NOTICE OF PROPOSED VILLAGE OF RICHFIELD CHARTER AMENDMENTS

In accordance with Section 9 of Article XVIII, Ohio Constitution, notice is given of the following proposed amendments to the Village of Richfield Charter that will appear as ballot issues at the November 3, 2020 Election in the Village of Richfield. (The text of the Charter proposed to be deleted is shown in brackets and the text to be added is shown in boldface.)

ISSUE 27

 SECTION 4.04       ORGANIZATION.

At 6:30 p.m. on the second day of January of each year, (or if such date be a Saturday or a Sunday, then the following Monday) the Council shall meet in the Council Chambers for the purpose of organization.

ISSUE 28

SECTION 10.01      ORGANIZATION.

There shall be a Board of Zoning Appeals which shall consist of five (5) regular members and two (2) alternate members who shall be electors of the Municipality not holding other municipal office or employment, to be appointed for terms of five (5) years, or removed by the Mayor subject to confirmation by the affirmative vote of a majority of the members elected or appointed to Council. The terms of the members of the Board of Zoning Appeals shall be staggered so that the term for one (1) member shall expire annually on each December 31st. Thereafter, a member shall be appointed to a new five (5) year term to begin on January 1st. A vacancy occurring during the term of any member shall be filled for the unexpired term in the manner authorized for an original appointment.

Alternate members of the Board of Zoning Appeals shall be in addition to the regular members and may substitute for regular members who are unable to attend a meeting or hearing of the Board. Alternative members shall only be entitled to participate and vote as members when they substitute for regular members who are unable to attend a meeting or hearing of the Board.

All members of the Board shall serve without compensation unless otherwise provided by ordinance of Council

ISSUE 29

SECTION 13.04        POWERS AND DUTIES.

 The Park and Recreation Board shall:

1. Have general policy-making, planning, and administrative power over all municipal parks, subject to the provisions of this Charter and appropriations of Council;

   2. Accept financial and land donations for park or recreational purposes, subject to the approval of the majority of members elected or appointed to  Council;

   3. Promulgate rules, regulations, and policies, which shall be subject to the approval of the majority of members elected or appointed to Council;

   4. Consult with the Planning Commission on all matters of mutual interest;

   5. Have such other powers and duties as may be conferred upon it by Council.

ISSUE 30

SECTION 19.14      CHARTER CORRECTIONS.

Council shall be authorized to make typographical corrections to or changes or deletions in, as well as changes in the form of, the Charter; however, the changes shall relate to matters of form; or, to make the Charter consistent with Ohio law upon advice of the Director of Law. Any such modification, change, or correction shall, in all cases, be approved by resolution of Council, prior to going into effect. No modification, change or correction shall affect the construction, meaning, substance, or intent of the Charter as adopted and amended by the people, except where the change corrects the Charter to comply with Ohio law. The specific powers granted by this Section include:

1. Council may correct obvious misspellings, typographical errors, and non-substantive matters in the Charter, including but not limited to gender neutral language.

 2. Council may divide the text of any section or paragraph into shorter paragraphs or subparagraphs and letter or number the same to improve clarity and ease of reference.

 3. Council may renumber the sections and rearrange their order to provide more coherent grouping of sections related in subject matter and continuous, consecutive numbering of sections.

 4. Council may remove inconsistent language and correct language that violates Ohio law to insure that the Charter complies with Ohio law.

Upon the adoption of any amendment that creates or abolishes an office or offices or changes the powers or duties of any officer or department of the Village, the Council shall make necessary correlative changes in existing sections that refer to such offices, officers, or departments by deleting therefrom, as the case may be, the name of the office created or the title of the officer or department then having such powers or duties.

Attention Residents

The Village will strictly follow the State of Ohio guidelines provided to us by Governor DeWine with respect to Social Gathering rules.  This will form the Mayor’s basis with regard to public parks and facilities for the remainder of the year.  

On June 1, the Village will open the parks, pavilions and playgrounds to be used as long as the Governor’s rules are followed for social distancing.  No more than ten (10) people in a group is permitted at this time.   Village buildings, including Village Town Hall, Fellowship Hall, Senior Center, Recreation Center, Old Town Hall, and Masonic Hall, will be closed to the public until the Governor lifts the 10-person rule.      

Donations being requested for Village Safety Forces

The Village of Richfield Safety Forces are requesting assistance with donations of Personal Protective Equipment. E.g. Gowns, Dust masks and N-95 masks. Any such donations would be greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at the Richfield Fire Department.
