Bob Mastrangelo for Highland Heights City Council ward 3
“Cuyahoga County is encouraging communities to consider consolidation of (emergency call/dispatch) centers from the current level of 45 down to 4 regional call centers within the next 10 years,” he said. “Rather than take a wait-and-see position, I would like our city to actively pursue consolidation with surrounding communities so that we will be in a better position to influence the character of the new regional call center.”
He would also like to save on expenses to the city, especially waste collection, with education program and recycling containers for all residents, as well as updating the website to allow residents more access to information.
Mastrangelo said he has seen the city grow throughout the years, and will continue to “improve community life, thoughtfully promote economic development and manage our assets wisely particularly given the current environment of reduced county and state funding.”
