Reporter’s Notebook: Berea City Council

The council discussed Ordinance 2-2 regarding Ohio’s fire code; this ordinance was passed. The council suspended the 3-reading rule because Ohio did not adopt the 2017 fire code and has been using the 2011 fire code. By suspending the 3-reading rule, Ohio adopted the 2017 code instead of the 2011 code. The 2024 fire code has language that allows for automatic implementation and replacing the 2017 code with the 2024 code.  

 The council read three other ordinances. The first ordinance is a 2024 update to the Ohio building code. The second ordinance would allow the administration to accept a $43,000 grant from the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council. That grant money will be used within the city to increase infrastructure energy efficiency. The last ordinance concerns the resurfacing of Bagley Road. A federal fund of 4 million dollars would be allocated towards that project if it is passed after three readings. This project would start in the 2026-2027 fiscal year.  

It was reported that 80 percent of the Bryant Street sewer has been completed; once it is fully connected to other sewers, that project will be completed. It is expected that the Route 237 project should be done by late spring or early fall. Front Street is expected to be completed later this year or next.  

The council discussed the issue residents have brought up about road blockages during school drop-off and pick-up hours on Bonds Parkway down Eastland. Suggestions for mitigating this issue included new signage, continuing traffic enforcement, working with the Home Owners Association and talking to the Police Chief about an increase in enforcement.
