Director Meyer presents the new home page and states the website will be mobile friendly to include the dashboard. 2. City Boards Appointments City Attorney Christina Wenko states the city has two members normally sit on the commission that are in the ETZ. This makes sure that the commission is balanced out. There is discussion to expand the P&Z board. She states if the ETZ is expanded there will be a requirement of three commissioners from the ETZ to be on the P&Z board. She states the City commission would make the decision to expand membership and deal with the appointments. Commissioner Jason Fridrich states if the city expands the ETZ to three members to include county commissioners it would be more than 3. There would need to be 2 from the ETZ. Planning Director Walter Hadley states Stark County has been soliciting for the position. City/County Planner Steven Josephson states Stark County has been recruiting for a replacement for the county P&Z. He states he is not sure if the county is aware that Mr. Kordonowy is leaving. Mr. Josephson will have the conversation with the county tomorrow. City Attorney Christina Wenko states the city does make the appointment before you officially expand the commission. She feels that making the appointments outside of the tolerance of what is being allowed and then seek expansion of the board. Ms. Wenko states by statute there needs to be 3 persons residing outside of the city limits with a population of 25,000 or more. There must be 3 from the ETZ, 3 persons whom do not live in the city limits. She feels it would be prudent to table the appointments until the expansion. Commissioner Jason Fridrich states the city has one spot to fill tonight and would like to appoint someone tonight. President Scott Decker states there is a conflict of interest with Ms. Decker applying for the Planning and Zoning commissioner therefore he turns over the gavel to Vice President Jason Fridrich. Ms. Valerie Decker introduces herself to the Commission. She has been a city of Dickinson resident for 20 years and works at Bravera Bank.
