A Message From the Mayor

I always look forward to writing the Spring Newsletter because it allows me to put winter into the rearview mirror while looking forward to that first day of spring.

 I am pleased to report as we close out 2021 and prepare our budget for 2022 that Village finances are robust. We ended 2021 with a surplus and increased our reserves by 13.9% from $244,193.00 in 2020 to $278,062.00 in 2021.

            The surplus allowed us to make some long overdue capital equipment purchases in our service department most notably by adding two brand new 2022 Ford F-550”s 4×4”s with plow/spreader/and hydraulics to our fleet these purchases allowed us to replace older vehicles. These older vehicles were sold at auction offsetting some of the cost of the new vehicles but more importantly increasing our efficiency in all facets of the Service Department’s day to day activities and particularly at snow removal.

            In addition to upgrading equipment and increasing efficiency in the service department, we also made some personnel changes.

            Ryan Klemm is our new Service Director. Lloyd Nagle, Foreman and Erik Caporale is our new part-time employee in the department.

            With the hiring of Ryan Klemm, we will be able to complete most of the repairs to our equipment in house because of Ryan’s knowledge and expertise.

            Please see the other articles in the newsletter, one is from our Parks Committee about the activities planned at the Village Park this spring, summer and fall and another is from our Service Director with some important dates to keep in mind for the coming year. Also, you will find an article on the rails to trails project involving the city of Solon and the Metroparks.

             Residents can expect to see road and culvert maintenance taking place throughout the Village during the coming good weather months.

            The pandemic seems to be behind us. Many thanks to the Village Administrative Staff, Fiscal Officer Nickol Sell, Administrative Assistant and Police Administrative Assistant Jackie Papa for their tireless efforts during the pandemic and a special thank you to Police Chief Gabe Barone and the men and women of our police department.

            Finally, my thanks to Village Council for their assistance and cooperation in the business of running Village government during the pandemic with its various challenges, zoom meetings included.

Have a great spring and summer, and shake off those pandemic blues. Have a wonderful summer.

Leonard A. Spremulli, Mayor

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.
