Joe Mercurio for Mayfield Heights City Council
Improving property values is one of the main goals Mercurio would like to achieve if re-elected to council. “I would like to try and maintain or improve our property values by expanding our home inspection program,” he said, noting, he would like start inspecting backyards of homes when front yards are inspected, as well as start inspecting interiors of homes every five to 10 years.
He would like to work on implementing landlords to submit background checks when new tenants move into rental property, as well as having the building department educate landlords in the proper screening of tenants.
Mercurio is also focus on economic development for the city.
He said he is “passionate about our city and I am excited about the positive direction in which the city is moving,” and has the experience to make good business decisions in the city.
