MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE
MAYOR AND THE COMMITTEE-OF-THE-WHOLE
OF THE CITY OF EAST MOLINE, ILLINOIS

ON 03/18/2002

 ROLL CALL

Mayor Moreno called the meeting to order and directed Kathryn VenHuizen, to call the roll. The following Aldermen were present: Helen Heiland, John Thodos, Luis Moreno, Carol Doose, Gary Kelley, and Crotis Teague. 6:55 p.m.

REPLACE SQUAD CARS

Steve Verdick informed the committee that it is time to replace three Ford Crown Victoria Squad cars on the annual rotation basis. Cars are to be purchased at Reynolds Motors at the state bid price of $20,677 per car / $62,031 all three and the expense is budgeted.

A Motion was made by Alderman Thodos, seconded by Alderman Kelley to approve the request to purchase three new squad cars from Reynolds Motors at the price of $62,031 for all three. Upon roll call the following voted in favor: Heiland, Thodos, Moreno, Doose, Kelley and Teague.

COMPUTER NETWORK AGREEMENT

Mr. Verdick informed the committee that this item has come before them in the past and was referred back to the personnel commission for further review. The Personnel Commission met with Jim Hughes, Chief Freeman and AFSCME representatives and as a result a Memorandum of Understanding was developed and was approved by the Union Executive Board on March 11, 2002.

A motion was made by Alderman Teague, seconded by Alderman Kelley to approve the Memorandum of Understanding and request the City Attorney draft a resolution. Upon roll call the following voted in favor: Heiland, Thodos, Moreno, Doose, Kelley and Teague.

ROAD BLOCK REQUEST

The East Moline American Legion Auxiliary is requesting permission to have a roadblock at 15th Avenue & 9th Street on Mays 17th and 18th for Poppy Days.

A motion was made by Alderman Thodos, seconded by Alderman Doose to approve the request. Upon omnibus vote all in attendance voted in favor.

SNOW ROUTE

Parked and stalled vehicles interfere with snow removal operations. Banning parking keeps critical street systems open and enables emergency vehicles, buses and traffic to move safely. The current snow removal ordinance covers only the downtown business area and now warning is given to motorists of the probability that their parked or disabled vehicle is subject to citation and towing. RECOMMENDATION: Enact an updated ordinance that will cover the entire city and warn the public of parking enforcement action by the city. Install snow route parking signs in the downtown business area.

A motion was made by Alderman Thodos, seconded by Alderman Moreno to have the City Attorney draft an Ordinance to include the entire city for snow routes including the Library Parking Lots. Upon omnibus vote all in attendance voted in favor.

RIVERWAY SIGNAGE

Kathy Wine gave a presentation to the Committee on River Way Signage. “River Way Signage” is a sign system designed for the entire Quad Cities. The purpose of the system is to better identify cities, areas of the Quad Cities and major destinations. The system was developed by River Action, the Quad Cities Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, the Quad City Development Group, and the cities of Davenport, Bettendorf (Iowa), and East Moline, Moline, and Rock Island (Illinois). This was for information only – no action was required.

ADJOURNMENT

A motion was made by Alderman Kelley, seconded by Alderman Teague, to adjourn the meeting. Upon roll call the following voted in favor: Heiland, Thodos, Moreno, Doose, Kelley and Teague. Motion carried. 7:35p.m.
