And in Bay ... East met West
It was the hottest, the most humid, and a very stormy night in Bay. I know it sounds like the beginning of an Edgar Allan Poe story, but on Aug. 26, 82 to 100 residents (not everyone signed in) from Wards 1 and 4, and other wards, came together. Despite the weather, Bay’s Community House was buzzing!
Folks came to listen to Tom Henderson (Ward 4) and me, Dave Tadych (Ward 1). We also were proud to welcome County Representative for District 1, Dave Greenspan. We had stories, announcements, slides, tax explanations, city ideas and improvements, business changes, Ward information and pending Council legislation, along with Avon Lake’s new white-tailed deer legislation on the agenda for review. And review we did.
Residents came with comments about our wards, along with all-encompassing city questions and problems to review – all of that in the unbelievable heat and humidity of the evening. We had homemade baked goods, cold lemonade and door prizes, and we met for two hours. Time very well spent.
Tom and I want to publicly thank Tara Wendell of the Westlake | Bay Village Observer for her well-written article in the Sept. 3 issue of our “East Meets West” wards meeting. Additionally, we want to thank our constituents for their support and interest in us and the city and invite them to maintain that interest in the months and years ahead.
Thank you for your responsiveness.
