Ward 3 Quick Update: April 27, 2018

Ward 3 Resident,

The opioid epidemic is something we are battling throughout our country, state, county, and even here in our own community. Often folks get addicted first to left over pain medication that were legally prescribed to them. This weekend you can help make a difference in the fight against the opioid or drug epidemic by safely disposing your unused medications at this weekend’s Medication Take Back Day this Saturday. See flyer below for more information. If you are unable to make the event, the North Royalton Police Station has a Medication Drop Off Box in their lobby where you can also safety dispose your unused medications 24/7 at your own convenience too. Thank you in advance for your willingness to help make a difference with this important issue!


Have a great weekend!

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

The groundhog saw his shadow which means six more weeks of winter. Looking outside I think he may be right unfortunately. City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.


FYI on our Salt Reserves

Effective February 9th, the City of North Royalton has enacted road salt conservation measures due to Cargill Salt not being able to keep up with production due to the number of snowstorms throughout the Midwest. Hills, intersections and school zones will remain a priority during this conservation period. Please Click Here for an explanation from Cargill Salt. As always, please exercise extra caution while driving during the remainder of Winter. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: December 2017

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends! About 11 more days till Christmas! As we approach the end of 2017, things remain relatively busy in City Government with much to update you on below.

Thank You
I just like to take a moment and thank you the residents for recently re-electing me in the November 7th General Election to serve another two-year term on City Council. Theodore Roosevelt once said, “this country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.” This quote sums up my core mission as a city councilman to make both our ward and city a better place for all our families to live together. It is my greatest honor to continue to serve the over 5,500 residents that call North Royalton Ward 3 home and being their voice on city council. In January I will be officially sworn in for my third elected term on City Council. I look forward to continuing to serve Ward 3!

Special Announcement

The First Family of North Royalton Ward 3 we were extra thankful this past Thanksgiving! My wife Marissa and I with the help of Henry and Missy recently made a special announcement that our family will be expanding in May of 2018! Thank you to all those who have offered their congratulations! It so great to raise our family here in this great community with all of you!

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from my family to yours!

Council Update

Highlights from Council Meetings
Some highlights from the City Council Meetings for November. Council approved Ordinances 17-118,17-119, and 17-120 confirming the Mayor’s appointment of a new police officer and firefighter/paramedics. Read More. Council also approved Ordinance 17-134, 17-135, and 17-136

granting easements for the Route 82 road improvement project. Read More. Council approved Ordinance 17-137 that authorizes the City of Cleveland, Division of Water to reduce the sewer charge for all users that are connected to the North Royalton Consolidated Sanitary Sewer District, but don’t have water meters that show actual water consumption. Currently, those users are charged 2.5 mcf per quarter, totaling 10 mcf per year.  The rate is based on the recent rate study, this legislation reduces the amount to 40 mcf per month, totaling 4.8 mcf per year.  This change will take effective on January 1, 2018. Read More.

2018 Budget Update
City Council has been reviewing the 2018 City Budget. Once again it is very conservative and solid balanced budget. The Budget is on Third Reading Consideration and will get approved at the December 19th Council Meeting. Read More.

City Update

Chippewa Creek Headwater Trail Project
The Chippewa Creek Headwater Trail project is almost completed and expected to be ready by the end of year for people to use. In the spring there will be a formal opening. Read More.

Ohio Turnpike Sound Wall Project
Our City was awarded an almost $1 million grant from ODOT through the Turnpike Mitigation Program.  Our City elected to “pool” their grant with 3 other communities that were also awarded grants for Sound Walls along the Ohio Turnpike to get a better pricing package.  Great Lakes Construction was awarded the project and the walls are now complete. The walls start near Bennett Road and end near York Road along the north side of the Ohio Turnpike.

EMS Levy Passes
The EMS Levy passed on the November 7th General Election ballot. Thank you for your support of this vital emergency service for our community! Read More.

Sewer Rate Study
City Council has been reviewing the results of the five-year sewer rate study and has legislation pending based off recommendations for restructuring the rates. I believe the legislation before City Council will help reduce costs for seniors, those on a fixed income, well-water users and provide a fairer system for our rates for all, while keeping North Royalton’s sewer rates one of the lowest compared to other cities in our area that tack on additional charges that most aren’t aware of.

St. Matthew Church Fire
Last month St. Matthew’s Church on Albion Road here in Ward 3 had a bad fire and will take a year to rebuild. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the parishioners of St Matthews Church during this difficult time. Luckily no one was hurt. Thank you to the North Royalton Fire Department and additional departments that responded to put the fire out. Learn More. If you like to make a donation to help with the rebuilding efforts below is the fundraising page that has been setup to help the church Click Here to learn more about that effort.

Snow Parking Ban Reminder
Since winter has arrived. Here is a reminder about snow parking bans and where to find out if one is in effect. A snow parking ban pertains to all city streets is not cancelled until a North Royalton Police Department supervisor deems all roads safe and clear, which typically occurs after snow plow operations have been completed. Violators of the snow parking ban are subject to parking citations and/or impoundment of their vehicles. If you like to find out if a snow parking ban is in place you can check out the NRPD Facebook page. You can also see updates in the Facebook and Twitter feed portions of my website’s homepage at www.danlangshaw.com


Ward 3 Recycling Tip of the Month
Do not place holiday lights (tanglers) in your curbside recycling. Tanglers, including holiday lights and power cords, cannot be recycled in your home recycling bin and will cause problems and shut-downs at the local recycling facility. During the Christmas season, retailers including Home Depot and Lowe’s Home Improvement have collection bins for holiday lights. Check at your local store. Christmas Light Source and Holiday LEDs also offer recycling and rebate programs for strings of lights. Recycle your broken, burned out strings of lights, power strips and power cords during the District’s holiday lights recycling program. The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District accepts strands of lights (holiday lights and other strands) at its facility located at 4750 East 131 Street in Garfield Heights. Drop off in their lobby during business hours M-F 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. The recycling program runs December 1-January 15. No bags or boxes in the recycling bin, please. Place items loose in our lobby drop box and take all bags, boxes and containers home with you. Artificial trees are not accepted. Materials collected are recycled by a local Cleveland company.
