ORDINANCE NO. 24-18: BY: JOHN B. SHEPHERD
AN EMERGENCY ORDINANCE AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR AND SAFETY SERVICE DIRECTOR TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT WITH THE SHELLY COMPANY FOR THE 2018/2019 DETROIT ROAD/WOOSTER ROAD OHIO DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (ODOT) RESURFACING PROJECT IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $3,171,296.66
Mr. Shepherd said that this is the beginning phase of the Wooster Road/Detroit Road repaving project. The City of Rocky River will be paying $1.8 million, ODOT $1.28 million and NOACA $88,000. The Special Meeting was called primarily for this ordinance so it could be read for a third time at the next Legislative Meeting and passed so this project can begin as soon as school is out for the summer. Detroit Road, in front of the high school, will then be finished prior to the start of school in August.
ORDINANCE NO. 25-18 BY: THOMAS J. HUNT

Mr. Shepherd said that this is an annual ordinance. The city has had a good experience participating in the ODOT Salt Purchasing Cooperative. The city received late notice on this and this needs to be passed by May 14th. Mr. Shepherd will be asking for a rules suspension at next Monday’s meeting so this can be passed as needed by ODOT. Mr. Shepherd explained that the city needs to buy a maximum of 110% of 4,200 tons and a minimum of 90% of 4,200 tons. The city has 800 tons of salt left in the salt barn and the average usage is between 4,000–4,500 tons.
