How the City is being proactive

  • We are also encouraging community members (especially older adults and others who are more susceptible to illness) to practice social distancing as recommended by the CDC.
  • The ongoing implementation of daily cleaning procedures as recommended by the CDC, including the use of hospital-grade disinfectants proven to kill the COVID-19 virus are being used in all our buildings on a daily basis.
  • Please be assured that we are also taking the appropriate steps to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases: 
  • Building custodians and janitorial staff members wipe down high-touch surfaces such as table tops and door handles daily using disinfectant.
  • Fitness and Human Services staff wipe down all machines and hard surfaces in the Community Center and Human Services Center
  • Transportation, including all drivers, wipe down high touch car, bus/van surfaces daily. 

Moving forward, we will continue to provide staff, residents and other community partners regular updates on the CDC’s and Cuyahoga County Board of Health’s recommendations regarding this important public health issue.

Those needing assistance with their energy bills: (Cleveland.com- March 19, 2020)
AKRON, Ohio -- FirstEnergy is offering financial assistance programs for Ohio Edison customers who need help paying their heating bills.
Programs include the Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP), the Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus and the $175 Winter Reconnection Option.
HEAP options include the cash program, an annual grant that helps with heating bills, and the emergency program, which provides payments until March 31 to avoid shut-off or restore electric service. The emergency program can only be used once per heating season, which runs from mid-October through mid-April.
The Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus offers customers with a household income at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level income-based payments that are consistent year-round. To learn more about the program or apply, call 800-282-0880.
The $175 Winter Reconnect Option allows residential customers who are disconnected or being threatened with disconnection the opportunity to pay a designated amount of $175 or less to have their service restored or maintained. The option may be used once during each heating season. If a customer's service has already been disconnected, the customer must pay $175 and possibly a re-connection fee. There are no income limits for this program. To learn more about the program, call the FirstEnergy Contact Center at 800-589-3101.
Ohio Edison also offers an emergency hardship fund known as Project Reach, which is intended to help residential customers restore or maintain electric service. The program is funded by Ohio Edison customers and employees and funds are distributed by Salvation Army offices located throughout Ohio Edison's service area. To locate an agency, visit www.firstenergycorp.com/ReachAgencies.
