Council met in Regular Session at 6:00 p.m. with the following members present: Mayor Church, Councilmembers Clark, Collins, Colvin, McCabe, Nicholas, and Stalder.

 

Motion was made by Colvin, seconded by Nicholas to accept the minutes of the Regular Session on January 15, 2019, as distributed.  Motion carried.

 

Motion was made by Stalder, seconded by Nicholas to excuse Councilmember Thompson.  Motion carried.

 

Mayor Church delivered his 28th and final State of the City address.  The Mayor stated that 2018 was the most memorable year of his career.  It was the 200th birthday of the City.  The celebration took 3 years of planning.  The primary events were held for one week in June.  There were activities every day for all age groups.  There were 2 parades – one at the beginning and one at the end of the week.  A time capsule was opened. Country singer Ricky Skaggs performed to a large crowd.  A beautiful display of fireworks capped off the festivities.  The Mayor thanked all the committee members, the donors/sponsors, City staff, the volunteers and Miami Valley Communications Council.  Mayor Church cited some projects that were achieved in 2018, including soft water, infrastructure, new businesses especially on Byers Road, Riverfront Park’s splash pad, our new canine police officer, Buck and many other things.  The Mayor said that the City is strong in every way and he thanked City staff.

 

Brandon Policicchio, Chief Customer & Business Development Officer for the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority, updated Council on the schedule changes for RTA.  They have had a revenue challenge since the State reduced their tax revenue 2 years ago by over $4,000,000.  Some routes have been eliminated.  Connect on-demand is a new service that has started.  It enables passengers whose fixed-route service is unavailable or limited to use the Lyft app.  They can either make an appointment or make an advanced or recurring reservation with RTA to take them to an RTA transfer point.  The use of smaller vehicles is an advantage and the service is free.  Upon arriving at the transfer point, passengers can board a regular bus for $2.00.  Council thanked Mr. Policicchio for his informative presentation.

 

Mayor Church opened the Citizen Forum and asked anyone present who wished to discuss an item not appearing on the agenda to come forward.  There was no response and the Forum was closed.
