PUBLIC HEARING OPENED. A communication dated April 15, 2013 was received from City Solicitor Ellen Callahan Doucette with a document entitled “Declaration of Restrictive Covenant attached which read as follows:

 

Attached is a copy of the Declaration of Restrictive Covenant for the Armory, which I received today from Attorney Tarby. I reviewed it again regarding changes requested by the City Council. In my opinion, this final version is in proper form.

 

Regards, Ellen Callahan Doucette, City Solicitor

 

Appearing for the petitioner was Attorney Joseph R. Tarby, Murtha Cullina LLP, 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801 and he stated that he has not spoken directly with the petitioner but that he believes the covenant is in a form that the petitioner would sign, that the covenant has to be enacted by May 10, 2013 or it would be terminated, that he would recommend to the petitioner that the petitioner sign the covenant, that the covenant would then be recorded and filed with the City Clerk, that there may not be need for additional committee work, that the covenant would be effective once the Mayor signs, and that the date of May 10th is arbitrary and could be changed. Alderman Gately stated that there is not a full City Council at this meeting and that six votes would be required to adopt the ordinance. Alderman Anderson stated that the petitioner has not advised as to whether he will sign the covenant, that the matter will be delayed due to this reason, that if the Mayor does not sign the covenant quickly then there would be a zoning change with no covenant, and that the reason this matter is being further delayed is waiting for action by the petitioner. PUBLIC COMMENTS: Mark Sanborn 12 Caulfield Road stated that he does not like the covenant as it can be easily broken, that if the property is sold another entity could break the covenant, that he does not see a reason for the covenant, that the first plan offered by the petitioner did not require a covenant, and that this process has been ongoing for four or five years. Lisa Roche, 5 Myrtle Street stated that she has not seen the covenant, that she is not in support of the zoning change as this would be all businesses uses and the property could be developed all the way to her property line, that the neighborhood has to be protected, and something needs to be done. Motion made and 2nd that the PUBLIC HEARING be CONTINUED TO THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE CITY COUNCIL ON MAY 7,

2013, 8 in favor, 0 opposed, 1 absent (Gaffney absent).

MOTIONS, ORDERS AND RESOLUTIONS:

 

RESOLVED Whereas the Mayor and City Council have discussed providing more expansive technological support to City Hall and municipal departments; and

 

Whereas technology continues to play a larger and more complex role in the day to day operations of the City of Woburn and its schools; and

 

Whereas the Woburn Public School system already has five Full Time Management Information System employees that handle the software, hardware and networking needs of students, teachers and the school department; and

 

Whereas the creation of one citywide department would ensure we are not duplicating duties within the city and could lead to efficiencies and costsavings for our city;

 

Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the City Council that we encourage the Mayor, School Committee and Superintendent of Schools to consider developing one citywide department to meet the software, hardware and networking needs of the school department and other municipal departments.

 

s/Alderman Haggerty and President Denaro

 

Alderman Haggerty stated that the intention of the Resolution is to save some taxpayer dollars, that there are opportunities to combine school and city functions for savings, that an example is the Parks Department now maintains the school grounds but did not in the past, that technology will continue to grow in importance, that the community will continue to rely on technology, that the Mayor submitted a proposal for $89,000.00 to fund a position last year which was not approved, that there is agreement that technology improvements are necessary, that this is not in the form of an Order, that the intention is to start the discussion on the issue, and that this should also be sent to the School

Committee and Superintendent of Schools as a communication. Alderman Haggerty offered a copy of the School Department educational technology budget for review. Motion made and 2nd that the document be received and made part of the record, 8 in favor, 0 opposed, 1 absent (Gaffney absent). Alderman Raymond stated that the

Resolution might be outside the scope and authority of the City Council, that he worked on a proposal that would combine the maintenance of the school and city buildings, that there were concerns as to whether the schools or the city would have oversight of the petition, and that he supports the concept but that it may be the responsibility of the Mayor to work on this with the School Department. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that the concept of combining the efforts of the departments makes sense. Alderman Drapeau stated that he support the decision to suggest this proposal to handle technology issues, that the technology issues are currently handled by city personnel who have other duties as well, that this method limits the staff from attending to their own duties as well, that he also supported a maintenance proposal for the schools and city to combine their efforts, that this concept has been adopted in many communities, that the proposal eliminates duplication, that the City Council will not be part of the discussion, and that they have to hope that the Mayor and School Committee will work on this issue. Motion made and 2nd that the RESOLVE be ADOPTED, AS AMENDED with the amendment as follows: 1. That a copy of the Resolution be sent as a communication to the School Committee and the Superintendent of School, 8 in favor, 0 opposed, 1 absent (Gaffney absent). Presented to the Mayor April 18, 2013 and ten days having elapsed without same being approved, said Resolution became effective without his signature on April 30, 2013.
