Message from the Mayor
September greetings! Thank you for wearing your masks, maintaining social distance and taking necessary precautions to stop the spread of COVID19! Because of your diligence Ohio has moved from the red COVID warning level to the orange warning level. This does not mean we stop taking precautions, but it does mean we are moving in the right direction! Keep it up!
I want to thank the many residents who have stepped up to help our community during the pandemic. Recently, Euclid’s Faith in the City made COVID testing available here in Euclid and provided a care package of information and personal care items to participants. Euclid Senior Programs provided a free hot meal in partnership with Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging, Gordon Food Service and Edwins. In addition to its regular food distribution, the Euclid Hunger Center has provided free produce giveaways. The City recently provided Food Assistance grants to 5 agencies to expand their food service programs to our residents. For these and the many everyday examples of residents and businesses helping each other – I thank you and am truly grateful for the shared sense of community responsibility!
There are 2 very important things I am asking you to do – if you have not already done them:
- Complete the 2020 Census. There is less than 30 days left. You can complete it online at 2020census.gov or by phone at 844-330-2020. Make sure you are counted – important funding and community programs depends on the results!
- Register to vote or update your voter registration if you have moved. Election Day is November 3, voter registration is available through October 5th. Your vote matters!
I am excited to participate in our next community mural project sponsored by Keep Euclid Beautiful and funded with a grant from Sherwin Williams. The mural is designed by Euclid resident and Cleveland School of the Arts teacher Brittany Quinn with the message “Discover the U and I in Euclid.” This public art project will take place on Babbitt Rd. the weekend of September 26th – if you want to be part of this “Do Beautiful Things” project, call 216-289-2786.
I have been noticing an increase in the amount of litter throughout the community. This is our home - we all need to have pride in our community! If we all do our part, it will make a difference. Please help by committing to the following:
- Do not litter – only place garbage in appropriate containers
- Teach your children / grandchildren not to litter
- Pick up in front of your house, your business or on your street
- Volunteer with Keep Euclid Beautiful for a community pick-up
- Join Keep Euclid Beautiful to help plan beautification efforts
I truly appreciate the Euclid Observer for bringing current news to our residents. COVID has made it difficult to get the paper in resident’s hands and we regularly hear that people do not know what is happening– so we are working to be able to provide the Euclid Observer to each resident through the mail. Watch your mailbox in October for the latest edition!
