City Recognized for Manhole Maintenance Efforts
The City of North Olmsted was featured in an August 2018 issue of Trenchless Technology, a leading publication in the underground construction industry, which praised the city for its efforts at inspecting, maintaining and rehabilitating manholes to address inflow and infiltration issues in the sanitary sewer system. Systems Foreman Greg Peters was recognized for his crew’s dogged approach to finding problem areas, investigating solutions and making long-lasting improvements to keep our sewer infrastructure operating at tip top condition.

Heritage Home Program
Home improvements have never been easier. We’ve renewed North Olmsted’s participation in the Heritage Home Program for 2018. The Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS) offers free technical assistance and advice to the owners of houses that are over 50 years old. This year, more than 7,000 homes in North Olmsted qualify for this program!
Technical assistance involves site visits by CRS employees who evaluate the repairs or improvements that are necessary and appropriate for your house. CRS can provide a homeowner with a list of contractors that do the type of work your project requires. CRS also reviews and advises homeowners about contractor bids. Homeowners can apply for low interest mortgage loans at a fixed rate of 2.0% for up to 10 years. Heritage Home Program loans can be for interior as well as exterior repairs, maintenance, additions and modernizations. Kitchen and bath remodels are two popular uses.
