Additionally, she has a meeting with the owner of the Chagrin Valley Times this week. Aurora will also be exploring other options to promote news in the city such as increasing the number of newsletter issues. 

Womer Benjamin delivered a State of the City to Aurora’s senior citizens at a luncheon held March 1 at the Walker building. The address was followed by a question-and-answer session.

Since the Feb. 13 council meeting, she has completed the following activities:

  • Gave the State of the City address at the Bertram Inn
  • Attended a retirement party for Dave Barnes, hosted by the Aurora Firemen’s Association
  • Visited McMaster-Carr Supply Company along with Economic Development Director Holly Harris Bane and Portage Development Board President Brad Ehrhart
  • Met with a group of AP Government students at Aurora High School
  • Participated in an Archives and Records Commission meeting

There were no questions or comments for the mayor. Horvat referred to the printed law director’s report and asked the council for any questions and comments. Seeing none, he went on to the council president’s report.

Council President’s Report

Horvat asked council to support a motion to amend the meeting agenda by adding two ordinances, 2023-043 and 2023-044, discussed earlier at the Committee of the Whole meeting. Motion was made to add these ordinances to the agenda. Motion was seconded and passed.

Citizens’ Comments – Legislation

Resident Deb C. asked council if Ordinance 2023-004 “Prohibited Standing or Parking Places” would be voted on or discussed this evening.  

Council Remarks – Legislation

Horvat introduced State Representative Gail Pavliga (R), who represents the 72nd District in the Ohio House. He told council and the audience that she stopped by to talk briefly about her agenda for her second term.

Rep. Pavliga then approached the podium and told council and audience members how happy she was to be at the meeting. She briefly touched on items which she is currently working on that would affect Aurora residents:

  • She has been appointed to three committees. She is a member of the Finance Committee, which is considering a huge transportation bill. She will be holding town hall meetings soon and encouraged residents and council members to be part of these as she needs input from citizens.
  • The transportation budget includes $1 billion for repairing rural roads in order to spur development.  
  • The All Ohio Future Fund is also something to review. This fund divides Ohio into four sectors in order to make $2.5 billion in investments in land to get them “shovel ready” for developers. She would like to see Aurora take advantage of this fund to spark growth in the city.
  • Pavliga will be talking to area fire and police chiefs about the “Next Gen 911” program, which is an effort to improve local dispatch centers.
  • Ohio Speaker of the House Jason Stephens has appointed her chair of Behavioral Health for the state caucus; she truly hopes to address mental health issues, which were a huge part of her campaign platform. She has made it a priority to effectively support sustained recovery.
  • She is proud to announce that her bill for affordable housing was listed as a priority bill and labeled HB3. The bill seeks to provide affordable housing but does not include Section 8 or government housing. The bill intends to provide a federal low-income housing tax credit to builders and developers to spur affordable housing for students, seniors and workforce housing. These projects will not require a change in zoning. Cities will be able to use the bill as a tool for development.
  • Finally, she noted that with so many fine higher-education institutions so near such as Hiram College, Kent State University and NEOMED, she is also happy to sit on the Higher Education Committee.
  • She and the mayor will be holding office hours from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 16 at the senior center. She is excited about this endeavor and hopes to meet many residents at that time.

Pavliga thanked council and residents for their time and said she was delighted to attend this evening.

Horvat asked if any council member had any questions or comments for the representative. Council Member Reva Barner thanked Pavliga for attending and offered her support in any of her endeavors. Council Member Dennis Kovach also told Pavliga to feel free to call on him for any help or support.

Horvat thanked Pavliga for joining them this evening and segued into the legislation portion of the council meeting.

9:23We’re voting on it and if you’re voting on it and you’re making additions to it, if you could maybe once or twice what’s going on there so I can record them.

9:37Anyone else?

9:39We do have a guest here Miss Pat who is our state representative.

9:43We’d like to speak just a little bit.

9:45She’s got to get away from it so I thought I’d make a little easy thank you.

9:53Mr President the students members of council madam.

9:58Mayor, directors, chief friends, constituents.

10:01And it’s a pleasure to be here this evening to address to you last time I was here.

10:09I want your incumbent state representative but I was happily re elected noon or november.

10:16Listen to me.

10:17I’m very happy to be here today to talk to you about some of the things that have been going on as I represent you down in columbus now the mayor said tonight that was supposed to be a short meeting that I I didn’t really change all of that.

10:30So all in the, so but I do want to be able to talk to you about a few things.

10:37An essay pertain.

10:39when you are representative for a community, we are located legislation obviously in policy that affect the state of Ohio legendary community that we live in and the represent.

10:51So I was very pleased upon my re election and the speaker of the house, on three committees that I’m very happy about one of them on the stability for our district for the state is the finance committee and we are meeting the finance committee right now discussing a special transportation.

11:09But the state operating budget will take us approximately six months and I’m planning on coming to meetings such as this, having subsidy meetings, town halls and office hours to be able to discuss things that we would like to put into the operating budget.

11:24The bill itself is over about 4000 pages.

11:27And one of the things that I didn’t want to to highlight that, that I thought was very important that the governor talked about this, state of the state address with the auto Ohio Future Fund.

11:37I was not aware of something that he was going to be doing, which is, we’re going to be dividing the state before quadrants.

11:44There’s going to be an economic investment made each of these areas.

11:49So we have land ready with our infrastructure with the ability to get power and, basically shovel ready areas.

11:59in my discussions in this area, I would love to see Aurora in on admitting streets, borough Charlottesville and many other areas Are looking into being able to take advantage of that because I would love to be able to see that type of development coming to this part of Ohio such as those being constructed in licking county for Intel and Honda over the county.

