Council Meeting Highlights

Nov 20, 2023

Cleveland (Nov. 20, 2023) - City Council held its regular meeting tonight, both in person in Council Chambers and live streamed. The next meeting is Monday, Nov. 27th. Here are today’s highlights

Taking Care of Nuisance Property: Council approved legislation that toughens up action the city can take for properties declared a “public nuisance.” The current authority allows for boarding up and demolition of the unsafe structures on the premises. The new ordinance will allow for an expanded ability to contract for repair of the property conditions that constitute the nuisance. Owners will be billed for the repair work. These actions will be undertaken by the Director of Building and Housing. Ord. No. 1022-2023

Eagle Avenue Lift Bridge to be Demolished: Council gave consent to the Ohio Department of Transportation to demolish and remove the Eagle Avenue lift bridge over the Cuyahoga River. The city will provide a local share of $752,061 for the demolition. The Eagle Avenue Lift Bridge was inspected in 2022, and preliminary engineering indicated full removal of the structure was required due to failure of its vertical elements. The entire cost for the demolition and removal is nearly $3.3 million. Ord. No. 1088-2023
