Temporary refuse rate reduction

The standard refuse rate for the City of Brunswick households will be temporarily reduced from $58.35 to $50.67 for this quarter (April 1, 2015 thru June 30, 2015). This reduction is directly related to the tipping fee decreases approved by the Medina County Commissioners and the City’s contractual obligation with the trash hauler. This reduction is expected to be temporary but the City felt it was important to pass along those cost savings to the customers. Once the CPF and related tipping fee discussions are resolved by the Medina County Commissioners, the City’s refuse bill will then be amended accordingly.

Brunswick RTA bus route #451 is now the 251

rta busRiders of the #451 RTA bus at Laurel Square should expect a nomenclature change beginning March 1st. The bus route will be renumbered the 251.

GCRTA informed the City that the bus route itself will not change -- nor will the scheduled departure and arrival times. Also, the buses will continue to display "Brunswick" as their destination. They simply will no longer use the separate 451 designation when they travel beyond the Strongsville Park and Ride into Brunswick. In short, riders will see no change to the bus service other than the number, 251.

No meeting

The scheduled March 5, 2015 meeting of the Ethics Board has been canceled.
