HARVARD ROAD IMPROVEMENT
The Harvard Road Improvement Project has started and will last through the month of August. The project will be upgrading the roadway pavement and performing some roadside drainage work. Two way traffic will be maintained during construction.
Residents are asked to avoid the construction area if possible. If you must travel through the zone please allow yourself some extra time because there will be delays.
Because the roadway base is being recycled as part of the project, there will be a two week period where no work between Brainard and Lander is taking place. This time is required to allow the recycled pavement to cure. The roadway will remain open as traffic is permitted on the pavement during the curing process.
If you have questions on the project please contact the Village Engineer, Mr. Brian Mader at (216) 731-6255
Water Bill Changes
Beginning July 2016, the stormwater fees for the Regional Stormwater Management Program will appear on customer’s bills.
To help address questions on the program and residential credit opportunities, informational workshops will be held across the service area. Sewer District staff will be on hand to address your questions on the program, the stormwater fee, and credits.

New Disposal Services
The Service Department has 2 new services to help residents recycle and rid their properties of debris. Learn more about the new:
Container Rental Service
We will drop off an 8 or 10 yard container during the months of April through November (weather permitting) to help dispose of brush, yard waste, construction debris or household debris.
You cannot mix items in the container but you can choose from several different types of materials to dispose of. Rental costs vary depending on the items that will be disposed of.
Please see the Container Regulations and fill in the Container Rental Agreement.
Please remember this service is for residents only. Contact us at 440-498-4403 for detailed information.
Scrap Metal Recycling
A new drop-off dumpster is available for ferrous and non-ferrous recyclables.
It is located at the Service Department, by the salt shed and is marked with a sign under the overhang.
It is for "Metals only" - no other trash or products.
Not only does the program allow for us to reduce landfill costs, it also earns $$$ for scrap. The program is provided/funded through an Ohio EPA grant (50/50 match).
Enhanced Exterior Maintenance Inspection Program
Orange Village is conducting the exterior maintenance
In response to recent survey
results indicating a growing concern for the decline in
property upkeep throughout the community, the building
department will be stepping up its property maintenance enforcement.
and Zoning Inspector will drive through the community and evaluate the condition
of properties via a site inspection from the street. Exterior areas of all properties shall be kept free of any
objects, materials or conditions which may create a health, accident or fire hazard or adversely affect the
value of surrounding properties: including but not limited to such objects, materials or conditions as peeling
paint or bare untreated exterior surfaces, broken or dilapidated fences, decks, porches and accessory
structures, missing or broken windows and doors, unlicensed or immovable vehicles, and/or collections
of junk, rubbish or debris outside dwelling structures. If the inspector sees any violations of the Village’s
Ordinances, he will document the violation then prepare a first notice letter to the property owner. Property
owners will then have ten (10) days to contact Tom Shields, our Housing and Zoning Inspector, with either a
plan to correct the violation(s) or with a statement of intent to appeal the violation(s). If the property owner
does not contact the Housing and Zoning Inspector within the designated time specified in the letter, they
will be expected to correct the listed violation(s) within thirty (30) days of the date of the initial violation letter.
A follow-up inspection will be made after 30 days. If the owner has corrected the violation(s), the file will
be closed. However, if the violation(s) still exists the Inspector will generate a second and final violation
ticket. If the property owner refuses to cooperate with the Housing and Zoning inspector (or the Building
Commissioner) and does not file an appeal, the matter will be turned over to the Village Prosecutor to
proceed with legal action. A list of the violations, including the ordinance number
that the inspector will be looking at can be found on the Village Website under
the building tab.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Housing and Zoning
Inspector Tom Shields at 440-287-5134 or Building Commissioner Dave Strichko
