The director and assistant director at the Westlake Recreation Department are swapping jobs.
Under Westlake’s current five-year contract with Rumpke Consolidated Companies Inc., automated collection of trash and recyclable materials is scheduled to begin in August. However, the company can elect to alter the contract and continue the current collection method.
Westlake police arrested a 74-year-old Cleveland man in connection with the April 5 incident in which five gunshots were fired at an office building.
Under the contract, teachers will receive no percentage raises for the 2014-2015 school year, and step increases, or increases in pay based on years of service, will be frozen for one year. Teachers can still receive more money next year if they obtain a more advanced academic degree or reach milestones in steps toward such a degree.
