go next. Does it go back to the Planning Commission, and does it eventually work it's way to the Zoning Board of Appeals.
6:53:15 PM Wigginton Answered that if it is the Board's desire to amend the existing ordinance that is on the books, it requires a public hearing at the Planning Commission for their comments. Then, it goes to a public hearing before the Board, and after that public hearing, then the Board can either put it on the agenda, amending the current ordinance or they can send it back to the Planning Commission for another review, or they can do nothing.
6:54:31 PM Callahan Said he thinks the Planning Commission wants to see it again. However, no one could tell them what the procedure was.
6:54:36 PM Wigginton Said they are supposed to give the Board an advisory report. This occurred on Monday night, but he hasn't seen one.
6:54:42 PM Schmidt Commented that he hasn't received the minutes from the Planning Commission yet.
6:54:56 PM Callahan Said someone on the Planning Commission Board commented that if the ordinance was passed the way it was, the people in compliance now would be out of compliance because the Village doesn't have a surface requirement in the back yard. The second one, he said he has never owned a boat or trailer, but one of the Board members had and he said there is no way, most boats and trailers combined are more than twenty foot long, and that is why they said forty. The Board Chairman stated that most of the people there that were complaining were complaining about the fence.
6:56:06 PM Gulledge Commented that the way he understands this is the way the attorney wrote it is an option, it is an option for the Board to decide to keep it the same, or the Board can accept the Planning Commission's recommendation, put them into another draft. The Board can pass it or not pass it, and start all over again. The Board already has the Planning Commission's recommendation, and unless the Board chooses, it does not have to go back to the Planning Commission.
6:56:45 PM Wigginton Commented it doesn't. They are a recommending body and the Board can choose to follow the recommendations or not to follow them.
6:57:04 PM Bell Asked if any one has a problem with the rest of the ordinance, except for the three items, the way Attorney Wigginton drafted it. He said there are five sections. Sections four and five, everyone is agreeable with. He said if the Board can agree on the rest of the ordinance, then they can go over the recommendations one at a time, and choose to take the recommendation or not take it.
6:58:29 PM Gulledge Asked if Bell is suggesting asking if the Trustees are okay with the draft ordinance as it is, not with the recommendations of the Planning Commission. He asked each trustee if they were okay with the draft of 05/23/05 the way it is without any changes.
6:59:07 PM Limberg Replied no, he wants to make changes.
6:59:17 PM Schmidt Replied no. Bell replied no. Callahan said no. Kostyshock said no, and Garcia said no.
6:59:24 PM Gulledge Asked them what they wanted to do.
6:59:59 PM Callahan Asked if everyone agrees with the Planning Commission that sections 4 and 5 are okay. He said he agrees with Bell, there should be a size restriction. The size restriction is 32 feet.
7:00:22 PM Gulledge Asked if they were okay with 32 feet. Limberg, Schmidt, Bell, Callahan, and Garcia were all okay with 32 feet. Kostyshock said no, it needs to be 35 feet.
7:01:15 PM Bell Said he thinks they should require parking surface on the side, he is not sure about the back yard.
7:01:26 PM Gulledge Asked Limberg what he wanted to do. Limberg said he doesn't think it should be in the back yard. He is okay with a hard surface on the side.
7:02:45 PM Schmidt Commented he doesn't want something on the side without a fence, so he is voting no.
7:03:06 PM Bell Said he wants parking on the side, on a hard surface, no hard surface in the back. Callahan agreed with Bell. Kostyshock agreed. Garcia said no. Asked next if they were going to allow more than one unit, and if so, is the total length not to exceed 40 feet. He was told they had already agreed that the maximum length is 32 feet.
7:03:16 PM Gulledge Asked if they wanted to give multiples, or leave it at one and 32 feet.
7:03:21 PM Callahan Commented that they have already set the maximum length of any vehicle at 32 feet. There can't be a 32 foot vehicle and a ten foot vehicle if there is a forty foot limit.
7:03:29 PM Limberg Said the limit is 32 feet whether it is one or two vehicles.
7:03:39 PM Garcia Said she thinks they should say one or two.
7:04:09 PM Callahan As this discussion went on, asked what they were discussing. He was told they were trying to get a draft ordinance. He asked what point they are on.