12:23And so this particular money, 2.5 billion will seek to mainland ready that type of investment and hopefully draw those type of jobs and programs here to the area.

12:36The transportation force in state budget is currently being amended and the Finance Committee and one of those will set aside a million dollars for rural road projects with the state of Ohio.

12:46And this budget is a record high $3.5 million also rainy day fund to ideally for development and repair areas of road outside of three major cities.

12:57So I think that we are taking a look at our governor and the need for economic development, workforce development and getting people to live and to work here in the area and across the state and making the necessary investments to be able to support that type of developments.

13:14And also we also we’re having a next generation 911 service to improve local dispatch centers which I can talk to our chiefs about and I’m sure they have already no a little bit more than a lot about that, but part of it is close to my heart and my legislative priority is mental health.

13:33Most of you may have known that I was a non career politician.

13:38And one of the reasons that I ran for office was because in Portage County we have the highest suicide rates, We have one of the highest substance abuse rates rates in the state, and also a lot of unaddressed mental health issues.

13:52That was something that I think that public policy needed to address and was one of the main things that I I’m pleased to say that the speaker of the House has appointed Chair of behavioral health for the state, from the States and caucus for the for the House and very excited to see the bills that are going to be put forth that we can begin to truly address mental health the way that I’m planning to work that is that we are going to have the committee sort of into different areas because we’re looking at substance abuse and recovery and prevention of of so we’re gonna be having two different talks with this week where we’re gonna be having a k through a child and adolescent specialist in talking about mental health, adult mental health, prevention of addiction and also sustained recovery.

14:44And we have in our area so many wonderful agencies that are currently being supported to be able to work on this and support those affected in those same recovery.

14:55Notice that the sources stating recovery because our research in this area has said that a person can be supported up to five years.

15:03They only have a 10% rate of relapse.

15:08And so anyone who has ever lived with someone or understands substance abuse recovery, it is a very difficult process and there’s multiple which recovery, but we need to be able to support those affected and through housing, transportation and jobs and, just an overall support.

15:29And our goal is always my, my my work that I don’t understand is sustained recovery to that.

15:37In fact, we have also priority bills.

15:42my bill for affordable housing was listed as house bill three, which is very exciting.

15:47It’s one of the top 10 bills and it’s also the priority for the caucus.

15:51Affordable housing is not, Section eight is not a government housing.

15:57It is is saying that we work force here and people are paid a wage, that many times they can’t even afford basic living.

16:06It is a problem to be able to draw people to an area in Portage County and especially in Kent and savannah area, there are many people with 50% of their income Housing.

16:20I believe that is unacceptable.

16:21So this particular bill that I have sponsored on the priority bills in the house to repair a federal low-income housing tax credit that is available very competitive process of 9%.

16:33Also engage in 4%, 1 that is a tax credit with the state to equity and two builders, developers wanting to come in and these types of projects can be used for senior citizens housing, student housing or enforced housing.

16:50And many other ways we wish to enhance the community.

16:53There is no change to mandated the looked at such as yours and say you could use this as a tool for economic development.

17:03And House Bill three is considered one of the priorities of the legislative session and I’m very pleased to be the joint sponsor of that particular film.

17:13And so, we’ll have a robust processes in our committees and I also wanted to let you know that three higher education institutions located here in and I’m also on the, for higher education, which I feel a very important step for our area to be able to look at continuing to draw students here and continuing to meet the needs of training and workforce development here in public.

17:41, and as I mentioned earlier, I’m also on and also in the subcommittee for agriculture, natural resources in paddle, which is a very exciting and new area for me to be able to explore and workers at all of you.

17:57I say with everything in me, I love the job that I do and I am here to be able to listen to each and every one of you, you are the leadership within a community and people talk with you.

18:10We all want to invest for our communities for the families and the people that live within our districts.

18:15I will be able to take those causes down to columbus and fight for the things that we want here today.

18:22Important to have the very best place in the community that we have great schools, we can raise families can work and higher quality of life.

18:31And I thank each and every one of you for the opportunity to speak.

18:34I thank you all for the service that you do for the community and with the permission of the president could have any questions.

18:43I would be happy to answer questions with his permission for each and every one of you should have received your card for me or a christmas card with my information on on the email, contact me and if all that fails, the mayor has anything else.

18:57So you get that information from her.

19:00So the first thing would be that I would like to hear from our finance or any of you.

19:06Anything that you would like to have as an amendment to our operating budget that I could amend or look at that.

19:13We could actually stay operating budget we passed.

19:20Thank you.

19:53And I know that you’ll do a fantastic job dr this downpour and we’ll be in touch.

20:02Thank you so much.

20:03And I did not just leave with one thing.

20:04I always available to each and every one of you have my numbers, but the mayor and I are holding office hours should be there for the first hour and I do these across the district where constituents can come in and address their concerns.

20:17They just need to call and scheduled appointment will be at the Senior center on March 16th between four and seven.

21:57And I’ll ask for to have that amendment before you vote on accepting amendment.

22:24We got a lot of good feedback from residents and we appreciate that very much because we don’t want anything to negatively affect any of the residents will be affected, appreciate the advocacy of councilman DJ and other council etcetera.

22:41who worked on this on this with the chief Chief fire Mr is coming there.

22:47This is the third iteration of 3 51 03 24.

22:56and so we made another, we’re getting everybody together to try to try to find common ground.

23:02I think we have in front of us legislation, an amendment that that goes a long way to satisfy a number of concerns.

23:10I think very good concerns that were brought up here.

23:12And you know, we are not a one size fits all community.
