Chagrin Valley Dispatch Center Selected for
Public Safety Leadership Award
Cleveland – The Association of Public Safety Communication Officials (APCO), a national 9-1-1 industry organizational leader, has awarded Chagrin Valley Council of Governments their Public Safety Communications Technology Leadership – Small Agency Award.
Read the full announcement...
“Only a limited number of honors are awarded to 9-1-1 agencies, said Cuyahoga County Executive Budish, “and it’s great that our consolidated dispatch in Cuyahoga County received this recognition. We continue to work together to provide safe, effective services to our residents, and the citizens of our region reap the benefits of working together, of more efficient safety collaborations and equipment for the municipalities within Cuyahoga County”.
The Chagrin Valley Dispatch Center is a state-of-the-art emergency dispatching agency that serves members of the Chagrin Valley Council of Governments. Member agencies include: Bentleyville, Chagrin Falls Village, Chagrin Falls Township, Euclid, Gates Mills, Highland Hills, Hunting Valley, Moreland Hills, North Randall, Orange Village, South Russell and Woodmere.
“This award is a testament to the steps Cuyahoga County has taken to consolidate 9-1-1 dispatch centers, which have been vital towards regional collaboration with our local communities” added Cuyahoga County Councilman Michael J. Gallagher. “We will continue to work with the County Executive and our municipal leaders to ensure the public safety needs of our residents are met.”
“Change can bring about heightened levels of anxiety, especially when it comes to changes in the way we handle our emergency services,” said Chagrin Falls Fire Chief Frank Zugan. “In this case, however, I can attest that the changes have provided tremendous upgrades in the level of services and quality of dispatching. It’s been a win for residents and a win for the police officers and firefighters.”
Branch chipping is now complete. The next available date is July 27th.
Branches should not be placed roadside any more than a few days before July 27th. However branches must be out by Sunday July 26th. The Service Department makes one complete pass through the village starting on the scheduled date and ending once we make the complete pass.
Branches placed out to early or too late must be removed by the resident.

Enhanced Exterior Maintenance Inspection Program
With spring just around the corner, Orange Village
will soon begin conducting its exterior maintenance
inspection program. In response to recent survey
results indicating a growing concern for the decline in
property upkeep throughout the community, the building
department will be stepping up its property maintenance enforcement.
and Zoning Inspector will drive through the community and evaluate the condition
of properties via a site inspection from the street. Exterior areas of all properties shall be kept free of any
objects, materials or conditions which may create a health, accident or fire hazard or adversely affect the
value of surrounding properties: including but not limited to such objects, materials or conditions as peeling
paint or bare untreated exterior surfaces, broken or dilapidated fences, decks, porches and accessory
structures, missing or broken windows and doors, unlicensed or immovable vehicles, and/or collections
of junk, rubbish or debris outside dwelling structures. If the inspector sees any violations of the Village’s
Ordinances, he will document the violation then prepare a first notice letter to the property owner. Property
owners will then have ten (10) days to contact Tom Shields, our Housing and Zoning Inspector, with either a
plan to correct the violation(s) or with a statement of intent to appeal the violation(s). If the property owner
does not contact the Housing and Zoning Inspector within the designated time specified in the letter, they
will be expected to correct the listed violation(s) within thirty (30) days of the date of the initial violation letter.
A follow-up inspection will be made after 30 days. If the owner has corrected the violation(s), the file will
be closed. However, if the violation(s) still exists the Inspector will generate a second and final violation
ticket. If the property owner refuses to cooperate with the Housing and Zoning inspector (or the Building
Commissioner) and does not file an appeal, the matter will be turned over to the Village Prosecutor to
proceed with legal action. A list of the violations, including the ordinance number
that the inspector will be looking at can be found on the Village Website under
the building tab.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Housing and Zoning
Inspector Tom Shields at 440-287-5134 or Building Commissioner Dave Strichko
