A Note from RITA

RITA (Regional Income Tax Agency) recently mailed letters to taxpayers that neglected to file a municipal income tax return for their municipality.

Taxpayers can simply e-file returns at:, mail or fax to RITA the documents listed on the non-filing letter.

Attn: Compliance Department 198
Regional Income Tax Agency
PO BOX 470538
Broadview Heights, OH 44147-0538 OR Faxing to: 440-922-3510

Please do not submit documents directly to any of RITA's offices, to any specific individual at RITA or to any address or fax number that you may use for other RITA correspondence as this will result in a delay in processing of the documents and could also result in the taxpayer receiving an unnecessary subpoena.

From Mayor Doug Davidson

Dear Kirtland Residents,

I hope you take a moment to visit the Kirtland Area Veterans Memorial the next time you visit City Hall or the Kirtland Public Library. The memorial is still neatly kept this fall with the help of The Garden Club of Kirtland and some key volunteers. On a signboard within the memorial is a list of 24 Kirtland area service members on active duty in all branches of the service. It's not an all-inclusive list and if you have a name to add, please contact the Mayor's office and we will add it to the next update.

One of the names that is not on the list, but should be, is recent KHS graduate Jonathan Miller. Jonathan recently graduated 7th in a recruit class of 560 trainees at Naval Station Great Lakes. My friends and I recently had the privilege of going to lunch with Jonathan just off base. Best of luck to Jonathan as he nears completion of an intensive Diver Preparation Course at Great Lakes and continues on to Panama City, Fl for further training. My hat is off to all our residents who continue to serve.

In other updates, the city was not awarded funding from the ODOT Active Transportation Grant for a new pedestrian crosswalk. There were $6 million dollars in requests for $1.7 million in available funding. We are near completion on a warrant study which will show where the best location is for a crosswalk, and the administration has identified an additional grant opportunity through NOACA (Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency) for which we will also apply.

The Service Department completed one phase of the recreation park road, by widening the road and installing posts to define the pedestrian walkway, keeping the kids separated from the cars. The Service Department located the posts, which were a remnant of the Interstate 271 project, for three dollars each and incorporated them into the design. The "North Slope Stabilization and Culvert Extension" portion of the project remains with the Lake County Engineer at present.

Best Regards from City Hall,
Mayor Doug Davidson
