Resident files new complaint against CH City Council
To the Editor:
For years, Cleveland Heights City Council has been abusing Ohio's laws regarding executive session—holding meetings in private.
A couple of weeks ago, the Council Committee of the Whole went into executive session to discuss who will be appointed to the 25-member Racial Justice Task Force.
[According to Ohio law,] they can only do that when they're discussing appointing "a public employee or official".
So, I filed a complaint with the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas.
Openness, transparancy and accountability from our elected representatives shouldn't be this hard.
