From Mayor Doug Davidson

Dear Kirtland Residents,

Welcome to the summer of 2017! There are lots of activities going on in our city.

On the roads and infrastructure front I would like to recognize crew leaders Tom Coffield, Tim Rosboril, and Duane Martz of our Service Department. These gentlemen led the Eagle Road West Improvement Project effort on the ground. This expansive project encompassed the installation of drainage improvements from Waite Hill to Divine Word and paving from Waite Hill to Rt. 306. Nice Job! Kirtland benefitted from both OPWC (Ohio Public Works Commission) and Lake County Stormwater Management funds on this project.

Further North on Rt. 306, the Slope Stabilization project nears completion. The task was to eliminate the void which had developed beneath the road and secure it. This is done by using a process called "soil nailing" which was specified by the office of the Lake County Engineer. Although construction delays caused many of us some aggravation, it really was worth the wait to provide for a safe and stable road section.

The Friends of the Kirtland Public Library will be sponsoring some exciting events this summer on the Gazebo Green. You are invited to bring a blanket or chair and listen to some great music at no cost. On Wednesday July 19th, The Erie Heights Brass Ensemble will perform and on August 2nd The Killer Bs with Brian Misch and Bob Townes on guitar. Both concerts begin at 7:00pm. Local songwriter and musician Chas McPeak will entertain shoppers on August 5th during the Library Yard Sale. And the fun doesn't stop with the music as the KPL hosts Family Movie Night Under the Stars. A different classic family friendly movie can be viewed on the Gazebo Green at sundown on the 2nd Monday of July, August and September. Fun activities will start one hour before the show. Flyers for these events can be found at the Library and on the city's website

Congratulations go out to Chief Hutton and the Kirtland Fire Department for their successful efforts in capturing an Aid to Firefighter's Grant worth $73,900. The grant funds are to be used for EMS equipment including an updated CPR device. This device will be in the new McCoy-Miller Medium Duty ambulance which is now in service.

Finally, I'd like to wish you all a happy and safe 4th of July.

Best Regards from City Hall,
Mayor Doug Davidson
