Owning a sewage treatment system is a big financial investment in one's property. Proper operation and maintenance of a sewage treatment system is important to ensure efficient operation that does not create a nuisance or pollute our valuable water resources.

From Mayor Doug Davidson

Dear Kirtland Residents,

While we can never be sure exactly what is in store for us in the coming year, the Capital Improvements portion of the city budget does give some insight. An important aspect of the Capital Improvements plan is the source of funding for each project. Funds from the Lake County Stormwater Management Agency, the Ohio Public Works Commission Grant Program, local road levy funds, and city general funds are used in various combinations to make projects happen. I also anticipate the city working closely with James Gills and the Lake County Engineers office on the first phases of the SR 306 work.

This year we anticipate work on the following projects:

SR 306 Slope Stabilization: This work will be contracted and involves securing the roadway from failing as you travel south up the hill toward the school.

Eagle Road (West): This project contains numerous stormwater, safety, and paving improvements. The work will be conducted by our service department crews.

Recreation Park Culvert Repair (North Side): This work will be contracted; the project goal is to maintain safe access to the recreation park. When complete we will have pedestrians and cars separated by a guard rail on the road.

Raccoon Hill Culvert Restoration: This project is already approved by City Council and the contract awarded. It will solve a failed deep culvert situation and restore the drainage.

Local Roads Improvement: I will be publishing the 2017 road plan in early March. We are in the process of evaluating and formulating a strategy. The plan will be published in the Kirtland Chronicle and available on the city website (

There are a number of projects that reside on the list of needed capital improvements that are not yet funded. Among the currently unfunded items are the Wisner Rd. Bank Stabilization, Rockwood-Ledgewood drainage improvements, and a potential additional crosswalk for the school.

Finally, thank you to John Karlovec, the publisher of the Chronicle for allowing my notes on the city to be published each month. I hope as residents we support his efforts in publishing through our donations.

Best Regards,
Mayor Doug Davidson
