A. POLICE DEPARTMENT: Chief Nathan Taylor (unable to attend)
Chief Taylor was handling the traffic control on St Rt 93 as the dairy removes tanks from their plant.
B. FIRE DEPARTMENT:  Chief Chris Colucy
 1. There were 77 calls in September.
  1. The Chief met with Gatchell Grant Services to discuss a SAFER grant.  The Chief stated a new pumper would cost $750,000 and a new ladder truck would cost $1,200,000.  There is also a lead time of three-years.
  2. The Fire Department will be using Field #3 for a landing zone for two Life Flight helicopters.
  3. EMT Matt Bair would like to start staffing for our 24-hour coverage.
  4. Council Member Hilliard stated that Wooster is getting a new ladder truck for $1,500,000 in two-years.
  5. Mayor Hawk asked the Chief if there was any word on the new ambulance.  The chief stated the completion date has been pushed back to the first quarter of 2023.
  1. The VA and Solicitor have been discussing the employee handbook procedures and policies.  VA Miller has developed and implemented the current employee handbook.  Both the VA and the Solicitor would like to have an outside expert review the work that has been done to ensure that both the employee and the employer are protected.  A labor lawyer would be ideal to do this because they have a greater understanding of the status of the law and have been able to keep up with the changes in this area of law.  Attorney Jonathan Downes has been contacted and he has supplied an engagement letter and has supplied the Standard Terms of Engagement.  The engagement letter contained the hourly rates.  Solicitor Anthony stated he estimates it will be around $2,000.  He is asking Council’s approval for this retainage agreement.  Council Member Godwin asked which fund should be used.  Clerk-Treasurer suggested the General Fund.  VA Miller stated that Jonathan Downes’ expertise is in labor law.
  1. Trick or Treat: October 31 from 6pm to 7:30 pm.  A party will follow at 8 pm in the new community room.
  2. Council Member Hilliard reported that the Fairless Toy Distribution funding is way down this year.  Donations are down 50%.  Donations for children 11 and under needed are unwrapped toys and for 12 and up are gift cards.  Any donations are appreciated and are being accepted at Village Hall.
Council received the Village Administrator’s report last week to review.  Administrator’s report for period 9/20/2022 thru 10/03/2022:
COUNCIL MEMBER GODWIN MOVED, SECONDED BY COUNCIL MEMBER RADICH and motion carried to accept the VA’s report as written and emailed to Council and to enter it into the record of tonight’s meeting.  The vote: All yes.
VA Miller addressed the following items that have occurred since the email went out: 
  • AMP – The Electric Department won three awards.  The System Improvement Award, The Safety Award, and Kyle Wade won the Hard Hat Award.
  • Solar Field – We are working on the road.  Myron Miller is concerned about the property line.  GPD is coming in to relocate the stakes.  They were run over by the mower.  The new stakes will be permanent.
  • Filter Media Project – Tank #3 is the worst of the 4 tanks.  We are looking at what needs to be repaired before we can refill the tank.  We discovered that we do not need the screen and the metalworks that are required for it.  We are hoping the savings from not putting screens in #3 and #4 will compensate for the extra costs for the pitting repair on tank #3.
Council Member Godwin asked if the Sugar Creek clearing was going to be completed this year.  VA Miller stated he has contracted with Haymaker Tree Service, and they will be starting soon.  They will be using the wood chips to create a walking path.  There will also be a gate put up to prevent vehicles from driving down too far.  There will be parking along St Rt 93.  It will be available during daylight hours.  There have been concerns about fires at night, turtle snaring, beer cans and other trash and illegal activities.  We want to make this a place that families can take their kids to fish and enjoy the outdoors.
Council Member Hilliard is concerned about change orders on the Filter Media Project.  VA Miller stated that there have been no change orders on this project.  We are trying to offset some of the additional pitting.  The discussion turned to removing the tank and replacing it.  The only way to take that tank out would be with a crane through the roof.  It would be more cost effective to put a new tank in and just leave tank #3 where it sits.
Council Member Hilliard asked if our linemen have ever requested to go on mutual aid.  Council Member Godwin reported that 6 AMP member communities have responded.  VA Miller stated that a lot of what they need is equipment such as poles and transformers.  It is hard for a community our size to be able to help with this because we don’t have as much in stock and the current restock time can be up to two years.
