Cleveland Heights Needs an Elected, Full-time Mayor
Currently, Cleveland Heights has a part-time mayor who is selected by city council from among its members. Under this form of government, the mayor has no executive authority and no presence in City Hall during working hours.
An Elected, Full-time Mayor Would Be:
- Accountable to the voters
- Visible in the community and region as the city’s leader and spokesperson
- Decisive in seizing opportunities to move our community forward
- Available to work with neighborhoods, businesses and developers
- Responsive to all citizens, ensuring city hall staff are also more responsive
To amend the Cleveland Heights charter so that voters can directly elect a mayor who leads the city as its chief executive officer.
