Council Update

Highlights from Council Meetings
Some highlights from the City Council Meetings for April. Council passed Ordinance 15-44, an ordinance authorizing the Mayor to enter into a lease/purchase agreement for three 2016 International single-axle dump trucks for the Service Department that will be used year round. In the winter, they will be used for snow plowing and the rest of the year for various city projects. Read More. Council also approved Ordinances 15-49 and Ordinance 15-51 to increase the number of seasonal part-time employees for the service and waste water departments to maximize productivity during these peak construction months this summer in the city.

City Update

Economic Development Along Royalton Rd.
More economic development is coming soon to the town center district. Local resident Dean Asimes and owner of the Norwood Group, is developing the site at 6285 Royalton Rd. near the entrance to Pine Forest Apartments for a four unit, 7,200-square-foot retail center. Currently there are no tenants signed up as of yet, but the goal is to have all four occupying the building by fall or sooner. Which would include a restaurant. The project is expected to be completed tentatively by the end of July. Read More.

Vacation Safety Tip
If you are headed out of town for a vacation make sure that you or your children do not announce it on various social media outlets.  Avoid posting pictures of your vacation until you are back home.  Consider putting indoor lights and a radio or television on a timer so that they come on at times when you are usually home in the evening.  If you have a trusted neighbor let them know you are going to be out of town and ask them to keep an eye on your home.  You can always contact the North Royalton Police Department at 440-237-8686 and request a vacation watch at your residence when you are going to be out of town.  If you see something out of the ordinary or a suspicious person in your neighborhood you should immediately report it to the North Royalton Police Department non-emergency number at 440-237-8686.
