The Quality of Cleveland Life Report

Posted By on Wed, Jul 25, 2012 at 9:30 AM


Your guide to living in fabulous Cleveland.

Nickel and Dimed: Cleveland Heights offers weekend of free parking, but fails to adequately post signage telling patrons to keep their quarters in their pockets, because Cleveland Heights is a dick like that.

Operation Metcalf Up the Middle: 51 agencies conduct a full-scale disaster drill in the Port of Cleveland. Not to be confused with the 53-man full-scale disaster that happens at Cleveland Browns Stadium eight days a year.

Dirty Words: Neighbors in Fairfax wish Cleveland Clinic employees and patients wouldn't dump cigarette butts around the community away from the smoke-free campus. Clinic wishes there weren't so many damn poor people around the campus.

This Week's Index:
Taking Ed FitzGerald's lead on transparency, you're soliciting bids for your weekend activities in secret and will let the winning party know Friday night at 8 p.m.
