Annually the City of Cleveland hosts “Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime” events in each of the city’s five police districts. The goal is to engage residents and law enforcement personnel in a relaxed environment. We want youngsters to get to know the men and women who are tasked with protecting them and to begin to see them as a friend and a resource.
It is also meant as an opportunity for law enforcement personnel to develop relationships with residents and young people. An attempt to humanize all parties in an effort to reduce conflict and increase cooperation and confidence.
This year we are seeking to engage youth through the “Super Hero Crime Fighter Design Contest.” This contest hopes to give our young people an opportunity to create their vision of what a crime-fighting super hero looks like. The winning designs will be incorporated into a logo/design for future “Mayor’s Night Out Against Crime” events. Below you will find the rules and regulations for the contest. Hard copies of this information will be available at City of Cleveland Recreation Centers, and Cleveland City Hall Room 6. For more information please call 216-664-3447.

Join Cleveland Public Power in celebrating Public Power Week by taking a morning bicycle ride through downtown Cleveland!
Over the last few years, biking has really gained momentum in Cleveland, and in an effort to showcase our town and highlight the benefits of bicycling CPP invites the public to join in on the fun!
The ride will provide great exercise. an intimate tour of downtown Cleveland and it has the potential to generate enough power to light a home for a month!
You see if we can get 600 riders travelling at 10 mph, that physical power, when converted into kilowatt-hours, would power a home. Just a cool tidbit to shoot for!
So gather up your friends and join us for a ride around town. The ride will conclude at our Public Power Week Open House, held at 1300 Lakeside Avenue. Refreshments will be served and you can learn how Cleveland Public Power has brought electricity into Cleveland home and businesses for 110 years!
For more information, give us a call at 216-664-3922. Register below:
Everyone knows what a “Bucket Truck” is, but this particular truck in the photograph is called a Line Truck, and we use this vehicle every day. It’s primarily used to dig deep into the ground to help us set up new utility poles. Also, it assists us with lifting heavy equipment like the transformers we place at the top of your utility poles.
Not familiar with transformers? We’ll tell you a little about those in a future post.
