Delaware City Council Notes: JEDD contract with Berkshire, Roops Brothers Bar Ownership

The first half of city council’s October 27 meeting was swift, as they cleared through most items as fast as possible due to the lack of power. The second half was largely focused on discussion of Ordinance 14-102, which was passed and authorizes City Manager Tom Homan to enter a Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) with Berkshire Township to create a Tanger-Simon outlet mall.

The vote was largely in favor – with the exception of At-Large Councilman Kent Shafer, who was excused, and Third Ward Councilman Joe DiGenova, who voted against taking action on the second reading without Shafer being present.

City Attorney Darren Shulman explains the details of the JEDD contract.

The city will receive a four percent administrative fee that the city will receive first from income tax revenue, to offset the cost of administering taxes in the JEDD. There will also be a JEDD board, which will receive one percent. Berkshire Township will get 60 percent of the rest and Delaware city, 40 percent.

The JEDD board will govern the area and will have three members – one appointed by the city, one by the township, and one by both together. When businesses fill the JEDD they will get a fourth member and workers will receive a fifth to represent them.

During the discussion among city officials, power was restored to the building and downtown Delaware; no one from the community came forward during the public hearing preceding the vote.

Council members hold the second half of their meeting in the light.

In other areas covered before the JEDD discussion, the city council was introduced to five new city employees who’ve recently begun working with the Economic Development and Public Works departments. The council also approved the transfer of the Roop Brothers Bar’s liquor license from an LLC owned by Al Roop to one owned by Joshua Moore and Mika Sparks.

“I’d like to thank you for everything you’ve considered for me and my brother at Roops,” Al told the council.

“…I think the city and myself needed some new guys (who are) 20 years younger to carry on the legacy of Roops in an up-to-date form and these are the guys. I thank you all.”

Delaware Librarian Receives Ohio Library Council “Librarian Of The Year.”

Librarian of the Year: Mary Jane Santos, Delaware County District Library

Mary Jane Santos, Director, Delaware County District Library (DCDL), was appointed Director at a time when the county population had exploded, becoming one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Unfortunately, the library’s budget was not increasing to meet the needs of these new community members. Santos developed a strategy focused on two goals: pass a levy and build a branch in an area of rapidly expanding population. Under her leadership, both of these goals were accomplished. In recent years, DCDL has expanded services and facilities to keep up with the community. Santos’ strong and steady guidance has allowed staff to carry forward with innovations and changes while keeping the “small library” team feeling. During her tenure, the library has nearly doubled in size and continued to increase in circulation, visitors, programs, cardholders, and computer use. Santos has developed partnerships with schools, other libraries, higher education institutions, law enforcement, and businesses that strengthen the library’s importance in the community.

The Ohio Library Council (OLC) is continuing its tradition of honoring some of the best and brightest individuals and organizations in the Ohio public library community through its Awards and Honors program. The 2014 honorees have demonstrated outstanding
leadership and remarkable dedication to providing the best possible library service. Santos will receive her award at the Awards and Honors Luncheon on Oct. 8 at the OLC Convention and Expo in Columbus. Santos was selected based on nominations and recommendations received from her peers in the Ohio public library community.
