Ken Henson, 119 Fourth Avenue, asked when the developers are going to fix his property. City Adm. Giffen noted the original offer from the developer is still on the table. Mr. Henson said he has black mold, his drains are stopped up and he feels the road by his house is causing the problems. City Adm. Giffen reported Mr. Henson’s downspout is broken. Mr. Henson also noted at times water is a foot high in his basement. This has damaged his furnace. City Adm. Giffen advised the developers are at the meeting tonight and Mr. Henson can talk with them later.
Lara Stansbury, 213 Lindsey Street, requested approval to close the street in front of the First Baptist Church, Third Avenue, on August 13 from 4:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The First Baptist Church would like to block off the street in front of the church for a block party. Motion by Member Burns, seconded by Member Baker to approve this request. Motion carried-so ordered.
Jim Reed, Architect, and Brendon Sullivan, Developer, addressed council asking for 20’ behind the lots that are known as the transitional site. There was always a plan to expand further back to accommodate the river flats. They will work with the city to spear head access to a trail. This would be permanent. Mr. Sullivan said they would also help with the grading issues. City Adm. Giffen said the city would still have plenty of room for the trail. KZF has seen the design and they would also have to assure the city that there is room for the trail. The engineer for KZF and the engineer for the developer would work together. Mr. Sullivan feels this will really enhance this site. This will include public parking. It will be really good for the community. Motion by Member Volter, seconded by Member Burns, to grant the additional 20’ to the developer contingent on the fact that we get it in writing from their engineer and KZF’s engineer that the trail will work in that configuration. Comments: Mr. Reed would like to add that they have permission to join the lots. There are five lots involved. We are going to change the lot boundary lines. They won’t be the same parcel numbers that they are right now. This will also allow for more of a retaining wall. This will be paid for by the developer as well as the retaining wall.

Motion carried—so ordered.
Motion by Member Volter, seconded by Member Neary that we grant the consolidation of the five lots to one configuration. Comments: Mr. Sullivan said there are actually seven lots involved, lots 1 -7. Member Volter amended his motion from five lots to seven lots and Member Neary agreed to amend his second. Motion carried—so ordered.
Member Volter would like the developers to send a brief summary to council and administration on a quarterly basis.
Mr. Sullivan thanked Mayor Boruske and City Adm. Giffen for all of their help. A lot of this would not have happened without their help. It will be about three months before all of our financing is approved. Member Volter asked for assistance with playground equipment at the Vine Street Park. Mr. Sullivan agreed he will help with the playground equipment.
Motion by Member Baker, seconded by Member Haas to approve the minutes as received from the June 6, 2017 and June 20, 2017 meeting. Motion carried—so ordered.

Department Head’s Report:
Bob Yoder, Main Street Manager, passed out an updated CCAP report. Body of Art Tattoo has applied for a sign permit and will receive the rental abatement next month. The city has had four ribbon cuttings so far this year, and two food truck Thursday events at the Town Center. The next food truck will be Dayton’s own Street Chef Brigade. The city passed the RIJJ zoning ordinance change. Several business owners are moving forward on planning, etc. We have two projects up for the Duke Energy Planning Grant. Three Nano grants were award, Dayton High School Band will have a concert at the Town Center, a concert will be held at The Lodge, and Lincoln School will put a mural on their foundation facing the park. The next Main Street Meeting is Aug. 25 at 7:00 p.m.
Lt. Boyers, FDBD, reported everyone should have a copy of Chief Auteri’s report. The FDBD has been awarded a $456,191 FEMA grant for the purchase of a new pumper truck to replace its current 1996 Ferrara pumper. The Fire Department is blessed to have Karen Strickley on staff. Each city (Dayton/Bellevue) will need to pay around $11,400.00 to complete the cost of the new truck. Dayton had a structure fire on June 19 at 635 Brooklyn Ave. The house was a total loss. We would like to commend the Police for all of their help. Member Burns thanked Karen Strickley for a fantastic job in securing this grant. The extra money for the truck will come from the Fire Department equipment fund.
David Halfhill, Police Chief, submitted a copy of his report. Chief Halfhill also thanked Karen Strickley for her help with grants in the Police Department. Thanks to Bob Yoder, Main Street Manager, for his help with the Homeland Security Camera Grant.
Bob Yoder, Main Street Manager, submitted a copy of his report.
Rich McAllister, Director of Codes, did not have anything to report. Member Baker asked about couches on porches. If you have an upholstered chair on a covered porch you may be cited. Mr. McAllister said the person was cited $250.00. Member Lynn asked about 705 Boone Street. The property has been condemned. Mr. McAllister will continue to issue citations. Member Lynn asked if the property could be taken down. Mayor Boruske advised that council can ask for a foreclosure on the property because of unpaid fines or taxes.
Member Haas asked about the Grant Park situation concerning flooding. City Adm. Giffen did receive a report on the cracks in the road on Grant Park Drive. The soil conditions are softer than they should be. City Adm. Giffen & City Att. Edge have been taking about what the next step should be. We still need information from the county. Who’s at fault, how do you fix this and who has to pay? We should have an update in a few weeks.
Member Haas also reported, when the budget was passed this year, it was said that the city had raised property taxes. This is not true. The budget increase in the tax revenue was determined by a projected increase in property values. At no point did we discuss increasing the tax rate.
Member Neary commended the Public Works Department for their work on the floodwall. Member Neary also asked about the Jamestown Pike Park. City Adm. Giffen said the conversion has been approved but they are not lifting the restriction just yet. Bob Yoder, Main Street Manager, said this was approved over a month ago. We need the approval letter.
Member Volter received a request from the residents of Riverpointe. The HOA is paying for the street lights. This is a dedicated city street. They feel the city should be paying for the street lights. There are 13 poles and the total cost for electricity is $250.00 per month. City Adm. Giffen said the street lights are part of the deed. It was never meant to be dedicated back to the city. Mayor Boruske formed a committee to review this issue. Member Volter, Member Haas and Member Lynn will report back to council at the next meeting.
Motion by Member Volter, seconded by Member Haas to adjourn. Motion carried—so ordered.
