Democracy Day

Published: February 27, 2017

Brecksville Human Services, Gathering Room from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm

The presentations and Public Hearing will begin at 6:30 pm at the Human Services Center and we will again encourage Brecksville residents who wish to either present input or just observe the process to be in attendance during a three hour window (6:30 pm to 9:30 pm).  The Hearing may continue beyond 9:30 pm if more time is needed to allow everyone who wishes to speak the opportunity to do so.   Please continue to watch the local media and this webpage for announcements regarding the Democracy Day Public Hearing.

We remind you that the Ordinance provides that, “all citizens of Brecksville will be permitted to submit oral testimony for a period of at least five minutes per citizen”.  All Brecksville citizens are welcome to speak.  We ask that speakers please confine their comments to five minutes as a courtesy to afford everyone an opportunity to speak,


CodeRed Testing

Published: March 04, 2017

Don't be alarmed!

CodeRED will be testing the system at noon.
The City has three emergency sirens, which are strategically located at the north, central and southern sections of the City.
When the sirens are heard at any time other than Saturday at noon, residents are advised to seek shelter immediately and monitor radio, TV or the National Weather Service weather radio.
If there is a “Tornado Warning” in Cuyahoga County or northern Summit County, meaning an actual tornado has been sighted, the Brecksville emergency siren system will be activated for three (3) continuous minutes.
DESCRIPTION OF ALARM TONES
1. Tornado: The tone of the sirens will be four (4) seconds of increased pitch followed by one (1) second of low pitch for a total of three (3) minutes continuously. An alert will take place whenever a TORNADO WARNING is issued for Cuyahoga County or northern Summit County, or when there is a confirmed report of an extremely dangerous weather related situation that could threaten the safety and lives of residents. People are urged to take cover and keep informed by TV or weather radio.
2. Disaster or Attack: The tone of the sirens will be one (1) second of high pitch followed by one (1) second of low pitch, for a total of three (3) continuous minutes. This will create a type of sound to warn the public of an extremely dangerous situation (other than weather related) and signal residents to employ protective measures and take cover.

Hip Opening Workshop
Sunday March 26 from 2pm to 4pm
Cost $20 – Please sign up at front desk
Over this 2 hour workshop you will delve into hip opening poses, learn what the benefits of doing them are, and how to perform them safely.
You will gain a greater understanding of the anatomy of your hips and will use standing, seated and supine postures to increase your range of motion in all directions.  We will work on stabilizing the hips and lower spine and conditioning and releasing the muscles around these joints, resulting in a new freedom of movement.
Please wear comfortable clothes and bring water.
