RECOGNITION OF VISITORS:


 

President Miller recognized the following visitors:


 

Chuck Smith, 2118 Elmwood stated that he is president of the Wilmette Hockey Association and was in attendance to update the Board on the fund raising efforts of the ice rink task force, which proposes to construct a second full size ice rink on the southwestern edge of Centennial as a privately funded facility. Mr. Smith reported that the task force, consisting of the Wilmette Hockey Association, the Winnetka Hockey Club, and the New Trier Hockey Club, continue to meet and have put together presentation materials. At this time, there are four or five individuals and foundations which have agreed to meet with the task force and listen to the presentation, and they are working on identifying another five or six potential donors. Mr. Smith stated that the members of the task force have a positive attitude about achieving their goal and it is felt that it will become clearer within the next four to five weeks what commitments are in place.


 

Commissioner O’Malley commended the task force for their hard work on this project. He stated that if they succeed, it will be a wonderful asset for the Park District.


 

Commissioner Marcus stated that if the task force requires more time, the Park District would be willing to work with them.


 

Mr. Smith thanked the Board for their support and stated that Director Porter, Superintendent Grisamore, and Ice Manager Terry Juliar have been extremely helpful to the task force.


 

Tracey Crawford, NSSRA Superintendent of Recreation stated that she was in attendance to update the Board on NSSRA programs and future plans as Executive Director John McGovern was unable to attend the meeting. Ms. Crawford noted that the Northern Suburban Special Recreation Association is a cooperative consisting of twelve north suburban communities which provide recreational services for children and adults with disabilities and special needs. Each member has a representative who serves on the NSSRA Board and Director Porter is the Wilmette Park District’s representative.


 

Ms. Crawford explained that NSSRA has just completed their three year plan, which for the most part achieved all the goals set forth, and NSSRA is now embarking on their next three year plan for 2007, 2008, and 2009. Some of the highlights of the plan are:


 

  • Improved awareness and visibility with the following groups – children with disabilities and their families; people with disabilities out of high school and their families; and partner agency staffs and boards. Ms. Crawford noted that NSSRA has had a problem with marketing and it is felt that it is very important to get the word out about the opportunities that NSSRA provides.


 

  • Increased participation of NSSRA customers in all categories


 

  • Increased financial support of donors by 25%.


 

  • Purchase of new registration software


 

  • Increased surveys of customers to determine program satisfaction and overall agency satisfaction.


 

Ms. Crawford also noted that one of the main goals of NSSRA is to offer more programming opportunities for adults in the 22-49 age category in a program which is known as the Enriched Lifestyles for Adults (ELA) program. She explained that special needs people graduate high school at age 22 and currently, there is not a great deal of programming offered to that age group.


 

Ms. Crawford reported that the NSSRA offices, which suffered substantial damage from a flood a month ago, are in the process of being refurbished. Staff has begun moving back into their offices on the first floor which was uninhabitable after the flood, and everything is almost back to normal.


 

Kathy Dodd, 832 Forest stated that her daughter, Stacey Dodd, has participated in both NSSRA programs and Wilmette Park District programs for about three years. She has been in ice skating, gymnastics, and sports skills programs, such as baseball and basketball. One of her favorite activities is Saturday horseback riding, which is provided by NSSRA. For Wilmette Park District programs, such as gymnastics, she has an aide. Ms. Dodd noted that her daughter has a great deal of energy and she is gratified that she is able to participate in these types of programs and in many cases, enjoy them with her friends. She feels that NSSRA programs and the inclusion programs offered by the Park District are very important for improving the quality of life for children with special needs.


 

Director Porter thanked Ms. Crawford and Mrs. Dodd for their comments. He stated that he wanted to elaborate on the inclusion program which Mrs. Dodd had mentioned. He explained that NSSRA either provides aides or trains Park District staff to work with the children who attend Park District programs. He noted that the Wilmette Park District has the largest inclusion program of the twelve NSSRA member agencies. This has been very successful in providing opportunities for special needs children to interact and socialize with their friends and siblings. Director Porter also noted that the Enriched Living for Adults (ELA) program offers socialization, life skills and recreational activities for adults 21-49 who are not working. NSSRA is very enthusiastic about the ELA program and is continually working to enhance this program.


