University Heights Exceptions Analysis meeting is canceled

The University Heights Council Committee of the Whole meeting scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 4 at 7p.m. to discuss the Exceptions Analysis prepared by the Northeast Ohio Sourcing Office has been cancelled. A new date will be set next week.

The Exceptions Analysis made recommendations about how the city could save money by outsourcing services and collaborating more with other municipalities.

The recommendations for outsourcing were extensive: fire & rescue, garbage pickup, snow removal, leaf pickup, street salting, payroll, housing inspection, jail facilities, police investigations, human resources, information technology, training-planning-management and purchasing.

These recommendations were part of a $25,000 study, which the city contracted for last January with David Akers, founder of the Northeast Ohio Sourcing Office. Ebie Holst, a principal of Strategic Gear, partnered with Akers to conduct the study.

A copy of the “Exceptions Analysis” by the Northeast Ohio Sourcing Office is on the University Heights Web site, www.universityheights.com.