OPWC Tuscarawas/Locustdale/Pinewood Water Line Replacement Project.Council voted to award a contract for the Tuscarawas/Locustdale/Pinewood Water Line Replacement Project to Dirt Dawg in the amount of $290,927. The Village has received an OPWC Grant in the amount of $113,817. The Village has also received an OPWC loan in the amount of $75,878 for this project. That leaves a balance of $101,232.
As we discussed at the February 7th, 2022 Finance Committee Meeting, it is advantageous for the Village to obtain a loan for the balance, primarily so that it keeps itself (Water Department) in a good cashflow position. We waited until bids were opened so we had a specific amount. I am communicating with RCAP, who can prepare an application to OWDA at no cost to the Village. But before the application is submitted, Council will need to approve applying for the OWDA Loan. Council initially approved submitting an application at its September 19th Council Meeting so the application will be up for consideration in October.
A formal ordinance will need to be passed on an emergency basis October 3rd, as discussed September 19th, to assure the application is considered.
Brewster Water Treatment Facility Filter Rehabilitation and Media Replacement Project (Filter Media Project). Work continues on the Filter Media Project. Tank #4 has now been completed. It has been flushed, and we are awaiting water samples sent for testing before it is placed back in service.
Tank #3 will be taken out of service to empty, replace internals, and to refill and place back in service before we can wrap the project up.
OPWC - Brewster Water Transmission Main Replacement Project. The Village’s OPWC application on Monday September 12th for the Brewster Water Transmission Main Replacement Project. It was turned in four (4) days early, in part because how effective and responsive CT Consultants was in getting the project/plans and some of the other attachments pulled together. Now we wait and see how it scores and where we rank. 
OPWC Park Drive Phase 1. The project continues to be reviewed for a rebid later this year for a 2023 start.I will keep Council informed.
Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District – Debris Removal Grant. The Village was successful in obtaining 90% Debris Removal Grant (DRP) from the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. The grant is for $5,220. The Village 10% match ($580) will come from the Tree Fund. I will get the contractor started as soon as possible.
AMPT Second Transmission Line. On Friday August 19thAMPT presented the Brewster supplemental solution at the PJM stakeholder process meeting this afternoon. There were no questions from stakeholders. AMPT (and Brewster) will now be waiting for PJM to perform their initial “Do No Harm” review. Once that is completed PJM will provide AMPT (and Brewster) a supplemental project number and then officially post this into our Local Plan. AMPT will keep the Village posted when the project gets to that point. AMPT indicates that they expect PJM to complete their review process sometime next month.
AMPT – Amendment (Extension) of Date in Purchase Agreement. The Ordinance Council adopted amending our agreement with AMPT to sell Brewster’s Transmission that extends the date for the ability on Brewster’s part to buy back the transmission line should a second transmission feed not be established from December 31, 2024 to December 31, 2026 has been forwarded to AMPT.
Electric Department – Substation Maintenance. GPD on the Village’s behalf solicited inform bids for maintenance on Brewster’s Substation. The items were split (as were the quotes) between 69kV items (AMPT) and 12kV items (Village). While individually both items were under the Village’s $50,000 threshold (the amount that require the Village to formally bid), combined they exceeded that amount. After consultation with Law Director Anthony, it has been decided to proceed with the Village contracting directly with UIS (opening a Purchase Order) for its “share” ($40,650) and AMPT contracting directly with UIS (opening a Purchase Order) for its “share” ($23,800).
The Village with assistance from GPD will supervise the maintenance on behalf of the Village and AMPT, and then bill AMPT for the portion attributable to the 69kV items.
While the Village amount is within my ability to open a purchase Order (contract for), I would appreciate Council validating this approach by motion.
Electric Department – Potential Battery Storage Project. The Village staff (the Mayor, Electric Superintendent Ryan Swan, LinemanMike Radich, and I) together with Dwight Niederkofler met with representatives of Convergent Energy on Thursday September 29th to discuss a potential Battery Storage Project that will help the Village peak shave and thereby reduce electric costs.
