MOTIONS, ORDERS AND RESOLUTIONS

21. MURPHY — that the ordinance committee meet with the building commissioner and the city solicitor to discuss the merits of establishing a fine for property owners who have had their property sealed off blocking a street past a certain period.  There at least a couple of properties which are depriving others of easy access to their homes and businesses, with no immediate solution being proposed. 

22. MURPHY — that the joint committee of city council and school committee meet to review the high level of absenteeism for each school, the reason why some schools have far better attendance than others, and how particularly in the high schools students can succeed with extremely high percentage absences.  For the Dean campus, absence for 10-12 was 27.5%, 49.3%, and 37.7%, and for the HHS campus, rates were 33.7%, 32.4%, 30.5%, and 27.3%. 

23. MURPHY — that the parks and recreation director, the community development director, and the public works superintendent appear before the DGR committee to discuss the plans and the needed funding to upgrade Springdale Park? 

24. MURPHY — that the city establish a school safety zone in accordance with MGL Ch 90 section 18B as follows: “To establish 2 20 MPH safety Zone in the vicinity of the Dean School and athletic field on Main Street beginning 100 feet northerly of the school property and extending 0.25 miles to the south in accordnace with MGL Chapter 90 section 18B.” 

25. MURPHY — that the city consider having the trees located in city parks examined to assure they are all still healthy.  This is filed after a large tree fell on what in fall would be a youth soccer field area. 

26. MURPHY — that a handicap sign be placed in front of 527 So. Summer St. for Carmen Robles.

27. MURPHY — that the brick sidewalk on the out side of Center
LEBRON-MARTINEZ Street be repaired no later than this fall.  The sidewalk
currently presents a hazard to those walking it, and
also prevents those with disabilities from even using
it safely. 

28. MURPHY — that the sidewalk in front of 575-577 S Bridge Street be leveled to allow safer walking and access for persons with disabilities no later than this fall.  This is a dangerous situation and one that would prevent a person with disabilities to use the sidewalk. 

29. MURPHY — that the sidewalk in front of 322 Pine St be repaired to make it level and more easily accessed. 

30. MURPHY — that the DG&R committee meet with the superintendent of the DPW, the city engineer, and the city forester to discuss the problems caused by planting trees on city streets.  Discussion should include types of trees which might be planted without having negative impact on neighborhood sidewalks. 

31. MURPHY — that the superintendent of the DPW have one of his crews clear the high grass and weeds at the end of Lower Westfield Road entering Rte 5, or work with the state to get it cleared.  In addition, please have the bushes trimmed on the roadway going over the railroad tracks. Constituents have expressed concerns about not being able to see oncoming traffic.

32. MURPHY — that the mayor propose a bond for the demolition of all city owned buildings which have been recommended for demolition.  The bond would probably be close to $2 million, but it would allow the city to clear many unsafe and dilapidated buildings over the next year or two, rather than over the next 10 years, with bond payments only slightly higher than what we pay yearly now for demolition. 

33. MURPHY — Ordered that the department of public works paint traffic dividing lines on both Peltiah Street and St Vincent Street.  This is a constituent request because without the lines, vehicles are crossing onto the other side of traffic as they make turns.

34. MURPHY — Ordered that the trees located on the Chestnut Street side of the South Chestnut Park be trimmed from the corner of Sargeant Street to the end of the park.  This is a police request. 

35. SULLIVAN — That the fees in section 102-34 of the city ordinances be increased as necessary.  We are paying the state more for this service than we are collecting. 

36. SULLIVAN — That the council amend the wording for the recipient of the  CPA  grant to Voces Esperanza for 123 Pine St.  Due to a clerical error it should have read Valley Opportunity Council.   

37. TALLMAN — That the City Council Accept Mass General Law Section 21C 1/2:

Employees who are veterans; participation in Veterans or Memorial Day exercises; time off granted; exceptions 
Section 21C1/2. An employee of a city or town which accepts the provisions of this section who is a veteran as defined in clause Forty-third of section seven of chapter four or is a member of a department of war veterans listed in section seventeen of chapter eight, and who desires to participate in a Veterans Day or Memorial Day exercise, parade or service, may be allowed and granted a reasonable and sufficient period of time off from his duties to attend and participate in such services or exercises.
