Kettering, Ohio – The Kettering City Council will meet on December 7, 2021, at the Kettering Government Complex, 3600 Shroyer Road, Kettering. Normally Council meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.  But in December Council is meeting on the  1stand 2nd  Tuesday because of the holiday season. Council will hold a special Budget Workshop in the Deeds Room that will begin at 5:30 P.M., which is a half-hour earlier than Council’s normal workshop meeting time. Council will then hold its Regular meeting at 7:30 P.M. in Council Chambers.

Council will begin the December 7th regular meeting by considering the appointment of Student Liaison Miranda Stidham to the Board of Community Relations for a term that will run until May 31, 2022.

In regular business, Council will consider the “Second Reading” of an Ordinance to amend Chapter 478 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Kettering. If passed by Council, this Ordinance would allow the operation of shared mobility devices within the City of Kettering.

Council will also consider the “First Reading of an Ordinance regarding personnel matters for City employees. The Ordinance would repeal Ordinance No. 4365-21 and enact new provisions regarding position classifications, compensation, pay schedules, conditions of work, and supplemental benefits. Since this Ordinance is in “First Reading”, Council will not be able to vote on it at the December 7th meeting.

Council is also scheduled to consider 4 Resolutions on the 7th. Council will consider a Resolution that would direct the Finance Director to allocate an additional $500,000 from the General Fund for Economic Development.

Council will also consider a Resolution that would approve a contract with the Miami Valley Fair Housing Center for the center to operate the City’s Fair Housing Program. The resolution says that the estimated cost of the contract is $34,000 and that there are $34,000 available for the contract.

There is also a Resolution before Council that would authorize mutual cooperation agreements between the City of Kettering and Day Air Credit Union. These agreements would permit the two organizations to partner for the operation of a first time homeowner program and a home improvement assistance program. The City is planning to fund the program with $1,000,000 from Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (ARPA Funds). The City and Day Air Credit Union want to partner for the program because the U.S. Department of the Treasury awarded Day Air Rapid Response Program Grant funds that can also be used to operate the homeowner and home improvement programs.

The Final resolution would authorize the transfer of $40,000 from the General Fund, $90,000 from the State Highway Construction and Maintenance Fund, and $1,000,000 from the American Rescue Plan Act Fund.

Both the workshop meeting and the regular Council meeting are open to the public. The regular Council meeting will also be broadcast on Government Channel 6 on Spectrum Cable.
