Dear Congressman Gonzalez, Senator Portman, & Senator Brown:

Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution says that [The Congress shall have the power] “to establish Post Offices and Post Roads”. Even more important two centuries since Benjamin Franklin was appointed our first Postmaster General in 1775, the United States Postal Service has grown and changed with America while providing a vital service to our entire nation could count on.

Ward 3 Quick Update: May 26, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend. Although yesterday this Memorial Day was not the normal that we are all use to due to COVID-19. We still gave pause and thanks for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great nation in our Armed Forces. Whether they fell in the Revolutionary War or the Global War on Terrorism and every war in between. They paid the ultimate price for the freedom we all enjoy today. We honored them unfortunately without the normal public ceremonies, but with private or virtual ones. President Trump even ordered all flags to half-staff this weekend to also mourned and honor the over 100,000 Americans who have lost their lives to COVID-19.

As our city, state, and country continue to reopen due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus is still among us. Please continue following safety measures below to keep yourself and others safe from further spread of COVID-19: Stay at least six feet from others at all times; Avoid crowded areas; Wear a cloth face covering to protect yourself and others; Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; and Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to use if soap and water are not available.

Since my last update, Governor Mike DeWine has ordered additional business re-openings, and some additional items locally I like to give you a quick update on.

Have a great rest of the week!

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: May 2020

Greetings Ward 3 Resident,Hope all the mothers here in Ward 3 had a Happy Mother’s Day! We all don’t like this random snow. But is great to see the flowers starting to bloom and our state start the process of re-opening slowly but safely as we still combat this COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the virus is still all around us and will continue to be something we will still have to deal with for the next several months or more. Current COVID-19 totals from the Ohio Department of Health are: 24,777 confirmed case; 4,413 hospitalizations; 1,357 deaths; 209,153 tested; and there are confirmed COVID-19 cases in all 88 counties throughout our state. Here in Cuyahoga County, the current COVID-19 totals from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health are: 1,540 confirmed cases;  age range 1 week to 101 years old for confirmed cases; 104 deaths; and 87-143 confirmed COVID-19 cases for our area in the 44133 zip code. So even as the current stay at home order is lifted come May 29th. Please continue to wear a face-covering or mask in public, use social distancing, and proper hygiene to help eliminate the spread of COVID-19 in our community! Even how tough things have been. I am so proud of how brave, patient, and caring you all have been to help our fellow neighbors and local businesses struggling as a result of COVID-19! Every day there seems to be new COVID-19 news we get bombarded with. So, I wanted to update you on some key COVID-19 news that you should be aware of since my last update and return back to a little more to my normal monthly updates on what is going on in your city government. So apologize this may be longer than my normal updates but just wanted to make sure I keep you in the loop.

Ward 3 E-Newsletter: April 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

We are living in unusual times and the next two weeks or more we may lose more Americans than 9/11. So as much as I like to give you my normal Monthly Ward 3 E-Newsletter I won’t be able too. I will give an abbreviated version with basic things going on in City Council, City Government, and Ward 3 while continuing to provide important COVID-19 information you need to know about. I am continuing to get complaints from residents about people in our community not following the Stay at Home Order by the State of Ohio and being large groups or not practicing social distancing. If you see a large group of folks not complying with the Stay at Home Order, please contact the North Royalton Police Department when it happens at 440-237-8686. They can politely remind them of the order and get them to disburse. I was a soldier in my younger years and I was prepared to sacrifice my life for my country if necessary in the defense of my country and for my fellow battle buddies. First Responders especially doctors and nurses don’t nor should they sacrifice their lives. Who is going to care for us if we lose them? That was my responsibility and my fellow brothers and sisters in the US Military. So please #StayHome, go out for only essential things (medication, groceries, and work at an essential business etc.) #MaskUpNRWard3, and if outside use #SocialDistancing including for your children. Hang in there and we can get through this but we all must work together to fight this war on COVID-19! Given this week is Holy Week (Easer in a few days too) and if you are religious please pray for all those on the front lines battling COVID-19 like Marissa my wife and the First Lady of Ward 3 who is trying to help save lives!

#StayHome & Still Have a Happy Easter!

Dan Langshaw
Ward 3 Councilman
North Royalton City Council

PS: Due to the large volume of phone calls. I ask residents and business needing assistance, please email me at Ward3@northroyalton.org so it will be easier for me to prioritize who I need to help or direct to the appropriate resources.

Ward 3 Quick Update: March 20, 2020

Ward 3 Resident,

This COVID-19 emergency is something we ALL should take very seriously! This not business as usual! I have family, friends, and loves ones who are first-responders and medical professionals on the front-lines of this. I hear their stories daily. We MUST take this emergency seriously. Something we can all do is #StayHome as much as possible. If you must go out please use #SocialDistancing and other common-sense protective measures. Until you hear otherwise from health care officials, even if you have no symptoms to help #FlattenTheCurve of community spread of COVID-19. When looking back in history to past pandemics like the 1918 influenza pandemic the most severe pandemic in recent history. Like now they turned to proven tactics of isolation, quarantine, good personal hygiene, use of disinfectants, and limitations of public gatherings to help end the spread. I know all of you are on information overload at times. Me too! But also knowledge is power and it could even help save your life. I have been doing my best to keep up but things change on an hourly basis. So moving forward I will keep updating helpful information as a one-stop place for North Royalton Ward 3 COVID-19 Updates that include various information from all levels of government and I will focus more on adding things that residents have requested more information on like where to get carryout and etc.

Drone Legislation Withdrawn Due to Existing City Law Protections Found and Possible State Intervention on the Horizon


January 20, 2017

(North Royalton, Ohio)— The North Royalton City Council Safety Committee this week discussed Councilman Langshaw’s drone regulation legislation that would provide some basic regulations to help protect resident’s safety and privacy. Drones can do some great things and are fun for kids when used safely. However drones have become a growing topic among local governments in Northeast Ohio with cities like Cleveland, Aurora, and Cuyahoga Heights passing laws to regulate this growing technology.

As of a result of discussions in the Safety Committee, feedback from residents, and assistance from experts in Drones/UAV field. The City Law Department conducted a deeper review of the city’s existing ordinances to see if there were areas that could provide some protections to resident’s safety that drones can pose. Today January 20th Councilman Dan Langshaw announced he has officially withdrawn his proposed drone regulation legislation because the Law Department has found that the city’s existing disorderly conduct ordinance can adequately address possible issues related to drones.

Councilman Langshaw believes the discussions about this topic has been good to have as drone use increases throughout the United States. He appreciates groups like the Academy of Model Aeronautics who have reached out to provide educational materials to the Police Department on how to deal with possible issues related to drones. Langshaw has confidence that the Ohio Aerospace and Aviation Technology Study Commission that recently concluded its task of conducting a two year review of drone and UAV use in Ohio will make sound recommendations to the General Assembly on how to best to address this issue at the state level. Legislation could be on the horizon at the state level and it is best to let our representatives in the Columbus take on this issue.

For more information please contact Councilman Dan Langshaw at 440-785-4240 or ward3@northroyalton.org