7:04:19 PM Wigginton Replied D 1-4, RV's, boats, trailers, campers, etc. He said this is not just RVs, it is horse trailers or whatever. Limberg said allow only one, Schmidt said two within the 32 feet; Bell said two within the 32 feet; Callahan said he votes for two vehicles, but is not happy with the 32 feet; Kostyshock said he will go along with two units, but only one unit on the side of the house; Garcia wants only one, and it should be on the side of the house. Wigginton went on to say that most people are responsible, however, it is the irresponsible ones that cause the most problems. Multiple units in the back yard become the eyesore, and they become the problem to the neighbors.
7:07:43 PM Bell Said he would like it to be one on the side, and they could have a second in the back yard. The maximum of any vehicle is 32 feet. He asked if they need another maximum for a total. He said they are saying now that there can be two, but they can only add up to 32 feet.
7:08:42 PM Kostyshock Commented that they should just go with one then, because most boats and trailers are over 30 feet.
7:10:27 PM Gulledge Said he will go with multiples up to 32 feet, and he will go with one on the side and one in the back. He then asked about the fence. Limberg said no fence. Schmidt said yes on the fence, Bell said yes, four to six foot fence; Callahan said no fence; Kostyshock said no fence; Garcia said fence if it is on the side. Mayor also said a fence if it is on the side.
7:11:31 PM Wigginton Said he will prepare an ordinance that states no more than two recreational vehicles. He gave a synopsis of what will be in the ordinance.
7:13:59 PM Gulledge Asked Attorney Wigginton to put together the revised ordinance and have it ready by Wednesday. He asked Schmidt to continue with agenda item 8.
7:15:41 PM Schmidt Gave an update of the public hearing on the Radas property on 162 for the proposed development for Vantage Homes. He gave a power point display of the proposed layout and how the property will be divided. Mayor asked one of the representatives to answer any questions the trustees may have.
7:17:08 PM Kevin Bollman Of 13 Executive Drive, Fairview Heights introduced himself and was ready to answer any questions as Schmidt presented the power point display. He gave a short description of their company, and gave a brief statement on the goals of Vantage Homes. The copy of the preliminary plat was displayed. there are 85 foot home sites, and 60 foot home sites.
7:20:31 PM Bell Asked what the square footage of the 60 foot lots was. Bollman replied they are at least 120 feet deep, and most of the lots are 60 feet wide, some are wider on the corners, etc.
7:20:51 PM Kostyshock Asked what the square footage was for the homes to be built.
7:20:57 PM Bollman Replied they will range from 1800 on up. The next section displayed was attached Villas, two units per lot.
7:22:39 PM Gulledge Commented that there is a possibility, because of the new Stormwater II rules and regulations, that there may not be a lake now.
7:22:59 PM Bollman Replied they are still in the process of their "due diligence" on the property. The Department of Natural Resources, Corp of Engineers, and the EPA all have jurisdictional authority over how a developer can impact different types of streams and wetlands, etc. They are planning on doing a stormwater retention, whether it will be a full size lake or a temporary stormwater storage is still in question.
7:23:55 PM Kostyshock Asked what was going to be developed first.
7:24:17 PM Bollman Answered the plans are to do it all at once.
7:25:19 PM Callahan Asked how many there will be. Bollman answered there are approximately 60 of each residential. Callahan commented that there will be 60 sixty foot, and sixty 85 foot. He asked if there are sixty villas. Bollman replied there are about fifty villas, which is twenty-five buildings. He asked about Townhouses. Bollman replied there will be 48 units, which is 12 lots. Callahan asked where the sewer goes.
7:25:58 PM Gulledge Answered it goes toward the hospital. The other line is too small.
7:26:00 PM Callahan Commented he thought they planned on running the sewers toward Edwardsville and Glen Carbon. Mayor replied their lines are too small. Juneau confirmed this. Callahan commented that this will put another 230 units on the lift station behind the hospital. He was told they were. The lift station will be upgraded.
7:27:04 PM Bollman Commented they are planning on sharing the cost, or paying for, the upgrade of the sewer station.
7:27:13 PM Garcia Said she is not sure she is satisfied with 60 feet lots. She said that is a lot of houses in the area.
7:27:25 PM Callahan Asked why the Village wants to give someone a 30% reduction in lot sizes.
7:27:38 PM Schmidt Replied this is the concept of a PDR.
7:27:40 PM Limberg Commented that he works on a lot of houses, and 60 foot lots are very popular with certain segments of the population.
7:27:47 PM Callahan Replied that they take the existing developers "to course", give variances for five feet, and now they are letting someone come in and build, waiving the zoning. He asked why, what is the advantage to the Village to waive the zoning. The Village doesn't have sixty foot family zoning.
