C. 2021 Wage Scale Adoption
City Administrator Brian Winningham presents the 2021 wage scale resolution. This resolution is pursuant to the Dickinson city budget ordinance. This resolution would allow the City to make certain changes to the employee compensation. He states this was previously brought forward, the wage study that commission asked for last year. The wage study has been completed and staff has worked in relation to the study outcome. This was to do no harm to employees to lower pay and to adopt a scale that states in 2020 there was a 4% increase. City Administrator Winningham has four items within the resolution which is the market base general government wage scale, market base police, market base fire and general classification for each position for where they are on the general scale. The numbers provided in the excel spreadsheet what the city bill would be in order to adopt to correct this wage scale for the employees. City Administrator Winningham states that the cost to the city would be $223,000 if it starts in January or approximately $180,000 if the increase comes on 5/1/2021. This increase of $223,000 would include the back pay for active employees as of the date of 1/1/2021. Administrator Winningham states it would be a journal entry as of 1/1/2021 if this is what the Commission chooses.
President Scott Decker states the Commission can decide whether to begin the increase on 5/1/2021 or retro it back to 1/1/2021.
Commissioner Jason Fridrich has no comments in regards to the wage study. He is wondering if this will be backdated to 1/1/2021.
City Administrator Brian Winningham states the original amount of $223,000 was the whole impact for the entire year and this would include back pay for employees that were hired in 2020. Administrator Winning states that back pay that is the option. He is not asking that in the resolution but that is the expectation in the city’s impact. The impact to the city is shown in the excel spreadsheets.
Commissioner Suzi Sobolik questions if back pay is common for a government entity.
City Administrator Brian Winningham states he is not sure if it is common but it is a practice that is authorized in the budget year to make this amendment based on this ordinance. The city does from time to time come forward to have budget changes. He is not sure if it is a common practice. He states it would make sense to go back to 1/1 but can start at any point.
Commissioner John Odermann states this has been a long trip and this is a step in the right direction. Commissioner Odermann thanks everyone who had a hand in putting this together.
MOTION BY: John Odermann SECONDED BY: Suzi Sobolik
Adopt Resolution 09-2021 to adopt the new pay scale retro back to 1/1/2021.

1. Reports:
Monthly Report
Fire Chief Jeremy Presnell presents the monthly Fire Department report which shows 55 calls for services; 202 calls for the year which is a 26% increase from 2020. Most calls are EMS calls along with alarm activation, false calls. Fire Station 1 attends to the calls that happen south of the freeway and their response time is 6 minutes which is slightly over the benchmark. The north Fire Station attends to all calls north of the freeway which is 7.5 minutes which shows a slight delay. Fire Chief Presnell states the busiest days per week are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and the majority of calls are between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Chief Presnell states there have been 600 hours of training for March which equal to about 26 hours per member. The Dickinson Fire Department is a Class 3 ISO rating. Chief Presnell states the fire department had helped with the fire located just south of town on Saturday. There have been 21 calls already for April. He states the volunteers are taxed a little bit. He states they have been responding to fires and they are happy to attend. Chief Presnell discusses the current burn ban in Stark County and would like to get more information out on the back yard fires, people cleaning yards and burning leaves.
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger does inform people on Facebook, Twitter and other sources. He states the Police Department has zero tolerance for open burns and utilizing fireworks. He states charcoal or open fire in back yards is a Class B misdemeanor.
President Scott Decker states kudos for the Hero Ball. President Decker also discusses the need for fire protection for personnel helping in wildfires. He feels the equipment used to fight fires in the city and fires in the county are quite different and feels different equipment is needed.
Fire Chief Jeremy Presnell states the City’s Fire Department does lack the shirts and lighter helmets’ as they are moving so fast. Grass fires are quite different then fighting house fires. He states the apparatuses to fight grass fires are ones that drive and pump at the same time.
Commissioner John Odermann discusses back yard fires and hopes citizens do not do anything stupid at this time. Also reminds people not to throw cigarettes out of car windows as this can burn thousands of acres. Commissioner Odermann states don’t set fires and pray for rain.
B. Police Department
1. Body Camera Purchase
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger presents the request of body cameras for the Dickinson Police Department. He states he has researched this nationwide and feels this is the time to move forward with the project. The body cameras are officer issued, activated by officers and captures approximately of what the officer sees and hears. He states the body cameras may improve police accountability and to protect officers from false accusations of misconduct. He discusses the pros and cons of the body cameras. He provides information in regards to the purchasing of the body cameras. Police Chief Dassinger states there is no federal or state requirements at this time.
