On March 2, Mayor Richard Duffett called a special meeting of Council for an executive session where council would evaluate a public employee pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Section 121.22. Out of that special meeting came a motion to hire an outside firm with human resource qualifications to conduct an independent investigation regarding "public employees."

The motion was marked as passed in council on March 2 after being introduced by City Councilman Bruce Neff, and approved by a three-member quorum of council. The issue was brought up at the regular meeting on Wednesday, March 4 by residents who were not happy with it.

Resident Ashley Kanotz asked Neff if this was a one-time item or if it would be happening again.

Neff replied, "We're not in a position to talk about it."

Resident Frank Micchia also addressed the issue by saying, "If this is to rehash what has already been done, it has the appearance of a vendetta."

Councilman Anthony Nacarato also refused to comment on the issue.

Council President John Morvay said he could not comment because he was not in attendance at the Monday Special meeting.

In other business:

Police Chief Chuck Colucci said the school district is working well with his department and has even brought Assistant Chief Scott Weamer on board the committee to search for a new superintendent.

Council approved creating the Health Care Self Insurance Fund for 2020. City Manager Wade Calhoun said it will help the city get into a money saving consortium.

Council approved revising an Internet Auction Policy that will allow the city to use on-line auction services in specialized markets to dispose of unneeded, obsolete, or unfit property.

A motion was approved to reappoint Attorney Mark Fortunato as municipal attorney.

A motion was approved to move the April 1 council meeting to April 8 at 6 p.m. An earlier "Windsor Jedd addition" public hearing will still take place at 5:15 on April 1.

Calhoun noted the city's brush pick up will take place from April 19 to May 10.

Mayor's Court report for February saw a gross collection of $8,310.07 and after fees and mandatory pay outs, a net collection of $6,792.07 to the city.
