Enter #LetsChillCLE Contest to Win Lunch with Mayor Jackson

‘Tis the season of sunshine, pools, sunglasses and ice cream. And the latter could win you lunch with Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams.

This summer, children in neighborhoods around Cleveland will see the city’s new ice cream truck staffed by members of the Cleveland Division of Police. In addition to serving cold tasty treats to children, the ice cream truck is an opportunity for Cleveland Police to engage with children in a positive way. In addition, the City of Cleveland is hosting a social media contest to spread the word about the new ice cream truck. The prize? Lunch with Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Police Chief Calvin Williams at City Hall – on us, of course.

The truck is made possible by donated ice cream from our friends at Pierre’s Homemade Ice Cream and the Cleveland Police Foundation.

How to Enter

To enter the contest, children or their parent/guardian need to do the following:

  1. Grab some free ice cream when the ice cream truck rolls through your neighborhood
  2. Snap a photo of yourself with the truck
  3. Post the photo and tag the City of Cleveland on one of our social media accounts: Facebook (@City of Cleveland), Twitter or Instagram at @CityOfCleveland (Note: We can only see photos set to the public setting.)
  4. Use the hashtag #LetsChillCLE

We’ll reshare photos as they come in. The contest runs now through August 18, 2017 at noon. Only one entry per person, please. We’ll pick a winner at random and announce it on all of our social media accounts. We’ll also reach out via social media.

Cleveland Road Work News: June 16, 2017

road work ahead

Thanks to Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s enhanced budget, made possible by Issue 32, the City of Cleveland is embarking on more street improvement projects in 2017 than years past. Projects span all neighborhoods and wards throughout the city.

Here are some highlights about this year’s road work:

  • Street resurfacing began on April 27, 2017 and will continue through the summer, weather permitting. The first resurfacing project took place in Ward 4 on Parkview Avenue near the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.
  • Potholes are serviced year round, weather permitting. The Department of Public Works has increased its pothole crews from three to 10 as a result of the passage of Issue 32.
  • This year, with the completion of the Pavement Management Study we have a graded system that allows us to select the streets that are in the greatest need of resurfacing. We are using the worst first approach to road resurfacing.
  • We are projecting to resurface 95 streets this year.
  • Thanks to Issue 32 funds, the City of Cleveland has reinstated street sweeping services.
