SOUTH EUCLID - LYNDHURST BOARD OF EDUCATION - School Board President, Bill Kent, spoke about the progress being made at Bolton School. He said there was a problem with the contractor, but it appears that the work is moving ahead. Mayor Cicero said the ground had been graded and that the final grade would be completed so that grass could be planted. With regard to parking of cars on the property overnight, Mayor Cicero suggested communication between the Board office and the Police Department.
 
The meeting was opened to public comment:
 
Susan Casiere, 5211 Edenhurst, felt that garage sale rules should be amended so that residents could advertise their sales in places other than their property. She felt that all signs must be removed immediately when the sale is over. Mayor Cicero said that the Building Department does remove signs whenever possible.
 
Mr. Ward recalled conversations that had taken place with regard to the proliferation of signs in the public right-of-way advertising various sales. He said it is Council's goal to make those businesses accountable for that litter. Mr. Murphy said he had consulted with the City Prosecutor regarding this matter and he indicated that the City's current ordinances are enforceable and will cover the proliferation of signs for advertising in the public right-of-way, which is not legal.
 
Mr. Ward mentioned that the July 4th Concert will take place in the park at 7:30 P.M. with the Hillcrest Concert Band, and requested help from his fellow Councilmen.
 
Vice Mayor Marko announced that Council would begin its summer schedule and meetings would be held on the first Monday of June, July and August. Regular meetings would resume in September.
