RITA Subpoena Program
Posted on: December 20th, 2018 by vanschoork No Comments

All taxpayers that receive subpoenas were first issued a non-filing notice and were given an opportunity to respond before a subpoena was issued. Subpoena recipients are instructed to appear in North Olmsted’s Council Chambers from January 14-17, 2019 to meet with a RITA representative. Taxpayers can avoid an appearance by e-filing their returns at:, mailing or faxing to RITA the documents listed on the administrative subpoena (also shown below).

Attn: Compliance Department 198
Regional Income Tax Agency
PO BOX 470538
Broadview Heights, OH  44147-0538
OR Fax to: 440-922-3510

While RITA makes every effort to properly staff the program based upon the number of subpoenas issued, wait times may occur throughout the day. Taxpayers who elect not to wait may leave the required tax documents with RITA staff and will be considered in compliance with the subpoena.

Winter Snow Operations
Posted on: December 15th, 2018 by wengerk No Comments

As temperatures drop and snow falls, our first priority is to clear and salt main routes, then secondary routes, then residential streets with school zones and finally all remaining city-maintained residential streets. All interior streets will be cleared and salted only at intersections, grades, curves, deep roadside ditches and main streets leading out of developments. Due to the size of snow removal equipment, some dead ends, cul-de-sacs and narrow streets may require follow-up with smaller equipment. Please keep sidewalks, curbs or gutters free from snow, ice, litter, trash, stones or debris. Also, no depositing of snow, ice and/or slush on any public street or any public sidewalk is permitted. As a sensible salting practice, there will be limited salting from 11:00PM to 4:00AM as salting is not as effective due to low traffic volumes.
