January 18, 2010: Public Lands and Buildings Committee

The Public Lands & Buildings Committee met on Monday, January 18th, 2010 at 7:00 P.M. Present were Committee members Councilman Frey, Councilman Ward and Councilman Marko. Also present were Councilman Fisher, Councilman Schlessel, Councilman Gambetese, Mayor Cicero, Finance Director Mary Kovalchik and Pool Director Julie David.
The meeting was called to discuss Pool Admission Fees for the 2010 Pool season. Committee Chairman, Councilman Frey provided a brief review of the past two years of Pool Fees and highlighted the Fee structure put in place last year with Ordinance 2009-17. Councilman Frey recommended to the Committee that all Fees remain unchanged from last years and noted that the Finance Director had some suggestions for minor changes.
The committee did discuss the Fee for the Swim Team and Pool Director Julie David suggested the fee should go up to be more in line with the combined three sessions of the Learn to Swim program. The recommendation was made to increase the fee from $30.00 to $50 or $60. The committee discussed this and settled on an increase to $45.00.
Finance Director Mary Kovalchik mentioned that Pool Passes would be re-issued this year with the first names removed for safety reasons. She stated that all the pictures from last year where saved so passes could be re-issued without the need for the entire family to return to City Hall for new pictures.
The committee then discussed changing the name of the "Babysitter" Pass to something else because some people complained about the Babysitter title. The committee kicked around a few options and decided to leave the name the same.
At the recommendation of the Finance Director the committee decided to remove the School District language and just leave it as non-resident. This changed was to clean up the language in the Ordinance and had no affect on the Fee Structure.
The Committee also decided to remove the $2 daily reciprocity admission fee for South Euclid residents and made all daily admissions $5. The above mentioned changes where put to a vote of the committee and past unanimously.
With no further business, the meeting adjourned at 7:26 P.M.
Respectfully submitted,
David A. Frey, Chairman