Briefly, peak shaving involves managing and/or reducing consumption during peak energy usage in the ATSI/PJM distribution areas to reduce the Villages costs. Peak shaving attempts to lower short-term demand spikes to lower/smooth out peak loads, to in turn reduce the overall cost of demand charges and transmission charges. Our Solar Project/Participation is one way to peak shave. Another is battery energy storage, storing energy at lower demand/costs and releasing it back into our system at projected peak times. A fuller explanation is below.
The proposed project, like when AMP/AMPT was discussing purchasing our transmission line and other assets, the Village will ultimately end up preparing a specification so that the project (and in this case the potential lease with an associated PPA) could be put out to bid. The proposed project anticipates utilizing the old substation on Chestnut, and would be similar to the Solar Project where the Village has no investment and “simply” agrees to purchase a fixed number amount of power at a fixed number of times per year to hopefully time those purchases so that it reduces the Village’s 1CP and 5CP Peaks, reducing our costs. Preliminary projections show a savings between $5 million and $7 million over 20 years.
So, based on the meeting, I believe that in the near future a preliminary Public Utilities Committee Meeting should be scheduled to begin going over this potential project.
Electric Building. After meeting with our engineer for the Electric Building (EA Associates), there is an agreement on the scope for revising the specifications prior to rebidding the Electric Building. The revised scope will include (but ultimately may not be limited to) the following tasks/revisions to the plans and contract documents to re-bid the Electric Building:
  • Ensure “or equal” language is included and clear throughout the specifications and plans so the contractor is aware of the option to submit alternative items of material for approval.
  • Indicate items/materials that the village will procure in advance and the contractor will only be responsible for installation (overhead doors, wiring, etc.).
  • Allow contractor to extend completion date if contractor can show a hardship in obtaining an item/material. Set limitation on timeframe for contractor to complete item of work once the item/material is procured.
  • Allow an alternate pole building structure.
  • Change interior door specifications from metal to wood doors and eliminate closers on doors.
  • Change window specification from aluminum to vinyl.
  • Change siding specification from standing seam to metal panel.
  • Change railing specification from prefabricated metal to wooden.
  • Indicate parking area to be performed by village. Contractor will still perform work for reinforced concrete apron and ADA compliant parking space.
  • Indicate water service to be performed by village to close proximity of building where the contractor can tie into service.
  • Re-evaluate/reduce size of waterline entering the building. Limits of contractor’s work and village work clearly defined on plan.
  • Indicate sanitary sewer to be performed by the village to close proximity of building where contractor can tie into sewer. Grease trap will be installed by contractor and limits of contractor’s work and village work clearly defined on plan.
  • Include plumbing plan/schematic. Investigate plastic/cross linked polyethylene (PEX) type materials instead of copper.
  • Change electrical plan from 3-phase to single phase. This will require changing from one large air conditioning unit to four smaller units (4 ton or less). This will also eliminate the need for installation of economizers.
  • Change electrical panel from northeast corner of building to northwest corner of building and show service entrance at northwest corner of building. Village will run service to building.
  • Eliminate standby generator and provide generator plug for future installation of generator instead.
  • Eliminate electric cord reels in each bay.
Council has approved the change order for EA, and EA is in the process of revising the specifications. EA has provided updated plans for the HVAC that addresses some of the items that can reduce the cost while maintaining functionality.
Natural Gas Aggregation Program. A price was struck at $0.854/Ccf for the first 24-months of our term starting this October.
The main thing to remember is that residents have the ability to opt out!
Residents who do not wish to wait to participate in the Village’s Natural Gas Aggregation Program have the option to choose their own supplier via PUCO, which has and will continue to have a number of suppliers on their Apples-to-Apples chart with a wide variety of costs, terms, and fees OR stay with Columbia Gas.
Wages – Employee Compensation Committee Recommendation. As set forth in Ordinance 93-2017, the Employee Compensation Committee has researched and reviewed employee compensation and is providing Council with a recommendation prior to September 30th. It is a three (3) year recommendation for 2023 through 2025. The “minimum” annual increase is 2.75%. Like 2017 the three (3) year recommendation in 2017 for 2018 through 2020, it is based on comparable wages for similar job descriptions/duties, some increases vary from that base. The recommendations of the Employee Compensation Committee are made with the intent to be able to retain and attract qualified personnel for the foreseeable future.
