Councilman Piros.  ROLL CALL -  Woofter, aye; Linville, aye; Petrosky, aye; Piros, aye; Stocz, aye; Sweeney, aye; Tackett, aye.  RESOLUTION PASSED

 

RESOLUTION R-02-11 -  a resolution authorizing the Clerk of Council of the City of Cortland, Ohio to advertise for sealed bids for regular and premium grade of gasoline and oil for both bulk and pump rates for use in the City vehicles of the City of Cortland, Ohio was read and moved by Councilman Piros and seconded by Councilman Linville.

 

MAYOR -  We have done this every year and have been very unsuccessful.  I will say I have been going to the county joint effort which is being sponsored by the regional chamber.  One of the things is the county has started buying bulk gas through State Purchasing through a broker that gives them the best price from one of three regions.  Supposedly they are saving a considerable amount of money. We don't have bulk storage here at this time except a very small tank at the service garage.  The county does have bulk storage at their garage south of town but they do not have any kind of metering device in order for us to pay for what we use.  I have talked to David DeChristafaro and he said they are going to look at putting in some kind of a card system down there which might allow us to purchase our gas through them and save us some money.  How available it is going to be, like the police needing gas during the night, I can't answer those questions right now.

 

COUNCILMAN TACKETT -  Currently we get pretty much of our gas from Ainsley on the corner.

 

MAYOR -  We get gas from the Sunoco station on the corner and also diesel fuel from Ainsley Oil. 

 

COUNCILMAN TACKETT -  At one time didn't we get gas from Ainsley Oil Co.?

 

MAYOR -  We get diesel fuel there but regular gas not there.  This was to let you know that something else was going on with this topic.

 

ROLL CALL ON R-02-11 -  Petrosky, aye; Piros, aye; Stocz, aye; Sweeney, aye; Tackett, aye; Woofter, aye; Linville, aye.  RESOLUTION PASSED

 

ORDINANCE 0-01-11 -  an ordinance providing for the Council of the City of Cortland, Ohio to appropriate funds for the operation of the various funds of the City of Cortland, Ohio and its political subdivisions was read and moved by  Councilman Piros and seconded by Councilman Tackett.  A motion to suspend the rules was made by Councilman Woofter and seconded by Councilwoman Sweeney.  ROLL CALL ON SUSPENSION OR RULES -  Petrosky, aye; Piros, aye; Stocz, aye; Sweeney, aye; Tackett, aye; Woofter, aye;  Linville, aye.  ROLL CALL ON 0-01-11 -  Linville, aye; Petrosky, aye;  Piros, aye; Stocz, aye; Sweeney, aye; Tackett, aye; Woofter, aye.  ORDINANCE PASSED IN EMERGENCY

MAYOR -  We are starting to dig in the front yard here and that is good sign that we will be able to feed the water tower when spring comes.  This is one of the two pressure reduction valves that need to go in before we can fire up the water tower.

 

COUNCILWOMAN SWEENEY -  Where are the other ones going?

 

MAYOR - There is one at the south end on Mecca St. and there is one that won't be used for a while down by  Loco Amigos.  The pipe that used to go across the bridge had to be removed because of the bridge conditions.  When we rebuild the bridge and put a new pipe in, there will be another pressure reducer there.
