A Message From the Mayor
It is hard to believe, but the last of summer is almost a month past and we are well into the autumn season.
For those of you with youngsters, the Village has two upcoming events especially for the children: Booville at the Bentleyville Park on Sunday, October 22nd from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. and we will hold our Third Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony at the Village Hall on Sunday, November 26th from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., with special guests Santa & Mrs. Claus. I look forward to seeing many of you at these fun events!
Leaf pick-up has begun and will continue until all the leaves are down or the Service Department has to switch over their equipment to the snowplows. They will be making their rounds in an orderly manner, so please be patient and put all leaves near the road. We ask that you or your landscapers do not put any grass clippings or branches in with the leaves. This will clog and damage the equipment, resulting in delay of your leaf pick up.
For Village residents who may need a signature on a document notarized, there are two Notary Publics available at Village Hall to assist you.
Please remember Election Day is Tuesday, November 7th. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Bentleyville has four council seats up for election. These seats are for the four year term commencing January 1, 2018. Councilmen Ryan Rubin and Ken Kvacek are on the ballot, along with Councilwoman Kathleen Esposito and newcomer Terry Hemmelgarn. Even though these candidates are running unopposed, please show your support for them by casting a vote for their election to these Council seats.
Finally many thanks to Councilman John Bourisseau for his six years of public service. John has chosen not to run for re-election, due primarily to his duties as President of the Board of Trustees of the Chagrin Falls Historical Society. John worked tirelessly these past six years on behalf of the Village; and as Council President, I relied on him for advice and counsel.
Leonard A. Spremulli, Mayor
Village of Bentleyville

Connect 4 Seniors Chore Referral Program
Connect 4 Seniors Chore Referral Program provides seniors with referrals for dependable paid workers. You will be provided with up to 3 separate referrals for the type of assistance you are requesting (i.e. carpentry, handyman, painting, etc.). Your referrals will have had reference checks completed by our volunteers and staff. You may then contact the referrals to discuss your needs. You decide and hire whomever you choose. The Chore Referral Program will continue with ongoing reference checks, by following up with you and others who have utilized the Connect 4 Seniors Chore Referral Program. They will find out if the job was completed and if the outcome was acceptable.
Contact the Solon Senior Center at (440) 349-6363 for more information.
SENIOR TRANSPORTATION SERVICE
Transportation service is available to seniors 60 years and older and adults with disabilities through the Senior Transportation Connection. This is a door-to-door transportation service to medical appointments, shopping, personal business, as well as to religious or social events. Service operates Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Call (800) 983-4782 for registration and scheduling information.
AUTO AND DRIVER REGISTRATION FEES
Just a reminder – when you register for your auto license or your driver’s license, be sure to specify “Bentleyville” rather than just 44022. That way Bentleyville will get the local portion of your fee rather than having it go to Chagrin Falls. Thanks for your help.