The “final” version of the wage ordinance is attached, based on the Employee Compensation Committee Meetings and research. The recommendations were reviewed to assure that they can be supported within the projected Budgets of each Village Department. Kris has verified we can afford the increases.
There is also a companion piece, which is a revision of 3.18 OEPA Certification Ordinance, which is attached (the policy, not the ordinance). Council will be requested to amend the ordinance adopting 3.18 OEPA Certification Incentives that also change annually, rather than are fixed as has been past practice.
Both are being submitted to be passed on a non-emergency basis, as there is ample time for three (3) readings and the 30 days after passage between now and January.
I am suggesting that a Committee Meeting(s) be called to go over the details behind each of the recommendations.
You will note that the Fire Department is not included. This is because the rate structure being considered for the Fire Department is a radical change from the existing pay structure, that will include a new Fire/EMS Certification Employee Handbook Section just for Fire. There are still steps that need to be taken in this regard, including a meeting with the Officers. Since it is still a work in progress, a separate Ordinance(s) will be submitted once the officer’s meeting is held.
Safe Routes to Schools Project – Middle & Elementary Schools. The Safe Routes to Schools Path is substantially completed. Some checklist items remain. A walk through should be scheduled soon.
Finally, as a reminder, the construction has been completely funded with Safe Routes to Schools grants: It is “official.” The construction costs are to be paid from our Safe Routes to Schools Grants, which have been:
  • $150,000
  • $106,000 initial projected shortfall between original grant and estimated cost
  • $50,000 second projected shortfall between original grant and estimated cost
  • $20,000 to cover shortfall between grants and low bidder
  • $326,000 total.
Storm Drainage Projects. The current list of storm sewer projects in their priority order, with updates on their status:
1.       Catch basin on Tuscarawas (sump pump). COMPLETED except for patching.
  1. Elton. Storm sewer failure. COMPLETED except for restoration
  2. Corner of Needham & Harriman – catch basin collapse
  3. Dartmouth/Amherst relief line. Easement has been signed. Work to start when it can be scheduled.
  4. East end of 1st Street SE. Will have to coordinate with US Army Corps of Engineers.
  5. Open ditch east of Mohican. We are consulting with Stark County Soil & Water.
  6. Drainage from Harmon west of 264 Harmon. Survey needs to be completed
  7. Drainage on north side of 7th west of Baymere.
These are not necessarily on a first come/first serve basis but based on their criticality and/or ability to fit into the schedule. We are also looking to repair deteriorated catch basins, so if any Council person is aware of any, please let me know. Also, if there are any storm drainage projects/issues not on this list please let me know.
Zoning Board of Appeals and Planning Commission. A joint meeting of the Brewster Planning Commission and the Brewster Village Zoning Board of Appeals was held on Thursday September 22nd, 2022 at 7:00 pm in Council Chambers at Brewster Village Hall at 302 South Wabash Avenue.
The Zoning Board of Appeals considered a request for a variance(s) being requested for parcel 7001763, located at 148 1st Street SE. The property is zoned R-3 and is owned by George M Wiles. The variance(s) are to allowing a garage to be built outside the required setbacks and for maximum lot coverage and minimum open space requirements. The variance(s) were from Brewster Codified Ordinance § 153.083 YARD REQUIREMENTS which provides in relevant part
“Minimum rear yard depth 30 feet” and “Minimum side yard width 8 feet” in an R-3 District. The applicant is asking for the structure to be zero feet from the side lot line, with authorization of the property owner on that side. The applicant is also asking for a variance from the 30-foot rear setback to allow the garage to be approximately 5 feet from the rear property line.
In addition, the variance(s) were considered from Brewster Codified Ordinance § 153.082 LOT REQUIREMENTS, which provides in relevant part
“(D) Minimum usable open space. At least 30% of the actual lot area shall be devoted to useable open space” and “(E) Maximum lot coverage. Twenty-five percent.” Currently the lot has approximately 31% lot coverage, and with the addition it would increase to over 37 % lot coverage.
The variances were granted.
