Mayor’s Report

As businesses are opening back up and we are slowly getting back to our lives and daily routines we are no longer requiring visitors to City Hall to wear masks.  Please be courteous if someone asks you to wear a mask or is wearing a mask and remember to maintain social distance.

We are still working with First Energy regarding our power outages.  First Energy completed a circuit inspection, they found broken insulators.  The insulators have been repaired.  A First Energy representative will be attending the July 13th council meeting.  If you have any questions, please send them to me by June 25th ([email protected]) or make time to attend the July 13th council meeting.  As First Energy continues to update the city, we will update our residents.

The Fire Department had 109 calls for service in April.  The newest member, Firefighter/Paramedic Duplaga will be sworn in on June 22nd.  Fire Department training included EMS drills, electrical hazards and an Extrication Drill.  The department is still tracking active COVID cases in the city. 

The Police Departments newest member Officer Harris is in phase II of his training and Officer Osap has finished his training.  The department will begin using body cameras as ongoing training continues. The Police Department began enforcing the overnight parking ban April 1, 2021.

Our Service Department has been busy preparing for the summer season.  Our new playground at City Hall will be open soon and the new pavilion is a nice place to have lunch or dinner.  Charcoal grills are being installed for cooking out.  The pavilion is open to everyone and no reservations are required.