City Attorney Christina Wenko states the regulations vary from state to state and at this time there are 16 states that have surveillance intersection cameras. There is no specific rules at this time.
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger formed a committee and the committee made the final recommendation of AXON Body 3 for cameras.
City Attorney Christina Wenko fully supports Chief Dassinger in this expenditure. She states unfortunately law enforcement is becoming technically driven and advance to go with the flow and speed. They are expected to become the norm. She feels it is better to get officers on board and to train them as it will be a much easier transition now instead of being thrust into it later on.
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger states the company would replace the cameras twice in the five year period. He states there are multiple mounting options along with excellent customer service. He states there are options for live viewing. The two cost methods would be a five year plan for 35 body cameras and license with 8 admin licenses; 3 docking station and 1 cloud storage. Option number 2 is a lump sum for 5 years of $217,686.29. Chief Dassinger states the asset forfeiture and Cares Law Enforcement Fund has a little over $3.1 million dollars.
City Administrator Brian Winningham states the city could use Cares Act Dollars and would be more inclined to pay for it outright. These funds can be used for the body cameras.
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger states the life expectancy for these cameras are 3 years and that is what the replacement is within the five year cycle. As technology improvement and updates would be made you would get the most updated camera. At the end of five years the City would look to contact for the next 10 years.
Commissioner John Odermann thanks Police Chief Dassinger for the presentation. He is concerned of the 1 terabyte of storage.
Police Chief Dustin Dassinger states he has discussed this storage with the IT Department and the IT Department is comfortable with the amount of storage and cloud storage and has no concerns at this time.
MOTION BY: John Odermann SECONDED BY: Suzi Sobolik
Approve the purchase of body cameras for the Police Department and to pay for them out of the Cares Act with a lump sum.
DISPOSITION: Roll call vote…Aye 5, Nay 0, Absent 0Motion declared duly passed
5.ENGINEERING
A. Sidewalk Improvement District Resolution
Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik presents the Sidewalk Improvement District allows the city to institute a mechanism to allow citizens to make improvements to sidewalks, curbs, gutters and driveways, which are within the right-of-way, through a voluntary special assessment process, allowing citizens to make said improvements and have the cost assessed against the improved parcel. Ms. Marshik states the assessments will be for 5-years at 2.6% interest. The bid opening for the project is anticipated to be held April 28, 2021.
The city engineering staff recommends approval of Special Improvement District.
Commissioner John Odermann questions why the city charges interest. If the city is paying for these products on the front end and special the cost to the citizens. What does it pay for? Why is the City charging interest?
Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states this is to recoup some of the administrative funds.
Commissioner John Odermann states if the project is paid for what are the administrative costs are paid for.
City Administrator Brian Winningham states the interest rate is set just hovers on the Treasury bill. The interest rate can be negotiated. This is five year term. This gives us a low rate above what is above and beyond normal day to day operations so there are some limited complexity even though we go out and bid this project. The City does the investigative work. Addition to the normal city government workers positions. It probably costs the city more than the 2.6%. The cost also covers the city’s cost. Some of the money we are funding upfront. This is that we are paying out first for the project. To recoup some of the money we have provided for the project, essentially a loan. Other municipalities around the state have been more aggressive in special assessments. Should have more transparent answers and citizens are not paying too much for the assessment.
If the City is lumping all engineer cost into the proceed but if this is over the administrative cost, I think our constituents would like a 1 to 1 if at all possible. I do not think this is a situation in this situation this is where the city is allowed to approach to have my sidewalkassessed. In a different program we are going to assess you over this term and they are going to pay interest. Constituent money that they can afford that that is nothing they are going to buck at. If someone does not have the money they will not have the money to pay for the sidewalk to be fixed.
President Scott Decker states did we not allow them 10 years in last year’s project.
Commissioner John Odermann remembers that is 10 years assessment.
Commissioner Suzi Sobolik states this special assessment district is different than the district was created.
Interim City Engineer Loretta Marshik states this is a five year and it is voluntary and the other special district that we created then it is for 10 years.
Commissioner John Odermann states if the citizen voluntarily coming to city to fix sidewalk don’t have much of an issue but if you tell them that we are going to do their sidewalk.

