To help combat the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the City of Strongsville’s tax revenues, all full-time city employees not covered under a collective bargaining agreement – as well as the mayor, department heads, service department workers and building inspectors -- will be placed on a 32-hour work week starting June 1, resulting in an eight-hour weekly furlough (a 20 percent pay reduction).
The furlough will not affect police, firefighters or dispatchers. All three operations will remain ready to respond.
As a result, though, Strongsville Municipal Offices at 16099 Foltz Parkway will have new hours of operation. Starting the week of June 1, the offices will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and will be closed on Fridays. Departments affected include the mayor’s office, finance, engineering, building, law, economic development, service, human resources, communication and City Council offices. Mayor’s Court will also be closed on Fridays.
Service Department personnel will be scheduled so that workers are available to respond to any potential emergencies.
The furloughs will stay in effect until at least Sept. 1, when the city’s finances will be evaluated and a decision made about returning to normal hours. We apologize for any inconvenience.
