- Ordinance 398-19 which would approve a special use permit for a 30-bed residential drug and alcohol treatment center at 3132 Secor Road. The applicant, Empowered for Excellence, is requesting the permit to expand upon an existing non-residential facility currently operating on the site.
- Two ordinances that would approve Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz’s nominees for terms on the Electrical Board of Control. Ordinance 428-19 would re-appoint Don Turner, David Desjardins, Josh Abernathy, and Raymond Struffolino for three-year terms, and Ordinance 429-19 would appoint John Ziegelhofer for a three-year term.
- Ordinance 434-19 which would change the name of Toledo Express Airport to the Eugene F. Kranz Toledo Express Airport. Kranz most notably served as flight director for both the Apollo 11 mission which landed the first man on the Moon, and for the Apollo 13 mission during which the crew was safely returned to Earth following an onboard explosion.
Two ordinances regarding lead-safe housing will likely be held until Council’s October 1 voting session:
- Ordinance 381-19 would repeal the city’s current lead law and enact a new one designating the Department of Neighborhoods & Business Development, instead of the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department, as the enforcing entity. It would also expand residential rental properties included in enforcement to those with one or more units, instead of only those with up to four units.
- Ordinance 382-19 would approve $75,000 to create the position of Assistant City Auditor to support the lead-safe program. The position would be responsible for seeking and monitoring grants to provide funding for a “lead conference”, lead test kits, education, and marketing.
Ordinance 413-19, which would expand the area around a subject property in which property owners are required to be sent mailed notices pertaining to zoning proposals, is also expected to be held until October 1. The ordinance would require that notices be mailed to owners of property within one-quarter mile radius of the subset property. Currently notices are only required to be mailed to owners of property abutting or directly across the street from the subject property.
A hearing before Council’s Neighborhoods, Community Development & Health Committee is scheduled prior to the voting session at 2:30 p.m. to review Ordinance 412-19, which would establish a point system against responsible parties of commercial property for code violations. Those assessed 12 or more points in a year period, or 18 in a two-year period, would be prohibited from commercial use of the property.
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.