C.Generator Maintenance Agreement
Public Works Director Gary Zuroff presents generator maintenance agreements. First agreement is for the major generator and the second one is for smaller generators for lift stations. He states there are 31 generators for the annual service agreement. Included load banking that we want to get started on once every three years annually for the public safety center. The City received bids from multiple vendors. Our recommendation is to go with Cummins for the three year contract for a total of approximately $100,000. We wanted to have a three year agreement to get the best pricing. We wanted to do these as some of the generators are fairly large and need service agreements. Public Works Director Zuroff states that we need to look at the replacement schedule as the generators are quite new but we need to start looking at the replacement schedule. The public safety center will do load testing on them and if there are issues then we would need to replace them. Director Zuroff feels the units are in fleet software so we will look at replacement plan. Mostly all units for lift stations are backup generators. He states load bank testing is how you start the generator and see how much of a load on it then it shows how much of the load that it can hold of the electricity. To acquire as much power out of the generator as can.
Mr. Dave Clem, Operations Manager, states that load bank test all connections from generator into the building test the lines so that they meet the standard. It is 36 months for every generator in city except for public safety center.
MOTION BY: Suzi Sobolik SECONDED BY: John Odermann
Approve the generator maintenance agreements.
DISPOSITION:Roll call vote…Aye 5, Nay 0, Absent 0
Motion declared duly passed
D. Mausoleum Presentation
Public Works Director Gary Zuroff state the mausoleum has been reaching capacity. Niches have been filling up faster than a regular cemetery burial. GT Architect will give a presentation on a new mausoleum and the City is looking for a final design with input to move forward in the construction in 2022.
GT Architect Brian Gregoire presents the graphics, masterplan, mausoleum and site. Mr. Gregoire states the mausoleum was built in 1990 and has 432 crypts and niches. The crypt is where the casket lies while a niche has an ern in it. Most of the crypts are internal and exterior while niches are all interior. At this time there is 4 acres of property so there is a lot of room for future construction. He states they are also looking at putting in doubles and singles.
GT Architect Alec Johnson states there are no maintenance rooms of any kind in the present mausoleum and no interior niches for erns.
Mr. Brian Gregoire has been talking with staff and funeral homes to mirror the existing mausoleum. The new one would be left or north side of the original. The center of the mausoleums would be for niches which would give additional spaces. The parking lot would be placed on the east side for greater access for funerals and to also help people when they want to visit during inclement weather. The east parking lot would allow people to stay in their vehicles to view. Also this parking lot would be the trailhead to the community trail. During research they have found out where the original grant came from. Mr. Gregoire states the proposed mausoleum would have the same footprint but with fewer niches and more crypts. They would also like to place a janitorial room so when maintenance staff comes to do maintenance this would allow them to store equipment onsite and to also keep the electrical panel out of view.
Mr. Alec Johnson states the demand for niches or ern space is becoming greater as time passes along. He states 40% chose to take the cremation route. It is not a greater demand for niches. At this time there are 9 niche spots in the existing mausoleum and 18 crypts left open. Mr. Johnson states they have put together a preliminary cost estimate by reaching out to the local contractors to get pricing. He feels the City could recoup the money through the addition by selling crypts or niches.
Mr. Brian Gregoire states people prefer the middle section and this is generally the most expensive area. He states upper and lower ones are not that expensive however, interior ones are most expensive.
Public Works Director Gary Zuroff states there are niche parks and a lot of variety in the creation and feels the city could recoup their money over time. Mr. Zuroff asks for Commission input.
Commissioner Suzy Sobolik does like the north building and to go from the current parking lot is a long walk. She feels this new design does look nice.
Mr. Brian Gregoire states most churches own mausoleums but having the City own this mausoleum is more of a non-denominational. He states they have put a great deal of work into getting the amount of data and exploration. He feels there has been an increase in cremations during the pandemic. He feels this could be phased in.
Commissioner John Odermann really does like the concept of mirroring and looking like the existing mausoleum. The only concern is the parking lot and if they put the new parking lot in he is concerned about having the ability to put a 3rd or 4th mausoleum in the space.
Mr. Brian Gregoire states there could be another mausoleum added to the north of the trees.
President Scott Decker would like to approach the veterans group in regards to the veteran cemetery.
Public Works Director Gary Zuroff states he would like to move forwards with the design and for construction in 2022. If this direction looks good possibly go forward to see the cost.
Todd Fischer whom ran the numbers today and there are 144 niches for cremation originally and there are 9 left. He states there were 22 crypts and now there are only 41 left. He has met with Stevenson’s Funeral Home and they are asking for the city to do something soon otherwise they are planning on creating their own. This is becoming more and more popular. He states the City is so cheap right now in the purchase that is cheaper than doing a regular burial.