7:28:21 PM Gulledge Replied that is lot size, not zoning. He said it up to the Board to approve the PDR, and they did.
7:29:31 PM Callahan Commented that he didn't go on the bus tour, but he doesn't see any advantage to putting 220 homes in an area this size.
7:29:47 PM Schmidt Replied that they are giving people a choice that they currently do not have. He said people who are older in age, who want some yard, but not a lot of yard to maintain.
7:31:14 PM Gulledge Commented that this is a concept; it is up to the Board to decide if they want to go along with this or not. He said he did go on the tour. He saw the 60 foot lots, and at first he didn't care for the 60 foot lots, but as he looked into this, he found out this is what is catching on. He feels the developers are confident they will sell, or they wouldn't be building them.
7:32:39 PM Bell Said he had the same concern when he went on the bus tour. He was impressed with the quality of the houses, and everything they looked at. He commented that the older community they went in, looked as nice as the newer one. They are well taken care of. He said he has the same problem with the lot sizes. However, he realizes there are some people who don't want large lots. The houses he saw were nice, but he didn't like the setback.
7:33:53 PM Callahan Asked what communities around the Village is building these. He was told Glen Carbon, O'Fallon, Old Troy Road, Fairview, Belleville, and Shiloh.
7:34:13 PM Bell Commented that St. Charles is building these also. These are not the only developers building these. Others are doing the same thing.
7:35:07 PM Callahan Said his main concern, other than the sixty foot lots, is the lift station that will be servicing this subdivision.
7:35:55 PM Bell Asked Bollman, if the Board has a major problem with the setback on the 60 foot lots, is it a "deal breaker" with them.
7:36:56 PM Bollman Answered. However, his answer was not legible due to interference of others talking.
7:37:57 PM Presson Commented on the lift station. He and the engineer are working on this. They are aware of the developments going in the area. They are diligently working on this. He and Juneau have several ideas they are working on.
7:39:00 PM Juneau Commented that you don't limit development because of the infrastructure, you add on to the infrastructure to accommodate new developments. He spoke about building on to the system. He said the plan is to build a major interceptor sewer system around the south side of town. They have plans for additional lift stations south of Main Street, and reroute some of the sewers as development takes place.
7:40:43 PM Gulledge Thanked Bollman for coming, and went to the next agenda item, Sewer Tap On Fees For Multi Use Customers.
7:41:12 PM Juneau Discussed the sewer tap on fees. He said it is his recommendation that the Village look at fees as they relate to uses other than single family residential, such as hotels, car washes, Laundromats, restaurants, etc. These types of facilities impact the amount of wastewater going to the lift stations, and the wastewater treatment plant. He said the Village should have something to pass on part of the cost to the heavy users. He said they have looked at other communities and how they are handling this problem. Most communities do not have anything on their books to take care of this. A couple of local communities do. He said he has prepared a letter comparing what these communities are doing. He talked about apartment buildings, up to ten units paying the full tap on fee, per apartment. Beyond ten he recommends the population equivalent. He discussed his example in the letter. He proposes coming up with a fee equivalent to a population equivalent, which is each person per sewer. He said he put together an estimated Population Equivalent of $150.
7:50:19 PM Callahan Asked about an eleven unit apartment building versus a ten unit. The example in his letter is $2100 per unit up to ten. He asked what the cost would be for an eleven unit apartment.
7:51:04 PM Juneau Explained the PE for apartment buildings and replied the tap on fee would be $4,125.00.
7:51:17 PM Gulledge Commented in order to shorten the discussion, he thinks the only question is what number to use for the PE.
7:51:28 PM Callahan Said he has a problem with the numbers. A ten unit apartment costs $21,000 in tap on fees, but an eleven unit pays only $4125. He commented on the elder care. The example has Troy at $75,000, Collinsville at $50,000, and Glen Carbon at $8,000. Maryville is at 20,000. He feels they should get closer to the figures of Collinsville or Troy.
7:53:47 PM Juneau Commented that the Village can revise the example to be per room type basis or raise the cost per PE. However, by raising the PE, it drives up the cost of car washes, restaurants, etc.
7:54:13 PM Callahan Asked Juneau if he was using a standardized number that is supplied by an outside source.
7:54:24 PM Juneau Said he is using the same number that, if someone comes in to make a private sewer connection that is over 1,500 gallons a day, they must get a permit signed by the Mayor for that private sewer connection.
