Ordinance 144-19, aimed at improving appearance and security for off-street parking lots, is expected to be referred back to the administration. In its place, two separate proposals will be considered: Ordinance 278-19, which would create lot regulations and amend the operator license fee schedule, will likely be voted on. Ordinance 279-19, which would create an advisory committee and lot design standards, will likely be referred to the Toledo Plan Commission for further review and a hearing on June 13 at 2:00 p.m.
Also at the session, Council is expected to vote on Ordinance 294-19, which would authorize an amended Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) agreement with Troy Township, Wood County and extend the agreement’s term through 2039. The JEDD, approved for expansion by Council last year, is located south of the intersection of I-280 and State Route 23.
In addition, Council is expected to refer the following items to committee for further review:
- Ordinance 262-19, which would require an annual fire inspection permit for mobile food units with an annual permit fee of $150, will likely be referred to Council’s Public Safety & Criminal Justice Reform Committee. The permit is aimed at covering costs of state-mandated fire inspections required by recent changes to the state fire code.
- Ordinance 284-19, which would extend the city’s contract with ReCommunity for processing of single-stream recyclables to January 2022, will likely be referred for a joint hearing before Council’s Streets, Public Services & Utilities Committee and Water Quality & Sustainability Committee. Renewing for the proposed term would put the contract on the same timetable for planned development of the Lucas County Materials Recovery Facility for local processing of single-stream recyclables by 2022.
All Council meetings, including committee hearings, are held in Council Chambers on the first floor of One Government Center, located on Jackson Boulevard in downtown Toledo.