 

Commissioner Wolff moved and Commissioner O’Malley seconded a motion to approve Resolution 2006-R-10, A RESOLUTION RATIFYING AMENDMENT OF AMENDED ARTICLES OF AGREEMENT FOR NSSRA.


 

Director Porter explained that the City of Highwood has been a member of the cooperative in the past, but was forced to withdraw in 1994 due to significant financial problems. He noted that recently State law was amended to exclude the Special Recreation levy from the tax cap. and the City of Highwood has obtained Home Rule status, which provides more flexibility in the city’s tax levy giving Highwood the opportunity to rejoin the cooperative. Director Porter added that the NSSRA Articles of Agreement require that a request for membership to NSSRA be approved by at least eight of the 12 members of the NSSRA Board. The NSSRA Board approved Highwood’s membership on November 9, 2006. In addition, the amendment must be authorized by at least eight of the member agency boards.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None. Motion carried.


 

APPROVAL OF VOUCHER LIST:


 

Commissioner Brault moved and Commissioner Wolff seconded a motion to approve the Voucher List in the amount of $1,885,090.97, a copy of which is to be attached to and become a permanent part of the minutes of this meeting.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None. Motion carried.


 

COMMITTEE REPORTS:


 

Parks and Recreation -- Committee Chair Cohen reported that the Committee met on October 18th. She stated that the Committee considered a request for a fenced dog play area at the Mallinckrodt park property and the addition of a water sprayer near the Gillson Park dog beach for cleaning the sand off dogs. After discussion, the Committee agreed that the public hearings on the open space at Mallinckrodt had made it very clear that the community prefers a passive park. Therefore, they would not recommend putting the dog play area at Mallinckrodt. However, staff has been directed to look into a more appropriate area for this type of facility. With regard to the water sprayer request, Superintendent Lambrecht explained that the closest fresh water source is about 1,000 feet away and it would cost approximately $15,000 to get the water to the dog beach area.


 

The Committee also discussed the concerns expressed by some dog beach users that the dog beach is closed in the middle of the day during the summer. Superintendent Grisamore stated that this was done originally because of the proximity to the Aquatics Camps and other camps that use Gillson during the middle of the day. In addition, on the weekend there are kayakers close to the area. Superintendent Grisamore stated that staff is reviewing the practice as part of the annual lakefront evaluation.


 

Commissioner Cohen moved and Commissioner Brault seconded a motion to approve Ordinance 2006-O-8, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING AN ORDINANCE REGULATING THE USE OF PARKS AND PROPERTY OWNED OR CONTROLLED BY THE WILMETTE PARK DISTRICT as recommended by the Parks and Recreation Committee.


 

Commissioner Cohen explained that the Committee reviewed the current Park District smoking regulations, and is recommending that smoking be prohibited at the swimming and sailing beaches. She noted that the Committee will continue to look at the possibility of prohibiting smoking at organized events in the parks, but realizes that enforcement may be problematic and prohibiting smoking in the parks is not recommended at this time. Currently the Village of Wilmette prohibits smoking in all indoor public buildings and the Park District prohibits smoking in the Wallace Bowl and at Centennial Pool The Park District follows the Village Ordinance, but currently the District’s ordinances do not specifically address smoking in any Park District facilities.


 

During discussion, Commissioner O’Malley stated that since there is no provision prohibiting smoking at the golf course, he feels it would be unfair to prohibit smoking at the beaches. He added that he has been at the beach on many occasions and has never felt that smoking has been a problem. He also felt it could impact on the sale of seasonal and daily passes. President Miller felt that it would be best to prohibit smoking at all facilities, including parks. There was discussion regarding the difficulty in enforcing the ban on smoking in parks, and the effect of banning smoking at the golf course. It was noted that in accordance with the Village Ordinance, smoking is not allowed in the clubhouse, but is allowed on the outdoor dining area.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Crowley, and Marcus; voting No -- Commissioners Cohen, Miller, O’Malley, and Wolff. Motion failed.


