Message from Mayor Blackwell:

 

It is November, which means it is getting cold outside and the holiday season is upon us. Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Season Greetings are appropriate and I, the Mayor of Maple Heights, have been in office for almost one year!

 

This has been a year of Thanksgiving certainly. Thank you for the encouragement and support, especially to my administration, residents, and many county-wide elected officials.  This would have been a very difficult transition from a business background to a political career, but no one let it be so, you have been with me all year long, “thank you.”

 

Flying above the Libby and Granger Road bridge are business banners that read “Maple Heights a Winning City.” We chose this message to remind all crossing that bridge, residents and non-residents, that our City is moving forward aggressively, strategically and confidently. Also in a very poignant way, this administration will turn on City Christmas/Holiday lights for all to see in a representation of commitment, faith, hope and pride. This lighting ceremony at City Hall will be on Saturday, December 3rd at 6:00 p.m. where Christmas carols will be sung by several local church choirs.  Please plan on joining us for what we hope will be a magnificent evening!

We each have so much to be thankful for as well as something different to be thankful for. And this time of year is a reminder to take the time to reflect and remember how good life can be when we spend it with people we love and enjoy.  Lastly, please remember that each of us have the capability to be amazing and bring something special to all the lives and causes that we believe in and support. Thank you for believing in me and the City of Maple Heights.

 

Beginning July 2016, the stormwater fees for the Stormwater Program will appear on customer’s bills.

To help address questions on the program and residential credit opportunities, informational work-shops are being hosted across the service area this summer.  

Maple Heights Library recently performed some major renovations and is the jewel of the Cuyahoga County library system, attracting thousands of visitors each year
