Brunswick kicks off CHIP program with public meeting

The City of Medina in partnership with the cities of Brunswick and Wadsworth recently received a Community Housing Impact and Preservation Program (CHIP) grant in the amount of $1.2 million from the Ohio Development Services Agency. The grant provides for five basic housing activities: homeowner rehabilitation which will assist approximately 5 in Brunswick; matching funds for home repair which will assist approximately 16 in Brunswick; down payment assistance/rehab which will assist 1 in Brunswick. Assistance will also be provided to households in Medina and Wadsworth. The balance of the grant provides for fair housing and administration. The grant must be housecompleted by October 31, 2016.

All participants must meet eligibility requirements and be within the income guidelines for the program. A public meeting has been scheduled for December 3, 2014 at 5:30 pm in the multi-purpose room of the Brunswick Recreation Center, 3637 Center Rd. All programs and requirements will be explained. Applications will be available at the meeting or may be picked up in the Community Development office the day following the meeting.

If you don't plow your own snow, then it's time to start thinking about hiring a contractor. As usual, the City is supplying its list of registered snow plow operators. Click on the Fast Find menu above and select Snow Plow Operators.

Leaf collection continues

The leaf pickup program is still ongoing. The service crew is making passes throughout the City, tentatively ending around Thanksgiving.  Once an ending date is determined that information will be posted.

Please have your leaves placed as close to the street as possible without being in the street (leaf collection equipment will only reach 4’) and free of debris (grass, brush, rubbish, etc.) on the same day as your regular scheduled refuse pick up. 

Please remember exact date of leaf pick up on a particular street is not possible to predict due to weather conditions and quantity of leaves on a particular street.  We ask for your patience and understanding while our service crew members work hard to provide this additional service.

If you miss or do not wish to wait for the City of Brunswick leaf collection crew, leaves may be bagged for regular refuse pick up.  And remember there are many benefits to mulching leaves into your yard and composting leaves.