 

Lengthy discussion ensued and Director Porter pointed out that some of the provisions in the ordinance, such as prohibiting smoking at the Wallace Bowl, Centennial Pool, and at all indoor facilities as mandated by the Village of Wilmette, are already in place, but have not been officially set forth in the Park District Ordinances. Therefore, the only addition would be prohibiting smoking at the beaches, which has been requested by many residents.


 

Commissioner O’Malley moved and Commissioner Brault seconded a motion to reconsider a motion to approve Ordinance 2006-O-8, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING AN ORDINANCE REGULATING THE USE OF PARKS AND PROPERTY OWNED OR CONTROLLED BY THE WILMETTE PARK DISTRICT as recommended by the Parks and Recreation Committee.


 

Commissioner Wolff moved and Commissioner O’Malley seconded a motion to refer the issue of prohibiting smoking at the swimming and sailing beaches back to the Parks and Recreation Committee for further consideration.


 

President Miller recognized Mr. Merwin Crow, who stated that eight years ago, he and other residents had requested that smoking be prohibited at the Wallace Bowl and the Board was very responsive in granting that request. He was very appreciative of that action and stated that smoking is definitely a problem at both the swimming and sailing beaches. He urged the Board to reconsider and pass the prohibition at this time.


 

By a roll call vote to refer the issue back to Committee, voting Yes -- Commissioners O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No – Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, and Miller. Motion failed.


 

On the motion to reconsider approval of Ordinance 2006-O-8, by a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, and Wolff; voting No – Commissioner O’Malley. Motion carried.


 


 

On the reconsidered motion, by a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, and Wolff; voting No – Commissioner O’Malley. Motion carried.


 

Commissioner Cohen further reported that the Committee also reviewed the issue of naming the park property at Mallinckrodt, which was referred back to the Parks and Recreation Committee at the October 9th Board meeting. The Committee reviewed the District’s current park naming policy, which was adopted by the Board in May of 1996. Commissioner Cohen explained that since the property is considered a community park, its name would have to comply with the criteria outlined in the park naming policy. She stated that the name Mallinckrodt is of historical significance and read an article which appeared in the November 9, 2006 edition of the Wilmette Life which outlined the history of the property going back to 1912.


 

During discussion, Commissioner Brault agreed with Commissioner Cohen that the name Mallinckrodt would be appropriate as it also fits the criteria of a name of neighborhood or subdivision. Commissioner Marcus stated that he did not agree that the name fit the criteria outlined in the Policy for Naming Parks as the policy states that “significant historical events” is one criteria and also the neighborhood is not known as the Mallinckrodt neighborhood. In addition, Commissioner Marcus felt there may be some First Amendment issues involving separation of church and state. He suggested that staff investigate that issue. Commissioner Wolff felt that it might be a good idea to have all the elementary and junior high schools involved in a naming contest for the park. President Miller noted that this was a community project financed through property taxes and it would be appropriate to have the community involved in the naming of the park.


 

Commissioner Crowley moved and Commissioner Cohen seconded a motion to approve retention of the name Mallinckrodt for the park property at 1041 Ridge Road.


 

Director Porter noted that per the existing policy, five affirmative votes are required to approve the name.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, and Crowley; voting No – Commissioners Marcus, Miller, O’Malley, and Wolff. Motion failed.


 

It was agreed that the issue of revising the Policy for Naming Parks will be referred to the Financial Planning and Policy Committee and that staff will investigate the First Amendment issue.


 

Commissioner Cohen concluded her report by noting that Superintendent Lambrecht reported that the new dog regulation signs have been received and will be posted within the next few weeks. She also noted that lakefront budgets are being prepared to include operating expenses for a Langdon Park Swimming Beach and that staff is waiting for the Village to make a determination if any special permitting will be necessary.