7:55:07 PM Gulledge Asked the other trustees how they felt about this. Limberg is comfortable with the 150. Schmidt Said he wouldn't go more than 200 on the PE; 150 may be a bit low. Bell likes the formula using PE. They can raise the multiplier when needed. He said he is in favor 150 or 200.
7:57:12 PM Callahan Commented that looking at this as revenue source, it isn't stopping the building in Edwardsville or Troy. He doesn't think it will stop building in Maryville.
7:57:33 PM Schmidt Said they need to get something on books before something comes in. If it isn't working to their liking, they can increase or decrease it.
7:57:55 PM Wigginton Reminded the Board that something needs to be put on the books, because there is nothing that addresses commercial, restaurants, car washes, etc.
7:58:51 PM Kostyshock Commented that they must remember, when the nursing home is built, they will be getting water, sewer usage, motor fuel tax, property tax, sales tax, etc. He thinks the PE should be raised to 200.
7:59:02 PM Garcia Said she agrees with Callahan, she doesn't think it is fair that a developer can build an eleven unit building cheaper than a ten unit. She is in favor of 200.
7:59:40 PM Gulledge Said three are in favor of 200 for the PE, two are in favor of 150, one is undecided, he votes 150.
8:01:18 PM Wigginton Said he will have an ordinance ready for Wednesday's Board meeting.
8:01:50 PM Juneau Talked about apartments. He said the Board can set the number to any number they want.
8:04:00 PM Callahan Asked if an apartment could be considered elder care. Juneau replied that elder care is not an apartment.
8:05:09 PM Gulledge Went to the next agenda item, and asked Kostyshock to talk about the Old Town Sewer bids.
8:05:28 PM Kostyshock Said this is the sewer project on the east side of 159, which is Lange, Donk, and Division Streets. There were seven bids. Petroff Trucking Company was low bid at $$378,885.23; Moniger Excavating Company bid $399,914.77; Davinroy Mechanical Company bid 408,375.10; Korte & Luitjohn bid $451,848.50; Stutz Excavating Company bid $456,393.51; D&K Backhoe bid $574,059.00; and Thiems Construction bid $580,960.40.
8:07:27 PM Kostyshock Gave the bids for the 18" Parallel Interceptor Sewer Project. He said the engineers estimate was $276,965.50. There were seven bids on this project. HCS Lynch Construction bid $277,842.25, and this is the low bid. D&K Backhoe bid $327,161.00; Haier Plumbing & Heating bid $341,655.70; Widman Construction bid $386,067.00; Korte & Luitjohn bid $398,907.00; Ehret, Inc. bid $446,251.80; and Keller Construction bid $503,691.40.
8:09:18 PM Callahan Asked if the 18" Parallel Interceptor Sewer is the one that runs along the bike trail. He was told it was. He asked about the Old Town Storm Sewer Project. He asked if the Village had easements for both of these projects.
8:10:08 PM Gulledge Answered they don't have all of them for the 18" Parallel. They do if they go one direction, but they don't if they go another direction. He said on the Old Town Sewer they have most of the easements they need. There may be a couple on Third Street.
8:10:16 PM Gulledge Talked about the bid opening on the Maryville Outreach Center. The apparent low bidder is H&S Contractors from Roxana. He and Juneau will be meeting with them tomorrow to talk about the project. They will also be meeting with Community Development at 9:00 a.m.
8:11:38 PM Gulledge Discussed the GASB 34 bid proposal from Jim Ferris. He is willing to come in and set this up, but, the Public Works employees will do the tagging. He gave his engagement letter for one year of auditing at $5500 and will do the GASB 34 for $2500 for a total of $8000.00.
8:14:05 PM Bell Suggests looking into purchasing the module from Data Technology that goes with our system.
8:14:48 PM Gulledge Asked the trustees if they were okay with this. They were. This will be on the agenda next week for approval. He went to the next agenda item, 2005-2006 Budget, and asked Callahan to discuss it.
8:15:37 PM Callahan Said Schardan gave him a number adjusting his budget for the Police Department because of the Health Insurance. He said once the Board decides the amount of the raises and the amount of the insurance increases that will be paid by the Village, the department heads can adjust their budgets accordingly. He said the proposals discussed this evening are necessary to do, however, the Board needs to figure out how to pay for them.
