Board Update

Good Afternoon:

Hope everyone is staying safe as Hurricane Sandy hits us here in Northeast, Ohio. As you know there is no school for today October 30th for the North Royalton City School District. Throughout the day our School District Administration and Maintenance Staff have been working hard to address all the leaks, flooding, power outages, and other storm related damage due to Sandy. I just like to say thank you to them for all that they are doing to get things back into operation for our students. For more information about any weather related issues or possible closures please check out the district website at www.northroyaltonsd.org

On October 25th, I held my Monthly Constituent Coffee at the Coffee Club. Special thanks to those who stopped by. I hold these monthly coffees in order to stay in touch with fellow residents and listen to their feedback. There is no appointment necessary. Simply stop by and talk to me. I will keep you posted when my next monthly coffee in November will be.

Bond Issue (Local Ballot Issue #112) Update
If you go to www.northroyaltonsd.org and open the “Bearly a Minute” window you can see various video responses to questions relating to the bond issue that are being done. A whole series of these short answers are planned to address some of the questions many of you may have.

Here is a link to some information from the Shape Our Kids Future Committee: http://www.northroyaltonsd.org/public/files/ShapingFuture.pdf

And for those of you who wanted the website for the Shape Our Kids Future Committee it can be found at: http://nrkidsfuture.com/

Many of you have been asking about my position on the bond issue or about various aspects of it. You can find my statements regarding the upcoming bond issue that I have given on the record on my website at www.danlangshaw.com or click on the links below.



A common question I get asked by constituents is how much the bond issue is going to cost home owners. Below is the cost of the proposed bond issue by home value:

$100,000 market value home – $81.27 per year

$150,000 market value home – $121.91 per year

$200,000 market value home – $162.55 per year