 

Golf Operations – Committee Chair O’Malley reported that the Committee met on October 28th. At that time, the Committee discussed a request from David Kritzler, on behalf of the Ouilmette Golf Club, to open the golf lottery to non residents. After hearing from visitors regarding the issue, staff was directed to review the issue and report back for discussion at the next committee meeting.


 

Commissioner O’Malley also reported that due to very unfavorable weather conditions, rounds of play are down for the past two months. However, the course is still up 957 rounds from last year. He also reported that the USGA returned to the course to look at tree trimming and possible tree removal. Areas that are overgrown and where trees could be harvested were noted and the importance of on-going tree maintenance was discussed.


 

Commissioner O’Malley moved and Commissioner Marcus seconded a motion to authorize staff to negotiate a contract with Open Kitchens, Inc. to license the food service operation at the Wilmette Golf Club as recommended by the Golf Operations Committee.


 

Commissioner O’Malley explained that in August, the Golf Operations Committee was authorized to seek proposals for outsourcing the food services operation at the Wilmette Golf Club. Staff sent proposals to several food service establishments and published notice in the Pioneer Press and two proposals were received. He added that both firms proposed to pay the Wilmette Park District approximately $54,000 a year to operate the food service operation. Commissioner O’Malley stated that staff visited both operations including several of the Open Kitchens sites. In addition, references were checked on Open Kitchens, Inc. and all the reviews were extremely positive.


 

During discussion, it was noted that the contract would be for a three year period. The restaurant operator would operate the banquet business as well as the food service operation and would make a determination of whether to continue the Friday Dinner. It was also noted that golf outings would have the option of having their meals elsewhere if they so desire.


 

Director Porter explained that prior to, and since the fire at the club house, the food service operation has struggled financially. He noted that for 2006, the anticipated loss will be in excess of $175,000, which does include approximately $106,000 in administrative expenses. If the operation is licensed, general administration expenses for 2007 of approximately $108,000 would need to be absorbed throughout the District. On the other hand, expenses which are not currently charged to the food service operation, but would reflect reductions in the District’s expenses, include approximately $23,000 in FICA and Social Security expense, $3,000 in IMRF expense, and $12,000 in liability insurance, totaling approximately $38,000 in reduced expenses District-wide. Coupled with the $54,000 in revenue, the financial position for the District overall would improve by $92,000.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None. Motion carried.


 

Centennial Operations -- Committee Chair Crowley reported that the Committee met on November 7th. The proposed Fiscal Year 2007 Tennis Budget was reviewed and discussion was held on the success of the lesson program filling the times made available by decreased season reserve play.


 

Commissioner Crowley further reported that the Committee reviewed the proposed Fiscal Year 2007 Pool Budget and discussed the good job done by staff during a season of unfavorable pool weather. Season pass fees will increase by 4% as recommended by the Financial Planning Committee. Staff explained that based on rates at surrounding pools, the decision was made to raise the non-resident rate to $13.00 instead of $14.00 because of the possibility of losing a significant number of non residents which would have a detrimental effect on resident rates. After review, the Committee concurred with staff.


 

Commissioner Crowley also reported that the Committee reviewed the proposed Fiscal Year 2007 Ice Budget. Staff pointed out the decreased percentage of Centennial management salaries charged to Ice based on time spent in the Pool area. It was also noted that there are adjustments to both the revenue and expense line items due to the closing of the facility from May 20 through June 2, 2007 to allow completion of proposed capital projects. Staff reported that the main ice rink contract rate was increased for all ice contract holders, except the Wilmette Hockey Association and New Trier Hockey, beginning January 1, 2007 to $280.00 per hour. Any Increases for WHA and New Trier are scheduled to take effect beginning April 2007. Staff recommended, and the Committee concurred, that rates should increase to $290.00 per hour beginning in April 2007 for all contract holders. Similar increases were proposed and approved for the studio rink.


