Welcome and introductions were made by Anne Williams, vice mayor. Municipal Judge K.J. Montgomery administered the oath of office to Mayor Weiss. He made a few short comments.

Mayor Weiss appointed Council member Julianna Johnston Senturia to chair the new Sustainable Committee—approved. Mayor Weiss reappointed Council member Sean Malone to continue as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Shaker Heights Development Corp.—approved. Mayor Weiss reappointed Ronald Reed and Clifford Brown to the Landmark Commission for a three-year term expiring 12/31/21—approved. After this, the mayor specifically called out Jan Deveraux, who is retiring from the Landmarks Commission. He lauded her for her work for many years and her service to the city.

Mayor Weiss then reappointed Robert Sullivan and Marc Cicarelli to the Architectural Board of Review for a three-year term expiring 12/31/21—approved.

Finally, Council renewed the Master Services Agreement with Interstate Gas Supply for provision of natural gas services for the city’s Natural Gas Aggregation program for the period 4/1/19 through 3/31/21—approved.