Brewster Property – South Route 93. As a follow-up of sorts to clearing the debris from the Sugar Creek east of the bridge on Route 93. It has been observed that there is a lot of activity:
  1. Vehicles. There has been a lot of vehicle traffic all the way down to the bank. The PD has been made aware of this traffic and has been monitoring it. Concern about a vehicle potentially going too close and ending up in the Sugar Creek. There is now a “turn-around” near the bank. I have attached photos from the Stark County Auditor’s website, that not only show a car, but one is marked up to show where the new turn-around is.
  1. Drinking. There have been sightings of beer cans at the bank of the Sugar Creek, and farther down the creek bank along what was a game trail but now has heavier use.
  1. Fire pit - someone has dug out a fire pit.
  1. Illegal turtle snags. A couple of years ago when we had our local ODNR Ranger at this location, he found a number of illegal turtle snags. Turtle snags are lines tied off somewhere up the bank (trees) with a baited hook at the end in the water. The law for Turtle snags is:
Rule 1501:31-13-02 | Fishing methods other than angling; areas affected.
(D) Set or bank lines
(1) Set or bank lines may be used to take fish or turtles only as herein provided.
(2) It shall be unlawful for any person to set, use, or maintain in excess of fifty set or bank lines, or attach more than one single hook to any one line. Treble hooks are unlawful.
(3) It shall be unlawful for any person to set, use, or maintain a set or bank line from a dock, wharf, pier, boat, dam or artificially constructed retaining wall, or attach such lines to fishing rods or fishing poles.
(4) It shall be unlawful for any person to set, use, or maintain a set or bank line which is attached to any stake placed or present in or under the water.
(5) It shall be unlawful for any person to set, use, or maintain more than six set or banklines in all public waters of the state of Ohio less than seven hundred surface acres. Provided further, it shall be unlawful to use a treble hook on any set or bankline.
(6) It shall be unlawful for any person to fail to inspect or maintain their set or banklines once every twenty-four-hour period.
(7) It shall be unlawful for any person to leave any part of a set or bankline which was brought to the site upon completion of use.
(8) It shall be unlawful for any person to set, use, or maintain set or banklines unless they have attached thereto a durable waterproof tag bearing the name and mailing address of the user in English letters or the unique division of wildlife customer identification number of the user legible at all times.
(9) It shall be unlawful for any person to disturb or molest a legally placed set or bankline of another without permission from the set or bankline owner or user.
After the debris is removed from the Sugar Creek, there will be more of the bank on Village property accessible. Certainly, foot traffic and fishing would be permissible, with limitations.
So, to start to address these issues we will put up a gate to restrict vehicular traffic past the guardrail. It will still allow foot traffic.
I suggest we have a Building, Parks, and Grounds Meeting to allow continued fishing but to also establish reasonable limitations, such as:
  • No access between sunset and sunrise, as other “parks”
  • No vehicular traffic beyond a specific point
  • No digging
  • No fires
  • No “bank lines”
  • No hunting
  • No foot traffic beyond a certain point
These are based on preliminary discussions with the Mayor and Police Chief.
  1. Christmas in the Village meeting will be November 3, 2022 in Village Hall at 10:00 AM. 
  2. Mayor Hawk is recommending the appointment of Cody Owens be approve to week shifts.  Cody had all the new hire requirements fulfilled within the last six-months and will not need to be retested.  It was stated that Cody may want to take paramedic training.
  1. September month-to-date and year-to-date financials were placed in Council’s mailboxes.
  2. I am requesting for Council to review and sign the check register for this set of bills.
  3. The renewal numbers for the liability insurance are in.  This is the third and final year of our contract.  The renewal is $65,700.  The breakdown was emailed to Council on Friday.
  4. There will be free flu shots on October 11th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Village Hall through Marc’s Pharmacy.
  5. There will be an “Ohio Ethics Law 2022: Watching our Steps” class on Thursday, November 3rd at 10:00 am in the Brewster Community Room.  Please RSVP by October 15th by contacting me at 330-767-4214.  This is recommended for all elected officials and public employees.  This is a free class and other local communities are invited to attend.
  6. The FOPA #40 is asking for a donation for Massillon Cops for Kids 2022.  Council Member Godwin reached out to the requester and was told this is for “Shop with a Cop”’.
  7. I will be attending the Ohio Association of Public Treasurers Annual Conference for the rest of the week.
