Ward 3 Quick Update April 19, 2016

Ward 3 Resident,

Just two quick things to update you on.

NEORSD Storm Water Program Agreement & Workshop
City Council tonight approved the agreement with the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD) to include the entire city in their Storm Water Program making them responsible for maintaining about 21 miles of waterways that are here in our city. As a result of this agreement more storm water projects can be addressed throughout our city. 75% of funds collected from the program will go towards regional projects that can help our city and we can apply for. Most importantly 25% of those funds stay here in North Royalton and can be used to address smaller scale storm water projects. The goal of the program is to address flooding, erosion, and poor water quality across northeast Ohio. There are a number of ways for residents to get discounts off their bill for doing things like rain gardens, reducing impervious surfaces, vegetated filter strips, and more. Also residents who have a home owners association that maintains a detention or retention basin may qualify for additional discounts. Seniors and those with income based concerns there are additional programs that may be available to possibly help reduce costs too. Click Here to view some of these discounts available. I encourage all businesses and residents in Ward 3 to attend the public NEORSD Workshop April 25th at 7pm at City Hall 14600 State Rd., North Royalton, OH 44133 where you can learn more about the program and ways to get discounts to save money. If you have any questions feel free to contact me as well.

Spring Cleaning Help for Seniors

If you know of any seniors in your neighborhood who could use some help cleaning up their yard. Please email me at ward3@northroyalton.org or call me at 440-785-4240 with their information by April 24th. I may be able to get them some assistance from some volunteers with their spring cleaning. Thanks!

Have a great week!
