**Service Department Weekend Snow Removal Plan**
The Village of
Moreland Hills Service Department has inspected and prepared the snow removal
fleet for the snow event that has been forecast for this weekend. Crews will closely
monitor the snow event and, if needed, crews will work around the clock throughout
the snow event to keep roadways clear and safe for motorist travel. Based on
the severity of the weather forecast, residents should limit travel and utilize
extreme caution on the roadways, if the need for travel arises. Residents should also avoid parking on Village roadways.
Council members chose their leadership at the January Organizational
Meeting. They elected Dan Fritz as Council President and Paul Stanard as
Planning Commission Chair. Ted Buczek was chosen to be the second Council
member on Planning Commission. Council President Fritz appointed David Emerman
Chair of the Facilities Committee and Steve Richman Chair of the Roads and
Safety Committee. Dan Fritz will serve on Facilities and Monica Sturgis will
serve on Roads and Safety.
Council also set its meeting schedule as follows: Council
meetings will be held at 7:00 pm on the second Wednesday each month. The
exceptions are the February and October meetings which will be held one week
earlier (February 6 and October 9) due to scheduling conflicts. Planning
Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals meetings will be held on the first
Monday of every month at 6:00 pm. The exception is the September meeting which
will be held on September 9 because of Labor Day. Council Committee of the
Whole will meet at 7:00 pm on the first Wednesday of the month; this meeting is
occasionally cancelled because of lack of business and will definitely be
canceled on July 3 because of the proximity to the July 4th holiday.
Roads and Safety and Facilities Committees will meet on February 5, March 5,
April 30, June 4, August 6, September 3, October 1 and November 5 and December
3 at 8:00 and 8:30 am respectively. We occasionally cancel a committee meeting due
to a lack of business so please check with Village Hall or morelandhills.com
website before attending one of those meetings.
This winter, with the succession of freeze-thaw
cycles, has been extremely hard on the roads. The Village currently has crews
out every week patching holes in the roads. If there is a particularly
bothersome or dangerous pothole in your neighborhood, please call the Service
Department at 440.248.1188.
I am offering a heart-felt thank you to those of you
who donated to the Moreland Hills Police and Employees Foundation. As you know,
members of the Foundation collect this money throughout the year and give it to
our employees during the holidays who appreciate the money and your generosity.
It is unethical for our employees to accept a direct tip from residents, but
this organization and this procedure allows you to show your gratitude and
generosity in a legal and ethical manner. I thank you.
The Chagrin Falls Suburban Volunteer Fire Department
(CFSVFA) is a non-profit organization that has provided both Fire Protection
and Emergency Medical Services to Moreland Hills since 1934. It has been and continues
to be a cost effective regional approach for Chagrin Valley Communities to work
together to receive Emergency services. The current fire station was built in
1986 and no longer meets the needs of the department. Therefore, they started a
capital fundraising campaign in October 2017 to help finance necessary
renovations to the existing fire station. All donations are tax-deductible and
can be sent to Chief Zugan, 21 West Washington Street, Chagrin Falls, OH 44022
or you can contribute online at https://cffdfundraiser.org/.
This renovation does not benefit Chagrin Falls Village, rather, it helps our
nonprofit fire department which has outgrown its current space.
The weather has been crazy lately with incredible
winds and resulting power outages. Please do NOT dial 9-1-1 to report a power outage.