 

Financial Planning & Policy – Committee Chair Brault reported that the Committee met immediately prior to the Board meeting. He stated that the Committee met with a representative of Business Technology Partners who reviewed his report of the Park District’s 2006 Information Technology Strategic Plan. This is the first phase of a two phase project. The first phase covered an on-site review of the District’s current hardware and software technology. Commissioner Brault stated that a number of recommendations were made indicating a need to change to flexible and integrated software applications. He noted that the District has been looking at on line registration. At this point, registration is offered by e-mail, but must be entered by staff. On line registration would greatly improve the process. After discussing the next step of setting up an employee IT advisory committee to investigate the technology, the Committee asked the BTP representative to update a proposal for Phase II of the project.


 

(Commissioner Marcus left the meeting at 9:20 p.m.)


 

Commissioner Brault moved and Commissioner O’Malley seconded a motion to appoint Smart and Associates to perform phase one of an internal controls review of the Park District for a fee of $15,000 as recommended by the Financial Planning and Policy Committee.


 

Commissioner Brault explained that the 2006 budget includes a $15,000 line item for an internal controls review. After interviewing two of the four firms that submitted proposals, the Committee is recommending that Smart and Associates be retained to provide an initial study of the District’s internal controls.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None. Absent – Commissioner Marcus. Motion carried.


 

(Commissioner Marcus returned to the meeting at 9:25 p.m.)


 

Commissioner Brault moved and Commissioner Cohen seconded a motion to approve Resolution 2006-R-9, Truth in Taxation as recommended by the Financial Planning and Policy Committee.


 

Director Porter explained that the 2006 tax levy will need to be approved by the Board at the December 4th Board meeting. The law also requires that the Board pass a Truth in Taxation Resolution which estimates the Park District tax for next year. He noted that the Committee is recommending that the District build in a factor for new growth which is permitted to be levied outside of the tax cap. In addition, the Committee is anticipating that there will be an issue of up to $2 million in General Obligation Bonds which have been previously authorized by referendum for the completion of the park portion of the project at Mallinckrodt. The additional bonds for Mallinckrodt would be issued in late 2006 or early 2007.


 

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Crowley, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None. Motion carried.


 

Director Porter stated that although not required by law, there will be a public hearing regarding the tax levy at the December meeting, as has always been the practice.


 

DIRECTOR’S REPORT:


 

Director Porter reported that at one time this season, the golf operation was up ten percent over last year. However, due to very poor weather conditions over the past 60 days, golf will probably finish up at about the same level as 2005.


 

Director Porter further reported that 3-D Design has finished the plans for the park land at Mallinckrodt. It is hoped that bids will be available for approval at the December Board meeting. As reported earlier in the meeting, the plan is to issue $2 million in General Obligation Bonds either at the end of 2006 or early in 2007 to develop the park. In response to a question from President Miller, Director Porter explained that of the $25 million bond issue approved by referendum in 2002, there is still approximately $8.5 million available. After the issue of the $2 million for the park land development, the total cost of the Mallinckrodt project will be approximately $18.5 million.


 

NEW BUSINESS:


 

Director Porter reported that the Intergovernmental Cooperation Committee will be meeting on November 27th hosted by School District #39. Commissioners Crowley and Wolff are the Park District representatives. He asked for topics to submit for the agenda. It was decided to submit the smoking regulations issue, an update on the skate park, dogs in the parks, update on Mallinckrodt, and update on the tax levy as agenda items for the meeting.


 

Commissioner O’Malley moved and Commissioner Cohen seconded a motion to adjourn to executive session for discussion of the performances of specific employees of the District in accordance with Section 2(c)(1) of the Open Meetings Act, and the semi annual review of minutes of prior meetings lawfully closed under the Open Meetings Act for the purpose of possible release of such minutes in accordance with Section 2(c)(21) of the Open Meetings Act.
