FOOTBALL GAME CEREMONY: Friday, September 16th at Harris Field. Thank you ceremony begins at 6:50.

Local businesses will be providing complimentary lunches to the forces all week long. (Thanks to Chagrin Valley Chamber of Commerce for organizing.)

John Mitchell Sworn In As New Council Member

John Mitchell sworn in as new Council Member 2016On August 18th, Village Council held a Special Meeting to interview candidates to fill the vacancy created when a council member moved out of town. We interviewed three very good candidates and voted unanimously to appoint John Mitchell.

John has lived in Chagrin Falls since 2005 and lives on Bell Street with his wife, Ann, and 3 sons. He has been involved in the Dad’s Club, holding various leadership roles, as well as the Chagrin Valley Jaycees. John started his career as an assistant prosecuting attorney for Cuyahoga County where he worked in the Major Trials Unit, prosecuting homicide, rape and public corruption cases. John is currently a partner at Thompson Hine where he focuses on Product Liability Litigation, White-Collar Crime and Business Litigation.

John recently chaired the Chagrin Falls Charter Review Commission, which is a group of residents appointed every 5 years to review the Village Charter and make recommendations for modifications or improvements. As part of that process, John and his fellow commission members held multiple meetings with department heads, employees, village council, village administration as well as various boards (e.g, ARB, BZA, P&Z). Everyone on Council was impressed with John’s organization, leadership and contributions to that process and thought those skills would translate well to Village Council.

John will be sworn in at our meeting on Monday, August 22.
