Change Coming for County Government/Cleveland City Council

Posted Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Tweet

The Commission on Cuyahoga County Government Reform recommends turning several county elective offices into appointed offices and slightly retooling the Board of Commissioners so that one commissioner would have the additional responsibility of overseeing the budget process and making key appointments. The reform commission completed its work last week, sending its recommendations to the legislature for approval. Once that’s done, the new structure would be presented to the voters. We’ll also talk with the president of Cleveland City council about a charter amendment that will result in a downsizing for council next year. Join the discussion at 9:00 a.m.




Judy Rawson, former Mayor of Shaker Heights
Stanley Miller, executive director, Cleveland chapter NAACP
Bruce Akers, Mayor of Pepper Pike
Martin Sweeney, president, Cleveland City Council