8:16:53 PM Gulledge Went to Calendar Updates
8:17:07 PM Bell Said the Memorial Service will be on Monday; May 30th. The Collinsville Intermediate School Band will be playing; Village Hall will be closed. The Library workday is Friday, June 3rd; the Fishing Derby and the Book sale is Saturday, June 18th and there is a Concert in the Park on Sunday, June 26th, with Tools Of The Trade.
8:18:56 PM Gulledge Went to the To Do List, page 1.
8:19:23 PM Callahan Asked what they decided to do about the Fire Department Drive and parking.
8:19:40 PM Gulledge Answered they haven't done anything yet. It isn't any worse than it was, but it does need to be fixed. He and Bell got prices, but it is very expensive to do this with concrete. He said if it was up to him, he would fix it with an asphalt overlay.
8:20:59 PM Garcia Asked if there has been any word from CARD. Mayor answered he has received nothing, except they were going ahead with buying the property. He went to page 2.
8:21:58 PM Schmidt Discussed the leaf burning issue. He said that the last time this was discussed, there were some notes concerning time frames that were to be given to the attorney. Attorney Wigginton replied he has this on his "To Do List".
8:22:37 PM Bell Commented that they had another GIS meeting. They are proceeding along, they have some good ideas. He will be coming to the Board for the purchase of a server for the GIS soon. Juneau is working on the contract for the second phase of GIS. He said the staff is doing a good job.
8:23:15 PM Gulledge Talked about the Parks. He said he and Bell are going to attempt to meet with a person to design the Firemen's Park restroom facility on Friday at 11 a.m. He is also going to be working through Juneau's office on the two grants. He expects to be getting a drawing or something in the next few weeks on the one that will be by the bike trail on Parkview Drive.
8:24:26 PM Bell Talked about the PEP grant and the parking blocks. He asked if there is a layout for parking blocks Gulledge answered that Roger Shoup and Carol Frerker, who are on the Park and Library Committees are looking at this with Al Ebert. They are going to put something together and bring it to the Park Committee, then to the Board. Bell commented that he brought this up because he was told that the parking blocks were for the State. Mayor told him that whoever told him this is wrong. Presson and Mann both know the blocks belong to the Parks. Callahan asked if there will be restrictions on the parking lots along 159. Mayor replied no, but they will be governed by the Village when the are completed.
8:26:47 PM Gulledge Went to page 3. He said they have finalized the loop of the water system, on Keebler Road. It is completed. The water well may be done. Kostyshock said they will finish up by Friday. The information on the water and sewer use rate study is completed. It will be provided in the Caucus packets. He went to page 4. There was nothing to discuss. He went to Trustee Comments.
8:28:14 PM Schmidt Talked about the resolutions they will be voting on at the Board meeting. He said there is a piece of property on 157 currently owned by one of the Keller family members. They will be selling this property to a resident of Granite City. His last name is Lombardi. He is asking for a rezoning to B-l. They own and run an interior decorating company. Also, a resident, "Bud" Kneedler, wants to develop the property he owns behind the car wash. He wants to put a storage yard for towed vehicles there. The Planning Commission recommends that he go to the Zoning Board for a special use permit. They want the entire surface covered with clean rock and enclosed in an eight foot fence. Also discussed was the Kostyshock Minor Subdivision. Kostyshock is asking permission to split the lot to make room for another residence. The last item was final plat approval for Stonebridge Estates. The Village Engineer has a few concerns. The Osborns were not at the meeting, therefore this matter was tabled.
8:33:52 PM Bell Said he would like the attorney and trustees to look over the Schiller maintenance agreement. If there are no problems with it, he wants to have this on the agenda next week.
8:34:39 PM Kostyshock Asked if they are going to do anything with the cemetery expansion. He said he talked with the caretaker of Buck Road Cemetery, and they have about three hundred fifty lots left. Mayor said he thinks they need to look into this and try to get a price, then discuss it in closed session.
8:35:11 PM Gulledge Reminded everyone again of the Memorial Day Service to be held here in the Centennial Plaza. It is sponsored by the American Legion Post 917 and the Ministerial Alliance. He asked Attorney Wigginton to read the reason for Closed Session.
8:35:47 PM Wigginton Stated that the Mayor is seeking a motion to go into Closed Session to discuss the appointment, employment, compensation, discipline, performance or dismissal of one or more employees of the Public Body. Mainly, this is to discuss the raises of the employees of the Village of Maryville.
The motion was made by Schmidt, seconded by Bell. Voting on the motion: Limberg - yes; Schmidt - yes; Bell - yes; Callahan - yes; Kostyshock - yes; Garcia - yes. Motion carried.
