Fitch Ratings, one of the three major bond rating services, this week raised its grade for Cleveland Hopkins International Airport from BBB+ to A-, a move that could help save the airport millions in coming years. Fitch’s action follows similar moves by Moody’s Investor Service and Standard & Poors Global Ratings, each of which raised the city-owned airport’s bond ratings a year ago.

As part of Mayor Frank G. Jackson's Safe Smart CLE program, existing streetlights will be replaced with new energy-efficient LED technology including adaptive control photocells.

The Mayor’s Food Basket is generously supported by individuals, local businesses and City of Cleveland employees. It is the largest annual food giveaway in Cuyahoga County and helps to feed thousands of Cleveland families each year. Volunteers are needed at three locations: Michael Zone Recreation Center on Lorain Avenue; the Cleveland Foodbank on South Waterloo Road; and the Zelma George Recreation Center on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. 

The City of Cleveland will begin its seasonal leaf pick-up program Nov. 4, 2019.

View the leaf pick-up program presentation here.
