Temporary River Closure
After all the rain that our area received last week the Cuyahoga River levels are running high and fast which resulted in four 911 river rescue calls this weekend. Thankfully everyone was safely extricated but Chief Tosko said there were some harrowing moments for both the kayakers and our firefighters.
So in the interest of safety, Chief Tosko and Parks and Rec are placing signs at the river access points warning residents of the high water hazard and closing access to the river until further notice when the river levels go back down.
