With the clock ticking down to the installation of Cuyahoga County’s new government, the ink was flying at the county commissioners’ final two sessions. They signed off on some 150 contracts, some of which they presumably read.

The transition team of County Executive-elect Ed FitzGerald is combing through each of them, just in case any suspicious plumbing jobs or massage parlors earned last-minute stamps of approval. One questionable contract with a former county employee was removed from the commissioners’ agenda, and a request was made to delay several appointments until the new government is on board.
