Here are Bay Village Mayor Debbie Sutherland’s calendar of community events for December:


Leaf Pick Up Extended


Due to an early snowfall many residents were unable to complete their fall yard cleanup by the Nov. 25th final yard waste pickup.

The Bay Village Service Dept. will be going through town for the next week picking up brown yard waste bags that are out.  After Dec. 12th if you have yard waste (bagged leaves or grass clippings) to dispose of you’ll need to put it in the blue garbage cans for regular trash pickup. Leaf trucks will continue picking up leaves piled on tree lawns. Brush trucks will be picking up branches as time and manpower permit.

NEW Bay Village T-shirts are available at City Hall, 350 Dover Center Rd. Mon.- Fri. from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Long sleeve shirts are $20 and short sleeve shirts are $15.

Shirts are also available for purchase at BAYarts, 28795 Lake Rd.  Great gift idea!
