Service Department Adds Four New Trucks to Winter Fleet

Congratulations to Service Director, Don Kerniskey, who was able to negotiate the purchase of four, very lightly used, snow plows from Concord Township. Instead of the one new plow that had been originally budgeted, the City was able to upgrade its entire fleet for a cost less than the amount allocated for the single new truck. These new additions are all very lightly used with mileage less than 45,000 miles per truck.

Residents can look forward to safer streets this winter thanks to the efforts of Richmond Heights' new Service Director.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Community Recycling Awareness Grant

Grants totaling $161,311 were awarded to 33 communities and 13 schools and non-profit organizations in Cuyahoga County. Grants will be used to establish recycling and composting programs in schools and workplaces, purchase recycling containers for public spaces, conduct shred events, and educate residents about curbside recycling via brochures, videos, and mailers. These grants programs were created by the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District to help promote and expand recycling in the county. Grants are awarded annually, on a competitive basis. Applications are due in February each year.
Last year, thirty-eight Cuyahoga County communities received a Community Recycling Awareness Grant which enabled them to collectively distribute recycling information to over 208,500 households, conduct 39 shred days that generated 220.45 tons of paper, and purchase 119 public recycling containers.

Richmond Heights was the recipient of $4637 which will be utilized for funding 2 shred days (May 9, 2015 & September 26, 2015), 40 cases of recycle bags (available to residents now at City Hall in the Recreation Department) and newspaper ads to publicize the shred day events.

Promoting Safer Schools
People can anonymously report suspicious activity in schools through state tip line

"If you SEE Something, SEND Something!"

More than 450 Ohio schools, including some locally, have signed up for Ohio's new SaferOH tip line, launched in January 2015 to give students, parents and teachers an anonymous way to report school safety concerns.

Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) will be answered by analysts in Ohio Homeland Security's Threat Assessment and Prevention Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit will immediately forward the information to the school's designated personnel and to local police, if necessary.
