Cleveland City Council holds its last regular meeting tonight before the start of summer recess, and elements of Mayor Jackson’s development plans will get a hearing during a long committee session beforehand.

Among the bills on deck for city council are Jackson’s plans for infrastructure improvements along routes to school, a contract with the Peacemaker’s Alliance to reduce violence and $1 million for home renovations. 

Also on the committee agenda is the plan to turn over jail operations to Cuyahoga County, and to sell the city police headquarters building. 

A resolution will be introduced supporting the Paris Climate Accord from which the president has withdrawn the United States.  

It’s likely much of that agenda will go to a vote tonight. And council will be trying something new: according to a news release, two interpreters will be on hand to translate the proceedings into Spanish.
